I think I'm interested in that. I won't be able to have a character ready for a few days, hopefully that's not a problem.
So, my preference would be to play a Drake. Will that work for you, or should I come up with something else?
To be clear, at this stage are you looking for someone to take over Wallace for a bit and transition into a new character? Or just entre a new character immediately?
I'd really like someone to take over Wallace for a bit, since he's already injected into the plotline.
If you were to take over Wallace, you could start playing immediately, and then transition over to whatever new character you dream up when one of the following happens:
a) Jigger (the original player) returns from falling off the earth
b) Wallace dies a horrific (and one hopes humorous) death and there's a good opportunity to inject a new PC
c) We reach the end of an arc that it makes sense for Wallace to depart and a new PC to join.
