Time for a quick promised update from my old notebook. For sake of ease, and as a nice refresher, I give you... The Character Bios!
The original notes are a hell of a snapshot of our old selves warped by comic license. With that in mind I take full responsibility for any hurt feelings, OR inflated egos. I had fun writing these out at the diner way back when, but they remain incomplete, and don’t reflect us as we are now much at all…
[Note: Objects in the mind's eye may be more demented then they appear.]
The notes are mostly unedited, and current additions will show up in italics… assuming I can figure out HOW to do italics in HTML… oh boy. Anyway, I'll give some commentary about each bio as well. It works for DVD extras!
Alex (aka: Chrono; the Timeless Pimp.):
WT: 175 lbs.
Blood type: “BWAH!”
Likes: Women who don’t piss him off, slammin’ music, Mac’in it. Oldschool standups.
Dislikes: Women who piss him off. Don’t get him started on the rest.
Quote: “They call me Chrono.”
What can I say, the man has a subtle way about himself, and could pull off a relaxed commentary about anything, unless it pisses him off. Women would ussually be the subject of the more energetic statments I've been around for. I really didn't have much to work with for a bio, he's too laid back!
Blood type: Caffeinated tar, Nicotine marinated Tao.
Weapon(s): Katana, Cynicism, The Tao De Ching, Nietzsche's soul.
Likes: Artistic inspiration, Daria, Gaining inner peace though systematic destruction of opponent’s spirit, Ryu’s Duffel and Sandals way of life.
Dislikes: Artist’s block, taxes, hangovers, mornings, nature, the human race.
Quote: “Fuck. Off.” [Note: I should have let him write his own.]
This is a dark image of the man, even for then! I figured there'd be enough laid back attitudes from everyone else and though Arsen would make a good angsty comic character rather then truley calm and collected as he would often be during action sequences. He'd let it out in quips and putdowns more then broadband drama because, as a slacker, drama takes too much effort. I was hoping to use that as a contrast for the clueless energy the any of the crew WILL cause given the proper situation.
WT: 140 lbs.
Blood type: Cranberry Red Dole +
Weapon(s): Limp Umbrella, Faulty Reasoning, Infinite Clones.
Likes: Hanging out, getting the upper hand, Mai Shiranui, Kaoru Nagisa, Understanding Cranberry Sauce on a spiritual level.
Dislikes: Never getting the upper hand, Getting smacked, DYING, People who don’t understand cranberry sauce.
Quote: “Hey guys, why are the bad guys running away?” "What do you mean, Kaoru is gay?"
Ummm... I think I went overboard, but somebody needed to be the kickaround. As it was, the concept was funny as hell. Given the immortality he effectivly has
he'd never grow up, because he would never NEED to, ensuring a weak character that is expendable. The Twist is that because he's so expendable with the unlimited cloning, the crew uses him like a Leatherman tool. The "All Purpose Decoy and Body Shield."
