A progressive romance roleplay on Rai Island.

Welcome to Rai Island!


This is a progressive
(Anime Style) Roleplay Forum!


This Roleplay takes place within the sandy white shores of Rai Island, which is located in the American territory of the vast Atlantic Ocean. Rai Island is known worldwide for its remarkably brilliant boarding school, Valevay High. The students that attend and manage to survive its rigorous courses and earn a diploma are highly sought after for their knowledge and talent, seeing as only the most gifted and intelligent students graduate with their class. Aside from Valevay there are a number of schools your character can attend (from primary to college) located throughout the island! Keep in mind you need more than books smarts to survive Rai Island. You’ve got to be strong-willed and able to handle yourself in tough situations… not all the island dwellers are neighborly; it does have its handful of ruffians. Keep your head up, your wits sharp, and most of all have fun!

Kyren Ari Stills

Hello there my fellow Roleplayers!
Sorry for the delay but "Mr. Rodeo" had too much personality for just one month! Anyways lets kick him to the curb now and welcome our newest and most anticipated character, Mr. Moody himself,

Kyren Stills

From the words of our lovely Sui, "Like a true Cancer, he is moody and reserved!"

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

True this young man is rather rough around the edges. Far from your "friendly" average highschooler. Secluding himself majority of the time Kyren immerses his attention and talent into his sketchbook. However his stoic aura is shaken only when his adorkable little sister, Emma is in his presence! If your lucky (very very very lucky) when she shows up you may even see him crack a smile. And who knows he may even have a smile that makes girl's swoon! But it's usually gone just a quickly as it appeared.

Okay, lets just get it out of the way and say this boy has an undeniable sister complex! Unwavering in fact! After loosing their father at a young age Kyren promised to protect her in his Dads place. He spends the majority of his time making sure Emma is happy and healthy! Also for her own good he battles to keep the Samo strays far away from her. Now Kyren isn't ALWAYS, as his creator may claim, a Drama King! He can be very compassionate and more than willing to treat you as family if he finds you trustworthy and you become close enough with him.

So, some advice when crossing paths with this eyeliner wearing teen. Keep your loud antic to yourself they certainly don't impress him (just ask Lena)! Keep sugar out of his reach, it makes his do very very bad things! ;) && Don't and I mean DON'T touch his sister!
Follow these simple rules, and you might survive!

Now off to the Interview! This one should be a HOOT!

Okay, so we know that over the past several months there has been very little activity in the roleplay! But really that wasn't the intial point in creating this forum in the first place.
Rai Island is what brought us all together. It's our home away from home, so to speak! We are not just a Forum full of gifted and creative writers . . . however a place full of wacky and crazy friends ;)
A place where we are creating unforgettable memories!


Even though we are constantly changing and still knee deep in finding ourselves in the world; we know that through the tears that fall and the smiles that grace our faces we will always have each other! Because no matter where our lives take us, nothing will change so much that we are not all friends still!

&& We will always have RaiIsland to come back to! Our Island ♥
Okay, okay enough of the cheesiness!
I love you CRAZY ladies!

    Name: Cecilia "Celi" Shiel
    Age: 19 Years Old
    Birthday: April 16th
    Gender: Female
    School: Nova Cari University
    Occupation: Fashion Designer

    Appearance:



    Personality: Strong willed, determined, and just a bit quick tempered. Cecilia Shiel, otherwise known as Celi, is the older sister of Martin Van Buren's own Mimi Shiel. Far more observant and worldly than her "flighty" little sister, Celi does her best to look out for and look after her sister, all the while still focusing on her studies in fashion at Nova Cari. If asked, her friends/team would describe her as "passionate, work driven, a little scary, and more then a little crazy sometimes". She's certainly not afraid to speak her mind or do what needs to be done to achieve her goals, in fact, Celi's considered a force to be reckoned with if she has her sights set on something. Not one to judge others solely on rumors, and despite the terrified pleas of her friends, she "befriended" John Wilder and got him to model for her. Though the two seem to fight and banter more then anything else, she finds their arguing "entertaining" and trusts him quite a bit.

