-Leopardfire is a calico male feline with long, brown hair. He has a hairstyle similar to the feline version of Tom from "Tom Sawyer". Leopardfire's large, bright blue eyes are always shining for adventure. His feline age would equal out to be about thirteen human years, though Hawkears always says he acts half his age. His hyper-active attitude always seems to get himself into trouble, and he has been known to have an obsession with brownies. Usually, he is drawn as a normal cat, though in anthro/feline form he wears shorts and a shirt which says "Summer". Leopardfire belongs to no story in particular, and is usually drawn for comic relief. He is basically a carefree cat who lounges around on weekends and causes trouble with his best friend, Hawkears. Aside from his childish attitude, Leopardfire has been described as "adorably attractive". Leopardfire denies that he has had any crushes aside from his ex-girlfriend, Spottedflower. Though many others suspect his best friend, Hawkears.
-Hawkears is a small, dark brown feline. She has green, emerald eyes and long lashes. Hawkears has an extremely-tomboy attitude and refuses to go near anything remotely girly. She has a jagged, carefree hairstyle much like "Tails" from Sonic the Hedgehog. She is Leopardfire's sneaky partner-in-crime, though the two treat eachother as playful enemies. The usual exchange of teasing words has grown into a sign of affection.
-Talia Nightengale is an anthro cheetal. Being 75% cheetah and 25% serval, Talia has an ability to outrun her enemies with speed, as well as hear within a large radius with her abnormally large tufted ears. Talia is quick and talented with a bow and arrow. Her weakness is her ability to communicate well with others. Being hot-headed, aggressive, and a bit naiive, Talia never was able to listen to others in order to master her true power. The cheetal eventually discovers that her true power lies in staves and magic. The main protagonist of the story, Talia suffers from the weights of her past. Talia is the rightful heir to the "Sacreds" camp, though having resonsibility of being a princess is the last thing this tomboy wants. She was heired into the throne after the death of her older brother, and had a forced betrothal to a sand cat named Aelous. After years of dealing with being an heir, she decided to run away. After seducing Aelous before silencing the sand cat with a dagger, Talia slipped away and was never heard from again by her kingdom. And that's where the actual story begins.
With him gone... I can escape. My father doesn't care a wit about me, so he won't be searching will he? But... she had to distract him. "I'm glad you understand." Aelous smiled. Talia used her right hand to lean over and stroke Aelous's face. "Atleast I still have you, right?" She smiled. A dreamy expression filled Aelous's eyes. "Of course. With your mother out of the way, that's just the sooner we can rule this city." Talia's hand which was secretly holding the dagger under the blankets flexed. How could he possibly think that way? Talia leaned her head into the pillows deeper and Aelous slowly crawled on top of her. Talia kept a manipulative smile on her face, while all of her inner feelings were screaming curses at Aelous. "The sooner we can rule..." Talia echoed, and Aelous in closer to Talia. Their faces were inches apart, and she looked deeply into the eyes of her enemy. "You know..." Talia murmured, leaning back ever so slightly. Even if she all was an act, she had absolutely no intention of kissing the sand cat. "Maybe things should return to the way it used to be..." Aelous was confused at first, but decided to go with it. "Back to the way things were..." He murmured, eyes faraway. Talia had her moment. She quickly whipped the dagger out from under the blanket and gripped it tightly. Aelous's vision immediately darted over to the dagger. She lashed out quickly and sunk the tip of the dagger straight through Aelous's back. The tip of the dagger protruded through the sand cat's chest and he didn't even have enough energy to scream. His icy eyes transformed into nothing but slits as he fought to breathe. He quietly reached out to take out the dagger as he stared down at it, but Talia shoved it in deeper. Aelous let out a strangled sound as blood tricked from his lips. He looked as if he was trying to breathe, but couldn't. Such a thing brought a smile to Talia's face. Four years with this Avie around here was far too long. Aelous's hollowing eyes stared deeply into Talia's, but he couldn't form any words. Silence wavered through the horriffic scene, and dark red crimson blood immediately poured from the wound as soon as Talia leaned back and removed the blade from Aelous's chest swiftly. Aelous had one last attempt for a strangled breath before he fell limply right on top of Talia's chest. She immediately pushed him aside and watched as her white bed sheets were stained with Aelous's blood.
Anubis is a mysterious black panther with chocolate brown eyes. He has extremely faded black spots on his tail and hips. He has long black hair which comes close to covering one of his eyes. Anubis is known as "The Dreamwalker". He tends to speak in riddles until you get to know him, and often tries to keep his profile to a minimum. His black pelt makes it easy to sink into the shadows, and he tends to travel at night. Anubis is described by others as secretive, mysterious, and a bit untrustworthy. His smile is manipulative, and he is very hard to trust. Anubis is Talia's love interest, yet the two spend most of their time bickering and denying their feelings.
