    1. What is your name, and is there any thought/meaning behind it?
    My name is Benjamin Conway, Only my closest friends ever call me Ben. I don't think it has any particular meaning, I think my parents just liked the sound of it.

    2. What is your favourite animal and why?
    I would have to say probably a tigress -- she's incredibly powerful and doesn't take **** from anybody, but she has a soft side too, she uses that power to protect her cubs. It's very noble and admirable.

    3. Who is your favourite historical person?
    Leonardo da Vinci, because I'm sure people thought he was f***ing crazy with all his weird inventions... and maybe he was, but he didn't let that get him down. Some of his stuff was way out in left field, but he still just did what he wanted.

    4. What is the most prominent aspect of your personality?
    The most prominent? Well, I like to think of myself as a nice guy, but I don't take **** from anyone, so that's probably it.

    5. What kind of clothing do you wear and why?
    Something practical and stylish. Often, at work, I'll wear dark, tight jeans and a black v-neck, but I mix it up a little -- button-ups aren't out of the question.

    6. What historical period is your favourite? Why?
    I would have to say the Italian Renaissance because you had this huge burst of creativity coming pretty much out of nowhere. Even today, if you ask someone who the greatest artists of all time are, they're going to look back at Michelangelo, Raphael, and Leonardo da Vinci.

    7. Who is your favourite fictional character?
    I'd say Hercules, because he always fought hard for the ones he loved.

    8. Have you ever committed a crime?
    Well, nothing major. I've never shoplifted or hurt anybody, but who hasn't done a few things they'd rather not have the cops find out about? Nice try though.

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?
    Is there anyone who can honestly say he hasn't? Well, my mother died in a car accident when I was twelve. She was driving me to school because I had missed the bus, and a driver going the other way had fallen asleep at the wheel, crossed over the centerline, and hit us head-on. I just... I know this is ridiculous, but I still feel like maybe it was my fault, maybe if I hadn't missed the bus... and there was nothing I could do... Sorry, I need a few minutes.

    (after a short break)
    10. What is your greatest flaw?
    Umm... well, honestly, I think I've got a bit of an anger issue -- I mean, I'd never hurt anyone, but I sometimes let my temper get away from me.

    11. Do you like yourself (despite eventual flaws mentioned above)?
    Of course, I'm amazing.

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?
    I think I'd like to gain a little muscle, I feel like I'm too scrawny.

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?
    I would have super strength, of course. Super speed, to get where there was trouble fast. A name? BenjaMAN! Haha, no, that's pretty lame...

    14. Do you have any pets?
    Yes, Drake is my pet dragon. I love him, but he's sometimes a handful. You'd be surprised just how much trouble one dragon can cause. He likes to curl up in a little ball and sleep next to me on the bed.
    . . .
    What do you mean "Does he breathe fire?"? Do you piss orange juice? What kind of ridiculous question is that?

    15. Are you vain?
    *chuckle* I think just about anyone who says "no" to this is lying to themselves.

    16. What colour is your hair and in what manner do you wear it?
    It's dark black, and I've got it cut medium length and wear it a little shaggy and disheveled. Don't tell anyone, but I actually spend a lot of time getting it to look like I havent spent any time on it.

    17. Do you have any titles?
    Titles? Like "prince" or "duke"? Haha, no.

    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?
    I think a lot of people would say Hitler here, but since he gets all of the attention, I'll go with Stalin. He was worse in some ways.

    19. What is your favourite colour? Why?
    Blue; I couldn't tell you why, I just like the way it looks. It's soothing and classy and can be incredibly intense all at the same time.

    20. Have you ever been close to death?
    I almost drowned when I was ten... that's about the closest I've gotten.

    21. Have you ever killed someone?
    God, no.

    22. What do you fear?
    I wouldn't be able to stand it if anything happened to my little brother, he means the world to me.

    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?
    Well, first, I'd think "Oh my God, I'm a giant insect!" It would be neat to fly around for a bit (I can fly, right?) and see what it's like. I think eventually I'd just want to be myself again, though.

    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?
    I'm definitely on the good side. What species? Probably human -- elves are a little too weak, and dwarves are short and ugly.

    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?
    Light side, definitely. The dark side's just too creepy and weird, that's not me.

    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?
    It's an epic adventure about a man who has to save his one true love from the firey depths of hell. It's called "To Hell and Back".

    27. What would your dream-house look like?
    Big, lots of rooms, modern.

    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?
    Hmm... that's a hard one. I already said that my favorite fictional character is Hercules, but I don't think bringing him to life nowadays would be a very good idea. How about Zorro? Haha, I know, it's a little weird, but he was always fighting for people, for what was right. I think we could use a little more of that today, don't you?

    29. What kind of books do you prefer?
    Action novels, thrillers.

    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?
    Hmmm... that's a good one. I could see myself getting killed trying to break up a bad fight. Realistically, though, a car crash or getting too old too fast is much more likely.

