Updates will be slow due to the detail and my need to write at least eight lines on a character. Also, don't expect anything positive from her.

NAME NATASHA ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I'D LIKE TO SEE YOU by OPERATION: CLIFF CLAVIN
QUOTE SOURCE: "I HATE YOU TO THE END AND I HATE YOUR MOM AND DAD."
"She's irritating and obviously doesn't do anything. There's very little to comment about, because she barely needs a personality in order for everyone to like her. Personally, I don't understand the appeal. Move on."
Aile absolutely despises Natasha. It's unsure when she began harboring such strong feelings of dislike towards her, but at some point she obviously began to be annoyed by her personality. She envies and despises Natasha, and has formed something that at least borders on a rivalry with the other commander. She is especially spiteful about her marriage, and often labels Natasha as 'undeserving' of anything in order to boost her sense of self-worth. She will take every possible chance to silently criticize her and seems to have a deep grudge against the female despite barely speaking to her. She seems to possess no respect for her at all, and obviously just doesn't have anything nice to say about her.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL Following the amount of development that they've gone through, I'm impressed by the progress Pendulum has made with their personality. They're scarcely out of character and have a distinct personality. Them and Aile are probably the most likely to start world war three between themselves, and I expect them to become very antagonistic towards each other eventually.
NAME LAPIS LAZULI ★ ★ ★ ★
I DON'T CARE ANYMORE by PHIL COLLINS
QUOTE SOURCE: "YOU WON'T CATCH ME CRYING COS I JUST CAN'T WIN."
"She keeps herself out of the way. She's quiet and doesn't openly seek attention. She hasn't said much, so I've barely paid attention to her."
As suggested, Aile hasn't formed a steady opinion on Lapis. She has scarcely heard Lapis talk, apart from during the lockdown plot and the water spar. However, she doesn't care whether Lapis is present or not because she doesn't consider her powerful or even minorly useful. She's incredibly neutral towards her, although she can summon up a negative or two. She could probably pick Lapis for water-related tasks, but otherwise doesn't value her. Despite noticing Lapis, she doesn't pay much attention to her because she recognizes that she's difficult to read. Overall, she doesn't care about the female and wouldn't mind having to kill her or watch her die.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I can definitely see the original Lapis Lazuli sprinkled into her character, although I believe she needs a small push in order to stand out completely. Which I know Tag will be able to accomplish. Contrary to everyone's claims, I don't think Lapis and Aile will be good friends. I mainly just expect them to ignore each other for the rest of their lives.
NAME WHITEKIT ★ ★ ★ ★
RUDE by MAGIC
QUOTE SOURCE: "WHY YOU GOTTA BE SO RUDE, DON'T YOU KNOW I'M HUMAN?"
"Whitekit. He's rude. Otherwise, I barely care."
She hasn't really encountered Whitekit, but she simply considers him rude and would probably be willing to beat a lesson into him if no one else does. Due to his age, she possesses no respect towards him and considers him a nuisance that she has to deal with, which will cause her to look down on him constantly until he grows up. She is relatively neutral with him, but has still formed pessimistic opinions on him.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I'm loving Whitekit's presence around the clan so far. In my mind, he's the bratty kid that still knows a thing or two. I also appreciate youth who are practically born rude. He's a sinnamon roll. I feel like Aile and him will eventually clash, comparing her cold honesty with his generally insulting words. Almost a rivalry.
NAME CIRCUSCLOWN ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I * HATE YOU by GODSMACK
QUOTE SOURCE: "DON'T EVER LOOK MY WAY, DON'T EVER THINK I'M PLAYIN."
"He's the leader. I'll obey him and serve him. He's simply a disappointing leader."
As his subordinate, Aile will take orders from Circusclown and mostly respect his authority, although she doesn't really respect him as an individual more than her leader. She despises his displays of affection towards family, and felt the closest thing she'd ever felt to pleasure when she discovered that he and Leo were divorced. Despite being loyal to him, she doubts his capabilities and doesn't understand why someone of his personality is being entrusted with such an important personality. The one thing she appreciates about him is that he's strong and not afraid to put his power to use. She can respect those who assert themselves. She's even wary of them, knowing that she'll probably never beat him.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL Who doesn't love Circusclown. He switches between being comedic relief and an extremely serious and badass leader. The contrast is beautifully executed and it's difficult to criticize his design. I doubt that him and Aile will ever get along, since their differences are far too great. But I feel like they could become acquaintances eventually now that Circusclown is the leader.
