This thread is going to be regularly updated with characters I need for Jupiter! To start us off, though, I have two characters and an open concept.
Jupiter's birth family in the Von Bergankar clan. They're a very old family of feline pokemon with ties to many other noble families. The Von Bergankar clan is notable for acting as stewards and guardians of several small villages in what is otherwise untamed wilderness. However, recent generations has seen the decline of the family in both wealth and influence. The assassination of King Jeannot II was the nail in their metaphorical coffin - the period of upheaval after his death left the family scrambling to protect their people and territory. The clan is currently considered to be quite impoverished and lacking any real power.
The current head of the family is Lady Selene von Bergankar. An alolan persian well-respected for her business sense and charismatic personality. While she has brought back some of the old power that the family once possessed, she is the frequent focus of scandals due to her many love affairs and numerous illegitimate children. She has repeatedly declined suitors and instead has named her eldest daughter (Phoebe) as her heir. There's a persistent rumor that she was once in love with a vagrant and that's why she never married. Selene herself asserts that she simply doesn't want to share power with a husband.
Selene is also known to be a somewhat neglectful parent due to her busy schedule and lack of personal interest in her children. Her older children would have noticed a change in Selene's parenting methods shortly before the birth of Jupiter and Andromeda. The children mostly left to their own devices and the older kids are expected to take care of their younger siblings. Duty to the family is highly stressed and children are taught to think of themselves as part of a greater whole rather then individuals.
At this time, Selene and Phoebe are not adoptables as they have no reason to leave their home! You are perfectly welcome to make an original member of the family, though! Jupiter's half-siblings are especially preferred. Siblings eligible to be played would be between 16 - 30, as Selene is in her early fifties.
I've included three songs with each adoptable to help convey the general vibe of each. They also have a suggested sexuality but these are only preferred unless otherwise stated.
Andromeda "Andy" von Bergankar
alolan meowth or regular meowth - pickup ability - undersized!
18 years old
bisexual or lesbian. would strongly prefer that she at least be partially attracted to women.
Jupiter's fraternal twin and his only full-blooded sibling. As the smallest of many siblings, she's grown to be assertive and even vicious in order to survive in her competitive family. She inherited the same call to travel and rebel as her brother but found this aspect of herself stifled by the restrictive environment of her family home. She stuck around out of a sense of duty to her siblings but eventually learned of her lost brother and set off to find him. She feels no small amount of resentment towards her mother and the position she was forced into by her.
She's a rather jaded character with more social skills then her brother. However, she has a strong distaste for social conventions and is scornful of expectations for her to act like a 'lady' - most of her childhood involved repressing herself so that she would fit to her mother's expectations. Andromeda is likely to be exploring the new options available to her after leaving her family and is most likely an outlaw - however, this can be discussed!
GRRRLS - AViVA
No Respect - Destroy Boys
Boys Wanna Be Her - Peaches
suggested character plots:
struggling with internalized misogyny.
joining an outlaw group.
avoiding family members that want to drag her home.
Pan - TAKEN BY SPIBE!!!
Thievul - Stakeout (can be changed)
Must be attracted to women, can be bisexual!
Jupiter and Andromeda's father. A mysterious vagrant who had an off and on relationship with Selene until he abruptly broke things off. He was - and still is - genuinely in love with her but found that he couldn't live the life of a noble. He is not aware of his children as Selene had not yet told him she was pregnant.
He's charming but too attached to his life of crime to ever make a good friend, parent or lover. He tends to do things simply to be contrary or to annoy others and lives his life with no true attachments. He's the sort of thief to leave notes taunting the guild. He treats life as a game and ultimately feels apathetic to others after leaving the love of his life. A cunning trickster but is basically the archetype of '20 intelligence, 0 wisdom.' While he will happily steal, con and destroy property he is deeply uncomfortable with actually acting violent to someone who doesn't 'deserve it.' Basically an arrogant jerk!
Very flirtatious and likely has had multiple lovers. However, he's a loner and is not likely to have serious attachments - this becomes especially true after he leaves Selene.
Do It All The Time - I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME
King Rat - Modest Mouse
Don't Trust Me - 3OH!3
suggested character plots:
meeting andromeda and jupiter and coming to terms with his place in their life.
getting over selene and moving on with his life.
learning to let others in.
problems with the law!
