Here’s a render of Polly “Pix” Talbish and her pet alien “Jester”. Polly will appear in the first episode of Dark Rift as Commander Samuel Talbish’s daughter. I spoke briefly about Talbish in my introduction to the Dark Rift series post, but in case you missed it, he is Kole’s old war buddy/commanding officer back when they both served in the United Planetary Alliance (U.P.A.). Now, Talbish is a contraband dealer, and his daughter works with him. Without going into the exposition that will be revealed in the first episode, I’ll just say that she is devoted to her father’s protection and vice versa. Polly got the nickname “Pixie” from her mother when she was a very young girl due to an impish nature and tendency to stir up mischief. Over the years, her parents just shortened it to “Pix”. She is a talented mechanic (in case it’s not obvious from the outfit and engine grease) and a fierce young woman. You’ll get to witness her fiery attitude in action in the first episode of Dark Rift as well as learn her backstory (and Jester’s, too).
Stay tuned for introductions to Commander Samuel Talbish and Fyra Leighton (finished and reworked), coming soon.
