FULL NAME: Isabella Mariel Swan
Unique nickname: Glass
Species (if something other than garden-variety human, include a name for your variant, in case there are multiple kinds): Human
Birthplace, including a unique name for your world that you make up: Tines, Linderwall, "Chronicle"
Birth date: 13 Yellow, 103 years after the coronation of King Kazul of the Dragons
Parents' names: Ranata Higgenbotham Swan and Charles "Charlie" Swan
Siblings?: None
The story of your life: Born in Tines, parents divorced when I was four, moved with Ranata to Phoenix, Linderwall, went to a magnet school for magic at age 12 and couldn't settle on a focus, was eventually pressured into a double focus in witchcraft and sorcery with five peripherals (combinatorial magic, theoretical wizardry, elven magic, dragon magic, and artificing) and graduated at 15, moved to the Enchanted Forest and got a cat "Cricket" and proceeded with self-study, met my wives at age 19, married them (Sherlock first) and moved into the castle, had three children
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: Sherlock and Tony, Kanim, Marianne
Significant other info: Sherlock and Tony
Enemies we should watch out for?: Orthodox wizards
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: Most kinds of Chronicle magic; I don't think I have mental opacity (and my coins don't glow). If you want an aura fast, you can dump enchanting power into the Forest at a high rate without much risk of concentration loss.
Current project: Why is this still a category at this point? What does anybell do when pealed? (I'm thinking a Rose-style approach, if that's what this is asking. NO, I AM NOT GOING TO USURP MY MOTHER-IN-LAW.)
Needs/wants?: I think I'm more of a magic geek than the rest of us, I will want to collect even relatively obscure and impractical forms that are available.
What else should your alts know about you?: I have a useful aura party trick. (Why isn't 'aura features' an entry here? I declare it an entry.)
Aura: I can see magic (without automatic interpretation like Lazarus has, but I have a lot of preexisting practice with Chronicle forms and will learn the others as fast as I can); and I can discern indistinct things about templates, attractors, what I'm loosely calling "metacausality".

The story of your life: Born in Silverbranch, grew up there unremarkably, invited along to a potential colony island as a practitioner of the small magics, encountered my beloved there. Sensed possible Bond with dragon, left due to mindreading side effects. Was notified on return from expedition that I had to bond with a dragon to save the world. Studied hyperfocus so as to be able to accomplish anything while crumbling, then did so. Dissipated over the next year and a half and then encountered Brilliance, later Kas and Petaal, in Milliways and was pealed and patched.

Significant other info: Currently none; I cannot determine whether I have a soul-sympathy with my beloved until my thoughts are more sorted out
Enemies we should watch out for?: Not presently
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: I am an Elfmage, which is apparently not trivial to duplicate by wishing. I have no mental opacity natively.
Current project: Putting myself back together.
Needs/wants?: The routine check-ins are much appreciated.
What else should your alts know about you?: I in particular do not object to being asked questions, but do not ask them myself; you may choose to treat it as a question if I announce my ignorance on a topic. Other elves will consider it rude if you ask them questions.

Current project: Well, I was trying to pull a Norman Borlaug, but pulling a Bell sounds like a much better idea now I can get at all the cool swag
Needs/wants?: Don't know yet
What else should your alts know about you?: Apparently it's unusual that I'm bisexual? Also, my notebook is a person, be nice to her.

Significant other info: Beast is my husband

Needs/wants?: After Aegis helped heal the damage to Beast's mind I am quite content

Birth date: September 13, 1987
Parents' names: Renée Higgenbotham Swan Dwyer and Charles "Charlie" Swan
Siblings?: None
The story of your life: As Stella and Golden up until the thing with the van, which killed me, and then four years later I woke up Downside in the catacombs during the reorg and got minted and stacked up with powers
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: None so far
Significant other info: None so far
Enemies we should watch out for?: See above, I don't really have a running start here
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: Nope, about as magic as dirt (maybe I'm not the template, shouldn't the template have mental opacity magic to explain why the ones who have anything have that? whatever, templatehood's the only shtick I have right now)
Current project: First I'm making inroads into all the worlds attached to Downside to make Janepoints with helpful recently-dead harmless Upsiders from each world taking me through Milliways, but after that I guess I go home and take over the world, I'll probably copy Stella's strategy
Needs/wants?: A distinguishing feature would be nice? No, seriously, I need a mint-helper, I don't come with one
What else should your alts know about you?: I'm boring, that's all.

Birthplace, including a unique name for your world that you make up: Forks, WA, United States, Earth, "Peace"
Birth date: September 13, 2155
Parents' names: Renée Higgenbotham Swan Dwyer and Charles "Charlie" Swan
Siblings?: None
The story of your life: After a few bad accidents in preschool I was fitted for my exoskeleton (military-grade assistive device pulled from the market in prototype because it can make it possible for telepaths to take over one's body, but I was safe because of my own mutation). Got into Battle School age 6, then Tactical, then Command, then defeated and received surrender of the buggers with Sue. Discovered Jane's existence. Got kidnapped in civil tussle after the war ended, got out with Jane's 'porting not long after.
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: Sue (he's a Whistle)
Significant other info: N/A
Enemies we should watch out for?: Miscellaneous political opponents I guess; no one's distinguished themselves individually yet
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: Jane's mine but I'll share. My world's tech (esp. ansibles) is also futuristic compared to most of you - jury's out on Angela's world, since her godship is centuries old and has a different design history. My mutation is immunity to telepaths, except Sue can get in if I let him.
Current project: I suppose I'll run for Hegemon and turn that into a non-empty title
Needs/wants?: I'm good!
What else should your alts know about you?: Those're the highlights.

