alfred has a healing quirk that is almost as potent as infirmary girl. instead of kisses, he extends his hand &. rests his palm upon the injured person’s forehead. he is much sought after for this ability.
Ezor - aloof, cheerful, excellent in hand to hand combat, also has throwing knives, basically space Tai-Lee, can turn invisible, calls the lions ‘kitties’, im gay for her
Zethrid - L E M M E S M A S H (no thats not a joke she literally wants to blow everything up), ridiculous amount of strength, a bit of a hot head, basically galra Jasper, when she’s not using her fists shes got a big gun
Narti - blind, mind control powers (works at close range), has a tail that she uses in fights, very lizard like, sees world through cats eyes, doesnt speak?
Axca (or Auxia?) - gun baby, team’s head of info, seems to have the closest attachment to Lotor out of the 4, weblum galra
The Original Paladins of Voltron (excluding Alfor and Zarkon)
Gyrgan - “AM I A LEG??”, this guy would think of Hunk as his son okay
Trigel - wise, sassy, witty, awesome
Blaytz - he’s like older Lance, i shipped him with alfor for a minute, he’s also gay (did you catch that?), im also pretty sure he’s from some water based planet because he’s got gills on his neck
It’s really interesting to me that what is arguably Lance’s greatest strength is also his biggest source of insecurity.
Like, this boy is so adaptable. You can throw him into space, into a war, into a new lion, and he’ll essentially shrug his shoulders and slot himself into place. What makes the kid a powerhouse is that you can put him in any circumstance and he’ll find out where he fits and pretty much be able to hold his own there. He can integrate himself into basically any group dynamic (see: rebel mermaids, Hunk + Lance + BoM, and Team Voltron after Shiro). What Lance brings to the table is an ability to do what’s needed, to fill roles that need filling, and to mesh with anyone.
But, for someone who values standing out, that would be seen as a negative trait. Lance wants to carve out his own place in the group– it’s why he’s so attached to the idea of being the “sharpshooter” (though, that does appear to be a niche of his!!). To him, it seems like everyone else around him has this “thing” that makes them special and unique– and, since he doesn’t (or, at least, he thinks other people don’t think he does) he feels sort of average and unskilled by comparison.
The creators have said before that Lance’s character is about “providing what’s needed at the time” and like. Exactly. His “thing” is that he can essentially take on any “thing” you need him to and do it at least decently. That’s what makes him unique, and I can’t wait to see him realize it.
shoutout to the raven cycle for being one of the few series where i actually like every single character. a bunch of nerds looking for a dead welsh king? sign me the fuck up. strangely polite hitman? where have u been all my life? a villainous weird couple obsessed with their own aesthetic? double yes. magical psychic ladies, how about 💯 👌👌
“I have seen her. Walking across the courtyard from her first class this morning, her expression thoughtful, her book bag casually thrown over her shoulder. I had seen photographs, of course; I knew she wore clunky glasses and her hair in a youthful dreadlock style, that her clothes would be dynamic and colorful. I knew she would be 1.63 meters tall, that she would weigh 50kg, that she was coming away from a neurobiology class; I knew what to expect…But I was not prepared for her insouciant manner, the way she squinted and smiled up at the gathering rainclouds, aware of the gray weather in a way that the other students missed, immersed in their phones or conversations. I did not think she would kick at a pile of leaves. She walks loosely, comfortable in her skin, her face as open and expressive as Ms Hendrix’s is closed.” - from the diary of Dr. Delphine Cormier.
