Good news, folks! Everyone has turned in at least one character sheet, which means we should be ready to get started, hopefully this Saturday, next Saturday at the latest. But before then, to make it easier on all of us, I'd like to encourage everyone to post their character descriptions. Physical appearance in and out of costume, any regular alternate forms (I'm looking at you, Firemind), basic voice description (and normal tone), any general impressions from body language, that sort of thing. Think of these as analogous to @descs on a MUSH, but as far as that goes, I would like to add a couple of reminders. You know the sorts of things people tend to say about fanfics where the first several PARAGRAPHS are spent describing the main OC? For that matter, I'm sure all of you have had personal experiences on MUSHes running into people who use their @descs to show off how polysyllabic their vocabulary is, and mostly succeed to actually obscure their appearance through their language, rather than paint any kind of an effective picture. No, no points will be given off for length, and if you need to take a while to properly describe things, that's fine. Really, you lot tend to be pretty good writers, so I don't figure I have much to worry about from you, but I figured I'd throw that out.

Anyway, thanks in advance, and I'm looking forward to getting started!

Edit: Oh, some of you guys may find this site useful (I can't get it to work, but I've got the 'at home' version): http://www.ugo.com/channels/comics/heroMachine2/heromachine2.asp

Feel free to posts pictures created with this if they can help us visualize the character, although I'd still like at least a short description to cover civilian identities, voices, that sort of thing.

Keyword:Electric Slide
Darcy Windall/Firemind

Civilian identity: As a human, she has red hair in cornrows, verdant eyes, ruddy skin, stabby nails, and a problem with dry, flaky skin. She uses lotion a lot. While tall, Darcy looks younger than she is. She's also pretty flat-chested. Her wardrobe is electric, ranging from grungy track sweats to pleated skirts to khaki dig clothes. Darcy has coruscating emerald eyes.

Super Hero Looks: Aside from the sketch that I did, Firemind can be described as looking something like she's wearing a red lame swimsuit with diaphanous orange flame details as accents and a sort of skirt. She has red fingerless gloves and leather boots with the same trim. Her cape, attached to a pair of gold shoulder-pads, is of the same material and flickers like flame. A gold chain hangs from shoulder-pad to should pad, her symbol hanging from the chain. Her symbol, a brain on fire, also marks her boot buckles, belt buckles, and shoulder pads. She wears a crested red draconic helm with gazelle-like horns and a red visor and gold teeth. A gold belt slashes diagonally from shoulder to hip, supporting her rifle. Around her waist is another gold belt, thirds one supporting a pair of Desert Eagles. It is worthwhile to note that she usually only has one gunbelt with her at a time.

As a dragon, she is still wearing a costume. It mostly looks like the same costume she wears as a human, only tailored for a dragon. It is, however, missing the cape. That would interfere with the wings! She is a fairly stock-looking fantasy dragon, proportioned out something like Rathi Dragon: bat-wings, saurian head, scales, long neck, whippy tail, and claws. She does, however, have opposable thumbs. Her eyes are that same valuable green, and her swept-back, gazelle-like horns have a pair of gold hoops pierced through the middle. Firemind is a red dragon, suitable for burninating the countryside.

Voice: Firemind's voice tends to be rather dry, like bleached parchment, and sibilant. When she is angry, she gets snarly and growly. As a dragon, her voice lowers about an octave, although it's still recognisably her, to people who know her well.

Moses Fette/Electric Slide

Civilian identity: He's a slender fellow of average height and a wiry build. Grey-eyed and grey-haired, he doesn't look quite as old as his hair would suggest. He's rather nondescript, really. It's hard to place his age or face. Moses blends in easily in crowds. His fashion sense tends to be pretty bad, which makes it good that he goes for nondescript outfits.

Super Hero Looks: Electric Slide has a black and tan costume. [Insert Guinness joke here.] Overall, he's covered with black spandex. His gloves, belt, and boots are tan. His chest bears the blazon of 'don't stick forks in electrical sockets'. He wears a Lone Ranger-style mask over his silver eyes, and a fedora covers most of his silver hair. And boy, are his eyes and hair silver. Did his mother feed him tinsel or something?

Voice: Electric Slide's voice is fairly tinny, and he seems to have a faint sort of accent, although what accent that would be is unidentifiable.

I'll add Dave when I finalize his character sheet.

Keith Tarrant/Cinder

Civilian: Keith is a Caucausian male of average height with short brown hair and blue eyes. His hair gets mussed easily, so he carries a comb with him to fix it. He's moderately attractive, but nothing to write home about. He tends to wear polo shirts of various colors and patterns with either jeans or khaki pants, depending on where he plans to go that day. For out and about, he prefers the jeans.



Voice: Keith has a slight Georgian drawl. His voice is light, rather than deep.
