Jessi aka Snow White's character(s)
Name: Sadie Drake
Bio: Though born in Solandria, Sadie grew up in the Veil with her grandfather for her own protection, visiting Solandria only a few times in her younger years. Her parents crossed between the two worlds quite frequently, always bringing an exciting new gift for their daughter. Then one day, when Sadie was 10, they stopped coming. They'd just vanished in Solandria. Grandpa Drake raised Sadie and her younger sister, Arley, until he died a week after Sadie's 18th birthday. Now Sadie lives in her grandfather's house, taking care of Arley.

Weapon: Veritas bow
Name: Delilah Mabhul
Bio: Delilah, though supportive in her brother's quest to unite the Universes into a utopia, doesn't necessarily agree with his methods in using dark arts and wizardry; she's afraid of losing him to the power of evil. Her goal has always been to stick by Karawan's side and hopefully keep him sane.
Allegiance: Shadow if her brother is, but could possibly become a Codebearer
Weapon: Twin swords (non Veritas)
Name: Jade (real name unknown)

Starlight aka Arely's characters
Name: Arely Drake
Hair and clothes
Most accurate for everything else
Bio: Arely was born in Solandria, but fearing for their children’s safety, her parents thought they would be safer staying in the Veil with their grandpa. Arely and her sister, Sadie, still visited Solandria from time to time, and their parents would come visit them too. Until one day, they didn't come back to the veil.
Years went by, and Sadie had dismissed Solandria as a world of their imagination. A game she would play with her sister. Arely, however, never lost hope.
Then, her Grandpa died. Before he died, he gave Arely a book, which he called “The Author's Writ”
He knew that she still believed, and gave her the book because of it.
Afraid of what her sister might think, Arely kept the book a secret from her, reading it only in her room with the door closed.
Then, one day, when they had a friend over, they found the book. They asked for Arely to read it, so Arely hesitantly opened it.
As soon as she had finished the first passage, the friends were pulled into the realm of Solandria, which is in need of their help.
Other: Sadie Drake is her sister
Shadow or Codebearer: Codebearer

They’ve known each other for about six years now. He often shares his lunch with her when she can’t afford to buy one. He also tried to help her in the subjects she struggled in. He constantly got onto her about forgetting things. Amber called him mom once because of the way he was treating her. That didn’t make him stop though. He enjoyed her company and liked to do things to make her happy. Things were good until the recent shooting. He was in the same class as Amber when it happened. He tried to protect her and at first he did, but ultimately it ended tragically. Fiel got hit in the chest and almost immediately went down. Amber was next. Fiel spent a few months in the hospital recovering and so did Amber. He came back with only a scar where the bullet entered. She lost her leg. Fiel blamed himself for that. She didn’t talk to him or anyone for a while after the incident. One day he got a text saying she was leaving. He tried calling her after he read the text, but she didn’t answer. He left a lot of messages on his way over to her house but found she wasn’t there. He blamed himself for that too. He went home and packed a small bag. He left a note for his parents promising to call often and saying he’d be back as soon as he could. Then he went after Amber (By the time the roleplay starts he will have found her and is trying to convince her to come back)

Weapon: Vertais Sword
Name: Vert Torres
Bio: Vert was born and raised in solondria with the occasional trip with her parents to the veil to visit their friends, the Drakes. The Drakes were strong warriors and influential people in the codebearers community, but they feared for the safety of their children so their kids grew up in the veil with the occasional visit to solondria which always made Vert happy. She liked to think that Sadie and Arely were her friends. Everything was perfect, for a while at least. But in continuing war against the shadows many people lost their lives, some are missing, and others lose themselves. The Drakes were among those people. They went out on one of their usually missions with their groups, but no one came back. After what happened to their friends, Vert's parents felt the Author calling them to step in, to do more, so they did. Each of them was placed in charge of different twenty-four-person groups that leave the sanctuary on various kinds of missions. Her parents’ groups are constantly leaving the safety of the sanctuary. Vert gets left at their house with a friend of her parents, Karawan Mabhul, who comes over to watch her. He replaced Vert’s mother as an instructor at the training facility. When Vert was about eleven Karawan taught her how to defend herself and she took to the defense classes so well that he eventually taught her to fight. She loved fighting and learning. She keeps thinking if she gets good enough then she can go out of the sanctuary with her parents. Although every time she brings it up her parents say that she hast to stay. That doesn’t keep her from hoping. She keeps training with Karawan and spends as much time as she can hanging around him and his sister when her parents aren’t home.
Other: She’s a perfectionist and has a photographic memory. Karawan has taken Vert out of the sanctuary a few times, but never far from the portal back to the sanctuary.

