Name: Willow (Willa) Dibs
Personality: Willow is a tender girl, with not much experience in her back pocket. I know I want her to have some determination in her, a contrast between her small look but fight in her blood. But she's innocent, and this journey of hers, being a shapeshifter who has no control in her animal form, is a story of her eyes seeing things she never even could imagine before.
The sight of blood, a corpse of any animal or thing, those kind of things make her afraid and sick and heartbroken. The idea that she is the reason they died, that it was her hand that caused the death, terrifies her. She walks with the guilt and burden on her shoulders. She's fragile. But that doesn't mean she isn't brave enough to still search and discover more about her own ability, and there's a special contrast in that too.
You can't see her face but I just see a lot of Willow. Willow aesthetic. Like an exploring, curious sort of girl. She's petite and short. Small upturned nose because I see that in the photo and it's super cute. Short hair, usually a messy bun, because that's super cute too. She is gonna be cute. A cutie pie that can turn into a bloody killer.
Backstory: Pretty much our beginning plotline. Her brother goes missing and she finds him dead (murdered by hunters), wearing a bracelet. She takes it for sentimental value, puts it on, so I guess she gives off the scent of a shifter because she is wearing that cursed bracelet. And the hunter(s?) start going after her and she doesn't get why, and I'm thinking we can start on the timeline right before her first shift, before she realizes what she became. Idk I'm just imagining the hilarity of her running and wondering why this hot hunter man is chasing after her like "THE BRACELET GET HER" and she's like "what the frick it's just a bracelet" lolol
Because she wasn't officially bitten by anything or born as a shifter, but instead became one just by wearing a bracelet, maybe it's a different, dangerous kind of breed of shifters? Like, because of the unnatural way of genetic mutations, the outcome of the animal might be extremely dangerous and maybe even deformed, even more than a normal shifter. It would almost be like the hunters have good intentions, trying to protect people not just from shifters, but from the more dangerous kind that are being created through the bracelet.
Idk, I'm just trying to think of some other motivations for my own hunter, but it kind of makes sense though, right?
Name: Mitchell Howells
Species: Human. (Hunter)
Personality: He’s my newest dude, so he’s pretty colorless for the most part loooooool. Here’s what I do know: Mitchell sees the underdog and would risk his life to pick them back up. He has a big heart and can see past his own problems. Emotions don’t affect his better judgement, however the heartbreak over his fiancee's death because of a shifter is his motivation to be a hunter. So I guess love is a different story. Now, as a hunter, his goal is to protect those unable to defend themselves and he holds strong, stubborn beliefs in the dangers of the shifters.
His hair is usually in a ponytail or bun. This photo reminded me - is this modern time (like hunting with guns) or is this a medieval setting, like swords and bows and arrows? If this is medieval, I want him to hunt with that ax too bc that's so legit I love it.
Backstory: He’s my newest dude so I don’t have much other than being a hunter out of hatred over shifters. No one specific in mind, he’ll just kill anyone who’s a shifter because of his strong beliefs that they are dangerous.