Darkness. What's going on? I opened my eyes and found myself standing in a dark forest. There was swirling mist all around me and I squinted into the distance. I blinked a few times to try to clear my speckled vision until concluding... That wasn't my eyes. Random black patches filled the forest as if someone had forgotten to complete an unfinished painting. The ground underneath my feet was cold and wet stone littered with patches of grass. The breath caught in my throat as I spotted a figure off in the distance. It looked like an Avie, but part shadow. He walked forward a bit and I found myself staring at him as if there was some sort of magnetic pull. The cloaked figure wore complete black robes, but the more I stared the more I felt... what? Mysterious. The cloak's colors seemed to morph from black to blue to purple the more I looked. Images came and went, but if you stare long enough they would disappear. The robes reached all the way down to the Avie's feet which were pitch black with sharp white claws at the end. The figure's face was covered by the cloak he was wearing, and I felt myself start to tremble as he spoke. "How odd..." He murmured. His tone of voice wasn't rough, but smooth like honey. My eyes widened as moonlight glinted off the Avie's eyes. They glowed dark yellow behind his cloak which soon morphed into a light brown. Despite my fear I managed to sum up, "Wh-Where am I?" The world seemed to spin underneath me. The world beneath my feet shifted from grass to rocks to sand in a matter of seconds. The air also changed along with it: warm, cool, then back to heat again. I brought a hand up to feel my forehead, then trailed it down to the back of my neck. I certainly didn't have a fever, but the spinning around me made me slightly nauseous. Nothing was clear. Dark mist swirled all around our bodies and the landscape before me while rushing winds howled in my ears and made it even harder to identify the Avie before me. I tried to speak only to find that I couldn't. I couldn't move. Wind buffeted my hair and fur roughly and I fought to keep my ground. A strong wind gust blew the Avie's cloak right off his head. I found myself able to move once again and turned my head to look the mysterious male in the eyes. Dark brown, almost black. The more I looked, the more even the color of his eyes changed. A deep purple, dark navy, then back to brown before returning to black. From the looks of it, this Avie was a panther. He studied me with narrowed eyes and his long black hair flew wildly in the wind. He looked closer as if he couldn't see me. "H-hello?" I yelled which caused him to squint even more. "You don't know I'm here, do you?" I whispered slightly to myself. I felt a strange feeling in the pit of my stomach and I let out a sharp wail as I felt the ground cave in underneath me. Rocks crumbled quickly and I lashed out frantically to grab hold of any remaining rock. Whatever I tried to grab crumbled, and the dark figure did nothing to save me as I plummeted into oblivion.

Kade let out a long moan and placed a hand on his forehead. He sighed and rolled over, unsure of what to do. All of his thoughts were jumbled, and nothing seemed to be clear. All he knew is that there was something out there: corrupting his facility. A glitch in the system that needed to be terminated. "Kade?" Said a robotic voice and Kade kept his back facing her, icy gaze glaring daggers at the wall in front of him. "Kade, what's wrong this time?" The voice repeated, and Kade bit his lip in annoyance as the tapping of claws on the metal floor eventually got closer and closer. "Answer me." The voice reapeated, and Kade knew Shantii was right behind him. Shantii reached out a paw to touch Kade's shoulder, which set off a spark in Kade. Quickly, the aggressive male spun around and glared at the cat. "Don't touch me." He hissed, and Shantii let out an unnerving chuckle. "Don't forget who's in charge here, kitty." Shantii teased, emerald eyes staring unnervingly into Kade. "I haven't." Kade muttered, staring straight back. "Good." Shanti replied, mouth twisting into a sickening grin.

-Shantii is a robotic ten-foot feline which lives in the (undecided) Dimension. She has hawk-like eyesight from her enhansed emerald cat-like eyes. Her large ears rotate in a 360 degree direction, she has a long skeletal neck, and six toes on each paw. She has a cheetah-like build and long legs. Her tail is eight feet long and made from steel, equipped with a spear-like tip and jagged edges. It is believed that Shantii was created by a long-dead mad scientist who had created a facility for his testing experiments. His main focus were cats, so the scientist invested large quantities of money into what he decided to call "Shantii". He was able to bring the extremely intellectual feline to life, exept it wasn't until after did he realize his feline's inner computer was already being corrupted by multiple viruses. The viruses mainly affected the feline's mind set and was able to completely warp the intended views of the feline. Unable to stop the viruses, the scientist was overrun by his own creation and was killed. The man was the only person to know how to shut down the almost-immortal beast. Shantii wasn't alone in the facility: Most of the scientists's minor work was also affected with the rapidly spreading virus. Since Shantii was created from the same indestructable material as the walls and floors of the facility itself, Shantii was able to find a way to bend the facility and creations inside of it to her bidding. A part of Shantii's programming had included the knowledge of a distant planet which she somehow knew as "Earth". Shantii was able to aquire information by planting a virus inside the most defenseless laptop she could find. The laptop is later revealed to be Kade's, and part of it is created by the same material as Shantii. Through distant knowledge, Shantii believes this laptop once belonged to her creator. The sane side of the feline had no idea what had become of her creator, while the virus still thriving inside her did. The virus was afraid the creator knew how to shut Shantii down, thus leaving Shantii lifeless and the virus powerless. Shantii had no true connections to Earth, so she used coded messages which Kade was able to depict. Her mind set was if she could take control of this human who possibly knew how to shut her down, and gain control of his computer she would have no reason to fear. She would also have a connection with the human world.
