I had an idea for a character development exercise that might be fun/helpful.
How it works:
Answer the question below with the name of the character most likely to do/say the thing. (You can add an explanation, but it’s optional😉) Then you ask a question for the next person. (You can answer that question too if you’d like😉)
Which of your characters would be most likely to say “I don’t take orders, I barely take suggestions”?
Out of my characters, probably my MC, Liorah. She has definitely said this at some point. XD

Oh this is awesome!
I can seriously HEAR Nicolás saying that to someone! Lol.
Next question: Which of your characters would be most likely to say, “I’m so so so so sorry!”
Hmm, I don’t know which of my characters would.. maybe Carlos or Camilla. They both show a lot of compassion.

That’s easy–Anna’s brother, Radoslav. In fact, “I’m sorry” (without all the extra “so’s”) seems to be his favorite line. Used in the sense of an apology, rather than commiseration.
Who’s most likely to say “I miss you?”January 7, 2021 at 10:38 am #123538
Sadana, my MC’s sister. They don’t get to see each other often.
Who’s most likely to say “I like to have at least eight feet of personal space, normally.” ?
Probably Eabha. She’s just that kind of person. 😉

That would be Acyn! He’s not a touchy person, and it sounds exactly like something he would say!
Who’s most likely to dye their hair a crazy color?
Sahar! She’s the kind of person who would love blue hair.

Definitely Lauren! She dyed her hair purple, although I don’t think she’d be opposed to trying out different colors too (e.g. blue, pink).
Who’s most likely to injure themselves doing something unnecessarily dangerous?
I think out of my main characters, it would probably be Judah or Dante. Although, Frankie is another possibility.January 9, 2021 at 12:24 am #123590sparrowhawke@sparrowhawke
Enitan, probably. He’s pretty reckless, much to the annoyance of his protective sister and reserved brother.
Who’s most likely to write poetry?
I’ll go with Torsten. He’s quiet and reflective and loves storytelling.

My storywriter girl, Ella. I doubt she writes a lot of poetry, just a little when she’s feeling down.
Who’s the most likely to see animals as friends?
Probably Ella’s sister Kayla. She’s a dog person.😄
@rose-colored-fancy this is a really good idea!

this is a really good idea!
Definitely Liorah and Gavril! They both have conversations with their horses.
Who’s most likely to forget to eat/sleep while working on something they find interesting? (I mean under normal circumstances, emergencies excluded)
Acyn! He’s the kind of person who forgets to do anything else when he gets interested in something.

Seia definitely. She gets obsessed with anything that’s boring for other people.
Who’s most likely to “kill” you over a bad cup of coffee?

Hmmm, I would say my main character Penny. If she’s in a bad mood, she has a hard time controlling her temper and just rages a lot XD
Which of your characters would be most likely to lie to get out of an invitation to an event?
I would say my supremely introverted character Danny. He is very much a loner and only enjoys the company of a few people.
@rose-colored-fancy This is such a fun idea!! 😀

Ooh, that’s so Acyn! When he has to attend a party, he brings a book, finds the quietest corner, and ignores everyone. He likes people, but only when he chooses to. And not in large groups.
Which character is most likely to say: “Pardon my lack of excitement, but I’m not entirely thrilled.”?
Ziyad, definitely. I can literally hear him saying that!

Probably Eabha. She’s the sarcastic one. 😉
Who’s the most likely to make a Pinterest board for every idea that popped into their head? (if they lived on Earth)

I think I’d have to go with Lauren again. 🙂 She’s very creative.
Who’s the most likely to know how to sew stitches?
Jordan. She has a lot of medical skills.January 14, 2021 at 1:14 pm #123815Arindown (Gracie)@arindown
I feel like I have several characters that know how, but Kyerin would probably be the best at it. He’d also try to be kind to his patient.
Who’s the most likely to own a cat?
Kayla. She may be a dog person, but I feel like she could fall for a kitten too.
