Earth's Kami Applications Oct 17, 2021 22:06:44 GMT -5

The Kami is the Guardian of Earth. They are a figure intended to oversee the mortals of the planet, and to protect it from undue harm. For the past several thousand years, the Timeless Lookout has remained ruined and abandoned, and no new guardians have been seen in eons...
...Until now, that is!
Applications for Kami are now OPEN with this thread! To become Kami, your character must fit the requirements listed further below, and you must post an application with the listed template to give us your case as to why your character would make a good Kami. Since Kami is a spiritually-based position, instead of voting in-character, a single Kami will be chosen from the listed apps by staff.
Applications for Kami will be open until October 24th. After then, apps will be closed and staff will take some time to look over the options and pick one in the next few days!
In addition, The Kami is also the creator of the Dragon Balls connected to the Eternal Dragon, Shenron... However, Shenron still needs his beauty sleep, and the Kami will need time to learn about their new responsibilities and powers. The mechanics for Dragon Balls do not exist yet. As such, while a Kami will be chosen soon, the Dragon Ball mechanics to go with them will come much later.
Characters looking to become Kami should exhibit the following qualities:
- A Guardian must be morally good and pure of heart, and they cannot be overly violent or merciless in nature. You cannot deceive your way into being Kami - Shenron will be able to tell if you're lying! Your character must truly be good and heroic at heart.
- Since the Kami will one day be the creator of the Dragon Balls and connected to Shenron himself, they must be adept with magic to pull this incredible feat off.
- The Kami is the Guardian of Earth. In turn, they must have an existing, strong connection to Earth and its people, and an unwavering willingness to protect Earth and its people no matter the cost.
- The purpose of a Kami is not just to fight evil, but to guide Earth and its people and well. Good leadership and wisdom are requirements to be able to nudge the planets' people in the right direction.
- Be active! We don’t expect anyone to post everyday, but given Kami is a major position, you need to be able to commit to the role, and the character assuming the role. Very new characters or characters who haven't been posted on much in recent times will be denied.
