{ The Interview Thread }

Hello fellow Roleplayers! Are you looking to flesh out your characters and maybe help others out with theirs in the process? In this thread, users may ask you questions about characters you have presented, questions that you'll answer in first-person through the character. Be it a new character of yours whose SU is still in the works, or an already existing character that you've been RPing with for quite a while now, you just might learn something new about them!


How it works:
  • Anyone may pose questions to characters in this thread. A minimum of 2 questions per post (not per character) is required if you want to post here, though!

  • Want to start being interviewed as a character of your own? First, fill out the Basic Questionnaire which can be found below. From that, others can start posing questions for you to answer. You MAY pose questions of your own for others to answer, when introducing a new character.

  • If somebody posed questions for your character, you may certainly answer - but ONLY if you ask another character questions of your own in the same post! Minimum number of questions: 2. Max? Infinite! And again, you may pose these questions to one character, or several different.

  • It's perfectly fine to "create a chain" with someone, meaning asking each other questions several times in a row.

  • Asking questions without posting any answers is completely okay! Say, if you haven't introduced a character of your own to this thread yet, but want to ask another character a question (well, two!).

OOC: Which roleplay are you from?
Fire Emblem: The War Cry

What is your full name?
My name is Prince Korval Dawnlight.

How would you most likely introduce yourself to someone new?
First I would ask them their name (Then, that's pretty much what anyone would do). Then inwould tell them my own. only if I am actually interested in meeting them though.

What do you look like?
I have blond hair, green eyes, and a five o clock shadow. My build is very muscular, and I am also very tall, even more than my own father. I wear silver colored armor plates decorated with gold, but during formal events, I am in a red tunic.

Where were you born
I was born in Gohln, the "Holy World"

Where do you live now?
I live in a castle, with my parents, but I have been living by myself as a mercenary for much of my childhood with my memory of them literally earesed from my mind (its a long story).

What is your family like?
My father is the king, and a very good one. My mother is very beautiful, and kind to me amd my siblings. My younger brother is a priest, and seems to dispise me for some reason (mabye he's mad about losing his heritage since I cam back). My younger sister is a serious tomboy (she wields an ax and once wore her battle armor under her dress at a peace meeting, much to mother's chagrin). My youngest brother is described as a polite young gentlemen (I describe him as a young mamma's boy, thogh I still love him as a brother), and my sister is a young girl, and can be a pretty spoiled bratt.

What do you do for a living?
Despite my noble status, I still prefer to work as a mercenary.

Who are your best friends?
I have a few. One is the "prophetess" of our kingdom. Another is my mount, a lion headed griffon. I also consider my family as friends (except my priest brother).

Are you considered wealthy or poor?
I am a mercenary prince. You do the math.

Do you have any positive special abilities?
Yes, I have inherited a special ability in the form of enhanced strength.

Do you have any allergies, diseases or physical weaknesses?

None that I can think of at the moment.

What has so far been your biggest challenge in life?
Trying to live like a "true prince" i 'll say, but something bigger is bound to come, I'm sure.

What is one thing you can't live without?
Hmmmmm.....My family, I guess, or anyone close to me.
You can fly if you try

As long as you have a greened haired women sticking her nose in your adventures. :p

(Korval) well pixie princess (Vonetta), I got some questions for you

Do you believe in black and white morality, or if there is even such a thing?

If you had to save yourself or your mother, who would it be?

if you could wield any weapon out there (any weapon) what would ot be?

What is your favorite hobby?

(FE: Fates reference) If you had to choose between the family you were born too, or the family who raised you, who would you choose? (no other options).

OOC: I am not really critizizing your character's behaviour, that is just my character's personality.

OOC: Which roleplay are you from?
Gunpowder

What is your full name?
Emmett Holliday

How would you most likely introduce yourself to someone new?
I would call them stupid until they'd run after me. Then if they don't, I'll make them, if they do, I'm happy.

What do you look like?
I used to be tall for my ages, but I got stuck at 5'4. I have black, thick long hair that graciously flutters in the wind in every high paced chase I do. I also wear a poncho, because I like poncho's. Sometimes I have bright blue eyes that shine and horns made of ice, but sometimes I don't. Gotta keep life varied, otherwise it'll get boring, and if there's one thing I don't like, it's being bored.

Where were you born?
I don't like this question.

Where do you live now?
I live where ever I want! It's ideal for me, I've always seen myself as the type that can take care of himself. Living alone gives me all of the benefits of life, without the constraint called parents.

What is your family like?
What is up with all these family questions? Just pretend I'm an orphan, okay.

What do you do for a living?
Have fun! That's how I'd describe it. Just the desert heat, and cool cool me, strolling through tumbleweeds and other people their belongings. Life has never been better.

Who are your best friends?
Ezekiel. For sure. He's a bit stern, but we can have some fun together. He acts all cool and priest-y... priest-ish? Well, he acts like jolly ol' god gave him purpose, but I know for certain he just likes the thrill of chasing people. And he's good at it too.

