Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

All the Galaxy's a Stage (Part the Second)

So I ended up with far fewer characters on this second round than I had thought (here's the first round if you're just joining us). I've been shuffling some characters around, and now I'll need to make at least one more post. After dwelling on the females in the first part, I shamefully failed to mention that my (as of now) highest characters, Tollkirsche and Versteckt, are Male Body 2, the stud—I so want to name all the body types now. Let's see:

Type 1 - the Waif
Type 2 - the Sport
Type 3 - the Amazon
Type 4 - the Hourglass

Type 1 - the Wimp
Type 2 - the Stud
Type 3 - the Hulk
Type 4 - Fluffy


Rattataki, Bounty Hunter (Powertech)
"I made a pile of bodies, then I walked over it."

Named for several different plants. The Texas Silverleaf is perhaps the most apropos, given here I personally live and my SWTOR legacy.

Xuxuy Tesig is a Rattataki warrior and champion gladiator who spent time as a mercenary before being discovered and recruited by the bounty hunter Braden into a team trying to get into the Mandalorian Great Hunt. Claiming that all the best hunters had nicknames, Braden's dataslicer, Mako, gave Tesig the appellation "Silverleaf." His facial scar is the result of an almost disastrous fight with a nexu in The Cauldron on Rattatak. The nexu's hide now decorates Silverleaf's quarters on his pirated D5-Mantis, dubbed the Wayfarer—again by Mako.

I started Silverleaf to run with Scooter's Agent, Ginie, which she had to start the other evening while an incomplete download prevented playing anything but a new character. Partly because we are only following the stories, I have quickly become attached to this very new character.


Human, Bounty Hunter (Mercenary)
"If at first you don't succeed, reload."

German = Willows, also the the name of a town I visited several times while staying in Germany a few years ago.

One of my original characters, Weiden has been on hiatus—stuck on Balmorra—for ages. I loved the idea of the skull facepaint on his dark skin. I'd thought to pick him back up when I got to the right place in the story with Silverleaf, but Scooter likes him better, plus it would create different group dynamic since Scooter's Agent, is a healing Operative.
