Hey there Neopian-who-stumbled-upon-my-page! :) This is racerfishy speaking, but you may call me by my name, Platinum.
Now what is this page, you wonder? Well, above this text are pictures of all 11 of my lovely pets, and each one has a complex character and back story that go along with them. If you would like to read all of their back stories, they are listed on each of their respective petpages. All though, some aren't quite finished. :(
Anyways, even though the stories I write tell a lot about my characters, I wanted a little place of Neopia for my to talk about my characters in my own voice, not the voice of a narrator. On this page you can read on how the pets themselves came to be in my possesion, the process of developing their personalities and stories, and of course all about the pets themselves. Basically, I created this page so that I can drone on and on about my pets and not have to include all the details of their lives in the stories. That would take away from it wouldn't it? Its also lovely because I have all my roleplay information in one neat place and I don't have to hop from side account to side account to main account to change anything. Oh, I almost forgot, in my pet's world (much like TNT's plots) Neopets have no owners. So therefore, I am not in any stories.
Now I could talk about myself, but honestly I am not a very interesting person. I will tell you that I love to build characters, and, even though I won't be adding any more pets to my accounts, I love to hear suggestions for the pets I already have. I will also say that I hate talking about myself :) But I love to chat, so if you want to know more about me or just have a nice conversation, I openly welcome neomails. :D
Ok, so, thats about all I have to say on that subject. To visit my pet's individual areas of this page just click on the tabs above.
Guild of Aces
Founded by Q nearly 130 years ago, the Guild of Aces is an acting guild that controls and performs in one of the best theaters in Neovia. After Q cursed himself and became a specter, he passed leadership to his eldest daughter, and the leadership has continued to be handed down from eldest child to eldest child. Currently, the leader is Salvatore Malice who took over after his father's mysterious death. Sal now owns and runs the theater, and the guild itself. But, don't let their cheery demeanor fool you, the theater is just a cover for one of the most deeply connected spy networks in the Haunted Woods. In Neovia and the Haunted Woods, trees literally have ears, and Sal's network of spies have generated a fortune by selling the information to the highest bidders.
Don't get me wrong though, the Guild of Aces' theater is one of the best theaters in Neovia, and its performances are usually sold out. Before Sal took over as leader, the theater really was just a cover for the spy network, but Sal had a real passion for theater, and he wanted to pull the guild from the depths that his father had pushed it down to. He rebuilt the theater and fired and rehired many of the guild's 100 members. The current members are not only spies, but they work in the theater either as actors, stagehands, or they work in wardrobe.
The theater primarily puts on plays, but it also hosts talent shows, comedians, variety shows, and occasionally award ceremonies.
Most of the guild stays in Neovia and helps run the theater, but a select few rotate out on shifts of touring the woods, putting on shows and picking up secrets. The ones that stay home, however, are still on a job. The theater (and their favorite tavern) are hotspots for gossip and socializing, and much of the town gathers there. It is at these places that much of the business is done.
The members of the guild are very eclectic, and there are a few secret magicians and vampires mixed in with the rest. Sal (one of those magicians) has done some business on the side selling enchanted items and (on occasion) favors that only someone who uses magic can do. He will also hide someone, is the price is right. Oh, you will also notice that all of my pets who are direct members of the guild have ghostkerchiefs as petpets. The reason is back when Q was cursed, his ghostkerchief, Marius, was cursed along with him. Marius' descendants are exceptionally intelligent, and can communicate with Q and anyone descended from him (such as Sal and his daughter). Remember when I said the trees have ears? Well, actually it is the large number of these special petpets roaming around and listening. No one suspects an adorable little petpet, right? Any, every guild member is required to have one with them at all times, and the petpets will report back to Sal if anyone does anything... amiss.
Fearless Sea Captain
Back to Homepage
Name: Sharp_Scratches (Captain Scratch)
State of being: Ghost
Age: 37 (Plus 200 ghost years)
Height: 6 ft
Specializes in: Swordplay and Intelligence
Scratch was my first ever pet, I created him November 26, 2006, (exactly when I made this account) and never have any of my pets have as much sentimental value to me as he has. I spent the months that it took me to save up for my first paint brush trying to decide what colour to paint him, and eventually I settled on ghost. Since it was so long ago I can't recall what drove me to paint him ghost, but I have kept him that colour since. Over the years I have gained enough neopoints to paint him a much more expensive colour, but ghost just seemed to suit him. I would much rather spend those points reading him books and training up his battledome stats. He has seen many pets cycle through my accounts but forever has he stayed and forever will he. I just wish I can change his name, but whatever....
The only thing that took me longer to do than save up for his brush was to make up a story for him. Personality was easy, but his back story was tricky. I am satisfied with what I came up with. (For those observant readers who noticed that we are on Scratch's page now, you can read Samaryii's back story to learn Scratch's. They went through it together)
Scratch had a fairly normal childhood, aside from the fact that for most of his life he traveled with his parents on his father's ship. So, he saw the far corners of Neopia and experienced things from all over the world. When his father retired, he passed the ship over to Scratch and the adventurous kougra continued his fathers work, which was exploring unknown parts of Neopia. Awesome right? Well anyway, one day his ship was attacked by a pirate ship, and since Scratch refused to surrender to the thieves, the pirates looted the ship and then burned the entire vessel to a shell. Unfortunately, almost all the crew went down with the ship, including Scratch. There was only one survivor. Scratch could have escaped, but a captain should always go down with his ship, or so Scratch says. I guess I agree with him. So. Yeah. Now my Scratch is a ghost. His spirit is bound to a necklace that he once gave his true love, Sam, who happened to be the only survivor of the ordeal. She took the necklace to Neovia, where she had inherited a house from her family years back. Scratch particularly enjoys her family's extensive library.
Scratch is normally pretty stoic, he doesn't show much emotion except an occasional smile, unless he's around Sam. He loosens up around her, but when he was the captain of his ship he always wore his game face. Scratch isn't always the friendliest of Neopets, and he has a hard time trusting people and being sympathetic to their problems. He is tough, powerful, extremely intelligent and could easily win any fight that he was pulled into. He doesn't fight any more, but sometimes he gives advice to younger (and still alive) fighters. Mostly though, he spends his ghostly days reading every book that he can get his hands on. (Like I said, he loves books. I also have been reading him many over my years on neo.) Besides books, he loves to study alchemy (combining magic and science) even though he had never been successful in life. When Scratch was alive, he spent a great deal of time studying magic and could perform a fair amount of spells, but he lost his powers after he died. In his death he still studied magic, and now he extremely knowledgeable on the subject, and gives lessons to practicing sorcerers. Also, thanks to years navigating by the stars, he is quite the astrologist, and spends his nights studying constellations. Even though he enjoys all of these things, nothing make Scratch happier than spending time with Sam. Aw......
