* I was not forced to make an application! *
This was a previous application for an Darigan Aisha from a few years ago. It's a bit outdated, but I would still like to use this character for one again eventually! I left it up for me to reuse the character one day.
I used the name Alex in place of a name for now.
Again, this is relatively outdated! Please excuse any strange coding and/or outdated writing, hehe! It's almost two years old now I think. I would love to update it, but because of time constraints, it will have to stay outdated a bit until I finally get a pet that fits the character.
Short Story Example
Chapter I: Spark
I can't believe you did that! Really! Do you think I don't worry enough?
I sighed loudly. Of course my mother was upset over something I did. When was she not? She was obsessive with turning every microscopic mistake I make into a huge deal. It wasn't my fault that I was problem-prone.
Are you even listening to me? Her voice rose up a pitch.
No. Of course I am, Mom, I said, rolling my eyes. She's always worrying about me, even when I'm sleeping. I'm wondering whether or not the day will come when she no longer cares.
Alex, my mother said coolly, her voice as smooth as nails on a chalkboard. I winced. Her voice got like this only when I was in serious trouble. I've told you time and time again about how serious this is. It's not some cool toy. You can be kxlled if you use it wrongly.
You think I'm not mature enough to handle this? I demanded, annoyed, not for the first time, that she brought up the 'You can be kxlled!' speech again.
She sighed, obviously tired of trying to convince me that this was dangerous. No, you are mature enough. You just remember what happened to Yaash when he abused it.
Of course I remember what happened to Yaash, I snapped at my mother, though I quietly thanked the Lectrics that she gave in so easily. Maybe she was realizing that she won't win arguments anymore. I was his friend.
Then you'll be careful?
Yes, mom, I replied dutifully, silently breaking the promise.
She gave a brusque nod through narrowed eyes, obviously noticing my fake promise. She turned away quickly, muttering as she padded to the reading room.
Glad to be away from my mother's pointless (and annoying) worries, I let myself relax. I noticed a big purple feather floating to the ground at such a slow pace it was as if gravity didn't exist. I realized that I must look like a savage, all ruffled up the way I was. No wonder she brought that up, I thought. Next time I'll fix myself up before coming home.
While I sat there, silently cleaning my scales, I thought about what all had happened in the past few weeks: the terrifying, yet exciting, changes I've been through. I finally got my full use of my Spark powers, the normal Spark ability to bend electricity, along with the rare extra ability to breath fire.
I grinned to myself, knowing I was the only Spark in the Kaa Clan with an extra ability. Our leader Prima, the Blue Spark of the Kaa Clan, had pratically leapt for joy when she realized one of her Sparks had an extra ability. We are almost even with the Sibi Clan now, except Zane still has both extra abilities. Prima wouldn't risk a war unless she was sure we could win. Maybe not even then because without any Red Sparks, the Clans could be terminated. Times are tough without the Red Sparks. I can remember the time I fractured my wing and was out for two weeks. If the Red Sparks hadn't died off, it would have been fixed in a day.
Zane is the Blue Spark of the Sibi Clan, and he is also the only Spark known to have been born with the extra two abilities - breathing fire and bending wind along with bending electricity. How unfair. It's the strongest Clan only because of him. Hopefully we can keep the tensions low or we may have trouble. Big trouble, I think gloomily. I wasn't afraid of Zane, but no one sane would dare fight his Clan with no Red Sparks to heal any wounded Sparks or Sparkees.
My mother was born a Sparkee, an average Clan member with green feathers and fur. She doesn't understand the level of pride you feel when you've successfully guarded the borders, fought off an intruding wanderer, or even had an excellent day in training. Of course she worries. All the Sparkees are like that. No wonder they aren't the warriors, they're the worriers, I joked to myself, knowing my mother would throw me off the mountain if she knew I thought that. She says everyone in the Clan is an equal. Yeah, right.
My favourite part of Neopets - stories! Coming up with ideas is what I enjoy the most here and, of course, Alex would get his own personal story to shine in! Prepare yourself for the giant wall of text I am about to throw at you.
