Ello Miss Stars!

I would like to reserve one character! Uno female!

Camilla Rhodes - 25 - Brie Larson - #A38E8E - Maci-Care

Before the Resolution Camilla was, and still is, the front woman for the popular band, Sophie's Valentine. They were a hit nationally and were about to begin a more international tour when everything changed, strictly limiting their plans for the future. In the beginning, Camilla understood the revolution and why it was happening, but her and her band were quickly approached by the government and "persuaded" to limit their songs and lyrics to ones that would promote their agenda while downplaying the revolution's, typical propaganda. As the Revolution ended, and the "good side" won, Camilla and Sophie's Valentine still came out intact, but were seen as traitors since they supported the government and took their brides. Even though they don't know the whole story...

@Maci: of course, my dear!

@Ulfhednar902: Hey there! I'd love to have you on board. If you could pick out a Face Claim (basically just a celebrity your character looks like) and just write up a short brief on what you're thinking for your character, that would be great! Have a look at the front page for examples of what I mean, and please feel free to PM me if you have any questions or need any help!

Scott Feltikk - 27 - El-p of RTJ - #000000


Scott Feltikk is a bold, unforgiving gangster living in the slums of Scarmouth. His participation in the revolution was huge, with him and his crew taking to the streets and storming several large government buildings. Now that it's done, Scott's torn between going back to his old life, and taking his rightful place among the new republic.

Ryan Joshi - 26 - #3B5998 - Avan Jogia

Ryan was a photographer for a local news channel, and at first he was happy to help cover the revolution, but then he realized that the things he'd seen and what was on the news didn't always fully line up. He didn't intend for it to become a whole thing, really, but before he knew it he was out taking pictures and filming as much as he could, talking to anyone who would speak to him, and posting everything online where the whole world could see it. He doesn't know what to do with his life now: he's not a reporter, and he doesn't really want to be, he just thought people deserved to know what was really happening.

Ashleigh Barnes • 25 • #DA70D6 • Normani Kordei


Before the revolution and destruction happened, she was on the verge of becoming a mega pop star. She sold many albums, collaborated with various artists, and had more than her fifteen minutes of fame. She was gearing for a tour that had sold out within a matter of minutes. She was ecstatic to be doing a worldwide tour, which would've launched her career entirely to the next level. She honestly hates what the world has currently become and just wants everything to go back to normal. But that probably won't happen anytime soon or ever.




Hope this is good and I might create a second character, too.

Magnolia "Nola" Wrenley • 26 • #F08080 • Laura Harrier

Born into the lap of luxury, Magnolia was raised wanting for nothing. She was in the dark about her father's dealings most of her life. He was a business man turned politician, for a long time he was her hero. Then she learned who he really was. When the revolution began he showed his true colors. He was a monster, and Magnolia just had to watch as he tore the world apart. Desperate from perpetual helplessness, she reached out to a journalistic photographer who she thought could get information to the right people. Through the underground network she was able to provide intel and make connections. She began helping those who wished to defect, swearing them to secrecy about her identity. Scarmouth knew her as the dutiful daughter to a fascist, in order for her to serve the revolution it had to stay that way. When the revolution finally reached them in their ivory towers, it was Nola who let them in. Few people knew the extent of her contribution to the revolution, many still saw her as the dutiful daughter to a fascist. She lost everything for other's freedom, and while it was worth it the sacrifice still weighs heavily on her.

Danika "Nika" Gayle Orlov - 25 - #3ffef0 - Blake Lively

Danika Orlov comes from some of the richest families, which is not a huge surprise when you find out she used to train for figure skating in the Olympics. Most of her family members were well established athletes, influencers, and entrepreneurs. Coming from a line of wealth and the 'social society' Danika got talented at talking with people and even getting herself out of danger or toxic publicity. Danika is calm, cool and collected with a public relations job in the city. The only reason why she ended up in her hometown was due to the fact her mother was getting ill and needed someone to watch after her business. As the revolution hit Danika knew she was going to use her wealth and power to use. Danika began to help people hide and get out to safer places. She would harbor individuals in her crawl spaces, attic, and even cellar. It was in these times that she would get out of her house being searched due to her silver tongue, money, or even blackmail. Being in the community for so long, Danika was good at gaining people's secrets.

Miles Caal - 31 - Oscar Isaac - #CC0063

Miles was born amidst opulence; his grandfather had created Caal Industries, an incredibly successful medical technology manufacturer. They fell from grace under his father’s management, when rushed development led to a release of very faulty products. They faced no real legal ramifications, thanks to an ability to throw money at the problem, but they lost their good reputation, and soon were forced to sell the company to recoup their losses. Miles was only a toddler when this happened, and he doesn't remember life before his father's "mistake" ruined them. Legitimate tech companies are hesitant to hire Miles, so he works on his own. It's not always... Legal, but so long as he doesn't get caught he has a lot of freedom to experiment, but word gets around. The government blackmailed Miles to do some less than ethical things to avoid punishment, and now that the revolutionaries have won he's between a rock and a hard place.

Blake Langston | 27 | Ruby Rose | #603670

Blake grew up without a mom and eventually was taking away from their father. After that is was group homes to foster homes while they happened to party and get into the wrong crowd until eventually Blake was being recruited by the army, and after a bit of a debate, they took the chance to do something more with their life. This involved extensive training before they decided to enlist. At the age of 18 Blake had become a member of the army. As the revolution began to be a rumor that spread like wild fire until it was manifesting, Blake decided to pull out when it came time to decide where they wanted their next placement. That was when Blake began to gather around revolutionaries and offered to train them so that they could stand a better chance and predict some of their moves. Blake lost a lot of comrades on the front lines of the revolution and ever since they just haven't been the same and suffers from survivors guilt and PTSD.

Damien Moore • 28 • #4737AE • Chance Perdomo

Damien had lived a mostly unremarkable life until recent years. He worked to survive, also having to provide for his mother and siblings as the oldest. His mother had always put her faith, and her checkbook in the church. Of course the church always gave just enough charity to keep her donating money. When the government began cutting off benefits and his siblings went hungry, the church gave them crumbs. They weren't the only ones either. Damien knew that the church had been exploiting people's charity for years. He began speaking to others, exchanging ideas and hosting parlors where they'd come together and discuss. It all sort of snowballed on it's own with the momentum of the revolution, taking a life of it's own. When the church turned their backs on the people, the people turned to Damien. He had his reach in several pockets all over the city, creating sanctuaries for people. Damien did not seek violence, but some of them were forced to become soldiers in order to protect their people. Many have began to refer to Damien as "Father Damien", and while he initially rejected the title - he knew that many of them needed that construct to help them cope so he began to allow it. He'd deliver sermons once a week to every cluster, though he preached values and ideals not about metaphysical beings. After the revolution he remained a community leader, only expanding his reach and influence.

Samar Chopra - 28 - Rahul Kohli - #b10127 - Ivisbo

Raised amongst the earliest tendrils of the revolution, Samar has only known a life of aggression for the betterment of his community. His uncle was a radical amongst the earliest members, a man that saw brutality as the only way to communicate against the apathetic government rule. Samar’s uncle was his idol- he believed every heated debate, chanted phrase, poster, and flyer out their door. Until Aryan didn’t come home and was never heard from again. Samar threw himself into the revolution, convinced that if he blew up enough cars, enough buildings, rid the world of enough suited scumbags, he would somehow fulfil his uncle’s mission. He did the dirty work that didn’t look good on tv- no one would ever chant his name or plaster his photo in a newspaper- because he was the ugly side of ‘good’. And now... they’ve won. And the only thing he has ever known is over.
