What is Descending...?

It started a little more than half a dozen years ago... Two pre-adolescent girls poured all of their time and creativity into fan characters derived from a testosterone-filled 80's anime. Established characters morphed; new beings were created; and nothing resembled the original save a few names.

It was time to branch out... aliens became demons, and these demons needed a story of their own.

The year is 2053. It is a time where demons live upon the earth amongst humans. Many demons choose to commit and encourage sin. But, a minority exists within the demonic population− a minority trying to live normal lives. For these demons making the right choices in a human dominated society is a daily trial. Especially when it seems like the rest of the world wants to destroy you.

Mapping Things Out

So, I'm a huge, major dork and spent the majority of last night flying around in satellite view on Google maps/referencing the LA Times' wonderful interactive map and deciding approximate living locations and such for the cast.  Then I discovered I site where I could actually plot that on a map for everyone to view!  Enjoy!

Worst. Christmas. Ever.

For Tyler, not Rachel and me; we had great Christmases.

Poor Ty-Ty, heart broken a few days before Christmas, but it's okay because his little sister still loves him.

Margie’s full name as the sole evidence, it isn’t difficult to guess at her family background. Margie’s parents are a prime example of country-fried Trailer Trash. With Redneck roots, Margie has struggled her way up the ladder of popularity. Ever since she moved from Kentucky in the first grade, she has clung to the pretty girls. Girls with shoes, and make-up, and tabloid gossip.

Part-way through 7th grade, her family switched trailer parks, from Santa Monica to Beverly Glen. Upon arriving at Arnaz Middle School, Margie immediately latched onto the most popular girl she could find, Alexia Woods. Alexia didn't seem to mind Margie's lack of poise. In fact, she took the twiggy girl under her wing, and they have been best friends ever since.

With Alexia at her side, Margie has made it into the inner circle. Still, she’s a ditz and naturally unsophisticated; so even amongst friends she’s seen as a wannabe.

You’ve seen him in every teenage drama – the jock, the bully, the arrogant prick who happens to be God’s gift to all women. Brad Baxter is the son of a police officer and a dentist. They raised him as a good Christian boy, and every good Christian knows that demons are evil and deserve to be vanquished. So, it’s no wonder Brad is so outwardly prejudice against hell-spawn.

Usual Brad activities include, surfing, football, track, and –last but not least – basketball. He’s the newly appointed co-captain for the varsity B-Ball team at Brad Pitt High. BPH is lucky to have him on the team, considering he should be attending Penn High in Santa Monica. The BPH athletics program´s outstanding reputation led Brad´s parents to enroll him despite the 30 minute commute every morning. It didn´t hurt that Brad´s best bud, Cooper Argento, was also attending. The two have been inseparable since they met during a summer sports camp when they were 10.

Family: Kent Baxter (Father), Caroline Baxter (Mother)

Ly possesses a child like optimism and demeanor. He’s friendly, fun-loving, and outgoing. These traits allowed him to gather a diverse group of friends as a child. Unfortunately, puberty hit and his Incubus instincts kicked in, causing him to alienate every friend he had. He’s broken hearts and caused scandals so large that his Mother has been forced (on numerous occasions) to relocate.
He’s lived all across Vietnam; parts of Thailand, China, and Japan; and now he’s transferred to Los Angeles with hopes that he can make new American friendships that will actually last.
And it isn’t only his feral nature that bars him from lasting friendships. His mother controls his every life choice under threat of using her nightmarish powers on him or any “friend” she doesn’t deem worthy of her son.
