    @rose-colored-fancy

    Wowww you actually surprised me with these guesses. Some of them were really close.

    Name: Pia. It doesn’t have a Y, unfortunately.

    Age: she’s eighteen, you were pretty right on that one.

    Career, role in story: She appears in several stories, a Princess in the Thabian Empire, and she is both an antagonist and protagonist. To most people she is mean and bitter, but those are walls she keeps up, for when she’s alone or with her brother, she falls apart and cries. She is better than any of the guys in her classes when it comes to swordsmanship, and a warrior would be a good definition of her. But she’s still a princess and can do beautiful art. She hates her father because he hates her, often they argue. Her best friend is her twin brother, the Crown Prince, and they continually prank each other, as well as he’s always there for her when she needs it.

    Personality: tough and closed off, yes. Her soft side is hidden behind the walls she puts up, and she is quite determined and straightforward. She’s also lonely, and depressed. Callused. Fierce. Strong only to a certain point, don’t push her buttons.

    Would you be friends with that character?: She tries her best to intimidate, and would be loyal to you if you were loyal in return.

    Any other details you may have gotten from the picture: She is very athletic, you will find her normally with the guys at her school, instead of the girls. Anything that’s normally just for guys she joins in because she can, so any type of fighting, using different swords, she can do. And yea I loveeee her hair too. XD

    What??? An INFJ/P without trauma?? What black magic is this? XD

    No, really though, I agree with Gracie. The fact that we could get so much out of a picture shows what crazy skills you have. Faye seems like an awesome character. 🙂

    @emma-walker

    Ooh, I was close! I had so much fun doing that! I think she’s a fabulous character, she sounds so interesting! I love her family scenario, it sounds so intriguing!

     


    @lonathecat
    @arindown

    Aww, thank you guys so much! Faye is the literal definition of a cinnamon roll and I love her so much XD And I’m so glad my design works! I’ve been working on my character designs recently by completely changing some of them XD

    What??? An INFJ/P without trauma?? What black magic is this? XD

    LOL, IKR!? I’m actually an INFJ too, so that makes Faye a bit easier to write XD

    Okay, I’m trying yours, Lona!

    First of all, she’s gorgeous! What program did you use? ArtBreeder? I can tell she’s computer-generated XD Her earrings don’t match, computers get that wrong all the time XD

    Name: Annaliese? Adelia? (Why do I have such a thing for names that start with A?? Is my brain sorted in alphabetical order?XD) I think something either quite long or short and kind of unusual.

    Age: Mid to late teens. I think about sixteen?

    Career/role in the story: I think she’s a supporting character, maybe the MC’s best friend. Or maybe a love interest?

    Personality: I think she’s spunky but kind. She seems like she has a fun sense of humor, probably a bit sarcastic. I think she’s sweet once you get to know her, but a bit prickly at first. I think she’s the kind of person who can tell an absolutely hilarious joke while still keeping a straight face XD

    Would you be friends with that character?: Definitely! She looks like she’s a fun person to be around. I think you wouldn’t want to get on her wrong side though.

    Any other details you may have gotten from the picture: I think she’s quite outspoken, probably with a unique fashion taste. I think she’s more of a leader than a follower.

    Here’s my next character:

    "Stories are light. Light is precious in a world so dark." The Tale of Despereaux

    Ooh this looks great! Here’s mine, it’s just a headshot really because I’m terrible at drawing bodies. This is also my first ever attempt at a manga character so it’s a bit messy lol

    @rose-colored-fancy

    Mmmmm cinnamon rolls. *gives Faye virtual bear hug*  🙂

    LOL, IKR!? I’m actually an INFJ too, so that makes Faye a bit easier to write XD

    Lol same. I’m somewhere between INFP and INFJ, so I think a lot of my guesses for Faye were subconsciously based off of my own characteristics. Because, I mean, she’s got a flower crown and looks a little like she’s spacing out. I can resonate with that. XD

    What program did you use? ArtBreeder? I can tell she’s computer-generated XD Her earrings don’t match, computers get that wrong all the time XD

    Yep and yep lol. I gave up on trying to get her earrings and her age to work. She’s actually 21, but the generator either made her look 16 or 33. Since there wasn’t really an in-between, I went with 16. XD Anyways, aside from age, you pretty much nailed it lol.

    Name: Azryn (it is indeed, an unusual ‘A’ name)

    Age: 21

    Role: MC, also love interest of a different MC.

    Personality: Spunky, outspoken, analytical, dry humor, quite sarcastic, but still fun. Definitely, like you said, more of a leader than a follower.

    I don’t know how you got all of that out of just a computer generated face, but I am very happy with it. 🙂

    @rose-colored-fancy

    You know, I got the picture from Pinterest and in the description it seemed like it’s a picture of a male. But I’m using it for my female character. It’s a bit hard to tell though XD


    @arindown

    Wow, I can’t believe I was so close! Basically everything I wrote was how I would write a character based off that image–I have a tiny spark of an idea about old warriors being forced back into being warriors so I plopped a lot of that into the profile.

