Personality: Katherina is a quiet girl who likes to keep to herself. She always feels like the odd one of any group she places herself in because she is, she's the weird one, the one person that can't be normal among a group of her own kind. Katherina has this intimidating aura about her that fends off people, making them weary, uncomfortable and scared around her. She doesn't talk much and likes quiet, not the animated chatter of conversation. Yet even though she doesn't seem like it Katherina is a very kind and gentle person with a surprisingly hot temper. She's angered easily but knows how to hid her emotions behind a stoic mask. Katherina is very protective, if she sees someone of her own kind getting hurt she will defend that person. She is a very intellegnt girl and wiser then her years.

History: Katherina was orphaned at a young age after a horrible incident. Her parents had died in a arson fire to her dad's company building, her parents and twenty other's died that day. Katherina's parents were very successful in life and left all their earnings to their only child, Katherina. Though she wouldn't be able to have access to those funds until she was eight-teen. After the death of her parents Katherina was sent to live with her Aunt Carrie, who was actually a scientist of the government facility. At first Carrie was oblivious to Katherina unique abilities. Katherina has always known about her powers and has kept them secret from everyone. No one suspected sweet little lovely Katherina Everlight was of a different species. All that changed though when one summer day fourteen year old Katherina and her Aunt went to the grocery store to grab ingredients for Katherina's birthday cake. The store was robbed that day and a gun pointed at Katherina and Carrie. From the fear of the event Katherina had no control when she let her animal counter-part take over and shifted into a white wolf and attacked the robber. Her Aunt was shocked and scared of Katherina, locking her up where Carrie worked. Katherina hasn't seen her Aunt since that day. The only thing she focused on was escaping and when she did she ran.

Reyna
Image

Today was not starting out very well for the fluffy white kitten. She hated being picked up against her well and so when Jennora picked her up, she hissed and tried to claw her way down. "Hey there. Not exactly sure who you are, but you clearly don't know how to control your changing DNA." Jennora said with a bright smile. "Don't worry it gets better honey." The words stung, Reyna was hurt considering the fact that Jennora was the one who rescued her and it was in this very form that she and the older woman had become acquainted. Reyna stopped struggling and walked away with her tail between her legs, about to head upstairs to find Sapphire when Jason came down carrying a small, floppy eared puppy. Reyna jumped out of the way just in time as she was about to get kicked and hissed, swiping at the air where he had stood only seconds before.

Reyna hopped down the staircase, fur standing on end as she skittered across the floor, straight into Sapphire's legs. "Reyna!" The kitten was pleased that at least someone recognized her and her hisses turned into purrs, she bumped her head against Sapphire's palm lovingly, her tail swishing lazily back and forth. “How long ago did you change? Gosh, it must be terrible not knowing when it’s going to happen.” Reyna responded with a clipped, "mew," as if this answered Sapphire's question. It was awful and it was terribly painful, the only thing worse than randomly turning into an animal was getting stuck with a few of its attributes when she finally turned human again.

“Perhaps we should go somewhere else.” The fur ball responded with another meow, but Jason stepped forward, blocking the only exit to the kitchen that didn't lead outside and Reyna was not allowed outside. She nudged her head against Sapphire's foot and then hopped up a few steps to the puppy Jason was putting on the floor. She sniffed him suspiciously, walking in circles around him before pouncing playfully at his tail. She didn't know who the puppy was, but he seemed awfully familiar. It was at that moment that the scent of bacon wafted into her nose and while she remembered that she agreed to go somewhere with Sapphire, the temptation of food and the growling of her tiny stomach was distracting.

The kitten darted across the floor, nearly hitting another person and Reyna mentally scolded herself for allowing her animal instincts to take over. She was suddenly picked up by the scruff of her neck and hissed in protest, but was ultimately carried out of the kitchen and placed on the couch in the living room. Reyna looked up to see who her captor was to find the girl who she referred to as The Ghost because she was was hardly ever seen and if you were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of her, once you blinked she would be gone. Needless to say Reyna was not surprised when the girl, she believed her name was Katherina, disappeared after a quick scolding about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Reyna settled onto the couch, her wide kitty cat eyes widening even more when Katherina returned and sat next to her for a few minutes, silently sketching. "What do you think?" Came from the ghost of a person beside her and Reyna turned to stare at her reflection, she jumped and hissed, darting behind a pillow before the girl remembered herself and the fact that she was not actually a cat. Slowly, she made her way back and touched the paper with a small, soft, furry paw and gave a mew of approval before hissing at the barking that came from the kitchen.

