Name: Polo Teutopolis (tay-you-top-oh-less)
Species: American River Otter
Family: Polo is one of twins - he's older than his brother by 32 minutes. He lives with his brother in a three-bedroom apartment. His parents divorced when he was a child and his mother got custody. The last time he saw his father was when he was twelve years old. He gets a card with a $20 bill in it for his birthday.
Description: Polo is tall and thin, but not to the point of being lanky. His fur is medum brown with a light brown muzzle. The medium brown cuts down around his nose in sharp, thin dips. He has a birthmark: a bold, cream coloured zig-zag on the right of his neck.
His eyes are blue, and he wears black "Rivers" glasses. He also wears a beanie often, and is rarely seen without his camera and his cellphone shoved in his pockets. He dyes his hair a light blue, and keeps it short and spikey. His natural hair colour is light brown, seen in his sideburns.
Job: Photography student at art college; works full-time as a waiter in a diner.
Skill: Martial Arts - feet (kickboxing)
Name: Marco Teutopolis (tay-you-top-oh-less)
Species: American River Otter
Family: Marco is one of twins. He lives with his brother in a three-bedroom apartment. The third bedroom is taken up by Marco's computers and random tech geek paraphernalia. His parents divorced when he was young, and his mother gained custody of both children. Marco has no desire to reach out to his father.
Description: Marco is a little short and a little plump. This isn't to say that he's not fit - he'd just rather veg in front of the computer with a bag of Doritos than go run a marathon. His fur is medum brown with a light brown muzzle. He has hints of light brown markings sneaking up from his finger tips, but not strong enough to be noticed at first glance.
His hair is dyed dark green, and is cut long and shaggy, sticking up in all sorts of places, and shoved back by the pair of bright orange and green prescription goggles.
Job: Freelance computer tech junk.
Skill: Marco is not a fighter. He's the guy who sits in the van on the computer.
Name: Tuamao Fujian (tu-ah-mao fu-ree-an)
Species: Giant Panda/Asian Small-Clawed Otter hybrid
Family: Tua's father's side is the panda side - his mother's side is the otter. He has a big family on each side, but he lives in America while they're all located in China, so he rarely sees them or speaks about them. His "family" is the squad.
Description: His body is a mainly otter build, although he has the bulk of his panda genes. His fur is mostly white, except for two brown tear drop markings on his muzzle - a nod to his Asian Otter heritage. He has traditional panda markings - two black spots over his eyes, black arms and legs, as well as a black, round mark on the end of his tail and two small rings near the base of his spine. His hair is pure white, spiked into short, thick chunks. His eyes are dark brown.
Job: Coffee Shop manager
Skill: Martial Arts - fists (Kempo)
Name: Ogawa Kinjo (oh-gah-wa)
Species: Japanese River Otter
Description: Ogawa is mainly a nice caramel-y brown shade. He has a cream muzzle that slides up and frames the bottom of his eyes, and sneaks down along his neck and across his belly. He also has dark chocolate markings on all four paws and the end of his tail. Rather than fading straight into the lighter brown, his dark markings spiral up his limbs in three rings.
He has dark red hair kept relatively short and shaggy, with bangs that hang just slightly into his hazel eyes.
Job: Working at Tuamao's bagel shop.
Name: Emily Quaroni
Species: African Spotted-Necked Otter/Black-backed Jackal hybrid
Family: Emily has a younger brother named Reuben, and her family lives in Maine.
Description: Emily is what most would call a "mutt" - her species is not instantly distinguishable, having so many different species in her background. The two most prominant characteristics in her close family line are what defines her species, though if asked, she will likely just tell you she's an "otter-dog."
She has long, black hair spilling down to the middle of her back, and long sideburns of around waist length. Her ears are large and mostly canine, but are rounded on the ends. She has a cream muzzle and chest - and though her neck and chest are dappled with black spots, most often they can't be seen in normal clothing. She has a long, deep gray cape on her back and a black line straight down the middle. Her tail is long and roughly furred, and the gray cape from her back spills along it in a stripe all the way to the tip.
Job: Full-time college student; part-time student worker in library.
