Here is my idea for a human character. Sorry I tend to go overboard on the details....

Played by: Chou Chou Rheastar
Character Name: Alara Craine
Age: 25
Sex: Female
Physical description: Alara is very petite, standing at around 5í3 she doesnít take up much space. Her hair is a rich, dark red in color and falls in thick curls down to her shoulder blades. Her eyes are a vibrant green with flecks of gold hidden in their depths. She had round cheeks with a defined face and her dimples are obvious when she smiles. Her face is very expressive and mobile and broadcasts what she is feeling. Alara is very slender and delicate appearing, with small hands, feet, and waist.

Role: Travel Writer/Fantasy Novelist
Why does your character want to go to Atlantis? Alara is a four time New York Bestselling Author. Her novel series has become the next big thing since Twilight and her travel writing is almost as popular. Yet, she canít find a single thing to write about. Her private life non-existent and the need for a new book to be submitted soon, coupled with a childhood love of Atlantis, drive her to request to be one of the people sent to Atlantis. She hopes to find the spark there that ignites her creativity and maybe her life once more.
Character Personality: Alara has two personalities. One is her Public Bestselling Novelist persona. The other is her true self. In public Alara is very bubbly and outgoing, able to smooze and socialize among the highest class of people. She has an innate ability to get people to enjoy being around her and to seek out her company. Alara is very comical and uses her expressive face and quick wit to get people to laugh and be at ease around her. She appears very confidant and aggressive with the opposite sex. She is seen as the fun loving and slightly materialistic party girl.

Her true personality is what people who only know her through business and through the public eye never see. Alara is at heart a very shy and sensitive person. She takes everything people do or say to heart and will agonize over the things she said to people or the things she did, over thinking everything to make sure she never cause someone distress or discomfort. She prefers to be quiet and do things like read or draw instead of the parties and events she is required to attend as a wellknown novelist. She is a very submissive type person, always deferring to others opinions or needs. Although, in business she can be ruthless about getting what she wants and can negotiate a deal to benefit her.

Her secret desires are at beast kinky and at most wild but she has a hard time approaching men she truly finds attractive. But, with the right man, she will truly let herself go and reveal her more crazy, wild desires.

Character History: Alara was born in the cargo hold of a merchant ship from Russia on itís way to America. Her father worked on board the ship for the Russian mafia and had smuggled her mother on board in hopes of starting a new life in America and getting away from his shady past. The ship was raided upon arriving in the States because it was suspected of having ties with the Russian Mafia. Alaraís father was accidentally killed in the ensuing chaos and a kind law enforcement agent took pity on her mother and helped obtain papers for them to stay in America.

The same agents soon became Alaraís step father when he fell in love with her mother and they married. A widower, he had two sons who were five and three years older than Alara. Unlike some mixed families there was no strife between the family members and they were all very happy to be together. Alaraís stepfather loved her like she was truly his own and his sons treated her like their true sister. They became very protective of the smaller sibling and were like her body guards at school against anyone wanting to bully the Russian girl.

Alara was raised speaking fluent Russian, English, and Spanish because her father believed knowing her home language as well as other languages was important. Her mother told her countless Russian fairy tales and folklore and Alara quickly developed a love of storytelling and history. She could always be found with her nose in a book or writing.

At age 10, her mother developed cancer and her family was thrown into turmoil. The cost of her mothers medical bills caused her father to work many hours and take on more dangerous (better paying) missions to support their family. Her eldest brother got a part time job to help and Alara and her other brother took over the household chores her mother was unable to manage. Alaraís mother was in and out of the hospital for five years and had surgery to try to remove all the cancer. Unfortunately, around Alaraís sixteenth birthday her motherís cancer came back much stronger and she soon passed away.

Her step-father was heartbroken to loose yet another wife and threw himself heedlessly into his work. Alara rarely saw him and both of her brothers had moved out to go to college. Alara retreated into herself and became angry and resentful towards everyone. She started sneaking out at night and hanging out with older men who were of a very bad reputation. Her father was never home and her brothers rarely saw her so Alara continued un-noticed in this pattern for over a year until her father was injured and had to stay home to recover. Finally forced to drag himself from his grief, as well as being forced to see a psycologist because of his injury, he noticed Alaraís strange behaviour. There were many huge fights and Alara even ran away for a few days before they started to work through things. Alara started to try harder to spend time with people her own age and stopped sneaking out at night. Her brothers even started trying to come home more to spend time as a family.

