Character: Rouge the Bat
Age: 18
Canon: Sonic the Hedgehog
Canon Point: post-Sonic Generations

Background:

Rouge can't remember her parents. The earliest she can remember is being very young and staying at a homeless shelter of sorts. She remembers being hungry but safe, but she also remembers taking someone else's dinner and starting a pretty nasty fight before getting thrown out.

She had to live on the streets after that, stealing to stay alive. Eventually she adapted to homelessness well enough to be able to look fashionable and just "normal" despite not having a place to call home. (She didn't look shabby or disheveled, rather.) She convinced herself it was better and more interesting to stay on the move rather than be shackled to one place.

While she struggled to keep herself fed, she learned that rather than fight other people for their food, it was more efficient to steal money or something valuable to trade for it. It was very effective; once she was skilled enough to sneak into a jewel store and emerge undetected, she was never want for the necessities of life again.

One thirst she couldn't quench, however, was her desire for gems and expensive metals. When she was broke and homeless, she'd often peered through jewelry store windows in awe. It was so shiny and made the wearer so much prettier! She also saw celebrities and characters on TV wearing them so elegantly, she was positively smitten. If only she could afford to own such amazing swag.

Her proficiency in stealth allowed her to get by without being thrown in the brink, which helped her save face. She wasn't terribly popular with the people she'd fought with or stolen from. She had to switch towns quite often after people caught on and tightened their security. Once she got better, however, she stuck around. A lot of the time her targets weren't even aware they'd been ripped off until a day or more after her heist. They would sometimes install security systems, but she taught herself (after muuuuch practice and many false attempts) how to hack the common ones through fancy gizmos she'd yoink from RadioShack tech stores. You can find do-it-yourselfs on almost anything on MeTube these days.

And then she hit puberty. And grew boobs. She noticed that her new "potential" made a lot of people lower their guard. It made taking what she wanted that much easier and helped absolve her of suspicion. They also gave her more positive interaction than she'd received in a very long time. It felt good. It wasn't glamorous, but it was something. It got to the point where she acted with smug aloofness almost 24/7.

The rest can be found here.

Personality: 
Rouge is... something else. On the surface, she is purely a jewel thief who uses her feminine wiles to get what she wants. On the inside, however... well, okay, she's mostly just a jewel thief who uses her feminine wiles, but there's more to her than just sexiness, all the same.

She's flirty. It's quite clear that she likes to flirt. She doesn't just use it to schmooze her way out of tough predicaments. Though she'd never admit it, she also likes the attention. She used to have a hard time getting positive responses from people, but when she hit puberty, it became quite a bit easier. The fact that she steals from others (which doesn't earn her any points in their books) and comes off as completely self-absorbed leaves her with few to talk to and even fewer to call friends. Even sexpot bats get lonely sometimes.

She's rebellious. She hates being tied down. Prolonged periods of responsibility or expectations of politeness will drag her down to high hell. Rouge doesn't DO excessively polite or innocent. To do so would make her come across as weak in her mind. Being seen as weak to her is as bad as not being seen at all. It's actually a delicate balance she flip-flops on depending on her mood. If she's feeling particularly vulnerable, being alone would be better than risking getting mocked. When she's more stable, however, she can take any heat with a grain of salt and just enjoy the reactions she gets out of people. Again, being proved on some level to be worth cursing at is a sign she's worth something. The vulnerability thing doesn't happen often, but it does happen.

You could say Rouge is cocky. She definitely comes off as such. Is she truly that cocky, though? Yes, for the most part. Her time struggling to get by and becoming pretty capable at it made her a bit of a fan of herself. She taught herself how to fight, how to steal, and how to hack, after all. That's no small feat. (She had to if she wanted to get by the way she wanted. To beg and grovel was just not her thing.) Other schmucks would be lucky to teach themselves how to tie their own shoes, she thinks. A smidgen of it is her trying to keep an air of confidence and charm, though. It's something she picked up after seeing some ritzy ladies act that way in old 1950s movies.

For the most part, she flies by the seat of her pants. She takes life as it comes to her. While she's used to being a nomad, she's recently come to like staying in the same place and building on relationships. She's also found serving a purpose besides her own greed and survival instincts can be satisfying. She's never really thought about starting a family or having a career unless you count a career in breaking the law. A life of impulse and little pleasures is fine for her. When she got her job at G.U.N., she didn't expect to stay there forever. She doesn't expect that with any job. It's just something she'll do until she sorts out exactly what she wants, and she's in no rush to find out. It's not terribly important to her, and if she never figures it out, she won't cry over it or anything.

She's relatively fearless. Honing her skills has made almost anything she wants available to her. If she had to settle on one thing she fears, it'd be to be publicly humiliated for getting arrested and imprisoned. That would throw her image and source for positive social interaction out the window. She's grown pretty fond of positive interaction and to lose it would be in turn losing a source of confidence. If anyone asks, she tells them she's not afraid of anything. She can worry about being valued solely as a sex object and not as an actual person, too, but that's another thing she tells herself to worry about when she gets tired of the attention.


Abilities:

-Gliding. She can't quite fly, but if she gets a good breeze, she can get a decent amount of lift to get around.

-Climbing. She can climb walls, buildings, and whatnot with ease.

-Heightened sense of hearing. She can hear things from pretty far away. It also helps her with a bit of--

-Sonar. She mostly uses it to hone down on some nice gems, but she could probably put it to better use if she wanted to.

Alignment: Piphron. Rouge is flirty as a defense mechanism, for the most part. Learning to trust is going to be her biggest hurdle while she's adjusting to her new surroundings.

⌈ SAMPLE SECTION ⌉

Remember that we ask for samples that show 1) core character portrayal and 2) some use of emotions, such as environmental effect. You can also use the same sample source for both, just make sure to directly link or quote the emotion portion. We highly encourage using the Test Drive, and you can use prompts from the Test Drives, Intro Logs, and the Task board if you need them. Refer to the main application page for links and more suggestions.

 and a little more because the thread I was going to use is riddled with late night typos and inconsistencies (and I hope linking to it doesn't lean this app closer to a rejection):

Rouge walked along the sidewalk twirling her amulet between her fingers. She still wasn't too sure how it worked or how her emotions impacted this world. Her feelings weren't anything spectacular, like Sonic's sense of heroism or Knuckles' protectiveness over his precious Master Emerald. How would she really make a dent on anything here? Was it anything to worry about? Would she worry about it either way? No, she wouldn't. She knew what she wanted--in anything and everything--and she wouldn't be holding back out of fear that her deviousness would overturn a rock or something. That was just absurd.

This amulet was something else, though. It was a physical manifestation of things she had felt and was feeling. It was interesting; she could have sworn it was a more radiant shade of navy blue when she first got it. ...As radiant as navy blue could be, anyway. It was, indeed, filling up, as she'd been told it would, but it seemed to get paler the more it filled. Was that a bad thing? Again, did she even care?

As Rouge grew tired of her snowballing line of questions, she decided a change of scenery was in order. She grabbed the nearest side wall and foisted herself up to its roof. From there, she could see hundreds of people going about their daily business; some walking, some running, some stopping to
