Name: Aim Striker
Age: Late Teenager
Breed: Border Collie
Personality: Aim, above all, is intelligent. What she lacks in brute strength, she makes up for with cunning. Her strategy skills are top-notch, and she isn’t afraid to outsmart rather than outrun her opponent. Aim acts on instinct, and she loves to think out and plan, though she doesn’t take forever to do it. She can be quick on her feet when it comes to thinking, even if her actual feet can’t run that fast. Her brother is something of the opposite, so what she can’t accomplish, he can.
Her confidence level is somewhat diminished if she can’t perform a job exactly right, and to a perfectionist like her, the smallest details matter. Aim almost always hits her target; it’s pretty much what she’s known for. When it comes to other dogs, Aim is nice enough. She does tend to snap easily and because of her low confidence level, any criticism is taken as an insult to her. She’s careful not to step on paws she knows would slash her, but she isn’t afraid to try her luck before it’s out – if you get what that means.
Because of her short temper, she can be a bit rebellious when given the opportunity, though she will stick with her mild mannered brother, Chase, at all times. Whatever he does, she’ll do – even if it means it may be the end of her. She is the voice of reason when it comes to the dynamic duo, and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind; Chase listening to it, on the other hand, is an entirely different matter. She won’t force her brother to do anything, but Aim can sometimes be a bit overbearing if she knows something is off.
History: Aim and her brother, Chase, were born in the pound because their mother had been taken in off the streets a few weeks before she was due. When they turned two months and were old enough to be weaned from their mother, the three were separated. Their mother was spayed and sent to another pound, and even a month later, the two puppies were still at the pound. Not for long, though… for they were saved by an unlikely hero.
Ever since their ears had opened, Aim and Chase had heard banging in the cell next to theirs. They didn’t know what it was, but they found out a few days after their third month of life. A tan and black dog named Adrian literally smashed out of his cell, attempting to sneak out unnoticed. Aim noticed that her brother Chase was snoozing, so she woke him up and told him to whine with her. This became the beginning of her planning personality. The two whined until the shepherd x chow mix took notice of them, and he crept towards their cell in slight irritation.
“What’s up with you two?” he asked in annoyance.
Aim pawed at the fence between them and whined again.
Adrian looked back and forth between the two pups and the reception desk, where the humans sat unknowing. He sighed deeply and broke the two out in no time, carrying both by the ruff of their coats and carrying them out. He took care of the two for a week or two, teaching them the basics of living on the streets until he told them he had to part ways with them. They didn’t take it personally since he had taught them so much beforehand, but it didn’t take long for another eye to notice their blooming talents.
Someone else, a large German Shepherd named Sliver, had noticed the two a few months after Adrian departed from the siblings. He took them in as his own, teaching them even more than Adrian ever could have. He honed their skills in, taught them to embrace their strengths, and most importantly, the brother and sister became Sliver’s top dogs in his rising power struggle. To this day, they still serve his every whim, and they are soon to fall victim to his ever persistent question: “Do you know anyone who is good enough to join us?”
