Here's a complete re-imagining of the first character I proposed: The Captain.

He is a completely batshit insane motherfucker hellbent on murdering the sea monster that stole his arm.

Oh, neat. I was just thinking about The Captain yesterday, and how if he was more of a Cervantes de Leon type of character, he could work as a true rival to The Mayor. Complete with utterly failing to top The Mayor at every turn.

Still like The Captain moniker better.

Spoilers: the sea monster that stole his arm was The Mayor, who was practicing pearl diving in possibly-barracuda-infested waters.

I'd suggest "The Cap'n" but I think that implies something about his crunchberries.

New character idea, no name. She's a young Asian prodigy who has successfully hardwired the brain of a bear to do her bidding.

ADDENDUM: Also, I feel that the non-The Mayor player characters (such as Fucko and The Captain might be) should be called "Cronies". When you gain a new character, for example, you get a message exclaiming that "FUCKO is a crony now!" or something to that extent.

Sammy is a great character that I am THIS close to approving, but I'm drawing up some more reference files to round him out with. Could use a last name too, even if it is never used.

Sammy confirmed for Mayor.

Sexy sprite is sexy.

Voting that Sammy's last name be an improbable combination of Italian and Russian.  Like Torregrossa-Merizova.

Voting to leave him completely lastnameless.  Sammy is who he is.  Sammy is what he is.  All he is is Sammy.

Probably the vanity talking, but it seems appropriate enough for CEO of Earth to make a cameo at some point.

:cake: Risotto-Vatrushka. Delicious!

CEO of Earth (CEO of World? CEO of God Damn Ocean?) should either stop in, or be a playable character altogether, with a similar sized sprite to The Mayor. To differentiate him from Sammy, we'd want to make Sammy more gangster. Colored pin-striped suit with an open collar.

Sammy is who I am.  Sammy is what I am.  All I am is Sammy.

Bonus: After he says this about himself, his loudmouth sister blows the mystery by revealing their ridiculous full names.

The Shining Force type of angle in that last picture makes me wonder if that could be done for the battle sprites.

So, are you looking at a more specific SF "up the ass" view or something more spread out like Breath of Fire?

Maybe this could be a comic strip. Just saying.

Update: The previous entries were characters originally proposed by Skull Club members for The Mayor Videogame.

Please feel free to use this thread to cook up new areas.

No promises on what will be used in the new narrative, but pretending is fun!
