Character Tally

Post by Vagrant Orpheus » Wed Sep 16, 2009 1:33 pm

So I got bored and decided to count up how many character bios everyone has created. I pretty much went through the stickied list of characters, and then added on the ones from O1 that haven't been added to the list yet. So it should be a pretty accurate account.

However, this doesn't take into account characters that have been decanonised or are otherwise in limbo due to completed or planned rewrites of their bios or other relevant articles (eg Mobius due to Project Aces, Symbiote due to the revamp of the Symbiote Project, Marxman due to my decanonising of the Chronokremlin, etc etc). It's just an overall count of character bios that have existed. It doesn't take into account characters that haven't had bios, and thus people such as Quartermass, The Boss, Phaeton, Vice's Sins and so on also aren't counted in the tally.

Mal: 33
Vic: 26
Ford: 14
Shroom: 41
Siege: 22
Arty: 11
Moby: 8
Orph: 24
Speaker-to-Trolls: 12
Kamin: 17
Heretic: 2
Booted: 3
Per: 14
Zor: 1
Militum: 3
Dakarne: 1

2 for me! I'm not counting 'Dragonhand' any more. He needs a bigass overhaul to even be mediocre.

If you take out decanonised/undergoing-overhaul characters, you can halve Moby's count, and mine drops back by a fair few, I know that much. I have Vice and Soldier to rework at the very least, and Marxman, Parasite and Symbiote have all been decanonised, pretty much.

If I actually finish my current projects and get to Comix!, I can expect my tally to potentially reach 8 or 9 (I've still got to cover the rest of Project Sentinel that I've mentioned off hand). Good to know for reference.

My character was decanonised when I sort of imported the character over to Section 20.

That's a surprisingly large total for me, actually. I can't even remember that many of them off the top of my head. Hve you counted all my ensemble characters?

I only counted the ones in the Hall of Heroes thread and the ones that have had recent bios posted in the H/V forum. For instance, the only New Ghost I counted was Diamond Locust because he was the only one you did a full bio for. Are there any other ensemble characters you're wondering about?

Nothing much, really. It's just very likely that the current profiles in the organization topics will be all the New Ghost and Axis Commando characters will be getting, because I have neither the time nor the inclination to write anything longer.

HA! I haven't even posted an article in this newfangled Comix forum and I'm up to 12?
