Wow, this is nostalgic. A page for my OC's! Ah, yeah. I still have interest in a lot of my older characters even though I haven't drawn some of them or worked on their stories in many years. I'll definitely work with all of these again at some point.

FYI the fine print: some of the art on this page (both by me and others) is extremely old! Like, from 2001 and shit. This exists as a fun archive for me and isn't supposed to be representative of my (or other artists') current work. There are drawings listed as "other" because I can't remember who drew it or I haven't been able to contact them to ask if they want to be credited. I'll glady take something down if someone requests or add/remove credit/links.

note for artists: if you're here to draw one of these characters, feel free to draw them as any race. If my stories were being made into movies it wouldn't really matter what race the actors are! The only story where it makes a differece is the historical fiction.


ELLE!

About: Elle is an interstellar freelancer. She has her own ship which she uses to transport payloads and sometimes passengers. Her real passion is racing, however, and she has recently acquired a real racing vehicle! oh no! Elle is an optimistic realist, a little awkward but very friendly, and does her best to stay on the right side of the law, usually. That's not a rule. She is vaguely obsessed with earth and dreams about visiting one day, photos of earth are plastered throughout the ship. She was born in space.

Appearance: In many ways she is androgynous. Often seen wearing a bomber hat (with built in headphones), a pair of work overalls, and work boots. She likes to dye her hair various colors and it is most often in a shorter style. She's probably a bit dirty from work and rough around the edges.

LANZA!

About: Lanza might like to call himself a legit freelancer but truthgully he has been cobbling his living together with various seedy tasks such as headhunting, selling counterfeit items, arms and drug dealing, space piracy, and petty theft. He tends to gamble most of his money away (or drink it away). He just isn't a reliable guy in general. Kind of loud, always talking. Smokes too many cigarettes. Is annoyingly fond of things like explosives and machine guns. Despite all of that he is actually somewhat clever and he's kept himself alive for this long. He has an alias among other criminals: The Salesman.

Appearance: He is usually dressed in a dirty version of business attire: slacks, button down shirt, a burnt tie, maybe a vest, usually a trench coat. He often wears boots and sometimes oxford shoes. Despite that there is a 90's scene kid vibe to him. A greasy 90's scene kid with too many piercings.

BOONE!

About: Boone is not in the mood for your shit, let me tell you. Boone is kind of grouchy, actually. You might kindly refer to him as "gruff". He's a brilliant mind, a mechanic and engineer who used to work in the Taryth 4 mines. His true passion, though, is guntrap mechanics. That is, the cars they use in the big races. A freelance life in space is quite anxiety inducing for him, but he is lured into the unknown by his obsessive passion to work on guntraps. Boone will spend hours over his drafting table and hours more in the shop, crafting things from scratch and fixing the unfixable. Just don't get in his way or smoke in the shop, he may actually bite you.

Appearance: Boone is somewhat dog-like in appearance, with long floppy ears and tufts of dusty purple fur. He is short and is usually seen wearing his old heavy-duty mining gear. It's really tough, well-made gear so he sees no reason to change it. He is often wearing a cap and goggles.

PAULI!

About: Pauli is a gangster to the core. She is running a huge business; she owns an entire planet as well as one of the biggest casinos and X-Circuit racetracks in the quandrant. She comes from a powerful family. She wore black for a year after her father died, but the popular rumor is that she killed him herself. Now that she has total control of her family's assets, nothing stops her from playing the games she likes to play. Paulie is a bit of a gambling addict, herself. She loves to be surprised, but not too much. She's cold and calculating and always has a knife behind her back, figuratively. There are not many who would risk crossing her.

Appearance: She is a slight woman, not very tall and small in general with a skinny appearance. She does not look formidable, however her eyes are capable of some truly murderous glares. She usually has her hair styled into a 1920's-esque waved bob. She wears dark makeup and has a flapper/futuristic/dominatrix-like style to her clothing.

FLIES with EYES!

About: Flies is a fae, a fairy, a fair folk. Whatever the heck you want to call them. She is somewhat of a mystery. She doesn't have wings as many fae do, rather she has an additional set of small eyes on her forehead. No one really knows why or what's going on with that. She is rather impish, with a tendency to jump around and harass people. If she doesn't like you she won't hesitate to spray flying insects out of her hands and then direct them to attack you. That is her iconic magic power and where she gets her name from. Her true name is kept secret. Flies is fiercely loyal to her friends despite a seemingly chaotic and destructive personality.

