        Okay, so I’m introducing my first character. Her name is Candi Marie Stethison, and she’s 23. She has blond hair (with a few “modern” darker streaks), and hazel eyes. When she was little, she had an injury to her right eye that caused it to go almost blind, she can see light through it though. She is 5′ 8” and has a thicker build. Three years ago she also had a left knee injury, so she wears a brace.

        Her personality is ESFJ/Consul…she’s competitive on the field, and warmhearted and relatable every other time. She likes people, and she’s intelligent, and is very good at planning and then executing her plans. Where she trains they call her “Sniper” because she’s a patient competitor…waiting for the other person to make a mistake, and then beating them. She loves brain competition as much, or more, than the physical stuff.

        Pictures I drew of her:

                    MY PLANET

                    Name: Rithagua

                    So, the whole planet is one big land mass. There is no water on the surface of the planet at all. How do the inhabitants survive? The core of the planet is not hot material like earth. It is composed of water :). The civilizations over time have developed unique ways of acquiring the water for use by all, including irrigation, drinking, etc.

                    Because the whole planet is all one land mass, there are some major struggles over dividing country barriers. It’s not uncommon for fighting to break out.


                    @joelle-stone

                    Joelle Stone’s character, Vika, is from another country on my planet of Rithagua. But she’s a spy in my country, Sinoraus, so everyone thinks she’s from the country of Sinoraus.

                    MY CHARACTERS’ COUNTRY:

                    Both Rikiar Thidrek and Aleyda Wilgefortis live in the same country.

                    Name of Country: Sinoraus

                    Country is VERY military oriented. Both Rikiar and Aleyda are part of a warrior camp that pretty much is their life.

                    The government of the country Sinoraus is very corrupt. Somehow they have some sort of connection with one of the game builders (not a Judge, actual builder/planner) (Neromiro Drake), who also is corrupt. That game builder has agreed to pay Sinoraus’ government “big” money for game contestants, since in Sonoraus, the Cullings are not a highly respected thing. The game leaders really want Sinoraus’ contestants since Sinoraus is so military focused and they are good fighters. All this leads to the warrior camp in which Rikiar and Aleyda attend.

                      The Cullings’ Planet:

                      The space ship on which the Cullings event is held “orbits” (it doesn’t tho, it should stay still) the planet Ureka2.

                      Ureka2 is a high class planet where the inhabitants indulge themselves in their wealth and the lavishness of the planet. Norbis, the planet’s most populated, wealthy country is home to the development of the Cullings and a highly prestigious government. Unknown to most, Neromiro Drake is a corrupt man who influences many government officials and their decisions. Neromiro Drake’s drive to obtain more power has led him to Ureka2 and the Cullings, something he now desperately wants.

                      The Cullings’ Ship:

                      Name for the Ship: Resilience

                      Orbits Ureka2

                      The Arena is a massive, highly technological dome. The Arena transforms into any known terrain, weather, climate, etc.

                      Everything is controlled from the Arena’s headquarters, located on Ureka2

                      • Desert
                      • Rainforest
                      • Arctic
                      • Grasslands/Prairie
                      • Mountains
                      • Artificial one  — with traps. The classic “arrows shooting out of walls” “spiky walls closing in on you” “axes swinging from ceiling” “make a wrong step, push the wrong button, fall to your death” thing.

                      Everything is controlled from the Arena’s headquarters, located on Ureka2

                      Rooms that will definitely need to be there:

                      • The Arena (on the ship)
                      • Living Quarters (on the ship)
                      • Training Courses (on the ship)
                      • Amphitheater (on Ureka2)
                        We need this for  1. Spectators, watching the Cullings on big screens, 2. Showing the contestants, 3. Showing the winners, etc.)
                      • Dining (on the ship)
                      • Headquarters (on Ureka2)

                        Here’s a sketch of The Resilience. I was thinking that we could have the amphitheater/arena like a bubble inside of the ship, so that’s what this shows.

                          The kids compete for every branch of the Cullings. That way, the Judges can see what they excel at, and we don’t have two thirds of the characters in the military division with the others scattered throughout the rest.

                          The winners  train to become the leaders, instead of becoming the actual leaders. Maybe a mentor/apprentice thing?

                          The Branches:

                          -military

                          -science

                          -technology

                          -diplomats

                          -judicial branch

                          -legislative branch

                            BACKSTORY OF ANDOR

                            Andor was born on the planet of Mortar, to a wealthy family much renowned in that region for their kindness and generosity. He grew up among servants and lush gardens and fancy rooms. He grew up with his every need met on the double, and he had dozens of friends. He had everything a boy could wish for — and more. His parents raised him to be kind, to be loving, and to help others less fortunate in all the ways he could. Young Andor would often stop on a walk with his mother to give some of his own pocket money to a blind beggar.

