Joan is warm-hearted and conscientious. She tend to put the needs of others over her own needs.She feels strong sense of responsibility and duty and value traditions and security.

She is extremely cautious and can get sometimes stressed a bit.

Their Story:
Joan was always an angel, even before she was a real angel. She was born in a noble family, raised in diplomacy and manners, and was a sweet and innocent girl. She always took care of the weak and poor. When she turned 18, she even pretended to be a man to fight her cause of helping the need and helpless because a woman won't be listened to. Joan is very smart, and because her high charisma she can convince an Eskimo to buy ice from her. She was almost a saint back on earth and when she died many people attended her funeral.
Joan is an eldar angel for 850 years now. She is very sweet and protective. She was always fighting on the good side and never tempted by evil. Joan was not among those angels that itch to fight all the time, she was a diplomatic and charismatic angel always suggesting the politic and diplomatic way to solve their problems. It made her a bit of an outcast as no one quite listened to her. Only the eldar angel, Daniel, she always quite liked him from any other angel.She also loves very much the humans and do the maximum to save them from sins and evil. As soon as the young angels' powers manifested and it seems they will be in danger to everyone and themselves she immediately joined Daniel to help him hide those kids among the humans from the forces that hunts them down.
She helped shaped the human's memories in order for them to believe the young angels were living there all along. Only after she finished taking care of them she than decided it is best to come also to earth and watch over them from here and to help them if they need it. She found a job as a waitress in the local coffee shop, which is good as most of them hang out there, so she can watch them closely. Joan acts as a mother-figure and a teacher to the young angels and also to the regular humans.

Anything Else You May Need To Know About Them:
Joan is not very good at fighting, she tries most to solve problems in a diplomatic way. She is very skilled in diplomacy and good charisma.

The Song That Sums Them Up:

(Optional) There must be an angel- Eurythmics

No-one on earth could feel like this.
I'm thrown and overblown with bliss.
There must be an angel
Playing with my heart.
I walk into an empty room
And suddenly my heart goes "boom"!
It's an orchestra of angels
And they're playing with my heart.

(Must be talking to an angel)

No-one on earth could feel like this.
I'm thrown and overblown with bliss.
There must be an angel
Playing with my heart.
And when I think that I'm alone
It seems there's more of us at home.
It's a multitude of angels
And they're playing with my heart.

[Chorus repeats]

I must be hallucinating
Watching angels celebrating.
Could this be reactivating
All my senses dislocating?
This must be a strange deception
By celestial intervention.
Leavin' me the recollection
Of your heavenly connection.

So begins...

"And that is exactly why if a guy you've only just met turns up underneath your window at two in the morning and asks you to marry him, you should say no and call for help. And the same applies to women. " Daniel concluded, putting his copy of Romeo and Juliet on the desk beside him. He was perched on the edge of it, his legs stretched out in front of him. He was rewarded with a roll of laughter. "I've skimmed through your essays on Romeo's character and I have to say, from what I've read, they seem relatively interesting. Good work. We'll start watching the movie adaption of the play on Monday, and I will hopefully have those essays graded for you." The bell rung, and everyone got to their feet, including him. "Have a good weekend, guys. Look after yourselves." He grinned and stretched a little as his students started streaming out of the classroom. He caught a glimpse of Jake and Vivienne joining the back of the stream of students. Once Jake was near enough, he beckoned him over. "Wait for me outside." He heard him tell Vivienne, before coming up to stand in front of Daniel. The boy's eyes were on the ground. Daniel sighed a little.

"How're you doing?" Daniel asked quietly. Jake shrugged. "Missing home. I mean, this town is nice and all, and the people are wonderful, but it's not..." He trailed off, and Daniel nodded. He missed Heaven as well from time to time. He wasn't used to concealing his wings, and walking around with his wings hidden was unnatural to him. It was surreal. Everyone acted like they had known them for years, when in reality, they'd only been in the town a week. But he seemed to be adapting easier than Jake.

