:new: So I have these Travelling Circus Troupe characters, and the ones you see here are the literal versions of their usual characteristics.

Poupourri is usually chatty when she's not acting as a mime. But here, her voice box has been removed so she really can't talk.
Age 15
Yellow-green hair
Pink eyes

Spider is a kind travelling magician who recruits the outcasts into his show. His name refers to his many "catches". However, he's simply looking out for others. Here, he's actually part-spider, with multiple pupils and long lower canines like spider mandibles.
Spider is a travelling magician.
He gets the nickname Spider because he is always "catching" stragglers --
adolescents who have troubles in their lives and are very unhappy. He lets to
let them escape from their real lives for a short time as they help him perform
in the travelling show. He hopes they will open up and accept that they have
the power to be in charge of the show that is their lives.

Riela is a young lion-tamer whose father was killed during a circus performance, in an accident that involved stampeding animals. She tends to act tough and has a pet lion who accompanies her frequently. Here, she has uncontrollable outbursts of anger and is really hostile to anyone who approaches her.
(age 14
Amber yellow eyes
Pink hair)

Elise is a tight-rope walker. She suffered the tragic loss of her family due to illness, and is estranged from her parents. Here, she is obsessed with making things balanced, unlike how unbalanced her life is, with all the abundance of sadness. She teeters on sanity and madness, life and death, as she walks across the tight-rope.
Age: 25
Hair: lavender
Eyes: silver-grey

The twins, Ai and J'aime have always been bickering twin sisters. They had their hair stuck together in glue one day and it could not be washed out. So, a haircut needed to be done to separate the two. But since they each have a huge sense of pride and competition, neither will give in and initiate the haircut. So over the years, their hair grew longer and longer,while continuing to be stuck at the ends. Here, the twins are conjoined, so they are actually inseparable.
Age 19
Red-orange hair
Golden yellow eyes

Anton is a drummer. When he was young, he was lost in a marketplace. Already feeling fearful from not seeing his grandmother anywhere, he began running through the crowds and looked for her. He suddenly stumbled in front of a butcher, chopping up his meats, which severely frightened the young boy. And then Anton shut his eyes to the world, afraid of what he might see. Spider found Anton wandering the streets one day, with his eyes still closed. He had some mice following him, squeaking when Anton walked near an obstacle. Spider gave him a drum set so he could at least enjoy playing with something he could hear. In the troupe, Anton and his mice go through obstacles while playing the drum and with his eyes closed of course. Here, he actually has no eyes to see with.

Do Jaime and Ai really have trouble getting along? If they're conjoined together, would their fighting be much worse?
onisuu Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014
they just always get annoyed with each other, and fight for the smallest reasons, like who should open the door or who should get first choice over something like clothes or food (even though I haven't drawn them in other clothes yet, they do like shopping!)~ XD
and it's definitely a lot worse when they are conjoined~ their bickering never ends !!

This picture:…

My reaxtion: OMG<3 SO CUUUUTE<3<3

And now I look at this picture and I'm like:......................creepy.............

Why are they like that o.o? It's awesome -w-

Btw the Twins reminds me of Sakon&Ukon in Naruto because sometimes they are on th same body and sometimes the don't >w<

Haha thank you!!
For this creepy side of the characters, it's just how I imagine them when their problems are literally part of their bodies. ^^
So for jaime and ai, their problem is thier hair is glued together at the end, and they are both too stubborn to be the one to suggest cutting the hair. too much pride ahaha. They are twin sisters but don't get along with each other.
so for this side of them, I made it so they are sharing most of their body and there is not really a solution for separating them. The only solutikn is for them to have a more compatible relationship where they cooperate with each other,
