You all know that I rp Santiago in my askblog… some weeks ago he turned into a child and I started asking to myself “how was his childhood, what happened?, did he have a mother/father/uncle/granpa/grandma?, did he grow with his brother Portugal too?”
Because of this I started reading a lot and… oh god, spanish history is extremely difficult! I loved it! Juju and I made some hypothesis… both 2pPortugal and 2pSpain had a mother, Tartessos, aka the first civilization in the Iberian peninsula, if I’m not mistaken, they know about her but they were too little so they can’t remember anything from that period. When the state-city of Tartessos was destroyed, in the 5th century BC, she had to leave her children to the different people of the Iberian Peninsula: Celts, Greeks, Phoenicians and Carthaginians. I like to think that the children grew mostly under the influence of the Phoenicians and Carthaginians’ cultures.
The characters that you see here are the “daddies”, Carthage and Phoenicia (the one with the monkey). Carthage is more of Phoenicia’s little brother who grew up too quickly.
Warning! These are 2p characters! But a nice friend of us is studying old 1p ancients (2pPortugal’s design is from her too!).
