Hmm hmm hmm! The amazing Malun has arrived! That's "Ma" as in math and "Lun" as in lunch, NOT as in lunar. It's MaLUN not MaLOON, I don't know why I have to keep correcting people about this, it's not difficult.

Kid delinquent turned star athlete, here. Bit of a bad reputation in some places, but them's the breaks when you redirect your focus and the places you were putting it all before were maybe not so great.

Anyway please don't ask me to sit still I start to go nuts after two minutes.

Malun Facts!

Malun, like her father, has no trust whatsoever in large organizations like corporations or the government. She is quite convinced they are all part of various conspiracies to hoard power and keep all the real potential of human advancement to themselves.

She is easily bribed with most varieties of fruit punch. Hawaiian Punch's classic Fruit Juicy Red is her particular favorite.

While she often listens to music while working or studying, she honestly pays little attention to what is on and can be caught mumbling lyrics without realizing she's doing it.

Movies, television and other pop culture references often go right over her head. She doesn't watch things because her eyes are usually occupied doing something else. She does enjoy having some shows go on in the background while she works, usually "fun learning" shows like Reading Rainbow, Beakman's World or Bill Nye the Science Guy. Not that she is on that level of learning at all, but she enjoys having at least some common touchstone with other people that she can talk about, and she finds the energy of those shows fun.

The one show she will stop what she's doing and actually watch when it comes on is Wishbone.

The reason she is not homeschooled is because her father does not have the time to do that and work on his own projects AND actually do things to make money, and public school at least gives her social experience with something that is a vague approximation of a "peer group". Malun is very upfront and matter-of-fact about this if asked and considers the question a fair one.

Not me.

But.

I might need another skateboard repair.

It was for a good reason this time.

quote:
Of course, Malun was not as difficult to read as she believed herself to be. She entered this robotic state when she was upset and desperately trying to cover her emotions, and she was still only fourteen. Her more insightful friends had had ample time to see this behavior in her before. The odd thing is that when like this she had a bad habit of talking down to the object of her upsetness, and really only them.


So despite this paragraph, please take into account whether your character is supposed to be a More Insightful Friend or not. Malun is supposed to be rather difficult to comprehend for most people, and, uh, actually rather not for those who are adept at seeing below the surface. I'd...really rather not EVERYONE be able to just read her like a book, you know? Kinda defeats the purpose of her character.

Obviously I am not trying to tell anyone how to play their characters and if you decide that your character is one who can read her, that's fine. (Though, uh, definitely none of the adult NPCs should. Her father is a space case and she doesn't spend enough time around any of the others for them to learn her tells)
