Hello and welcome to my character directory.
Honestly, I'm not entirely sure what to write here, but these are my characters. I am sort of glacial when it comes to posting, but I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I have a decent amount of characters, however, I only want to write with a few of them, and I don't want to devote myself to many threads. If you'd like to thread with one of them, just send me a DM on slack or a PM here.
So a little about myself.
My name is Ray, but you can call me ems. I never enjoyed writing in school, but I decided to try this site out anyway, and I have found a new passion. I would love to write a novel, but I struggle to find the time to sit down and actually plot it. Unlike a lot of people that I know, I want to move somewhere colder. I love animals. I have 4 dogs, and a cat. These 5 animals are my entire life. I love them to the moon and back, and I would do anything for them. I am currently obsessed with T-Rex things. I love helping people. It's a calling. I am a paramedic.

NiklasNeuschwanstein Twenty-Four | Male | Capitol
Nik always had everything handed to him growing up. From a young age, he's wanted nothing more than to prove that he's better than everyone. He loves bossing people around as well as ordering Avoxes to do awful things. His ultimate goal in life is to have everyone bow down to him. Maybe even one day he can rule all of Panem because that's his dream. Nothing stands in his way. Nik doesn't have many friends in life because he pushes them away with his arrogance. He fully believes that nobody is better than him, and hates when someone proves that they are. But he's not lazy. He works for all he has, and he won't ever let anyone stop him from reaching his goals. His expecations are high, and many can't reach them, so he's often let down. Maybe one day he'll finally succeed.

Jethro Twenty-Eight | Male | Peacekeeper
Jethro thinks he's a superhero. When he was young, his mother wanted him to become a career to enter the hunger games, but he had other plans.

At the age of 19, he lost his mother, and his entire life went crumbled before his eyes. Sometimes he wondered if it was worth it to pick the pieces up. It wasn't until he became addicted to drugs and alcohol that he realized he wasn't making his mother proud. Soon he sat them down and walked away completely. He became a peacekeeper because he wanted to make a difference in the world. He's not afraid to make enemies. He's not afraid to bring people to justice. He fights for what he believes in, and his goal in life is to make Panem a better place for everyone.

AramisLumiere Seventeen | Male | District One
Aramis is a rhymer. Everything he says rhymes, and if he can't find a word that rhymes, he makes up his own word. Sometimes it'll make sense, but most of the time it doesn't. He's a career at heart, but sometimes he gets obsessed over the small things, and it'll take a lot to get his mind off the item at hand. Aramis collects things that many wouldn't find important. Just scrap things that have no value, but to him it's the world. Living in district one is fun, and he trains when nobody is watching because he doesn't want to draw attention to himself. He has a fierce temper, and sometimes people get in his way, and they hold him back from succeeding, and it makes him angry which is why he doesn't do much of anything while others are watching. Plus, he's a loner. All of his items have to be organized because he freaks out and panics when one thing is out of order. One time he organized books because he couldn't stand seeing them out of order. He trades things illegally, and that's how he makes the most of his money. But Aramis doesn't care because in the end it's up to him to make his life perfect, and as long as he's happy, nobody else matters. His plans for his life is to open a store to sell what he collects to make more money.
Salarian Eighteen | Male | District One
Salarian was never interested in training for the hunger games. Growing up, his father wanted him to become a skilled swordsman, and he wanted Salarian to enter the hunger games as a volunteer to bring glory to the district; however, Salarian never wanted that. Watching the hunger games left a huge impact on him. Seeing how ruthless tributes became in order to survive destroyed him on the inside, so during the hours of training, he pretend to listen to what his father was saying, but in all reality, he wasn't paying attention at all. When he finally declared that he had no interest in training to kill people, his father kicked him out of the house saying he was no son of his. It was a hard life for him, going from having everything he ever needed to suddenly having nothing at all. He thought his life was over until Morgan took him in. Morgan became a father figure to him. When he first arrived, Salarian was taught how to meditate, and how to use his body as a weapon against an enemy. He learned to take their movements and use it against them. Soon he realized that all lives matter. The ruthless careers mattered. The criminals mattered. On his eighteenth birthday, Salarian realized that Morgan was a friend to his father. His father surprised him by saying he was proud of him, and that he had put him to a test. Not believing him, he became angry, but the words he was told rang true. All lives matter including those who do wrong.
TazeAlexandrite Eighteen | Male | District One
Taze's life hasn't been the easiest for him. It started when he was younger and his mother enrolled him in the training academy. At first all was fine, and he was excelling with weapons. He fell in love with a spear knowing what it was capable of doing. One day someone challenged him to a fight, and Taze being the cocky person he was decided to go for it. Step by step he watched his opponent learning his moves until he finally struck. Taze struck with such a force not only did it disarm the kid, the blow ended up being fatal. Ever since that day the image of his spear impaling the child has never left his mind, and he gave up training stating that it wasn't needed anymore. Now, Taze works as a janitor at the training facility. That is as close as he'll ever get to holding another weapon. When he's not working, he spends his time at a local bar drinking alcohol and sharing terrible poetry that he came up with himself. Taze has a heart for those around him, and he never wants to see anyone hurt because he saw first hand what fighting could do. He's working on turning his life around now, and who knows, maybe one day he'll step back into the career training, but for now he wants nothing to do with it, and plans on staying as far away as possible.

