2) Age: Late teens or early twenties

3) Career/Role in Story: Helpful side character, he’s some sort of body guard

5) Would you be friends with that character?: Unless he’s secretly evil, I think I would.


6) Any other details you may have gotten from the picture: not too many, so when in doubt, start comparing people to wildlife. Something about him screams eagle or hawk to me.


7) What would this character’s nickname be? Why?: Mr. Grumps. Idk, he just looks a lil grumpy.


8) Character’s greatest strength: He’s dedicated to his job and is loyal. He gives nice hugs.

13) Single or taken?: Single, he doesn’t have time for relationships.

14) Characters children (if any?): No, but kids do think he’s cool.

15) Characters hobbies: He’s an expert with a blade. He doesn’t really have time for anything outside of his job, but he’s become very good at people watching.

16) Greatest fear: Not being of worth or value to anyone. Failing in a horrific, tragic way.

17) Dreams and Aspirations: On the outside, he states they aren’t worth his time. On the inside he envies those who are a bit more carefree, and wishes he could explore the world with someone by his side.

18) Darkest Secret: As a bodyguard, one often overhears things they wouldn’t dare repeat, but instead mold on one’s conscience for decades.

19) Peculiarities: He attracts cats. They love him for some reason. He can’t figure out why.


I don’t think I’m right with any of these, but it was fun.
