    Name: Nayantara (Nye-un-tar-ah)"Twinkling star in the eye" Chetty "Trader"
    Nickname: Naya or Tara
    Gender: Transgender Female
    Sexuality: Bisexual
    Age: 17

    Personality: Naya is a crude and sarcastic young lady, who has trouble expressing her feelings at times. She's the type of person to make ill fitting and appropriate jokes during sad times or serious times. She doesn't like to be perceived as weak and will put up a strong front unless around someone she truly trusts. She can be very selfish when it comes to getting what she wants or thinks she deserves and can be destructive to others and their lives as she will cross various moral lines to achieve what she desires. She does feel guilt for committing these acts but often justifies them as necessary actions in the quest to achieve the perfect lifestyle. She's the type of girl who thinks 'I'll do something nice for them later' before manipulating them, but she never seems to truly honor that afterthought. Although he actions may seem to point to her being a sociopath, she isn't as she craves friendship and will try desperately to maintain her relationships, but usually in the wrong ways.

    [​IMG]
    Bio:
    Naya was born to two strict and traditional Tamil Sri Lankan parents who prided in loving Naya conditionally. They would always warn her that if she ever screwed up they wouldn't even hesitate to kick her out or send her to Sri Lanka to get 'straightened out' by their even stricter relatives. So it was no surprise when they lost their shit when Naya came out to them as transgender. In the back of her mind, Naya knew that coming out to them wouldn't end well, but she thought that all that talk about conditional love was just talk and they would still lover her even if she didn't want to be a 'he' anymore. She was very wrong. Her mother screamed and burst into angry sobs when the words fell from her daughter (at that time son's) mouth and she started throwing dishes and cursing her own womb for producing such a 'horrible thing'. Naya knew at that point that it was time to run, but her dad had been so quiet, she thought that he was really considering it, so she braved the onslaught of dishes and reached out to grasp her fathers hand. Her father looked up with a dull glassy look in his eyes, and his face morphed into a visage of disgust and rage. He wrenched his hand away and left the room. Naya stood their in shock (her mother had stopped throwing dishes and was just praying to the gods for mercy). Then her father came back in holding a switch and Naya knew then that it was really time to go and she dashed out of the house thinking that her father just meant to kick her out, but after a glance over her shoulder she saw that he was in hot pursuit of her. Fortunately, their neighbors called the cops and Naya was sent to stay with a social worker for a short time.
    The next week, Naya went to court and her family disowned her and she became a foster child. Her parents swore up and down that they would never accept 'an abomination' back into their arms, but the judge sentences them to sixteen months of LGBTQ counseling sessions in hopes that they would change their views.
    They didn't.
    So Naya was sent to live with a family who always wanted a daughter. It was there that Naya was given the proper counseling and resources to begin her transition. Everything was going fine until the couple decided they wanted a son too, and they brought Logan Vernon home. Logan was a creep, but he acted sweet and kind when people were watching him, but really he was a terribly transphobic and a junkie. He bullied and harasses Naya constantly, until Naya framed him for drunk driving and reckless endangerment when she was sixteen and he was eighteen. From them on, life was nice again.

    Sells and makes fake IDs.
    Was harassed by her foster brother for being trans.
    Stole and crashed her foster mother's car, then switched places with her drunk foster brother and blamed it on him. Said foster brother was sent to a juvenile rehabilitation facility and charged with reckless endangerment since he was 18 and Nayantara was 16.

    FASHION:
    Original Stella
    Teenage Stella

    LOCATION:
    Sterling and Petra's Room



    As soon as Madame LeBeau started giving instructions, Stella started getting excited. She loved doing magic--well, she loved trying magic. She had never been very successful with magic that wasn't naturally hers. But still it would be fun to--"Don't let us do anything?" Stella gasped, irritation prickling at her skin. She hated being left out just because she was younger. She hated--Suddenly a large smile filled with glee appeared on her previously frowning face. In a few minutes she wouldn't be a little one, so she would get to do what everyone else was doing!

