Speed is everything for Riley. It’s what drives her, what keeps her moving cargo from place to place. She’s one of the fastest tracers on Outer Earth, and is fiercely loyal to her crew, the Devil Dancers. But she’s about to find out that there are things in her past she can’t run from, no matter how fast she goes.
You don’t want to get on Amira’s bad side. She’s a highly-skilled fighter, and a veteran tracer who has been transporting cargo on Outer Earth for over a decade. As the leader of The Devil Dancers, Amira doesn’t take kindly to anyone causing problems for her crew. That doesn’t mean she’ll be able to protect them forever…
Aaron Carver is a bit of a douche. He likes nothing better than pulling stupid pranks, making fun of people, and drinking copious amounts of alcoholic homebrew. The Devil Dancers tolerate him because he’s a genius-level engineer, able to create handy gadgets out of very little. And despite his personality, he’d rather die than let down his crew.
Yao Shen and Kevin O’Connell. She’s tiny, he’s not. She talks a lot, he doesn’t. Riley once called them the Twins as a joke, and the name stuck. They run together, fight together, and it’s rumoured they’ve never in fact been more than ten feet apart since the day they met. Above all, they keep each other safe – and when Outer Earth is shaken by a deadly conspiracy, they’ll need to.
This is Outer Earth. Three hundred miles up, six miles in diameter, eighteen in circumference. But numbers alone can’t describe what it really is: an overcrowded, dirty, rusting ring, a century-old space station housing the last of humanity. As Tracer begins, Outer Earth is enjoying a precarious peace among its warring factions – but that won’t last long.
When he was drawing the Devil Dancers concept art, LA artist Tyler Chow sent over several concept sketches. I’ve collected them here – they’re a great insight into how his artistic mind works. All of them are available in high-res, and I think they’re bad-ass.