NAME BROKENRECORD ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
YOU MAKE ME SICK by DEVILSDRIVER
QUOTE SOURCE: "IRREVERENT AND FULL OF WANTS AT THE FOUNDATION."
"Brokenrecord needs to be quiet and learn when to open her mouth. It'd be appreciated if she simply left the clan for good. She's already a traitor."
Don't let her cold words fool you. Aile's opinions are deeper than simply considering Brokenrecord a traitor. Brokenrecord is a blood relation of hers, being the daughter of her half-sibling, but she seems to feel a small amount of guilt and wariness around her because of her parentage. Despite disliking Brokenrecord, Aile seems almost upset by her entire existence, since she has been shown to despise all members of her family. However, she also feels slightly responsible for her at times, since she's aware that Brokenrecord's mother won't be there for her. Despite this tiny amount of sympathy, it's not enough to influence her actions and it is far outweighed by her bitterness. She hates the other member and even sometimes perceives her as Lunae herself due to her violent nature.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL Personally, I appreciate how developed Brokenrecord is and the amount of depth her personality has. Everything makes sense, and she's rarely ever out of character. She fits the ideal type of personality for an Exiler, but not in a stereotypical way. For potential...well, the entire family relationship is rocky. So even if they hate each other now, I expect that they'll only grow to hate each other more. Especially if Broken discovers Aile's relation to her.
NAME DYSTOPIA ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
CALLING ALL THE MONSTERS by CHINA ANNE MCCLAIN
QUOTE SOURCE: "YOU STAYED IN TOO LATE TO BE GETTING AFRAID."
"Dystopia is my fellow commander. If I have to work with her, I will. Why we're forced to work together is a mystery, but I'll do as I'm ordered."
She hates Dystopia. It's not even fully because of her personality. It's because she hates her partner, Natasha. Despite them technically being partners, Aile has shown no interest in becoming acquainted with her or even initiating conversation. she does slightly respect Dystopia for her combat prowess, but still seems unimpressed by many of her results in several areas such as flight. She is dissatisfied with working alongside Dystopia and probably wants one of them to move out of the position, whether it's her or Dystopia.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I feel like Dystopia is a good character to have around, since she acts as one of the most aggressive characters without actually acting completely insane most of the time. I enjoy seeing her around. I don't feel like her and Dystopia will get along unless Aile's personality completely changes, but they might learn to work together eventually.
NAME LITTLEKIT ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
BULLET WITH YOUR NAME by SCARS OF LIFE
QUOTE SOURCE: "YOU SAY YOU'RE THE VICTIM, I SAY YOU'RE FULL OF *."
"He needs to shut up and stop complaining about her family disaster. No one particularly cares for people who whine without pause.
Aile despises Littlekit, and it's not just because Littekit complains a lot. It's because she complains about his father, who Aile was romantically interested in. Aile took her anger out on Littlekit very briefly, mainly because that she felt frustrated that she wouldn't allow herself to be sad about his passing. Ever since, her and Littlekit seem to have low opinions on each other, despite not saying a word to each other afterwards. Aile barely needs a reason to hate her. She simply does, mainly out of jealousy and bitterness.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL Ah, I haven't seen much of Littlekit, but I've liked what I've seen of him! I can't give a distinct opinion on him, but his personality stands out enough and I think he'll turn out to be a good character. I think these two only have the potential to be extremely bitter enemies, judging by their first encounters.
NAME RICK GRIMES ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★★ ★ ★ ★ [abbr=decent, not close]★[/abbr] ★ ★
I'M SO SICK by FLYLEAF
QUOTE SOURCE: "SINK INTO MY CLOTHES, THIS INVASION MAKES ME WORTHLESS."
"He's dead. There's no point in speaking about him. Don't waste my time."
