My first OCT! I'm super excited!
EDIT: After this last year of studio art and life drawing and hardcore practice, I’m leaning toward a more realism-inspired style for ER. I changed Sid’s app to accommodate that experimentation, so of course Ada’s needed some sprucing up too c:
More importantly I suppose, Ada has begun her unavoidable shift from ‘charming man-eater’ to ‘unhappy femme fatale’. That’s on purpose :CI should have named her Lilith
No, I already do too many religious referencesName: Ada ‘Honeybee’ Sanger
Height/Weight: 110 lbs./ 5’4”
Hometown/Region: Nimbasa City, Unova
Military Faction: Army
Extra items: Steak knife, laudanum, monocular, eye patch
: With a sugary-sweet disposition and a love of handing out pet names like party favors, Ada is a first rate people-person… Or at least she pretends to be. While outwardly open and generally charming, she is rather shallow and wishy-washy in terms of strong relationships.
Her outlook on life is also one of complete indifference. To her, war is simply 'Kill or be killed'.Backstory
: Former exotic dancer and call girl for the notorious Castelia burlesque club, Ada ‘Honeybee’ Sanger was a woman who sold her soul to pleasure.
… But after 10 years of endless lap dances, strip teases, and abusive customers, Ada had grown tired of the Vanity Fair. She needed something new. And so, with little more than a stolen steak knife and the clothes on her back, she got what she wanted: She enlisted in the army. For what, only she knows. Out of fear, out of patriotism, out of boredom, out of spite... It's all relative to her.
As long as she can get away.
Far, FAR away.Miscellaneous
- Lost her eye in a skirmish with her pimp. She makes a sport of telling this to people bluntly
- Her pimp called her 'Honeybee' because she has 'hips like a vespiquen'
- Likes oatmeal
- Said she wanted 'sexy' pokemon. Got an Unown, a tranny Heracross, and a baby Seviper instead.
- All her pet names for people and pokemon are uncomfortably similar to stripper names. It's a force of habit.Pokemon:
Sweet Pea | Unown | Adamant| Levitate | N/APokemon Bio
: Sweet Pea was scraped off a wall like a wad of gum from underneath a restaurant table.
But beyond the worldwide consensus that unowns are about as useful as a glass hammer, the army had bigger plans. The Kanto researchers who illegally harvested her (and a few of her cousins) from the Ruins of Alph were attracted by the theory of unowns as ‘looking glasses’: With their psychic abilities, they had the potential to be trained to act as a ‘third eye’ for their handler. Ada did not choose Sweetpea. When the researchers saw she was already short one eye, they flung Sweetpea at her like a hot potato. “The perfect match”
Ada thinks it’s one giant cosmic joke that she got landed with Sweet Pea.Personality
: It’s a mystery as to how a disembodied eye can have more spunk than a human being.
Sweet Pea is an Unown full of pluck and nerve. She (at least it likes to believe it’s a ‘she’) is a bit more enthusiastic about the army than some of the other military pokemon. It’s not like she has much to lose. She was stuck to a wall for half of her life. But if anyone can push Ada’s buttons, it’s Sweet Pea.
And she’s just trying to be nice.Blue | Heracross | Relaxed | Guts | Male
Blue has always been curious about people. Notoriously unlucky in all normal male Heracross endeavors, he preferred to spend his days people-watching. There wasn’t any special reason why he decided one day to wander into a Kanto military camp. After the initial alarm and the second round of ineffective tranquilizers, it was decided that it might be a safer option to find the man-sized beetle a partner. Personality:
The epitome of a ‘gentle giant’, there is a certain strange femininity in Blue that makes him like a mother. He quickly began to watch silently and diligently over Sweetpea and Ada (The latter being entirely unenthusiastic about it), like a hen and her chicks. But despite Blue’s effeminate tendencies, he can and will bench-press a spitfire at the drop of a hat.
Ada would rather not think about what normal male Heracross are capable of.Amber | Seviper | Jolly | Shed Skin | Female
Amber was one of many ‘pets’ seized from a young man in Fuchsia City, who was found housing over 50 species of very exotic (and very illegal) pokemon. Not wanting to waste a fresh supply, the Kanto army scooped up the orphan monsters and distributed them among their ranks. Personality:
Born and raised in captivity, Amber is a charming, good-natured Seviper that loves being coddled. Unfortunately for Ada, that means allowing her to nestle on her shoulders for the majority of the day. Truth be told, Ada doesn’t mind much, finding a snake to be a rather fetching accessory… If only this one wasn’t 10 feet long and 155 pounds.
And Amber is still just a baby.
