Hey! Excuse my terrible understanding of drawing people and dogs!
I’d like to plug and introduce a few new characters for a short story that I’m writing. Here they are:
Mallory McAllister (25, they/them pronouns) lives among the underground of Brooklyn. They have written pamphlets regarding New York City’s darkest secrets, some of which have circulated among conspiracy theorists. They treat everything as a mystery, and their attitude towards people is standoffish at best. However, Mallory genuinely wants to help people, unless they’re not worth helping. In their spare time, Mallory likes playing their guitar in the park, making pizza, and exploring “weird Twitter.”
Alyssa Lam (24, she/her pronouns) is Mallory’s friend, partner, and roommate. She helps Mallory on their adventures, and she usually cools them down when their temper gets hot. Alyssa works a day job at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Main Branch, where she is a research assistant. This also makes her the brains behind many of Mallory’s and her operations. When Alyssa’s not working or solving puzzles, she’s at the bar making friends, dog-sitting, or stargazing.
Charlie (2, woof/woof) is a white Polish Lowland Sheepdog. He found Mallory and Alyssa one day in Prospect Park, and hasn’t left their side since. His mustache prompts Mallory to call him “Old Man” despite his age. Charlie is quite good at sniffing out clues and intimidating suspects. He likes beef jerky and reading Metro over AM New York. His favorite football team is FC Barcelona.
Check back for more on these cool characters’ very first adventure! (And again, I’m sorry about the sketch. I took one art class.)
