Character concepts for a new story I'm writing. :)
Havoc – the virtual-reality sensation that has taken America by storm! It’s a wild free-for-all to nab the most points for the 100 million dollar grand prize. There are no limits, no rules, and no holding back! Havoc accepts only the 1,000 strongest and smartest teens of the nation through a series of difficult tests. Those who make into the Noble Thousand are divided into four classes and let loose in virtual reality!
These six players have teamed up in Havoc to form a force to be reckoned with – the Firefoxes!
Tess (top left) – Stealth-class. The fiery protagonist, a 16-year-old girl with a stubborn attitude and fearless persona. She runs away from home to apply to Havoc, against the wishes of her strict mother. As a first-timer, she has a lot to learn about the chaos in Havoc, and a lot to learn about getting along with others and working as part of a group.
Lilly (top center) – Intellect-class. This tiny 13-year-old girl wants only to afford the cure for her mother’s debilitating cancer. Unfortunately, the cure costs over 100,000 dollars! Lilly is brilliant and ingenious, able to crack codes and solve tough problems in a matter of seconds.
Roth (top right) – Strength-class. This 5-year Havoc veteran is fearless and feared. Having risen in the leaderboards throughout his years in the game, all the bets are on him as the most likely candidate to win 1st place. He is the de facto leader of the group, but is often harsh, arrogant, and egotistical. Neither he nor Tess back down, leading to some bitter conflicts between them.
Evelyn (bottom left) – Strength-class. This grassroots girl from the South takes lip from no one. While she might seem strict and demanding, she is also incredibly kind and generous. She is the oldest and wisest of the group, acting as the motherly figure. Able to talk down even Roth, Evelyn is the glue holding everyone together, even when the Firefoxes are about to rip each other apart.
Gavin (bottom center) – Stamina-class. Roth’s little brother, who no one ever expected to make it into Havoc. While he was more forced into the game by his family’s expectations, Gavin is still determined to carve his own path. He is sweet and gentle—properties that don’t get you far in the chaos of the game.
Kenji (bottom right) – Stealth-class. This clever Japanese boy is as carefree and laid-back as they get. He and Tess develop a playful point-earning rivalry, which develops a strong friendship between them. While he isn’t very attached to the group as a whole, he’s more than willing to back them up should danger arrive.
