    @beth20 Thanks for tagging me! Also, you probably need to add more background to Ashton and Eldin. Where did they come from? Do they have parents? How did they get captured?

    @zee, I really like it! The jumpsuit is just how I thought it should be! It’s ok that you couldn’t fit the number, it wasn’t really necessary. Thanks so much for drawing her for me! 🙂

    @zee, If you want another character to do I have one, Ruby Trasken if you are interested. She is about 5′ 6″ with short black hair. She wears a futuristic black jumpsuit that has the number W-77302 on it. You don’t have to draw her if you don’t want, but I thought you might like to draw her. If you are wondering why her name is pretty much the same as Claire H’s, it’s because we are doing the same writing prompt.

    @beth20, I really liked it, and I agree with Gracie, but I also think that it is kind of hard to keep track of all the charachters.

    @the-inkspiller he is more outwardly nervous at times when he sees things that might suggest they have found him. For example, he gets very frightened when a few papers get moved from their places during the night. He is the sort of person to try to laugh it off to others but it is obvious that he is scared. He always had his battered silver pocket watch with him from India. Other than that I can’t think of any more props besides the SoulStone which is a spherical amethyst that pulses.

    @the-inkspiller, He is an older man, living in a manor in the country in NY. He spent some time in Africa, where his wife died, and after that he went to India, where he stayed a number of years. While he was there he went undercover is a Voodoo cult to recover the gem that held his wife’s soul. Ted Scott is his son, but Ted doesn’t know this when Cyril hires him purposefully as his private secretary. Shortly after Ted is employed, Cyril is killed by a SoulSeeker, and while he is dying he tells his son the truth. Cyril wears an old suit around the manor, even though he rarely sees anyone besides the manor staff. He is extremely nervous that his past will catch up to him and that the that the Voodooists sent out will find him.

    @the-inkspiller, here is some more description for my characters: Theodore Scott, the 22 year old private secretary; He is a tall, thin man with light brown hair. His face is thicker than you would think it would be because he is fairly skinny. He has no facial hair. Cyril Drake/Scott; here is an excerpt from my short story: “A man of medium build immediately opened the door. He had dark hair that had streaks of grey in it. He was of moderate height but nothing to boast about. His waist line was a little portly, and it was obvious that Cyril Drake was not on the young side of life.” He has little or no facial hair. Then I have a SoulSeeker, which is a humanoid, not a human. They have pulsing purple eyes, scars in intracate patterns on their foreheads, and small horns on either side of their chin, only about half and inch long.

    @the-inkspiller, I have 3 different characters you can choose from, I have a 22 year old secretary, a 55 year old man and a creature that resembles a human with a few differences. You can take your pick of any.
    I take it you like turtles? So do I!
