it bugs me, too! i have one but he never gets any action, but a general lack of poc characters (except a small little circle of asian characters, it seems) bugs the shit outta me

that's why mickey is my only fully white character. john is white and somethin else (who knows what), then ez (duh), ford is native american, i have kiran who is turkish, and then donny who is black. it bugs the crap outta me! more poc characters plzzzz

Yay for playing an Asian character!

Well, Mei is Chinese and German.

Let me list some peeps...

Always liked Orion....mostly because it's Yuri and he's one of my favorite models that I follow.
Ezra...cause Daniel is one of my favorite models that I follow.

AnnaMolly..because..wow. And I looked at the CS and say that said character was gay. I did a happy squeal.

And there are a few poc characters: Daly, Jamilla, and Airey. I think Haike's playby was a poc. I can't remember.

I have one but she's mixed.

I would love to make another one because...well, there are a few playbys I have in mind. Lol. I just don't want to put the effort in powering. Lol. Cause I'm lazy.

I think it's more of a comfort level.

Or the fear of getting it "wrong".

Not that I know what it's like to be Chinese, but I researched the hell out of the culture in order for Mei to be believable.

I think the fun part of making a poc is...getting to know the culture. At least for me.

But...>.> yeah.

AdamMcCoy---mostly because it's Chris Pine and I find him to be absolutely dreamy.

This is my thing. Reyna's POC but she's from a completely dead culture so I felt safer. I'm nervous with Kang so I constantly have 28937493 wikipedia pages open for him tbh.

Sapph is POC and I try to do a shit load of research with it all the time. I always feel like I am learning new ways to do it better.

I think the problem arises with POC characters is when writers forget that the designated race/culture/religion of their POC character are actual people stuff. There are actual people belong who follow those religions and are of those cultures and of those races; POC aren't a fad or gimmick. I know that sounds sad and I might get a lot of flack for this but a lot of the times, I've seen a lot of exaggeration of cultures and religions in writing (not just on RB, mind you) where that focus has fallen into a single aspect or, yikes, stereotype of said religion/culture, or there's clear lack of research that leads to the writer confusing different cultures or someone will pick a model that's not even the race the character's supposed to be. Guys, come on. When I see my own culture, race and/or religion, I get excited but when portrayed like that, all I can think is that the writer was just using it like a novelty toy and that feeling sucks. I'm pretty sure though that most people aren't trying to make anyone feel that way so I think the best thing to do here is what Dee, Andy and Liz do, research!

After all, if you're writing a POC, you're writing them because you're interested in that group, right? So research shouldn't be a problem!

Also speaking from firsthand experience, researching for writing is a lot of fun. :|

But to get back on topic, Adrian, Descended (any Acid character really), Tifereth, -chris- and xXChameleonXx will forever own my heart. :dance:
