On XMR we have a proud history of strong and memorable OC’s. As such, in June we turn to one original character that we have come to love and now have lost. Hartley Lindwall, or Basswave, came into the world of XMR to take over the reins of X-Corp as Deputy Officer of Operations, keeping things running when those who had set up the organisation could not. While she had been there, X-Corp has grown and undergone some big changes. Sharp, but also kind and with a good sense of humour, Hart was able to help move things past the bake sales and get the ball rolling on expansion, even if times (and people) have been challenging for her. After all, it takes a special kind of someone to deal with skeletons in the server room.
Hart’s strength of character is only proven by what she has survived; a convert of War, caught up in the midst of Purifier attacks where she was injured and in between, she was working with other mutants, fighting the good fight in a Peace Corps style group, demonstrating a great strength of character to carry on helping others through and following adversity, including on a very personal level.
Yet sometimes, the candles that burn the brightest also burn the shortest and this plot has seen Hartley’s untimely end. From her nearest and dearest to people who have just been touched by X-Corp’s good work, Basswave is going to be missed by many in our world of XMR.
Rest in peace, Hartley.
