I'm linking up with Georgie and Sky's Beautiful People for the first time this month. I've been following other people's BP and it looked like it would be fun and I love anything to do with character developing! For this month we're supposed to choose our own questions; either make up some or choose questions from the archive. I went the easy way and am going to answer March 2011's questions with my character Iorwerth from the Three Kyngdoms series.
(This is the first story I've actually done any character casting in and he hasn't been cast yet.) Basically he is tall, lean, dark haired and generally considered good looking.
What is their full name?
Prince Iorwerth Roland of the Kingdom of Cambria
Does his or her name have a special meaning?
Iorwerth is Welsh and means handsome lord; and Roland is after his famous ancestor the Paladin Roland. All the crown princes of Cambria have Roland in their names somewhere.
Does your character have a methodical or disorganized personality?
He is a fairly organized person.
Does he or she think inside themselves more than they talk out loud to their friends? (more importantly, does he or she actually have friends?)
He mostly thinks inside himself. The people closest to him: his sister Seren, lieutenant and best friend Llewellyn, and elven cousin Maron, know him so well that he doesn't need to speak for them to know what he is thinking.
He does have several friends.
Is there something he or she is afraid of?
He is afraid of what the fate of Cambria would be if Seren, Llewellyn and himself are all killed in the war to retake the land.
Does he or she write, dream, dance, sing, or photograph?
Write: other than letters, not really; dream: he dreams of a united Cambria restored to the glory of former years. He also has a special personal dream right now but I shall wait to reveal what that is! Dance: thanks to his cousins' teaching, he is an excellent dancer; sing: yes, usually old Cambrian songs or elven lays; draw: he is very good at quickly sketching accurate maps.
What is his or her favorite book? (or genre of books)
The kingdom histories in his Uncle Arimathe's library.
Who is his or her favorite author and/or someone that inspires him or her?
His father, who kept a journal for most of his life.
Favorite flavor of ice cream?
Summer Peach. Sun-ripened peaches with just a hint of vanilla.
Favorite season of the year?
Summer, when all the trees are green and offer cool shade to wander and sit beneath.
How did I do with my first attempt at BP?
This was a ton of fun!! Now I want to go do lots of Beautiful People with all of my characters!
