I appologize for the fact that I have not posted any new episodes of the comic for the last, what, four months or so. I am working on it when I am able to do so, but progress is a fair bit slower than I would like. In the meantime, I decided to do some screen shots of the cast and add some background for each of them.
Bridget and Cameron
Collins: Not much is known about Bridget at this point. She is a young
and somewhat naive woman living in the town of Megaton. She makes ends
meet by scavenging the nearby ruins for items to sell, and occasionally gets
gifts of caps and equipment from her older brother Daniel, when he has the time
to visit her. Daniel is the only family she apparently has, as she has
mentioned that she never really knew her parents. She has an adventurous
spirit, and thoroughly enjoys heading out on new adventures in the Wasteland.
There is some mystery about her past however. It has been suggested that
Bridget's last name is O'Hara, and not Collins. Whether this is a
misunderstanding or not is yet to be revealed, as are the origin of her fangs.
Bridget is a friendly, yet lonely individual, with no real friends until she
met a Pre-War android by the name of Cameron.
Cameron: Cameron is a Pre-War artificial intelligence (or A.I.) that was
stationed at the Vault 101 Surface Monitoring Station. Cameron has not
revealed much else about her past except that the only person she considered a
friend is dead, and that she now feels "alone in a world not her
own". Meeting Bridget Collins has changed that, giving Cameron a new
friend in this strange, hostile world.
With Bridget as a guide, Cameron plans to explore this broken world in hopes of
discovering what, if anything she can do to help the survivors of the atomic
holocaust. She also intends to learn what it is to be human, hoping to
"evolve" beyond her cold, machine logic, enabling her to, if nothing
else, truly be a friend to Bridget.
Like Bridget, Cameron's past holds mysteries. Who created her and why,
for what purpose? Will she truly work towards helping humanity, or are
her plans more insidious?
Ghost and Sasha Ashe
Her name is a very apt description of the woman that carries it. Ghost's
colouration is almost that of an albino. The only difference between her
and someone with albinism, is the eyes: an albino has unusually red-hued eyes,
where as Ghost does not. Her name also describes her ability to
move. She can be very quiet on her feet, as well as hard to spot if she
does not wish to be seen. Born and raised in a Vault with her cousin
Crystal, Ghost quickly adopted a hunter's mentality once in the Wasteland,
although adjustment to life on the surface has been difficult for her.
The settlements of Megaton and Big Town are her homes in equal measure, with
her best friend Sasha Ashe living in Megaton, and her cousin living in a
compound in Big Town. A person would be hard pressed to find a more loyal
friend than Ghost.
Sasha Ashe: Another character with a mysterious past, Sasha refuses to discuss
her life before she arrived in Megaton. The only hint we have about her
past is a connection with a pair of Regulators, by the name of Silas Caine and
A smart and deadly young woman, she frequently collaborates with Moira Brown on
projects, and has a grasp of military tactics that is normally only found in
experienced people at least twice her age. Due to her sharp mind and
reluctance to speak of the past, she found a kindred spirit in her friend Ghost.
Silas Caine and Stryder
Caine: A long time member of the Regulators, Silas has spent many years trying
to make the Wasteland a safer place for his fellow man. Looking back, he
has seen how futile his attempts have been up until now, yet he continues to
try, as he knows no other way.
About ten years ago, Silas and his partner at the time, Rhenstad Temple,
encountered a young Sasha Ashe. All that is known of this encounter is
that it resulted in Temple being severely wounded, and taken away by something
or someone calling itself a Valkyrie. Neither Silas nor Sasha will talk
about what happened. It might be some time, if ever, before we learn
Stryder: Stryder is a rather new member of the Regulators. His current
partner and mentor, Silas Caine, doesn't really enjoy having to break in the
youngster, especially since Stryder's bright outlook on life is grating on
Silas' rather jaded one.
Bright outlook on life or no, Stryder can be counted on to do his job
efficiently. You could do worse than to have him watching you back.
The Black Host
Although it has not yet been mentioned by name, the Black Host is the
mysterious organization to which Maeva belongs, along with her superior, Adam,
and his superior, Lady Drusilla.
Maeva: All we know of the red-headed woman called Maeva is she is black hearted,
mercenary and manipulative. Killing seems to be her business, and it is
one she thoroughly enjoys. Those she employes are just a means to an end,
tools that she can and will cast aside as soon as they are no longer useful.
Not much seems to frighten Maeva. She is more than willing to go
toe-to-toe with a Supermutant with nothing more than a combat knife, or even
her bare hands if necessary, but she would prefer to do the job from a distance
with a hail of lead, or a grenade or four. There is one thing we have
learned that frightens Maeva more than anything in the Wasteland: The Elders of
the Black Host, such as Lady Drusilla.
Adam: We currently know less about Adam than we do Maeva. We know that
he holds a superior rank to Maeva in the organization, and like Maeva, not
much, if anything scares him, except the Elders.
Lady Drusilla: What is it about this tiny woman that terrifies the likes of
people such as Adam and Maeva? You would not know just from looking at
her, as she is a small, waif-like woman. It does not take long in her
presence though, to realize that this almost child-like creature seems to ooze
power, confidence and control. There is something not right about her
pale skin, fiery eyes, and elongated canines. She is a predator, plain
and simple, a being at the top of the food chain. It is not what you can
see about her that is most frightening about her...it is what you can't see.
She is an Elder in an organization that respects
only power, and she has more than earned the right to hold the rank she does.
