Nini Richman +2014+ by Robaato Nini Richman +2014+ by Robaato
Support Rat Rage Webcomic on Patreon! Updates there every Wednesday evening (and sometimes Friday evenings too)!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
Nini is a shy and timid farm mouse who lives with her father, Mastiff Richman, in a three story (four, if you include the basement) house. She's heavily rich, even though she doesn't rub that in anyone's face, being very modest. She actually dislikes money and has a strong view against it, even at times scolding Rai to stop accepting it for folks in need.

At first, she sees Rai as ignorant and immature, almost detesting him. Throughout the story, she grows to start having a crush on him secretly, whilst still hiding behind that stern exterior she put up from the start. She tends to get a little bent out of shape every time another mouse pays excessive attention to him.

A mouse to hold a lot of secrets inside her, she has a bit of trouble opening up to anyone. Meeting Rai has given her a new outlook on her way of life and opening up to people. She loves to hang out with Jinx and sees him as a big brother. She's overly concerned with her body, particularly her large bosom and "mouse hips", a title given by Rai himself. Even though she really has a lean and small frame, she constantly thinks she's overweight, and displays that concern publicly, which feeds Rai's jokes. 

Being the daughter of Mastiff Richman, one of the head honchos at the corporately unbalanced ArCorp, she has many secrets that can help Rai on this adventure… and a major one that could possibly hurt him.

As with Rai, Nini is super endearing and interesting. Her design is excellent too, a lot of furry heroines have giant breasts but Nini is one of the few where her insanely large bosom does not seem excessive.

I've been thinking about her a lot and I decided that you've actually made a very weak character here. All we know about her is her relationship to Rai. He's mentioned in every paragraph. You should talk more about her life, her goals and who she is rather than who she is in relation to Rai. The only interesting personality trait you mention is that she's rich, but hates money. Is it a secret why this is? You have her hating Rai, then getting a crush on him, like tons of other love interests. Is there a reason why she can't legitimately be interested in him right away, rather than the tropey 'sexual tension' sub-plot? She has the "girl problem" of thinking she's overweight when she's not. On that note, she's skinny AND has large breasts, which isn't very common. It'd be more interesting if she was a bit overweight, more in proportion with her bust size if she really needs it.
I get you've left a lot out because of plot secrets and all that, but what we see here is a very typical 'perfect girlfriend' love interest. I know you probably can't change much because the script is already written, but I hope you'll try to add more depth to her as your comic continues. Thanks for reading.

:bulletred:"I decided that you've actually made a very weak character here."
:bulletblue:Is she weak, though? You can't jump to that conclusion from a face value-sorta perspective.

:bulletred:"Is there a reason why she can't legitimately be interested in him right away, rather than the tropey 'sexual tension' sub-plot?"
:bulletblue:Yup. Can't explain right now. You'll have to read the comic/wait to find out!

:bulletred:"I get you've left a lot out because of plot secrets and all that…"
:bulletblue:Exactly why I can't share a lot of stuff involving Nini. She's farrrr beyond fitting just the "love interest" trope and if I share too much about her, I'll ruin things significantly. ^^; I always take tropes and place a mega-twist on them, that's just how I write my stories. But I give out too much too soon, well, it'll defeat the purpose of a comic. 

:bulletred:"She has the "girl problem" of thinking she's overweight when she's not. On that note, she's skinny AND has large breasts, which isn't very common. It'd be more interesting if she was a bit overweight, more in proportion with her bust size if she really needs it."
:bulletblue:We're not even getting into this debate, lol. They're anthropomorphic animals for cryin' out loud. XD

Again, a rule of thumb is to never take a bio as something resolute to the actual story. Throughout all of your observations, you completely missed/overlooked her connection to Arcorp (the crooked government in RR) and her father, which is a HUGE red flag. Either continue to ponder on her or just wait to read the story. :)

Thanks for taking the time to reply. If you've deliberately made her cliche to fake out your audience, that does sound pretty interesting.

And whatever, if you don't want to talk about body types that's fine. You seem to know anatomy pretty well, so I figure it was a legitimate criticism. You can make as many skinny, large breasted women as you want. There's nothing inherently sexist about it on it's own. The other characters vary in body type enough for it not to be a problem.

Just don't take a real-world issues like self-image, slut-shaming and depression and play it for laughs.

Question: When Rai says "'mouse hips'", does he mean they are narrow/petite or wide/plump?

when you say she's a "farm mouse" are you describing her species, or are you saying she grew up on a farm?
Reply
:iconrobaato:
Robaato Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
The latter. In Rat Rage, "mice" are known as "girls" or "women", so basically its translated as "farm girl". :nod:
