In the near future, genetic manipulation has become a normal amongst many first world countries. Parents are able to choose the sex and even physical features of their babies before they are born, or even developed. With the genetic manipulations, parents can also choose nonhuman features to add to their children, like fox ears as oppose to human ears, tails sprouting from the tailbone, etc. However, its a rather uncommon procedure, and kids that have these mutations are usually discriminated against or bullied by purebred humans. Your character, for one reason or another, will join the school club put together for equal treatment for the unfairly labeled otherkind.
No godmodding, bunnying, or other actions that could be considered unfair to other users.

No unoriginal characters. Clones of existing characters are just as lazy as flat characters.
Posts must be longer than 1 sentence, and sentences can't be just [X looked around]

Appearance: (State otherkind features here)
My Own Characters:
Appearance: Long, light green hair. Light green eyes. About 5'8"and lanky. Small fox ears poke out of her hair, and she has a large, fluffy tail. She also has relatively sharp canine teeth.
Personality: A leader amongst most of her friends, overall outgoing and adventurous, though prone to be a little reclusive around people she crushes on.
Bio: Kris lived a relatively good life. She mostly stayed on her computer and spoke with other "Otherkind" over forums and chatboxes. She gained the reputation of being a leader both online and offline for constantly pushing ideas and growing a following on many sites, right up to the point where she was banned for "forcing otherkind thoughts onto users" though her legacy lives on most of those sites, with some of the others having shut down from the protests of her ban.
Name: ???? (Goes by Z)
Appearance: Long blue hair, going down to his waist. He has a feminine body structure and enjoys being mistaken for a girl. He's quite short for his age, being only 5'3" and has very little muscle mass. Pink eyes. A large fluffy tail, similar to Kris's, that he hides in his clothes to make himself look more feminine in places. Z's genetic changes were mutations, and not intentional by the parents.
Personality: Very shy and doesn't do much outside of her occasional outburst when someone defenseless is being picked on. Has successfully nailed a feminine voice that he uses more than his real one.
Bio: One of Kris's fans, Z frequented many of the sites that Kris did, and would follow her whenever she would get banned. They became good friends and Kris even became Z's role model, and when Z got kicked out of his house, Kris was the first one to offer her shelter. Kris is now the legal guardian of Z, after going to court with Z's abusive parents over custody, and Kris's parents not wanting the responsibility of another child.
Appearance: (Might make a drawing later) His hair is naturally light brown, but he dyed it dark blue. His hair is also medium-long, but quite long for a guy to have, and it's very fluffy. He's slightly above average height, about 5'9", and is rather slim, though still has some muscles. Usually wears black band sleeveless or t-shirts or shirts with skulls. Occasionally it's a shirt from a game he enjoys playing. Has snakebites (two lip piercings on each side of the bottom lip), a pierced eyebrow and a septum piercing (ring through the lower middle of your nose). Wears either black jeans or jeans that are a bit ripped over the legs. He wears black boots that almost reach his knees. Occasionally wears beanies to hide his otherkind features. Seth's otherkind features involve having wolf ears and a fluffy wolf tail. These features have kept his natural hair color. His teeth are also that of a wolf, as well as his nails, which are retractable.
Personality: Seth usually seems to be a bit of a downer. He doesn't talk a lot and just seems to hate everyone from a distance. Doesn't have many friends because no one really seems to attempt to talk to him.
Bio: Rumored to be a dangerous person to mess with because of his history. People avoid him for this reason.
Appearance: (http://th08.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2 ... 7t4n16.png) She's quite tiny, slightly curvy but not too curvy, she has long hair, naturally light blonde but she dyes it red, which most of the time fades out really quickly and she doesn't really care, big yellow eyes, and sharp/pointy fangs. Cute fluffy dark brown cat ears pop out of her messy wavy hair. She also has a brown cat tail that she tries to hide underneath skirts, loose pants and what not. She also has claws of a cat, but those only come out when she's triggered. With her yellow eyes, she is great at seeing in the dark.
Mostly she dresses in really loose fitting clothes and a lot of colorful layers.
Personality: Bubbly, sweet and loves to laugh and talk. Not only does she have the features of a cat, she is kinda behaving like a silly kitten sometimes. She loves to hug people, but is quite shy at times. Scared easily, but she tries to act like she isn't most of the time. OH and she is very clumsy at her times.
Bio: She's often viewed as the person who is never sad or crying, known for cheering people up. But also known for going quiet when she is asked about her past.
Appearance: Although it is mainly common for parents of otherkind to give animal-like features shortly after conception, Colin's parents were quite the eccentrics, and went all out in the process. Colin's body is ridden of cat-like features, from tails and ears, to fur, whiskers, and skin pigmentation. Though on paper, this was meant to make him appear as a cute, anthropomorphic cat from various pop-culture animations, in real life, the end result was quite unfortunate. His anthropomorphic features in real life, comes off as uncanny, and for a lack of another better word, 'disturbing' (think of the Catkind from Doctor Who, or any other live-action works featuring anthropomorphic cats).
Colin's fur is grey, with patches of brown on his tail, his left ear, and his back. He's 5'8, and skin and bone. He wears whatever is in his dresser, which tends to be pairs of jeans, and T-shirts of varying color. He uses a blue back-pack to carry his schoolwork in, and is excused by school faculty to wear a hood to cover up his appearance during school hours, despite hoods being against dress-code.
Personality: Colin is suicidally depressed. If people weren't put-off by his appearance, they would probably be put-off by his bitter attitude instead. He's very pessimistic about life, and firmly believes that he has no future. However, he's one to greatly sympathize and pity others, despite his own condition.
Bio: Colin's parents were very wealthy people. Growing up, he never got to see his parents at all, sometimes going months without seeing them. He was left with his caretakers to tend to him. To this day, Colin still doesn't know how his parents obtained such a large sum of money. By the time he turned 11, his parents lost their wealth due to unknown circumstances, and had to change their lifestyle to a modest suburban way of living. Shortly after, his mother divorced his father. His private education ceased, and was forced to be enrolled in Middle School, where the constant bullying began because of his disfigurement, both by fellow schoolmates, and occasionally even teachers.
To this day, he highly resents those who let otherkind be created. Ever since him and his parents shifted to the middle class, his father become abusive and neglectful of him. He has since despised his parents, and sometimes contemplates why they ever made the decision to make him the way he is. Since 13, he has often contemplated suicide, and has been holding it off only because of his one and only friend that he made on the internet. After discovering the school club, he stated to his friend that if it didn't work out, or if they rejected him, he would make preparations to end his own life.