After she graduated high school Alara was accepted into a prestigious Art College on a full scholarship that even paid for her to get a small apartment of her own. Her eldest brother had opened a restaurant which had become popular with celebrities in Manhattan and was helping her father pay off his debts left over from Alaraís motherís illness. Her other brother had joined the Marines and was never able to tell them where he was until after his mission was over. He always sent Alara beautiful and rare things from his travels all over the world.

After college Alara sold her first travel book. She had taken a year old trip to Russia to try and find her family. Much to her surprise she had family on both her Motherís and Fatherís side still living in Russia and they were overjoyed to be re-connected with her. They had feared all three of them had perished on the journey to America. Her book was about her journey to find her family and see her families Russia.

After that book she started her Fantasy series and it instantly became a bestseller. She split her time between her fatherís house in the States and her family in Russia instead of buying her own home. Never having man longterm relationships she had one relationship with an older man in the Russian mafia until she had to get away from him for fear of his families more sinister ties.

When the Atlanteans came she had been in the States with her father. Jumping at the chance she now waits patiently to hear if she will be one of the lucky few who are accepted to go to Atlantis.

Hidden Because of Size

Played by: Chou Chou Rheastar   
Character Name:Nihlariyah (Niya to her friends)
Age:150
Sex: Female
Physical description: Standing at just under 5í6 she is slender and lithe in appearance. Her body is slightly toned as is the norm for Atlanteanís but her pursuits are not athletic so she is not heavily muscled. She has pure blue eyes that are almost cerulean in color and pale milky skin that is marked from the left side above her eyebrow all the way down her neck, shoulder, side, and left hip and leg in brilliant blue Atlantean symbols and markings. These marks symbolize the house of Aíruun, the house of artists. She has long white-blonde hair that falls to her ankles in a thick waterfall, she sometimes adds streaks of blues and greens to mimic the water she lives in when she is feeling truly artistic. Her right ear has been heavily pierced and usually has intricate, thin, chains of silver threaded through multiple holes all the way to the tip and dripping down to brush her shoulder.
Role: Artist. Nihlariyah is one of the most well known artists of her generation and is currently working on a spectacular work near the entrance of the city.
How do you feel about the human visitors? She is excited to meet with them and learn more about their art and history so she can incorporate it into her work.
Character Personality: Some might think Nihlariyah is slightly snobbish and aloof because of her age and the fact that her family is very scholarly despite being artistic. A person couldnít be farther from the truth in thinking that though, because Nihlariyah loves to talk to anyone and everyone. Constantly wishing to learn she is always seeking out new ideas and inspiration for her artwork. One of the few people in her family to participate in traditional artworks as well as the art of tattooing she has cultivated a style all her own when it comes to marking the body. She is very loyal to her friends and has a healthy adventurous streak that tends to get her into trouble when she goes adventuring. Nihlariyah loves to participate in debate and will strike up a conversation with anyone she meets to learn more about any subject which pops into her head. She especially loves speaking with the guards and protectors of the city since they are the few who see violence in Atlantisí relatively peaceful community. It inspires her to paint and create.
Character History: Nihlariyah is the eldest born of three siblings, all of which are girls. Her family was the origin of Atlantean artistry and are famous for their works of art throughout Atlantis. Their handiwork can be traced back to the very beginning of Atlantis and they are one of the noble families. Ever the adventurous one she was constantly having to be rescued from some of her adventures gone wrong. She could always be found creating and drawing and even while in school she was more drawn to the artistic side of learning instead of the hard sciences. Her sisters are both married and living with their husbandís families but Nihlariyah still has not found someone she wishes to be with, preferring to spend time among interesting men who challenge her mind and cause her to create. She also has started working more on her tattooing, creating family markings that were the traditional blue, as well as personal markings if people come to her with an interest. She is very excited for the humanís to come to Atlantis so she can study their culture and art more in depth.

Character Name: David Mctavish
Age: 27
Sex: Male
Physical description: David is leanly built as he spends his most time in the lab and field, though he is quite fit as well. He is around 5' 8" tall with light brown hair, which he always keeps short and neatly trimmed and soft blue eyes. He has a slightly aquiline nose and a well defined face with firm cheeks.

Role: Scientist (Natural Biologist)

Why does your character want to go to Atlantis? David is a very curious person and having spent quite some time in the natural world, he sees this opportunity not only to see the Atlantis of myth and learn of its culture, but also to learn about the Atlantians as a whole... as well as the unique animals that he might not get a chance to learn anywhere else in the world.

