11) Is there any OC of yours you could describe as a “sunshine”?
Hmm… I’d say Carmen, from Raven and Caelia’s story. She’s got her own troubles, of course, but she’s quite chipper. If we’re talking main girls, though, then I think Sarra is that, as despite near crippling anxiety, she always tries to smile for people. A lot of people find her actually scary because of it.
12) Name an OC that isn’t yours but who you like a lot
This is by no means an EXHAUSTIVE list at all, but I’m limiting myself.
13) Do you have any troublemaker OCs?
Hmm… if we’re talking in the traditional ‘pulling pranks’ sort of deal… then honestly the only OC I’ve got that would really fall into that would be Ambrose Lupus, Raven’s teacher (and later father figure).
If we’re talking about ‘falls headfirst into things and makes trouble by accident’, then that’s Lex, ESPECIALLY at the beginning of her story where she’s a reckless hothead.
14) Introduce an OC with a tragic backstory
Ahaha… ha… ha… oh, dear god, this is actually MOST of my OCs, since I tend to have things set in fantasy worlds in the middle of crises. The most fantastical one is probably Lex’s (had to mercy kill her mother, home fell while she was ‘asleep’, lost most of her memories). The others, I try to make a little more relatable, such as Avalon (Father died, Mother remarried, stepfather abuses her physically disabled younger sister, Mother is now neglectful, no one believes her about the events so she’s stuck trying to keep her sister safe on her own), Raven (lost her birth mother in a war and, while happily adopted, had to deal with extensive bullying due to what is basically an allergy), and Sarra (abandoned by her parents as a toddler).
21) Your most artistic OC
That’ll probably be Sarra, as she actively draws and is really good, despite what she might think (she even manages to use it to help the war effort, thanks to making copies of maps). Irvine, from Raven’s story, is also an artist, but he dropped it for a while, slowly picking up again during the story.
22) Is there any OC of yours people tend to mischaracterize? If yes, how?
Um… well, I did have to have a long conversation with a friend about Esther, a character is Avalon’s story, mostly because Esther is quite ‘alien’ in thinking compared to what we’d consider normal. Mostly, he thought her a thoughtless, bloodthirsty brute, when she’s more of a broken and absolutely exhausted general who can’t THINK of anything but war efforts anymore.
23) Introduce OC that has changed from your first idea concerning what the character would be like?
Uh… huh. Hmm… Let’s see…
The only one I can think of is Mariana, actually. Her first iteration was a very no-nonsense, strict ‘proper lady’ who had to learn to loosen up and, while that’s still true to an extent, she changed more into a young woman made very tired by all the duties placed on her. Oh, and she can drink anyone and everyone under the table while being perfectly sober. Like, I half wonder whether she could outdrink Norse Gods.
24) If you could meet one OC of yours, who would it be and why?
Honestly? Mariana or Raven. Because they are the LEAST zany of my OCs, meaning I wouldn’t fear for my life. xD
