Yay exposition dance: Dinah Lance, Sophie Devereaux, Miss Parker
Miss Parker, mparkerceo
* AKA Parker to her friends (but not to be confused with abetterthief)
* From the suspense/drama TV series Pretender.
* Class of 2007, just finished her second year at Oxford
* 5'10", Armani, Prada, manicured, sharp and shiny, shoe addict.
* Currently rooming in L.A. with swerval_zero and peter__parker due to torturous backstory reasons that can be found here,
* Carries a concealed .Sig Sauer and wears deadly stilettos wherever she goes.
* Snarly, bitchy, defensive, but a good friend.

Sophie Devereaux, magdaofslovenia, AKA Princess Magda of Slovenia, and about zillion other aliases
* From the current TNT show Leverage (the same as Parker-the-thief mentioned above)
* Con-woman/retired-grifter/art-thief, former teacher here, and currently owns the Fourth Dimension Art Gallery in town.
* Is hiring! See me for details if you want a job.
* 5'6", and shares Parker's thing for expensive, shiny, shoes.
* Here in the middle of her canon, in between Seasons 1 and 2.
* When she's not running a con, she's the World's Worst Actress--
* --Catch her in the The Scottish Play (AKA Macbeth) next week at the Boards!

Dinah Lance, blondecanary, AKA Black Canary
* From the TV series Birds of Prey, based loosely on the DC Comics of the same name.
* 17 years old, senior, from New Gotham, NJ, part-time crimefighter and aspiring superhero.
* Adopted daughter of Barbara Gordon, AKA Oracle, but refers to Barbara and fellow crimefighter Huntress (Helena Kyle) as her sisters.
* Here since January. Loves it. Bouncy, enthusiastic, adrenaline-addicted, friendly dork (although she's calming down a bit with more responsibility and some of her experiences here).
* 5'10", casual, jockette, curious, aspiring P.I. if you ask.
* Has superpowers:
-- Telekinesis: can and will telekinetically throw pillows and popcorn at people in Common Rooms for fun; feel free to duck, since in those situations she's unlikely to be trying too hard. Air walks! Can touch you or tap your nose so you feel it. She's capable of picking someone up with her telekinesis and slamming them into a wall at least twenty feet away, but I won't have her do anything like that (or the touching) without your permission and a really good IC reason (such as hurting someone else).
-- Clairvoyant Dreams: Dinah has dreams about friends in trouble, but again, not without your prior permission.
-- Touch Telepathy: Dinah has a bracelet that keeps her from reading anyone, and from being telepathically read. When not wearing it, Dinah's ability to control her touch-telepathy has increased to the point where she hasn't accidentally read anyone in a while now-- but under stress, threat of danger, or extreme emotion, it can still get by her attempts to keep people out. That said, I won't have her read anyone without prior permission, and/or checking on it with you in the thread, and if you don't want her to read you, don't touch her. Pretty simple. If new characters want to give blanket future permission or denial for her to telepathically read you below, it'd be appreciated.
-- Crimefighter: She has going on two year's worth of martial arts and weapons training now, and takes it very very seriously. She can beat someone who doesn't have training in a fight without using her powers; with them, she can take on larger attackers and more than one person. She's not the best fighter here, but she is insanely persistent and stubborn.
-- Do-gooder: If Dinah sees someone in trouble or danger, she'll want to help. But I won't have her step in and take action until after I've checked with you-- since you may have your own hero already lined up in the wings to save the day-- and also because that can get exhausting to play. (Really exhausting.) If you *do* want her to do something like that, give me a head's up first, so I know what's going on.

Chris, AKA Kiki and often Parker, since she's my longest-running character in-game. Online teacher in Wyoming, been playiner here at Fandom since the beginning of the game, and I can be reached on AIM at Evieparkfh, and via email at charlieveparker @ gmail.com. I love IM'ing with people but I get overwhelmed in chats, so feel free to ping me with questions if you have them. I also happen to be a Ditz; I have regularly forgotten that Isabel and Zero don't drink (and they've been friends for four years) and Fiona doesn't eat (a major plot point) and not to out Dinah herself to Raven as the future Black Canary (which wouldn't do the JLU version any favors, no?). If my characters forget something they should know, or more importantly, something they shouldn't know? Feel free to stop me before I ditz again; I'll be happy to edit, change, back up, or erase a comment you're not happy with.

That's it! And again, if new characters/players want to comment with permission/denial for Dinah to touch-telepathically read them in the comments, that would be great, but I'll assume she can't if you don't.

Feel free to have Dinah read Alex, if you'd like. I don't mind one bit.

Also? Totally started watching Pretender for like, the first time ever. I may be a little excited about that show.

You can read Helen and Millie (livingasheth) if you'd like.
