okay, since i’m curious and won’t have access to a fast computer for a couple weeks, i’d like to ask something else
i’ve seen a bunch of people around with their own original fallen london characters, whether they’re full-out roleplay characters or whether they’re just characters that kind of developed as you played through fallen london
and i’d like to know about them. reblog this post, send me an ask- as little or as much as you’d like to tell me is fine!
question mark for people who want to reply to this post?
I’m gonna do both my Fallen London character and my Sunless Sea character.
Xiùlán “Ren” Renly is the daughter of a British Navy officer and a Chinese woman. Her mother was in love with her father, and while her father was fond of her mother, he refused to marry her. He did send money when he could, but Ren is still highly resentful of him. She was born and raised in Shanghai. She spent most of her life dreaming of adventure, but neither British nor Chinese society had much use for a loud, disobedient girl who was prone to fighting and angry at everything. She came to Fallen London because she heard things were different down there and that people were free to choose their own path, no matter their sex or race. She’s currently hunting the Vake and is head-over-heels delighted to have met the Sisterhood (fellow ladies who like to punch stuff FTW). She is compassionate, despite her temper and love of fighting, and she has a particular fondness for outcasts. She’s closest to the Urchins, and she’s made several visits to Flute Street because she thinks the Rubbery Men are neat.
On the Zee, Viola Bandersnatch is a former street urchin who has become a captain. She was born after London fell, and so grew up never knowing what the Surface was like. Her older sister, Regina, actually became a zee-captain first, and she taught Viola everything she knew. Tragically, Regina was killed by a Lifeberg, leaving Viola alone in the world. Viola took to sailing because it’s not like she had any other prospects in life, and she’s found she actually rather likes it. People respect her more, no one tries to arrest her or throw her in a workhouse, and for the first time in her life she has money and a roof over her head. She even got to visit the Surface and see the sun for the first time ever. Her ship is named The Sunrise.
