Drifting! Feather Pretty Cure is a fanseries created by Lina Archer. Its motifs are birds and light, and its themes are love and acceptance, finding your way, and personal growth.

Hopefully, it'll be on AO3 soon.

Synopsis

Long ago, darkness was king.

Chaos and fear ran rampant, and the master of it all was Nevarek, the embodiment of hate.

Until one day...when the great and powerful Cure Pheonix, daughter of light, warrior of good, used all of her power to seal it away, giving herself to do so...

Her seal has held for years, but now, as Nevarek's power returns, it's beginning to falter. A new group of warriors must rise, and this time, they're going to defeat Nevarek and its supplicants forever.

Characters

Pretty Cure

  • Kazumi Hanejiro-A kind, quiet girl who suffers from drastically low self-esteem. She desperately wants friends, but is too scared to try. Despite this, she tends to see the best in people, except when they have hurt someone close to her. Kazumi's alter ego is Cure Dove, the Peaceful Pretty Cure.
  • Reina Fulton-An arrogant girl who spends most of her time acting like a royal butthead in order to impress her father, the CEO of mighty Fulton Enterprises. Under all that, however, Reina carries around a massive amount of self-doubt, and can be surprisingly empathetic and pursuasive when she wants to be. Reina's alter ego is Cure Peacock, the Regal Pretty Cure.
  • Sophia Sówka-Sophia is a quiet, intelligent girl who usually just wants to be left alone, thank you very much. While seemingly prickly and cold on the surface, anyone who really knows Sophia knows the sharp wit and an intense love of learning that define her. That love can lead her into darkness, however, as her dedication to academics can lead her into overwork. She also tends towards doormatting, ignoring her own feelings to support her mother and the people around her. Sophia's alter ego is Cure Strix, the Wise Pretty Cure.
  • Adélie Caldwell-Fun-loving and (from most people's perspective) younger than her years, Adélie is a dynamic, energetic force. She's deeply passionate about the environment, and wants to spread that love. Most people find her kind of irritating, but that doesn't seem to penetrate. "Seem" being the operative word here-Adélie's a queen at hiding just how much things hurt her. Her alter ego is Cure Penguin, the Energetic Pretty Cure.
    • VA: ????

Allies

  • Esen-An angel-like emissary from Silnyy Anvah who acts as a mentor to the Cures. She's very motherly and caring, though her seriousness can get in the way of that sometimes. While disguised as a human, she uses the name Esen Burakgazi.

The Nevarek Clan

The Nevarek Clan, a group who worship the embodiment of hate, serve as the antagonists of the season. Their members include...

  • Klimaxe Imperator-The Clan's leader, and Nevarek's chief priest. He's a manipulative man who delights in others' pain.
  • Eistova-A young woman who seems to be around the Cures' age. She's full of hate and anger for everyone but her Clan...it seems.
  • Zver-An incredibly strong young man who's smarter than he looks. He doesn't usually use Manifests, preferring to fight the Cures on his own terms.
  • Besser-A cold, cruel woman who serves as the brains of the group.

Other Characters

Families

  • Tomie Hanejiro-Kazumi's older sister, who seems to do everything perfectly.

  • Richard Fulton-Reina's father, and the CEO of Fulton Enterprises. Due to his work, he spends almost no time around his family.

Friends & Peers

  • Aya Saki-An upbeat, gregarious girl who quickly befriends Kazumi. She's incredibly accepting, and has no tolerance for any kind of dishonesty.
  • Sam Tamboli-A friend of Aya's. While generally kind, they tend to be cynical and skeptical towards people they don't know.