Since Scratch is a ghost, he is stuck in the clothes that he died in. He wears dark brown trousers with a burgundy shirt and a dark vest. He also wears boots and glasses and is never seen without his pocket watch. He also died in his smart navy blue coat and his captain's hat, but he does have the ability to take these off which he usually does. Scratch doesn't care to wear his hat and coat unless he gets summoned by the guild. Scratch also usually has his cutlass hanging from his belt, only leaving it at home when Sam tells him too. He keeps he appearance neat, never rolling up his sleeves or mussing up his clothes. His fur is blue with silver stripes and hair and grey eyes that he had even when he was alive. People usually can't tell that he is a ghost until they accidentally touch him and their hand goes right through him. I know that ghost are usually all blue and glowy, but I like my version better. Seems more natural.
Friends and Family
Scratch has only a few relations, since ghosts aren't exactly very much liked by society. But he does have a couple good friends. Samaryii (Sam) of course is his closest friend (more than a friend really) and he loves her dearly. She usually wears the pendant that holds his spirit and never lets him out of her sight. You can read more about her by clicking her her tab and reading her page.
Scratch was one of Quaone's spies back when Q was still alive, so he still keeps his connection with Q and Sal and the guild but he doesn't spy as much as he used to. Typically, the guild only calls upon him when they need old-school wisdom of some sort, but they occasionally ask him to help with decisions or problems. He is highly respected.
As for Scratch's petpet, there really isn't anything special about him. Scratch found the wadjet on a trip to the lost desert and the lightmite just found them later on. His petpet never leaves his side, and has a habit of sleeping in Scratch's coat. Sometimes I name my petpets after characters in some of my favorite books when I can't think of a good name. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books and I named Cheshire after the Cheshire Cat, my favorite character.

Sam is my second oldest pet. Back before I had side accounts, Scratch was my only pet and I wanted him to have a friend, so I made Sam. When I first made her, I painted her biscuit since it was a cheap and a cute colour, but after I sold the transmogrification potion, I painted her shadow and put her on my new side with my other newly created pets. (She lives on my main now) Sam has always been a sentimental pet for me, colour has never been a real factor in her character or her role in the stories. First she was biscuit, then shadow, and after I got an FFQ I painted her eventide. Its just a gorgeous color. When I started writing the stories, I knew that she needed a place, and being part of Scratch's crew seemed perfect, since then it gave them a place to meet and grow their friendship. I had always intended for her to be a chef, so fitting that in wasn't hard at all.
Sam's family owned a tavern in Neovia and she grew up in the haunted woods loving adventure. It was usually Sam's job to pick up shipments of food in the Haunted Woods Marketplace, and on one trip she met a handsome kougra selling interesting things that he had gathered all the way from Shenkuu. Every few weeks after that the kougra returned to sell his fabulous goods. Sam was fascinated by the items and she made a deal with the Captain for him to take her to Shenkuu if she promised to be a chef on the ship. It wasn't long after the journey started before she fell in love with the sea, the ship, and the Captain. He loved her back as well, and on the day that the pirates attacked he forced her to leave the ship on a longboat, even though she wanted to stay and fight the pirates. Sam was one of the only survivors of the attack, and afterward she went back to her hometown of Neovia and took over her family's tavern. After Q discovered that Scratch's ghost was in Neovia (he is bound to the necklace), Sam ended getting sucked into the guild as well. She isn't an official member, but her tavern is where many members of the guild gather when they're not working. Since much of the guild hangs out at Sam's tavern, it is also the place where outsiders can go and buy the guild's information. (Obviously, word of mouth is the only way they can advertise) Sam always knows what is going in the guild and since she is the face of the tavern, people know to go to her if they need to talk to one of the spies. On the flip side, she knows everyone in the guild as well, and Sal requires her to keep tabs on the members in case anyone decides to break the rules and does something that even Sal condones. Now I know you're wondering, if Scratch was alive when Q was, how could Sam live this long? Easy, she's a vampire. After the tavern was established, Q ordered Hayden (vampire) to turn Sam into a vampire as to keep her (and Scratch) tied to the guild forever. She isn't part of Hayden's clan however, as she highly dislikes vampires even though she has accepted what she has become.
Sam has always been a sweetie, and her personality is a stark contrast to those of the people that surround her. She is sweet, motherly, and emphatic. One of the great loves in her life is reading, and during the hours when the tavern is relatively quiet, she sneaks off to the library to read and relax. Even though she despises the work that she does (the guild part, she loves the cooking), she manages to stay sane and do her job without getting in trouble. Sam is also a skilled archer, and can hit targets from a few hundred yards away with her specially enchanted bow. During wartime, she uses her bow to distract targets and set off traps rather than use them directly on others. She hates being a vampire, and despite his constant pleas, she refuses to join Hayden's clan. She prefers to work alone, and instead of drinking blood, she concocts a potion that closely resembles blood using special berries that she grows herself. Sam can't find it in herself to hurt anyone, and she hates sending jobs to the guild because she knows that many of the jobs include destroying lives with information. She would gladly leave the service of the guild, but she has no where to go and her tavern is all she has. Besides, Q threatened to end her life if she ran away and Sam is extremely fearful of death, having barely escaped it once before.
Sam is always complemented on her gorgeous eventide coloring, and she takes extra pride in her long starry hair which she usually wears down and flowing. Normally she wears simple clothes such as her favorite gray dress and simple black shoes, and whenever she goes out, she usually wears her fur cloak to keep warm. When she cooks she puts her hair into a bun and adds an apron to her ensemble. She hardly ever wears jewelry with and exception of the silver necklace given to her by Scratch. The necklace is a simple silver chain with a small locket that has a photograph of Sam and Scratch in it. Even though she is extremely clumsy and is always spilling things, Sam takes great care in keeping her kitchen and clothes as clean as she can.
Family and Relations
Sam and Scratch have an extremely close bond and are inseparable. After Sam discovered that Scratch's spirit bound to the necklace that he gave her, she started to wear it at all times so that Scratch would always be with her. Whenever Scratch is needed at a meeting of guild members, Sam wears the pendant to the meeting since she doesn't trust anyone with it.
Because of her close proximity with the rest of Neovia, Sam is a vital connection to current news and whats going on in Neovia. She also notifies the guild leader of issues that might arise within its members, and since she ferries Scratch's ghost to the meetings, she has sat in on many important gatherings. Because of this, she has years of wisdom and knowledge of the guild and the other members respect her opinion and advice.
Thaddeus is one of the only other people that Sam is close to. She took him under her wing after turning him into a vampire when he was on his deathbed. She saw something in him that others didn't see, and she couldn't let someone as noble and brave as him slip away. It was her idea to place Thaddeus with Hayden, and he still goes to her for advice and help when he needs it. Thaddeus is a frequent visitor to Sam's tavern, and the two remain close friends.
