THE YOUNG WOMAN was taken in by her UNCLE after the death of her father and mother to "HIS" hands. She's grown up after surviving her battle wounds, as she too barely made it out alive. She now wields weapons of her and her uncle's designs. Not only is she battling against "Him," but she's battling for the freedom of her brainwashed TWIN BROTHER, who "He" controls.
Recommended process: Design the thumb-nails of all of them and flesh out the best of characters/environment. Establish time periods, target audience, and final platform, or medium (design with the end in mind).
DESIGNS and QUESTIONS to CONSIDER.
1. The Young Woman: Must be "Young" in appearance (I'm cool with Vampire or elf like age); It's up to you if she knows if her twin brother is alive or not (does she know she's fighting her brother?) Remember battle scars. Has she lost anything besides her parents? (Is one of her arms mechanical? Perhaps an eye patch? Or just visible scarring? )
2. The Uncle: Must be older than young woman (Maybe close to the same age? How would that change the dynamics?) An inventor, or designer of sorts. Does he have a strange process for designing? Sketches all over (clichéd) or through 3-d? (Maybe cheesy After Effects videos). Does he too have battle wounds? Doesn't have to be a true uncle ("Just call me uncle Jeff").
