    Character interviews

    Post by Kon on Sat Apr 13, 2013 1:39 pm

    So Ynot found this list of questions for OCs on Tumblr, and posted it in the Cabana. He filled his out for some of his, and I think it'd be pretty cool if people posted what their characters would say in response to these questions in this topic as a little creative exercise.
    Spoiler:

    1: What does their bedroom look like?
    2: Do they have any daily rituals?
    3: Do they exercise, and if so, what do they do? How often?
    4: What would they do if they needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?
    5: Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)
    6: Eating habits and sample daily menu
    7: Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
    8: Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging
    9: Makeup?
    10: Neuroses? Do they recognize them as such?
    11: Intellectual pursuits?
    12: Favorite book genre?
    13: Sexual Orientation? And, regardless of own orientation, thoughts on sexual orientation in general?
    14: Physical abnormalities? (Both visible and not, including injuries/disabilities, long-term illnesses, food-intolerances, etc.)
    15: Biggest and smallest short term goal?
    16: Biggest and smallest long term goal?
    17: Preferred mode of dress and rituals surrounding dress
    18: Favorite beverage?
    19: What do they think about before falling asleep at night?
    20: Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?
    21: Turn-ons? Turn-offs?
    22: Given a blank piece of paper, a pencil, and nothing to do, what would happen?
    23: How organized are they? How does this organization/disorganization manifest in their everyday life?
    24: Is there one subject of study that they excel at? Or do they even care about intellectual pursuits at all?
    25: How do they see themselves 5 years from today?
    26: Do they have any plans for the future? Any contingency plans if things don’t workout?
    27: What is their biggest regret?
    28: Who do they see as their best friend? Their worst enemy?
    29: Reaction to sudden extrapersonal disaster (eg The house is on fire! What do they do?)
    30: Reaction to sudden intrapersonal disaster (eg close family member suddenly dies)
    31: Most prized possession?
    32: Thoughts on material possessions in general?
    33: Concept of home and family?
    34: Thoughts on privacy? (Are they a private person, or are they prone to ‘TMI’?)
    35: What activities do they enjoy, but consider to be a waste of time?
    36: What makes them feel guilty?
    37: Are they more analytical or more emotional in their decision-making?
    38: What recharges them when they’re feeling drained?
    39: Would you say that they have a superiority-complex? Inferiority-complex? Neither?
    40: How misanthropic are they?
    41: Hobbies?
    42: How far did they get in formal education? What are their views on formal education vs self-education?
    43: Religion?
    44: Superstitions or views on the occult?
    45: Do they express their thoughts through words or deeds?
    46: If they were to fall in love, who (or what) is their ideal?
    47: How do they express love?
    48: If this person were to get into a fist fight, what is their fighting style like?
    49: Is this person afraid of dying? Why or why not?

    I'll do one of my characters after this gets a few replies. Thanks, and have fun.

    Re: Character interviews

    Post by Kon on Sat Apr 13, 2013 3:19 pm

    Here's mine for Kakamu:

    1: What does their bedroom look like?
    My first bedroom... was located in a factory, next to a lava vat. It was always warm as a result, all I had to do was keep the door open. The walls were a grey metal and had wooden shelves which I put up, holding the tools which I needed for my daily work. My bed was flat, with a desk and drawer next to it.

    2: Do you have any daily rituals?
    Yes, there is a prayer that I recite when I wake up every day. I won't share it here though.

    3: Do you exercise, and if so, what do you do? How often?
    I don't really need to; it's too easy to simply teleport wherever I want instead.

    4: What would you do if you needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?
    Wait.

    5: Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)
    I used to keep things very tidy and organized, but over the generations cleanliness has fallen down my list of priorities. As long as I know where things are, that's good enough for me.

    6: Eating habits and sample daily menu
    In this body, I have no need to eat, though I have tasted food before. I find most sea life delicious.

    7: Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
    It depends what you define "wasting time" as. Many would say relaxation and indulging oneself is, but I disagree. I do a lot of that, but not too much as then I feel guilty.

