Characters from I science fiction novel that I started writing a long time ago called "Diary of An Alien." I hope I'm able to finish it some day. But as of the date I posted this, its still a work in progress. The Characters are from left to right, Anna Kesler, Snark, and Fig Fing
The Story takes place sometime in the fifty first century on an artificial planet named "The Republic of Vienna." Its a society where for the most part humans and extraterrestrials from multiple planets across the Milky Way live side by side and for the most part, and even become citizens and vote in national elections. Tn spite of some bigotry, all humanoids according to the Viennan constitution are supposed to have equality under the law.
Anna is the main character. The entire story is told from her point of view. She's a teenage Lizardian who was adopted by humans soon after she hatched. The Keslers raised her as their own, and named her Anna. She never met her real parents. The only mom and dad she ever knew are the two humans who took her from the orphanage as a baby. She is a carnivore, but she doesn't like having to eat meat, since she feels sorry for other animals. Unfortunately, her people are incapable of digesting artificial meat, so she has to eat real meat in order to live. Anna also dreams of becoming a cheer leader. However, at least some of the humans at her school might not like having one of "her kind" on the cheer leading squad. Thankfully modern Vienna has very strict anti discrimination laws.
Snark is the high school janitor. His people have a sense of smell equivalent to that of a blood hound. He doesn't have much of a role in the story, but he and Anna have known each other for quite some time. Don't call him a wolf or a dog. His people did not evolve from wolves or dogs, they evolved from a quadrupedal wolf like alien species, that vaguely resembled a wolf.
Fig is Anna's best friend. She's also a teenager, but she's about a year younger than Anna. Her species, the Vesps, were among the first people to develop space travel, and figured out how to bend space time, so they could get around the light speed barrier and traverse galaxy, long before Albert Einstein was even born. Fig none the less is an admirer of Einstein along with several other nineteenth, twentieth and early twenty first century human scientists. ( I heard a rumor that this one

, back in the twenty first century, is her favorite historic human scientist, but I have yet to confirm that.
) She is a scientific genius herself, and is one of the smartest students at Edmond high school, as well as kind and compassionate, but she also has a dark side. She's been venomous ever since she reached puberty, but she'll only use inject her venom in self defense, or to take down her prey, which doesn't include other humanoids, so you don't have to worry too much.
