This one's pretty straight-forward so I'm kinda surprised I haven't seen a thread for it. If I missed it, uh, oops? What mainly inspired your character? Historical figures, characters from other fiction, whatever. I'll start.
Slander is based off of a character named Meat I made for a game called Rifts years ago. If you aren't familiar, Rifts is a tabletop RPG where the setting can basically be summarized as 'Post-apocalyptic sci-fi Earth but also all universes intersect.' So there's dragons and wizards and cyborgs that would make Bushraki look weak in comparison, all as player characters. Anyway, Meat was a Crazy (yes, that's a class, because Rifts is ridiculous) and that meant she had nanotech brain implants that exacerbated mental illness but also made her a superhuman ninja with minor psionic abilities. I was the GM of that game so Meat was an NPC that didn't get fleshed out but early on I thought Slander would be a fun way to incorporate aspects into a PC.
(Scatterhome): You say, "Which by my calculations, it's your turn to pay."
(Scatterhome): Brantar says, "That's what my calculations have come to."
(Scatterhome): Paavo says, "My math adds up to that, yeah."
(Scatterhome): Cal says, "Bastards."
She's still a work in progress to be honest. I'm still figuring out what makes her tick, and just exactly how crazy she really is.
Then I made Althea as a Street Samurai in Shadowrun, and that was really fun, until they got into some really bad stuff and ended up taken over by a toxic spirit.
Well, when Althea became Nykara, and Nykara hit Starmourn, drugs happened. Really hard drugs. So this is my favorite D&D/SHRun character ON DRUGS.
The name was an entire accident since I was trying to roll up a male human named Ludwig but accidentally made him a her and decided to roll with it. Because of that, Ludwig became an orphan that was named by a non-binary that gave her a 'pretty human name'. Chose to randomly select a faction and now she was a dedicated Songster.
ETA- This was my LARP character-