    Escaping from Cleo's gentle grasp, Stella disappeared into the crowd but not before yanking a book out of an unsuspecting student's hands. She figured she'd apologize later. Running to her room, Stella took a deep breath before transforming into teenage Stella. Crumbs went on guard for a second as he usually did when she transformed in front of him, but after catching her scent he settled back down to sleep. "No, no! Crumbs, I need you!" Stella complained, pulling the dog into her arms. Said canine seemed to sigh in exasperation but didn't struggle to get away. Stella strode out of her room with Crumbs under one arm and the stolen spell book under the other. She went to Sterling's room first because it was closer and she didn't want to get in trouble for trying to go to the boy's room again.

    Placing the book on the floor, Stella put Crumbs down and closed the door. Crumbs watched the rise and fall of Sterling's chest for awhile before deciding to jump onto the bed and go to sleep on her stomach. "Crumbs." Stella whined. "Stay awake, I need your emotional support!" But the dog was already conked out. Stella sighed and flipped through the spell book, trying to find a wake up spell or something like it. After awhile she found a 'burst of energy' spell and figured it was about the same. Grabbing Crumbs and tossing him on Petra's bed, Stella took another deep breath before reading the spell aloud;

    "Dormienti semper inquieti,
    Ruptis de industria facit mel silvestre!"

    Relationships With Family

    [Character Name]
    'Short quote about them'
    > More in depth information about opinions <




     

  10. Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, is a delightfully rugged area. 110.1 mi2 former home to the aforementioned president and now home to a host of creatures, some homeless people and a few wealthy families! Most notably; The Ellington family. A family consisting of Robert and Angelica Ellington, and a whole host of foster and adopted kids, as the parents are incapable of having biological children.

    The Ellington's have a tendency to adopt children from less than savory households or children who have been thrust into the cruel adoption system at an age where they are unlikely to be adopted or children forced into other negative situations. But they love these children all the same no matter their background, disabilities or what harrowing events they have suffered through.

    The Ellington's didn't always live in the park, but after bringing home their fourth child and after establishing their 'one pet per child' rule, they realized that they had to relocate to a larger more accommodating area, so they moved to Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

    [The Wolf + She has a certain allure. The kind that makes you want to watch from afar with great caution but at the same time you wish you could reach out. And that's your mistake. You must not touch the wolf, for she will bite. And if you are bitten, you will stay with her forever.]

    Name: Graceful Dancy

    Nickname(s): Grace to her 'pack members' and friends
    Alpha to her newer 'pack members'
    The Wolf to those who don't know her, her enemies, and others.

    Gender: Female
    Age: 25


    Personality:
    Socially Awkward and Shy
    Despite being the leader of quite a large group of 'wolves', Grace has always felt a sort of distance and a lack of connection to others and has a hard time expressing herself to non pack members. Her 'wolves' get her personality and she's used to hanging out with and talking to them, but when it comes to other people, she turns into a monosyllabic, grunting and looming shadow. The cause of this is her introverted personality and she does practice in front of a mirror when she has to leave her comfort zone and speak to non pack members, but she usually clams up when it's her turn to speak.
    Colorful and Humorous
    Grace swears like a sailor. She strings together various crude phrases and words and makes newer even nastier ones. She has a pretty morbid sense of humor but tries to real that and her cursing in when she's around kids. At which point she will attempt to substitute her curse words with lesser curse words or words that still convey the general feeling. (Ex: Instead of "Aw fuck!" she'll say "Aw shit" or "Aw forks!") She's also the type of person to hear about someone dying in an unfortunate or unusual fashion and make a pun.
    Strategic and Responsible
    Being the Alpha of her group forces Grace to be the most level headed one and she constantly tries to think of ways for her pack to operate without getting hurt or at least not getting damaged as badly as they could have. She puts the kids first and then works her way up to the older ones who can better take care of themselves, but even so she will still hover over all groups when they're hurt or upset.



    Residency: The Land
    Occupation:
    Grace runs a large thieves guild consisting of her pack members. The thievery ranges from pick pocketing to embezzlement. In order to properly disguise this organization, Grace also runs a home for lost souls called The Den which also consists of her pack members, even the ones who don't want a part in the real business.


    Relationships:
    Grace is on good terms with all of her pack, but there are some notable relationships;

    Moira Dancy
    17 Years Old - Omega - Grace's Youngest Sister
    Moira is a shut in who suffers from severe anxiety, which is why she's an Omega. She excels in anything that has to do with food and is The Den chef.


    Jess Tagget
    23 Years Old - Epsilon - Grace's first non blood related pack member
    Jess is the pack's best con woman and often acts as a second opinion for Grace. Usually if Grace is gone, Jess is acting Alpha.


    Toussaint Greer
    29 Years Old - Epsilon - Grace and Moira's cousin
    A passive guy, Toussaint prefers to work behind the scenes. In the past he performed several robberies but after dislocating his knee, he retired to a more relaxed lifestyle. He helps Grace find assignments as well as helps the Omegas find their true calling.


    Assata Greer
    14 Years Old - Pup - Grace and Moira's cousin, Toussaint's sister
    A rebellious and excitable young lady, Assata would have graduated to BETA a long time ago, but she tends to be insubordinate and keeps getting demoted for various infractions.





    THE PACK
    ALPHA
    There is only one Alpha, and that's Grace. She handles the income, gives out the assignments and calls the shots. However for large scale cons and robberies, she usually heads the excursion. She is also the one who determines who gets adopted by the pack.
    EPSILONS
    Usually adults, these are the ones who perform the larger scale thievery such as cons, and embezzlement.
    BETA
    These are the ones still learning to be better thieves, but still able to be on their own and perform robberies, and burglaries. They're usually teenagers.
    PUPS
    The children! They are either learning to pick pocket or are pick pocketing and waiting to graduate to BETA status. Some of them of course lean more towards OMEGA status and are exempt from learning the trade.
    OMEGAS
    These are the ones who don't want to be thieves and are trying to find their own paths in life.

    The schools that I listed are actual schools, but they're mainly there for geographical reasons and for a visual aid if you need it. You don't have to look up their site and get accurate teacher names or anything. xD

    Be nice to your role playing peers! Be respectful and if you have a problem, bring it to me or Icystorm in a PRIVATE MESSAGE.

    Be active! I understand writer's block, but please try to post at least once a week, if not more! Furthermore, please post over 3 lines and NO ONE- LINERS, pretty please.

    Also please be active in the OOC too! Public relations is like a bag! If you don't speak to the bag, no one will ask you if you're crazy!

    This is a public role play, not a libertine, so please fade to black if any of the romance gets past making out.


    At the moment we have 11 characters, so character acceptance is going to be kind of low depending on how it goes in the IC.

    When you post in the IC, please include your character's name, location and tag who they're interacting with.

    If I'm forgetting something please tell me in the OOC!


    DISCLAIMER: This role play came into existence after the GM of The Forbes Family role play disappeared. However other than the basic premise and the character sheet, this role play is completely of my and @Icystorm 's own creation.

      The Ellington family inhabit this large home, however despite being rich the home is not as expansive as could be and so some of the kids have to room together.

From there the bus takes the kids to Demores Elementary School in a total of 20 minutes, and then to Belfield High School in 45 minutes. And the prospect of school brings a host of pleasant and unpleasant feelings. Who's being bullied? Who's doing the bullying? Is there anyone struggling with tests and class? Coupled with the grand issue of having an array of very different and sometimes clashing children living together, the Ellington family has a LOT on their plate.

      Hello my lovelies! (Does that sound creepy?)

      We will be starting on Saturday, so get excited and get those relationships updated to include everyone in the family!

      For new people coming in, I'd like for you guys to have your character sheet completed by Monday.

      Felix


      I have lost interest in rping Felix so he's gone. I might add the character that I had scrapped before, but probably not. Anywhoo, that's all I wanted to say!

      Oh wait wait wait--
      We will be starting the rp momentarily, but everyone needs to have their relationships for the family finished, or you won't be able to post.
      02/02/16
      Zuri and Max have gone away!