"Hopefully it's not going to be permanent. With a bit of luck, we'll be home in a few weeks. We've got people negotiating on our behalf, persuading them that you're not demons." He noticed Jake's posture stiffen a little. Jake's eyes were staring at the floor, and his head was ducked a little. Daniel frowned. Something was bothering the kid. "Jake, is there anything you want to tell me?" He asked gently, putting a hand on his arm. Jake shook his head, and his posture told Daniel that he wasn't going to get anything out of him.

Daniel sighed. "If you want to talk to me about anything over the weekend, you have my mobile number. We can meet up if you don't want to talk about it over the phone. Go on, don't keep Vivienne waiting. Enjoy yourself this weekend." Jake nodded. "Thanks, sir." He mumbled, and left. Daniel sighed, shoving his few bits into his messenger bag and pulling off his loosely knotted tie, throwing that in on top. His shirt sleeves were already rolled up to the elbow. He slung the bag over his right shoulder and headed out, pulling the classroom door shut after him.

It was their first weekend in the town, and even he was a little concerned about what would happen. He had seen the name "Zach Killoran" on one of his class lists, and was almost sure that it was one of the Fallen Angels. If that wasn't enough, he had thought he had seen Hadriel around.

He was within walking distance of the cafe where Joan worked, so he decided to grab a coffee. Most of the students wouldn't be heading there for another hour or so, so they would be relatively free to talk.

He walked in and perched on a stool at the counter. "Caramel latte please, and one of those giant cookies." He ordered, a grin on his face as he looked at his friend.

Jake smiled at Vivi as he left the classroom. He knew that his posture was giving him away, so he decided to be a little honest. "He knows I visited my family last weekend, and was just asking if everything was alright." He admitted as they started walking down the corridor, towards the freedom of the weekend. "I wasn't exactly going to tell my English teacher that my family are assholes." He laughed a little, fixing the straps of his bag on his shoulder. Vivi felt almost a little familiar, like she had belonged back home.

Then again, that could just be because he had to act that way. But he genuinely did like her.

"So, what do you wanna do? It's the weekend. The world is our oyster." He casually threw one arm around her shoulders as they went down the steps of the school, spreading the other wide. He actually wasn't sure of what there was to do in this town, so he decided to let her take the lead.

If he was back home, they would probably be in training for another hour or two. Then they'd all probably go for a run and settle in for a movie night, before spending the weekend in each other's houses, seeing who could fit the most jelly beans in their mouth. He didn't know how that would roll here, so he decided just to keep his mouth shut. It was always a suggestion, if it came to it.

Kaitlin walked down the halls of her somewhat new high school. She had been there for a good time it felt, though at the same time, it felt as if she had been there forever. As she passed people in the hall, Katy waved at the various people she knew and was friends with. It was different walking down the hall and smiling as well as waving at people who liked you and you liked instead of the opposite. Kaitlin smiled as she passed her English class. The teacher was an angel, one she was well aware of considering he had helped with the immersion process that resulted in her being there. Katy shifted her backpack slightly. It was easy to forget that one had wings when one had them their entire life. Having to wear a backpack was rather annoying as if it moved a wrong way, it could result in the strap tugging at her wing. Usually they were folded up tight enough to her back that nothing was wrong, but there were always issues.

Katy walked outside, smiling as she was welcomed to warm weather. She had done rather well on a recent test even if the information was actually useless to her. It felt good to be praised whatever the reason really. Katy had to hurry to get to the coffee shop if she wanted a chance to be able to go out tonight. Her new parents were nice enough though they always wanted to at least see Katy before she went out. They would be leaving the house in a bit so if Katy didn't hurry, there wouldn't even be a slight chance of going out without guilt.

As Katy walked into the cafe, she noticed her English teacher and smiled slightly. There was another lady there that Katy knew well enough though she wasn't one to interact with her except at the cafe itself. "Hi, can I please just have a vanilla bean frappuccino?" Katy asks one of the other workers as she moves for her wallet in her backpack.

