365 Marvel Comics Paper Cut-Out SuperHeroes - One Hero, Every Day, All Year…
Supporting Character Supplemental - Reader & Foray
The Inhuman adventurer known only as Reader originated from the secluded Inhuman settlement of Orolan deep in rural Greenland. Unlike their cousins from Attilan, the Inhumans of Orolan were much more sparing in subjecting their children to the mutagenic properties of the Terrigen Mist. Only a selected handful were put through Terrigenesis so to provide warriors to safeguard their isolation.
Young Reader was one such Inhuman yet his transformation bore unexpected results. Terrigenesis bestowed him a type of reality manipulation wherein he can manifest into being anything he reads. Following an incident where the young Inhuman read about fire and accidentally burned his home down, the elders of Orolan deemed the youth and his powers far too dangerous. As a result, the lad’s eyes were burned out with a hot iron and he was banished from the settlement, sent out into the wild to die.
Yet young Reader did not die, rater he survived and taught himself to read brail. He had a series of brail tiles constructed for himself through which he could activate a variety of different powers. These powers have included the ability to teleport over vast distances, freeze time, and even instantly kill a given target. Reader additionally befriended a dog named Foray and made a brail tile that enables him to see through Foray’s eyes.
Reader went on to become a renown tracker, mercenary and explorer. He has loaned his services to the likes of The Ennilux Corporation, The Inhumans of New Attilan and the law firm of Mathew Murdock.
The inhuman hero and his intrepid dog first appeared in the pages of Inhuman #4 (2014).

Content Warnings and Character Info under the cut!
Content Warnings (CW):
I would like to start off by stating I felt these were very important things to CW since these are all very real things that happened/still happen but I am not very knowledgeable about some of these topics so I apologize for my ignorance! As a bipoc person who is very white-passing and was shielded from these things by my white mother, I apologize if I handle any of these topics poorly. I am very open to any feedback so please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Racism, mentions of slavery, and something slavery-esque? This world has two main races - humans and demons. And just like our world, holds a lot of racism. Specifically towards the demons. While slavery isn’t legal in a majority of the locations in Foray, it will be mentioned. This world also deals with Charges (a person or thing entrusted to the care of someone else) and in the context of Foray - is Humans taking on Demon charges. Those who take on charges namely do it to protect demons they are close to but unfortunately, there are those who abuse the system.
Tattoos that could be seen as branding? This world is one of magic - and uses tattoos as a way to form/show bonds. The people in this world use them to show relationships - whether that be who you are related to, who you are married to, who you are close to (found family) or in the case of why this is a CW - Humans and Demons getting matching tattoos to show whose charge you are. I would like to state though that both parties are getting these tattoos and that there are laws (though people do find loopholes) around the age of consent and that both parties need to agree to getting them.
Something akin to sun-down towns? So. They are sun-down towns. In less populated areas some of the towns refuse to service/help/house demons. They aren’t mentioned often after the first few chapters - but they do exist in this world.
Less jarring CWs: fantasy violence, mention of sex/sexual themes, suicidality, alcohol, PTSD and related symptoms, etc…(more will probably be added)
The Characters (this one has so many I apologize):
Tamril Dawnstar - Our unfortunate MC who just wants a nap. A 16-year-old kid *cough* demon *cough* whose been tossed around from caretaker to caretaker cause his sister is off doing who-knows-what and he eventually fell into the care of the McLeod brothers.
Cyan McLeod - Oldest of the main group, at the ripe old age of 26. Depressed alcoholic who is a bit (very) eccentric - and also the heir to a multi-billion dollar company? Or at least the equivalent of that in this world.
Aaron Tyr - The 19-year-old half-demon under Cyan’s care. Used to be a prostitute until he tried to seduce Cyan and Cyan was just like “You are wayyyy too young - but I can offer you something more stable?”.
Carter Klassen/McLeod - 20-year-old adoptive sibling to Cyan. Comes across as rude but it’s cause he’s an awkward fuck who has zero social skills (Has he been with the McLeod’s since he was 7? Yes. Has he learned anything? No)
Cecelia “Cici” - Previous caretaker to Tamril, but currently lives in this world’s equivalent of a sun-down town (she doesn’t like it, but she’s a traveling apothecary and this town needed help). Pops in often to check up on Tamril (no one knows how seeing as she lives days away - maybe it has to do with the fact she’s demon-touched?). 24 years old. Has vitiligo.
Iva - Cici’s lifelong partner! She tends to be the type to overwork herself helping whatever town she and Cici live in. Doesn’t talk much, mostly because she’s just very tired. 25 years old.
Vidalia “Prince” DeStone - Royalty–a demon-touched enby who is paralyzed from the waist down. They work to advocate for demons and those touched by them, and don’t take anyone’s shit. Especially not Cyan’s. 23 years old.
Vu - Prince’s personal guard and lifelong partner. She is from a demonic race similar to orcs, making her larger in stature and very strong. 23 years old.
Serrure - A blind man who can see visions of the future. He comes from an island of people like him, but as it is, he’s isolated. He is devoted to Mina, for better or worse (mostly worse). 22 years old.
Mina - A woman with no care for others, actively enjoying causing chaos and ruin in the lives of others. Cyan is her favorite target. 25 years old.
Sterling McLeod - Cyan’s, and by extension, Carter’s, cousin. He was supposed to be the heir, but decided to follow his passion for medicine and become a doctor instead. He works within the McLeod estate. 27 years old.
Lakita Wafalls - Cyan’s ex-fiancee who never got over the breakup. Currently, she also wants to ruin Cyan in a desperate bid for attention. 25 years old.
