  1. Alright, so I really don't know how to preface this, so I'm just going to hop right in here...
    I'm pretty flexible on things, but I definitely suck on coming up with plots. Instead, I'll just list the premade characters I've got, and we can figure something out from there, yeah? Yeah, sounds good to me too. Let's get this show on the road, I suppose...

    Oh, and before I forget... The bios I have here are just condensed versions. I have a lot more information written out about each character, and I can fill you in more if you're curious. I'll also post up full bios if we decide to start a thread.
    Also, many of my characters actually know each other, and they will likely appear as side characters throughout the thread, especially Aiden, Ryder, Kieran, and Mac. Violet and Ethan grew up together and kinda/sorta dated for a bit. Camryn and Dallas were in a long-term relationship, but they're kind of iffy on each other now...

    Violet Williams (open)

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: Vivy to her friends, and Ethan calls her Red occasionally
    Age: 24
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Straight
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Very part-time bartender
    Marital Status: Single
    Birthday: November 8
    Ethnicity: English and Welsh
    Religious Views: Indifferent
    Political Views: Complicated, so we're not getting into it...
    Languages: English
    Education Level: Got through grade 10, and slowly working on the rest... When she's motivated...
    Theme Song: 'Beaten In Lips' by Beartooth

    Personality
    Even if you've only first met her, it is hard to say that Violet Williams is anything short of a total sweetheart. She is very much a dreamer, and tends to wear her heart on her sleeve more often than is good for her. Its clear that she's been burned more than once before, especially in her seeming inability to take compliments with anything other than a red face, stammering, and an attempt to hide from whoever gave it. That being said, she doesn't seem to have let that jade her opinion of anything other than herself, and tries to keep an optimistic view of things. It doesn't always work, but she tries. For the most part, she really is a people-pleaser, and willing to go to almost any lengths to keep those around her happy. If curiosity killed the cat, then she's been dead a billion times over, and will die another million before the week is up...

    Appearance
    Violet has a very distinctive appearance, mainly due to how she dyes her hair; keeping one side its natural black, while the other side is dyed a vibrant red or orange. Which parts are dyed depend on her mood when she decides that it needs to be done. Her makeup, something she is rarely seen without and never bare-face out of the house, is usually rather dramatic, consisting mainly of blacks and bold reds. She also tends to wear a lot of knee-high boots, short shorts, and leggings, though her style of clothing couldn't exactly be considered 'girly' by most. There's a decided hard edge to her aesthetic, something that seemed to have come from spending so much time in California, surrounded by the DIY, punk, and hardcore scenes, though her own personal look is a little darker than that.

    Height | Weight: 5ft 9 | 140lbs
    Build: Overall thin, with just a little extra weight around the middle
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Amber | Naturally black, partially dyed red
    Piercings: Multiple in each ear
    Tattoos: A few, though they're all easily hidden by a long-sleeve shirt.
    Scars: Nothing really major or out of the ordinary


    Analu 'Camryn' Kanoa (open)

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: Cam, and goes by Zero online
    Age: 26
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Pansexual with a heavy preference toward male-identified individuals
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Starving (sometimes literally) artist
    Marital Status: Single, and doesn't see the point in committed relationships at this point in his life
    Birthday: January 2
    Ethnicity: Pacific Islander and a hodge-podge of Caucasian
    Religious Views: More spiritual than religious
    Political Views: Extreme and fluctuating
    Languages: English, and a casual knowledge of Hawaiian
    Education Level: High school drop-out
    Theme Song: 'joyriding' by frnkiero andthe cellabration and 'Can You Feel My Heart?' by Bring Me the Horizon

    Personality
    Camryn is quite the character, to put it simply. Often labelled quiet by those who don't know him, and outrageously flamboyant by those who do, the truth of the matter is somewhere in between, and that holds for every aspect of his life. The side of himself that he shows is quite simply what he is comfortable with at that given moment, often at one extreme or another, where he is really somewhere in the middle. Feminine and masculine, hard and soft, kind and cold. The only constants in his life are how he treats those he is closest to, revealing himself to be a rather kind-hearted, gentle individual, though he has a tendency to be rather blunt when he sees an issue. Beyond that, he tends to live a rather hedonistic lifestyle, often indulging both himself, and his friends in the finer things in life, which makes it very clear that he very much lacks any sort of reservations...

