-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? This is an interesting question that I haven't fully fleshed out yet. The answer is "somewhere arid and dry"; I have a sketched out idea of their personal history, but nothing too solid yet. -What are your character's goals? Magic, mainly. That, and flying without the aid of creatures. -What are your goals for your character(s)? They need to make friends, and if characters making weapons ever becomes a thing, I want that for them. -Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? I'm making a playlist I'll edit my character sheet with at some point, but right now the main song on it is Iodine by Icon For Hire -What is your character currently doing? Trying to get used to being in this weird place -How close are you to your big goals? Just started. xD -If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? Give them the kennel they deserve that isn't at least twice the size it should be because I'm a sentimental- -What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? Fun fact, when I came out as nonbinary I needed a new middle name, and Dae ended up becoming my new name and will- legally- become my name at some point. -What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? They and Liberty have a lot in common.
Flare came along as part of when I was crafting my v3 mining test character Rajiste; mainly his gardening counterpart whom they knew each other as friends ic. Ingame, Flare is from Tumai, the desert city at the Red Wall. He's a long way from home.
Flare's goals... Flare wants to cultivate a beautiful garden, find a creature to assist with his disability and I forget what else offhand.
My own goals for Flare is to attempt an old system of trying to keep my creature count moderate with having goals to meet with his current creatures. They need to either be loyal enough for the loyalty 15 obedience bonuses or taught the basics, have three successful harvests if possible, and make 150c in order to open a slot. So far its not working as pachee multiply like bunnies.
No songs as of yet; I've not thought about it;
Currently, Flare is working on getting himself situated in his little hovel tent just over the fence to his garden. He's taken his pachee to breed recently, and the sudden upswing in the amount of creatures he needs to watch is overwhelming. Went from 3 to 6 in a month.
Pak, my regular brown pachee, is likely the closest to a big goal of opening a slot in my system. Though I may be miscounting on floral bond, so I need to double check that.
If there was one thing I could do for Flare, I'd be seeing about getting him drawn when/if Darky's bust drawings open up. She did a great job with Skye, Rajiste and another ssashirk character I made previously. I haven't fully crafted his wardrobe, so.. he's been walking around with basically nothing.
My favorite pet of Flare's is a tossup between Pak and Sidewinder, the raptor brown. The art I got from Haix for Sidewinder solidified that he's one of my favorite unbroken wild browns to play. ~No I don't like velociraptors that much... ok I do~
Flare has spent the most time with Pak and Monarch, his evergreen king. Favorite? Hasn't really picked one.
I'd like to do some more socializing with Flare in places outside the garden; he's gone mining once and I think mansioning once. Magical areas seem to have an unusual effect on him... wonder why. :o
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? Renathan was a character that was a long time in the making. He's got a lot of aspects from different characters I've had in the past; he's basically a conglomeration of all of them. He's mostly here to do 'site things', like Mining, Gardening, etc. Anything that has loot. He was originally meant to be a lot 'cooler' and 'aloof' than he is, but he's really just a ball of nerves anymore. He hardly gets out or anything.
EDIT: Forgot to answer the second part! Renathan is from a continent across from Pethia, on the side where the red wall is. He actually migrated to the Labs-City due to feeling a connection that he couldn't quite name (a draconic's spirit calling for him; Mintaka actually); and had to go over the red wall, and through the desert to do it. His people have a very different culture than Native Pethians!
-What are your character's goals? Renathan really wanted to be a pit champion for a long time, but I don't think he cares as much anymore (phobia of losing is getting the best of him finally).
-What are your goals for your character(s)? I don't really feel like I am... supposed to have goals anymore. I plan to kinda back away on most of my old goals because I'm not feeling them anymore. Then again, a lot of my goals are already done (he's noded, he's training his pets, etc.) I guess I plan to train as many of my pets as possible now, and just... Play the game leisurely?
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? With Renathan? Probably Nickelback's 'How you Remind Me'. His pets DO have dedicated songs though! (Auburn) has 3 Doors Down's 'Landing in London', (Shy Guy) is Fallout Boy's 'Twin Skeletons', and (Lisle) has Story of the Year's 'Swallow the Knife'.
-What is your character currently doing? He's being an Artificer! He loves his job, has always wanted to be one. He can craft nearly anything, he's a big artist. <3 I love him. He's currently trying to gather supplies to do this with, and of course make some extra cash. He loves the Labs-City life.
-How close are you to your big goals? -shrug- Don't really have any big goals anymore for my character. As for me in relation to the site, I want to make this place the BEST possible!
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? I really, really want Shy Guy to have a dedicated lifemate; I am planning someday (if baakir are ever available for customs) making him a baakir lifemate. <3 I really want to do in-house (just me) lifemate roleplays for fun.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? Oh geeze. Uh, probably a mix between Shy Guy and Auburn. <3 I love them both for different reasons.
