    Might we have an act 4 character background good sir?

    I aim to please, however, i would point out that Act 4 centers around Priscilla and Jasper both of whom have character backgrounds. I honestly don’t believe Soldier 7285 needs a background. The only background i always meant to write down (i ‘ve already thought about it in my head) is for Act 3 character Amelia.

      After I read priscilla’s bio I realized it was act 4, my mistake.

    Since the Dieselpunk Opera is out, can we have a character background for Thomas? He was a pretty major character even though he is not an O’Brien.

      I purposely didn’t post a character background on thomas because of the reveal. Now that it’s out i may in fact do so with a spoiler warning, but i will wait a bit more. Also, the Constance background is wrong. I need to take it down and do a rewrite. The background i wrote (before making the 2nd Act) changed as i wrote the act. Your comment has reminded me to take it down. I’ll post a new one in a day or so, and… let me decide what to do about Thomas’s background.

        This was posted over a year ago and no link to Constance’s story. Is the one I found from another link correct?

    I’d actually like a character bio on Lloyd. I’m struggling to understand what exactly his role is beyond as a narrator. It seems him and Jackie have some influence on the story and interfere with it in a way but it’s a bit lost on me. I assume he is the second man in the substation when John enters?

      Lloyd’s role is purposely left ambiguous. In a nutshell, he is operating on slightly different, let’s say hyper reality level then the normal world. This is not so different then the Narrator in the Steampunk Opera. However, as where the steampunk Opera Narrator is benevolent, Lloyd is not so much. Lloyd doesn’t offer advice for the good of the characters, but would sacrifice any of them if he thought it would make a better story.

      Jackie is a normal person, with the same influence on events anyone else has. However, at some point in her past she achieved some kind of…. ability to see the world for what it is and even some sight beyond. She is thus aware of Lloyd.

      There is a theory that Lloyd lives in Elysium and the broadcast is a way in which he is trying to get back at New Albion for the Doll fiasco of the Steampunk Opera, attempting to influence events from the infra/hyper space that is Elysium. We’ll discuss this a bit more in the Atompunk Opera.

    Any chance we’ll ever get backgrounds for the other people in the Atompunk Opera (Rachel, Connor, Lee)

    I would really love more background content of the Atompunk Opera’s characters too! I’ve been studying the lyrics and would love to get some theories I have proven right or wrong 🙂

    Can we have a character bio on “The Demon” from Fallen? With the release of URSHFC we get absolute proof that the stories are connected. Also, It would be interesting to go as far back as Cuthulu Musical and have a Bio on the “Gypsy Lady”, “The Boy”, and “The Witch”, as there’s a hidden little detail that tells that this takes place prior to DONA.

    I have to ask. Because its been bugging me. Would you say Jasper Hates Annabelle and Edgar? Or any of the mcalistars for that matter (excluding Priscilla and Fay of course)

     
    • paulms

      I don’t think Jasper hated Annabel in Act 1. She annoyed him and he thought she was a nut, but she also did the right thing in the end. After being brought back the 2nd time and spending years sitting there he did grow to resent the very idea of her. Edgar he hated from the start. Pure hate.

        Was she ever forgiven? Did they ever see eachother in the afterlife or did she get reincarnated ?

      We know her previous incarnation was Alexander from Room Beneath. There’s a theory that she became John from NARH.

    If reincarnation does’t go linearly, is it possible that 7285/Thomas/Lee were reincarnated into Jasper after the AO?

     
    • paulms

      June 5, 2018 at 9:11 pm

      Reincarnation goes linearly 99 percent of the time. There’s an occasional hiccup. But not with Jasper. He was not anyone else we’ve met yet.

        June 5, 2018 at 9:23 pm

        Ah, okay, thanks.

        Also, I have one more question, if you don’t mind. If Constance was a post-human, does that mean Priscilla and Rachael were, as well, since they have the same soul?

         
  12. paulms

    June 5, 2018 at 9:30 pm

    No! They were not. But like everyone else, they have the capacity to be. Rachael moreso, but she hadn’t reached it yet. It’s like language, one has the capacity for it, and in reincarnation has that capacity every life, but still must acquire it/ learn it in order to have it.

     
    • paulms

      June 5, 2018 at 9:37 pm

      I would add, this situation is rather.. unique. Rachael’s odds of regaining post humaness were immensely favorable and would be when such situations exist

       
      • Lily Chandler

        June 5, 2018 at 10:56 pm

        You referred to Elysium as being in Inner Space, is there any chance we’ll see Rachael return as a post-human in the space opera? (The reveal about Constance in See Our Show was awesome)

         
  13. paulms

    June 6, 2018 at 8:51 am

    Extremely doubtful. The story of Rachael and that entire soul is done. The Space Opera is on hold, as i didn’t like the plot, but I don’t expect to ever return to Rachael.

      As much as I’ll miss the character, I know that if you brought her back you’d probably destroy her even more. So in the end, it’s probably for the better that things stay the way they are for her. She was awesome, though.

    when reincarnation occurs. Does the previous version of the soul get completely erased? or is it filled away like in a computer. While the new version is the one in control. Could there ever be possibilities of remembering old lives?

     
    • paulms

      June 7, 2018 at 8:17 pm

      After death one remembers past lives. Certainly when one hits Elysium. The previous version of the soul… does your childhood get erased when you become a teenager? Is the teen erased by the adult? It’s just the single soul going through different evolutions, just not remembering the past.

    Did Byron go to Elysium or did he too get reincarnated (Sorry I’m asking so many questions)

     
    • paulms

      June 8, 2018 at 7:45 am

      There’s no way Byron would have gone to Elysium. He was reincarnated and is out there somewhere in the wheel.