    'Satan. Don't give me that look; have you ever read Paradise Lost? He's the only human character in it; the guy has a bad rap I think.

    8. Have you ever committed a crime?
    'Huh... I suppose hiding a dangerous "mutant" that Zion's Counsel wants destroyed probably counts as a crime but if you ask me the crime is trying to destroy her in the first place'.

    'Everyone regrets significant parts of their life, you're always thinking: Oh, I should have done this, or I should have said that. Sometimes you only figure out what you should have done in the aftermath... What do you mean I still haven't answered the question?'

    'I'd grow huge feathered wings and just take to the skies, man. I wouldn't do the whole superhero thing sweeping aroung and meddling with other people's lives. I'd just fly righ across the open deserts and the mountain ranges and everywhere else. I'd call myself Free'
    14. Do you have any pets?
    'No... unless you count that old desert rat. Hahaha!!!... Nah... he's alright really'1

    'Spun gold, short and plain'

    8. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?
    'You can't mess with history. If you kill one person in the past it could have really f*cked up conscequences for future people. It's the Chaos theory'1
    9. What is your favourite colour? Why?
    'Red. Like her hair'
    20. Have you ever been close to death?

    'No-one's going to admit what they're afraid of'
    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?
    'Well I'd probably be like: WTF? And then I'd remember I'm an insect and my brain is in my ass...'
    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?
    'Ah. I'd want to be one of those giant eagle things, the one Gandalf rides on. Sweet'

    1. What is your name, and is there any thought/meaning behind it?
    My name is Esmeralda Stellina. My parents gave it to me simply because they felt a pretty girl needed a pretty name.

    2. What is your favorite animal and why?
    I really like orcas (killer whales), which is funny, considering they aren't exactly cute, graceful, and feminine. I guess I like them because they're large, powerful, and fierce (at least, where I come from, they are). No one ****s with an orca and lives.

    3. Who is your favorite historical person?

    I don't have one. Really, I don't, so don't ask.

    4. What is the most prominent aspect of your personality?
    Most people say it's my fiery temper and overall disposition.

    5. What kind of clothing do you wear and why?
    Tight shirts, bodices, and blouses. They allow me to show off my best assets

    6. What historical period is your favorite? Why?
    What you people would call the Middle Ages. It reminds me of when I was a girl, and lived in a much simpler time and place

    7. Who is your favorite fictional character?
    I don't really connect to fictional characters. They're just the vehicles for the plot of the story.

    8. Have you ever committed a crime?
    Absolutely not!

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?
    Like I'm going to tell you... Well, I guess you could say it was when I got stuck in that crystal when I was supposed to be fighting to protect my friends. They grew old, had children and grandchildren, and died while I slept for 1000 years. What a lazy ass.

    10. What is your greatest flaw?
    Having some of the most amazing powers known to man or elf-kind, and not knowing how to use them properly. Do you know how much that sucks?

    11. Do you like yourself (despite eventual flaws mentioned above)?
    Of course I like myself! Just because I can't control my powers right doesn't mean I am ashamed of myself

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?
    Bigger boobs? I know they're quite large already, but do you think an extra inch or two would be too much?

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?
    I would call myself the "Emerald Princess". I would have super strength and invulnerability, and be able to control my other powers; making all evil fear me.

    14. Do you have any pets?
    No, unfortunately

    15. Are you vain?
    No, of course not. I am modestly the most beautiful girl in all Marinia, if not the world.

    16. What color is your hair and in what manner do you wear it?
    My hair is dark brown, almost black. I wear it in a high ponytail, tied with a bright yellow ribbon

    17. Do you have any titles?
    Princess Esmeralda Stellina of Marinia

    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?
    Why is everyone obsessed with this guy called Hitler? I don't get it. It's not his fault he did what he did; for one, he wasn't born a racist pig (he learned it), and for another, he didn't come up with the idea of killing millions of people (he was just in a position to approve of methods proposed by other racists, which would otherwise be called fanciful). I mean sure the guy sounds like a bastard, but he lived in a time and place where men like him had a fertile ground to spread their seeds of hatred. Honestly, I don't see how removing one person could really change history that much, so why bother.

    19. What is your favorite color? Why?
    Bright yellow. I don't know why, but it some seems natural. I guess because it reminds me of warmth, happiness, and the sun.

    20. Have you ever been close to death?
    Yes, inside that crystal when I was asleep. I as I watched it encase me, I thought for certain I was going to die. It was terrible. Imagine my surprise when I awoke thinking I was in the afterlife, only to learn I was still very much alive, but all my friends were dead for generations. It was heartbreaking.

    21. Have you ever killed someone?
    Only the ones who tried to hurt me or the people I love

    22. What do you fear?
    I fear my destiny. Supposedly, I am the only one who can defeat the powers of evil, but to do that, I must first fight and destroy my evil counter-part. My greatest fear will be he will be someone right under my nose; someone I love and trust...