    @lonathecat

    Because, I mean, she’s got a flower crown and looks a little like she’s spacing out. I can resonate with that. XD

    LOL, me too XD She (And the next character) are actually part of a series I made of all my female characters with flowers. I tried to pick flowers that suited their personalities, and Faye just seems like a daisy person to me XD

     I gave up on trying to get her earrings and her age to work.

    It’s so weird that computers can’t do that. The other day my dad showed me a bunch of randomly computer-generated faces and you could usually pick them out by their earrings and glasses. It looks so amazing though! It’s so weird how close everyone keeps guessing XD

    I don’t know how you got all of that out of just a computer generated face, but I am very happy with it.

    Wild guessing with absolutely no system to it XD


    @sparrowhawke

    Okay! Here we go! I have no idea how close I am, most of these are wild guesses XD

    Name: I think something slightly more classic, maybe Amelie, or Clara?

    Age: Early twenties, around college age, I think?

    Career/role in the story: I’m guessing MC!

    Personality: She looks thoughtful and studious. I think she’s probably dreamy, but also quite analytical. She’s probably an introvert.

    Would you be friends with that character?: Totally! I think she’d be an awesome person to have deep conversations with.

    Any other details you may have gotten from the picture: I’m guessing she likes journals, writing poetry, might have a cat, and I feel like she’d like the dark academia aesthetic XD

    @sparrowhawke

    @rose-colored-fancy

    Yeah, you were kinda off. You actually described her brother pretty well though XD

    Name: Eden (So I guess kind of classic? I mean, that’s one of the oldest names there is)

    Age: 16-17 (I haven’t quite decided yet, and she might have a birthday during the story)

    Career/role in story: Yes, she’s the MC!

    Personality: She’s a bit of an ambivert, but now because of Story Problems, she’s getting more introverted. She’s athletic and a tad sarcastic. She’s actually pretty grounded and no-nonsense.

    She does have a cat (more like her brother has a cat) named Catiline Claudius Felix (since my family won’t let me name the family cat Catiline I’m naming my book cat that XD). Her aesthetic is actually minimal, natural, and bright — think lots of plants and golden sunlight streaming through the windows.


    @irishcelticredflowercrown

    I’ll do your character

    Name: Emily? Maylie? Mandie? Idk, something feminine, but a bit modern-sounding, if that makes sense

    Age: Teen, 14-15 (I’m leaning more toward 15)

    Career/Role: MC, and I’m thinking a superhero, or at least a character with special powers (fire, maybe?)

    Personality: Emotional, but determined and persevering. Cares for others. A bit of a dreamer and idealist. Melancholic personality type.

    Anything else: I have a feeling her hair color is significant. And she lives in a futuristic city.

    Ooooh that gives me a hint about the other one, I see. But first, I’m going to take a guess at Neasa’s. 🙂

     It’s so weird how close everyone keeps guessing XD

    Right?? I saw a psychology video about a study where participants were given the choice of 4 names and a picture. They had to choose which one they thought was the person’s name. They ended up getting it right a crazy amount of the time.

    This is even funnier, though, since we have no options to choose from, just a picture. Our brains are weird. XD

    Wild guessing with absolutely no system to it XD

    Seems like an effective method lol.


    @irishcelticredflowercrown

    Name: Eva Olson

    Age: 15ish 16ish

    Career, role in story: Either MC or best friend of MC

    Personality: Dedicated, rarely gets sidetracked, loyal to a fault. Reserved when it comes to her own issues, but is always ready to take on the burdens of the people she cares about (which is not a lot of people). Comes across as bitter or anti-social until you really get to know her.

    Would you be friends with that character?: She seems like a cool person, and talking to her could be interesting. However, I am slightly intimidated by her, and given that I am not the most extraverted let’s-go-make-a-new-friend type of person, I highly doubt I would ever just walk up to her and strike a conversation. So, yes I would be friends with her, but only if she were the one to initiate the friendship.

    Any other details you may have gotten from the picture: She’s got some awesome bangs. And two different colored eyes. The eye thing I think is either some rare genetic thing, or a sign that she’s not totally human. She’s something else, like a shapeshifter.

    How’d I do? 🙂

    Another character, anyone feel free to guess!

    @sparrowhawke

    Name: Amber Carlson

    Age: College-aged. Maybe 21ish 22ish.

    Career, role in story: Best friend of the other character you posted.

    Personality: Bubbly, optimistic, energetic, always trying to get her friends to go and do something together, like a hike or bike ride.

    Would you be friends with that character?: Yes! She seems really fun. She also seems like the kind of person who has the perfect balance of listening skills and talking skills. So, she’d be awesome as that friend who just listens while you rant your heart out, but she’d also be right next to you singing karaoke at 2am.

    Any other details you may have gotten from the picture: She doesn’t wear a ton of makeup, and wears glasses instead of contacts, so maybe she has a good self-esteem? She’s happy with how she looks and doesn’t care what other people have to say about it.

