Putleys! The universe experiences a religious revival now that they came so close to death but were saved. Enjoy meeting hundreds of new and exciting or not so exciting gods and "gods!" Putleys are such nice friends. Also now everyone dies young in the putley fashion, except for a few outcasts.

Trout is the laid back dad of the bunch. Such a friendly pal. But they have some skeletons in their closet... also a shotgun.
Trout is in charge of Farmin'. They are the head farmer. It is their job to instill in aftik youth a proper appreciation of hard work, scoutin' techniques, arts 'n' crafts, croppin', love of nature, how to pet a meg, etc.
Theyre also in charge of education. They are everyone's dad. They love you. They will also kill for you.
Trout likes fishing, and teaching all the young aftiks to fish. They take groups of kids out on fishing trips and started the Growing Adventurers Scout Camp.
They are the surrogate dad for aftiks to look up to and to get taught important hobbies and crafts, like learning how to make a lanyard. To non-aftiks, they are more like your friend's-dad, in that they make sure youre doing okay, make sure youre not watching an r rated movie downstairs, gets you kfc etc.

Cuprite is the chief diplomat. A former middling statesperson, they were told they had a terminal disease like 20 years ago and had like a year to live, so they decided to abandon long term personal gain and leave a legacy of good in international relations. Then they kept on not dying. As such they are completely checked out of life and negotiate knowing they don't want to be bothered with petty things and they can leave the negotiating table at any second if they feel like it. They like boxing recreationally because they like letting out their anger onto the other person; this one time killed someone and they didn't feel bad about it. Tries to be fair in larger pursuits, cheats at gambling because it's "small". Do not play poker with them for any stakes because their reputation as a statesperson does not translate to the card table.
Cuprite (F): head diplomat/state sec/spokesperson/hatchetperson

Heliotrope is the lowest in position of the 12, acting as the well-liked assitant to the other 11, fetching snacks, arranging meetings, and settling quarrels between them all. They are also the face that people see as a ceremonial head of aftik society, the friendly face you address your letters to. This face slowly changes over time. Heliotrope has no personality except for the one you project onto them....and that's just! fine! for them. They help appoint those in charge of the education cirriculum (alongside trout, whose main job is that + other long term future planning, and cerulean) by choosing friends who have had the best stories and who has helped them blow off the most steam. Nobody wants to be heliotrope because it's the worst and most stressful+hectic+thankless job. In fact, Heliotrope has considered splitting the head of state position into 12 sub-positions....
Heliotrope (F)- fetcher, ceremonial figurehead
[S-5 || I-1 || C-9 || E-5 || A-13 || L-0 ] ttl 34

Amber is....... um.... well, they kind of died. But, still stick around through sheer willpower of their burning spirit. Miraculous and lucky things happen around their constantly-burning figure, which you can't look at directly or you will go insane, blind or both. They are revered in aftik society as a god, which is as good of an explanation as any for their whole deal. They periodically say they have to go off to "deal with something" and whe they come back they don't say anything about it but usually they smell like burning flesh and hair for a little bit.
Used to be the head of economic affairs (both internal and external) and the de-facto leader/moral center of the carousel, but when they died, they [Changed for the AHHH] and they were thrown a ceremonial position. Now economic affairs are split into two because no one besides Amber could have possibly done everything by themselves.

Amber (F)-motivation, divinity, revenge/judgment
[Stats unknown]

Olive is the bruiser of the bunch. One of the strongest aftiks ever to be born with a whopping 15 str. Regularly competes in strongfolk contests and wins, because they are seriously an abnormality. Carries shotputs with them. Also skilled in engineering and likes to build things to test the structural integrity of (by throwing shotputs at it/ramming into it)

Tanzanite is in charge of hard military operations. They are kind of a pyromaniac, so military operations involve a lot of bombing and explosions. They were self taught from an early age on how to blow things up. Accordingly, have been missing their tail and a leg since youth (woops oops). They are always looking for new ways to blow things up and the reactions between new materials being obtained by explorer fleets.
Usually uses a personal battlesuit when on business, but prefers to be out of it for comfort and when in public and just uses crutches. Their [Expansive] stat boost is when they are wearing the battlesuit.
[Expansive]
Tanzanite (F)-military, demolitions. [Expansive]
[S-6(+6) || I-9 || C:8 || E-2(+7) || A-2(+3) || L:4(-3) ] ttl: 32 (45)