Katy gave a small wave and smile to Mr. Daniels before zipping her wallet away again, offering the money to the young male. He moves t give her change and get the drink leaving Katy to stand and wait for him, not sure if she should bother taking out her phone to check for messages or anything. It wasn't a surprise to see any nowadays which made Kaitlin feel all the more happy about herself.

He grinned as Joan handed him his coffee and his drink. "Thanks." She leaned in and lowered her voice. "So, you worried too? More than usual?" He sighed and nodded. "I don't exactly trust the name Killoran. And I'm almost sure I saw Hadriel yesterday. I never considered them as a threat. But if the kids aren't safe here, where are they safe? He shrugged, taking a sip of his coffee and grinning. "You know exactly how I like it."

He looked up to see Kaitlin come in. She ordered and gave him a little wave, and he grinned back in response. He looked back at Joan. "It's nice to see that some of the kids are doing well here. You know, I don't think it would be so bad if we couldn't go back. But then we have the kids who aren't doing so well..." He trailed off.

He broke off a bit of his cookie and dipped it in his coffee. "What would you do? If we had the choice to stay or go back?"

“We do what we always do, Jake. Try to take over the world.” He laughed. “But when that falls through, I dunno. Maybe we get candy and pizza then glue ourselves to Netflix, although not very ambitious. If you’re feeling adventurous we can always try and find some live music somewhere.” He raised an eyebrow in thought, then grinned at her.

"Why bother trying to find it? I have two guitars, a piano and a bass. I could always play you some live music..." He paused, his grin growing ever bigger as he looked at her. A mischievous streak ran through that grin. "On the condition that you sing. Then, afterwards, we could grab some pizza and insist to everyone that asks that we're not actually on a date. Or say nothing and just piss ourselves laughing." He suggested, grinning at her. Suddenly Riversdale didn't seem so bad.

"So, my house it is then? Access to a grand piano, an acoustic and electric guitar and a bass?"

"Why bother trying to find it? I have two guitars, a piano and a bass. I could always play you some live music...On the condition that you sing.

“Well you know you don’t have to twist my arm, you know I like to sing. Especially when we’re together.” Vivi replied blithely before realizing the implication of her words and backtracking a bit. “I mean, when we’re performing together.” The purple haired girl finished sheepishly as they exited the school building into the light of day.

Vivienne was actually quite proud of her singing talent, it was what she was good at. There had been times when that was all that had gotten her through and she took great joy in it. So it would come as no surprise to Jake that Vivi would immediately seize upon his offer. This would also give her the chance to brush up on her piano skills. While she was fair to middling, she in no way rivaled Jake’s ability.

Then, afterwards, we could grab some pizza and insist to everyone that asks that we're not actually on a date. Or say nothing and just piss ourselves laughing. So, my house it is then? Access to a grand piano, an acoustic and electric guitar and a bass

“You’d be so lucky” Vivi teased back, rolling her eyes at her best friend as a flood of departing students streamed past them. It wouldn’t be the first time that people assumed Jake and Vivienne were an item which they’d always been quick to deny. Vivi felt for the first time that she’d might not answer so quick.

“I like your style, Kid.” Vivi continued dramatically bestowing upon Jake a brilliant smile.“Lead the way and if you’re nice I’ll sing for you and let you buy me pizza.”

The fallen angel now known as Jack shifted restlessly in the chair behind his neat desk. It had been a day full of squalling, snotty children and it had taken everything in his power not to swallow them up with darkness and let the demons feed on their bones. He regretted the day that he saw the advertisement for a pediatrician but it had served a great opportunity to immerse himself in this nothing of a town.

If it was up to Jack he would have obliterated this depressing hole but discretion was the better part of valor someone said once. Instead he’d have to ingratiate himself to these people, gain their trust and find the hidden angels. It shouldn’t be too terribly difficult to smite a few teenagers but Jack had been around long enough to never take anything for granted.

So instead he was stuck here with his fellow fallen angels posing as a family. The thought of actually having a wife or caring for an orphaned nephew was laughable. Jack had actually been born into a fairly large family and had hated every second of it. With a grimace at his plight he pushed back from his desk and left his tiny office, not bothering to lock it. The fool who dared to trespass into inner sanctum would be in for quite a surprise.

As the fallen angel emerged from his office the change in his personality and physicality was palpable. Instead of a dark scowl on his face it was now lit by an award winning smile, and now he didn’t seem so tense as if he was ready to pounce upon anything that moved. Now Jack had a bit of a bounce in his step and jauntily waved at the receptionist as he walked outside.

Walking over to the café that was only a few blocks from his office he applauded his choice when he caught sight of the other occupants. Daniel and another angel, his sycophant most likely. While Jack was here to destroy the younger angels he wasn’t above some collateral damage. Of course now wasn’t nearly the right time, but it wouldn’t hurt to show his face. Jack like the idea of the angels knowing of his presence, living their days in dreadful anticipation.

Hopping lightly onto a stool, he smiled indulgently. “Coffee. Black. And a menu. I’m positively famished.”

Daniel glanced up as a newcomer entered the cafe. It took him a second or two to recognise the face- but once he did, he almost forgot to breathe. Hadriel. He shot a panicked look at Joan before taking a moment to regain his composure. He leaned in slightly. "Joan. I don't want to panic you, but there's a certain fallen angel sitting a few seats away."

He inclined his head towards where he was sitting. He almost snapped the handle from the mug as he realised that Kaitlin was still in the cafe. "Joan, I have to do something. Kaitlin's still here, and I don't think he's in Riversdale to sample the tourist life." He took a mouthful out of his coffee and walked over to where Hadriel was sitting. He took a moment to remember the times he'd heard Killoran mentioned. Then it hit him- Jack Killoran, the new pediatrician.

"I hope you don't mean any trouble, Jack." He said quietly, leaning in like he was just making a passing comment or recommending something on the menu. But he allowed the venom to carry through in his voice, making sure the volume was low enough for only Hadriel to hear it.

Image

She gave him a brilliant smile, and he found himself returning a smaller one. She wasn't the worst person he could get stuck with. “Lead the way and if you’re nice I’ll sing for you and let you buy me pizza.” He laughed a little. "I love how you just accept that I won't let you pay for it."

He dropped his arm from around her shoulders as they walked, but they stayed close. They chatted and laughed, making comments about their classes and teachers. Daniel was no exception, his vivid red hair coming up more than once. It just felt so natural. There was an aura of familiarity about her, one that he liked.

After a while, they reached his foster parents' house. It was a dormer bungalow of a decent size, more than big enough for the three of them. They both had well paying jobs, and apparently a rich old aunt who had been fond of his foster father had left them a fortune. However, this wasn't something that they flaunted. Everyone knew the family was well off, but nobody outside the family knew exactly how well off.

He opened the door and yelled, "I'm home!" He was greeted with only the echoes of his own voice, which was no great surprise. But he didn't care- he'd grown up in a house in which things were the same, and he was used to only having the music for his own company. It was nice having Vivi as well.

"Just ourselves, it appears." He remarked as he started making his way up the stairs. The grand piano was in one of the empty bedrooms, so he grabbed his amp, electric guitar and bass, hauling them all into the room. "I'm thinking of taking up drums. I could be a one man band then. Wait, no. My singing's dodgy at best. I could get you on vocals." He joked, plugging the cable for the guitar into the amp and then into the end of the guitar. "So, what do you want to play first?"