Character Personality: David is first a foremost a friendly and outgoing person, if a tad curious due to his line of work. He is always eager to help others, and has a light sense of humor. Being a natural biologist, he appreciates the beauty of nature and he gets rather upset when people do harm to the earth and driving some of the more endangered species closer and closer to extinction which he doesn't want to see happen in his life.

Character History:  David was born in a family of scientists, both his father and mother were naturalists which instilled a love of nature in his heart since he was young. It was no surprise that he grew up under the tutelage of his parents, sometimes helping out in the cataloging of information that they gathered during their trips while he was in high school. When he graduated, he went to college and then later university, majoring in Biology and graduated with honors.

He soon found himself going with his parents on their trips, learning more about the field that he was majoring in hands on and in the coming years, he became a rather famous natural biologist himself which pleased his parents to no end. Now an opportunity was given him to be part of the select few people that gets to go to Atlantis... and he was eager to discover and learn about the things he might find there in the mythical continent of legend.

Character Name: Adair Drake

Age: 27

Sex: Female

Physical description: Standing at 5'8" with dark brown hair, fair skin, and arresting blue eyes, Adair is a slim, attractive woman with well proportioned curves that she keeps in shape with yoga and jogging. Her usual attire includes sharp suits in the office or when meeting clients but otherwise she is usually dressed rather casually. She has a tattoo of a water dragon on her left hip, three piercings in each ear, and is left handed. She switches between glasses and contacts depending on her mood.

Role: Architect / Artist

Why does your character want to go to Atlantis? Its the chance of a lifetime! At the architecture firm where she works Adair is known as the up and coming risk taker. She often is paired with the more adventurous clients as she has a knack for taking their wants and needs and coming up with the unexpected... and its actually good. Her personal art reflects these same qualities yet in both areas she still manages to demonstrate an appreciation for history and various cultures and movements. She wants the chance to study the Atlantean culture and bring it back to the masses in a way that is respectful but will also still showcase her talents both privately and professionally. Not to mention beneath that sometimes too serious exterior lies a very curious and adventurous woman.

Character Personality: Adair is usually rather quiet, preferring to observe and learn rather than talk but she is by no means shy. In fact, she is actually quite confident, sharp, intelligent, and is very driven. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go and get it. Unfortunately she can also be rather absent minded once she get focused on a specific task or project, sometimes to the point that she will forget to even eat. This has effectively sidelined any potential long term relationships and made her the queen of flings and one-nighters, which has worked for her.
Overall, Adair is very open minded with her own unique outlook on things and enjoys being shown new ideas and perspectives. Most times her expression is rather sober but she is usually not nearly so heavy as her expression might suggest and her eyes will clearly communicate the truth of her feelings whether she wants them to or not. In addition, Adair has been known to "geek out" on occasion which causes her whole face to light up and might induce rambling.

Character History: Adair has been an artist her whole life. From an early age she was always drawing and painting and exploring whatever mediums she could get her hands on. Growing up as the only child of a highly respected professor of cultural anthropology she was exposed to a number of different cultures and that only seemed to fuel her interest. In school Art and History were her favorite subjects but it wasn't until she took Architectural Design as an elective in high school that she realized what she wanted to do. Oh she still loved playing with various mediums and digging into moments in history and taking pieces of other cultures to include in her personal projects but architecture specifically seemed to call to her. She liked the challenge of making art flow around the laws of physics and meeting certain standards and codes while still creating something beautiful and functional.

After high school, Adair was able to attend the large University where her mother worked tuition free. She was also accepted to several other schools of Architecture but ultimately elected to stay close to her mother, though she did live on campus rather than at home. After 7 years of study, which included going abroad twice in her undergrad years as well as a couple of summer internships, Adair received her Master's degree and shortly after passed the proper exams to be officially licensed. She then had her choice of positions at a few small and more progressive firms, finally settling on one that seemed to respect her more adventurous style. In the three years she has been there, she has quickly proven herself to be on top of her game, and though she has only just started to handle clients on her own she is already building a solid reputation.

Her boss was ecstatic to hear of her interest in going on the mission to Atlantis, though that was partially because he was thinking of the potential for increased revenue. Still, he supported her and did all he could to help, including assuring Adair she would still have a job should she be selected. Her mother, being a cultural anthropologist, is equally excited for the opportunity and even as they wait to hear the decision she has been nagging her daughter over proper etiquette when interacting with an unknown culture.
