Thought I'd start us off...
Character Name: Mary Fingal

Genre: Fantasy

Describe the Character Physically in Your Own Words: She was of ethereal beauty - the kind that one read of in books and summoned up while thinking of the glowing angels of Heavon in prayers. Even Spalding, a student of magic and science, thought first of his own passion for her (his rounding eyes, his licked-lips) before taking in the shape of her chin, the structure of her bones, and the other little neccesseties he would need for his experiment.

One Line Description of Character: A boy-loving teenage farm-girl from a poor background, thrown into a dark world of fantasy when a magician attempts to change her biology.

Tell Us About the Character: She's the eldest daughter of a very poor family in a remote farm on the hills. A student of the magical arts stumbles across the family and offers to take her on as an assistant to him...while secretly planning to use his knowledge to turn her into a fairie and therby win his place as the greatest magician of all time. She accepts in order to feed her family and because she's attracted to this man. She comes from real poverty - and although her beauty is exceptional, she sees little value in it. Her hopes and dreams are small - all she wants is marriage and children and to be everything her mother was without any of the misery and hard-work of her mother.

What's a story only a brother or sister would know about her?: The time she walked her brother and sisters eight miles to the nearest village to buy tools for her father, and was so busy talking to the trainee-blacksmith she forgot the tools and walked them all the way home with the money still jangling in her pocket.

All I can think of is the line from Jurrasic Park about the frogs...

Why do I get the feeling that she'll end up saving the kingdom and she's actually the one with the magic? o.O

Here's hoping this is right ;)

Character Name: Emmaline 'Mel' ______

Genre: drama/romance <-- I think I don't understand what actually goes here

Describe the Character Physically in Your Own Words: About 5'8, average build, stronger than she looks; hair is usually pulled up, wears contacts because she doesn't like her glasses (even though she rocks them!)

One Line Description of Character: Dedicated businesswoman who knows when to let loose

Tell Us About the Character: She works in a fancy city office, probably considered a workaholic, and is usually dressed up. When she's at home, however, she likes jeans and a t-shirt - it doesn't take much for her to turn into the girl-next-door, raised in the country; she's most likely to carry a case of copy paper from the supply room to the copier. She's worn the same necklace, every day, for nearly ten years -sometimes having to adjust her outfit to coordinate to the necklace- as it was a gift from her grandfather. Likes to go to the bar to watch sporting events, but isn't much of a drinker. Not currently dating anyone, and not really looking... though her friends are constantly trying to set her up. Favorite snack is celery and carrots, with ranch dressing; favorite dish is plain spaghetti and some garlic bread.

What's a story only a brother or sister would know about her?: Her older brother was suspended from school for two days in the ninth grade for fighting in the cafeteria. Another student was talking about Mel and promptly punched in the face, fracturing his nose. Mel threw the punch, but her brother claimed responsibility. The punchee refused to admit he was hit by a girl, therefore only three people know. But her grandfather always suspected she did it.

Love the ideas (especially the punching story).

Just so you know, the genre section is basically what type of story you'd put her in :)

And now that you mention it, I could really see her in glasses.

For the genre: All I could see was the office from Kate & Leopold... and that was a romantic-comedy(?)..

It would probably be an original story...

Yes, this is a Tin Man OC....
Character Name: Lillian Carter

Genre: Um...I'm with Erin, I'm not sure I know what goes here, but for the sake of following directions...angst/romance

Describe the Character Physically in Your Own Words: She's shorter than average, but not by much. Her diamond face is usually covered with the dirt that only comes from living off the land. She's almost too skinny but she blames that on the fact that she hasn't had a real meal in almost fifteen annuals. Her dirty blonde hair is always pulled up, usually out of necessity because it's too much trouble to worry about her hair, but she doesn't have time to cut it all off. Her light blue eyes hold more sorrow than they should considering she's just hitting her eighteenth birthday.

One Line Description of Character: A down on her luck country girl who knows how to get revenge and won't take no for an answer.

Tell Us About the Character: Born three years before the rise of the Witch, Lily has known nothing but war. Her parents were killed in a village raid when she was fifteen. Her brother and his pregnant wife were killed in an attack in Central City a few years later. Because of this, Lily is extremely bitter and wants justice if not revenge. After the Witch's demise, though the Royal Family claims to be rebuilding the O.Z., Lily sees none of this. In retaliation, she threatens the youngest princess and eventually is arrested. She speaks to the queen and explains her and the rest of the peoples situation beyond the boundaries of Central City. Hearing this, the queen lets her go. Lily eventually also meets the former witch and speaks her mind about her losses and the losses of those around her. She tries to make the Royal Family see that there is more to fix than the buildings in the O.Z. and that the kingdom will never be fully healed and that the people there need justice. (And that got really long)

What's a story only a brother or sister would know about her?: When she was twelve, Lily and one of the local boys sneaked out after curfew and shared their first kiss in the Henderson's barn loft. Her older brother found them and proceeded to beat the snot out of the local boy before taking Lily home. She didn't talk to her brother for a week after that.

