Post your main party! The more the merrier!

1660364685038.png

Here's my gang! Charon, Denzel, Nyangela and Poisson!

  • Charon: Technically \n[1] - put your name here, experience INTENSE STORY TELLING and make BIG CHOICES!
  • Denzel: Fantasy cop! Here to train \n[1], stone cold badass, kind of a hothead. Loveable, loyal, loves duty.
  • Nyangela: Not a catgirl; a cat-woman. Family-focused, loves magic and science. Not to be messed with.
  • Poisson: Thieves' Guild member, gambling addict, little bit judgemental, would rather never go underground.
Who are your main characters? What makes them who they are, how do they get on, where are their confict points?

I wanna know! :D

Mine are basically my friends and me in a fantasy-modern world. It's mainly for personal therapy as my friends are either super busy or live so far away, so this is my way of having us all together.

Player Characters.png
From left to right:

Lily (aka me): Elf. A retired magical girl who's obsessed with fairies. Works as a journalist at the local paper.

Pedrig: My fiance. An imp; part of the demons Lily once fought. Now works at a tech company called "Looksie."

Rynn: Childhood friend. Cat girl. Is very good at cosplay. Lives in an apartment above a club.

Setsuna: Childhood friend. Lives in a mushroom with her boyfriend. A user of the arcana.

Star: Good friend. Is great with tools. Is a giant troll - like the internet kind. Owns a local internet cafe, actually.

Ydoc: Good friend. Became a skeleton on accident while experimenting with necromancy.

Katara: Good friend. Cat girl. A very quirky ninja.

Bea: Good friend. Panda girl. Works as a reporter for the local news. Lives on a farm with her half-boar husband and step-son.

Apple: Internet friend. Loves drawing. Lives in a literal apple tree and is interested in aliens.

Leaf: Good friend. Extremely emo. Lives in a messy condo and works at a thrift store for the rich.

Grim: Setsuna's boyfriend, so he also lives in a giant mushroom. He works as a tech person for some company.

Rose: Internet friend and Star's good friend. She loves the color green and is a popular idol.

These are the only three I've started to flesh out so far, but I present Olesya, Rini, and Tomas.

Olesya: A stranger to the world she's been dropped into, and the player character. Kind of a silent protagonist, but you do get to hear her voice through the quest journal. The only actor the player has any sort of control over, being able to configure her class and equipment.

Rini: A fiery, headstrong herbalist, Rini is well-versed in herbalism, alchemy, and a handful of ancient arts. Although her abilities are primarily support in nature, she's always itching for a fight and not afraid to show it. Fiercely loyal, and never afraid, you definitely want her on your side.

Tomas: A highly competent duelist, Tomas always has his rapier at his side. Although you'd scarcely find any fencer as skilled as Tomas, he is severely lacking in confidence. He enjoys his swordplay as an artform, but actively avoids conflict -- that is, until his friends need aid.

The following are the playable cast of Red Nova.

nancy.png

Nancy
A socially isolated and chronically lonely cyberneticist renowned for her paper written on the Alveare Hive at the Space Corp Academy. Though initially a science officer on the Interstellar Commonwealth's flagship, a temporal incursion results in her shifting into a worldline where she never received her commission and instead works at Earth's foremost robotics institute as a research scientist.

alvearequeen.png

Alveare Queen
The one who is many, the Alveare Queen is the central processing unit for the bionic collective known as the Alveare Hive. The galaxy's Public Enemy no.1 at the start of the game, a temporal incursion changes her fortunes for the worse as the military AI & bleeding edge mecha R-4 is deployed as the Interstellar Commonwealth's trump card in this altered worldline.

seraph.png

Seraph
A notorious space pirate who Nancy is forced to join forces with in order to acquire weapons for her captain in case a diplomatic mission with the Alveare goes sideways, Seraph has their concerns about a certain figure in a crimson cloak & mask who is attending the black market auction looking for mecha specs left over from an ancient precursor civilization. Though their time with Nancy is brief, worldline convergence will likely cause them to cross paths with her once more in the altered history.

coutz.png

Coutz
A temporal physicist from the Xelim Imperium located on the other side of the galaxy. Seeks out Nancy's assistance in the altered worldline to bring the Alveare Queen out of safe mode following her narrow escape from the AI R-4 who went rogue immediately following a conclusive Alveare defeat. Hopes to blackmail the Alveare Queen into helping him travel back to R-4's creation after his time ship was damaged in a battle with said AI in an apocalyptic future.