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? He loves Shy Guy, Auburn, and Lisle equally.

Riku is totally me. Heh...I know we’re supposed to keep them separate, but since I created him, he’s always been me. Grew with me as I aged. His view on life (and fashion) grew with me as well.
As for hometown, Riku was pretty much a ‘prince’, except that his home-kingdom wasn’t a monarchy. They were a socially advanced society of balance and equality - like a utopia. So he was the son of the co-prime-ministers...and therefore expected to follow in their footsteps. HOWEVER, he was a spoiled brat who was raised by the city’s arch-mage since his parents were so busy. He ended up stealing a bunch of nodes and blowing the entire kingdom up by accident. That’s how he got the scar on his right hand/arm, and it’s also his dark secret. That he did it. “Rockoli Morale” is believed to have died with the rest of his kingdom. (And did, in a way...)
His goal is to become an arch mage both to utilize his magical aptitude and passion for the arcane, as well as to honor the arch mage who raised him, Cephalo, who was like a father/best friend/teacher. He intends to swallow a light node, but is going to collect all nine pieces before he does it in case he changes his mind and wants to collect a few nodes instead. There’s no going back if he swallows. (Plus, becoming infused with a ton of magic like that would remind him of when he killed everyone he loved. So he’s still very back and forth about it.)
He’s super biased towards the light and good and order, etc. He hates darkness and destruction. Anything ‘impure’ is seen as a threat to the benevolent. His plans are very closed-minded due to his darker past. He sort of needs to be extra good to convince himself he’s not evil. He also is very reliant on his future achievements and intangible magic, meaning that he wants all the hard work to be done for him (very Rickoli-like, but he’s oblivious to it) and he intends to eventually do everything with magic - whether it be banishing a hoard of demons or brushing his teeth. Another immature quality is that he believes he’s the only one destined for greatness, so he imagines his future conquests being done alone. Just him. Therefore, he must have an infinite amount of magic! (Another reason not to swallow a node.)
MY PLANS for him, of course, are different! Before he creates his first node he is going to meet his future familiar. That Malii (juvie custom, which will mysteriously arrive as a present from Cephalo - who secretly isn’t dead, by the way!) will be light AND dark oriented, IC’ly outside of the spectrum of good/evil. It will teach Riku that ‘light’ is just an energy, and darkness is just an absence of that energy....therefore expanding his mind into looking past the black and whites of the world. He’ll actually convince Riku to make his first node a dark one as a tribute to his new approach to life and their pact. He’ll use that to form the bond, and then create the light next (having already found all the pieces before being given the familiar.) Hollow will be his third, and the entire greater node will be given to his familiar. 7MP Hollow, and 2Mentality from the familiar-type skill that permanently takes away MP. (The third point in Mentality will come from that dark node.)
The familiar will also show him that he doesn’t have to do everything alone. Having a familiar in general will give him the (sentient) companionship he’s always craved (hence obsessing over Malii, who are literally the magical companion-oriented pets of MML). And taking a whole year’s worth of node-creation just to GIVE IT TO HIS FAMILIAR will be the tribute it talks him into making towards that new lifestyle.
On his own (and not pushed by his familiar or previous ‘dead’ mentor), he will realize that relying on his future success doesn’t give him any true advantage in the present. And, similarly, relying on magic to do all the work for him is not very realistic...or probably healthy, either. So he’ll take up combat training and learn to use the fire/ice staff you can buy from the shops. That way he won’t be entirely useless in battle (and adventures) without 40 nodes. Hahaha! -
Currently Riku is a Spelunker in the mines, which is a perfect job for him until he has a node. Now that he officially has the job, he has no excuse to put off his work towards his magical future. He’s also very equipped for the mines, skill-wise. And once he finds that node, he’ll already have the skills to jump to the 80 credit academic mage job.
I’d say he’s about....six months(?) from that next huge step? I mean, I have to find 18 crystals. (9 light then 9 dark) and roleplay his entire familiar meeting, philosophical revelation, etc.
From my long term goal? Ha! Like three years? That’s three nodes (for the foundational three (light/dark/hollow) before he gets the others just for collectional reasons), and a bunch of breedings and customs and then training to have his official ‘team’. -
My and Riku’s Favorite pet will eventually be that epic familiar. It’ll be like a celestial being outside of duality, sentient with telepathy.
However, of current creatures he owns? Hm.....
Revelation was a favorite of Riku’s (with empathetic link, even), but is IC dead of old age. That Malii’s daughter is Riku’s new protégé, and she’s his most trained pet to date. That’s Scarlet, the one I have in the tournament right now getting her booty kicked. Hahaha!
