365 (who?)

FULL NAME: Rhistel Aidan from Sentes. His real surname got lost, since he was too little to remember it when he was found.
MEANING: "Rhistel" doesn't have any particular meaning, while Aidan means "blessed by the Gods" in the sacred language. Sentes is the village he comes from.
NICKNAME: Among the servitude in his mansion and people of his feud he's often addressed as "bran luth", which means something like "silent/quiet lord", referring to the fact that he almost never speaks or even shows himself around at all. Everyone else just call him with his name, except for Sywyn who calls him "shadowling" or just "bookworm", depending on his mood...
ACTUAL AGE: well.. when the story begins he's 16-17, and will become 22-23 by the end of the events.
RESIDENCE: his feud, about 100 miles from the main city of the human kingdom. Does it makes any sense to you? :°D
AGE APPEARANCE: his own, basically... for now
SPECIES: halfbreed, human/dur'gwath (dark elf)  
GENDER: male
MARITAL STATUS: widower, married again later on with Elyon
KIDS: no one
OCCUPATION: Landlord and merchant. And bookworm.


HAIR STYLE AND LENGTH: His hair is black, parted in the centre, with an unkept and uneven haircut (he tends to cut his hair himself at random when he feels it's growing too long.); he always wear it loose.
EYES COLOR: pale grey
HEIGHT: 1,78 m
ABNORMALITIES(TAIL): pointed ears?
DISTINGUISHING MARKS(SCARS,MOLES): no one visible (huge bite scar on his right arm)
SELF CARE(MAKE UP): he's very clean but doesn't care about his look enough to do anything else than wash himself accurately.
FIRST IMPRESSION ON PEOPLE: reserved, sulky and mostly distrustful.
SKIN COLOR: rather pale
DEFAULT EXPRESSION: thoughtful, defiant, suspicious.
DESCRIBE THEIR VOICE: clear and crisp, with almost no inflections, but very, very low. Listening to him you could almost assume he's no able to scream or yell..
WEAPON OF CHOICE: Magic/mindbending if he really has to. He he's not trained in the use of any weapon, even though Sywyn sometimes likes to force him into some sword lessons... just to abuse him a little, I suppose...


..WHEN YOU FIRST MEET THEM: You wouldn't get much, aside that fact that he's VERY defiant. He doesn't trust you. He doesn't talk to you and he just basically keeps staring at you as you were ready to stab him or something. Will talk only if questioned, answering with short and lapidary sentences in an almost rude tone.
..AS YOU KNOW THEM BETTER(AND THEY LIKE YOU): He probably still doesn't trust you, but will stop staring at you and will just become very, very shy. Will avoid eye contact and talk even less than before, but with a more friendly tone (if possible).
..AS YOU KNOW THEM BETTER(AND THEY DISLIKE YOU): nothing would change from when you first met him, aside for the fact that he will now actively consider you a nuisance (or a danger, depending on the case). Will became definitely rude, almost arrogant. If instigated, he will most probably end up threatening you. And he will be very convincing.
POSITIVE CHARACTERISTICS: patient, good listener and very reliable.
NEGATIVE CHARACTERISTICS: silent and generally rude... lacks of compassion or just sensitivity in general.
FAVORITE FOOD: he suffers from various eating disorders (some of which are quite funny, actually) so he really doesn't enjoy food. Will only eat if forced, and only foods with almost no taste.
FAVORITE ANIMAL: I don't think he has any.
LEAST FAVORITE COLOR: Bright and over-saturated ones.
LEAST FAVORITE FOOD: Spicy or salty food could seriously make him cry XDD
LEAST FAVORITE ANIMAL: Horses. They scare him.
HOBBIES: Reading and studying in general. (see? bookworm..)
USUAL MOOD: serious, pensive
DRINK/SMOKE/DRUGS: none of them
SOFT SPOT/VULNERABILITY: he doesn't have soft spots of any sort, but I suppose that Cat and Elyon could be considered a vulnerability?
OPINION ON SWEARING: he doesn't swear, but doesn't care at all if people around him do.
MUSIC TYPE: none really
SLEEPING PATTERN: depending if he remembers to sleep, but mostly from 2-3am to 7-8am
CLEANLINESS/NEATNESS: definitely neat and clean
HOW DO THEY PASS TIME: when he's not with Elyon he's reading in his rooms..
BIGGEST SECRET: that's a secret!
WHAT ANIMAL WOULD THEY BE: dunno, he would probably be a wildcat...
FEARS: death, loneliness
DRUNK TYPE: he's a non-drinker, but anyway I suppose that he would fall asleep before even getting properly drunk...
SPECIAL ABILITIES/MAGICS: major mindbending abilities, plus some general magic (fate, death, energy)
DONE ANYTHING TO GET IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW: yes, but the law doesn't know u_u


