            Hey, remember that time when you thought to yourself, "Hmmm, the AF is full of too many of the same characters. Where are the people over 20? Where are the drunks? Where are the people with terminal illnesses and the transgender folk? Where are the tattooed guys and the freckles and the cripples and the androgynous Egyptians?"

            In answer to your question, they're right here, in The Censor Bar, waiting for your gifted hand to craft their likeness onto paper, or into your screens.

            This is a very relaxed thread, full of friendly people and a cast of characters of which you can talk to and role play with if you so desire. If you wish to know more about any of the OCs listed, feel free to just ask to speak with them, and they'll tell you whatever it is you wish to know (Except that Richard guy, because he's shady).

            Special Notice: Halloween is coming up! For extra brownie points, draw one of our OCs in a costume!

            Full name: Alexander Moretti
            Nickname(s): Alex
            Gender: Male
            Age: 34
            Zodiac: Taurus
            Occupation: Bookshop owner by day, smut romance novelist by night
            Eye color: Dark blue
            Hair length & style: Jaw length, shaggy, black
            Height: 6' 4"
            Body Type: Tall and muscular

            Orientation: Fluid
            Notable: He has DID (multiple personality disorder) and wears reading glasses when writing and reading. Always has a bit of carefully groomed stubble.

            Some Background: Alex was raised in Italy with his emotionally absent father and his psychotic mother. There, he was enrolled in fancy private schools, receiving an excellent education, but his grades faltered due to his developing mental illness caused by his home situation. At age twenty, he left Italy for England, and there found himself a home. He got published as a romance novelist, and found his calling. He ran around, quite content, indulging in booze and one night stands, until one of those one night stands ended up being a man who he wound up trusting and loving. Joel. He eventually asked him to move in with him, and they were quite happy until one of his personalities took over and tried to kill himself, leaving Joel afraid and incapable of staying with him any longer. Alex, now alone, is deeply depressed and drinks himself to sleep in fear of his own body betraying him again.

            Likes: Fancy cigarettes, expensive booze, sunflowers, the American Civil War, Gone with the Wind, looking at nature, cooking

            Dislikes: Inconsistency, instability, ugly things, being uncomfortable, small spaces, his parents, being proven wrong

            Full name: Nassor Khalid Kandeer
            Nickname: Victor
            Gender: Male
            Age: 28
            Zodiac: Capricorn
            Occupation: Barista
            Eye color: Hazel
            Hair length & style: Down to his shoulder blades, kinky and dark brown, sometimes up in long, beaded braids
            Height: 5' 7"
            Body Type: Very thin and willowy
            Race: Egyptian
            Orientation: Reluctant (Pansexual)
            Notable: He has two black ankh tattoos on his shoulders, and neat little scarification marks creating a pattern on his upper back. He also has Cystic Fibrosis, a respiratory disease that causes the mucus in his body to thicken, making it hard for him to breathe and lending a hand to all sorts of other nasty ailments. He's expected to expire at latest in his thirties.
            He also owns a long-haired Siamese cat named Pascal.

            Some Background: Victor was born and raised in Egypt, where he was constantly watched by his family due to his illness. His father, being a man in the military, moved their family to Germany, then Russia, and when Victor became eighteen, he moved to France and lived on his own for a while. Later in life, he moved to England to settle down and live a quiet life of relative solitude until the end of his time. Even after moving away from his family, though, he could never really shake the feeling of eyes watching him, so he's a very nervous spirit. He also dabbles in the occult and puts his faith in a myriad of practices, hoping that something will come along that will actually work, for even though he has his moments of nihlism, he's really a rather quiet optimist. He's often seen with herbs and jewels that he thinks will help with something.

            Likes: Magic, ancient cultures, teas from around the world, coffee, sweets (huge sweet tooth), reading, poetry

            Dislikes: Bland food, hospital visits, when he's feeling particularly shitty, the fact that he's so different, his imminent early expiration, big crowds, loud events

            Full name: Richard Reider (Heinrich Reider)
            Gender: Male
            Age: 28
            Zodiac: Pisces
            Occupation: Tattoo artist
            Eye color: Light blue
            Hair length & style: Straight blond hair, down to his chin on the right side, shaved on the other.
            Height: 6'9"
            Body Type: Freakishly tall, gawky, with broad shoulders and a small waist and long, lanky limbs
            Race: Caucasian (German)
            Orientation: Fluid
            Notable: The most obvious feature of Richard's, after his height, is his odd face, featuring a large, beak-like nose, large, puppy eyes, and razor sharp cheek bones. Both of his ears' cartiledges are pierced, and he has several tattoos. One of a flock of birds in silhouette flying up the inside of his right arm, and on the other, wrapped around his elbow, is the phrase, "I promise." He has one large sleeve tattoo featuring brightly colored fish and rushing water. On the left side of his chest, framing where one puts their hand to feel their heart, are two quotation marks. Both of his nipples and his p***s are pierced.

            Some Background: Richard was a quiet, awkward, artistic child whose father completely ignored him in favor of his older brother, who was strong and athletic and handsome and did incredibly in school. Feeling outcast, hopeless, and alone, Richard ran away from home at sixteen and became homeless. He quickly fell deep into a spiral of drug abuse and shady dealings to earn money, until at twenty one he was taken in by a tattoo artist and fellow drug-addict. He was housed and became the man's understudy until he passed away due to an overdose. Homeless again, his sister Julia came to his rescue and got him cleaned up, pushed him into rehab, and helped him get back up on his feet so he could make his own living. He moved to England with his sister later, to return the favor and give her moral support for her transition surgery, and there he met Sage, his current partner.

            Likes: Painting, sketching, poetry, fantasy novels, English 80's goth music played very loudly, body modification, water (lakes, oceans, bathtubs), tart/sour foods

            Dislikes: The feeling of being judged, punk a** kids, being pushed to do anything, having to put too much trust in any one or thing, people he loves being in any trouble, no matter how minute, his mood stabilizer medication

            Full name: Julia Reider
            Gender: Female (MtF)
            Age: 26
            Zodiac: Aries
            Occupation: Barista
            Eye color: Blue
            Hair length & style: Naturally shoulder length, straight and a soft blond, but often wears extensions and wigs to have long, waving, luxurious hair that's varying shades of blond
            Height: 6'3"
            Body Type: Broad shoulders, with average sized breasts (for her size) and small hips, and a strong body with no bulging muscles.

            Orientation: Straight (but open to whoever comes her way and impresses her enough)

            Some Background: Julia was born a boy named Johanne, and in her youth, lived as a happy, energetic, and very athletic little boy. Over time, though, she began to realize that something didn't seem quite right, and as she aged, her school mates began to harass her about being "girly" and "faggy" and she quickly dropped from being one of the more popular kids in her class to being at the bottom, along with her big brother Richard. But unlike her brother, her optimism kept her head above water until she finished high school. She put off college to save money for her operation, and in the meantime moved a few towns away and bought herself an apartment in a very LGBTQ area, where she joined a drag club and made many friends. Now, after saving up the money, she's moved to England to get far away from her family, and has gotten top and bottom surgery, and has her new boyfriend Liam taking care of her while she recovers.

            Likes: Dressing up in costumes, performing, being pampered, lilies, handsome men with adorable accents who whisper sweet nothings to her, having friends she can go out with or stay in with and eat junk food with

            Dislikes: Being referred to as a transwoman instead of a woman, being treated like a child, having to take things too seriously, bullying, being forced to act a certain way, being thought of as unintelligent because of her sunny personality
