The ArenaNet MMO Guild Wars 2 is getting a brand new NPC in November drawn from the ranks of actual life: April Arellano, a Youngsters’s Miracle Community Champion little one, who’s being added to the game as a part of the studio’s Additional Life Game Day occasion.

Arellano’s right leg was amputated when she was simply 15 months outdated, after septic shock set in following a bout of pneumonia. Now 10, “April fortunately navigates the world with a prosthetic leg,” her CMN biography says. “She likes to sing, dance and carry out in native theater productions. The Arellanos attribute April’s life to CHOC and the various medical doctors and nurses who handled April like their very own daughter.”

In Guild Wars 2, Arellano will probably be often known as April the Mesmer Wunderkind, an adept mesmer—a magical duelist who makes a speciality of phantasm—and “serial meddler” born within the village of Garenhoff, simply outdoors of Divinity’s Attain. ArenaNet mentioned it labored with the real-life April and her mother and father on the creation of the character, however it’s holding again the main points for the complete reveal, which can happen throughout a 24-hour Additional Life Game Day stream on November 4. It did reveal, nonetheless, that April will probably be voiced in Guild Wars 2 by famed voice actor Jennifer Hale.

“We’re so excited for everybody to dig into April’s little journey throughout our Additional Life Game Day,” narrative designer Indigo Boock wrote. “I don’t need to reveal too many secrets and techniques simply but, however I can say that getting to speak with April Lynn and study her story was such a delight. I used to be instantly impressed by her confidence (and her dance strikes, in fact). April’s character in-game is resilient, courageous, and stuffed with attraction—however she barely compares to her namesake. We will’t wait so that you can witness our little mesmer’s shenanigans firsthand.”
