Project Main Details

Rover gaius 
Gaius James Rover. The Lead character in an upcoming comedic pirate adventure game for PC/Mac.

Character has grown up in London in the early 1700's and has spent a short time on a sugar plantation in Jamaica.

Growing up around actors, Gaius, who prefers to be called James, carries himself with theatrical poise and grace, and contains an almost unconscious ability to make other people laugh, with an at times absent minded clumsiness, like Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther, something he inherited from his father. He has a strong optimistic outlook and naïveté that comes with youth, and a relatively sheltered upbringing. Among his talents is the ability to juggle, and mimic the movements of others.

The character may sound like a cross between Frodo (Elijah Wood) in Lord of the Rings and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) in Pirates of the Caribbean.

Typical lines:
Optimistic. From the bow of a small ship:
- "What a glorious day for sailing, eh lads?"

Naively optimistic. Greeting a band of pirates for the first time:
- "Hello chaps, James Rover at your service!"

Angry. Asked his name after pirate capture:
- "James Rover to you you, filthy pirate!"

Excited. Finding a piece of eight
- "Oh ho, what's this? A piece of eight!"

To himself upon picking something up
- "Hey, peppercorns."
- "Now I can make my famous Jamaican Jerk Chicken."

The main character is a voice you'll be hearing a lot, he makes up nearly 2/3 of all the dialog in the game. so importantly, it has to be a voice you want to hear. The character will have responses to situations that he will be delivering with a dry wit.