Appearance: She takes the form of a small girl with short hair. The hair is kept short, at least in the front, so that her second pair of eyes can see clearly. She has very greasy skin and a bad case of acne. Flies dresses in all black, typically, with form-fitting, acrobatic clothing. Her clothes are greasy and dirty. She's actually a disgusting person, truly. She's gross-out to the max and loves it.

AMRO!

About: Amro is actually some kind of fire spirit. He was captured by a demon and forced into servitude for hundreds of years. Amro's intelligence is pretty high, though, and with the help of a star he managed to trick the demon while passing through a portal to the human world. The demon was henceforth trapped within an obsidian sword that Amro keeps carefully guarded at all times. He has been in the human world for nearly 1,000 years at this point and has developed many human characteristics though he retains a very hostile, hot headed, humorless persona. He's not "evil" however the main reason he doesn't simply kill whoever annoys him is that he's trying to fit in, not because he is morally against it. In the present time he works as the court astrologer in Sria City.

Appearance: Amro is of average height with smooth black hair that is usually mid-back in length and tied up in some way or another into complex hairstyles. He is often wearing fancy colorful clothing, embroidered in gold with sashes and robes, etc. He could be seen as a fire spirit or an adventurer. He always appears to be in his mid 30's despite his true age.

RSHI!

About: Rshi might call himself a pilgrim. He isn't really specifically religious, though. He just likes having an excuse to wander around as a general vagrant or traveler. He plays his instrument (which is based on the african akontig), plays songs and busks, and does his best to avoid confrontations. He's a nice guy, very gentle and giving in nature. Kinda lazy. Smokes a lot of "generic fantasy herb". He came from a remote tribe in the desert, but, too bad, he slacked on his magical training and everyone considered him to be possessed by evil spirits afterward. That's not true, though. The spirits aren't evil, just misunderstood.

Appearance: Rshi is tall and lanky and dresses in baggy pants and loose fitting clothing/robes. He has a long dreadlock ponytail and short hair on the top of his head. He carries around a staff. Rshi has a generally dusty and dirty look to him with worn clothes.

RUPAL!

About: Rupal is a thief and general rogue. She was born in a temple and raised along with many other girls as intended priestesses and eventual sacrifices to a powerful goddess. Skip ahead a few years: she has destroyed the temple, befriended the goddess, and run away to the grand cities on the desert coast to enjoy a vibrant life of pick-pocketing and performance art! She throws knives with expert precision. The goddess, who communicates with her regularly, is fixated on destroying a demon. Rupal is content to ignore that responsibility in favor of petty theft and running her gang.

Appearance: Rupal is usually dressed in baggy pants or skirts, coined belts and scarves, chunky earrings, bangles, and a supportive top. Her body type is shorter and more full figured. Her hair is long and she often wears it up in various styles. There are tattoos that depict ocean waves around her lower legs. Knives are always on her hip. She does like make-up. She could be depicted as clean or dirty. She prefers to look clean with new clothes. But sometimes that just isn't happening, the city is rough.

VIGO!

About: He has always been intuitive, ears open to the unseen. Can he really be blamed for having heard the call of a long imprisoned demon? Can he be blamed for being drawn to it? That's what happened. Salkahfa came to him in a dream, disguised as a beautiful woman, and the relationship was built from there. Promised power in return for deeds done. Vigo wasn't ever totally sure of who or what he was dealing with. His roving band of highwaymen practically worship him, "The Scorpion", a monster of a man who eats human flesh, so they say. The scourge of the trade roads west of Sria. A terrible and terrifying man who leaves no survivors where he strikes. He has enjoyed his power.

Appearance: Vigo is slightly tall with a wiry build. He has gradually taken on a slightly more monsterous appearance due to his consort with Salkafa. His nails are sharp and longer than a typical human's. His pupils have become more slit-like in shape. The skin on one of his arms is taking on an almost scale-like texture. Some people even say they've seen a man with a scorpion's tail in the desert, could it be Vigo?

KIERAN!

About: 1868 America "historical" fiction universe, hah. Kieran is an Irish immigrant who has been living in New York City. The hot summers, freezing winters, and awful grog have rotted his memory; he doesn't really know how long he's lived in NY or his age. He remembers rural Ireland, he remembers cleaning chimneys in London, and he remembers finally getting hired to work on a ship to America and not looking back. He is a bit of a prick to he honest. Mean, embittered, smoldering, looking for a fight. He's usually scowling unless he's playing music. Even so he has a fire in him. Occasionally he can even muster the smallest shred of kindness. He likes to fight and the only thing he is sincere about is his violin. He can be very destructive to himself at times. I don't know but I suspect he has bipolar disorder.