Alex is a Purple Spark of the Kaa Clan. There are three types of Sparks - Blue, Red, and Purple. The Blue Spark is the leader, which there is only one of. Prima is the Blue Spark of the Kaa Clan. The Red Sparks are the healers; there hasn't been a Red Spark born in centuries, which worries the Blue Spark and the eldest Purple Sparks. The Purple Sparks are the warriors of them all. They fight all the wars, help the Sparkees (the Clan members who are not Blue, Red, or Purple Sparks; they are green), and have certain abilities to help them win the wars over other Clans.
Sparks are reptilian cat-like creatures, with long antennae stretching far above their heads. They have scales and tufts of fur that are softer than the softest down. All Sparks have the ability to bend electricity. The colour of it depends on the type of Spark the creature is. Some other Sparks have extra abilities, such as bending wind and breathing fire. Alex has the extra ability to breath fire.
If you are a Spark, you can be kxlled just by using your powers. Bending electricity takes an awful amount of practice and if a Spark tries to use too much power before he or she is ready, they will be kxlled. The electricity they can bend has just a bit more voltage and heat than a typical lightning strike; bending electricity stops the heart and melts the brain if used incorrectly.
When Alex was born, his mother, Sybi, was worried he would become a powerful Spark since his father was the Blue Spark of the Clan. Alex was actually born just as a Purple Spark, which are the most common of all the Sparks. Sybi was grateful for Alex being a Purple Spark, although they can be the most dangerous. There hasn't been a war between Clans in over seven centuries, as most of the Clans have dwindled to a small population. None of them want to risk the lives of their Sparks or Sparkees
Unfortunately, a huge fight does break out between the two strongest Clans left - The Kaa Clan and the Sibi Clan. The Sibis are tired of how rare Spark births have been, so they are trying to take over the other Clans' Sparks. The Blue Spark of the Sibi Clan, Zane, is the most powerful of all Sparks. He has all three abilities available to Sparks - bending electricity and wind, and the ability to breath fire. Zane is the only Spark known of to be born with all three abilities.
Alex's story is actually a tragedy. At the end of the story, Alex is kxlled by Zane in the battle between the Kaa and Sibi Clans.
While you gape at the screen and wonder what kind of person kxlls the main character off, I'll tell you why I decided on this course of an end. Although I love stories where the protagonist overcomes the major conflict, I also think those are overused. There are very few stories that have these terrible endings where the protagonist is actually kxlled off. Romeo and Juliet, an amazing play, was one of these few stories where both of the main characters die. Though it was heart-breaking, this is what made Romeo and Juliet a memorable love-story. I think that having a story where the protagonist, Alex, is kxlled makes for a more dramatic resolution than the typical happy-endings.
This image doesn't really show Alex's fierceness...
but isn't it adorable?!
About Me & Plans
My name is Phroto, and I'm currently an accounting student attending a university. I have been playing Neopets for years, and it has always been a part of my life. Even though I am quite busy now, I always make a little time for Neopets and always will. :) I'm a bit too addicted to this place hehe!
My accounts are warriorsrock965 (main), ixikougralover, punchbuggieshilo, graystripelover, and wariorsluver. If somehow I'm chosen to adopt Alex, he'd go to my side ixikougralover.
On Neopets, I love to customize my pets (I am an NC addict!), collect avatars (325!), collect Aisha items in my gallery (80% complete!), write stories, and chat with friends. That's practically all that I do! My goals page is here.
I run an Aisha Directory called All Things Aisha and have been running it since September 2013. I wanted to have a site where I could look up people's Aishas, their characters, and their customizations--all in one convenient place! So my directory was born.
I also have an Aisha Gallery called All Things Aisha! as well. I collect all my Aisha items in here, and I hope one day to get it to 90% completion (currently at 78%). I would love 100%, but some Aisha items are just too rare and/or expensive that I would be incredibly happy with 90% completion!
As said before, I also love customization. I can promise that Alex would have a spectacular customization, as the rest of my pets do!
I'm also obsessed with getting all my pets a petpet and petpetpet! All of my pets have their matching petpet and petpetpet, so Alex would get one as well.
I do write stories for the majority of my pets (see the following section for all my pets' characters). If I don't write stories on their petpages themselves, I write some to the Neopian Times! I have been in the Times eighteen times so far. I want to get in more, but I haven't really had time to write anything new specifically geared towards the Times in quite a while because of school. However, I do still enjoy writing, and it has always been a part of what makes Neopets fun for me.

