For Essi, bc I love her and don't know nearly enough about her, 1, 2, 3, 11, 19, 44?? :)
Does your character have siblings or family members in their age group? Which one are they closest with?
Essi doesn’t have any family. She grew up on the streets of Val Royeaux and honestly has no idea where she came from. When she decided to become a bard, she got a vallaslin tattooed on her face from a Dalish in the Alienage, so she could lie about where she came from.
What is/was your character’s relationship with their mother like?
Essi’s mother died long before she could remember. Although, sometimes when she smells the sweet scent of peaches, her heart flutters and she thinks of her… even if she can’t remember why.
What is/was your character’s relationship with their father like?
Essi was abandoned by her father in an Alienage in Orlais when she was just a baby. She grew up with the other children there, but she never got along with any of the adults, even if they did raise her.
In what situation was your character the most afraid they’ve ever been?
When Analisle stayed behind in Haven and she was forced to leave, she was terrified she would never see him again. Never be able to tell him how she really felt. When he came limping out of the storm, she was the first to his side, helping him to one of the tents. She whispered to him when he was unconscious, explaining how she truly felt, hoping and almost fearing he would remember. She was reluctant to leave his side after that.
What is your character’s biggest relationship flaw? Has this flaw destroyed relationships for them before?
Essi is a runner. When she starts to feel any sort of emotional attachment, her first instinct is to run away. I don’t think she ever had any real relationships, most just one night stands in taverns along her travels. She truly believes herself to be unlovable.
How easy or difficult is it for your character to say “I love you?” Can they say it without meaning it?
Extremely difficult. I don’t know if she ever comes out and says ‘I love you’ to anyone. And if she did, it would be in the heat of the moment when her guard is down. She, again, truly believes no one could possibly love her. She feels like a broken vase that is missing important pieces.
Sylvia adjusted the simple bralette that hugged her chest as she stood outside of the tattoo shop looking up at the large letters on the building. She nipped at her bottom lip taking a deep breath in. She had tattoos, she had been tattooed before, but this was different. This was the tattoo she’d been needing. Being hundreds of miles from home, she craved the smell of the rain, she craved the feeling of the portland breeze over her skin, the bustle of the city and the known address of the rose city. She walked into the tattoo shop and looked around. A small smile fell onto her face as she looked at the flash sheets hanging on the walls, she felt at home here.
Byzle Morgan’s head, neck and face are marked by racist tattoos. He also has a teardrop tattoo under his eye, which typically signifies that the person has killed someone, and a swastika in a clover under his other eye. But jurors saw none of that when he appeared in court this week because he had concealer covering them.
Each day a professional cosmetologist meets Morgan prior to the jury being brought into the courtroom and applies his makeup. It is then removed before he returns to the county jail.
Morgan is being charged with robbery after he allegedly stole a man’s motorcycle at gunpoint. He also faces the death penalty in a different case he is accused of killing a 75-year-old woman days before the robbery.
Too bad we can’t change the color of black defendants in order to protect them from the racial prejudices of the jury. #Hate it!
Now what I found strange is Liam interrupting to suggest the
and crosses tattoo. This
made Louis babble a bit, like he could not find the right words, only to conclude; “I quite like that one”
Liam’s reaction to this was also interesting; He nudges Louis in the side and then claps enthusiastically and laughs – like he just
made a great joke !
And then there is Harry. When Louis says he quite likes that one, Harry instantly puts on his ‘I better hide
my Louis fond’ scrunchy face
All in all this makes so much sense if the crosses are indeed in Harry’s handwriting and symbolize kisses:
1) Liam is teasing Louis, knowing that Louis can’t really defend the tattoo.
2) Louis gets thrown a bit of track but in the end just says he quite like it.
3) Liam is proud of having made Louis babble a bit and nudge him to say “got you there mate” then laughs and claps at his own joke.
4) Harry can’t contain his fond when he hears Louis say he quite like his kisses.