Name: Thaddeus McGee (Thaddeus, sometimes Thadd)
State of being: Vampire
Age: 23 (Turned vampire very recently)
Build: Broad-shouldered and muscular
Specializes in: Hand-to-hand Combat
Ah, Thaddeus. So Thaddeus has a very interesting story; not just as a character, but how I came to own him as a pet. Now he is my youngest and most recent addition to the family, and he never would have came to be without some very special people. Not too long ago I joined the Plotters guild and chat/role-play group, and they have reinvigorated my passion for my stories and characters as well as role-play. (of course!) Anyway, they're awesome friends. :)
Thaddeus' character actually wasn't created by me, he was created as a minor character in a large role-play we were doing by my friend Tay. The RP took place during the obelisk war, and he was created to fill a position in our RP. (I won't tell the details of the RP because Tay might actually write it all down as a story :P) Anyway, after awhile he developed further to the point where he was so awesome I asked Tay if I could make him as an actual pet and she said okay and gave me the character. Cool right? It was after that he really developed into the lovable lupe that you're about to read about. Oh, I almost forgot, some of the Plotters actually show up in Thaddeus' story because I want to write it as accurately as I can to the RP. Most of it will be my writing, but some of the main parts will be recaps of the RP. If you want to know more about the Plotters and their characters, then join us! You won't regret it. :3
Since Thaddeus was a character first and pet second, his color and customization we're fully left to me. He already was a lupe, I just had to do the rest. I figured royal would suit him because of the nice dark blue fur and the awesome -disallowed_word- taystar07) for creating this fabulous character, and Makayla (epicimmortalunicorns) for giving me her Scarred Pirate Eye to complete Thaddeus' look. Thanks guys! :D
AboutOnce upon a time, Thaddeus was part of a noble household, and his father was a knight. He never felt as if he fit in though, and because of his mysterious and moody nature, Thaddeus' father denied him his inheritance. It was then that he felt his family distancing their-selves from him, and felt alone in the world. The day of his 18th birthday, Thaddeus received a mysterious letter inviting him to join the organization known as the Sway. The Duchess promised him Neopia on a silver platter and more wealth then he could imagine, and he accepted. She corrupted him though, and slowly turned his heart of gold into a heart of stone. It eventually all came to be too much, and during the war of the obelisk he slowly realized that the Duchess was just using him and discovered the monster that he had become. When she sent him to one of her lords to be executed for "outliving his purpose", he was rescued by Scratch and brought back to the only place that would accept him, the Plotter's House. They were kind to him, and his stone heart began to melt away into what was there before. Unfortunately for Thaddeus though, the next time he faced the Duchess nearly cost him his life. Luckily, (or unluckily, depending on your view) Sam got to him in time and turned him into a vampire to save his life. (Sort of) Still presumed dead by the Sway, she brought him back to Neovia to hide and join her vampire clan. Until things with the Duchess were straightened out, he stayed with the clan's leader, Hayden, and posed as his "head servant". In reality, Hayden took him under his wing and hid Thaddeus from the Duchess. Thaddeus still does some servant work, like delivering messages and fetching drinks, but it was a small price to pay for safety and peace so he didin't mind.
PersonalityThaddeus is kind, noble, and brave, but his past with the Sway and the events since have left him with a shattered heart. He has a hard time getting close to people, as he is so used to people hating him and leaving him. His friends care about him, but he keeps them at a distance, as he still believes that one day they will get taken away from him. Becoming a vampire has opened his eyes to the world more, and he is trying to remake himself after being given this second chance. He isn't quite used to being a vampire yet, and though he is being coached on how to live like a vampire by Sam and Hayden, he still struggles with the change. Despite his broken heart there are things in Neopia that make him happy, such as spending time with his dear friends, playing chess with Vyx, eating Sam's delicious food, and socializing with his new vampire clan. He hopes that some day in the future his heart will heal, but he fears that it will be long and far away.
AppearanceThaddeus is tall, broad-shouldered, and muscular. He gives off an intimidating presence, but he tries his best to hide in the shadows to avoid being seen. His fur and hair are dark blue with early gray hairs on his muzzle (mostly from stress) and he has sad, amber eyes. He could never be seen with someone like Hayden unless he dressed well, so Hayden always keeps him supplied with smart clothes, such as suits and collared shirts and ties and that sort of thing. They really aren't Thaddeus' style though, so when he goes out on his own he wears his long smoke-colored trench coat with red trim and his comfortable pants and black boots. His gold sword is almost always hanging from his hip, and he refuses to go anywhere without it. During the day he wears a gray cloak to keep the sun away and hide his face from others. Thaddeus has a large and rather nasty scar on his face that starts just above his right eyebrow and continues down over a pale right eye then down his jaw and ends at the top of his neck. It was a rather... unpleasant gift from the Duchess.
Family and RelationsThaddeus is supposed to be dead, so he never sees anyone from his past (except Masila) or anyone from the Sway. He hopes that his hiding place is secure from the Duchess, but he still lives in fear.
Masila and Thaddeus met in the Sway when he first joined are were sent to go on a mission together. He had feeling for her, but she broke his heart when she left to join the thieves guild and be with Galem. He lost touch with her then but while he was at the Plotter's house she knocked on their door looking for help and forgiveness. Thaddeus was overjoyed to have his best friend back, but soon she broke his heart again. She ran away again after that, and no one knows where she went.
Sam (who was at the Plotter's House with Scratch during the Obelisk War) turned Thaddeus and offered him the chance to come back with her and Scratch to Neovia once the war was over. He graciously accepted, and has developed a close bond with Sam as well as become one of her best customers at her tavern. As much as he loves having Sam as a friend, less can be said for Scratch, who still doesn't trust the former Sway acolyte. The two get along, barely.
Irene and Thadd were friends during their childhood when his family used to visit their summer home in the Haunted Woods. They lost touch when the family stopped visiting when Thaddeus was in his early teens, and she very nearly forgot about him. He never forgot about her though, and when he first arrived in Neovia one of the first things he did was find his old friend and re-establish their friendship. They're extremely close friends, and Thadd has feeling for her, but he tries not to let them show, since he knows that Irene doesn't feel the same way back.
When Thaddeus joined the vampire clan, he and Vyx became good friends due to the fact thay they're the only two male vampires of similar age. Thaddeus will often assist Vyx on his spy jobs, and the two will spend long hours playing chess and cracking jokes.
Even though he quit the Sway, Thaddeus kept his old albino crokabek, Squallor, for old times sake. He wanted to shoo him away, but the petpet refused to leave and eventually Thaddeus just let him stay. Squallor hardly ever carries messages anymore, but he enjoys perching on Thaddeus' shoulder, whenever Thaddeus lets him.
Name: Quaone (Q)
State of being: Specter
Age: 48 (Plus 190 cursed years)
Height: 5'7 (His height varies, he likes to appear taller)
Specializes in: Dark Magic
Quaone is a more recent addition to my Neo family. When the wraith colour came out, I instantly fell in love. It took a bit before the colour was released on a pet that I liked, but when it came out on ogrin I was ecstatic. Now the only issue was getting one. Since wraith paint brushes are in excess of 20 million, I had high hopes. I created Quaone and started zapping him while I saved. He turned some interesting colours (including elderly and chocolate twice) until one day I got the lucky zap. (I practically fell out of my chair) I never expected the ray to actually zap him, it was just a far hope. But hey, who knew? Anyways his personality came easy to me, as I only had to find a way to assimilate him into my other character's lives. I had already created the guild, so placing Q as its original leader seemed natural. His petpage doesn't have much of his story though, as I like him to be a mysterious character little is know about. Writing his story would be rather bland, so I chose to write about Sal and Irene and how they came to be part of the story. Anyway a few of my characters are based on people in real life but Q is my only character that I based (loosely) on another character from one of my favorite legacies. (Any Trekkies out there?)
