ARTICLE THE SECOND: CHARACTERS:
Name: Rachel Enigma (Formerly Cunarocle)
Age: 15 (Birthday May 18th)
Parent/Powers: Rachel's father was the third Enigma Dragon, Matrix. As a result, she has the ability to switch between dragon and human form at will. She can breathe navy-black flames and has the ability to channel fire into her serrated teeth during combat. She can also sense the emotions of those around her. She has serrated talons that can be sheathed like a cat’s. She can fly at a good speed using her wings.
Personality: Rachel is not a social person. She rarely approaches others unless she needs to. She is not good at “Small Talk” and even worse at knowing what is going on around her. However, despite this, she really has her friend’s best interests at heart. She tries to help people when they are spiraling into despair and depression, and their sadness affects her. It is even more so since the defeat of the priests. However, she has become somewhat secretive. It is possibly because of her mother’s death, or the defeat of her best friend’s murderer. It might even be her learning her true name. What the problem is, she won’t say.
Bio: Rachel was born in Italy to her father, Matrix, and her mother, Laura. When she was three, they moved to Florida where she grew up. Later, when she turned five and the priests were searching to kill half-bloods and their families, Rachel’s mother and father agreed to separate the family to avoid suspicion. Matrix returned to the Enigma World, an alternate dimension the Enigma Dragons hail from, and Laura left Rachel alone in an alley. Learning to use her powers, Rachel wandered the world, eventually meeting Luke when she was seven. Luke was a half- dragon with black scales and golden eyes. He was her best friend, and they traveled together. Some might have even said that they had a small romance, but it was short-lived. Later, Rachel and Luke met Isaac, a handsome boy who turned out to be part dragon as well. As a human with a beautiful face, and a white dragon with golden horns and spines, he seemed to be very kindhearted at first. He was soon a member of the group, and the three dragons worked together to survive. However, little did they know that Isaac had sold his soul to gain power, and he plotted to kill his two companions. Later, he tried to shoot Rachel with a cursed revolver, but Luke shielded her and sacrificed himself by taking the bullet that was meant for her. Rachel got away with her friend in tow, but was horrified to see him die, gasping, in her arms. She later got revenge by destroying Isaac, but Luke’s death will always haunt her, just like her mother’s death beforehand. Soon after, in a hibernation induced by her severe battle wounds, she decoded her name, and it was revealed to be Rachel.
Appearance: In human form, Rachel has copper-brown hair and stands about five feet five inches. Her eyes are large and dark brown in color. She is thin and is very flexible with lean muscles. Her entire body is covered in spiraling navy markings that give off a faint glow. When in dragon form, she appears as a 3D drawing formed by spirals and lines that glows in a blue-black flame. Her eyes become sharp and slitted and their color changes from brown to a very pale shade of green. The shape of her dragon form is like a wyvern, consisting of a long neck, a mane, curved horns, spikes running down the back, large wings with claws and opposable thumbs at the tips. Her tail ends with a furry tassel. She is roughly the size of a loaded semi -truck.
Name: Fiera Almafuego
Mythical Parent/Abilities: Fiera’s father was the El Chupacabra, a legendary cryptid of Mexico. This has given her finely tuned senses. She can easily hear and smell a threat. The sharp teeth that line her upper jaw are like butcher knives or saw blades, and each one can inject a lethal neurotoxin that can have the same effect as anesthesia. The toxin is bright blue in color. She is also capable of quick bursts of speed; she can run about 20 miles per. Hour. Her size is also like a weapon. She is about the size of a small bear, with sharp spines running down her back. Unlike most Chupacabras, who have the builds of wolves, Fiera has a build similar to an ape; therefore, she is capable of bipedal movement on occasion. She has opposable thumbs, but she does not have feet like a human, which further prohibits upright movement. Her claws are sharp, but nothing compared to her vice-like bite. She has incredible strength, enough to lift heavy loads and even throw them a short distance. Her eyes are sensitive to bright light, but she can easily see in the dark.
