Rachel / Rae

Placeholder Image

Character Name: Rachel / Rae
Age: 25
Sex: Female
Affiliation: Electronica Leader
In the beginnings of her involvement with music, she was a founding member of a group known as Nausicaa, but eventually split to form the group now known as Electronica. The drive to provide music to people is still evident, though the drive for her to make a profit is also obvious. She sees this need for funding the organization as a necessity, a means to the end unspecified, which she has only shared with those that are exceedingly high in status in the gang.

Rae is very involved with Electronica. She often participates in jacks and enjoys it, even when the Clefs get involved. In a way, it’s seen as a challenge, though there is always a fear that someone will get caught. While she watches the beatings that come from being initiated in to the gang, she doesn’t participate in the First Aid aspect of the beat-ins. She performs the Tempo Control procedure as needed, this being the only ‘medical procedure’ that she’ll get involved with.

Her attitude can be best described as one full of ‘piss and vinegar’. She can get loud, irate, and angry, but still maintains an almost affectionate air around people that have proven their worth. Finding the DJ will gain ultimate respect from her, and a seat of power with the reformation. Her clothing outside of the Elects is rather bland and boring, usually consisting of a long sleeved shirt to hide her identifying tattoos, pants or capri shorts (depending on if she is working at the time or not), and average accessories, sometimes a simple bracelet or gold hoop earrings. Her job outside of the Elecs is that of an architect, designing buildings and interior spaces, which means she often has to dress professionally.

Her love of music runs deep. She plays a bass guitar often, and loves blaring her music whenever possible, preferring the heavier stuff to the lighter, classicals. If she is listening to classic music, it’s a sign of depression. Her amp, she often says, is her truest friend.

Character Name: Soren LeFaye
Age: 23
Sex: Male
Affiliation: Clef
Soren used to be involved in a gang called Nausicaa. He was somewhat of a badass. He helped with jacks, and was eager to fight. He, Ryan, and Rachel were always butting heads. Around the time Ryan and Rachel began fighting, jacks were starting to go sour and Soren pushed the use of guns. Of all the gang members, he was the only one who had willingly murdered others, most notably clefs. One fateful night, he was out too late and got into a gunfight with the wrong guy. And lost. After a long battle with his health, he lost his memory of the gang, but had a feeling of being betrayed. He became a clef and has since spilled blood of those he has deemed “less desirable.”

Errant / Grey

Placeholder Image

Character Name: Errant “Grey”
Age: 28
Sex: Male
Affiliation: Clef
Bio: Previously a lawyer, Grey became a Clef after an embarrassing family case. With his business-like personality and tendency to rise to the top, he eventually became the head of the district.

While most clefs know him by his birth name– Errant– few call him this out of respect. Of an impressive temperament, he never seems to succumb to shouting or anger, unlike his younger brother, Rye.

Ryan / Rye

Placeholder Image

Character Name: Ryan or Rye
Age: 26
Sex: Male
Affiliation: Nu Leader
Bio: Ryan was once the co-founder of a gang named Nausicaa, which helped musicians hear and love music. However, something happened that’s been kept under wraps between him and the Elec leader, allowing them to split and make rival gangs approximately five years a go. Since then, the pure intentions are still there but not as evident as the war between them and the search for The DJ.

Rye is rather laid back when it comes to leading, and considers all his Nus very close family. However, he’s very touchy on some subjects, such as his blood relatives and his past. It is rumored that his older brother is a Clef.

Rye has dirty blonde hair that’s short in front but goes down at an angle toward his shoulders in the back. He wears biking gloves, black or blue jeans and either a white t-shirt or a wifebeater with a black open jacket over it. He plans jacks, but rarely deals. Ryan mostly tries to gather information about where the DJ may be, what territory he may be able to gain from the Elecs easily, and watches over initiations as well as help preform Tempo Changes and first-aid.

