Skeedoy’s Supporting Cast

The other type of Super Sunday I have done is the expansion of some character’s supporting cast. This week, we’ll do it for a character from the first alien year.

Skeedoy’s Supporting Cast

Skeedoy is a private investigator on the planet Dellwell. He’d be happy sticking to small cases, but they don’t pay enough. Instead, he gets stuck dealing with things that are quite over his head. These are some of the people he has to put up with:

Halch

Halch is Graats’s sidekick. Though not a supersoldier like him, Halch is highly trained in combat and has been very useful on his mission to stop evil criminal organizations. But now Graats has gone missing, apparently captured, and Halch has hired Skeedoy to help find him. Though the super soldier has many criminal enemies, Halch thinks that the kidnappers could be the government, trying to Graats to create more supersoldiers. Skeedoy wants to investigate the case, but is not used to having a kid that insists on tagging along.

Mave

Mave is a government-sponsored supehero and is also the law enforcement officer who Skeedoy deals with a lot. As far as Mave is concerned, it is ridiculous to think that the government would capture Graats, considering that he is just a supersoldier, and since his creation they have invented real superheroes, with powers beyond being good at fighting. Mave, for example, is living rubber and capable of bouncing around like a ball (and Skeedoy notes that some of the others have good powers instead). But deep down, Mave is nervous, because his superiors have been hiding something, and Mave doesn’t know what it is.

Egate

Egate is a criminal that has crossed paths with Skeedoy in the past, and who seems to know something about the case. Egate, who prides himself on only being a thief, nothing more evil than that, recently broke into the headquarters of one of Graats’s enemies, and found documents about his capture that he is willing to sell to Skeedoy. What he has not told Skeedoy is that he also found a serum that they had made from the supersoldier’s blood, that the documents claim is the first step in achieving immortality. That is something Egate wants more than all the stolen riches in the world.

Dsurey

Dsurey is an alien immigrant to planet Dellwell, and even though it gives a bad name to other immigrants, Dsurey hangs out with bad crowds. Working at a gathering hall for the criminal element, Dsurey cleans up after the scum of the world and socializes with them when possible. From time to time, he picks up tips that could be useful to Skeedoy, who pays Dsurey in fresh water, a hard resource to find on Dellwell. But when Dsurey stumbles across the biggest piece of information he’s ever heard of, will the water be worth the risk?

Super Sunday: Dellwellians

Dellwellians

The Dellwellians are a humanoid species whose homeworld (Dellwell) is in a relatively small, but very populous galaxy, which they call The Circle. In most galaxies, the meeting of two intelligent species is a momentous event, but with over a thousand species in a pretty tight space (cosmologically speaking), it’s pretty standard here. When Dellwellians invented their version of telescopes five centuries ago, there was enough activity present in their skies that there was no doubt, they were not alone in the universe. First contact came and went, and the Delwellians joined a galactic neighborhood that was active and lively.

Some Dellwellians do leave the planet, but many just remain on the homeworld, which has become very built-up and over populated. The planet’s location, near galactic shipping lines, makes it an ideal stop for spacefarers of other species.

Masgel is a typical young Dellwellian. She has given birth to one child, and raises it while she pursues her own education. When she is older, she will abandon her young and go on to a career. She is hoping to get into the entertainment industry.

Chisnee is one of those few Dellwellians who spend more of their life off Dellwell than on. Working with a shipping company, Chisnee is a translator who tries to keep language and customs operating smoothly between the many different species encountered on a regular basis. Since the galaxy has been operating like this for a long time, there are vast databases on the subject, but it seems like there’s always some new thing that alien species will find to hate about one another.

Skeedoy is the Dellwellian equivalent of a private detective. If someone needs a problem solved, they hire Skeedoy to do what he can to help. Because of this occupation, Skeedoy has seen the worst that Dellwell has to offer, and the worst that the rest of the galaxy brings to the planet. He’s become a very cynical and bitter sort. He’s not just world-weary, he’s galaxy-weary.

A Fact About Dellwellians: When Dellwellians reach sexual maturity, they are female-like in nature, possessing something similar to the egg and womb system of humans. When they run out of eggs, their body switches to a more male-like form, providing the sperm equivalent. After that they spend the last half of their life asexual.
