I play Vella, one of the main characters in the game YIIK, developed by Ackk Studios and published by Ysbryd Games.
YIIK is a 3D turn-based RPG (role-playing game) that takes inspiration from the popular Mother game series and author Haruki Murakami's works. I play Vella Wilde, a musical prodigy and "master keytar player, whose knowledge of music and aural combat arts borders on metaphysical."
Vella is one of my favorite characters that I've played for a number of reasons. For one, I loved getting to sink my teeth into such a layered, complex character. There are many dimensions to her; that much was evident just from the audition script. But particularly interesting is just how much we have in common. Vella indicates in the game that she is an avid DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) player, as am I. But in addition to that, Vella is half-Korean (I'm conversationally proficient in Korean) and possesses absolute pitch, an auditory phenomenon estimated to occur in 1 in 10,000 people--as do I.
