Hey, yo. Call out to the server nerds. If any of you have screenshots from stuff that happened while I was at Py’s (30th-5th) hit me up so I can get it up on the blog.
Not really a biome, but the Twilight Forest holds a special place in her heart. It’s lush, quiet, untamed, and has a sort of sleepy, placid quality to it. And it rains a lot, which she enjoys the sound of. She goes to the Forest to escape and relax.
Ekil isn’t so much a character as a concept for a machine race in my now scrapped headworld. They were hivemind-based biomechanical beings, with an organic mind and synthetic body. I really like the design, so I’m hanging onto it for possible use in the future.
She’s a somewhat idealized version of me, but we have a lot in common. This is really because she was originally created as just an avatar for me, and her character developed on top of that. Obviously since I’m the one playing her character, she picks up my own characteristics.
Aww, you didn’t need those fingers anyway.
She has plenty of bad habits, but I’ll list the main ones.
First and foremost, she worries about everything. Friends, coworkers, her latest project, her past projects, the weather…you name it. She worries nonstop, and sometimes vocally, even if it’s annoying or completely unnecessary.
Worrying leads her to drink. A lot. Often things that would make your average human quite ill. She has a taste for strong mineral spirits mixed with honey or molasses.
She’s pretty paranoid, too, and tends to prioritize security and control in her living spaces. Often to a somewhat ridiculous extent. Her lab at AJCO, for example, has walls three layers thick, made of reinforced stone and warded stone, with a blast door and set of lockable reinforced doors. If a nuke went off in AJCO, her lab would remain almost entirely intact.
There is no reason for this, as she really has no actual enemies.
Frances is a bit of a thief, and will often snatch small items off of desks or shelves and pocket them. She’s pretty good about taking only things that won’t be missed or can be returned later, and most of the time her pilfering goes unnoticed. If your gold watch goes missing from a drawer and Frances has been in your house recently, she’s probably stashed it away somewhere. If she remembers, she’ll discreetly return it at some point.
Last for now, and something that is just recently being developed, she’s intensely greedy and tends to hoard things. This ties in to the thieving somewhat, but often she’s just hoarding things she’s gathered or been given. A lot of the time it’s not even anything useful. Just trinkets, shiny things, expensive but otherwise fairly useless things like gold, rubies, etc. She’ll stash these all away in some well-organized chests behind a locked door somewhere.
She really likes gold.