My party as follows (Spoiler)

1. Reyes
1660394642012.png
Came from a doctor family, He's a talented doctor, and your only natural healer in the game,
highly intelligence and a bit serious at some times. Reyes' ambition is to cure a mysterious illness that
ravages his home, That's the beginning of his adventure with his unexpected friend(s).

2. Alicia
1660394668939.png
A noble lady from a higher class of society. Even though she's rich, she wants to travel for some reasons, most likely in search of her heirloom. She even has her own guild and ready to spend anything for her inheritance.

3. Charles
1660394691485.png
Alicia's mercenary, Charles is a cool guy, he loves to tease women with a good sense of humor, and sometimes he's a bit rude and secretive about his personal life. But he does his job as a mercenary and loyal to the guild. Hooray!

4. Paula
1660394774578.png
Paula's life as a travelling merchant, Nothing much info about Paula's personal life, and she's a strange girl with a strange way of talking, and she's most likely a girl with amnesia-- who wants to find the truth about herself. Could it be she's linked with beginning of the "mysterious illness"? We never know.

5. Sofie
1660394994677.png
The youngest of the gang. Well educated but inexperienced. Reyes' sister best friend who actually wants to enroll alchemy courses. Sofie's always thinking that it's unfortunate to get involved in Reyes' adventure.


6. Dwyn
1660395182397.png
The oldest of the gang, know as his reputation as the bandit hunter. He's a mute person, unable to speak. Despite his weakness, he's still a powerful man who can defeats bandits as easy, that makes Alicia's interested in joining him as an official guild member. Can Reyes cure his muteness?

These are not the stars of my first game, but I have them around as placeholders while I test out animations and the like. They will have their own game and with their own custom sprites, but that would be further down the line.

theteamintro.jpg

From left to right:
  • Marx: ATK > DEF > MAT > MDF > AGI > LUK
    De facto leader of the team and its generalist. Likes to spring into action, so he is also the de facto tank.

  • Lance: AGI > ATK > LUK > MAT > DEF > MDF
    Primary striker. Deceptively carefree, he can be as serious as the job demands it.

  • Gunny: MAT > ATK > LUK > AGI > MDF > DEF
    Weapon Master and designated artillerist of the team. Always ready for a fight, and always eager to win.

  • Nick: LUK > MDF > MAT > DEF > ATK > AGI
    Primary healer and support. No-nonsense almost to a fault, but just as reliable if not more.

From left to right.

The one on the left isn't really a party member, but her name is Saedra. She's a powerful sorceress.
Can't say much else for now. XD (no she's not the villain)

dw7zZmq.png


Ashlyn is a brave ex-knightress who is searching for her lost twin brother. She's rather brash, rough and tumble, difficult to deal with. She absolutely HATES magic and rain. She has a heart of gold, though, and can't stand to see others done wrong. There is a lot more to say, but I can't go spoiling XD

odD1WCt.png


Lizzabelle is the polar opposite of Ashlyn. She's a passive mage who is sworn to a mantra to never use magic to harm any living being. Not even bacteria. She can come off as a bit ditsy and clumsy, but she's actually incredibly intelligent. While she doesn't fight in battles, Ashlyn has her unwavering support. Again, can't say much more without spoiling half the story XD

Not pictured is Suki, a teenage thief who loves to get into trouble. That statement is not meant to be sarcastic. She and Ashlyn have quite the feud together, and Lizzabelle is frequently tasked with separating their them from squabbling. Her end goal isn't quite written yet.

Also not pictured is Ashton, Ashlyn's MIA twin brother. He's very stoic and strong. Many have reported seeing him, but none have found him...

Roth.png
Roth
Self-proclaimed God of Thunder. Always on the search for a new adventure and more treasure. He's not very reliable as he does what he wants, and does things his own way. Usually, he'll help out people in need (not necessarily to be a good guy, but for the adventuring experience or possible rewards), but sometimes he's a just a jerk.

Thieme.png
Thieme
Younger brother of Roth. The rational guy who likes to think things through before taking action. Likes to fight honourable, according to his own rules and will become pissed off if somebody breaks any of those rules (usually at Rage in a sparring match). Also tends to sleep way too much and it's almost impossible to wake him up once he starts taking a nap.