    8: Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging
    When I'm particularly stressed or shattered after a skirmish, I teleport to various worlds until I find a nice view to sit down in front of and rest. Then I return home and continue doing whatever I was supposed to be doing.

    9: Makeup?
    Sorry, I'm not sure what that means.

    10: Neuroses? Do you recognize them as such?
    Probably. I have seen terrible things, lived for a very long time. I would say that by now my mental health is not as sturdy as, say, a young adult's. But I do not dwell on it.

    11: Intellectual pursuits?
    I enjoy reading about mythology and the cultures of other worlds. I do a lot of this in my spare time.

    12: Favorite book genre?
    Non-fiction, historical, as so far I have found that the histories of worlds in my reality can be just as exciting and intense as any fictional adventure.

    13: Sexual Orientation? And, regardless of own orientation, thoughts on sexual orientation in general?
    I was created with many basic instincts suppressed, sexuality included. Despite living in a different body now, those instincts have yet to surface in my mind.

    14: Physical abnormalities? (Both visible and not, including injuries/disabilities, long-term illnesses, food-intolerances, etc.)
    My current body, made of a biometal compound, is perfect. If I was ever injured in combat, I could bend my body around the wound.

    15: Biggest and smallest short term goal?
    Right now I am concentrating on keeping my family safe from wars, and finding a suitable home for us. I have lost many loved ones from them.

    16: Biggest and smallest long term goal?
    My long-term goal is to discover my role in the grand scheme of the multiverse, and whether it still exists.

    17: Preferred mode of dress and rituals surrounding dress
    I can assume many forms, though I rarely do so anymore. Just the one my mind was most recently transplanted into, altered slightly to suit my personality.

    18: Favorite beverage?
    Like food, I feel no need to consume liquid, but I have consumed a Roodaka Shake in this body. Tickles.

    19: What do you think about before falling asleep at night?
    Nothing. Once I start thinking, I find it difficult to stop, and the best way for me to sleep is by clearing my mind first.

    20: Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?
    No illnesses to speak of, though I was rather lazy and disillusioned.

    21: Turn-ons? Turn-offs?
    Sorry, rephrase that?

    22: Given a blank piece of paper, a pencil, and nothing to do, what would happen?
    Most likely I would draw. When my mind is wandering, I picture important people from my past, occasionally foes I have faced to put them at peace from my mind.

    23: How organized are you? How does this organization/disorganization manifest in your everyday life?
    See my answer to question #5.

    24: Is there one subject of study that you excel at? Or do you even care about intellectual pursuits at all?
    Yes, the histories of worlds, especially my own.

    25: How do you see themselves 5 years from today?
    Exactly the same as I am today. I have lived for hundreds of thousands of years, a mere five means nothing to me.

    26: Do you have any plans for the future? Any contingency plans if things don’t workout?
    I can't discuss this here.

    27: What is your biggest regret?
    Going to war alongside my friends and family, and losing some.

    28: Who do you see as your best friend? Your worst enemy?
    I'm not sure who my best friend is, though I have formed bonds and alliances with many warriors, most notable Klak and Ynot from my home planet.

    29: Reaction to sudden extrapersonal disaster (eg The house is on fire! What do they do?)
    If my house was on fire, I'd quench the flames with a flick of my wrist. Haha, if it was something more troubling than that to me though, I would gear up and run into the problem without hesitation.

    30: Reaction to sudden intrapersonal disaster (eg close family member suddenly dies)
    Withdraw myself from everyone else for a while, and meditate on them in order to put their memory at rest.

    31: Most prized possession?
    My collection of artefacts that have survived the destruction of my homeworld.

    32: Thoughts on material possessions in general?
    Everyone needs a hobby.

    33: Concept of home and family?
    Home is wherever I live in secrecy. Most of my family share the same outlook.

    34: Thoughts on privacy? (Are you a private person, or are they prone to ‘TMI’?)
    I am intensely private.

    35: What activities do you enjoy, but consider to be a waste of time?
    Trying to control my son!

    36: What makes you feel guilty?
    When someone reminds me of a past mistake or failure.

