Yes....all are important in some way to EtBS AND the sequel, Decent into Darkness. YES. NOW YOU GET TO KNOW WHAT THE SEQUEL IS CALLED.
EtBS Charisma Personalities:
Windy- Windy is a big mushy bag of mixed emotions. He can be very anxious about the future at times, and worries about things that he shouldn't be worried about. He never tells anybody else though, because as the leader of the EtBS clan, he doesn't want to worry them. He usually heeps his most sensitive thoughts to himself, except when he's with Vinia. She knows him like a book. He second guesses himself constantly, but on a rare occasion, he gets a thought o idea that he's concrete with. It would take all of the world's forces to make him think otherwise. He is weak at heart and mind often, but deep down, he knows he has to stay strong no matter what. He is often oblivious to what others feel about himself.
Malice- A very solemn fellow. He's had a tragic past, and doesn't like to talk about it. He traded in his old name, Tribbelaro, for the name Malice. He doesn't remember much of his past, only that something, somewhere, took it all away from him. This has hardened his heart, he is not cruel or mean, he is just a tight bottle that won't open for anybody. He hides everything, all of his feelings. He's stone cold (not his heart, just his looks and disposition makes him seem cold and un-caring.) and never smiles. He's a tough soul that's been through hell and is still going. Though he may not look like he does, he can remember bits of his tragic childhood, and that's what keeps him quiet today. Showing emotion makes you weak. He harbors a lot of hate for whoever took everything away from him, but he doesn't remember enough to try to figure out who did it.
Vinia- She's quiet, and likes to get things done. She is a deep thinker, and worries a lot. She cherishes alone time in her big tree, and sometimes wishes she could just disappear
but the one thing that keeps her grounded is Windy, the thought of leaving him drives her insane. Though she loves alone time, she loves her time spent with Windy. She feels as if she has a future with him, though he is completely oblivious to that thought, so she chooses not to tell him. She considers him her second half. She is however, open to all of her friends. Though she doesn't look at him the same way as she does Windy, she finds a great friend in Joho, and this fact makes him the only other Charisma she'll tell ANYTHING to.
Jojo (Joho)- A gentleman. What every girl dreams of. He is witty, charming, good looking, and really smart. He cares deeply for his friends and family enough that he wouldn't hesitate to take a bullet for any of them. He's usually known as a mentor or counselor to others, and he's great with young Charisma. He can make you feel better by just smiling at you. He has big dreams, including being the elder when Kresh is gone. He doesn't judge by looks, he sees no point in it. He gets to know the real you, not just the hard shell you may put up to strangers. Most Charisma have something good to say about Joho.
Kresh- The old coot. Despite being over 400 years old, and albino, nobody seems to respect him and his wild theories. He is the tribe elder, but that doesn't mean they have to listen to him. Since there's usually no trouble in the forest, he stays in the giant tree with his books and spells and such. Windy and his friends love and respect him, and usually stay in or near the tree, and not the forest. He is Windy's role model and mentor. His ideas may be out there, but not un-true. He did predict the coming of Chaos when Windy was born, but nobody believed him. He is like a grandfather nice and sweet, but also strict and stern at the same time. He has no children however, but he see's Windy and his friends as his grandchildren.
Rica- A very rebelious, and bad girl. She will take advantage of males to get what she wants. She has a sweet side, but it's really hard to find in the mess of her personality. She steals, and her nickname is "pirate" she doesn't really care for other people's feelings, and she is easily set off. She will either throw a temper tantrum...or beat you up, or both. She grew up normally, and her personality came out of nowhere. Her parents were nothing like her, but they took care of her anyway. She was a strong willed girl, and decided to leave home at a young age to be free of rules, and get away from everyone. She knew most of them disliked her anyway, except Windy. That guy was SMITTEN with her, but she did pick on him a lot. They had gotten older, and that changed. He no longer had a huge crush on her. She set off (keep in mind, Charisma usually stay with their tribe their whole life to find their own job in the community) and she loved it. She got a few scars, but that's to be expected. She loved the adrenaline rush of stealing, and antagonizing other creatures into attacking her. "Mindless beasts" she called them. She had heard the news that Windy's life was in danger, and he was to go on a life threatening journey to save the community, as Chaos had awakened. She felt a rush of guilt and tried to hurry back and check on her family, and to offer to go with Windy since she has traveled a lot and could help him. To her dismay, he had already left with a group of friends, including Vinia. She knew Vinia loved Windy, more than a friend, but he was too oblivious and naive to see it. That is when her feelings for Windy changed. She....actually felt something more for him, but she was probably never going to see him again.