Rage.png
Rage
Abandoned by his parents at a very young age for burning down the house and being impossible to manage by "normal people". Was found wandering around in the forest on his own by Roth and Thieme who invited him to live at their house (who, by the way are also parentless). The 2 brothers seem to be the only ones who can kind of control Rage's temper. Despite his hotheadedness and lust for battle, he's really a good guy.

Eldin.png
Eldin
For her entire life, books were the only window into the outside world for her. That was until Roth broke into her house (for adventuring reasons unrelated to her...) The 2 quickly became friends, and she took up Roth's invitation to join him on his adventure. Much to the dismay of her father of course, but she left before there was anything he could do to stop her. She's very curious about a lot of things in the world, but very knowledgeable in a way as well, thanks to all the reading she did in her childhood.

At the moment I've got three main characters:

Akane.png
Akane
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Usable Weapons: Sword, Athame
An impulsive girl with a loud mouth. Capable of using basic fire magic. Strong and skilled with the sword, but not very smart. Her rash behaviour often results in unnecessary fights.
Offensive skillset.

Aoi.png
Aoi
Alignment: Lawful Good
Usable Weapons: Tome, Staff, Athame
A veteran adventurer with approximate knowledge of many things. Talented in water and ice magic. He is often the voice of reason in the group.
Defensive/supportive skillset.

Midori.png
Midori
Alignment: Neutral
Usable Weapons: Bow, Staff, Athame
An insomniac fairy who just wants to sleep. The last surviving fairy of a horrible war that destroyed her home. Cynical and pessimistic, with a strong sense of duty.
Balanced skillset.

Fun fact: Their names mean 'Red', 'Blue', and 'Green' respectively - the three primary colours of light. I like theme naming.

Whooo, first to post RTP faces! (plus my other games don't quite have character descriptions for their parties yet)

DraxusFace.png
Draxus: A young adult living in Mountain Village, he’s more interested in books and stories than real life. When not working in the local copper mine, he reads, writes letters to his pen pal, or listens to the war stories of his nearby neighbor. Lacking self confidence, he relies on self-reflection and inner debates to make important decisions, even if the conclusion is wrong.
JosephFace.png
Joseph: Another young adult and fellow miner living in Mountain Village, Joseph is Draxus' best friend. He’s generally jovial, likes to crack jokes, and drink. Unlike Draxus, he prefers to wing it and experience life to the fullest. However, if someone insults him or his friends, he loses his temper easily, and won’t hesitate to tell others when he doesn’t like something.
RalirFace.png
Ralir: A Mage Knight who serves at Battle Castle, Ralir is considered a good but emotionally distant leader. He spends his free time studying historical texts, walking around in nearby forests, or teaching Mage Order recruits at Battle Castle. While he appears stoic, he bottles up his true feelings until they can’t be contained any longer.

Other: There's another party member who gets added later on in the Battle Castle Story, but I haven't fleshed them out yet. Who they are depends on what your Corruption level is at that point.

What a fun topic! Love seeing others' line-ups. Here's mine as well.

noein.png
Noein: Kind, soft-spoken, and always a bit nervous. Noein is an orphan, found in the snow with no memory when he was very young. Decades pass, yet Noein barely ages. He's probably not a human, but doesn't show the magical prowess associated with Valkari either. In his dreams a Goddess appears--a Goddess who shares his face.

kaya.png
Kaya: A cold and ruthless super-soldier for the Veritian Empire and one of their elite Zodiac Knights, the Virgo Knight. Kaya was taken by the Empire at a young age during one of their campaigns against Valkari and is one of the very last survivors of her kingdom. When a magical situation traps Kaya and Noein together, protecting the boy brings out her softer side. However, feelings take a back seat to the darkness harbored in the heart of the untouchable knight. [Noein's love interest option number 1.]


vosyk.png
Vosyk: A strange Valkari with a duplicitous nature. Is he friend or foe? Whatever the case, he seems oddly interested in Noein's movements, inserting himself into the party to stay by Noein's side. However, a man like this can't be fully trusted; he speaks in riddles and smells of blood. Not to mention, his reputation as the Scorpio Knight of Veritia is one of excessive cruelty. [Noein's love interest option number 2.]

Minuet.png
Minuet:
A hot-headed, conflicted young girl. After learning she is not fully human but instead half-Valkari, Minuet is rejected by the man she called 'father' and is forced out of her home. With nowhere to go and a boiling magic threatening to explode, Minuet tags along with the party and finds in her new friends the love she lacked in her childhood home.

