    BACKGROUND
    ______________
    Vanessa is in her mid-twenties which makes her quite the old woman on Necromunda.

    She has run her gang as leader for nearly ten years, expecting and receiving complete loyalty.

    She defeated the previous gang leader in a challenge duel after a series of failed raids into Goliath turf. Like all Escher she has nothing but contempt for Goliaths to this day.

    As the new leader Vanessa turned the gang’s fortunes around in short order, gaining a reputation for independence and endurance while out on the fringes of House Escher turf.

    NOTE

    The Voice Actress will also be needed to voice a Goliath female (one shout and one short line of dialogue).

    GUILDER DENIS – MALE – 35-40 YRS OLD – WITH A GREAT BRITAIN ACCENT
    Personality traits: Confident, sarcastic
    Voice Signature: Better spoken, confident and authoritative.
    British middle class.
    Accent: Great Britain
    Age: 35 – 40

    AUDITION LINES
    The hive cities of Necromunda. Untold billions crammed within mountains of metal, vast insect mounds of tireless industry amid the toxic
    wastes of their own manufacture.

    Inside the hive cities every breath of air, every drop of water is recycled a million times over. Every watt of power and each mouthful of food must be guarded against rival clans and outlaws.

    And yet…opportunity still exists, for the gang bold enough to take it. In the foundation layers of the Underhive all manner of treasures can be still found; lost, forgotten… or abandoned in the dark.

    The only question is: Who will get there first?

    BACKGROUND

    The Guilder knows he’s unreachable as per his status. No one could attempt on his life without risking to be tracked and killed in the following days.

    This rank in the Hive explains his confidence, and sarcasm tone.
