Never Meet Your Heroes
Except this one.
Siva. Preserver Clan. Archivist. Techno-hacker. History buff…
He’s also an outlaw on the run from the authorities. (Not to parallel with the real life Ezra Miller…) However, our Ezra is on the run from a different set of authorities. For a different set of reasons: Revealing the truth.
Glyph—the de facto faction in control of New Albyion, where our hero Ezra, resides. Has a strong grip on the inhabitants of Apeiros and Ezra’s actions has led him to be the target of a colony wide manhunt…
Class: Mid-Sector, New Albyion
What makes our hero so special?
Nothing will get you into more trouble than being curious. Or an innocent mistake. That’s what Ezra has ended up in: a victim of circumstance surrounding the history of his people—the Siva—and his mysterious heritage. Any peeking into that lineage is considered a crime by the Upper Echelon of Glyph authorities.
Trained by the enigmatic and stoic emissary and leader of the Preservers—Tysin—Ezra came to learn the ways of physical combat and ancient languages, including the surviving history of the Siva. Spending hours under Tysin’s tutelage collecting rare artifacts from Apeiros and across the galaxy, delving deep and deeper into the mysteries of the Sacred Elements of Apeiros.
Guiding him to keep inline with the tenets of their ancestors, Harmony being the most important. However, this is not what is in line with Glyph’s propaganda of: “Our truth. Our way.” (More on that later…)
The makings of a good/great character
Ezra’s drive comes from his past. Never truly knowing how it all started and what came before as the history of his people the Siva has been lost to time.
Wanting to liberate the remaining Siva on New Albyion; this motivation is further ignited when he uncovers damaging information from the powers that be, effectively making him the epicenter of a planet-wide manhunt.
[I believe] Great and authentic characters arise from a strong sense of desire. Desire of accomplishment and overcoming.
