Talvikki "Talvi" Laine is a character in UNIVER.SYS. She is a TAN (Technological Anthropomorph) from Virta, and the twin sister of Arvi Laine.

History

Talvi is published to Moeverse on March 3, 2024. Her visual design is published on March 23, 2024.

Character

Talvi is bubbly, and can be sassy and unafraid to speak her mind. While she is equally fascinated with action movies and racing like Arvi, Talvi's skills are mostly in speaking, aspiring to host a talk show someday. She often broadcasts her commentary on Virta's radio station, where she hosted her own show, which garnered her quite the fanbase.

Due to her involvment with the bustling city life, Talvi often spends a lot on sweets and candies to snack often, and occasionally music and movie-related merchandises. She also ventures on more diverse fashion styles.

She and Arvi are big fans of the Aurorean Highway series, a popular show in Lumi about an adventurous group of penguin racers. Talvi got inspired by the show to take up racing, sometimes being Arvi's co-driver, though she eventually found herself to be a better supporter than a driver.

Trivia

Technical

  • Talvi is the personification of the Nokia Talkman series of mobile phones first released in 1984. It is also referred to as Mobira Talkman.
    • Arvi and Talvi being twins are inspired by how the Nokia Actionman and Talkman series were both released in 1984, and had similar models and features.[1]
  • Talvi's name is both a wordplay (Talvikki and Talkman), and a female Finnish given name, meaning winter.[2]
    • Her last name Laine means wave in Finnish and Estonian, which alludes to signal waves.
  • Her color scheme is derived from the Nokia Talkman's hardware and monochrome display.[3] Unlike Arvi who has more green than blue, Talvi has more blue than green.
  • Talvi's outfit is derived from 80s street/urban style, referencing both Talkman's release year and its popularity in big cities around Nordic countries and mainly Europe.[4]
    • The box she is carrying is based on this picture.[5] She can connect it to devices like megaphones and microphones.

Misc.

  • Her love of action media is inspired from how old Nokia mobile phones, including the Talkman, were used in action movies such as Lethal Weapon series.[6] [7]
    • Her favorite character in Aurorean Highway is Pekki, aka the "Epic Penguin".[8]
  • Her favorite foods are licorice ropes and blueberry pies.