There are some epic crossbreeds I own for him, but ICly he only has Malii right now. OOC, Scarlet bred with my Gallor, Cephalo (named after the Arch Mage), to get one cross. Her brother, Cameron, is now OOC breeding with Twilight’s Gallor, Zepharos, to create a similarly themed cross. Both crosses will be IC’ly unrelated to the Malii and gifts from the old archmage’s ‘echo’. (As will soon be his amulet spirit.)
Cephalo, the arch mage, has been watching and guiding Riku all along in secret. He allowed him to believe he died back then to force him to grow up. Now that Riku’s maturing to the point of where he can actually take his life by the neck and shove his dreams down its throat, Cephalo is becoming more active. -
And again, Riku is entirely me. Maybe not in every current condition at every moment, but his core is Me, and my Heart, and my Dreams. These are all symbolic of what I have learned in life or had to go through, as well as things I am currently experiencing or know I will someday. Don’t worry, I don’t reflect Riku back onto myself. Hahaha! (Like if he were to die in a node-creating accident. HA!) However, Riku is a sort of journal and tribute to my own battles and revelations. I love him.
Also note, the way Riku acts IC’ly right now is not how I am in our reality. He’s out-dated. Hahaha! I want to show his growth over time and not just have him suddenly be in a better place just because I am. The journey...! That’s the real story. Not the happily ever after.
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? Morgan is a character that was an old MTG Planeswalker OC of mine that I changed to fit the MML world. Honestly, their story was really easy to put in the context of the Lab's City. Morgan used to be a self insert Planeswalker, but they really morphed into something else entirely over the years, and now is not remotely anything like me at all.
Morgan was born in the Labs-City. Morgan has a backstory that is a bit... Mysterious, but don't worry; I do have it as being one whole permanent thing. Morgan doesn't know their true backstory, and is a very unreliable narrator anyway, since they were so young when they were orphaned. If anyone wants to hear it; I may gab someday.
-What are your character's goals? Morgan wants to find out what happened to their Father (a low-ranking but still quite moneyed labs scientist that just... didn't come home one day). In the process, they plan to infilitrate the labs and train as many sentient and dangerous pets as possible to make an unstoppable army in pursuit of this goal.
-What are your goals for your character(s)? Needless to say, Morgan is never going to find out what happened to their father. ;3 However, Morgan may find out many other things in the process! Morgan is supposed to be a villain-turned-antihero kind of character. They have a lot of flaws, and I love to write flaws.
Also, I want a billion tat-lungs. It's going to happens. -rubs hands together-
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? Actually, found one. MSI's The Logical Song.
-What is your character currently doing? At this moment? Pissing off shopkeepers, trying not to go insane since the swallowing of the chaos node (which is causing some mental issues to worsen due to the chaos of being an elemental of such), and apparently, accidentally killing their pet. It's a cluster over here.
-How close are you to your big goals? No where near. I love that!
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? I'd really like to find some people for Morgan to piss off be a rival/villain to that wouldn't take what Morgan is to heart (like, I don't need people getting upset at me over something Morgan would do- Morgan is supposed to be a butt and not a representation of how I feel), and because of that I've been stalling on having roleplays with others.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? It's actually one that I've got planned for Morgan. xD I've got so many plans.
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? Probably Waar right now, but maybe a different one in the future?
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape?
Ashe doesn't have much of a /backstory/ so much as, he was made for this site and has evolved 90% with the site.
This is a complicated question, because Ashe was originally a female and, with Kagatoh's help, he and his girlfriend swapped genders and became men. This happened when V1 went to V2; ICly Kagatoh offered such services, rather than just the OOC "character revamp" so it's just stuck that way in his story ever since. However, with the magic used, and Ashe's instability and other issues she'd pushed down, after the gender swap, he lost memory of his time as a girl. This includes his childhood and everything else. He still knew the people he knew, such as having a crush on Alan and his best male friend Snakeh, and the pets he had adjusted and retained their loyalty, but relationships were tested. For example, Snakeh never quite got over the girl he liked becoming a guy. Alan stopped flirting back. His other friend Bumpeh suddenly became interested in him. Ashe went through a period of depression, coming from not remembering his past or knowing where he came from. He distanced himself from his now-boyfriend Silver, and set off on a path of self destruction. He threw himself into hardcore training monsters, sleeping with everything that moved, covering up his insecurities with over confidence, becoming ruthless and self centered. He's meddled in things he shouldn't even know about, he's dealt in slavery (purchasing an Imp from Yamase), he's nearly gotten himself killed several times. Along the way, he "faked it until he made it" and gained true confidence, put the fact he doesn't have a "past" behind him, and made a life here. Maybe one day he'll uncover answers, but that's not in the works or planned, he's not even searching.
