Character details

The Commodore 128 (aka: C128) is the last 8-bit home computer model released by Commodore (but their last 8-bit computer of all the models was the unreleased C65) and is the significantly expanded successor to the C64 and has full backwards compatibility with it.

C128-tan is represented as a kind and mature woman with long lilac hair and light green eyes. She wears part of her old Commodore uniform- a white dress shirt, black skirt, dark leggings, flat shoes and a grey+white hat with the Commodore insignia on it. Despite being the youngest Commodore-tan of the old family fleet, is often confused as the eldest due to her appearance and calm disposition.

OSC Notes/backstory

Back when she was in service of the Commodore Family fleet she was firm and professional but she was also mature and motherly, and the only one out of the old guard that treated the young cadet Amiga-tan with any welcoming spirit.

Although she lives in obscurity, she still has a tendency to turn a few lovestruck heads on the street. In the early days of her training, the young cadets Amiga-tan and C128-tan both had their respective and secret fanclubs among the Commodore deck crew. While Amiga-chan's natural charm, friendliness and gaming prowess would've garnered the larger [secret] fanbase, C128-tan's sweet, gentle and mature air would have earned her points among a loyal and entrenched [secret] fanbase. Ironically, they never found out about these secret fanbases, but PET-chan and a jealous C64-tan would've broken up their activities countless times.

C128-tan was the only one of the Commodore-tans to know of C65-tan's existence and was her caretaker and mother figure from 1990 until C65-tan's exile by executives in 1991. C128-tan hoped to give the young C65-tan a surprise birthday party while simultaneously presenting the joyous news to her other sisters. But after the horrible news of C65-tan's banishment, she chose not to tell anyone about it -- with the company already in its last throes, she couldn't afford to drop morale even further. It was only after the company collapsed in 1994 that she was free to roam the world as a Wanderer, did she make it her life's work to find the long-lost C65-tan.
