Image βœ– Physical Description/Clothing Preference βœ–: ||Appearance|| Raine is a slim yet fit girl slightly taller than average for her age. Her skin is light and her hair is black, running down to her waist, and usually tied into a ponytail or worn straight. Her bangs cover most of her forehead, and they accent her purple eyes. Her legs are long and a bit toned from her practicing Tae Kwon Do.

||Clothing|| She was taking a nap in her school attire when she awoke in Noctrosa, so that is what she's currently wearing. She will wear anything comfortable though.

βœ– Birthmark/Piercing/Tattoo/Scar/Noticeable Features βœ–: None.

βœ– Use A Weapon? βœ–: None currently, but she would prefer an edged weapon if she had to fight.

βœ– Phobosβœ–: Raine has Developmental Apraxia of Speech, or DAS for short. Due to this, she eventually developed Glossophobia - The fear of public speaking, or speaking in general.

Raine's greatest fear, source of frustration, and almost all of her negativity comes from her DAS. She fears trying to speak because she could terribly embarrass herself and bring more bullying/teasing towards her. Her abilities are sound related, and she can manipulate sound in ways like:
  • Increase/Decrease the volume or intensity of nearby sounds
  • Sonic bursts
  • Hear sounds at greater distances and be able to endure loud noises better

The draw back to her abilities is that teammates can easily be caught in the crossfire due to the way sound travels, and in areas with little to no air, her powers are unusable (sound needs air to travel through). Also, loud noises aren't exactly good for situations where you want to keep quiet.

βœ– Shade βœ–: Raine's Shade is a large black parrot named Desmond. It's large enough for Raine to ride on comfortably, but any more passengers could be difficult. Desmond is 5x more loud and talkative than Raine is, and unlike other parrots, it doesn't repeat everything it hears; it actually speaks fluently, which is a good and a bad thing. The problem with Desmond is that he has a hard time keeping quiet, making him and Raine complete opposites; Desmond is more like the life of the party, while Raine is the person who wouldn't even go to that party. Desmond still gives helpful advice and lends a hand when needed, but he can be annoying at times. A few other facts about him is:

  • Can read Raine's thoughts and body language well enough to speak for her if needed
  • If making physical contact with Raine, he can act as an amplifier of sorts for her sound abilities
  • Can fly as well as any other bird
  • Desmond isn't a jerk, but he gets full of himself sometimes

βœ– Hobbies/Skills βœ–:
  • Practicing Tae Kwon Do
  • Playing Violin
  • Quick Thinker
  • Can write, text, and read faster than the average person (due to the fact that is the main way she communicates)
  • Cooking

βœ– Personality βœ–: Raine is a quiet and helpful girl with a (usually) good heart. She tries not to speak when she can, and usually isolates herself if she thinks that a lot of social interactivity is about to take place. She holds others needs before hers, and tries to come up with the best solution for everyone. She's always at conflict between being the helpful social person she really is, and the isolation she tries to create due to her conditions and phobia, which can make her seem frustrated at times. Actually, she's incredibly frustrated with her disorder, and may accidentally snap at someone if her temper is lost. When she cools down, she'll quickly apologize though. Naturally, Raine is very quick to act, because she doesn't have words to rely on. Her actions definitely speak louder than her words.




Image☒ Likes ☒: Practicing to get past her speech disorder, playing violin, helping others, reading, Tae Kwon Do, the rain, spending time with friends.

☒ Dislikes ☒: Being bullied/teased for her speech disorder, her Shade when he gets loud, being unable to help, bees, wasps, scorpions, or anything with stingers.

☒ Flaws ☒:
  • Easily gets frustrated with her limitations
  • Her nerves get the better of her sometimes
  • Any situation where verbal skills are required, she can't do it
  • Her isolation issues makes it tough for her to get close to others

☒Other Fears☒:
  • Any bug/insect with stingers
  • Failing to make a difference
  • Giving in to her disorder
  • Death

☒Secrets ☒:
  • Though she isolates herself a lot, she wants to be more social
  • She's considered suicide in the past
  • Has seriously injured a bully in the past out of rage
  • Has a really bad temper that rarely surfaces




Image☒Bio ☒: Raine was born into a happy family as an only child. Her infancy was a good one with no problems, but her parents started to get worried when she still hasn't said her first word at 3 years old. After several tests at a nearby hospital, doctors diagnosed her with Developmental Apraxia of Speech. This was the beginning of Raine's hardships; a life where communication was key, but she was incapable of it. Her parents tried her best to raise her with love and kindness, but it was hard if they didn't always know what Raine wanted. Soon, they came up with a communication system for her; note cards. Everywhere Raine went, she always carried a small note pad and a pencil, so she could write down what she wanted to say. This required for her to learn how to read and write well, because that was her main form of communication.

