Go Get Her, Ray!

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Ray (short for Raegan) is a character that continues to surprise me. I originally brought her in to just provide both another female perspective, but also to be the one cast member that wasn’t a total geek, to give some sort of contrast with the normal dorks. But, as I started writing her, a person started emerging that was sort of like that, but different. This storyline happened, and it showed me a lot about Ray’s character, about what kind of person she was, and what kind of past she’s had.

For the first time, I really feel like I’m writing a character that has very little in common with myself, and I feel like I’m getting to know her as I write her, and she’s not a person thats easy to get to know. The other characters, for me, are somewhat predictable, I know how they’ll react to most situations, but Ray is a total Wild Card. Her “relationship”with Frizz continues to surprise me in strange, and sometimes disturbing ways, but it’s a really fun experience.

Later this year, you’re going to learn a lot more about Ray, and find out more about this band she’s in… I’m looking forward to it!

Oh, and yes, she’s a bass player. Obviously. There’s nothin’ hotter than a fine woman with a bass guitar.