    Personality
    Ashley is a very passive and pensive girl who likes to wander through life as opposed to rushing. She takes things slow not because she needs it that way but because she loves to take in her surroundings. She can stare at a tree for hours never getting bored because her mind is constant filling with questions. However this type of disposition and mentally often gets her into unpleasant and dangerous situations. She likes to daydream and sometimes she'll zone out in class or stop to marvel at something when she's crossing the street. When reprimanded for putting herself in danger or not paying attention in class, Ashley will become despondent and stubborn and will resent you for yelling or snapping at her. Angelica though rarely in a foul mood, gets upset when people try to baby her or are overprotective of her just because she's deaf.

    Biography
    Ashley doesn't remember anything before the streets. As far as she knows, she was always homeless, but she supposed that she lived in a house at some point, because she remembers her mom always telling her that one day things were going to be good again. So she supposed she was talking about that. Honestly, maybe it was because she was so young, but Ashley never really cared about where she lived as long as she was with her mom and brothers. She was never hungry and sure sometimes people were mean to them, but her mom and brothers always kept her entertained and it was rare for her to not have a smile on her face even when they had to move from place to place.

    However one day it seemed like luck was finally shining on them, because they found a pretty field to stay in and they pitched tents and even had take out once. Her mom who was usually frowning, looked relaxed and would tell Ashley and her brothers fairy tales. But one day, their mother left to get supplies and never came back. Then Ashley's brothers left to find her and they never came back, but Ashley always believed that one day they would.

    For a few weeks, Ashley lived on her own in the field eating the left over rations. But when the food ran out, Ashley was forced to venture out of her sanctuary, and that's when everything went wrong. It turns out that that field was actually the land that belonged to an elderly couple and when they found out about Ashley living there, they called the police and Ashley was taken into police custody, but soon turned over to the state and put in an orphanage. However nobody wanted to adopt Ashley because as it turns out, she was deaf and not many people were willing to take on the task of accommodating her.

    Nobody except for the Ellingtons, that is. The Ellington welcomed Ashley with open arms and even though Ashley still believed her mother and brothers would come back, she accepted the Ellington as her temporary family. With the Ellington, Ashley better developed her sign language and was even allowed to get a pet. It was with the Ellington that she learned how to garden and was encouraged to explore surroundings.

    (What really happened to Ashley's family: Her mother was kicked out of her apartment because a neighbor found out she was shooting up. CPS came to take the kids away, but she ran away with them. The entire time that they were homeless, she was struggling with a drug addiction and regretting not letting her kids be taken by CPS. However she couldn't go back because she would be arrested for child endangerment as well as for the drugs. She knew that the field was the elderly couples property and left them there in hopes of them being adopted. She herself went looking for a fix and died of an overdose a few months later. Ashley's brothers, Nick and Sam went looking for her and were taken into police custody. They were adopted soon after by a couple across the country.)




    Relationships With Family

    Angelica
    "She's a wonderful mother, and I'll miss her when my mom comes back to get me."
    >Ashley sees Angelica like she hung the moon, as she was the one to teach her ASL and help her better communicate to the world. She gets annoyed with Angelica's over protectiveness but appreciates the sentiment.<


    Robert
    "I don't really know what a dad is supposed to be like, but he's the best."
    > Unlike Angelica, Robert is not as overprotective and let's her deal with her own issues as best as she can. He's her candy eating go to guy.

    Scarlet
    "I wish I could hear her sing."
    > Ashley admires Scarlet's confidence, but steers clear when she's being a brat. <

    Felix
    "He's my museum buddy"
    > They don't have much in common save for their love of museums and they've made it their mission to visit a different museum every weekend. <

    Dante
    "She's awesome and I wish I could be like her."
    > Ashley sees Dante like some sort of rock star, she used to try and emulate her but stopped after getting into too much trouble and hating it. She still likes to imagine that she was like Dante though. She knows her iguana creeps her out, so she tries to keep him away from her, but the lizard knows what he likes.<

    Max
    *Giggles* "He's cute."
    > Ashley has a huge crush on Max, so she doesn't really see past his looks and sometimes spies on him.<

