Alias: Lightning Jr.
Height: 15 in. (38. 1 cm)
Appearance: Storm is taller than the average Pembroke Welsh Corgi, but not by much. He's lean-looking, with a red collar around his neck and deep brown eyes. Around his eyes are dark brown rings, which contrast his dark golden fur. On his head is a large tuft of orange fur, the same color as his mother's, and he's got a white stripe going down his face and around his muzzle. On the bridge of his nose, breaking through the white are a smatter of freckles that are the same color as his base fur. Low on his chest and all on his belly is light coloring, just a little lighter than his base fur. All four of his paws are white, and he's got a bushy tail to complete the look.
Any Siblings?: A baby half-sister named Avellana (the Spanish word for Hazel)
How did your parents get together?: Lightning courted Miss Dixie when she was in London with the Singin’ Strays. They realized for the moment how much they loved each other, but the feelings soon disappeared.
(Check the history )
AU you come from: Fanverse
Basic Personality: Storm is arrogant, wild, and show-offish. He's a little reckless, and not afraid to do what he can to impress and catch a lady's eye. All in all, he's a rambunctious cowboy with an arrogant streak to match. He's also got a temper, and can be a bit of a hothead sometimes.
Likes: Showing off, feeling good, when girls say ‘yes’ to him.
Dislikes: Being rejected, getting scolded, the fact that Dixie and Lightning are no longer in love, Thunderbolt, and to an extent his baby half-sister Avellana
Fears: That he’ll never see ma and pa again!
Hopes and Dreams: To one day be the best that he can possibly be! Also that his parents will one day fall in love with each other again, and that he can star alongside with Lil’ Lightning on TV.
Temperment: He likes to boast and brag to others, and he'll see really cocky and snobby to most. He can be friendly, but it takes a bit of effort to bring this out.
The Singin’ Strays, after getting discovered, proceeded to start touring all around the world. One of their tour locations, however, just happened to be in London, England, where they would have a guest spot on the Thunderbolt show. Lil’ Lightning, after getting some help, was permitted back on the show, just in time to meet their musical guest stars. Not five minutes after talking with Miss Dixie, the lead voice of the strays, Lightning had fallen positively head-over-paws in love with the dog. And on one lone night between filming, Lightning admitted his feelings to her. Dixie was a bit stunned by this, but after careful thought and looking at him, realized just how in love she was with the corgi. The two mated, Dixie left the strays, and stayed in London to be with Lightning and be in the TV show. The directors were overjoyed to see Lil' Lightning have a sassy female counterpart join him. They made the executive decision to cast both Lil' Lightning and Dixie, giving them their own spots on the show with the help of other casted canine counterparts, including Thunderbolt.
Early in the series, though, Dixie was removed temporarily from the show because of the birth of her puppies. Among them was Storm. He grew up arrogant and with an air of refinement due to the famous life. He always saw himself as somewhat "better" than his siblings, possibly because he was the eldest and boldest. And life was good for all of them on the Thunderbolt cast.
That is, until Dixie started to fall for Thunderbolt and left Lightning in the dust! Lightning was furious. He adored his son, but he was quite angered at Dixie for leaving him like that. So, he let Dixie have custody of Storm, taking him every other week. He liked going with his dad, and he loved his mother, but he didn’t like the fact that they didn’t love each other anymore or that now he had to share the spotlight with a new baby half-sister that Dixie had given birth to and Thunderbolt fathered named Avellana.
But one long day, when Storm was napping in the trailer with Lightning, he awoke in another place entirely…
Paws frantically scrambled against the floor of the forest. Where was he!? This place was crazy- like civilization hadn't touched it for years. And yet, he could pick up the scent of other animals around him, not all foreign to his nose. It made Storm feel abandoned and scared. Like… like there were ghosts or spirits or something looming around him but he just couldn’t find them! He uneasily continued on through the thicket, feeling weak and helpless.
"Gosh darn it! Where is 'vryone?" He cried, frustrated. A scowl crossed the pup's face as he sat down, ears flat against his head and small growl emitted from his throat. This just wasn’t cool! No- it wasn’t fair. Like it wasn’t fair that pa wasn’t in love with ma anymore, or that whenever he had to be with ma and… ugh, THUNDERBOLT, the focus on him was always taken away by that stupid baby!
"Ah... ah just wan'a go home!" He barked at a tree, teeth bared. But not so far from him, he could just smell everyone. People… he started to calm down. Storm thought about the scents and the sounds of civilization. Maybe…maybe there were other puppies around here! Yes, other puppies. Other puppies to brag about his grand life to...
(OOC: Yes, this is somewhat similar to his first app it's re-booted because there's more to the history, more to the sample post and he has a sister now.)
