Ava Winters (re-nameable MC) - A former Dominion captain, you left the army after a run in with an Archon artifact left your entire unit dead. Now you captain a motley crew of outlaws, renegades, and vagabonds trying to scrape by a living in a universe increasingly hostile to the idea of outlaws. With the Dominion forces trying to force order in the universe, you try to steer your way through the chaos and hang on to the last wild frontiers.
Rhett - The only other surviving member of your Dominion unit, Rhett has stood by your side for over a decade. Steadfast and calm, he’s the perfect second-in-command. A good soldier, a better friend, and despite his intimidating looks, a total marshmallow. He's had a crush on you for over a decade, but he's always been too shy to act on it. Maybe now's the time to finally give him the push he needs to take a risk or two.
JD - A smart-mouthed playboy that propositions you at every turn. As a gifted mechanic, he’s a vital part of your crew, no matter how aggravating. JD rarely takes anything seriously, apart from upgrades to the ship. His easy wit and charming demeanor make you want to learn more, but it's hard to take his over-the-top flirting seriously and it feels like he's just messing with you. Unless, he actually means what he says?
Morgan - The ship's chef is quite possibly the only capable crew member. Morgan can shoot, steal, hack, pilot, and do generally anything you need him to, but he chooses to cook. That doesn't stop the crew from treating him with more respect than they give you, though. He says he's retired, but no one has any idea what he actually retired from. And the more you try to find out, the more he tries to push you away.
Lex - Never one to mince words, Lex is the best pilot in the universe and wants everyone to know it. Snubbed by both the Dominion forces and the Republic alliance, Lex has offered you her piloting skills, at a cost: she wants to take your spot. To her, being captain means having the best skills, and she's got that in spades. But maybe her 'rivalry' with you is really just her way of trying to get to know you better?
Caspian - Cold, calculating, cynical. Those three words sum up the talented ship’s doctor Caspian. At least, that's what he wants you to think. Too bad he keeps slipping up and showing how much he really cares about the crew, and especially you. With a checkered past and some bad decisions still haunting him, it seems being part of your crew is just about the only thing keeping Caspian grounded right now.
Teegan - Or, Tactical Ground Operation Unit Number 9820693681. A fully functional Archon android, they're basically a walking miracle. No one else has had the technology to make such a thing for over two thousand years. They find themselves awake and stranded in a land they don't understand, where everything they've known is gone. Programmed to learn and adjust, they tentatively join your crew to try and carve out a space for themselves in this strange new world.
A highly opinionated protagonist. Ava is not a passive character in her story. Make snarky comments, flirt with your crew, and generally lead your ship to fame (infamy) and fortune.
Older characters. Your crew are all capable adults with clearly defined opinions and pasts.
Mature themes. You're space pirates, and stealing is how you survive. Sometimes that means violence, sometimes grift.
Romance. It is rated 16+, though there is also an 18+ version with sexual situations. Rated for general language, crude humor, violence, and adult situations.
Rhett's last name is Gable because the only thing I could think of saying after his name was 'Butler'. (Clark Gable is the actor who played him in 'Gone with the Wind'.)
The game will have 18+ scenes but there will also be a censored "fade to black" version that skips them and leaves bras on female characters that would otherwise be topless.
Character bios and routes are definitely subject to change since I don't really outline I just kind of write the route and figure it out as I go.
