: Ossanlin (Andalite
) ; Firin ~ Rythil (Rebel
) ; Varekil (Andalite
: Prince Prime (Captain)Physical Features/Appearance
: Ossanlin is tall and well-built, even for a male Andalite. He has a well-defined upper torso honed from specific weight-training, and his lower section is the size of a quarter-horse rather than that of a deer. His tail is also a tad longer than that of a typical male Andalite, and his blade somewhat larger. He has a full coat of deep royal-blue fur flecked with almost imperceptible streaks of silver. His eyes are a bright, vibrant sky-blue, and when viewed in darkness, one can see that his main eyes emit a very soft internal glow. His hooves are muted black, but with a certain sheen. His tail blade is just a hair off-white in color, but when moved through light-glare it takes on a strangely iridescent quality, almost seeming to shift colors with its movement (though this only happens in sunlight or very bright environmental lighting).
Ossanlin carries himself with the strength and assurance of a being used to commanding soldiers and one who knows his own worth. He emanates an air of strength and stability that helps to bolster his soldiers’ spirits even in tough times.Personality
: Ossanlin is kind, caring, and open-minded. He keeps a tight ship when on-duty, but tends to loosen considerably when off. Ossanlin is companionable when he’s not busy running the ship, and will happily share a drink or an afternoon feeding with the meanest of his men. Ossanlin is also heavily committed to his own ideals of rightness. So heavily, many believe, that it borders on fault. Ossanlin will always do what he considers to be right in every situation. He attempts to act for the good of his soldiers and the People as a whole, even if it means hurting a few along the way, himself included.
Ossanlin has never believed in the Electorate’s propaganda due to his upbringing and has striven to eliminate the biased attitude from his soldiers as well. Ossanlin thinks for himself and judges individuals for themselves, and only upon personal observation. He is steadfast and loyal to his friends and allies, and a scourge to his enemies. Though he abhors ruthlessness, Ossanlin is more than capable of it where necessary. Ossanlin has done and will do again, things that many would consider to be cruel or even monstrous (figuratively). And though he does mourn his actions, he does so in private, never allowing his soldiers to see even a milligram of what many would consider weakness. So too does he privately mourn the loss of every soldier under his command. He works through his emotions in his own way and attempts to gain strength from every experience.Equipment/possessions
: 1x Basic Andalite Field Kit with one modification.
Instead of one standard handheld Shredder, Ossanlin carries two modified, personalized Shredders that have slightly enhanced energy stores and an improved lens assembly made of seerlix
crystal that enhances energy focus and efficiency. The crystals also cause the weapons to emit a high-pitched hum when fired instead of the characteristic “Tssaap”
of typical handheld Shredders.
2x Enhanced Analog Fighting Blades.
These swords, made primarily of a neutronium weave alloy, resemble Earthling katana
in form and function. Each sword is 1.3 meters in length with the bottom .3 m clothed in an ergonomic, high-grip tsuka
-type handle with stylized handguards shaped like crescent moons. The functional portion of each blade is precisely one meter long, and gracefully curved backwards on a slight bias. The blades are single-edged. Due to their neutronium weave, the twin katana-like swords are capable of absorbing and diffusing focused energy fire (including that from both Dracon and Shredder alike). The neutronium weave also makes the swords virtually unbreakable. When not in use, the two swords are held in plain, slightly-curved satin-black sheaths that are attached to either side of the belt at Ossanlin’s waist and held back along his lower body to minimize hindrance to personal maneuvering capability.
1x Command-com wrist-panel mounted on his left fore-arm.
This wrist-panel is an accessory component of the ARC system available only to field-commanders and officers. It allows the commander to interface with every ARC inside his/her domain, causing them to display communiques and pieces of useful or required information for his/her Warriors via each soldier’s ARC emitter matrix.