He can tune guitars, but otherwise seems to only listen to music through noise-proof headphones at very low volume, and doesn’t seem to ever hum or sing along. While this seems peculiar, his love for music is still clearly visible by anyone he comes into contact with. His day job is a librarian at Musica Central.

Character SummaryKey FactsPose Suggestions

Character Summary
The story takes place on an arid planet with a fantastical middle-ages sort of vibe. Or an alternate future with co-existing sentient species. Sometimes it’s a grim dystopian atmosphere where body mods aren’t uncommon. The surroundings aren’t important. Here’s what is: Lori Lentil once pissed off the wrong guy. A warlock, witch, or dragon cursed the narcissistic trickster thief to abandon his humanity and slowly turn into a scaley beast. Rather than let the curse win, Lori substitutes his reptilian limbs with mechanical ones and covers up what he cannot replace. He puts off an identity crisis by responding with never-ending humor and sass. From the outside, he’s a hilarious character with never a dull moment. By constantly distracting himself, perhaps he will never have to think about his challenging future.

Key Facts
– Looks aged 20 – 28
– Has no hair; it’s all feathers. Most of it is white, but some red is acceptable; black tips can be added. Variable interpretations welcome
– “Hair” is generally mostly covered by a bandanna
– Goggles always over eyes
– Always wears bandanna or scarf around neck
– Primary color scheme is red and gold; secondary color scheme is black, brown and white. Feel free to redesign costume with differing colors, but red/gold is preferred
– Can make fire from his hands in small amounts (mostly for light)

Personality Traits
– Easily fixated on a goal (such as treasure hunting) and incredibly stubborn to achieve it, even if in life threatening danger
– Loves tricks and mind games, rather than actual fighting (He’d annoy you to death!)
– Short attention span; easily distracted, especially by shiny things
– Stereotypical sassy/snarky adventurer type
– While an aloof character, he is ashamed of his dragon limbs. This is what inspires his body mods and costume design

Pose Suggestions
– Plays on dragon lore (such as having a hoard)
– Anything trickster, treasure hunter, or thievery related
– Being caught red-handed, or running away after such
– Indiana Jones-inspired
– Anything inspired by “One Jump Ahead” from Aladdin

Character SummaryKey FactsPose Suggestions
Lycanthropes were real, and the French Foreign Legion attempted to breed human/lycan hybrids. It didn’t go as they planned, and the last living specimen was kidnapped and surgically altered to appear human. Q doesn’t know about his origins. He thinks he’s a human with a birth defect– a tail, which for the lycanthropes, houses major arteries and could not be removed. He grew up in military boarding schools, of which his father was the commanding officer.
After revealing he liked men, Q’s father scarred his face with a rapier. This prompted Q to run from his country to another with his at-the-time boyfriend. In the new country, they started a French mafia. It was then Q got his tattoos, things he now considers to be youthful mistakes.
Originally one of the top dogs in the mafia, he was later cast aside since a gay couple apparently isn’t very threatening. Feeling betrayed by his now-ex on top of being disowned by his father, Q threw himself deep into the closet, abandoning his life of organized crime and trying to make a new one as a hired gun. Burying himself in women and booze, things get complicated when his health begins to deteriorate. He fights fainting spells with cigarettes, but eventually his lycanthropic past catches up with him and he dies by 30.
– Aged 25 – 30
– Cigarette is optional
– Sunglasses optional, but preferred
– Green eyes, slight glow
– Hair is grey, not white
– Tail is black. Tail is optional, but preferred
– Around six feet tall
– Tanned/dark skin

– Went to military academies, posture would reflect this
– Not too emotive facially, except while intoxicated or in pain
– Womanizer
– General “disturbed” or “dark hero” stereotype.

– Anything involving guns or knives. A firearm is his primary weapon and the knife is his secondary. He’s proficient with both, but prefers guns.
– Any type of action pose or scene.
– Anything super emotional (and by that I mean all the negative emotions, such as lonely, depression, anger, etc.)
