Well, what can I say about Clio? Hmm…
Well she was a pretty easy one to nail down the look for. I had a pretty good image of her in my head, and I drew it out pretty easily. I love it when that happens!!
I think part of the reason she came together so quickly, is that she’s just so fish-y! Most of our other heroes are physically anthropomorphic (or, they have a human-like body). But for Clio, I wanted her to look more like a fish… with a fish body! So here she is!
The only real problem we had to solve with Clio, was how she gets around in an environment filled with air. A fish needs water to survive, so she needed to have some kind of container of water surrounding her. Maybe something like what Spongebob wears when he visit’s Sandy’s treedome!
My initial thought was to give her a fish bowl… maybe a fish bowl with rocket control that could fly around wherever she needed to go. But instead I landed on just a glob of floating water. That way she can stick a fin out in any direction to grab a shell book off a shelf, or shake hands with a creature diplomat, or interact in any way with the world of air around her!
I know what you’re thinking… “how does that work!?” well, I don’t exactly have the credentials or scientific knowledge to answer that question. I’ll just have to refer you to Doctor Curly on this one!
