Are you going to read an Enemy chapter for Twig? Here are voice samples from the characters we’ve met so far. I care an awful lot about consistency, so I expect new readers’ character expression to match the ones that have already been released.
Characters are listed approximately in order of appearance.
Sylvester, our “hero.” Nasal enough to be a little annoying, but not in a way that makes listeners want to turn off the podcast. Sounds like an adult speaking with a child’s voice. Cocky.
No sample. Just listen to any non-interlude episode.
Jamie, his best friend. Shy and gentle, and a little effeminate. Tries to keep from getting into fights and to keep the others from fighting.
Helen, a femme fatale in training. A chirpy voice with an audible smile. Sounds like she will grow up to be Marylin Monroe, but in the meantime she’s just tickled pink to dissassemble your ribcage.
Lillian, a good doctor. A young girl with a high-pitched voice. I imagine she sounds like a ten-year-old Kristen Chenoweth.
Gordon, the golden boy. A masculine voice, but still a child. Sounds the most like an adult even though he isn’t one. Would grow up to be Chris Evans.
Mary, a girl who likes knives. A low-voiced female child. Unsure of herself unless she’s exercising her true talent, which is fighting.
Ashton, a little boy who doesn’t understand people very well but can manipulate their emotions.
Duncan, a young man trying to become a professor.
Mrs. Earles, the landlady of the orphanage
Professor Hayle, the Lambs’ patron and creator of Sy, Jamie, and Gordon
Lacey, one of Hayle’s assistants
Ibbot, Helen’s creator
Catcher, half of the Academy’s best tracking team
Dog, the other half of the Academy’s best tracking team
Percy, a rebel and Mary’s original creator
Cynthia, a rebel
Rick, an orphan boy who annoys Sy
Reverend Mauer, a former soldier and rebel preacher
Gladys Shipman, an attractive Academy student
Genevieve Fray, an ex-professor candidate planning to save humanity
Wendy, a stitched girl who travels with Fray
Melancholy, one of four members of the “Humors,” an Academy-made superweapon team
Avis Pardoe, a member of the rebellion with an affinity for birds
The Duke, a powerful noble
The Infante, an even more powerful noble
