Which of your roleplay characters would you say that you identify with the most (even if they're not meant to be inserts of yourself!)?

This question is great and I’m sad to see no responses. D:

I think that would be August Yilmaz, which is a Hogwarts OC. We are both thinkers that tend to come across as cool, aloof individuals which doesn’t necessarily ring true since we are also overthinkers that are awkward when interacting with people one on one. (Also, Ravenclaw)

Our biggest difference would be his passion for music, coffee and his lack of misanthrophy.

I wouldn't name one in particular but I believe every character people write has a part of them represented within them. Whether it is a protagonist of a story and an antagonist I believe characters authors write have portions if them inside them.

Their interpretation of what love means or their interpretation of fury as well as their ideas on values they may have or what things they look forward too. I honestly believe we all insert parts of ourselves within these characters and that is what makes them ours.

So every character we make is kinda a self insert even though I wouldn't say that means we are those characters but it is our experiences and ideas that develope them.

I don't necessarily have the same values as my characters (one of them, for instance, is a sexist asshole... which I don't think I am), but I do believe all my characters do have some part of me in them.

The 'sexist asshole' shares my anxiety and the need to feel like I'm on top of everything and that I have a reputation to uphold (i.e. acting like I'm better than I actually am), Henry is the part of me who just wants to goof around, live in the present and not worry too much about the future (which could have some serious repercussions as a result), Graham shares my occasional pessimism and the need to drown my thoughts with booze (though I don't do it half as often as he does), Rio shares my passion for music and romance. A lot of them also share the same experiences I have, since that makes it easier for me to write them.

I don't think I can say I really identify with any of them. Each of them has some part of me, but usually exaggerated.
