Flyspur Sketches by chill13 Flyspur Sketches by chill13
A few sketches of Flyspur, the second in command of the trade ship Bessy.  (working on drawing him consistently)

Flyspur is Jssfloon, chill13.deviantart.com/art/Jss… A species with the ability for extensive space travel but for the most part stay near their home planet.  Flyspur is certainly an exception, reaching the edges of known space with the crew of the little cobbled-together spacecraft.  

His childhood was somewhat difficult.  As all third children of the Jssfloon, Flyspur was born sterile.  In a society that is centered around child rearing and the family 'thirds' are considered rather irrelevant.  Most consider educating them an ineffective use of time and energy as they will not have any children to pass the wisdom on to.  Flyspur was fortunate enough to have a mother who paid the extra fee for him to have a complete education.  He loved the learning but considering his position he was often teased and left out leaving him quiet and a little shy.  He probably would have stayed that way if a mysterious alien hadn't showed up in class.  Rover's tuition was being paid for by an old farmer who had found the boy in a crashed escape pod in his field.  Rover has no qualms against talking to or playing with a Third like Flyspur, in fact, it seems that Flyspur was the only one who was happy to talk to him.  The two quickly became inseparable and when Rover decided take off for the stars his sidekick was ready to follow.  

Truthfully, he had wanted to leave Jssfloon for some time.  As a Third it was difficult to get a real job, as employers would much rather give a position to someone who had a family to feed, or at least would have a family to feed in the future.  But that was only part of the reason he left.  Rover needed looking after.  His friend was unpredictable and impulsive and on Jssfloon had ended up in both the hospital and jail more than once.  It wasn't that he was a bad fellow.  But he did before he thought.  And perhaps he needed someone to do some of the thinking for him, at least to keep him out of trouble some of the time.  

As Rover's second in command Flyspur is competent and loyal.  He will follow the captain into pretty much anything but he will speak up if he thinks something is a bad idea. 


(I really need to come up with a title for this series)

I've seen him just today and I like this guy already. He reminds me of Pirate with a Scarf :) 
I like those reasonable guys :D

Yay! So very glad you like him! Just within the past few months have I really been trying to do something with my OCs so it's always really nice to find someone likes them.

His personality and his relationship with his captain were actually inspired by Scarf and the Captain.

Well this is very interesting!! I love seeing new creations people come up with!! It's different and that's gonna take some getting used to (the double eye brows for example) but Flyspur is adorable nonetheless!! I hope to see more of this guy and good luck!!

Thank you  much!  Well, I was really trying for something different.  I wanted him to look human enough to relate to, as he is a main character, and yet I wanted him to look distinctly alien.  

So glad you like!  I am going to have an honest to goodness story with these guys sometime soon.

Um...no offense but "He probably would have stayed that way if a mysterious alien showed up in class." needs to be changed to "He probably would have stayed that way if a mysterious alien hadn't showed up in class." since you're saying that said "mysterious alien" was the catalyst for Flyspur's personality change. Awesome character and name by the way.

Yes....yes.  'hadn't' it seems has abandoned his duties.  He was supposed to be in there.  He will be thoroughly reprimanded, I assure you.