Christopher
Image

"I guess I'll go into town to get food today." Chris was about to open his mouth to tell Jennora what a wonderful idea that was when she beat him to it, "And before you say anything, you aren't coming with me. There's other things you have to do." He frowned and sighed, knowing she was right while he glared at the list of things that he needed to do that the two had comprised the night before. "I just don't feel safe with you going into town without me," even if she was taking two of their best and most experienced shifters. Speaking of Mikuo and Jason, the two emerged from the staircase, one after the other. Except, one was carrying a floppy eared puppy and the other had his hands shoved in his pockets.
“Might I ask where you’ll be taking me Jennora? It’d be nice to know my destination before I go.”
"Jennora would like to take you and Jason to the town to do some shopping today," Chris replied for Jennora, hoping Mikuo would be willing to go. Chris knew that anywhere Jennora went, Jason would follow. The woman could jump off a metaphorical cliff and her brother wouldn't even hesitate to go after her.

He tried not to twitch when Mikuo began to flirt with Jennora. He felt protective over the woman for reasons he couldn't decide and even though the two were not exclusive their feelings for each other were quite obvious. Chris's attention drifted for a second before a strong, melodic voice floated towards his ears. "Congratulations, you have once again managed to drag me from my beautiful bed and even more stunning dream about Rihanna's latest scandal. So what are we doing today?"
A small smile played on the man's lips at Lottie's words. He had never met a shape shifter that was so concerned with the pop culture of the human world.

"We have a long list of things we need to accomplish today and I'm going to need your help. Oh and spoiler alert, Rihanna didn't win a Grammy." He had seen the headline in People last time he had been in town, but that was two weeks ago and he had only gotten a glimpse at the magazine. In fact, Chris wasn't even sure if it had been about Rihanna in the first place but he did see her name somewhere next to it.

((OOC: I'm really sorry for any mistakes, it's late, I'm tired and I wanted to post something for you all since you guys are so awesome))

Jason happened to walk into the kitchen just as Christopher was telling Mikuo what Jennora's plans were. He smiled at the excitement that he was going to do today, completely forgetting he was holding a puppy. He groaned as Dyson bit his hand and jumped out of it. Dyson barked at him on the ground before running of into the living room. Jason ignored him as he continued on into the kitchen.

He slapped Chris on the back playfully. "Hello." He said before moving onto his sister, he hugged her from behind and picked her up, laughing as she screamed at him to put her down. Only when he did he gave her a big peck on the cheek. "Oh come on, I know you love me!"

"Shut up Jason! Jennora told him, he only laughed and threw his hands up in defeat. "So what are we doing today?" He asked happily. Jason looked up for a moment to see Katherina and felt the butterflies start in his stomach, making him sick. He quickly looked down at the floor before looking back up at Mikuo, Jennora and Chris. He noticed Lottie was there as well. "Hey sexy" He told her with a flirty smile. Only to get punched by his sister. "Ow.. Gosh." He said rubbing his arm.




Image

Jennora smiled at Mikuo's compliment. "Of course I'm fun to be with." She said as she rocked herself back and forth, bumping into Mikuo on purpose. "I'm just so pretty." She said, sounding full of herself. It didn't last long though, "Nah, just kidding! But I hear I'm fun to be around!" She hoped she was, otherwise she'd have a lot of people person problems. The three P's. Fantastic.

Jennora did not like being picked up by her brother, and when he kissed her she wanted to smack him. Though she resisted the urge not too, instead she watched as others came out before answering Christopher's first remark to herself. "I know you feel safer if your with me, but we don't really have time for that. Why do I get the feeling this is because you want to spend time with me?" She laughed at that. "How about we have a slumber party in my room tonight?" Jennora purposely made it sound very wrong

Jennora laughed at the look that Jason gave her and shook her head, looking around for a final attempt at finding something she wanted, though at this point it seemed like she couldn't find anything she wanted. Jennora was a super picky eater, so if there was nothing she liked, she wouldn't eat. Plain and simple.

Jennora turned to Mikuo and Jason. "If your willing to go I'll be ready in two hours. If any of you need me, I'll be in my room." She gave the two a smile and waved at Chris before taking a piece of bacon and heading back upstairs. She passed by the living room on her way and peaked over at Katherina's art piece. She leaned over the back of the couch and pet both Dyson and Reyna as she talked to Katherina. "I think it looks stunning. What are your plans today? She asked yawning into the back of the couch.