Lars.png
Lars: (Without his face art yet, poor thing.) Lazy, selfish, and spoiled. Lars may act like a low-life, but he was once the crown prince of great human Kingdom of Aldrose. When Aldrose fell, wiped off the map by the Veritian Empire, Lars made a magical blood pact to keep himself alive long enough to see Veritia fall too. What's he done with all those extra years? Unfortunately, mostly the same thing he did before the pact: drinking and gambling.



This crew has so many secrets and hidden agendas. They betray and break each other's hearts in so many ways, but always end up back together. I love these guys. :LZSproud:

So far there's only two party members in the current playable game.

Gordan New after start.png
Gordan (the MC): His memory was erased due to a traumatic event, and is trying to regain it with the help of a freelancer group known as the Vigil.

Generally, he's a fast learner and is adept in combat due to muscle memory. He's not afraid to ask questions and adapts to current needs.

(I can't tell much background information without it being a spoiler for the plot.)


Derek.png
Derek: He is one of five members of the Vigil who finds Gordon passed out in an alley at the start of the game.

He grew up on the tough love of the street, and that makes him rather pragmatic and down to earth, even a bit cynical. He doesn't take sh** from anyone and has no issues voicing his opinions. He's very loyal to the other members of the Vigil and will help solve any problem that arises.

He has Crystal Technology Magnifier Cyberoptics (and can get more cyberware later).


Temporary (but important) Party Members

Sly.png
Sly:
He is another member of the Vigil, and acts as their cybernet systems guru. He has a knack for breaking through intrusion countermeasure electronics and finding side jobs for the Vigil.

He was an addict to a synthetic drug known as Amber Fume (which was chemically derived from a failed cosmetic), due to work related stress at his Father's software corporation. After a very heated argument, there was a schism and he went separate ways from his Father. He was nearly killed for spare change while in a drug fueled haze, and this lead him to quitting his addiction cold turkey. He joined the Vigil soon afterward to help rebuild his life.

Sly tends to be emotionally stable to an extreme, even in highly stressful circumstances (due to to the drug abuse causing a permanent chemical imbalance in his brain). His quick thinking and focusing on the facts at hand help keep situations from becoming worse.

He also has Crystal Technology Magnifier Cyberoptics and a Sanguiware Neural Processor.

OOH, I love this thread.
So, my party consists of 5 characters and a dragon. My descriptions of them might be a little outdated, so I'm going to just type them in here. These are the portraits that are used in the menu scene, *not* the ones that are used for dialogue, as these ones are a bit newer.
actor11.png

Age: 15

Rikuto is the "hero" of our story. Really, he's just a young man dealing with depression... and trying to rule a kingdom.
When the story begins, he's deep into a depressive episode. The game centres around trying to make the best decisions for his mental health, and his castle.

Design:
I have gone through so many iterations of the characters, it's insane. Rikuto's design is meant to look like your typical sword wielding protagonist, just with a constant unimpressed look. He carries his diary in his hands, as he loves to write. In the game, you will see his diary entries as a means of conveying his thoughts and a bit of his backstory. He wears a piece of cloth on his head that was from his mother's dress. She wore the colours of each of the 3 Isles, as a peace treaty. This particular cloth was her treaty towards Kemono, which was sported by her just before the war against the Kemono. Rikuto wears comfy, casual attire, which is often insulted by people because it makes him look like a servant.

actor12.png
Age: About 17

Shun is Rikuto's advisor and only friend. He originates from a foreign land where he was a warrior with his brother. Unfortunately, due to disagreements with the handling of religion, he and his brother left that place, and migrated. He was found as a youth, looking for his brother on the island of Ohanami, the land that Rikuto rules over. There are some speculations that he may not be human, and is much more powerful than he seems.

Design:
So, I made Shun back when I gave literally everyone emo bangs, so that's why his hair is the way it is. I just made it look a bit more polished over the years. His outfit can be used as armour when in battle, and he carries dual-wielding katanas with him. I wanted to make him look high-class, but also somewhat foreign compared to the rest of the cast.

actor14.png
Age: ???

Unknown is a mysterious girl who appears to be around Rikuto's age, but most don't know much about her. No one really bothers to ask her name, as she only talks to her king (Rikuto). She has based her entire life around being a guardian, starting on the island of Kemono with the Yumi family, but upon getting lost when Kumiko left Kemono, she has devoted herself to protecting the castle.