DewyMendritzki Fifteen | Male | District Two
Dewy loves working with his hands building and making things, and instead of taking the career training route to become a monster for the hunger games, Dewy wants to become a blacksmith. Sometimes he runs around snatching things just to start learning to create various items. Yes, he knows he has to build weapons for the other careers to use, but it doesn't really bother him since he has somewhat of a career mindset. But he doesn't always have the easiest life. He's been bullied for so long, and he struggles trying to overcome those odds. He's not like everyone else. Sometimes he's a doormat for others to walk over. He's been belittled. Told he's not good enough, yet every single day he does what he can to rise above it. Maybe it involves reading a book. Or just sitting outside watching storms. Even counting stars. That's enough for him. He's just a kid trying to live his life, and he only prays other people leave him alone. It's all he asks for, and maybe one day his wish will come true.
EvanderBirch Seventeen | Male | District Two
Evander was born Matthias Evander Birch, but he prefers to go by Evander. He lives with a lot of regret and remorse over the loss of Cassius in the 63rd games, Beatrice in the 65th games, Ares and Hannah in the 66th games. Whenever Beatrice died, Evander refused to train as a career anymore. He didn't want a part in training because even those who trained the hardest failed in the hunger games, yet Evander wanted to make his family proud. That's all he ever wanted. Evander mourns Ares the most, yet Apollo thinks that Evander was best off dead. Evander found him a girlfriend, and they were together for a while. Recently she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, however his girlfriend died during childbirth leaving him a single father to a child named Lexi. Evander allowed Apollo to watch after her while he took a nap, and he found them missing from the house. The first place he looked was the training center, and sure enough he was there. Blinded by rage and anger, Evander punched Apollo in the face releasing the career locked inside. Now, Evander allows Apollo to take Lexi training with him. A monster has been released, and Evander will do whatever he can to contain it, but it doesn't look good. Lexi is his entire life, and he would do everything in the world to make sure his baby girl is safe.
HvitserkHammerfell Seventeen | Male | District Two
Being apart of the Hammerfell family is interesting for Hvitserk. A lot of his time is spent lingering in the shadows of his family, but there will come a time when he steps into the light allowing everyone to know who he is. He genuinely cares for everyone in his family, and he mourns their loss. But he's not one to speak up about it. He's very laid back, and very introverted. He's used to watching his brothers get the attention, and that's fine by him. Sometimes he enjoys picking on his brother, Ivar, but he knows that his life isn't easy. It has to be hard for someone to want something so bad, that it's nearly impossible for him to reach it. Like the other Hammerfells, Hvitserk wants the crown, and part of him is a little jealous at all the failed attempts so far. He had a chance to volunteer, but he wouldn't leave his family behind as the watched another brother journey through. Maybe one day he'll open a training center to teach people the correct way to fight because right now they're doing it wrong in his eyes. District two should wear a crown more often than those from lower districts, but that never seems to be the case. He loves fighting and causing trouble, he breaks curfew a lot because he just doesn't care. But this is his life, and he'll live it how he wants to.
KaidanArterius Eighteen | Male | District Two
Growing up, Kaidan was a career at heart. Every second of every single day he devoted to training. Every hour throughout the night Kaidan plowed through the training center learning different weapons because it was his goal to become the victor of the hunger games, but it all changed after an injury destroyed his leg shredding the muscles, tendons, and ligaments leaving him a broken man. Now he walks with a cane. Living in district two has been hard for Kaidan because most of residents train hardcore for the hunger games including his sister, Liara, but his life doesn't revolve around killing anyone - it's safe to say Kaidan wouldn't harm a fly. Most of his life is spent learning first aid, and when he's at the training center, he spends time at the different survival stations learning survival techniques. Brute force alone isn't going to win the games, but Kaidan still believes he has what it takes to survive the games, but he never plans on volunteering. A lot of his time is spent healing people, and helping people who are in need. Kaidan has opened up his own first aid station away from the training center because his new hobby is healing people, but it comes with a price because the injuries he sees haunts his mind reminding him of his shortcomings.