Image

Dyson didn't like being squeezed to death so he bit his brother's hand. Not hard enough to leave a bark, but sure as hell hard enough to be dropped. Dyson saddly, wasn't a cat at the moment and landed hard on his ass. Though he walked it off like it was nothing. He spotted Reyna and made his way over to her. Not realizing that his large puppy ears were a bit long for him, he tripped over them each second.

When he finally got to the living room, he was standing right in front of the couch, he looked up at ow tall it was, and decided that he wouldn't hurt himself. Instead he pawed at Katherina's legs, making sure not to stratch her as he did. He turned his head for a moment to notice that Sapphire was on the other couch. He still hadn't told anyone that she was his sister, and nobody ever asked so Dyson didn't think it was a big deal. He wondered if she knew that the DNA she was given was his.

Dyson turned back to Katherina when he was magically picked up and placed in her lap. He quickly moved over to Reyna. He really liked the girl, but would never tell her in person, and he tried really hard not to show any signs of affection towards her in person as well.

Though right now... Was a completely different story. He licked her nose and around her mouth before nugging against her, as if to hug her. Being a cat, he was prepared for an attack, though some cats were friendly enough to play with him like this. He could always turn into a kitten as well though, but he liked being a puppy. That or a very large cat. Like a white tiger, or a baby white tiger. Those were his favorites.

((OOC: I'm so sorry if I forgot someone if i did please just jump in anywhere :). ))

Jennora smiled and thought about what Katherina said as she walked away. Jennora looked down at the kitten and the puppy. "Reyna if you want, you can hide away in my room." She told the girl before Lennox came in.

Jennora waved at Lennox after giving her little brother a concerning look due to the fact that he was clawing at the couch. Christopher wouldn't like that one bit. Dyson stopped after realizing he was being stared at, making Jennora laugh at her brother before heading upstairs to fetch the keys and her purse. She had a golden credit card from her family. They were hiding on the other side of the country, there was too many of them to come here with her. Last she heard her little sister was on her way over, though it had been weeks since she had last heard from the girl, Jennora was beginning to get worried.

She knew what was happening here, the government probably had gotten ahold of her little sister... Jennora had to go back there, and she had to do it alone. This would be tough, but she was too stubborn and loyal to let someone else help her get her sister out. Family sticks together, no matter what.

Jennora knew that Dyson could never go back to a place like that and Jason didn't care, he was an ass like that. If she were to take one other person it would have to be someone that she could trust to do the right thing.

Image


Image

Jason couldn't help but over hear what Lennox and Christopher were talking about. He literally laughed at loud, they were talking about money! "I love how you two always forget that money is never an issue with us. Or at least if you would take my money." His family was rich, and always sent them money, it was a little convenient for him, but he loved it!

Jason looked at Christopher when he spoke next. "You know, I will have no control over how much stuff Jenn comes back with. Maybe you should go with her, I'll do something else on that list." He suggested, he trusted Christopher with Jennora, so he could stand being away from her for a while.

((OOC: I apologize for how short it is. Running out of time.))

"Don't you think the goverment would be tracking that? Its not normal for large amounts of money to be transferred to an accountant in a small town, a shop's earnings are less noticeable and less of a risk of the goverment finding us and your parents, it doesn't matter how smart they are about it neither" Katherina had told Jason, making him laugh at her stupidity, then again not everyone knew about his family so he couldn't exactly blame her. Not even Christopher knew about his family. Hell, he wasn't sure if Jennora or Dyson knew.

"You seriously think my family is that stupid, honey?" Jason said to Katherina. "Our family has been hiding from the government for years. My entire family is Changelings, I think they know how to get away from the government. Plus, they've always been putting the same amount of money in our accounts since we were kids. We're spoiled little rich kids who have a shit ton of money but never really spend it unless we really want too. Jason shook his head and laughed again, leaning on the counter as he did. He looked at Christopher as he spoke as well. "I'm a lot more skilled then you realize, Christopher. Getting away from the government is too easy. My key to it, is to never get attached to someone you could lose." He told Christopher, the only person he really cares about is his sister, he has a few feelings for others but nothing compares to the love he has for his twin sister.

