So you guys can get an idea of Zara now a bit after her revamp. Still need to redo her profile but this should do for now

PJO OC: Zara Ye

  • 19 years old (Is actually 77 years old)
  • Daughter of Poseidon, 
  • Chinese, Filipino( Kapampangan), Mexican 
  • Hair: Dark brown, wavy, hits just below the shoulders.
  • Eyes: Blue (sometimes they are more of a storm blue, other times a bright sea blue)
  • Demisexual, Panromantic 
  • Good Traits: confident, compassionate, creative, spontaneous, trusting, protective, intuitive, 
  • Flaws: moody, dense, becomes jealous easily, insecure, doesn’t with change very easily(clingy), passive aggressive. pessimistic 
  • Born just before the 1920s. Was a teenager during the 1930s
  • Zara and her mother, Maria, lived in Sacramento, California. Maria struggled to keep her daughter and herself well kept during the Great Depression. Zara decided her mother would be better off without her, and at age 15 she left, along with a few other of her classmates who decided the same thing.
  • Her group of companions and herself traveled around getting jobs where they could. Most of the time Zara would be a babysitter or a maid, she only would get a job in a factory every so often. She died at age 18 in a factory accident on October 24, 1938
  • Obviously she remained in the Underworld for 77 years and came back when Thanatos was captured. Didn’t adjust very well to the modern world at first. 
  • She didn’t end up at Camp Half Blood right away, instead she actually spent a few month in a homeless shelter where a few satyrs found her. Normal people often ignored her, thinking she was crazy. Currently resides at Camp Half Blood and was claimed soon after arriving.
  • Has amnesia. At times she can remember everything about her life before she dies, others she can barely remember a year before the accident. The only clear she always has is what her mother looked like.
  • Zara abilities are primarily centered around water. Bit of more of horse/sea animal whisper then she can actually have a conversation with them
  • Love clothes and makeup, always wanted to be a flapper girl when she was younger. Uses slang from the 1920-30s more then modern stuff. Very family orientated, right now she considers most of the pre-pacts as her family.
  • FC:  Kim Chiu

thats about it for now. I know there is more but I will make future posts

Blue Moon Water ☽◐○◑☾ 

I purchased this lovely blue jar from a yard sale awhile back, and decided to paint moon phases on it, since it’s what I will be using to hold my Full Blue Moon water tonight! Displayed with a few of my favorite quartz and some pine incense ~

News: G-Booster 02 “Soaring Ascent of Gale & Blossom” to Hit Western Shores in May

Yesterday evening the English-language Vanguard portal’s products page updated to include the logo for VGE-G-BT02: Soaring Ascent of Gale & Blossom, an upcoming booster set still unreleased in Japan. Known through various translations as Flying Flowers and Soaring Beauty prior to this, the set did not have an official English title when first announced in Japan, causing others to use its native Japanese title Fuuga Tenshou (風華天翔 “Wind Flower Heaven Soaring.”) The initial lack of an English title lead some to speculate that G-BT02 would not be coming to the west, and would instead be folded into another set akin to the fate of MBT01: Neon Messiah.

G-BT02 features primary support for the Neo Nectar, Aqua Force and Great Nature clans, with secondary support for the Gear Chronicle, Royal Paladin, Narukami and Cray Elemental clans. The set’s revival legion is Dragonic Kaiser the Crimson, its cover card is Flower Princess of Vernal Equinox Primavera, and in addition to Blue Storm support it also features cards designed to bolster dedicated Maelstrom decks. Soaring Ascent of Gale & Blossom will release in Japanese on February 20th 2015, and in English on May 22nd of the same year.

And Now For A Word From The Vanguard R&D Department!!

伝説の海軍が、更なる双闘の力を得て進化する!

本日ご紹介するカードは、2月20日(金)発売の『風華天翔』で登場する、《アクアフォース》の新たなレギオンユニットだ。
レギオンアタック後、手札から「ミハエル」か「ミロス」を捨てることで、リアガードの隊列を自由に入れ替えた後、2体をスタンド!
最大のブースト付きのアタックを狙ったり、さらに2回の追撃を狙ったり、戦局に応じて理想の隊列を作り出せるぞ。
さらに注目すべきは、レギオンメイトの「ミロス」が持つ“抵抗(レジスト)”能力!
フィールド上にいる限り、対戦相手の「選ぶ」「選び」と書かれた能力では選ぶことができない。
たとえば「クロノジェット・ドラゴン」の能力には「選び」と書いてあるので、山札の下に送られることはないというわけだ。
退却や呪縛を受け付けないので、《アクアフォース》が得意とする連続アタック戦略を安定して狙っていけるはずだ。
強力な隊列を組んで、波状攻撃で勝利をつかもう!

