Annabel and Rick need the rest of their Firefly crew friends on site.  Face claims are obviously non-negotiable.
SAUL CROAKER | 32 | OPEN AFFILIATION | NATHAN FILLIONLike Rick still is and Anna used to be, Saul is an unspeakable. He’s also Rick’s closest friend. Blunt and to the point, he hasn’t been the best at helping Rick cope with his grief after Anna “died.” He’s more the type to take Rick out for a drink and not notice the burgeoning alcoholism that his friend is sinking into. Saul isn’t a bad guy - in fact, he has a soft spot for Anna, and likely took her death pretty hard in secret - he’s just a little bit on the gruff side.
BILLIUS WEASLEY | 32 | ORDER MEMBER | ALAN TUDYKHaving met on the train to Hogwarts as first years, Annabel and Billius have a long standing, close friendship. Anna and Rick were in the same social circle in school despite their different houses, and Billy - as Anna called him - was right there with them. These two were very close, and while he’s a naturally cheerful person, he’s still coming to terms with the fact that one of his best friends is gone. After Brodie, it’s him that probably misses her the most. But he, at least, has a support system in his lovely non-wife, Mariah. Being a little eccentric - and because canon says Billius never married - these two are monogamous life partners, but see no point in making it official with a trip down the aisle.
MARIAH SPINNET | 30 | ORDER MEMBER | GINA TORRESMariah was in Hufflepuff, a year behind Annabel. She was a bit of a late comer to Anna’s group of friends - the two women only became close after Mariah came to work on the Experimental Charms Committee with Annabel. She’s the one who officially introduced Mariah to Billius, and the two of them have been together almost ever since. Mariah isn’t interested in marriage or having children (the reason is up to you), but she and Billius live together and are essentially married. They’re both fighting Order members, and while Anna’s “death” had nothing to do with the war, it certainly has Mariah contemplating her own mortality. She and Billius try and be there for Rick as much as they can these days, and are starting to get concerned with his drinking.
PRIYA KHAN | 28 | NEUTRAL | MORENA BACCARINAnnabel has three very best friends: Laurentia Fletwock, Billius Weasley, and Priya Khan. Priya was the latest to enter Anna’s life, but they had an almost instantaneous connection. The only non-Hogwarts grad of the group, Priya is relatively new to England. She works for the Ministry for the Department of International Magical Cooperation. She’s essentially something of a diplomat, and that’s the stance she takes towards the war. This isn’t her country, and she isn’t getting involved. That being said, she loves the Bodes dearly, and while she mourned her friend’s passing, it didn’t cripple her ability to go on with her life. She’s trying to help Rick move on and let go of his grief, but she’s failing in that regard, and he’s only pushing her away more - since she was Anna’s friend, she’s a constant reminder of what he lost.
LILA CROAKER | 24 | OPEN AFFILIATION | SUMMER GLAULila is really only connected to the group of friends because she’s Saul’s little sister. There isn’t much of an existing relationship between her and the Bodes outside of Saul. However, Lila is a seer who is still coming into her gift. She isn’t always sure what to make of her visions and prophecies, and the ones she’s been having of Annabel Bode still being alive are throwing her for a loop. For now, she’s kept them to herself, not wanting to upset Anna’s husband or her brother, but they’re getting stronger, and she feels the need to tell somebody.
BENEDICT WARBECK | 65 | OPEN AFFILIATION | RON GLASSOld Ben is the Head Unspeakable in the Department of Mysteries. He’s the one who trained up Saul, Rick, and Anna. He isn’t the effusive type to view his protege as his children or anything, but he likes working with them and thinks they’re good people. He has some residual guilt over Anna’s death, having been the one to sign off on the expedition in the first place. And he’s keeping a close eye on Rick to make sure he’s still capable of doing the job without his wife. Fun fact: Ben is married to Celestina Warbeck, singer of such songs as [i]A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love.[/i] Have fun with that.
AUGUSTUS ROOKWOOD | 27 | DEATH EATER | ADAM BALDWINAnother Unspeakable, Augustus has been a Death Eater since he got out of school. He’s a halfblood, so you can get creative with the reasoning. He always had a difficult time working with Annabel because he was supposed to hate her for being muggleborn, but dangit if she isn’t really hard to actively hate. She confused him, and it was more of a relief than anything when she died. He’s interested in recruiting for the almighty cause and is hoping Rick’s grief and anger can be used as a catalyst to bring the blood traitor over to the “right” side of things.

The Toxin
Mason is quite possibly the worst person for Courtney and she needs to open her eyes and realize it. She he head over heels for him and he knows it. He uses her constantly. He’ll build her up only to let her down in spectacular fashion over and over. He blows her off all the time and when he doesn’t he is always at least a half an hour late because he doesn’t care. He has absolutely no intention of ever actually dating the poor girl but he also realizes that if she ever does find someone that does care about her she’ll stop doing everything for him. Because of that he is super critical of any guy she pays any attention to which, lets be honest, is a lot because Courtney is legitimately crushing on pretty much every mildly interesting/attractive guy around her age at least mildly. I’ve mentioned his name and the fact that he’s at least somewhat connected to her cosplay in a post but that is all negotiable.
The Secretary
This woman is the secretary for the Chemistry Department at Olsson. Mrs. Newton does not like the students much at all and hates them hanging out in the office as a rule. Over the last few years though Courtney has managed to wear her down. Now the two have a kind of odd friendship. I use that term loosely. It is more of a not hatred on Mrs. Newton’s part. What her story is, is totally up to you. I just think it would be a fun dynamic to play out.
The Cosplayers
Courtney just needs her cosplay friends/rivals/frenemies. These guys all compete against each other at the different conventions but because they see each other so much they have a friendship that has developed, even if they are all kind of hoping that their costume falls to pieces in the middle of judging. This group is totally open as far as gender ratios and what they are doing in their life outside of cosplay. They are probably all close in age though I see Courtney being towards the younger end of the spectrum.
The Comic Store Crew
Again this is a totally open group as well. These are the people that Courtney sees every Friday night for Magic. They can work at the store or just be a regular like her. Age range is totally open. All that matters is that they can spend hours chatting with this girl while simultaneously trying to destroy her blue-green evolving creature deck or her elf deck on commander deck nights (good luck). (Also, yes I am enough of a nerd to have made her Magic decks judge me all you want)
As you can see there is a lot of wiggle room with all of these characters. They all have open faces, groups, occupations, history, marital status, etc. You can even change the names I have written in here as well if you would like. All that is written is all that I have set in stone for them but feel free to ask me any questions.

