So this is my take on your character Princess Nera, hope you like it 😀April 18, 2016 at 11:26 am #135181
Wow, you really pulled out an obscure character there didn’t you. I had to go back and look to check I was remembering which character it was correctly.
Anyway. I adore the scale sleeves and the whole top to be honest. And the crown obviously. And of course the background. Love it.April 18, 2016 at 3:21 pm #135184
Anyway, since I’ve been focusing on Lili a lot recently, I thought I’d give Danni a bit of love, and three new sets of clothes too boot. Which one do you guys like the most?April 18, 2016 at 5:45 pm #135185
Personally, I like danni wearing ’em jeans and jacket. Really great stuff here man.April 18, 2016 at 11:35 pm #135193
@Lightningsword- Cheers dude.April 19, 2016 at 6:11 am #135199

Yea she was bit of a weird choice considering all the amazing characters you have, i picked her because i thought she would suit my style more and i didn’t see a remake of her on your pages plus iv always wanted to do a Atlantean character 😀 there is plenty of your characters id like to give a go whenever you up for another trade ! 🙂April 20, 2016 at 3:15 pm #135227
@Yin- I’ll definitely take you up on that, but not now. Gonna concentrate on some other stuff first.
Here whole life all Lauren Keiler wanted to do was dance. She did ballet as a child and trained in various classical and contemporary dances at a specialised dance school. Unfortunately, her dreams were crushed when she was hit by a drunk driver on her way back from a club with some of her friends shortly after her 19th birthday. The crash damaged her spine so badly that she lost the use of her legs and she fell into a serious depression. However, she found a new lease of life when she discovered wheelchair dancing and other wheelchair sports. She now helps run a local disabled sports club and is part of a contemporary wheelchair dance group.
Remake of this
Wheelchair stolen from MadJack. Hopefully he doesn’t need it.
Anyway, I’m getting rid of the whole “Samurai spirit warrior” aspect I had with the original version of this character, because I kinda always found it a bit silly, even just after I’d done it originally. Plus I’m going to be incorporating Lauren in the same “world” as Lili and Danni, so no superheroes or such-like in there thanks.April 25, 2016 at 3:34 pm #135326
Anyway. I’ve had an interesting last couple of days. Yesterday I managed to take the skin of half of my right palm so that was fun (’tis but a flesh wound) and meant I had very little movement in the hand I use to do pretty much everything. It was also quick amusing trying to take a shower this morning without getting my right hand wet. Luckily, my fingers do work. But judging by how many times I’ve had to correct typos on this post, they don’t work that well. Word of advise, doing what is basically a baseball slide is fine, so long as its not on gravel and as long as you don’t have your hand under you at the time. Actually, best not fall over at all. Because in a fight between you and the ground, the ground wins every time. And now as a segue, I’ve redesigned Sempi again for reasons.May 30, 2016 at 2:57 pm #135986June 8, 2016 at 12:53 am #136126
LtR- Enabler, Chance, Manara, Nike, R-Gen, Double Trouble, Shift, Shutterfly, White LieJune 8, 2016 at 4:15 pm #136131
Name: Amanda Ashford
Powers: Power Enhancement, Power Mimicry, Power Sensing
Bio: Born by a surrogate mother for a gay couple who wished to have a family. Active campaigner for LGBT Rights. Formed PRIDE with Double Trouble after xe stopped an assassination attempt on her.
During Time Skip: In the two years since we last saw PRIDE a lot has changed. For Enabler’s part, the passing of the Gay Marriage Bill was a huge victory and she finally got to see her fathers get married. However, it hasn’t all been rosy. She was hospitalised during a battle with the Negadroid and was then kidnapped from the hospital by The Knights Of Purity, who tried to lynch her on video. They also firebombed her house after she was rescued by the rest of PRIDE. She has since relocated to what she calls “The Safehouse”, an apartment building owned by Chance’s uncle, where the rest of the team have also moved.
Name: Michael Chase
Powers: Probability Manipulation
Bio: Former colleagic athlete, disbarred from competition due to his powers. Currently dating his team-mate Shift. Uncle owns the teams place of residence (unofficially known as “The Safehouse”).
Since Time Skip: In the last two years, Chance has had a few interesting experiances. He almost got himself killed whilst putting his powers to use in Las Vegas in order to gain enough money for him and Shift to buy a house, which he will admit was a dumb idea. He also found out his partners secret (which we will come to late). Fortunately it didi affect their relationship in any major way. Away from the team, he’s trying to get his own gym started. It isn’t going brilliantly, but luck can’t solve everything, hard-work is needed too as his dad always said.
