What do the 49ers characters look like?

I quite like the look of Devon-in-my-mind here. This is her before being drafted, in much happier times.

I’m not a good artist. As such, I have to trawl the internet to find an image that slightly resembles the characters I have in mind. I have also tried to not describe the appearance of any characters bar ‘large’ for Gorillas etc. There are a number of reasons for this. The main reason is that I want readers to form their own pictures. The names I’ve used are typically European/British, but this is also the year 2100 when anything beyond that is irrelevant.

However, I have decided to share what I think that Devon looks like, and it’s that lovely lady (or somewhat like her of course) to the left. I should point out that this is a Fantasy Flight Games image, and that I’m in no way planning on using it for anything other than making an illustrative point in this newsletter!

I certainly can’t wait to see what people think the characters look like themselves, and I’m hoping that people who aren’t in the know will produce fan art of their own ideas. It will certainly be a fascinating process.
