This one's arrival was heralded by a somewhat dark time for me. Various family problems, and a bathroom remodeling that went south fairly quickly as well as my issues with Colonial Marines had left me in a bit of a downspiral. When my brother, the one that counts anyway, found me I was sitting in a corner muttering to my Azorius deck. After a drawn out couple of hours of him nudging me with his foot. He showed me a picture it was of a werewolf transformation and he asked me what I thought of it. He then told me to glimpse through DArt see what jumped to mind. He then whispered to me that he knew where I kept my Akromas and that their right about the proper thickness for him to test the sharpness of his Kukris.
So with that urging I started to brainstorm and ponder and then the idea struck me "spy".
What followed next was a somewhat garbled communication with the artist known as Johnny Haradrim [link]
the dude's worth it folks, to borrow the popular phrase "his skillz be money yo".
With this Mackenzie was born.
Mackenzie is a catgirl/catwoman, I originally was thinking sort of a spy/kitsune but then after seeing how Mr. Haradrim draws his catgirls my decision seemed obvious. Of course this also made the original title I thought of for this feel somewhat awkward.
She considers herself a mistress of disguise which helps her with her goals. The power harness wrapped around her body both further boosts her strength, she on her own has the strength of a male olympic level weightlifter but the harness gives her the strength equivalent of Spider-Man. It also aids her climbing abilities by allowing her to stick to surfaces via a magnetic lock like system.
My next obstacle in developing this character was crafting a backstory for and after seeing the finished product I came up with around four. So winnowing them down became a real thrill. The end result I'm proud of but that shall wait for another time.
Sorry for the brainfart delay, but this particular girl wouldn't have come out quite so well if not for the inspiration provided by [link]
