Well, he was with the original Teen Titans, wasn't he? So that makes sense. He could be younger in this timeline than he might otherwise be, if we wanted to do that, or we could safely say he was the overseer of the new team, probably self-appointed.

Well, the concerns are premature, at least until the team is actually, y'know, selected.

OH, there was no actual concern, more curiosity. You'd said teen to young adult in age range anyways, so he still probably fits there well enough. If anything, if he did make the cut, his age and experience would lend to him being a leader. Most of the other submissions are pretty light on worldly experience as such.

True, even Scylla that has been around for millennia, is pretty naive, or at least that's what I wanted get to look like, not sure if I managed to do it properly

I'm tempted to put "tasty" under Scylla's impressions of everyone heh.

Will do them later (and properly)

Besides, maturity is overrated! (This is not commentary on who will or won't be in the game, and is purely intended as a silly joke.)

I edited my character, Yumiko Kumagawa (The Sonic Samurai). Hope it's all good now!

Guys, I'm astonished at the sheer number of fantastic submissions. I do not look forwards to the task of weaning down the numbers to just choose as many as I noted in the OP.

Thank you all so much.

Even if I don't get chosen it was fun making the backstory.

Even if I am not chosen, I will still be interested in seeing how it all develops.

All very true. Question, is it evident that Scylla is intended to fill an aquaman role? Basically super strong and swimming.

Aha! I had wondered what the intention was, but that does make things more obvious, yes.

I have added Grace and Blue Beetle. :)

It an interesting mix of backgrounds for these characters too; some who have lost families before or during the regime, some who haven't lost anyone but have personal reasons for fighting, and some who just kinda fell into their powers and took up the superhero gig as a natural course of action.

Yeah if you look at the build, aside from the monstrous transformation, she is aquaman without the "I can speak to fish" gig. Super strong grappling specialist, tank oriented, water based, with atlantean connections.

Good evening everybody,

I realize y'all have not seen me before. I ran across this game as I was looking around the boards, and I thought I would toss my hat into the ring as this looks like a good game. I will provide stats for the character before the Monday deadline, as am still hashing out a few details, but I'll give you the all important background material now.

SYMBA AKA “the Desert Lioness”

History: A Nubian woman from the Kushite kingdom (what is today northern Sudan), later resided in Egyptian city of Memphis until her death.
Age: appears to be in early 20s, in reality is over 3,000 years old

Physical Description: see above, stands 5’ 6,” with dark brown skin, green eyes and long black hair braided, decorated, and worn to shoulder blades,. Symba has the lean muscular body of a warrior and her poise is both aristocratic and commanding. When going into combat she wears knee guards, bracers and armor over her upper torso, and carries a round hoplite shield. The combination gives Symba good protection, agility and freedom of movement. When she needs them, her weapons include a magic sword given to her by the Egyptian cat goddess Bastet, and a quiver of throwing spears.

Background: Raised in the Kingdom of Kush from birth to be a warrior, Symba would have a short, though full life as a mortal woman. Joining the Egyptian army at a very young age, she would demonstrate considerable bravery on the battlefield, earning her nickname “the Desert Lioness,” and the attention of Egypt’s Pharaoh Taharqa.

Symba was selected by Pharaoh to become a bodyguard for his sister Queen Naparaye. Both Queen and warrior would soon become close friends, but Symba would die protecting her Queen from assassins. For her sacrifice, Symba received the gift of immortality as an Amazon. The Egyptian goddess Bastet, who Symba worshiped throughout her short mortal life also bestowed several gifts upon the young warrior, including a magical sword known as the “Claw of Bastet.”

Like a lioness protecting cubs, Symba developed a philosophy of being a defender of mankind (even from itself if necessary), based on her upbringing and influence of her long standing lover the Amazon sculptress, Iphthime. Unfortunately, as time went on, Symba’s opinion increasingly became the minority, especially following Wonder Woman’s murder of Steve Trevor. When One Earth’s Diana joined the Regime, Symba and her lover became fearful for their safety, and left Paradise Island to join Batman. As hard as it was to leave their sisters, both knew they had to help combat Superman’s brutal dictatorship.

When the Prime Earth Wonder Woman managed to sway the Amazons away from being conquers, Symba was greatly relieved. Once the conflict with the Regime ended, Symba and Iphthime returned to Paradise Island to an uneasy homecoming. Some Amazons shunned them as traitors or were outright hostile. But enough, long standing friends welcomed Symba home. Soon, Symba was given a new mission. With their very name tainted because of Diana’s actions, an Amazon needed to join the new Justice League to help rebuild their reputation. And with so many heroes lost, the new Wonder Woman Nu’bia knew she would need help…

Complications:
Relationship: Symba and Iphthime are extremely close. Symba knows that there are many who would seek to hurt her by attacking her lover. And while Iphthime is an Amazon, and capable of defending herself, she is also an artist, and not a true warrior.

Motivation: Do good
Symba seeks to restore the Amazons honor and reputation by being a true hero to the world, even if it means sacrificing herself. To this end, Symba will not kill an enemy, brutalize a captive, or attack an enemy that is helpless.
