♚ Characters from around the world are allowed. While Brakebills is situated in North America, the institution accepts students from all walks of life with magical aptitude.
♚ Characters can only be 18+. Feel free to make older characters if you wish, but as this is a university setting, we'd like to keep all characters above basic undergraduate age.
♚ Unnatural hair and eye colours ARE allowed. However, please state somewhere in your written app that the hair is dyed/they wear contacts.
♚ It is a college/university, so no uniforms! Your character is free to wear whatever they like, as long as they keep in mind the school setting.
♚ While having a detailed backstory is good, please try to make sure their traits and backstories are balanced and not over the top!
Despite what the series says not all magic has to come from pain.
♚ Having magician parents are okay. However, magical aptitude is NOT entirely based on blood relation, so being the child of magicians will not make your character more powerful or more talented.
♚ Each student is entering as a first year, regardless of their age. They have just discovered magic (or have no idea what it is yet) and have just been recruited. Please write your history to reflect that! No character should have five years of magic under their belt already, though they might have done some mild experimenting before finding Brakebills. For the sake of simplicity, the setting is that all characters have been scouted by Brakebills and passed their preliminary examination, no exceptions.
♚ Have fun and make your character original!
