Character: Victor Mancha
Character Age: 16-17

Canon: When you find out that your parents are actually a group of super villains, the clear choice is to run away and try not to get caught up in their evil plans. The titular runaways are one such group, and they’ve got to stay ahead of villains and adults alike. Victor is the cyborg creation of a super villain robot that joins the group, so between staying alive and making sure that he and his friends can stay safe, he usually has his hands full.

Victor is a super hero fanboy and a nerd at heart. He genuinely enjoys helping people and is unfailingly loyal to his friends. With a bit of a sardonic sense of humor that he somehow balances with a healthy dose of idealism, Victor does his best to take care of other people and himself without causing too much damage in the process. Though he is also highly intelligent and can seem like a goody two-shoes at times, Victor is basically a normal teenage cyborg when it comes down to it.

Sample Post:

Tell us about yourself in a few words. Uh… hey, I'm Victor. My dad was the most evil, murderous robot ever built, and I'm definitely not going to end up doing the whole 'like father, like son' thing. I live with a group of kids living by the same philosophy-- we go around trying to fix things and not get sent to foster care. It's kind of like Scooby-Doo but the monsters are real.

Why are you joining our happy community? No offense, but it really looks like you guys could use the help. I mean, I usually handle C-list bad guys, but it's not like I've never fought some of the big boys too. Would you believe I've had to fight the undead before? Sort of. The undead, a guy made out of bees, aliens, the list goes on for a while. The point is, I think I can actually offer some real help around here.

What do you expect from your camp experience? Trying not to die, mostly.

Why are you a valuable asset to this camp? I can origami metal into like, anything, which comes in handy in a lot more situations than you’d think. I’m a genius with computers, and I can put up with a lot of crazy stuff without totally losing it.

What do you expect from the counselors? Adults haven't exactly been helpful in my experience, so not a whole lot. As long as nobody tries to send me to foster care when I leave, we'll be cool.

What if the crisis involved the end of the world? Please explain. Come on, when doesn't it involve the end of the world?

Do you consider yourself squeamish? Please provide an example. Not really. One time I kind of… exploded, so that was a thing. After you've basically turned inside out it’s kind of hard to feel squeamish about things.

Can you swim? Sure
- Could you still do it under extreme distress? Y/N If I really had to?
-- While dragging someone else to shore? Y/N Yeah, it’s not like I would leave somebody to drown.
--- While something, let’s say a tentacle, tries to drag you under? Y/N Just once, can we not have a body of water plus tentacle trope?
---- How would you handle that situation? Each unusual appendage situation is kind of different, isn’t it? I can’t really answer that without seeing the tentacles-- not that I’m asking to, so if it’s possible, please keep it to yourself.

Do you find these questions increasingly unnerving? Why/Why not?

Honestly, some of them are pretty up there on the Stranger Danger scale, but I’ve been yelled at by superheroes. Kind of a lot. So, unless you’ve got some zombies in spandex that’ve saved the world, you’d have to do better than this.

Character: Cho Hakkai
Series: Saiyuki / Saiyuki Reload / Saiyuki Reload Blast
Character Age: 24, as of Saiyuki Reload Blast
Job: Counselor for the Temperance of Unethical Behavior

Canon: In the world of Saiyuki, magic is magic, and science and science, and never the twain shall meet.

Except the twain totally met and resulted in something called the Minus Wave, an invisible force that caused the youkai of the world to go nuts and see their human neighbors as food. It's at this point that the Three Aspects of Buddha went, "Well, that's kind of messed up," and tasked Genjyo Sanzo, a Buddhist monk, and his three lovable misfit companions to travel to India to put a stop to this tomfoolery.