                            But when he was eleven-years old, his parents were brutally murdered before his very eyes. A man with a mask attacked his father and slit his throat with a primitive knife. And then his pregnant mother was stabbed to death while he watched in silent horror. But Andor screamed as the murderer approached him; then sirens wailed — the police had been alerted, but the masked-man escaped. He had probably been hired by a gang to do away with the do-goodies; but hadn’t been able to finish his job.

                            Andor, at eleven years of age, became the owner of a large estate and an enormous inheritance. His parents had left everything to him. His nanny cared for him until he turned fifteen, and by then he was a fine young gentleman.

                            He attended college at only fifteen, and there met Mary-Lain. When he graduated, he waited until he was old enough, and married her. His father’s business was flourishing under his guidance, and he was earning almost twice as much money. He had a young son, who he named Drake. He loved that boy with all his heart.

                            And then, Mary-Lain and Drake died in a staged car-accident meant to assassinate a governor.

                            You could say Andor was heart broken.

                            But he went mad.

                            All through his career, he had been tasting more and more power — and it was starting to grow on him. Now, he had lost his love and his baby. He needed solace. He needed might. He needed to be in control.

                            And so, Andor quietly and stealthy began his work. He bought small businesses, and made them boom. Then he bought bigger and bigger facilities until he owned the jobs of half the population of Mortar. And then, he “bought” himself a seat in the senate. And then another of higher power, and another.

                            Soon, he was the richest president the galaxy had ever seen.

                            But it was not enough.

                            He had felt pain, pain beyond belief. He had been spared, but he wanted — needed — others to feel his pain. He would not stoop low to a measly gang system. He would kill the gang who killed his family, and then he would get himself the world. The galaxy. The planets of the entire star-system. He would make them suffer.

                            He would make all feel his sorrow and his anger, his pain and his suffering.

                            Andor Kiro became Neromiro Drake.

                              The leaders of the Cullings are called the Judges. There are three, and they each get to grant one pardon from elimination to a player of their choice.

                                THE CULLINGS

                                A comprehensive guide

                                One player is selected from each country and sent to the Arena, a large space station that orbits a different planet each game. As it has been for past centuries, the Resilience will host the Cullings this election.

                                Once the players arrive they are settled in the dorms of the host ship. After a tour of the ship, and a day to prepare and practice on the Resilience’s state of the art training course, the players are entered into the first game. The games rotate order each election, and this time around they happen to fall in this sequence: The Obstacles Course, Seeker, the Mechanical Battle, Tripwire, Touch, the Race, Infection (NEW), the Living battle, Electroball, the Labyrinth, and The Final Battle

                                The first game eight players are eliminated. The second game six are. The next four, four again, then two, and then one player is subtracted until only eight remain. The Supreme Judges each have the power to grant one player of their choice a single pardon from elimination.

                                The eight players are assigned by the Judges to a branch of our government they see fit. The players are then trained by the previous leader of that branch, and when the master sees fit the winner becomes the new leader.

                                "The best is yet to come."

                                  Aleena Quartez is a woman with keen perception and a strict, no-nonsense way about her. These qualities made her an excellent contestant for Judge. Of course, she won.

                                  Aleena is from the planet of Contar, a mostly mountainous winterland with a few cold deserts and warmer plains scattered here and there. (Since I’m a terrible world-builder and I don’t really like it, that’s all I’m going to say.)

                                  With jet black hair and dark skin, Aleena stood out from her fellow Contarians, with their curly auburn hair and fair skin. Her eyes, a dark green, were like most Contarians, but stand out shockingly against her skin and hair.

                                  Aleena has always been proud of her skill as a healer. Although she is tall and stern-looking, she has a soft heart and gentle tongue. She values good sportsmanship and honesty above all else, but is a fair Judge.

                                  Maxwort Jargaun, age 48

                                  He is very political and professional in almost all of his views, and is strictly by the book with no exceptions whatsoever. Having grown up in a high class and a modern, civilized country he is very used to being obeyed and respected.

                                  He has pale, sallow skin and brown, graying hair. His eyes are a dull shade of blue. His nearly always is found in a dark grey or black suit, and light grey if he is feeling cocky, which he rarely does. He often keeps a silver cane at his side, a parting gift from his older brother, the only piece he owns that holds some form of sentiment.

                                  With his cool and neutral demeanor he makes few friends and often estranges his co-workers from himself. The role of Judge appealed to him as a way to use his knowledge of (and strict adherence to) justice and fairness to influence the galaxy.
