Uniques United is an animated series currently in the making about six sibling mice who are training to become agents for a king while also piecing together a mystery surrounding the sudden disappearance of their parents.

Who am I?


My name is Ryan. Ever since the age of 12, I wanted to write my own cartoons. Since that day, I still am running on the very first concept I had, though it has grown and changed over the years to what would eventually become Uniques United. I believe animation is the grandest medium for expressing one's thoughts.

Right now, I'm 26 years old and I'm living with my parents. Because I have no job (aside from a small Twitch channel of mine) and I cannot work outside my home, my income is extremely limited. I would love nothing more in this world than to work on this cartoon. But I need your help in making it happen.

FYI:
It could be a while before any actual animation comes out. Animation is very expensive and time-consuming to produce, especially if you are a producer like me and not an artist or animator. All funding gained via Patreon goes directly to the show's development. It is not a personal source of income for me or anyone who I may entrust the management of the Patreon page to.

Current Plans:
I need to find an artist who can help me draw official, finalized designs for each of the main characters, namely the six mice! Once I find the artist and know how much their services will cost, I will specify them (and overall progress) down below, under *Current use of funds*

I also want to look into getting Uniques United a trademark and any other necessary legal protections for the show as well.

Some info about the starring characters!


Current use of funds:
Character model sheets -- $??? (Need to find an artist)
Official character designs -- $??? (Need to find an artist)

Estimated Funds available (Updated 13th Jan, 2019) -- $26

Let's take a look at the main characters!

NEIL


Neil is 16 years old and is Miranda's twin brother. He is also a wizard's apprentice and though he's only been studying magic for a year, he's able to put his skills to use at any time. His special talent seems to be summoning tornado-shaped creatures of ether and air, having as many as 10 under his command at one time.

People may find Neil to be a little odd and slightly eccentric, as he avoids socializing in public. But his clear-headed thinking enables him (and others) to rely on his judgement more than anyone else. He can be a little too cautious though and has trouble trusting others he doesn't know very well.

DANIEL

Daniel is the oldest of the six siblings at 17 years of age. He's also the strongest and the largest. Despite what you may think, he doesn't really work out at the gym, do any sort of body building, and generally prefers to talk to people rather than fight. His large and sturdy frame may intimidate some but his knack of using persuasion and careful word choice makes him a gentle giant, and a likeable one at that.

The one thing that continually gives him trouble is this strange neurological condition he has which interferes with the circuitry of his brain. Once or twice a week, he'll have "episodes" lasting up to five minutes where he'll experience anything from hallucinations, visual anomalies (such as going colorblind), and he'll totally forget where he is. Oftentimes, he'll lose his footing and fall over while reality seems to "crumble before his eyes." Fortunately, it soon fades away after a few minutes, although he sometimes gets tired of having to explain himself to an increasing number of people.

ANDREW


Andrew is the youngest at age 10. His energy and unconstrained imagination gives him many ways of dealing with trouble...if he doesn't make it worse. He has incredible running speed, a knack for contraptions, and a penchant for taking things apart in amusing ways. He's training to become the king's Saboteur, which enables him to channel his propensity for mischief in a useful way.

Because he is only 10, Andrew acts like a child, thinks like a child, is a child, and special care must be taken to make sure his hyperactivity, impish sense of humor, and the simple fact he's a kid, doesn't land him in more trouble than he can get himself out of. Andrew hasn't seen the world like his older siblings have, and hasn't quite learned some of the unwritten rules of proper social conduct. That said, Andrew has a surprisingly high degree of self-awareness, and it shows through his total seeming absence of worry. "Worry is for grown-ups!" is a striking remark he often makes.

STANLEY


Stanley was born without the ability to feel pain and because of that, he grew up without a lot of natural inhibitions that keep people alive. Some say it's a miracle he hasn't gotten himself killed by falling off a building, touching an electric wire, or suffering some kind of mortal wound. That said, being unable to tell if he is injured or sick means he could be two steps from death, not even knowing. To compensate for this, he trains his body to be exceptionally resilient and making sure to see a doctor to make sure he's not hurt.

Stanley also has an unusual affinity and curiosity to learn about anything involving demonic, undead, or occult societies. While some may question why he is so drawn to this sort of thing, his heart is pure and he intends to use the knowledge he gains from his studies responsibly. On the medieval world of Jipto, not all demons are evil, and not all undead wish to destroy the living. Because of that, he has gained a colorful circle of friends and acquaintances, each lending a morsel of wisdom to help steer Stanley away from trouble. Stanley also possesses the ability to turn his mind into a pocket dimension and within it, and has a system of managing the literal demons he has in there.

SIMON


Simon is 13 years old and has a brilliant mind, influenced by both science and philosophy, moreso the latter as of late. His growing gift of empathy and diplomatic training by the king means he can mastermind an entire network of friends and acquaintances. He even keeps tabs of the favors he owes and is owed. The pen is indeed mightier than the sword when it comes to anything Simon is entrusted with.

That said, Simon has his flaws, some of which are severely crippling. He suffers from emotional burdens, including post-traumatic stress and separation anxiety. The sudden absence of his parents has nearly driven him off the deep end, and Miranda is especially careful in looking after him to make sure he doesn't succumb to his burdens.

MIRANDA


Miranda is 16 and Neil's twin sister. Mentally, she's tough as nails and has the ability to take incredibly heavy and serious matters in stride. Because of her inner strength and clear conscience, she has what it takes to complete her training as an assassin, which she plans to put into practice in service of the king. She also has the uncanny ability to steal the magical powers of her enemies and store them in her mind for her own use, like tearing pages from a book.

Miranda needs to be as strong as she is because of the huge number of responsibilities she bears. Looking after the family in her parents' absence, protecting her home and her brothers from harmful people and influences, and restraining herself from the temptation to kill anyone whose name isn't on her assassination contracts. The fact she seldom gets any time for herself combined with all the stuff that constantly needs her attention can cause Miranda to lose her cool at the wrong moment. Beware of her death stare as even the dead are reputed to back away when she gives anyone a certain "look."