Off Neopets, I'm currently attending a university, majoring in accounting. It's been keeping me busy, but I always have time to check up on Neopets. :)
I have a few different hobbies. My favorite is definitely reading. I absolutely love reading and stories and getting lost in different worlds. I'm always looking for new books to read and read a wide variety of books, though my favorite genres are science-fiction, fantasy, contemporary, young adult, and romance. Reading is my favorite hobby, and I like to spend more time living in fictional worlds than the real world.
I also love to watch TV shows. My favorite shows are Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, House M.D., Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, Psych, The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Into the Badlands.
I don't want to bore you with any more random details, so I'll continue to the most important section next: my current pets!
this section here is one of the outdated sections. Until then, please check out my page here that lists all my pets and their characters.
These are my 19 pets. Click here to see my page dedicated to all my pets! I really hope that you'll take a look at all of them and their lookups and petpages because this is what you could expect a future pet to have.
All of my pets have some sort of character. Not all of them have stories, however. Some of my pets -are named after my real life pets, and they don't have a story because of it. Others, like Kitteny and ThunderClan, are just customization pets--they are my dress up pets! That does not mean that I love them any less than my pets that have fully-fleshed stories. I love them all equally, and now I will explain all of them to you!
Bamroso was traded for on March 8th, 2015. I traded my UC Darigan Aisha for him (yes, I know! I loved Bamroso more than an UC Darigan Aisha, so I was willing to part with mine to get him). Bamroso is a botanist. The year is 2162 on Planet Jei, and due to environmental damage and climate change, the only living beings left live in domes. A group of scientists, including Bamroso, work for the government to try and recreate the plant and animal that went extinct during that time, in hopes to repair their planet. However, Bamroso finds a journal from the lead scientist, Caledora, and finds out that the planet's government is planning on evacuating the few wealthy and prominent domes to Earth, leaving the rest to fend for themselves. It's up to him to decide whether or not to tell everyone about this plan, or keep it to himself and flee as planned.
Caledora was traded for on September 13, 2015! I had another UC Desert Aisha, but I could not resist trading for Callie here. I adore her name so much. The overall trading chain consisted of: Warriors RN - WN ~1300 HSD Draik - 4L RW w/ FFQ custom - DN UC Grey Wocky - WN UC Grey Uni - D/BN UC Grey Aisha - WN UC Grey Grarrl - BN UC Grey Peophin - DN UC Darigan Kougra - VWN UC Darigan Acara - Caledora! I originally wanted an UC Darigan Aisha, but I am so happy I was able to trade for Callie.
I was lucky enough to adopt Cha on May 2nd, 2015. Cha is a member of the Zaishan, which is a group of thieves working together to steal from other thieves. However, the Zaishans have a secret: they implant a chip into every member's mind. If a member is ever caught, the chip erases any and all memories of the Zaishan. Cha used to believe in this, knowing it kept the Zaishans safe for the past two years, but she learns the biggest secret of all: the chips can be used to control the members at any time. Already having the chip in her brain, Cha tries to find a way to remove her chip and save her friends from being harmed from whatever Zaash's end goal is.
Kitteny! Can you believe I found this cutie in the pound as a basic pet?! The name is just too adorable! I was looking for cat-related names to host my Aisha Directory, and ta-da! I found Kitteny in the pound and had to adopt her. After a few months, I was finally able to paint her Plushie. She is the host of my Aisha Directory, All Things Aisha
! She doesn't have a "character" per se because of this. I just love to customize her and love her name!
Outer was traded for on December 1st, 2015. I traded my 4L RW (that I had traded my DN UC Desert Aisha for) for her. I fell in love with her name, as it just reminded me of outer space! I am slightly obsessed with astronomy in real life (wish I was good at science so I could have majored in it!), so I love her lots. She's the newest addition to my family.
Firebend was traded for on June 29th, 2015! Fortunately enough, Firebend's old owner liked my offer (4L Darigan Aisha)! I absolutely love Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Those two cartoons are my favorites! They're so emotional, even though they were just cartoons. I was very happy to finally have an Avatar-themed pet. Iroh and Zuko were also my favorite characters, and as they are both Firebenders, so Firebend is awesome to have.