Design:
I wanted to make her very flowy. Long, flowing hair, with a long cloak to add interest to her silhouette. She wears a corset as a symbol of her restriction to her duty. The diamond on her cloak is a symbol of royalty, given to her when she was taken in by the castle, many years before. You can't see from this image, but her design is mostly blues, with purple eyes. The diamond is magenta.

actor13.png
Age: 16

Kumiko is a young lady who presents as very cocky about her battle victories, but is internally battling with trauma from seeing her brother get stoned to death. She is frequently in arguments with Rikuto as he's more pacifistic and she believes that evil can't be extinguished without war. She forms a sisterly relationship with Yuutsu (more on him later) as he looks like her lost brother.

Design:
She has the design I'm probably the most proud of. She is of course part human, part cat, but her brother was definitely more cat than human. She spent her youngest years trying to protect him from the hatred he received as a result of his mutations. Due to frequent travel, she sports the colours of all of the Three Isles, with two different bows: one from when she was a child on Kemono, and one from her later years from Mazoku.

actor15.png
Age: 10

Yuutsu is the only poor individual in the party. His father is a shoemaker, his mother was a tailor. He struggles with crippling anxiety from having to pull his friend from a burning house at the age of 5. As a well-known (albeit not very skilled) thief, he is frequently caught and beaten up for his attempts at theft for the purpose of making his father happy (his father does not know that the things he keeps "finding" are stolen).

Design: I'm super proud of Yuutsu's design as well. His is the design I've changed the least over the years. He's a very scrawny child, and wears clothes that are too big for him because even though he is training to be a tailor like his mother, he just can't get the size right. He's covered in dirt because he's extremely accident-prone and falls often. On his shoulder, he carries a satchel with two knives in it, as his best friend, Doctor Mizuki, advised him he needs to start protecting himself after several brushes with death and dismemberment. He wears a hat that his mother made for him, which is the only thing he has managed to tailor to his size over the years.

actor16.png

Age: Just hatched

This is a dragon that can join your party to fight by your side in battle. He is acquired by winning a fight with his mother in the tavern. There's not much to say about him because he's technically not a character.

Other miscellaneous images of the party:

Still fleshing out characters for my game, but some of the playtesters have become attached to the ENEMIES instead, so I'm thinking about having recruitable foes later.

Currently, the characters I have are:

Zero, the Empty
1.PNG

Our unwilling protagonist, trapped inside his own creatively-bankrupt mind. Everything around him (including his own body) has become a blank, featureless sketch due to his lack of imagination and creativity. However, as he meets the others lurking in his headspace, he slowly learns how to restore the world of his mind and grow it into a lively, colorful place.

Stella, the Fantasia
2.PNG
One of the first things Zero imagines while in his mind. Although her body is initially a scribbly, unrecognizable sketch, once Zero discovers the power of Inspiration, he's eventually able to imagine a normal, functioning body for her. Enjoys the various baubles and scenery that Zero unconsciously creates whenever he thinks about anything too hard.

Peeky, the Curious
3.PNG

A water-slime spirit created by Zero's subconscious after hearing a rumor about a ghost haunting the restroom. Energetic and impulsive, but not very intelligent. Despite being extremely social, tends to clam up and cover her face when looked at directly.

Becky, the Guardian
4.PNG
A spunky golem in charge of sorting and stacking memory blocks within Zero's mind. Though she can be a bit careless sometimes, she's a hard worker and does whatever it takes to keep her friends safe.

No pictures yet... *SOBS*

Anyways...
PARTY *Members intro* TIME!!!
Norman
A 19-year-old boy with aspirations to become an author! He's always been the cautious type, but ever since the story started, he's been more outgoing... and quiet... But why? Why is he acting this way?
The protagonist of the story!
Nora
Norman's twin sister who is 5 hours and 26 minutes older than him. Very energetic, the Mabel to Norman's Dipper (Gravity Falls reference ahoy!)! But lately, she's been... more on edge... than usual.
The deuteragonist of the story!

Sosha
An adult in a child's body. They are actually the oldest in the party at 37! Loves to hunt and is fond of calling the twins their "Cubs." *But not in a sexual way! Bleh! More like a parent to their children. *
(Yes. They go by they/them pronouns.)
One of the tritagonists of the story!

