Character Idea: <<The Pitch:>>
Trust Me! I'm a Science... Teacher...
Soooooo maybe your character doesn't have their "PhD." So what? They're just as passionate about SCIENCE!
as the next guy! After all, they've been teaching it for years! Your character is a public school science teacher who just couldn't resist the call to space.
They love astronomy, Star Trek, flashy chemistry experiments! They know their way around an ESS
texbook and have been grading volcanoes, solar systems, and cell diagrams for years! So maybe they're a teensy bit
"out of their league" in R&D... They can still inspire
like nobody's business! And, hey! Nobody
even comes close to rivaling their collection of motivational posters and XKCD printouts! It'll be fine! After all, isn't love
all that matters? Let's touch some lives!✽✽✽BONUS IDEAS:
(If Assigned to R&D) Your character has trouble keeping up with some of their colleagues but, hey, their lab decorations
are on point and they're the best person around for pep talks! Why couldn't everybody
have had such an inspiring figure when they were kids? // (If Assigned to R&D) So what if their version of "research & development" is cool revamps of classic old science experiments! Who cares? It's so fun to watch
. And in a sector full of nerds? I bet they're very
popular!// (If Assigned Outside of R&D) Your character wants to be where the science is! They love that stuff! Have them sneak in to watch experiments! // Pair with Channel 9
to start a fun, educational science series! // Supplement your character's existing education with guild classes! Teach classes of your own! // Your character hates
cell phones and chewing gum! Old habits die hard!