-What are your character's goals?
+Strength and Notoriety He used to want to be the strongest, to be the name on everyones' lips when they trembled in awe and fear. He's spent his time in the limelight winning tournaments, he's built great foundations here. He leads the Keeps of Glory Aquatic division, he runs the Division's Aquarium, he has a massive farm, he works at the Midnight Panther and is a part of the Trainer's Guild. He's settled down with the love of his life, he has friends, he's come to terms with the fact there's always one person out there that might be better (usually Jack). Now he has the chance to focus on a different kind of power.
+Skeletal Army He's always wanted to raise the dead. He started with Beelzebub and worked his way through skeletal beasts, he's collected everything from Corpse Constructs to bone familiars to Shadow Lurkers. Anything dark, creepy, and unnerving is right up his alley. Training these to do his bidding, so to speak, is always a goal
+More Nodes It's been his goal to work Dark magic since the start - site allowing, Ashe is destined to be a Necromancer. Speaking to the dead, raising the dead to do his bidding, using darkness to his advantage, his familiar and other magical pets assisting him. He's just unlocked his first Dark Node and he plans to make a few more. He's rash and sometimes unstable, so he will need Chaos nodes to emulate that. One fire node.
+Pirate He wants his own ship one day, to sail the actual seas on adventures, seeking out treasure and magic.
+One Ring to Rule He wants to make a wedding ring and propose, which is a huge step for a former manwhore who never once thought settling down was in the cards.
-What are your goals for your character(s)?
Powerful Necromancer with a skeleton army sailing the seven seas seeking booty. I also wanted him to grow his sea pony but without Spirit... He's working on breeding his "ultimate Draconic" and is almost done.
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character?
Working on his magic skills, gathering materials for nodes. He also wants to get started training and breaking his T3 drakes, but right now it's about the magic. He got turned down to his Archmage's Understudy job so he's kind of embarrassed over that.
-How close are you to your big goals?
Literally just accomplished one (make a Greater Dark Node) so now it's back to the beginning for a Greater Chaos Node.
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do?
He is a grown man, he can make his own bed and lie in it.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours?
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours?
Inyala, probably. If we're not counting Familiars, Dracula.
Morgan, Ashe is open to rivals. He had one when Raziel was on the site, and he hasn't had one since. The trick is pissing him off (OOC I'd take no offense to anything in the RP itself).
I love that Ashe is very much the opposite of Riku in a lot of ways. I don’t even know if they should meet for Riku’s psychological development. It’s turn him even more against darkness and chaos....but perhaps that’d be an interesting way to trigger him for later growth and healing? I mean...he’d be afraid Ashe is what he’d turn into if he didn’t keep his dark side harshly in check.
Also, I love that you said “seeking booty” because it’s perfect as a double meaning. Hahaha! —
Morgan never finding answers about their dad makes me sad, but I totally get having a forever-open motivation to chip away at. I know they are meant to be a rival or even enemy - and like Ashe are sorta opposite of Riku, since he compulsively needs order - but I still only think riku would see them as a curious specimen to befriend rather than take personal offense from any attacks. I think he’d see a similar sort of isolation-created awkwardness that would draw him in with uncharacteristically resilient skin. —
Flare and Riku don’t seem to have anything in common. Riku doesn’t care for breedables because he sees them as a cheap way of doing what he is very passionate about - regular breedings. He sees statistically planned breedings paid to the labs like pure-breeding dogs, and situational breedings like pachee and sarane (though Sarane are a bit more respected since they are champions) as casually breeding two cute dogs together just to see what happens, but not taking genetics into effect. (Like, do either of them have a history of liver problems? Diabetes? Eye infection? Etc)
Riku also isn’t very much into gardening yet - although I do plan on having him fall in love with it once he gets started. Archmage as his goal, he knows he has to eventually learn about plants...but he doesn’t think he’s going to like it, so he puts it off.
Also, this isn’t saying they couldn’t meet. Haha! Just that there isn’t anything off the bat that I can see that would cause them to or be interesting if they did. We can figure something out some time if you’d like. —
As I said in the shout box, Riku and Aura would be interesting to meet since they both desire magic. Perhaps they can even go mining together some time. He’s in a shy stage right now, but I’m planning on having him almost surprisingly (to himself) blossom into a flirty one. Hahaha! So I can definitely see him getting overconfident with his newer social skills (eventually) and being like “Oh, so you’re trying to create a node, too? Well, I heard the crystals you’ll need for that are in the mines - and it just so happens I work there. Maybe I can show you around some time...and maybe even show you how I swing my pickaxe.” HAHAHA! Of course...he needs time to break out of his shell first. >.<
Also, I think it’d be really cool to have a weapon-making character. Sorta like Ren makes jewelry. Even if it was just IC, since that’s not a system currently.
