So these are the meaning of names that each character in PP have.
Calesnk - So his name really doesn’t have a meaning so I make one up. His name means “warrior” or “the one who carries.”
Danic - So I took the meaning of his name from Danica, which means “Morning star.”
Dari - his meaning goes, it means “maintains possessions well.”
Dimitri - Name means “Earth-lover.” He’s afraid to die.
Elisa - her name means “God is my oath”
Olek (Inspector) - His name means “defender of man.” I believe it fits his character.
Jorji - I love his meaning, his name means “ Powerful person and people give respect to".
Sergiu - His name means “attendent, servant.”
Shae - her name fits her because her name means “ full of majesty”.
Vince - His name means “conquering.”
****Just so you know, these names could have multiple meanings. Some names have no meaning or some weird meaning. I didn’t do all the characters name so maybe I’ll list them later.*****
Hello, my lovely mortals! Since it’s Valentines Day, I decided to give you a Valentines gift, in which they are headcanons, but the Valentines version. These are what I’m thinking.
1.) What helps Elisa fall asleep faster Sergiu sings her a lullaby that he was sung to when he was a child from his father. Little did he know he sang a sleeping charm ;)
2.) (As mentioned previously) Elisa did not like Sergiu at all due to her prejudice towards Arstotzka and due to Arstotzkian soldiers invading and harming other Kolechians she has a negative view on them. Sergiu did have prejudiced views on Kolechians until he got into the Six War and saw how Kolechians were people too and they (Kolechians soldiers) are pawns in this war. It is a long story on how they fell in love. (Plus I got inspired a little bit from Pride & Prejudice).
3.) What Elisa won’t admit (or at least out loud) she loves when Sergiu hugs her from behind, kisses her (
especially on the neck), and when Sergiu plays with her hair.
4.) Sergiu wants to purpose to Elisa with a family heirloom ring that was passed down from generations, but he had sold it to help pay for his medical bills
5.) Since Elisa wants to name the baby boy after the inspector (The inspector name is Olek), but if Sergiu and Elisa have a girl, they would like to name her either Svetlana, Olena, Milana, or Yuliya (comment below and you decide my pretties).
**Ok these are really just Sergisa fluff, oh well*****
Happy Valentine Day!
old game, Papers Please may not be relevant anymore but we can always talk about the loveliest couple in the game x)
Had to draw them both for Valentine’s day today
i totally did not try to save him 4 times after letting Elisa in, and my hands are definitely not shaking when im waiting for the shooters to come and kill the useless guards
also their scene could be distracted easily and forget that after Elisa, the entrant doesnt have a Polio vaccine cert-

I know, this game not value of especially characters personality.
But drawing characters simply because I like it.
**A short story I have made for papers, please. I had a writing surge. I will continue to write stories. Enjoy my lovely Mortal.**
***I will a add a trigger warning because it does deal with a character wanting to die***
A young woman lied in an earthy ground, exhausted, and beaten. She allowed the rains to soak her, there was no point in moving if she had a chance to die. Her tears died, regardless of the rain, she stared, unbothered, at the woods she surrounded herself. All darkened and murky. This was a perfect way to die alone.
It would be better off if I was gone, she thought as the rain poured and the woods darkened even more that no branches can be seen. It didn’t matter if someone saw her, all she wanted was to die. She wanted to be with her family that was stolen from her, she wanted Death to come to her and take her. She had no fear, She welcomed Death.
Not too far from the distance, a lady, known as Lady death, walked towards the young woman’s body. She was filled with great sympathy, she felt the young woman’s desire, she wasn’t going to give it to her. She wanted her to wait, though it seems evil. She looked down unto to her and saw her unmoving self.
The young woman can feel another person next to her. She hoped it wasn’t someone she knows. She can hear the stranger bend down to her, and the stranger opened her mouth.
“You poor, poor, little Kalyna*. How you called me to take you away. You are young and not afraid of me, that’s a surprise.” Said Lady Death as if she was a mother speaking to this young lady in the ground. She continued, but lovingly. “Your time isn’t right, according to some seer’s gossip you are still needed here. To this, I am sorry, but I can’t take to your family.” Lady Death looked away with guilt, but she continued. “I am guilty of taking everyone from you, I decided that I’ll repay you someday.” Lady Death wanted to touch this young woman’s face as a mother would when she is comforting her, but she knows that once she touches her, the young woman would be dead. “Now go to sleep, someone will find and take care of you.” Said Lady Death as she stood up, took a leave and slightly tossed it to cover the young woman’s eyes, and left the young woman for someone to find her.