Vania
A sassy preteen who actually loves to read. She was one of the people who failed out of Valorance Academy for the Magically Gifted (VAMG). Even though she failed, she still tries her hardest!
One of the tritagonists of the story!

I'll bite for fun. Especially since it was pretty interesting to read most of the other posts here.

Alex
Main character. Can't be swapped out. This is who you play as.

His best friend is Edgar and his wife is Selece. Selece is actually a General in the enemy army his country is fighting. Alex likes the feeling of always doing something. This makes him rather impulsive and impatient. He'd rather use a Short Sword than a Battle Axe because he can swing the Short Sword very fast and it keeps him moving and mobile in a fight. On top of this, he's always wanted to Slay a Dragon. Yep, Dragons have been extinct forever, but that doesn't stop him from dragging Edgar along anytime there's even a RUMOR of a Dragon living somewhere. He just wants to fight and slay a Dragon for the story of having done it. He's yet to ever find a real Dragon, but him and Edgar have debunked a LOT of rumors and hoaxes about them.

He's a soldier for the army of his country and he cares a lot about the men under his command. He's not a Leader due to rank, but by reputation and charisma. Him and Edgar often joke about how he's "such a goody two-shoes" and he'd "never do anything wrong unless it was for a good reason". Because of this, when him and Edgar get into a tight spot, they share a saying between them:

Edgar: "I'll fight the demons."
Alex: "And I'll fight the angels."

It's an admission that to know and destroy your enemy, you must BE your enemy. Edgar and Alex have their own pact that when "the good guys" get out of hand, it's Alex that is to deal with them, and when "the bad guys" get out of hand, it's Edgar's job to handle it.

Alex also carries a lot of guilt about the situations he's caused. He never really knows what to do with it, but he also doesn't really learn from having it. It just makes him feel less and less human as he rationalizes his guilt instead of confronting it.

Alex is "The Fateless" on top of all that, which means he's basically "The Chosen One", but not really. His power is simply that despite everyone in the world having a Fate... he doesn't. So, he can alter everyone's fates by interacting with them. Put simply, he's basically an agent of Chaos. Born every few hundred years or so, for reasons unknown. The spoiler isn't that he's The Chosen One. The spoiler is WHY "The Chosen One" exists at all, and what it means.

1664321587372.png
Selece
Wife of Alex. She's a "Witch". She is what is known as "An Elemental". Elementals are all women, they can use the 6 Elements freely to varying degrees of skill, and are all drafted into the army.

There are two things relatively special about her.

The first is that she lies fairly frequently. She holds the distinction of having never lied to Alex, but she is adept at telling lies and keeping them unknown.

The second is that she is the best Elemental her country has to offer. To be with Alex, she had to fake her own death in order to prevent her people from coming to look for her as well as to prevent endless reprisals from her country if she had simply married him.

Both of these play into who she is as a person. Put simply, she maintains an illusion about her at all times. See that Heavy Armor she's wearing? What mage wears heavy armor? Not her. It's what is termed "An Illio" (pronounced: E Yo). Elementals wear them sometimes to keep enemies from spotting that they're Elementals. Put simply, it keeps them from being targeted. However, Selece maintains her Illio subconsciously. It is always on. It never comes off, no matter what she's actually wearing or doing. It is on even when she sleeps. The only person who has ever seen her without that armor is Alex. Her guard only ever comes down around him.

She is battle-hardened, quick witted, and sharp tongued. Despite her high body count, it has never really changed her personality what-so-ever. Though, with her "defenses" constantly up, who, except Alex, could ever say for sure?

1664322193109.png
Edgar
Alex's best friend. He trained Alex how to fight and operate within an army.

Edgar tends to play "The Straight Man" to Alex's "Goofy Behavior", but he is not beyond making jokes of his own. He is exceptionally serious and keeps Alex grounded in most situations.

Edgar trusts Alex with his very life, but he would sacrifice Alex in an instant if it meant himself or his ideals would be saved. This is a fact he has told Alex several times and it is understood between friends.

He does not form bonds very easily and as a result he has never even courted a woman before. His stance on dating and being with a woman are that "they are too complicated" and "I don't have time for it". The reality is probably something more akin to "Just hasn't met the right woman" yet.

