I’m going to rewrite the first issue / story of the White Knight tonight, since I got comments back from the sensitivity reader. Then I just need to set up a specific site for it (besides the tumblr), finish the new logo, and start posting! While working 40 hours a week!
This is part of a longer piece (6 times Delia learned about gender, and one time she didn’t), but the other bits mostly kinda suck right now, so I gotta rewrite them. This does reference those a bit, but uhhh, you’re gonna have to guess from context, I guess. CN: mention of snakes in a […]
This was a bit of me working to differentiate between Tectrix, Silver Dollar (Enrico Donville), and Wild Rush. (TW for violence and anti-social behavior) Enrico is independently wealthy and does the gang stuff for respect. He pulls capers for fun. He does risky and daring stuff because he’s an adrenaline junkie. He’s business-like. Both he … Continue reading “”
Let’s see if I can’t finish off these character building questions that I’ve been working on too long! What does your character’s bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep? (TW: child … Continue reading “”
So here’s a thing I’m working on. This is made in Sketchup, using the sandbox tools. The mountains are part of the Snakeback Mountains, which is the leading edge of the Monot Rise. Shard City is in that divot in the right under the cliffs. I still have a ton to do, obviously, but progress! […]
What is your character’s preferred means of travel? Andre prefers to drive himself. He gets panic attacks on public transit, in taxis, and in cars with bad or unpredictable drivers (like Wild Rush) Charles prefers to ride shotgun or go by train / subway. Daisy loves trains and finds the noise and motion very relaxing. […]
Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.) Wild Rush – no, not really at all. He doesn’t have the patience for it. There a few cocktails he likes to make. He can also do slow cooker stuff. Daisy manages. She’s good at casseroles and […]
How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold? (Hey, I’ve got a writing snippet that talks about this a bit!) Wild Rush doesn’t really notice it. If it’s super hot or cold he might change what he’s wearing a bit, but not much. Daisy feels them and either snuggles … Continue reading “”
I really need to finish these off. Let’s see what I can do… How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email? Delia – pretty darn good, since she works at a technology company. Not as good as Mick (Future-Tech’s resident genius) or her son, but she gets […]
I swear I’m going to start actually drawing the comic, but I keep getting distracted by my conlang. I know I have at least a couple multiples who read my tumblr, so if you want to comment / critique / offer suggestions, I’d appreciate it. I’ve been a bit annoyed because I have two multiple-ish […]
(Image description: Nathan Burton, a tall heavy white man with red-brown hair tied back in a loose pony-tail, and Delia Troy Burton, a shorter muscular Asian woman, sitting on the floor snuggling in their pajamas, with Nathan’s arms around Delia).
Here’s Nathan Burton, Delia Troy’s (aka the White Knight) husband. This replaces the previous design, although he doesn’t usually run around shirtless. The pic came out a little darker than I wanted, but I don’t really feel like putting in more hours adjusting it, doing test renders, and then waiting an hour+ for the final read more
Shard City is a big place, so she’s not in charge of the whole police force. She’s the person Delia (as the White Knight) interacts with the most, and the boss of the three police officers I’ll be using the most. She’s very tall, white, far-sighted, trans, bisexual, and disabled. She generally doesn’t wear a […]

She’s very tall, white, far-sighted, trans, bisexual, and disabled.
She generally doesn’t wear a prosthetic unless she’s going to be working in the field or doing target practice. She was born with about six inches to her right arm and while the prosthetic is really good, it feels weird to her.

Yes, I finished the second one before I finished this one. Their faces are more or less done, although I need to thicken up some lines. Any sketch lines missing are because I’m working on top of a Poser image (I need to redo the characters into Daz using Genesis 1 – I’ve done Wild Rush, but that’s it)

Input welcomed to make stuff more realistic or to point out stuff I missed, especially from people who are multiple. (I am not)
Delia’s admin assistant is multiple (in-universe there’s something called Multiple Consciousness Condition – it’s NOT a disorder or disease. Multiples who need help get something similar to family therapy to work together and communicate better). (I’m specifically working on getting a ‘normal’ multiple in there because I have a couple characters, Swordcat and Ostanes/Iosis that are artificially multiple.) (Er, spoilers?)
(I’m going to say right here, anybody who’s going to try to say that multiplicity isn’t real or that it can’t be healthy or that people are doing it for attention or any other garbage like that can just shut up right now. I don’t want to hear it, I won’t approve comments along those lines, and, also, you’re wrong.)
The person who fronts the most at work is Irina. The body is female, 30-ish, and white. Over time Irina has grown to resemble the body more, although she’s still blonde while the body has dark hair. She’s non-binary and her in-world body is genderless. She showed up with a dozen others when the original was about 11, for no especial reason. (The home life was chaotic with lots of moving and family members in and out, but nothing horribly abusive). They faded / left for other worlds / died along with the original leaving Irina scrambling alone for several months. Irina took the legal name (was just ‘the pink girl’ – they were mostly named after colors by the original). She has anxiety and depression. She’s got a bit of a short temper which she tries to control. She tries to polite and nice to everyone, but she’s stubborn and impulsive.
The next people to show up were the twins Kim and Viola Violet who showed up when the body was about 13.
Kim’s a little boy aged about seven. He’s got periwinkle-ish skin, violet eyes, and butterfly wings. He can’t walk, but floats. In meatspace he’s very clumsy and stumbles a lot. He likes boys and gets lots of crushes. He likes birds and dinosaurs and loves to birdwatch. He’s very forgetful and kind of selfish (like a little kid), but loyal to his friends.
Viola age slides between 12-ish and 25-ish. She’s got red eyes, red hair, and dark purple skin. She’s asexual, has depression, and light and noise sensitivities. Because of their chaotic life she overcompensates by trying to control everything. Kim helps her remember to lighten up. She’s got tons of survival skills, the most useful one lately being able to pick locks. She loves languages and is always learning new ones. She fronted for most of the body’s teenage years. She takes a long time to warm up to people.
They’ve had a large amount of headmates show up and then fade over the years. During their teenage years it was about one a month on average.
The last one to stick around is William Beck. He’s moody, a bit of a hoarder, and has anxiety and paranoia. He’s about ten years older than the body and ages with it. Walked in from another world about when the body was graduating high school, and their family was moving across country (they decided to run away not long after that). He likes opera and has a good voice. He’s very loyal and kind. He’s got an excellent memory in-world but loses time when not fronting or co-fronting so he makes lots of notes.
William can be co-present with anybody but when not co-fronting can’t talk it Kim or Viola. Viola can only be co-present with Kim or William and loses time when not fronting. Kim can co-front with anyone. Irina doesn’t lose time and can always talk to everybody. They’re all generally co-conscious but during times of stress the fronter will get locked in for up to months at a time, which everybody hates. Kim hardly ever fronts because he can’t fake being an adult well.
They’re estranged from their family because they couldn’t handle it. They’ve got overlapping groups of friends. Delia, their boss, knows they’re multiple as do all their friends (because it isn’t stigmatized except by very conservative people). It’s easier to let strangers and other random people think they’re a singlet.
Comments? Suggestions? Critique?
10) Can you define a turning point (or more than one) in your character’s life? (TW: character death, Delia – when she met Mick Adler (leading to the creation of Future-Tech), when her husband died (the final straw to becoming the White Knight) Wild Rush – when he got the only birthday present he ever got […]