Q built the guild from the ground up, and still influences his descendants that run the guild. When he was mortal, he dreamed of power and wealth and studied all forms of magic to seek out a way to live forever. Well, to make a long story short, he got what he wished for, but it was a curse, not a blessing. Yes, Q is immortal, and yes, he doesn't have to worry about overloading his magic due to mortal limits (much like faeries), but he is bound in a spirit form instead of a normal body. He also is tied to his family's house, he can't leave and his magic can't extend beyond the house. In other words, he has unlimited powers but can only use them within his prison. Stinks, doesn't it?
Q enjoys a good joke, and when he was alive he spent a lot of time hanging around with his friends and having a good time. This part of him was always there, even when meeting with clients and employees of the guild. There is a side of him that is ruthless, however, and when things go wrong within the guild he is always the first to know about it, and the first to take action. Its not often that he actually appears to his employees, but they can be sure that Q is always watching. Q never quite gets angry, he always has a suave, laid-back disposition, but nonetheless, when things don't go his way, he has a habit of giving embarrassing and painful punishments. Not always physically painful, he prefers emotional torture. He doesn't like to get his hands dirty. When he is not spying on the guild he spends his time in deep study, trying to find a way to break his curse and break out of his prison.
Quaone basically looks like a mass a swirling purple gasses (and magic) in the form of an ogrin. He was wearing pants and a sport coat when he was cursed and that stayed with him, only his clothes are made of the magic too so it blends in with the rest of him. He has purple eyes as well. Thats about it. I leave much to the imagination with Q.
Family and Relations
The leadership of the guild has been passed down from child to child ever since Q became cursed. (He prefers to leave the actual running of the guild to his children, he does give them advice often though, and they never do anything major without confronting him) Currently, his great-grandson, Sal, runs the guild and next in line is Sal's daughter Irene, who currently works in the wardrobe department of the theater and designs most of the costumes. (I do not own these two pets, they are characters that I made up just for the stories.) Q has a close bond with Sal and Irene, and watches them closely as they live their lives. Q is also closely associated with the guild, keeps tabs on his old friend Scratch, usually having long chats whenever Sam brings the necklace over.
Name: AkaiMashuu (Akai)
State of being: Alive
Specializes in: Metalworking and Machinery
I don't quite know why, but one day I decided that I wanted a bionic cybunny. I know, strange, but hey. Why not? So Akai is my only pet that I didn't create, I adopted him from the pound as a basic lenny. (I think it was a lenny, I don't really remember) Anyway, I adopted him because I didn't want to create a new pet, I wanted a well named cutie to turn into my dream, so I did. I bought the morphing potion, the paint brush, and the clothes. I rewrote Akai's story several times before I got it quite right, but ever since I got the idea of a bionic cybunny I had the basic idea down. He fits into Syiko's steam punk world, and I really wish I had drawing skills because drawing all of that steam punk goodness would be so much fun.
Akai was 18 when he was taken by Syiko to be turned into a cyborg. He was kept in the laboratory for three years before he was able to escape. He was kept as a prisoner mainly by fear, as the scientists broke him by torturing him whenever he disobeyed orders. He wanted to run away many times, but fear always kept him planted. While he was there, the scientists had him do all of the back-breaking manual labor and often had him do the parts of experiments that they were too cowardly to do. Ill leave you to imagine that up yourselves. Any way, after the first year the scientists became sure that Akai wouldn't leave, and they allowed him to go on errands for them since the scientists hated to go out themselves. The other reason that Akai stayed with the scientists was that due to his bionic parts, he was afraid that society wouldn't accept him. After running away, he joined the guild (through Vyximus) as part of the stage crew. He was able to join the spies since he is extremely intelligent, and he has an eidetic (photographic) memory. He is fluent with technology and has an unnatural talent for finding hidden information in books and paper records. The only information that eludes him that he desperately wants, is finding the scientists. After he ran away and broke his bond with his captors, they abandoned their laboratory and relocated frequently. Akai knows that the scientists are running from him and he has devoted all of his spare time to finding them.
Akai has a very warm heart, but the three years he spent in the laboratory caused him to build a shell around himself that he lets few people crack into. Most people know him as shy and quiet, with a sort of know-it-all attitude when he is talking about something that he knows well. He never talks about his past, even with his close friends, and he gets extremely defensive when people talk about his bionics. Even though he has this tough outer shell, he is extremely empathetic and is a great listener. He is extremely protective of his close friends, as he has no family to love. One of the things that he desperately wants out of life is to have a family of his own, but he's afraid that no one would want to be with him due to his appearance. The three years in the laboratory took a great toll on him, and his heart is filled with shame and regret of the things he did in the lab, though he tries to suppress it the best he can by working and keeping his focus on other things. There are too many things to do to be sad, he says. He is also extremely determined and stubborn, and will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. Akai also has an insatiable appetite and usually eats more than all of his friends combined at meals. He also always carries food around and constantly snacks.
Akai was painted skunk as a young child, so he has the typical smoky grey fur with the white stripe on his back from his forehead to his tail and burgundy eyes. His shaggy hair is white as well. Three of his four limbs are bionic: his entire right arm and shoulder, his left leg and hip, and his right leg but only below the knee. His right ear is bionic as well as his right eye. The metal is pitted brass that has dulled and scratched over time. The metal plates on his limbs only cover his joints, and in between all of the gears and parts of his bionics can be seen. The plates on his face, ears, and (formally) his chest are brass as well. He wears typical clothes, usually boots, trousers, and a collared shirt. When he goes out into the world he prefers to cover up as much of his bionic parts as he can, so he always wears long sleeves and often wears gloves as well. He normally wears a black cloak when he goes out, with a large hood to cover his face. He also wears the cloak for a practical reason, since it has numerous pockets to hold whatever he wants in it. Usually its tools and food. Akai always has food on him.

Akai's family died in a fire when he was four years old, and from that point on he lived in the Neovia orphanage, making him an easy target for Syiko. He was the sole survivor of the fire, so Akai is the last one left of his family.
Sievva and Akai met by chance at the general store when he was allowed out on an errand. The two became very close, and Akai started to have feelings for her, but he isn't sure if she feels the same way back. After he ran away, Sievva and her brother (Vyximus) took him in and he still stays there. He keeps offering to move out, but Sievva always begs him to stay. Vyx didn't become very close to Akai until he moved in with them, but now the two are thick as thieves. It was Vyx that pulled the strings that allowed Akai to join the guild, and the two often work together.
Akai didn't have a petept before joining the guild, and he loves having Gasket keep him company while he works. The little ghostkerchief is never far from his side.
Trick or Treat?