He was secretly trained to be a "Magic Knight" by the army and for this gift, he has sword unerring allegiance to The Kingdom. He might betray The Kingdom for the same reasons he would betray Alex. But, unless those opportunities arise, he is loyal to those two, to a fault. Only Alex even knows that Edgar is a Magic Knight, while the rest of the military must never find out.

Edgar has a deep hated for the army that Selece hails from. The enemy he so hates essentially killed many innocents and continues to do so in unforgiving ways. His main goal and motivation in life is to simply exterminate every single Elemental on the planet. You can imagine what this does to him, knowing that his best friend has married an Elemental, and only he is privy to the knowledge that she is one.

1664322747690.png
Noah
This is a Paladin who has lost his faith. He is one of two "Life" magic users in the entire world. Because his abilities are more "Offensive" in nature, he was basically turned into "an enforcer" for The Kingdom (same one Alex is part of).

Basically, he's the medieval version of "The Secret Police". If he shows up on scene, it's very serious, and it will get done. Few people know his name. Fewer still know his profession. He's seen as simply a Paladin. A "holy knight" in some regard, though his actions are far from holy.

Because of the tasks he's been asked to oversee, he has lot his faith in a great many things. He has no faith for his government, its people, or even what might pass as "God" in any religion. He wants to believe his powers and talents are good for something other than what they're being used for, but they have never served any other purpose than that.

Noah puts down the undead and is one of the few that knows why they rise. He is powerless to stop their rising and this fact has lead him to doubt a great many things in life.

Does he have loves? Hobbies? Interests? No. His life is utterly consumed by his work and his worries about the world have kept him from caring about much else.

1664323188294.png
Mark
A non-traditional thief. He was raised in the desert town of "Oasis", which is primarily home to criminals and thugs.

Mark isn't a Traditional Thief in that he doesn't steal for "monetary gain". He steals for the challenge of the theft and the potential prize. If an empty wine bottle was put under lock and key and lots of people said it was valuable and hard to obtain, even if it really wasn't... he'd go and steal it. His motto is:

"The harder something is to obtain, the more valuable it is."

As a result of this motto, he's been all over the world and stolen all manner of things. Sometimes he holds onto the things he steals, and sometimes he gets rid of them. If a thing loses value while he has it, he discards it. After all, stealing an item that was once valuable, but no longer is valuable, means that theft is no longer valuable or interesting.

His latest challenge is attempting to steal the heart of the Elven Princess. She is deemed by her people to be their one and only treasure. It is also widely known by the Elves that "she cannot be stolen". When Mark heard these things from some Elves trying to dissuade him from looting some ruins they were guarding, he made it his mission to steal her. But, the game is meaningless to him if he just picks her up and runs off with her. However, stealing her indifferent heart is a suitable challenge.

1664323699037.png
Harold
Mark's father. Harold is "The fatherly type" to everyone he meets. He's older than he cares to admit and is a seasoned Pirate. The problem is that he's only a "pirate" in that he steals from ships when he's paid to do so and transports illegal cargo for the same reason. His first and only love is "The Sea" and any chance he gets, he prefers to be on it.

The goggles that he wears are a personal invention of his. They exist purely to keep the spray from his eyes during rough weather or choppy waves. He's named them "Eyepros" for reasons known entirely to him, and almost nobody agrees that's a good name for them.

He acts purely as a mentor figure for everyone younger than him and he is estranged from his son. He has never taken part in the life of his son and for good reason. The Kingdom contracted Harold under blackmail to do a job for them. That job meant he had to put his son in hiding and cut ties with him in order to keep his son from leading the same life he lead and making the same mistakes. Namely, getting involved in The Kingdom and being a public figure well known to everyone.

He's the best at what he does and he has a line for every situation. It doesn't hurt that most of those lines are probably taken from the religion he practices which is known typically as "The Children of Aethral". However, he actually worships an older version of that religion that was passed from Sailor to Sailor known simply as "Kelris".

The rest of the cast look up to him and respect him greatly, even if he isn't sure how to act toward his son. A son that didn't fall too far from the tree and has essentially become the things he didn't want his son to be.

1664324266317.png
Lydia
The worlds' first and only "Cleric". She would probably specialize in "Healing", if there were such a thing. Alas, her power is limited to removing some forms of ailment from people. Poisons, burns, and things of that nature. If you scrape your knee, she can't help you. If you catch the Flu, she'll ask you why you think she can help.

Lydia is two things that a Cleric should probably never be. She's cynical and she doesn't heal for free.

