The NYC Officers
Origin Story: Once Akua realized she was born on Star Wars Day (May the fourth be with you) her lifelong attraction to geeky things suddenly became clear. She’d spent her early years at the Jedi Academy and later transferred to Hogwarts once she came of age. She spends an unreasonable amount of time pondering why Star Trek and Star Wars fans can’t just get along, why shrimp and tequila go together so well and if she should just give in already and get the Xbox one. Now that she’s been bitten by the radioactive cosplay spider, she plans on magically becoming a professional cosplayer – as soon as she learns to sew and masters armor-making. On a typical Friday you can find her at the edge of her bed replaying ME3 and promising she’ll make new decisions this time.
Fandoms: Star Wars, Harry Potter, Sailor Moon, GOT/ASOIAF, Mass Effect, Marvel, LOTR, Star Trek, most racing/RPG/FPS titles
Brunch Drink: 1/2 Mimosa + 1/2 Bellini…Or tequila with ice
Origin Story: Felicia’s story begins at 11 years old when her letter of acceptance to Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry arrived. She secretly wished she was British so she could take her place in Hufflepuff house, since she considered herself both just and loyal. Imagine her surprise when she was chosen by Horned Serpent house and not Pukwudkie! She could often be found visiting muggle comic book shops and going to their comic conventions, dazzling the crowds with her unbelievable cosplay, which tend to get her in trouble with the MCUSA from time to time; she once tried to bring an actual baby dragon for a Daenerys cosplay.
Fandoms: Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, GoT (not that final season though, yuck!), Batman, Marvel EVERYTHING, Death Note.
Brunch Drink: MIMOSAS and, when brunching in the magical world, butterbeer!

Origin Story: Once upon a time there was a Gryffindor that became obsessed with the magic of Disney at a very young age. Although she had wizarding magic of her own, there was something about Disney magic that hypnotized her. After exploring the world of Disney, she discovered the stars. In her journey through the galaxies, she met the great master Yoda, and learned the ways of the Jedi. The knowledge she gained throughout her years in the wizarding world, the realms of Disney, and the galaxies gave her the strength and courage to explore other universes as such Gotham, the holy war between Athena and Hades, Tokyo, Konohagakure (Hidden Leaf Village), and so many more! In her journeys, Angie tried to help all individuals she encountered. This has set her on a path of healing, she discovered her life purpose is to heal the world and protect it from evil. She will continue to explore as many realms as possible to gain all the knowledge she needs to one day help achieve world peace.
Fandoms: Harry Potter, Star Wars, Disney, Batman, Marvel, Pokemon, Wonder Woman, Sailor Moon, Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac, Death Note, Elfen Lied, Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood…just all anime.
