Random Character Trivia
Because if I don't get it down somewhere I'll forget it eventually. And I know it doesn't matter to anyone else, but it kinda matters to me. So, yeah.
Livi? She started out as a doll I got one Christmas. I was somewhere in the realm of 5-7 years old or so. That should tell ya how long I've had some of these charas. The doll was like a witch, or a magical princess, or somethin. [EDIT]Princess Magic Touch, omfg! She was freaking Princess Magic Touch![/EDIT] She came with a cute wand that had a magnet, and it could do things with her other stuff. She was the effin' coolest. Wish I still had everything, but most of it's long gone. Still got her tho. Yay memories. The name I had for her originally was Lydia. Sibling being so young, she couldn't pronounce it, which annoyed the hell outta me when we played. So, I renamed her Olivia after our neighbor. Somehow that was easier for Melissa to say, so we went with it. Don't remember when she started going by just Livi, but there ya go.
And then I figured Livi could do with some friends, some sister-witches. And so Becca came along. She was originally a Southern Belle-type, and completely fucking gorgeous. She's gotten a lot more realistic, no more impossible supermodel figure - in fact, she's put on several pounds and is totally hot for it. Hell, I was influenced by Barbie, dammit. Somewhere along the line she turned British. Still spent a year on a farm in the Deep South tho. Personality-wise she hasn't changed much; she's still one of the nicest people in the group.
Shortly after that was when Priss showed up. She suffered many name misspellings. I think that's partly why everyone just calls her Priss now, since it's almost impossible to misspell. Seems like she was a lot more mellow back then, kinda 'meh' about everything. She just evolved into the badass ice bitch at some point. Hell, she evolved into her own freakin' species. Y'know, since humans can't be as bloody strong as she is, and all.
Ok, so I've got the leader-type, the healer-type, and the destructive-type. Now what?
Well randomly, I got a brother for Livi. So came Max. They were twins, yo. Appearance-wise he was loosely based on the main character of Mighty Max. Remember that show? I loved it. Any show with Tim Curry as the villain hasta rock. But anyway, yeah. Near same look at first, totally different personality. He started out way more outgoing, nearly as much as his sister, but then somewhere along the line he lost the extroversion and did a full 180 into the semi-mental introverted hacker-
nerdgeek he is today. And the telekinesis? Hell, if his twin has magic he's gotta have something. Runs in the family.
And Brandon? I think his original purpose was so Max wouldn't just be surrounded by girls all the time (not that he ever seemed particularly 'interested' in Becca or Priss, but there ya go). He needed a guy friend. Brandon was always the wild child, got into scrapes just as fast as he got out, usually unintentionally dragging a friend or two along for the ride. He's still the same orphan raised in the woods by abusive nomad-people he always was, except now he's a werewolf too. Because... I forget why. That and he's adorable when he's furry and wreaking havoc.
Yeah, some of this is just silly. But hey, these guys were created when I was young and stupid. They've gotten better.
So there's my Original Five. Whee, five heroes, sorta. Just like Power Rangers or somethin. Except this bunch doesn't have matching uniforms or mecha, or anything like that, and only in my imagination did they ever get together and save the world or whatever.
I'm so tired of typing now. But now I won't forget any of this, cuz it's here. Yay! <.< Later on sometime I oughta do this for my newer people. Don't wanna forget them either.