Name: Aneviuche (Ani)
State of being: Ghost
Age: 6 (Plus 20 ghost years)
Specializes in: Keeping Secrets
Ani was my only pet that was made on the fly, I had no personality or plans for him, he just popped up. Well not really, I made him when I won a Halloween Paint Brush from the Test Your Strength Game. I had no need for the money at the time, so I wanted a to paint a cute Halloween pet. Acaras seemed awesomely adorable, so I made Ani and painted him. He doesn't really have a solid place in my legacy, because I always had a hard time finding a story for him. Eventually I found a place for him, but he still doesn't have a big role. Or a small role really. He is the only pet I have in this situation, and I keep him because I love him as much as my other pets, and he is just gosh darn cute. I mean, come on, just look at him. :3
Ani had a typical childhood, or as typical as a six year old could have. He loved Halloween, it was his favorite holiday, and every year ever since his father allowed him he has gone out trick or treating with his friends. Schnicks usually went with him, but this year he got tied up with work, and, not wanting his son to go alone, forbid Ani to go out. Not wanting to miss out, he climbed out a window and went candy hunting anyway. He never came back. Alive, anyway.
Ani has the sweet innocence of a kid, and he is always happy and joyous. Unlike a lot of ghosts, he has no boundaries or limits, so he is able to roam the streets eavesdropping on the citizens of Neovia. This has made him very knowledgeable about the town, and the people who live in it. He also knows every inch of Neovia and where everything is located. He should, since he has had many years to learn. (If he was still alive, he would be roughly Vyx's age) Even though he has been around for awhile, he still has the mentality of a child, and still acts like one.
Ani was born with similar looks to his father, but he was painted Halloween at a young age as a birthday present. He is an acara with black fur and hair, white tipped ears, white feet and hands, and white speckles around his eyes. He wears his skeleton Halloween costume.
Family and Relations
Ani never had a mother, she left Ani on Schnicks's doorstep when he was an infant. Therefore, he has a close bond with his father. After his death, Ani spent most of his time exploring, but he often visits Schnicks at home. Schnicks is the only one that can ever get any information out of Ani, as Ani likes to keep to himself. He doesn't like the guild knowing any of his secrets. The two still have a strong father and son bond though. Ani has no other relations, as his father is the only one that he will talk too. (Except on rare occasions)
Pillow spends mostly all of his time sleeping on chairs around the house. After Ani's death Schnicks kept him around and takes care of him. Schnicks and Pillow don't like each other very much, but Ani would never forgive him if he got rid of the plumpy.

There was a time in my Neopets career that Dr. Sloth was kind enough to give me a draik transmorgification potion. Of course I sold it, and that was how most of my pets became the color (or species) they are now. Qutrii was one of these pets, but she did start life out as a cybunny when I made her on cybunny day a few years back. Qutrii is one of my oldest pets, and I painted her long before I started writing pet pages. I made her because I thought that halloween cybunnies were gorgeous, and I still think they are. It only seemed natural that she be a vampire, but it took awhile before her story was developed. Her back story anyway, when I created Vyx I had already had the intentions to make them a couple. Very twilight no? :P Im kidding, I didn't notice how similar the two were until I finished the story and proofread it. This is a good example of my constant changing my mind, the story has required three rewrites so far. You would be surprised how often I rewrite my stories. guess thats why it takes me so long to write them. :3
Qutrii was born into a wealthy family; she went to a fancy prep school and lived in the finest neighborhood in Neovia. Her father passed away when she was just a baby however, and Qutrii's mother controlled her entire life growing up. She wanted Qutrii to be an aristocratic lady, marry a wealthy man, and be the queen of Neovian social circles. This wasn't what Qutrii wanted however, she wanted to be free and live her life how she chose; and she wanted to be with Vyximus. Her mother highly disproved of Vyx though, since he had no social standing and the family had little money; she attempted to break the two up and marry Qutrii to a wealthy politician in Neovia. By this time Qutrii had just turned eighteen and was fed up with this kind of life, so she packed her few prized possessions and ran away to live with Vyximus and his sister Sievva, where she remains now. Not long after running away; Qutrii joined the Guild of Aces. This wasn't difficult since she had Vyx's connection, and the guild was in need of a new medical expert, since their previous one had ran away. A few years after that she had Vyximus turn her into a vampire and induct her into his clan, a group which I'll talk more about later.
Even though Qutrii was groomed her entire life to be a lady of high society, she developed a rebellious and tough personality. Yet despite these qualities, she has a very soft heart, whimsical style, and a gentle disposition. Just don't get her angry. Qutrii spent a lot of time pouring over books while she was holed up in her house and has developed an amazing knowledge of potions, herbs, and some magic (She smuggled these books in, her mother didn't believe in magic). She is highly intelligent, and using these skills and others learned through practice, she took a job within the guild as their main healer. It is an important job, as the spies often get into fights and it is much easier to go to one of their own for healing than a hospital. Even though Qutrii has a small knowledge of magic, it doesn't extend much pass simple healing spells as she is mostly self taught and has had little training. (The little she has had has been from Vyx) Aside from healing, she is very good at dealing damage as well, her and Vyx have spent hours sparing together, and Qutrii has picked up tips from Sal as well. One of the negative effects Qutrii's mother had on her was that due to all the emphasis that she put on getting married one day and how it was to be Qutrii's only life goal, Qutrii has vowed never to get married. Even to her soul mate Vyximus.
Qutrii is tall and not very slim with a sturdy but attractive build and unusual strength for a girl. Her flawless white fur is complemented with burgundy red neck and tail fur, and the undersides of her hand, feet, and ears are red as well. Her black hair is cut in a boyish style to the base of her neck, are her eyes are ice blue in contrast to the rest of her fur. She has never been girly, and that is reflected in her clothes. Whenever she can, Qutrii wears leggins and a tunic-type top, with boots and a canvas satchel containing everything she might need. Normally, though, she wears a whimsical dark purple dress when she is out in public. She wears little jewelry, usually no more than a bracelet given to her by Vyx, and sometimes wears her long floppy ears tied behind her head.
Family and Relations
Ever since Qutrii ran away, her mother has severed all contact with the rest of her family and has disowned her. So, Qutrii doesn't have any contact with her biological family anymore.
Vyximus and Qutrii met as children when Qutrii got lost on her way home from the library and stumbled into a street fight. Vyx felt bad for this strange little girl and after defending her from the other guys, offered to help her find her way home. She found that she liked this boy and asked him to teach her how to street fight. The two have been inseparable ever since.
Qutrii doesn't get along very well with Vyx's little sister, Sievva. She has hated Qutrii from the first day that they met, and Qutrii has done everything that she could to get Sievva to like her more. This has been to little effect, and poor Vyx is often caught in the middle of the two. The situation has gotten better ever since Sievva was turned into a zombie, but the two still fight from time to time.
Syiko and Syiku
Name(s): Syiko_Syiku (Syiko and Syiku)
State of being: Alive
Specializes in: Experimental Science
So what is a scientist doing in Victorian Neovia? Well steam punk of course! i have always loved steam punk, and I wanted to fit it into a character that wasn't from Moltara, so here we are. I morphed my lovely hissi when I sold that draik trans potion I mentioned earlier. I had dreamed of owning a mutant hissi for ages before I acquired Syiko and Syiku, so it was a dream when I bought the potion. You seriously have no idea how badly I wanted a mutant hissi, I'm just upset that it wasn't in time for the conversion so I could have had a UC hissi. Whatever. I like the converted one better anyway. His story came easy to me, a two headed hissi that is a mad scientist seemed oddly natural too me. The hard part was making the story unique and trying not to sound cliche or corny. Usually when I sit down to write a story the words just flow to me, but I had to think hard and seriously edit this story before I was happy with it. The early versions of the story sounded... stupid. Even now I'm not totally satisfied with the story, but its okay. Not my worst work.
