Create a Character Challenge #59

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Kitti, Mar 9, 2013.

  1. This challenge is one about making characters based on the setting that they're destined for and also just a fun romp with one of the most creative aspects of roleplaying: character making. Based on the image posted, my challenge is for you to create a character for that setting and post it here!

    Feel free to utilize this character sheet or create your own:

    Current Goal/Purpose:

  2. Name: Lee
    Gender: Male
    Age: 19
    Species: Human
    Family: Deceased
    Personality: Lee is very serious and strong willed. He used to know how to behave like any normal teenager before he was forced to fend for himself
    History: lee used to have a happy, normal life until one day, as he was coming home from school -he was a sophomore at this time- an atom bomb went off in the city. He saw from a long distance away a huge mushroom cloud before the radiation hit him. For the few minutes that lasted, his exposed skin felt a white-hot burning sensation. A few weeks later, his parents died. He had no other family to take care of him, so he had to learn to live on his own.
    Current Goal/Purpose: to find others out there who survived the nuclear war and build up a new world from the ashes
    Appearance: he's part Asian, so he has jet black, pin strait hair down to the nape of his neck and hazel, almond-shaped eyes. His mother was from Japan. His father was born in America, with European heritage. So, he's Caucasian as well. He's 5'10 and has a swimmer's build. He dressed like a regular teen and has various weapons on him... Just in case.
  3. Name: Shin Yamada
    Gender: Male
    Age: 16
    Species: Human
    Family: A younger sister named Rena
    Personality: Rowdy, talkative, protective of his sister
    History: Shin is a child who has had to age beyond his years. He is a child soldier in the army of his homeland. A few months prior, the country was torn apart from a civil war between the government and a large group of dissenters. His father worked for the government and died in the action. His mother has abandoned him and his sister. The government is pulling out all the stops in an effort to put down the rebellion, and has drafted every boy as young as 16 for their army. Shin received the threat that his sister would be killed if he did not take up arms for the government, and so he fights. At night he is haunted by the deaths he has wrought, but cannot show a worried face in front of his young sibling. And so he is silent, keeping all of his worry to himself. He dreams of a day when he can put down the gun he has been ordered to carry, and hopes his sister can stay healthy and innocent through it all. He has one good friend, the same age, that has also become a soldier. His friend and his sister together are Shin's motivation to keep going.
    Current Goal/Purpose: To get through the war and keep his sister safe.
    Appearance: Shin always looked a little bit like a baby deer. All limbs. He has always has a very lean frame, made worse by malnutrition over the recent months. He is Japanese, with the typical genetics. Black hair, and a short stature.
