Aheke's Thermal Coat


Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Hawkington

Discord Username: Kodiak (Formerly Opossum) 

Character Name: Aheke Han'san

Item Name: (if you are applying for multiple items, it should be made into a list with the description, name and appearance together): Hengsha Thermal Coat

Item Function(s): A standard jacket with two items of storage space. That stops the Unathi "Your scales bristle with the cold" statements. Worn on the suit slot. Doesn't have or really need a zipped sprite.

Item Description: A very heavy, well padded and generally quite large grey overcoat, probably made for an Unathi, made out of a rather stiff, almost leathery type substance. With a brown synthetic fur collar and even more fleecing inside. Interestingly enough there does not seem to be an easy way of closing it. Emblazoned on the back in a large red letters is "K6"

Why is your character bringing this item to work?: Aheke has tried a number of coats that align with his new position as an investigator, from trench coats, suit jackets and even more recently an antiquated bomber jacket. However, all of these jackets have left him still feeling the chill of the ship. To rectify this, he retrieves an old coat from an older position out from personal storage. Furthermore, it's slight bulk from all the padding generally creates the impression of largeness. Which could be effective when your main methods of defence are a mini disruptor and a flash. Or if you just need to intimidate somebody in interrogation. Maybe, if the worst comes to pass, used to warm someone else up if they get trapped in a freezer or the colder yet vacuum of space due to a breach or something else on the Horizon.

How did your character obtain this item?: In his first post with Zavodoski, either by some seriously bad luck or intentionally done by his higher-ups, Aheke was assigned to work in New Gibson, and quickly found the company issued coat while warming, just not warm enough and frankly, a bit too tight. So, with his newly bolstered pay check, he placed a custom order to a local tailor and wore the coat until his eventual transfer to the Aurora. Pulling it out of personal storage for his investigation work with Zavodoski on the Horizon

What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell?: To Aheke, this coat surmises the benefits of corporate work and of course, that means it has sentimental value for him, the ability to provide for himself and others is a feeling for him that was almost as good as serving Dominia in the military. Continuing from this, it represents somewhat of a mental maturing for Aheke as the investigator position asks more than the basic Soldier or "Gun-for-Hire" thinking that is stereotypically assigned to Han'san's, of course, there is the quality difference between this and military surplus clothing, and it would not be a stretch to say this coat may be the nicest thing Aheke has bought entirely for himself, albeit for practical reasons. While the "K6" on the back is a permanent reminder of where he started in the company and arguably the far more "Senior" position he occupies now working on an SCC starship.

Additional Comments: Massive thanks to CNEGecko and Dekser for helping me sprite this thing. Could not have done it without you two.

I imagine, Hengsha is pretty big and as a result security forces from any company would be designated to separate departments, which do separate patrols. Some with higher or lower risk. That must be designated. Hence "K6" being where Aheke started as his first post.