Personality: Fiera is not a friendly person to meet. She is aggressive and considers those who trespass in her territory a threat or challenge. Her thoughts are mostly dominated by primal urges, such as the need to eat and avoid predators. She mostly prefers goat blood as a meal, but will quickly eat something else if blood isn’t available. She is smarter than full-blooded Chupacabras, but can only speak a very small assortment of crude Spanish. She therefore dislikes talking. She prefers to use her body language to communicate.
Bio: When Fiera was three years old, her father was savagely killed by priests. Her mother was also killed four years later. This left her very bitter towards humans, and therefore she took every opportunity to attack people who entered the wilderness. She also on rare occasion would massacre the livestock of farmers, mainly goats. She has no qualms on killing innocent hikers looking to photograph the exotic species in the jungle. She has never been caught up to this point.
Appearance: Fiera is very much like a Chupacabra in appearance, and the size of a small grizzly. Her entire body, except her face, is covered with long, dark brown fur. The skin on her face is a brownish-black, and looks almost like that of a chimpanzee or ape. Her nose is like a human’s in shape, unlike the usual wet dog nose common among chupacabras. Long black spikes that are almost two inches in length run down her spine, gradually getting smaller until they fade at her almost non-existent tail. She has very muscular arms, and a build similar to a gorilla or chimp. She has very animalistic eyes; they are a black, with deep brown irises. A ring of gold surrounds her slightly pointed pupils. Her upper jaw is filled with long, serrated fangs that are like knives. These constantly protrude from her mouth, hiding the tinier teeth in her lower jaw. Her ears are much like a bat’s, and are incredibly big. They are not covered with fine black hair like most chupacabras. She wears a small pair of brown shorts made from leather, and a similar top that covers her chest ends at the bottom of her ribcage. This is the only thing that allows people to determine her gender, other than her gruff, female voice.
Name: Birgit Falk
Mythical Parent and Abilities: Birgit is the daughter of the valkyrie Gunnr. She has wings, and can fly, although normally she disguises these wings as something or other. She can communicate with horses, and can call upon them at any time. Birgit also has healing abilities, and can heal major injuries to some extent. Her steed is a large wolf, golden fur, similar to her mother's steed. She can communicate telepathically with this wolf, whose name is Djupr, Old Norse for deep.
Personality: Birgit is a natural-born leader. When angry, she leans towards passive anger, preferring sarcasm and overexaggerated false kindness over more aggressive anger. Birgit tends to point out the flaws in people, and often reminds them of these flaws, urging people to improve. Birgit also tends to challenge peoples' authority, treating them with disrespect, even if they are equals. She is stubborn, and although allowing some arguments to be forgotten, will often treat the person disrespectfully. However, if you know Birgit well, she can drop this behavior, and become more amiable and friendly, though this is quite rare.
Bio: Birgit is the daughter of the valkyrie Gunnr, and a mortal man named Ethan Falk. Her father, after finding out the truth about Gunnr, drowned himself. Gunnr, horrified that the revelation had driven Ethan Falk to do such a thing, angrily abandoned Birgit in the streets of New York, New York, leaving her to fend for herself. Birgit soon became a bit infamous in the city, as she was known to to attack civilians walking through the streets, stealing money, food, and other belongings. Once she was 14, Birgit left New York, and started traveling through the world, looking for anybody who knew or knew of her mother.
Appearance: Birgit stands at about 5'9". She has silky, brown hair. Her hair is quite straight, and goes down a little past her shoulders. Birgit has bright blue eyes. One of her most noticeable features are her wings. Large, feathery wings, like all valkyries have. As Birgit isn't quite old enough, for a valkyrie, her wings are light gray. When in public, Birgit disguises them, or, on several occasions, hides them with limited magic. Birgit normally wears ragged clothes, most with two holes in the back for her wings. She generally wears jeans, a plain black t-shirt, and a denim jacket, which are currently her clothes until she can afford something else.
