Hey everybody!  

It's been a while since I did one of these.  Today, I am here to let you know that I am taking suggestions for what the design of Titans Academy's campus should be like so I can finally draw it out.  The building itself is a high school, and it runs a lot like the high schools in Japan do, only that the students and faculty all are in costume much of the time during the school days.  In the central courtyard is a statue of the original 7 founding members of the first Teen Titans (Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy and Raven), as well as cherry blossom trees that bloom every spring.  The floor plans can be up to you guys, but generally speaking, I'm thinking there should be at least 3 floors.  There can also be on-campus housing on the mainland, in the form of beach houses that two students can share each, while Robin (Tim Drake) and his team of Titans get the privilege of staying in Titans Tower, only out of tradition.  There's even a memorial with statues of fallen Titans including Jericho, Terra (Tara Markov) the first Hawk and Dove and Jason Todd when he was still Robin.  

Anyway, feel free to lay down what ideas you have for me in notes and I'll consider them!  Pictures of specific floor plans would be nice too.  Thank you all so much!  
Flying up in a blaze of glory, it's Carla Moretti, AKA Cinder!!!
Cinder
Here's another Italian Teen Titan, Carla Moretti, AKA Cinder!!!  

Born and raised in the small village of Montisi, Italy, Carla was the eldest daughter of her family, descended from Jewish immigrants who converted to Christianity in the Renaissance.  Growing up in the lush and fertile hills of Tuscany, Carla used to go to a good school in nearby Sienna, where she gained a passion for art, opera, architecture, literature and fashion, and while at home, she also learned how to cook from her mother and nonna.  However, she also was more interested in magic.  Finding an old tome of magic incantations used by the Romans for blessings and protection against evil.  All that changed, when her twin brothers, Dario and Lorenzo, both 8 years old, were seriously injured when one of them stepped on a landmine.  Horrified, Carla used what magic she learned on her own to try and heal her brothers, who she loved dearly.  As it turned out, Carla was quite skilled for an amateur mage, and could be excommunicated by the Catholic Church should the priest have found out.  

This drew Trigon the Terrible like a bee to honey.  He arrived to the scene after having possessed another villager's body, and he poured sweet words into the girl's ear, making her all sorts of promises, including to save her brothers.  Beguiled, she accepted, but in the process was also cursed.  Trigon made it so that Carla could control the fires of Hell itself, but nobody could even touch her, or risk being set aflame for all eternity.  Trigon then went on to tell Carla that he would save her brothers if she killed the Teen Titans for him.  Of course, Trigon had no intention of saving Carla's brothers, he only sought to make himself stronger, so he could take out his revenge.  Once again, under the illusion that Trigon would save her brothers, Carla agreed, and made her way towards the Pacific Coastline of Jump City, California.  Yet Raven sensed all that went on.  When Carla came in sight of Titans Tower, she began to unleash her powers of hellfire for the first time, but it was Raven and Kid Devil who had to confront her.  Kid Devil, having seen Trigon's physical form firsthand, told Carla that he was lying to her, and to prove it, Raven backed her mentee up, and projected into Carla's mind Trigon's true form, and what he'd done to the Earth once, and that it would happen again.  At first she refused to believe what she heard, but then as Kid Devil held her close, she realized they were telling the truth.  Heartbroken by this knowledge, she broke down into tears, as she was now cursed for all eternity.  Yet there was a silver lining to all this.  

Wally West, AKA The Flash, saw the whole ordeal, and asked Beatriz da Costa, AKA Fire to take some time off the Justice League to help Carla, as the two girls had similar powers.  Beatriz told Carla she and the Titans would definitely help to control her powers, but that she should, in the meantime, settle down and attend Titans Academy as a high school student and develop a normal life.  It was Kid Devil who encouraged Carla to join, as the two of them had something in common, and he was immune to her flames.  Carla eagerly accepted, and took on the alias of Cinder, one of the Teen Titans!  

Whew!  That was long!  Huge, huge thanks to :icon1987man: for suggesting the idea of making Carla a heroine!  In the comics, Cinder was one of the members of Titans: Villains for Hire, and was one of Deathstroke's subordinates.  Her backstory was kinda vague, so :icon1987man: offered the idea to have Trigon be the reason for her powers.  Since she was also in the Italian Army in the comics, I figured I'd give her some reference to that.  This version of Carla is very fond of Ancient Roman military tactics and battle strategies, and she usually talks with Bombshell about military related topics.  She and M'gann do get along somewhat, but Carla keeps her distance, as fire is the biggest weakness for Martians.  That said, she's always seen hanging out with Prysm, Solstice and Bombshell, since all of them essentially can't wear clothes due to their powers, and just go around naked.  Carla also hangs out with Toni, as they're both Italians, and they have a lot in common, often talking in their own native language to make things easier.  When she's practicing her powers of flight and heat manipulation, or just hanging out, Carla also has found fast friends in Nightstar, Robin, Blue Beetle, Green Lanterns Kyle Rayner and Soranik Natu, Hot Spot, Captain Marvel Jr., Grace, Damage and Supergirl, Superboy, Red Star, Nightwing and Starfire.  For obvious reasons, she is also Raven's mentee, and the girlfriend of Kid Devil.  

Disclaimer:  Cinder belongs to DC Comics, Eric Wallace and Fabrizio Fiorentino.

I'm a big fan of DC Comics and anime, and that is reflected in my art. My feelings for the New 52 are mixed, but email me if you want to know my opinion on that. I've done some fanfic series set in the DC Universe that I'd be happy to share with those who ask. If you'd like to collab on something with me, then shoot me a message and let's see what we can come up with!

Thanks! Look forward to posting more art!

When I was a kid, yes, but that was a phase. Now I am a diehard D.C. Fan.
