idle rich sub-tropes: you know this woman. The Socialite is cultured and rich, and she knows how to handle any situation (or at least upper-class ones). her rich husband or father adores her, and never tires of supplying her with a constant stream of gucci and armani. she lives in a paradise of a mansion, usually in california, or a penthouse in manhattan. you might find her hanging out at various social events, with a glass of champagne in her hand. often she doesn’t have a job, but sometimes she can be working in a high-end job, such as that of a celebrity publicist, which nets her a very high salary.


Voice Types according to TV Tropes:

Contraltos are the lowest female singers commonly heard. Unlike their male counterparts (the basses), however, roles for altos are a bit more common, especially in rock musicals. In more traditional pieces, altos are frequently middle-aged leading women, though some of those are mezzos as well. The only role demographic altos have a firm hold over is for women over sixty - which in most shows means grandmothers. In the rare case that there is a female villain in a show, she will probably be an alto.

[soprano] [mezzo-soprano] [tenor] [baritone] [bass]

Four Temperaments Chart

I’ve been looking at ways of writing character groups that work; one of the classics is the Freudian Trio, (like Kirk, Spock, and Bones in Star Trek TOS) but since I’m working in an ancient world setting, the Four Temperament Ensemble, being based on ancient Greek concepts, seems to make more sense. I found some charts on the internet, but none had all the info, so I added some color coding and additional notes to one that was pretty good.

These go back at least as far as Hippocrates, c. 460 – c. 370 BC.
