'So Shiny, So Chrome' takes place 13 years after The Fall, a combination of the Oil Wars that came to a climax with a nuclear event. Our setting is the Wasteland, once the Australian outback. Wildlife mutated by radiation prowls the wasteland; weather is harsh and highly unpredictable; roving gangs of survivors fight for what remains of precious resources.
What a day, what a lovely day.
----- Season: Winter Weather: Days 8°C/Nights -10°C
Winter has descended once again on the Wasteland as merciless as ever. Days are cold, and with little cover the high winds are all the more biting; even without snow, hypothermia and frostbite are a constant threat. The only relief is that many of the Wasteland's creatures are in hibernation.
TILLY FC: Gaia Weiss Age: 20s Affiliation: Vulvalini of many mothers
The Amazonian daughter of a cattle rancher, Tilly is an Aussie girl through and through. She was one of Mother Jay’s first adopted girls, and her low key favorite until Yellow rolled in about a year later. She’s in many ways the polar opposite of her sister, relishing in the violence of the new world. Aggressive, fearless, confident, the epitome of badassery, she lives by a philosophy of “Fuck it. And Fuck you.”
She was working as Yellow’s spotter the day their bait took a knife to the cheek. She’s haunted by the shared responsibility in the once beautiful girl's mutilation and is exceedingly hard on Yellow as a result. There is a sisterly love shared between she and Yellow, strained and buried as it may be. She's not malicious so much as convinced that Yellow's fuck ups are going to eventually bring ruin to herself and the Mothers.
Since Tilly is from a cattle ranch, perhaps she knows my boy Sam 'Enfield' MacLaren and his family? He and his family lived on a cattle ranch way the fuck out in the boonies, far enough that they only got run off about a year ago. Entirely possible her ranch-hand mom/dad were one of the ones that left earlier in the Fall for whatever reason.
