    FEARS Losing his brother Casey – Being taken out of the military robotics experiment
    DREAMS Creating and leading his own team of Remote Pilots

    HISTORY Levi and Casey were part of a fairly well-to-do family. They weren’t spoiled, but had a few privileges that they enjoyed.
    The only issue is that their parents traveled a lot on business, so they sent them to a boarding school for their education. Even though they traveled a lot, they still saw a lot of each other.
    However, one night when driving home from the airport, their father lost control of their car, and they died in a head-on collision with a semi-trailer. Their will stated that they were to be looked after in the boarding school until they were taken in by someone, or Levi had come of age and takes control of the money in the will.
    Levi and Casey grew very close after that. But some didn’t appreciate how close they were, because they often got into trouble, pranked the staff and some students, and were a general nuisance for the campus.
    One day, the school went on a field trip to the military base nearby. During the tour, Levi and Casey broke away from the group to explore the parts that they didn’t get to see. They managed to evade the soldiers for a little while until they got distracted by something going on in a room with partly closed shutter blinds. A higher officer caught them, and brought them back to the group, which, upon discovering they had broken away, was waiting outside, and the rest of the tour was canceled.
    Yet in spite of this, the officer who caught them figured, since they managed to get all the way back there without being caught, that they might make good test subjects for the robotics experiment. And so he and a few other people working on the experiments took them in.

    FAVORITE MOVIE Pacific Rim (after learning how similar the robotics experiment was to it)
    FAVORITE SHOW MacGyver (his dad introduced it to him when he was younger)
    FAVORITE BOOK Outbound Flight by Timothy Zahn
    FAVORITE AUTHOR Unknown
    FAVORITE SUBJECT History and Science
    FAVORITE BAND TheFatRat
    FAVORITE SONG Windfall, by TheFatRat
    FAVORITE FOOD Pizza, but likes most foods
    FAVORITE DESSERT Chocolate brownies
    FAVORITE DRINK 7-Up

    LOVER OR FIGHTER? Fighter – Once he got himself straightened out, he wants to fight for the good of the world.
    NIGHT OWL OR MORNING BIRD? A combination between the two. Can stay up fairly late, but still get up early for a teenager.
    INTROVERT OR EXTRAVERT? Extravert
    OPTIMIST OR PESSIMIST? Optimist
    HOT-HEADED OR COLD-HEARTED? Hot-headed
    POP OR ROCK? Electronic, actually.
    HUGS OR KISSES? Hugs
    HEAD OR HEART? Sometimes one, sometimes the other, sometimes both
    INDOORS OR OUTDOORS? Outdoors
    FUN OR WORK? Fun

    @leumeister I love this! And the gemstone thing is literally just something fun I put in there – there’s a gem for every month. It isn’t necessary that you use it, haha. Anyway, the Hot or Cold question at the end is supposed to say which he prefers. I love your character! He’s very interesting. And is his age unknown, or are you giving me leave to choose his age?

    Hey, thanks! 😀 Oh, I see. I think I knew that, but I forgot. 😛

    Oh, okay. Preference. Makes sense

    I don’t think his age is unknown, per se, but that’s the age range that I picture him in, and since the series is set in 2017, his birthday would have to be set between 1999 and 2002, if he’s going to be those ages specifically.

    Anyway, I thought of him, and after I looked up the Modern Four crossover series, I thought he’d be a pretty good fit, considering the talents and abilities and technology the characters had access to. I can endorse him in a non-canon crossover series if that works. 🙂

    @daughteroftheking Glad you like her. I actually made her a bit of a fusion of a close friend of mine and a teacher I really like and see as a mentor.
    @graceofspades2017 Yes, I am from the glorious ‘Land Down Under’! XD
    Yeah, a mentor kind of character would be fine. Well, Australia is a wonderful place.
    Um… We’re pretty similar to the US, besides the fact that our accents are more similar to Southern English and that we are far less populous. Aussies themselves tend to be fairly ‘chill’ people and as the coast (and a little inland in our Eastern states) is the only livable part of the country, many of us tend to go to the beach quite often. I’d say that Clara is from Brisbane, which is the capital city of Queensland.
    Not exactly sure what to tell you about Straya but if you have any more specific questions, I’ll be happy to answer them. 🙂

Her adopted siblings gave her the nickname of Princess Coral because of her European heritage and her unquenchable love for the beach. As she got older, she discovered that she had special powers. She feels like she is in sync with nature. Whenever she wants, she can have the stamina of a fox, the eyesight of an owl, the hearing of a falcon, the agility of a mountain goat, the swimming power of the dolphin and the power of a horse.