FULL NAME: Isabella Marie Swan
Unique nickname: Juliet
Species (if something other than garden-variety human, include a name for your variant, in case there are multiple kinds): I used to be a garden-variety human but then I was activated as the Slayer, so I'm not sure if I still qualify
Birthplace, including a unique name for your world that you make up: Sunnydale, CA, United States, Earth, "Sunshine"
Birth date: September 13, 1987
Parents' names: Renée Higgenbotham Swan Dwyer and Charles "Charlie" Swan
Siblings?: None
The story of your life: Similar to Stella/Golden till 17 except substitute "Sunnydale" for "Forks". The previous Slayer bought the farm and I activated; the Watchers who are supposed to stalk me can't find me the usual way because opacity, a Power That Is visited and complained about me not getting the dreams and told me what was going on, and Sherlock filled me in on much of the rest.
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: Sherlock (I'll give him a key) and Mr. Giles, tentatively trusted Watcher (probably won't give him a key).
Significant other info: Sherlock (mine is a boy)
Enemies we should watch out for?: Non-Sherlock vampires (let's call mine Sunshine vampires, sunshine burns them) and demonic creatures of various sorts and nastier forms of witches (not Amariah's and not Golden's, let's call mine "Wiccas", I think they call themselves that sometimes) are all out to see me dead and replaced with somebody younger and stupider
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: Super-strength, super-speed, super-hackable-combat-instincts, occasional contact with The Powers That Be; the Powers have to actually talk to me instead of sending cryptic visions because they can't seem to find the interface to my brain so I think that's the mental opacity thing
Current project: Ridding the world of nasty bitey things
Needs/wants?: Better ways to rid the world of nasty bitey things
What else should your alts know about you?: I think we're covered here

Siblings?: No siblings
The story of your life: As Stella through move to Forks at 17, but instead of fucked-up magic, encountered non-anthropophagic family of vampires and some dormant werewolves, & attracted unwanted attention from secret vampire world rulers. Eloped with vampire, became vampire, had half-vampire child via frozen eggs, my plot regarding the werewolves blew up in my face and I left my daughter in my in-laws' care while my husband and I walked into an unwinnable fight and did not win. Everyone thought I was dead, everyone but the bad guys thought my husband was dead because they were keeping him prisoner for his magic. I wandered around and ran into my daughter by coincidence when she was six months old and effectively kidnapped her. When she was five, she helped me take over the world and now it's mine. (Many human governments continue to operate as a more public layer of world operation.)
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: My husband Edward, my daughter Elspeth, my sisters-in-law Alice and Rosalie (don't expect to see Edward here, though)
Significant other info: Husband, Edward Anthony Masen Cullen
Enemies we should watch out for?: My significant enemies are all dead
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: Can turn people into vampires. Various family, friends, and employees with personal "witchcraft" powers (mine is not useful to others generally, it's the mental opacity one) (let's call my sort of witches aurum witches, to contrast Amariah's)
Current project: Slowly replacing the human population of the world with various immortal alternatives
Needs/wants?: I have things under control, but offworld trinkets are potentially useful
What else should your alts know about you?: My husband is likely to find you and, if applicable, your significant other(s) disconcerting, but he doesn't generally come to Milliways

Species (if something other than garden-variety human, include a name for your variant, in case there are multiple kinds): Angel (Jovah's)
Birthplace, including a unique name for your world that you make up: The Eyrie, Bethel, Samaria ("Samaria" unless this is a bad redundancy for some reason?)
Birth date: 13 Harvestmoon, y656
Parents' names: The angel Rinnah and the mortal man Charles Swan
Siblings?: One stillborn younger (mortal) brother, no living siblings
The story of your life: Born in the Eyrie to married parents, studied mostly music and history, spent a year each assisting the Archangel Linus and the Oracle Peninnah, met Micaiah when I returned to the Eyrie
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: Micaiah is a (mortal) "alt" of "Kas" and "Alice" and I may give him a key. No one else would believe me.
Significant other info: Micaiah
Enemies we should watch out for?: I have no particular enemies (although Micaiah's father may come to qualify, depending) and any rivals I may acquire are unlikely to mistake wingless persons for me
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: I can fly, and sing for weather, seeds, or medicine. I do not know what sort of "mental opacity" might be involved here.
Current project: I am cultivating my personal virtue to have the best chance possible of becoming Archangel and improving my world
Needs/wants?: No pressing needs at this time
What else should your alts know about you?: Please do not touch my wings (although this is not as urgent as Amariah's owl seems to be?). If I come here again a chair with a cutaway back or no back at all would be useful.

