Heh heh, time to develop your characters’ devious sides! 😀 Write an explanation for what your character was arrested for and why they did it. Feel free to have your characters arrested multiple times, if you wish! 😉 I’m sure I’ll do that. . .
To start off, here are a few of mine:
Grace: Arrested for murder; did it because someone took bullying her friends a step too far.
Kiet: Arrested for assault; did it for the same reason Grace committed her crime.
Tai: Arrested for stealing one of those tiny paper calendars. Did it because he literally only wanted to hear his rights read to him. Just. Once.

@naiya-dyani Hahaha, this is great. 😆
Zeb & Charlie – arrested for disturbing the peace. and for lying on government forms.December 12, 2019 at 3:37 pm #102601
@evelyn Heh, they sound fun! 😛 A bit Podo Helmer-ish.

@naiya-dyani Haha yeah kinda does, doesn’t it! I’m quite curious about Tai though. Sounds like a really fun character! 😀December 12, 2019 at 3:42 pm #102603
@evelyn Hee hee, I love Tai. I think of him as my not-quite comic relief character. Like, he’s the prankster/joker, but he’s an actual three-dimensional (I hope) person, ya know? I had fun developing backstory for him 😀 .

Oooooo this sounds fun!!
Cadenza: Arrested for starting a war between her tribes… over herself. Excuse: “They all wanted to see me dance and kept on giving all those compliments… it’s not MY fault they started fighting over me!”
Barbinas: Arrested for murder of his brother. Excuse: “Edwin had it coming, the jerk. Dad’s next.”
Elissa: Arrested for identity fraud. Excuse: “So I changed my name to Elissa… I am NOT being known as Faiza anymore!!!”
<i>Dragon Slayer…</i> (huh… most of the characters get arrested in this anyway so…….)

Kalaraja: Arrested for kidnapping and murder. And devouring of human beings. And we don’t actually dare try to arrest the dragon so… resisting arrest!

@banana-peacock-warrior Your characters have a penchant for thievery! 😛
And Jarhed. . . man, I relate to you so much. . . XD I spent a lot of time by myself in the house today and my cat got pretty sick of my voice fairly quickly. . .

This is a cool idea!!!
Alixa: arrested for insulting the Aggrava nonpareil members (the most powerful dragon masters)
Walli: arrested for being an accomplice (except that he wasn’t)
Drayden: arrested for assisting the Omega group
Merlye: arrested for destroying the golden islands without regret
Lyndira: would never do anything to get arrested
Ajeris: arrested for stealing
Kyrei: arrested for stealing, possible murder, and getting everyone else out of jail
Mindysa: arrested for assault
Elysso: arrested for murder
Zarin: arrested for something completely ridiculous
Shayne: is the one to arrest everyone
Xineta, Jarvyn, Contessa, Kayti, Wes, Callia, and Hyri were also probably arrested for being accomplices.
Sorry, there’s a lot of them
I wonder what I was thinking whenever I re-read my old, well-loved storiesDecember 12, 2019 at 6:25 pm #102612Veraza Winterknight@kari-karast
Eina: Arrested for a very long list of crimes of which most mean slightly varied versions of the same thing. She would like me to tell you that technically they’re only crimes because the Collective says they are. She would also like me to tell you that the homicide casualties shouldn’t have tried attacking her.
Zane: Arrested for theft, forgery, falsifying official records, falsifying personal information, identity theft, treason, sabotage, assault, and resisting arrest. He would like me to inform you that it’s not his fault that spying on the government has so many different ways to be defined.
Keldan: Would do the arresting.
Talia: Arrested on false pretenses because she was “snooping” and generally being very unhelpful to criminals.
Zerach: Arrested for continuing to use his aura after being banished from the Order of Mages, and continuing research on magic. And also for resisting arrest.
Wisteria: Arrested for *comment classified as contains spoilers*December 12, 2019 at 6:29 pm #102613
@esmeralda-gramilton Heh, I have a Lyndira character! XD I mean, technically he was in my list up there (
and may or may not have been arrested on false charges in my book), but ya know, he has that heart 😉 .
Are your characters from the same WIP? It sounds like a full-on epic! 🙂

Ooh… Me like.
Kirat: Arrested for literally everything he does. (being Kirat)
Jin: Arrested for running away from home.
Rhioe: Being a *spoiler*
Aarin: Underage room renting, sibling abuse.
Yanuri: being an all-knowing healer woman.
Kirat: Spoiling the story.
XD I know I put Kirat on there twice XD. He’s just that good. (bad?) He gets arrested multiple times.

@naiya-dyani Ehahhahahaha this is awesome!! Problem is… None of my characters have ever been arrested XD So I’ll make up things that they would probably BE arrested for.
Gwendolyn: Uhm… Probably the illegal use of some medicinal herb. Her excuse would be: “They were dying!! I had to use the herb! That’s the only medicine that would have worked!!”
Werrley: Ok so actually his whole family is being accused of kidnapping. Now, he is an owl. His family is owls. Normal-sized owls. But hey. The people of this particular city are WAAAAYYY superstitious, and they have always seen owls as demon-like. So they have a reason for suspecting the owls. But yeah. If just Werrley was to be arrested for something, it would be something like stealing (and then eating) somebody’s scones. He loves scones, and is always hungry, so that would be his excuse.
Dane: He’s actually probably been arrested several times already, before this story takes place. Not sure. But it was probably something like odd behavior, being creepy in general, etc. He’s a good guy, but his ability to converse with, and move, trees and things is creepy at times XD
The innkeeper: Probably cheating his customers out of money. He’s a nice guy but, like most innkeepers, the temptation is too strong sometimes to add a few pence more to the cost of your meal.
The Riders (for lack of better name at the moment): Anything and everything. They’re bad guys, so…
Rupert Brodie: Stealing, catcalling, cheating, gambling, drinking, etc. He’s the leader of a bandit gang.
Stilton: Playing his lute after curfew, probably. That, or somebody stupid decided to have him arrested because said stupid person walked through Stilton’s needle-roses. (Which are exactly what they sound like; rose bushes but the thorns are INCREDIBLY needle-like)
Who else… Uhm… I think that’s essentially everybody worth mentioning from this story. *nods*

@kari-karast After reading all yours, I know really want to read your story XD It sounds awesome!!! (And I’m not joking lol. I actually would love to read it if you’d like me to 😀 )
“Enough! Be quiet! I can’t hear myself think! I can’t hear my teeth chatter!"December 12, 2019 at 9:28 pm #102619
@kari-karast Yeah. . . they should have known better than to cross Eina. XD Gerik is still complaining about the bruises he got last time.
@urwen-starial 😂 I’ll be honest, I’ve been looking forward to seeing Kirat’s, because he’s just. . . such an arrestable character, you know? Sorry, Kirat, but it’s true. . .
Grace: Don’t be sorry. You’re just stating facts.
Rhioe’s makes me irritatingly curious. Have you written any more?? Add 👏 to 👏 the 👏 Google 👏 doc!
(Please 😉 )

@anne_the_noob14 I get the feeling Rupert Brodie is not someone I would want to meet. XP
And hey, I made up the arrests for my characters, too. It’s just stuff they would probably end up getting arrested for, if they were to be arrested.
Although Kiet and Gerik actually were both arrested during the story. But will I tell you what for? No. No I will not. 😉
