New OC, Dr. Cephalon by D-Prototype New OC, Dr. Cephalon by D-Prototype
One of my latest characters to be unveiled.  

Name: Dr. Dianne Cephalon
Age: 24
Likes: The scientific method, archaeology, studying, going on digs, clean labcoats, leather jackets
Dislikes: Recklessness, slackers, uncooperative subordinates, stupidity
Good point: Enthusiastic
Bad point: Short temper
Bio: Dr. Dianne Cephalon is a brilliant scientist who helps the young trainees with her expertise.  Though her doctorate is actually in archaeology, she's also dabbled in several other fields as well, like any stereotypical scientist should.  However, she's much more rational than the stereotypical mad scientist, even if she does occasionally get mad at the ignorance of her peers.  Also, she thinks the phrase "For Science!" is total BS.  That thing she's holding is a clipboard made out of hard light.  Oh, and for some reason, she still uses pens in a mostly digital age, judging by the pens in her pocket. One more thing: She may look like a thin, nerdy woman, but she's a lot more dangerous than she looks. She's a born fighter, despite her lack of military training. If a whack of her shovel or pickaxe doesn't take you out, her grenade launcher will. She knows hand-to-hand combat as well.
Guilty Pleasure: Conga Music

Dr. Cephalon and The Baker's Dozen ---> :iconmrcooldd:

She definitely is a cool scientist. In a way, she reminds me of Saya!
And I like her backstory, :)

You really think so?

She is a bit different than Saya, too, though.  For starters, she's older than Saya (she's vaguely in her twenties).  She's a genius, but only really in archaeology, which I guess sort of makes her a bit similar to your Apollo.  Instead of being mission control, her job is to lead archaeological expeditions to search for alien artifacts in ruins.  She might not look it, but she's just as good of a fighter as Saya.  She mainly uses a grenade launcher with a fearsome bayonet on it to keep her enemies at bay, and without it, she can resort to using a shovel or pickaxe as backup.  And she might not have her own personal robot, but she does get to show off some amazing driving skills with a sandcrawler-like vehicle that she and her dig team use.

Her backstory might change a little when she actually appears in the story, but that's the basic idea.

Your Cephalon OC sounds pretty badass! I guess she is somewhat like my Apollo! :D
She sounds like a person not to be trifled with!

Aw, shucks!  And yeah, I guess she sorta is.  Personally, I think I have a few other characters that correspond to Saya more: Dillon is the son of a computer genius who revolutionized the way computers work in their universe, and he's picked up more than enough skills from his father.  He also wears glasses, but only when he's not wearing contacts.  Purple-haired spy Tia is spoiled rich, but she's definitely nowhere as smart as Saya.  Lastly, I have two aliens who fit Saya's mission control role, named Crystallina and Silverio.

Definitely not.  After all, she's not only an important archaeologist, but a mentor who must fight alongside the young trainees.  Even if the mission is supposed to be a simple dig that won't involve any fighting.

You know, I think I like your liney style of coloring certain things like skin! :nod:

Maybe pens mean/do something different in the digital future? Maybe you use them to signify you're a scientist, but they still write, just in case? :D
Or maybe you pass them around as office currency? 'Cause you know how in offices and schools pens keep getting lost or borrowed or walking away, so culture evolved to accommodate that? :XD: I dunno

Okay, maybe I was exaggerating when I said my comic had a paperless future. Basically, they just emphasize digital writing more. Paper still exists, but less people write on it. Dr. Cephalon is one of those people. Also, the Resistance's base has a nice library that pretty much nobody visits except her. That's why characters like to say that she's "librarian hot".

And I guess you'd thought out why she'd have pens after all. :la:

I certainly did.  Oh, and she also collects them.  She has a special one in particular that can scan things, and store data that she can transfer directly to her lightboard (holographic clipboard).

And about the whole "librarian hot" thing... She actually does look different when she's not working in the lab or going on digs: sta.sh/017po4pe8fvz

Sounds like you thought up some good and cool technology for the... Baker's Dozen? ... universe to take place in. Sounds like it's like today's tech enough to be recognizable, but sounds like better stuff that's different also that people might want 8-)

LOL if you put this much thought into her pens then why does the description say "Oh, and for some reason, she still uses pens in a mostly digital age, judging by the pens in her pocket." :XD: Is it mainly like an in-joke to readers where it's not actually a joke but where people who just looked at the picture would take it at face value while longtime readers would chuckle at how all the noobs would be wrong and that this new character had to have a good use for these pens? :slow:

Thanks!

Okay, maybe it might just be an in-joke.  Or something I wrote when I was just really tired.

Well, anyways, I'm glad you like her. I already made a model sheet of her, as well as some of her alternate outfits (no labcoat, archaeologist outfit, pajamas, party dress, etc.). You might see her late into Volume 1 and throughout most of Volume 2.

I pretty much made her characterization as a huge middle finger to that mentality.  I basically deconstruct it with how off-putting it can be to more moral scientists who actually question what they do.  She was once a member of a mad scientist team, but their actions for science (like sacrificing both humans and very human-like robots as test subjects) led her to defecting.  And if she ever does embrace it, she's probably joking, since the most harm she'll ever do is breaking ancient alien artifacts out of rocks.  After all, she's actually an archaeologist, studying other fields on the side.

Oh, well that's a good reason.  That's actually a very valid deconstruction.

Glad you think so. I haven't put much detail into much of her backstory yet, but I'm just laying down some bare bones stuff. Also, for some reason, I guess I really like her as a character, and I feel like she'll be able to fit in just fine with the rest of the cast. She debuts as a main character in Volume 2, conducting a dig for artifacts before anyone else can get to them. Also, some of the guys think she's got hidden beauty potential-- in other words, secretly hot.

I like that--secretly hot.  I like to call it "librarian hot," someone you look at and think "he/she's probably super attractive, it's just that he/she never draws attention to it."

I would like to believe I am librarian hot lol

You know, I think I really like that term now. It also inspired me to draw her reading in the library today. And yesterday, I drew all her alternate outfits. Turns out she looks good in a party dress.

Maybe you are. But you're not a librarian, so…
