The Bare Necessities



Powers/Abilities:

Mulan doesn't have any powers, per say, but she has plenty of abilities. She is fully trained as a soldier in the Chinese army, and she's quite good at thinking on her feet.

Strengths:

Mulan knows her way with a sword, and is a great warrior overall. She also has a good knack for thinking up plans on the fly, and just defying the odds in a general sense.

Weaknesses:

Mulan is still very much human, and has weaknesses and flaws. At times she can be insecure about herself and what's she's doing. Her sense of duty and honor can also cloud her judgment at times, as well.

Fears:

There is very little that Mulan fears these days. But if there's one thing she does fear, it's losing what she has left of her family.

Quirks:

Mulan is a bit clumsy, and she has a habit of making quite the fool of herself at times. Otherwise, she isn't a real quirky individual.

Deeper into the Rabbit Hole

Goals:

To defeat the Huns and kill Shan Yu, stop this Coalition in general, and restore peace and prosperity to her ravaged homeland.

Significant Relationships

Mulan made quite a few friends during her stay in the army, though she's unsure if any of them are even alive now.

Most significantly, she got quite close with Captain Shang, and later married him some time after the Hun Invasion. Mulan loved Shang deeply, and wished to start a family with him, before her life collapsed around her. There isn't a day that goes by that Mulan doesn't grieve Shang's death, and wish that he was still alive. He was a great man, and she will never forget him.

Family

Mulan had a small, but close-knit, family consisting of her mother, father, and grandmother. Her grandmother had passed away some time before the Huns returned, so she was thankfully spared seeing that madness, but her mother was unfortunately slain during the Hun attack on her village. Thankfully, her father still lives, and Mulan is determined to see that he stays that way. Her mother and husband may be dead, but she isn't losing her father too!

Personality:

At her core, Mulan tries to be a kind and sweet young woman, friendly to everyone around her. Still, she isn't quite a 'normal' girl, so to speak; she does not fit in with the expectations of a young girl in her culture. Despite her natural beauty, she is clumsy, outspoken, and independent, rather than graceful, obedient, silent and demure. However, her courage, intelligence, and determination, has helped her through her adventures, so Mulan tends to take pride in her 'abnormal' traits.

History:

Mulan has had quite an extensive history, to say the least.

Her life was mostly unremarkable until the Huns invaded China, sometime after she had turned 16 years old. Mulan's veteran, crippled father was called into service, but she did not want him to die out there on the battlefield, so she stole his armor and orders in the middle of the night, planning on posing as his son so he wouldn't have to go himself.

Mulan had a rough time of fitting in at the army camp, at first, but after awhile she earned the respect and trust of Captain Shang and her comrades. After a certain point Mulan's unit was called into service, to join the main army in fighting the Huns. When they arrived at the rendezvous coordinates, however...

It was a massacre. The entirety of the Chinese army had been slaughtered by the Huns, including Shang's own father. Soon after Mulan and the other soldiers engaged the Huns in fighting too, though it did not last long. In a bout of quick thinking, Mulan took their last remaining canon and fired it at a nearby mountain peak, unleashing an avalanche with her explosion. Mulan survived the fallout of the natural disaster, but not before being wounded by Shan Yu; she later fell unconscious due to blood loss, and was patched up by the unit's doctor.

As a result, however, it was discovered she was a woman. Chi Fu, the Emperor's adviser, ordered for her execution, but Shang decided to spare her life instead. Mulan sulked on the mountain for a brief time after she was abandoned, until the unthinkable happened.

Shan Yu and a select number of the Huns had survived the avalanche, and made way to the Imperial City. Hoping to stop them, Mulan got her act together and raced after them, arriving at the capital in the nick of time. The Huns launched their ambush just as Shang presented the sword of Shan Yu to the Emperor, kidnapping China's leader in the process.

What followed was quite the intense battle. Mulan banded together with Captain Shang and three other soldiers of her unit, and together they defeated the Huns and rescued the Emperor. Shan Yu and his remaining forces were dead by the end of this engagement, and the Emperor himself awarded Mulan for her deeds.

Several years passed, and life moved on. Mulan retired to a more quiet and peaceful life back home, eventually marrying Shang a few years later. She was even ready to start a family with him, when everything went wrong.

Somehow, through some sort of evil and twisted magic, Shan Yu and his Hun army were brought back to life. They carved their way through China and sacked the Imperial City before the Emperor could raise up the army, executing the elderly man before the frightened and cowed citizenry. Eventually the Hun hoard made its way to her village. Mulan put up a brave fight with the men of her village, including her father and husband, to buy time for the rest of the village to evacuate, but in the end, it was just too much.