DANGER: will stay on the defensive and also grow very nervous.
SOMEONE THEY HATE WHO HAS A CRUSH ON THEM: Will try to ignore them at his best.  
PROPOSAL TO MARRY: depending on who is the one proposing to him of course XD... but I suppose he would feel very embarrassed anyway...
DEATH OF LOVED ONE: : I suppose that if Elyon dies he would close himself in an even more strict isolation, remaining in mourning for a good while... then, since she was the only reason why he tried to act good, he would just drop any kind of pretended morality and become a serious bastard >____>...
INJURY: He's used to them and he learnt that screaming or crying won't help him in any way... he will just try to endure at his best (but since he's not very strong himself, serious injuries will most probably make him unconscious very quickly)
SOMETHING IRRESISTABLY CUTE: he would stare at it for a good while, perplexed... trying to figure out what makes him stare at it so much XD
LOSS OF HOURS OF WORK: He would feel very disappointed and probably brood over it for a while, but he would start again from the beginning shortly after.


DO THEY TAKE INITIATIVE: not even with a gun to his head :°D
HOW DO THEY ACT(SHY,ETC): He always looks like he doesn't care or he's not interested... which is, most of the time, the truth :°D
GENTLEMAN/LADYLIKE VS KLUTZY: pfff :°D he doesn't have the slightest clue on what good manners are....
GO SLOW VS JUMP INTO: go slow, definitely...
TRUE LOVE VS TESTING DIFF PEOPLE: true love. not that he fully realize what true love involves, though....
PROTECTIVE: In an almost obsessive way.
WHAT KIND OF PRESENTS DO THEY BUY: he doesn't buy presents, he's just not used...
TYPE OF KISSER: he can be quite passionate, but it mostly depends on who's kissing XD
DO THEY WANT KIDS: Yes he would like to, but being him an half-breed he knows that chances are high that he can not conceive children (and he's kinda sad about it)
ARE THEY ROMANTIC: like a calcareous rock...
HOW ARE THEY IN BED: pretty good, actually... mostly because he... cheats :°D... he can read minds and... act accordingly u__ù.... (but since his only lover is his wife, he doesn't consider this as cheating, but just "doing his best" X°D)
TOYS?: nope :°D
S+M: never
GET JEALOUS EASY: He's very confident and knows that Elyon's loyalty is very strong, so as long as she's fine he rarely consider other men a threat (he even hired Sywyn as her bodyguard, it says a lot :°D)
MARRY FOR MONEY: Well.... yes, that's the main reason why he married his first wife o___o (not properly for money, he was interested in her family possessions... but it's the same I suppose)
FAVORITE POSITION: he's very passive, I don't think he has a favourite position, he mostly does what his partner wants...
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN ON THEIR DREAM DATE: he doesn't have a dream date X°D
OPINION ON SEX: Something too private to even speak of, let alone doing it with just anyone!
A character survey about Rhistel, for anyone out there interested in it, but mostly for my own entertainment...

First stumbled in this questionnaire in *Mavrosh's page, and immediately felt the need to compile it for my characters too, since it was very accurate and interesting...
I started it with a bunch of characters but I soon got bored (too much English!!) and forgot about it u___.... I recently decided to finally finish at least Rhistel's one, since the info I gave about him until now are quite ridiculous :D... this should make up for it, even if only a little...

Sad!!! Beautifully Done!!!

I think you said at one time that you were worried Rhistel was too 'Mary-sueish'. I don't think that's a problem, going from the varied (and colorful) responses to the survey questions. Synwyn is much more of a Mary Sue in my opinion. You've got a great cast!

So interesting! :love:

I was wondering: did you created a whole language for your world and an alphabet ? :)

Interesting survey ! I learned a lot reading it. :3
I don't know why I always feel an urging need to do the same with my own characters when I read things like that XD
SerenaVerdeArt Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I know why, because they're addictive!!! 8DDD (and it's the same for me too :lmao:)
Nyrn-Aeh Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, and they provide me a good reason for not studying :XD:
I may do this survey for a few of my characters someday...
SerenaVerdeArt Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ahah :D oh noes!! now I feel almost guilty u___u... almost... XDDD

oh yes! 3 I enjoy reading them as much as I like compiling them :D

LOL don't feel guilty, I always find pretexts to procrastinate ;)

Well I've filled it for a bunch of characters already ; I'll see if I ever find enough courage to post them...

:'D I'm begining to like him. He's cute, in his own way--but wouldn't try to say it to his face...or maybe I would xD though i rather think that would be dangerous for my health?

DO THEY WANT KIDS: Yes he would like to, but being him an half-breed he knows that chances are high that he can not conceive children (and he's kinda sad about it)
does this mean that the chance of his own birth were astronomically low?
since each of his parents were of different races... and if he is having sex with Elyon and he is atleast half human so that should mean he has a 50% better chance than his parents had?

also would you like me to do this for mooncatt?
