BERZRK is a fun adventure. A turn-on told in a humorous voice in a light, fun way, from a positive point of view. A blood and gore joyride on the streets and roofs of NYC.

 

Turq is a cool, sexy, and playful hero/anti-hero. She has her own unique look, style, and moral code. 

 

She is romantic/sexy, likable, and confident enough to be able to laugh at herself. But enemies should run when she stops laughing.

 

Turq is an intelligent young woman pushed by bad guys into a berzerker mode. This is the beginning of her eventually becoming a brutal, blood-thirsty killer without pity. In the future, she becomes inured to the violence, becomes a conscienceless killer who doesn't need a good reason to go into berzerker mode.

 

Turq may be immoral by traditional senior citizens in the bible belt standards, but she has her own moral code. She makes her own laws because politicians haven’t done very well, have they? For instance, she has a six-hour before the hook-up rule. A don’t hit a woman in the face rule. Only hurt someone who deserves it. Once an opponent goes down, make sure the only way he gets up is for the EMTs to pick him. Don’t believe anything Kilani says.

 

In her early days of becoming a berserker, the uncontrollable violence is not something Turq chooses. It is forced upon her BERZRK is a one-hour TV action series in development. 

 

Turquoise Thomlinson is BERZRK. Our hero is an NYU communications major and part-time catalog model. Turq has serious anger issues, or more accurately maniacal, destructive, sometimes lethal anger issues. Turq is trying to learn how to channel her rages into doing good, by eviscerating bad guys, rather than beating up her dates, club doormen, or mall Santas. 

 

BERZRK is based on a short story excerpted from "The Joys of Revenge Therapy”, the introductory novel of the Thumpers Chronicles.

TURQ BACKSTORY

 

Turq lives in Harlem with her mother, Nefertiti, little sis Ebony, and brother Zircon.

 

Turq was raped by her brother’s gang as his initiation. Her sister Ebony was going to be the next gang-rape victim. Turq started a war on the gangbangers to save Eb. She killed all of them, one at a time.  She found she enjoyed killing them. Got off on it.

 

She is intimidating. Was dating a HS football player. He dissed her, and she beat the shit out of him. After that, she didn’t get asked out very much. 

 

Her basic fight skills were picked up living in gang territory, going to school with crazy bitches. She fights dirty. Honed her skills when taught by Becca, former IDF special forces sergeant. She can turn anything into a weapon. She can kill with magazine. A thumb drive.  Or a pile of napkins.  In fact, that’s one of her cool things McIver’ing deadly weapons out of normal stuff. In Berzrk she fights with her door key. Also, with stiletto heels on both feet and hands. 

 

She had a boyfriend at NYU, but she was too high maintenance, and she threw a lamp that hit him in the head. He dumped her which made her mad, but more at herself than him. She’s frustrated in the love/sex area, which does not improve her temper. She knows she should be able to control her violence, but she can’t.

 

She plans to be an on-camera news person. She’s certainly pretty enough. She’s worked her ass off on her voice and elocution. She is a summer intern at a local tv station. When plot demands, she can chase a story like Peter Parker.
