character factoids! section
um, thought i might as well do some OC profile thingies. it'll be subject to change as new stories pop up/old stories progress.
NICOLE "SPARK" ACKERLY: a 15-year-old mutant bird hybrid, she escaped Itex at the age of 5 and was adopted by the Ackerly family (who are actually her true family) at the age of 6. dirty-blond hair, golden-brown eyes, 15-foot wingspan of a changeable hawk-eagle (if you don't know what that is, google it), and multiple scars that i won't list here now. her abilities include incredible memory, super-zoom eyesight (a.k.a. "hawk eyes"), gills, and ability to control lightning/electricity. it turns out she was created for the Factory, an itex branch located in chicago, as the leader of a team that was going to steal information from other branches of itex; however, she ran away before she and her group were fully grown. (the team--the "anti-flock"--was very pissed about it.) she's recently picked up the nasty habit of getting kidnapped on a regular basis.
DYLAN "SY" WESTERFIELD: a 16-year-old mutant fish hybrid, he rescued spark from the salt lake lab. silvery-blue hair, dark blue eyes, silver-blue fish tail and chestplate when he's in the water. his abilities include speed (in both running and swimming), lock-picking, code-cracking, and healing. the first successful male fish/human hybrid and the son of the leading doctor in the fish/human area, he's called "project poseidon" by the scientists and "sy" by his friends. his healing ability uses water, and whenever he activates it an alter personality, "dylan," is triggered, and sometimes takes over. when this happens, sy's eyes turn red; the only known cure is to expose him to copious amounts of cark.
CONSTANTINE ("CON"): a 17-year-old mutant bird hybrid, he is the leader of the anti-flock. jet-black hair, steely gray eyes, 17-foot wingspan with gray-black wings. his abilities include torturing people with his mind. he took over as leader when spark escaped and is a trained fighter originally from russia. when they were kids, he and spark were best friends, and though he once wanted to capture/kill spark for various reasons, the two have come to a rocky brother/sister type relationship (much to the dismay of cark fans). NOTE: originally created by blackberry01.
BLAZE: a 16-year-old mutant bird hybrid who is second-in-command of the anti-flock. spiky black hair with a red streak, blue eyes, 16-foot wingspan with orangish wings that fade to red at the tips. her abilities include controlling/creating flames. she is very tempermental and tough and her eyes turn silver when she's angry. she also hates spark with a fiery burning passion. and. . .well, she used to hate iggy. . . NOTE: originally created by 11Twilightcrazy.
SWIFT: a 14-year-old mutant bird hybrid, he is actually 3.6892 percent bird as opposed to the "regular" two percent (resulting in talons for feet). blond hair, gray eyes, 14-foot wingspan with brown wings. he has no definitive abilites yet, but he is very calculating, cynical, kinda paranoid, has quick reactions and is not very talkative. he is also good with electronics. NOTE: originally created by FireHawk43.
SHADOW: an 8-and-a-half-year-old mutant bird hybrid who is youngest among the anti-flock. blond hair, brown eyes, 10-foot wingspan with wings that are gray with white spots. his abilities include blurring over memories in others' heads. he is very agile and likes to curse but is very charming around adults. NOTE: originally created by amongthewinged.
AVIA "AVI" FOSTER: a 13-year-old mutant bird hybrid who was kidnapped by itex at the age of ten. black hair that is red at the tips, blue eyes, 13-foot wingspan with wings that are gray with black tips. her abilities include taking memories from others' minds and nudging emotions in certain directions. she first escaped at the age of twelve but was captured again almost right away, and was unwillingly following con and helping itex. NOTE: originally created by GrimmGurl4Lyf3.
LEANDER: a 17-year-old human (apparently) who is one of the very last remnants of the itex corporation. white hair, pearly eyes, and the odd ability of being able to "see" things that are happening very far away. it's been established that he's a psycho creepy stalker, and i think i speak for everyone when i say i'm glad he's dead.
flying raccoon status! section
some people have plot bunnies. i have flying raccoons of inspiration.
why flying raccoons? long story. originated back in elementary school, when a friend and i made up a story to explain the hole in the ceiling of the stairwell. plus, it just sounds cool.
but anyway, i have many multi-colored flying raccoons. only four are of concern to you people reading this:
curse of the werewolf: lost. he was very flighty and vague to begin with, and that came back and bit me in the ass.
when sparks fly: after a heart-wrenching good-bye scene, i released this particular raccoon (i called 'im general mcsquizzy) into the wild.
when they chase us: lieutenant fuzzytail, after a long and tumultuous career, has retired and gone to live with his brother, general mcsquizzy.
when evil lingers: um
