Okay, starting again with introducing characters. Please, gimmeh feedback.
If you honestly think they‘re fine as they are, tell me. If you think I‘ve dumped a bit much on them, tell me.


And since the Twilightemie I‘ve learnt a new term: Mary Sue, and I‘m afraid there‘s some serious Mary Sueness going on here. So I need to know how others perceive them. If you have suggestions of any kind, please, feel free to share them. I might think: „Oh god, that‘s totally so out of character!“, but it still might give me new directions to explore.


So I just will give myself a kick and reveal everything important to you. Bear in mind that most characters were created by a child and grew over the years.




Georgy Drachenkoeter
Alias: Mara (last name changes often…)
Nickname: Jo (Georgy‘s kinda strange as a name for girls)
Kind: Demon (controls water and fire)
Appearance:
- asymmetrical clothes
- long mane of red hair with green highlights, but I think I really am going to cut that for good, they‘re only slightly over shoulder length now
- long fluffy tail and ears
- those strange blue things
Occupation: Bounty Hunter
Random Facts:
She started out as a mash up of a Wedding Peach demon [AN: *has-decency-to-blush*] and a saiyajin from Dragon Ball [AN: Not gonna blush, DB‘s still teh kewlz]. To start with she had normal ears and an ape's tail. But after some years I got rid of her original roots and didn‘t see the point in keeping the ape‘s tail if she was a propper demon. So I changed the tail and ears into something more fitting her name (Dragonmutt)

I know the name is strange, but let me digress a bit. Years back me and my parents used to occasionally frolic around on the bed, tickling and teaming up against each other and all that. I used to screech a lot during those fights… Anyways, on one of those occasions I wanted to say: „I am George, the dragon slayer (Drachentöter)“. But instead I said: „I am George, the Drachenkö…“ thus creating a Drachenköter (dragonmutt).

I like dogs and I like dragons, so I adopted it as a pseudonym. (That means, if you ever come across a Georgy Drachenköter or something resembling this name, it‘s either me, or a impersonator. If it‘s the latter, throw sticks at them.) First there was only the actual George, the dragondog. She‘s looking like an anorexic dog with scales instead of fur and a very long tail, I eventually added wings, too. Did I mention before I‘m almost obsessed with those? When I re-designed Georgy I almost gave her some, too. But since she already had a tail and ears, and Perr has wings, I decided against it. Anyways, let‘s get on with the creation of Jo.

I had adopted Georgy Drachenköter as a name for me and then I got into Anime and Manga. And as is quite usual in this fandom -or so I think- we created lots of new characters, among them us. I was Sailor Sirius (of course, the star that‘s connected to the Dog Star, main star in the Canis Major constellation, what else could I chose?). Her ,normal‘ name wasn‘t Georgy Drachenköter (Hauke Something. Hooray for Storm‘s Schimmelreiter) yet, but she had long red hair with green highlights. I think my Pokémon character (long red hair, green highlights) was the first to be called Georgy Drachenköter(but I‘m not too sure). And finally, whyever, I combined Wedding Peach with Dragon Ball. She was Vegeta‘s half sister.

At some point I realised I should give her really own origins, although… dunno… the mother kind of stays, but that‘s not this important… Mhm, I just realise I need to do some thinking about her roots and certain events in her childhood… Anyways, she‘s an orphan, an older demon friend who was like a sister raised her. And that‘s where we enter the realms of shadyness again…

I started out having some kind of über boss Endgegner enemy asshole thing. Another thing I came up with -and what I still hang on to, important for Captus est, too, since Matthew is some kind of demon there- is the fact that demons can‘t break a promise given. They‘d die in horrible pain. I think humans could suffer the same fate if they‘d beak a promise given to a demon.

Sooooo, this bad demon kinda gets sister demon to serve him and orders her to kill Jo. Doesn‘t want to but hey, painful death or killing sisterly friend? In the end she makes Jo kill her and Jo has a pwetty sword from now on (expect post about Swords coming some time hopefully soon) and traumatic event in past.

I have to seriously re-think that, now that I write it down years after thinking about it the last time it all sounds kinda… silly? Is it even needed? But how to get that sword else? And wouldn‘t it change a lot about the character?

