Hi, my name is Kain Ringer. I am the author of a couple of Mass Effect fanfictions posted on my DA profile, but I'm here to say that my OCs from my fanfiction "The Reapers' Vengeance" (which is the original) are allowed to be used here in the Mass Effect High group as characters for anyone's "school days" fanfictions.
I do have some rules:
1) Personalities and soldier classifications must stay as they are. Just note me for soldier classifications.
2) Clothes, jewelry, and accessories (such as watches, or bowties), may be changed around, including colors.
3) Official pairings may or may not be used; that will be under regard of the author of the "school days" fanfiction.
4) If you wish to change something very drastic, such as basic stats (height, weight, etc), please run it by me, at least so that I know.
I made this decision when I began working on my "Operation Celtic" fanfiction, which is based around the characters from "The Reapers' Vengeance" from the year 2199*. Starting long before anyone has joined (as per "The Reapers' Vengeance") the Azure Dawn mercenary group, "Operation Celtic" will continue on to just before the beginning of "The Reapers' Vengeance".
As a final note, I cannot draw (whatsoever) turias or krogan, and asari may give me a difficult time due to the formations of the tendrils that substitute "hair".
I wish everyone who would like to use my Mass Effect OCs good luck with incorporating them into a fanfiction, and I hope to see some good stories associated with them as well.
*Quick side note: I decided when I began writing "The Reapers' Vengeance" that I'd play off of the idea that it would take the Reapers a lot longer than originally estimated to arrive at Earth, which gave way to another story. With this, it took the Reapers around 25-30 years to arrive in the Milky Way from Dark Space, which is MUCH longer than the canon 6 months from the actual game.
