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.
Allegiance: She'll become a Codebearer, though she currently denies the existence of Solandria, claiming instead it was just a fantasy she and her sister shared.
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

Bio: Fiel lived in Philadelphia most of his life. Due to difficulty with bullying at one school his parents moved him to another. He met his best friend Amber at school shortly after swapping. 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)
Personality: (Easily annoyed, very caring, scolds people like he’s their mother)

Shadow or Codebearer: To be determined
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.

Weapon: Dual Dark Katanas (Like regular katanas but made from a special alloy used only by shadow that cause non-shadow to go mad when injured by it.)
Name: Yakov (actually spelled Яков)
Bio: Born and raised in a Codebearer home, Yakov grew up as all other Codebearer children would. But he resented the Author and the Author's Writ, and has steadily been becoming darker. He's technically Shadow, though won't yet admit it. He met Jade ten years ago, and the two have been partners in bounty hunting ever since.

Weapons: Corrupted Veritas sword; non-Veritas twin swords
Other: Yakov likes to speak with a Russian accent, and to pronounce his name in the Russian way. Also, Yakov and Jade were two of the people specifically targeting the Dreadwings.
Karawan chuckled, then noticed Sadie's concerned expression. 'Not like that one time,' he continued, 'when that spanish kid was devoured alive by by giant earwigs. Never even saw them coming.' His eyes flashed intensely from kid to kid.
Sadie didn't necessarily believe him, but she made a face anyway, and a shudder rippled through her. "That's gross."
"Knock it off, Karawan!" Delilah shook her head, though she couldn't help grinning. "If you're gonna try and scare everyone, tell them about the dreadwings, gorewings, dispirits, and what not. But wait until we reach the Sanctuary." She headed off toward the woods at a slow stride so as to keep from getting too far ahead.
Fiel laughed at both Karawan 'attempt' to scare them and Sadie's response. Fiel was loosening up a bit. Although he wasn't sure he trusted these people because they literally just met, but he didn't see that they had any other choice. They didn't know where they were or what dangers lurked here and quiet frankly Fiel still had a hard time believing that this wasn't some messed up dream. The best option did seem to be going with them back to wherever they came from. He nudged Amber to get her attention and they shot her a questioning glance while mouthing "should we go with them?"
Vert rolled her eyes at her uncle. She was used to his jokes by now. Sometimes they were pretty funny, but this one was just absurd, at least in Vert's opinion. She watched her aunt Delilah slowly begin the trek back. She shifted her vertias bow and thought a moment before swapping it to the other shoulder. She turned and looked at the lake, taking in the sight. She enjoyed being out here so much. She wasn't really ready to head back yet. Even though they had been walking for quite some time. She studied the water watching ripples here and there until she spotted something out of the ordinary on the water. "Is...is that a fishing pole?" She questioned aloud although she hadn't meant to.
'Vert, I would prefer you not get so close to the water.' Karawan called, 'There be monsters in there.' His joking manner had vanished, replaced with genuine concern. He started over towards Vert.
'Do we have a choice?' Amber said, not bothering to hide her voice. She was still angry, with basically everyone, but she had decided that now was not the time to be salty; that would come later.
" Alright." Vert responded softly. She took one last look at the eerie lake before turning and walking away from the water's edge. She hadn't realized she'd gotten so close.
"Well, we have other choices, but none of them are any better." Fiel kept his tone low.
Delilah glanced over her shoulder and saw everyone still standing by the lake. "Aren't you guys coming?" she called.
Sadie took Arely's hand. "Let's go, she said, and started off after Delilah.
"Yeah.We're coming." Fiel nudged Amber forward, not wanting to walk in front of her.
Vert walked over to her uncle and grabbed his hand. "I think I'm ready to go back now."
Amber gave Fiel an annoyed look and began to walk. 'I have a bad feeling about this.' she muttered
Karawan nodded. 'Aye. Its a bad idea to be out in the forest for this long. Things will catch your scent.'
"You and me both." Fiel whispered as he walked after Amber.
"Yeah...We should probably catch up with Aunt Delilah..." Vert squeezed her uncle's hand and smiled up at him. "Thanks for taking me outside today. It really means a lot to me to be out here."
'I mean....we dont even know these people.' she muttered angrily.
Karawan didnt respond. He just smiled down at her and gave her hand a squeeze.
"We also don't know where we are or where we're going." Fiel responded softly as they began the trek to where ever their new 'friends' were leading them. The journey was long or at least it seemed so. Fiel tried his best to keep pace with the others, but he ended up falling a behind here and there when he had to stop to slow his breathing. He hoped no one had noticed him falling behind and especially not when he ended up stopping long enough to take one of his prescription pain killers that he kept on him. Never had he been so grateful for pants pockets with zippers.
*time skip or rather a fast forward*
Vert walked at the front of the group. She savored the last couple of minutes outside the sanctuary. She could see the clearing ahead that held the back entrance portal. She pulled up her hood up, making sure to tuck her hair back. It wasn't like her usually sneaking in and out with only uncle Karawan. This time they had visitors, visitors from the other world and that would surely draw attention that she didn't want. If anyone besides the usually back gate guards saw that she had been out of the sanctuary they would certainly tell her parents and Vert knew her parents wouldn't be happy. Her conscience reminded her what she was doing was wrong simply because it was against her parents wishes. Guilt stabbed at her heart and frown tugged at her lips.
'We are nearly to our destination, so make sure your trays are up and your seats are in the upright postition.' Karawn said without a hint of humor, glancing back at the newcomers.
