Name: Castra Nickname: "Cassie" Species:Protoceratops multilingous Gender: Female Age: 93 Length: 8 feet Height: approx. 3 feet to the top of her frill Weight: 425 pounds Eye Color: Green Body Color: Salmon with yellow underside Notable Marks/Scars/Etc.: She has a piercing on the tip of her tail with a gold ring hooked through it, having fancied earrings that female humans often wore, but unable to pierce her frill.
Location: Waterfall City Profession: Translator and teacher at the Haven of the Muses Hobbies: Reading, taking long walks, exploring Languages: Fluent in over thirty languages, human and saurian
Other: Cassie is the lone offspring of the great Ambassador Bix. Bix was briefly mated to a fellow translator in Waterfall City and had just laid the egg when an earthquake destroyed the hatchery she had just laid in. All of the eggs were destroyed except Cassie's, her father giving his life to make sure that the egg was safe. She didn't know who laid her egg until she was about seven summers old and taking classes at the academy in Waterfall City. There, she met the hatchery worker that took her egg to Romano's Hatchery near Pooktook and she led her to Bix.
(In a modern-time RP, Cassie will have assumed the duties of Ambassador that Bix performed. She will also have a mate and a son as well. In a book-time RP, she will just be your typical translator/teacher/explorer Protoceratops.)
Romana Raptor Name:Romana Raptor Age: in human years, 14 Species:Utahraptor Color:Blue with green splotches, burgandy feather crest and tailfeathers, and an orance sunsopt over her eyes. yellow eyes and black claws. (hasnt changed in 5 years...yeesh) Other: a young adult, she is about one and a half inch than your average utahraptor.
Spike Silverclaw Name:Spike Silverclaw Age:in human years 15 Species:Utahraptor Color: Rust colored with a yellow circle around his eye. yellow eyes, and black claws, blood red feather crest and tailfeathers. yellow wave stripe down his neck, arms, and legs, and along his tail. Other: young adult, about an inch shorter than romana, he is her consort.
no....NOOO.....THESE ARE MY CHEESE PUFFS! MINE! *hiss*
I figured I might as well join. Umm... The first char is me, and I'll use it in all RP's. The second 2 will only be used in the RP I started, and nowhere else. Let's see...
Name: Kiva Stoutheart Age: 18-20 years (date of birth is unknown) Height: 5' 5” Hair: Reddish-brown with blonde highlights, length to the middle of her back Eyes: gray Gender: Female... duh.
Background: Shipwrecked as a toddler, Kiva was found by the Alpha Female of the Quickstrike Clan of Giganotosauruses. Growing up in their company, Kiva learned the Theropod dialect before any other language. A passing convoy taught her Basic Dinotopian. Later contact with the land around the Basin taught her several languages. She can speak fluent English, French, Italian, Spanish, and Latin. She also knows a smattering of other languages such as German, Chinese, etc. She also speaks many Saurian languages; but her most fluent ones are all dialects of Theropod and Raptor.
Kiva was betrothed to a man named Jorgen Masters, a convoy leader. However, a week before their marriage, Jorgen fell from his perch atop his Brachiosaur partner, Skyhigh, and was tragically killed. She returned to the Rainy Basin shortly after the accident, and has stayed with her family, leaving only when a special translator or the skills of an ambassador are needed.
Now for my temporary characters...
Name: Ryka (Pronounced REE-ka) Age: Appearance of a 20 year old, but her species does not factor an age. Species: Nekonian (Mostly human features, save for the eyes, ears, occasionally tail and markings of a feline.) Height: 5' 7” Hair: Black, length to her shoulders Eyes: Gold, pupils may contract to slits Gender: Female
Background: Ryka lives on a parallel Earth. In her world, the reigning species is hers; the Nekonian. Humans do not exist. Ryka's mate, Lian, was killed by a powerful warlord, Kegato, protecting a valuable artifact.
