Muscular Conman Full of Bravado Character for Game 
ZD2837050
We are currently scouting for potential voice actors for our upcoming game Mages Initiation: Reign of the Elements. You can find out more about it at the following link: http://www.himalayastudios.com/games/mages/

An image of the character to-be-cast is attached to this posting.

BASIC PLOT CONCEPT
--------------------------------

The story is set in a distant future, after the Elements struck back at humanity, purging much of humankind from the surface of the planet as a form of 'hard reset'. Of the surviving humans, two groups emerged. The first group consists of regular humans with no special abilities. The second group were 'Mages' - magical, spell-casting individuals who had been infused with the essence of the four Elements, and appointed by them as the guardians of humanity... to ensure that humans remain on the right track, in order to prevent another apocalyptic scenario from taking place.

As such, the Mages are somewhat elitist in their attitudes, believing themselves to be "above" regular humans and not getting involved in their petty, lesser affairs and political squabbling. The story follows a 16-year-old boy named Darc, who is studying to be a Mage in a little-known town of Iginor. He must undergo three trials that have been set by his Masters in order to prove himself worthy and be ordained a fully-fledged Mage.

At certain points in the game, D'arc ventures into the town's dark and seedy tavern - a hive of villainy and scum. There, he will encounter a gambling duo of petty thieves/confidence tricksters, known as Fend and Pug. Fend is the taller, muscular, and (slightly) more intelligent of the two. While Pug, is his short, dim-witted lackey and a side-kick. Fend often talks down to Pug, and the two have a comedic repertoire to them, similar to Gaston and LeFou from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" cartoon. Fend and Pug haven't known each other for all that long, but their polar differences seem to compliment each other.


FEND CHARACTER DETAILS
------------------------------------

Fend is around 35-years-old. While he is not overly intelligent, he does have an abundance of street smarts, and in comparison to his half-witted companion, Fend appears to be wiser than is actually the case. He had a rough upbringing. As a teenager, his family succumbed to an outbreak of Violet Fever, a deadly plague, which was not adequately contained by the town’s ruler, Lord Tyron. Tyron used his political ties to move his cronies out of the plagued village, and left the citizens behind to die. Fend blames Lord Tyrone for the death of his family, and has an aversion to authority figures. Fend met Pug when Pug was trying to pickpocket him and decided to take him under his wing. While it's obvious that Fend is taking advantage of his simpler cohort, Pug is just happy to have a new 'friend'. Pug also has the habit of constantly putting his foot in his mouth and contradicting Fend, much to the latter’s chagrin.

Fend is a confidence trickster and gambler, so he should come across as exuding a lot of bravado, but he gets easily frustrated when things don't go his way. He's a bit of a meathead; a mucho bodybuilder type who manages to hide his weaknesses and fears very well behind his forboding physical appearance. A lot of the comedy between Pug and Fend involves him getting Pug to do his dirty work, or Pug getting on Fend's nerves and Fend constantly telling him to "shut up" (which is somewhat his catch-phrase). The Fend character could speak with a slight English accent, though this is not absolutely necessary. As mentioned above, Gaston from the cartoon version of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" is a good reference for Fend's character type.

Voice files would need to be recorded in either MP3 or Ogg Vorbis format in one continuous recording. They do not need to be digitally edited. The files would be delivered by email (or uploaded by FTP, or DropBox). Please try to record with minimal microphone pops and clicks, and use a pop filter. Direction for specific lines and retakes will be provided in text/email form. Any retakes/pick-ups that are required will fall under the single payment for this job.