    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?
    One word "Eww!!!!"

    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?
    I'd be an Elf, of course. In a world where elves are the greatest beings in all creation and masters of magic, what else would a boring old human girl with abnormal magical powers she doesn't know **** about want to be?

    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?
    Light side. I was chosen to be the champion of light, so naturally I would prefer the light side

    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?
    Carmen - by Georges Bizet. It is about a gypsy girl named Carmen, who seduces a soldier, only to leave him for a bull-fighter. Unfortunately, though, the soldier has already deserted his unit and killed his commander just to be with Carmen, so he kills her in a fit of jealous rage. Okay, I know it's technically not a musical in the sense it's not something you'd hear on Broadway, like West Side Story or Cats; but I have a beautiful singing voice, so I think I'd be able to sing the part of Carmen well; plus, I like the music. *hums the Habenera*

    27. What would your dream-house look like?
    A graceful palace, built on the coast of a tropical lagoon with clear blue water stretching out as far as the eye could see...

    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?
    I don't know. I read to entertain myself, not to fall in love with someone who doesn't exist.

    29. What kind of books do you prefer?
    Anything that will entertain me on a rainy day or late at night when I'm settling in for bed

    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?
    After what I went through with that crystal? That's the last thing I want to think about!

    1. What is your name, and is there any thought/meaning behind it?
    The name's Fei but if you call me that I'll probably chuck something at you. Actually, you know what? Don't call me anything at all because I don't like you enough. **sighs** If you must know the meaning it's "To fly/Dance in the air". What can I say....my mum loved the sky & she certainly loved flying (seeing as how she was a Pilot and all). I hate the thought of flying...it's what got my mother killed & I usually don't look up at the sky if I can help it.

    2. What is your favourite animal and why?
    I hate animals! No seriously...I've never had any animals at home. Don't need any either - got myself a younger brother.

    3. Who is your favourite historical person?
    Oh Hell! Why'd you have to bring up History? Don't you know I'm failing? Dad doesn't know though, so do shut up about it!

    4. What is the most prominent aspect of your personality?
    Hmm, let me think long and hard about that one...NOT! I'm not wasting my time on something that stupid. Oh and FYI, if you haven't caught on yet, I'm very snarky!

    5. What kind of clothing do you wear and why?
    Whatever Dad can afford to buy me. Jeans & Tees are about it for the moment but I'm not complaining!

    6. What historical period is your favourite? Why?
    Didn't I warn you NOT to bring up History? Did your mother drop you on your head as a kid or something?

    7. Who is your favourite fictional character?
    Bartimaeus (from his self-titled trilogy) - he's a Djinn with snark & who I'd want to be cast as, if they ever make the movie.

    8. Have you ever committed a crime?
    Sure I have! Does locking my brother up in the bathroom, for a whole day, count?

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?
    I guess crying at mum's funeral - even though I'd promised myself I wouldn't. But if you breathe a word of it to another soul, you're dead meat!

    10. What is your greatest flaw?
    That I can't tell old Mikey (read: the Arc Michael) to take this job & shove it!

    11. Do you like yourself (despite eventual flaws mentioned above)?
    Sometimes, if I don't have to look at his disgustingly arrogant face!

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?
    First thing I'd do is get rid of these black, feathery monstrosities on my back.

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?
    The guys I'm currently flying with are not cool enough to be superheroes (although most people might not agree with me. Hell, I might even get lynched for saying that!). I'm still considering the villians bit but I don't think the Old guy up there **pointing to the sky without looking upwards** would appreciate it. And anyway, they've already given me my name. I'm taking it to my grave, so you can forget about me spilling the beans!

    14. Do you have any pets?
    Gabe's a pretty cool cat (read: the Arc Gabriel) No, he's not feline. Don't you get jazz references?

    15. Are you vain?
    Maybe about my hair. My mum liked it long so that's how it's going to stay! And I like how it matches my wings for darkness, though I'd never tell that feathery twit (yeah yeah, Mike again) about it.

    16. What colour is your hair and in what manner do you wear it?
    Black as a raven's wing (Oooh, I've always wanted to say that). But maybe I should be saying 'Black as an Arc's wing' instead now? Anyway, I keep it long & braided, so that I don't get any "presents" left behind by my feathered buddies up here.

    17. Do you have any titles?
    Does "The Ice Queen" count? Pretty ironic though, since nothing about me is light & fair!

    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?
    **looking around covertly** I've already bad-mouthed him a couple of times, so I'd rather not say. He can be pretty scary sometimes, although I'll never let him know how he affects me.

    19. What is your favourite colour? Why?
    Teal - because there's no other colour that comes close to describing mum's eyes.

    20. Have you ever been close to death?
    I suppose the first time I tried to use my wings and almost went "Splat!" would count.

