Alright SF fans, I need some help....

Over the past few months there's been a lot of neat developments going on in the fandom. Not too long ago I came up with a silly idea explaining Krystal's existence in the series and the reasons for James' absence. It was a ridiculous idea that was only harbored by some more savage emotions. (I believe DZC might remember my idea :P)

Now, however, this silly little idea has exploded into a cosmos of possibility. I'm undertaking the task of working on a fanfiction now that will flip everything you thought you knew about the StarFox series and flip it on it's head. Not only that, but one of the most astounding parts of this, will be that I'm going to -keep it canon-!!! I'm still surprised it's even possible myself, but so far there is no canon evidence to contradict my ideas (the fiction will operate more on 'absence' of evidence rather than 'support' by evidence.)

In order to accomplish this task, however, I need all the help I can get. I've been around long enough to compile a solid foundation of what is and isn't canon, and with the help of the likes of DZC, I can accumulate a fairly good system of deciding whether something is or isn't generally canon. What I -need- is for you all to give me some info. Don't tell me if it's canon, I just need -facts-. I've never been much of a Krystal fan, but she's going to be a major character in this fiction, so I need to know as much about her as possible.

As more things come up I'll likely revisit this and ask for more, but for now, can you all help me with anything we know for a -fact- about Krystal? Anything from past history, what happened to Cerinia, her looks, eye color, etc is desired. I expect most things will work themselves out here so I won't end up with much stuff that isn't supported by everyone, but I may reference everything to some more resources later.

If you wish to know more, feel free to PM me or ask in the thread, I just didn't want to start out revealing everything unless people wanted to know, just know that it will be very disturbing, it will stay in the realms of possibility within the series, and it will change your views of the characters, forever XD Thanks all!

Nice to hear from you again Andrew.

It's not easy to write a story, and then call it "canon". Many people have tought over what we didn't see in any of the games many times before and made up their own opinions about how things were.

I fully understand what you want with it tough. I'm trying to do the excact same thing with the backstory of another Starfox character(not really a big secret who.).

To work with what little information we have and try to fill in the gaps in the best possible way.

Hoping to make it good enough that some of the readers might actually go: "Yeah, that doesn't sound to unlikely. Why shouldn't it be this that happened?"

There is very little we actually know about Krystal. But there are a lot of bright people here with lots of good theories. And I'm sure they would be more than willing to share them with you.

Best of luck with your project.

Thanks ^.^

My goal with this is to take everything we know about the series, and then twist what could have happened behind the scenes to such an extent that people shudder at the thought, but keep it within the realm of possibility to give it that little extra scary kick. Not planning on using any original characters, just very basic generic roles and the roles of those canon characters we know. The most difficult part will be capturing the personalities of the characters to an extent that makes them all believeable in the minds of the fans. That's the key ingredient. No matter how great my ideas are they will fall apart quickly without the realism of the character designs.

I'll tell you all the basic information I know about Krystal from an official/canon source. During the events of Star Fox Adventures, Krystal's planet was destroyed, her parents were murdered and her race was entirely wiped out except for her, the sole survivor of the tragedy that struck. Backstory aside, Krystal has telepathic abilities that render her able to read anyone's mind and serve the Star Fox team. Although she can be stubborn at times and  can sometimes make respond rashly to percieved wrongdoing against her, Krystal is actually quite kind and will go out of her way to reach out to and assist someone in need.

Best of luck to ya', kid!  :wink:

As for canon, don't use ANYTHING related to that dreadful Star Fox Command, since none of that is declared/considered canon (thank God!).

Ahaha, no siree. I'm only using SF64, Adventures, and Assault.

And most of the story will stay away from the actual StarFox team. I'm not using any original characters (despite the generic ones required). I'll be focusing on General Pepper, Andross, James, and Krystal. Also, I'll be focusing on the origins of the Lylat War, and why, perhaps, Cerinia was destroyed, and how that led to Krystal meeting StarFox in the first place.

I have the first 4 pages done, and I must say, I'm very happy with it thus far. The story will take a while before it gets to Krystal, but in due time, I'm sure.

Do we know exactly what happened to Cerinia or who did it? I recall hearing it was the work of Andross, but that could be speculation- do we know for sure?

Good job on that, it sounds cool so far.

I ain't sure what happened to Cerinia, no, sorry....I heard that same stuff you heard about it, tho... :|
