Raveena's got it all: an unstoppable ship, a robot army, her own private galaxy. The only thing she can't seem to get her hands on is Earth...
Raveena comes from a hot, fiery planet, so her body is always on fire. When she gets really angry, her flames flare up! Raveena likes to be in charge, so she prefers to work alone - her only companion is Leo, a small Fire Lion. Clever and conceited, Raveena has decided to build a galaxy of her own, where she'll make all the decisions. She designed the universe's largest ship, Dark Matter, to help her carry out her plan. Dark Matter can suck up whole planets and send them through a portal into Raveena's private galaxy. The giant ship is always on the prowl for new planets to add to her collection! Everyone in the Galactic League is terrified. The aliens who've already lost their planets are not happy about it. We wonder what Raveena has to say for herself.
Raveena, some people call you a villain. What do you think about that?
They just aren't looking at the big picture! I'm taking their planets to the greatest of all galaxies. They should be thanking me! Do I kidnap planets without permission? Absolutely - but doesn't everyone do something like that once in a while? You say villain, I say winner. Let's agree to disagree.
When you take a planet away to your private galaxy, do you ever ask the people on the planet if they want to go?
Well, I try not to tell anyone ahead of time. I want it to be a surprise! Have you noticed that people on most planets can't agree on anything? If they don't want to go to my galaxy, then they obviously just don't know what's good for them. It would be a waste of time to talk to people on every single planet. I'm way too busy for that.
What do you think of the All Girl Star Squad?
I think they should stick to playing video games, and leave the real battles to space heroes. Silly girls!
Do you think the girls can stop you and rescue Earth?
Give me a break! I'M the one who's rescuing Earth, they're just getting in the way! Besides, how are three puny girls going to prevent me from doing anything?
Why are you always trying to attack Earth?
Sigh... How many times do I have to explain this to you? I'm not trying to attack Earth, I'm doing everyone on Earth a big favor by allowing them to join my galaxy. They should be honored! Earth also happens to have the largest stardust deposit ever detected, which will come in very useful in my schemes...um, I mean, in my fantastic plans.
How many robots do you have? Do you build them all yourself?
Right now, I have around 2.2 billion, give or take a few. Of course I don't build them, do you have any idea how long that would take? Most of them come from planets I've collected, and I just reprogram them to do my bidding.
Are you always on fire? Even when you sleep?
Who has time to sleep? The universe isn't going to capture itself.
What keeps you so busy?
I spend all my time working out ways to collect more planets. While we're traveling between solar systems, I sketch plans for improvements to my ship, Dark Matter, to make it pick up new planets even faster! I would like to expand my ship one day, so it can suck in several planets at the same time.
Who's your best friend?
Friends are for the weak
Even villains need love... have you ever had a crush on anybody, Raveena?
All right, that does it! This interview is over. I've got way too much work to do to waste my precious time with this! Soon you will know everything about me as I will be your one true leader!
He's small, but he's got a fiery spirit! Still, Leo isn't telling the Galactic League all he knows...
Leo is an important crew member on the Galactic League's main battleship. He's in charge of defending the ship and planning out ways to stop Raveena before she steals any more planets! Leo is a fire-lion, known for his bravery and fighting abilities. Stray and the other members of the Galactic League rely on Leo to protect them, and he's always been a trusted friend to the League. But Leo has a secret he's keeping from them all - a secret that could be very dangerous for his friends and for the All Girl Star Squad!
Leo, can you tell us what you do on the Galactic League ship?
I'm the tactical officer, which means I try to keep the ship safe in battle and I come up with ways to fight back against enemies.
Enemies like Raveena?
Yes, that's right. Raveena's giant ship has been stealing all our planets. We're going to stop her, though, don't worry! We can't let her capture Earth! Right now, our main mission is making sure that Earth stays safe.
What are some of your plans?
Well, our first plan was to find some Earth heroes to help us. Boots used his special telescope to find Mika, Jessy and Yuki. They're young, and they don't have any real training, but they're smart and determined and strong. They're our best hope right now.
What do you think of the girls?
They're wonderful, just great! I wasn't convinced that video game players could really do the job, but now that I'm getting to know them, I can see that they have what it takes to put up a fight. I'd feel really bad if anything happened to them...
So you think they can actually defeat Raveena?
Well, it's hard to say. Raveena is very, very powerful. I hope they can beat her. We all hope they can, but... [sigh] I just don't know.
We hear that Raveena has been collecting a lot of information about the Galactic League. Some people even think she might have a spy on your ship! What do you think?
A spy? No, um... I don't think so. I know everyone on our ship very well. Nobody on our ship would help Raveena! Definitely not. We all want Raveena's plans to fail.
You're very brave, Leo, but we all wonder...are you afraid of anything?
I don't get scared in battle and I've faced my share of danger, but... I've got to admit, I'm terrified of water! I am made of fire, after all!
From video games to saving the day, Jessy's tough to beat!
Known for her wicked aim and fast reflexes, Jessy hasn't lost an action game in two years! She's one of the toughest girl gamers around. Jessy was featured on the cover of "Gamer Guys" for breaking all the guys' game records. This was an awesome moment for Jessy, since she was the first girl ever featured in the magazine. Jessy always speaks her mind and never holds back. She'll do anything to stand up for her friends. No matter what, Jessy's always in it to win!
Ella here! I'm talking with Jessy, AGA's unstoppable action-game champ!
Hey, how's it goin'?
Jessy, tell me, what's your winning secret?
Practice, hard work and determination. And I picture the look on the boys' faces when they get beat by me! Having my best friends around me helps, too.
How did you start gaming, and how did you get so good?
Well, I have two older brothers, and they would always beat me at games. They bugged me all the time, saying I was "playing like a girl." It drove me nuts! I always knew I could be just as good as the boys. So I practiced all the time until finally I could beat them with my eyes closed!
That must have felt good!
It was great... until one of them turned the system off so I couldn't put my name on the leaderboard! But it was one of the best days ever - I showed them gaming wasn't just a guy thing and that girls can totally rule! Now, they're two of my biggest fans. We still play against each other all the time.
What other hobbies do you have besides gaming?
I'm really into mountain biking, rock climbing and rollerblading. Yeah, I play video games, but I'm also an outdoorsy girl!
Do you have a crush right now?
Heck no! Don't go there, girl! [laughs] I don't even tell Yuki or Mika who I like, so I don't think you'll get it out of me!
Who decorated the apartment you girls share?
Mika did most of the work! She's really into fashion and design, and she ended up making it look super sweet.
What's it like living with Mika and Yuki?
They're my best friends, so they're great to live with... most of the time! Sometimes it makes me crazy, like when Mika takes way too long to get ready in the morning! I can be a bit of a tomboy sometimes since I grew up with my brothers. I still like clothes and shoes and shopping with the girls, but it only takes me five minutes to get dressed and out the door.
What's your favourite food?
Sushi! I've got to get my sushi - when we travel, I always map out the nearest restaurants to try.
What kind of music do you like?
Loud! I like rock music, fast music, anything that gets me pumped up. As soon as I wake up in the morning I blast my stereo. I need music to get the day started!
Any words of advice for other girl gamers?
Yeah - don't let anybody tell you that you can't do something, no matter what it is! If you know you can do it, just do it! Get out there and show 'em what you've got!
So true! Thanks for talking with me.
You know I'll always make time to chat, just don't ever ask me questions when I'm in the middle of a game! [laughs]
Don't you worry, I know better then that!
Talk to you later, Ella! I've got practicing to do!
Saving the planet? Piece of cake, as long as her outfit's coordinated!
Known for her sharp skills at puzzle games, Mika has wowed audiences worldwide with her lightning-fast puzzle-blasting abilities. She's won multiple World Championships, and her gaming trophy shelf is full. Mika's got an eye for clothes and fashion, and next to gaming there's nothing she loves more than shopping! Mika can often be spotted at the latest fashion shows in Paris or New York, and when she's not working she can usually be found at the shoe store!
Ella here! I'm chatting with AGA's stylish puzzle queen, Mika!
Mika, you've traveled all over the world showing off your gaming skills. What do you like best about traveling?
Well, we have an awesome manager, Frank, who makes sure we're at the hottest events and always plans fun stuff for us to do. We have a lot of long days when we're on tour, but I always make time for a bit of shopping, and catch a fashion show if I can! I love keeping up with the latest trends all over the world!
Did you always want to be in the spotlight?
I always knew I'd be famous! I've wanted to be a fashion designer for as long as I can remember, and I think I'd be good at it, so I knew I'd see my name in lights one way or another. I still want to do that one day. But being a famous gamer is pretty awesome too!