    21. Have you ever killed someone?
    Not yet but I'm beginning to understand I might have to.

    22. What do you fear?
    Waking up in Hell! And, since I took on my latest job, that is fast becoming a possibility.

    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?
    Uhm hello....I've got black wings & I almost flew straight into a plane's windshield (?) during my first solo flight. I think I can safely say "Been there, done that!"

    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?
    Could I please be an Elf? I've totally fallen for Lord Celeborn - Galadriel's husband!

    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?
    The Dark side has cooler light sabers! The one I want is the double-bladed red one that Darth Maul had.

    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?
    'The life & times of an underachiever'. I think the title is pretty self-explanatory (Oooh, I think I have a book by that name too).

    27. What would your dream-house look like?
    It would be up in a tree with Celeborn waiting at the door for me (Hey, that rhymed! **patting herself on the back**)

    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?
    BARTI....hands down! My brother from another mother!

    29. What kind of books do you prefer?
    The ones with a lot of blood & gore, I suppose. Not a great choice for an Arc-in-training but, hey, what are you going to do about it?

    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?
    Falling from a great height **shudders & rushes off to her next flying lesson**

    That just helped me sort one of my newest MC's personality traits, so thanks!

    1. What is your name, and is there any thought/meaning behind it?

    Shaun Gardener, cashier and stock clerk at Meg-A-Mart Super Center. As for the name, it's somethng my parents gave me that no one can take from me and I'm proud to be a Shaun.

    2. What is your favourite animal and why?

    Penguins. They set an example for all couples, human and animal and they have extraordinary patience and endurance.

    3. Who is your favourite historical person?

    Whoever invented the indoor freezer. Don't know the name off the bat.

    4. What is the most prominent aspect of your personality?

    I guess it's the fact that if I care about you enough, I'll always put you first.

    5. What kind of clothing do you wear and why?

    The lightest clothing possible. I don't like heat and I wear minimal protection during the winter so as not to upset any of the uninitiated humans I interact with. I also prefer muted colors. It doesn't have to be all black, but I prefer earth tones.

    6. What historical period is your favourite? Why?

    The 80's. It was such a great turning point for music and entertainment. The birth of MTV, ET came out that year and the last movie of the original Holy Trilogy hit the screens.

    It was also the last decade where a kid could become a star on her own and actually have it mean something. That's my opinion anyway.



    7. Who is your favourite fictional character?

    That's a tricky one. But if I have to pick one character out of the entire fictional universe, it would have to be Smurfette. She's the only female smurf in the entire smurf villege, but she doesn't flaunt it. She respects herself and respects others.
    What? I like the Smurfs.


    8. Have you ever committed a crime?

    No. And just because I am a vampire doesn't mean that I consider myself above human laws. I suppose until a Charlaine Harris-style "coming out of the coffin" takes place, I may have committed what could be construed as fraud or identity theft, depending on how you look at it. That doesn't mean I brag about it. But my survival depends on not coming forth about it either.

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?

    On and off. But I don't dwell on it.

    10. What is your greatest flaw?

    It's really hard for me to nail this one. Maybe it's that I choose to ignore the signals, even if I should be paying attention to them. Because frankly it's more convenient to pretend they just aren't there and get on with my life. This pretains to any situation, whether it turns out in my favor or winds up costing me in the long run.

    11. Do you like yourself (despite eventual flaws mentioned above)?

    I can't imagine hating myself over something that I have every right to change. I just find it more comfortable to go with the flow.

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?

    The biggest drawback of being a vampire is that our plumming goes completely haywire when the metamorphosis (puberty for us) kicks in. A system that could handle steak and burgers and Wheaties is now more suited to blood. And we can still eat the other stuff, but once again, the plumming tends to act up at embarrassing times.

    If I could keep all the cool aspects of being a vampire without having to worry about where the bathroom is...well, there you go.


    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?

    I'd call myself The Green Muffin, just for the heck of it. And my natural abilities as a vampire, (IE, speed, leaping, heightened sense of smell and hearing, night vision and the ability to watch Twilight without vomiting) are fairly sufficient as "powers".

    14. Do you have any pets?

    I have a coworker who I sometimes have to clean up after. Does that count?

    15. Are you vain?

    Not so vain that I think the song is about me.

    16. What colour is your hair and in what manner do you wear it?

    Light brown. And generally I like to keep it shoulder length as I'm a sixties baby and the ladies love it.

    17. Do you have any titles?

    Only in D&D games.

    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?

    Stephanie Meyer. I don't think I need to elaborate here.

    19. What is your favourite colour? Why?

    Ocean blue. It's very relaxing.

    20. Have you ever been close to death?

    Yeah, but do you need another vampire's life story, or do you have enough holes in your head?

    21. Have you ever killed someone?

    Yes. See response to #20.

    22. What do you fear?

    Fear itself. And payday. I hate seeing how much the government takes from me.

    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?

    Hungry. Where's the food. Eat it and eliminate it. Pretty my usual routine only now I'm a gigantic insect.

    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?

    I'm still a vampire and I'm probably on the left of the middle half of Middle Earth.

    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?

    I suppose it's a tad ironic. I hate bright light, but I'm not as big of an asshole as Emperor Palpatine. Then again, look how quickly the Jedi Council got decimated because of a little lack of planning. It's a sad state of affairs when kids now a days know how to evacuate from their homes in the event of a fire, but the "Younglings" hide in the council chamber when all hell breaks loose in the Jedi temple.

    Er...yeah, the light side.


    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?

    It'd kind of be like Rent in the beginning, only it's about my life working in a retail environment. Then it becomes Rocky Horror Picture Show during the second act and peters out to Repo: The Genetic Opera.


    27. What would your dream-house look like?

    Bedroom is in the basement, naturally, protected by a security system. A library/entertainment system that rivals the Library of Alexandria in size and content would take up most of the ground floor. Try to imagine the ancient Greek library if video games and movies were involved and you'd get the gist of it.

    Lots of spacious rooms because we don't like to be cramped. And ideally it would be in a secluded area, maybe in a mountain by a ravine.



    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?

    Handy Smurf. Cause he's easy to feed and damned if I'm going to hire a contractor to build and maintain my dream house.

    29. What kind of books do you prefer?

    I read everything, really. Books, magazines, newspapers, I'll read them all.

    My favorite book of late is The Time Traveler's Wife.

    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?

    The way I was born. Headfirst, naked and screaming.

    Have you never committed a crime?

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?

    I am who I am. It's not for me to like or dislike myself.

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?
    No.

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?
    I don't need a nickname or superpowers to save the world from itself.

    Of course not. Don't be ridiculous.

    *laughs* Not yet.

    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?
    Oh, everyone is here for a reason. Who am I to change what has already happened?

    19. What is your favourite colour? Why?
    Black. It heralds the coming darkness.

    20. Have you ever been close to death?
    Every day of my life. Occupational hazard.

    21. Have you ever killed someone?
    A few hundred. But who's counting, really?

    22. What do you fear?
    There is nothing to fear except fear itself.

    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?
    That's a ridiculous question. Don't waste my time.

    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?
    Who what? The winning side, of course.

    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?
    Darkness suits me.

    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?
    I don't sing.

    27. What would your dream-house look like?
    A great castle, carved from onyx and set high above the rest of the lands. That'd be a nice start.

    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?
    No more questions on make-believe.

    29. What kind of books do you prefer?
    The ones that tell me how to win every time.

    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?
    I don't plan to.

    The 90's. ****in' Nirvana, man.

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?

Killed them out of anger and because I was suffering from withdrawal symptoms. Another of my codes? Never let things get personal.

    Marcy (my wife) dying.
    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?

    Elf. I'd be on the side of the Fellowship. Mainly cause everyone on Sauron's side looks like they just woke up hungover after a massive orgy in a pit of fire and barbecue sauce.
    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?
    Dark side. I've always dreamed of those lightning hand things.
    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?
    The Test. It's a musical about a man trying to prevent his wife from seeing that she is pregnant. Because she's not pregnant. The pregnancy test she found in the trash was not hers. It was another lady's. Hilarity ensues.
    27. What would your dream-house look like?
    The White House.
    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?
    Probably the Church Lady from SNL. I'd love for her to follow me around and judge everything and everybody.
    29. What kind of books do you prefer?
    The kind that are not in my hands.
    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?
    Hopefully, by old age, holding my beautiful wife in my arms as I pass. realistically? Probably I'll get shot, get blown up in some massive explosion, or I'll overdose and be found in a pile of cocaine ala Scarface.

    When I first started training with my master I thought that I could face but it ended up being a humiliating fight, for me anyways.

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?

    15. Are you vain?

    Maybe just a little.

    There are no "fictional characters" where I come from.

    1. What is your name, and is there any thought/meaning behind it?
    Daius is my given name, meaning a ‘noble’ man; it’s supposed to pattern like that of my twin sister, Daia, which means ‘noble’ woman. My surname is Leior, meaning origin, or beginning; the noble house of Leior is one of the oldest and most powerful in the Empire.

    2. What is your favourite animal and why?

    The double-headed eagle, most obviously: symbol of the Empire, and the great symbol of romance and twin-ship, namely my beloved sister and I.

    3. Who is your favourite historical person?

    I have always found the story of the twins Aidos and Aida, the progenitors of the Empire, most interesting. I blatantly lie when I say that I find eerie similarities between those two and my sister and I.

    4. What is the most prominent aspect of your personality?

    I am fatherly; otherwise, a father to my friends, so they mock me. If anything, I would always be so, for many of them are orphans, even if their parents still live.

    5. What kind of clothing do you wear and why?

    Generally a good suit or a military uniform, my inheritance from my father, who inherited it from his father before him, and so on and so on ad infinitum. No, I kid; this here is only from my grandfather. I would not wear chain mail. I have a peculiar interest in monocles, I admit.

