EVE Player Celebrities - The Starlet: Sindel Pellion

Hard-drinking, plain-speaking and probably more capable in a bar fight than you or I, Sindel also has the voice of an angel. If that was a hard-drinking, bar-fighting angel, that is.

Among the more surprising things to come out of the creative morass that is EVE culture is the steady stream of parody songs. Over the years, many interesting re-imaginings of popular songs have been given an EVE makeover, to the amusement of EVE players and the bemusement of the rest of the world.

Sindel Pellion managed to transcend this by delivering some genuinely stellar vocal performances to some finely crafted and very funny lyrics. Perhaps her finest hour was Titan, her version of Maroon 5's Payphone, although her whole back catalogue is well worth a listen.

Sindel also runs the Angel Project in EVE Online, which she uses to provide assistance to struggling players who might have fallen on hard times or new players looking for a bit of a boost to dodge the grind. She does all of this with a sharp, sarcastic wit which she frequently uses to amuse and terrify both on her blog, Sindel's Universe, and as a vocal member of the #Tweetfleet on Twitter (@SindelPellion).

You could say Sindel Pellion is New Eden's answer to Sarah Silverman, she is verifiably one of EVE Online's 5% - an actual girl - but don't bring this up or she'll tear your face off with an incisive quip from her potty mouth. ;)

Broken paramedic and coffee-drinking Englishman whose favourite dumb animal is an oxymoron. After over a decade of humping and dumping the fat and the dead, my lower spine did things normally reserved for Rubik's cubes, bringing my career as a medical clinician to an unexpectedly early end. Fortunately, my real passion is in writing and given that I'm now highly qualified in the art of sitting down, I have the time to pursue it. Having blogged about video games (well, mostly EVE Online) for years, I hope to channel my enjoyment of wordcraft and my hobby of gaming into one handy new career that doesn't involve other people's vomit.
