I am pretty set on Mina's intro so I'll just continue on working on the comic. I'll probably tweak her description more in the final version
I know I said I wasn't going to introduce Ran nor Dani in Void anytime soon but a story idea for Ran came up so I typed up a rough draft for him to go back to later. Feel free to let me know what you think:
Ran was an elite sniper in the army until he got kicked out for insubordination. After his stint as a soldier, he decided to live a more easygoing life. Ran became a bodyguard for hire - his main client was one of the Void's richest businessman - Robert Dancowen - who would hire Ran to guard his daughter, Dani, from time to time.
However, most of Ran's income was from gambling and he was particularly good at it. He didn't drink so that was his vice - and the occasional sex with women to take some of the edge off.
A lot of people would find Ran abrasive because he was direct and to the point. He never minced his words. He also appeared stoic most of the time. Plus, his unusually high win rate at gambling would sure ruffle some feathers on more than one occasion. Ran was no stranger to fights but he handled himself well and could take a fair amount of beating when it comes to it. Sometimes he'd just allow himself to get hit for fun. Being a trained sniper, he was incredibly patient and calm in most situations. His actions were almost always calculated. He rarely loses his temper.
Life was getting too easy for Ran that everything felt very mundane and meaningless..until that one night when a strange shadowy creature appeared in his apartment....