    37: Are they more analytical or more emotional in their decision-making?
    Very much analytical, but if it is a situation which uncovers old feelings in me, I would be emotionally impaired.

    38: What recharges them when they’re feeling drained?
    Sleeping and dreaming.

    39: Would you say that they have a superiority-complex? Inferiority-complex? Neither?
    A superiority complex, though I try my best to be modest. I have saved the multiverse a couple times, after all...

    40: How misanthropic are they?
    I am untrustworthy of my own kind to a degree, but once I get to know more members of it, my outlook may change.

    41: Hobbies?
    Stop asking me the same questions! I like to collect artifacts and objects from my homeworld.

    42: How far did they get in formal education? What are their views on formal education vs self-education?
    I was educated shortly after my creation for only a day or two. I was expected to become a smelter or crafter, not an intellect.

    43: Religion?
    I still live by what I was tought by my elders hundreds of thousands of years ago, and I feel a greater force at work.

    44: Superstitions or views on the occult?
    I have no superstitions, but the occult is a certainty.

    45: Do they express their thoughts through words or deeds?
    Yes.

    46: If they were to fall in love, who (or what) is their ideal?
    I've never experienced this feeling, but as I consider myself male, I would say a female equal.

    47: How do they express love?
    By giving.

    48: If this person were to get into a fist fight, what is their fighting style like?
    Slash, knock, teleport, knock, slash, repeat.

    49: Is this person afraid of dying? Why or why not?
    Prematurely, yes, because then I would not have achieved my destiny and my life would have been meaningless.

    Doing one for Klak. Might do it for others if I ever feel like it. All answers are “his own.”

    1: What does their bedroom look like?
    Tidy, with some slightly messy areas. I haven’t slept there in a long time, though.

    2: Do they have any daily rituals?
    Yeah, wake up.

    3: Do they exercise, and if so, what do they do? How often?
    Yes, fighting. I do it almost every day. I also walk. Good for the antidermis.

    4: What would they do if they needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?
    Order pizza.

    5: Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)
    Mostly clean; but sometimes messy.

    6: Eating habits and sample daily menu?
    It’s not much, though I enjoy some salads and foods loaded with carbs and calories. I eat for pleasure, really. Even a Makuta of Light has no absolute need for food. So whenever I say I’m “hungry”, I’m only partially tired, or perhaps remotely famished.

    7: Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
    Talk with people about current events, fight in wars, etc.

    8: Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging
    Drinking ginger ale. It makes him feel relaxed.

    9: Makeup?
    Hell no.

    10: Neuroses? Do they recognize them as such?
    I don’t know. I’ve had hallucinations.

    11: Intellectual pursuits?
    Literature, reading, philosophy, theology,

    12: Favorite book genre?
    Fiction.

    13: Sexual Orientation? And, regardless of own orientation, thoughts on sexual orientation in general?
    Straight.

    14: Physical abnormalities? (Both visible and not, including injuries/disabilities, long-term illnesses, food-intolerances, etc.)
    I’m a Makuta of Light. I’m not sure what you’re expecting here. My legs are slightly injured, and I sometimes cough randomly.

    15: Biggest and smallest short term goal?
    Biggest: Do the right thing.

    Smallest: Survive.

    16: Biggest and smallest long term goal?
    Biggest: Take down Blackout.

    Smallest: Stop HYDRA.

    17: Preferred mode of dress and rituals surrounding dress
    I don’t exactly wear clothes. Again, I am a Makuta.

    18: Favorite beverage?
    Ginger ale!

    19: What do they think about before falling asleep at night?
    My mistakes.

    20: Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?
    None.

    21: Turn-ons? Turn-offs?
    On: Wit, sanity, and the funny kind of insanity.
    Off: Evil insanity, callousness.

    22: Given a blank piece of paper, a pencil, and nothing to do, what would happen?
    I draw something. A mask, maybe.

    23: How organized are they? How does this organization/disorganization manifest in their everyday life?
    I’m organized in some things, disorganized in others.

