The Melanie Spade Gang by SkunkStarlight The Melanie Spade Gang by SkunkStarlight
Better known as "The Spades", they were a short-lived but notorious gang of ruffians who enjoyed thievery and making people miserable.

The gang consisted of their hot-headed leader, Melanie Spade, her second in command, the serious Nathan King, an odd but useful fellow by the name of Quinn Chara, the infamous trickster goddess and jack of all trades, Skunk, and the excitement-loving descendant of the famous warrior Walter Guest, Jasper Guest. Their nicknames, "Ace", "King", "Queen", "Jack", and "Joker", respectively, represented their standing in the group.

This alliance was tenuous at best, as disagreements were a common occurrence. Nathan was purely business and did not approve of needless risks and activities, Quinn disliked the structured and restrictive use of plans, Skunk adamantly opposed and stood in the way of acts of excessive cruelty and harm, and Jasper was increasingly annoyed with Melanie's ego.

In time, they all went their separate ways. Ultimately, each of them were caught and punished. Nathan, Skunk, and Jasper all learned the error of their ways and turned to good, while Melanie and Quinn did not.

You think so? I published these designs last July, but took them down as they proved unpopular, and recently decided to try retooling them a bit while I was working on finally making the design for Walter Guest, since Jasper Guest is his descendant.

I'm still not entirely sure what I want to do as far as the aftermath of their falling out goes. I know that I want Melanie Spade to be one of the few irredeemable villains of the series. Don't let her small size and pink hair fool you, she has nothing but hate in her heart and has no interest in becoming good. As for Quinn Chara, he might look like a harmless goofball at times, and seem innocent enough that one might think he could be reformed, but he's a very disturbed individual who just likes hurting people for fun.

The other three, I know I want them to turn to good, and I'm currently writing a story about Skunk's fall as a spiteful villain and redemption as a remorseful and kind-hearted guardian. I've written ideas for King and Jasper, but I haven't quite decided how things will play out.
