My original character for Journey - Vox
He is Aven's lifelong friend. His cloak's design represents the Broken Bridge, where he first met Aven. The Ancestors watch over him, and he hopes that they will guide him once again to her.See Aven's backstory here:
Vox had already been on a couple of journeys of his own before he met Aven, his soul mate companion. His first adventure was a wonderful learning experience in which he met an extremely helpful white cloaked being like himself. The white cloak was curious about him and encouraging, offering Vox help when needed and being patient enough to allow Vox to wonder around and discover things for himself, but always staying close behind. The white cloak introduced Vox to many new things and guided him throughout their trip together. When they made it to the summit and Vox knew the end was near as the cold seeped through to his very core, the white cloak stepped in front of Vox, shielding him from the wind as best he could. Ultimately, they died on the mountain together, but Vox would never forgot the other Traveler's kindness, nor the knowledge he gained from their time together.
Vox's second journey was much less of a memorable or emotional one, as his companion, who was another red cloak like himself, did not seem interested in Vox. On the contrary, Vox's presence seemed to only irritate the other Journeyer, who appeared to want nothing to do with poor Vox. Instead of letting it get him down though, Vox went about his own thing most of the way, practicing the techniques shown to him by the white cloak and piecing together information on the past that he came across in ancient ruins and glyphs.
By the time Vox was reborn again to meet Aven, he was already quite skilled as a flyer, epsecially drop shooting out of the sky. He could tell by Aven's minimalistic cloak designs and her timid nature upon setting eyes on her that she was new to the world. Deciding to give her a greeting she would not soon forget, he swooped out of the sky, zoomed back up, and proceeded to show off some of his amazing moves before introducing himself to her.
A natural optimist, Vox is lighthearted and happy-go-lucky, which allows him to raise his companion's spirits with ease. He and Aven especially make a great fit in terms of personality, complimenting each other in all the right ways.
Upon losing Aven in Paradise, Vox decided once he was reborn again, he would make it his sole purpose to find her again and to spend as much time together as life would allow. Along his way, he's run into Verzamelaar a few times while scouting the underground, and in doing so has lost his scarf. However, Vox is resourceful and knows where to go to replenish it amongst the fish-like cloth that still swims around in the air in certain places. Though he ultimately hopes to find Aven, because of his encounters with the power-hungry Verza, he also has made it a personal endeavor to put an end to the dark Wayfarer and prevent them from hurting anyone else, especially Aven.
