Started trying to put together our design document...

My bro wrote this as an idea for the story... let me know what you guys think:

The teacher was a kind man.

The teacher was a very kind man.

The teacher was kind to orphans.

All over the world he travelled, from East to the West, looking for lost children.

To give shelter.

To give shade.

To give hope.

But not for any ordinary lost children.

He was looking for children who were abandoned. Lost. Exiled.

Because they were gifted.

Sometimes, the story was that their parents cast them out of the village because of their gifts.

Sometimes, the story was that their parents were killed by others. Out of hatred. Jealousy. Envy.


it was the gifts
that killed the parents.

No matter the story, these children had one thing in common.

Gifts that no one understood.

No one

but him.

And so he took them in.

One by one.

Promised them that he understood.

Promised that he would help control their gift so as not bring them any more sorrow.

To not be alone any more.

To be in control.

To give them peace.









He gave them everything.

And by giving them everything, he gave them a choice.

To work for him.

To take down every organisation, corporation, syndicate, that went against his kindness.

But so, so very little did they know...

That the teacher was not a teacher.

The teacher was an avenger.

And the enemy that once long ago caused the teacher such great sorrow

the enemy that he seeks to annihilate and eradicate from existence

was the entire race of humanity.

they would be his army.

his gifted, chosen army.



To one day serve and complete his desire for revenge.

and so

they carried on, growing, developing,

cultivating their gifts,

to grant life and take life

in the blink of an eye.

so very little did they know.

except for one child, who now knows...

Design for Characters

heres the young Miss Swetnam, backing story is she is the only female in her family to gain honours in fencing, her family is extremely sexist. her great great grandfather is a legend and the first professional fencer. Her family mysteriously ages slower so no one actually knows her real age but theres rumours of her great great grandfather"Joseph Swetnam" still walking the earth alive looking for a challegde, she secretly considers herself better than him but theyve never fought plus no one believes hes still alive. The dynasty of Swetnam is infact English! one liners :- "put away that sharp tongue of yours and attack me with a blade instead", "prepare to be cut to ribbons by a girl", "spare your chat up lines for someone your own age". START VOTING FOR THE DESIGN YOU LIKE GUYS!

Designs for characters

i went a little crazy on the painting last night.... I liked the article on character personality such as duke and stuff, cool. trying to think of one liners but so hard..... for hyde i got "wanna see how i got these scars", "trust me, you wouldnt like me when ive had a drink" , "Im gonna make a few 'changes' round here". basically he got scars from fighting which never heal even when he changes back to a geek, drinking his potion enables his change/transformation if others drink it in has the opposite affect for an unknown scientific reason.

Memorable Game Characters

"“It’s time to kick ass and chew gum, and I’m all out of gum.” duke nukem - LOL


Interesting read!

I think we can apply this to our characters, they don't need huge superfluous backstories... we can place emphasis ultimately on their design, and maybe add some cheesy one liners ;)