Anyways, due to that traumatic event she grows up really fast. You know like people getting grey hair from one day to the other because of a shock? That. Only with growing up. (okay, I really get rid of that… New c.v. for you, Jo.) Anyways, sometimes she goes back to her actual age (mentally), when encountered with something that reminds her too much of what had happened. Then she won‘t remember anything that happened in her ,grown up‘ state.

What else? The sword, but I guess that deserves it‘s own post.

There‘s more to tell you about her… mhmm
She controls the water (oh the possibilities, read Ce Fragments: Jo and Matthew for a hint of that) and -theoretically- fire. It‘s like primary and secondary element. And can you see the problem there if fire is secondary? Rrrrrright. It get‘s quenched. But at least it keeps her from freezing to death. :P Oh, and major weakness of hers is: Dun Dun Duuun Electricity. Damn… that‘s Pokémon coming through again, isn‘t it? :O

Then there are those strange blue things that I just fail to describe in words. They are some kind of sense organs. Originally, I added them for teh k00lz (inspired by one of my fav Pokémons and no, I won't blush about that :P Houndoom is just too awesome), but well, I grew to like them, so I had to come up with a reason to justify their existence… Even if I relocate them more or less with every picture I scribble… So yes, sense organs, for sixth sense stuff, you know? Or feeling if something supernatural is around. *nods* And they're quite a physical weak point. Being really sensitive, any touch could hurt quite a lot. Yu's(more about him in a later post) the only one allowed to actually touch them.

She goes by the name Mara if she's 'undercover'. I forgot the last name, but than, that one changes every time. Mara only stays because of nostalgia, she met Yu under this name after all.
And yes, she's aware that this is not too smart a move if you want to not be recognised, especially if you've got a rather unique hairdo, too.

Like most of the demons she can camouflage herself and jump.
That means take on the appearance of an ordinary human (no tail, no fluffy ears, no strange blue bumps) and jumping means that you can cross from this, human, dimension to the demonic dimension. Methinks more thought has to be spend on this issue again.

Soo, what else? I‘m pretty done so far…
Bounty hunter, and quite good at that, strange sense of clothing, attracts chaos. Part of a pact.
Should I say something about that or wait until the entry for Yu?
Well, since I‘m at spilling beans, I can talk about that, too. Some of you read Ce, so well… this might seem somewhat familiar to you, well in fact, Jo herself should be slightly familiar to you. :P. The pact between her and Yu is somewhat similar to Matt‘s and Dom‘s, just not that onesided. One could say I ripped Jo and Yu off. :P Anyways, they both own the other.

I have to say it was an accident, though. You know, this „I want you“ - line? I took that and from that the pact came into being.
Y: I want you.
J: Oh, and what would I get in return?
Y: Me. (or something to that effect)
J: Okay.
Yes, kids, be careful with what you say straight before having sex for the first time, you could end up in a pact when you wake up the next morning. And I really wanna write that scene… I think I have a file for it already, too.



I won't re-read it now, or I'll back out again. *clicks-Post*

I really think the character setting is interesting.
You're very good at creating fantasy worlds. I wish I could tell you more, but I don't have any suggestion at this moment. It's well-created.

I like Jo, she seems like a kick-ass-and-take-names-later kind of girl, and I love the idea of her and this "Yu" character owning each other (especially since you make it seem almost like an accident :p) I will officially be awaiting the next update on this ;)

you should totally keep the thing with the sisterly demon. even more so, if it's really made her into what she is today, what i think. great introduction. would love to hear more about her.

you have no idea what i made my main character go through and she only was found by her mate when she was over twenty and had been tortured for about three years. started piling crap on her when she was eight and really started at thirteen/fourteen.

yeah, sometimes i pity her. ... and then i add new crap to the pile.

yeah, sorry. i had the idea for knights of cydonia. noone's goona take me alive and all that. dunno where it came from, but when we drove off the motorway listening to knights it just was there. i just hope you don't like my chemical romance, because some of their fans are those doing this. because of that interview they gave in 2007 where matt disses mcr fans.

i guess there are always fanatics and people that belong in a mental facility. and if they're not completely human on top of that... poor matt.
