Anti-Hero Nigel/Niko the Quiet One, the Shadow Bard, the Crow at the Crossroads: a shadow demon with Magic Music (violine and cello) Mind Control; he was abused by his father and neglected by his mother as a human - as a demon he can go unnoticed at will. Randall the Laughing One, the Shadow Dancer, the Crow in the Woods: a shadow demon with Magic Dance mind control; his human life is a mystery but he is poisonous to traitors. Complete Monster The Wicked One, the Fire Drummer, the Snake in the Well: a fire demon with Magic Music (drums) mind control; his human life is also a mystery but he can sense when he's being lied to. The Dragon The Fierce One, the River Piper, the Duchess of Crabs: a water demon with Magic Music (flute) mind control; she was drowned by her greedy husband and became a demon by making a deal with a demon in The Underworld - as a demon she has the ability to smell greed in humans. The Masked One, the Thunder Shaper, the Baron of Scorpions: a thunder demon who crafts masks that allow wearers to assume diverse forms; he was imprisoned and tortured for years during the grand war - as a demon he can endure massive amounts of pain. Demons are defined by their abilities and their personalities are direct results of their experiences. There is only one important human in the series so far: Bishop Lawrence Mallard, the director of the inquisition and author of 'Hammer of the Demons', which is an essential tool for those who wish to rid the world of demons and sorcery. He hates sorcerers because one failed to save his mother from a terrible disease; he hates demons because the Vile One (the Fire Drummer's sire) killed his father. Rumor has it he will be sainted after his (inevitably young) death.

A while ago, I came up with a team of heroes who defend the town of Kingsport, Massachusetts. They call themselves the Red Knights, and they are among or descended from the survivors of the terrible attack on the town by the Dark Stone Cutters in Volume III. 1. Akihiko Himura
Description: The leader of the Red Knights, he was born during the reconstruction of Kingsport after the War. He has black hair and hazel eyes. He received the vision from the angel Raguel when he was 17, and met the other future Red Knights at the meeting place on top of the hill overlooking Kingsport.
Weapon of choice: Two-handed sword
Mount: Either a horse or a red dragon 2. Aislin Moore (née Maher)
Description: She’s Jayden’s wife, and used to be a stage actress. She’s often described as the most beautiful woman in town, with curly light orange-brown shoulder-length hair, silver eyes, and a silky smooth Irish accent. Thanks to her shapeshifting, she looks 24 forever. Her name means "dream" in Gaelic, which is appropriate because she is as beautiful as a dream. And thanks to her shapeshifting powers, she can change as quickly as one too.
Weapon of choice: She usually fights via her shapeshifting, though she carries some throwing darts around just to be safe.
Mount: Self-powered flight via shapeshifting 3. Anzhelika Maksimov
Description: A Russian woman of 27, and also the only member of the Red Knights who was not born in Kingsport. Like Akihiko, she received the vision from Raguel during her younger years. Her father was a conservationist who went to America to participate in overseeing captive breeding programs. Unfortunately, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time; he was among the Kingsport townspeople who were killed by the Dark Stone Cutters. Raguel inspired her to become a warrior to preserve his memory. She has long blonde hair and a light hazel right eye and blue left eye. Her armor is based on the leopard.
Weapon of choice: Glaive
Mount: Horse (Black Holsteiner) 4. Jayden Moore
Race: Human (though technically he’s an outsider now)
Description: He’s Aislin’s husband. He used to be a tour bus driver for Kingsport, and met Aislin after one of the plays she performed in. Thanks to his becoming an outsider, he looks 25 forever. His eyes glow blue. He used to have dark brown hair, but he shaved it as part of his becoming a Monk. He wears a sleeveless exercise shirt and a pair of exercise shorts. Since Monks usually don’t wear armor, nobody will see it coming.
