Characters and their names!

Post  Grathius on Fri Sep 10, 2010 8:10 pm

Do it, now. I think they shouldn't have real names, as their afraid of getting too emotional, and instead decide to go by their career names

The Singer: He's a singer. He was just warming up, when the virus/infection showed it's face in town. He ran off, with a guitar as a weapon. He keeps moral up in the group.

The Cook: She was a cook, and used a butcher's knife to fight off some zombies. She can cook food for the survivors. She is nice, and also keeps up moral.

The Soldier: An off duty soldier, he was visiting his family. He has a gun, and armor. He is a bit slower, though... and he lowers moral.

I really like this. They should all have their own distinct things they do when they're at "home"/ base camp, like the singer could sing songs for the other survivors, while the soldier tells him to shut up... while the cook cooks a can of dog food to the point that it's tolerable and the virus has been burned off of it (if that's possible).


The Mechanic: A guy who worked in a bodyshop with his family, and life was all fun and games... until the zombies came. He carries his wrench around- the one he fought his way out of his home town of Arberdale. He has moderate speed, but is hell with a melee weapon. He also raises morale with fun stories from his past.

The Businessman: He was the CEO of a business that was showing great potential, with profits on the rise and an ever-expanding chain of offices across the country. He was king of the world- until everything went to hell... he escaped from a horde of the zombies in his private helicopter, with his private pilot. He is somewhat slow- not used to the physical labor, but he is decent with a handgun, having gotten a concealed weapon permit. Bonus accuracy with pistols. He lowers morale by constantly whining about how great his business was doing, and how much he hates zombies.

The Pilot: She was a huge fan of aircraft from age 6. Her dreams were to become the best pilot in the world. She eventually followed those dreams, getting a pilot's liscense and starting off flying as a hobby. Once she knew her way around a helicopter well enough, she decided to turn her hobby into a career, being hired as an amitious businessman as his private pilot. After the zombies came, she fled from the offices with the businessman, until they eventually crashed (but survived) and she and her colleague met up with some others, fighting off zombies using makeshift molotovs out of spilled fuel, some bottles of beer in a small fridge on the chopper, a cigarette lighter, and some cloth from the parachutes. She has no effect on morale, usually keeoing to herself, but she can drive anything very well, with the bonus of near-perfect handling, extra speed, vehicles she drives can take more damage, and other perks.

The Engineer: A nerdy guy who was working on his last project when the infection arrived. He can build mines and grenades, and if you bring him the right pieces, he can build turrets!

Thanks, Saucer already said he'll do voice work for The Singer!

Maybe, they'll reveal some of their names, further in the game, or at the end.

The artist - He's an artist. He keeps moral low. His weapon in a paint brush... not much, but eh? He can... paint art... which keeps moral up, but he himself... he's not the greatest person.

The plumber- A simple plumber. He can fix up simple things. His weapon is a pipe. He keeps moral low, with all his complaining.

The doctor- He's a doctor! He can heal your wounds. He keeps moral high, and is a generally nice guy. His weapon is a scalpel.

Ever see The Colony?

It's like this game, except without zombies, and real.

There is an artist... he does nothing, and complains all the time.

The scientist- He brings down morale, but he can stave off the virus ONCE, for ONE person. It only makes the virus go slower, and doesn't stop it completely.

The Bum- He was homeless, and doesn't generally have any skills, besides good work with a hammer. He keeps morale up with stories.

The Lumberjack: He was just a kid in a small town, making a living cutting down trees when the virus struck. He is great with an axe or chainsaw, moves rather quickly, and keeps morale up with stories about his friends and his job.

The Football Player: He was a sports jock, participating in college football when the virus struck. His weapon is a trophy. He has doubled damage with melee weapons, and his effect on morale is passive. Sometimes he raises morale with stories about exciting games, sometimes he complains and lowers morale.

The Detective: He was a respected detective, known for getting work done. He had never failed to solve a case in his life. One day he was called to the scene of a crime expecting a fight or a bunch of teenagers partying, but it turned out to be his first encounter with Solanum. He escaped only with his nightstick and a clip from his revolver. He is pretty fast, and has a double damage increase with melee weapons. He gets a mild increase in pistol accuracy. He can also, after years of tracking down criminals, can warn the player and other survivors when a zombie is in the area, by saying things like "Guys, I've been in a lot of ambushes in my day... this is gonna be one of 'em" or "Guys... watch your backs".