Cho Hakkai happens to be one of these misfits though you wouldn't know it at first glance, what with his almost persistent smile and sunny demeanor. On the outside, Hakkai is polite, friendly, and formal to a fault, acting as a sort of mother to the group by doing the much needed cooking, cleaning, and nagging. Naturally with these smiley-types, though, Hakkai has hidden depths; while he doesn't relish the violent life he now leads, neither does he shy away from it or despise it. Though he may speak cheerfully, at heart he's a pessimist with a really dark sense of humor. Despite the dysfunctionality of his relationships, he's extremely protective of his friends, and he only wants to do what's best for them. If that means
smiling them into submission, then so be it.

Sample Entry:

Tell us about yourself in a few words.

Ah, it does seem as though introductions are in order. Good afternoon, please call me Hakkai. As for a description of myself -- my, that's a difficult question for anyone to answer, isn't it? I find it difficult to sum myself up "in a few words," as you ask. After all, one would have to consider what information would be pertinent to one's interviewer, and what information one might consider too personal to share after a first meeting.

Moreover, one has to consider the interviewer himself. Is this person even interested in learning about the interviewee, or is it merely a formality? I'd certainly hate to be a bore! Or can this person even be trusted with such personal information, or is this merely a thinly veiled attempt at stealing one's identity? How sinister!

For the time being, we ought to talk things through and "size each other up," as they say.

Why are you joining our happy community?

Now that's an even more difficult question. Aside from the obvious, primary reason of "I'm apparently being forced to," it seems as though a few select campers here -- whose names I will not name, for the sake of privacy -- have made some poor life choices. As such, I have been given the responsibility of guiding them back onto a less harmful path. I do have some experience in these matters, so I suppose you have the right person for the job.

Do you consider yourself squeamish? Please provide an example.

I certainly wouldn't characterize myself as such. Unfortunately, my line of work places me in quite a few unsavory situations. Suffice it to say, I often find myself washing blood stains out of clothes with rather alarming frequency.

... Ah, sorry, did I just hear you say that this would be a "valuable skill"? Goodness, how interesting.

Would you be able to dispose of the flesh of the undead? How?

What a strange turn. Well, I don't see why I wouldn't be able to, assuming I'm in a condition to do so. I imagine the best course of action would be to bury said flesh as deeply as possible, so as to minimize the stench and allow nature to take its course. If there is a risk of the undead flesh coming back to "life," as it were, then the only sensible course of action is to burn it with fire. The smell may be unbearable to some, but it certainly would cut the risk of having to fend off an undead horde after it reassambles itself, wouldn't you say?

Oh my, I take it from the group of zombies shambling toward me that we've entered into the practical portion of this test? Ah well, I suppose it can't be helped. I will try to do my best~.

Character name: Jane Foster
Series: Thor (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Age: Mid 20s
Job: Camp Astrologer

Canon: Thor Odinson, Asgardian God of Thunder and Lightning, is destined to wear the crown and take over the throne after his father. But due to being pretty much an arrogant and war-hungry prick making bad decisions, a disappointed Odin instead strips Thor of his powers and rights to be ruler of Asgard and sends him into exile to Earth to learn humility. Meanwhile, Thor’s brother Loki discovers he’s not actually Odin’s true son, and in his rage he aspires to achieve the throne for himself. Thor wants to stop him, but he cannot wield his hammer or return home until he has proven his worth. While looking for a way back, he meets Jane Foster, a brilliant astrophysicist with an obsession for wormholes.

To Jane, Science comes with a capital S. It has an answer to everything and she is determined and strong willed enough to go against the advice of many to seek it even if it might pose a danger to both her and others. That includes accidentally running an Asgardian God of Thunder over with her car in her excitement to reach a site of astrophysical activity. She’d stand up, talk back and even get into more trouble if she didn’t have someone to hold her back. Not a damsel in distress and not about to acknowledge what she can’t achieve, Jane believes there will always be a way, no matter how far or hard she has to work to get there. She doesn’t dwell long on the loss of her research when it’s taken from her and decides to start over again from scratch. She’s obstinate, strong, has an independent spirit and is not adverse to thinking outside the box or accept input from other people; she considers all options around her, even from people with no knowledge in her field. She will not wait for things to happen since she'll get into action and fix things herself to the best of her abilities even if that sometimes means breaking a rule or two. She’s a (kinda) socially inept science geek, tends to ramble and go on a tangent about the subject of wormholes and science, and meeting Thor is new and strange as she’s not used to his behaviour. She’s incredibly awkward around him at first, unsure how to act, before they develop feelings for each other.

