SENIOR THESIS PART 1- Maroon the Double Agent
Maroon was a big challenge for me. As a female gamer, I'm constantly getting annoyed with over-exposed, over sexed female characters. I wanted Maroon to be attractive and formidable, without resorting to cliche big boobs with a big gun type of thing. She is a cop (possibly a double-crossing one if players chose to take that route) who has a sharp shot, a sharp mind, and a sharp tongue. Despite her talents, she is a newbie, unaccustomed to intense situations, and has a tendency to loose all rationality and start shooting fire balls everywhere.
Her costume was tricky. Initially, I was making it TOO badass. Too many spikes and bells and whistles for a gal who was new to the force. I decided to go with a uniform instead of a trench coat, with some pinstripes and a tie to reference crime noir.
