Time for the next in the series of Fight Squad character concept designs, this time featuring everyone's favourite polymath-psychopath, the Tempist! My personal brief for the character was three-fold: A) allow her physical appearance to suit her job as a corporate spy, (i.e, blending in rather than standing out), B) give her an outfit that complemented said career (professional yet understated, and not in any way flashy or 'sexy'), and C) match both of the above to her personality and general demeanor (utterly amoral, but also utterly dedicated to doing her job, and doing it well). Her appearance came relatively easily - I already had a picture of her in my head as being short and petite (if slightly stocky), but still nimble and agile enough to pull off all the athletic feats necessary when she goes full office-ninja on people; with enough of a secretary / generic businesswoman look to allow her to pass unobserved by anyone who might suspect her of ulterior motives. Her costume took a bit of finagling, I must say, but even on this first page of pencil-based flailing, her character and attitude was definitely starting to shine through....
