This is Laura, June’s older sister, who is so not into this whole “nerd” scene, and would very much rather go to Matt’s party, kthx.
Laura is a popular girl, trying to protect her sister from becoming a social outcast. She is a closed-minded and closed-off character who is very bad at expressing herself; most of her comments come off as personal attacks, even though she’s usually just expressing concern, confusion, or discomfort.
Laura’s main conflict is derived from her desire to protect her sister, and her crippling fear of being judged and humiliated for being associated with anything outside the “norm”. Laura’s always trying to reach out and protect June; she just really, really, really sucks at it.
Ted is a comic book artist who created the “Vox Warrior Goddess” series. He’s open-minded and reliable; but, very excitable when faced with his favorite things (aliens and space travel). He loves science fiction (novels, comic books, movies), though he prefers the classics. His guilty pleasure is Barbarella.
So…I couldn’t figure out what to do for my portfolio, and opted to just design the characters and storyboard a scene from the short script I wrote last year.
ON THAT NOTE: This is June, who decides to cosplay for Comic Con, gets mistaken for a real Ewok, and is kidnapped by a couple of aliens to be taken back with a bunch of other cosplayers as their pet. DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUN.
June is Laura’s younger sister, and they don’t see eye to eye on ANYTHING. June is tired of Laura trying to “shape” her into a mini-Laura and just wants to be accepted for who she is.
