Character Spotlight: The Close Friend: Rose

                                                             Rose: Early Rendition

Rose is a character in the proposed game world with strong ties to the Aella. As the game progresses, players will experience certain developments between them, some of which will explore key events in the history of their relationship.

She will also be a playable character, with unique gameplay mechanics that are essential to completing certain aspects of the game.

Rose was conceptualized around the same time as Aella, and what I had in mind was a character that didn't fit into the crowd. A quirky individual with a clouded and mysterious past. I initially opted for a 'best friend' scenario with both characters knowing each other since their childhood days. However, as development progressed, the idea has transformed into a more interesting one.

The image at the top of this post is an unfinished rendition of what I wanted for Rose (she was meant to be a 'biker girl'). This unfinished concept has been reworked several times over, and the definitive concept for Rose is something I believe the potential audience will relate to in many ways. Consider her an alternative styled character.

I am excited about bringing Rose to life, and I simply can't wait to finish the modelling aspect of her character creation.

Keep your eyes peeled for more Spotlights!
