Canon Character Rules!
There are a few things you need to know when applying for/playing a canon character on Struggle of Souls.
1.Priority: If you are playing a canon character they should be your main character. Threads with them should take priority over those with your OC characters, especially if you are in a major plot thread.
2.Interactions: Feel free to have your character interact with any character you want, as long as it makes sense! The witch queen isn't going to just have a casual chat with any Shibusen student who walks up to her door. Keeping with sense, do not put your character in a situation if it will become too much. Throwing the witch queen into the heart of Shibusen for example is a bad idea unless there is a very good reason for it. Pretty much if they will end up killing everything avoid the situation.
3.Limit: For simplicity's sake a player can only have one canon character. The only exception may be a staff member using a character like Sid for teaching purposes if the character is not claimed.
4.Effort: Put effort into making a canon application and playing them. Research the character and make sure you know them well before trying to audition for them.
5.Activity: If you have control of a canon character please keep them active. If you do not at least log onto your character or acknowledge your existence for a month you will lose control of the character. If you neglect your character for over a month(not posting with them if you have threads) you will lose control of them but be able to apply again after a month break. If someone else takes them before you you have lost the character.
6.Copying: In case it wasn't obvious from before Do Not Copy a character's information from the wiki! If you can't portray the character correctly on your own you're better off not playing them.
Please note, canon character applications should be made to the very best of your ability. If there is a noticeable lack of commitment to the application how can there be a strong commitment to the character?
