Alan Reference Sheet by Ruaniamh Alan Reference Sheet by Ruaniamh
It's about time I got around to doing a proper reference sheet for Alan. (I still cannot draw hats T^T)

Anyways, a little bit about her..

Name : Annette Alan (prefers Alan)

Gender : Female

Notible traits :
Speaks with a thick Cockney accent.
Tomboy-ish.
Deep love of myths and history.
Swears and drinks.. A lot...
Is a thief. (steals to survive, and for the love of gold)

Special talent : Freerunning/parkour. (Also, as she says, getting into trouble)

Alan is somewhat of a vagrant. Abandoned at a very young age, she learned almost everything she knows from living in the streets of Trottingham. The streets here were dangerous for such a young filly, filled with thieves and brutes. Lacking the physical strength to defend herself from most ne'er-do-wells, she learned to out-wit and out-run them.
She has a rather cocky and reckless yet oddly charming personality, her philophosy on life being "live each moment as if it's your last, because it just may be.". Though she may be brash, she is rather level-headed and can remain calm even in the most dangerous of situations.

That's about it, for now anyways. I'm god awful at writing and trying to come up with character descriptions T^T

Stalin: if i win Annette Alan has to get a hooficure and if she win i can't get a mani-pedi for a week. (Stalin may me physically weak but he can consume lots of high priced vodka).

-Cockney accent-
Sold me on just that and the nice colours you have going.
Cockney is just so much more fun to listen to than standard British English ('ㅂ')

I am not being offensive am I? If I am, I'm sorry! That's not what the last sentence was meant to sound! I meant Even an OC! Not the other thing!

You're very welcome! X3 Why wouldn't I like her? She is a new concept and I find little thieves awesome!
The irony is that the start of my fan fiction revolves around my character who lives in Trottingham! It's not often I find a character who is from Trottingham other than Pip Squeak! So it was nice seeking a character from there too, even if she is an OC!

Aw, you're too kind :3 I assumed people thought she was boring since she's not "pretty" X3 However, I like her far too much and refuse to change her. She's mah babeh! X3 Not so much a huge new concept though, quite inspired by Young Drake from Uncharted 3.

Hehe, Trottingham is best city! :3

PristineLavender Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I couldn't agree more! Don't change her! There is no reason to! If you like her then that's it! End of story!
I didn't realize that! Well, I wasn't aware of that, but thanks for telling me.

Agreed! Though our visions of Trottingham maybe different, it is still best city!

*nod* more than likely. Perhaps since it was only just mentioned in the show, everyone has their own idea of it :3 Mind you, my version strays quite a bit away from the canon X3 I really do hope they visit Trottingham, or other cities not mentioned in the first two seasons, in the third :D

I hope so too! I need to see what that place looks like.
Judging my you depiction of Trottingham, I get the feeling it is more like London. Gloomy and full of thieves and danger.

I did a combination of London and a puritan village. Full of superstition, betrayal, and accusations. Almost no pony is friendly towards one another there. More snooty and into themselves. It is a big city that is bustling, but the only green (plant life) you see is just outside Trottingham in a forest.The plant life in Trottingham (in my depiction) are all dead.
There is a reason Pipsqueak moved to ponyville! XD

You're spot on there :3 It's not all gloomy mind you. There are areas that are higher class as well.

I really like your idea for it! It's very interesting :3

I think you did a good job writing her backstory, she sounds really brave and cool. Unlike an OC I have. [link]

Hee, thanks :3 Although she's more reckless than brave. As Alan often says to Tobin, "There is a huge difference between being brave and being stupid."
