Cameo Brainstorming

Re: Cameo Brainstorming

Postby psidragon0 » Fri Apr 22, 2016 4:18 am

I've been toying with the idea of a cameo, mostly to keep myself amused while I'm stuck at home with an injured knee. Never done anything like this before so please excuse my inexperience.

Name: Ka’el Suu’gaath Jaal’darya
Gender: Transgender Male
Race: Mixed blood
Ancestry: Mother ‘lath, Father ’suu
Family: Has been unofficially adopted by one of Asira'malika’s children. Has two children who he gave birth to before transitioning.
Profession: Healer and naturalist. Specializes in aura healing and studies auras and magical traits of mana-bearing creatures. Has written books on the subject.
Mana affinity: Water, can manipulate small amounts of blood, steam or ice due to water content.
Eyes: Lime green with round pupils
Hair: Lime green with simple braid.
Size: Tall as the average female ‘lath
Physical traits: Has intentionally androgynous features. Body modifications include fur covered bat-like wings and muscular tail with a wide spade shaped tip. Has a vine tattoo around his right eye.
Weapon: Staff
Clothing: Wears a fur cloak which blends and helps hide his wings without completely covering them. Wears robes of a generic cut and fit. Has a set of air foci equipped gloves with the fingertips cut off. Sometimes wears a veil or a mask which covers his lower face.

Personality traits, quirks and flaws:
- Treats everyone equally, regardless of race, gender or rank.
- Sometimes pesters people with unusual abilities.
- loves to talk about mana affinities and abilities in mana-bearing creatures and plants. The trick is to get him to stop.
- Can be very touchy about racism and sexism. Occasionally uses his staff to express his displeasure.
- Will trade healing and some enhancements, or teach healing skills for the chance to study a rare ability or interesting aura
- Doesn’t like summoning of any kind, including traditional.

Common Phrases:
“I believe you just misspoke, would you care to rephrase that? No?” *BAM* “How about now?”

“I’m not a fan of edged weapons. I’ve stitched too many bodies together because someone didn’t keep them in their sheath”

“The best thing ever happened between me and my mother was the moment she disowned me. Now we have the best relationship: that of strangers who rarely cross each others paths.”

“I’ve had a chance to be both genders, and found they really aren’t all that different from each other. But just try and convince them of that.

“Boobs can be awkward. Glad I got rid of mine.”

“If you knew what I knew, you wouldn’t like summoning either.”

Going to have to dig for a picture of the tattoo. I drew one years ago as part of a halloween costume.

Looks ok, I don't think we've had a transgender before, not counting when Ariel shape shifts to somebody male.

You should reduce the number of quotes though. One or two will do. Choose the ones that best reflects your cameo.

Also, the bit about the mom should be included in the cameo details. Before the quote, I didn't know he hated his mom.

Alright. Looks like Al'tesh has survived this Chapter, but I figured I'd start thinking about the backup cameo idea in case he won't fit into Chapter 51.

Here's what I've got so far, using the Chapter 50 submission template.
-Name: Placeholder
-Race: Ver'drowendar
-Age: Early 200s.
-Clan/Faction: Siyah'khorshed
-Profession: Black Marketeer
-Martial ability: Undecided.
-Mana affinity: Undecided.

-Physical Appearance: Tainted Eyes. (Undecided Colour) hair, longer in the back and tied into a ponytail. Grey-brown skintone.
Appearance Reference: This with different colours.

-Personality traits: Unscrupulous and opportunistic, with a cheerfully shameless attitude. Avoids violence, but fights dirty if pushed.
-Favourite sayings: “Ask all you like. Answers cost extra." “It's so much more fun when they deserve it."
-Favourite activity: Making money.
-Favourite expression: Cheshire cat grin.
-Quirks: Totally up-front about price-gouging. Thinks idealists are adorable. Enjoys screwing over bigger assholes.
-Loyalty: Money.
-One Sentence: Money CAN buy happiness.

Suggestions?

She's a black marketeer but which black market? There are a lot of different black markets.

Yah. But, again, this is a backup cameo. So it needs to be a little flexible depending on what next chapter calls for. So "generic" Black Market, until further chapter details come forward.

What is going to appear in Chp51 anyway? I doubt a Black Sun will be able to play much of a role, if at all.

*shrug* Dunno. If Black Sun's not an option, I could switch 'em to a Sargh, ex-Vloz, etc.

Not full sheets yet, but some basic ideas of potential characters for the next chapter.