ShadowClan! One of my first adopted pets. She was the first pet I ever adopted from someone, in May of 2010. Her name is a real Clan name in the Warriors
series by Erin Hunter, and when I saw her UFA I had to apply! So I did, and Taschi amazingly picked me. I was so happy, and Shadow has been with me ever since. She also has a full story and character, where she's a light spirit, so please feel free to take a look (you might notice that Shadow's and Alex's stories share similarities--they both have to do with "light" and so I made them similar banners).
BloodClan! My spooky little Aisha. BloodClan is also a real Clan name in the Warriors
series (you will detect a name-theme here soon hehe!). I traded for him a long time ago too. He has a story in motion where he used to be a blind normal individual until he was transformed into a hideous monster by spirits when he begged to be able to see. With help from a local townsperson, he tries to get himself back to his normal blind self. Check out his lookup and petpage for more details!
SkyClan was my second Warriors pet. She's another real Warriors Clan name, and I traded for her a long while ago, around the time I got ShadowClan. I zapped her Alien myself after many, many Aisha morphing potions. She is the Bringer of Storms--she makes and creates storms that destroys people's houses and villages because of her grief. I haven't gotten around to expanding her story yet, but basically she's just a really sad storm-maker who finally realizes the destruction she has released upon the world.
A pirate's life for me!
CaptainJackSparrow! Gosh, who doesn't love Pirates of the Carribbean?! I love those movies. I was supposed to trade a Krawk custom for Captain Jack (a while ago, when Krawk Morphing Potions were worth around 1 mil), but the user decided to let me adopt him instead! I morphed him into the awesome Aisha he is today soon after. He has a story written about him that made it into the Times! It's on his petpage or here
in the Times.
ThunderClan is another Warriors name. I traded for her when I missed her name in the purge. ThunderClan is probably my favorite Clan in the series--probably because it's the main Clan in the series too. She's my favorite pet to customize because Desert Aisha base colors are so neutral. She doesn't have a character idea or anything and instead her petpage hosts my closet page. She is my customization kitty!
RiverClan is yet another Warriors Clan. When I missed River in the purge too, I mailed to owner asking if they would like to trade. They instead asked me if I just wanted to adopt, since they noticed how many of the Clan names I already had! I was incredibly thankful, and so River came to stay with me. I plan on painting her Water whenever Water Aishas are released. I actually already have a Water Paint Brush in my gallery all ready for her! She also doesn't have a character yet, but it will definitely be something with water.
WindClan is another Warriors Clan, and I also missed WindClan in the second purge. I mailed Wind's owner, and they asked me if I wanted to adopt as well! I was so happy because WindClan completed my Warriors name collection. I own all of the Clan names that have ever been named in the Warriors series, and that was something I'd always wanted to do since I adopted ShadowClan. My Clan names are probably my favorite names here on this site. Wind doesn't have a character yet, though it is something with the Wind--very unique, right?!
StarClan is another Clan name. I created StarClan myself, as I was actually able to catch her in the purge. I painted her Eventide a while later, since I figure that color matches her the best. Star is quite obsessed with, well, the stars! She believes that stars are our ancestors; when a person dies, you can see them as a new star. Star also hosts my goal page
, so her petpage doesn't have her story on it yet.
Stronghammer is an Eragon (Inheritance Cycle) real name (yes, a different book series!). Roran Stronghammer was one of my favorite characters in the series. I saw him UFT on the PC a long time ago, but the user wasn't looking for creatable pets, so I was disappointed since I had nothing to offer. However, my friend had a RW that she didn't want anymore, so she offered her to Stronghammer's owner and he accepted! Then Stronghammer became my own, and I'm thankful to my friend for doing that. Stronghammer has a full story and character on his lookup and petpage--he's an alien sent to inspect the Earth, which is on a downhill spiral from pollution. Check out his petpage for more!
Ta-da! There they all are. :)
My pets that have full characters are: ShadowClan, BloodClan, CaptainJackSparrow, Stronghammer, Yellowfang, and SkyClan. The rest of my pets have character blurbs on their lookups and possibly a started petpage or host a petpage of mine for something else, but they do not have a petpage story yet like my others. The only pets that will never have characters are Kitteny. This is because Kitteny is my All Things Aisha directory holder. :)
I hope that you enjoyed this application and the character I have in mind for Alex! I tried to make it as short as possible, while still showing how much I would love the chance at trading for one of them.
Thank you very much for the opportunity to apply for Alex, and I wish you the very best of luck adopting out! Whatever your decision, I will support it. ~Phroto
