To welcome the new year, I decided to draw updated portraits of my characters as I currently have them developed!
In Marine’s case, I’ve been slowly fleshing out her character and role in the story I have planned for her, and, while I’m still not 100% finished with it, it’s solid and satisfying enough for me to finally settle down on it.
So yeah, Marine: Hispanic, 32 years old (in this portrait), a former Navy officer who left after being involved in a tragic event. She’s become somewhat hardened as a result, and while she’s an excellent leader and diplomat, she has trouble putting her trust in others. However, under her stoic exterior lies a caring, empathetic individual who has set up a protective barrier around herself due to the effects of past events in her life.
She lives off of the earnings from her pawn shop, as well as her job as a cargo lifter for ships. Her major hobby is treasure hunting/tomb raiding, and is one of the few things she genuinely enjoys and gives her a sense of fulfillment. She stays fit for these sort of adventures by hiring Shelby as a fitness coach. Over time the two become the best of friends, experiencing many different adventures and hardships together. But that’s a story for another time~
Sexuality: Asexual. Has no interest in seeking sexual pleasure or establishing romantic relationships. However, she can become exceptionally close to people given time and effort (as is the case with Shelby).
First extended campaign I ever played was as Pytherion, a half-orc ranger with a hatred of running away. She was too low a level to have an animal companions but she did have an excellent horse
Once we were raiding a tomb and came across a Wight. Pytherion decided she wanted his axe at any cost, even when one of our companions was hit and died instantly and another fled. It was 2 on 1 versus an enemy we were definitely supposed to run from, but somehow we beat him. Then came the issue of the fallen Paladin.
Pytherions favoured enemy was undead but this was because of utter hatred of them, so she was less than keen to see him resurrected, However, her inquisitor ‘friend’ convinced her that there might be a way to revive him without him being undead. They dragged the body all across the island until they found a spring that was supposed to do the trick. Except it didn’t. And they had to fight an Anti-Paladin.
Both Pytherion and the Inquisitor were knocked unconscious, even with her sick new axe, and since there were only two of them what were they to do?
The Horse kicked the anti-Paladin in the face and he was re-killed. Pytherion and the Inquistor eventually awoke with no idea as to how the anti-Paladin was beaten. The Horse continued to kick ass, literally, until Pytherions disgraceful and untimely demise of being murdered in her sleep by a bandit
So like, theres so many loose ends???? Like it was common knowledge that Logan went on tons of adventures so much that no one batted an eye at him going to another continent, but …like we never hear about this?! He’s seen as a reclusive bookworm…. but he’s not!?! *bangs fists on table* give me more daredevil Logan!!

Most challenging entry in the series: Tomb Raider 3
This one always pushed me to my limits! A great many of the levels were so sprawling and labyrinthine - perfect Tomb Raiding level design - and it made it so much more challenging when I finally worked out where to go!
