So, anyway, here is my incomplete list of characters. I have three more ideas in very rough development, all based around the setting, but I'll introduce you guys to who I have now.

Ashlynn Martinek
A V6 leftover
Parents are discredited Chattanooga lawyers. A long-winded, intelligent, altruistic Czech-American trivia master with an ambitious activist streak. Ashlynn can, for all her good intentions and friendly attitudes and self-professed ultra-tolerance, be arrogant and dismissive towards those she considers less ideologically selfless or less knowledgeable.
Basically other opinions are probably wrong. And hey, she values pluralism and debate, but still. Yeah, you're probably wrong. Even if it's a minor dispute. Especially if it's a minor dispute. God forgive you use a logical fallacy around her. She kinda thinks she's the master of rant comedy, but she isn't. She's not a bad person or arrogant at heart, not in the slightest. Just that she's always been very opionionated (her opinions changed pretty dramatically over the past couple of years though, from arch-conservative to progressive), and she needs to mature a bit. Which may happen. Or it may not.
[+] spoiler
Friends/positive:
- Hel Fury (Emprexx Plush)
- Janie Lyons (Somersault)
- Estela Cardoso (MaskedMountain)
- Joanne Coleman (Cicada Days) - same social circles and ideas, different styles
- Nia Karahalios (Fenris)
- Dante Valiero (Fenris) - views him as a joke. If she viewed him seriously, she’d hate him.
- Yuki Hayashibara (Ryuki) - positive interactions from chess club
- Sierra Cook (Lord of Awesome) - guarded but friendly
- Lucas Abernathy (LoA) - get on fairly okay
- Meilin Zhou (BlizzardeyeWonder) - no arguments, but some caution on Meilin’s part
Not-friends/negative:
- Max Rudolph (CrossbowPig) - debating adversaries
- Beryl Mahelona (Cicada Days) - Ashlynn finds her rather annoying, but Beryl likes her
- Ivy Langley (Fenris)
- Lori Martin (Ruggahissy)
Nick Ogilvie
Has a beard that's a fucking mess. But people still find him attractive because he's naturally pretty hot and well-built and has a rather nice Edinburgh accent. Wants to be an illusionist. NOT a magician. Don't call him a magician. Magic doesn't exist. Illusions do, though. And he loves them. Thinks they make him even sexier. Which is good, because he likes to sleep around. With any and all genders. Also thinks that his fondness for cigars makes him even hotter*.
Otherwise he's a neurotic bundle of issues. Basically has a history of being peer pressured or cajoled into doing things he doesn't want to do, things he feels guilty about, that kind of thing. Both big and small. Hyperaware of that now, but still fundamentally vulnerable to it. Very stubborn and sarcastic as a result, and has the occasional temper tantrum. Also has an off-colour sense of humour. Makes a lot of objectifying comments. Uncertain whether he really is into daddykink or just treats it as a meme.

*not really into them but he pretends he is. Kinda like Winston Churchill.
[+] spoiler
Friends and more:
- Beryl Malehona (Cicada) - girlfriend
- Tristan O’Hara (Sansa Saver) - boyfriend
- Gaelan Meloy (Brackie) (and the following five are from that big friend group that came about from the Gaelan-Ariana merger)
- Heather Klein (Dr Adjective)
- Lukas Nielson (jimmydalad) - lotsa flirting here too
- Blaise d’Aramitz (Emprexx Plush) - also friend, have slept with before
- Ariana Simpson (Sansa Saver)
- Joseph Quintero (Malloon)
- Keisha Higgins-Bell (Somersault)
- Dante Valiero (Fenris)
- Axel Fontaine (Fenris) - friends - have probably slept together before
- Zachary Beck (Ryuki) - helps him with prank videos
- Sierra Cook (Lord of Awesome) - past hookup
- Mellin Zhou (BlizzardeyeWonder) - have been a thing before, but amicable exes
- Altan Ochir (Masked Mountain) - unknown fan of his illusions
- Alton Gerow (MurderWeasel) - friends
- Lavender Ripley (MurderWeasel) - past hookup, still friendly
- Lucas Diaz (CBP)
Complex
- Phillip Olivares (MurderWeasel) - two different types of illusionist. Sometimes the rivalry’s friendly and full of banter, sometimes the philosophical differences are a bit too much
Not-so-friends:
- Max Rudolph (CBP) - constantly tries showing him up and undermining his tricks - Nick tends to be neutral towards it
- Violet Schmidt (CBP) - she dislikes Nick because he’s insufficiently respectful to her magical mumbo jumbo beliefs. She also disses the beard, and so is full of objectively wrong opinions
- Ivy Langley (Fenris) - Nick likes Gaelan. Like, they’re very good friends. Therefore he kinda can’t be friends with Ivy.
Bill Winlock
Unlike all my other characters, Bill's family has been in Chattanooga for generations, and they are pillars of the community - civil rights activists, environmental champions, active volunteers and local politicians. Basically a very accomplished family that did a lot with a tough hand. Bill was basically brought up knocking on doors and handing out leaflets and he was always kinda terrible at it, but fuck it, it was the least he could do, right?
And now he is basically a giant ball of anxiety and insecurity because he basically feels average as hell. Sure, he's a very friendly and chill guy, who is basically friends with everyone (mainly because he sucks at confrontation). Yeah, he's really good at, like, sociology and psychology, but those aren't real subjects, are they? And he's also really good at fighting games, but you can't do that for a living. So no, Bill has no marketable skills and no marketable talents and he's doomed to obscurity.
That's his thought process anyway. He keeps all of that shit bottled up and repressed around his family, and only really lets go around his friends. Elsewhere he shies away from conflict, lies habitually to downplay both his achievements and his failings, and has one of those really annoying Facebook feeds with lots of Buzzfeed shit linked to it. He also plays baseball, based on his father's insistence that he needs a sport, and is mediocre at it. Passably so, though.
Also I am giving him the same leg frame that I have because fuck it. So correction. Used to play baseball.
[+] spoiler
Friends/positive:
- Mercy Ames (backslash)
- Lucas Abernathy (LordOfAwesome)
- Ned Jackson (Ryuki)
- Yuki Hayashibira (Ryuki)
- Camilla Bell (BlizzardeyeWonder)
Camille Bellegarde
Algerian-French, her parents are tech gurus who moved to Chattanooga for work. She is a massive nerd who is basically going to spend her life writing and drawing depraved smut for internet commissions and she's not even gonna apologise for that. Sure, she only started when she was 18 (she believes in the letter of the law, even if she thinks fuck the spirit of it), but she's been working at it for a few months now and has a pretty good following.
She is also big into helping out the drama people with technical stuff. Also a very big people-watcher. Like, enjoys sitting in cafes and watching people tick with minimal intervention. It's good for her writing. That's the excuse she has for her rabid reality TV consumption too.
[+] spoiler
Friends:
- Lucas Abernathy (LordofAwesome) - they are the cutest couple in V7, I will accept no dissenting opinion
- Yuki Hayashibara (Ryuki) - fellow writers
- Ned Jackson (Ryuki) - fellow nerds
- Myles Roux (backslash) - shared interests in reality TV and gossip
- Camilla Bell (BlizzardeyeWonder) - similar names, so Camille seeks out her company just for the fun of it
- Osiris Wesley (MaskedMountain)
Club Memberships

Of course Blaise and Nick have slept together. Just of course. Look at Blaise. Look at Nick. Now back to Blaise. Now back to Nick. Vain-ass illusionists with nice accents and lots and lots of issues that make them dismissive of others. They occasionally refer to him as Daddy and pretend it just slipped out when they're feeling like stirring the pot. The more I think about it the more I realize they may actually be a little stuck on him but they'll never, ever own up to it.

Hel and Ashlynn seem like they'd at least be colleagues? I imagine they get along decently since their ideologies tend to align, but Hel often tries to get her to reign it in a little and be more engaging with other viewpoints as a way to help win people over rather than alienate them, though I also imagine that's not terribly successful.

It was difficult to nail down exactly when the anger started. Remembering a time when it wasn't there, coiled up and waiting to strike or alive and thrashing, was growing more and more challenging. It'd been with her for so long that it no longer felt like an intruder in her mind. It felt like a part of her.

Max looks down on Ashlynn hard. He probably heard about her parents being discredited through his mother, and as such sees her efforts at debate as some form of reflection of that. Probably runs the fallacy-fallacy as an argument against her most of the time, if they get in spats, and they probably do. He simply doesn't accept the fact that she could be right, just as she barely ever accepts that she's ever wrong. This isn't to say, about Max, that he thinks that he is always right: it is just this person in particular that he cannot accept as ever having a point. As her opinions changed from conservative to progressive, he probably looks down on her for simply going with whatever is in vogue, and probably brings that up in arguments or when asked by others about his thoughts on her - even if she isn't even involved in the discussion apart from a namedrop. Probably gets teased about this - the word hatecrush is one I see used by others. Lucas probably strays away from her, and Violet probably does as well, at first responding well to her tolerance and then fading away once they realize that maybe she isn't quite what she professes to be.

Violet doesn't call Nick an illusionist. She calls him a phony. Magic exists. Illusions are mean-spirited. More than likely one of the few people, if not the only person, she actively dislikes. Stays away from him, and thinks his beard is disgusting. Similarly, Max thinks that his illusions are just a simple party trick, and would be the kind of person to look into how they work online and then debase him in social situations. For fun. Lucas thinks he's a pretty swell guy, though, and is sympathetic to his past.

Okay yeah Blaise and Nick have slept together. Nick views them as a friend who was v fun to sleep with but does not reciprocate any lingering attractions. He's moved on to more complex and more dramatic things now.

And yes Ashlynn will be the friend that Hel kinda wishes at times wasn't on her side of the argument, because yeah Ashlynn will not like being held back.

That all sounds good with Ashlynn. Especially with Max. Let the hatecrush commence. Ashlynn would never admit it though.

Nick thinks Violet is a stupid poopy butthole, but only because she thinks he is. If she just stopped to accept that, hey, she can believe in her mumbo jumbo and Nick can keep on having his fun, that there's no contradiction there, they could be friends. But nope. She gotta be a bitch. Nick isn't bothered at all by Max's attempts to embarass him. Nick is hard to embarass. Nick thinks Lucas is cool, though, yeah.