FULL NAME: ISABELLA MARIE SWAN
Unique nickname: "Stella"
Species (if something other than garden-variety human, include a name for your variant, in case there are multiple kinds): Human, with all kinds of sweet add-ons
Birthplace, including a unique name for your world that you make up: Forks, WA, United States, "Eos"
Birth date: September 13, 1987
Parents' names: Renée Higgenbotham Swan Dwyer and Charles "Charlie" Swan
Siblings?: No siblings
The story of your life: Left Forks with Renée after parents divorced, summered with Charlie throughout childhood. At 17 moved to Forks full time so Renée could travel with my stepfather Phil. Encountered fucked-up magic artifact with instruction manual. Conferred fucked-up magic on my friend Alice who can use it more effectively than me, proceeded to buff self and Alice and cheat my way into college and acquire a temporary nemesis who turned out to be nice (Libby) and colonize Mars as the first outpost of the Empire of the Stars because my fucked-up magic is exceedingly powerful with a sufficiently masochistic wielder at my disposal (yay for my Alice!)
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: Alice (aforementioned), my boyfriend, alt of Amariah's Kas; Libby, my personnel officer; Mary, my helpful precognitive banker (please avoid quizzing her about how she works; Golden's precog is much more amenable to that sort of thing if you really must); Lazarus, my magic-seeing consultant-person (talk magic-geek to him, he likes it)
Significant other info: That would be Alice. He's Golden's (she hasn't found this place yet) type of vampire because those things are pretty cool and I met Golden through her daughter before this place was founded. (He will not eat you unless for some reason that appeals to you and you tell him so.)
Enemies we should watch out for?: I am not on great terms with the Alice/Kas alt "the Joker". I put him on an asteroid in his world. Please leave him there. It is probably still safe to interact with him yourself as Milliways will eject him if he is "unfriendly" and we are a psychologically resilient breed; it is probably safe to leave his alts in his company; anyone else should probably be kept away from him.
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: WISHES. COINS THAT GRANT WISHES. Ask me if you need some, I'll trade/distribute largesse! I have the mental opacity as an "ingot" power.
Current project: Stablizing and growing empire
Needs/wants?: I'm trading for future tech with Golden (it's more scalable than my magic); I'll take media and artifacts of interest too if you're from the past or a low-tech area or whatever; I don't desperately need anything because wishcoins, but if you have neat ideas for wishes to make, let me know
What else should your alts know about you?: I think that's it

Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: Significant other info: As of writing, unattached but tentatively considering Kas the aforementioned, contingent on success of project below
Enemies we should watch out for?: No enemies from home yet, but I need to practice nastier magic, give me deserving targets and I'll take 'em for you
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: Ritual magic (it's better at working with natural things, and doesn't scale up well, but I can do lots of stuff), and my birth blessing is mental opacity
Current project: Finding and acquiring an alethiometer (device that produces absolute truth from my world)
Needs/wants?: An alethiometer! But I think I have that under control
What else should your alts know about you?: DO NOT TOUCH PATH EVER EVER EVER

Species (if something other than garden-variety human, include a name for your variant, in case there are multiple kinds): Human
Birthplace, including a unique name for your world that you make up: Pearl Beach, District Four, Panem, Earth; world "Atlantis" (not worth this name yet but I'm going to fix that)

Parents' names: Ranae Swan (née Haien), Sharles "Shark" Swan
Siblings?: No siblings
The story of your life: Grew up in District 4, found Milliways age 6 and 1-2 times/yr thereafter, traded seashells for adequate nutrition and read books, faked slightly touched in the head to get away with keeping clamshells near all doors. Began work on clam boat age 8. Age 13, began being recognized as various alts and trading advice as an alt of assorted empresses for stuff. Age 16, selected in lottery for the Hunger Games (coercive gladiatorial combat of teenagers in subject Districts under totalitarian Capitol) but was replaced by a trained volunteer (she died). Age 18 (by calendar, some uncounted difference subjective), encountered Sherlock and Tony Stark in Milliways, decided to overthrow the government, faked my death by 'running away to Atlantis' for parents, stowed away on train to move in with the Starks, and later met Isabella Amariah (next entry) in Milliways and founded Belltower.
Notable friends, allies, non-uses with keys to here: Sherlock and Tony, aforementioned; Matilda, who has contagious magic and is nice about trying to infect people with it
Significant other info: Sherlock is my girlfriend
Enemies we should watch out for?: Any person from the Capitol of Panem can be considered my enemy, but Isabella Amariah is going to help me with the most pressing one
Interesting resources, and, do you have a "mental opacity" power?: I have a stick that does fire and some other small magical artifacts (generator, cornucopia, water-purifying-and-generating unicorn figurine, minor protection amulet). No native magic at all.
Current project: Overthrowing the Capitol
Needs/wants?: Any resources, particularly magical or high-tech things the Capitol cannot expect/match, are highly appreciated
What else should your alts know about you?: That's pretty much it
