Dice, Card, and Chip

Dice, Card, and Chip are three sibling characters of mine. Chip has yet to be drawn, but here's the scoop so far.
***
Dice is the youngest, seven or eight, and he's evil, self-centered, paranoid, and just your average someday-will-enslave-humanity type. He has a teddy bear that looks like it was owned by the ant-christ, sharp teeth, dark expression, and he's really fond of his little friend, dragging it around to the point of deterioration. (Chip is charged with the task of sewing it back together again.) His relationship with Card is somewhat rivalish, meaning he comes out on top sometimes, if not more, than she does. He is still trying to conquer Chip, however, but she almost always wins. He acts as if Chip is an annoyance, occassionally dealing with her bouts of affection, but he's really scheming about her demise. He also has a strange knack of finding very alien, super-advanced weapons of destruction lying around the house. Dice, at age 7, wears a shirt with two dice on them (the closest faces always add up to seven) and shorts. Socks and shoes a default. At any younger age, Dice is in overall shorts, but he still has the two dice on them. He usually has spikey hair and a very annoyed look on his face.

Card is the middle child, around twelve, and she's more or less always trying to protect herself from or get revenge on Dice. They get into fights more often than any other pairing of the three, and whenever their mom gets pulled into the mess, Dice always wins. In their disputes, Card almost always seems like she's going to win, but Dice tends to pull the rug out from under her at the last minute to claim victory. Card individually is very curious and inquisitive, the kind of child that likes taking things apart to see how they work. She likes to set traps for Dice. She wears jeans and a striped t-shirt. Shoes a default; can't see socks. Her hair is chin-length. Usually wide-eyed.

Chip is the oldest, well into her late teens if not twenty. Being the oldest, she always has the upper hand except for few times when Dice manages to out-maneuver her. She loves both her siblings, even showing Dice extreme affection when he's not being a little snot. He finds this very annoying. Chip and Card get along very well, and it's Chip that keeps the peace whenever all three of the siblings are together. She usually seems obliviously happy about things, but whenever Dice is up to his schemes, she shows us that she's really on top of everything going on. Chip is tall, a lot taller than either of the other siblings, and sometimes, whenever Dice is in the floor playing with his teddy bear, she is shown only as a pair of shoes jutting out of denim pants. Chip has long hair, and she's usually wearing a hoody, whether it's winter or summer outside. She's wide-eyed with a huge grin on her face.
