Update 9: Missing

This is our introduction to the face of “The Man,” in Captain Harold Reis. If you’d like more info on this guy, he can be found in the Cast page.
It didn’t occur to me until after we decided to enter the coloring phase that Shaw and Harris could have matching jackets. After we talked about this, it dawned on me that they could have a kind of informal “uniform” on board, pairing a white tank-top and a tan jacket. If you add that dimension to the story, you’ll find an interesting character detail about everyone on board.
With Harris and Shaw, they’re the oldest members of The Binturong crew, and they’ve been friends for decades. They’re wearing the jackets. In Chen’s case, he’s got the jacket somewhere in his “command center,” but it gets warm in there. With Avery, I wanted her to have a totally different outfit, because she doesn’t like the formality of uniforms. You’ll see why that’s important as we proceed.