Name: Jasper K. Lee
Mythical Parent and Abilities: Jasper is the descendant of peasants from Spain and France. These peasants, in the hope of overthrowing the rulers of their countries, injected themselves with hellhound blood. Jasper's father was descended from this family, and so Jasper has hellhound blood in his system. Also, in Half-Blooded, it was revealed that Jasper has the blood of Cerberus.
Jasper has the ability to manipulate fire to his will. Strong emotions, such as anger, will make sparks or flames burst around him, making his hellhound descent a bit more obvious. Jasper also had the ability to weaken enemies with direct eyesight, although the effects are not noticeable unless Jasper is experiencing strong emotions. Due to being related to Cerberus, Jasper is given the ability to control dead bodies as if they were puppets. He is also favored by Cerberus, and has therefore visited the Underworld not once, but as of the end of Half-Blooded, twice.
Personality: Jasper is generally quite happy, but argumentative. He is stubborn, and refuses to end arguments until he has won. He has a short temper, and has attacked random people because of this. Jasper is quite paranoid, easily scared. He loathes creepypastas because of this, and has on several occasions avoided sleeping due to fear. Despite his unreasonable fears, Jasper is quiet smart, enjoying writing and science, though due to his laziness he does not work as well as he could. He is overprotective of those who he cares about, and seeks revenge on those who hurt his close friends and family. Jasper is shy, and doesn't have that many friends in places where he is new, the Legion included. However, Jasper, once friends with somebody, is quite easy to talk to, although he does sometimes offend people unintentionally.
Bio: Jasper, as said before, was a descendant of a family of peasants from Spain and France, who injected themselves with hellhound blood. Because of this lineage, Jasper's father was killed by Priest agents, who were pretending to be close friends. Jasper was only five, and before the Priests could test his blood, his mother grabbed an unused pistol from the cabinet, and shot the Priests. Of the three Priests, only one survived, a bloody hole in his shoulder. However, this gave Jasper, his mother, and his twin sister (who doesn't have any hellhound blood, mind you), Orchid, enough time to escape, and move into an apartment in Minneapolis. This new-found peace came to an end nine years later, when Priests attacked Jasper's apartment, killing his mother. Jasper was saved by the Legion, and him and his sister were brought to Peter's farm in North Dakota, where he learned about the Legion.
Appearance: Jasper has black hair, not that curly but not that straight. It sticks up, as Jasper doesn't fix his hair after waking up, leaving it messy. His eyes are usually dark brown, however sometimes they glow red. Jasper is 5'4'', and only a little over 80 pounds, due to his reluctance to eat. He find it hard to smile when not happy, and generally has a neutral expression. Jasper generally wears a plain t-shirt and jeans, sometimes wearing a jacket, but not much else. Jasper is somewhat pale, partly due to visiting the Underworld for some time, and also due to not going out in the sun much.
He likes 80% dark chocolate, as should all people.
Mythical Parent/Abilities: Kamaitachi http://www.blisteredthumbs.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/kamaitachi.jpg
“The Kamaitachi are thought of as wind demons, most popularly portrayed as weasels with sickles sticking out of the tips of their paws that can be retracted, though according to legend they moved so fast that no one could see them when they were in motion. Most Kamaitachi work in groups of three. The first would knock the human down, the second would cut the human with its sickle and the third would apply fast-healing medicine to the wound, resulting in a very painful, but completely bloodless wound for the invading human.”
Her abilities include being very fast and strong despite her tiny frame. She also has advanced skills when it comes to fighting with sharp weapons including her claws, teeth, knives and swords.
Personality: Ever since the end of the Priests Willow's personality changed. She used to be a lot more childish, acting as if fighting and getting in trouble was just a game. But more recently Willow has been acting a lot more serious, almost humorless. She also got a lot more territorial. Not just with objects but with people and food. She became very protective of people she cares about. While on the outside she seems like a tough nut to crack, on the inside she is just hurt and in need of some normality.