-Machtike colonist: An ex-Black Sun empath who specializes in taming animals, switched sides because the Sharen had treated she and her kin like crap. Despite being black sun, very nice and shy. Embarrassed by her black sun accent

-Nid 1: A mercenary crossbowman in the service of the Nids. Is incredibly cold and professional, having no political opinion aside from disdain for the Sarghress convincing mercs to care about causes over money. Likes to gamble, but is terrible at it.

-Nid2: A former Vlozz berserker who joined the Nids after his clan fell. Stupid and brutish even by berserker standards, he loves little more than violence and eating the flesh of his foes. Incredibly gullible.

-Nid3: A former Jie'yen who is an extremely vain thrill seeking warrior. Hates the humility of his clan, and so wears his hair extremely long, wears outlandish clothing, and challenges his foes in the open. Loves to fight other spear wielders, has a list of them he wants to fight. Freaks out if anyone touches the hair.

I like the ex-Black Sun empath, especially that can work with beasts!!!

Image
Name: Aere'laan Val Kyorl'solenurn
Job : Master of the Order of the Holy Lance (Brothel owner - professionnal matchmaker - Dealer in chocolate)
Race: Drowussu
Age: 120 years
Gender: Female
Height: 200cm
Build: Curvaceous
Hair: White-Grey
Eyes: Gold
Weapon: None
Specialization: Empathy
Details: Aere'laan is a very appealing drowussu blessed with a natural beauty. From her look we could mistake her for being a member of the kyorl clergy but it's just a voluntary inspiration.
Her hairs are always loose but also well-groomed.
Her wardrobe consist in revealing and appealing white dresses brighten up with pieces of jewellery made of gold and emerald.

Personality : Aere'laan has a very open mind and excel at conversation. She knows how to relax the minds of her hosts and lead them to appreciate a carefree time in her establishment.
She also know how to seize an opportunity and to manage a business and delicate situations.
In fact, she's thinking almost only for her own self, to asset her position and keep her business at the top position. The whole community is not a priority but if she could have close privileged relations with some high personnalities, the better is.
She is always talking on friendly terms, using the polites manners suited to the Vals but she can be teasing (especialy against a uptight person) or excited and passionated on some subjects.

Relationships
: Single, shipable (if someone can be suited for her). She is into males and females.
Form her former job she knows how to ravish anyone, physicaly and mentaly. She's absolutly not shy or ashamed on this subject.

History : The lifestory of Aere'laan start when she was a pole dancer in a brothel.
Faithful believer of the goddess, she embraced her condition and mature into the world of payed ravishing where influent characters were coming sometimes to taste her skills.
As the years were passing by, she gained some renown, building relationships on the pillows with some influent peoples of the Kyorls and Dutanvirs districts.
At some point she became the owner of the brothel she worked in and nurtured it even further.
Rapidly the establishement grown to be one of the most refined brothel of the district and she became a Val (she bought the title). She even took a step into the chocolate district business, slowly taking onwership on the finest material.
She changed the name of her brothel, taking inspiration on the Kyorls clergy society and decided to imitate it.
The establishment took the name of "The Order of the Holy Lance", specialy dedicated to the templars and Kyorls in need of special "rest" and "tastes". She's playing the role of the "master" of this parodying order. Anyone is welcomed here, from the newcomer to the Holy Mother (if she visit Aere'laan one day.)
The business has never been so much prolific until now ... and the lances so well polished.

Ok, so I gots lots of ideas here.

Most straightforward is to bring back Nergui, and there are a lot of reasons to do so. Though, i am not sure she is still alive given we last saw her bleeding out...

There is also the possibility of bringing back Kyudosha, particularly since I can point to For Honor’s ninja to give her a less hard to draw fighting style, though I am not sure she would fit in with what we know of the story.

Also, once again I am tempted to bring in Chrys’ boyfriend from daydream.

But New Ideas –
Wolfpack – Emberi militiawoman: Mostly I thought the Emberi were an interesting part of the colony that got a sadly small role, so I would like to give them more love.

Alliance: Felde Militiawoman – stoic and dutiful soldier who is sick of dealing with Nid pyscho antics and would like missions to run professionally for a change.

Alliance: Jieyen/Nid speamaster – a youn Jieyen who rebels against the humble culture of his clan by being very flamboyent and unstealthy, and loves to fight other spear weilders to prove he is the best.

Legion: Sul commander – A Sul with a House Tions father, he loves fighting but is very friendly, would kick your ass in the morning and go drinking with you that night. Also the very model of a modern major general.

Legion: Goblin tracker – a former hunter who was made a slave and then escaped to the war meat, brought along for skill in tracking targets in the overworld

Legion Sniper: 100% for the money, professional crossbowman. Be polite, be effecient, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

Legion: Flame trooper - Utter pyromanic, loves the smell of fire foci in the morning.
