EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #4

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, Sep 4, 2014.

  1. I will ask a series of questions. Your character is confined to single word responses. One word only.
    The point of this exercise is to convey as much about the character with as few words as possible.

    Need an example? This video should help explain.


    Remember you can answer questions abstractly. For example:
    What do you wear to work? Honor


    How do you view other people?
    Why?
    How do you view your friends?
    How do you view your love interest?
    How do you view your family?
    What is your temper like?
    How do you react when some angers you?
    How do you react when someone else apologizes?
    When wrong, how do you apologies?

    Bonus:
    You think someone in your group is about to betray you to the enemy. What do you do?
     
  2. And I’m going to start off this time with some characters of my own.

    -------


    The door behind the small group closes with a vanishing creak, not at all telling with the times of the world they were in.

    "Well, that certainly was a pleasant, albeit short experience." spoke Jean, collecting her weapon at a counter outside as the rest of the group waited for her to come abreast.
    "Yeah... Definitely can't tell by the looks, but that blue bird-head's a pretty alright guy..." replied Ende.
    "...P-Pardon...? Was I mistaken, then...?" the petite Alt-Alia suddenly spoke out. Jean stifled a laugh, amused by both the tall youth and the shortest of them whom responded to his words.
    "W-What?" Ende looked to the rest, not able to completely comprehend the girls' responses.
    "A simple, and completely understandable snafu. You see, Ende, you've completely overturned the cosmetics of our interviewer for a representation of her inclined genotype." explained the masked Sir Georges.
    "To put it simply, we're very sure the interviewer had been a she."
    "Wh-What?!"

    And thus was the end of the session for this particular bunch. But was the Herodotus ready for departure, as it is...? Or will its resupplies warrant more time for the rest...?
