  • Character name: Lurana the Heavy Freight Diesel
  • Class: Black Mesa Research Facility Materials Transport Tug Tram
  • Place of origin: New Mexico
  • Biography:
    • Lurana was built in March 9, 1954 in New Mexico, as part of a series of diesel goods engines for use in the Sector E Materials Transport rail system of the Black Mesa Research Facility. Her life was very uneventful until May 16, 2009, when a teleportation experiment in Sector C of the facility went disastrously wrong. Her owner went to get help after finding out a military group called the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit was sent in to contain the problem by killing all the scientists. After coming back & recovering Lurana from the bottom of a flooded elevator shaft, her owner told her about a place called "Sodor", where he would send her to get her away from all this. After she was loaded onto a boat & brought to the island, a chubby fellow in a suit (who she found out was Sir Richard Topham Hatt, the manager) spoke to her & had her assigned to Ffarquhar Quarry, where she helps Mavis when Toby is unavailable. She also assists in goods work on the rest of the Ffarquhar Branch Line, & helps out as an "odd job diesel" on other areas of the North Western Railway.
  • Persona:
    • Lurana is a helpful engine. Her friends can always count on her. When she's working, her #1 priority is getting the job done. Her determination & strong work ethic are valued by the other engines in Ffarquhar Quarry. This can come to a fault for her, as poorly done jobs cause her to lose her self-control. Having worked near a biology department, she has a slight obsession with science. She also has great respect for steam engines, since they came before her & rail transport wouldn't have reached the level it has if steam engines never happened.
Here's my 1st Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends/The Railway Series fan character.

You have played Half-Life 1 before, right? I didn't make the picture. It's from the Half-Life 1 remake, Black Mesa: Source. I just figured a Sodor Mythos/Combine OverVerse crossover would be cool, & Lurana was the result.
