Mode of Transportation: Himself (in paticular, his belly, depending on the terrain)
Overall Personality: Shy, sweet, lovable, friendly, helpful, brave, nervous, tough
Personality Flaws: He apologizes if he ever messes up on something repeatedly. He isn't quite used to his strength either, and is very clumsy. Being a mutant penguin, he worries that no one likes him and think of him as a monster.
Hobbies: Swimming, sliding on ice, eating fish, trying to fly (and failing badly)
Likes/Dislikes: Friends, other penguins, fish, ice and water, hugs, swimming and sliding, helping, helping to save the day from bad guys, his mate and soon-to-be-born chick/the Zoo, bad guys, being a monster, being caged up, heat, being seperated from his family, marine predators, failing to be of assistance
Long-term Goals: To do his best to do good, and find where his wife and chick are.
Skills: Fish catching, swimming, sliding, tap-dancing, waddling
Magic Skills: When he got exposed to too much heat, he grew into a gigantic mutated penguin. He has unbelievable super strength, which makes him better at most of the stuff he used to do. He also has a super sonic bird call, although usually he has no control of it.

Family: Starlight (his mate), his chick (it hatched far away from his home; he doesn't know what gender or what its name is)
Friends: Some, or hopes at least some
Enemies: Bad guys, zookeepers
Pets, Sidekicks, etc: None
OR
Characters to whom yours is a pet, sidekick, etc.: None

Short History: Paxton was born in Judica Zoo, where he grew up into one of the most liked and popular penguins that people would come to see. Things got even better once Starlight, a new penguin from a different zoo, came into his life. The two mated like any normal penguins would, and she laid an egg, who would hatch and be their first chick together. It all seemed good...

...That is, until the zookeepers thought Pax was needed to excite guests, not raise a chick. So, they sent Starlight and the egg to a different zoo, unknowingly breaking the heart of Pax. They tried to make him forget her, but the zookeepers had forgotten that penguins mate for life. Pax wasn't smart, being a normal penguin, but he wanted his family back. Bad.

A few months after that, one of the most unusually hottest days occured. The only other time like this had happened back when the solar energy hit. Because of it, Pax started changing, and turned into a intelligent and strong mutant penguin. People were terrified of him, and he didn't know what to do. Is there a place for a mutated penguin in the world?

Short History:

Josiah and Michelle's father, David Kingsley, was a renowned music professor in the city of Brink City when he met their mother, a local singing sensation named Lauryn Baines. They dated for several years before David, a cautious and thorough man, finally decided to propose.

They were already in their late thirties when they married, so when the twins were born the doctors told them they would probably be their only children. They decided to move to the smaller city of Parksville, and threw themselves completely into the raising of their children.

At the time of the supernova, Josiah and Michelle were in Brink City, trying to start their own musical career. Due to the technological collapse, they were unable to make contact with their parents, so Josiah decided to they should head back to Parksville at once. Around this time, he started noticing a sudden increase in certain abilities - except when in the company of his sister.

Thanks to a childhood illness leaving Michelle blind, Josiah thinks it is his solemn duty to protect her, both from the lawlessness brought about by the technological collapse, and from the knowledge that they are both suffering from "radiation poisoning". His first priority is to get back to Parksville and reconnect with their parents.

Michelle loves her brother, but his constant need to protect her really annoys her. She wishes they had just stayed in Brink City, and weren't constantly on the move. Though she has no idea that she and her brother are both "superhuman", she admires those who attempt to protect the populace with their gifts, and (completely unrelated, in her mind) is starting to suspect there is something her brother isn't telling her.

Short History: Grew up to have good moral principles for the most part but is much too proud. He is comfortably settled at last and is ready to seek out a bride. His sights immediately fell on the Dobbins family because there were several daughters for him to chose from and their father would die soon, allowing those daughters to inherit his wealth. Laurence figures that by marrying them, he will have a fine bride and more riches still. He has been watching the daughters and is not sure yet who he wishes to court, although he finds Susannah particularly fine, and Cuddie is a close second in his eyes. Ellen is fine as well, although he desires to marry one of the older girls. Florrie he finds suitable enough. He is not at all interested in Effie, for even if she were not too young for him, her personality does not fit his at all.

Thanks to The Rose-Tree Dryad for creating Supernova, in which these characters will appear!

