Character Info

April is a field reporter for Channel Six 'Eyewitness' News in Manhattan. She also runs an internet YouTube / Podcast called 'Truth Seekers' in which she has garnered a wide following of fans. Her internet work allows April to cover the investigative reports that the TV Station won't let her air, but the TV gig has helped spread her name and face across the city, which has been mutually beneficial to her online persona.

Note: This iteration of April O'Neil is primarily inspired by the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film, though the physical appearance is borrowed from the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film for modernising the character's look and style. This April O'Neil is primarily an internet personality, though she still works for Channel Six News and will sometimes do remote pieces for them and on-scene interviews.

Find the Truth:
Whether through biking through the City's busy streets has made April extremely aware of her surroundings, or just generally searching the city for the next news story to cover and bring to her boss for proof of her ability as an up-and-coming reporter, April is always 'watching'. She's trained herself to have a situational awareness that is paramount to achieving her daily goals. A> Don't get run over B> FIND THE STORY! (these two things are scribbled on her bathroom mirror in a black marker near the bottom edge of the mirror).

Good Friend:
April is a quality friend, her personality leads her to being there for her closest friends no matter what they need or want. She'll be there to help them and be a comforting shoulder to rest their head upon.

April is generally a happy person. She was raised by two parents who were happy people as well, even if they died tragically they raised April to maintain her positivity and to spread it to others if possible.

April is a loyal person. Once she starts something, anything, she has a hard time stopping it or quitting it until its seen through to its end.

April's perception is one of her greatest features. She uses it in her career and it helps her get out of situations, as well as get in to them.

Both of April's parents were positive influences on her life, though her father stands out more in her mind as the true inspiration behind her desire to 'never give up' and remain Unyielding in the face of adversity.

Character Sheet

Click to expand.

April is an astute artist, painting, drawing and coloring. It is a skill she picked up from both of her parents. Her favorite form of art is pencil drawings however, and she'll often sit and draw a portrait of a loved one from either a photo of them or if they're napping or resting long enough for her to grab the image with her pencil.

April's sport of choice since she was a little girl has been bike riding. A hobby encouraged by her parents, April rode competitively through her school years and continues to ride a perosnally-modified bicycle through the streets of Manhattan to this day as she considers it to be a superior way to get around the city during peak traffic hours.

April spends most of her day riding on her bicycle so that alone is enough to keep her at great cardio levels. However, there's also a community gym near her home that she spends time at each night to do light weight training, which allows her to be at her best physically and mentally. "We have to take care of ourselves on every level, April. Otherwise we're cheating ourselves." She could hear her father saying this to her on many occasions.

Self Defense:
One of the common exercises at the gym is a boxing ring and a mixed martial arts octagon. Since early on in college, April has participated in these training sessions and its helped improve her ability to defend herself from would-be-thugs or nare-do-wells that might wish her, or anyone around her harm. April is not master ninja... but she's capable enough in a fight with your average thug.

April is a college trained writer and she tries to write something every day. She has a head filled with thoughts and words and she wants to throw them down onto paper or onto her computer or phone any time she has a free moment.

College Degree:
April got her Graduates Degree in Communications and Media at the Manhattan campus of Berkeley. She's been an A+ student her entire life and can't mentally, or physically, allow herself to be anything but the best at what she's focused on doing.

Family Farm:
April's father left her his family's farm and farmhouse located in Northampton, Massachusetts. Its a large plot of land that has a three story tall house and a large old barn. April visited the farmhouse many times as a child and has a lot of fond memories of it... part of her wishes she could live there all the time, but she knew she'd go stir crazy in a small town setting.

Local Celebrity:
April's podcast is gaining followers as the topics of super heroes and local crime / conspiracies seem to draw quite an audience. Her Field Reporting for Channel Six news is continuing to help grow her name as a local celebrity as well, which combined are giving her a bit more access to things then a regular person might get. Between the podcast and the tv news reporting, April's is becoming fairly well known in the NY area.

Press Pass:
April is a member of the Press and comes with credentials that should allow her access to most all crime scenes/press events and potentially many other venues that the average citizen is kept out of. Flash the press badge and be waved on in!

April tends to get rather curious about things around here and subsequently starts to pry into people's business, or situations unfolding around here. Her nosiness can get her into all manner of trouble and it has.

April is as stubborn as they get. When she gets her mind set on a task or a goal, she refuses to quit on it until she reaches a resolution on the matter that satiates her curiosity. She rarely backs down on anything that she wants to see through to completion.

Trouble Magnet:
Wherever April seems to go to try to find a story, trouble seems to follow her. Though she doesn't intentionally mean for trouble to happen, it just seems to be the case. Its made her quite sneaky and stealthy, in order to escape the trouble... but none-the-less this is an ongoing issue for the young girl throughout her life thus far.