Bio: Willow had a Kamaitachi father and a human mother. After she was born Willow's mother left her to the care of her father. Despite their differences Willow's father took care of her along with her Kamaitachi step mother and Kamaitachi half brother. Once the Priests started to show up Willow had to leave her family behind to keep them all safe. During the final battle between the Priests and Half-Bloods Willow couldn't help thinking about going home to them and having them be proud of her, that was until she received the news that they had all been assassinated by the Priests. This news devastated Willow and tore her apart. Now Willow can't help but protect the ones she loves.
Appearance: Willow only has a few features that sets her apart from humans. She has light skin and pinkish eyes that makes it look like they are itchy. Her ears are slightly longer then a normal human and have soft tuffs of fur growing on them. However her furry ears are hard to see because they blend in so well with her long white hair. Her hair used to be much shorter but began to grow out because it hasn't been cut in a while. But she plans on cutting it off soon.
For clothing Willow only wears shorts and a T-shirt. But this clothing has gotten her in trouble before.
Other: Willow often carries with her a small bottle of the mentioned fast-healing medicine. Although useful for healing allies it leaves behind a sharp stinging sensation. However at the moment Willow is short on this medicine after using it on Yurio. (priest)
Name: Kelson Clark
Mythical Parent/Abilities: Kelson is the son of the ledgendary Kraken, arguably the largest and most feared creature in the ocean. They are enormous, octopus like creatures with tentacles large enough to rip apart a full sized sea vessle. The mighty creature, the scourge of the sea, is Kelson's direct father. However, the powers he recieved are reduced in a way.
In his human form, Kelson is no more than a less than average boy. He can't run very fast and isn't very strong, and he doesn't have smarts to make up for it. But when he is pushed to the edge, whether it be with extreme anger and hatred, or a near death experience, his true colors show. Kelson will transform into a monster, the most ferocious beast in the sea, a Kraken.
Of course his time and power as a Kraken are limited. He doesn't grow large enough to crush a sea vessle, but more around 20 feet in height. His tentacles have the strength to rip someone open, and/or decapitate them.
Personality: Kelson isn't the most outgoing person, and is actually a bit shy. He is self-conscious and takes alot of what people say very seriously. He doesn't have the best self-esteem due to how unextraordinary he is, and views himself as below average. Although, if one takes the time to get to know him, he isn't a bad person. He doesn't try very hard to make friends but he puts in a great effort to keep them by being his normal, trustworthy self. He isn't one to break a promise.
Bio: Once there was a small fishing town on the edge of an island. It was far out near Scandinavia and almost completely unheard of. It was a miniscule little town with a small population. Everyone knew each other, and everyone seemed to get along just fine. On a little house that rested upon a hill, lived a young couple. Together they shared their lives and the small house. The couple had many problems though, especially the woman's views upon the man, and she was soon to betray him.
One eventful night, the woman commited the crime of adultry. The man was heartbroken that his love abandonned him the way that she did, but his pain was nothing compared to what he felt when her punishment was choosen. She was to be sacrificed to the mighty Kraken that lived beneath the sea next to them. They took the woman out on a fishing trip one day, and went deeper into the sea then they had ever gone. Then when they were far out enough, they dumped her into the water and quickly made a get away.
The woman was later discovered on a beach, near death. She was taken in by locals and given medical aid. It was then that it was discovered she was pregnant, pregnant with the child that was later to be named Kelson. She moved to America to have the child, a country she had always yearned to go to, and part of the reason she left her first relationship.
