You Make the Mob, S01E06: Background

OryxOryx Moderator Posts: 112 Moderator
We need to provide our scholarly Amaian zhubeast wrangler with a background!

This is a collaborative effort to create an NPC who will be settled somewhere in Starmourn! See http://forums.starmourn.com/discussion/156/you-make-the-mob-s01e01-pilot for the original thread. Thus far we have a bookish Amaian scholar whose makes her living as a zhubeast wrangler. She enjoys taking things apart (which she is absolutely terrible at putting back together again, despite her insistence otherwise) and ancient earth memes. But of course she hates zhu meat.

After this we will be voting on a CATCH PHRASE so post your suggestions in the comments! Can be something totally original, or an homage to one of many throughout pop culture.
  • Make it so!
  • To infinity and beyond!
  • I'm good enough, smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!
  • Houston, we have a problem.
  • You. Shall. Not. Pass!
  • Go ahead, make my day.
  • You ARE the weakest link. Goodbye.
  • I know you are, but what am I?
  • Madness? No. This is Spartaaaaa!
  • Go, go, Gadget catchphrases!

    Amaians have various fish-like characteristics and are well adapted for an amphibious lifestyle.

    If she loves memes she probably does quote them.

    We didn't get much in the way of suggestions for a catch phrase, plus we do actually need something original - or, if it's an homage, noticeably modified from the original - so I'm going to cancel voting on that particular aspect! The next thread will deal with aspects of the character that you all can try your hand at writing, if you so desire.... http://forums.starmourn.com/discussion/188/you-make-the-mob-s01e07-creative-writing/
