First JODDAS VAPD strip: The Riff of Thrones
Ophelia doesn’t have a very deep background as she’s still a very new addition to the JODDAS VAPD family. If I could describe Ophelia before I met my girlfriend I would describe her as a soulless being (if that makes sense). She didn’t have much of a significant role in JODDAS VAPD. I just drew a goth design and literally had nothing else.
In 2010 I just created a goth character drawing and said, “that looks nice.” A year later when I had an offer to draw comic strips for a local paper I made four comic strips (I just call it the pre JODDAS VAPD stage) to turn in, but only one of the four strips actually got published (A Dan and Patrick strip not the one below):
When I met my girlfriend and she supported me on bringing JODDAS VAPD back I wanted my new love in my strips with me and my friends. I already had an empty shell of a character and threw my girlfriend in. Now Ophelia is one of my favorite characters to write in JODDAS VAPD.
Ophelia has doubts about herself from times, but doesn’t just allow those doubts to keep her down. She may be weird from time to time, but she prefers to think of that trait as being unique and different. Living with Dan she attends school to turn her harsh past into a brighter future. Loved by Dan and accepted by his friends Ophelia is a motherly figure in the JODDAS VAPD family.
