Amidst the rubble of a war not long past, the stars seek to raise a new generation. Blessed with celestial powers that have begun to make their reappearance, the Gifted are individuals whose shoulders the future of the city rests on. Will you overthrow the dysfunctional government or work to keep it in power? Or will you undermine the whole game and play to your own advantage? No matter your motives, Hyperion is yours to shape.
Castle needs members! More importantly, Castle needs its high-ranking positions filled. (Don't know what Castle is? Click here.)
So, if you'd like a high-ranking position within the group but aren't quite sure how to tie a character to the leader, I've got these premade kids for you to consider! Feel free to tweak as much or as little of them as you'd like. I'm also totally fine with new players snapping them up as well! If you need more details, feel free to drop this account a PM or talk to Graves in the cbox.
If all these kids end up taken, I'll probably update with more, so feel free to check back if none of these suit your fancy!
I see my red door and must have it painted black

This girl is the Associate of Castle - and she's the black to Altair's red. Where he is passionate, she is ruthless. Where he is welcoming, she is suspicious. She's the one making money, more interested in power and control: this isn't a charity, no matter how many orphans Altair ushers in, and she makes sure everyone earns their keep. She's high-class, high-power, and she's threatened to crush Altair's balls beneath her heel more than once when he's pissing her off with his debonair bullshit.
Compared to the organization's leader, she sees the powers wielded by Gifted as similar to regular talents: some people have a knack for writing, some people have a knack for slinging fireballs. She utilizes regular humans as well as Gifted and treats them mostly the same; she only cares about herself, and to some degree, the organization.
How Altair managed to tempt her to a life of crime is open for discussion, but the popular theory is that she was a recovering addict who needed a psych willing to withstand a woman who regularly threatens violence. Regardless of their partnership's origin, what is known is that she balances Altair, keeping Castle profitable and their members in control.
I'm fearless now, but it cost my soul

This kid is an Admin of Castle, and he's damn good at his job. He's also obnoxious, troublesome to deal with, and people say Altair only keeps him around because he's a pretty face - and we all know Altair is a sucker for pretty faces. Whatever the truth is, this kid joined specifically for profits and power. It's a dog-eat-dog world and he's got a taste for teeth and eyes.
He can be surprisingly petty - the type who remembers a long-held grudge over something as simple as cutting in line. He's got a good sense of humor, though, and people go gaga over his smile. He milks his baby face for all it's worth and then some.
As for his connection to Altair and Castle: I could see him being a street rat Altair picked up, the sort of kid who was left in dire straits following the old war, living on scraps and squatting in abandoned buildings. What probably began as a physical relationship (it isn't prostitution when it's bartering, right?) likely transformed quickly into one of mutual respect. Whether they kept fucking or not is up to you, but any talk of their sex life was pretty quickly squashed by this kid. Remember, he's petty, and anyone running their mouth and saying he slept his way to the top would probably meet a nasty accident fast. Altair looks the other way, because that's what this kid is good at - accidents, coincidences, stuff that can't be tracked back to him.
I know you wanna touch, but it ain't for free

Every castle has a princess, and that's this girl. She just so happens to also be an Admin. She's a surprising softy, rarely the type to engage in the thick of battle - no, she's the one who socializes, attending extravagant galas one night and visiting a bustling flea market the next morning. People love her tinkling laugh and believe she loves them in kind. The truth is slightly more complicated.
Like Altair, she believes that Gifted are naturally superior to regular humans; to her, humans are worse than pool scum, but she recognizes that regular people currently rule her world. To counteract this, she regularly swindles people out of their money, talking a big game and then disappearing when the money has been transferred. Despite her femininity, she actually has quite a skill for hacking; machines talk to her as easily as waves talk to the moon.
This princess actually found Altair, tracing him through a dozen message boards and suspicious twitter accounts, arriving at his door one morning before he went to work and offering her skills in exchange for Castle swallowing the government. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, he was quick to enlist her help, and she has been a part of Castle ever since.
