Who am I? Just a conscience!
Hey, howdy, hey! The name's MAGGIE, and I wished upon a star from ADS. My other imaginary friends include TRIPLETS ETC. DASH and I are so very eager to join the Worlds of Disney circle of life!
Character name: Dashiell Robert Parr
Custom title: The Dash
Why'd you pick this character? What’s not to love about rambunctious children! Dash is unpredictable fun, but with a good heart beneath.
Character appearance (try to get at least 2 or 3 sentences for each section)
Hair description: Thick, blonde hair (sandy blonde in some light and the sun), like his father’s, Dash’s is still thicker with youth. He keeps it combed back, or more just pushes it back after whatever way his mother has just combed it.
Facial description/mood/expressions: Dash has a rounded face, still retaining a lot of its baby fat, but even just angled that way and with his cheek bones. He’s often seen grinning, where he can be, or perhaps even smirking mischievously. Scowling at unfair rules is still in the toolbox too, though.
Clothing style: While blending in, Dash wears jeans, T-shirt and tennis shoes. He is most iconic (even if people can't know it's him) in his red Super-suit Edna Mode designed. Despite his clothing being his mother's department still, Dash will always pick comfort first.
Body build: Still small and slender, at Ten, Dash is yet to be done growing, but can already tell he probably won't be as tall as Violet, though maybe not as built as his father either. He packs enough muscle to deal with his super speed and really doesn't need much due to the former.
Any unique traits (optional): The one's directly tied to being a Super. Speed, Agility, Reflexes, and Combat.
Original character analysis (In your own words and please be thorough)
Dash could be said to suffer from classic middle child tendencies, but the problem isn't trying to stand out, its already doing such and having to hide it even now! Of course his innate impatience and impulsiveness have not helped any. Dash is always 'wound up'. even more so trying to fit in and lay low off his mother's orders. Cunning and resourceful, since he before couldn't use it to be the best on the field, he turned it against his teachers, pushing boundaries and reveling in never getting caught even on camera! Dash would do the same at home too and with teasing his sister or avoiding his vegetables. For all this, he is still a caring boy and very good with Jack-Jack and even defensive of Violet if any baddies actually try to harm her.
When Dashiell Robert Parr was born, his older sister, Violet, was four years old and his parents were still managing how to tell a young child they could not use their powers in a way that they would understand. Still, Vi's powers were invisibility, and not as attention grabbing (no pun) as what the young infant started displaying when he started crawling. Dash learned to deal with bumping his head because he crawled so fast, but lacked the strength to just break the wall, like his father would have, and would just giggle the incident off. He never hit the wall to hard.
Less able to be laughed off was when Helen first had to start trying to impart to her young son that he could not do that, or do anything like that in public. The young preschooler could run literal circles around all of his peers, but he wasn't allowed to do it! Or after one frantic call from the poor teacher to Helen a stop was put to it, and Dash moved to a different class.
It didn't help that when the boy would overhear his parents talking about it, Dad always seemed to side with him! See, he and Dad were right! He should just be allowed to use his powers!
This and a few more incidents like it proceeded Dash up to the Fourth Grade, though by that time, Helen had made a firmer impression on telling her son not to use his powers. Blatantly he heard. He was also not allowed to play in sports because, as his mom said, he wouldn't slow up like he said he would. Of course she was right, but Dash wasn't about to admit it!
Normal boys with pent up energy would often get sent to the office, Dash got sent to the office three times in that year, and that was only because they had to switch schools halfway through because Dad broke someone's barbecue grill. If that school's record had been counted it would have been six.
Mom of course had to tell about all this that night at dinner, though thankfully Dad sounded almost proud of Dash for not getting caught even on camera! Hard to understand adult stuff went around all of this further complication with Dash and his powers, and Vi started trying to catch a boy's attention, giving Dash further to tease her on.
Dad seemed to start to get more serious about trying at his new job, though, even coming home in better moods and teaching Dash to play catch, to his joy, though it still wasn't quite enough for all of his energy. It helped though.
When Dad disappeared though, Mom went after him, and Dash spotted a Supersuit in her bag, trying it on and sneaking with Violet onto the plane to help her. It only ended up putting them both in danger when the plane was shot down, though Vi used her force field to save them and Mom turned into a parachute. Dash himself motored them to the shore.
They took refuge in a cave, and Mom tried to impart the seriousness of the situation, telling them this wasn't like the shows they would watch and that these bad guys would kill them if given the chance. Though Dash was told for once to run as fast as he could if they came. Dash probably retained the most innocent oblivion even after all this as Mom headed off and Vi was left in charge.
Dash brushed her and her concerns aside, going to explore the cave before realizing it was a rocket! He and Violet escaped, but only to encounter bad guys in the woods, which they defeated before reuniting with their parents. Despite all the danger and drama, Dash enjoyed defeating Syndrome with his family and still viewed it all like one giant vacation, even asking from the van attached to a rocket if they were there yet.
Even though defeating Syndrome, and saving Jack-Jack after he was kidnapped, resulted in them being homeless when their home exploded, Dash was allowed to go out for sports and place second in track, which he enjoyed, also enjoying battling the Underminer with his family. It all seemed the easy and final return to being Supers, but Mom still said they were illegal.
When she went off this time to do some secret job (which got them a very cool house) and Dad was left in charge, Dash's main concerns seemed to go back to Math and watching Violet Have Adolescence, but as seemed to happen with their family, it all resulted in bad guys showing up again, though this time Jack-Jack was revealed to have powers! Which helped when all three kids were left alone and Vi and Dash bickered over who was watching Jack-Jack and who was helping save Mom and Dad. They both did both. The end result being that after this time there were more Super allies and Supers were finally made legal. Dash has gone back to balancing being a normal boy and a Super, a bit easier this time and with not having to fight being Super.
Be a Super like his parents. Be an Amazing Super. Recognition for his accomplishments. His family being safe. Finding that balance between civilian life and superhero work.
Strengths & abilities:
Super Speed and Agility are first and foremost he will tell you about, but beyond those, and his normal ten-year old boy powers, Dash is also cunning and charming, with an easy smile that can work on both his mother and teachers, though it works better on the latter. Resourceful and able to think quick as his feet in most situations. He's also adaptable, keeping his good attitude (for the most part) through quite a few moves.
Impulsive. Competitive. Reckless. Show-off. Proud bordering on Arrogant, though he gets a small handle on it after helping his family defeat Syndrome. Boundary pushing. Impatient.
Running. Sports. Competing. Heroic TV shows. Meat. His family. Being a Super. Teasing Violet. Playing with Jack-Jack. Hugs (though he won't outright say that one)
Vegetables. Losing. Math. Syndrome. All Baddies. Rules and Restrictions. Boring things. Slow things.
More things than he'll admit to. Being out of Control. True Danger. Something happening to his family. Airplane Crashes.