Fierre (Fierra)- Strong willed and strong hearted, knows what she wants in life. She's not afraid to tell others what she thinks of them and is often described as offensive. She doesn't care what others think of her though, and once she makes a decision, she WON'T change her mind. She is more over a lover than a fighter, but she can be known to defend friends with her
fine choice of vocabulary. She loves her friends and doesn't have a family, but to her, her friends ARE her family. She even has a special "family" role picked out for Malice.
Jace- Very vain and dignified. He loves to look at himself and keeps up his appearance. He's not too boastful about it, that much anyway. He can be a tad braggy at times. He's got the kind of humor that when you're sad, he'll come up to you and say "Hey, it can't be that bad. You have me!" with a big grin. He's very caring in his own way. He's charming of course, and wonders why he's still single. Surprisingly, he is not interested in flings, he wants to find somebody to love him as he loves himself. He's got a pretty good sense of humor and can brighten a room with his spontaneous, but sometimes stupid jokes. He hates it when others are sad, it makes him sad as well. He cares' just in his own way.
Lunar- Lunar is very motherly. She could never have a child on her own, so she took on a young Charisma she had found while living in the desert. He ran away after a year or so though. It brought her down quite a bit, so she decided that since she couldn't be a biological mother, she'd take care of unwanted or orphaned Charisma. She loves everybody equally and doesn't see why there shouldn't be even a small amount of love in everybody's heart. She legitimately cares. She is a great nurse, so much so she became the tribe nurse because she can heal others so quickly. She beats herself down if she can't do anything for the patient, even if there is clearly nothing she could do for them.
Fox- She lives for adrenaline rushes. She loves adventuring and has a very spunky personality. She's withdrawn on telling her friends about her feelings though. She can slack off on responsibility and not even know it. She doesn't really care about keeping up with her personal looks, (NOT the same as personal hygiene fyi) so she often looks a bit rough. Her parents don't know what they did "wrong" to make her so defiant and adventurous as they are quiet and reserved. Her whole family is mannerly and withdrawn. Also another thing she lacks-manners.
Chaos- Embodiment of all evil. Not much personality, he kills for amusement, and kills all who threaten his power so he won't have to worry about it. He gets joy out of others pain and agony and screaming. They are nothing but insignificant pests to him.
Foster- Being of the fancy subspecies, he sees himself above anybody else. He wonders why HE wasn't born with the red eyes. He is obviously more important than this forest riff raff "Windy" fellow. He doesn't really have any friends, even though Windy tried to be friends, he scoffed at him. He felt guilty (as did all of Windy's bullies) when Windy left. Nobody thought he would come back alive.. When he does, however, he can't swallow his pride and say sorry, so he suppresses those feelings. He wants to make others feel bad so he doesn't feel bad about himself.
DiD Charisma Personalities:
Jo- The son of the wise Joho. Jo is not as into learning as his father, but he is very intelligent for one so young. Though he did not delve into the world of learning, he is interested in something- body language. He is extremely keen to detect when something isn't right with his friends, and will do anything to help them. He is very well respected for this, and Joho would like for him to become the tribe counselor once he is of age. Jo, however disagrees. He is very complient though. He doesn't want to hurt anybody's feelings by saying no, and this often gets him into some uncomfortable situations by agreeing to almost everything. As a child, he was always amazed by the stories his father told him of the mighty journey he took with his friends, and is enthralled that Windy the Hero is his dad's closest friend.
Tond- Tond is a rogue. He is very stubborn and hates to just sit around idly. He longs for adventure, kind of like another young Charisma. He's seen many horrific things such as the taking of lands by other Charisma (never a pretty site) and he's seen a few children be sacrificed in the Swamp land- this sends shivers down his spine. He loves children. But when he tries to swoop down and intervene in a sacrifice about to be made by a young Charisma, he is captured. The young one who is about to end his life surprises him. He is trying to save him But the young Charisma Though he's been hardened by what he's seen and experienced, he's just a big goof ball. A kid trapped in an adult body, if you will. He wants a family more than anything, to settle down for a little while would be hard, but once his children are at flying age, back to the skies!