Weapons of choice: Kama
Mount: Horse (Black Friesian) 5. Allen Harris
Description: He’s about 19 years old. His parents were among the survivors Demetrios and company saved during the Dark Stone Cutters’ attacks on Kingsport, as well as members of the volunteers during the demonic attack on Ahrinor Island. He has blue-green eyes and black hair that he wears in a swept back style, similar to Vergil in Devil May Cry 3. His specialty is fire magic, he carries a crossbow as a backup weapon, and he has the rock hyrax/mastodon/mammoth familiar (I still haven't decided which one yet), which also serves as his mount. 6. Felicia Mason
Description: She’s of English descent. Her hair has often been described as being the color of coffee, and she has emerald green eyes. She looks 32. She used to be a junior high school music teacher and would even play during the Renaissance Fairs.
Weapon of choice: Dagger and violin
Mount: Horse (Black Thoroughbred) 7. Cameron White
Class: Pale Master
Description: He dabbled in the gothic crowd in high school, though he finished with it by the time he graduated. He still looked into it in his spare time. Despite his robust 37-year-old appearance, he has white hair and his narrow eyes (which are blue-grey) give him a mysterious look. Since he’s both a Pale Master and Lawful Neutral, he comes across as stern and aloof. His familiar, by contrast, is very humorous.
Weapon of choice: Scythe, the scarlet kingsnake/Titanoboa familiar
Mount: Skeletal Horse 8. Sabrina Zhang
Class: Divine Champion
Description: She was fascinated with the Moon throughout her life, and upon becoming a ghost, was chosen as the champion of a moon goddess. She looks 23 and has blue-violet eyes. Her previously black hair has become silver in color, like the Moon.
Weapons of choice: She wears black and silver chain mail, has an arming sword and shield engraved with a symbol of the Moon
Mount: Pegasus 9. Hannah Wright
Description: She always liked magic, and hoped to become a professional stage magician. She looks 17 years old and is a Dark-Skinned Redhead. Considering the career she wanted, she has a habit of speaking a bit theatrically. Her specialty is arcane magic (kind of like what the Mages in World of Warcraft or the Wizards in Diablo III can do), and she has the tiger shrike/Phorusrhacos familiar. She also uses a sword like this one.
Mount: Red Unicorn 10. Carter Phillips
Class: Bronze Dragonsoul Heir
Description: When he was killed by the Dark Stone Cutters' curse, he feared that he was going to hell, but a bronze dragon, living in a secret cave near the sea and was also killed by the curse, offered to merge their souls together to save each other. He looks 27, he has black hair and his previously brown eyes are now bronze in color. He also has dragon wings that are nearly as tall as he is.
Mount: Self-powered flight There is also an unofficial 11th member: Michelangelo “Mikey” Gagliardi
Description: A 10-year-old boy who lost his family and became a ghost after the Dark Stone Cutters destroyed Kingsport with their curse. He has blue-grey eyes and reddish-brown hair. His familiar found him and took pity on him, and led him to Felicia, who adopted him as her own. He's unofficial because the other members consider him too young to join, but considering what happened to him, he steadfastly refuses to leave his new mother's side.
Weapon of choice: Lightning magic, a wand, and the tegu/Tyrannosaurus rex familiar, who also serves as his mount

Manic Pixie GamineHere it is, from my Cyberpunk novel "DUSK.exe"- Helga(Escaped Test Subject in a classified research facility): MacGuffin Girl, Cloudcuckoolander, Fiery Redhead, No Social Skills, Mysterious Waif, The Pollyanna, Gadgeteer Genius, The Technopath, The Playful Hacker, Walking Techfix, Ditzy Genius, Constantly Curious, Plucky Girl, Wide-Eyed Idealist, Significantly Green-eyedRedhead, Hot-Blooded, Badass Damsel. So stubborn and determined that she's the Leader of the Five-Man Band. Created by a Mega Corp. ruling a Police State (four industrial countries combined), and it attempts on claiming her back for their original purposes many times in the story. (She is the vessel to the start of an Assimilation Plot that will lead to The Singularity because of her exceptional connection and empathy to the Cyberspace's Database of life, the universe, and everything.;) Rey(Her sociopathic kidnapper/keeper, who promoted himself as her bodyguard. Resourceful, great at repairs. Helga's Vitriolic Best Bud.): Action Hero, Badass, Foil, Freudian Excuse, Deadpan Snarker, Sociopathic Hero, The Lancer, Socially-Awkward Hero, The Stoic AND Stoic Woobie, Dark and Troubled Past, Satisfied Street Rat, Badass Biker, Unwilling Roboticisation, The Engineer, Shock and Awe, Implaceable Man, The Spock, The nfettered, Anti-Hero (Type 3 to 4), Good Is Not Nice. Definitely the cynical, loner type, in contrast with our Leader: The Lancer. Blade( A deceitful tag-along who's got the street smarts, and Rey reluctantly let him go with them to help them out in the maze-like, extremely complex and scary mega city with his knowledge and connections.): Everyone Calls Him Barkeep, Red Baron, Knife Nut, White Hair Black Heart, The Trickster, Guile Hero, Fragile Speedster, Stepford/Perpetual Smiler, Cunning Like a Fox, Street Samurai, Straw Nihilist, Bounty Hunter, The Sociopath, Jade-Colored Glasses, Manipulative Bastard, Loveable Traitor, and The Smart Guy. Plus Ju Lia, who has a Heel-Face Turn and joined the three of them. The Big Girl for being a deadly Blood Knight and fights with strong gun-fu. A Vaporizer who uses More Dakka to beat out Mooks. Uses brute force more than necessary. She's the youngest, only 16 years old. Used to be a Corporate Samurai in one of the big corporations that wants to abduct Helga. Said Mega Corp. is an evil version of Apple Inc. Ju Lia is also a genetically-engineered Tyke-Bomb. And finally, Gerald, the poor Action Survivor, the Salaryman who got dragged in with the screwed-up four. The Only Sane Man and The Chick. He was fired from the evil corp and had his knowledge about the government-controlling corp's password-protected areas memory-deleted, but the Chekhov's Gun metal plate in his head prevented his memories from being deleted. A Straight Man, The Woobie, Butt Monkey, The Chew Toy, Unfazed Everyman, and Weirdness Magnet. Soon, he'll be a Badass Normal fro real hard Character Development. The others: Lars-Morally ambiguous captain of a troop in a big city, one of the masterminds in the Military organizations interested in Helga. Also Rey's estranged old man. Edward Allen-One of the witnesses to nearly everything that's going on. A Conspiracy Theorist, and Properly Paranoid. A private 1st class soldier under Lars's leadership. He realizes way too many things, and ends up raving mad by the end of the story. The only one who will not be affected by Helga's sacrifice to Retcon herself and anything that took place after her creation. Lenn-Virtual Ghost, her Cyborg physical body the router of a hacker organization to cyberspace. Also interested in Helga. She created a subconscious code in the roboticized (he was maimed and beaten nearly to death by his own biker gang in the dump that Lenn's followers had found him)Rey's mind to protect Helga from the shady organizations pursuing her at all costs, much against his will (though he finally accepts it in the end). She was a formerDragon Mook of the Mega Corp.. The World's Most Asskicking Hacker/Cracker is her In-Universe title. Marvin-One of the hackers in Lenn's organization. Sardonic and a snoobish Seen-It-All. Lenn's right-hand. Quentin-A n00b hacker, Allen's best friend and Marvin's colleague and often slave. He soon delves into madness after sleepless, obsessive nights of researching and obtaining illegal information about Helga and the conspiracies surrounding her. He betrays Lenn's organization and sides with the Mega Corp., supplying them information of Helga's whereabouts. In the end, he was brainwashed into becoming one of the soulless people of the Mega Corp.'s regime. Renee-An excellent hacker, not considered a member of Lenn's organization but often cordial with them. Partner of Jacob. Harvard scholar and graduate, but the pressure and repreessed feelings of rebellion against the Dystopian government's systems made her suffer a breakdown, leading her into becoming vicious and becoming an anarchist, willing to destroy everything concerning the government. She was entrusted by Helga's original and missing human creators a drive that is integral in unlocking her subconscious, but she herself does not know the drive's password. Jacob- Renee's hacker partner and fellow "vigilante" who commits crimes against the government to save the mind-controlled citizens that did not live in the squalor ghettos. Serious and earnest, opposite of Renee, but lacking intensity and dedication to his work.
Maybe I'm a hopeless dreamer, maybe I've got it wrong, but I'm going where the grass is green if you'd like to come along.
I need a drinkThe Good King Mistletoe: A boy who was born from the bloom of a Mistletoe and later becomes King after saving a kingdom from a dragon. The story surrounds his origins, his rise, fall and his lasting legacy. Tatterhat: A hunter who made a fox skin cloak to escape a debt and later found himself forever trapped in the form of a fox. Serves as Mistletoe's most trusted companion and later his advisor. The Witch in the Woods: A mysterious old crone who was responsible for the circumstances surrounding Mistletoe's birth. An opportunistic schemer who ultimately has a good heart. The Girl in the Blue Cloak and The Boy with the Scarred Heart: Mistletoe's parents. His father was transformed into a bear by The Witch in the Woods at the request of the girl's father. His mother saved him from his fate by not shedding a tear for three years. This is still a working progress so theres more to come.
Theres sex and death and human grime in monochrome for one thin dime and at least the trains all run on time but they dont go anywhere.
Many FacesI felt like doing this for some reason. Bu Xamoda: A wealthy war veteran whose frustration with the lack of advancement in the Verandi Empire's stratified society led him to side with the rebellion against the monarchy. His experience and reputation as a pillar of society among the non-nobles led him to be appointed commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Verandi Forces, where as such he leads and coordinates the rebel fleets and armies of the interstellar empire. Queen Amelia II: The young and accidental queen of the Verandi Empire. Never really trained to rule, the inexperienced monarch deals not only with a country split by civil war, but backroom politics led by nobles who wish to make her a figurehead and rule by themselves. Increasingly attempting to run the war by herself. Shannon Katoran: A crafty and headstrong man from the first planet to rebel. His righteous convictions are matched only by his recklessness, which leads to several resounding and attention grabbing successes for the rebels but high casualties among his men.

The Forum GhostHere are the characters of my book, roughly in order of appearance. I only included the characters of the first book to avoid doing this 'til Christmas.

What should I put here?Praetor Zimmermann: The Religious Leader of Earth That just caught my eye on account of being at the end. While I'm sure it's a coincidence, that could lead to some Unfortunate Implications.
I write stuff sometimes. I also sometimes make youtube videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/majormarks
The Forum GhostEhhh... How exactly?
nobody knowsWell, a praetor is a political position, for one thing.
The Forum GhostOh, that. No, that actually ties into the 'verse. Politics and Religion are in many ways tied together. Also, the title "Praetor" has a bit different meaning in Ancient Rome and in the 2500's. I thought it was something about the name.
edited 13th Aug '13 4:00:36 PM by Xeroop
nobody knowsIt might. I was just pointing out the part that caught my attention.
The Forum GhostI think it is good that you did. Some of my stuff surely contains enough Unfortunate Implications as it is. It is a good thing that someone notices the ones that might fly past me.
nobody knowsWell, you're welcome, then. :) (The other thing that struck me as implicative is the idea that the world will eventually become a One World Order, spiritually AND politically. I assume that's a conscious choice you plan to address...?)
The Forum GhostYes it is. Though most of the power isn't held by the government rather than corporations.
Many Faces"I thought it was something about the name." I think it is. Because "Zimmerman" has been in the news for quite some time over here and a hot button issue on account of the George Zimmerman Trial - Trayvon Martin Shooting.

The Forum GhostAh, right. The Sanford Neighbourhood Watch thing. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Besides, the other "n" makes the name German.
What should I put here?Yeah, I was referring to the name. It's probably a non-issue, but I just felt the need to point it out. If its a work in progress now, he'll probably have been largely forgotten by the time it would be finished. And it's pretty obviously a german name even without the other N.

Wolf1066James Turner - likeable but a bit of a rogue, disregards some laws if they seem unimportant and briefly took up armed robbery as a means to get funds to get himself out of a nasty situation. Aubrey Williamson - rather bigoted with regard to race, sex, social status and the type of work you do. Views himself a paragon of virtue. Ian Wolff - down-to-earth, crude, opinionated but otherwise laissez-faire and tolerant. Teri Walker - independent, self-made, accepts she has limitations and, if necessary learns to overcome or work around them.