Despite the leader being dead, he was the first clanmate she actually wanted to be with, although she forced herself to keep away from him out of wariness due to past events. She was crushing on him and often grew jealous of anyone else who he valued, showing a heavily dislikeable attitude towards his family and friends out of resentment. She wasn't aware of his feelings toward her, but always drove him away whenever possible, doing her best to keep him distanced from her. She probably regrets it, but would never admit to being so solemn about his passing. She often lied to herself and was determined to not love him, treating him coldly and shrugging away his attempts at interaction rapidly.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL Rest in peace Rick. You were loved. Rick was a well-developed and unique character that I'm sure everyone is anticipating the arrival of. Personally I loved him and the way he was portrayed. It's a shame that him and Aile are unlikely to ever end up in a relationship or even as friends, and I think they'll probably stay cold neutrals or even forced enemies eventually.
NAME WILLIAM BONDENO ★ ★ ★ ★
NIGHTMARE by AVENGED SEVENFOLD
QUOTE SOURCE: "MEN LIKE YOU HAVE SUCH EASY SOULS TO STEAL."
"William isn't someone I know well. I'm not interested either. I don't have anything to say.
She doesn't know him well and to be frank Aile barely cares about him. He just seems like another bland presence in the clan, which she doesn't appreciate. She has seen him sparring Lapis Lazuli, but otherwise doesn't know much about his skill in combat. Her opinions towards him are mainly neutral, but she currently believes that William is more than slightly useless. She'd call him a 'typical Exiler', although this isn't necessarily the truth.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I have only seen a bit of William, but I think that he's managed well. At first his personality gave me low expectations for him, but as I saw him more I grew to appreciate him. I don't think Aile will ever grow to appreciate them, but unless he deliberately irritates her they should be able to remain on neutral terms.
NAME CORRUPTTIMELINES ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ [abbr=decent, not close]★[/abbr] ★
BEEKEEPER by KEATON HENSON
QUOTE SOURCE: "THE DEVIL'S GOT NOTHING ON ME, I JUST WANT TO BE ALONE."
"He's decent. At least he actually knows how to do his job. Everyone else should stop interfering."
She does have a certain amount of respect for him, since he's proven himself useful and sensible. However, as this is the case with almost everyone, Aile does envy him. She has seen him with several friends and family members, and is disappointed that he'd 'waste' his time on them in addition to being bitter about his relationship with his clanmates. She doesn't always appreciate his field of expertise, but admits that he does well at what he does. He's also quite stable, and she has rarely seen him be violent. She doesn't consider him extremely significant, but he's probably the closest she'd consider as 'decent' among the current ranks of the Exiles.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL Arg, Corrupt is like a breath of fresh air among the chaos. He stands out because of his more passive but still involved personality, and I feel like his personality still fits into the clan well. There's a very slight chance of him and Aile befriending each other, but only slight. I feel like they're more likely to either stay neutrals or eventually grow to dislike each other.
NAME TWILIGHTPOISON ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
DISTRUST by AEVERIUM
QUOTE SOURCE: "CRITICIZE, COMPROMISE AND READ BETWEEN THE LINES."
"Her loyalty is wavering. She spends too much time showing concern for her family. I do not trust her. No one should."
Aile has noticed her apparent affection towards Lirim, which causes her to distrust Twil and expect her to become a traitor. She lacks any respect for the female since in most situations she's only seen her with her father, which makes her opinions on Twil extremely negative. She has nothing positive to say and envies her strong relationship with her father, while also convincing herself that she doesn't care about it. She hasn't interacted with Twilightpoison much if at all, so her opinion is still developing.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I don't know much about Twil, but she seems like a decent and relatively in-depth character. I can't say much since I haven't seen her around and haven't had Aile interact with her. However, from what I've observed, their personalities would definitely clash due to Aile's disdain and bitterness probably clashing with Twil's lack of 'potential'. At worst, I see them being very strong enemies. I can't imagine them ever growing to tolerate each other.
NAME AYA CIPHER ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
SALLY GOT A ONE-TRACK MIND by DIAMOND D & THE PSYCHOTIC NEUROTICS
QUOTE SOURCE: "HER LIFESTYLES FOUL, SEE HER AT THE CLUBS SIPPING A DRINK"
"She's a wreck of a person who has been defiled several times. I have no respect for her ways. There's only one thing I know her for."
