I figured we should have a thread where we can share characters and everything and we can discuss the children we have created

I'll start here's Annabelle and she is MOST TRAGIC. (Most my characters aren't terribly tragic) She's a mostly Mass Effect character

Name: Dr. Annabelle Lynch
Age: 26
Role: Therapist/Counselor (Specializes in issues unique to the military)

Personality: A very calm presence, she has seen the worst that humanity has to offer and has come out the other end mostly unscathed. She isn't easily scared outside of her few triggers (aggressive flirting from men specifically) and handles every tense situation with a calm grace. She suffers from PTSD, in the form of the aforementioned trigger, regular nightmares, and a seeming detachment to reality when faced with horrors that would bother most people but she has it handled and looks after herself. She's very dependable and doesn't tend to turn to others with any of her problems. On the flip side she's very honest with her past her own struggles, she just doesn't emotionally depend on anyone but herself. Is seemingly promiscuous and 'puts out' easily but she truthfully doesn't believe anyone would stick around as she has regularly lost, been abandoned, or been betrayed by people her whole life. So she treats dating and sex as a methodical why to 'scratch an itch' and nothing more. She's a little self-conscious about her eye, as the scarring around it is hidden by a graft and when she takes her eye out (which is a must every night since it's a old model and needs to be regularly cleaned) the sight is grisly at best.

Bio: The daughter of a nurse and a soldier, her mother died giving birth to her. So her father raised both her and her older brother Kyle on Mars, where he was stationed. She had a very strong bond with her father and brother and helped look after them both. Her brother left home to pursue his career in writing almost immediately after he graduated. Anna was 14, her brother 17. Only months after he left their father was killed in action and, having no other family, the now 15 year old girl was placed in her 18 year old brother's custody.

Things were fine, for a time. Kyle joined the military himself to give them a stable life until she could join the workforce. But the job took it's toll on top of the grief. He started drinking, started berating and abusing Anna. He became further and further obsessed with 'keeping' her. The abuse continued to escalate from pure violence to sexual abuse.

Anna knew full well she had to get out, so she applied for colleges under his nose. And once she graduated she tried to sneak out while he was gone. He came home early and attacked her, in his psychotic break he tried to blind her taking a knife to her eye. He managed to carve out one, luckily not killing her in the process. She managed to scramble away by kicking him between the legs and she went to the authorities. The incident was on the news for some time as the new big tragedy.

From there she recovered, her insurance only covering the eyepatch and healing process. So she went to college, into psychology, with an eyepatch to cover it up. Her first gift to herself upon surviving her first year in college was a cybernetic eye. In her second year she got a upgrade to the eye that lets it act like a omni-tool, being young and foolish and doing that instead of getting a more updated eye itself.

She graduated quickly and now works specifically with soldiers and their family to deal with their various issues. Sometimes she gets recognized from the news but fortunately has managed to keep her head down enough to avoid attention.

Name
Mizuki Uchiha

Appearance Notes
Black hair, pale skin (like most Uchiha), very tall compared to other girls her age and stays that way outfit tends to have a lavender/purple scheme with black trimmings, has a boyish/masculine 'aura' to her despite the shapely body with blue eyes.

Special Skills
Incredibly fast, even more so when she uses her family jutsu (will explain more later) and seems to have a natural presence that puts people at ease. Can readily use her charming nature to her advantage in a pinch.

Personality
She grew up as a incredibly shy and quiet girl, keeping to herself and most of all avoiding the hell out of Sakura. Starts to grow confident as she goes on more missions and meets people outside the village. Said confidence shooting through the roof when she got a kiss from a girl in another village. Growing a bit of a swagger better fitting the Uchiha name, she's never arrogant...just confident. Still she never puts down those around her and is constantly looking to make those around her happy. Quick to leap to someone's assistance she puts herself secondary to everyone's needs. Due to all of this and her natural charm she makes friends easily no matter where she is.

Past
Neglectful father and ill mother, Mizuki didn't have a happy childhood outside the times she spent with her two cousins, Itachi and Sasuke. Her father was downright abusive in a lot of cases towards her mother and basically ignored his daughter's existence. When Mizuki's mother died at age 6, she ran before he could turn his abusive nature toward her. Fortunately she ran right into the protective arms of Yuki and Kitomi, at the time just two women who lived together on the edge of the cillege....apparently Yuki was her aunt by blood on her mother's side. Yuki, in a attempt to draw Mizuki's mother away, lived close to look after things but couldn't get close to the compound in any way due to Mizuki's father's influence.

From there she grew up as any other child would, she was barely fazed when Itachi killed every other Uchiha alive (aside from Sasuke and herself) because they didn't protect her or her mother. It didn't bother her. But that event also triggered the growth of a rift between herself and her cousin, due to their differing feelings on the matter. A rift grown even larger as Mizuki's feelings for Sakura grew.

She was trained not as a Uchiha...but as a Katsuya, her mother's bloodline. And by the time she graduates, she's an Uchiha only in name, sheer talent, and mild mannerisms.

Clan
Aside from her obvious link to the Uchiha's, her 'true' clan is the Katsuya's. Not terribly large and no one quite knows where they're from, they specialize in transformation techniques. Changing their own body to take on the traits and form of animals. Claws, fangs, ears, heightened senses. They have one animal they shift to. Just one that they feel the strongest bond with. And the animal form they take is much larger than what would be normal. About three times the size, with much more power than the average animal as well.

Mizuki's specific animal is the wolf, she feels the most connection with creatures who put the pack above all else. As someone who craves a 'pack' of her own. People she can depend on and turn to have been few and far between.

The 'picking' of the animal is less a conscious decision and more due to a ritual done by two members of the Katsuya clan. Both the older and the younger use their chakra and a special kind of metal to create a totem from the metal in the shape of the animal that would truly be the younger's 'spirit'. The older focuses on the physical shaping, the younger pours their chakra in to give the metal a specific form.

There is little downside to the jutsus, and having traits of one's animal feels more 'like themselves' than as a 'normal human' so they often spend their time at home wandering with ears and tails hanging out freely. The biggest downside is extended use of the jutsu leaves them with constantly heightened senses, so loud noises and strong smells are extremely difficult on them.

Another downside is that it can take a severe toll on one's mental state. People can slowly start to believe they are animals. It takes a lot of work to keep one's humanity and depending on a case to case basis either the person is killed off, or they're set free to roam happily as a wild animal.
