I’ve recently gotten into the Monkey Island video game series (and by that I mean I’m currently obsessed with it), so I created my own oc, a cabin boy. And yes, he is indeed related to Guybrush Threepwood.
Frederick: Banjo and Kazooie. When he was little he loved watching his brother play it. He might just get a little surprise on his birthday…
SpringBear: Pokémon series. She loves collecting all the cute animals and giving them cool names.
Bonnie: Elder Scrolls and Fallout series. It’s hard to pin down exactly what she likes about this series the most. Most likely it’s the writing and the exploration but the weird glitches don’t hurt either.
Chica: Professor Layton series. She’s not a big fan of many games, but she can appreciate the ones that challenge your intellect.
Foxy: Escape from Monkey Island series. Silly puzzles and pirates? Sign him up!
Penelope: Amnesia, The Dark Descent and Dark Souls. Loves games that make her jump and feel scared with dark atmosphere.
Nade: Sims. Loves to find new ways to screw with the families he’s built and see if they can save themselves.
Robin: Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past. She loves Link’s outfit, name, the art in the booklet, the dungeon puzzles, and the Master Sword. She secretly really wants a Master Sword…Just wait til Neda shows her Majora’s Mask…
Lavier: Minecraft. Loves the idea of being able to build anything and fight monsters.
Alex: Final Fantasy 9. She watched her mother play it and fell in love with the setting, story, and amazing characters. She also likes to watch her sister play Dark Souls, it’s kinda funny seeing her jump.
Obsidian: Ghost Trick. He started playing it as a way to pass time, but as he progressed further and learned more he became invested in the characters and story. Despite being relatively short, it stuck with him.
Neda: Final Fantasy 9. The first game she ever got to play by herself. Usually her older sister would take over. Nowadays she likes to name Zidane Phineas…I’m sure you can guess who she names Princess Garnet…
Elaine Marley is one of my favorite video game ladies. Guybrush Threepwood is the main character of the Monkey Island series but without Elaine he wouldn’t have gotten as far as he did. Ever. And that is one of the reasons I also love them as a couple. Elaine starts out as the ruthless governor of
Mêlée Island (which is the island Guybrush arrives on when he wants to become a pirate) who ends up falling for Guybrush because he’s ridiculous (and perfect look at him in that screenshot yes those choices). She gets kidnapped by an undead pirate named LeChuck (who wants to marry her) a number of times and Guybrush always sets out to save her each time - the best part about this though is the fact that she’s usually way more capable of saving herself than Guybrush is of doing lots of things (PRECIOUS GUYBRUSH). By the time he gets there’s she usually already got shit done. <3
