TT G2: Blackbird by silentsketcher TT G2: Blackbird by silentsketcher
I was inspired by who has done a lot of Teen Titans fan art, but specifically by one piece of a second generation of Teen Titans. [link] Essentially these characters' parents were of the original Teen Titans and so that gave me the motivation to create ones of my own.

Here is one I call "Blackbird" and he is the bastard son of Starfire and Robin. His costume mainly resembles more of the Tamaranian style and then threw in a few things that would help give it a bird theme, like the cape and the designs on his feet. His costume is basically all black with a violet tinge and the other parts are silver. The arms are exposed and are only covered by the "V" shaped armbands. His skin is orange-ish, his hair black with a violet tinge, and his eyes violet just like his mother's. I also gave him the same alien eyebrows.

As for his abilities, he's mainly got those of his mother's except lessend since he is half human. Also he doesn't shoot "starbolt" energy from his eyes but has some other unique ability (in the transformation episode that was Starfire's special new power, which is supposed to be different with each Tamaranian and I have no idea what Blackfire's is supposed to be). I haven't figured exactly what it would be, but it'll come to me.

I gave him the title of Blackbird as a play on both his parents' superhero names. "Black" obviously from "Blackfire" and then I chose a bird name that would work with it and thus "Blackbird". Blackbird also has a younger half-brother named Starling. Blackbird is the bastard son of Robin and Blackfire, Starfire's sister. It seemed more than likely that Starfire and Robin would end up together, but then I thought of a little sinister idea. What if Blackfire sought her revenge on Starfire in the best way that would hurt her? What if Blackfire disguised herself as Starfire, fooled Robin, and then seduced him which resulted in the conception and birth of Blackfire? That seemed like the most cruel thing that she could do to her sister. Of course it would take some time to come to terms with that so Starling would've been born probably a bit later.

Blackfire wouldn't stick around much later after her wicked deed and I'd imagine she would raise him all on her own. Because of that he would be very much like his mother: smug, malevolent, and very strong. Like his mother, I'd imagine he'd be instilled with a grudge against his half-brother like Blackfire does with her sister. Being raised just by her would create a great deal of influence.

Anyway, sorry for going on and on like this, but I felt the need to explain my ideas. If you've actually taken the time to read all of this thank you very much. I hope you found it interesting.