OdysseusHammerfell-Alezander Eighteen | Male | District Two
Odysseus had a "fuck you" attitude growing up. He's a career who always trained for the games. His life goal was becoming a victor for district two, but it all changed after Mason died. Odysseus was broke, and confused, but he never stopped training. He wanted to better himself to prove that he was capable of winning it all. It was working perfectly until Orion volunteered for the 70th hunger games. Odysseus was shattered. So many emotions ran through his mind as he stood in the justice center saying goodbye to Orion. Odysseus begged him to fight and to win, but he was met with a harsh reality. Orion volunteered to die. He wasn't going to kill anyone. He said he was going to die. When Odysseus left the justice center, he sucker punched a peacekeeper so hard it broke his jaw. A few days passed by before a peacekeeper knocked at his door with orders to arrest him. It was a moment of truth. Odysseus had set out on a path of destruction, but the arresting officer, Kit Gresham, was up front with him, and a bond was formed. Odysseus promised to set his life on track if he survived his stay in the detention center, but his stay hasn't been easy. The torment and torture thrown at him has been enough to break the giant leaving only one question. Is he capable of surviving? After returning home, he found out his brother was killed in the hunger games, and then he watched as Torka was reaped then saved only to volunteer to die the following year.
RooseveltZayn Thirty-Three | Male | District Two
From a very young age, Roosevelt enjoyed fighting especially with his best friend. It was a hobby, something he enjoyed more than anything in the world. His parents wanted him to quit because it became an obsession. It was something more than just after school activities. Roosevelt wanted more. Every second of every single day, Roosevelt stood prepared for a wrestling match. Even though he lost almost everyone match he fought, he never gave up because he wanted to make something of his life, and that was the only way he knew how. Now he worked as a training at a training academy teaching people the art of wrestling. He showed them his technique and how it worked for him. Roosevelt made sure they understood defending themselves was a huge priority when it came to fighting especially hands on. Sometimes they would listen to him, but other times they wouldn't.
WaylanAcuna Sixteen | Male | District Two
He's rather shy, and doesn't like messing with people, but maybe it has to do with how his father treated him. For as long as he can remember, his father mocked his disability making fun of him because he can't read. Having dyslexia was a sin according to his father, and one day Waylan had too much. He ran away from home living on the streets staying away from everyone else until he was taken into a gang. Making explosives became his way of life, and now he enjoys demolishing structures, and buildings, but when it comes to having a cold heart, Waylan doesn't have it. He's on the innocent side compared to most, and he doesn't feel that he's a criminal despite playing the part. He prefers working with numbers because it doesn't involve much reading, and he asks questions trying to learn, but in the end he always ends up wadding up the fragile sheets of paper with words etched into them. His father likes to mock him, and Waylan doesn't understand why. It's not his fault, but it definitely puts him down. Waylan hates that he's dyslexic, he hates that his father looked down on him for something that wasn't his fault, but he realized this is how his life would be. Now he's happier, and he's learning to live again. He's the youngest of the people gathered around, and he has this baby face making him look more innocent and younger than he truly is.

