Character Dossier: Rockford Richards of Other Systems

This is the last dossier! Over the past few weeks, I posted my original character dossiers for each of the major characters  so if you want to see your favorite character’s dossier, Here  are the links: Abby,  ColeHardenHelenMarkBrianDianePat and Rockford! I admit there is no spoilers.

Okay, I also admit the only REAL part of the dossier is this and it was originally attached to Diane: Species and Physical Description: Rockford (Rocks) is a massive gray and white domestic house cat. Has cat closet with everything a cat desires. Though Diane is primary caregiver, he has seven humans to provide for his needs.

Because that is rather dull, lets see the rest of his life style from a slightly updated from a blog post about character creation last year.

Rockford’s lifestyle: The hoo-mans on the Revelation consider him Diane’s cat in the sense that Diane wanted a cat, purchased a kitten, now feeds, waters, cleans up his litter box.

However, Rockford considers The Revelation his domain and the crew his servants. Fear not, he is benevolent. He gives preference to the Hoo-man called Diane who feeds, waters, and cleans up after him. He also gives preference to any Young Hoo-mans as they tend to play with him. The young one called Abby especially likes to throw his fish and she talks to him when she is afraid. He doesn’t mind, he is a good listener.

During the “day”, he wanders around the living quarters of the Revelation and pushes his scent glands on whoever is not working. While he does consider Diane’s bed a favorite resting spot, he also has his own cat-sized billet (Hoo-mans foolishly refer to it as a closet) with his toys and a scratching/climbing area and his litter box where he can retire until his special skill set is needed.

Employment: (No, they do not have a rodent problem.)

First of all, he is an excellent judge of character.

Secondly, when hoo-mans are having a bad day and don’t want to deal with the hardship and the blackness of space, or just the annoyance of other hoo-man beings, Rockford is willing to cuddle while they watch vids. He also likes to play fetch with his stuffed fish and he likes to bat at pieces of fabric. He knows hoo-mans find it soothing when kitties purr.

Now you might not think purring is an important job, but then you have never dealt with the black emptiness of space or a contained environment where you are stuck with the same people day after day.