Note: ”Enstein Rosen-bridge” is another name for a black hole.


Tell us about yourself in a few words.
I’m Dr. Jane Foster, astrophysicist. That means I look at stars and search for Enstein Rosen-bridges in particular, because they’re part of my research. I guess you can call me Jane, if you want.

Why are you joining our happy community?
Joining? Ha ha, no I think you’ve got that part wrong. I’m only here to look at that anomalous particle phenomena sighting that was reported close-by. You know, the one you guys contacted me about? You sent me some really strange readings, and I’ll stay until I’ve figured out what’s going on, but that’s it.

What is your job here at CFUD? What do you think that means?
Well, first of all, I’m not an astrologer. I’m an astrophysicist. It’s not the same thing. Astrology has no real scientific basis no matter what people say. I’d stay around and explain it to you more in depth, but honestly, I have no time for it. Second... you’re making this sound like a full time job instead of a short visit.

What would you consider to be your “soul” animal and why? (this is for purely scientific purposes and will not have consequences during your stay at all. Trust us! :))
Why are you even asking me this? Astrology and science have no real connection. That’s what you mean by “soul” animal, right? Astrology is made out of random interpretations of a stars certain position to come up with a fortune of some kind that mostly just never comes true; Astrophysics means you deal with the physics of the universe, not how the position of the stars “affects” our lives, or telling people how to live their lives. I can... I can admit there’s some merit to study the stars for stuff like this, and that you can always find something to work with, I guess. But I would never rely on it to that point for myself. Unless someone proves me wrong about astronomy, I’d rather keep to real facts.

Do you think you are good in a crisis? Why?
What— why’re you asking me that? Can anyone even be good in a crisis? Of course, I’m not saying I’d just idly sit by, especially if it includes people I know about, but there’s only so much a regular person can do. It might not be much, but I would do my very best to help. That should be good enough, right?

Even when running people over by car?
That was an accident! Er... accidents. I mean, that wasn’t even a crisis, he was fine! Okay, let’s move on...

What if the crisis involved the end of the world? Please explain.
I think I’ve had my fill of that kind of thing, actually, but if it happened again, I’d... well, I guess I’d lend my hand. In the science area, I mean. I’m not a superhero, like some people.

Do you find these questions increasingly unnerving? Why/Why not?
Yes. Yes they kind of are, and I don’t see what they have to do with astrophysics? If there’s a point to all of this, please get to it.

Can you perform a flawless headshot? If not, and if your life depended on it, how many hours a week would you be willing to spend on the shooting range?
Iiii don’t use firearms, and I don’t like them much, but if my life depended on it? Sure, I’d do it as best as I could... why a headshot, though?

Would you be able to dispose of the flesh of the undead? How?
W-what? I don’t see what that has to do with a questionnaire about a camp... This is an astronomy campsite, right? Why else would you contact me? Look, I’d really like to see that anomaly of yours but if you’re not going to help me, then please point me to the closest transport back to civilization. I have work to do. Astrophysics work.

Character: Sybil Branson
Series: Downton Abbey
Character Age: 24
Job: Advocate for Camp’s Wildlife

Canon: Downton Abbey is an early 1900’s English estate where ridiculously dramatic things seem to happen all the time. The house is owned by the aristocratic Crawley family and kept in working order by their servants downstairs; it is around these two groups that the story revolves. The upstairs contingent of the household is comprised of Robert Crawley, the somewhat hapless Earl of Grantham; his American wife Cora; their three headstrong daughters Mary, Edith, and Sybil; and Robert’s mother, the indomitable Dowager Countess who is - let’s face it - the most badass member of the family. Throw in the loss of the family’s heir/Mary’s fiancée, a will-they-or-won’t-they love story between Mary and the new heir, World War I, blackmail, cancer, the Spanish Flu, a whodunit murder and/or suicide, five million other things and you’ve got a show that really puts the drama in Period Drama.