Appearence: Kelson is a tall, lanky sort of kid. He doesn't have much muscle, but does stand over most people at his height of six feet. He doesn't appear very intimidating, and infact, one that may be underestimated from time to time because of his small build. His eyes are a reddish brown color that is similare to the shell color of a crab deep in the sea. His eyes appeare to reflect not what is infront of him, but waves sloshing around against a snady beach if one stares deeply into them. His hair is whitish blonde and cut short. It is usually not visible however, because a bright red, baseball cap is almost always covering his head.
Kelson commonly wheres a plain T-shirt, and khaki pants. His closet is literally stocked with almost nothing but them, which is why he so often dresses in them. When he is permitted to, he totes a baseball bat around with him that bares his name printed in bright red letters. He recieved it from his middle school baseball team, and it has large sentimental value to him, which is why he enjoys taking it with him places to display it. Little did he know that he would soon need to use it as a weapon.
Mythical Parents/Abilities: ALIENS!!! Yes, Yurio is decendant from a human, and an alien. His actual name is D009, but I will discuss why he is called Yurio later.
Being part alien, Yurio's genes work in harmony to give him some of the best, and worst qualities of both species. Some notible qualities include his fangs that protrude when he opens his mouth all the way, acid pouch in the back of his throat that allows him to spit metal melting acid, and above average athleticism. He can run at the speed of an agile cat, usually getting on all fours to do it. He has the strength of a body builder, lifting 400 pound weights daily. Also, being decendant from an alien, he understands any kind of technology presented to him quite easily. However, one of his most usefull abilities is his amazing balance. His inner ear far surpasses that of any human, allowing him to do nausiating acrobatic manuvers without being dizzy at all. Nothing makes him dizzy, and he pretty much always lands on his feet.
Personality: Yurio is somewhat cold in his personality. He doesn't care much about others, and prefers to keep to himself and put together different contraptions or devices. However, if his dignity is challenged, he will spring to the test. If one actually gets him to talk, they'll find he is alot smarter than his monsterous appearence suggests. However, he has a distinct personality change at night time. As soon as the moon rises, he seems to become aggressive and preditory like.
Bio: You know those amature videos that depict space shuttles? Those are the aliens Yurio is descendant from. They evolved in a planet not much unlike our own, and aren't TOO extremely different from us. Ther are quite reptilian in appearance.
One day, they were to run an experiment involving interspecial gene transfersion. (I am not going to get any more explicit than that.) They grew a combination of alien and human genes in a test tube, naming the experiment, D009. They were initially supposed to observe the amazing middleman of space, but the mission was aborted after Yurio was born. The ejected him and left the area, but Yurio didn't die. He was found near the edge of a fishing village in... can you guess? The Himalayas. A small family took the baby in and named him Yurio.
Soon, the baby grew and refused most things a normal human baby would. He didn't eat baby food, nore drink milk like he should have. Instead, he could be found at times, sneaking around eating raw fish. Soon, as he grew older, the family couldn't handle the abnormal anomalies their baby was undergoing, so they reluctantly set him free at the edge of the village. They still keep a close eye on him.
* * * * *
After a conflict with a group of goblins, Yurio's personality, appearence, and entire life was changed drastically. They beat him near the point of death, but before he could die, he incased himself in a cocoon. Within this cocoon several changes took place to make the alien what he is now. When he emerged he was an entirely different person.
Appearence: Yurio wears a thin, white jumpsuit that covers, leaving only his hands, feet, and head exposed. His skin is an aquamarine color with spikes protruding from his shoulders and a spine of them going down his back.His head is elongated to have an appearence similare to an alien from a movie, and he has six, bright purple eyes that have no pupils.
His posture is hunched forward in a preditory sort of stance, giving him the appearence that he is going to pounce at any moment. His legs look compact, as if they're able to launch him forward in a hunter's leap. He has two long fangs that protrude from his mouth and are big enough to even make his speech sound different. In his entire look he appears to be some sort of alien monster that would leap on you and tear out your guts.
With Yurio I only changed Personality, Bio, and Appearence. I'm about to work on the other one.