Growing up, Syiko was that strange kid that never talked to anyone and was always seen with his nose in a book or doing some strange experiment. It only made sense that he became a full time scientist and inventor. He didn't make very much money in his profession, so he kept trying to make a new and revolutionary invention that would keep his funding secure. He became obsessed with the science of cloning, and would not stop until he built his infamous invention. He thought it would work, as it had on so many petpets, but alas, he was not a petpet. After that incident something snapped in his mind and he became a recluse, throwing inventing out the window and pursuing a career of more hostile experiments. On Neopets. Have you read Akai's page? The unfortunate cybunny wasn't the first, or last; there were many others but most didn't survive their encounter with the deranged hissi.
Syiko may be a genius, but he has always been as cowardly as they come. He is extremely anti-social and, fearing the reactions he would get from people, only ventures out to hunt for new test subjects. He doesn't even do half of his experiments himself, he used to instruct Akai what to do and watch from across the room as Akai performed the experiments on the helpless Neopets. After Akai ran away he became intensely paranoid and has relocated frequently to avoid Akai's wrath. Normally he feels in power over his victims through fear and punishment, but since Akai escaped he deeply fear his, as the hissis have no power over the cybunny. Syiko's other head, Syiku, is a much snarkier version of Syiko, and the two other argue and their personalities play off each other quite nicely. He does share his twin's fears and interests though, so the two agree on staying put and practicing their twisted craft.
Syiko is not an ugly hissi, before his incident he was quite the charmer in town (he grew out of his childhood shyness, until he grew another head, anyway). His emerald scales used to shine like... well emeralds, but now he neglects his features and his scales have dulled with years of grime and dirt and his once white teeth are now yellow. His eyes still retain their glowing golden color, but instead of shinning with intelligence they are now full of fear. His twin head is alike in every way but instead of golden eyes Syiku has deep indigo eyes. Syiko could never figure out why that happened.
Family and Relations
Besides the lab rat petpets that live in the lab, Syiko has only one connection to the real world. Or had anyway, Syiko and Syiku only see the world through their experiments, and Akai was their link to the world before he left. The scientists heavily fear Akai now, that bionic attachments that they gave to him have made him very strong and the three years of emotional damage have made Akai extremely fierce and determined to find them as well. The scientists know that Akai won't ever give up and they always manage to stay one step ahead of him. They always leave behind some failed experiment for Akai to find just to torture Akai's already damaged conscience.
Liir was one of the earlier petpets that Syiko put through the cloning machine, and unlike most of the other petpets, this little Quetzal was determined to live. Now Syiko and Syiku have grown quite fond of the little guy(s) and they keep him around as reminder that they aren't the only ones in Neopia that are different.

There is something about mutant xweetoks that has always intrigued me, and I had always wanted one. Schnicks is an example of how sometimes the personality of a character just builds around them when I start to use that particular character in stories. It was trickier to find a backstory for Schnicks, as he is still a rather underdeveloped character, but the one that I came up with suits him. Schnicks isn't one of my main characters, but I still love him. After awhile though, I got tired of the mutant xweetok look and I changed him into a mutant acara. It fits his story better anyway.
Schnicks grew up in the highest of society, wealthy as can be, but he still had a difficult life. His mother died when he was tweleve, and his father passed away from a rebounded spell while trying to bring his mother back to life when Schnicks was thirteen. Since then he took care of himself, but turned to his best friend Sal for help throughout the years. When he turned eighteen he joined the guild, and worked his way up to be Sal's second in command. (This was easier than it should have been because the two are best friends) Sal and Schnicks spent most of their adolescence and young adulthood street fighting in the back alleys of Neovia, but it all ended when Schnicks injured his leg when he was twenty three. Ever since his father died as a result of a faulty spell, Schnicks despises magic and stays as far away from it as he can. So, when he shattered his leg, Schnicks refused healing with the help of magic, despite Sal's pleas to help. Because of this, Schnicks's leg healed wrong, and from then on he walked with a heavy limp. He accepts this though, and refuses to allow Sal to fix his leg with magic.
Schnicks has always been easygoing and suave, but he is cold to the core as well. On the outside he sweet and the life of the party, but those who actually know him know the real Schnicks. The guild knows him as heartless and cruel, and no one ever wants to get on his bad side and bring out his temper. He is a party animal, is always trying to woo another woman, and gets in trouble with the law a lot; but he always manages to buy his way out. In Neovian society he is known for throwing wild parties and spending his inherited fortune extravagantly. Magic runs through his veins, but he keeps it and his family's association with magic a secret. Sometimes on rare occasions the magic shows itself in strange ways, but he suppresses his powers. He does have a soft spot for his son however, and when Ani turned up on his doorstep he spoiled him rotten until that fateful night. Ever since then his heart has become even colder.
Schnicks was born a mutant acara, and all his life he faced bullying, since in a small town like Neovia, freaks aren't well appreciated. He responded to this with his cruel personality. He is known for wearing colorful, extravagant clothes, and flaunting his wealth constantly. He is usually laden with jewlery and heavy cloaks, and he always carries a beautiful carved cane with a jewel on top.
Family and Relations
Schnicks usually distances himself from people, but he is very close to Sal. The two met when there were children and school, and have remained close ever since. Sal is the only person that sees the friendly side of Schnicks, and he has learned to put up with the normal Schnicks most of the time.
Ani and his father had a close bond, despite their many differences. After he died, Schnicks became a different person. Ani's ghost still visits Schnicks a lot though, so the two are still close. He is the only person who Ani will talk to, and Ani will only divulge his secrets to Schnicks. The acara is constantly frustrated by his son's childlike manner though, because if he had lived Ani would be an adult now.

Specializes in: Hiding
Sievva was the one that started it all really, she was the first (and only) pet that I made solely because of a character I imagined in my mind. Hers was the first story I wrote, and the one that I built the rest of my characters around. It's interesting for me to think back to when I made her and think, "wow, it all started here." Her story is one of my favorites, mainly because since it was the first I had no character boundaries to work around and I was able to create freely. Now with characters like Vyx I have other characters and back stories to work around, so I can't be as original as I used to be in the older stories. Sievva's story was difficult to write, as I had this idea in my mind but I had to make it Neo appropriate. Because of this I rewrote Sievva's story twice after the first version, first because it was bland and then to make it more interesting and mature but still Neo appropriate. The other part that I had difficulty with the transition from Sievva being alive to her transformation into a zombie. I wanted to make Vyx be the one to magically turn her, but without it being cheesy or making Vyx look like a monster (he did in the original version). I'm quite satisfied with the final story.
