( a thing that goes vaguely hand-in-hand with this meta-ish post )
Joanna’s appearing in Iron Crown at some point (cough soon) so I thought it’d be a nice chance to take a swing at these character sheets again!
As the patron saint of guns, gold, and gin, she’s the unofficial vodka aunt demon consultant and sniper that Isandar calls in for challenging jobs, or when she needs a surgical strike. Brutally competitive and lives for the hunt, Joanna doesn’t care how much she needs to get her hands dirty as long as it’s in the name of her one mission in life - killing said demons.
While also abrasive, cynical, and foul-mouthed (to put it mildly) outside the job, she has an amusing quirk of giving nicknames to everyone in the crew - Tango promptly took her given nickname from the day they met, which solidified their friendship mostly based on explosions (and salt). Only Isandar knows anything about her before being a sniper-for-hire, but there’s a decent amount of speculation of her unusual familiarity with the Judges and how they operate. Then again, that just may have to do with their shared efficiency of purifying the margins of the world from the unholy monsters.
(Layout of character sheet with bonus astro signs is nabbed from @chirart, who’s a boss at anything character-design related! Seriously, go follow her for the good stuff.)
Continuing the IC character ref sheets - here’s Commander Isandar!
Calm and pragmatic with a voice like a foghorn - she’s led the Iron Crown Brigade for decades and is a familiar -and feared- sight at the Imperium’s warring borders. Ambivalent about many of her clients (and the few journalists that interview her), she nonetheless holds a strong moral code - likewise with her crew, who remain fiercely loyal even despite facing suicidal contracts and hordes of Fell (demons). The pay’s worth it, they say.
Isa’s a bit of an adrenaline junkie, too - thankfully Joanna’s usually there to talk her out of the wilder schemes (as the freelance ‘Fell consultant’ and off-and-on girlfriend). (One of those involved several gunships, a crate of melons, and half the Imperium treasury. Don’t ask.)