Delilah scowled. "Jerk," she muttered, loud enough for Karawan but too quiet for Vert.
"Sssoooo, um, can we go now?" Vert grinned, itching to get outside.
Delilah tore her glare from Karawan and grinned at Vert. "Of course, Green."
"Great!" Vert bounced towards the front door. "try and keep up slow pokes."
(So, we do a time skip after we get out the door or maybe after we get threw the portal thing that lets you exit the sanctuary?)
"Slow poke, am I?" Delilah sprinted after Vert, but let the girl stay in the lead.
(I think after we get out the front door would be a good time for a time skip.)
Karawan led the way through the dark forest; despite the sun being in full bloom, the trees seemed to reject the light. 'We're getting close.' he said over his shoulder.

Vert skipped alongside Delilah, but behind Karawan. A tricky feat to accomplish with a sword strapped around your waist, but she had developed the skill over time. Vert took a deep breath of the forest air. It had been so long since she'd been this far from the sanctuary. It felt freeing and yet she felt a twing of guilt for not obeying her parents. "So how close is close?" She asked as she expertly buried her thoughts
(Is it close enough to hear people screaming as they plung into the lake...)
(Ehhh...maybe not THAT close?)
Arely was falling. That she knew. But that's just about all she knew. Her brain hadn't processed anything else yet.
Suddenly, everything came to her. The sky above them, the lake below, and the forest on framing the horizon on one side. Distantly, she saw the Crimson mountains, a familiar sight that she's missed so dearly.
She almost didn't care that she was falling anymore. She felt like she finally come home, and euphoria was overwhelming any other emotions.
She spread herself out and felt the air rush past her as she got closer to the dark water below. Soon, she had reached her destination. She plunged into the freezing water below.
She knew what was contained in the lake, and she eanwan out as soon as she could, but she also welcomed the feeling. It was familiar. She had missed this.
She began kicking her legs to reach the surface, and soon she did, a big grin on her face. She waited for everyone else to hit the water before moving to help them.
(I guess we're just gonna say we're that close, kinda sorry ringwraith :P I just really really wanna get to this part )
Vert's question was answered as soon as they rounded the next corner and she was temporarily blinded by sunlight. The trees appeared to pull back and an open area with a lake was now in view. "Woah..." Vert squinted trying to take in the scene while all the while getting her eyes to adjust to the more direct sunlight. She heard a large splash and it drew her attention to the lake where she thought she saw something resurface. "Hey, what's that?" She pointed towards the lake.
Fiel took a deep breath as the lake grew closer. He was hoping the lake would be deep enough to break a fall from however high they were falling. "Just gotta stay calm. Stay calm." He mentally coached himself right as he plunged into the cold water. His muscles wished to tense up due to a slight fear of deep water that he never quite seemed to be able to shake. He tried to keep fluid motions with both his arms and legs to get him to the light he saw overhead threw the dark water and blurred eyes. He would just have to hope that was the surface. Everything was going well til he brushed up against something. He turned to see if it was one of his friends, but he instead found himself staring at skeleton chained down in its watery prison. His mouth reflexively opened in a gasp at the sight in front of him. His chest tightened as if shouting you really shouldn't have done that. He coughed, only making matters worse as he fought his way to the surface. Thankfully, he didn't have as far to go as he thought he did. He broke the surface coughing dark water out and breathing heavily in.
Delilah squinted. "Is that..." Her eyes widened. "People?"
Sadie was momentarily overcome with euphoria at being once more in the land her parents loved, but the feeling quickly gave way to anger that her parents weren't here with them and fear that something might happen to Arley. She splashed into the water and resurfaced, sputtering, but thankful no dead bodies had brushed against her. A minute later she was dragging herself onto the shore, breathing heavily and quite irate.
