"Astrology is a tool that provides a feeling of control in an otherwise uncontrollable universe. It can give definition to the star dust that makes up everything. It can shape a person's understanding of themselves, others, and the world around them. But in the end, the only thing that can define you is yourself."
Astrology school, constellations compete to become stars, each child is born of a parent constellation, Gravity Ball is football that uses the star's gravity to strategically pull the ball. Coronas is the child of a black hole, expelled like garbage. Milky Way is the principal who says she created him to protect him. There are other schools of atrology, Chinese Zodiac, uhh, others. Yeee. WIP
Overall tone: Eyeshield 11 meets Devil's Candy (the dream)
Coronas Crash lands onto campus.

Coronas is drafted into Gravity Ball team.
Coronas can't control his gravity.
Coronas wins the team's first game (fluke?)
Aries (Ram): March 21-April 19.
"The first sign of the zodiac, Aries loves to be number one. Naturally, this dynamic fire sign is no stranger to competition. Bold and ambitious, Aries dives headfirst into even the most challenging situations, and they'll make sure they always come out on top!"
Taurus (Bull): April 20-May 20.
"What sign is more likely to take a six-hour bath, followed by a luxurious Swedish massage and decadent dessert spread? Why Taurus, of course! Taurus is an earth sign represented by the bull. Like their celestial spirit animal, Taureans enjoy relaxing in serene, bucolic environments surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors."
Gemini (Twins): May 21-June 21.
"Have you ever been so busy that you wished you could clone yourself just to get everything done? That's the Gemini experience in a nutshell. Spontaneous, playful, and adorably erratic, Gemini is driven by its insatiable curiosity. Appropriately symbolized by the celestial twins, this air sign was interested in so many pursuits that it had to double itself."
Cancer (Crab): June 22-July 22.
"Represented by the crab, Cancer seamlessly weaves between the sea and shore representing Cancer’s ability to exist in both emotional and material realms. Cancers are highly intuitive and their psychic abilities manifest in tangible spaces. But, just like the hard-shelled crustaceans, this water sign is willing to do whatever it takes to protect itself emotionally. In order to get to know this sign, you're going to need to establish trust!"
Leo (Lion): July 23-August 22.
"Roll out the red carpet because Leo has arrived. Passionate, loyal, and infamously dramatic, Leo is represented by the lion and these spirited fire signs are the kings and queens of the celestial jungle. They're delighted to embrace their royal status: Vivacious, theatrical, and fiery, Leos love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate… well, themselves."
Virgo (Virgin): August 23-September 22.
"You know the expression, "if you want something done, give it to a busy person?" Well, that definitely is the Virgo anthem. Virgos are logical, practical, and systematic in their approach to life. Virgo is an earth sign historically represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture, an association that speaks to Virgo's deep-rooted presence in the material world. This earth sign is a perfectionist at heart and isn’t afraid to improve skills through diligent and consistent practice."
Libra (Balance): September 23-October 23
"Balance, harmony, and justice define Libra energy. As a cardinal air sign, Libra is represented by the scales (interestingly, the only inanimate object of the zodiac), an association that reflects Libra's fixation on establishing equilibrium. Libra is obsessed with symmetry and strives to create equilibrium in all areas of life — especially when it comes to matters of the heart."
Scorpius (Scorpion): October 24-November 21
"Elusive and mysterious, Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Scorpio is a water sign that uses emotional energy as fuel, cultivating powerful wisdom through both the physical and unseen realms. In fact, Scorpio derives its extraordinary courage from its psychic abilities, which is what makes this sign one of the most complicated, dynamic signs of the zodiac."
Sagittarius (Archer): November 22-December 21
"Oh, the places Sagittarius goes! But… actually. This fire sign knows no bounds. Represented by the archer, Sagittarians are always on a quest for knowledge. The last fire sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius launches its many pursuits like blazing arrows, chasing after geographical, intellectual, and spiritual adventures."
Capricornus (Goat): December 22-January 19
"What is the most valuable resource? For Capricorn, the answer is clear: Time. Capricorn is climbing the mountain straight to the top and knows that patience, perseverance, and dedication is the only way to scale. The last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn, is represented by the sea-goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and the tail of a fish. Accordingly, Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms."
Aquarius (Water Bearer): January 20-February 18
"Despite the "aqua" in its name, Aquarius is actually the last air sign of the zodiac. Innovative, progressive, and shamelessly revolutionary, Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign. At the end of the day, Aquarius is dedicated to making the world a better place."
Pisces (Fish): February 19-March 20
"If you looked up the word "psychic" in the dictionary, there would definitely be a picture of Pisces next to it. Pisces is the most intuitive, sensitive, and empathetic sign of the entire zodiac - and that's because it's the last of the last. As the final sign, Pisces has absorbed every lesson - the joys and the pain, the hopes and the fears - learned by all of the other signs. It's symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces' attention between fantasy and reality."

