Ninian (Fractures Alternate Universe)
“Hopefully the final Fractures article ever to be featured.”
The words of a creator as he contemplates his own creation, and passes judgment on its existence.
Ninian is one of the older characters on the wiki, dating back to 2011. Back then, she was the female protagonist of BobTheDoctor27’s Frozen Calling, and the effective love interest for Glonor. She was just an ordinary cop, and later Chief of Police, in the Elysium Police Department.
Since then, she has become quite the fan favorite. So favored, in fact, that she earned a spot in the comic epic Zero Hour, where she continued to be one of the best characters in any scene.
So. What makes her so popular? Well, the cynical side of me just wants to say that she’s popular just because of that. She’s a she, and on a wiki full of hormonal teenage boys, female characters tend to draw a crowd.
But I don’t think that this is true. I feel the popularity of Ninian is deeper than just her gender. She is a very fleshed out character, despite her limited story appearances. She is tough, compassionate, brave, and a natural leader. She is always the brightest light in any room, and for good reason. She strives to do the best she can, and to protect those she cares about.
And with that, this spotlight marks the end of an era. For nearly the last decade, we have featured various articles from the Fractures Universe, all well written and constructed. It will be unfortunate to see them go, but everything has its time. Everything ends.
Come, my friends. Let us make new legends, for that is the way of the BIONICLE.
