Another of the 20-30 some characters who will be appearing in the Mortasheen roleplaying game, available whenever I finish my big workload of artwork for it (sometime between...three weeks or three months from now. I work unpredictably slow)
Laverne is one of the most powerful figures in the entire continent-sized Mortasheen city as the queen of its most expansive meat processing empire - organic tissues being slightly above air and water in value to the city's inhabitants. A uniquely mutated "Sectilian" (proto-Arthropoid), her work force is a highly trained and formidable arthropoid army, especially flies and maggots, often modified with mechanical exosuits.
Laverne is idolized throughout the city as a sex symbol and has been romantically involved with Funkle, the Holder of Genetics, for several centuries.
