There are loads more ghosts and characters available than whats listed. If you want to play them, go for it! Also if you need help with face claims, I'm happy to help!
Kid at death
Casper is the most obvious cartoon ghost you could have. He's a kid, he's friendly, what's there not to love? He would definitely be a school ghost I think. Probably Hogwarts. Hell maybe he is even HUfflepuff's house ghost. It's up to you really. Same with his background since it's left pretty open. I'd just love to see more ghosts.
Also his uncles are encouraged if you are inclined to make them!
Another giggly child ghost. Again, could be a school ghost. Since she was at an all girl's monster school perhaps the girl's dorm ghost at Beauxbatons? She's kind of high pitched, energetic, and bubbly, so she'd be one of the nicer ones I'd imagine. Her age is up to you, but she appears to be a tween-early teen in the movie. Still, it's really up to you. Tadashi is willing to be the big brother to all the kid ghosts!
Young at death
Danny Phantom Ghosts
There are so many options to choose from with Danny Phantom's canon. Ghost chicks, ghost dudes, ghost kids, a ghost who changes ages, another who shape shifts. Hell there's even a dragon or two around there! They don't have to be good, or necessarily hang around a school. Skulker could be a magic creature poacher who passed on, Desiree could've been a seer in her life time. It's really all up to you.
Though if you want a lot of school interaction some might include Young Blood, Sydney Poindexter, Penelope Spectra, Bertrand, Lunch Lady, Box Lunch.
I don't really know much about this show. I've seen a couple of cringe worthy episodes with some poodle-man and hick cat spirits with leaves on their heads ordering fast food. Really though, the characters are Yokai, or Japanese spirits. Just personify one and bam, you have a ghost. There's loads of wacky characters to choose from. Some may be more ridiculous than others (I'm looking at you weird pee inducing elephant).
This character is from a lovely slice of life show called Natsume Yuujinchou's Book of Friends. Pretty much a kid who sees ghosts, and has a book with the names of Yokai written in it due to his grandmother winning fights with them. He is able to release them from the contract to serve by giving their names back. He doesn't really want to fight yokai. He'd rather be friends or have nothing to do with them.
I imagine he could be a student getting harassed by the ghosts around him. Perhaps if still a student, he's an intern in the spirit division? As an adult working there is encouraged, but he could also just be a guy who puts up with a lot of ghost shit too.
Like Yuujinchou, he's a guy who can see stuff other people can't. In his canon it's demons, but they can always just translate to spirits in the Bombverse. He's a trouble child, but after loosing his foster father, he promises to be the best exorcist so he could slay satan. He's a typical Japanese-punk-with-a-heart-of-gold character. He may be stupid but he also shows a lot of talent.
Since in canon he is a student who goes to exorcists cram school, I can definitely see him being a student and obnoxious intern. He's loud and runs head first into everything, how can you not love that?
Also pretty much any other character from Blue Exorcist is welcome. They all could be well adapted to being in the spirit division of the ministry. Bon, Shima, Konekomaru, Shieni, and Izumi could all be part of an intern program while Yukio, Shura, and other adults can be actual professionals working with them. Plenty of opportunity.
Ghost Hunt Characters
If you haven't seen Ghost Hunt stop what you're doing and watch it now. It's a simple but beautiful anime about this girl breaking equipment and getting into ghost hunting to pay the guy back. It has a lot of great characters.
There's Kazuya Shibuya AKA Naru the Narcissist. He's the young owner of the ghost hunting company who gets his equipment broken. He is serious, kind of full of himself, and rather cold towards people letting him down. He knows people have talent though, and will respect and work with them. He's kind of mysterious and a jerk.
Mai Taniyama is a student who got dragged into it. She does possess some psychic ability, and eventually learns how to properly help with research and investigations. Being new to it, she can be started by the spoopy easily. She's compassionate towards the clients and coworkers, but also easily annoyed by their antics too.
Monk (that's not his real name it's his profession but idk his actual name cause no one uses it) is a laid back guy who tries to help calm the mood. He's well informed about spirits, and is one of the older people of the group, sort of taking care of the others as a big brother figure.
Masako is a young medium who clearly crushes on Naru. She gets hurt or ill in almost every investigation and seems totally useless. Her way of helping is by sensing the aura of the room, where the spirit might be, and it's feelings. I clearly don't like her but don't let that stop you from apping her if you want.
John Brown is an australian priest. He's polite, nice, and is always trying to help where he can. He tends to assist by blessing items or water for protection. He is very empathetic towards others and the ailing spirits, making him a good middleman.
Last but not least is useless lady number two, Ayako. She's one of the older characters as well, and a shinto priestess (I think that's what she is? idk). She is hot tempered, often having snide remarks and occasionally even hitting Monk when he makes his own comments. Most of her conclusions are "it's an earth bound spirit." Her exorcisms also don't seem to work very often because her ritual requires a connection with a tree spirit or something like that.
How could I leave classic characters out? The original four are all in cartoons and video games. Unfortunately Holtzmann and the crew are only mentioned. But there are new playable characters in different video games, some of which are female! (and one looks like Holtzmann just saying) I don't think these guys really need explaining though.
The resident Brit of Bombarda, Sigyn lives in the U.K. where she’s just graduated as a chemist/mad scientist. She has been endowed with the names Sig the Sweet (awwww) but also Sig the Slayer due to an unfortunate habit of truly torturing the characters she claims to love so much. As of November 2016 she has gained the titles 'Queen of Suffering' and 'Pain Mom'. And she is very proud of them.
If you’re looking for juicy drama of grand proportions for any of your characters then she’s the girl you want, but if you’re looking for something cosy and nice... well, maybe give her a wider berth.

