In order of appearance:
, she/her, 23 years old. Moved back in with her parents recently and works part-time at Eden’s Nursery, part-time for Mother Earth as a human ambassador of Plantae Interests. Not much going on otherwise!
ID: Violet is average height and a smallfat with tan skin. She has black hair that is a reddish brown on top. Her eyelids are always half lowered.
she/her, ~100 years old. Champion of the Ancient. Invited Violet to become an ambassador during their meet-cute. Cares deeply about Violet’s well-being but is a bit distracted. Frequently in trouble.
ID: Fern is tall and thin with light green skin. Her ‘hair’ is a fern that sweeps down in a curl in front of her face and down her neck. She has ears which split into three flat rectangles sticking out from her face. Her pointed eyes are yellow with black slits and her mouth is grinning with sharp teeth.
, she/her, 47 years old. Violet’s boss at Eden’s Nursery and Daisy’s partner. An easy laugh and good boss, as far as bosses go.
ID: Tulsi is tall and heavier set with dark skin. Her hair is in small locs past her shoulders and is pulled back with a small headband. Her ear is gauged and has another small piercing above it.
, she/they (plural). As old as life itself. Effectively the head of the Kingdom Plantae. Inhabits and speaks for the trees (and grasses and shrubs and so on).
ID: Mother Earth is an orange-brown with orange streaks running through it, taking visually after a red cedar tree in this instance. She has two of these orange streaks over her bumpy nose and her eyes are permanently closed. Her hair is made of droopy, lumpy leaves in a blueish-green.
, they/she, ~300 years old. Champion of the Beautiful. Always keeps her finger on the pulse of human fashion trends and has an extensive wardrobe. Has been known to put their social habits over any responsibilities to Mother Earth, but they’re good at talking their way out of trouble.
ID: Rose's figure is broad and plump with light green skin. Her hair is a tangled mess of darker green rose thorns. A single red rose is in the place of where their right eye would be.
, she/her. If you ask her how old she is she’ll just give you a look. Champion of the Cultivated. Enjoys working alongside humans and has brought the most ambassador recruits on board.
ID: Teff's skin is a medium brown-red with red pointed markings on her cheeks. Her eyes are yellow with darker yellow pupils. Her hair is a wheat-yellow and swoops down to her upper back. She also has a few antennae-like strands of hair coming out of her forehead and in place of eyebrows.
, she/her, ~30 years old. Champion of the Unwanted. Quite good at creating illusions, quite bad at actually fulfilling her tasks and doing what she’s told. Somehow stays out of trouble more often than Fern despite this.
ID: Barberry is mostly a small green bush with two eyes sitting in the dark under the leaves in the middle of the ‘head’. She wears a red bandana as a poncho and red high top sneakers.
, she/her, a few hundred years old. Champion of the Deep. A smug hothead who really only cares about what Teff or Mother Earth has to say. Has limited power over water manipulation.
ID: Hornwort has light blue/green skin. Instead of hair she has two tall seaweed-like antennae sprouting out of the side of her head pointing upwards. She has two ‘eyebrows’ made of plant-like ridges and dark exaggerated ‘eyelashes’ off her dot eyes, and smiles with a dark upper lip.
, she/her, ~500 years old. Champion of the Hearty. Keeps to herself and prefers to work alone, but very pleasant and tries to keep the peace between the bickering Champions. Like her title implies, can take a serious beating and has been known to use herself as a battering ram or ammunition.
ID: Jade is a short, stocky plant creature with reddish-brown skin with red “scars” up the front of her legs, arms, and stomach. She holds up her arms in fists like she’s ready to fight. Large jade plant leaves that are green with red edges cover most of her face so only a mouth is visible.
, she/he, ~2000 years old. Planter and messenger of the Grapevine. Just a tad on edge at all times, but you would be too if you were constantly being whispered the secrets of the soil.
ID: Rosemary's build is average but broad. He has light blue-green ‘skin’ with 3 rosemary leaf blades coming off of his face like an axolotl. A purple flower is growing out of her head, ‘tucked’ beneath a bandana.
, she/her, ??? years old. Palm’s scout.
ID: Burr is a short, stocky plant person with a spiky light orangish-brown head.
, she/her, 53 years old. Violet’s mom. Mid-tier executive at a Big Name Company. Loves her family but can’t help but have big expectations of her children.

, he/him, 17 years old. Violet’s brother. Keeps to himself mostly. Has Ivy school dreams much to Violet’s dismay.

, he/him, 28 years old. Ambassador in west Texas. Ranch hand, can ride a horse like nobody’s business. His easy-going personality and community standing matched with a no-nonsense work ethic makes him a hugely valuable asset to Mother Earth’s cause.
