emmeline marlene kvalvik — "fire with fire and you'll get burned."
— usually goes by emma or em, but by marley to her entire family. she doesn’t mind either, though she doesn’t like when friends call her marley, or family calls her emma. friends = emma, family = marley.
— born on november 29th, making her a sagittarius. loves the whole zodiacs and personalities thing, but doesn’t actually believe in it. thinks they’re hella fun though and often refers to them ironically.
— she was born in bergen, norway. her mother is actually from tacoma, washington in the united states, and her father is from stavanger, norway. the two of them met while her mother was on vacation in norway, and the two of them hit it off. she ended up moving to norway as well.
— emmeline spent the first eleven years of her life in bergen, before her and her entire family moved back to washington due to her grandmother falling ill. the transition was a bit rough for her, considering it was completely sudden and for such a stressing reason.
— her grandmother passed away the following year, however they remained in washington for her grandfather. her father ended up travelling to and from norway quite frequently for work and for family. meanwhile, emmeline struggled a bit to make friends in school.
— the passing of her grandmother really closed her up to the world, and especially to her new classmates around her. she spent most of her time with her family, or talking to her friends back in norway, she felt completely isolated in washington.
— she didn't start trying to make friends until high school, in which she was mainly forced to do so by her older brother, of whom dragged her to parties and to social gatherings. it didn't take long before his group of friends ended up becoming her friends as well.
— she still feels as though she owes her brother a lot, just for always watching out for her and making sure she didn't end up spiraling. she loves her brother more than anything in the world, and she's extremely close to him. she basically tells him anything and everything, and trusts him with all her secrets.
— your local manic pixie dream girl on the surface, always boisterous and fun, high on life, really. you can count on her to drag people out of their shells without thought on their wants, and force them to do something bold and daring with her.
— loves attention, almost practically desperate sometimes. can become needy, or clingy due to this, but she really fears being left out or forgotten. in order to prevent that, she feels the need to be front and center as much as possible.
— highkey reckless, throws herself into some bad situations due to her impulsivity. never thinks her decisions through and is quite brash. often finds herself in a situation that she almost can never get out of, but usually somehow manages to.
— usually the loudest in the room without meaning to be, but she likes being heard, and to be heard, she thinks it’s important to be loud, but that ain’t true. though she can’t recognize that herself just yet.
— goes by the motto, “you only live once,” so she’s basically trying anything and everything at least once. risks her life pretty often in order to fulfill her motto. the excitement of being daring and bold keeps her going most of the time.
— hates being told what to do, she’d rather fail and pick herself up alone than be micromanaged or anything. even so, usually finds her friends being the ones to always help her out. while she appreciates it, she still hates it.
— will add more buuuuuut i'm v tired so this is it for now!

well she wants to be a singer in the band, maybe i'll give the girl a hand and a microphone. looks like she's all alone, she can bring a friend though she's not my kind of friend, she keeps staring me out with her ol' black 'n' blue eyes. and i can take her dancing just to give the girl a chance, and i was never that good at being nice when i should, i guess that she'll forgive me right before she tries to kill me, 'cause i sold her on yesterday's come-take-me-home eyes.
FULL NAME her full name is araminta cosimi vello, with regard to her grandmother and grandfather's names, arabella and costello. 
NICKNAMES she mainly goes by arlo, but close friends tend to call her minty or ara for jokes and for simplicity's sake.
ALIAS(ES) as for aliases, fans endearingly call her blip or sticks, sticks as short for drumsticks and/or fishsticks.
DATE OF BIRTH she was born on december first, making her a sagittarius.
 
GENDER she was assigned female at birth, and continues to identify as such.
PRONOUNS she prefers she/her pronouns, but doesn't mind they/them pronouns either.
SEXUALITY she identifies as bisexual, as well as greyromantic. she rarely ever feels romantic attraction towards others, but it's not completely out of the question either.
 
PLACE OF BIRTH she was born in salvador, brazil, and spent most of her younger years there. she moved to the united states when she was about fourteen with her mother, and spent four years in san francisco, california.
RESIDENCE she currently lives in los angeles, california.
OCCUPATION(S) she is the creator and the drummer for filth! the band.
 
ALIGNMENT her alignment is neutral good.
TEMPERAMENT her temperament is sanguine.
LANGUAGE(S) SPOKEN she speaks portuguese fluently, and english quite well, though she does get tongue-tied from time to time. she sort of understands and speaks a bit of spanish, as well as italian, but nowhere near enough for a real conversation. she also knows american sign language, but that's a work in progress since she's still learning.
 
