    [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Family: [/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Brother, Waverider; Mother, [/FONT][/SIZE][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Nymphana[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Personality: [/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Once a carefree mermaid living off the coast of Australia, Vibrenta now despises her new habitat and seeks someone to help free her. She was once kind, but she became bitter over the years. She was a powerful warrior of the sea, but her spear was taken and put on display, a fact that still wounds her, as the weapon was forged by her late father. She hates herself sometimes for allowing herself to be captured, but she uses that hate to fuel her anger.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]History: [/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Vibrenta and her brother swam farther out into the ocean than they ever had before, and they had never encountered nets before. Her brother, Waverider, managed to elude them, but Vibrenta's tail became tangled in one. Tugging too hard, she was pulled up by a group of fishermen and promptly tied up and forced to swim alongside the boat. She heard that another one had been captured, but she never saw who it was, only hoping that it wasn't Waverider. She was taken to a zoo and dropped into a tank of salt water with a massive salt water crocodile. Instead of trying to kill the beast, she was able to communicate her fears and angers to it, and they became allies in the fight to escape.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Current Goal/Purpose: [/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana]Vibrenta and her crocodile friend, who she has dubbed Shark, seek escape from the zoo's salt water habitat and hope to return home to the real ocean, where she hopes her father and brother wait for her.[/FONT][/SIZE]

  3. Name: ---
    Gender: Male
    Age: Looks 14 or 15
    Species: Unknown
    Family: None
    Personality: Nervous, Pessimistic, Stealthy, Distrustful, Odd Sense of Humor, Often Speaks to Himself
    History: He's lived his entire life on his own, scrounging around the bottom of a forgotten lake and keeping himself hidden from predators- namely The Beast. The largest alligator that called the lake home. There were more when he was younger but they were killed off slowly over the years. He lives eating the algae, seaweed and small critters that live in the muck at the bottom of the lack. He rarely ventures on land. He likes to hide under docks or boats of fishermen and listen to them talk and learned to speak.
    Current Goal/Purpose: One day after hanging around alongside a boat while a man was teaching his daughter to fish he swam distracted back to his latest resting spot. He was thinking about the girl because he'd never seen anything like her before. While he was thinking The Beast managed to sneak up on him. It attacked and, after a very intense struggle and chase he ended up hiding behind a large fallen tree with a very serious bite on his leg. The Beast slowly made his way closer and closer, ripping through the soft wood. Out of desperation, he took the longest, sharpest fish hook he had an jammed it into The Beasts left eye. While it was distracted he swam as fast as he could to the surface and rushed as far away from the water as he could get. he didn't dare go back because he knew The Beast would be waiting for him and it would be very, very angry. He had lost a lot of blood and was weak. He passed out on a flat stretch of dirt that turned out to be a small trail that lead from the doc to the cabin where the young girl and her father were staying.
    That same day the girl- who was not enjoying the fishing trip with her new step-father at all- got into an argument with him. She'd stormed off angrily down the path. It quickly turned dark and just as she was beginning to think it a good idea to turn back she came upon the boy. At first she was frightened, then she thought he was dead (even poking him with a stick to check) but then she saw his body moving as he breathed and decided that she would take care of him. being very careful of his leg, she picked him up, he was tall, but very skinny and very light, and she carried him back to the cabin. She put him in her bathtub and filled it up with water. Just as she was getting ready to tend to his leg her stepfather came in. She almost told him about the boy but decided not to because of some gut instinct.
    Later on they discover that the man is actually a scientist who was tinkering- illegally- with genetics and mutation and created the boy. He dumped him in the lake when it seemed he would be caught and did not expect him to survive. He came back to collect some information he'd left behind and became interested again after he'd heard about a monster that was thought to live in the lake and surrounding marshland.
    Appearance: Skinny with long muscular arms and legs, would be tall if he stood up strait. Fingers and toes also long and webbed all the way to the last joint. His skin is tinted green and be blends in well with his surroundings. His eyes are light green, the 'white' part being tinted slightly green as well. He has gills on his neck, five on each side. The one's on his left have three scars that run down through them, onto his shoulder and arm. His canines are slightly sharper than a humans, the rest of his teeth strait and white. His hair is shoulder length, wavy and dark green like seaweed. He wears a skirt type thing made of seaweed and braided sash made with seaweed, netting, rope and fishing line that he uses to old things he thinks are useful like fishhooks and such. His skin has a kind of slippery exterior when wet like most river creatures.
