Characters, Free To A Good Home
Characters, Free To A Good Home

I can't feed all the little buggers!  Take them!  I'LL GIVE YOU MONEY TO TAKE THEM FROM ME!

Ahem.

This thread is for character concepts that you just can't (or won't) find time to play, but need to get out *somewhere*.


---------------------
Street Justice/whatever (probably SR, if I was rolling him).  He's the lead vocalist for a rock band by day and fights crime by night.  Rainbow tights and a leather jacket, a 70's porn 'stache, and a monocle.  He's a speedster.

Teddy Mercury

---------------------
Kinetics/something, probably recolored ice or water.  She's hyperactive, smol, cute, and bubbly.  Pink, pink everywhere -- we're talking full-on bubblegum princess here.

Sugar Rush sounds scarily similar to my vision for Kim Estetic, my Kin/Grav troller. or was she Grav/Kin? Only *REAL* difference is I much prefer a green to Pink
Hear that thunder rolling till it seems to rock the sky?
Thats' every ship in Grayson's Navy taking up the cry!
NO QUARTER!

Heh, I was thinking Sugar Rush sounded like a fun alternate personality to use for the Unleashed/superspeed combo I prefer in Champions Online if I ever got back into that. I even have the candy cane swords to use for it, though I wouldn't want to delete Velocirapture just to switch names.

(for those not familiar with CO, the Unleashed archetype is twin swords AOE melee with a little regen and a few TK like effects, in the form of a defense that means you can always be "blocking" as long as you keep tapping that key in between attacks, and a choice between a toss/knockdown or .... I forget the other option since I never took it. Basically modeled on a Dark Jedi ala Starkiller from The Force Unleashed. Superspeed isn't a theme for anything as such, just an option for travel powers, but saying "She's a speedster" is more interesting than "she waves swords around, and does a handful of other loosely related things." And archtypes are the Free to Play ghetto, to entice players into either subscribing or buying a US$50 character slot that can use the freeform powers selecton.)

I had another thought RE Sugar Rush after riding an odd train of thought out to the end of the line - if you want to give her a magic origin, she might have gained powers from studying the Glykonomicon (the Book of the Names of Sweets) or playing up cutesied-up dark magic themes that could be something to do with her nemesis.

Also, while I'm not sure quite how small you can make CoX characters or how accessible bug-wings flight is, one of my favorite unused character concepts is Pixie Cacao, a tiny superstrength/martial arts type with maybe a fire based "special technique" or two trained as a Kung Fu Chef of the Lip Smak Yum temple. Ageless and older than the temple itself she gradually was drawn away from her whimsy (group of pixies) by curiosity about the strange dances the new human settlers did, becoming more similar to human social and mental norms over the next few centuries as she spied on and imitated and eventually openly joined them. Eventually the Grand Master Abbot declared that she could advance no further without going out to gain experience in the wider world, and so she began a journey to test her kung fu in trials of strength and her cooking in trials of buffet. Basically, she's a hybrid martial arts/cooking manga character, because a tiny flying brick is funny and magical food fits the fairy theme, even if that kind of thing is is difficult to fit into a combat-based video game's systems as more than role-play elements.
