INTRODUCING: THE CAST OF HELLBOUND 2
That’s right everybody, gaze in awe upon the main cast of HELLBOUND 2. These are the human people that you’ll be playing as, so let’s take a closer look shall we? Before we do that, remember to throw me a follow to keep updated on everything if you don’t already. ALSO, all this concept art was done by @emiix, who is also doing a large portion of the art for the game, so make sure you throw them a follow and some likes as well. Got it? Got it.
This is “Tammy,” the character you play as throughout the game. You can change the name at the beginning of the game if you don’t like it. Tammy is the child of Maurice and Valerie from the first HELLBOUND game. Much like Eyor from HELLBOUND, and other video game characters like Chrono, the protagonists from Persona games, etc, Tammy doesn’t have an individual lines and most of her lines are implied. Tammy has a cat, demon powers, and isn’t about to put up with your bullshit.
This is Marle, who is Tammy’s best friend. Marle and Tammy have been friends since they were both really, really young. Marle is gender fluid, and you can change the pronouns that they are referred to as throughout the game, whenever you want (Male, Female, and Neutral are the options so far). Marle is supportive, lighthearted, and athletic. Marle carries the vastly underfunded New Edenville tennis team. Marle doesn’t have any demon powers.
Ratu is a weird guy who thinks that he is a vampire. He believes that he is a vampire so much that he actually has some vampiric traits. At first, he’s just a strange guy that you know from school, but eventually, he joins up with your team. Ratu is dedicated to his vampire character, and talks like Nosferatu or Dracula himself. Most of the other characters on the team give him shit for it, but he doesn’t really care, because deep down he knows that he’s a vampire (even though he’s not).
Kym is the mysterious, cool chick at school who smokes cigarettes behind the gym in between classes. She was held back a year, so she’s a year older than everyone else on the team. After Tammy exhibits her demon powers in public, Kym comes forward and tells Tammy and Marle that she too has some weird powers. Specifically, Kym can heal / restore people using songs and music. No one on the party knows it, including Kym herself, but Jay from HELLBOUND is actually Kym’s dad, which is the origin of her healing abilities.
And that’s all the player characters for HELLBOUND 2, for now. What do you guys think? They look pretty cool, right? Obviously they’re not going to look like that, since that’s the concept art, but their “face sprites” during the dialogue boxes and their images on the title screen will look like that. I wanna give another shout out to @emiix for bringing my really, really crappy drawings to life and making them look super good.
Maybe eventually I’ll show you guys the original concept art that @emiix had to work with. We’ll see how many notes this one gets. If it gets a lot, I’ll post the original concept art too and you guys will see what I’m talking about.