TRAITS joyful, happy-go-lucky, bright, optimistic, kind, honest, outgoing, bold, adventurous, confident, generous, diligent, charismatic, ambitious, impatient, gullible, childish, impulsive, reckless, clingy, dramatic, stubborn, indecisive, tactless, etc.
PHYSICAL HEALTH araminta is hard-of-hearing, she actually began losing her hearing in early high school when she began practicing her drums with the band more often, slowly but surely. it wasn't noticeable until they were beginning to gain momentum with the band that she got her hearing checked out and it was deteriorating. she does have hearing aids, and is learning ASL slowly in preparation for the future.
MENTAL HEALTH araminta has had ADHD since she was young, so she has it pretty "under control" by this point. by that, she is medicated and remembers to take her medication most mornings. she can never get any practice in without her medication since she gets distracted easily, and doesn't focus.
 
HEADCANNONS
— about her nicknames: actually a pescetarian, which is pretty known to her fans as well, hence the nickname fishsticks. drumsticks for the drums, not the chicken. as for blip, it was mentioned in an interview with the band once when they called her a "dot on the stage from a distance, a little blip," as a joke. and her social media handle, @stickintodrums (which she uses for all social media), is unknown to fans if it's supposed to be "stickin' to drums" or "stick into drums." everyone hopes it's the second one cause she accidentally tore/stabbed a drum in her drum set at the end of the concert once and no one wants to let her live it down.
— known for her meme-able tweets on twitter, and her cute aesthetic on instagram. oh, and you know, being the drummer of filth!, but mainly the memes. also responds to people on twitter and instagram all the time, and fans like that.
— brought an all girl band together in middle school that went by "dollz" and araminta thought they were so cool. and then they broke up because they were upset that not all of them had the same "popularity." and then brought filth! together in the united states and they've been pretty good since.
— no one ever thinks that she is a cat person, and yet, she is. she has two cats named jiji for kiki's delivery service, and haku for spirited away. she loves them both with all her heart even though she's pretty sure they don't feel the same way.
— always drumming, the type to drum with her fingers during conversations or just hanging around. loves coming up with new, random beats, always has her eyes on the prize. she loves music, and pushes herself really hard when it comes to the drums. it takes a toll on her, though, when she feels stagnant or uncreative, as if she's letting herself and all her bandmates down.
— not really sure how to feel about the fame. she's proud of them for having accomplished so much, and for making music that not only they want to share, but that people love. and yet, she never expected for them to be in the spotlight so much. it overwhelms her, even if she's not the most recognised person in the band, so she can't imagine being the frontwoman.
— loves meeting fans, but always tries to keep all eyes off of her. values her privacy more than ever now that they're known everywhere. however, is also the type to invite fans to get coffee or something and chat whenever she has the time.
— wants to make a difference with the kind of voice and platform that she has, but doesn't exactly know how to go about it quite yet. so for the time being, she settles for sharing her thoughts and memes and funny events in her life.

YOU SHOWED ME ( LOVE ) , GLORY FROM ABOVE.
AND I'VE NEVER LOVED A DARKER BLUE THAN THE DARKNESS I HAVE ( KNOWN ) IN YOU, OWN FROM YOU. YOU, WHOSE HEART WOULD SING OF ANARCHY, YOU WOULD LAUGH AT MEANINGS, GUARANTEES, SO BEAUTIFULLY. WHEN OUR TRUTH IS BURNED FROM HISTORY BY THOSE WHO FIGURED ( JUSTICE ) IN FOND MEMORY, WITNESS ME. LIKE FIRE WEEPING FROM A CEDAR TREE, KNOW THAT MY L O V E WOULD BURN WITH ME, WE'LL LIVE ETERNALLY.
FULL NAME his full name is helios achilles leventis.
NICKNAME(S) he mainly goes by helios, however helio or elio are quite common as well.
ALIAS(ES) he doesn't exactly have any aliases, but people have come to coin him as cripple. which, while not endearing, is what he's known as since he hasn't made any efforts yet as to come up with a better hero name to leak.
DATE OF BIRTH he was born on november fourteenth, making him a scorpio.
 
GENDER he was assigned male at birth and continues to identify as masculine.
PRONOUNS helios prefers masculine pronouns (he/him/his), however he doesn't mind neutral pronouns either (they/them/their).
SEXUALITY helios is bisexual, as well as biromantic, though he does have a preference for men.
 
PLACE OF BIRTH helios was born in thessaloniki, greece. however, he moved to the bronx, new york at a very young age in order to seek medical treatment.
RESIDENCE he now currently resides in queens, new york.
OCCUPATION(S) helios freelance writes, often coming up with slogans or whatnot for companies. he's also currently in the process of writing a novel, so writing freelance helps him stay afloat, along with working at a local cafe during the day.
 