    Appearance
    The first word to pop into most people's heads the first time they see Camryn would likely be something along the lines of feminine, elf-like, or just downright dramatic and odd. He is an absolute maverick with makeup, and knows how to play up certain features while masking others, making himself appear more feminine or masculine depending on his mood. One thing he cannot hide, however, is a rather delicate bone structure - something that only seems to add to the effect on his 'girly' days (as he often calls them). Regardless of whether he's trying to look more like a female or male, it is rare to see him without some sort of makeup and his hair done, usually teased out and messy. His hair seems to be the thing that changes almost as often as his clothing, as it grows quickly enough that he can cut it into some very unique styles, but be back to his usual thick mane in a mere month or two. As far as clothing goes, his is always dramatic, and typically lacking in colour, as he swears by black and greys. Jackets, scarves, and leggings of varying styles seem to be his favourite things to wear, and he is never far from a pair of sunglasses.

    Height | Weight: 5ft 8 | 120lbs
    Build: Thin and VERY feminine
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Black, often with streaks of varying colours | Light grey
    Piercings: Ears
    Tattoos: Half-sleeve on his lower right arm with a Disney princess theme
    Scars: Some across his thighs, but nothing you'd notice when he's clothed.


    Aiden McKinnon (open)

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: His parents both still call him 'Addy' from time to time
    Age: 25
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Innocently bisexual (as in he has zero experience with males, and limited experience with females)
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Special effects artist
    Marital Status: Single
    Birthday: November 15
    Ethnicity: All he knows is there's Irish and Italian in there somewhere
    Religious Views: Agnostic, raised Catholic
    Political Views: Votes NDP during every election, but otherwise disinterested
    Languages: English, Québécois French, and tiny bits of a few other languages
    Education Level: Ryerson University graduate
    Theme Song: Sinematic by Motionless in White

    Personality
    Especially when you first meet him - and for a little while after - Aiden comes across as nothing less than a gentle soul, shy, quiet, and awkward at the best of times, and downright catatonic at the worst. He is more likely to run from a situation - especially if there's any sort of confrontation involved - than attempt to face it, unless he has one of his 'safe' people nearby to essentially (and at times, literally) hold his hand through the experience. Despite being rather skittish, he is quite the character once you break down that wall of trepidation, always quick with a smile and laugh. It seems as though many of the people he associates with are rather high-energy, whereas he is far more low-key and laid back. He is quite the intelligent person, but never seems to let that show, and definitely refuses to hold it over the heads of others, just like the fact that he comes from quite a wealthy family. He is also rather naive, especially about the way people who lack excessive amounts of money live, but is curious enough to attempt to make up for that, at the very least. It is mainly because of this that he will maintain that animals make far more sense than humans do.

    Appearance
    Thanks in part to his timid nature, Aiden is nowhere near an intimidating person, and actually seems to take up far less space than he really does. He has a tendency to slouch, which only seems to add to the effect. As far as clothing goes, he dresses incredibly casually, usually sporting a hoodie or jacket, band or horror T-shirt, and jeans that're more often ripped at the knees than not. People always seem to be of the opinion that he has an honest, almost boyish face - whatever that means, he's never been sure... Despite having an overall well-kept, though a little more toward the 'punk rock', aesthetic, he has a bad habit of forgetting to wash his hair for a few days at a time, and gets a little lazy about shaving sometimes.
    Height | Weight: 5ft 10 | 150lbs
    Build: Compact, but with a little bit of extra weight to his frame
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Hazel-brown | Dark brown
    Piercings: Lip and ears, and he'll occasionally re-pierce his nose
    Tattoos: Numerous
    Scars: Surgery scar on his left foot from where he broke it, jumping out a second story window