    Jason
    "My adventure buddy!"
    > She loves 'talking' with Jason, mainly because sometimes he inadvertently signs curse words, and that's pretty much how she learns her curse words, cause she looks up the motions afterwards, if she doesn't understand. She likes to explore with him and find lizards outside.<

    Jack
    "He's like Hermione Granger!"
    > She loves seeing his magic tricks and can imagine him as a magician on Broadway. She's secretly trying to learn how to do magic and is eager to show him if she ever perfects a trick.<

    October
    "She always makes me feel awesome."
    > Daisy is the ultimate ego boost for Ashley when she feels down, because no matter what Daisy will still follow her around and copy her, which she loves. She sometimes gardens with Daisy and takes her on her 'adventures', although she won't climb or go too far when she's with the younger girl.<

    Randy
    "I don't understand why other people avoid him."
    >Ashley adores Randy and considers him one of her go to adventure guys. Sometimes when she finds secret places outside, she shares their location with him, because she knows he likes to be alone sometimes.<

    Zuri
    "She's my science buddy"
    >Ashley goes to Zuri for science help if she needs it. Zuri also taught her how to swim.<

    Phillip
    "I wish he would play with Daisy and I."
    >Ashley has tried to be friends with Phillip but he avoids her and that makes her sad, but she has long since chosen to give him his space and do her own thing.<

    Personality
    Angelica is a bold woman who only minces her words when it comes to children. When dealing with adults, she will tell them exactly what she thinks of them if the situation calls for it. She absolutely abhors bigots and ignorant people and if you cross her or her family you will be on her shit list forever. When she's with her children, Angelica is patient, understanding and caring and does her best to help them overcome their obstacles, but sometimes she can get a bit carried away and fight for them instead of beside them. She's the type of mom to intercept a bully's parents, without letting her kid try and solve the problem first. She can be a bit impulsive sometimes which ultimately gets her into a lot of trouble, but she does her best to fix things.

    When it comes to her children, Angelica can be a big goof and likes to see her kids laugh. However she also believes in unorthodox punishments when her kids do bad things or get into fights with each other, so it's not uncommon for her to make her kids put on a one act play or a mini concert after they've had a big fight.

    Biography
    Angelica was born to two Ivy League graduates who only wanted the best for her. So naturally they force fed her STEM education ideals and sent her to ritzy boarding schools filled with kids that she could never get along with. It was their intent for Angelica to graduate with a medical degree so that she could complete their successful lineage goals of having a lawyer, a state senator and a surgeon all in the same family at the same time, and Angelica did end up granting their wish for about three years until the day of the INCIDENT. On the day of the INCIDENT, a social worker contacted Angelica's father and told him that a woman named, Bailey Walter's had died in a terrible accident and that he was given custody of their daughter. Naturally that was a huge shock to Angelica's mother because she had always assumed her husband was undeniably loyal to her. So Tabitha Walters came to live Angelica's family and the two sisters hit it off immediately. Unfortunately the same could not be said about Angelica's mother because seeing Tabitha's face every day was just a reminder that her husband was a cheating bastard. But the two never got divorced because they were pretty well known in the neighborhood and they couldn't let another 'fiasco' like divorce, tarnish their reputations. Angelica's mother started drinking heavily and when she got drunk enough she would chase Tabitha through the house, throwing plates and just anything she could get her hands on. She would curse at the girl and call her a 'disgusting little bastard'. And Angelica's father let this happen because he knew that his wife had the capability to destroy him publicly and he wasn't willing to risk that. While this was happening, Angelica wasn't at home very much. Technically she still lived there but with her demanding job, she often stayed at a friends house that was closer to her job, but when she heard about what was happening at home she started putting plans that she hadn't intended to implement until at least two years later, into action. With a surgeon's salary, Angelica was able to get custody of her sister under the guise of wanting to allow her parents a smoother transition into early retirement. Angelica then purchased an two bedroom loft apartment where the two lived together for a few years until Angelica met Robert Ellington at her sister's friends apartment 'christening'. They hit it off immediately and soon they were engaged. It was their plan to move to North Dakota, and with great reluctance, Angela left her sister who was practically shoving her out of the nest due to graduating college and getting some big lawyer gig and 'needing her space'. In North Dakota, Angelica and Robert adopted their first child, Scarlet and Angelica was suddenly inspired to change career paths and so she became a writer of children's and YA books. After their fourth child, the house started getting cramped, so the Ellington's moved to Theodore National Park, where they purchased a sizable log cabin that would be a better environment for the growing number of adopted and foster kids.