Like most members, Aile is aware of how keen Aya is on love and sex, and is disgusted by this. Being on the opposite end of the spectrum, Aile often looks down on Aya and doesn't appreciate her. She regards the female in question as disgusting and can't find any respect for her. There's nothing she likes about Aya, since almost every time she's seen Aya she's done something indecent. Aile certainly isn't keen on her.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I feel like Aya deserves to be acknowledged for more than just being the clan's 'professional slut', regardless of Aile's opinions. She's a more charismatic character than that and interesting outside of her affairs. I doubt her and Aile will ever get along, since their opinions are very different. They're more likely to clash over their views on decency.
NAME CONFINEDKIT ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
FIREFLIES by OWL CITY
QUOTE SOURCE: "YOU'D THINK ME RUDE BUT I WOULD JUST STAND AND STARE"
"Confinedkit. I barely know him. I barely care about him. He's just another useless burden who may or mayn't grow into someone useful."
As far as Aile is currently concerned, Confinedkit is plainly useless to her and because of this she barely takes notice of him. She tends to judge him harshly because of his age, and labels him as useless. The only thing she truly appreciates about him is that unlike several of his age, he doesn't tend to interfere whenever she sees him. Because of this, she respects him slightly more than she does most others of his age. Despite this, she still doesn't like him.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I'm probably hella biased because Zeriah, but I love Confinedkit's contrasting personality. Partially a relatively nice person and partially a complete asshole. Correct if I'm wrong about that, but that's what I've seen. For potential, I can't see them as friends in the near future. Maybe just vague enemies? I can imagine them having a round of 'don't touch me', since they're both either haphephobic or just dislike being touched.
NAME MORBIDREALITIES ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
CRYBABY by MELANIE MARTINEZ
QUOTE SOURCE: "CRY BABY, CRY BABY; SO YOU LAUGH THROUGH YOUR TEARS"
"She's my subordinate. She doesn't know her place nor deserve it. She has never done anything except irritate me and prove problematic."
She hates Morbidrealities and would really like to be rid of her. She considers her pathetic and irritating, constantly placing Morbi beneath herself partially to boost her self-esteem and partially just because they don't get along well. She has formed something close to a rivalry with Morbi and feels the need to surpass her in every way she deems necessary. She also envies Morbi, perhaps more so than anyone else. She doesn't understand how she even has friends and often feels especially irritated by the concern others show for her. She has very low opinions on the master of warfare. She only has a very vague sense of respect for her skill in combat.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I'm different from Aile. I adore Morbi. Her personality is complex and works very well, and she's very distinct and recognizable. I think you bully her a lot, but that's often a good thing. [maybe do something nice though xD]. For potential...definitely arch-enemies/rivals. I can imagine that these two are eventually going to start world war three a hundred times over. They just clash so much. I'd love to work with them together more.
NAME REIKI ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
NOBODY'S HOME by AVRIL LAVIGNE
QUOTE SOURCE: "THAT'S WHERE SHE LIES; BROKEN WITH NOWHERE TO GO"
"Reiki? Deathstroke's captive? I don't care. He barely counts as a member. He's simply someone's pet. It's unfortunate for him that he ended up with Deathstroke."
She doesn't know Reiki well. But since he begun his time as an Exiler by being captured and held prisoner by Deathstroke, Aile doesn't and probably never will trust Reiki. She mostly just ignores him, but will always dislike him for his origins and her suspicions that his loyalty isn't to the Exiles. She doesn't consider him useful either, so he's pretty much someone she doesn't respect even slightly. She'd have even lower opinions on him if she was aware of his high sex drive.
OOC OPINION + POTENTIAL I haven't seen Reiki a lot, but I actually love him? He's just such a rough and harsh-mannered character who seems like he belongs to the Exiles, even though he is technically a captive. I consider him the big sinnamon roll who probably needs a hug. I'm really into characters like him. For potential, probably enemies. She'd never befriend an ex-Scarclanner willingly. But enemies is always fine. I can even imagine them as arch-enemies.
