    Roxy Xalider

    Name: Roxanne “Roxy” Xalider

    Age: 13

    Gender: Female

    Appearance: Roxy is exactly 5 feet tall with a petite, bony body, but her pretty facial features make up for that. Has shoulder-length curly black hair and icy blue eyes that seem to look right through you. Has a fair complexion, with a sprinkle of freckles across her nose and full lips that give her a pouty look when she’s frustrated or sad. Her current outfit consists of her school uniform: a starched white puffy sleeve shirt, dark blue sweater vest with her school crest, gray skirt with a blue plaid pattern. Black t-strap shoes complete her look; and her black socks pulled up to her knees make her appear even shorter.

    Brief Character History: To her family, Roxy has always been quite odd. When not at school, she chose to run away with her best friends--books. Every story she read she wished could be her own. The thought of living in a different world, with a different life seemed nice to her. No magic, no annoying family, no dark secrets; just a place where she could be herself, and be free to do the amazing things of fiction. Things like relaxing on the beach with mermaids, flying spaceships, solving mysteries, riding with cowboys, talking to animals, coursing the ocean with pirates, meeting aliens from outer space, and hanging with superheroes to save the world! On her 13th Birthday, Roxy was deemed a “full witch” by her parents and was forced away from her books to begin learning spells instead. Now, a few months later, Roxy had never guessed she would have to use that boring stuff called knowledge.

    Personality: Roxy is a small girl, with a big imagination. She’s shy, quiet, fragile, and sensitive, but secretly has a heart for action and adventure. Can be extremely moody and dramatic at times, changing her emotions in an instant. She could be bouncing with excitement and the next minute crying her eyes out. She’s still naive and learning, yet can be a quick thinker when she needs to be.

    Powers: As Roxy grew up she tried to ignore magic altogether, with it being the one thing that separated her from having a normal life. But, with living in a home full of witches and being one too, made that hard to achieve. When she turned 13, she disliked all of the old-fashioned spells her relatives were forcing her learn, so she began to create her own, in her own words. Her passion for reading helped her in this ability. Though, Roxy is limited at what she can do and not at her full potential. She sometimes gives off magic in haste or thinks irrationality.

    Equipment and/or Weapons: No weapons besides small things she can create with magic, but she is carrying her pink school backpack with a few schoolbooks, homework, leftover lunch money, and other basic necessities.

    Template for Character

    Name: Tina Sharp

    Age:23

    Gender:Female

    Appearance: Tina stands at 5ft 6inch. She has shoulder length black hair with a korean heritage causing her eyes to be slanted and her skin perpetually tan. She is wearing a blue t-shirt and jeans.

    Brief Character History: Tina lived in a foster home till the age of 18 and has thus learned how to fend for herself. She has 4 close friends with whom she has many adventures. Traveling through portals is no new thing for her. Most of her adventures happen in other worlds or dimensions.

    Story Genre: Tina comes from a world much like modern day earth with the possbility of a portal, leading to a entirely different world/dimension, waiting around the corner.

    Personality: Tina is more tom-boy then girly-girl. She shuns makeup and heels, and beats up bullies with a bare fist. Though she may act tough and seemingly un-sympathetic to anyone, she actually has a very protective, caring side. She tends to hide it though as she feels it would show weakness on her part.

    Powers (if any): Due to an exposure of her first villian's bio-weapon, Tina has developed the ability to generate electricity and shoot it out of her hands. Her friends tease that she is a jedi with lightning powers.
    If she get electricuted (i.e. by a taser or exposed power line) her powers will be greatly enhanced for a short period of time. People tend to get shocked if they touch her skin.

    Equipment and/or Weapons (if any): Tina carries with her a swiss army knife. She knows how to weild the blade but prefers to take down an enemy through her martial arts skills. She has killed before but only the defense of others and herself.

    Miscellaneous info: Any person to harm her friends or make her mad in some way is in for a world of hurt. She is reasonable to a point but push her buttons to many times and you might find yourself with a broken rib or two.

    And the story begins. Of course, I'll reveal more details of what happened to Roxy's family as the time comes. For now, you will have to guess a long with your characters. :D

    Oops, I probably should've made it clearer that Roxy broke into the library. It's closed for the day, so there aren't any librarians or people inside. She did keep the doors wide open though. Sorry about that!

    You all are AMAZING! Love it so far! I'll have Roxy's reply and thoughts up tomorrow. My brain is useless at the moment from spending a whole day with little kids. ;)

    Jaye Audolf

    Name: Jaye Audolf (Audolf meaning wolf’s friend)
    Age: 24
    Gender: Female
    Appearance: Average height, long brown hair worn in a braid, one blue eye one green eye and well toned. She wears khaki pants, basic lase up shoes, and a black crop top and a green jacket, which she never buttons up.
    Brief Character History: Jaye was raised by her Ranger father who taught her in the Ranger ways. She was planning to join them when she reached the age of acceptance, 25. Her family is known for their kinship with wolves thus their last name. Her father had one and it gave birth to a pup which became hers.
    Story Genre: Comes from a fantasy world in the medieval time era where some people have strong bonds with animals. (I envision it to be simular, in style only, to the world of middle earth.)
    Personality: Adventures, sharp minded and has a sense of humor.
    Powers (if any): She has heightened sense of sight, smell and sound, similar to that of a wolf, and because of these has become a very affective archer.
    Equipment and/or Weapons (if any): Bow and arrows and a small hidden blade on her belt.
    Miscellaneous info: She has a male wolf called Llop. He is almost all black and has the same eyes as Jaye. He is still young which does leave him slightly unpredictable.

    Hehe. I'm about as excited as Roxy! I love how this concept has made me think about readers and their fav books so differently. I may never think of it the same way again. :D