    Background: The eldest daughter of the ever busy Shiel couple, Celi has acted as Mimi's primary caretaker since an early age. A responsibility she doesn't take lightly because of how neglectful her parents can be due to their constant working overseas. It's because of that fact that Celi doesn't really see eye-to-eye with them anymore, viewing them as irresponsible parents who don't really know their own kids. And wishing they would stop being overly paranoid over nothing and butt-out, rather then interfere with their daughter's lives that they are hardly apart of.

    Additional Info: She's been known to use the measuring tape she carries with her as a whip. While she never meant too, Celi has gained a reputation for being somewhat of a heart breaker. This is mostly because when an admirer asks her out, she absentmindedly agrees, completely forgets it because she was thinking of something else, then never shows or calls. Her design team is name "Fleur".

    Character Relations: Mother: Maria Shiel, Father: Krios Shiel, Biological Father: Renard Bellerose, Younger Sister: Michelle (Mimi) Shiel




    Maria Shiel - - - - - - - - - - - Renard Bellerose - - - - - - - - - - - Krios Shiel




    Name: Michelle (Mimi) Shiel
    Age: 15 Years Old
    Birthday: December 18th
    Gender: Female
    Grade: 10th
    School: Martin Van Buren

    Appearance:



    Personality: Mimi always has been and probably always will be a "girly-girl". She simply adores all things cute and sweet, her biggest love is fashion, and would rather go shopping then spend time studying. She likes staying cheerful and happy rather then sad or upset, and even though her school is supposedly full of "ruffians", she prefers to see it as them being "lively" more then anything else. Mimi, while not dumb, isn't what others would call brilliant either. She's "flighty" at best, being easily distracted, and isn't all that interested in learning. And while she doesn't have a huge grudge against Valevay High like others of her school do, she's not a big fan of them either, mostly due to some of the more stuck-up students teasing her for being an "air-head".

    Background: A fairly new resident to Rai Island, Mimi and her family moved to their new tropical abode 3 years ago because of her parent's work. While her mother wished for her to attend the "safer and nicer" Valevay High, because of her not so amazing grades she ended up at Martin Van Buren instead, something Mimi doesn't mind in the least. Her older sister was the one who got her interested in fashion to begin with and loves to make hand-made clothes and accessories with her baby sister, something they both enjoy since they share the same since of "cute".

    Additional Info: "Mimi" is the nickname her older sister came up with for her when they were little and it stuck. She likes to make jewelry to go along with the clothes her sister makes.

    Character Relations: Mother: Maria Shiel, Father: Krios Shiel, Biological Father: Renard Bellerose, Older Sister: Cecilia (Celi) Shiel

    Name: Kenta Evans
    Age: 17 Years Old
    Birthday: March 6th
    Gender: Male
    School: Valevay High
    Grade: 12th Grade

    Appearance: Hair Color Changes Daily




    Personality: Cheerful and always willing to make light of things, Kenta is more then happy to be described as a "class clown" or "free spirit". He prefers not to worry over small problems, seeing them as just a small bump on a big road, and prefers to try and live his life to the fullest instead. He's one of the few people that is close to Shiori, them having known each other since childhood, and tries his best to encourage her to be more open with others. Kenta has a love of art and all things he dubs "interesting", something he proudly shows by dying his hair different colors almost everyday, but is a bit protective of his sketches since he's embarrassed about others seeing them.


    Background: As the son of a Japanese/English marriage, Kenta got more then his fair share of teasing as a child because of his foreign looks. He never let it get him down though, instead he took to dying his hair a rainbow of colors everyday because he liked showing off how "different" he was, and now it has become habit for him to do so. Despite his cheerful outlook on life, his individuality still made him a target of bullying growing up but it was through this that he met his best friend and fellow "weirdo" Shiori, her having saved him from a bunch of older kids when they had first started middle school. Since then he has dubbed her his "best butt kicking friend ever!" and him her "first and most awesome friend/world translator". His parents allowed him to tag along with Shiori to the US, so that he could "look after her" and explore the world.

