P.S. Fall is one of my favourite seasons, second only to summer (I can't stand the cold!). It's the perfect weather that allows you to dress comfortably warm, and there's a slight breeze in the air that keeps you from overheating. Also... Halloween and seasonal drinks?? ^_^

Notes: I will be referring to Comet_Rider2000 as Isla throughout this application.
This app was created using the browser, Chrome, although it should also function properly in Firefox and Safari.

Now that that's out of the way, let's move on, shall we? :)

All About Jazz and Her Pets

The Applicant

Online

First off, I'd like to introduce myself. As you already know, I'm Jazz, and I've been an avid Neopets player for over ten years (on a previous account). On this site, I have five accounts:

starress (main) | starress_side_1 | starress_side_2 | starress_side_3 | starress_side_4

If I'm not trading NC, you can always find me lurking the PC or working on my pets, which includes giving them characters, lookups, and Petpages (I love to code). A lot of them are still under construction as school has started back up and I can't play as often as I used to during the summer, but I have many plans to complete the majority of them. ^^ (Currently working on Myzoty!)

Offline

Off Neo, I'm a university student studying Biology and French in hopes of someday becoming a teacher. I like to sing, read and write, play the piano, watch TV, and sometimes make graphics for myself (although I'm not very good at it). I also like to swim and horseback ride. For more information about myself, feel free to check out my portfolio here!

Now that you know a little bit about me and my pets, let's go on to the wonderful Isla ~


Plans

Housing

Yes, I actually do have plans that involve more than simply staring at Isla! c: First and foremost, she would be kept on my main account, starress. I am not planning on converting, zapping, nor trading her, which means Isla would definitely be permanent. She would be extra special as she would be my very first UC Faerie as well! You do not have to worry about her rotting because she has given me so much inspiration :)

Battledome Training

As I do with all my other pets, I would buy codestones and dubloons to train Isla until she is strong enough to fight in the battledome. Although Lupessah is my primary BD pet, I actively train all of them (even those on my sides).

Raising Intelligence

Books are one of my main priorities. As you can see, I am the kind of person who likes to smarten their pets up for Neoschool — constantly buying books to raise their intelligence. I would do the same for Isla. After all, what would be the use of a pet if their Battledome stats were beyond amazing, but their intelligence was dull?
Here is where you can see that I care about the amount of books my pets read, although you are welcome to look at my other pets as I "feed" them reading material as well.

Customization

As I mentioned earlier, I absolutely love trading NC and creating new looks for my pets (click here to view my lookbook — currently under construction however as I just got a spiffy new layout!). I tend to spoil my pets and Isla would be no exception! As my second UC, I expect dressing her up to be a bit of a challenge, although I look forward to trying something different.

These are just a few of the many customizations Isla will have; I have much more planned for her!

I've already managed to hunt down all of the items needed for Isla's outfits; you can preview Looks #2 and #3 on Camiluna and Xyke.
Additional closet items for Kol can be found here.

Petpet Matching

One of the first things that I would do is make sure that Isla has a Petpet. I would probably match her with a Magma Werhond. Why that, you may ask? I like to pair up my pets and their Petpets by making sure that the Petpets either help keep things in proportion (in terms of personality), or look somewhat similar to the pet itself. For example, my darling Renovare is a complete devil, and his Petpet is an Angelpuss. Opposites attract, right? c: On the other hand, my RG Peophin, Cyndenia, has a Delfin.
Please click here to see the Werhond I have purchased for Isla (I plan on buying a Magma Petpet PB later on).

Character/Lookup/Petpage

Another thing I have prepared for Isla is a character (information about this can be read in the next section). She'd also get her very own lookup customized to fit her, and a Petpage with her storyline would be created as well. Like I said earlier, I'm still working on my pages but you will see that most of my pets have their lookups done along with personalities and story ideas. That being said, please click here to view the lookup Isla would have.