Name: Kegato Age: Same as Ryka's, whatever it is. Species: Nekonian Height: 6' 1” Hair: Black with silver streak on the side, length is short. Eyes: Same as Ryka's Gender: Male
Background: Kegato grew up the son of a wealthy lord, but was greedy for more power. Waging war with the neighboring kingdoms, he gained 4 of the 5 pieces of the portal's key. Lian and Ryka held the final piece of the key, and Kegato was close to acquiring it, but Lian fought valiantly and Ryka escaped with the final piece. He's been hunting her down ever since.
Name: Highsoar Species: Skybax Gender: F Age: hard to say in human years. Young adult. Color: light tan or apricot with red crest and tricolor neck:red, black and white. Red and white beak. Locations: Lives at the rookery but wanders a lot Likes: fishing, chocolate, reading Interesting facts: Has the Windchaser human speech fluke, but she only uses it when she has to, it's hard on Skybax throat anatomy.
At one point she had a rider but he died during a Basin mission. She didn't go mean though. She hasn't accpted another rider yet but still helps out wherever she can.
Alright so I already started to play with, but I should introduce her anyway.
Name: Mirin (Mee-rin) Age: 100 Species: Sidhe (Pronounced She) Height: 5' 11" Eyes: Her eyes are a beautiful emerald green with golden starbursts around the pupils. She has forest green speckles randomly through-out the iris, creating the tri-colored eye that is common in the Sidhe. Hair: A deep red, not the carrot red that humans have, but more of fresh-blood red, with ruby colored highlights. Clothing: Here on Dinotopia, all she has is her emerald green dress and an auburn shift over it. She's wearing forest green slipper-like shoes. Her clothing is Sidhe made and will outlast any human crafted cloth. She wears the Ring of Fate, which is the symbol of her Royal upbringing. History: The only daughter of King NicEssus, Mirin was brought up to help her people. The only living Sidhe with two Hands of Power, the Sidhe's form of magic, everyone thought Mirin was destined to rule. But she didn't want to. When she found a fragment of an ancient spell to open the Gateway, she took the chance to save her people, and tried to open it, only trapping herself on Dinotopia.
Mirin is only used in Kiva's Shattered Peace RP, but I still like her.

Name: Safyre Species: Quetzalcoatlus Skybax Age: 10 years (full-grown though) Gender: female Height: near 15 feet Wingspan: 25 feet
Markings: Typical Skybax markings, blue coloration instead of red.
Location: Nesting near the Rookery but too shy to make contact.
Languages: Several basic human and suarian languages that her brother, Skyfyre, taught her.
Safyre and her brother, Skyfyre, live near the Rookery. Skyfyre is part of a Surveillance group that monitors the goings-on of the Island, ensuring that there is no trouble. Safyre is shy about her odd coloration, and has never had anyone ride her.
Skyfyre has the same info as Safyre, only he is normal. (Any ohter questions about these chars, just PM me.)

Brightfeather Species - Microraptor Length - 77 cm Gender - female Weight - Some things you shouldn't ask a lady. (Of course, I haven't seen two scientists agree, but we're talking flight-worthy, hollow-boned, and magpie kind of size.)
Brightfeather is a dromaesaurid, but it's easy to mistake her for a bird... Until you see the wings coming off her back legs. She can flap for lift and her flight abilities correspond fairly well to a small pterosaur's, though she's more agile in the air, but less adept at long flights. The tip of her tail has a diamond of brightly colored feathers - iridescent blue/green, like a mallard drake's head. She has patches of blue feathers on her crest and wingtips, but is otherwise colored like a hawk - dingy brown with bars and spots. While her ability to carry anything heavier than a small scrap of parchment is nonexistent, she has a decent memory.
Since Brightfeather speaks a rather obscure maniraptoran dialect and a pidgin version of the general theropod language, she finds herself frequently resorting to nonverbal communication. Consequently, she's rather good at miming and shrilling to get her message across, though she prefers to use a sandbox. Brightfeather is brushing into middle age. She's still strong and fit, but not above "piggybacking" with skybax or travelling ornithomimid when getting from one place to the next. She does run message flights quite frequently, which take her far away from her pack's rookery. Brightfeather does not have a mate or hatchlings, though she adores youngsters of all stripes and sizes. (You've seen nothing unless you've seen a microraptor brooding a baby Argentinosaurus.)
