Actors & Performers

BEATRICE “TRIXI” STEELE Lead, Female 21+
A former Nox employee in their engineering department; was fired after she began asking too many questions about her brother’s death; fled with pieces of Valens and salvaged what pieces she could of Ben-i before founding Trixi’s Quarter.

Motivation: To shut down Nox and its surveillance technology.

Trixi carries herself with a powerful presence, commanding respect from those around her. In general, she’s pretty talkative and quick-witted. Pretends to do shots with her customers but actually stays sober.

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

DAMON “NOMAD” LUCK Male, 21+
A former Nox computer scientist who’s disgusted with what the corporation has done; wants to take them down and reclaim technology for the people. Left Nox and found Trixi’s Quarter.

Motivation: To bring down Nox and democratize its technology for the people.

Damon is always sharply dressed though physically pretty plain. He wears thick-rimmed glasses and is a little scruffy. He always has a whiskey in hand but never seems to be drinking. He’s jittery—knees bounding, fingers tapping, and seems to smile at nothing.

THYME HOOK Female, 21+

Another former Nox employee, Thyme was disposed of by the company when they realized she was all brains and no brawn. Now Thyme is a digital bot fighter, thanks to a number of gadgets Trixi has been able to procure for her in the past.

Motivation: To make her grand debut as a robot fighter and take down Nox.

Thyme wears ragged, dirty clothes and has an undercut of greasy hair. She always sounds bored, ready to be anywhere but here—if you get her talking about her robots though she won’t stop talking. She’s a slob and doesn’t care; dirt, grime, and robot oil are her accessories. She picks her nails and blows her hair out of her face because she doesn’t have time to put it up again.

PHOENICIA THATCHER Female, 21+
Phoenicia grew up in Austin and worked in the Nox mines. The terrible work and fumes led her to become quite forgetful and anxious. Although she’s close with those at the Quarter, her best friend is online: a kind woman named Bullettooth Tink. She’s shy, courteous and polite.

Motivation: To live free of Nox’s terror and to form meaningful relationships in the digital and physical world.

Phoenicia has heterochromatic eyes. She wears long dresses, long sleeves, high necks. She likes to have something in hand to mess with, and keep her mind off her anxieties.

Motivation: To protect her loved ones from Nox’s surveillance and be able to live her life