itseverythingrp:

The Mother
I’m mean to all of the characters I have a hand in creating but Momma Scheer has had more than her fair share of problems. She got pregnant with Daniel her senior year of high school. Cue the shotgun wedding. Her husband joined the Navy to support his family and was deployed to the Persian Gulf fifteen years after their wedding while she was pregnant with Jack. Her husband was killed in action and she did not take the news well. She fell into a crippling depression and became very possessive of her sons. Dan had to pretty much take care of everything because there were days she would not even get out of bed. Fast forward to Jack’s first day of school. She had a major mental break when Jack left her and she caused a huge scene at the school. The State got involved and declared her an unfit mother. Daniel also had to decide to institutionalize her and she has been in a psychiatric hospital ever since.

Dan moved her down to Florida when he came down to take care of Jack’s legal trouble. What her diagnosis is is totally up to you. She should just have a difficult time taking care of herself much less others and in my head she struggles with the passage of time. She should be about sixty years old. Her PB is open as long as she looks like her sons.

The Brother
This is Daniel’s little brother, Jack (I’m kind of stuck on this name but can be talked out of it if you hate it). These two have a very odd relationship. Daniel is the only father figure that Jack has ever known which just complicates their whole relationship. Jack has been rebellious ever since Dan and his wife took him in when he was six. Dan’s wife died when Jack was twelve which left Dan in the role of single parent which was when he started to really get into trouble. Dan took on a different role in his business when Jack was fifteen to keep a closer eye on him. Jack moved away from New York to Hidden Valley for school where he proceeded to live a life filled with partying, drinking and a revolving door of women and/or men. He was arrested in what was supposed to be his senior year which is what brought Dan and their mother to Florida. He’s still in school but back on track now that his brother has become a constant presence in his life again. He works at the restaurant and maybe even lives with his brother so he can keep a closer eye on him.

These two fight all the time. They still love each other though. They just don’t know how to reconcile the fact that they are brothers with the fact that Daniel has essentially raised Jack as his own kid. He should be about twenty-seven now. PB is open (Don Hood keeps popping into my head if you want a suggestion). Daniel just really needs his little brother around

The Ex
Rhiannon was the first woman he dated after his wife passed away when he was twenty seven. These two dated from when he was 35-37. Jack was finally out of the house so he was not his top priority anymore and finally allowed himself to be social. Rhiannon was not as self sacrificing as Dan’s wife was and was not about to change her life to make Daniel’s easier so their relationship ended when he moved to Hidden Valley. Last he knew she was engaged and therefore has not tried to contact her at all.

She’s totally open. Why she’s decided that Hidden Valley is the place to be now is up to you as is whether she’s still engaged, married, suddenly single, whatever. Even her age is open as long as she is within a reasonable range of him. These two do not have to have anything close to a romantic relationship now. I just want to have her be a part of his life again because she is one of the people that Dan will just never understand.

The Staff
Daniel is a demanding boss. I’m not even going to beat around the bush with that. He will give loud lectures about the way things should be done and then say something completely different the next day. To work for him you just need to go with the flow. All that being said he is quite possibly one of the best bosses to have. He takes care of his employees like family. He plays matchmaker. He makes sure they are always working with the best tools and coworkers. Heck, don’t have money to take your significant other out for your anniversary, he’ll probably foot the bill. He’s just a great guy despite his bombastic and constantly changing ways.

He needs everyone. Sous chefs, line cooks, maître d, waiters/waitresses, bus boys and dishwashers. He holds everyone to the same standards but is also just as willing to help them regardless of how high up on the restaurant totem pole they are. His restaurant, Woodfire Grille, is a casual fine dining restaurant and is one of the most meticulously kept places in Hidden Valley.

As you can see there is a lot of wiggle room with all of these characters. They all have open faces, groups, occupations, history, marital status, etc. You can even change the names I have written in here as well if you would like. All that is written is all that I have set in stone for them but feel free to ask me any questions.

Teens - Medium - Sarah Jarosz
This young lady here is quite open for the most part. Whether she lives on one of the first two floors or is going to be moving into the third floor when the apartments are finished is up to you. She should be very different from Lina in that she is more independent and a feminist. More important, though, is what they have in common. This girl is quite musical which is what draws Lina to her. She most likely only had the hints of an idea that she is a medium. She would not have really realized it until moving to Whispering Pines. Because she is a medium she is more of a target for the other spirits than the rest of her family. So Lina takes up trying to defend her and hangs around when the girl is most vulnerable. The two develop a friendship which only cements Lina’s determination to keep her safe.