Re: Yes, this is a Tin Man OC....
Cool ideas! Like the description of a diamond face...she has got one now I look!

I've updated the genre bit so it's a bit more clear (this comm is only a few hours old so I'm still working out the kinks!) but all you need to know is that the genre section is just the type of story or fic you'd put them in.

Might as well get started on the bios for my original fic...
Since I didn't see a policy regulating adult content, I thought it would be better to at least put a warning up about some more questionable material in my sketch.

Warning: Some content in this character sketch may not be suitable for all audiences.

Character Name: Chasteen
Genre: Fantasy / Vampire Myth
Describe the Character Physically in Your Own Words: Chasteen is the most dangerous kind of beauty. She has long golden curls, crystal blue eyes, a full and tempting mouth, and the body of a goddess. She stands tall at 5'10", with long legs, a sleek torso, and ample curves. Her porcelain skin gives a false impression of frailty, but anyone who has a very close encounter with her knows that she is dangerous and powerful.
One Line Description of Character: A powerful and dangerous leader of the denizens of the night, Chasteen is not someone to be taken lightly.
Tell Us About the Character: Chasteen is the leader of a powerful group of vampires. She is ancient beyond anyone's knowledge, perhaps even her own. Through the centuries, her tenacity and ambition have made her name widely known throughout the World of Shadows. There aren't many vampires who exist who don't know her name or reputation. She only allows a few of her peers into her inner circle of trust, and even fewer really know that much about her. Her past is shrouded in mystery, adding to the impression of power. Her surname is unknown.
What's a story only a brother or sister would know about her??: Chasteen was actually turned in ancient times by a vampire who had lusted over her from a distance. After he turned her, raping her in the process, he found that she was not as desirable as she had once been. He abandoned her, leaving her to survive on her own.

What a great name Chasteen is for a Vampire. Would love to learn a little about her inner circle of trust and how she treats those chosen few.

Oh and I forgot to say that yes you can post some adult concepts but if it's quite detailed then a warning is fine.

Re: Might as well get started on the bios for my original fic...
I would give the girl a hug.. but I'm afraid she'd bite me ;)

She sounds like a bad-ass, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Re: Might as well get started on the bios for my original fic...
It's really a shame that she's such a minor character at this point. We might not get to see much of her... =(

Sorry, are you referring to mine or someone else's? *iz confuzzled*

She's going to be a very minor character in my novel for NaNoWriMo. As in, this is probably the most attention she'll get. =D

Character Name: Gabrielle Stevens (pen name Gabe Smith always signs G.S.)
Genre (type of story you'd put them in): Crime Drama set in the 1920's
Describe the Character Physically in Your Own Words: Waif-like, not a physically strong character, and slightly clumsy. She is all arms and legs. She is often taken for granted for her looks.
One Line Description of Character: A clumsy blond with a brain.
Tell Us About the Character: She is a writer of great proportions but is not taken seriously unless she writes under a male pen name. She keeps her head low and her pennies tight as she faces the times ahead. Always wishing she could write under her own name she draws from the experiences around her to inspire her characters. That is how she gets herself into trouble. She write about another tenant in her building making up a facade of a character and a false bank robbery, only to have it hit too close to home. Now her writing persona is being sought by the police for information, the local crime syndicate for elimination and every other person who wants the money from the robbery. What is a girl to do but call on the only person who can save the day... Gabe Smith to the rescue.
What's a story only a brother or sister would know about her?: That one of the goriest descriptions she wrote was actually based on her helping birth a baby sheep.

Character Name: Harper Moss

Genre: general/romance, Tin Man 'verse

Describe the Character Physically in Your Own Words: average height, fair-skinned, bright smile and should probably eat a little more than she does as the ladies in the shop constantly remind her

One Line Description of Character: She's just a girl from the country who's lost everyone dear to her and is just trying to get by in the city.

Tell Us About the Character: Harper works at Jaden's, in Central City. After the Last Stand, her father, Clay, sent her to the city to be safe which is a joke, if you think about it and he, her brother and Gabe, her love, all headed off to join the Resistance. She's suffering through life with her jerk of a boss, Mr. Greene, because she loves what she does and, in a crazy random happenstance, is befriended by a Zipperhead and a princess.

What's a story only a brother or sister would know about her?: hrmm... I'll have to get back to you on that... Jeremiah's currently being self-sacrificing and heroic *facepalm*