As for her colour, she was striped when I first made her since I wanted a cheap but nice colour because her character was what mattered. Not long ago I saved up some neopoints to paint Q wraith but since he ended up getting zapped by the ray, I used those saved up points to paint Sievva grey. I could have painted her zombie, but I find the color rather disturbing. Sievva was magically preserved, so she wouldn't look like that anyway. I think the colour works well with her personality. Gosh I wrote a lot. :/
Sievva and Vyx's mother left the family when Sievva was four and Vyx was twelve. Their father never talked about her, and five years later he left too. Sievva was nine and Vyx was 17 by then, and Vyx took their father's place in the guild. Sal let him join more because of pity, but they needed a new piano player in the pit orchestra and Vyx filled the spot nicely. When he became a vampire four years later, she ran away from home for a little bit because she was afraid that he would attack her for her blood, but when night came Vyx found her and brought her back home. We all know the Haunted Woods is dangerous at night. She ran away a few more times over the years, usually when her and Vyx got into fights or when she was particularly depressed that day. Sievva always came back, as she had no where to go and she was afraid to be away from her brother for long periods of time. The other thing that Sievva was afraid of was the guild, since enemies of Vyx would often try to hurt her because everyone knew that Vyx cared more about Sievva then he did himself. Vyx constantly worried about Sievva, and after a close attempt on Sievva's life, he turned her into a zombie. Later Sievva found out that he had been planning this for a few years, but he waited until she was 18 to actually try it.
Sievva is kind and emphatic, but she has suffered from depression for most of her life. Vyx has tried everything that he could to make her happier, but the depression always came back. See how the grey colour fits in now? Anyway, Sievva isn't always sad though, when she spends time with Akai she is happy as can be. Sievva has a very dry sense of humor and sometimes attempts to make jokes, but usually they just come out stupid sounding. According to her friends she doesn't have much of a sense of humor, almost every jokes they play on her she takes directly to heart. She despises the guild, and never forgave Vyx and her father for taking part in it. At first Sievva hated Vyx because of his job, but eventually she came to accept it as long as she didn't have to take any part in it. She is very shy and enjoys her solitude, and the time that she doesn't spend with Akai or Vyx she spends reading or experimenting with magic. Sievva is awful at magic, (Vyx has tried to teach her), but she tries anyway.
Sievva has dark grey fur with darker grey freckles and hair. Her tail is unusually long for a zafara, and she often knocks things over with it. Her hair is long and silky and she usually wears it braided over her shoulder. Even though Sievva and Vyx are different species and colours, they have similar dark, red-brown eyes. Yes, I know that I have used this similarity before with Ani and Schnicks, but I think that eyes are a real family feature that most relatives share with one another. Okay back to Sievva. She has always loved fashion, so her wardrobe is constantly changing; but the one thing that has always stayed the same is a blue cloak that she wears that was given to her by her mother when Sievva was nine. Sievva loves jewelery, especially rings, and she never wears less than three rings on each hand.
Family and Relations
Sievva's memory of her father is fuzzy (he was almost never home due to work), and she doesn't remember her mother at all. Often Sievva asks her brother about their parents and why they left, but Vyx always refuses to talk about it and tells her that he doesn't know. She keeps trying though.
Sievva and Vyx are as close as two siblings can be, and despite their constant bickering they always make up and protect each other. There are many things about Vyx that Sievva wishes that she could change, and quite often when they fight Sievva wishes that he wasn't her brother. She always takes it back, but something deep down in Sievva's heart wishes that she could change her brother, even though she says that she loves him as he is. The two still have a close brother-sister bond, even though they have many issues that they still have to work out.
When Sievva and Akai are together, she feels the happiest that she can feel. When Akai ran away from the lab and almost died, Sievva nearly had a heart attack from fear that he would die and leave he alone. He lived, and ever since then Sievva has worried about his obsession to find his captors and destroy them. She's worried that he will find them and try something stupid, again.
Sievva and Qutrii do not have a good relationship. The two have much in common, but Sievva still despises her. Sievva doesn't like it that someone else holds Vyx's heart besides her, and she is convinced that Vyx cares more about Qutrii than he does about his sister. This isn't true, but nothing the two vampires have tried has helped the relationship. After awhile Sievva accepted Qutrii as a part of the family, but she still highly dislikes the cybunny despite her constant attempts to make things better.
Eponine (Le Mis again!) the quintilc was given to Sievva by Qutrii as an act of goodwill after she joined the guild and received her ghostkerchief. Sievva enjoys scaring the poor petpet by pretending to light it on fire. She wouldn't hurt it, but since it was a gift from Qutrii, Sievva enjoys messing with it. Don't tell the PPL.
Name: Vyximus (Vyx)
State of being: Vampire
Age: 21 (Plus 3 vampire years)
Specializes in: Spying and Nature Magic
Vyximus is one of my favorite characters and his personality has gone through more changes than all of my other pets. I first created him because I love Halloween gelerts (Vampires!) and later on I figured that he would make a good brother for Sievva. When I first wrote Sievva's story and began to develop Vyx's character, I had intended to make him cruel and heartless, much like how Schnicks turned out. After making more characters and integrating him into relationships with other characters, I decided that the vicious personality didn't fit him, so I changed it. It fits better into the story anyway, and it makes it easier to explain why he did what he did to Sievva. Sometimes things just work out. ;)
If you have read Sievva's page already, then you know that Vyx and Sievva's parents left them when they were children. Vyx was close to his father, but he was never able to find out why his mother left, despite his persistence to find out. He doesn't know why his father left either, Vyx came home from taking Sievva to see a show at the theater and he found a note from their father that said he was never coming back. According to the note he had left for the safety of Vyx and Sievva, but Vyx finds it hard to believe that that was the only reason.
Vyx's father was a member of the guild and Vyx was his apprentice, a spy and magician in training. After he left, Vyx took his place in the guild despite being only 17 and started to study magic with Irene under Sal's instruction. Mainly he is a spy, but in the theater he is the pit orchestra's piano player. After four years in the guild Sal revealed that he wanted Vyx to take Schnick's place as his second in command when Schnicks retired, and he had Hayden turn Vyx into a vampire to ensure that he stay with the guild and to make Vyx more powerful. He also wanted a direct link between the guild and Hayden's vampires.
Because of his overnight success, Vyx has many enemies with the guild. They constantly try and pick fights with him, but Vyx always manages to worm his way out of the situation. The jealous Neopets managed to find his sensitive spot, and they started to launch attacks on Vyx's baby sister, Sievva. After a couple years of Vyx fearing for her life, he turned her into a zombie to ensure that she can't be killed. Naturally, Sievva wasn't very happy about this.
Vyx may be a spy, and a very good one at that, but he isn't a terrible person. He enjoys the challenge of his job, but at home and around his friends he is a different person. He is sweet, caring, romantic, and often feels much regret about his job and the people he has hurt with his information. Vyx is extremely protective of his sister and Qutrii, and he does everything he can to make them happy and keep them safe. At work he always has an opinion about something, and he never refuses a job. He works himself to exhaustion, often taking on as many jobs as he has time for, and for him failure is never an option. The little time that he is home, however, he spends relaxing with Sievva, Qutrii, or more recently Akai and Thaddeus. Because of his job and extensive training, he has become highly skilled with magic and hand-to-hand combat, and he has an uncanny ability to tell when people are lying (he is very good at cheat :3). Some of his favorite things in the world include a good book, seeing Sievva's smile, playing the piano on stage, and spending time with Qutrii.