Don is part Iguana. His skin is pale green and has brownish stripes on his torso and tail. His "underbelly" is very pale yellow. His vest is purple, his shirts is black, his hat is black with the weird ear/quill things being purple. His jeans are dark grey and his converse are black. The wrist band he has is brown. His eyes are green. His ears are pointed aswell. His feet are relatively long so he has a digit-grade stance.
Personality: He isn't afraid to show his otherkind features and tends to boast about his tail being articulate enough to be used as a third arm. He is very bold, but is quick to back down from fights. He enjoys video games, and likes to claim he is part dinosaur even though he isn't. He loves dogs, Great Danes in particular. He is very interested in learning about history, archaeology, and paleontology.
Bio: He was designed on his parent's request. His father was a sculpture, and his mother a well known dancer. They originally wanted their son to be part dinosaur, but unfortunately weren't able to find enough DNA from a single species to use, so instead they went with the next best thing, an Iguana. He has since grown used to using his tail like a third arm, as well as walking in a digit-grade stance.

Her shirt is grey, her pants are blue, and her shoes are red and blue. The Attack on Titan style cloak/cape thing is black. She tends to wear it to keep her arms warm. She has traits from both bats and Pangolins. Not seen here is that her ribs and pelvis can be seen through her skin, she has long toes like Don, but keeps them curled up in her shoes, and that she has Pangolin plates running down her back.
Personality: Shy, Friendly, difficult to upset, smart and artistic, into horror movies/games/media
Bio: Janette was the result of a similar mindset that resulted with Collin's weird appearance. Her parents wanted her to appear cute, but wound up with what they got. Depsite this they loved her as much as her older brother and sisters. Around the school she is often thought of as creepy due to her lang gangly arms, Pangolin style tail and being thin enough to see ribs, even by Otherkind students. Due to how much she was mocked for her appearance she became somewhat withdrawn, trying to avoid others, but is a good friend once you get to know her. Due to her wings/arms she normally has to wear sleeve-less shirts. As a result she often wears a weird cape/cloak thing( I have no clue what to call it XD) with different ones for different seasons. At this point in her life she has gotten used to the abuse other students would show her. She is capable of limited flight/gliding though rarely does.