Name: Farah Al-Mansur
Powers: Light/ Heat Energy Absorption/ Release
Bio: The daughter of Syrian immigrants, her family were killed whilst visiting family in Syria shortly after the civil war started. Farah was at college in America at the time so didn’t go with her family. However, the news of her family’s deaths awoke her latent power to absorb and control heat and light energy. Given the nature of her powers, added on to her Islamic heritage and her suddenly very withdrawn behaviour, she was shunned by many of her college peers and eventually, in a moment of heightened emotional stress, she lost control of her powers. Fortunately, she was stopped by PRIDE, whose member White Lie attended the same college and she joined the team, at first as an ally, but she soon began to develop feelings for another member of the team. She now constantly struggles, not only with her powers and their unpredictable nature, but also reconciling her feelings with her faith.June 9, 2016 at 4:00 pm #136179
Alias: Nicola Palladou
Powers: Flight, enhanced healing factor and strength
Bio: An alien Princess from the planet Altar, crashed on Earth whilst trying to escape alien slavers and now stranded. She was rescued from her ship by PRIDE and joined the team in order to learn more about the world she was stuck on.
Since Time Skip: Nike’s cavalier attitude to relationships really caused the team problems in the two years since we last saw them. At that point she was dating R-Gen, however Nike started cheating on her girlfriend with Double Trouble (both of them. At the same time, obviously). This led to R-Gen trying to mind control Nike and then nearly killing Double Trouble. Unfortunately, Nike didn’t learn and began to become uncomfortably flirty with Manara, earning herself a beat down from Enabler after she refused to stop making the newcomer uncomfortable. However, Nike has had her moments. She saved her entire team from Kratos, her vengeful brother, as well as being crucial in foiling an assassination attempt by Ironside of the AnarchQueers.
Name: Jennifer Rudd
Powers: Extensive Regenerative Capabilities, Mind Control (through use of biological pheromones), Reactive Adaptation.
Bio: A tomboy lesbian who was kicked out by her devout Catholic family and forced to live on the streets, where she developed somewhat of a fear of abandonment and being alone. She was later taken in by Enabler and Double Trouble as a member of PRIDE.
Since Time Skip: The last two years have not been good on R-Gen. First her father contracted cancer and refused treatment, dying some time later. This sent her into a depression which was only worsened when she discovered that her girlfriend, Nike, was cheating on her with her best friend, Double Trouble. At first she tried to force Nike to be faithful by controlling her using her pheromone powers, but Enabler and Double Trouble found out. In the argument that followed, R-Gen almost killed one of the twins by forcing xem to strangle xirself under the influence of her pheromones. As if to make matters worse, when Double Trouble managed to fuse, the ensuing fight nearly demolished the “Safehouse” and only ended when White Lie intervened. In the years since he joined, White Lie and R-Gen have become quite close, sharing a similar upbringing in Catholic households and both having to deal with life without parents, they developed a brother-sister relationship, and are probably the closest friends of the entire team.
Name: Kim Da-Hyeon
Alias: Double Trouble
Powers: Super Human Strength, Speed, Endurance, Resistance To Harm, Healing Factor (all halved when in split form).
Bio: The product of an experiment to create the perfect human, Double Trouble is one person in two halves, male and female, and can fuse these two halves into one superhuman being. However, xir amalgamated form is unstable, so xe can’t hold it for extended periods of time. When in separate forms xe can pass xirself off as twins and both halves can feel what the other is feeling and tell what the other is thinking.
Since Time Skip: Other than being the cause of a messy break up between two of xir teammates and almost having one half of xirself killed by one of said teammates, the last two years have been alright for Double Trouble. Xe fought what could be called xir “father” in the Negadroid (whose technology was used in the creation of xem) and managed to reconcile xir feelings on being artificially created. Xe also developed a new method for fighting, taking advantage of xir ability to fight as two people, giving the team essentially an extra person in a fight. However, xe doesn’t really like fighting in that fashion, as xe feels more comfortable in xir amalgamated form, plus the amalgamated form is as powerful as both split forms combined anyway.
(Hopefully I got the pronouns right this time. I bow to DiCicatriz senpai’s greater knowledge on this subject).June 10, 2016 at 3:15 pm #136214
Name: Alex (Alexandra) Kane
Powers: Biological Manipulation (Limited shape shifting, with focus can enhance one sense at a time, can control adrenaline output and other hormones to induce different positive effects).
Bio: Born as a girl, although he always felt he was born in the wrong body. Without enough money to undergo gender reassignment surgery, he struggled until his ability to manipulate aspects of his own biology became apparent, specifically his ability to manipulate his own DNA. He can now hold a male form almost indefinitely, only returning to his female form when under great emotional stress. He kept this secret from his friends ever since he joined PRIDE and has since started dating Chance.
Since Time Skip: Shortly after White Lie joined the team, Shift approached him for help. He confessed about his past and how he felt guilty about keeping it secret from his friends, but that he was scared Chance would reject him if he found out. So he asked White Lie to use his power to make it that he’d always been a guy. However, this backfired horribly as Shift’s powers reacted badly to the change, malfunctioning whenever Shift tried to use them and eventually going into meltdown due to the paradox. Unfortunately, this led to White Lie having to reveal the lie he’d told, exposing Shift’s secret to the rest of the team. Fortunately, the only bad reaction Shift received was that his friends were disappointed that he felt he’d needed to keep it a secret. Although his powers are functioning normally again now, he is finding it harder to hold his transformations and has to revert to his natural (female) form more often to recharge. Chance is supportive at least, so the problem isn’t as bad as it could have been.
