a character in “Disney's Magical Island”, as played by PinkPeppercorn




N i c k n a m e s : Herc
A g e : 19
D i s n e y M o v i e : Hercules
B i r t h d a y : October 23
G e n d e r : Male
S e x u a l i t y : Heterosexual
T h e O n l y M e m o r y Left: I remember riding a white horse... but it was in the air? Completely crazy, I know, but it's all I have to go on.

L i k e s
  • Helping others
  • Working out
  • Showing off my abs (I mean, come on, look at 'em)
  • Rescuing damsels in distress
  • Beautiful ladies.. and there are plenty of those on this island

D i s l i k e s
  • Failure
  • Causing trouble
  • Breaking things
  • Being labeled a freak
  • Not fitting in

F e a r s
  • Not being able to ever remember my family
  • Not being able to protect those I care about

P e r s o n a l i t y : I think I'm a pretty great guy. I mean, I'm nice, helpful-- I'd even venture to say I'm heroic. I will go out of my way to try and help or protect someone. Some people may consider me vain. I mean, I do like myself, and I try to take good care of my body and I take pride in my physical achievements. I mean, if I can't take care of myself and keep in shape, how am I supposed to take care of anyone else? Socially, I like to have a good time and goof off with guys, and yeah, I love the ladies. I would consider myself a gentleman, though. But it seems like a lot of the girls here take my attempts at chivalry the wrong way.

B i o g r a p h y :
Before the island:
Hercules was born on Mount Olympus to parents Hera and Zeus, the king of the gods. While his birth was a joyous occasion for most, His uncle Hades, the lord of the Underworld wanted to have him killed. He learned from the Fates that if Hercules fights, Hades's plan to unleash the titans and take over Mount Olympus would be ruined. Hades knew that he could not kill Hercules as an immortal god, and told two of his minions, Pain and Panic, to kidnap Hercules from Mount Olympus and to give him a potion that would make him mortal. They did so, although Herculed did not finish every last drop of the potion and therefor still kept his godlike strength, and Pain and Panic were unable to kill him.
Baby Herc was found by Amphytryon and Alcmene, who had been unable to have children and considered Hercules an answer to their prayers to the gods. When Zeus and Hera finally found Hercules, they discovered that he was now mortal and therefore could not return to live on Mount Olympus, so they left him in the care of his loving adoptive parents. As he grew, he was clumsy and awkward and could never quite control his godly strength, which usually ended in him wreaking havoc and being labeled a freak and a menace by those around him.
After one such disastrous incident, his parents finally decide to tell him how they had found him, and showed him a medallion that had been around his neck bearing the symbol of the gods. Hercules decided to travel to the Temple of Zeus for guidance. While he was at the temple, Zeus himself appeared embodied in a stone statue of himself and told Hercules that he was his father. He told him that he could not live on Mount Olympus as a mortal, but if he became a "True Hero" he could regain his status as a god. He was reunited with Pegasus, which had been a gift from Zeus when he was born, and was sent to find Philoctetes, a satyr, who would train him to be a hero.
After much time training with Philoctetes, it was time to prove himself as a hero in Thebes. People were skeptical of him at first, but he began gaining celebrity as a hero as he started to defeat monsters and disasters that that were wreaking havoc on the city. He returned to the Temple of Zeus to tell him of all he had accomplished, only to learn that he still wasn't considered a true hero. It was as he was leaving the temple that he fell from the story onto the island.
On the island: It has been an interesting week since I woke up with no memories here on the island. Seems like everyone is in the same boat. I've had a little bit of time to look around. There's this mall, and it's got a gym. I spend a lot of time there working out. Oh, and Max's hangout is great too. Honestly, this place isn't bad at all, it's just... I wish I knew just exactly where I belong. You know?

Rita rolled over in her bed, the sunlight pouring nicely onto her bed. She groaned, flipping over to lay on her stomach. Her hand instinctively went up to her hair, pushing it out of her face, as she tried to dose back into sleep. It didn't work. She rolled over, once again, greeted by the bright sunlight. Her face scrunched in annoyance, but she finally sat up.

She could feel her hair standing up at every possibly angle, the wild curls hard to maintain even with the greatest of efforts. She ran a hand through it once more, her fingers snagging on a knot. She cried out, as she accidently yanked her head to the side. Rita collapsed back onto her pillows, whining dramatically into the soft cushion.

She finally pushed her way out of bed, the blanket falling to the ground as it untangled from around her legs. She glared at her window, the sun actually, for waking her up. She was up late last night, although she can't remember exactly what had happened. She remembered being out with some friends, and then going home to hang out with Terk since she was so miserable. Tequila was involved in there somewhere.

The thought of the alcohol caused Rita's head to pulse with pain briefly. She sighed, rubbing her temple. She headed to the bathroom for a shower, hoping the steam would reveal her stolen memories. It didn't. Her head hurt slightly less, but she still wasn't sure what exactly happened last night. She changed into some dark jeans and a t-shirt and headed downstairs in the search of food.

And then the memories flooded back in.

Every single dish, broken apart thanks to Terk's excessive need to create music with anything she could find. Apparently, shattering bowls was her new things. Rita sighed as she checked each of the cabinets. Everything. Broken. What was Tylar doing last night that kept him from making sure the two girls didn't do anything stupid? Like break every dish in the kitchen?

Rita's stomach grumbled, but she couldn't eat here. Not if she wanted to see what would happen if she tried to eat cereal on a paper plate. She would have to go to the diner, there were probably already pancakes cooked and waiting. Pulling on some shoes, Rita headed out, running a hand through her hair, once more.


Lucas had awoken quite before the sunrise, giving himself plenty of time to shower and eat before his two roommates did. It had become habit to do this, in attempts to avoid the two people whom a shared a house. The Golden Boy, and the Adventurer. He rolled his eyes as the sun finally made its appearance.

He slipped out of the house without so much as a click of the door closing behind him. He walked calmly towards the library, his gray bag draped over his shoulder, holding books that he borrowed last night. He spent most of his night reading them, after being forced to leave when the building closed, but now it was time to head back to his only sanctuary.

Not even his bedroom gave him much comfort. He was quite pleased with what the island offered, and although his past is fuzzy, he does quite enjoy this life as opposed to the one he once had. Still, he found less enjoyment out of the things everyone else seemed to love.

The library still wasn't open, so Lucas took a seat on one of the benches outside, and pulled out one of the books from his bag. He rested his right ankle on his left knee, and flipped open to his bookmarked page. He grabbed his glasses, and slipped them on and happily began reading.