Vyx is tall and lean with defined muscles. His long face is complemented by short black hair, and his eyes are similar to Sievva's, dark and red-brown. He has a knowing look about him, as if he knows your secrets and your past. His fur is blue-silver, and his spindly ears and tail are usually twitching with restlessness. His torso and arms are covered with intricate tattoos, and he enjoys showing them off, except at the theater and when he is spying. (If people recognized his tattoos it would give him away) He dresses neatly, black trousers, boots, vest, and under the vest a violet button up shirt that he usually wears with the sleeves rolled up. When he goes out in daylight, he adds a simple black jacket, sometimes gloves, and a black fedora to keep the sun off his face. (What little sun is in the Haunted Woods anyway) He doesn't believe in wearing jewelery, and he hates carrying things around in his pockets exempting a few knives.
Family and Relations
Vyx never attempted to hunt down his parents, as he believes that if they didn't love him and his sister enough to stay, it wouldn't be worth it to find them and try and bring them back. Vyx also hates his parents for what they did, and vowed to never forgive either of them.
Vyx cares deeply about his little sister, and will do everything that he can to keep her happy and safe. The two can't avoid fighting, and despite their close bond sometimes the conflicts they have get extremely heated. Their relationship has been especially strained every since Vyx turned Sievva into a zombie.
After Qutrii and Vyx met, it didn't take long for her to work her way into his heart. He loves her dearly, and was hesitant about turning her into a vampire because he knew the consequences that would show themselves. After she ran away from home, he took her in despite Sievva's hatred toward Qutrii. He is often the buffer between the two when they fight, and it hurts him that the two people closest to his heart can't get along.
Irene and Vyx have been friends their entire lives, ever since Vyx's father joined the guild when Vyx was five years old (Irene was four, Sievva wasn't even born yet). The two are best friends, and they are constantly teasing each other and making jokes. Despite this, the friends get into fights often, and often will not talk for days. They always make up though, as they have been through many hardships together. Irene is always there for Vyx, and he will always be there for her.
Vyx never had much contact with Akai until he saved his life, but after that the two became close. Even though Sievva is Akai's best friend, there are times when he enjoys having a guy to hang around with, especially when Sievva and Qutrii are fighting. Vyx also pulled strings to let Akai into the guild, and because of this Akai is forever grateful to him.
When Thaddeus joined the vampire clan, he and Vyx were immediately drawn to each other because of how close they were in age, as most of the other vampires are older. They get along well, and Vyx enjoys having another sparing partner.
Vyx has a good relationship with his boss Schnicks, and after his father left Schnicks took Vyx under his wing. He is often hard on Vyx, but the gelert finds ways to deal with it and tries to impress Schnicks whenever he can.
Vyx was forced into joining Hayden's vampire clan, and he is one of the youngest members. At first he despised them, but after awhile the clan and its members started to grow on Vyx, and they have accepted him and one of their own.
SalvatoreName: Salvatore Malice (Sal)
State of being: Alive
Specializes in: Healing and Enchanting Objects
Before I painted Sievva grey I was tempted to create Sal as an actual pet and paint him grey, as he is a grey ogrin in the stories. I didn't do that because Sal is a very complicated character and if I made him he would need a petpage back story and I am behind as it is on my pages. Besides, I have developed his character outside of neo and if I did write his story, it would be too mature for this site. So, to resist temptation, I have him just as an imaginary character.
So anyway, Sal is the current leader of the guild, and he has so far been the most liked and productive leader second to only Q himself. He is extremely skilled in magic, and he is most skilled in healing and enchanting objects. He is charismatic, handsome, sly, and tough as nails. Even though he is rich and immensely powerful, he is as humble as they come. His hard emotional shell was built up all through his childhood, as is was far from pleasant. He also lost his mother and brother and came close to death when he was 16. When he was 25 his father and wife died shortly after Irene was born, leaving him to run the guild and raise his daughter with only the help of Q and his few close friends. He has a strong bond with his daughter, the two are extremely close and he is extremely protective of Irene. Sal's best friend is Schnicks, who actually is my pet so you can read about him elsewhere on this page. Even though Sal is the leader of the guild, one of the most powerful sorcerers in the haunted woods, and has a dark past, he hides it all and the rest of Neovia sees him only as the shy owner of an amazing theater.
IreneName: Irene Malice
State of being: Alive
Specializes in: Dark Magic and Hand-to-hand Combat
Irene is Sal's daughter, and will be the next guild leader once her father retires. When I originally made her character, she was just a part of the guild, but I have further developed the purple ogrin to be not just part of the prestigious team, but Sal's daughter. She is the head of the wardrobe department at the theater and hand-makes most of the beautiful costumes. I like her for bouncing her and Vyx's personalities off each other. I played with the idea of making her an actual pet, but I didn't want to fill the few spots I have with just a purple ogrin. Besides, she doesn't have much of a story, so writing her page would have been very difficult.
Irene is currently in training to be the next leader and to use her immense magical abilities wisely. She is highly intelligent but absentminded, and her sweet exterior covers the tough girl underneath. She might be small, but Irene can hold her own in a fight better then most guys. Irene is humble like her father, and she prefers the company of her few friends than that of the elite social circles that other girls her age and status are part of. Despite hating socialites, she loves dressing up like one. She is always dressed tastefully in lovely dresses and always brushes her long hair to a shine, even during work. She has a unique talent for being able to creep up and attack unsuspecting people in full-length dresses and high heels, even though she prefers her simpler dresses and boots to do active work. Irene and Vyx have been good friends for years, and she sees him as almst an older brother, despite the two having polar opposite views and personalities.
Hayden and the Vampire ClanName: Lord Hayden Bowen Taruth (Hayden)
State of being: Vampire
Age: 27 (Plus at least 500 vampire years)
Specializes in: Charming People
Hayden is a white draik who is the leader of a clan of aristocratic vampires which numbers around fifteen. The clan is very close knit, and Vyx, Qutrii, and Thaddeus are the newest and youngest additions. Hayden was part of the guild back when Q was leader, and he has remained a tie between the guild and vampires all these years. Unlike other vampires who live and hunt for victims in the woods, these socialites prefer to reside among the living in Neovia, and they get their food by hosting dinners and parties to attract possible victims. They find it much more enjoyable than traditional hunting. He employed Thaddeus and gave him a place to stay because he is rather fond of the young lupe, Thaddeus reminded him of himself when he was younger. Besides, Hayden's last head servant was... well, lets just say he was fired for good.
I have not done that much character development on Hayden and his clan, mainly due to the reason that they are minor characters only used for story development.
What is this?
A page without a character description?
What in Neopia is here on unlucky page thirteen???
As you can probably tell, I love to write, but not just about my characters. I have also written and roleplayed about famous Neopians, and this is my little corner for displaying those stories. Right now there is just the one, but more will come in the future! :D
Oh, and no sticky paws. If I find anyone has stolen my ideas, Scratch and Sal will make sure that the thief gets what he or she deserves. ;)
The Queen of Thieves
So this story has some background, like I said earlier, sometimes I RP famous neopians with my friends, and I RP Jazan and Nabile quite a bit. One time, I was thinking, did Nabile ever get bored in Qasala or did she miss thieving? Well, that's how this story came to be. :) I hope you like it.