    Character Relations: Mother, Father, Grandparents, Best/Childhood friend Shiori
    Additional Info: Even though he's been friends with Shiori since they were kids, he's never picked up any martial arts moves from her, his "butt kicking" skills being completely nonexistent.






    Name: Shiori Akane
    Age: 17 Years Old
    Birthday: September 4th
    Gender: Female
    School: Valevay High
    Grade: 12th

    Appearance:



    Personality: At first glance, Shiori appears to be quiet, calm, and aloof. But the truth is, she doesn't really know how to communicate well with others. She's naturally polite to those she has just met, but once she opens up to someone she's rather carefree and cheerful, if not a little awkward or spacey sometimes. While she's overall nice to others, Shiori can have a bit of a temper if someone knows how to push her buttons, though she never resorts to violence unless provoked. Shiori's closest friend is Kenta, whom she has known since childhood.

    Background: Since she was a child, Shiori has excelled in both swordsmanship and martial arts, something that was taught to her by her father and grandfather who were both masters of the arts. But due to her natural quiet front to strangers and reputation as a deadly fighter, her classmates and peers often avoided her, seeing her as "dangerous" and "unapproachable". A Japanese girl born and bred, her father sent her to a private school in the US as a way for her to learn about the world and a chance for her to get along with others without her background getting in the way.

    Character Relations: Father, Grandparents, best/childhood friend Kenta
    Additional Info: Kenta and her family jokingly call her a modern day samurai because of her skills and manners.

    Name: Kae Ramon
    Age: 16 Years Old
    Birthday: May 15th
    Gender: Male
    Grade: 10th Grade
    School: Marvin Van Buren

    Appearance:



    Personality: Polite, smart, kind, and just a little quiet, Kae is just the type of guy you'd except to see at Valevay High, except that he goes to Martin Van Buren instead. Due to bad luck he missed his only chance at attending the prestigious private school, but deciding to use his misfortune in his favor, he's now determined to show that you don't need a fancy school to make it big in the world. Because of his new found determination to prove the underdogs worth, he shares his fellow MVB's rivalry with Valevay, though mostly on the academic scale since fighting is not his forte. Being raised by only his mother, he's naturally polite and kind to girls, finding them a bit easier to deal with then other guys.

    Background: As the only child to a single parent, Kae did everything in his power to make his moms life easier. Whether it be taking care of the shopping, cleaning, or even getting a part-time job to help ease her burden. He had originally wanted to attend Valevay High because as an elite school, the graduates had a higher rate of succeeding in the future, but due to his family's financial trouble he couldn't simply sign up. He aimed for getting a scholarship but bad luck on his part made him miss the chance to register for one.


    Additional Info: He works part-time as a waiter






    Name: Galaxia "Gala" DuBois
    Age: 19 Years Old
    Birthday: July 29th
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: College Student/Design Assistant/Hair Stylist

    Appearance:


    Personality: Flamboyant, loud, and full of energy, this is what best describes Rai Islands one and only "Gala". And you better be happy there's only one of him, this diva does not like to share the spotlight! Well except for with his close friends in the "Fleur" design team, for all his attitude and crazy antics, Gala is a loyal friend, even if he does seem to annoy everyone with his outrageous personality. Passionate in everything he does, Gala is the type who likes to be over the top and noticed by all. But you men better watch out, this homo can be down right creepy when he's crushing on someone!

    Background: Galaxia, or Gala as he likes to be called, is the resident "gay best friend" of the Nova Cari University design team "Fleur". He met Celi back in high school and they've been "best gal pals" every since, even though it seems like all he ever does is annoy her with his antics. But when Celi first started her design team, she knew that Gala had to be part of it and he gladly agreed, after all it wasn't a party with Gala!

    Name: Max Reece
    Age: 19 Years Old
    Birthday: May 5th
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: College Student/Design Assistant/Photographer

    Appearance:


    Personality: Don't let these smooth looks fool you, Max is far from being a classy Casanova. In fact, he's loud, easily frustrated, and a crazed perfectionist when it comes to photo shoots and his pictures. The best known ways to calm him down? A good slap to the face should do it, or just let his girlfriend Clair deal with him, that usually settles him down to a semi-calm state. But that won't keep him down for long, this man is almost always on the move, and if he's not, then covers your ears because you're in for some complaints. Probably the only time he's not being impatient is when he's out with Clair on a date.