    Relationships With Family
    Robert
    "My debonair, darling sexy pants!"
    > Angelica has never connected with someone like she did with Robert. She considers him her one true love and cherishes him daily. <


    Scarlet
    "My little doe eyed bambi-wambi duchess!"
    > Scarlet was the first kid, so Angelica spoiled her a little...Okay a lot. She blames herself for her daughter's brattiness, and tries to make her tough it out sometimes, but ultimately fails. Scarlet is Angelica's karaoke go to partner. <


    Felix
    "My little devil turned musical angel baby!"
    > In all honesty, when Felix first came into their lives, Angelica started second guessing herself. The first few years with Felix was rough, because he always found away to insult the family and was making icy waves at the retirement community. But after his change, Angelica was finally able to see the sweet boy who was underneath all the rough edges. <


    Ashley
    "My future explorer honey bunny!"
    > Angelica was the one to teach Ashley ASL and is in charge of teaching the other children if they don't already know it. She is highly protective of Ashley because she knows that some kids will take advantage of her disability and mess with her. However sometimes the two butt heads because Ashley prefers to solve problems on her own and Angelica just wants to protect her 24/7" <


    Dante
    "My red coat renegade sweetie-kins!"
    > Although Angelica is more of a debater and a yeller than a fighter, she sees a lot of her fire in Dante. When Dante first came to them, Angelica used to get worried sick when the girl kept running away and in a fit of mother's hysteria she actually considered putting a GPS tracker in her phone, but didn't when she realized that Dante could hold her own. Even so, Angelica makes it her mission to slather her daughter in hugs and kisses every chance she gets and sometimes tries to get her to wear an entire armory of safety equipment. <


    Max
    "My modern age blacksmith-boo!"
    > Angelica is still trying to find common ground with Max and she's still trying to dissuade him from playing with fire when not under proper supervision, but she thinks she's making headway. <


    Jason
    "My shopping buddy bear!"
    > Angelica knows that something isn't quite 'right' with Jason, but she loves him all the same. She's been trying to find a child psychologist for him, but hasn't actually brought the matter up to her son for fear of him rejecting or lashing out at her and ending their good relationship. Angelica does most of her shopping with Jason. <


    Jack
    "My abracadabra darling smooshie pup!"
    > She loves seeing his magic tricks and supports him in his quest to master the magical arts, but like Jason, she believes that he needs a child psychologist. <


    October
    "My sweet baking honeysuckle cheese cake!"
    > If she could, Angelica would take October everywhere with her. However she knows that if she constantly keeps her by her side, October will never achieve the little independence that she's allotted. Angelica does however bake with October, even though she has no cooking or baking talents and pretty much just helps with lifting things...And okay, she's basically just an assistant. <


    Randy
    "My skittish Randy-bear!"
    >Angelica wishes that she could have a better relationship with Randy but the kid seems to hate her either way. She tries to find common ground with him and even offered to take him shopping for a pet, but he keeps saying he doesn't want anything. The only time things are relatively nice with them is when she makes him a homemade hot chocolate and leaves it in the kitchen for him, but even then his pleasantness is indirect.<


    Zuri
    "My mermaid baby ball of sunshine!"
    >Honestly Angelica fears for Zuri a bit because of how happy and a pleasant she is and often wonders if it would be beneficial to sign the girl up for Krav Maga classes. But aside from that Angelica loves hanging out with Zuri and getting language lessons from her. She also loves to watch her swim.<


    Phillip
    "My little brainiac bubby-boo!"
    >Angelica is painfully aware of Philip's past, so she doesn't force her presence on him, but she can see that he's slowly opening up and that makes her happy. She likes buying him puzzles and wishes she could see him solve them. <
