Intrepid Sixamese news anchor Vofura arrived in Barnacle Bay quite by accident when her spaceship was blown off course and crash-landed. She was found by local journalist Thomas, who offered her his spare room while she repaired her ship. Over the course of many late night discussions about literature and history, the pair fell in love, and now, years later, are married with three children.
During her time with Thomas, Vofura has also developed a deep affection for the town itself. She enjoys earth food immensely, and likes that the temperate seaside climate allows her to go jogging outdoors almost every day. When she’s feeling mischievous, she amuses herself by streaking through the city center and shocking the locals with her alien body.
Thomas is a friendly, intelligent man who likes to keep his house tidy and his mind sharp. After a successful journalism career, he is ready to draw his pension and focus on finishing his latest novel.
The eldest of Vofura and Thomas’ children are twin brother and sister Aena and Doexeli. Aena has inherited her mother’s fair hair and alien abilities, but her father’s human skin tone. Although she is quite shy around strangers, she loves spending time with her family and her best friend Griselda. She is very good with computers, and wants to train to become a forensic scientist when she leaves school.
Green-skinned Doexeli is a budding musician. In addition to practicing his Laser Rhythm-a-con and guitar, he enjoys cooking delicious meals and relaxing in the sunshine. When he grows up, he wants to join the culinary career.
As a neurotic, excitable, genius, the twins’ little brother Laeth is a quite a handful, but just look at his cute little face!
The family lives at 1705 New Barnacle Blvd. in this sprawling saltbox. Like many of the homes in the bay, it has seen many different occupants and undergone several renovations and additions over the centuries.
Front patio with fire pit. The view will eventually be mostly obscured by other houses, so I’m enjoying it while it lasts.
Thomas and Vofora’s bedroom and bathroom.
Aena’s bedroom. Like their mother, the twins don’t need to sleep, but I like them to still have beds for the ten hour +30 ‘well rested’ moodlet.
