I'm waiting for D|S / UberEnvironment to finish rendering... yay for ambient occlusion. *sigh*

So... a character meme.

1. [[What's your character's name?]]
Arkadiy Olenov

2. [[How old is he/she?]]
About 35.

3. [[Is your OC a boy or girl?]]
Definitely male.

4. [[What's his/her race?]]
Human

APPEARANCE
1. [[If this character were to suddenly become part of the 3D world, and ended up in a heavily-populated area, how many stares would he/she get?]]

Quite a few. He'd certainly be handing them out too...

2. [[Is your character considered normal in his/her own world?]]
Above the waist, yes...

3. [[What would be his/her most recognizable feature(s)?]]
His facial hair, or his mechanical legs.

4. [[Would you consider your OC as attractive?]]
Actually, yes...

PERSONALITY
1. [[Temper?]]

He says he hasn't got one, but he does.

2. [[Does your character ever get depressed?]]
Sometimes, but he does try to bounce back.

3. [[Leader or Follower?]]
Most definitely a leader.

4. [[What is the main aspect of his/her personality?]]
An incorrigable flirt.

HISTORY
1. [[Did your OC have a family of any sort? If so, are they still alive?]]

He did, and I think they still are, but he doesn't see them in person often. (I need to think more about that...)

2. [[Is your character out on his/her own? If so, why?]]
He was until he got paired with Vanya, and now she herds him.

3. [[Has he/she encountered any traumatizing events?]]
Lost both legs in a war, thought his good friend was dead, found out he wasn't, then found out that said friend is the reason he lost his legs, then his friend killed his best friend and tried to kill Vanya and is now swearing revenge... ...And that was just one example.

4. [[What was probably the best time in his/her life so far?]]
Probably when he was in the army in his 20s - doing what he believed in and meeting pretty girls on various planets in the process.

ROMANCE
1. [[Single?]]

Yep.

2. [[Had your OC developed any romantic relationships?]]
He rather fancies Dr. Vanya Lebedeva... And any other pretty girls in the area.

3. [[Virgin?]]
Hell no.

4. [[Does your character like flirting?]]
Hell yes.

SYMBOLISM
1. [[What animal would you associate your OC with? (Sorry, no creatures of myth and legend allowed!)]]

Wolf.

2. [[Musical Instrument?]]
Electric guitar.

3. [[Element?]]
Fire.

4. [[Planet?]]
Venus.

MISC.
1. [[Do you draw your character?]]

Very frequently.

2. [[Do you write about him/her?]]
Less frequently...

3. [[Do you use him/her in any rpgs?]]
Nope...

4. [[What other ways have you appreciated your OC?]]
I keep trying to morph him in 3d, with limited success...

RANDOMIZE!
1. [[Is your character wanted for anything?]]

Only by Havoc, and for not being dead.

2. [[What are three weaknesses in him/her?]]
  • He says things he really shouldn't, usually to people he shouldn't say it to.
  • He thinks he's even tempered, but can lose it spectacularly on occasions - usually at the wrong time.
  • He really can't resist a pretty girl...
3. [[Strengths?]]
  • He's extremely determined and stubborn - and very loyal.
  • He's intelligent - moreso than he looks or sometimes acts.
  • Physically, he's quite powerful.
4. [[Does your OC drink or smoke (etc.)?]]
Drinks, but doesn't smoke.

5. [[What's one quirk about him/her?]]
He's an extrovert, but he's surprisingly self-conscious about his legs.

6. [[Does your character have any phobias?]]
Something else I need to give thought to... although he does have an aversion to grenades now.

7. [[What could you do to get him/her into a blind rage?]]
Be Havoc.

8. [[Does your OC like chickens?]]
Mostly for dinner.

THE FINAL QUESTION
.Q. - What would you consider your relationship with your character to be like?

Very good, but he's a bit of a pain... :)

I really need to do this. For each of my main characters. I'll do it in my writing blog, mbrstales.

I've got to admit, for something relatively simple, it did make me think of a few things that I'd not properly considered before - particularly the parents.

I was running out of strengths too... poor Arkadiy. XD;;

Yes! I absolutely must do this for my NaNo cast. *nods*

And I learned something new about Arkadiy! I did not know he was a huge flirt, but it does make a lot of sense. ;)

Haha, that's something I must have kept quite quiet... It's something Vanya is not so keen on. She hates it when he flirts with her, because she values their professional relationship, but she hates it when he flirts with others because she does actually rather like him. >_>

He is quite dense, on the other hand, and whilst he very much likes Vanya and will do all he can not to hurt her, he can't seem to see that she does indeed like him, but doesn't want to risk their friendship...

So quite what she'll do when I introduce Ten, Paradigm and Havoc's rather pretty sister, I don't know. ;)

It's a surprisingly fun meme. :o Between the parents and the phobias, it's given me some food for thought for NaNo...

I can imagine! A love triangle would be fun... especially if it is not really a love triangle, but maybe Vanya misinterprets something and ends up thinking it is? She apparently is jealous type. ;)

Your characters are always so interesting.

It's quite scary really, but he really does seem to flirt a lot every time I write about him. ^_^; Even, apparently, in hospital... O_o
