The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

I thought it would be a good idea to discuss the characters you have created for the stories you write.  I have several.

My Star Wars characters:
Paito Grimm, my bounty hunter.  I have redone the story and made some major changes to the character. He no longer wears battle armor.  Now he just wears a blaster-retardant mest under his clothing.  Also, the story no longer takes place after the fall of the Empire but right in the middle of Palpatine's reign.  Paiot has a strong dislike for the Empire because of what they did to the natives of Ra'Kel, who were friends of his.

Jedi Master Ra'Lis
A Raptorian Jedi from Ra'Kel who managed toescape Imperial forces and escape to an unknown planet.  

---------------------------

Characters from Beasts of the American West

After three years, I am still working slowly on this story.  However, the reviews I have been getting are good.  Some have even suggested that I publish it.  Anyway...

Blaze is one of the major characters in the story along with his older brother, Rhen.  They are a pair of bison who are the last members of their herd trying to survive in a changing world.  

Heather is another major character but she plays a smaller role.  She is a moose who Rhen and Blaze encoundered in a cave while seeking shelter from a severe storm.  She has developed a crush on Rhen and has grown fond of Blaze as well but longs to return home to the mountains.

This is all I can do for now.  I will post more later.  Please feel free to share your characters.

Let's see...
Eragon Fanchara--Ryonosuke Kazan and Setsuna(Dragon Partner)
A young wandering swordsman and his dragon partner, who aid the Varden "When we feel like it"  His weapons are a pair of Katana and his personal Nodachi sword, which he calls the "Monohoshizao", after the legendary sword of Sasaki Kojiro.

Spyro Fancharas--Keres, Haru, Gale, Sienna, Alfons, Heath, and Kyohei
Read the eventual story on FF.net. Too many to count.
Haru is an ex-servant of the Dark Master, as is Keres.  Gale is a myrmidon with the odd habit of falling asleep anywhere, anytime, and Sienna is a young healer with the ability to use light magic.  Alfons is the 13th descendant of the legendary Dr. Faust, and Heath is a bond-partner to his wyvern, Luna.  Kyohei is a flame wielder, as well as a sardonic, easygoing person.

LBT Fancharas--Dante, Virgil, Motochika
You know these guys.  

There are others, but these are the main ones. Art and such coming soon!

These are from my fan fic Twilight Valley. There are many characters but these are the main characters.

Deimos - Utahraptor deserter from Claw Valley. He is very well trained in hand-to-hand (or is it claw-to-claw?) combat. His hand-to-hand combat system is what I jokingly call "Dino Krav Maga" (Krav Dino). He is allied with the Great Valley.

On a side note: Ducky and her mother enter combat in this fan fic. Ducky's mother has a fighting style similar to Escrima and she rarely enters combat without her weapon (a tree branch). Ducky will enter combat after Chapter 9 and her fighting style is similar to Deimos (See Chapter 9 when it is finished for details. Yes, you will see Ducky use "Dino Krav Maga"). Yes, I'm aware that I screwed over the canon and I really don't care because there is no other way to involve Ducky in Twilight Valley (I refuse to have her as the "damsel in distress" too many times!).

Blue-Scale - Allosaurus deserter from Claw Valley. He is allied with the Great Valley.

Raptix - Velociraptor deserter from Claw Valley. He is allied with the Great Valley.

Styracus - an evil and power-hungry Styracasaurus who leads an army of herbivores. Allied with Claw Valley.

Theta - 2nd in command of Styracus's army. Shares power with Hasta.

Hasta - Stegosaurus. 2nd in command of Styracus's army. Shares power with Theta.

There are many more important characters but I don't want to spoil anything.

Let's see...Markus Silverman is my main OC, but Moff Thalus is also another. Other than those two, I have created no more as of yet, but there may be more to come.

I've created the character of Markus Silverman in my story, along with Moff Thalus and a few other Imperial officers. I plan to create more.

Modification: Whoops. Sorry, guys. I forgot I posted here already.