Various personal items within his capacious quarters, including but not limited to:
1x Holo-loop of his mother and father and his home bowl
1x Luxury sleeping cube
1x Personal mobile computer
1x Luxury toiletries unit connected to his main quarters
Several holo-art projections of wide-open expanses from the Homeworld hanging on the otherwise sterile walls
His old flight-patch emblazoned with a silver Tail Fighter and the callsign “Slaedreth" printed in silver around the bottom. It is displayed in a small, trans-polymer stasis box on the rich-colored verdian
Various sundry items***Firin ~ Rythil***Name(s)
: Firin-985 / Rythil KyneeRace
: Male (Self-identified) / MaleStation
: Engineer Elite (First Engineer)Physical Features/Appearance
: Firin looks as unremarkable as any other Yeerk. Rythil is of average height and size amongst Hork-Bajir, but he is more fit and toned than the typical Hork-Bajir. His skin is an unremarkable green, but his reptilian eyes have bright, royal-purple irises. Rythil’s blades are on the slightly-larger side of average, though certainly not anything to cause remark. He does keep them razor-sharp despite the lack of a need to peel bark.Personality
: Firin is a technical-minded individual. Despite his host’s combat capabilities, Firin is actually skilled at working with Rythil to fabricate and fix things. Firin isn’t terribly open-minded, but discussions with his current host have taught him the value of not underestimating anyone. His logic-based personality sometimes comes off as aloof, critical, or even condescending, though he usually doesn’t mean things that way. He’s not hot-headed or combative usually, but he does make use of passive-aggression when it suits him. Firin prefers to work with his machines or theories instead of socializing, but he can BS passably if forced to, or if filled with enough redin
Rythil is more emotional than his controller, demonstrating a deep compassion for all life…but he defaults to logic when necessary. Rythil has a high-functioning intelligence, a bit of a “throw-back” from the genetically-engineered mental-slowness in the majority of his race, and he’s more than capable of philosophy and logic. It was Rythil who, through logical discourse, convinced Firin that the Empire itself was illogical, and the only acceptable option was rebellion against the Council. In social situations, Rythil generally takes full command, leaving Firin to his own introverted thoughts. He’s fairly empathic and genuinely cares about other people and their problems. Rythil is a loyal friend, and tries to be friendly with everyone. He almost never gets angry. The same cannot be said for Firin.Equipment/possessions
1x Over-engineered Dracon that has a variety of settings that allow Firin to adjust the beam width, angle, intensity, pulsation, and other functions. Not because he has need of it and not because it’s slightly more useful than a regular Dracon…just because he can.
1x Enhanced cube computer. It’s capable of greater processing power and speed with a smoother, easier interface.
1x “Omni-tool.” A device contrived, designed, built, and coined by Firin himself, it takes the place of multiple self-contained tools including but not limited to:
1x Self-contained med-kit. (It’s presence is stipulated by his host, who argues that he’s
the one who gets hurt when Firin’s “perfectly safe” efforts turn out not to be so.)
1x Standard transponder/communicator.
1x Five octave Sony electronic keyboard.
During the evacuation, he lost his drafting table, easel, and all the rest of his furniture, but managed to save most of Rythil’s paintings. Most depict scenes from the Hork-Bajir Homeworld and are rather beautifully done. They’re packed away right now with the rest of the things he’d managed to save from the base and abscond with when those dirty blue-furs attacked. He also managed to preserve his musical keyboard.***Varekil***Name(s)
: Physician Elite (First Medical Officer)Physical Features/Appearance
: Varekil stands at slightly shorter than average height for Andalites. He is as slight-of-frame as the majority of his species, and walks lightly. His fur is deep, rich blue peppered with individual purple hairs if one looks closely. His main eyes are genetically heterochromic, one vibrant green and one sapphire blue, both stalk-eyes are blue. His tail-blade is slightly narrower and longer than average, giving it a slimmer appearance than most tail-blades. He is barely 20 years of age UGTS.Personality
: Varekil isn't terribly out-going and tends to default to introversion. He often seems surly and agitated thanks to his new position, however he is a kind and caring individual once you get past his outer layers. Varekil's passion has always been healing, making others well, saving lives. He is well-learned in medicine despite the fact that he has only been trained as a field-medic, but tends to disparage his own somewhat-formidable knowledge on the subject and always seeks to learn more. While it is more important to him to develop new and better medical techniques for Andalites, he has made friends with one of the human medical practitioners and seeks to supplement his medical knowledge to also support the Yeerk, Human, Hork-Bajir....and even Taxxon crew complement. And even though he's generally quiet, he will readily and happily share his medical knowledge with those whom are interested.
Of course, the reality of battle cannot be prepared for and Varekil often finds himself wishing he'd taken a different career path. But his desire to heal and to learn make him persevere despite all of the adversity and hardship he's had to endure.
Varekil disparages morphing to heal and is quick to point out that "morphing isn't always an option," and "there are some things morphing won't fix."Equipment/possessions
1x Standard handheld Shredder worn at his belt
1x Bio-Line Scanner (an advanced biological sensor which interfaces remotely with his ARC).
2x ARC holo-projection units (which can display different information in front of each main eye).