    24: Is there one subject of study that they excel at? Or do they even care about intellectual pursuits at all?
    I’m good at logic and military science. Other intellectual pursuits fascinate me.

    25: How do they see themselves 5 years from today?
    Still doing what I love.

    26: Do they have any plans for the future? Any contingency plans if things don’t workout?
    Yes, and yes. I’m not telling you the rest.

    27: What is their biggest regret?
    Letting Treveya die.

    28: Who do they see as their best friend? Their worst enemy?
    Nadle; Caiaphus.

    29: Reaction to sudden extrapersonal disaster (eg The house is on fire! What do they do?)
    Put the fire out!

    30: Reaction to sudden intrapersonal disaster (eg close family member suddenly dies)
    Horror and grief.

    31: Most prized possession?
    My Keyblade, and my friends.

    32: Thoughts on material possessions in general?
    Entertaining, but ultimately worthless compared to the eternal.

    33: Concept of home and family?
    I’ve always heard about families…. but the only family and home I knew were a mother and a small hut on Malchior IV. I’ve never experienced a family in the traditional sense…. but whatever I’ve experienced has been enough for me so far. Even still, I’ve never had an actual father. I’m too old for that now.

    34: Thoughts on privacy? (Are they a private person, or are they prone to ‘TMI’?)
    Depends on whom I’m with.

    35: What activities do they enjoy, but consider to be a waste of time?
    Nothing is a waste of time.

    36: What makes them feel guilty?
    When I’m reminded of my possible future….and of the sins of my past.

    37: Are they more analytical or more emotional in their decision-making?
    Most of the time I’m more emotional. I’m trying to control that.

    38: What recharges them when they’re feeling drained?
    Sleep.

    39: Would you say that they have a superiority complex? Inferiority complex? Neither?
    Neither. I haven’t changed in that aspect.

    40: How misanthropic are they?
    I don’t hate the Makuta. I prefer the Makuta of Light, but…it’s not that I hate them. I hate what they do. Crush, kill, destroy, and no swag. My race isn’t the problem. The darkness is. I fight any darkness, Makuta or not.

    41: Hobbies?
    Chess, swordplay, reading, space travel. My job is my hobby.

    42: How far did they get in formal education? What are their views on formal education vs self-education?
    I reached what humans would call college level education in 3 years. I never finished because I thought I would learn wisdom from other masters. Look how that turned out! My incidents with Caiaphus taught me to fight evil till my last breathe, my experience with Nadle and my other friends taught me the value of friendship and heroism, and the Uterio War taught me that despite all the bloodshed and destruction, sometimes…. sometimes standing up to a great evil involves war. And there’s more, of course, but you know… I’m keeping it short.

    43: Religion?
    I worship The Shepherd.

    44: Superstitions or views on the occult?
    I’m not that superstitious compared to others. Most things in this universe have a scientific explanation for them. But the occult…. that’s different. That is as real as the words in this interview. I know because I’ve stared into the face of occult, and indubitably, it stared right back at me. There’s an old saying….”The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

    45: Do they express their thoughts through words or deeds?
    Both.

    46: If they were to fall in love, who (or what) is their ideal?
    Axalara.

    47: How do they express love?
    Depends on the person.

    48: If this person were to get into a fistfight, what is their fighting style like?
    Beat him down with my fists. Maybe use some powers of mine if I’m allowed.

    49: Is this person afraid of dying? Why or why not?
    I’ve escaped death so many times…I’m not afraid of death. When my time truly, finally comes, I welcome it with open arms.

    Post by Malygos on Sun Apr 14, 2013 2:54 am

    1: What does their bedroom look like?
    Malygos: It is more like a library than a bedroom. It is painted much like the rest of Imperial architecture. Fancy, yes, but nothing ostentatious.
    Anzu: Plain, black, and bereft of distractions.
    Mephistroth: Big bed, big room, black statues of me everywhere...and a portrait of Asmodeus above my head. To remind me of what never to become.
    Lynvara: Ehe...it's nothing special. I sleep in the library as of..ten as not.