Her heart beats rapidly on her chest. She was frightened of what she had heard. Was that Death speaking to her and denying her fate? Her mind raced on what she felt, while she was shivering. Would Death come back to her when she dies from the cold rain? But Lady Death said she won’t die yet. She wanted to move, but the rain had buried her to the ground and her being homeless kept telling her to stay. Now fear had taken over, she is alone, yet she refused to cry about it. Her mind screamed for help, her lips refused to move, she prayed for someone to find her. While her mind was lost into her own thought, she didn’t hear a voice calling for her, a familiar voice.
Lady Death hadn’t moved far away from the young lady, she leaned onto a tree and watched. She sees a young man picking up the young lady to safety and warmth. She had a feeling that the man comforted her when she let out weaken scream. She knew this young man would take care of her, there is no need to follow. She left, knowing what’s to come. I will come see you again and I will repay you one day, miss Elisa.
* Kalyna is a national symbol for Ukraine, it a red berry that grows in Ukraine. It represents beauty, womanhood, love, etc.
Hello my darlings, here are some headcanons that I was thinking that might be interesting.
Papers Please Universe:
1.) The Inspector and his family are Jewish. In Arstotzka, Jewish people aren’t exactly treated fairly and the nation is pretty anti-Semitic. The Inspector and his family used to live in a small Jewish community before The Inspector was selected for the October Lottery. The Inspector and his wife tries to teach their son about tradition. (*I also think we should have some Jewish representation).
2.) Calensk has 3 children a daughter and 2 sons, however Calensk and his oldest son don’t get along. They both end up fighting (politics, family, future, etc.) The oldest son moved out, which made Calensk emotional, but he doesn’t show. He wishes to see his son.
3.) Antegrian Whistle-blower and Vince Lestrade are good friends, but fight like a married couple (I don’t ship them, it’s a friendship).
4.) Elisa *had* 3 older brothers growing up. The oldest died after fighting for a year, the second oldest ran away from home because (he is a horrible brother) he didn’t want to fight the war, he left his family to fend for himself (he could be alive, but Elisa considers him dead to her). And the third oldest, sadly, ended his life because he felt like he was a burden to Elisa.
5.) Elisa’s father actually didn’t die because of the war, he got arrested for working with the Bratva ( it’s like the Russian mafia brotherhood). Her mother died because of a bombing. (Like I said, I took her family one by one. She didn’t have a great teen years). With both parents gone, she had to live with her aunt, who later kicked her out because her aunt believes Elisa is bad luck.
*BONUS* Sergisa Fluff + random stuff
1.) Elisa steals all the blankets and Sergiu’s clothes, no wonder Sergiu died.
2.) Elisa, at first, didn’t actually like Sergiu when she first met him (that’s another story for another time ;)).
3.) I honestly ship Danic Lorun with his watch (they make a good pairing).
4.) TBH, I can see the Antegrian Whistle-blower and Elisa becoming good friends. :>
Elisa: How do you know what’s good for me!!!
Lady Death: THAT MY OPINION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Antegrian Whistle-blower: 0_0
(So there was a time in class where we had to make a type of Japanese love poem and I thought of sergisa?? anyways here ya go
It was a tanka, by the way)
Personally I’d like to believe that Elisa is significantly self-reliant, since she had to make decisions and look out for herself after the death of her parents during the war. Unfortunately, this has made her believe that she has to do everything by herself (and you know wartime. Nobody’s gonna help.)
Even after Sergiu came into her life and helped her and everything, she still (kind of) struggles to realize that she doesn’t have to go through burdens alone, but luckily Sergiu is there to be her support, just as she was for him.
(oml is anyone alive here in the pp fandom)
Reunion from Papers, Please for @a-french-guardsman for gifting me the game <3
„Friend, how are you? I have a small favor to ask. During the war, I met a beautiful girl. I think about her every moment. Yesterday I receive word that she is finally coming here. Please, let her pass and I will be in your debt. Her name is Elisa.“
“During the war, I met a beautiful girl.”
“Her name is Elisa.”
