Hi everyone! How’s it going?
So I am planning on writing a fantasy/adventure series, called ‘Birthmarks’.
I was inspired by @caldafox and her wolf series. I thought it was really cool that other people got to be characters. I have been planning to write this story for awhile, but I have decided that you guys can be characters in it! (Or at least your OC’s can).
To give you an idea of the story plot, here’s a quick blurb kinda thing:
‘Cursed, they said. By the ancient spirits. Five of us: same birthmark, strange...abilities, let’s say. The elders said we were a hazard, a danger, but I felt normal. I wanted to be treated normal. But I want doesn’t get. And we found out the hard way.
They came in the night. Da was ready, for the pitchforks and flames and roaring curses. But there were too many of them. So we ran. We ran and ran, into the twisted woods, and never looked back.’
Incase that wasn’t enough, the story is basically about five children from different families (10-13 age limit), whom are all born with a birthmark shaped like a bear on the back of their hand. They also have incredible powers, each based around an element: Water, Fire, Earth, Air and Energy (electricity).
They live in an ancient tribe near an enchanted (and forbidden) wood, and all of the elders in the tribe believe them to be demons, whom must be killed. When the elders attack them in the middle of the night, they run into the forest and discover a trove of forgotten secrets, and a life-threatening prophecy at the hands of a dangerous, dark force.
If you would like to be a character, please comment a character profile into the comments using the template in three slides. I’m afraid there will only be five main characters and it will be first come serve, as long as you fill out all the necessary requirements.
Rules: 1. As mentioned before, first come first serve. 2. Please make sure your character is between 10 - 13 years old. 3. There can only be ONE character for each element. 4. The element Energy (electricity) has already been taken for my character (sorry).
5. If all the main characters have been taken, you can also make characters for the elders, or magical beings (more on that later) or other tribe members. Everyone okay with that? If not or if you have a question, either put it in the comments or if you prefer, message me.
Character template: Name Age Gender Hair colour Eye colour Skin colour Any noticeable features? (Eg: Scar, freckles, fat/muscular/small etc build) Personality Element Role (main character, elder, magical being)
If your character is a magical being, please name the creature (eg: basilisk, pixie, chimera, satyr, mermaid, dragon etc). Also, if your name can be related to your element or personality that would be awesome, but obviously that isn’t important.
For an example, here is my character:
Rio Sayua Lyons-Hart 12 Female Brown, blonde tipped hair Stormy blue eyes White, but slightly tanned A pretty muscular build, arrow tattoos on the soles of her feet Funny, cheeky, cheerful, brave, violently loyal Energy (electricity) Main character
That’s all for now, be sure to add your character to the comments. Byyyyyeeee!