Jarek- Jarek is a different story when it comes to being a Swamp Charisma. He absolutely HATES his lineage and wants more than anything to cut ties with his family- something they won't allow to happen. They force him to watch the horrible things they do to others in the name of "sacrifice" in hopes he will one day join them, but he will do no such thing. He has a heart of gold, but the day he is FORCED to kill an adolescent to "punish" him is the last straw. This adolescent was trying to save the previous victim. Now he had to kill a complete stranger. He had an idea. The one who kills the sacrifice has to dispose of the body. He whispers to the male, who appears is rather large for his age, that he will only hurt him slightly, and then will let him go later on. He breaks his arm, scars him up quite badly, and the tribe is going wild. Their youngest member is coming out of his shell and becoming a killer. They are too busy chanting and dancing in a celebratory way to notice Jarek use his smoke breath, and slashes the sacrifice to make him scream. The smoke breath usually means the sacrifice is near death, but he will use this to help him escape. He tells him to scream and cough and weeze, to sell the story. The smoke acts as a barrier and Jarek takes the ex-sacrifice to the tribe's borders. He is badly wounded, but he can still fly. This desert breed had a strange aura, but after a whisper "thank you...goodbye." and a swift takeoff-the fastest he's seen ANYTHING of that size move, he is gone, and Jarek didn't even catch his name. He'll have plenty of time later though, as he is brutally mutilated, and left on the border when the tribe found out what he did. He wakes up to find the mysterious desert flier had returned the favor. Tond.
Sole Lunar had finally concieved. She was elated when she found out the news. The whole tribe had celebrated. The father was the one she loved the most, her soul mate. He was the darkest of shades, and she herself was named after the night as well. But one thing for certain, this baby would be her shining light. But tragedy was never too far, for she did not survive the birthing. This left the EtBS gang devastated, especially Windy. Their foster mom was no more. But Lunar's mate remembered what she said. "My shining light." So he named the newborn baby girl Sole. It meant "Sun" in some foreign tongue, though he wasn't sure which one. Sole grew up in the company or other children, she became especially close to Allie, Spencer, Phori, and Jo. They were her everything. This reminded the EtBS gang of their childhood friendship. She was raised by her father and learned so much about the lands past, and stuck close to the EtBS gang. She felt amazed to be in such close contact with these heroes. She was always shy and reserved as a very young one, but eventually came out of her shell with the help of friends.
Spencer- Spencer is just a normal Charisma who would be involved in so much more when he gets older. He is full of zeal and spontaneity. He brings good laughs to all of the tribe members and can bring a smile to anybody's face no matter their mood. He is exceptionally drawn to Sole. She is so quiet, and though she laughs at his jokes, they are quiet laughs. He cherishes every smile he can get out of her though. Of all of their friends, these two become the closest.
Allie- Allie came in from a tribe that had to get rid of all of their female offspring in fear the tyrannical ruler would kill them. Her parents had ties in the Forest, so she was brought here. She knows not of this past, and everybody is careful not to tell her prematurely. She is the most outgoing Charisma the tribe has seen since Fox, and everybody loves her because of it. Fox was very loved around the tribe, Allie had heard, and she took in the attention like a sponge. She loves to do dangerous things, and unlike Fox, she loved to get caught. Oh yes, a trouble maker she was. Her closest friends are Jo, Spencer, Phori and Sole.
Phori-Phori was saved from death, and made her way to the Forest when she found her savior resided there. Though she was devastated when she heard he was no more. She became close friends with Spencer, Sole, Allie, and especially Jo. She quite liked him, even though she was at least two years older than him. She is very thankful for everything she has, and gets, because she thinks back to the time where she lost everything, and was saved from death. She might not be here if it weren't for her Hero. She loves having friends, and shares stories (some made up) with them. She brings joy and happiness to her adoptive parents. Without them, she would be nothing, Quite literally.
Adia- I cannot put anything here. Anything I put down here would most definitely ruin Decent into Darkness.