【ユニット設定】
かつて名将「メイルストローム」が直々に率いたとされる「蒼嵐艦隊」の一員。 「ミハエル」大佐は第473世代、「ミロス」大尉は第502世代のアクアロイド。 現在の「蒼嵐艦隊」は今なお存命の「メイルストローム」を総指揮官に据え、その直下で複数の分隊指揮官が動かす大部隊となっており、“アクアフォース”全体の3割近くを占めている。 ミハエルはその分隊の一つ、第三四艦隊の指揮官であり、ミロスはその副官である。 どちらも各世代唯一の生き残りであり、高い能力はもちろんの事、数多の死線を潜り抜けてきたという強運も相まって、艦隊を率いるに十分過ぎるほどの素質を備えている。 やや人間味にかけ、機械のように淡々と行動する指揮官と、機転がきき、搦め手を得意とする副官という真逆の組み合わせは意外にも相性が良く、彼らが配属されてからの三四艦隊は、以前とは比較にならない目覚ましい戦果を挙げているという。

【抵抗(レジスト)Q&A】
Q1.「星輝兵 ブラスター・ジョーカー」の2番目の起動能力を使われました。リアガードの「ミロス」とレギオンメイトの「ミロス」は、それぞれどうなりますか?
A1.「相手のリアガードをすべて呪縛し」というテキストは“抵抗”能力では防げないため、リアガードの「ミロス」は呪縛されます。「相手のレギオンメイトを1枚選び」というテキストでは、レギオンメイトの「ミロス」は選ばれないため、退却しません。

Q2.「抹消者 ガントレッドバスター・ドラゴン」の起動能力を使われました。リアガードの「ミロス」は選べますか?
A2.「相手は自分のリアガードを1枚選び」というテキストで選ぶことができません。他のリアガードがいれば、そのユニットを選ばなければいけません。

The legendary navy evolves with even more Legions! Today’s cards we’;re introducing are new Legion units for Aqua Force that appear in 『風華天翔』, which comes out February 20th, 2014. After a Legion attack, you can discard “Michael” or “Milos”, exchange the positions of your Rearguards, and then Stand two of your Rearguards. You can aim for a fully boosted attack, or two attacks one after the other. You can create the ideal troop ranks based on how the match is going. But what you should pay more attention to is the “Resist” ability of its Legionmate, Milos. As long as Milos is on the field, your opponent’s effects that mention “Choosing” cannot choose it. For example, it means it can’t be chosen by the ability of “Chronojet Dragon”, which means it can’t be sent to the bottom of the deck. Since it can’t be affected by Lock or Retreat, it makes the continuous attack strategy of Aqua Force even more stable. Form a powerful formation and win by attacking in a series of surging waves!

[Unit Lore]
Members of the “Blue Storm Armada” that was once lead by the former great commander, Maelstrom. Michael is a Captain of the 473th generation, while Milos is a Lieutenant of the 502nd generation of Aquaroids. The Blue Storm Armada is still led by Maelstrom, who is still alive, but he’s now the supreme commander of the navy, and as a result, the armada has become a huge force with multiple squad commanders serving under him, and now accounts for nearly 30% of the total forces of Aqua Force. One of those squads is led by Michael, commander of the 34th fleet, and Milos is his right hand man and aide. Both are the only survivors of their generations, and exceptionally skilled, and they’re also extremely lucky as they managed to escape from the very verge of death, making more than qualified to lead the fleet. They come over as impersonal, acting and working like machines, but they’re quick witted, and their real strength is being able to cover each other’s backs. As a result, the 34th fleet they were assigned to has been able to make unprecedented military gains.

[Resist Q&A]
Q1. It use the second Activate ability of “Star-vader, Blaster Joker”, what happens to a Rearguard “Milos” and Legionmate “Milos”?
A1. Since “Resist” does not prevent “All of your Rearguards being Locked” text, your Rearguard “Milos” is Locked. However, the “Choose 1 opponent Legionmate” text cannot choose and retire a Legionmate “Milos”.

Q2. I use the Activate ability of “Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon”, can I choose a Rearguard “Milos”?
A2. It cannot choose it with the “The opponent chooses one of their own Rearguards” text. If there are other Rearguards, they must be chosen instead. 

3

The general term for the troop lead by the awakened Vice Admiral “Maelstrom”. Only elites with outstanding ability in all aspects, such as martial power and tactical intelligence, are allowed to join this troop. Though being unstable, it is said that they can even surpass the Tidal Troops if they exert their true strength. Thus, they have become the center of attention within Aqua Force.

And Now For A Word From The Vanguard R&D Department!!

今日のカードは、『煉獄焔舞』に収録される《アクアフォース》使い待望のレギオン! アニメでもその力を遺憾なく発揮した、蒼龍レオンの操る超強力ユニットを紹介するぞ!! 
「蒼嵐波竜 テトラバースト・ドラゴン」は、4回目以降にアタックした時、パワー28000&クリティカル2のレギオンアタックだ! 《アクアフォース》の得意とする位置を交換する能力を駆使して、カッコよく使いこなして欲しい!
レギオンメイトの「蒼嵐水将 スターレス」は、リアガードでは縦列にいるユニットと位置を交換する能力も備わっているので、攻撃回数を稼ぐことにも一役買ってくれる。パワーも十分で、頼れる相棒になりそうだ。
どちらも「蒼嵐」の名前を持っているユニットなので、既存のカードと組み合わせられるのもポイント。
レギオンの力で、ファイトに新たな風を巻き起こせ!!


Today’s cards are the Legion that “Aqua Force” users have been waiting for! Lets introduce you to the super powerful Units Souryuu Leon used in the animated series, showing their full power!!
“Blue Storm Wave Dragon, Tetra-burst Dragon”, during the fourth attack onward of your turn, it can Legion Attack with 28000 Power and 2 Criticals! It makes full use of “Aqua Force” and its ability to exchange positions, and its really cool to master!
Its Legion Mate, “Blue Storm Marine General, Starrus” has the ability to exchange positions with other Units in the same Column as it while its in the Rearguard, which helps you rack up the number of attacks you need. Its power is pretty reasonable and its likely to become a Unit you can rely on.
And since both are “Blue Storm” Units, they can be combined with existing support cards.
Using the power of Legion, create a new wind to fight with!