DerechoSinclair Sixteen | Male | District Four
Cocky and arrogant are only a few words to describe him. His entire life is devoted to making sure he overcomes the odds. All he wants is to be the only child once more. He desires his parents full attention, but sadly that can't happen. He has a younger sister and a younger brother, and he hates them both. His sister knows how to push his buttons, and she enjoys seeing him angry, but sometimes he says things he'll one day regret. Maybe it'll take him dying to realize that all he needed was someone to care for him. Somewhere deep inside he may find it in his heart to care for her, to show that he does love her. Hopefully, it won't be too late. He collects fish skeletons, and he enjoys flaunting them about. It's his entire life.

Flunking out to the career training program is something he'll never forget especially as his family lists every mistake he made. For one positive he heard ninety-nine negatives hence the name ninety-nine. Ninety-nine reasons why he couldn't swing a sword or hold a knife registers through his mind every single day, but it doesn't push him down. A smile remains etched within the walls of his face. For each time someone pushes him down, Ezera finds a way to stand tall offering words of wisdom for those in need. His parents don't care for him, so most of his time is spent locked away within the walls of the training center cleaning up messes after training sessions have finished, and then he's on the water where he wastes the rest of his day away. He's kind and compassionate, but he's alone, and yearns for a friendship. He's helped many careers continue their journey instead of letting them give up.

He's a friend true and true, and he may easily be the one person that never lets anyone down even if it means taking a step back and giving them the chance they need.
GenesisReese Eighteen | Male | District Four
Strict parents ruled his life. Every single day from the time he could walk, his parents had him outside training. His father wanted Genesis to become the best he could be, and for the longest time it was all he wanted to for himself. Throughout his entire life, Genesis wasn't afraid of bullying people. He wasn't afraid of making himself appear stronger than he truly was because it protected his sister from the wrath of his parents. But when he turned eighteen, Genesis stopped training, and he moved out on his own. Eventually he bought his own boat, and he stopped caring about training until he learned his sister was being forced into it. Going behind his parents back, he secretly helped his sister teaching her all he knew because he wanted her to live a life without fear.

One day he'd find her, and he'd make everything right; at least, that's what he hoped.
IrvingMarlow Eighteen | Male | District Four
Looking through a glass at the past lingering behind him hurts. It's nothing but a tidal wave crashing down against the shore wiping out the face of the earth. Irving loved her and treated her with the utmost respect, but that was all a joke in the end. Every single day after returning home, the words I love you. fell from his lips, yet she never said them back even after their son was born. All she wanted was his money, and she never wanted nothing to do with the child they both brought into the world together. Every penny he made poured into her box where she let it run dry until he had no more. After a long day, Irving returned home to a note on the door and his son sitting inside the house. He had no more money and she left him behind along with his son. Shattered pieces crashed against the ground, but Irving picked them back up slowly as he made his journey through the training center and riding the waves. Being a career isn't easy especially when he works several hours a day just providing for him and his son, but it's the life Irving wants to live. Falling in love with someone who had no interest in him was the worst mistake ever, but Irving has found his way, and he's learned to love again. All he has to do is look into Kenn's eyes, and all the pain goes away, and that's all he needs. An innocent child brought out the strength Irving needs to succeed.
MysteriaIshtar Seventeen | Female | District Four
Mysteria has a brother named Ozzy. Throughout her entire life, she's trained for the games, but her brother was never interested in becoming a career, and it pissed her off. She was devoted to becoming the best she could be, and one day if she never became a tribute of the hunger games, Mysteria had a strong desire to become a peacekeeper. She watched as her parents lived the perfect life, and she wanted to follow in their footsteps despite her brother's undoing. She's never forgiven him from running away from home. Mysteria wasn't afraid to betray, and she'd say one thing to the person's face, but behind their back she would do another. It was all about her, and she wasn't afraid for someone else to realize that. Her harsh temper made it hard for people to get along with her, but at the same time, she enjoyed watching younger children run and scream. Where her brother failed, Mysteria wouldn't. Pleasing her family was her main priority, and she wasn't about to let them down. So instead of spending time on the beach, Mysteria stayed locked away in the training center until the doors locked at night, and then when nobody else was looking, she'd allow herself the chance to relax. She enjoyed making knots for fishing.
TypheriusKrearns Seventeen | Male | District Four
Ty spends his entire life trying to please his family, and that causes him to stay in the closet. He's not very good at hiding who he truly is, but he wants to make sure his parents stay by his through thick and thin. When he's not home, he's at a friends house, and he dresses how he wants, and he dances through the house listening to music. He's tired of being something he's not. But at the same time, he's learning to live a double life. Though, his world turned upside down when the tsunami hit district four. Several broken bones left him lifeless and almost dead as the building crashed around him. And that was when he met Kirito Miristioma, a victor from district eleven.

