Hey Sexy girl, I'm Pixie by Amoryl Hey Sexy girl, I'm Pixie by Amoryl
this is Pixie, one of the regiment's elite scouts. she's cute, adorable, redheaded and freckled, and has easily the foulest mouth in the entire Regiment. of the Regiment she pretty much gets along with men from other regiments the best. she likes to drink and gamble and she's a notorious ladiesman...er...woman. in general she has a great deal in common with most other soldiers.

so..the Regiment. I've had this thought pop into my brain to form a Warhammer 40k regiment comprised entirely of lesbians. how is that you ask? simple. their world had a mutation caused by an unnoticed chemical in the soil that results in the population of male to female being just shy of 2 to 1. not enough to force women into the role of brood mare or anything, but enough that there's serious social pressure about women marrying men (sometimes multiple men) and having families. there are of course a faction of the population that will not do this. lesbianism, in this culture is just about the biggest taboo, and is utterly socially unacceptable. so when the Imperium cycles through and demands the mustering of regiments for the cause, there's a culling. this seems to many to be very cruel, and it most certainly is. but in the end it's far preferable to the other alternatives that had previously been tried (and failed) in the vastness of the Imperium there's power and glory to be had even by women, unlike on their homeworld where they'll be forever forced to either live a lie, or be outcasts without power, wealth, influence, or even basic civil rights. the commander of the regiment has worked very hard to make her regiment an extremely effective fighting force, specializing in city fighting and close quarters combat, this success has afforded her a fair amount of power, allowing her to replenish her ranks with new drafted women rather then having them randomly thrown into the all male regiments filled with the very same men who drafted and exiled them for not sleeping with men. in this way, at least, they're spared a bit of their own world's intolerance, and in many cases violence against them.

there will likely be more characters each with her own motivations and quirks.

Extremely interesting background story! I love it when people give their images/characters backgrounds. The planet you described sounds kind of like the kind of planet and social background that one of my story characters came from.

I like the freckles on Pixie; it's rare to see any pictures of women with freckles (people must think they are an imperfection or something). I look forward to more pictures of the women from this regiment :)

I've been working a lot on this idea. keep in mind that the regiment isn't made only of women who are the "classical" example of lesbians, and realize that I don't believe it's a "choice" I firmly believe that some people are simply born drawn to the same sex. it DOES appear in nature, and especially when you deal with the social stigma and often violence from homophobes who hate the concept of what you are, it's pretty hard to say that they simply choose to be a pervert or whatever. and I've known a lot of gay men and you know from a really young age that some of these boys aren't going to be straight.

anyway, we're not just talking the girls who were born gay, we're also talking the ones that "turn gay" do to sexual and/or physical abuse, and women so traumatized by evil men that they cannot stand the idea of being in physical contact with men, even if they have no sexual interest in women.

the regiment's ace sniper is mostly of the later, but I'll tell her story when I get her drawn and posted up.

essentially what I'm trying to express here is that the planet's views on women are in many ways similer to the 40's-50's in America, a woman's place is in the kitchen when she's not spitting out babies. woman's lib is at best a pipe dream, they DO have rights, but they're definately not equal citizens socially.

drafting them unwillingly into the IG is cruel, and there is no intended kindness for the most part in them doing this. however that doesn't mean nessiarily that some kindness doesn't result. in the regiment they're a skilled valued asset, they rise in rank, they have rights and responsibilities that aren't merely "housewife" and they're allowed to be who and what they want without an ignorant society's unbending judgement. many many of them are very bitter about their home planet, and would never willingly return even if they could. and every time there's a mustering there's always several who sign themselves up without being drafted first, desperately wanting off the planet that hates them.

I suppose I'm just trying to express that this isn't a juvenile wanna be porn idea like those "all women's prison" skin flicks on late night TV.

I know you're not out to make some weird porno lol :lol: I completely understand what you're talking about - although I am not a lesbian, I have have known quite a few and I know sexuality often isn't as simple as being homosexual or not.

I could very much imagine this happening in the WH40K universe; the humans/Imperial (I can't remember what their collective name for those serving under the veggie emperor) never were the kindest, infact, I consider the people of that era extremely cold and uncaring, giving a crap for no one except the "god emperor". I feel that the humans of WH40K have lost touch with caring for civilians, or anyone of a lower rank than their stupid emperor (incase you haven't noticed, I really don't like the Imperial :XD: ). Anyways, what I mean is a planet like which you have described is a good example of the kind of mistreatment the human race suffers under their own juristiction and in my opinion fits in pretty much perfectly with WH40K human planets. Not sure if any of this paragraph made sense, but hopefully you get my idea (sort of) =P

Be sure to be nice and detailed with the backgrounds of all your characters; it often makes a picture even more interesting.

The Imperium of Man (as it's proper name is) is comprised of over a million worlds of every shape and color. many of which are quite nice, full of happy equal people. and some are just utter shitholes. and most fall somewhere inbetween. this particular one has spawned it's own brand of crazy mostly due to the lack of numbers of females. but the Imperium being largely uncaring of really anything on these planets doesn't bother to do anything about it. besides the lesbian regiment is very very good at what they do.

Ah yes the Imperium; I shall make a note to remember that! And ya, the Imperium cares little about the planets which fall under it's umbrella. At least not unless they start to revolt against the emperor. And they're always after new recruits...