Lydia trades her services to people who need them for things she needs to survive. She turned down ever serving in the army of The Kingdom, but that Kingdom still protects her since she is the second person in the entire world that has "Life" magic. She travels around, essentially doing "missionary work" and to keep her on their side, The Kingdom allows her to do what she wants "within reason" as well as protects her when she gets into trouble.

Lydia is the youngest of the bunch, but probably also the most "world weary". She has seen all the pain and suffering people cause on a constant basis and has taken a view on History and Humanity that isn't very pleasant. She is the "voice of reason" within the party as well as "the reality check" for almost every member of it. She is also a very skilled manipulator. She is so skilled, in fact, that she's known to "talk down bandits". Or, rather, "defeat bandits by just talking to them". She makes shrewd deals all the time and revels in the act of making those deals. It is one of the few joys in the world she has.

1664324748603.png
Angela
Queen of the Elves. The most treasured possession of the entire country. She is worth more than all other Elves combined.

But why?

She cured her people of "The Nature". Her people lived in the woods so long that they had all become "beast people". Through a ritual she'd managed to divine, she got her people transformed back into humans... with the exception of their Ears. She told them that they would keep their ears as a reminder of their transgressions and what had turned them into Beasts to begin with.

Since that event, she's done little more than languish away her days in the castle. Bored. Annoyed. Everyone and everything is so predictable. She knows what you're going to do long before you do. She knows your motivations before you ever realize them. The world spins and she's bored with it all.

Until she meets Mark.

Mark wants to steal her and she's pretty sure she can't even feel love. How could one feel love when they can't ever be surprised? When everyone and their motives are so predictable?

So, her and Mark come up with their own game. Angela doesn't even know what she looks for in a partner, so the game starts simple. Mark wants "a place to start" winning her heart, so she proposes a simple challenge.

"Let's discover what I look for in a partner together."

The game's rules are simple:
"Each week, I will give you a challenge. Complete it by midnight on the final day or I will tell my guards to kill you on sight. Maybe by passing my challenges each week, we'll discover what I want in a partner together."

So, what's the first challenge she set him to?

"Surprise me. Give me something or do something to surprise me."

Angela wishes for a world where things no longer surprise her. Where she can begin to care again. So, she puts her hope in Mark to find that for her. Whether they'll actually fall in love with each other? Who knows? Probably not. But, maybe they don't need love to be together.

24_hours_Menu_Image1.pngThis one is pretty early in development, and the 5th party member is not yet listed or even in the game yet. Here is what is known:

Martin: Age: 21. Works in town as a medic at the Science school in town. Leader of the team.

Ellie: Age: 20. Childhood friend of Martins, but she left town when she turned 18 to be a musician. She is back in town for a festival when the events of the game start.

Clarissa: Age 22. She works as a researcher at the Science school in town. She and Martin know each other due to work, though do not know each other well.

Damien: Age 23. He is the prince of the town, and gets involved with the party when he gets injured and Clarissa takes him to Martin for treatment. Ellie happens to be there too, and that is how the party of four gets formed.

The not shown party member:

Xander: Age unknown. Xander is a ghost that finds the party after the early events of the game, but needs a body to help them. Once the party finds the body Xander joins as a party member.

The entire game has just this party of 5 in it. A couple unique details is Ellie's attacks uses guitars which hit all enemies, and Clarissa's attacks use guns, which ignore defense. Xander is the tank once they join.

Game is in super early development though so some details are still being ironed out. But that is the early details at least.

@bgillisp I like the characters, and the art is nice, but I just can't seem to see their faces as being 20+, LOL. I don't know if it's the art style, but they look about 15.

@HexMozart88 : Age is hard to tell honestly in RL. I know one lady who still looks like she is under 18. She's in her 30s. And she is mad she gets carded all the time. Even been accused of having a fake ID as they are like there is no way you are in your 30s.

But overall, their age is also not a factor into the story outside of Ellie left town for 2 years and came back so it can be edited as well later on. I just picked an approx for the write up here for now as this story is so early WIP that anything could change still.

Mad O' Malley... a stick figure that's afraid of it's existence being erased. so they always start battle in an anxious state.
Before, I was drawing all the sprite work, super big and shrinking it down. Which was really time consuming if thing's changed. So instead I'm drawing the characters sketch, and then remaking it with pixel art instead.
Why are job interviews so terrifying. :kaodes:
