This is a page about να-τιδ, a dimension created by Wikikinetic


να-τιδ (anglicized as VA-TIO) is the home dimension of the majority of my characters, some of Lucentstar's characters, and a couple of each of Max's and Skyblade's characters. It's also where my roleplay, The Curse of Day, takes place. This dimension is fairly similar to our world, as well as sharing several traits with many other dimensions, although it notably does not include Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends except as video game characters. This article will list all important, mentioned, named locations that I can think of in this dimension.

Westopolis

A remarkably peaceful and well-organized city. Although threats to the city occasionally occur, the strong GUN presence in the city takes care of those threats, allowing Westopolis's civilians to enjoy a much more peaceful existence than they could obtain in many other places in να-τιδ.

Sunset Heights

A coastal town divided into three distinct bits: the semi-affluent Park Avenue, the somewhat impoverished and mostly unpopulated Ghost Town; and the somewhat-more-average Red Gate Bay. Each of the parts and its residents are detailed below.

Red Gate Bay

The busiest and most populated part of the town. This is not saying much, since the town isn't terribly active at any time, but Red Gate Bay, being the part of the town that's actually touching the coast, has occasional visitors from overseas or the like, which makes things a bit more interesting in Red Gate Bay than in other parts of Sunset Heights. Red Gate Bay is also easily the most technologically advanced part of the city. For a number of reasons, some of which are stated here, it's semi-popular with families.

Notable Former Residents

Anyone can have lived here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here.

  • Jack the Porcupine, formerly one of the resident highschool bullies. He left to college and hasn't returned here since. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Adelaide the Flamingo, a fairly unremarkable neighborhood kid until she was offered a scholarship to the Kaio-Ken Fighting Academy, a prestigious boarding high school. She came back for the summers, but after she graduated she moved away. Owned by Lucentstar.

Ghost Town

A shady bit of Sunset Heights. It's neglected, out-of-the-way, and doesn't really get many residents, which is why it's colloquially called Ghost Town. Most of the residents are only here because they want to access Red Gate Bay's amenities but can't afford the price of living there.

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here.

  • Jack the Porcupine, a former highschool bully who moved here after suffering a traumatic college experience elsewhere. He's mostly here because he's basically a drifter at the moment, so he vaguely feels like he belongs here (even though he's never really thought that through). Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Riley the Jackal, a mysterious man with teleportation powers. Owned by Wikikinetic.

Park Avenue

An upscale, residential part of the city that's removed from all of the hustle and bustle of Red Gate Bay. Its detachment from Red Gate Bay allows its houses to stay quaint and expansive without the need to modernize everything and make everything smaller but more productive (which Red Gate Bay suffers from), while not being affected by Ghost Town's general state of disrepair. This makes Park Avenue the perfect home for those who want peace, quiet, and a lot of space to stretch out. This place is mostly occupied by older folks or sometimes by affluent families.

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here. As of right now, there are no notable residents of Park Avenue.

Platinum City

A high-tech city, and the location of many technological advancements. Niki the Polar Bear came here to gain her prosthetic limbs (which Nickel gave to her) and learned about modern technology and culture here as well.

Cobalt and Anthracite Villages

Cobalt Village and Anthracite Village are two small villages situated in the middle of a plain. The villages are somewhat out-of-date in comparison with modern society, as the villages barely ever make contact with the outside world, with the exception of each other. The names of the two villages come from the fact that both are situated near fairly similar mines, where the main difference between the two mines is that Cobalt Village's mine produces a lot of cobalt, whereas Anthracite Village's mine produces a lot of anthracite.

The two villages are usually at peace with each other. However, wars between the two do occur occasionally, given that the two villages are very close to each other, yet remain separate entities, allowing rifts to occur between the two. The most recent war between the two lasted about 9 years, starting when Niki the Polar Bear was 5 years old and ending when she was 14 years old. The war was preceded by increasing hostility between the two villages, but the occurrence that actually started the war was when some of Anthracite Villagers hired a certain assassin to kill Iris the Ibex's parents, who were from Cobalt Village. The war was ended after the Anthracite Villagers who provoked the war were killed (among others) and the leader of Anthracite Village surrendered to Cobalt Village. As of now, the two villages are once again at peace with each other.

Notable Residents

Please ask me, Wikikinetic, if you want your character to live in Cobalt Village or Anthracite Village. If I say yes, you can add your character to the appropriate list below.

Cobalt Villagers

  • Niki the Polar Bear, a strong-willed wandering hero with prosthetic enhancements (courtesy of Nickel). Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Iris the Ibex, Niki's perpetually concerned younger sister whose physical weakness belies her significant healing skills. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Nickel Zenjumine, a scientist hedgewolf from Platinum City fascinated with cybernetics and trying to use his wisdom with cybernetics to help his son. Owned by MaxIrvaron.
  • Dimend Zenjumine, Nickel's son whose body was ravaged in an accident. Rebellious, but always true to his father, and never gives up on his goals. Owned by MaxIrvaron.

Anthracite Villagers

As of right now, there are no notable residents of Anthracite Village.

West Side Island

In medieval times, West Side Island was cut off from the rest of the world. During its centuries of isolation, West Side Island became a pioneer in steampunk technology. However, when it came into contact with the rest of the world during its last century, causing its citizens to discover more modern, electricity-powered technology, the island fell into physical and social decay, as its technology was now hopelessly obsolete. Despite this, people continue living there, and, as such, it has become somewhat more modernized, but the antiquated infrastructure of the island's technology and politics continues to crumble.

Metropolis

Both the hub of the island's activity and a perfect metaphor for the state of the island, Metropolis's living conditions vary widely, ranging from the fairly well-respected Viridian College to the shady Rotary Depths. The island's general poor reputation makes Metropolis a relatively cheap place to live, both boosting the advantages of living in its nicer areas and driving more unwitting people to its worse areas.

Metropolis Central

As the name states, this is the center of activity for Metropolis. It's full of activity, as well as being full of lots of conveniences, like sellers of all sorts of rare goods, but it also has its fair share of thieves who are just waiting for their opportunity to steal some of those commodities, so the area is not without its drawbacks (and indeed, for some, the drawbacks might be greater than the advantages).

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here.

  • Kara the Dolphin, a Wisp breeder and experimenter who uses the fact that she lives here as an excuse to perform all sorts of tests that would be highly noticeable anywhere else. The oldest sister of the Seldon family. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Eric the Dolphin, an apathetic mercenary with an unusually hard adherence to the law. Kara's younger brother. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Caleb the Dolphin, a fairly considerate tech whiz who's made engineering marvels bordering on magic. The middle kid of the Seldon family. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Lia the Dolphin, a nice but shy girl with a surprisingly large attachment to her older brother, Caleb. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Mireya the Dolphin, the artificially created little kid of the Seldon family with a lot to prove. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Yarden the Dolphin, a mechanic-turned-mercenary who now does jobs with his son, Eric. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Anar the Dolphin, the matriarch of the Seldon family. Owned by Wikikinetic.
Notable Former Residents

Anyone can have lived here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here.

  • Bopha the Hedgehog, a kid who lived here with his parents until they were murdered, at which point he moved out to the Rotary Depths to support himself via thievery. Owned by Wikikinetic.

Viridian College

One of the nicer areas of Metropolis, Viridian College has managed to make a name for itself as one of the few actually decent places in Metropolis. That and its low admission fees compared to similar colleges brings in a lot of bright students to the college.

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here. Note, though, that since this is a college, only college students or staff members should live here except in highly unusual circumstances.

  • Quintessa the Bat, a five-personality, five-form being, one of whose forms, Tess the Bat, was a college student here before being transformed into Quintessa and still attends college here despite her others forms' presence. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Kara the Dolphin, a Wisp breeder and experimenter who attends college here because it's close to home, allowing her to reap the benefits of her home city while still attending college. Best friends with Kim. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Kim the Ferret, a hardcore gamer who attends college here and is best friends with Tess and Kara. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Akura the Wolffox, a slightly insecure boxing-lover who attends college here. Owned by MaxIrvaron.
Notable Former Residents

Anyone can have lived here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here. Note, though, that, just like with the current residents, since this is a college, only college students or staff members should have lived here except in highly unusual circumstances.

