Look at your boy! Look at him! Can you believe I created Brice 10 years ago? No? Well I can’t either. How time freakin flies. But I checked and yes it turns out I created Brice way back in 2009 (when I couldn’t draw jaws lines or figure out how to color lines) and he is by far my most popular fan character. For what reason I have no idea but people love Brice. There’s been fanart of him – that never happens to my characters – I was so floored when people loved his story and not just for him but for I portrayed an older Jim Hawkins. Before I revamped Bind it (Atlas) was my longest fanfic – spanning about 28 chapters! I was so pleased with it I have no plans to ever rewrite it LOL Plus I feel like I’d ruin it if I tried (kind of like how I’ve stalled on Roommates/Accomplice)
So a little about my man here just incase y’all don’t know – Brice is my fan creation for Treasure Planet. He is a pirate, the son a pirate in a long line of pirates to Captain the star ship ‘Atlas’. His crew consists of other decendents from the original crew of the Atlas – all sworn into a brotherly pact to keep the tradition alive. His first mate is a very large Felinoid named Wren who is extremely protective of Brice since he is older and helped raise Brice. He affectionately refers to Brice as his ‘cub’. I do believe I made him at least five years older than Jim – so when they first meet Brice is pushing thirty. And the story spans their life together until their adventures end in their 60’s so it covers a lot.
Much like my other Treasure Planet oc Andria – I based Brice’s look and color palette on an existing Disney character. Not sure if I mentioned it back then but I gave him the same colors as Scar from the Lion King. Fun fact – Brice was almost a red head because of Scar’s rust color body but I ended up making him blond and gave him somewhere fluffy hair to make him look less dangerous than he actually is. And he is in fact dangerous. In the first few chapters of his story he kills several mutineers, nearly kills Amelia and her entire crew, gets stabbed several times and somehow convinced a very dedicated Star Fleet Captain that he should leave his old life behind and join him – so yeah, he’s real good at being bad. So his clothes became black and rust colored – he got Scar’s green eyes and of course his own battle scar to show he’s been through a lot in his life as a pirate. Brice is the closest I’ll ever come to making a Disney prince – LOL can you imagine a Disney prince with a tongue piercing, that smokes weed and has a boyfriend. Well I did imagine him and he’s great!