Jet is in charge of making sure internal affairs are going well, and external affairs are favorable. They act as the secret oversight for everyone else's departments, and if something goes wrong, very subtle things will occur that don't have their fingerprints on it to rectify the situation. Usually, it involves just calling up a favor between friends. Often, indigo is the only one let in on the loop for these operations. Also, they're dating indigo, and they pretend like they're keeping it a secret, but everyone knows and tries to play along, but J+I know everyone knows and play along with their playing along.
Jet (F)-Internal oversight, special ops, IC
[S-7 || I-10 || C-7 || E-5 || A-9 || L-2 ] ttl 40

Indigo (indie) is the head of popular cultural affairs and propaganda.They try to keep aftik society fun and functional by using the levers of the media empire they are in charge of to boost carefree and hip acts and denounce aggressive, divisive ones. The only fighting and violence this society needs is that which is carried out by the state, after all. Aftiks rule with a woop and a grin! Rule by 90s actionsports skateboard cartoon aesthetic.
Dyed to be a much richer and vibrant feather color than they grew up with.
Indigo (M)-Culture, media, propaganda

Cerulean is a high-blood aftik prince who has a trident. They use it mostly for fishing. They abdicated their set life as aftik prince for a life of a monk's astheticism, but became a 'philosopher king' through the allure of their discoveries. As such, they are the moral councellor who often clashes with eggshell.
They're high blood because they were born on a mountain so they have thinner blood than normal aftiks. can stand higher altitudes etc
Their birth year and true age is unknown. They are by far the oldest of the Carousel, yet appear to revert their appearance to a middle aged look every other generation. They predate the rest by a long, long time. They are [expanded brain meme]
Cerulean (nb)- morality/ethics, philosophy, cultural education
[S-0 || I-12 || C-10 || E-14 || A-1 || L-5 ] ttl 42

Eggshell is a neat freak. Ha ha! what WON't they clean! Ethnic cleansing included. They are in charge of hygiene and high-genes. eugenics
Eggshell isn't into hard eugenics like notails were. Just like, trying to minimize certain at-birth conditions (which are in no way wrong for aftiks to have! you are valid, aftiks who have those conditions. cerulean has said this many a time) They are also in charge of epidemic control and minimizing casualities from any number of potential catastrophies which can visit aftik society at any time.
Eggshell (M)-Health, hygiene, emergency mgmt

Fordite is the internal economic specialist, often working with Emmy. They are obsessed with the concepts of time and division to the point where they have tried divvying up parts of their personality to put into automotons who act as a management structure (and succeeded). They are incredibly impersonal, referring to everything in terms of quanifiable units. They are in charge of planning state-run business production targets and the maximum and minimum allowed parameters for private enterprise to work within in order to provide a high chance of the economy staying stable within the next 8 months and next 3.5 years. Emmy takes them on adventures and liveblogs it.
Fordite was born in a lower class, heavily polluted area, where a lot more people than average were born intersex (including them). They got assigned a gender but later came out as primarily nb (as the most often fronting part of a multiple system, their other most-frequently fronting perosnality is male).
Fordite has the ability to split into two different characters with halved normal stats (rounding up), and one or both of those characters can split.
Fordite (NB primarily as part of a multiple system)-internal economy/division of labor, safety regulation

Emerald (Emmy) is in charge of trade. They aren't really anything special, just a good friendly honest businessaftik who is always sincere and looking for ways to grow mutually beneficial deals. If they are mad at you, they will completely shut you out, avoid all contact, and build up around you. They come from a large pool of door to door salesfolk aftiks who learn in the way of a dealmaking textbook written by a sage who lived their entire life among gecks.
Emmy (M)- trade

The highest counsel of aftiks (in runs where aftiks are organized) is called the Carousel.
It's called this for two reasons: in aftik culture, there's a story of a siege that took place at an amusement park; the aftiks held out for four days in intense urban guerilla warfare and were eventually victorious. At the end, the whole place was inoperable, except for a carousel, which a lower ranking soldier who was pretty demoralized tried operating in a shellshocked state. It worked, and the remaining forces rode on the carousel for an hour and a half before heading back to high command; carousels in general but especially this one are seen as a symbol characteristic of the neverending will for aftiks to endure - and do so in good spirits.
And second, as a joke, beause in the earlier days of the aftik high counsel, members would come and go pretty frequently.

Up until the most recent iteration, there were 10 members. amber died however, but still stuck around, but but they were no longer interested in their old duties of economy. Economy was split up into internal economy (division of labor/regulations) and external economy (trade) bringing up the total to 12.
Amber has stuck around as a "well, we can't really say no to an old friend" kind of post. also, a "we have an unusual power gifthorsed to us that we aren't gonna look in the mouth"