  • Jack the Porcupine, a former bully whose experiences here with hazing in a local fraternity caused him to leave six months into his freshman year, sending him on a path to becoming a better person. Jack was also a friend of Rift (one of Quintessa's forms) while here. Owned by Wikikinetic.

Rotary Depths

Beneath Metropolis, there is a lot of dilapidated machinery that nobody pays attention to keeping in good shape any more. In and amongst this machinery is the Rotary Depths, a thriving community of people who only live there either because they're too poor to live elsewhere or because they make a living off of stealing from these people.

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here. As of right now, there are no notable residents of the Rotary Depths.

Notable Former Residents

Anyone can have lived here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here.

  • Bopha the Hedgehog, a thief who moved here as a pre-teen after his parents were murdered so that he could support himself via thievery. After five years of living here, he moved out when the Smuggler's Alliance noticed and recruited him. Owned by Wikikinetic.
  • Ethan the Hedgefox, a crystal-manipulating boy who lived here for most of his childhood because this was the best his parents could afford. When he grew up, he moved to Red Gate Bay. Owned by MaxIrvaron.
  • Akura the Wolffox, Ethan's boxing-loving adopted younger sister who lived with his family for her childhood. When she went to college, she went to Viridian, which she could afford due to its low admission fees. Owned by MaxIrvaron.

South Island

An island composed of several distinct bits, each with its own environment and notable features. Areas include:

Starlight City

A busy and technologically advanced city, notable for its many lights at all hours of the day (hence the name) and its striking buildings, which are, for the most part, either a green metal (usually found in the higher parts of the city) or red brick (most commonly found in the lower parts of the city). Starlight City is somewhat reminiscent of the real-life New York City.

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here.

  • Kashon the Mouse, a pyrokinetic G.U.N. officer. He is very dedicated to upholding the law, but his tendency to distrust strangers can cause annoyance for anyone in his environment. Owned by Wikikinetic.

Marble Ruins

An area filled with marble ruins overgrown with grass and containing lava in odd parts of the ruins. It is habitable, but is somewhat dangerous, and so is mostly unpopulated.

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, but please provide a good reason on the character's page as to why they would live in such an odd location. At the moment, there are no notable residents of Marble Ruins.

Angel Island

A floating island held in the sky by the powers of one or more magical Emeralds. The island is mostly filled with ruins of one sort or another, although it does contain some patches solely consisting of plantlife, and even boasts a few newer structures of its own.

Grand Carnival

The Grand Carnival is a renowned attraction on Angel Island. It has all the rides one would expect of an amusement park and all the acts one would expect of a circus. (Scuttlebutt has it that Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles sometimes race through the area during the night, although there is no evidence of truth in these rumors.)

Balloon Park

Balloon Park is a summer camp located within the Grand Carnival. With a theme of circus animals and an abundance of balloons and inflatable castles, it's a welcoming environment for the children who go there, their teenage camp counselors, and the couple of adults who oversee everything.

Notable Residents

Anyone can live here, you don't have to ask permission to put a character here. Note, however, that this is a summer camp, so anyone who lives here is almost certainly only a temporary resident.

Fun Facts

  • να-τιδ's name is derived from taking the letters of the word "normal", splitting them into "na" and "orml", transferring "na" directly into Greek letters, taking the sum of the ASCII values of "orml" (which comes out to 314) and turning that into a Greek three-letter string, and then attaching the "na" string (να) to the "314" string (τιδ), making να-τιδ.
  • να-τιδ is the only one of my four named dimensions that could be pronounceable as a word. In fact, in its anglicized form (vatio), it is a word in both Spanish and Galician, and in both languages, it means "watt". (This had nothing to do with why I chose the name, with the algorithm for choosing the name stated above.)
  • The name of Viridian College was inspired by this.
