Chase - Character Sheet by Skailla Chase - Character Sheet by Skailla
Gender: Male
Breed: Border Collie ([link])
Age: 36 years old
Size: 51 cm
Nicknames/Aliases: "Vulture".
Function: Gambler and mercenary. Works for Jeffrey.
Personality: Sly and furtive as a fox, Chase likes to put his nose where it doesn't belong. He is never to be trusted, and has no problem on changing sides whenever it seems convenient for him, specially when there is money involved: he is capable of doing absolutely anything for a couple of dollars, giving him one of worst reputations around Gold Marrow.
He is completely addicted to gabling, but luck never seems to be on his side. He gets involved with the wrong types during his games, and most of the times ends up being caught into very dangerous situations.
On the other hand, Chase can be surprisingly selfless when it comes to his nephews, although he doesn't like to show it. He dedicates most of the money he earns with his own blood to give them a comfortable life (or at least he tries to). His niece, Marsha, worries a lot about his ways of gaining money, and both have a very difficult relationship, but they still stick together as a family.

Background: Chase's family was neither too good nor too bad. His father was a drunk, and his mother tried to make a living selling tissues. His older brother, Roger, left home early, and moved to the city looking for a better life. His sister, Gloria, married and left home as well. Chase soon decided to leave too, even thought he didn't have any sorts of plans. He worked with absolutely everything and everyone, but always ended up being kicked out.
Some time later, Gloria's husband died from an accident, and she got sick from a very strong and unknown disease, and no doctor was able to find out what was wrong with her. Robert soon came to know about it and decided to take his sister with him to the city, where he believed they could find a cure for her sickness. Gloria had to trust her three kids, Marsha, Daniel and her newborn baby, Sherry, to Chase, since she had no other options. Chase's way of life was way too opposite to fulfill her request, and he wasn't exactly happy about this.
Sustaining the kids was an even harder task then he expected it to be, and many times he wasn't able to bring food for them to eat. His way of life was getting lower and dirtier, until he finally met Jeffrey. Jeffrey offered him a well remunerated job, which would provide them enough money to have a comfortable life, but it also had it's prices. Chase would have to work for one of the dirtiest associations that ever walked the surroundings of Gold Marrow, and do everything they asked him to. Once he was in, there would be no turning back. Chase pays a hard price for his job, and is hated and abused by both sides: Jeffrey and all of his own neighbors. But at least now he has ways to bring food for his nephews and get money for his addicting nights of gambling.

Relations: Uncle of Marsha, Dany and Sherry. Older brother of Gloria and younger brother of Roger. Works for Jeffrey, and is hated by the rest of the town.

Additional information:
The rope he carries around his neck was once from a gallows (a huge mess with his poker partners), which he luckily got away alive. He keeps it as some sort of luck amulet, and can also use it to get away from difficult situations.

He looks mentally strong, as well as physically. But personally, I believe this character will be misunderstood by the rest. He only means well but will gets shunned for putting his own needs aside to help his family... not that anyone knows that. But it does make me wonder how when people see someone going the wrong way and getting involved with the wrong crowd... they always think it's intentional. I love this character! I bet you, he's got a heart of gold. He just can't prove it :( Poor guy :/

I hope he gets the chance to redeem himself :)

You don't know how glad I am to se this character sheet! :) I just couldn't wait for it from the time I saw him in the sketchdump.
And to admit, you surprised me again really well! What a nice personality! (And what a tragic bakground... :() Now I don't know whether Chase or Edgar (or Steban) is my favourite from all! :D
Thank you for inventing him!
Sedomix Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012
His personality and backstory matches his apperance so much. That is how I imagined a typical fallen gambler looks like. As a doggy of course.
TheBattyCrow Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Chase reminds me of my crow OC Kale, a gambler. He usually ends up in not-too-nice situations, either.
I like that he's given that responsibility of looking after his niece and nephews. he seems like a nice guy deep down :)
RayfordSteele Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yay!! It seems like it's been forever since I've seen a Skailla drawing in my inbox! :la:
Couldn't have this story with a border collie! haha

Quite an interesting background Chase has. It's a very believable scenario, good work! Again lol.

I've seen most of your work,
But I have no idea what Up and Ahead is Cx
vuk-91 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Skailla's new flagship story besides Over the Mountain and Far Away.
VEE141 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Is the story a comic?
Or literature? Where does I find it? o3o
vuk-91 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The U&A is yet under development as Skailla stated it in her journal FAQ. You will, tho, see pictures of Steban and other Up and ahead characters in Skaillas gallery. And reference sheets too.