But the bigger question is, will he survive the lasting effects of the tsunami, or will it claim another victim?
Typhoon Nineteen | Female | District Four
Typhoon lived a happy life, and all was well. She enjoyed hanging out with her family, and she loved everything about life, but she always knew she was a little bit different. Sometimes she never felt like she was the right gender - she felt like she was a male trapped inside a female's body, however, Typhoon also realized she liked being girly sometimes. And she got tired of her parents telling her it was only a phase she would grow out of. A lot of times, she ended up in fights with her parents, and the yelling always got bad. It didn't help that she never had the desire to build a relationship with anyone at all other than family. But now she wishes he could take it all back. The tsunami wiped out her house, and wiped out her family. Her parents are currently missing, yet they're presumed dead. She searches all through the district trying to find them. She knows they're still alive, at least that's her biggest hope. Thankfully, the O'Hana family took her in as one of their own, and they completely understand her, but it's not her home. Every day she walks away, and she heads out to the beach to look for any sign of hope. Ty won't give up until they are found. She's learned a lot, and she will never forget what her parents taught her.

FalconElsu Nineteen | Male | District Five
Working has always been his way of life. From the time he wakes up to the time he goes to sleep, Falcon is doing something. Whether it's working at a bakery for his job during the day where he cleans up pots and pans, and sweeps the floor, or working as a Janitor at night, he's doing something. His family is important to him, and since his parents are unable to work, Falcon does what he cane to make sure his family is taken care of. Sometimes he goes to sleep hungry, and he doesn't know where his next meal will come from, but he does what he can to make sure they have at least one meal every other day. It's not enough though. It's never enough, but he learns to make do with what he has. It's hard for him to watch other families flaunt about swinging their bags of lunch knowing they have plenty to eat. His family comes first, and if it means he has to starve to death, he'll do just that. He knows what has to be done, and he'll do what he can to make it happen. When he's not working, he's trying to learn to read. He can read, but it's hard because letters move around spelling out words that aren't even on the papers. Maybe that's what is stopping him from getting a good job. One day he believes he'll have enough money to open his own factory, maybe then his family will survive.

KryptoniteZei Eighteen | Male | District Six
Kryptonite was always interested in physics and chemistry. His lifetime goal was to become a chemist, but when his mother took him to a friend's house, Krypt decided it would be fun to mix a bunch of chemicals together without thinking of the outcome. The house he was in caught fire from the explosion, and his mother, twin, brother, and mother's friend ended up losing their lives. Now Krypt has a terrible fear of fire, and his goals went down the drain, and he's stuck taking care of his father while he drinks himself into the oblivion. And broken promises became a reality as Krypt started drinking himself. One time, he was running from the bar with a group of people, and ended up getting shot in the foot, and losing his foot.

PlutoGravity Thirteen | Male | District Six
Pluto is part of a big family, yet he's the runt, and he's always going unnoticed. Talking isn't easy for him, but he tries to act out in order for his brothers and sisters. He has a few invisible friends that he spends his time with because they acknowledge his existence. Usually, Pluto will stare at the person standing in front of him hoping they'll start the conversation because it's easier than trying to start the conversation. Most of the time when he talks, his gaze stays fixed on the floor. He yearns to be like his family, but he's too young, and he's afraid of his own shadow. And when he's out with them, he's never noticed. Pluto has gotten used to being invisible, but at the same time, he wants a friendship nobody else gives him. Everyone deserves a friend, and Pluto wants to become a popular person in the district, but being shy hinders him from having a relationship with anyone outside his family, and invisible friends. He cries himself to sleep a lot because he's so young, and forgotten by the rest of his family. Maybe one day he'll find a true friend in the world, but until that day he's going to read and stay locked away, and make sure that he does well in school. His dream job is an engineer of some sorts.
