Hybrid Animal: Jaguar (panthera onca)
Abilities: She's a good swimmer (jaguars actually like swimming more than most cats!), but she's bad at climbing trees. She always lands on her feet. Seraphina steps really lightly and quietly. She also has good balance. Seraphina also sleeps the way a cat (and apparently dolphins) do-one half of the brain at a time. So she's always half-awake. She's a very light sleeper, usually. She can see when there's a little light, but not completely in the dark (the eye needs at least SOME light to be able to see. Cats cannot see when it is completely dark. That is a myth). She also has somewhat enhanced smell and hearing.
Appearance: Seraphina looks pretty much human. Her ears are in the same position as most human ears are, but they're jaguar ears without fur. Which is strange. But whatever. She has dark brown hair, with some dark gold streaks, and cat eyes that are a mix between human brown and jaguar gold. Her eyes don't show the whites unless she's scared, and they dilate and narrow like a cat's. Seraphina has slightly faded jaguar spots all over her skin and a black nose. Seraphina is also a little on the tall side, and slender. She has pale skin and slightly rosy cheeks.
Personality: Seraphina is kind of shy and introverted when you first meet her. She's not very social, and when she's in a new environment/with new people, she doesn't know how to interact. When Seraphina feels comfortable (with the people and/or the environment), she will start to be more louder, impatient, impulsive, etc. She's rather intelligent. She's also very territorial and gets jealous easily. She trusts a bit too easily, but her opinion can get swayed pretty easily too. Sometimes she tries too hard to be nice/well-liked, but fails. Also, she's not always the bravest person, or the most confident.
Crush(Optional): Ash (when Silver joins)
Hybrid Animal: Brown rat (rattus norvegicus)
Abilities: He can fall a long way to the ground and survive. He has enhanced smell and hearing, and he can bite through several inches of concrete (and other stuff besides that, but that's his proudest accomplishment in terms of biting things). He can also feel spaces with his whiskers (as long as his whiskers are touching the sides of something).
Appearance: Vesper has dark golden-brown hair and brown eyes. His skin is a little dark, but covered with a very light fuzz of gray fur. He also has a pink rat's nose, rat ears, and a rat tail (let's play some Helicopter with that tail, huh?) He's more on the short side, with a somewhat, but not incredibly, stout build.
Personality: Hot-tempered, sarcastic, but pretty smart (in his own way). Very cynical. He's kind of greedy, but then he can still think of others. Kinda cowardly, but has a loud mouth. He's very good at stealing and lying.
Crush(Optional): Well...I mean, we all know it's Vespaddie vs. Vespecka, right?
Other: Brothers with Xavier and Cayden
Hybrid Animal: Amur/Siberian tiger (same thing) (Panthera tigris altaica)
Abilities: Can swim well, can jump high, can see well in dim light, has very good balance and enhanced agility. Her hearing and smell are only very slightly enhanced, and she has pretty much normal hearing and smell. She relies mostly on her eyes. She also, like Seraphina, can sleep with her brain half awake, but unlike Seraphina, she only does this if she chooses to.
Appearance: Sienna has tiger stripes and tanned skin. She is tall, but not overly tall, and lithe. She has dark orange hair, and yellow eyes with round pupils.
Personality: Very independent, she relies mostly on herself and doesn't like to ask for help often. She actually is brave, and impulsive. She's kinda on the extrovert side, but she knows when to shut up (unlike Vesper). Sometimes she does things she regrets, but she will always apologize (sooner or later), though she tends to sometimes hold a short grudge. She tries not to get attached too easily, but fails a lot.
Crush(Optional): Most likely Chase, but possibly not
Age(12-15): Hmm..well, my hybrid OCs got a year older this year...*sees Chase's form* Ah. 15.99-something 9's.
Hybrid Animal: Timber wolf (canis lupus) (isn't that such a neat-sounding scientific name?)
Abilities: Xavier has the enhanced senses of a wolf (night vision, as long as there's some light, enhanced hearing, enhanced smell) and can run for a long time (kind of fast, but not extremely fast)
Appearance: Red hair, blue eyes, mischievous grin, wolf ears, wolf tail. Xavier also has a small scattering of light freckles on his face.
Personality: Brave, likes to lead, very loyal to his "pack," cynical of outsiders, very impulsive, isn't very good with words. Sometimes lets his emotions speak for him rather than his brain.
Crush(Optional): Skylar (#SKYLAVIERFOREVER!!!!!)
Other: Brothers with Vesper and Cayden
Hybrid Animal: Weasel (mustela) (reminds me of mustaches)
Abilities: Enhanced agility, sharp weasel-like claws/nails, has a very fast metabolism (and as a result, needs to eat a lot every day), enhanced speed, sharp weasel teeth. Unlike most of the other hybrids, his hearing and smell aren't very enhanced beyond the ordinary human's (but his are even less so enhanced than Sienna's). He also has very fast reflexes.
Appearance: Cayden has blond hair, brown eyes, and kind of pale skin. He has sharp weasel teeth, which you don't see unless he opens his mouth, and he also has sharp weasel-like claws/nails. He also is on the short side, but has a thinner and more lithe build than Vesper.
Personality: He teases a lot, and sometimes doesn't know when to stop. He's brave only when he has to be (like, Xavier isn't there to save him from having to be brave). He's very energetic and has very fast reflexes. He's also very hungry all the time. Usually, he won't pick a fight (on purpose anyway), but when he starts seeing one or starts seeing blood or something, some instinct triggers in him, and he'll get involved (if he isn't already) and keep going at it, and sometimes he won't know when to stop. (I'm sorry, okay?! He wasn't going to be like this until I read an article about weasels!) He also easily gets hyper, which will put him into a frenzy of some sort.
Other: I looked at the old RP, and Miss Clarton's name was apparently originally Emily. Ah, well, Clare Clarton has a better ring to it. Brothers with Xavier and Vesper.
MODS PLEASE LET THIS THROUGH!!!!
