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.

Layla Rogers
Birthday: May 4 (age 18)
Family: Father
Likes: Ballet dancing, superhero/horror movies, peacocks, singing, Greek/Norse mythology, drink mixing, journaling, TV, supernatural romance novels, her paternal family, vegan food, swimming, roses, steampunk, shopping, anime, manga, visual novels, dark music,
Similar in personality to: Rue (Princess Tutu); Fate (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha); Utau (Shugo Chara!)
Bio: Layla first appears in the series as an already established magical girl, unwittingly attacked by Cornelia and Cheryl when they mistake her for an Anzenith they’re tracking. She is the most powerful of all the main characters, although she is more comfortable with dodging enemy attacks and relies on brute force sparingly. Her philosophies are also radically different from the other girls, believing that all Anzeniths should be killed indiscriminately instead of purified and as such is disliked by Wynonna and skepticized by Dakota; but she adopts a more mainstream attitude in order to placate the rest of the team. While she has an elegant, graceful and subdued exterior, she is in reality very social, inclusive and competitive. She’s a huge otaku and a hoarder for all sorts of anime and manga merchandise, though this is a secret she reveals only to close friends. Of all the main characters, she’s the least involved in their group and participates on her own terms, but in solitude she combats Anzeniths like her life depends on it. She’s had fantasies of being in showbiz since she was in kindergarten. Like Wynonna, she’s of a non-nuclear family, and doesn’t like to talk about her mom.

tfw you realize all of the characters in the similar in personality list are all done by the same voice actress
Our fourth protag is the beautiful and sexy mysterious Layla! Secretive characters are so much fun to write, because you can include as many details about them as you want no matter how silly they are Heart La  I think she's probably my favorite of all the main characters, there's so many facets to her personality and some of her traits fly right in the face of her cool persona
She's also half-Scottish :flagofscotland:

Actually, of all the girls, Wynonna is the most anime-ish! (I based her off of Yui from K-On and Kazumi from Puella Magi Kazumi Magica) I can see Layla being the cool beauty of the group who is also a huge dork, like Rina from Mermaid Melody :D

And being the oldest of the group, she probably has had the most experience with things including the ways of being a magical girl. :nod:

She's street smart to be sure, but she definitely has a lot of learning and growing to do during her time with The Orchard House!

Right! :nod: She does look like the kind of girl who would become a breakout star. Being able to sing, dance, act, and swim can surely make her look like a princess made for fame and fortune.

She's a very busy girl, but she'd love to be able to do these things if she had the time!

It seems hard to believe that she would be into superheroes and steampunk knowing what her character is like. :D
