feel free to copy and do this for your characters! you can tag others, too. i wasn't tagged by anyone though.

the boys is inspiring me to write and draw Cori more again. she suits this sort of superhero genre so well: the kind that flips the narrative a bit and makes supers the bad guys. i'm love her.

i already know that Fang works for Cori (in a particular AU). but i'm thinking that maybe Rowan also does. Fang is very much the muscle when it comes to security, but Rowan could offer cyber security.

however, she doesn't work for Cori at first. Rowan knows her gf is working for some big-wig security company and decides to test just how good they are. in doing so, she...... i don't want to say "hacks".. but she manages to get through the network. she's shut down pretty quickly because Cori isn't a hack at her job either. 

but Rowan tries again and leaves her resume on Cori's desktop lmao. it'd piss Cori off but I think Dracko or Flynn could convince her to give Rowan a shot. and here we are.

You said that maybe this is where it ends.
Take a bow
for the bad decisions that we made.

EYE COLOR.    red
SKIN TONE.    pale, almost sickly looking
BODY TYPE.    athletic, lean
VOICE.    i had a voice claim video saved, but it's been deleted so now i forget who she sounds like;; her tone is generally quiet serious, though. controlled and even. but the annoying rich girl voice is there and comes out from time to time. she has a lovely singing voice, though too shy to share it to anyone except the shower head.
POSTURE.   proper 
SCARS.    n/a
TATTOOS.  absolutely not!!

𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐝 !

DRIVER’S LICENSE.   valid and renewed as needed.
CRIMINAL RECORD.   absolutely not!!
VICES.    pride & vanity.

𝐬𝐞𝐱 & 𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 !
SEXUAL ORIENTATION.   tragically straight.
PREFERRED EMOTIONAL ROLE.    submissive |  dominant  | switch
PREFERRED SEXUAL ROLE.    submissive  | dominant |  switch

RELATIONSHIP TENDENCIES.  she's never one to make the first move as she's quite guarded. generally uptight and standoffish against potential romance, but defrosts overtime as she's woo'd/her trust is earned.

𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐨𝐮𝐬 !
CHARACTER’S THEME SONG.  natural by imagine dragons.

HOBBIES TO PASS TIME.   reading, cars, and guns.
PHOBIAS.    heights!! 
SELF CONFIDENCE LEVEL.   hard to gauge from the outside as she seems quite sure of herself.  but she's probably at a solid 2/10 due to the expecations she places upon herself.
VULNERABILITIES.   her albinism and boyish figure--she tries to hide both under makeup and preppy clothes (preppy as in prep, like collared shirts and properly fitted/belted jeans--not skirts and pink). 

i am self conscious about Cori because I've had her for a long time and she started out as a Total Mary Sue--and do not defend that, please!!!!!!--but I've developed her beyond that so I'm mostly satisfied. except now more and more characters in media keep showing up that are like her in so many ways and i just feel unoriginal even though she's my favorite lol. 

rave asked:

8 for your top three faves

8. If your OC had to take the S.A.T. tomorrow with one night to prep, how would they do?  both emotionally and academically.

- Favorite number one is Cori! She's always been a proper student and worker bee. And she's an adult with a family now, so if she suddenly had to take the SAT with such little notice, she'd be blindsided and nervous. With time to properly prepare, the SAT was a breeze for her, but now? She's not the type who does nothing, so she would spend the entire night preparing. 

- Klaus is next--he's nearly a millenium in age. He's older than the SAT, and I think he'd be a bit cocky. What could they possibly test him on that he doesn't know? So he won't worry about it. But then when he takes it, he'll realize he's not as versed in things like math as he probably should be, lmao. A blow to his ego. 

- Flynn! She's quite the opposite to Cori in prep and opposite to Klaus in results. She never properly graduated high school so the SAT wasn't something she ever studied for, but she's academically minded in her personal time. She's particularly interested in math and physics. And, despite being a burn out, she's surprisingly logically minded. So she wouldn't prep. She would show up, barely on time and a little nervous. But then she'd do fine--not excellent--but still better than I think Klaus and Cori.

have a Greatest Showman AU in mind where Cori is Zac Efron's character. Jackal would fit Jackman's part well. 

I associately arguably some of my most badass characters with cute animals. Like Ryan's motif is rabbits. Mira's is cats. Sloane and deer fit together. Klaus and hummingbirds. These four are killers with little, if any, good to them.

Cori is the outliar here--I always associate her with a lioness--and she's lawful good.

2: Which OC spends the most time on their appearance?

4: physically strongest/most fit?

5: What scars/birthmarks do your OC(s) have? (Added, what are they most bothered by out of em?)

9: Who is the most adverse to being physically touched?

14: Tallest OC?

15: Smallest OC?

16: Which OC has a physical weakness/handicap?

19: Does you OC(s) have any physical ticks/tells?


Hey, thanks!! 

2: Which OC spends the most time on their appearance?

Probably Cori or Mira. Both wear heavy make-up and make a point to dress well. Mira also takes time on making her hair look good. One of Cori's main motivations to work out is vanity.

4: physically strongest/most fit?

Strongest is Nouchee due to being a vampire who's very old. But there are a lot of contenders for most fit: Fang, Cori, Sloane, and--if I include my friend's--Dracko are all gym bunnies. 

5: What scars/birthmarks do your OC(s) have? (Added, what are they most bothered by out of em?)

Good question!! Mira lost an eye. It's not something I think she'll ever get over. Cori has one from Dracko when one of their fights got too intense. Most of my OCs don't have any particularly meaningful or emotionally charged scars, though. The fighters tends to have a few scars just from the lifestyle. 

9: Who is the most adverse to being physically touched?

Naya. She's an extremely guarded person, especially against men. It takes her a long time to be used to someone--and even then, she doesn't really want them touching her. 

14: Tallest OC?

Tallest is Sloane! She emobodies the phrase "tall, dark, & handsome". She is at 6'2"? I think. 

15: Smallest OC?

I forget the exact heights for most of my OCs. But that's probably Vivian or Nouchee. 

16: Which OC has a physical weakness/handicap?

Cori's albino so her sight is slowly getting worse. She's also sensitive to the sunlight so she tends to dress conservatively to combat that. 

Mira is missing an eye and deals with everything that comes with that. 

19: Does you OC(s) have any physical ticks/tells?

Klaus is generally moving around somehow, but grows still when he's anxious. Cori rubs at her neck when she feels awkward. Umm, I'm not sure what else off the top of my head. I should develop these furhter, haha.

reblog with your daemon!

kidd -

dæmons in His Dark Materials are the external physical manifestation of a person's 'inner-self' that takes the form of an animal.

so what's your daemon

nexus -

Cori's daemon would be a lion--I picture a lioness for her, but daemons are generally the opposite sex of their human. So a male lion is cool, too, I suppose.

Klaus I see with a hummingbird!! I don't know why, but it's the clearest thing to me.

Fang is a weretiger, so that's that on that. 

Rowan hasn't been introduced to the blog yet, but she is Fang's GF. I think hers would be a fox--probably a Cape fox specifically because I see her being from South Africa. 

Cori absolutely is & and she is also the icon for this blog atm.

She got tomboy-ish hobbies, but has a queen bee's attitude so it makes for an interesting mix. Very American in the sense she's into guns and cars and country music, lol. She is The gunslinger of my characters (for now--she's also albino and that takes its toll on her eyesight). She's also lawful good.

But she's also FBI and works to regulate a class of people who can't help the powers they have. A sort of well-meaning antagonist against mutants or superhumans or gifted or whatever they're called nowadays.
