Character Time!

Owing to the two drawings I have posted (Among other things.), I have been told that more information about the characters is needed. Look no farther. Today, I give to you..... character backgrounds! *insert cheering here*


This is the furry demon-thing you saw in the last post. Wolva is my main character, and is the most commonly used. She (Yes, Wolva is female.) is a fan-character from the Marvel Universe.

Creation Backstory
I created Wolva shortly after first learning about the X-Men via the first X-Men movie. I really enjoyed the character of Wolverine, and decided to create something like that. As a result, Wolva has always possessed foot-long claws that extend between her knuckles, animal-keen senses, and the ability to heal body tissue at a superhuman rate.

Originally, she looked like a female version of her 'parent character'. Now, as shown by the drawing, she looks more like an anthropomorphic wolverine or wolf. As for body structure, that picture of her is very misleading. Normally, she has the body build of, well, a female Wolverine. To draw that picture the way I wished it to look, I attempted to imitate the style of Jhonen Vasquez, whose characters are thin to the point of being stick figures.

Wolva's Personality and Stuffs
For starters, Wolva is usually a mutant in the Marvel Universe. She is Canadian, and has a personal grudge against Justin Bieber. In terms of her personality, she has a very dark sense of humor, is quite cynical, and has definite ideas of how the world should work. She is not the most social of people/mutants, and is more than happy to be left alone. She has a very short temper, and it doesn't take much to bring her into the depths of a feral rage. Once in that rage, it's very hard to calm her down, if you manage to get close enough.....

Wolva's past is a very uncertain thing. Every version of Wolva has a unique past (She appears in several universes as various...things.), and this is usually complicated by the fact that most of Wolva's memories are missing. The reasoning for this changes from storyline to storyline, but the most common reason is that she had a run-in with a secret organization in her past that removed her memories and preformed various experiments on her. This experimentation is part of the reasons for her anger issues, and a few other things.

If you have any more questions about her, or if you want me to post some of the stories concerning Wolva and her various issues, comment something to that effect.

Johnny C. , a.k.a. Nny

Johnny C., commonly called 'Nny', is the main character of a graphic novel called 'Johnny the Homicidal Maniac'. If you can't tell from the title of the graphic novel what one of his issues is, then I cannot help you.

Nny (Pronounced 'Knee', for those of you that care.) is an insane thrill-killer who elaborately slaughters people who annoy or insult him. The blood of these victims he uses to feed a Wall in one of the many levels of his basement. This Wall is containing a creature made of pure negativity, and is commonly called the Moose. (The Moose resembles a shoggoth on steroids, for those that really want to know these things.) Nny has four headvoices, three before he dies and one after dying. The three prior to being killed went by the names of Nail-Bunny, Mr. Eff (same as Mr. Fuck), and Psycho-Doughboy. The one that appeared after he returned from Heaven and Hell is called Reverend Meat.

Not much is actually known about Nny's past, as Jhonen Vasquez showed no interest in giving him a full backstory. Speculations usually run along the lines that Nny was once an artist before being possessed by the Doughboys and fun stuff like that. More information on Nny and his 'friends' is available at Wikipedia, or by asking me to email you.

Johnny and 'friends' are copyright to Jhonen Vasquez

As for why I like these two characters, here goes nothing.
Wolva's personality is actually quite close to my own. She is my personal stress reliever, as well, and I occasionally use her to commit acts of violence I cannot.
Nny, Nny is a completely different story. I like him because, in a way, I admire him. He isn't constricted by much in the way of rules, and knows exactly what the limits of the human mind are, and pushes them constantly.

I draw them because I really like their characters, and they are actually very natural for me when I'm in the right mood to draw someone who can and will, if provoked, kill you.
