Okay, as I always do with these; keyboardsmash. For Sarah: 5, 17, 26, 52. For Chip: 1, 16, 34, 48

Sarah Black

5) How old is your OC?
29.

17) How long can your OC hold their breath
I’d say about 40 seconds, maybe less.

26) Is your OC a human or an animal? (or something else idk)
She’s completely human, and non-magical.

52) How does your OC feel about insects?
She doesn’t like them, but doesn’t hate them. She only hates them if they’re dangerous or if they get into her food, and doesn’t mind stomping a few.

Chip Harken

1) What’s your OCs favorite color?
Green.

16) When is your OCs favorite time of year?
Summer. It’s when there is more fresh fruit and nuts for sale, and he usually feels more energized during the season.

34) Is your OC religious?
Not very, though he does believe in luck, he’s not affiliated with any official religions.

48) What social class is your OC from?
He’s part squirrel, but also part of a mob family, so lower upper class, though now it’s more like lower middle class since most of the family got arrested.

Danity 12.2531

Since there is no #12.2531, I’ll do 12, 25, & 31 for main universe!Danity & The Red!Danity.

12) Is your OC sexually active?
MU: Very much so, though she’s going through a bit of a dry spell.
TR: Yup.

25) What time of year does your OC prefer?
MU & TR: Fall. It’s at time when the scenery is at its most vibrant and it gives you the most accessorizing options of all the seasons.

31) Does your OC believe in fairies?
MU & TR: Of course she does, she’s swatted a few away.

Redesigning Sarah and Marius

So far, Marius still has bright orange hair, only now he looks more Indian. Sarah has long pants that tuck into her boots, but Idk what to do about her top. Right now she has a sheer green long sleeve shirt over her green sports bra. It’s lightweight and shows off her 6-pack, but I’m not sure if I want to keep it that way. Opinions?

(Here’s a really old Sarah ref, please ignore her face, it’s so terrible. Her face looks better here)

OMG

I’m watching this murder-mystery game show called Whodoneit? for the first time, and there’s a creepy butler in the mansion named Giles.

IN MY MAIN STORY, I HAVE A BUTLER NAMED GILES.

Only he’s a cool guy and not too creepy, and Giles is his last name, but still, GILES BUTLER.

For this question meme

Since you didn’t specify anyone, I’ll go with Danity Rae (main canon).

7: Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
She enjoys reading and shopping, though prefers to be productive, running the university, training her protege, or practicing her magic.
8: Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging
She has a taste for decadence, and feels that if one has the means to indulge, as long as one is responsible with it, then it should be encouraged, provided one is “worthy” of luxury. Gorgeous gowns and jewelery, magic’d items that beautiful as well as functional, and she throws a biannual ball at her manor.
★★★★★★★★★★★★ Chip skylark

Chip Skylark isn’t one of my characters, but since I know you mean Chip Harkin, and you’re just being a butt, I’ll give you half of what you want.

  1. Current leader of the Squirrel Mafia, and he is part squirrel himself (has a large fluffy tail and squirrel ears).
  2. He’s adept at climbing things and running. He’s shorter than most,even for a squirrel-person, so while he’s often tormented for this, nature has given him the ability to hid in more places than the majority of his enemies.
  3. His best friend is a bat-woman who is currently dating his ex-girlfriend, a kleptomaniac fox-woman named Rose who he is still friends with.
  4. He doesn’t care much for humans, especially magic wielders, but this is mostly due to racism he and his family have faced.
  5. It takes him a solid 10 minutes in the morning to get his tail to look neat, and 3 hours later, it’s bushy again. If he didn’t twitch as much as he does, it would stay neat, but nooooo.
  6. His current mission is to catch Marius alive and bring him to the authorities, which is difficult, as he doesn’t have magic, and the majority of those left in the mob are fairly incompetent. Really, he just wants to free his family and go back to being a carriage insurance broker.
★★★★★ Alex
  1. He’s the son of Sharaten (Sarah Black) and Connor Carmichael, and is currently 9 years old, though his father died when he was 5, and his mother went on a search for his soul a few months later that year.
  2. The poor kid has abandonment issues do to all of this, compounded by the fact that his childhood home burned down, taking nearly everything he owned with it.
  3. He tends to get into a lot of fights with Lita, mostly because the two egg each other on about her not being skilled at magic and him being unable to use it period, eventually getting nasty and throwing “your mom left you” and “your brother’s a crazy killer” insults, and sometimes rocks.
  4. He takes after his mother, wanting to protect younger kids who are bullied, and enjoys most sports.
  5. While he does want his dad to be able to live again, he doesn’t hold out hope, and just wants his mom to come back alive and unharmed.

I don’t know if this is an example of kindness or cruelty.

Here’s 26 facts!

Lita is a witch (half mage, half witch/wizard [I haven’t decided which parent wasn’t a full mage]) (1). She’s worse than most her age at wielding magic, which isn’t helped by her being the half-sister of Marius, who was a child prodigy (2).

Adalaide “Ada” Abramelin had a horrible relationship with her now deceased father, who hated her for being the illegitimate daughter of his wife and a nomagi (non magic wielding person)(3).

