Today, I will provide profiles for the heroes of Excel Knights, the second title I’m writing as part of my project, God Bless the Warriors.
Whitney Isabella Waterson/Adrenaline
The team’s leader. Whitney is able run at sonic speed and fire supersonic sound waves from her fists. She is skilled in close-range combat and highly athletic. She is also seen as being breathtakingly gorgeous by other students. She has long, straight black hair, strong muscles, and a slim waste, and is always in top physical shape due to a consistently-followed exercise regimen. She is determined and sure of her ability to fight and protect others, but her determination sometimes borders on recklessness. She also has a habit of coming off as crass or impulsive, due to her bad attitude towards teachers and authority figures. In battle, she uses karate techniques in combination with her powers.
Angela Kristen “Angie” Masters/Statue
A short and thick-figured girl who is able to turn her entire body to stone. She initially hid her powers from others due to fear of prejudice, but after meeting Whitney and Valerie, she started to become more open about displaying them in public, particularly in terms of doing her share for the team. She has trendy fashion sense and sometimes wears revealing clothing. She is very friendly and enjoys group activities. She has three male friends, Jim, Jeff, and Jermaine, whom she interacts with regularly. In battle, she uses her powers to increase her physical strength tenfold and uses techniques learned from various martial arts classes.
Valerie Maria Benavides/Knives
A 12-year-old prodigy of Latina descent with the ability to turn her arms and legs into blades. Valerie skipped three grades over a course of five years and thus, has difficulty adjusting to a school environment with older classmates. Her prodigious talents have led to her becoming the top student at school and she is even considered for a Harvard scholarship. She has a napoleon complex due to being significantly shorter than most girls her age. Since she is too young to get a part-time job, she lends her services to odd jobs for spending money and initially used her powers for gardening before meeting Whitney and Angie. In battle, she uses her powers to their full extent to stand against taller enemies.
A blue-winged female warrior from the medieval-fantasy world of Arsenia who leads a resistance to liberate her world from King Draken’s tyrannical rule, and to prevent him from conquering other worlds. She is stoic and approaches every situation she faces. Upon arriving in our world, she recruits Whitney, Angie, and Valerie to help her in the war against Draken. She appears after the girls have already met and formed the Excel Knights. She seems to have some sort of connection to Draken that she refuses to reveal to the resistance. In battle, she uses her ability of flight to her advantage and also demonstrates exceptional skills in swordplay.
Edit: I have changed Angie’s last name from Avalon to Masters to avoid conflict with an existing intellectual property.