Appearance: Kieran has dirty blonde hair that is greasy and wavy/tangled. It is usually as long as his chin or even shoulders. He wears an apple cap sometimes. The most distinguishing thing he wears is the plaid duster. All of his clothes are very dirty and his teeth are awful. He's awful.

ELI!

About: It's 1868 America, or something like that. (Look, I'm a hack when it comes to accurate historical fiction). Eli is an african american traveler, hitting the road after a long, humid season spent on rice in maryland. New York always sounded like a really cool place with tons of opportunity and open-minded people. Turns out it was just more of the same, being barred from skilled jobs, etc. But Eli isn't one to give up so easily on his dreams of a better life. The west coast is calling him. He takes his banjo everywhere he goes, music is his lifeblood and inspires him to take the risks to get where he wants to be. He's an extremely kind person, willing to help even those who would throw him under the bus. He isn't naïve, though, and he isn't a pushover. He will stand his ground when it comes down to it. Very good with a deck of cards though he prefers not to cheat, usually.

Appearance: Eli is somewhat tall and usually keeps his hair very short with a great set of muttonchops, oh yeah. He's often wearing a wide-brimmed cowboy hat and he likes to chew on a shaft of grass. He has an easy going smile and dresses in a way typical of the 1860-1870's with a cowboy edge. He likes looking dapper.

ROSE!

About: It's 1868 or thereabouts! Rose is a kid, maybe 10 years old? She doesn't know her exact age and neither do her parents. Her parents are highwaymen and they've been using Rose as bait for years. She doesn't much like her parents or any of the people who hang around with them. They treat her like an object, without much concern for her wellbeing or affection. She fends for herself, mostly. Rose is a bit feral. She is prone to biting and clawing but not screaming, she's actually pretty quiet. She actually doesn't speak much at all. The only thing she seems to care about or speak to is her doll.

Appearance: She has a head of wild, birds' nest-like hair that is halfway down her back. Her hair is orange/dirty blonde and she has freckles on her face. She could be pictured wearing ratty dresses, boy's clothes, or when she's a little older: trapper's leathers.

NINA!

About: Wow, so Nina was my Star Fox fan character way back in, heck... I dunno when I made her up. 1999? I am not ashamed, I still love her. Bring on the cringe, I will not falter! I never really did much with her besides draw and write private stuff, mostly. She's a space pirate and mercenary and, guess what, she's in love with Bill Grey. Oh yeah, hot stuff. Bill and Nina have a steamy thing going on since he is a member of the Bulldog Squadron and specifically tasked with arresting pirates like her on sight. However, their affair causes Bill to make questionable choices. Spicy stuff, huh. She is serious and jaded but likes to enjoy the little things like coffee, good booze, and nice clothing. She preferes to remain uninvolved in the affairs of others but could be convinced to put aside her selfish ways to help others in some cases. Bill's ridiculous nature attracts her because she is nothing like that, herself. Her sense of humor is tough to kindle.

Appearance: I never actually decided on a species for her in the past. I waffled between fox, coyote, fennec fox, dingo--- I dunno. Canids. Red/orange fur. I suppose these days I might say she's some type of fox. She has long dark cherry-red hair that could be free flowing or in dreadlocks. Cool, sexy space pirate clothes! Haha. Or draw her as a sea pirate. She's kind of a hot babe.

TANYE!

About: Tanye has been around since 2008 or so. She was the first DnD character I ever made (I think) and a pretty obvious self-insert. There was a time when I was kinda embarassed about that, but no longer. I find her to be a good documentation of the ways I've chosen to express myself over the years. She is generally seen in a fantasy setting, her weapon of profeciency being the bow. I don't have the character sheet I made for her anymore, sadly. She was a ranger. A person of the wilderness, choosing to be away from civilization as much as possible and knowing how to live off of the land. She involves herself with forest outlaws at times and tends to side against humans whenever the wilderness is at stake.

Appearance: Half-elf. Brown hair that is usually short, though it could be as long as the shoulders at times. A gender neutral appearance, usually. Leather as armor and dressed in a way that is functional for a life spent mostly outdoors. May be seen with animal companions such as a wolf a hawk or raven. In earlier depictions she has swords but recently I feel she'd be more likely to use a bow and small hatchet since she'd be carrying it anyway.
