This character sheet is for ''Literature/TheDescendants''. It's under construction, but trust us, if it's ever complete, it's going to be [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters HUGE]].
[[folder: The Descendants]]
'''Laurel Brant / Codex'''
The strategic planner of the group and provider of any occasional tech the group needs, either from her own creations or ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney courtesy of her rich father.
* HermeticMagic: Because she isn't a member of the WitchSpecies, she can only use the [[GreatBigBookOfEverything Book of Reason]] in this way.

* TheSmartGuy: Naturally, as being TheProfessor is her power.
* TeamMom: Certainly for the younger members, but often for Ian and Alexis as well.

A former teacher at the SuperHeroSchool run by the BigBad, she Academy with the ability to exude a substance called dark heat, which can allow her to fly, blast it offensively, and turn invisible.
* TheAtoner: For ever having been part of the Academy.
* DarkIsEdgy: Visually at least, but it behaves more like PlayingWithFire
* ElementalBaggage: Where Her "black heat" particles come from isn't adequately explained.

* SideKick: Self appointed to The Whitecoat
'''Cynthia [=McAllister=] / Facsimile'''
A self proclaimed 'consummate shapeshifter' (check out all the [[ShapeShifting ShapeshiftingTropes]]) whose opinionated, impatient nature is the catalyst for a number of the group's adventures.

'''Juniper Taylor / Zero'''

'''Kareem Utt / Ephemeral'''

'''Lisa Ortega / Occult'''
* TheChosenOne: The Book of Reason has picked her and Laurel.