When school began, her parents were conflicted; send her to a normal school, or a "special" one. After much debate, they decided a normal school would be best for their daughter's self esteem. After all, she could read and write at a much higher level than anyone her age. The first couple of years went well, but soon other students began to catch on that Raine just wasn't a quiet girl in class; she was physically incapable of speaking. Soon, ridicule and teasing came her way. It grew worse as she got older, and Raine grew frustrated and depressed about her situation. What could she do when she was being teased and bullied, tell them to stop? One day, a bully got a hold of her note pad and ripped it to shreds. This caused Raine to skip school that day, running out into the rain sobbing. The police eventually found the soaked girl and brought her home. Her parents were deeply worried, and Raine didn't want to go through the hardships anymore. At this point, Raine became depressed, and it freaked her parents out when she told them she didn't want to live anymore.

Her father came home one day and said he had three solutions for an outlet; Tae Kwon Do for stress relief and self defense, learning to play the violin as a hobby and a way to express herself, and speech therapy. Raine attended all three for some time, and soon grew to enjoy these. In speech therapy, she decided to try and overcome her disorder, and never give in to it. She played her violin whenever she was down, or wanted to impress her few, close friends. Tae Kwon Do was a good stress outlet, and she enjoyed it.

One day in middle school, some of her bullies approached her, calling her by her school-wide nickname "Silent Treatment". They continued to tease her until she snapped. All she wanted at that moment was to let someone else know the pain and frustration she felt of not being able to speak. Using what she learned while letting out a cry of sorrow and frustration, she spun on her feet and roundhouse kicked the "leader" of the group straight in the jaw, breaking it and sending him flying back against the lockers. Everyone else immediately scattered, and the bully couldn't speak or eat properly until his jaw healed. She was no longer bullied, but now everyone in school was afraid to approach her, and she was completely ignored. Raine felt alone, but soon grew accustomed to it; it was better this way. She didn't have to worry about communicating with anyone if no one was around for her to speak to. Deep inside though, she ached for some social interaction, and her few close friends she had weren't always around. This had her feeling conflicted for quite some time.

Her life continued this for several years until in her last year of high school. School lasted half a day, and she came home and decided to take a nap. When she awoke, she wasn't in her room...

☒ Mental Evaluation ☒: "Raine is a good girl with good intentions, but her... limitations seem to get in the way of her showing it. She has a lot of pent up frustration, but she seems to be holding up well. Earlier reports show that she was depressed for some time, but it's been replaced by willpower to combat against her disorder. However, she seems to also have developed Glossophobia, and deeply fears trying to speak to others. This conflict inside of her is a massive conduit of stress and it is detrimental to her mental and even physical health. I recommend trying to slowly expose her to social interaction, to help her overcome her Glossophobia. If we don't, overcoming her disorder will be impossible. Continue to take Tae Kwon Do lessons, and going to speech therapy, and we might see a change for the better. If that doesn't work, we may have to put her on medication".

"I hope it doesn't come to that doctor, Raine is a strong girl, she's just struggling right now. She'll pull through it, I know she will."

"I would like to believe you Mr. Dionne, but she needs help from others now more than ever, she can't continue to go on like this... understand?"

"...Yes doctor."

"Good. I wish her the best of luck. I'm surprised she hasn't developed high blood pressure or separated herself from society completely."

☒ Other ☒:
- Is really good at charades and reading body language

So begins...

"This has to be a dream."

Eris had delivered her message and left a few minutes ago. Raine however, still hadn't budged from her bed yet. She was still trying to piece this all together. Each of Eris' words hit her like a brick; beings of great power? A world where nightmares come true? It couldn't be real. In disbelief, Raine reached and pinched her arm as hard as she could. A small hiss of pain from her lips and the stinging sensation confirmed it was not a dream, it was real.

She got off the bed and began to idly wander, looking for somewhere safe; if this was a world where your nightmares could come true, she needed to find some form of safety. As she walked, it was ominously quiet, and no one seemed to be around. The silence and the sound of her footsteps only seemed to put her on edge. "Okay Raine, stay calm..." She thought. "There has to be a way out of this place. Just... think. Find somewhere safe, then come up with a plan."

She eventually found herself walking through a graveyard. The girl felt uncomfortable as she passed each stone, and it reminded her what Eris said earlier.

"Try and die bravely, will you?"

Raine shuddered at the thought of some monster showing up and killing her. Do these graves belong to people who may have been here before?

Once past the graveyard, a medium sized chapel's doors was in front of her. If there was a safe place, she hoped this was it. She pushed open the doors as quietly as she could, hoping not to alert anything that may have been nearby. Two steps inside, she was already fascinated with the decor and size of the place. How was it so much bigger inside? Each footstep echoed more than she wanted it to, but it felt... calm inside; almost like a sanctuary of safety. That didn't mean to let her guard down though.

