Following on from the last pic, here’s some doodles of the small engine. I didn’t really want to give her a name because I figured it’d be more interesting if the ‘lower classes’ were just referred to by number. I’m still thinking on this, but for naming’s sake lets call her ‘Connie’.

Given her a literal and figurative ‘rough and tumble’ look and attitude, being somewhat of a runt, kicked about a lot but having gained a smarmy, sarcastic attitude.
