This is modern day. People and Teachers live together rather peacefully since nowadays the people forgot about them. Or thought they were myth. There hasn't been conflict between them since ye olden times. Back then they would burn the Teachers. They were witches then, but Teachers are the politically correct term. In the olden times, the Teachers often gathered in terms of 2-5. Teachers would get apprentices, because it's difficult for the Teachers to do many things. Teachers were shifters, and they had a certain species that they shifted into in the day time. You don't normally see birds buying brussel sprouts at the local grocery. Or lemon-bat blood potion. Which they probably don't even sell at the local grocery. That's the need for apprentices.
Teachers- They are relatively normal, except they are extremely old. Like, hundreds of years.
Apprentices- Normal kids. They don't know Teachers even exist, so it comes as a great shock when they stumble upon Teachers doing magic. (All apprentices must be aquaintances, and be with each other when they find the Teachers)(All Teachers have known each other for decades at least)
PLOT!~ Teachers are growing together again, reforming the Terms. They won't reveal why yet, to the apprentices, but it's gonna be good! (Characters must be evenly distributed, and I will match you together personality-wise, if you have a problem, or preference, email me and I'll be sure to match you up with whomever you choose. After we get more than four people to join I'll start pairing you up.)
TERMS- Nik and Angel
Ava and Avalon
Teacher or apprentice-
TEACHER ONLY!- What species do you shape into? (EX. Bird, dog, cat....)
Past, up to when you stumbled into your apprentice/Teacher-

Name- Nicholai Vanderpool (Nik)
Age- 425 years
Personality- Very, very serious. He's got a good heart, though. He will crack a joke every once in a while, but is a born leader.
Past- Born in 1586, to Gregory and Elizabeth Vanderpool in Ireland. That was when his father killed his witch of a wife and almost killed the witch child. He tried to drown the baby, but everyone knows you can only kill witches with fire. The poor baby Nik floated downstream until he was carried to a small village where he grew up and had a good life. He only figured out he was gifted when he was eighteen, the age when you stop aging as fast as others. He was going to marry the fifteen year old Allison Leeuwenhook, but had to leave her at the altar after faking death. He cut off his leg and pretended to bleed to death, after they buried him he escaped from his grave and traveled the world. After a while, he met others like him and grew to personally know them and travel with them. He soon went to North American in the nineteenth century and loved it so he stayed there until 2011. As soon as it was decided to leave again, thats when he met his apprentice...