Brightfeather herself is amiable and laid back. She is curious but painfully polite. She enjoys nothing so much as a cup of strong, sweet tea and a biscuit topped with a nice, juicy dragonfly.
Now for something a little different. The best dinosaur dig I've been on involves the Last Chance site in Colorado. Our Apatosaurus (we think, she's still in the ground yet) of unusually large size was named (not surprisingly) L.C., or "Elsie". Jee, paleontologists are so clever. Shut up. Anyhow, why don't I bring the big lady back for a little messing around? I'm sure she wouldn't mind. After all, I got my best training mucking around with her bones and spotting Allosaur teeth. The big gal was buried in a river, and has part of a crushed Allosaur under her... At least the leg. She was one tough old lady. We also picked a few Allosaur teeth out of her bone jam, and one sauropod tooth that probably doesn't belong to our lady. She's about half way out of the ground, so she probably still has some surprises waiting.
Species - Apatosaurus Length - 90+ ft (Again, we think.) Age - 186 Height - about 15 ft at the shoulder
Elsie is one of the caravan sauropods. She is an old hand at Basin convoys. Like most of the Rainy Basin convoy veterans, she's a little crusty, and very tough. Elsie is levelheaded and confident. Very little unnerves her. She mentors young sauropods and their riders in the ways of the convoy. While she prefers to avoid confrontations with the Basin theropods, she's capable of handling most situations. She won't hesitate to knock a rude Tyrannosaur on his tail. Her personal armor is spiky and highly adorned.
(adding another char to make my part of the RP more interesting)
Name: Highwind Species: Skybax Age: Full-grown adult, slightly older than his sister Height: About 15ft Wingspan: About 30 to 35 feet, a Gender: M
Highwind is Highsoar's elder nestmate, a few years older than her. He looks much the same as she does except for a few fighting scars. He is different from his sister in that he chooses to side with the Untamed. He has never taken a rider, unlike Highsoar. She knows he's in the area but not until now has she learned that he's taken the other side. As yet, his reasons are known only to himself however.

I'm thinking about entering a couple more characters...both human and both female. One is Emmi Laukkanen, the main character of my story "WIsh You Were Here...the other is a Skybax Rider, but I don't know if I want to have too many of those...though maybe I can play her and Croco intermittently. As for saurians, I'll have to go through my archives to pull out the more memorable ones from my on-the-spot RPs...but I will bring them along soon enough.

In case I join an RP, here's the character I'll most probably be using (possibly more details to follow).
Name: Quickstride Celeriter Species: Gallimimus bullatus Gender: Female Age: Roughly equivelent to a human in her 20s Apearance: Feathered, yellow with purple stripes, a black head crest, green eyes Location(s): Hatched and raised on Outer Island, but currently in Waterfall City Occupation: Mail carrier Language(s): Ornithomimid (Galline dialect), Standard Saurian, Dinotopian (human), and some English
Name: Anemone Windflower Species: human Gender: female Age: 17 Height: 5’2” Weight: 100 lbs Eye Color: pale greenish-gold Hair Color: frizzy, dirty blonde curls Skin Color: Caucasian Notable Marks/Scars/Etc.: freckles Clothing: a loose-fitting, spring green, Grecian tunic-dress that falls just above her knees, with light tan sandals. She wears yellow flowers in her hair, and she has round glasses. Also, though he’s not an article of clothing, her rhamphorhynchus companion likes to rest on her shoulder (and sometimes even the top of her head)
Location: makes her home in Waterfall City, but is almost always traveling Profession: reporter for the Thunder Falls Journal Hobbies: asking questions, traveling, exploring, digging up a good story Languages: common Dinotopian, English, many kinds of saurian (she has to be able to conduct interviews, after all)
Other: Ever since she was a little girl, Anemone liked to ask questions. She terrorized her family with interviews and inquiries, a notebook in hand, and when she got older, she went to Waterfall City to study the art of asking even more questions—journalism. She and Mango started a news pamphlet/literary journal based from the city called the Thunder Falls Journal, which—they claim—is the hottest paper in Dinotopia.