Character Profile

Isla's character resembles something of a nightmare hound/lightning berserker. Once human, he triggered the curse by accidentally hunting a dire wolf — the only breed of wolf that elicits this transformation. He now hails the storms; thunder and lightning are his best friends and he will destroy anything in his path. He is able to manipulate lightning such that it will strike wherever he so wishes, and even generate illusions to confuse his victims.

Basic Facts

Full Name: Cassius Finneus Kolton Lazareign
Pronunciation: Cass-See-Yiss • Fin-Nee-Yiss • Coal-Tin • Laz-Zer-Rain
Nickname(s): Kol, Finn, The Unknown
Pronunciation: Coal • Fin • The Un-Noan
Gender: Male
Birth Date: October 19th
Age: 18 years (immortal)
Height: 70 cms
Weight: 81 lbs (just going with the stats on his lookup for now)

Kol serves Xyke, known as the Guardian of the Underworld (another pet of mine whose storyline is intertwined with Kol's) by fetching lost souls for him. Xyke is responsible for keeping watch of the burning forest surrounding the gates to the Other Side, and prevents any unwanted visitors from entering (or fugitives trying to cross back over to the living world, for that matter).

When Kol is hunting a soul, he uses a deceptive yet valid system that actually gives them a chance to redeem themselves through a test of sorts. As he is closing in on a target, he zaps lightning near them that produces an illusion — this illusion physically takes the form of something that they find comfort in (be it an old pet, a friend, etc.). If the person resists the hallucination, they have passed the test and are allowed to return to the living world. If they succ.umb to the illusion however, the once-comforting image distorts into something they fear most (a nightmare), at which point Kol comes and takes their soul.

His nickname, "The Unknown", refers to the brief period in time in which a person is neither "officially" living nor dead — thus, a lost soul roaming the realms of the unknown. Their fate is also unknown; will they pass or fail Kol's test? It is said that Kol does not possess a soul, which is why he is capable of doing what he does.

An interesting characteristic to note about Kol is his connection to the moon. Each nightfall, he is strengthened by the moon's appearance as he absorbs its energy through moonbeams. This is particularly useful to Xyke, whose only weakness happens to be moonlight. During an eclipse however, Kol remains invincible for a period of 27 hours. His howl is an omen signifying a death approaching.

Kol has a thick, dark coat that enables him to cloak himself within the shadows. He wears the skull and bones of a dire wolf — a wicked, sinful reminder of his very first opponent. He is a very large, intelligent creature of great power. One snap of his jaws can easily crush bone, which he collects as souvenirs for those that fall victim to him.

Story Summary

Due to a glitch in the code where quotation marks do not appear at the beginning nor end of sentences, bold text will be used to represent dialogue and italics will represent thoughts. To access the summary, simply scroll inside the box as you read.
Who are you?

That is the first thing people ask when they meet you. Or better yet, when they can't see you and they're afraid. You can hear the panic in their quivering voice, see the quick flickering of their eyes, sense the hair rising on the back of their neck. You can smell the fear on them.

I said, who are you?!

A pathetic, short-lived attempt at appearing brave. *scoffs* They're getting desperate. You can tell that their mind is rapidly weighing their options — fight or flight? Which will it be? It's a fun little game I like to play before I make my final move. My patience is thinning. Time's up.

I emerge from the shadows, ominous dark clouds trailing my steps.

Not who, I correct them, but what.

I am a Nightmare Hound. Checkmate.


I used to be human, you know. I had a family, lived in a house, went to school. I even had a German Shepherd as a pet — Khan. I don't remember too much except that things were mediocre at best. Maybe I had a better-than-usual birthday party or two. Other than that, meh. Human life is too standard, too routine. There's no time for adventure when you have to adhere to a strict schedule of wake up, eat, work, sleep, repeat. Except when my dad took me hunting. Those were the best days. Hunting is one of the few memories I have left as a human.

My father was a no-nonsense man, the epitome of tough love. Every Sunday, he'd head out with his buddies to the woods and bring home that night's dinner. I aspired to be like him; to return a champion and actually have something to show for it. During the spring, he would poach deer the most often, much to my mother's delight as it was her favourite.