Sybil is the youngest of the Crawley daughters, and the nicest. Whereas Edith and Mary bicker and snipe at one another, Sybil always has a kind word for everyone. She is also far more liberal than the rest of her family, and much less attached to the kind of life that they treasure. This liberality leads her to do things like clandestinely help a maid to get a job as a secretary, volunteer as a nurse during World War I, or to decide that she’s going to elope with the family’s chauffeur. Just because she’s nice, however, doesn’t mean that Sybil is naïve or a pushover. She’s hard-headed in her own way, and very capable of standing up for the things she believes in, or people who are being treated unfairly. Sybil, like the rest of her family, is stubborn, but her heart is in the right place.

Sample Entry:

Tell us about yourself in a few words.
Of course. My name is Sybil Branson. I suppose I should add ‘Lady’ to the beginning of that, but that’s not really so important, is it? Not here, anyway. Mrs. Branson should do just fine for us all.

Why are you joining our happy community?
‘Happy community’ seems an odd way to put it, but I’m glad to see an attempt to keep spirits up. I’m here because I’d heard that this was a refugee camp, of sorts, and I thought I would come and offer my help. I’m trained as a nurse, and I’ve had experience working in a military hospital during the war, so I believe I can be of use. I’d also heard that there’s been an outbreak of a terrible disease affecting some of the population, and that really is something that must be fixed. In an enclosed area like yours, it could quickly spread to the rest of the refugees.

What’s your first impression of Camp?
It’s actually quite nice, and not at all what I was expecting. The housing is rather lovely, the hospital is clean and well-stocked and you even have a fountain in the center of the main area. It seems like you’ve really made an effort to provide a comfortable, pleasant atmosphere for these poor people. They all still look rather gloomy, but I don’t think you can blame them – or you – for that. After all, they’ve been ripped from their homes and that takes a good deal of getting over.

I would like to bring up an issue with you, however. Most of the refugees I’ve seen have been well-looked after. They’re the healthy ones, though. The other ones, the ones affected by the disease…they’re being treated rather horribly. Of course, you can’t house or feed them with the others, but that doesn’t mean that they should be left to wander out in the forest on their own! They’re clearly not in their right minds at all, and they need proper looking after as well.

What do you expect from the campers?
Don’t you think that ‘campers’ is too flippant a term? I understand wanting to maintain a positive atmosphere, but there’s a line between positivity and making light of the situation, and I believe you may be crossing it. In any case, I don’t expect very much from them, except that they be understanding of the difficulty their unwell members are facing. They may look grotesque, and they may act in an unusually aggressive manner, but it’s not their fault. I don’t expect everyone to actively take part in caring for them, but we should all do our best to make them as comfortable as possible.

Do you consider yourself squeamish? Please provide an example.
As I’ve said, I’ve had experience as a nurse in a military hospital. So if you’re asking whether I can handle the…unique medical conditions of your patients, then I think I can. After all, I’m no stranger to rotting flesh and missing limbs.

Would you be able to dispose of the flesh of the undead? How?
The undead? That’s rather unfeeling of you, don’t you think? As the administrators of this camp, the refugees will take their cues from you – and clearly they already do – and dehumanizing the sick is not an example you should be setting. I won’t answer your question.

Can you perform a flawless headshot? If not, and if your life depended on it, how many hours a week would you be willing to spend on the shooting range?
If you’re referring to dealing with your sick patients – and I think you must be, given the other questions you’ve asked me – then I think you’re very cruel indeed! That is not what I meant when I said that the outbreak must be fixed.

So, what’s your first impression of Camp?
I’m afraid I don’t think much of it at all, now that I’ve completed this questionnaire. Still, I won’t be driven away. Now, more than before, I think the people here need helping.
