Concept for an older Yenaquai, in her thirties. At some point she gets into a very ugly accident in which she not only suffers severe burns all over her body, but also looses her left arm. Later one she gets a prosthetic one, but the burned skintissue never truly returns to “normal”.
A female character does not need to be conventionally beautiful to be a maincharacter. It has always bothered me that male characters can be heavily disfigured or battleworn but still be considered attractive, but the same courtesy is not extended to female characters. Either she has no or very little physical ‘flaws’ and looks conventionally beautiful and feminine, or she looses both her sexuality/attractiveness and importance in the story as soon as she isn’t ‘hot’ anymore.
But I just don’t want my female character’s worth to be dependent on their looks, that’s all.