The small squad of Huns sent to conquer her village were dead by the end of the engagement, but so was just about everyone else. When the fight was over, Mulan was bloody and wounded, her husband and mother were dead, her father was badly wounded, and her entire life was thrown upside down.

After a time, Mulan retreated with her father and Mushu, tending to their wounds, as they evaded Hun patrols. two months has passed since this horrible event, and Mulan has only one thing in mind, now that she's recovered: revenge.

The Huns, Shan Yu especially, will pay for what they have done to China, and to her family. They will regret the day they messed with Fa Mulan.

Maleficent

Within the deep, twisted abyss of a broken world, Maleficent, Empress of all Evil, was seated majestically upon her throne. Around her were the misty visages of her fellow Coalition members, magical avatars that projected the images of her followers. It was a communications system set up via a combination of her own dark magic and Jafar's powers as a djinn, a way for her and the rest of the Coalition to converse and meet up, without having to leave the safety and comfort of their own individual domains.

"This Council will come to order." Maleficent's measured voice announced, bringing the attention of the other villains to her. The demonic witch inclined her head to the former Prince of the Southern Isles, as she continued on. "First order of business, an update on the continued conquest of all of Creation. King Hans, you are first."

"Of course, my dark Empress." Hans gave her what she assumed to be a rather charming smile, though it did little to affect her. "Arendale and the surrounding kingdoms are all under m--our control, and wiping out any dissidents has proven very affective. The demon army has now reached the borders of Mother Gothel's territory, and with that, they are heading south now, to begin the conquest of the Desert Tribal fiefdoms."

Maleficent took in what he said, nodding her head once. She knew all this already, of course, but these meetings served more purpose than just a pure debriefing and share of knowledge. The Eternal Empress was always curious if any of her servants would leave anything out of their reports, or if they might otherwise hold back information. It was a good way to indicate which lesser members of the Coalition she should keep an eye on.

"Good, very good. And you, Hades?" Maleficent turned her gaze to her 'partner' and co-founder of the Coalition, eying him with great curiosity. "How go our efforts toward discovering a way toward weakening, and eventually killing, the other Greek pantheons?"

This much she knew already as well, but it wouldn't do, to ignore such an...important member of her Coalition. Even if she did find the God of the Underworld grating at times, he was still a very useful ally, and quite the powerful 'partner'. It would be in her best interests to placate him as much as possible before his inevitable betrayal.

And betray him, he would. They all would, given the chance. Maleficent was not so foolish as to believe that an organization founded by petty and power-hungry titans would last long, before it fell to infighting. Still, the Coalition was serving its purpose quite nicely, and more importantly, she was more than confident she could take out any of the people here, if they sought to overthrow her.

Well...mostly everyone here, at any rate. Hades was the one man in this Coalition who Maleficent felt she could rightfully be wary of. He was a god, immortal, and very, very powerful. And, much to her distaste, he wasn't under her control at all, unlike the equally threatening but 'loyal' djinn Jafar.

Still, the Coalition would hold, for the time being. They were still united in common goal, and it would take quite some time before the eventual splintering began. And Maleficent would take advantage of this fragile peace, while it lasted.

The Gatekeeper

In a dimension that existed outside of regular space and time, The Gatekeeper, protector of the vast Multiverse, waited. He waited for the perfect opportunity to enact his desperate, one last plan to save the entirety of the Multiverse from being overrun by the Coalition of Evil.

Three months had passed for him since Maleficent's initial incursion, and things were not getting any better. Heroes great and power, from across the universes, had fallen one by one against her Coalition, leaving entire worlds defenseless and ripe for conquest.

But that would end here, for good. The Heroes of the lands may have been slain, but all hope was not yet lost. There were many people, many brave and righteous souls, who could take the places of their fallen comrades, and push back the tide of evil that was threatening to swallow all of Creation.

And here, today, he would assemble them, and begin the eventual downfall of the Coalition.

"Genie." the Gatekeeper turned his attention to the blue-skinned djinn, his most useful and helpful ally in these dark times. "It is time. Bring forth the Champions to this Realm, so that we may begin."

Mulan

Three months. Three months since everything had changed, and her life had gone to hell. Three months since the impossible return of the Hun Army to live. Three months since the fall of China. Three months since nearly everything Mulan had loved or cared about had been torn apart, and burnt to the ground.

It had been a hard three months, to say the least.

If there was any bright side to these horrid events, it was that she wasn't alone. Her faithful stead Khan remained very much alive, as did Mushu, her ever vigilant guardian spirit. And, best of all, her father remained among the living as well. So if the tragedies that had befallen her recently had any bright side, it was the fact that she wasn't completely alone.