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? Jack comes from a city far away, she lived on a plantation with her parents. Her mother was a witch, and when her father found out, he had her killed and Jack ran off to join the Navy. After that she heard of the Labs and came there to hunt for her own magic. In my mind, she's a much more confident and more attractive me, lol.
-What are your character's goals? To do absolutely everything she can.
-What are your goals for your character(s)? I'm not sure. Right now I want at least one of each node, so we'll see how it goes.
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? Not really, but whenever I think of Obsidion "Oh Brother" comes to mind
-What is your character currently doing? She is running the Training Guild, trying to figure out this whole job thing, meeting people, furthering her relationship with Renathan, and attempting to have some free time for herself.
-How close are you to your big goals? A couple of years away so far. I need at least 2 more years to get all the nodes I need for now.
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? Have her learn from her mother.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? Kro!
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? Still Kro
And the warden sang Come on somebody Why don't you run Ol' Red's itchin' to have a little fun Get my lantern Get my gun Red'll have you treed before the mornin' comes
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? Funnily enough, Aster was originally my Shijin. Shev and I did a human-forms RP in Misc, and his character sort of developed from there. Eventually I outgrew my original character, and thought it might be interesting to switch her with Aster, so now the Shijin has a remnant of her original personality, and Aster's my character now.
He's changed a lot since that first Misc RP. Back then he was a textbook rebel without a cause and I was just giving him random traits and quirks that Teen Me thought was cool. Now... Now I'm all too happy to give him reasons to be as uncomfortable and bitter as he is :'D
-What are your character's goals? If you boil it down, his basic goal is just to be left alone, out of a desire not to get hurt again. In practical terms though, Aster's approach to that is amassing power so that no one can overpower him again. A lot of the most unpleasant things that had happened to him stemmed from some form of lack of power (physical, monetary, societal), so in his mind, he needs to get to a place where no one can subjugate him. Mostly he's been doing this through training creatures, but lately he's been looking into augmenting his own abilities too through magic.
It's also not a... goal exactly, but he's slowly learning to enjoy all the little things that come with being financially stable and even well-off. Good food, buying small luxuries, making his home as comfortable as he can. All the things he couldn't have growing up on the streets.
-What are your goals for your character(s)? I've been sort of all over the place with him since I've had him so long. It'd be nice to get him some more nodes, especially wind/fire. It'd be nice to train up a little army too. But to be honest, at this point I really just want to write some meaningful plots with him, either with other people or alone... Though I suspect it'll probably be alone, mostly because his disposition isn't super conducive to meeting new people.
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? Unfortunately, no. I generally don't have a lot of characters that click with a song (I... listen to a fairly narrow range of music), and Aster isn't one of them.
-What is your character currently doing? Fighting in a tournament. Entering into a tenuous mining partnership with a Runic Gargoyle. Still just going about his daily life, more or less. OOC he just got a job as a beastmaster, but IC I've always roleplayed him as supporting himself with freelance training jobs, so it's probably not too much of a change from that.
-How close are you to your big goals? Regarding plots, not very. I have a lot of ideas but I haven't written much out yet plot-wise, and I've only put out a couple feelers re: RPing him with other people. He's also got one Wind node, which is better than nothing! And quite a few of his pets are trained, though there's room to build on that, and to train more. IC, he might not be satisfied until he has a herd of guard Thundergugs and an advance guard made up of every Sarane he owns.
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? Get him some therapy! Which I'm actually working on, funnily enough. Or write out his entire backstory, but I'm not great with long-term story projects like that orz
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? Toss-up between Avander (he's just fun to write) and Riven (who is a heavily modified version of a long-held favorite character of mine, and who technically 'belongs' more to Aster's TROD than to Aster himself).
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? Summer. She's been with him since the beginning (IC), and she's probably saved his life multiple times. She's incredibly important to him, and his homeland has some old stories/superstitions about firebirds and spirits.
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape?
Vixen has a loose back story, but short answer, she came from a small area where non-humans were very uncommon and ostracized, and she experienced a lot of prejudice for being Humanish. Her sister took care of her while her parents disdained her enormously. After her sister passed, she had no reason to stick around that area, and moved eastward to the labs. As far as mindscape, Vixen originally was just a generic, shy character with fox type ears / tail, which didn't last particularly long. I wanted something more unique and built her up from there; most of her development has been within the sight.
-What are your character's goals?