Father only took me hunting on special occasions, like my birthday or the first day of Open Season. One of my fondest memories was helping him snag a caribou. I was especially proud, since my sister found them extra tasty. Back then, there was no better feeling than being able to support my family and provide for them in whatever way I could.


So what caused me to transition from human to monster? I'll tell you.

I was no older than eighteen when we were out on a regular hunting trip — except it was the most dangerous time of year. Bears had just started coming out of hibernation. You had to be extra cautious of your surroundings in case you came across any that were groggy, dazed, and hungry.

But it wasn't a bear that came after me. It was a wolf. A dire wolf, in fact. And there is nothing worse than being hunted by a dire wolf. The reason being is that if you don't survive the attack, then you die. Besting the beast however elicits the unfathomable. You become one.

It wasn't until it was too late that I realized I had done just that. In all its rage, I had forgotten the legend entirely. My only aim was to destroy or be destroyed. Upon its last breath, I felt my whole body tremble as the transformation initiated.

My coat was thick and dark, allowing me to conceal myself with ease amongst the shadows. My night-vision was spectacular, and my hearing impeccable. I wore the skull and bones of the very wolf I had slain — a wicked reminder of my sin.

Now I serve the Guardian of the Underworld and keep watch of the burning forest that surrounds the gates. I fetch him lost souls that wander aimlessly through the trees, with a little twist of my own technique. I collect bones as souvenirs for those that fall victim to me.

You did a bad thing for a good reason.

I was only trying to stay alive. I don't need to justify it. Isn't that always how it goes?

Please note that this is only a small excerpt from Isla's story. I of course plan to elaborate on it and add extra chapters that contain more about her such as her history and future (i.e: adventures/quests she will be trying to complete, her journey to transition back into a human). Her Petpet's role comes in later on.


Why Isla?

Why did I choose Isla over any other pet? What makes her so special?

Having always been a huge fan of Lupes due to their close resemblance to wolves (my favourite animal), I have admired the UC Mutant Lupe for a long time. I'm usually not a fan of Mutants, but I absolutely love the way that bones are incorporated into the Lupe's appearance. To me, the design of the converted Mutant Lupe is too plain and boring. The UC Lupe however has a smirk which I adore, making it look devious and bold (who could resist it?!). It is simply perfect for the character I have in mind.

Secondly, I really love __UhKnown__'s name! I know nowadays people can be extremely picky, but I don't mind the underscores at all. I think his name is special and quirky, and adds to his character. __UhKnown__ might be considered decently-named or even badly-named according to PC standards — making him thus harder to trade — but isn't that just another reason to give him a permanent home? ♥

Not to mention, Kol reminds me so much of one of my most favourite childhood movies, Balto. I have always wanted a Lupe that looks as fierce as him, although I have never come across any that I liked enough until now.

The majority of my pets have been adopted out to me, if not created and painted/morphed myself. I have never once gotten tired of them, even those that I have had for over six years now, such as Lupessah, Chyrstl, or Renovare. I still adore them as much as the day they first came home, if not more so. I have no doubt that Kol would have a very fulfilling, permanent home with me.

If for whatever reason at some point I could no longer keep Kol for myself, I would of course return him to you. I have done this before in the past, and in the event that the owner decided they had no interest in keeping the pet either, I proceeded to adopt them out — I don't believe in using adopted pets as trading fodder; it's simply not right.


Why Jazz?

Now that you know why I applied for Isla, why should I be chosen to be her new owner?

Having always been a huge fan of Lupes due to their close resemblance to wolves (my favourite animal), I have admired the UC Mutant Lupe for a long time.

Conclusion

Well, that's it! My application has finally come to an end. I apologize for it being so long, but hopefully it was interesting! I want to thank you, Savannah, for reading through everything and giving me the opportunity to apply for Comet_Rider2000. If you have any questions whatsoever, feel free to mail me! I really hope you enjoyed reading my app as much as I had fun making it, and will consider me as a future owner for her! ♥ I know that even if you don't choose me, Isla will go to a loving home. Best of luck adopting her and your other pets out! :)

Sincerely,
Jazz