Lucian and Isla MacArthur are insanely wealthy mages who are brother and sister (4). The two work primarily with magic, but do not completely reject the idea of using scientific study to further their work. Lucian’s favorite creations are his glass spiders: enchanted glass spiders that can walk, as well as draw and store blood (5). Isla’s favorite  creation are her rose tinted contacts: contact lenses (also in glasses) show you either an incredibly pleasant or desired form of what your eyes are seeing, but can also show the exact opposite, which can be very useful in an interrogation (6).

Quincy is a soul contained in the body of a doll (7). She can move all of her limbs that have joints (including a 360o turn of the head), but if something is cut off, she can no longer move it unless it’s somehow repaired (either with glue or fixing the ball joint), though her movement is then limited (8). Lucian, Isla, and Liam MacArthur are responsible for her creation (9).

Liam MacArthur is the youngest of the MacArthur siblings, and due to a mishap, found the soul used for the doll experiment that resulted in Quincy being “born” (10).

Sarah Black’s real name is Sharaten Carmichael (11) and her favorite colors are pink, green, and brown, in that order (12). More importantly, she goes from town to town on a (probably futile) quest to recover her dead husband’s soul, switching between 4 aliases and taking odd jobs for money, food, and shelter (13). She’s also the main character in my as of yet nameless story, which is in my main universe (all of these other characters are in this world as well) (14).

Marius is my main male character, a child prodigy mage, currently 23, and on the run from murder charges (15). He doesn’t have many wilderness survival skills, so the fact that he’s been in hiding for 3 months and is still alive is nothing short of a miracle (16). He’s a snarky bastard with an inflated ego, but Sarah helps him stay grounded being something of a surrogate big sister to him, as she’s known him his entire life (17).

Mirna is a mage and owns a successful shop in Renier City, a waterfront metropolitan city, selling magic’d objects, primarily charms (18). She’s a workaholic, rarely having time to relax with her friends, but has semi-adopted a feral cat who catches mice around her shop (19). She is a year older than Sarah, the two grew up together, and she’s given Sarah 5% off on everything she buys in her shop (old-times-sake discount, she calls it) (20).

Belinda “Bell” Abramelin is Ada’s 19 year old half sister who has a genetic disorder that causes her only gain nourishment by eating souls, causing her to be sickly due to malnourishment and anorexia nervosa (21). Because of this, it is illegal for her to be alive, and she has only left her house once in her life (22). She has a large vocabulary and speaks formally, as her only companions have been her sister, her butler/tutor/father figure, and the limited house staff (23).

Corbin Varis Giles is a crow-man in his mid-50s and Ada and Bell’s butler, as well as Belinda’s tutor (24). He has been a father figure to the two, though moreso to Bell, and loves science, literature, and shiny things (25).

Celia died a few hundred years before the story takes place, but is notorious for leading a campaign against the first mages which focused on “removing” mage children and infants from the equation, all while being blind (26).

★ ★

Belinda Abramelin enjoys astronomy, drawing with ink (because charcoal dust makes her wheeze if she works with it for very long), math, and reading escapist literature.

Corbin Varis Giles has been a butler to the Abramelin family for almost 20 years, as well as a father figure to Belinda since she was born.

★ ★ ★

Quincy enjoys playing piano, and is slowly getting better at it. She tried the violin, but since her hands are made of wood, she could never get the strings to make the proper sound.

Marius’ favorite food is cheese on lightly toasted bread, though he prefers sharp white cheeses.

Lita doesn’t believe that her half brother, Marius, killed Danity Rae, headmistress of Nafsitau University and Ambassador.

Oh look, I’m redesigning Sarah again!

Yeah, I’m working on her facial structure more, and while it is always subject to change, I’m working on a more realistic style as of late. This time I tried drawing her with and without hair just to test the head shape and prove that she has ears. There are a few features which she continues to posses: pronounced cheekbones, bag/wrinkles under her eyes, and a smallish mouth. I’ve begun looking at head shapes and have been discovering how jawlines work, so hopefully I can work at that and make her design (and my other characters’) seem more natural.

I also got the odd urge to look back at my progress with her face. While I wish I would have improved more in the past year, I know I haven’t been working on my drawing as much, ergo the lack of substantial improvement. What I am elated to see is how far I’ve grown since she was created (dear shit, that original scares me).

To see more on Sharaten (as well as inspirations for her design) check out my Sarah Black tag.

Sarah Black redesign sketch!
So, I’m going to have to touch this up A LOT in photoshop, but for now, I have this.
She has a bag that can hook in many places for mobility, and anything that can fit in the opening can fit in the bag (because Mirna’s shop is the best shop ever). She also has long pants now, because shorts aren’t practical for wilderness survival. She still has the sports bra under the sheer top, but since the top is magical armor, it’s a nice breathable material, and it protects her in a way so that she can show off her arms and abs. Her sports bra has changed a bit, in that it has a crease to that it doesn’t give a uniboob effect, and her shoes do have both laces, I just didn’t draw the other one in. Other than that, she’s pretty much the same, just a bit more muscular.

BROVEMBER STUFF!

Thought I’d actually have my 2 bros. These are Liam, Lucian, and Lucian’s glass spider.