*Win a Sarane tournament *Branch out her familiarity with magic *Have a solid variety of well-trained creatures *Master the fine art of mounted archery *Master the art of healing - via botany, via magic, via training her creatures with such a skill *Have solid relationships- both friendships, and relationship (kind of a check mark on that one) *THAT HUGE AQUARIUM SHOW THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN, DAMN IT
-What are your goals for your character(s)?
Would love to have her go into the wild and tame beasts there, but I dunno if that's really still an option. I'm interested in noding her (but may just accumulate several; unsure), definitely getting her familiar, and SUPER interested in grafting, should that open up again. Also just want to see her cycle through some ups and downs socially because I'm an ass, and want to build more friendships with her. I'm tapping back into her addiction cycle I put her on before my break from the site, so in a more immediate sense, I want to put her through that growth of having addiction and breaking it. I have a lot planned for her interaction with my second character, Rhett, as well, a lot of little mini plot points and arcs.
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character?
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? Jinx grew up always on the move. She traveled with her family until she turned fifteen, and wanted to strike out on her own. They never really had a 'home,' and just wandered from village to town to village, trading goods (they were great at jewelry making, dress making, mixing salves and poisons, selling herbs and spices they gathered, etc). She found some traveling companions and saw quite a bit of the continent, before hardships fell upon them and she turned up at the Labs, penniless and with nothing to show.
-What are your character's goals? +Make a decent amount of coin so she can buy what she needs, and eventually leave the Labs. She never liked to stay in one place for too long.
+Regrow her Pearl Tat-lung, Selkie, and train her Equillion, Dune, to pull a wagon so they can get on their way.
-What are your goals for your character(s)? She was originally set up to be a victim of Ashe's on V3. A young girl coming to work for him, but she gets the backlash of his meddling in powerful magic, causing her to go a bit schitzo, seeing things and awakening her psychic abilities. I'd like to tap into her psychic abilities a bit on here, with items and pets, but it's more limited on V2.
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? Not at this time.
-What is your character currently doing? Exploring the Mansion, trying to level up to get skills, and running errands for Ashe.
-How close are you to your big goals? Not remotely, just started.
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? Give her her psychic powers so she could tell fortunes and become rich enough to travel in style.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? The mind melting Equilossle, or Maverick's daughter, Jezebel
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? Selkie, the tat lung.
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? Some know me as Everlyn, my first character. She was kind of a self-insert fursona more or less, and rather uninteresting. Didn't last much longer than the transfer from v1 to v2, I think.
Lethalia was made specifically for MML when I decided to revamp Ev, and grew surprisingly from there. When staring at a character creation screen, it suddenly dawned on me that I adored satyr characters and yet had none. Initially, she was meant as a challenge for writing. She's much more outgoing than I am, and mostly a whole lot sunnier of a person.
Her backstory developed over time, even if I always had a fuzzy idea of where she was from. There's a huge travelling trader's train of wagons referred to as 'The Grand Caravan' rather haughtily by it's leaders. Still though, where the Caravan stops, a faire will surely follow, for unusual and prosperous trade follows. The trade and transport of goods they offer is vital to some cities and villages. Lethalia's mother fled to the caravan for a safe place to have her; she later passed away when Lethalia was quite young. She grew up as a child of the 'village' of sorts, among the other children who lived on the Caravan. She got tired of being 'everybody's daughter' so to speak, and threw herself into learning the trades of the Caravan as soon as she could so that she could garner more independence. That was where respect would lie in the Caravan, the skill and mastery of a trade. This is where she learned most of her crafts - leather working and all that goes with it being her bread and butter. She would go on and learn how to hunt and survive in the wild while trapping furs for the Caravan, once she was an older teenager and allowed to go do more dangerous tasks. For a long time, she defined herself by her more ah Casanova-like adventures. There was someone to hold close in every city, as well as someone to leave behind. There were... a lot, and she began to define herself in her incapability of finding real love, or even someone who wanted to be with her for longer than the Caravan was in town.
-What are your character's goals? Train Vidarr even more when the tournament is over. Train Vidarr's daughters. She'd really like to continue working with sarane in general, since it's become one of her passion projects in the city; she'd been feeling a bit aimless before Vidarr. Perhaps she'll try and drum up some interest in a tournament even if the beasts don't want to breed.
The free-for-all tournament is going to spook her, seeing what's out there that's scarier than her most well trained pet! It's not something she's conceptualized yet, just how strong of monsters are out there. She's going to be wanting some more big boofa guardian pets soon.

-What are your goals for your character(s)? She's beginning to toy with the idea of making a node, but I'm not sure what will give her the push she needs to actually play with magic. She really doesn't care for it, after all. I have a few things in mind to give her a push in the right direction. The plan is one greater wind node, and a greater hollow.
Speaking of; I've got a big plot in mind, which I can start once I feel like I can 'afford' my second character (who's not going to be Saira this time!) and Stark, eventually! I'm very excited. This side character will, eventually, be swallowing an earth node!
