This!....thing! [MEME]


Body and Appearance
1. Describe the character's height and build. Is he heavyset, thin, short, rangy?
6'0 and a pretty regular weight for that height, but probably a little more added on with muscle and some from eating all that wonderful southern food c:

2. How old is he?
23-25 in human years, and probably around or over 400...region wise.

3. Describe his posture. Does he carry himself well or does he slouch?
He rests his back against things when he sits down...and if he cant? Yeah, he will slouch.

4. How is his health? Is he fit or out of shape? Any illnesses or conditions? Any physical disabilities?
He is a little bit sickly, but since most of the population of New Orleans moved into his area, and with many colleges keeping him alive, he's doing just fine. Though he is quite angry about Oysters in the area being ruled unhealthy to eat.

5. How does he move? Is he clumsy, graceful, tense, fluid?
He's everything at once, but once a pretty girl catches his eye, he's bound to walk like he owns the place.

6. How attractive is this character physically? How does he perceive himself in the mirror?
He tries hard to look good, but he does judge himself internally. He'd never tell anyone else though. But all in all he's pretty attractive, if you like redheads that is.

7. Describe his complexion. Dark, light, clear, scarred?
His skin is a very dark tan in the summer, and it clears up around winter...making him look rather pale. He keeps his freckles all year though, and they dot his cheeks and shoulders. He does have many scars, but he's done a good job at hiding them.

8. Describe his hair: color, texture, style.
It's shiny but course. His hair used to be thinck but it's thinning out due to stress. The color is a dark red.

9. What color are his eyes?
Dark blue, they tend to look murky.

10. Does the character have any other noteworthy features?
Scars scars scars, but like I said before, he's very good at covering them.

11. What are his chief tension centers?
You could probably wind his heart ten times over if you massaged his back. It aches a lot.

12. What is the character's wardrobe like? Casual, dressy, utilitarian? Bright colors, pastels, neutrals? Is it varied, or does he have six of the same suit?
Very casual, but he loves bright colors when he can make them look NOT gay. His summer attire is jeans and a tank top. Winter is something he will have to figure out for himself.

13. Do his clothes fit well? Does he seem comfortable in them?
Yup! they are baggy at times though.

14. Does he dress the same on the job as he does in his free time? If not, what are the differences?
He's an odd job kind of guy so it really depends.

15. You knew it was coming: Boxers, briefs or commando?
Boxers or commando


Speech
1. What does this character's voice sound like? High-pitched, deep, hoarse?
Probably average?

2. How does he normally speak? Loud, soft, fast, evenly? Does he talk easily, or does he hesitate?
A normal tone but pretty fast if he's engaged in conversation.

3. Does the character have a distinct accent or dialect? Any individual quirks of pronunciation? Any, like, you know, verbal tics?
Very Cajun, which is almost impossible to type. It's kinda like this but probably more thick like this :'D

4. What language/s does he speak, and with how much fluency?
He speaks Cajun French fluently (though, in essence, it's a bastardized version of French) And some Creole. He also knows a good amount of Spanish.

5. Does he switch languages or dialects in certain situations?
Oh yes, he will switch over to French to impress or to confuse. He also tends to yell at people in french when he's angry. It's more polite that way.

6. Is he a good impromptu speaker, or does he have to think about his words?
He thinks pretty slowly, usually, but he can be pretty cleaver at times and impromptu is what he does half the time anyways.

7. Is he eloquent or inarticulate? Under what circumstances might this change?
A bit of both...give or take? He's usually inarticulate when angry, stressed, or tired.


Mental and Emotional
1. How intelligent is this character? Is he book-smart or street-smart?
He's actually pretty book smart but he keeps that to himself. On the outside he likes to make it look like he's more street smart.

2. Does he think on his feet, or does he need time to deliberate?
He needs time, but depending on the situation he can think on his feet very well.

3. Describe the character's thought process. Is he more logical, or more intuitive? Idealistic or practical?
Again, he's everything at once. He can be very flexible and adaptive whether it helps him or not.

4. What kind of education has the character had?
High School, but he was going back to college before the Hurricane hit.

5. What are his areas of expertise? What, if anything, is he interested in learning more about?
He loves the swamps and likes looking into the biology behind it all. But sometimes he will throw that interest away... trying to make himself accept that "it's just there because it is" to simplify things. He's very good at things that involve your hands, which makes him more of a kinesthetic learner.

6. Is he an introvert or an extrovert?
An extrovert, but he likes to keep to himself unless he's approached.

7. Describe the character's temperament. Is he even-tempered or does he have mood swings? Cheerful or melancholy? Laid-back or driven?
He is very laid back compared to the terrible red head he used to be in his younger days. His temper is much more even and he is very cheerful and open. He is driven in the sense that he wants to catch up to everyone else, tech wise, but sometimes he wonders if he should just lay back and not care what others think.

8. How does he respond to new people or situations? Is he suspicious, relaxed, timid, enthusiastic?
He approaches most things with a laid back and easy going attitude. He says what he wants to say, and if he can get a hilarious reaction? all the better.

React.

10. Which is his default: fight or flight?

Jokes of all kinds are welcome.

12. Does the character have any diagnosable mental disorders? If yes, how does he deal with them?
He doesn't...or is undiagnosed. For the most part there's nothing wrong with him. If he does have something, it's probably minor and easy to control. Leroy never believed in pills for mental problems.

13. What moments in this character's life have defined him as a person?
Many, the jazz era was probably his best time.

14. What does he fear?
He likes to say that he doesn't fear Hurricanes or storms, but they bother him to no end.

He really just wants to settle down with someone who gets him, whether it be a best friend or a girl friend.

16. What is something he doesn't want anyone to find out about him?
That he still holds deep grudges on what happened during the Hurricane(s). For that, he really doesn't care for or trust the government...whether it be Republican run, or Democrat. He also doesn't want anyone to know that he's a bit in pain, he deals with it on his own or with the help of his dad.

12. What does he look for in a romantic partner?

He loves it, but can live without it.

3. Does this character have a personal code of morals or ethics? If so, how did that begin? What would it take to compromise it?
He has morals but he's seen them all fail as well. Sometimes he lets on an 'I don't care' attitude, even if he does.

4. How does he regard beliefs that differ from his? Is he tolerant, intolerant, curious, indifferent?
He cares, but tends to follow his dad in the 'I don't give a shit' direction. Though some things irk him more than others.

Not necessarily, though sometimes he's a little creeped out by the huge influx of gay guys in HQ.
