#11 Sphynx

| November 30, 2012 | 0 Comments

In the teeming metropolis of New Hudson, one hears about the courier known as Sphynx.  She’s a knockout when it comes to looks, athletic, and can get any info to a client on time, no matter what.  Plus, she’s skilled in martial arts and if all else fails, she’s got a modified pistol that can fire a “shockburst” that can disable any opponent (she does not kill, and as far as anyone knows, Sphynx has never taken a life).

Detective Gary Del’Arco knows about Sphynx, and he knows her real name, her shoe size, and even what her favorite type of pizza is.  That’s because Gary is involved in a passionate relationship with Sphynx, whose real name is Laura Margolis.  Because of an incident in her past, Laura took up the role of a free-running courier, and courier and detective met because of a major case that ended with Gary solving it and discovering the identity of the killer of one of Laura’s friends.  That last revelation ended up with Gary saving her life and facing the ugly truth about corruption in the New Hudson Police Department.

Gary and Laura are in love and do care about each other, and they also exchange secrets (while keeping their own relationship secret).  Both of them worry about how long it will last, but for now, they are certainly the most unusual–and most unlikely–couple living in New Hudson.

About the Author ()

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.