    2: Do they have any daily rituals?
    Malygos: Not really, unless you count my duties as Emperor.
    Anzu: I check to ensure everything is running smoothly in the Empire, inform Malygos, and try to stay by his side whenever possible.
    Mephistroth: Served breakfast by a few beautiful succubi, check for assassins, ensure the Abyss is safely contained...the ususal, really.
    Lynvara: Go to the library, read...oh, and breakfast, and stuff, that too...

    3: Do they exercise, and if so, what do they do? How often?
    Malygos: No.
    Anzu: Daily. I have a rigorous training regimen to keep myself in top shape at all time. Malygos has no need for a weak right hand.
    Mephistroth: Whenever I can fit it in. I prefer magic, but it helps PR if I'm a big, burly man who could hold his own in hand-to-hand combat.
    Lynvara: Rarely, if ever.

    4: What would they do if they needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?
    Malygos: Magic always helps.
    Anzu: Technically speaking, if I requested dinner from an Imperial kitchen, they'd accommodate me.
    Mephistroth: Roast it myself. Like Malygos said, magic helps.
    Lynvara: I'd...wait.

    5: Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)
    Malygos: I keep myself and my empire clean. It would be foolish to do otherwise.
    Anzu: Likewise.
    Mephistroth: Not as rigorous about it as those two, but I keep clean. Ish.
    Lynvara: I clean myself, but my worksp..space is often a mess.

    6: Eating habits and sample daily menu
    Malygos: Technically, I don't actually need to eat. I can't actually get enjoyment out of it either - I lack taste buds.
    Anzu: I'm partial to seafood. The portal to the Elemental Plane of Water helps for fishing.
    Mephistroth: Give me a big slab of meat, any day.
    Lynvara: Usually I don't eat that much...maybe some sushi every now and then?

    7: Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
    Malygos: I do not 'waste' time. Any time I use is used precisely the way I want it to be used.
    Anzu: Being with friends. It's an enjoyable way to pass the time.
    Mephistroth: Adventuring. Ruling Hell is kind of a bore, sometimes.
    Lynvara: R..reading. Really, I...it's hard to get the time to have fun.

    8: Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging
    Malygos: Does an addiction to the use of magic count? Because I do enjoy using the power I have.
    Anzu: I don't -indulge- much.
    Mephistroth: Hey, I love sin as much as the next demon...but honestly, the favorite "indulgence" is to play to our stereotypes. It's amusing to see mortals quake in fear, sometimes.
    Lynvara: Um...well...looking at...*blush*

    9: Makeup?
    Malygos: No.
    Anzu: No.
    Mephistroth: This look is all natural.
    Lynvara: Not much, but on special occasions..

    10: Neuroses? Do they recognize them as such?
    Malygos: I have no neuroses. (Has a strong narcissism complex)
    Anzu: Not really.
    Mephistroth: No.
    Lynvara: I...I'm not the ...best with people...ehe.

    11: Intellectual pursuits?
    Malygos: Many, but magic is the one I prefer most.
    Anzu: I'm not that intellectual, but Malygos has rubbed off on me.
    Mephistroth: Like Malygos said, studying power.
    Lynvara: Engineering, magic, books...almost anything, really.

    12: Favorite book genre?
    Malygos: History. Because I get to laugh at the inconsistencies, and learn what I missed. And how things were viewed.
    Anzu: Fiction, usually.
    Mephistroth: Anything dark, gritty, and revealing of the true nature of the world.
    Lynvara: Well...I like anything that lets me get my h...head out of the world.

    13: Sexual Orientation? And, regardless of own orientation, thoughts on sexual orientation in general?
    Malygos: Asexual, and incapable at any rate. I'm jealous of love, of any kind.
    Anzu: Straight. No issues with people who swing the other way, though.
    Mephistroth: I go both ways. Demons get into all kinds of kinky s--t, so I don't judge.
    Lynvara: ...Lesbian. Wh..why would I judge?