It didn't make the loss of her nation, village, mother, grandmother, and husband any better to stomach or bare, though.

"I will retrieve the wood for the fire tonight, Mulan." the voice of her father broke through her thoughts. The young woman looked up at the older veteran and nodded dimly, watching as he left the clearing they were in and delve into the forest.

They'd spent a lot of nights like this, ever since they had first started running from the Huns. Traveling by day, settling into camp by night. Every day it was the same thing. And Mulan hated doing it; hated retreating, running away. She wanted nothing more than to find the Huns, hunt every last one of them down, especially Shan Yu...but that just wasn't feasible. One woman against an armada of warriors wasn't even a contest. It was a slaughter.

Still, she wished they could do something. Something to help take back their lives, and get revenge on the people that had wronged them.

Rapunzel

"This looks like a good place to sleep for the night, Maximus." Rapunzel commented to her horse, as they came to a slow trot, circling around what she was fairly sure was an abandoned farmstead. She felt a little bad about breaking into another person's house, and sleeping in their bed, but...well, it was fairly obvious they weren't using it.

Besides, she did want to spend at least one night without sleeping on the hard, cold ground.

Rapunzel left Maximus tethered outside (since she couldn't fit him through the small doorframe of the house) and walked into the abandoned building. Later, she might search the kitchen and cellar to see what food, if any, remained inside, but for now, all she wanted was sleep.

It took her a good minute, but she finally found a bedroom, with a particularly inviting bed. The former Princess nearly flopped onto the mattress, settling into sleep, not even bothering to cover herself up.

Much to her regret, though, sleep alluded her. And without sleep, she was left to her own thoughts. Thoughts of the past desperate, horrible three months. Thoughts of her former home....

Rapunzel sniffled a little, and felt her eyes water, but she did not cry. Her tears had long since been spent, and perhaps it was better that way.

It still hurt to think of the past, though. Of Eugene, her parents, her fallen kingdom...all of it hurt so much, and she didn't know when it would stop.

If it would ever stop.

Mushu


Sitting on top of a tree just beyond the clearing where Mulan, her father, and her cow were staying, Mushu stared up into the sky. After everything that had happened, how could the stars and moon still shine so brightly? He scowled slightly and closed his eyes, but the image was already burned into his mind. Cri-Kee was gone, Shang was gone, the rest of Mulan's family was gone... And how? Shan Yu was suddenly alive and kicking, along with his entire Hun Army. And Mushu could do nothing. Nothing!

Angrily, Mushu lashed out at the tree with his claws. It did nothing to help the present situation, but Mushu felt a little better for it nevertheless. He let out a deep breath and counted to ten in his head. That usually did the trick when he was trying to calm down, and it did this time as well. Instead of being mad at an inanimate object, Mushu focused his anger on Shan Yu. He may be more than four times Mushu's size, but that wouldn't stop him the next time they met. Mushu would make him pay somehow.

The sound of passing feet drew Mushu out of his thoughts. He looked down to see Mulan's father going out into the forest, probably to get some more firewood. That was his cue to return. The only person Mushu trusted to keep Mulan safe was himself and her father. Okay, the horse could be useful as well. But other than that, no one. He slid down the trunk and quickly made his way back to the clearing.

Once Mulan was in sight, Mushu gave a small cough to get her attention. It wouldn't be of any use if she attacked him because she thought they were under attack. He nodded at Mulan, sat down next to her, and softly patted her knee.


Claude Frollo


Frollo refrained from giving a small grunt of disapproval when Maleficent began to speak. Just because she had helped him return from Hell didn't mean he owed her any favors. And what she was doing right now- witchcraft and associating with demons- was definitely something that would come back to haunt her. At the moment, the only reason Frollo didn't punish her was because she was still useful. After all, the Lord helps those who help themselves.

He listened as several other villains began to give their reports. There were few of them that he deigned to pay attention to, even fewer that he actually liked. But even he had to admit that ridding the entire world of the wicked would have been impossible for one man, even one as qualified as himself.

When Hades began to speak, however, Frollo straightened up. Of the top three in charge, Hades seemed to be the only one with some sense. At least he hadn't made any claims to run the operation, which was basically what Maleficent had done. She might be able to convince others that everyone was a team, but it was obvious to him that she was putting herself above everyone else. Frollo also couldn't help but feel a small amount of respect for Hades. The fact that he was willing to destroy his fellow gods meant that he knew what was right, in a sense. But that didn't mean they were friends. Not by any stretch of the imagination.