How did you get into gaming?
My dad bought me a video game console for my birthday one year. I was secretly super-mad because I really wanted a new purse! But then I tried the game, and I was hooked. I've been a gamer ever since, and it turns out I'm really good at it. It wasn't long before I was playing in competitions and winning!
What do you do for fun when you're not playing games?
I keep a scrapbook of fashion and design ideas, so I go through magazines and clip out things I like. I'm into art, so I draw a lot, and when I have time I paint once in a while. I also take a yoga class - it helps me relax!
Do you have a crush on anyone?
Nah. I don't have time for a boyfriend now, but when I do get one, he'll have to be really cool. A movie star or a musician would be good! And he'll have to have good style.
What's your favorite thing to eat?
I love pizza! And cinnamon rolls...mmm! I tried putting them together once. Bad idea.
What do you like doing with the girls?
Shopping! Did I mention I love shopping? I'd say I love shopping too much, but I don't think there's such thing as too much when it comes to shoes! The last trip I had to stop shopping for clothes and start looking for suitcases to carry them in. Now I collect suitcases!
What was your last argument about?
We don't really argue that much - the girls are cool, we've been best friends forever! I guess I get cranky with Yuki sometimes because she's so cautious, she's always thinking so hard about everything! Jessy's the opposite, she just jumps right into things without thinking at all! But they're both like sisters to me, and I know I can tell them anything.
Lots of girls look up to you. Do you have any advice for your fans?
Follow your dreams! My motto is "If you can dream it, you can do it." Work hard, but don't forget to have fun every day!
That's great advice. Thanks for talking with me, Mika!
Underneath her calm, quiet shell, Yuki's mind is a force to be reckoned with!
Yuki is AGA's quick-witted, brainy gamer girl. When she's playing a strategy game that puts her mind in gear, Yuki's unbeatable! Smart and sassy, Yuki knows a thing or two about being a celebrity, but she's also down-to-earth, and always stops to think before she dives into a new adventure. She's having a blast traveling the world with her two best friends and enjoying her newfound gamer fame.
Ella here! Guess what? I'm sitting next to Yuki, AGA's super-smart video game champ!
Yuki, you're one of the best girl gamers in the world. When did you start playing, and what helped you get so good?
It feels like I've been playing games forever! My parents always checked that my homework was done before I could play, and I worked really hard on my schoolwork so I could spend as much time as I could playing games. I wasn't good at them right away, so the key for me was practice. With lots of practice, I just got better and better!
What kind of games do you like best?
Strategy games! I love anything that involves planning and thinking things out. The other girls say I think too hard about things sometimes, but that's what makes me so good at it!
What do you to do pass the time while you're traveling?
I love reading - books, magazines, comics, anything I can get my hands on! I think all that reading helps keep my mind going.
What's your favorite food?
Breakfast cereal! I can eat it at any time of day. I always have a box in my bag when we travel.
What's Frank like as a manager?
He's great, and he doesn't have a big head like a lot of other gaming managers. He really knows how to look out for us, and he lets us be ourselves... Sometimes he gets crazy ideas, though, especially when it comes to our stage costumes. Frank's got no fashion sense!
What really gets on your nerves?
Playing action games against Jessy! She wins every time, and then brags about it for hours! It's so annoying, especially when you're the one who has to sit next to her on a flight to Japan!
Do you usually get along with Jessy and Mika?
Oh, yes! Of course we bug each other sometimes, but we don't really have big fights, and if we argue we usually make up right away. They're my best friends ever!
Do you have any crushes?
Um...yeah, maybe... I'm actually pretty shy when it comes to boys, though. The other girls tease me all the time about my blushing!
Who do you have a crush on?
[Yuki blushes] I'll tell you later!
What kind of movies do you like?
I like romantic comedies and cartoons - anything that makes me laugh. I don't like scary movies, after I watch one I have to leave the lights on so I can get to sleep!
And finally, do you have any advice for other girl gamers?
Learn everything you can! If I hadn't studied so hard at school, I wouldn't be nearly as good at game strategy. I learn new things whenever I get a chance because you never know when it might come in useful!
Well, thanks so much for chatting with me!
No problem, Ella! You're awesome!
thats it plese write coments and dont ask why i didnt put color to the last one! i didnt beacuse i was tired of putting it over and over! >_<