Joan Mercury


Joan blinked and her face showed a worried look as she heard the name Killoran. She nodded in agreement to Daniel's opinion about them. "I know, it is something we need to pay real attention to. But, yes, like you said, where else will they be safe?". She smiled when he sipped his coffee and liked it. She watched Kaitlin coming through the door and ordering from the other waitress. She nodded again with a smile, "This is why we are here, to make sure not just they safe but are doing well. As for going back, for the young ones it is best for them to go back, at least till the danger clear away". She than wondered in thoughts about their home , heaven. She won't lie, she do miss it and there they won't need hiding their powers and their true identity. "Hey, I won't mind going back any day, but I promised myself I will not let anything happen to those kids and us, even you".

Joan sighs and took a clean cloth and started cleaning the counter as there was no one else yet to serve. Most people now are going home for lunch or going to the restaurant nearby. This time the coffee shop had only her, Daniel and Kaitlin and the other waitress. But than she heard the bell on the door ring as another costumer entered the place. Joan's eyes widen as she recognized it was the new pediatrician that joined the town. It was not so bad, till she realized his name was Killoran, the family of the fallen angels which came to this town not so long ago.

Daniel leaned to Joan saying, "Joan. I don't want to panic you, but there's a certain fallen angel sitting a few seats away." Joan takes a deep breath, making herself calm and nodded. She whispered very silently to him, "I know....".
"Joan, I have to do something. Kaitlin's still here, and I don't think he's in Riversdale to sample the tourist life." . Now Joan realized Kaitlin is here too, of the kids they trying to protect. Now they really need to pay attention to this. She needs to stay close to Kaitlin, "I will watch Kaitlin, be careful Daniel....". When the waitress approached to bring Kaitlin's order she quickly sprinted to her and said, "It is okay, Jane, I will give it to her. Can you fill the coffee's machine? you know I am terrible at that....". The other waitress laughed and nodded. Joan took Kaitlin's drink and brought it to her table. She smiled, "Here you go, dear. How are you?". Smiled hoping Kaitlin will talk for a bit, most of the young angels like talking to Joan like a mother, Kaitlin is somehow more closed.

Kaitlin had taken a seat by the window of the cafe as she waited. It was her favorite spot in the sun and allowed her to look up at the sky which was where she really wanted to be though that couldn't happen often for sake of staying under the radar. It wasn't all bad, but then again, it wasn't too long ago before Kaitlin had flown down to earth to stay here. Flying was always something fun, free, and amazing.

Kaitlin looked away from the sunny sky to smile up at Joan. "Rather well, things are going good. Thank you for this by the way," Kaitlin says as she raises her coffee cup as she stands. She had seen the fellow come in, he looked different, and seemed to not be trying to hide it. She lifted her bag from the chair and swung it onto her shoulder, careful to make it not uncomfortable. "How're you doing yourself?" Kaitlin asks in a polite and friendly way. She wasn't going to skip out on being polite to Joan even if Joan didn't seem to mind much when she did forget to be polite.

Kaitlin took a small sip of her drink, savoring the taste for a moment as she waited for a response, her eyes right behind Joan on the fellow who Daniel seemed to be talking to. Was the man a fellow angel? A fallen one? A new friend of Daniel's? Probably not a friend considering the look Daniel had on his face. Maybe the man was an angel that Daniel knew and just had something against... or maybe the man was a fallen angel after all.

Kaitlin's eyes went back to Joan as she realized she had been staring and didn't want to seem rude, or have someone get the wrong idea. Things were going too well and it seems as if one mistake could make her picture crumble into so many pieces, there would be nothing left.

Kaitlin's phone vibrated in her pocket slightly though she ignored it. The only person that had her number that would be calling at this time would be her fake parents. Her father might want to ask her to pick something up from the store or to hurry home to talk about tonight or something, but would understand that Katy was talking with an adult and wouldn't get mad. He was a nice man and understanding even if he was a bit overprotective at times. It hurt Katy a bit to see the people having been manipulated to love the angels, to hide them. It was as if they were nothing but things that could be manipulated. Without them though, the angels would be caught and killed faster than any animal being hunted.