    6. What historical period is your favourite? Why?

    Just a little before the era of the Three Empires. This was the age when men seemed most idealistic, when the possibilities of progress and human evolution seemed to be possible, when true enlightenment in all fields seemed likely. I also have great interest in the centuries before the Great Wars, when the Empire was not yet a monster of international politics, when the world was still peaceful and idyllic. Or so I wish.

    7. Who is your favourite fictional character?

    The aptly named Daius Holos, from the great classic of the writer Un Kaphis, Lettuce, Chickens, and Salad. The schoolboy is a charming one, silent but effective in argument, kind but firm in personality, and never wavering in his principles and morals. He also beds the prettiest female character.

    8. Have you ever committed a crime?

    De jure? No. De facto? Well, let me ask you this: are there any leaders – even the most just and most moral and most outstanding – of any nations who do not, on a daily basis, commit crimes?

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?

    Myself, obviously; I compare little to my late brother and his potential, and I know that I am powerless to stop the overwhelming tide of history that will engulf our nation. I find it amusing that the leaders of nations never lose sleep; of course, I might be an exception.

    10. What is your greatest flaw?

    Flaws? I have none that cannot be found. But if you ask for a straight answer: the blame must be mine, and mine alone (or, well, maybe my sister’s or my father’s), unless if it concerns the moral doings of others. The gods conspire against me, I deem, to test the resolve of my sister and I.

    11. Do you like yourself (despite eventual flaws mentioned above)?

    If I did not, I would not be here.

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?

    Make myself a little less taller (so long as the same happens to my sister). Or, perhaps, give me a bit more openness to women; I must place upon myself a fatherly role to entertain my female friends, unfortunately, and I am not sure of its ultimate use.

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?

    I will not engage in such laughable thoughts. There are more entertaining fantasies than such. Furthermore, I do not need great powers to achieve things; I have my own abilities and my beloved sister to pull me forward and my flaws and my enemies to pull me backwards – that is more than enough.

    14. Do you have any pets?

    I am not sure whether my mounted steed would count as a pet… Do idiotic friends count?

    15. Are you vain?

    I am as vain as you want me to be.

    16. What colour is your hair and in what manner do you wear it?

    Black, midnight black, raven black, coal black, whatever black you prefer. It is straight, well-trimmed, and combed gently to my left. I also keep it as handsome as needed, though it is not necessary to retain my spectacular looks.

    17. Do you have any titles?

    Many. A portion of my abbreviated official title: Prince Daius Leior, Heir Apparent to the Empire of the Aidisese and Aidis and its various Archduchies and Duches and its Colonies of Jemis, Nun Devos, Tuzeis, Constans, and Portus, Heir to the Imperial Purpled Throne of the Aidisese Confederation, Protector of the Golden Sword of Daius the Godly, Archduke of Don Xoméis, Count of Stonis and Nimóis, Grand Minister of the Ministry of Inter-relations between the Foreign and Domestic Departments, Honorary Member of the Supreme Military Council of Aidis, and so on and so on… Most of it is useless fluff, if you ask me.

    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?

    Deleting a person and a whole range of historical events will result in neither a better nor worse world; men are as all men are, and the karma [the term my MC would use isn’t karma, but it’s the closest equivalent that I could think of] of all things will result in similar things.

    19. What is your favourite colour? Why?

    Purple. It is the color of the Empire, most noble and serene.

    20. Have you ever been close to death?

    Considering the fact that all members of the imperial family have been slowly killed off for the last few decades or so, and considering the fact that I am the heir to the largest and most powerful empire in the world, I would say that death is always close. I have witnessed many assassination attempts on me, my sister, and my father. The successful one killed my late brother.

    21. Have you ever killed someone?

    Indirectly, almost certainly. Directly, I briefly took part in a battle alongside my sister and uncle at the age of thirteen, and I believe I did inflict a few casualties.

    22. What do you fear?

    Losing my sister; for anything terrible to happen to her.

    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?

    That does not reduce my legitimacy in a de jure sense, and I do not believe any Aidiese could care less. Leaders are leaders if they prove themselves well, not because of their physical appearances.

    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?

    Gondor? Rohan? The elves? The side of good is fine and dandy enough; any will do; a pragmatist knows that he can do much so long as he has the basics.

    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?

    Light, though I say that with hesitation. My fear for my sister’s safety will get the better of me, I am sure.

    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?

    If I would take part in a theatrical… of course, none other than the story of Aidos and Aida. I, playing Aidos, and my sister, playing Aida. It is perfect.

    27. What would your dream-house look like?

    I know what the houses of the upper-class and the middle-class look like. I am glad to say that my frequent house is of upper-middle-class design: comfortable and luxurious enough, but humble and austere enough to allow me to do my life’s work.

    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?

    There are too many wonderful personalities to choose from, really.

    29. What kind of books do you prefer?

    The kind that my sister prefers.