Any more information would, once again, be considered spoilers. xD
-Kunai is the main protagonist of the story, and is your steriotypical theif. Kunai is a sly eighteen year old boy with a manipulative tone and appears an innocent bystander is harsh situations. He has long, slightly wavy coarse black hair and amber eyes. Kunai has been alone since the age of twelve: constantly fending for himself through stealing from others. Kunai carries around daggers for the purpose of cutting purses, ropes, and just creating things. In truth, Kunai has never killed any creature. He usually runs from rough situations rather than stand and fight. Since Kunai has never been caught for his theiving actions, the townsfolk see him as just another citizen and don't accuse him of anything.
Kunai smiled devilishly and gripped the golden coins in his gloved hands tighter before stuffing them into his pocket. This will get me three nights in the nearest inn. He thought. Of course, Kunai didn't earn the coins. He'd simply pick pocketed a patroller in the little down down by the gorge. "Hmmph." The dark haired boy murmured triumphantly and twirled a dagger in his left hand and held a flashlight in the other. He had long black hair which had a spiky texture towards the back. Annoyingly, it always fell in front of his eyes, but he didn't mind much. The eighteen year old was nothing but an outlaw; always scavenging his gold rather than working for it. Of course, he was never caught so the patrols didn't know what to look for.
-Yoraiu is a small, mutant boy who was found by Kunai at the age of sixteen. Yoraiu was previously an experiment victim which turned out as a failure. The innocent boy was taken at the age of twelve and performed tests on until he was left to die at age sixteen. Through his testing years, Yoraiu was the most successful experiment. He was given extreme mental strength and agility through various injections. Though there was that one fateful day where the boy was accidentally injected with the wrong DNA. It was the DNA of an ancient and sacred creature: a dragon. Yoraiu went through the slow, terrible process which left him with rugged horns jutting from his skull, large silky webbed wings, and a four foot reptile tail. His once amber eyes started to dissolve into a bright red tint and he was abandoned, along with the old testing lab, to die because others claimed he looked like a demon. Yoraiu went through weeks without food, and just enough water to keep him surviving for a few weeks. When Kunai found him, he described Yoraiu as a breathing skeleton. Through the years, with the help of Kunai, Yoraiu's gaunt frame was replaced with the look of a healthy mutant. Yoraiu had also become extremely fond of Kunai: the one who saved his life. Ever since Yoraiu's rescue, the mutant had never wanted to leave Kunai's side.
Kunai turned a corner and found a small door. His hand hovered over the knob, but finally turned it. With a small push, the door creaked open. The room was lit with an eerie dim light which came from a small lamp on a wooden desk. Strewn across the desk were what seemed to be abandoned papers. He took one in hand and tried to read it only to realize it was in a different language. "Damn." He hissed and shined his light down the darker part of the room. His heart lurched when he saw something. No, someone. The mysterious boy was faced with his back towards Kunai. Kunai took a sharp breath as he studied the smaller boy's strange body. A long reptilian tail sprouted from his tailbone and he had long elvish ears. Small tan horns rested upon his head and two webbed wings were folded on the boy's back. He was completely silent except for one word. "Professor?" Kunai didn't reply, but continued to stare. The boy was chained down by a collar around his neck, and the boy was skinny as if he hadn't eaten in weeks. He wore no shirt which exposed smooth pale skin. Kunai couldn't help himself from trailing his vision lower. He wore nothing besides black tattered shorts. When no answer was heard, the dragon-boy turned around slowly as if moving was a burden in itself. He looked Kanai in the eye, and the smaller boy's eyes narrowed in fear. Dusty green hair fell in front of his blood red eyes and he brought his arms up as if to protect himself. Kanai stared, wide eyed, at the strange creature. He had those elfish ears, but his facial features were more human than elvish. His face was dotted with light freckles, and the defined features told Kunai that he must be about seventeen years old despite his small size. He knew that radiation sometimes caused strange things to happen, but he'd never seen something like this.