Are you considered wealthy or poor?
I consider myself rich. The world is my property really. This whole owning thing is good and all, but I just disagree with the fact that other people can do it too. If I see something I like, it's mine. Not that I care about stuff. I got what I want, and that makes me rich, right? Just agree with me, okay. Discussions are not my thing.

Do you have any positive special abilities?
I can do some cool stuff with Ice, but that's mainly my spellbook. My main quality is blinking. I shift and jump all over the room, I'm unstoppable, uncatchable, and very very clever while doing it! I blink without sound, without a flash, and then, out of nowhere, I'm sitting on your shoulders reading your diary entries.

Do you have any allergies, diseases or physical weaknesses?
Of course not, I'm perfect. That's what mom used to tell me.

What has so far been your biggest challenge in life?
One word, Soup.

What is one thing you can't live without?
The thrill of the chase. Is there a word for that? Let's just call it reverse boredom. I can't live without reverse boredom.

OOC: Which roleplay are you from?
Gunpowder

What is your full name?
Alex Rose (yes like the flower)

How would you most likely introduce yourself to someone new?
That depends on the person. If it's a target, I tend to introduce myself by confirming their identity and putting a bullet in their head. If it is someone else I like to think I'm relatively professional in my introductions.

What do you look like?
I'm relatively tall, I'd guess a little over six feet, and have pale but tanned skin as a result of my genetics and work in the sun. My features are somewhat pointed, but not unnaturally so and my black hair is of a pretty average length but is thick and a little messy. I tend to dress in dark colours despite the heat in the Barren Lands. I wear a lot of black or grey trousers and shirts under my favourite black coat, although I'll lose the coat if it becomes particularly hot. I don't know, I'm really not that fussed about appearances.

Where were you born?
I was born at my parents home on their farm on the outskirts of a small town called Fairbell in the Great Chasm part of the Barren Lands.

Where do you live now?
I live with a family called the Crowly's in Spider's Hollow. I rent a small bedroom with them for when I'm not on overnight jobs, which admittedly isn't that often just yet.

What is your family like?
My family are simple hard working people. There's nothing wrong with them and they're good folk but they're extremely dull and would much rather have me there living the same monotonous lives they do instead of my current profession.

What do you do for a living?
I'm a bounty hunter. I hunt down wanted criminals and capture or kill them for a profit.

Who are your best friends?
I don't really socialise much to be honest. People tend to bore me. I'm much happier out on the job than sitting in stuffy old taverns.

Are you considered wealthy or poor?
I can get by but I'm far from being wealthy. My money depends on the bounties I bring home each week but generally speaking I can afford my rent and living expenses. I could become very wealthy if I nailed a particularly large bounty though.

Do you have any positive special abilities?
Like many of the Bounty Hunters under Janet's employ I'm a sorcerer. I'm capable of fire elemental magic although I much prefer to use non-elemental spells like creating mirages of myself, instantly reloading my guns or blinking (short-range teleportation). I prefer pulling a trigger to tossing flames around honestly.

Do you have any allergies, diseases or physical weaknesses?
I'm not particularly bulky, but otherwise not really.

What has so far been your biggest challenge in life?
Boredom. I cannot stand the dull monotony most people live with every day of their lives.

What is one thing you can't live without?
The chase. The only thing I have found that removes the weight of boring life from my shoulders is the thrill I get whilst I'm hunting down a target. That thrill is the only thing I live for.


OOC: I'll ask some people questions later. As a side note to anyone confused, you only need to answer questions in-character. You are not required to interview others as a character.

Questions for Emmett Holliday
How did you feel about your best friend when you first met him.

I'd say love at first sight. I just saw him walking up in that priest outfit, with his hand on fire, burning that cross on my forehead, and really doing a number on me. I mean, that was one chase I won't forget, and I really hope he remembers it as the start of our friendship.

What is your favorite spell, and how do you prefer to use it.

I like blinking. Blinky blink blinkerdy blink. I'm puh-retty good at it. I'm all about just being there, not being there, and then suddenly being over there, to conclude my escapades by landing on a face and splatting it open. I'm pretty basic when it comes to blinking too. I don't do flashes, I don't do sounds, I just do shenanigans.

-Woop-
Do you aspire to be king?

How did a prince become a mercenary, and how did your father feel about this?

Do you aspire to be king?
Well I don't really know. Though it is my birthright as the elder prince, I never heard of many former mercenaries who ruled way as kings. Mabye I would wind up passing it down too my brother, as much as I would resent it.

How did a prince become a mercenary, and how did your father feel about this?

Its a long story.....
I was actually a prince from my birth, but I was a part of a prophecy to help destroy this evil cursed king, but his son tried to stopnit by kiling me. The Avatar of the Fire Emblem said in order to save me, that I had to leave my family without any connection to them,, and I was only five years old when I left. They even went as far to alter my memories of my family. To protect me though, the royal family was able to receive a guardian lion from the celestial world that would protect me, and that lion ended uo becoming my best friend.

I am not quite sure how my father exactly felt about me being a mercenary all this time when I returned nineteen years later (how I got back is another story). He was probally worried that I have taken some questionable jobs in the past.

Here's Sophia's (from Gunpowder) interview from the old interview thread. Note that this was conducted before the most recent events, and contains information mostly relevant to the character in the past but not anymore.

------------------

What is your full name?

Sophia Hartmann, or Fia for short. Whatever goes with you. Oh, also - I'll be telling you some pretty, eh - confidential information over here, so you better not give it out to anyone else. If I hear any news of this got out, it's your damn head I'm putting a bullet though, hear?

Alright... *clears throat* When and where were you born?

I was born in my 'pa's house in Orhurst - we had our own medical crew so my father didn't need any hospital. When, I don't really care. He says it's on the day he took over his major competitor - I think their name was Clock, or Dock? I don't know.

Who are/were your parents?

Elias Hartmann is my father. If you haven't heard of my 'pa, you've either been living under a damn rock for your whole life or you're deaf. And blind. And very screwed up disability you can find in this ****ed up world. Hell, even dead men know my father's name - that bullet they got through the head was probably fired by a Hartmann Industries firearm. Just look at any pistol, rifle, shotgun you see, chances are it's my 'pa's business.

Oh, my mother? *snickers* Sorry, I forget I have one sometimes. According to 'pa she was a "waste of a woman", whatever that means. Well I guess I must've gotten the brown hair fro her - 'pa ain't got any.

Do you have any family other than your parents?

No, none that I know are still alive at least. I'm an only child so I've got no direct siblings; 'pa never stayed with one woman too much - understandable. 'Pa was not an only child, but his brothers were all killed in the war and he was the youngest so he didn't get sent. My mother's side, as I said, I know nothing about. I also had a step brother, but he, eh... uhm... an accident happened, and he died.

Next question you piece of ****.

Any story from the past you'd like to share with us?

Eh, if you want something interesting to read, here's my "criminal report" I snagged from the sheriff a while back. Not something I like talking about, but hey, I've got nothing to lose. *hands paper*

After graduation, she immediately enrolled into the healing and medicine program of Skyrith Academy as requested by her father; whom she respected and whose every command she obeyed. She was sixteen at the time. Soon after enrolling, she realized her strategy of threatening people did not work anymore. Teachers here were sorcerers, much more powerful than those at the schools she attended. So were the students. She immediately requested for her father to remove her from the academy and allow her to be his apprentice and heir to the business.

Her father strongly disagreed. He knew his daughter. The moment he would take her in as an apprentice, she would begin rising up the chain of command, eventually taking his place as owner. He explained to her that he had chosen her step-brother as heir to the business. the latter was much less obsessed with success and had a "clearer mind". Sophia was to stay in Skyrith and become a nurse.

A week later, Sophia's step-brother was found in his room, pinned to the wall by his shirt, apparently having being stabbed numerous times in the chest.
Where do you live in, and with whom? Describe the person/people.

Well, our clan is mainly located in Larkin, but we've got a few safehouses all across the Chasm - biggest ones are in Larkin, Fairbell and Silverston. I usually stay in Larkin though. The Culebras are basically my family now. I get in touch with 'pa sometimes, but aside from that it's nothing but them I have. They're good people, but the boys' behavior get of hand sometimes - and it's usually up to yours truly to fix it. We all got our reasons for being in the group, but when it comes to helping each other out, we're a single unit. You take down one of us, chances are you're gonna be found dead the next day with a dozen bullets in your chest.

What do you do for a living?

Ehm.... I'm part of a non-governmental profit-making organization. Unfortunately our actions are - eh - unappreciated by most people, so we're not on the good side of the law. Leave it at that.

Do you have any special abilities?

Well, I'm a sorcerer, if that counts as anything "special". Right now I'm only an air elementalist, but I'm learning. Us Culebras usually use poison, venom, disease, that sort of **** to do our business, so most of my spells are in that field.

Tell us more of your appearance. Height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks, those kind of things.

I'm about 5'3 - don't laugh, my 'pa was short, okay - and 120 pounds. Chestnut-colored curly hair and eyes, taken from my mother apparently. =I don't usually dress like this, with a white dress - too formal, can't believe some people actually wear this crap on a daily basis. I usually dress like this. *hands photo*

Spoiler:


To which social class do you belong?

In the Barren lands, there ain't no social class. There's the ones with the law, and the ones against it. You can be filthy rich or poor as a rat on either side, it don't matter.

Do you have any allergies, diseases or physical weaknesses?

None that I know of, no. You never know what kind of **** you can catch around here, though.

What do you have in your pockets?

How did you know?

Wait, what? *checks pockets*

Hahah, just messing with you. Maybe. Right now I've only got a bit of cash, my spellbook of course, and my revolver - just a precaution, don't get your panties hot.

Do you admit to having any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?

Not really. I mean, some people call me a crazy ***** for talking to my Chameleon Nico, but **** all of 'em. Nico's better than every man out there.

----------------------

Here are the questions that were asked on the old thread which I never answered. I'll answer them sometime tomorrow.

What crimes are you guilty of?

Are you ashamed of any of your past crimes?

How did you come to have a pet Chameleon?
