Actor Audition Script
King Arthur: Older man (40-50 years old) Refined; voice is strong, commanding and regal. Arthur is the main villain for the first part of the game. Appears as a massive knight in black armor riding a black horse.
“I shall give chase. Spread out and go after them… Slay them on sight.” (Somewhat intense) ”A knight? Bah! You’re a fool. Not even worth my effort to strike down.” (Sarcasm – with energy) “It seems your impersonation of a knight has improved… somewhat.” (Not impressed) ”Shall we have another look at that unsightly swordsmanship of yours?” (Sarcastic, Challenging)
Merlina: This character plays two roles in the game. In the first half, she is a fragile heroine, given to clouded expressions and introspection – her voice kind and comforting. In the last half, she is the villain, lowered voice. Not necessarily menacing or over- the-top. She is sad and stoic and has brought about her dark plan because she feels she must. A bit awe-inspiring. Young woman (20’s)
“O brave knight, swift as the wind! Heed my call!” (Wishful–with energy)
”Why do flowers bloom, knowing they are destined to wither?” (Thoughtful/Innocent Curiosity)
“Their time of beauty is so short-lived…” ”Beyond this misty lake sleeps a sacred sword.” (Foretelling – lower tone)
Caliburn: Caliburn is the magical talking sword that accompanies Sonic throughout the game. He is somewhat arrogant and opinionated; as a rare and valuable magical weapon, Caliburn is very judgmental of Sonic, later grudgingly admitting that Sonic has finally become a true knight. Male – 20 – 30’s, a bit indeterminate. Tone should be mid-range.
“Humph! The impertinent one is you, knave!” (Unimpressed–confident) “Brace yourself, for I shall train you until you are worthy!” (Challenging) “You fool! A knight must always be on his guard!” (Reprimanding)
“Sonic the Hedgehog… You have mastered the code of chivalry. From this day forth, you shall be Sir Sonic, Knight of the Wind.” (Resolved and Impressed)
