[Sample Guest Star NPC application 1/2]

Name: Tom Riddle, aka Lord Voldemort.
Canon and Medium: Harry Potter (the books, specifically).
Age: 71.
Pre-Incarnation Species: Human/half-blooded wizard
Pre-Incarnation Appearance: Pale, red-eyed man with a severe lack of nose. Link!
Any Differences?: Before beginning the echo process, he had a significantly less snakelike face and brown eyes. He will have echoed back his canon appearance by the time he shows up in-game.
Starting Location: Locke City.
Pre-Incarnated History: Wiki link.

Reincarnated History:
• His childhood was essentially the opposite of canon. Two loving parents, with Tom as an only child who grew up with very few other children around him.
• Became an art teacher in adulthood, quickly proved himself a favourite amongst his students. Think Bob Ross. Yes, he had the hair.
• Never married or had children. Considered himself married to his job, and the kids he taught were as dear to him as his own would have been.
• Retired at the age of 65, but still guest-ran art workshops at a youth centre every month or so, until...
• April 1, 2013 - gets his first echo from the pink light in the sky. Stops running art classes and becomes far more reclusive than his previous self. Accesses the network after a few months, but doesn't post.

Echoes Received:
• His first echo was the return of Voldemort's snakelike features, ensuring that Tom had to isolate himself and stay in hiding.
• Voldemort's wand.
• The ability to use the Unforgivable Curses: Avada Kedavra (the killing curse), the Cruciatus Curse (which inflicts terrible pain on the victim) and the Imperius Curse (which forces the victim to do the caster's bidding).
• The ability to project a Dark Mark in the air using the morsmordre spell.
• The ability to apparate (ie: teleportation magic. This will be limited to places within Locke's echo boundary).
• A series of personality-based echoes: Voldemort's complete lack of empathy or mercy, his secretive nature and his megalomania.
• A few memories: he recalls essentially controlling the wizarding world in 1997 and has memories of killing various people. He also remembers saying the following:

"You know my goal – to conquer death. And now, I was tested, and it appeared that one or more of my experiments worked ... for I had not been killed, though the curse should have done it. "

This is completely without context, meaning Tom believes himself to be immortal and invincible even though he isn't.
