Ok, so I've got a couple different character ideas for characters, so I think I'll toss them at the wall and see what sticks.
First off, as this seems to be a fantasy-ish/sorta-steampunk-ish type setting, I've got an idea for the ship's cat. Well, that wouldn't technically be their position - more of a joke among the crew, really - as their actual job would be the ship's mage/maybe navigator type character. The character could either be a very effeminate pretty boy/androgynous guy, or a very androgynous intersex character. Probably something along the lines of a kemonomimi/catboy species that's somewhere between the sort you would see in anime/manga and a little more anthro, but not full on furry. Very uptight sort of personality, prim and proper, and had no idea what they were getting themselves into when they first signed onto the crew.
Well, either that or they're a passenger that may (will) end up a permanent member of the crew.
Then I've got a sorta middle-aged, cynical, deadpan snarker of a necromancer/healer. He's human, kind of a jerk-with-a-heart-of-gold, and an exiled nobleman. He's apparently asexual (he hasn't met the right person yet), though there is speculation that he may be a necrophiliac (he's not, but he seems immune to the wiles of the brothel workers).
He's very protective of those he considers to be under his care or part of his "group", though he typically shows this by being rather cross with them when they do something stupid or getting themselves sick/injured.
Any thoughts or opinions?