His feet pounded against the ground. He didn't have to push himself this hard. He was already a decent amount ahead of the others. But then again, he wasn't even pushing himself as hard as he could. This was his three-quarter pace, and the humans struggled to keep up with him, even when they were sprinting. He wasn't going to rein himself in anymore to make things easier for them.

It was no surprise when he crossed the finish line first. He was sufficiently out of breath to make the coach think that he had been pushing himself to his limit. "Good work, Killoran. I don't know what was in the water back in New York, but it's certainly made an excellent athlete out of you. We'd love to have you on the team." Zach grinned and nodded. "I'd love to be on it." The coach looked ecstatic and slapped him on the shoulder. "Go hit the showers. Training is on every day after school." Zach nodded and went into the changing rooms to change back into his normal clothes.

Twenty minutes later, he was dressed in a red and black checked shirt, black jeans and plain black Vans. What he really wanted to do was to stretch his wings and fly, but there was always a risk of him being spotted. And he doubted his ability to explain that. He was supposed to be tired, which ruled out going for a run. Besides, it was a tad bright outside, and he could feel a headache starting to come on.

An idea struck him, and he grinned. He'd seen the angels hanging out in a certain coffee shop, and he was pretty sure that one of the girls who worked there was an angel too. He headed for it, and grinned. Sure enough, one of the elder angels, his English teacher, was talking to a man- Hadriel. His eyes searched the shop, and saw one of them talking to the waitress. Perfect. He wasn't going to start anything- but if Hadriel, posing as his father, and the angel kicked off... Well, that was a different matter.

He walked over to the girl and slid into the booth, grinning at her and the waitress. "Hey. I'll take a spiced mocha, please, and something sweet. Whatever you recommend." He handed the menu to her and looked at the angel.

"You're Kaitlin, right? The name's Zach. Zach Killoran. I don't think we've been introduced. I just moved here earlier this week. You've been living here your whole life, right?" He grinned, knowing all too well that this wasn't true and wondering if she'd trip up over it.

Kaitlin looked over to Zach and gave a small smile then quickly turned her attention back to Joan. "I'm sorry, I'll swing by later and we can talk again," Kaitlin says politely to Joan before retaking her seat somewhat reluctant though she didn't show it. "Ah, yeah, kind of. I mean, I was born on the east coast, my family moved over here so my dad could get this job at the hospital. I don't really remember the move all that much, so really I have lived here all the time," Kaitlin says with a smile as she stirs her drink carefully.

She had watched the city of Riversdale ever since she heard of the possibility of the angels coming here and had noticed when Zach arrived. She had never thought anything of it but maybe there was a connection, or maybe just destiny... whatever that had to do with anything.

"And yes, I'm Kaitlin. Kaitlin Alvord. It's nice to meet you. How do you like Riversdale so far? Find anything fun or interesting quite yet? It's is a small town and all," Kaitlin says with a smile as she took a sip of her drink.

Kaitlin glances at her clock and notices the time with some surprise. "Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry, I'd love to talk but I have to get home soon. I live just a couple blocks away if you want to walk and talk," Kaitlin offers as she moves to stand away, seeing another waitress who had heard Zach's order bringing it over.

The fellow didn't seem so bad, rather nice in fact. He sent of the sort of vibe an angel did, but also something that a fallen angel had. It was as if he wasn't sure what he was making Kaitlin unsure as well. He could just be an angel in disguise, or maybe a fallen angel in disguise, trying to blend in like the angels were.

Kaitlin looked to the door, weighing her options as she adjusted her backpack again, feeling it tugging at her wing again for some reason. She needed a new backpack, one that was more so a messenger bag than a backpack. Without it, it would just be incredibly uncomfortable and make no sense at all.

Her phone rang again, seemingly more persistent. It was annoying and made Kaitlin want to answer it, but she withheld. She could not be rude to someone she just met, her father would understand as would her mother when her father told her mother if they got worried enough. It was cute and funny in their own little way, the concern that they shared for their daughter that wasn't really theirs.