" HELLOOOOOOooooooooo?"

Raine let out a startled gasp as she heard a voice echo throughout the building. There was someone else here? She walked as quietly as she could to find the source of the noise. Hoping the source was friendly, she peeked her head around the corner, and saw someone repeatedly hitting their head against the back of a bench as they sat there, the sound of the dull impact echoing throughout the sanctuary.

"Who is that? Maybe I should go talk to... wait... my notepad!"

Raine pat herself down until she found a small notepad and a pencil in her skirt pocket of her uniform. Sighing with relief, she approached the person from behind slowly, readying to defend herself if he was insane or something.

She stopped momentarily however, as her stomach began to churn and she felt her Glossophobia kicking in. She tried her best to overpower it; the weight of this situation was more important than fearing to talk to somebody. Besides, it was only one person... who probably wants to kill her...

Her heart pounded in her chest with tension as she slowly reached to tap him on his shoulder to get his attention.

Alexander Dalton


Alexander was starting to wonder if he was alone. This did not sink in too well. I should find at least someone, I might go crazy staying in a place like this alone. He stretched his arms above his head and yawned. He had forgotten he had only just woke up what, a few minutes ago?

Blinking the sleep out of his eyes finally, he froze in realization that there was another presence in the massive room. His body went ridged as he breathed out heavily. Eris said this place is dangerous right? could whatever else that just came in be here to kill me? wait. Shit! its already behind me!?!? am I going to die here? without a fight!?! He was close to doing something rash when he felt a tap on his shoulder. Blinking, he took a deep breath and let it out slowly. must be friendly then. why would something trying to kill you just tap your shoulder.

Calmly, Alex turned to face what was apparently a girl that seemed around his age. Sheepishly, he responded to her after what seemed like a very long minute.

"H-Hey there. . . I'm guessing you met Eris too? "

Raine released the breath she didn't know she was holding. Good, he didn't look like he meant her any harm. Actually, judging on the question he just asked, he was in the same boat as her. She nodded in response to his question.

She walked around the bench and stood in front of him, then pulled out her notepad and pencil. She had some questions for him, and hopefully he'd be able to help. Before the pencil touched the paper, her stomach began to churn again, her lifelong phobia reminding her of it's existence. She swallowed hard and tried to push the fear down. This was not the time to be freaking out; her life could be at stake.

With an exhale she wrote: "Yes, I met Eris, but I don't know how I got here. I walked around a little and I found this place. Do you know where we are, or what to do?"

She thought for a second on how weird he might find her for writing notes to him instead of speaking, so she added,"I also have a disorder where I can't form words to speak, so i'm sorry if this is weird to you... D:"

She looked up from the notepad and looked into his navy blue eyes, which made her a bit uncomfortable once more. Sucking it up, she turned the pad around and held it up for him to read it.

Alastair stared blankly, a hand pressed firmly against the bone white tree, the unfamiliar texture of it causing the word he heard earlier to strike even harder. This was not the world he was from, nor was it a dream. He thought it was one of his nightmares to start with. The woman with grey skin and wings claiming to be a goddess of discord. Her appearance alone at the foot of his bed was almost enough to send Alastair running for the hills, and now thinking back on it all he could only shiver and turn his gaze to landscape around him

Striding slowly away from the bed, the novelty of the fact he awoke fully clothed and booted turned into gratitude as he could feel under his boots that the ground was hard and unforgiving. " Damn that Eris.. i am given clothes but no form of sanctuary" he muttered to himself as he scanned around and took note of a hill, the high ground would give him a better view and maybe help gain his bearings.

Having hit his full stride now Alastair was making ground with some pace, but constantly his eyes were scanning around, he was still on edge and not about to let his guard down any time soon. He felt a sinking feeling start to set in as he was at the base of the hill now. What if something was on the other side?, he was walking blind, but the potential benefit of the vantage point was overcoming that small doubt. Using all the muscles in his legs to power up the side of the hill, he watched with anticipation as the other side slowly come into view. Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Roof, Roof? " Is that a bloody chapel?" he questioned, Standing with a questioning look. Better that nothing he thought, It was still a distance but semblance of anything he recognized was useful.

Carefully traversing down the slope, he soon found himself moving with a renewed vigor as the chapel gave him an idea, people, maybe he was to quick earlier to curse Eris but he was still reserving judgement. When he finally was getting closer he cupped his hands round his mouth and shouted " Anyone here?" he said listening carefully for any semblance of a response

Raine was holding up the notepad for a few seconds before she heard the sound of someone's voice outside. She wasn't sure what they were saying but it sounded like it was coming from outside of the front of the chapel. She held her notepad up for 3 more seconds before she pocketed it, hoping that the man she wrote it for had enough time to read it. Her head turned towards the direction of the noise as her body tensed up once more. Was this voice friendly as well?

