Synopsis: Anzeniths, an andoroid race in possesion of Heart Charms that grant them life and special powers, have congregated into a secret organization known as The Black District with a mission to kill all living humans and reconstruct them into Anzeniths that will carry out their modus operandi. Only the Source Charm, a powerful Heart Charm with unprecedented abilities, has the potential to stop The Black District and save humankind, but its wherabouts are unknown to all. Dakota Monroe, an Anzenith who is searching for the Source Charm and on the run from The Black District for rebelling against their ideals, has the power to create Heart Charms and bond them with humans, allowing them to transform and use special powers in the same manner as the Anzeniths. In the island of Northhope, four teenagers are selected by Dakota to be the custodians of four new Charms and to fight for peace as a team of fruit-themed magical girls. However, the girls are flawed misfits from different walks of life who seem to do a better job bickering amongst themselves than using their new powers to protect the human race.

Bio: Dakota first appears in the series as a guitarist for Keith’s boy band and is the catalyst for the main story. Dakota is very picky about relationships and prefers to play the long game as an off-gridder to avoid enemy discovery; however, this is a two-edged sword, giving other members of the team reason to suspect the rouge Anzenith of dubious activities. Although preoccupied with many emotional and psychological burdens, Dakota never becomes bitter or lachrymose, and is quickly established as strong, capable, manly and protective, as well as a compassionate, charming and perceptive individual who can be depended on when the chips are down. Dakota also enjoys lightheartedly teasing or flirting with other team members, especially with Wynonna. Dakota is a lover of food and isn’t above being completely self-indulgent on fitting occasions and is also a snappy dresser and slightly snarky. Ironically, Dakota isn’t very fond of technology and has a literal allergic reaction when exposed to electronic devices or Wi-Fi signals for too long.

Our last main character is Dakota, the sole remaining uncorrupted Anzenith! Since Dakota's Charm is weaker than the other's, I didn't know if that would mean an inability to transform or not, so I only did one drawing instead of having both civilian and magical forms like with the other characters. In the story's original drafts, Dakota (then named Derik) was really flat and a huge Mary Sue, so it's really neat to see how far he's come over the years :'3 I hope he'll continue to evolve into a really great, fleshed-out character

He looks like the kind of guy that would appear on a motorcycle giving a wink to the girls as he stops and takes off his helmet. ;)

Probably not. She's not the type to be taken in by a bunch of show-offs like Dakota. :D

Dakota is rather passive and prefers to just the The Orchard House girls do everything and observe them from a safe distance. The reason why is kind of a spoiler for now so I'll leave it at that!
