I might as well let young Tenley Tych answer five random questions from ‘The 100 Most Important Things To Know About Your Character’ (obviously I skip any questions that are inappropriate for a younger character, like ‘have you started a family’):
What are your political
I’m only eleven. And the others said I should stop sending death threats to the president, so…
What three words best describe your personality?
Smart, strong, and amazing. Someone said ‘angry, sulking and dangerous’. They won’t be saying anything else like that for a while.
Are you basically optimistic
Basically, I don’t care. Stuff happens and if it’s bad I just beat up someone for it.
How much schooling have you
Never really been to school. Mother kept me at home and then she would teach me sometimes. Most of the time I just read by myself.
What does your voice sound like?
An angel, obviously.
Here is the link for those questions, if anyone wants to try answering them with their own characters. Like I said in an earlier post, they’re meant for RPG characters so not all questions will apply to everyone.
I’ve realised however that a flaw with having the characters themselves respond these questions is that they won’t necessarily give true, factual answers. When Jennifer says she’s completely happy where she is, she might not be being totally honest, for example.
