Name: Irene Sylvia Miller
Species: Domestic Cat/Scandinavian Red Fox mix
Outside, Irene seems normal enough. Nice. Demure. Helpful. Thoughtful. A little bit quiet and nervous when someone first meets her. She prefers to put on a cute, charming disposition to draw people in.
Years of practice have made her habits and quirks malleable, and she is good at picking them up from the other women in her neighborhood. The face she puts on around others is never the same among each person she talks to. She refuses to let men see who she really is behind her acting, as she believes they are not entitled to her time or energy.
In her eyes, it makes things all the more fun when she strikes.
Name: Edward Miller
Species: Eurasian Otter
He has a smug confidence that tends to permeate everything he does. He is cocky around civilians, as well as cold, calloused, and blunt. However, he can be soft-hearted, tender, and sympathetic when he cares for other people. He tries to hide it through a thick skin and a dry sense of humor. Even though he is not talkative on the surface, he shows his heart in other ways, mostly through his actions.
He has his weaknesses though, mainly in the form of whiskey and his good friend, Connor.
Name: Connor Dean Mallory
Species: Domestic Cat/Eurasian Lynx mix
Connor is a veteran who is a God-fearing, patriotic American, as he would describe himself. In reality, he’s one of the nastiest people to cross the planet. Connor has a domineering, serious disposition. He is headstrong and not afraid to take charge of a situation. In fact, he feels the constant need to be in control of a situation, or other people, whenever it is possible for him to do so. At the end of the day, he only cares about his own goals and desires.
Name: Michiko Yoshida
Species: Tanuki/Japanese Fox mix
Curious about the world around her, she is never one to say no to a good adventure, small or large. She doesn't wear her heart on her sleeve and opts for a soft-spoken, meek, down-trodden, and humble disposition instead. Her stout and innocent appearance can charm someone. She is a determined, focused, and stubborn woman, not being able to let go of something once it impacts her. Underneath it all is a self-deprecating woman who disguises her self-loathing with humility. She is easily resentful and bitter, but slow to lash out when things go wrong. Her deep-seated guilt occasionally expresses itself in outbursts that she quickly backs down from.
