Global Tranz
Head Sculpt:
white skin (originally)
Spiritdoll Elegance
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Aeterno Aesthetics (me)
    Body blushing artist(s):

    Modifications artist(s):
    Tattoo artist(s):
    Reason for choice:
    I spent a great deal of time trying to find the appropriate sculpt for this character. Originally I was going for LittleRebel Tenten, but then felt like I wouldn't be able to make his face up plan work with the visible teeth.
    Then I stumbled upon Global Tranz Lensv2 on tumblr, and fell instantly in love. This head had the perfect features, especially the bone structure, nose and lips. As the head had closed eyes, I knew I'd have to mod him - but that didn't matter to me.
    The body was a natural choice, since the head was actually sculpted to fit a Spiritdoll Elegance body.
    Best Points:
    I love his face. I find his profile very charming and love his wide mouth. I'm also pretty happy with how the purple paint job worked out.
    Worst Points:
    He needs some fixing up - my eye mod was not the cleanest, and his purple paint has chipped here and there. I'll eventually get on it...
  • Eyes:
    Captured in Glass, 12mm black and white
    No wig
    Favourite colours:
    Purple, white, black
    Fashion style(s):
    He usually just wears casual, baggy pants... He never wears shoes and only dons a hoodie if he's feeling cold! So yeah, he has no fashion style, I guess.
  • Name story:
    Skipper comes from his ability; he's able to "skip" death among other things. So the name was directly derived from the word "skip".
    Character age:
    1000-2000, give or take
    Character gender:
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    Skipper's story:
    Skipper was ”born” thousands of years ago in a faraway galaxy on a small moon orbiting a planet. Before existing in flesh, Skipper lived as thoughts and wishes, until for some inexplicable reasons all those wishes and thoughts gathered around into one fixed point on that moon – and after a process quite a bit like the Big Bang, Skipper existed in a living form, in the flesh. And as he was born, the universe itself seemed to whisper a name to him: Skipper.
    Skipper was born of thoughts and wishes of immortality, so as he was born, he got the ability to never die. And even more, he has the ability to ”skip” death, as if he would just skip over that step of the dying process. He can also regenerate entire limbs, and shallow wounds disappear in seconds. Skip can also ”transfer” the deaths he has experienced to someone else, if we wishes to. He just needs to touch someone after the death has been skipped, and that other person dies in the same way Skipper was just about to.
    Another thing he can skip, is distances – so in some way, he can teleport. He just takes a step, but instead puts his foot down thousands of miles farther away. It's as easy as breathing to him.

    For the first few hundred years of his newly-found existence, Skipper spent travelling around space and planets, trying to find others like him. His race didn't have a name – and when he would tell people about his birth, he was usually deemed a liar. No one can just appear from nothing.

    These first few hundred years he also spent ”normally”, only using his teleporting ability. He also avoided making friends, because those friendships would end up in death – and not Skipper's.
    But then Skipper arrived to the Milky Way, and this galaxy opened entirely new doors for him. First of all, Skip met the human kind, and in his own odd way, he fell deeply in love with them. Where else would be find creatures that would kill the boredom as delightfully as humans? Skipper was on Earth to stay – at least for a while – to see what these often quite ridiculous beings were up to.

    Staying put also had its downsides. Skipper formed friendships, partly by accident. And when the inevitable death came, he didn't take it quite too well. In the anger, frustration and sadness, he started using his other powers as an outlet. He'd kill himself or put himself in fatal danger… And then he'd transfer those deaths to other people. He formed an I-don't-care attitude. ”I don't care that people are dying, life is all death anyway. I don't care, the people are just killing each other anyway. I'm just joining in on the fun.”
    Hundreds of years passed in this absolutely mental roller-coaster of death. Skipper didn't form relationships or friendships, he just kept himself occupied with new ways to kill himself and others, over and over again. But as his age turned into a thousand years, everything – well, something – changed for him. He felt an ”anomaly”. It drew him like a magnet from Earth into another galaxy. There, from a small asteroid, Skipper found the second of his kind. He found Agatha.

    Agatha was born from the thoughts and dreams of autumn, and had the disruptive powers of it. And she had been born the exact way as Skipper. But unlike Skip upon his materialization, Agatha was strongly against this flesh-covered body she did not ask for. But for Skipper Agatha was a saviour. After a thousand years, Skipper wasn't alone anymore. There was someone to bear the weight of immortality with; because just like Skip, Agatha too was immortal – well, at least until she would suffer a fatal injury.

    Together they settled into Earth, and adjusted. At least Agatha did, slowly. Skipper adapted the best he could, and found something that killed his boredom better than actually killing something; music. But even though music brought new life into his life, there was no guarantee that someday he wouldn't fall back into his old habits…

    Personality: Intelligent, doesn't speak much – although he'd never pass up an opportunity to use sarcasm or black humour. He seems very relaxed and outgoing, but there's something wrong with him inside. He can't handle boredom, he needs to keep something going at all times… Because if he doesn't, he'll resort to a ”hobby” that is as black as his humour, but not at all that funny.

    Likes: Music (especially Daft Punk, Studio Killers and dubstep in general), humans, dogs, adventuring in space… And figuring out new ”fun” ways to kill himself over and over.
    Dislikes: Boredom, and in some bizarre way, violence – even though that is one of his hobbies. But somehow it's all right if the violence is only directed to himself.

    Additional information:
    Skipper's skin is naturally purple and white, and he gets incredibly annoyed if someone makes remarks of it. He's not ashamed of himself, though – he just kindly tells people to go to hell if they happen to say something offensive out loud. Luckily since alien life started appearing on Earth and the human kind adapted to it, it's been easier for Skipper too.
    Skip is also unable to grow any kind of body hair, and his blood is blue.
