  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD

  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD

  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM

    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.

Coppelias: Elohim
« on: January 05, 2014, 09:00:39 PM »
Elohim are the strongest and most durable of Coppelias, and usually the largest as well.  They're the slowest, owing to their size and weight, but with enough space and time they can get up to a respectable 20mph.  After the Seraphim, they're second best at electrical manipulation: the four sockets in an Eloi's back are expressly for powering whatever can be plugged in--including a Seraph's weaponry, if necessary.  Elohim have no built-in weaponry of their own, because they can pick up nearly anything around them and use it as a bludgeon.  If there's a vehicle one of them can't pick up, she can at least overturn it.

This class of Coppelia has the very best public relations, owing to their roles in disaster* relief efforts, and some excellent propaganda shots of kitten rescues.  There is an assumption among the public that their intelligence is below average, because old stereotypes die hard, and although (or perhaps because) this is nearly never the case, they're almost as successful at sensitive data collection as the Grigori.

Besides physical strength and public opinion, the Elohim also excel at teamwork, both with their fellows and with others.  This class of Coppelia experiences fewer conflicts and less tension within groups, and are thought to suffer the least number of stapling errors.

The Bertha

The earliest model, still the strongest, and nearly all of them still in use.  The shortest of this model are the height of an average man; the tallest approach eight feet with their boots on.

Think: She-Hulk, Olympe Maxime, any female bodybuilder

The Helga

Actually the newest model, the Helga has sacrificed some raw power in favor of speed and maneuverability.  She makes up the difference with the torque and leverage afforded by her wide-set hips and shoulders.  This model is approximately man-height, and has no problems with doorways.

Think: Lucy Lawless, Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Chun-Li, female Olympic swimmers

The Greta

Basically a scaled-down version of the Bertha, the better to fit into places other Elohim cannot, with all the power her frame can withstand.  Most are below average-woman height, the shortest are around four foot six.

Think: female Olympic gymnasts, female dwarves... & I'm sorry I don't know any famous women who are short and muscular  x__x;

*natural or otherwise

Just added the link back on the Coppelia page.  Thank you Ren for the love you show the Coppelia! I like the idea that Elohim compensate for their maybe scary big looks by having the best PR on their side, and their tendency to work better in teams raises interesting possibilities for someone who wants to play an Elohim.  What if a naturally disruptive and contrary person is allocated an Elohim body?  That would be a pretty terrible fit - which would make an awesome character to play :D

There would be some heavy questions for QC about why she wasn't a Cherub... and she'd get either solo duties--not so rare either--or teamed only with Cherubim until the issue could be resolved.  In the meantime, a summer movie would happen.

The Greta is built a lot like Jackie Warner. Lean, but compact.
