Well since I now have all of the CR cast’s signatures (and am bored atm) here’s some insight into their personalities by me, a 100% professional signature interpreter!
Taliesin, Laura, Liam and Travis all sign by including their characters’ names because they are great and love their fans a lot. Sam and Marisha don’t bother with such pedestrian activities because they are boss and know it.
So first up, Taliesin. This man just went completely crazy.
I actually thought I had an ‘unknown’ signature on my box because I couldn’t figure this one out. Like, I was legit wondering if I had somehow forgotten a cast member because this signature obviously wasn’t Ashley’s, or even Brian’s… That is until I was sure I recognised a ‘De Rolo’ in there.
Yes that’s right, I’m 90% sure Taliesin designed an elaborate signature for one fictional ‘Percival De Rolo’. He signed his own full name below it (but smaller than Percy’s) and then, just for good measure, he added another ‘Percy’ below that one. My 100% non-fake but extremely professional opinion is that Taliesin believes fictional characters are at least as important if not more so than real people, and honestly that’s a personality trait I can appreciate in a man. Either that, or he has crippling self-doubt and believes none of us remember who he is.
Liam’s signature is pretty legible, although he kinda gave up on writing his last name. But to be fair, all good signatures do that. Below it he signed ‘Vax ≡’ (yes, with three horizontal lines which I can only assume mean ‘dagger, dagger, dagger’. Good stuff). Liam is the only one who signed at the front of the box, which tells me, a professional, that he doesn’t mind standing apart from the rest and is therefore obviously the visionary leader of the group. He also is the only one who somehow managed to include his character’s catch phrase, by just drawing three simple lines, which honestly only helps to strengthen my belief that he is the true visionary leader of the group.
Travis’ signature basically looks like it was made by someone who only likes writing pretty, loopy letters while completely ignoring the rest of the alphabet. “Grog” is surrounded by springy quotation marks which make it look like he surrounded it with sparkles. Both of these things tell me that Travis uses the character of Grog to express a roughness and bluntness that he himself does not naturally possess. He has a delicate, kind soul.
Laura’s signature is a complete illegible abomination and I love it, A++. Honestly, the only reason I know it’s Laura’s at all is because she signed ‘Vex’ underneath it. My opinion is that Laura knows her signature is fucked, which is also the only reason she signed it with ‘Vex’. This tells me she cares enough about other people to go out of her way to accommodate them, even though at the same time she is completely confident & comfortable with herself. Laura Bailey, ladies and gentlemen *harp music*.
Marisha writes her name in full, completely legible, with a nice loopy thing at the end & a little scribble on it that could be a little heart, but I’m not 100% sure. It’s very cute nonetheless. Although one might be inclined to think this means she is not yet used to writing her signature a lot, this interpretation is laughably wrong. No, the reason Marisha writes out her full, legible name, which takes time and is a pain to do many times in a row, is entirely because Marisha is a perfect human being who honestly believes every single person deserves her full, undivided attention. We do not deserve her.
Sam has apparently invented a new way of writing in which each letter somehow manages to represent at least 2 letters at the same time, thereby being very efficient and taking up minimal space… but it somehow still manages to be the largest signature on the box (not counting Taliesin’s who, to be fair, is basically cheating). This tells me that Sam likes to achieve maximum effect with the least amount of effort. However, he probably painstakingly moulded and practised this signature countless of times before finally, comfortably settling on this most efficient of versions. This tells me he likes to plan ahead even though he likes to give off an air of effortless nonchalance. I’m on to you, Mr. Riegel.
Matt writes out his first name in full, but gives up on writing out his last name just like Liam, but in a very aesthetically pleasing way. His signature is quite nicely slanted and looks very sharp. This tells me he strives for excellence and is very professional. It also tells me he is a nerd who practised his signature over and over until it was perfect because, like I said, he is a Professional. Like, I’m not kidding, he’s got this shit down guys. In my opinion this means he doesn’t like to leave things up to chance, he just decides to get good.
