Friday Sketch – Old RP character edition!
May 13, 2011
The plot overload will resume on Monday, and rest assured that this time, there will be answers to all those burning questions you have…
Today is Friday the 13th, and in honor of that, I’m posting up a sketch of one of my old Serenity characters, who was TERRIBLY superstitious! (The best spacers usually are!)
Meet Nell “Dodge” Dodson, sole survivor of a mutiny that occurred while Reavers were busy overrunning her ship. She was the only spacer mean enough to fight her way to the one remaining escape pod, and that willingness to do anything to survive sort of defined her for the rest of the storyline. The rest of the crew grudgingly came to rely on her muscle and piloting skills, but I don’t know if any of them was crazy enough to trust her overmuch! She was about as rude and crude as they came (which was SO much fun for me to play), but she was also all kinds of twitchy, especially if anyone mentioned the word “Reaver” in her presence!! She once disappeared into the ducts of the ship for a few days because she ‘though she heard some ghosts’.
Two-parts Jayne, two-parts Tank Girl, all crazy. Yep, that was Dodge!
