The Race of Aleria is an Original Character Tournament currently starting its second round on the site deviantART. As its name kindly announces, the premise is that competitors are to race each other] to reach a teleporter to take them to the next phase of the race, all in the world of Aleria.

The point of this is to select one being who'll have the honor to slay the dictator dragons that had once ruled over their civilization (whom had been thought to be dead but turned out not to be) in return for money, fame and keeping the dragons' hides - which are also worth a lot of money in themselves.

This OCT provides examples of:

    open/close all folders 
    General tropes 
  • Aliens Speaking English: Considering that Aleria is an intergalactic civilization and the contestants come from all over the multiverse, this trope doesn't just exist in here. It's a must. It's even lampshaded in the occasional entry.

    Contestant Character tropes 

Arak

Arezo Civec

  • Clear My Name: She's blamed for a crime she didn't commit at her home planet and wants to be clear of those accusations.

Bouje

Chi Darkfire

Chigi Taj

Code

  • Adorkable: Because no matter who you are or what you believe in, her silly ways make others in the 'verse go "d'aww"

Echo & Ymp

Hawthorn

Hernando Gómez

  • Cluster F-Bomb: Not usually, but with situations where a simple 'damn it!' would suffice, he has a persistent habit of becoming... creative with his word choice and swears like a sailor.

Iris

Jason Mirolett/Jester

Kael (Kaelikr'deruien)

Kirk & Talkbot

Kysar

Leah

Mar-Lynn

  • MacGyvering: She can make gadgets out of bizarre tools, it seems.

Niobe Kavaar

Noel Alexander

Pants & Roach

Paper Cat

  • For the Lulz: He's a comedian. A bad one at that. But he does everything for his audience.
  • Verbal Tic: Adding ku at the end of the sentence.00000 Who has a verbal tic-ku? Are you talking about me-ku?

Quentin

Rehn

Scimitar

Simon

Sophia

  • Split Personality: Is it her? Is it a demon? Is it her mother? The world will never know.

Symphony

  • Aliens Speaking English: Averted. Symphony speaks "Fairy Cat", and while she has taken lessons to understand Alerian, she cannot speak it, and many Fairy Cats find it difficult to make the sounds required for it.
  • Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": Symphony's species has been dubbed "Fairy Cats" by the rest of the universe, yet they are neither fairies nor cats, and they do not really resemble either.

Syradeus Shalan

  • Applied Phlebotinum: His e.ghost forms are an example of advanced technology.
  • Gentle Giant: He's tall, intimidating and strong; but also soft-spoken, well-mannered, and nature-loving.

Tasman & Hitch

Timber & Grey

Tyger

Viktor & Kin

Xandra & Zeo

    Non Player Character tropes 

Vespera

  • The Stoic: Her expression never changes. Her tone never changes. She is like a piece of stone governing Aleria.

Nah'yair

Carlos

Riley

  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Riley may seem caustic, but really she just doesn't want to get too close to the contestants when any of them could die at any time.