He laughed at Christopher's comment on Jennora's stubbornness. "You all are making my morning a little more exciting. I don't really want to go into town today. I don't feel like turning into a car and having people touch me in places I don't want to be touched in." Jason said as he walked away. He didn't leave anyone, any time to answer anything of what he said. A few minutes after he left he saw Katherina go outside, and decided to go talk to Jennora.

His sister had just gotten back from her room and was sitting in the living room with Sapphire, Reyna and Clarie. "What is this? A girl's party.. Oh no wait, Dyson's here. Well I guess it is a girl's party." He smiled at his brother as the puppy slowly changed into a big black scary wolf and barked loud at Jason, almost making him jump.


Image

Image
Jennora was having a pretty good day so far, she already had a plan to get her little sister back and was heading down into the living room to hang out with others before she decided to leave. She wasn't worried about getting back into the government to find her little sister, the only thing that sort of got to her was the fact that she might have to get other Changelings out as well, her little sister seemed to care too much about others then Jennora would hope for. The whole "we can come back later" won't exactly work on the woman.

Jennora smiled when Mikuo came in, she had thought since day one that he looked almost incidental to Jason. That was probably why she enjoyed being around him so much. "So what are you girls up to?" [/b] He asked after playing with Sapphire a little bit. "Not much, just waiting for you to get ready. I think I might want to head out a little earlier. I want to go on a small shopping spree."

Jennora looked at Clarie as she walked into the living room and sat down across from the couch that Jennora was on. She then looked at the small puppy on the couch next to her and picked him up, setting him on her lap and starting to pet him. He playfully bit her hand and growled, making her fake growl back at him. When she was done playing with him she patted his back and looked up at Clarie smiling. [i] "So, uh cold weather we're having today, right?"
She had asked Jennora.

"I suppose, it's warmer then it's been in a while. That is why I decided to wear a dress today." She shrugged. "Clarie, would you like to join me in my shopping spree this morning? I'll buy you whatever your heart desires, I would just like another girl with me." Then she looked at Mikuo. "No offense."

Jason walked in a second after she was done talking and she smiled at him, and then laughed and moaned an "Ow" as the puppy on her lap dramatically grew in under 5 seconds. She hated that Dyson was so good at that. "Jason your so mean to Dyson, what did he ever do to you?"

"Oh I'm just kidding! Calm down Jenn." Jason told her before taking a breath in and sitting next to her. He looked at her as he spoke next, the look on his face almost creeped her out. "So I don't want to go into town, can you just take Christopher? Think of it as a date... With Mikuo... And possibly Clarie. Might as well throw Reyna and Dyson in too. Then it could be a triple date!" He said the last part all excited, making her laugh and shake her head. "Whatever, fine. Though I don't think Reyna is ready to go out yet." Jennora looked at Reyna. "Sorry dear, I care about you too much."

"Overprotective bitch.." She heard Jason muffle under his breath and slapped him in the back of the head. Calling him an ass as she did.


Image

Image
Dyson watched everyone around him and loved the extra attention that Jennora had given him. After Jason came in however he quickly changed his appearance into a black wolf because he knew it would scare his brother at least somewhat, even if he didn't show it on the outside, Dyson had a feeling on the inside it would scare him a little.

Dyson moved from Jennora's lap whenever she said 'Ow' and moved over to Reyna, licking her cheek before walking away into the front room and laying on the floor. He didn't understand his feelings for Reyna, but he knew he was probably annoying the girl so he thought it would be best for him if he just left. He watched others pass by, but always kept his head on the floor and his eyes up. Soon enough he found his eyes shutting and himself drifting off to sleep, remaining in this form.

Reyna
Image

Reyna's mind drifted for a moment before Mikou answered her question. “Pretty good. Woke up a bit too early for my liking but other than that it was sound.” That was good, at least someone in the house slept soundly. “I also slept quite pleasantly. There was this one nightmare… No its nothing.” Sapphire's voice was so soft, Reyna had almost missed what she said. "Do you want to talk about it?" She asked quietly, her tone and expression were both serious; when suddenly Jason popped into the room and began to tease them all.

So I don't want to go into town, can you just take Christopher? Think of it as a date... With Mikuo... And possibly Clarie. Might as well throw Reyna and Dyson in too. Then it could be a triple date!" Reyna's hopes soared when Jason suggested she go along with them to the town, she didn't even notice the part he threw in about making it a double date with Dyson. While Dyson was nice, Reyna wasn't sure of her feelings for him, or anyone for that matter. The only person Reyna knew that she was really comfortable with was Sapphire and sometimes Jennora. "Whatever, fine. Though I don't think Reyna is ready to go out yet." The look Jennora gave her seemed concerned. "Sorry dear, I care about you too much."