This is a work in progress, subject to added details and possible changes



Daniel Baxter

Nickname: Dan
Age: Just turned 32
Height/weight: 5’10”, slender
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Dark brown; worn quite short

Residence: A small house on the edge of Parksville
Occupation: Employed by the regional power company until the supernova; now he's a freelance local repair guy.
Mode of Transportation: Walking; catching a ride with friends
Overall Personality: Curious; loving and protective of his family and friends
Personality Flaws: Despite his love of the outdoors, he sometimes still clings to the lost technology that used to define the lives of everyone in Azurema - and a (likely false) hope it can be restored.
Hobbies: Reading; playing with his daughter; camping and hiking in the nearby Palisade National Park
Likes: Hiking, camping; cooking over the campfire; assembling or disassembling machines
Dislikes:
Long-term Goals: Continue to provide for his family; assisting in the restoration of the power grid should that ever happen.
Skills: Extensive, intuitive mechanical prowess/aptitude; camping and outdoor skills
Family: Wife Angela, daughter Grace
Pets: A Welsh corgi puppy his daughter has named Candy
Friends: The Norwood family
Enemies: Anyone who threatens his family

Background: For as long as he can remember, Dan has been curious about machines and mechanical devices. Even as a child he had a habit of taking things apart to see how they worked – which often got him in trouble with his parents – but also showed an uncanny ability to understand the principles involved, and even to reassemble simpler machines. He could often grasp the ideas involved just by a careful inspection of a machine.

This intuition stayed with him, and at university he earned an Electrical Engineering degree. These qualifications allowed him to land an excellent job with one of the regional power companies shortly after graduation. But once the power grid collapsed his job was no longer needed; now he helps out neighbors and friends with anything mechanical or electrical. Should the power grid ever come back online, he knows his skills will be in great demand once again.

While at university he met a young lady named Angela Atherton, and while it wasn’t “love at first sight” they soon developed a bond and spent an increasing amount of time together. Once he had accepted the job with the power company, they were married.


Angela (Atherton) Baxter

Nicknames: Angie, Ang
Age: Almost 31 (Dan and Grace are planning a surprise birthday party)
Height/weight: 5’5”, trim (it’s impolite to ask a lady her weight! ;) )
Eyes: Green
Hair: Light auburn, shoulder-length, slightly curly

Residence: A small house on the edge of Parksville
Occupation: Elementary schoolteacher
Mode of Transportation: Walking
Overall Personality: Eager to help the children in her classes, but often is a bit of a 'softie' due to the circumstances of her own daughter's arrival. Loves nurturing her daughter.
Personality Flaws: May coddle her daughter too much; sometimes depressed over her inability to bear another child
Hobbies: Reading (especially classical literature and mythology); teaching her child and other kids
Likes: Literary knowledge; books; chocolate
Dislikes: Tolerates her husband's love of the outdoors but isn't excited about spending time with bugs and wild animals
Long-term Goals:
Skills: Teaching
Family: Husband Dan; daughter Grace
Friends: The Norwood family
Enemies:

Background: Angela has always been fond of classic literature and children, and chose to pursue an elementary teaching education to meld those two interests. While at university she met Dan Baxter, and eventually accepted his marriage proposal.

After their honeymoon she completed her teaching degree and began teaching in a nearby school. She loved her work, but being around all those kids increased her desire for a child of her own. Her husband had a good job and also liked children, but they had difficulty conceiving for some time. When she finally bore a healthy baby girl, they had only one choice for her name – her life was a gracious gift. Physical complications during pregnancy and delivery made it unlikely she'd ever bear another child; the couple was investigating adoption when the supernova threw society into chaos. Both she and her husband occasionally regret their inability to have another child, but they love their daughter deeply and are always grateful for the gift of her life.


Grace Elizabeth Baxter

Nickname: Gracie (but only from her parents)
Age: 8
Height/weight: 4’0”; petite
Eyes: Green
Hair: Chestnut colored, usually worn in a long braid

Residence: Wherever her parents are.
Occupation: Growing up and looking cute.
Mode of Transportation: Walking; being carried by her parents if she's particularly persuasive
Overall Personality: Shy around strangers
Personality Flaws: Can be demanding at times, like most children
Hobbies:
Likes: Fascinated by the natural world
Dislikes: Bossy parents
Long-term Goals: None yet; lives for the day
Skills:
Family: Father Dan, mother Angela
Friends: Anyone who plays with her; her puppy; Holly and Ivy Norwood
Enemies:

Background: Her parents had difficulty conceiving a child, so they consider her a gift of grace – hence her first name. Her middle name honors Angela’s mother. She favors her mother's side of the family in appearance but is very much a “Daddy’s girl.”

Like most children, some days she can be all sweetness and light, and a little monster on others. But on the whole she’s a happy, loving little girl.

Her interests appear to lie in a different area than her father’s mechanical insight and her mother’s love of literature. She’s already shown a fascination with nature: plants, animals, weather, the night sky, etc.

She's occasionally asked her parents for a little brother to play with, and doesn't fully understand their explanation that Mommy may not be able to have another baby. In the meantime, she's nearly inseparable to the family's Welsh corgi, which she named Candy.

How did the supernova affect this little family, if at all? Stay tuned!