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? I'm such a huge dweeb I have a playlist on her profile; of those, Coleman Hell - Run Wild and Years & Years - King are my favorites for her right now. King will make more sense as I get some of my plotting down in writing ~ (I wish I could give her any of my alt- or hard-rock songs, but she rebels against being defined by any of my other music. xD;; )
-What is your character currently doing? Lethalia is super-stressing over this tournament. She's not really 'made for' fighting creatures, but she does it anyway. It doesn't help that something big is looming over her, to be done once Vidarr is available to fly her somewhere after the tournament. It scares her more than she would ever admit, even if this should be something quite positive. Even though she's been settled for years, getting a real job has set something off. It just feels too good to be true - real house, real job, her own pets, security - what's going to give? I'm beginning to think she might suffer from imposter syndrome, in addition to her unaddressed anxiety.
-How close are you to your big goals? Sort of not even close? Train moar, get moar magic crystals, work on second character... I've got plenty to do, which is fine!
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? She needs to meet more people! I've gotten over the bulk of social anxiety, but playing with people is scary, man. If it were up to her, she would know every single one of her neighbors at home and in the kennel, as well as every competitor in any tournament. Like I said, I'm not nearly outgoing enough for her!
I also need to get back into playing her as upbeat as she's supposed to be; tourney training brings out the more 'srs bidness' in her, so doing other things should help.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? It might not look like it, but it's a dead tie between Vidarr and Mavelle. Stark and Estelle are super close runners up. My kennel is so smol I have a pretty big attachment to my pets. WHoops
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? Vidarr.

-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? About ten years ago (approximately,) I joined a Warriors site. For those who don't know, its a book series about cats who live in clans. I think I joined as 'Squirrelpaw' and eventually got a character named 'Gentleheart.' For ease, people eventually shortened it to Gentle. When I came across the HXR not long after, I joined as Gentle. I was probably around 12 when I joined, so she was basically based on myself with cat ears. Probably aged a bit more appropriately. As I struggled with my own mental health growing up, my character did too. Surprisingly, it wasn't a lot of fun constantly playing someone who was depressed and unmotivated. That's where Amelia was born. When we switched over to this site, I took the opportunity to play with something different. Instead of dealing with depression, I would create a character who was unnaturally happy. Often manic instead. I'm a nurse, so in my career I get to see a lot of different mental health conditions. Although I don't deal with mania or bipolar in my own personal life, I was interested in creating a character with these traits to not only help give me a better understanding of it, but to also get away from dealing with just a character who was severely depressed. I wanted to move away from myself further, so created a mammalian character. I think snow leopards are naturally just beautiful creatures, so wanted to create something I would enjoy visualizing in my writing. I used Gentle to grow as myself, and learn how to cope with my own traumas or issues. (Most of what I've role-played Gentle going through have been issues I have been through myself.) As I've matured into an adult and learned alternate coping mechanisms, I decided to enjoy my character more as a character and not as a projection of myself. Like most of the people here, I grew up as a 'weird' kid. This place has become a community for me, and most of you I've grown up with for the last decade. Amelia is a rather new idea, and I'm still fleshing her out. To distance myself from Gentle as much as possible, but still keep it understandable for me. I have Amelia not remembering any of her past. I couldn't figure out how to create a new character without changing any of my pets but leaving their relationships the same. So Amelia is a transformation from Gentle, as Gentle decided she was done with her depression and wanted a new life. This turned into my new character. I identify as a straight female and always have, so I stuck with a female character however Amelia doesn't do much in terms of sexuality. Gentle's path was mainly that she was the child of a human and humanish and was set up to marry young and be a simple housewife. Not wanting that life, she left and ventured to the labs. I spent about four or five years away from the site, so I had it be that Gentle had returned home. She almost fell into the same path before deciding it wasn't the life for him and leaving once more. Of course, Amelia does not remember any of her past from her transformation onwards, so it doesn't affect how I role-play her.
-What are your character's goals? I try to fathom waking up with no recollection of who I am, and still can't process it in my brain. So for Amelia, she's constantly struggling. She woke up one day with a simple journal (written by her/Gentle) to help guide her as she started her 'new life'. She has no idea where she came from or who she is. She is unsure how old she is, and any information not in her journal she doesn't know about. For Amelia, her biggest goal is discovering her past. As this isn't possible, her goals will eventually become how she can further herself and learn about who she currently is.