    Ryder Laurent (open)

    [​IMG]
    Age: 25
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Heteroflexible
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Coffee shop employee and world traveller
    Marital Status: Single
    Birthday: August 1
    Ethnicity: Metis and a bit of Italian
    Religious Views: Organized religion is far too close-minded for her liking
    Political Views: Highly complex
    Languages: English and French
    Education Level: High school graduate
    Theme Song: 'Brother' by Gerard Way, and 'Savages' by Breathe Carolina

    Personality
    Ryder is naturally hard edges and jagged corners, and it most definitely shows. She is smug and sarcastic more often than not, and definitely known for being a firecracker in a very different way. A sharp tongue and quick wit get her into far more trouble than she should, but it all just seems to roll off her back like water. Often, she will come across as arrogant, condescending, and aloof, but that isn't always necessarily the case. Her attitude problem may be legendary, but it isn't all there is to her once you get to know her outside of work and the bars she frequents. Despite a distinct - and at times, glaringly obvious - lack of any sort of maternal instinct, there is a softer side, though it is often hidden beneath a more mischievous nature, and a plethora of friendly and well-meaning insults toward those she likes. That being said, she is easily one of the most laid-back, tolerant people you could ever come across, and can easily get along with just about anyone. Grudges, however, are something that she can hold forever once she's decided that she doesn't like a person, and will make it rather clear that she doesn't like you.

    Appearance
    Much like her personality, Ryder's look is very much a hard-edged one. Naturally pale, her makeup is often heavy and in dark shades, which goes hand-in-hand with the dark hair she's usually sporting, and making her appear even more pale. Her cheekbones, eyebrows, and eyeliner could all easily cut a man, as could the coolly indifferent - almost smug - expression she seems to naturally fall into. Clothing-wise, she seems to either be dressed to impress, or for a day of slouching around on the couch, and there is no real in between. Her favourite combinations seem to be long, baggy T-shirts, short shorts, and thigh-high socks or stockings, paired with large platform boots, or baggy cargo pants and a tanktop. Either way, her clothing seems designed for showing off her figure, and she wouldn't have it any other way.

    Height | Weight: 5ft 4 | 110 lbs
    Build: Petite
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Blue/grey | Bounces between black with blue and silver streaks, and varying shades of purple
    Piercings: Multiple in each ear, belly button, septum, both nostrils, Medusa, and vertical labret (though she doesn't wear anything in it often)
    Tattoos: Medicine Buddha Mantra in Sanskrit on her inner left arm, and the beginnings of an octopus side piece on her left side
    Scars: Nothing major


    MacKenzie Juarez-Laurent (open)

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: Mac or Alex, though he prefers Mac
    Age: 22
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Straight
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Unemployed, collecting disability
    Marital Status: Single, and generally disinterested
    Birthday: June 2
    Ethnicity: Spanish, Italian, and Metis
    Religious Views: He has a love/hate relationship with god
    Political Views: Don't ask...
    Languages: English, and a bit of French and Spanish
    Education Level: Some high school
    Theme Song: 'The Red' by Chevelle

    Personality
    On the surface, Mac is the quiet one in just about every situation. He prefers to sit back, and simply observe the people around him, taking in little details that most would think insignificant and filing them away for later. His tendency to do so seems to unnerve most people who aren't familiar with him, though he pays no attention to this. People fascinate him, and he isn't afraid of them in the slightest, like most quiet individuals seem to be. If you say what you want or need around him, he is very much the type to give you the shirt off of his own back without so much as a single thought. Most of the time, he is a rather laid-back, likeable guy, though he does come across as a know-it-all at times. That being said, he does have his issues, namely the fact that he has to take medication to avoid paranoid delusions of some unknown organization coming to take his teeth. When the delusions take hold, he can be rather unpredictable, though it is rare for him to actually hurt anyone.

    Appearance
    Overall, Mac is a pretty unassuming person. On the taller end of average, the only thing people seem to really notice about him is the fact that he is incredibly thin and lanky, and the fact that he rarely seems to show any expression other than mild displeasure. Like most males his age, his standard attire is mainly T-shirts, fitted jeans, and hoodies. He also goes through phases where he develops quite the fondness for beanies, though it seems rather short-lived at times. Glasses are another staple to his wardrobe, especially of the horn rimmed variety, though he's been experimenting with contact lenses more often as of late.

    Height | Weight: 6ft even | 123lbs
    Build: In dire need of calories
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Brown | Blonde
    Piercings: None
    Tattoos: None
    Scars: A few here and there


    Dallas Emery Desoto (open)

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: He's not exactly fond of nicknames from most people
    Age: 25
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Homoflexible
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Short order cook at Château Noir
    Marital Status: Still getting over his last relationship
    Birthday: October 28
    Ethnicity: Total grab-bag
    Religious Views: Somewhere between agnostic and atheist
    Political Views: Apathetic
    Languages: English and a little Spanish
    Education Level: High school graduate
    Theme Song: 'XO' by Fall Out Boy

    Personality
    Perhaps the first thing most people notice about Dallas is the blunt honesty he is known for. To say that he is the type to wear his heart on his sleeve is definitely an understatement, as there seems to be absolutely no filter between brain and mouth when it comes to telling the truth. He has a tendency to be rather candid about things, even if the topic is the sort that most would consider to be traumatic or taboo. Many people who either don't know him all that well, or have just met him, would say that he is rather intimidating, as he is the type to just quietly observe things at first, but his friends are quick to call him the world's biggest teddy bear. The truth of the matter is that he is relatively cautious around new people, but throws caution to the wind after only a short time of knowing someone, quickly becoming best friends with everyone. Thanks to his twin sister, Shiloh, he tends to have a rather calming effect on the rougher aspects of people, and can quickly dissolve a bad attitude with little effort. Of course, that doesn't mean he is liked by everyone he meets, as he does have something of a reputation for being quite the slut. He will often sleep around, with just about anyone that catches his attention, and sees no issue with his doing so, or when others do it. As long as nobody is being harmed and relationships aren't strained in the process, he doesn't see any harm in it...

    Appearance
    It isn't all that hard to say that Dallas has something of a baby face, and looks like he's still stuck in his teenage years half the time. That being said, he is a rather distinctive-looking individual, both in terms of general aesthetics and especially his clothing. In fact, he seems to dress like some strange cross between a biker, Halloween costume, and a pop-punk band member, often sporting dark wash skinny jeans with a leather jacket or some sort of vest. Makeup and slightly more feminine clothes aren't something he shies away from any more, mainly thanks to Cam, although he still definitely keeps the male aspects of his appearance more obvious.

    Height | Weight: 5ft 11 | 180lbs
    Build: Stocky
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Dark brown | Blue-grey, though he has congenital heterochromia which affects his right eye, giving it a bleached appearance
    Piercings: Stretched ears and angel bites
    Tattoos: Numerous, along his chest, neck, arms, and up the side of his head.
    Scars: Some self-harm scars from his teenage years, though they're mostly covered by tattoos


    Kieran Sawyer (open)

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: Friends often call her Kier
    Age: 26
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Bisexual, leaning more toward women
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Occult shop owner
    Marital Status: 'Keeping my options open'
    Birthday: October 20
    Ethnicity: English, Polish, and a little bit of Italian
    Religious Views: Every natural thing in the universe has a soul, and that needs to be respected
    Political Views: Politics is garbage in her opinion
    Languages: English, Quebec French, and Turkish
    Education Level: High school graduate
    Theme Song: 'Galway Girl' by Steve Earle