ALIGNMENT his alignment is true neutral.
TEMPERAMENT his temperament is melancholic.
LANGUAGE(S) SPOKEN helios speaks greek and english fluently. he got to learn greek from his family, and due to moving to the united states at a young age, english came quite easily for him as well.
 
TRAITS distrusting, stand-offish, cold, reserved, cautious, detached, subtle, cynical, private, ambivalent, introverted, independent, analytical, intelligent, perceptive, thoughtful, loyal, patient, understanding, protective, reliable, etc.
PHYSICAL HEALTH helios has a prosthetic right leg and left foot, having had to remove the leg and foot when he was about six in attempts to prevent the cancer from spreading. he suffers from migraines rather often as a side affect of the use of his power.
MENTAL HEALTH he does struggle with insomnia, something he didn't have before the strenuous use of his powers. however, now that he has been using his powers more frequently, insomnia seems to have developed. and whenever he does manage to get some rest, he struggles with night terrors, though this is unbeknownst as to whether they are from his powers or otherwise.
 
HEADCANNONS
— he had a form of bone cancer as a child, osteosarcoma, and moved to the united states for an extremely new form of treatment. it had actually been banned due to very unstable results. survival rates were low, however those that did survive made miraculous recoveries. family had a friend in the medical black market and they talked up this treatment, so helios was encouraged to get it.
— at first, his parents knew not to trust the friend in the united states. even after helios had to get his leg amputated, they stayed strong. the cancer seemed to only be present in his leg and foot, and after they were surgically removed, helios showed signs of improvement.
— not for long, however. it turned out that the cancer had already spread to his lungs without the doctors' detection. with this, helios' chances of survival dropped significantly. they attempted with chemotherapy, but after a couple months of treatment, it didn't serve to resolve much. with not much time and hope left, they left for the united states out of desperation.
— helios underwent treatment as soon as he arrived in new york city. he was taking extremely high dosages of medication, as well as undergoing chemotherapy once again at a janky underground hospital. like promised, he got better extremely quickly. the cancer seemingly went into remission within a couple months, though some odd side effects began developing.
— it first started with him being able to manipulate shadows slightly, or at least, he began to realize that they would flicker whenever he noticed them. however, it continued to escalate despite having finished with chemotherapy and treatment. it seemed as though the mixture of chemotherapy with the unresearched drug allowed him advanced abilities.
— a hardiness against injury, some increased physical strength and agility, it was a parent's dream, really. at least, until the ability to manipulate shadows and darkness manifested at the cost of his mental health. as he began developing his newfound abilities, he couldn't exactly hide the night terrors.
— doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong, despite the intense examinations and experiments. ultimately, his parents opted to keep the doctors from helios. he was a commodity in the science world, and it no longer was their interest to treat him, but rather, to dissect him.
— his parents taught him to try and keep his powers under wraps growing up, so he's never actually openly done harm or good with them as he grew up. helios remained a bystander for a majority of his life until he moved out on his own.
— he witnessed someone getting mugged one night and he ended up helping the person out. although a good deed, it didn't exactly sit right with helios either. it still felt wrong, like a betrayal to his parents, almost, for all they had done in attempts of keeping him safe.
— the battle between him and his powers tbc.
— he's the type to avoid the spotlight. he's not a fan of being the center of attention, nor of being the talk of the town. he's quite introverted and prefers to keep to himself. it stems from keeping his powers hidden, as well as his own opinions on the matter, and therefore, it's another reason as to why he doesn't exactly want to come out as this big superhero either.
— very distrusting? helios keeps his friends closest, forget enemies. he only shares what he wants to, and everything else is for his own knowledge only. he doesn't exactly enjoy letting people into his life, but if he does, it's a big deal for him. he's extremely loyal and protective of friends and family, everyone else can go fuck themselves.
— has very, very little control over his powers, in all honesty. he barely knows the extent of his capabilities, cause he knows he has them, but as for what they do? he's not exactly sure. everything that happens is basically a stroke of luck, but he does know that his powers have something to do with darkness and shadows.
— beats around the bush, and never exactly says what's on his mind properly. he's not honest with his feelings or opinions, and prefers to kind of avoid the truth if it'll keep the peace, so to speak.
— the annoying type of person who doesn't exactly know what he wants, but doesn't have any ideas of it. the type that rejects suggestions, but can't come up with any ideas himself most of the time.
— loves new york with all his heart, despite the dirt and the grime sometimes where he lives. he has a pitbull puppy named olive and he loves her with his entire being.
