Characters of Colony-15 pt.1
Every place has it's characters, those unique individuals that give it color and the folklore told to bewildered visitors that seem both incredible and quaint at the same time, and Colony-15 is no different.
Here we present the first pair, brand new greens from Bob Naismith that will soon be released:
Sesil Roek is one of the few people in history that has not only ventured down into the sulfuric canyon wastes below the "livable line" where Colony-15s human inhabitants cling to their hard-scrabble homesteads and survive, but to make a living continuing to do so. Sesil spends weeks at a time collecting various native biota, exploring and mapping the bewildering lowland and canyon maze that is this planet, as well as trading with the occasional Zonii tribe. He is the closest thing to a "native scout" there is, and the Magravate Militia often employ him for various guide and tracking tasks, as well as an intermediary with the less hostile Zonii tribes that occasionally choose to make contact with the Human settlers.
Despite the solitude his wanderings enforce upon him, Sesil is not a loner like most "mountain men". But though he actually enjoys the company of others, he does not suffer those he considers fools, which is also why he spends so much time alone "down slope", swathed in a Zonii made filtered breathing mask and environmentally protected clothing.
Sword-Sergeant Merwe is another story all together. One of The Magrivates own Household Guard, Merwe is an aged veteran soldier sent to act as an adviser to the Militia. His experience, length of service, and loyalty are beyond question, with stories of his deeds and awards for bravery and daring traveling even to this farthest flung reach that is Colony-15. Seen as an almost mythological figure, many were shocked when the Sword-Sergeant arrived and turned out to be a rather dour and severe man rather than the gregarious hero most expected. Many wonder what he had to have done to have been send to this place, while still others wonder what are his true orders or agenda. His weapon of choice, a ponderous type of beamer aptly called an Eliminator, is often the source of jokes amongst militiamen that have not been in the field and witnessed it in action. Despite that, patrols that enter the brackish and foggy lands that separate the misty canyons from the livable uplands breath easier when the Sword-Sergeant is present, as his "little pet" is more than a match for any of the devilish and nasty critters that may be prowling about looking to pounce upon stray livestock or even the unwary farmer of Militiaman.
Both of these figures will soon be released and available as individual figures. More updates on the progress of the next wave of Colony-15 figures will be forth coming. We promise!
