10 Token Tomboys

Power Grid

Allow Us To Explain...

Picture 1 of 11

So, you're adapting a story for a new medium and you notice that everybody is pretty... male. Or, perhaps there's the one girl, dressed in a pink skirt, dating the leader guy and getting captured a lot. It occurs to you that the six or seven male characters you have run a range of different personalities, and it wouldn't be fair to only give girls one kind of character to look up to. So you add a tomboy. Or maybe someone asks you to add more female characters for representation's sake. So you add a tomboy. Or maybe there were no girls at all. So you add a tomboy. Here are some characters added for the sake of diversity. (And we're sure glad they were!)