-What are your goals for your character(s)? My biggest goal for Amelia is to eventually become a tournament champion. I want her to go on a journey of some sort. Although the beyond is not a thing anymore, I hope the future of the site involves implementing a way to 'leave the labs' and explore elsewhere. I want this to be a journey of self discovery where Amelia learns more about what she is capable of doing and both her strengths and weaknesses. Another thing I'll be doing is getting her a Tat-lung. I'm still in the progress of fleshing out a good description. When I do however, it's going to be a creature that helps her discover more of who she is. In discovering who she is, I'm hoping she will pick up some hobbies and make friendships.
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? No. I always tried jumping on the train of having quotes or songs for characters or pets but nothing really worked for me. I'm not exactly a musical person.
-What is your character currently doing? In real life I'm crazy busy, so I don't get to enjoy Amelia as much as I can. She's entered her very first tournament (to her knowledge,) and she's discovering the intricacies and emotions with Sandy with battling. She's trying to grasp the Thundergug/Sarane crossbreeds she has, which has so far just included her following them around as they try to run away. She's working on training her Bwee, but it's tough as I don't have much experience with training elements. She hasn't gotten her Tat yet but I imagine that'll be something she'll do within the year. I'd love to get her more into a hobby (gardening/mining/mansion/jewelery stuff) but it hasn't quite fleshed out yet. She's not currently in any active role-plays with other characters.
-How close are you to your big goals? Depends on if I start working harder on them. With my current rate of progress, I'll have to say not very.
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? I want to flesh out a better personality for her that is further away from myself. I had so much fun roleplaying the last quest with her being in a manic phase. Actually roleplaying something that doesn't represent me in real life is really enjoyable. I'm hoping to do a little more than just tweak her mental health and move her more into an 'insane' character. I want to create a more wholesome character.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? Sandy without a doubt. I basically grew up with her. She was Gentle's first trained pet, and she's my character's best friend. She's a gentle and soft soul with a touch of the Thundergug stubbornness. I love roleplaying with her and just going deeper into her conversations with my character. I role-play her as human-level intelligence (yes I understand that shouldn't be a thing,) and she's sort of the friend you need who is the voice of reason and surprisingly always logical.
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? I'm still fleshing Amelia out, so she doesn't have much in terms of favourites yet. Sandy's her best friend, so she might pick Sandy for that reason. But perhaps I'll actually flesh out my pets and their personalities better and that will change.
-Where did your character come from, in game and from your mindscape? From my mindscape.... When I first started doing any sort of roleplay before mml, I had this notion of having red-brown haired elven character who was a forest archer. Basically an upgraded me outside the computer. When I migrated to Hxr the first time, she had green hair, being a foreign elf and not much work on her at all. She's grown some as a character, but I still view Ridelys similar to myself. In Game, Ridelys now goes by her birthname of her native lands, and has undergone some changes due to the labs' deep magical connections. No longer elven, she's taken on avian characteristics. Her homeland is somewhere north of Pethia, the land of Azarah on Enchase.
-What are your character's goals? Exact second? Avoid being blown to pieces by a draenix crossbreed while exploring the mansion. She's otherwise supposed to be on a spiritual journey of wisdom, and her living in Pethia has changed up her goals somewhat. She has a pact with Caiman to make him a dominant champion through battle, to be an authoritative figure in the eyes of her horde and a few others I can't come up with at 3am.
-What are your goals for your character(s)? My goals for Ridelys are multifold; I'd like to finish her becoming a master jewelsmith, for one. Perhaps dabble in magic, a fire or wind node. And somehow manage to train her creatures. All of them. Used to have some goals for Eterra. But I would like to have a fully trained mount, both on land and in the air. Has neither.
-Do you have any songs or other such things that you associate with your character? Not off hand.
-What is your character currently doing? Exploring the Eccentric's Mansion and running Caiman through the bloodbath that is the free for all tournament.
-How close are you to your big goals? I can't glimpse them on the horizon.
-If there was one thing you could do for your character, what would you do? I want her to split away from how I want to view myself; Ridelys needs to grow as a character, a person, away from her initial idea. Because presently the episodes of the draenix's explosive tendencies is bringing out her fears of what these creatures can do to you.
-What is YOUR favorite pet of yours? I love writing Caiman, and his banter. He's evolved over the years from a wild pit drake to a seasoned veteran looking to take his seat at the top; now that he's broken even on a bargain with Ridelys previously (for her to break a drake without a saddle/evenly) he's taken on a more guardianlike role, but still takes advantage of a constantly open ribbon link to look at her mind and comment off of it. Still won't take her on his back though, he considers it demeaning. Granted, now he's convinced she'll get herself killed if she tries.
-What is your Character's favorite pet of yours? Nimbus the izer is one of her oldest companions, having been one of three to accompany her to the labs in her backstory. She's very attached to her sarane group that are ribboned, but she doesn't have a specific favorite. Things with feathers or wings are her specialty. Somehow.