Name: Sarah Stein
Powers: Hyper-active molecular structure (super-fast teleportation and phasing, possibly even molecular manipulation if she were to sit still long enough to figure out how to do it).
Bio: No-one in PRIDE exactly knows where Shutterfly came from. She just sort of turned up one day and didn’t go away. Normally this would be unwelcome, but not only is Shutterfly really useful in a fight (her teleportation ability meaning she can practically be in two places at once, a party trick she has pulled many times at the Safehouse), but her antics and energy helped the rest of the team through some of their toughest times. Hyper-active with a generally short attention span, when she does slow down she can actually be an incredibly insightful friend. She helped Manara find her place in the group and looked out for the rookie hero during their first few fights together. However, not all of the team are fully taken with Shutterfly. Nike views her as a bit of a threat to her status in the team (and in life in general), due to Shutterfly’s easy way with people and ability to connect with others without flirting, something which Nike has yet to manage with humans. Shutterfly just views Nike as someone else to be friends with.
Name: Tavio Fernandez
Alias: White Lie
Powers: Reality Manipulation (manifested in making any conscious lie he tells become true).
Bio: Born in American to a Mexican family who had illegally crossed the border, Tavio lost his parents young due to local gang violence and was passed around the foster system for years. His teenage years didn’t go well, his emerging powers and uncertain sexuality making him many enemies. However, he met Chance through a mutual friend (one of the local foster care workers) and Chance took him under his wing.
Since Time Skip: The last two years have been busy for Tavio. Between exposing Shift’s greatest secret, to stopping R-Gen and Double Trouble from killing each other, to introducing Manara to the team, the kid has managed to find the time to graduate high-school and get into college, where he is studying Politics. He works a part-time job at Chance’s gym, helping out where he can. He has also come to terms with his sexuality, bi-sexual leaning more towards straight, but he prefers to classify himself as queer, as he’s not really gay, bisexual or straight, just somewhere in between all three.June 18, 2016 at 3:39 pm #136360
If anyone recognises this character, they’re getting brownie points.June 25, 2016 at 3:28 pm #136476
Victoria Lewis is one of a small number of people world wide who are born with an innate psychic ability, known as Espers. These people, around 0.0001% of the population, have abilities ranging from minor mind control to a full house of Telepathy, Telekinesis, Mind Control and Precognition. The power of these psychic abilities is measured on a scale of 1 to 6 (1 being minor, 6 being potentially severely dangerous). Victoria is a level 3 telekinetic, able to lift objects up to her own body weight off of the ground without touching them. This alone would make her a person of interest to many agencies around the world. However, here Esper abilities are not the only interesting thing about Victoria. In her early twenties, she contracted the Vampirism Virus and now her psychic powers are both augmented and tempered by the effects of the condition. This has made her a fascinating case study in both the effects of the virus and how an Espers abilities are affected by such a condition, as is it common knowledge amongst those who deal with such affairs that Espers have immense mental resilience and Victoria has yet to succumb to the viruses influence over her mind. Victoria now struggles with living a normal life whilst also living with her vampiric condition.
Vampirism (excerpt taken from the International Medical Journal. 15th Edition)
Vampirism, like Lycanthropy (see page 89), has long been considered a supernatural phenomenon. However, recent advances in medicine have shown that neither affliction are caused by supernatural means. Whilst Lycanthropy is genetic, Vampirism has been discovered to be an advanced mutation of the Rabies virus. It is contracted in much the same way as a normal Rabies virus, through a bite to the victim. The first symptoms are a change in the pigmentation of the iris, taking on a more reddish hue, and the growth of the canine teeth. The victim soon becomes unable to digest anything but raw red meat and develops a high sensitivity to UV rays and certain chemicals, most notably those produced by the Allium genus of plant (the genus that contains all members of the Onion family, such as Garlic). Last negative symptom to show in victims, is a loss of mental stability, most commonly a loss of empathy and sudden violent rages. It is at this stage that the sufferer will develop the urge to pass on the virus and find a victim to bite. The most common area for bites to be administered is around the neck, however this could be due to cultural influences (from movies and such) rather than a natural instinct. The most interesting aspect of this form of Rabies is that, unlike all other viruses, it actually has positive symptoms. The virus actively keeps its victim alive, increasing their cell regeneration rather than stunting it, so as to give the appearance of the victim aging at a much slower rate than normal, and having a much faster healing rate than a normal human. It also increases the production of adrenaline when in a high pressure situation, giving the victim a further boost to their physical strength and ability to react to stimuli than a normal adrenaline rush would.
