Welcome to our first installment of The Relic Trilogy Character Playlist. I thought it would be fun to create a playlist with some music that I believe is a reflection of the characters in the Relic Trilogy, starting with Duff Roman. The playlist is a reflection of Duff’s arc in Company Assassin from when we meet him at the Orphanage and following him becoming a member of Z-Crew!
- Welcome to the Jungle – Guns N’ Roses (Appetite For Destruction)
In the jungle lies death, and as Axel Rose so rightly says “You’re in the jungle, baby
You’re gonna die”. Seems fitting enough.
- The Son of Flynn – Daft Punk (Tron Legacy Sound Track)
Every time I hear this song it has such a feeling of wonder. In the movie “Tron: Legacy” this song is played as we are introduced to the adult Sam Flynn and I imagine that something close to this would be playing while Duff first meets Z and is trying to figure out his next steps after leaving the orphanage. In my opinion, the song perfectly captures that feeling of an oncoming adventure.
- Jukebox Hero – Foreigner (4)
Duff has aspirations and goals, he wants to be a hero to everyone in the orphanage. Maybe not one of the jukebox variety but a hero is still a hero.
- I Won’t Back Down – Tom Petty ( Full Moon Fever)
From Duff’s first meeting with Demons, his first time in the jungle, he goes against so much that is unknown to him and finds a way to get through it.
- I was Just a Kid – Nothing But Thieves (Broken Machine)
“I was just a kid, I needed answers, I found a screen, promised adventure”. I feel like those lines speak for themselves.
- Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears for Fears (Songs from the Big Chair)
With the pieces set in place in Company Assassin with Duff, Z, Matilda, and Ravenne all getting ready to make their next move it seems only fitting that big things are coming. If you want to know what those things are then pick up a copy of the next installment of the Relic Trilogy Horizon Found!
