…Hi guys. So I’ve been plot charting. And watching The Legend of Korra. And then going old school and watching the original series. (“SECRET TUNNEL! SECRET TUNNEL! THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS! SECRET TUNNELLLL!”)
I also watched Return of the King last night and cried like a little girl. I can’t help it! They bow to the hobbits! And Legolas and Aragorn and everybody… and then FRODO LEAVES AND PIPPIN CRIES AND I JUST CAN’T TAKE IT!!! *bawls*
So, yeah. I’m still freaking out about auditions, of course, but I’m pretending I’m not… Right now I’m just reveling in how awesome it is to be an earthbender and pretending my cello is not sitting twenty feet away from me, nagging me to practice.
Anyway, as promised, here’s Eoin’s bio. (I completely love Eoin. Just saying.)
Appearance: Red hair, thick and long enough that it grazes his eyebrows, but not so long that it obscures his eyes or covers his ears. Pretty muscular, makes him look slightly chunky. Has a big goofy grin that endears him to everyone. Fairly tan, but not brown.
Strange or unique physical characteristics: Is much more graceful than he looks.
Favorite clothing style/outfit: Actually enjoys getting into his official initiate uniform and dressing up for parties (unlike Caerwyn, who hates anything fancy or stuffy).
Where does he live? Eildur Castle.
What is it like? See Caerwyn’s bio – note that Eoin doesn’t spend time in the dungeons, as they’re not his assignment.
Defining gestures: Talks with his hands, waving them around all over the place; when he’s trying to figure out what to say, he furrows his brows and scowls a little.
Things about his appearance he would like to change: His weight – he feels like a baby-faced kid.
Speaking style: Loud, animated, fast. He’s very talkative.
Pet peeves: Arrogance, same as Caerwyn, but also negativity (on the part of others). He hates it when people mope around and are depressing all over the place.
Fondest memory: When he received the request for him to begin Initiation – he never thought he’d make the cut.
Hobbies/Interests: He, like Caerwyn, doesn’t have a lot of free time, but he very much enjoys music and wishes he could play an instrument. His main hobby is making people laugh.
Special skills/abilities: He puts people at ease. People feel comfortable talking to him.
Insecurities: He feels like a dork and that Caerwyn will never love him because he’s too derpy. [Oh my goodness, my brain while I was writing.]
Quirks: Laughs in a strange way – sounds like he’s hiccuping/weeping. [If you’ve seen any Messy Monday outtake videos, think of Jordan’s laugh – it’s like that.]
Temperament: Easygoing. Comfortable and content. That’s not to say that he doesn’t have drive, but he’s happy in every stage and moment in life on the way to where he’s going.
Negative traits: Doesn’t give himself enough credit. He also belittles himself.
Things that upset him: When the people he loves are hurt or upset.
Things that embarrass him: Himself. Eoin finds a lot of things about himself, or his words or his actions, embarrassing.
This character is highly opinionated about: What’s right and what’s wrong.
Any phobias? Nope – nothing you could label a phobia.
Things that make him happy: Eoin is happy all the time, generally, but Caerwyn is what ‘makes him happy’, per se.
Family: Oldest of seven kids – he’s always been under a lot of pressure to be a good role model, and never felt like he was.
Deepest darkest secret: Is hugely in love with Caerwyn.
Reason he has kept this secret for so long: Is afraid of rejection, of course, and it’s not like it ever came up.
Other people’s opinions of him: He’s friends with everyone, and everyone likes him. They don’t like how he’s so down on himself, though… It gets annoying.
Favorite books: Doesn’t have a lot of time to read, but he enjoys a good fantasy story – dragons and whatnot.
Favorite foods: Stew from the castle kitchens, fresh out of the pot, in the company of good friends.
Physical health: Very good – strong, fit, healthy.
Dream vacation: Doesn’t care. He’d go anywhere as long as he was with Caerwyn.
Description of his house: He lives in the initiate’s dorm, like Caerwyn.
Description of his bedroom: He’s in the standard dorm – plain stone walls, three simple beds and a chest at the end of each bed.
Best thing that ever happened to him: Caerwyn [This bio is a lot sappier than I thought it was when I wrote it… Whatever.]
Worst thing: The princess. Also [SPOIIIIIILER].
Superstitions: Slightly afraid of magic because of the princess going NUTS.
Three words to describe this character: Content, loyal, strong.
Supporting Character Questions
Relationship to protagonist: best friend & love interest
Favorite thing about the protagonist: her humility and her perserverance
Similarities to protagonist: white initiate like her, also very loyal like she is
Differences: more talkative, slightly more optimistic, but also less humble than she is (in a self-derogatory way)
Anyway. I’ve changed Princess Serafina’s name to Princess Eila – it sounds more Gaelic, and it makes sense that she’d be named after the kingdom (Eildur) since she’s royalty. I’ll have her bio up tomorrow.