    Background: Back when Celi had created her own design team, she had scouted Max to become the groups photographer. While unsure at first, he quickly changed his mind upon meeting another member of the group, Clair Rowan. It was love at first sight for the photographer, and as soon as he joined, he spent every moment they saw of each other trying to win over her heart. After 3 months, 1 week, 9 hours, and 42 seconds, she finally agreed to go out with him and they've been a happy(?) couple ever since.

    Name: Clair Rowan
    Age: 19 Years Old
    Birthday: October 10th
    Gender: Female
    Occupation: College Student/Design Assistant/Business Manager
    Appearance:


    Personality: Smart and sensible, Clair has to be the only level-headed person in "Fleur", and she knows it too. This chick the go-to girl when you want something done. Reliable, fast, and business savvy, these are all the reasons why Celi wanted her on her team. Aside from them being best "female" friends that is. Clair's also the one who keeps everyone on track, her "firm but fair" attitude, along with a cool head, has helped settle more then one fight. It's also this same attitude that keeps her ever-moving boyfriend in line when he gets loud and impatient.

    Background: Back in her first year of college, Clair and Celi had become instant friends while in a shared class. This friendship would only grow as Clair helped Celi start her own design team, helping her hand pick the members and being an ~unexpected~ key figure in getting Max Reece to join. While initially not interested in seeing Max outside of group projects or casual meetings, he eventually won her over with his persistence and steadfast loyalty. The two have since have been in a steady relationship.

    Name: Lexus "Lexi" Arber
    Age: 19 Year Old
    Birthday: February 8th
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: College Student/Design Assistant/Make-up Specialist
    Appearance:


    Personality: Timid, kind, and caring, Lexi is most definitely the most peaceful of the group. Always trying to help, sweet little Lexi is easily swept away by others more confident personalities ~especially Gala's~, but that never stops him from trying anyway. Lexi is also often the one picked on by others, mostly because of his habit for crossdressing, but despite being a push-over he tries to never give into hateful taunts and is thankful his friends stand up for him whenever he can't.

    Background: The design teams resident crossdresser, Lexi was brought into the group after Celi and Clair had witnessed him doing a public make-over session and were greatly impressed by his skill. Though not as loud and rambunctious as Gala or Max, Lexi fit in rather well with the group and was always more then happy to be of help with projects, outings, homework, cleaning Gala's bathroom, and other things.

    Name: Bentley Albertson
    Age: 8 & 3/4
    Birthday: September 18th
    Sign: Virgo
    Gender: Male
    Grade: 4th
    Occupation: Student, the "brains" behind Bobby's gang

    Appearance:

    Personality: Studious, level headed, and just a tad sarcastic, Bentley is most definitely the brains behind Bobby's ragtag crew of troublemakers. From using his grade school genius to acing hard math tests, to figuring out ways to make Bobby's schemes a reality, this pint-sized wizkid always has a gadget ready and waiting to help! Although whether they actually "help" or not is highly debatable. Still despite being the youngest and smallest out of the trio of boys, Bentley is also the most mature, and always has a intelligent, calm, and most of the time, overly complicated, comment ready to "explain" things for his friends. But intelligence or not, Bentley is still a kid at heart, and isn't without his own childish tendencies and unique quirks. Such as becoming a compulsive clean freak whenever he's agitated, nervous, or stressed.

    Biography: As the only child of a pair of normal bakers, Bentley's life was incredibly dull until he met Bobby Wilder. The two hit it off the very first day of class, and with their mutual friend Murray, this dynamic trio has been getting into more mischief than the island can handle. But in Bentley's calculated opinion, the only thing that made this small rag-tag group of boys any better was the much need female additions of Sam, who's gutsy personality and sharp eyes have saved them more than a few times, and her close friend Chloe, who's medical care was indubitably needed on their "missions".