Pop-up Characters & Thread Roulette Got ideas for characters you want to play but just can't make the commitment of adding them to your roster? This month's event lets you try them out for just the month with no big application process, so you can get a feel for them without having to make it official. We also have a thread roulette event where these new characters and all our old ones will be ranomly mixed up and assigned a thread prompt to work with. Check out both things in this board!
"It's the first time that Talia and Loki come across each other and the chemistry between them is already starting to show. They talk about little things really but the chemistry is there. [I nominate this thread] because it shows their personalities and their demons but also how they are better apt at leaving them behind when they speak." - Eranda
"The two almost smack into each other in the hallway, and they decide to go to a nearby muggle pastry shop (which Talia hates to admit is pretty amazing), where they get to know each other. My poor bean Talia doesn’t understand why she can’t stop staring at Loki and why everything he says and does makes her smile, but oh, she’s enjoying it. It’s their first meeting, and there’s instant chemistry that neither of them can explain. I love seeing Talia go from murderous to “Oh my god, he smiled at me!” They’ve both had such rough lives that seeing them be happy is so gratifying." - Cissa
"After a surprise reunion in the ministry, Phoenix and Miles decide to meet up outside of a work situation for once, after a conversation about 'good food' spiraled into almost a dare. After a fairly common faux legal battle over a pair of keychains in their possession, the two head to a fast food joint, where Edgeworth is forced to attempt to order a burger for the first time... I was torn between which of the two WrightWorth threads to nominate for this since I knew it would have to be one of them. I settled for their actual date because there's some really funny moments and it's more light-hearted without the added tension of them seeing each other again for the first time, so the whole thing resonates as more happy. I love this duo, their banter and chemistry is fantastic, and I'd love the chance to write them again if Data manages to get some free time. If you like this thread though, I'd definitely recommend you read I Guess That's Déjà Vu as well!" - Sigyn !
"After the events of All Eyes On Me, Takumi awakens in the hospital and the auror who saved him, and a general mentor figure in his life, Jameson Locke, comforts him. Takumi experiences a rollercoaster of emotions, that even turn into him wishing death on his assailant, but the biggest thing on his mind is the guilt he feels over surviving, and the shame over the mark he now has on his hand. If iHodor is my happy thread person, Greenie is my feels queen. Like iHodor, we go way back and it'd feel criminal not to nominate this thread. I read this thread and I feel the pain of both participants and especially for Takumi this was a bit moment of vulnerability for him that broke my heart everytime I replied. Me and Greenie have done many things like this (when we worked on our fics we often pseudo rp'd between our characters) but seeing both of our actual prose styles back to back like this made it an even bigger punch in the gut." - Claire
"The thread is set in an alternate universe where Katelyn quits from the Auror department after the raid in "All Eyes On Me," because the Aurors would not allow her to work on The Riddler investigation due to her past ties to him and Oswald Cobblepot. She had since decided to take matters into her own hands. This thread starts out with Kate getting a riddle from the one person she had yet to cut out of her life *cough* Takumi *cough*, and subsequently solving it to find one of The Riddler's old puzzle rooms, and The Riddler himself (live on a big screen). She now finds herself way over her head, playing The Riddler's games, because at some point they have to lead back to him. I was torn between this and "Hell Hath No Fury" (which is basically the same point of time but Kate's not losing it and Oz is involved). But I chose this thread because of the "what if" of it all. Like, I have not written stuff like this before. Kate is not a dark character. She's depressing sometimes and her canon story has one (1) dark arc, but she's typically pretty happy. It's a "what if Kate stopped caring," "what if she did this or that," "how does she play the game" and I'm loving how everything is unfolding. And Ed-sorry, The Riddler : P-is a Trip to write with in this point of his timeline too. He's reimagined himself as the magical super villain, and the tech /puzzles he's come up with to get there and remind people of just who he is is awesome. Sigyn ! does a freaking amazing job writing him. This thread also hold two milestones for Kate: her 100th post (!!!!), and the longest reply I have written to date. Like, that sucker is nearly 2,000 words long, because how Kate plays his game has already nearly gotten her killed once thus far, and walking the wire takes some words." - Graced
"About twenty years from now, Talia is the minister of europe and Ed is The Riddler. She lures him out by demoting him from Undesirable No. 1 to Undesirable No. 2, putting a random petty thief in his place. He breaks into her office, as she anticipated, and they banter and threaten each other and are just generally children fighting on the playground even though they have power. The insults are strong with this one. Talia and Ed have a strange and beautiful relationship. From the first time they met at the Ministry library and kicked the verbal crap out of each other, they’ve been so much fun. I love seeing Talia let loose and speak her mind about Ed, and I love watching Ed knock her down several pegs in return. It’s especially fun when the stakes are high—in “crown,” her wand is strapped to the underside of her desk, and she’s ready to fight." - Cissa

01 Jun Hey guys! It's been a while since I've posted in here since we've all been running quite smoothly with out different events but not too much to report. I'm dropping in today though to say a huge thank you to Kyros who has done a wonderful job as our aesthetics mod but is now stepping down.

We have a pop-up character and a thread roulette event up here, and all this and more is explained in Update 10.
