Character Reveal: Sheena

Hi friends. I’ve been known by many names in the past, Kenji among other instruments. I’m bad at describing myself, I suppose I could say I’m a fairly well-rounded person. I’m a writer here on the crew. Here’s a summary of the character I’ve been working with on and off for the past year or so:

It was a war as brutal as any known to humankind, spanning nearly half a century and encompassing the entire settled surface of Antares III. Through the courageous acts of those looking to end the conflict, peace among the people was eventually established. Stringent agreements of unification were approved by all of the factions involved with the planetary war, and on that foundation, they prepared for a new age of advancement and prosperity.

Enter Sheena, a daughter born from veterans of this war. A girl watched over with care by a doting mother and a wise father. Influenced by them as well as others in the tightly knit community she was raised in, Sheena has become a kind, gentle and curious young woman.

Since coming up with her original visual design, the main elements haven't changed much. I hope to keep it that way in the future. She's quite a cutie as it is, right?

Her surroundings and upbringing have given her a high air of enthusiasm and positivity. She was born under the blessing of the Artegian Right, a new movement rooted in the peace agreements that ultimately ended the war. Members prize the goodness in others above all else, believing that every being has the potential to seek virtue, and is vital to the advancement of all life in the universe. Like the rest of the children born in this generation, she is seen as a miracle, untarnished by the war, and innately peaceful if guided correctly. Her personality from early on in her life has been shaped by the ways of The Right, and as such, Sheena has always been held in high regard within the community. Sheena is as devoted a follower as any, pledging her life to these teachings and expressing their values in her interactions with others. She has a reputation of one who can be turned to when an extra helping hand is needed.

Sheena has followed these teachings, sworn to the words she’s heard through her life, and holds them close to her heart. Her sheltered upbringing has left her a little lost on Familiarity; every aspect of it is essentially alien to her. Perhaps she is in need of a guiding hand, someone who is able to understand her beliefs, as well as show her how to open her eyes as well as her arms.

That’s about the jist of it for now. I will continue to hammer out Sheena’s story as time goes on. My writing tendencies are abstract at best. It's often hard to determine what to write. Sheena's a bit of a different case. You know that feeling when creating an idea that it starts to pop into your head and whisper things? The type of voice that you just gotta let out? Sheena is that sort of idea to me. She's a little of this and that gathered from designs and ideas I've had in the past. She brightens my day a bit, maybe one day she’ll brighten yours.

What's next for us? Well, check back soon, as we may just have a Christmas present in store.
