    CHoW#277 :: Time Assassin

    Character of the Week #277
    Time Assassin

    Design an assassin character who travels back and forth in time

    DEADLINE: SUNDAY 12th FEB 9PM GMT+1 (8PM GMT)
    Check your timezone!

    In the 42nd Century a secret agency is formed and tasked with sending highly trained assassins through time. Their targets are chosen so that their deaths alter aspects of the timeline in an attempt to avoid major catastrophes.

    These Time Assassins work alone, slipping from one destination to another, rarely ever returning to their period of origin. Without backup or support from the Agency, Assassins must survive however they can, often having to repair gear or replace clothes with whatever they can find in the era they are in. As a result, they often look completely mismatched, with styles and technology from both past and future civilisations.

    Your task is to design one of these assassins. Think carefully about their life; how they kill their targets; what eras they may have already been to; do they keep any trophies from each kill? Also think about their technology; how do they receive new orders?; or travel from one time to another?

    Remember that these characters are assassins; they operate on secrecy and discretion. They are smart and calculating and can make use of anything they find.


    The Guidelines:
    • Can be Male OR Female
    • Can be any style or genre
    • Consider multiple eras when designing tech and attire
    • It must be clear that they travel through TIME!
    • Consider how long they have been doing this job.
    • Think carefully about the weapons an assassin might use



    THE RULES
    In addition to the brief, if you do not follow these rules, you will not be included in the poll.
    • Files must be named: CHoW#277_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow277final.jpg will not be accepted)
    • Finals must be posted in the finals thread BEFORE the deadline
    • Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
    • At least 3/4 of the focus character must be visible
    • Final images must be accompanied with a basic character sheet in a separate image
Character sheets should at the very least show a sketch of the front and back of the character and a couple of early thumbnails/silhouettes.
    • Follow the brief!

    First draft, there's a couple of things I like but overall I'm redoing this one.

    Sorry for the double post, I couldn't figure out how to edit my previous post to add another attachment.

    Done for tonight; I'll work on some more stuff tomorrow.

    Time's a wastin'

    Weeeeeeeeeeee! Here I go on another one... maybe I'll finish this time yuk yuk

    I don't want it to look like a catwalk costume, so some of the accoutrements may need modification or elimination. She doesn't look stealthy at all, so... anywaaaaaaaaay...

    I was thinking WWII, Roman Empire (but the immensity of the tunics are not really practical for assassination, methinks), the present, and the far, far future... all of which may be revised...

    Intriguing topic. The thing that bugs me the most is that if a 42th century assassin would come over you could safely assume that his tech is so advanced there wouldn't be a need to repair it with relics from the past, nor would it be in any way compatible?

    On another note: They 'operate on secrecy and discretion'. The entries I'm seeing right now from all of you would be out of place even if there was a carnival dimension they'd travel to :p

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.

    You're very right, but don't you just love the idea of trying to fix a piece of tech with some twine and scraps of leather... there's something nice and macgyver about it all

    NickyBeats, love your concept, it's so detailed and there is a right mood in it))

    My first sketches. He's always cold-blooded and got that look on his face that says "No, you can't see my hi-tech-time-travelling-suit. No, even if it's sticking out of my clothes. No, i'm just a random worker, and NO, I'M NOT GOING TO KILL KENNEDY!!!" =D
    Anyway, gonna add some details, add that, delete this...)

    The whole thing is contradictory, it's impossible to be discrete wearing garments from all over history, even if they are all black.

    Also, the whole concept of a time traveling assassin is kind of silly; why wouldn't you just travel to when the target was a baby and take them out easy as pie? Not a whole lot of training needed for that.

    That's what my guy is going to do, he just kills babies in their cribs.

    I would just send a high-tech nano bomb doomsday thing back through time, why bother sending people at all ^_^
