Ala is a supporting female alien character in my original Sci-Fi Romance story: Everything Under the Stars

:bulletblue: Story Hub: All Written Chapters

:bulletblue: EUTS Art Gallery and Story Info


So... shit... the scanner totally killed this drawing. Believe it or not, I colored her skin a very very pale whitish blue that refused to pick up on either one of my scanners. It still turned out good I think despite this annoying issue...

I am... extremely impressed with how this came out. From the pose.. to the lighting. I actually have some trouble drawing her face sometimes but it all worked out perfectly and she was my quickest one to get done even though I only started her sketch like.. two days ago. D:

This is pure eye candy! XD


Ala
: ( Pronounced: Ah Lah (Like Nala from the Lion King but without the N )
Species Population on Station: Only one.
Age: 27 in Human years
Occupation: Bartender, waitress, overall club caretaker
Family: Muora (mate) Blood family on her homeworld.
Current address: Second Disc, Entertainment District, with Muora in his personal clubs.
Hobbies: Collecting rare and unique trinkets from other species, Music, dancing
Theme Song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvE7w3…

Bio:
    Ala is a free spirited, fun, and down to 'earth' person.
    She has the ability to sense other people's emotions and can read their aura which gives her an understanding of their personality and feelings. This makes her remarkably good at seeing people for who they really are and allows her to be more weary of people who are up to no good, or who are actually very sweet and friendly on the inside, despite their piggish behaviors (Veeno).
    She also enjoys listening to people's stories and problems which makes her a great bartender and person to go to for advice. She's a little sassy and knows how to take care of herself as long as it doesn't get physical, since she is a delicate and frail species, built more for visual attractiveness than physical strength.
      She is a slave who belongs to Muora, but like Heather, she is not treated as a slave or considered to be one by him, only through contract... which unfortunately, cannot be broken. Instead, she is Muora's mate and lover and shows her affection towards him whenever she is around him. She loves him just as much as he loves her.


    Random Facts:
    :bulletblue: Veeno has an attraction to her, like all pretty females at the clubs, and has tried a considerable amount of times to woo her with no success, unaware that all that time she belonged to Muora. Ala simply considers Veeno a silly friend and has no attraction to him whatsoever.
    :bulletblue: It is extremely rare to see one of Ala's species outside their space and homeworld. In fact, it is considered treason for her species to leave their homeworld.
    :bulletblue: Ala's species are aquatic in nature and being off the homeworld, her skin can get overly dry and crack. Muora imports expensive special hydrating lotions he personally applies to her skin every evening before bed.
    :bulletblue: Along with Veeno, Ala acts as a friend and guardian angel for Heather, always keeping a watchful eye on her.
    :bulletblue: Her skin reflects light as a rainbow of colors that is similar to an Opal.
    :bulletblue: Her rarity and beauty are a prime target for all kinds of scum but no one messes with Ala in fear of Muora's wrath. Those that don't know of Muora will shortly find out upon messing with her.
    :bulletblue: I created Ala for H-Falcon and give him majority say in how she is portrayed in the story.


    Notes
    : If there is anything I forgot to mention or something you would like to know, just let me know and I'll see about adding it unless it is plot relevant for future chapters. Species names are still being decided so... uh.. yeah.. OTL

    That's awesome to hear; I don't usually get many comments wanting more of Ala and Muora.

    Yeah.. I know it's been very long. I can't say for sure when I'll be picking things up again with EUTS, but I can say that if you've been following the opener comic teaser for Chapter 21, the next page set I've got on the back burner features Muora, with Ala making a cameo in it. :)

    Thank you very much. With my alien characters, I prefer to stay away from things like breasts to show they're female, for example, since it's mostly a human thing. c:

    Yes I agree completely. Most people tend to go that route of adding breasts and the like, and it's refreshing to see characters like yours. :)

    Heather is constantly surrounded by guys, and they all try to understand her.. But uhm... She needs Ala! A female to understand a female.. :love:

    Ha, thank you. I'm glad you think so because I sometimes feel I could have made them more alien in design. I know Veeno and Gale don't look particularly alien but I like them too much how they are to start messing with their design like, taking the cheap alien design road and giving them four eyes or an extra set of limbs, lol.

    And I agree. Heather does need some female friends or at least someone to talk to. I find it hard myself since I tend to be more like Tes and get along better with the guys than with girls. D:

    Well my camera recently broke so that as been a huge pain in the ass, but I also have bad lighting in the house so that is another complication, on top of keeping my hand still so it doesn't blur or if I am slanted so the image ends up skewed. D:

    I do admit the photos I've taken with a digital camera have been the closest to real life but now with it being broken, it's not an option for me atm. :c

    But thank you both for your suggestion and comment. I'm glad you like her! n_n

    Magnificent as alway . Her beauty is describable to equal her caring spirit .

    "Beauty isn't everything but it is advantaged. But person that is beautiful on the outsides but something their inner self contain unpleasing to behold."

    To sweet . There is more to behold and can't to see it .

    I keep coming back to this every time im on dA because she is just so stunning. I love the opal-esque colours of her skin, it looks so smooth and fragile, and yet this image shows how she carries herself with a firm sense of strength and stability. She really is beautiful. I also love her face, especially her mouth :3
    For me at least, she stands out as one of the most alien characters in your series, while also being one of the most attractive. This feature of Ala seems very relevant to Heather's present troubles, about the idea of inter-alien relationships... Ah! Sorry, English study making me running my mouth off in overanalysis. X3 Wonderful picture, and again great to hear more about each character in these bios C:

    But does that mean it's common for a slave to be treated like a free person and lover by their owner?
    Cause that's the part that really sticks out to me.

    It depends on each individual/slave owner.

    Obviously plenty of people will just buy slaves for work purposes and have no interest in the slave as a person and treat them like shit all the time.

    In Neelix's case, he didn't even want to own a slave, it was just the only way he could save Heather.

    For Muora and Ala, well yes, as Falcon said, there are similarities between their situation and Heather and Neelix's, but it's not identical (details on Ala's situation will be revealed later on). But them having the similarities allows Heather to relate and have someone to talk to. c:

    Why couldn't neelix just buy her freedom then? I've been wondering this for a while. is there no way that slaves can be freed?
    Reply
    :iconlady-owl:
    Lady-Owl Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011   Digital Artist
    Well, there can always be loop holes in the system. Falcon came up with something I may or may not use depending on the direction I wanna go with the story, though I am trying to take a different approach to things like that since I don't always think things should be so black and white.

    Like it seems too perfect to me to have Neelix be able to free Heather. Just like it seems too perfect if Heather could ever go home. Sometimes you are dealt a bad hand and you gotta deal with it and make the best of it, which is what I really wanna go for.

    But how I have things so far is that sometimes slavery is the only way to protect someone. Maybe the person willingly goes into slavery for protection. Sometimes, such as in Heather's case, because her people are not apart of the Concord, she has no rights and is not seen as a citizen so she needs to belong to someone who is a citizen, by law.

    It's not exactly easy to free a slave when the very reason they are one is due to complicated situations.
