Grace Benham


1) Name: Edmund or Elliot


2) Age: late teens

My characters age throughout the story, starting at 14 and going to 18. I usually think of them in the 15-16 range since that’s about average XD

3) Career/Role in Story: Protagonist or protag’s best friend

Hes an important side character, and one of the protagonist’s best friends.  Also her love interest eventually.

4) Personality: He’s a kindhearted soul. Naturally friendly and sweet.

Pretty much it.  He’s a little bit quiet but is super hilarious at unexpected times and is always very welcoming.

5) Would you be friends with that character?: Yes he seems nice.

Me toooo

6) Any other details you may have gotten from the picture: He’s wearing formalish attire from either a private school or a wealthier family. Or both. Also, he’s reminding me of golden retriever… though those eyes have a piercing quality to them… crystal blue like a husky’s… possibly he has an adventurous spirit.

Actually, the clothes have really nothing to do with the story, it was just the only picture I could find.  He does go to this special school that’s kind of the main part of the story where all the main characters go. Wow yeah he does look like a goldie in this picture! XD

7) What would this character’s nickname be? Unsure, but someone at least refers to him jokingly as their ‘Prince Charming’

I might use that!  I guess technically his nickname would be Will since his actual name is William, but he basically just goes by Will anyway.

8) Character’s greatest strength: He’s great with animals and kids. They flock to him.

I haven’t really thought about animals, but he is really good with kids and he’s a great teacher too.

9) Character’s fatal flaw: He has a hard time letting go of things.

Maybe…I’ll have to think about that one.

10) Phrase that this character is likely to say: No specific phrase, but I feel he has a soft voice and laughs easily.


11) Character’s favorite color(s): I’m torn between a soft blue or bright scarlet.

I think navy blue, so you got close!

12) Characters family status (parents alive? any siblings or other close family members?): His parents are alive, and he’s the baby of the family with many protective older siblings.

Yeah, his parents are alive but the sibling lineup is actually the opposite of what you said! XD He’s the protective older brother of three younger sisters.

13) Single or taken?: Single. But many have crushes on him and he’s completely oblivious.

Single but later taken by the protagonist.  And yeah, I’m pretty sure a lot of the other students at the Academy think he’s cute.

14) Characters children (if any?): None


15) Characters hobbies: He’s very athletic and likes to climb. He likes sketching and reading books.

Definitely becomes athletic while attending the Academy if he wasn’t already.  Ooohh I might add the climbing and sketching parts in!

16) Greatest fear: He’s afraid of the dark and what his imagination creates within it.

I think he’s afraid of failing.  He’s very responsible and has always been the model child, so he’s afraid of messing up.

17) Dreams and Aspirations: He’s a bit of a romantic and longs for adventure. He wants to explore the unknown.

Definitely wants too explore; not sure about the romantic part XD

18) Darkest Secret: He doesn’t have any yet.


19) Peculiarities: He’s often found in hard to reach places curled up with a sketchbook or a novel. These spots are never where you expect to find him.

Good ideas!  He runs his hand through his hair just by habit a lot.  He also loves airplanes and wants to be a pilot.

No idea if any of this is right, and I don’t why my mind slowly transformed him into a disney-esque royal, but it happened.

You got really close on a lot of them!      That’s understandable haha

This is perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take: to be seen as we truly are.