    @sparrowhawke

    Wow your guesses were almost spot on! Impressive 🙂

    Name: Emily? Maylie? Mandie? Idk, something feminine, but a bit modern-sounding, if that makes sense

    Hehe you were very close! It’s Mayra, which I actually think is also pretty feminine and modern lol

    Teen, 14-15 (I’m leaning more toward 15)

    She was originally 15 in the first draft, but in the end I decided to make her 17 because I thought 15 was too young for all the responsibility that’s eventually loaded on her

    Career/Role: MC, and I’m thinking a superhero, or at least a character with special powers (fire, maybe?)

    Almost spot on! She is involved with fire in the novel (aka dragon) and her hidden birth name actually means fire. But she has the ability to manipulate psionic energy (like Wanda Maximoff 😉 )

    Personality: Emotional, but determined and persevering. Cares for others. A bit of a dreamer and idealist. Melancholic personality type.

    Pretty much what she becomes towards the end of the book. At first though, she isn’t emotional or caring or idealistic in any way. She is very pessimistic and is geared to only think about her own survival and what will benefit her, so determined and persevering is accurate! Melancholic is right, she is pretty much dead inside until she her life is thrown into disarray. Didn’t think of her as a dreamer before, but now that I think of it, she sort of leans in that direction XD

    Anything else: I have a feeling her hair color is significant. And she lives in a futuristic city.

    You are excellent at this XD. She lives in futuristic dystopian San Francisco and her hair colour is a certain thing she gains after she is gifted with powers.

     


    @lonathecat

    Well done! Yours is pretty accurate, almost eerily so haha

    Name: Eva Olson

    Age: 15ish 16ish

    Strangely now that I look at the picture closely, she really does look like an Eva haha. Age is also pretty close, she is actually 17. Very good guess 🙂

    Career, role in story: Either MC or best friend of MC

    She is indeed the MC hehe

    Personality: Dedicated, rarely gets sidetracked, loyal to a fault. Reserved when it comes to her own issues, but is always ready to take on the burdens of the people she cares about (which is not a lot of people). Comes across as bitter or anti-social until you really get to know her.

    Your personality description is great! You pretty much described what her character will become by the end of the book! At first she only cares about her own needs, but her journey is essentially her learning how to care about others again.

    And you’re right she is quite anti-social to some people, she actually mildly suffers from a condition called aphasia which she was never really treated for. It basically means that she has trouble coming up with vocabulary, so she either does sign language or keeps totally silent. It’s more or less inspired by my own experiences in childhood because I had something similar, I had to go to speech therapy for years. Bitter is right too, she has been through a lot of childhood truama which she has never gotten over.

    Would you be friends with that character?: She seems like a cool person, and talking to her could be interesting. However, I am slightly intimidated by her, and given that I am not the most extraverted let’s-go-make-a-new-friend type of person, I highly doubt I would ever just walk up to her and strike a conversation. So, yes I would be friends with her, but only if she were the one to initiate the friendship.

    She is VERY intimidating, you got that right XD. She has a GO AWAY OR I’LL BREAK YOUR ARM look, because that’s how she was raised. On the inside though she is incredibly lonely and has a great desire to be loved, though she doesn’t think of herself as worthy of even that.

    She’s got some awesome bangs.

    Thank you haha those are the bangs that I will never have ever because my hair is too impossible to manage ugh XD

    And two different colored eyes. The eye thing I think is either some rare genetic thing, or a sign that she’s not totally human. She’s something else, like a shapeshifter.

    YESSS SHE IS NOT TOTALLY HUMAN!!! Thank you! She is a mixture of different mystical races which I won’t give away yet. Shapeshifter isn’t correct, but good guess even so! She can actually manipulate psionic energy.

    @lonathecat

    OK, you did super well!

    Name: Right now it’s Sierra, but I think I was strongly considering Amber!

    Age: Yup, she’s 20.

    Role in story: Actually she’s that character’s brother’s girlfriend (what a mouthful). So they’re friends, but right now they’re working on getting to know each other better.

    Personality: You got it spot-on! She’s studying to be an early elementary school teacher, and I think her personality will be great for that.

    Anything else: I honestly hadn’t thought about that lol. But the first image I had of her in my head, she was wearing glasses, because I knew she was a bit nerdy and studious.


    @irishcelticredflowercrown

    Wow, I can’t believe I was so close! I guess it’s true that a picture is worth a thousand words. I can definitely see her pessimism in the picture now. She looks like she puts up a tough front to hide her true feelings. And the aphasia is really cool!

    Semper ubi sub ubi.

    @sparrowhawke

    Yeah it’s funny isn’t it haha, I wasn’t expecting anyone to be that accurate XD. Thanks, I’m glad you think so! I wanted my character to have some kind of a disability because I feel like that’s underrepresented in fiction. She was originally partially deaf but I changed it something that I could relate to more. I came across aphasia while researching speech conditions and I thought THIS IS PERFECT! Honestly I can’t believe I didn’t think of it before.

    She also has trouble seeing with her right eye, where the scar tissue is, which she got from a terrible incident as a baby. That is also a unique thing I wanted to give her – we have too many super gorgeous perfect characters, we need heroines that aren’t exactly easy on the eye 🙂