A mysterious young man who appears on the campus of... School.. This will be worked out later.
Sign: Black Hole
Body Type: Lean
Skin: Pale, perhaps bags under eyes
Eyes: Black with iridescent flakes/specks if you focus on them
Hair: Black with white streaks. Undercut has speckles, like stars, when looked into deeply.
A dedicated and hard-working crewmate. Navigator for the base. Emotionally supportive and soft spoken. Doesn't like talking about herself, and will get bashful when asked about her upbringing, but harbors dark feelings and doubt underneath her shy exterior. Quite geeky in her down-time, and will shut herself in her room to read or pick up transmissions from home (of her favorite stories). Her reason for joining the expedition to space is to flee her planet and people, to find a new beginning and live on her own terms, which she insists is living selfishly and feels guilt about.
"Everybody here is fighting for a greater cause, to save everyone. I'm just here because I'm running away."
Species: Red Panda
Body Type: Plush
Skin/Fur: Borderline pink, white, deep maroon.
Hair: Length to chin, fluffy, poofs out on sides of face (slighly shorter in the back).
Head of base operations, and right hand to the queen. Stoic, analytical, and sharp. Shows little emotion, outside of a judging eye or mild annoyance (with a hint of sass), but is overall patient with the crew. Makes tactical calls and acts as a strategist for the expedition. Pilots a bio suit, and is capable of manipulating matter, almost similar to a witch. His body was "enhanced" by experimentation, and his left eye resembles that of a hole, or portal, linked to the Slipstream (and ergo wears an eyepatch). This bio-alteration is unknown by the rest of the crew, as well as Echo's ulterior motives assigned to him by the military back on the planet. Essentially, Echo is a weapon made for war, and as he grows to love the crew, becomes deeply ashamed for it.
"We're the same. Driven by our purpose and faith. But have you stopped to think for a moment that the method you use will cause the outcome you so desire?"
Species: Albino Rabbit
Body Type: Lean
Skin/Fur: White, cyan tint, speckled gray
Hair: Neat, straight cut bangs, sharp. White with a black streak.
Abilities: The Sight, Enhancement

Spearheaded and attended by Queen Aubrey herself.
In charge of building machinery capable of space travel.
Gravity Ball Club
A congress of wealthy entities on the planet who form their own space program with the intent of destroying the slipstream to save their enterprises. Opposes Queen Aubrey's view of relocating to a new planet. Their aesthetic is a clean, sleek, militant contrast to Aubrey's hodgepodge team. More time & money to develop technology.
A fleet of spacebound individuals, whose planet has already been destroyed, seeking out the Allegiant's still-healthy planet with the intent of taking it for themselves. The crew of this massive base seem to mirror that of the Allegiant, and they flaunt some vague knowledge about the Allegiant's fate. Their leader is "Mechaubrey", an alternate-dimension version of Aubrey in which her planet has already been destroyed. In that universe, bio-altering has been developed to extreme measures, allowing this 'Aubrey' to live hundreds of years, preserving the body by intaking particles through the Slipstream, however decaying the mind.
