Interestingly the question of political correctness and diversity etc… had nothing to do with why a fanfic audio play has an Aboriginal hero. We just needed a new G rated exclamation for the character. Terry had taken “flip!” with him, awesome was getting tired, nobody but me liked ‘crikey!’ In the process it did expose some mental biases – picturing him in our heads he was originally SE Asian – a sort of nerdy type,’dark haired, dressed in hipster bogan style’ as per his creator Adam Brooks’ side.
Then when Bruce suggested ‘deadly’ at a brainstorming sesh I realised an aboriginal looking hero had never crossed my mind and then worse – as I stumbled around trying to make an ‘aboriginal looking’ avatar I found out why that’s so hard – it has nothing to do with skin colour and everything to do with culture – its internalised. I would never have dared except that Bruce Tiffin was there to guide (his Tasmanian family is a very blond aboriginal one) – so we went through a few iterations until we got this little cutie loosely based on a grown up Brandon Walters.
