On the planet of Stoicheion has four tribes that coexist. Each tribe has a control over their element. The water tribe lives in a gorgeous domain. Their watery playground is comprised of many spring water streams and waterfalls, full of underwater caves and mysterious waterways. The fire tribe lives in a luscious forest. Their tree houses high above, rich in oxygen, helped maintain their element. The earth tribe dwells in the desert, buried beneath the sand lies an oasis, rich and fruitful. Ancient cities thought to be lost, now their homes. The air tribe reach mountain tops, making the caves high above their home. Though they may coexist, they do not live peacefully among each other. All tribesmen are born with an inert hatred for all the others. Feeling superior, they must take over the other tribes and make the planet theirs. Not all think this. There are some that believe in peace. Some have even met other tribesman. Not on their land or the others, but in the jungle area that divides the tribes. This is the only place able to sustain all from each tribe. Here, some meet in secret. Or to get away from war. Other information All people have the ability to shapeshift. Depending on the tribe, blood line, and status depends on what. Also, each tribesmen have a certain amount of control over an element. That control is also dependent on blood line, status, etc. Life span is from 150-200 years. This idea was not fully mine. Credit goes to secluded inkling. I just helped progress an idea. Main Characters Water Tribe leader : D'evil Fire Tribe leader : Secluded Inkling Air Tribe leader : Secluded Inkling Earth Tribe leader : D'evil Water Tribesmen : trackerofthenorth Fire Tribesmen : theLogophile Air Tribesmen : Dazzle Earth Tribesmen : Fluffy Characters' Abilities Each character that's not a leader has the ability to "bend" their element to a certain degree. But they are weaker than the tribe leaders. So no making tidal waves and earthquakes or tornadoes or giant explosions. Also, each person has a resistance to their own element except in the case of a leader striking one of their own. (This won't happen. It's more of "you step out of line, you get dealt with") Everyone has the ability to shift into an animal. Each element will have a specific area of animals. Earth - reptiles. Fire - dogs (fox, wolves, etc. No household dogs). Water - aquatic animals (preferably ferocious). Air - avian creatures. There are limitations. Only the leaders have a big transformation. I.e. water leader - great white, earth - giant rattlesnake. Also, cause water creatures will be useless outside of water, everyone can control transformations to be partial. I.e. shark skin and teeth.

First come first serve. My Characters Name : Lilian Tridus Tribe : Water Age : 62 Appearance : Animal : Great White Short Bio : Growing up in the frivolous wonders of the water tribe, Lilian found the best way to rule was to have strict yet lenient policies. Rule with an iron fist and a warm heart. Once her mother felt it was her time to step down, Lilian took her place. Her mother, who is now 142, helps with any political issues they may have. Her husband died when she was only 43, so now she frolics with her people more often than she should. Personality : Kind hearted yet cold. She has an air to her that speaks of dominance and power. Name : Sammael Rishna Tribe : Earth Age : 58 Appearance : Animal : Giant Rattlesnake Short Bio : Sammael is a harsh woman. She rules her land like the cold-blooded animal she is. She is kind to her people, but no one dares to defy her wishes. At a young age, she showed great talent in her abilities to transform and bend her element. She is the only one in her tribe to bend sand. Her husband, a great warrior, died by her venom. It was not intentional, they just had an accident in bed. To this day, she does not regret her actions, but uses the memory to guide her through life. Personality : Cold, like the desert sand at night..