    14: Physical abnormalities? (Both visible and not, including injuries/disabilities, long-term illnesses, food-intolerances, etc.)
    Malygos: Well, for myself I am normal, but I have no...parts, no taste buds, and don't age, if that counts.
    Anzu: Well, being an angel infused with darkness is pretty abnormal, but I don't have any disabilities or intolerances.
    Mephistroth: Got a big-a$$ scar down my chest. Not much otherwise, I'm a fairly typical demon.
    Lynvara: I...I'm mildly allergic to dragonscale.

    15: Biggest and smallest short term goal?
    Malygos: Biggest? To acquire more power. Smallest, to protect my empire. I don't have small goals.
    Anzu: Biggest, is to protect Malygos. Smallest, is to ensure the Empire runs smoothly.
    Mephistroth: Biggest? Ruling Hell, and keeping the crazy demons unified. Smallest, survive many assassination attempts.
    Lynvara: Er...I want to help the advancement of magitek, I guess that's pretty big...Smallest, is to find ways to help the empire, in little ways...

    16: Biggest and smallest long term goal?
    Malygos: Biggest? Conquest of the entire multiverse. Smallest, to reclaim the power I once had.
    Anzu: Long-term, I don't have many goals, but I support whatever Malygos does.
    Mephistroth: Biggest, is to unify all demonkind under one banner. Smallest, to stop the dissension that keeps sending assassins at me.
    Lynvara: Biggest, well...I want to make sure the Empire survives a long time. Smallest...I...it's silly...I want to fall in love.

    17: Preferred mode of dress and rituals surrounding dress
    Malygos: Robes. The nicer, the better, but I do have a plain traveling robe for situations it calls for.
    Anzu: Suits, usually, but I'll dress in anything black that's made for men, anyway. It's difficult to fit my wings in, sometimes.
    Mephistroth: Black armor, that leaves my shoulders bare.
    Lynvara: I...I prefer skirts and blouses, but I'll wear dresses at formal occasions...

    18: Favorite beverage?
    Malygos: It all tastes the same to me.
    Anzu: The Nectar of the Angels.
    Mephistroth: Give me some good demonfire ale, anytime.
    Lynvara: ...I like juice...

    19: What do they think about before falling asleep at night?
    Malygos: How I've improved the Empire.
    Anzu: Malygos's safety.
    Mephistroth: My continued existance, and whether or not there's an assassin hiding somewhere.
    Lynvara: My inventions, whatever I read before...sometimes...

    20: Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?
    All: No, really.

    21: Turn-ons? Turn-offs?
    Malygos: Anything that relates to knowledge, on. Uncouth behavior, and lawlessness, off.
    Anzu: On, is anything that helps Malygos, and the Empire. I am a servant. Off, is when my friends are in danger. Oh, and other angels. Can't stand them.
    Mephistroth: Oh, I like...hm. Something that benefits me, is definitely an on. Off, eh, I'm dodging assassins, I can't be too choosy.
    Lynvara: On, um, kindness, intelligence. Off, unkindness, crazy people...

    22: Given a blank piece of paper, a pencil, and nothing to do, what would happen?
    Malygos: A scripture for a new spell.
    Anzu: A letter to friends.
    Mephistroth: An edict of Hell.
    Lynvara: A new invention.

    ((The rest I'll finish later))

    23: How organized are they? How does this organization/disorganization manifest in their everyday life?
    24: Is there one subject of study that they excel at? Or do they even care about intellectual pursuits at all?
    25: How do they see themselves 5 years from today?
    26: Do they have any plans for the future? Any contingency plans if things don’t workout?
    27: What is their biggest regret?
    28: Who do they see as their best friend? Their worst enemy?

    I have arbitrarily decided to do this for Vi, first, I will update the questionnaire responses whensoever I have time.