Raine's eyes quickly scanned the room for anything she could use to defend herself in case it was some kind of monster. Her eyes eventually fell on a metal decanter, and she quickly grabbed it off the table it was on. She then turned and looked at the man, making eye contact with him, then nodding her head towards the direction of the door to indicate "we should check that out". She then put her finger to her lips and said "Shhhhh." If there was a monster outside, they should check it out quietly to not alert it of their presence.

She slowly walked to the front chapel doors, trying to be as quiet as possible, feeling her heart picking up pace again. She stopped and turned to see if the man was with her; she rather do this with someone else than alone.

"Yes, I met Eris, but I don't know how I got here. I walked around a little and I found this place. Do you know where we are, or what to do?"

The notepad had caused Alex to raise an eyebrow at first, up until the girl explained her disorder. Considering what Eris had said, it became apparent that every "normal" person he was going to meet was going to have some dominate fear. He looked away for a moment, closed his eyes and pinched his brow. He considering this, Alex had a thought. Didn't Eris say something about our fear helping us survive? Since he was having trouble recalling what she had said, he dismissed it for later.

Looking back at the girl, He gave a small smile. " It's nice to meet you. sorry though, I know just about as much as you do about . . . well, everything going on. " He awkwardly rubbed the back of his neck while she kept holding up her notepad. well, at least I am not alone here. . .

Right before he was going to ask the girl something, Alex heard someone at the front door. Seeing her run for a weapon, He quickly grabs a broken wooden beam not to far away from his persons. She signaled for them to check it out.

Nodding, Alex slowly walked around the benches and came to a halt at one side of the door. Taking a deep breath and gulping, he held his wooden beam in his hands like a bat and got ready. Please not be dangerous. . .

Stopping with a dull thud of his boots, Alastair glanced up at the chapel. Deep down he was hoping for signs that this was built by at least something that resembled human, but his hope were dashed by its condition of disrepair. The main thought that troubled his mind was the thought that this whole chapel could be a brilliantly disguised trap, all set to try and lure refugees into a waiting maw.

Hesitating he walked off to the side, and turned his attention to the only other thing that stood out within this area, the graveyard. Many questions were raised about these graves, none of which really made Alastair feel any better, for all he knew they could be the graves of the victims that came before him, heck they may have even been a plot of land waiting to bury his corpse if he was to die.

"Memento Mori" he stated under his breath as he turned back to the chapel and headed for its doors. Carefully pushing the doors open slowly he stepped inside swiftly, trying to let his eyes adjust to the sight before him, Nothing seemed to stand out and he could not tell yet whether that was a good or bad thing. His boot steps echoed loudly within the building as he took a couple more step down the center aisle, the unnerving thought of his own death from seeing the graveyard was subdued for the moment as he could at least see some reprieve while he could plan and prioritize his next Moves.

Raine slowly peeked through the front doors of the chapel and saw a rather tall and intimidating man near the front. His size compared to her and the guy with her was big enough that he could overpower them with some ease. Great.

She watched him divert his attention over to the graveyard for a moment before mumbling something and walking towards the entrance. Raine quickly ducked away from the door as the man walked in, his boots echoing louder than her own footsteps ever could. She gripped the metal decanter in her hand as she shot a look over towards the man with the beanie. If they were to survive, they had to work together. Step one? Make sure this guy isn't hostile, and defend themselves if necessary.

She pulled out her notepad and quickly scribbled down:"Go find out if he's a threat or not, and I'll go hide nearby. If he is a threat, yell "NOW!" and I'll sneak up on him and help you out."

Raine looked at the tall man who walked halfway down the aisle and seemed to be observing the building.

"Be careful."

She quietly tore the note from the pad and tossed it to the blond boy, nodded towards him, and crept her way behind one of the pillars in the sanctuary, not too far from the man in question. Clenching the decanter in her hand and staying as quiet as possible, she waited for beanie boy to make a move, and hope things would work out for the best.

Raine hated being this paranoid, but she had no idea what to expect in this mysterious world, and she wasn't ready to die yet. Thoughts began entering her mind, and all she thought was multiple ways she could end up dead; chills ran down her spine at the mere thought of not seeing her family again because she was mauled by some creature in another world.

Speaking of that...

She clenched her teeth in frustration as she remembered Eris' face; her cackle of laughter before leaving her in this hellish place.

"I hope I don't end up kicking Eris in the face before I can actually ask her how to get out of here..."