    Personality
    At the root of things, Kieran is a simple creature. Quiet by nature, she definitely appreciates the little things, and seems to hold animals above people in most situations. That is not to say, of course, that she is a misanthrope by any means, as her beliefs are simply that animals are more genuine than humans could ever really be. There are some people she does like... Though she tends to be on the more quiet side, she can be rather boisterous around people she likes, and often treats them like her older brothers; starting play fights and teasing constantly. The general rule is, if she likes you, she's going to tackle your ass to the ground at some point. That being said, she is also a rather spiritual person, and seems to be far more attuned to the general energy around her, picking up on emotions and things people would never think they are displaying far more strongly than you'd ever think possible.

    Appearance
    No matter where you meet her, Kieran has an aesthetic that is hard to forget, despite its simplicity. Never having been one for big, dramatic styles, she likes to keep it simple for the most part. Black eyeliner, red lipstick, and pale skin seem to be her staples, and she wears them quite well. The lipstick is something she attributes to her mother's influence, recalling the woman often saying 'Wearing lipstick is a way to mark things as yours', and she never seems to tire of leaving bright red smears across cups, cheeks, cigarette butts, and anything else she presses her lips to. In regards to her clothing, she is very fond of skirts that run on the shorter side, showing off thick but muscular thighs, and vests with collars or button-up shirts. She also has quite the fondness for bandannas, jackets, and fingerless gloves.

    Height | Weight: 5ft 8 | 160lbs
    Build: On the naturally muscular side of average
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Dark brown | Brown
    Piercings: Ears
    Tattoos: A 3/4 sleeve on her left arm, dedicated to Chinese New Year (one of her favourite events), along with a few others.
    Scars: Nothing major


    Ethan Hawthorne (open)

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: The only one who has successfully given him a nickname is Violet
    Age: 28
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Questionable
    Species: Human
    Occupation: Professional loafer and singer for Black September
    Marital Status: Single
    Birthday: October 2
    Ethnicity: He never paid attention when anyone told him
    Religious Views: Hardcore anti-theist
    Political Views: So far up the left wing's ass he hasn't seen daylight in years
    Languages: English
    Education Level: High school drop-out
    Theme Song: 'Take Me to Church' by Hozier

    Personality
    In a single word, Ethan is stoic in almost all situations, and definitely a man who prefers letting his actions speak for themselves. Though he is definitely a lone wolf, he does share his brothers' penchant for being rowdy, and he can definitely become the life of the party when he wants to be. Despite what his reputation may lead you to believe, he is quite charismatic and charming, and fully understands the value of words, especially when it comes to his favourite targets; attractive women and men he wants to see more of. Loyalty is important to him, though nobody is quite sure where his own allegiances lie at the end of the day, which has earned him the reputation for being rather unpredictable. He can be quite brutish at times, and will often try to beat something into submission as a gut reaction before trying to think it through.

    Appearance
    Ethan is positively massive in comparison to the average person, which - along with blonde hair and blue eyes - hints to at least one of his parents having some sort of Norse background, though he never paid full attention. His standard facial expression seems to be one of sheer distaste for everything going on around him, and it doesn't take much to slip into a permanent scowl at the smallest of things. Though not vain by any means, it is very clear that his hair is Ethan's pride and joy, and you will never see it unkempt, or pulled back in any sense of the word. He likes the way it hangs in his face. As far as clothing is concerned, he is incredibly casual, preferring T-shirts, jeans, and a pair of steel toe boots, often with a simple leather jacket or hoodie over top.

    Height | Weight: 6ft 4 | 260lbs
    Build: Just big overall, though not fat by any means
    Eye Colour | Hair Colour: Blonde, dyed black | Light blue
    Piercings: Ears and tongue
    Tattoos: A few, though he doesn't really talk about them much, or draw attention to them.
    Scars: He has his fair share