    Additional info: When Bentley is working he usually listens to music, what he listens to can vary depending on his mood, but it's been noted to range anywhere from Classical to even air-wave static. He also likes to keep a number of things with him in his backpack in case of emergency or just because he feels he needs them, including: A laptop, various wires & plugs, a full miniature tool set, various tools for measuring things including some plastic beakers, several bottles of heavy duty glue & tape, a set of cleaning supplies, an extra pair of shoelaces, hairspray, an old radio, a light switch, and various other things that tend to change daily.

    Character Relations: Mother, Father, Grandparents

    Name: Chloe Valentine
    Age: 9
    Birthday: October 5th
    Sign: Libra
    Gender: Female
    Grade: 4th
    Occupation: Student, the "nurse" for Bobby's gang

    Appearance:

    Personality: The resident sweet heart of the bunch, Chloe is by far the least rambunctious of Bobby's adventurous crew, but that certainly doesn't mean she's a quiet little wall flower! This little girl is passionate about anything and everything that captures her interest, will go above and beyond the call of duty for those she cares about, and is always willing to lend a helping hand to those that need it. From listening to someone's troubles, to caring for a sick friend; Chloe is a natural caretaker and loves nothing more than cheering up those around her. But ever the die-hard romantic, this little girl is a force to be reckoned with when she's in love and you can bet that nothing will get her down for too long when true love is on the line!

    Biography: The daughter of a single father, Chloe grew up helping wherever she could, so this little girl has a wide range of domestic talents. However her true passion lies in medicine, much like her father, who works as a pediatrician at the local hospital. She enjoys helping out her dad at the office, and never misses a chance to pick up some helpful tips and tricks that she could use to help the gang on their many adventures. In fact, it was her love of medicine that led her to getting to know the reckless bunch in the first place! After her close friend Sam brought the lot of them to her house for a major patch job that is...

    Additional info: Despite being the most domestically inclined of the group, some of Chloe's favorite hobbies are swimming, rollerskating, and after seeing a live match, tennis.  She thinks the Wilder family has magic love powers from Venus because of how popular they all are. And due to her being a rather hopeless romantic, Chloe has some major interests in fantasy, mythology, and astrology.

    Character relations: Single father, grandparents on her fathers side, uncle

    Name: Samantha Fields
    Age: 9 & 1/2
    Birthday: April 22nd
    Sign: Taurus
    Gender: Female
    Grade: 4th
    Occupation: Student, the "eyes" for Bobby's gang
    Appearance:

    Personality: Reckless, stubborn, and blunt to a fault, Samantha Fields or just "Sam", is considered the "eyes" of Bobby's rag-tag gang of troublemakers cause this tomboy's always ready to call'em as she see's them. A go-getter through and through, Sam rarely ever lets anything stand in her way if she has her sights set on something. Can't find the ice-cream truck? Sam'll happily climb the highest tree she can to spot him. Girl's not allowed to play soccer? Watch her high-jack the ball in the middle of a game, and outrun all the guys on top of that! Of course being "one of the guys" doesn't mean this chick is without her caring side, Sam's always willing to look out for the little guy or the more soft-spoken, and there's no one more supportive of her best friend Chloe's romantic pursuits than she is, even if she doesn't quite get the whole "romance" thing just yet.

    Biography: Her father's a photographer, her mother's a journalist, her uncle's an astronomer, and her brother's a search and rescue? It's no wonder this chick has always had a knack for spotting things, it's in her very blood! Of course it's also how she became acquainted with Bobby and his crew, after she watched them raid the donut shop and milkshake shop right under everyone's noses that is... But more than eager to join in on the fun, Sam quickly tracked down and became friends with the mischievous group and established herself as the perfect lookout for all their trouble-making deeds!

    Additional info: Sam lives at the local planetarium just outside of town with her uncle and older brother since her parents are abroad most of the time for work. But she gets more than her fair share of souvenirs from them in the mail, and her room is chalk full of exotic knick-knacks! Her favorite present of all though will always be the pair of binoculars her parents sent from the savanna, which she always has on her and uses during the crews exploits.

    Character relations: Father, mother, older brother, uncle