    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?

    Assassination, most likely, or in battle. I think there is a slight chance I might live to old age, but that depends on my luck and quality of rule once I come to the throne.

    Answering as my Character Dahlia :)

    1. What is your name, and is there any thought/meaning behind it?
    Dahlia, it's a flower that has many petals, kind of like how I have many "layers"
    2. What is your favourite animal and why?
    Dogs, they're loyal and they will always love you especially if you love them and take care of them as much as they take care of you. They can sense moods and they won't lie to you
    3. Who is your favourite historical person?
    Cassandra, when so many didn't believe her, she still tried. She was a brilliant woman if a little crazy
    4. What is the most prominent aspect of your personality?
    Trust I guess, I trust easily. I've never really came across someone that's ruined my trust before so... I guess it kind of stuck with me to trust people I care about
    5. What kind of clothing do you wear and why?
    Armour. It's the last thing I have of my family and I'm constantly battling something or someone so I guess wearing a lot of armour is good. It's kind of my protection in a literal and metaphoric sense I guess.
    6. What historical period is your favourite? Why?
    This one I'm living now. We have Dragons and magic and although there's a lot of fighting happening, it's still pretty cool!
    7. Who is your favourite fictional character?
    Mum used to tell me a story about a princess that was sent to live with a beast to pay back debts or save her father or something, and she saw his true beauty and fell in love with him, it's sweet, none of that 'he was handsome and rich so I fell in love with him' she just fell in love with him for who he was. I want that. [COLOR]
    8. Have you ever committed a crime?
    I killed men because they murdered my family. I find that although I broke a legal law, I did it to not break a moral one.

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?
    I regret not telling my parents I loved them the night they died. Silly, I know. Because they know I love them...still...sometimes I wish I could see them one more time.
    10. What is your greatest flaw?
    I trust to easily, I trusted a criminal with my money! That didn't go so well...but I learnt after that to leave the money with either Micah or Acacia
    11. Do you like yourself (despite eventual flaws mentioned above)?
    Yes, how can you love someone if you can't love yourself and your own flaws? You just have to accept that no one is perfect, but try your hardest to always be your best and hope that you find someone like that.
    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?
    I would change my red hair. I love it but with all the superstition around it...I just wish it was more normal so I could really be myself and not have to hide something so people don't instantly judge me.
    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?
    Hahaha, umm.... I would love the power of invisibility and my nickname? Um... flower girl I guess hahaha, I'm not very original as you can see.
    14. Do you have any pets?
    A few years ago I owned a dog named Onyx, but he died from a snake bite, so no, not any more.
    15. Are you vain?
    Sometimes I think I am, I try not to be, but...sometimes I guess it's ok to be a little vain otherwise we would all just roll around in filth and be like 'psh, yeah I don't care that I smell like sickness'.
    16. What colour is your hair and in what manner do you wear it?
    Red, but I either have it hidden underneath a wig or some material and have soot rubbed into it to hide the colour. I'd like to just wear it out though.
    17. Do you have any titles?
    "M'lady" I stopped 'Princess' after I met Princess Cerise, she was a real princess...
    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?
    The man that killed my brother, I don't now where or who he is, but if I ever find out I will strike vengeance for killing my brother and breaking my parents because of that.
    19. What is your favourite colour? Why?
    Blue. It's the colour of the sky and the ocean and it's just such a beautiful colour you know?
    20. Have you ever been close to death?
    When I was a little girl I was very sick, but not lately, no.
    21. Have you ever killed someone?
    Yes. I don't regret it either. They killed my family.
    22. What do you fear?
    Losing people. People seem to be leaving me more and more lately, and I"m scared to lose my friends.
    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?
    That would be really fun, I'd think 'what in the world?' I guess but I'd probably go and have fun with it. Who knows, maybe I could fly around the world and discover new things.
    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?
    I think it'd be really cool to be an elf, I'd be good though.
    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?
    Light, to hurt someone who doesn't deserve it would destroy me. I guess that would be my fatal flaw as a superhero hahaha.
    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?
    Ah... Save the Hero, about a girl who falls in love with a hero and and ends up saving him.
    27. What would your dream-house look like?
    Small hahaha, just enough for a moderate sized family, but with a large garden.
    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?
    29. What kind of books do you prefer?
    Adventure, with a girl that saves people and does good.
    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?
    Trying to save someone. Or an illness.

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?

    1. What is your name, and is there any thought/meaning behind it?

    My name is Roman. They were these dudes who lived in Italy way back, tore ass through Europe, Asia, and Africa, conquered and pillaged and raped and burned, and then collapsed in a frenzy of hedonism and decadence. I'm really hoping my parents weren't being metaphorical.

    2. What is your favourite animal and why?

    Honey badger, because it reminds me of my best friend Jaffy.

    3. Who is your favourite historical person?

    I've always admired Winston Churchill. Like me, he was a fat, womanizing, drunk, and he managed to be a total badass at the same time.

    4. What is the most prominent aspect of your personality?

    My nebbishy charm? My propensity to blow any problem out of proportion?

    5. What kind of clothing do you wear and why?

    I like my greatcoat, because I think it makes me look badass when it billows mysteriously behind me. Otherwise, I wear a photographer's vest with lots of pockets.

    6. What historical period is your favourite? Why?

    Life has always been nasty, brutish, and short. If I had to choose, I guess I'd like to live in the early to mid 1950s. People were so hopeful about the future back then, sure that scientific progress would soon lead to a Utopia with colonies on the moon and robot slaves.

    7. Who is your favourite fictional character?

    Sam Vimes. He seems as cynical as I feel, and he seems to be forced to save the world almost as often as I am.

    8. Have you ever committed a crime?

    Hard to hang out with Jaffy and not commit crimes. Sigh. Never been caught, though, so that's something.

    9. Have you ever done something you regret and/or embarrass you?

    See my comment above re: being around Jaffy. I swear, I think he messes with people for the sheer joy of it.

    10. What is your greatest flaw?

    I think it's a tie between my personality and my looks.

    11. Do you like yourself (despite eventual flaws mentioned above)?

    Meh. I'm better than some other folks I could mention, although, to be fair, most of those people are either demons or the evil denizens of alternate dimensions hell bent on cross dimensional domination, so, you know. Low bar.

    12. If you could change anything about yourself (physically or mentally) - would you?

    I'd be about two inches taller.

    13. If you were suddenly to become a superhero/villain, what would you nickname yourself and what would be your power(s)?

    Wonder Woman. Push up bra. I'm sorry, what was the question again?

    14. Do you have any pets?

    Sometimes, I think Jaffy keeps me around as his pet.

    15. Are you vain?

    I do think my hair is kind of cool.

    16. What colour is your hair and in what manner do you wear it?

    Glad you asked. Well, it's black, and I have kind of a modified Ceasar (a style last popular about a decade ago). It's short on top and on the sides, and longer in the front, swept back and to the left. It's tousled but studiously so. I'm going for kind of a "I just tumbled out of bed, and yes, my hair looks this amazing without any kind of attention being paid to it" kind of look, which is harder than you'd think to pull off.

    I also have a short, trimmed beard.

    17. Do you have any titles?

    Yes. On several worlds and a handful of alternate universes, I'm known as "He's Getting Away! After Him, You Fools!" the Second.

    18. If you could delete any person and his/her doings out of history, whom would be the unlucky one?

    Just one? Ha, ha, just kidding. I know as well as anyone that deleting a single person from history changes everything for the worse. We are living in the best of all possible worlds, dammit.

    19. What is your favourite colour? Why?

    I like black, because dirt doesn't show.

    20. Have you ever been close to death?

    Yes, I call that "Tuesday". These days, it takes a dimension-blasting doomsday device to get a rise out of me.

    21. Have you ever killed someone?

    I've erased more than one alternate reality from existence, although Jaffy and I are still debating if that constitutes "killing".

    22. What do you fear?

    Everything, to a greater or lesser extent.

    23. One morning, you wake up only to discover you've been transformed into a gigantic insect! What do you feel, think, and do?

    EAT! MATE! HIBERNATE! DIE!

    24. You live in Tolkien's Middle-Earth. What kind of species are you and whose side are you on?

    I'm a hobbit accountant. I prepare everyone's tax returns and explain you can't expense a long epic myth-making history spanning journey because you threw away the damn ring, and didn't get a receipt, Frodo.

    25. You live in the STAR WARS universe! Do you prefer the dark or the light side of the force?

    Which side gets me Slave Leia in a metal bikini?

    26. You are singing the lead of a musical. What is the name of the musical and what is it about?

    Why Does This Bull**** Keep Happening To Me? Featuring the hit songs Which God Did I Piss Off To Be Dragged Into This ****ing **** Over And Over Again?
    I'm No Hero!
    Jaffy, Get That Out Of Your Mouth, You Don't Know Where It's Been.

    and
    Oh, ****, I'm Being Chased By Heavily Armed Alien Assholes Again, What The **** Kind Of Bull**** Military Actually Allows Guard To Shoot First And Ask Questions Later, There Must Be Things You'd Like Your Interrogators To Learn, Isn't There?

    27. What would your dream-house look like?

    Heavily fortified.

    28. If you could make -one- fictional character become real, who would you choose?

    Any fictional hero-adventurer, so I could send him out to do battle with the forces of evil while I stay home and read.

    29. What kind of books do you prefer?

    Ones that don't cause me to become insane.

    30. Lastly; How do you think you will die?

    Screaming.

    Be advised, Roman (and his friend Jaffy) are works in progress. I really think these questions are helping me get a handle on him. They are making me realize I have ripped off Rincewind the Wizzard from Terry Pratchett.

    Back to the drawing board.
