【角色設定・林芳】
女巫林芳最早期的樣貌設定手稿釋出!最初的芳有著頹廢短髮和童顏兩大特徵,這其中的曲折演變請聽我們娓娓道來吧👇
.
[髮型三階段-短髮]
我們想,既然是末日遊戲,角色需呈現出歷經災難的樣子。於是初期的芳留著一頭碎短髮,彷彿是在忙亂中剪下的。由於當時的年齡設定較輕,她有著沾滿灰塵的童稚臉龐。
.
[髮型三階段-長髮]
令人哭笑不得的事發生了,因芳早期的英文名是直接音譯成Fang(在英語中意味獠牙),搭配中性的外貌,以致於早期測試時多數歐美玩家竟以為她是個小男孩。至此,我們決定讓她留長頭髮。
.
[髮型三階段-馬尾]
問題來了,芳既是女巫也是火箭技師,留長髮修理機械有釀成職災的風險,那麼,乾脆綁起頭髮吧!而此時年齡設定也上調,臉龐脫離稚氣,就成為了今日大家看到的馬尾少女。

<Character Design Profile - Fei Lin>
Our artist digs into early designs of the witch, Fei. And talks about her transformation from a scrappy, childish teen, to the easy going young adult she is now
.
<Phase 1 - Scrappy Child>
The original setting for Rocket of Whispers was much bleaker than it is now, and so we needed Fei (known as Fang at the time) to look tattered, like keeping herself tidy was a luxury, so everything about her was kind of scrappy. She was also younger at the time, which made her look very boyish.
.
<Phase 2 - He's a She>
Asian names often don't sound the way they intend to in English, so a very feminine name like Fang would sound like a pet wolf without the surname to provide context. Additionally, her tomboyish looks really mislead early Western playtesters into thinking she was a boy, so we started with making her hair longer.
.
<Phase 3 - Ponytail>
As a rocket engineer, having long hair can pose a safety hazard. So we tied her hair up, and added a few years to her age to make her look more mature and fitting of her position as a religious figure. Thus we ended up with the Fei you know today!
