Help Matching Animals to Powers
Anyway, when I first wrote it, I stole the ideal of talisman from the old Jackie Chan cartoon. You know, magical stones with special powers (also like Kanohi masks) with were represented by an animal emblem. Fun stuff. (That cartoon was awesome.)
So yeah, I reused the idea, but I changed it. I used different powers, and different animals to represent each power. The show used the animals of the Chinese zodiac, but I didn't want to be restricted to those ones. So I chose my own. But some my options were pretty pathetic and didn't make sense. I'm trying to come up with some better ones now.
So here are some of the powers and animal emblems that I originally envisioned:
Super Speed: Cheetah
Super Strength: Elephant
Senses: Wolf (Coincidentally, although it seems like a lame power, this was the one that got most used in the story.)
I also had Gravity as a power, which was represented by a hawk. But I since changed the power to telekinesis, although I'm keeping the hawk.
Plus, I had the power of illusions, but it was previously represented by a fish, which was stupid. I changed the animal to a chameleon, since they're more apt at camouflage, so it makes sense.
But see, I have two powers with no good animals. Previously, I had invisibility represented by a squirrel, and ghosting (phasing, walking through walls, ext) represented by a frog. How I came up with these ideas initially, I don't know. But I need better ones, and I'm drawing a blank.
So here's my question for you. What animals do you think would best represent the power of invisibility and ghosting? Comments appreciated. Thanks!!