"Yeah, whatever," Reyna bristled, although it was probably for the best. She should be used to getting denied entry to the human world, however it stung a bit every time they said no. It wasn't her fault she was defective; her genetics just sucked. Reyna hugged her knees and stared at the carpet. At that moment Dyson came up to her and licked her cheek, she scratched behind his ear in return and watched him walk out. Lucky, the girl thought, wiping wolf saliva off of her face. He has control over his shape shifting abilities. Maybe she could ask him how he did it?

Christopher
Image

Chris tuned out Jason's rant about money and being a rich, spoiled, brat. He was done with listening to that boy preach to the choir. He looked up when Jason said his name, listening once more as Jason's little schpiel came to an end. "I'm a lot more skilled then you realize, Christopher. Getting away from the government is too easy. My key to it, is to never get attached to someone you could lose."

"Don't use my full name." He hated his full first name, Chris preferred his nickname because Christopher sounded so.... Stuck up. Like a spoiled rich kid, which is exactly what he no longer was. Chris sighed and ran a hand through his hair, giving Katherina an apologetic look before she left with her dangerously sharp knives. Chris was surprised she hadn't impaled Jason with them. As for what he said about not getting attached to anyone... That was hard"You all are making my morning a little more exciting. I don't really want to go into town today. I don't feel like turning into a car and having people touch me in places I don't want to be touched in."

"Yeah, well convince your sister otherwise and I'd be happy to go in your place." He loved going to the town and seeing the normal people live their generic lives, unknowing to the dangers that lurked just beyond the forest. People were so peaceful when they thought their lives are in good hands.

Chris
Image

"Oh my, it seems like three of our beloved members have unexpectedly disappeared." Chris said to no one in particular, he had figured this would happen sooner or later, that the siblings would up and leave when they grew bored with what was going on. Oh well, Chris didn't need that type of attitude in the household, he had enough problems trying to keep Lottie in the house and getting Claire to speak up.

"Well since we're all obviously so anxious to leave, how about we all go into the town?" He suddenly decided. It was a risk, Chris knew. Such a big group going into town, but they could pretend to go to the local boarding school. No one really ever questioned those kid's presences; plus there were a ton of spare uniforms in the closet that they had collected over the past few years. So unless the boarding school had updated its uniforms, they would hopefully blend in.

"If everyone could please gather in the kitchen so we can talk about our outing!" Chris called up the stairs and poked his head into the living room. "Would you guys mind coming to the kitchen for a minute?" He went to sit at the table and waited for everyone to gather around. They would have to come up with an alibi in case something happened or they ran into someone that actually attended the boarding school (which would be unlikely considering that those kids considered themselves too classy to go to the town).

Claire was so quiet Chris had hardly noticed her until he looked up from the table. "Oh have you been here the whole time?" He asked her, hoping he didn't somehow offend the girl by implying he hadn't seen her.

Reyna
Image
Reyna stood up and held her hand out to Sapphire, leading the girl into the kitchen. Going into town? Her heart rate began to pick up at the prospect that she would actually get to see the humans! Reyna tried to calm herself down, if she grew too excited she would unwillingly shift and blow it before she could step onto real pavement. "Aren't you excited?" She asked Sapphire, hoping the answer was yes. Had Sapphire ever left the house before? Reyna wondered, trying to think back. She couldn't remember, really.

"Reyna will you go get Katherina for me?" Chris asked and Reyna nodded her head, dropping Sapphire's hand and going outside to the shed where she hoped Katherina would be. Reyna pushed the door open and stopped, the smell of blood and dead animal brought back bad memories. She felt dizzy as she stepped inside, her bare feet feeling cold on the hard floor of the shed. "Katherina?" She looked around, spotting the girl who sported an arm full of meat. "Um," Reyna stated nervously as she caught site of the sharp knives. "We're uh-having a meat-meeting about our alibi for going into town. Chris wants you to join us in the kitchen when you can."

She stepped back outside into the grass that was still slick with dew and gasped in the chilly mountain air. It was all she could not to vomit as she made her way back to the house. Reyna stepped inside and wiped her dirty feet on the mat before stepping onto the tiled floor of the kitchen. The smell of blood was still thick in her memory as she sat down next to Claire at the table.
