Short Dim Witted Sidekick Character for RPG Game 
ZD2739593
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, known as Fend and Pug. Fend is the taller, muscular, and 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 aspect to them, similar to Gaston and LeFou from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" cartoon. Fend and Pug have not known each other for all that long, but they seem to have a good repertoire.

PUG CHARACTER DETAILS
------------------------------------
Pug is around 35-years-old. He has an extremely low-IQ and is merely a hanger-on to his smarter, more burly companion. He was orphaned as a child and grew up in various dysfunctional homes, never went to school, and learned pock-pocketing and confidence tricks on the street in order to make money. Though he wasn't any good at either. Pug met Fend when Pug was trying to rob him. Fend caught him and took 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's voice should sound slow-witted and stupid. A classic town fool type of guy. Perhaps something similar to a NY mobster without being too overdone. Pug often laughs at his own dumb jokes and doesn't understand the punchlines to Fend's more complex ones - often taking them literally.

Most of Pug's lines require him to be fairly care-free and jovial, although there are times when he loses his temper, and appears worried.

Good references voice would be something like a NY mobster crossed with Droopy Dog. Or alternatively, just the classic deep-voiced "dumb" cartoon voice (like Bebop and Rocksteady from the original 80's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle series).

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.