    ~ ~ ~

    1: What does their bedroom look like?
    - "Bunkbed, workbench, reading chair, glass door-enclosed bookcase filled with texts on shipwrights and dismantlers of all kinds; not to mention wall-covering maps and ship designs. If I need to watch over someone, they get the top bunk."
    2: Do they have any daily rituals?
    - "I brush my teeth for two-and-a-half minutes before I go to bed and after I get up, and I always do a role call before starting any of the day's tasks."
    3: Do they exercise, and if so, what do they do? How often?
    - "Cardio. Lots of cardio. Plus, weight lifting. No less than ten hours a week."
    4: What would they do if they needed to make dinner but the kitchen was busy?
    - "I get the kitchen whenever I want. It's good to have people who know to part the Red Sea when I have something that needs doing."
    5: Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)
    - "Everything I own has its own place to be, and I want this ship to be respectable. Seeing as how Zev and others do not understand this concept, I regularly have to oversee people cleaning their own rooms up. I know my way around the big sister role."
    6: Eating habits and sample daily menu
    - "Seafood, vegetables, and bread. When I'm exercising, I'll usually take in some well-cooked red meat beforehand."
    7: Favorite way to waste time and feelings surrounding wasting time
    - "I do not believe in wasting time on anything, but I do like to spend time to myself on tinkering with weapons and crap."
    8: Favorite indulgence and feelings surrounding indulging
    - "I think it's alright to indulge in some things. And maybe I enjoy some...Steamy material, y'know, about...Young men...Mingling...Next question."
    9: Makeup?
    - "You obviously don't know me well. I played Fallguard in high school. I was a diehard captain - the bleeding our school colors kind. I've had to do labor and military service, from carpentry all the way up to heavy combat duties in the Troika, ever since I could walk. So please, for your own sakes, don't pretend I'm a girly-girl."
    10: Neuroses? Do they recognize them as such?
    - "Some people tell me that I clean my guns and tools excessively. It's productive, and if it's a neurosis, I don't mind having it."
    11: Intellectual pursuits?
    - "Does building a better spacecraft count? I've almost cracked how to make a warp drive myself. No thanks to Washu and Kokonoe, who delight in gloating over my mishaps and being very damn frustrating.
    12: Favorite book genre?
    - "Non-fiction, details on ship schematics."
    13: Sexual Orientation? And, regardless of own orientation, thoughts on sexual orientation in general?
    - "I'm straight, but I don't try to tell anyone that they can't love any other consenting being."
    14: Physical abnormalities? (Both visible and not, including injuries/disabilities, long-term illnesses, food-intolerances, etc.)
    - "Well, I've been patched up from a lot of wounds, but one thing that comes back to haunt me is the big bite that a Nightmare landed on my leg. I've even gotten healed via magic, and its efficiency is permanently reduced by 7%. Thankfully, Kokonoe was able to devise an implant that would optimize it, despite the weakness. I'm also allergic to a lot of different soaps, but I just get hives underneath my fur."
    15: Biggest and smallest short term goal?
    - "Kill Ravat, track down and snog Bobby."
    16: Biggest and smallest long term goal?
    - "Kill Ravat, track down and snog Bobby."
    17: Preferred mode of dress and rituals surrounding dress

    18: Favorite beverage?
    - "Cream soda."
    19: What do they think about before falling asleep at night?
    - "Work I have to do, how Mace and Whip and Bobby are doing, how glad I am to be where I am now..."
    20: Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?
    - "Well, once I got pneumonia because I was still a little bit foolish at fifteen, and stayed out working in the rain. Grunn obviously didn't know what to do with me, so he just drank himself into a coma over the fact that I might actually die and he would be charged for it; but Bobby brought in a doctor and made up an amazing yarn, and the doc provided him with some herbal tea that would work well for my case. So, I still use that for when someone I know has pneumonia."
    21: Turn-ons? Turn-offs?
    - "I like someone who won't back down to me, and who can treat a woman properly. I don't like cowards, braggarts, and general jackasses. So, personality decides it for me."
    22: Given a blank piece of paper, a pencil, and nothing to do, what would happen?
    - "Probably a schematic for a scrambler ship or something."
    23: How organized are they? How does this organization/disorganization manifest in their everyday life?
    - "I am very organized. I almost single-handedly turned Scinter's organization system - i.e., a pile of papers on a table - into primarily digital database, color-coded stationary, and key logistics."
    24: Is there one subject of study that they excel at? Or do they even care about intellectual pursuits at all?
