EXERCISE Create a Role Model

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS' started by Professor Objection, Jan 15, 2015.

  1. The title says it all. Create a profile for someone that people would look up to as a role model. This doesn't necessarily have to be a morally good role model, and xe doesn't actually have to be as good as people think xe is. The character can come close to OP, but please try not to cross the line. Also, the character does not have to belong to a specific genre or species.

    Character Sheet
    Appearance (picture, description, or both):
    Weaknesses (at least one):
    Who's looking up to xim and why?:
    Does xe believe it is deserved? Why or why not?:
    Theme song (optional):

    And here's my example.

    Name: Juliana Cage
    Gender: Female
    Age: 19
    Appearance (picture, description, or both): Hie.600.647225.jpg
    On stage, her grin is the closest thing anyone is going to get to a personality. But off stage, she shows her true colors as a kind and modest individual, believing her "status as a star" is not nearly as important as treating others with respect.
    Talents: She is a fantastic singer and a pretty good dancer.
    Weaknesses (at least one): She has cripplingly low self-esteem; no matter how hard she works on perfecting her art, she never feels like it's good enough.
    History: No one really knows where Juliana's mother is, but Juliana has never known her and doesn't miss her. Juliana's father works for a record studio, and his business seemed to be doing pretty poorly at first. After a while, no one wanted to sign deals with him because some other people who had done so nearly went bankrupt. So he made his own record using his daughter's voice, thinking the cute quality of her voice (she was 10 at the time) would at least get the attention of a couple of people. The record sold far better than almost any other, and the two kept going, getting more and more popular along the way.
    Who's looking up to xim and why?: The people who enjoy her music look up to her because they believe that if she could start at 10, nearly anyone could become a popular singer at a later age.
    Does xe believe it is deserved? Why or why not?: She would undoubtedly say no; the fact that she got popular was probably due to the amount of advertising her siblings (two older brothers, a younger brother, and a younger sister) spread through word of mouth. Many of the CDs were bought out of pity, and there are very few people who actually like the way she sounds, especially in recent years.
    Theme song (optional): Kisaragi Attention
