Oxford Gang by Mythologist611GL Oxford Gang by Mythologist611GL
I have been through hell trying to get this done before going back to college, and I'm still not sure how it turned out. Ah well. It's done in a way.

Anyway, these are more adoptable characters for ingodzhandz.deviantart.com/. These are the Oxford Gang, one of the many mutant mercenary groups that emerged following the return of the Combines. While they have varying degrees of morality, they are completely loyal to Theobold because he saved their lives at some point in the past, as well as for more personal reasons. As such, he is the only one who can get them to do anything descent, such as smuggling resources into the underground compound, while at the same time, gently coaxing them into giving up their mercenary lives with varying results.

Their names are as followed:

Raice Elmer: The fast-talking leader of the Oxford Gang and the one who usually comes up with the plans. He had a poor relationship with his family, namely is father, in the past, which resulted in him turning to a life of crime. He prefers to see the mercenary life as an 'opportunistic business', but of course, nobody buys it. He refers to Theobold as 'Guv' (short for governor). His power is elasticity. 

Emma Winslow: A mutant with the power to turn invisible. Before the war, she was training to be a doctor but never got the chance to earn the degree. As such, she acts as the medic in the Oxford Gang. She is the most morally conscious of the group and is usually the one to keep Raice in line (apart from Theo). She holds a very cynical view about the war, and is adamant about seeing the combines' defeat as an 'if' rather than a 'when'.

Monisha Tamboli: Originally from India, Monisha's family moved to England when she was very small after it was discovered she had super-speed. They wanted her to live as a normal little girl instead of being revered as a deity. They both died in an accident when she was a teenager, causing her to live on the streets before being taken in by the Oxford Gang. Monisha is very focused and hard working in nature. She is also very spiritual, often using her religion to offer philosophical advise when people need it. Monisha wears a scarf around her face in order to conceal a nasty scar she acquired in the past (it was in the same incident that caused the Gang to meet Theo).

Noura El-Amin: A tall man of Arabic descent. Unlike the rest of the Gang, he is unable to speak, so he communicates through sign language. Only Emma is able to translate for him. His family disowned him because of said muteness, so he had been trying to make ends meet for himself before the war. Despite his size, he is a very gentle person, and is highly observant. Noura is a size-shifter, so he can make himself as tiny as a mouse or as big as a building.

And that's all for now.

You're welcome.  I hope the story doesn't get too crowded with all the characters, though.  We'll just have to write super well.

Yeah, although keep in mind that my activity on Deviant tends to be scarce. Plus I may not be a very reliable source when it comes to getting things done.

Okay, that works for me.  I still have to play all the "Half-Life" games so I won't be able to get to it for a while anyway.

Alright. Just so you know in advance, I've never did a story with somebody else before, so I don't really know how I can contribute to the story without things getting ugly between us.
