Character Profile #4: Valerie Mitchell

12 11 2009

Character Name: Valerie Mitchell

Theme song (each character from Rush/Radio Hysteria will have one, as the story is based around music): Augustine ~ Patrick Wolf

  • Main character
  • Protagonist/supporter

Gender: Female
Age:20
Height:5′6”
Weight: 8st
Hair: Platinum blonde.

Eyes: Green
Distinguishing Marks: Septum piercing, stretched lobes, cheek piercings, scar between eyebrows, mole under left eye. Many visible tattoos.
Distinguishing Mannerisms: Scratches neck a lot, twirls hair round fingers.
Describe the character’s appearance in a brief paragraph:
Valerie has medium length blonde hair, which she usually keeps up in a retro/rockabilly style, or in a messy bun. She has three piercings, two in her each cheek and one in her septum. Her ear lobes are stretched, but not hugely and she usually has cute tunnels in. She has tattoos up both arms, over her hands and knuckles, over her chest and one on each foot. They are all brightly coloured in old school style. She usually wears shorts or a skirt, a band tee and a blazer with long, thigh high socks and incredibly high heels. She has a penchant for hats of all kinds. She loves wearing accessories, and wears bright makeup.
What would you find in her pockets?: A compact mirror and her phone. Her handbag is a scary, never ending pit.
Personal Reference:

Briefly describe the character’s personality. How does (s)he react to stress, friendships, lovers, job, etc.?

Valerie’s outer, more confident and colourful appearance is at odds with her personality. She’s very anxious and quiet, and has little confidence in herself. She works in a small, independently owned cafe where the owner doesn’t mind how she looks, just so long as her clothes meet dress code. She doesn’t mind it, though she’s a bit wary about having to talk to strangers every day. When angry or stressed, she will retreat into herself and try and get as far away from people as possible. If not possible, she merely listens to her ipod and closes her eyes to block out everywhere. She talks very little. With lovers, she is very romantic, and expects them to be the same. She loves baths, especially ones with bubbles.
Briefly describe the character’s history. What’s happened in (s)he’s life?

Valerie was raised by a single mother, and unlike her bandmates, was not very close to the rest of her family. She loves her mother, who tried her best to raise her, though she was only 16 when she had Valerie. Valerie’s mother gave her her taste in music, and would often play dress up with her daughter. When Valerie was 13, her mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, but fortunately survived and is now incredibly healthy.

When Valerie was 16, she met her father for the first time. They get along, but are not close.

Anything the character can’t shake off? Any important personal promises? Anything (s)he is obsessed with?

Smokes, despite her mothers disapproval. Because of this, she tries to never smoke around her mother or let her mother see her smoking, or proof she smokes.

Briefly describe the character’s personality. How does (s)he react to stress, friendships, lovers, job, etc.?

Castor is outgoing, and very smart. He works with his uncle and two brothers at his uncles mechanic shop, and while he doesn’t like it so much, it pays decently and he gets to be around his family. He just sticks his head down and gets to work. He’s very family oriented, and because of how loud and talkative his family are, he’s very quiet and a good listener. When stressed, he gets very sarcastic and snappy. When angry, he often yells in Spanish. He’s very kind and loving to his girlfriends, who he’s usually in relationships with for a long time.

Castor is the third out of six siblings, all of whom are named for Greek mythology, as his parents are both professors of Greek mythology. Unlike many people, he didn’t mind having so many siblings. He’s family are very close, and he spent a lot of time switching between staying at his house or staying with his aunt and uncle who lived two doors down growing up. The family would often all tramp round to one house or the other for dinner and games. He was generally unnoticed in school and college, and when he left college he was immediately offered a job along side his two older brothers in his uncles mechanic shop.

Character Profile #2: Dominik Fisher.

11 11 2009

Nabbed from: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/node/3431369

Story Title: Rush/Radio Hysteria

Character Name: Isaak Fisher

Theme song (each character from Rush/Radio Hysteria will have one, as the story is based around music): Run ~ Snow Patrol

  • Main character
  • Protagonist/supporter

Gender: Male
Age:20
Height:6’3”
Weight: 12st
Hair: Black

Eyes: Dark blue.
Distinguishing Marks: Freckles, small scar on his chin.
Distinguishing Mannerisms: Very jittery, always moving something.
Describe the character’s appearance in a brief paragraph:
Dominik is almost identical to Isaak. If it wasn’t for Isaak’s piercings and tattoos, they would be. Like Isaak, he has short black hair, with dark blue eyes. He’s thin, in a geeky-bookish type of way. He generally wears jeans and tees, like Isaak, or jeans and a shirt. He doesn’t mind his freckles, nor does he have any piercings or tattoos. He wears simple, thick framed glasses at times, or contact lenses.
What would you find in his pockets?: Chewing gum and a spare lighter for Isaak.
Personal Reference:
Briefly describe the character’s personality. How does (s)he react to stress, friendships, lovers, job, etc.?
IDominik is definitely the shy half of the duo. He’s very nervous around new people, and is always very quiet. He works in a library and loves it. He gives in very easily, unlike Isaak. It takes a lot to anger him, and like Isaak, the easiest way to do that is to hurt his brother. When angered, he’s still very quiet but radiates anger and can be very sarcastic. Doesn’t forgive easily. When he’s stressed, he moves around constantly, and snaps his fingers a lot. He’s never really had a “lover” as such, just quick girlfriends and the odd boyfriend because he doesn’t like being touched, even if it’s just a simple hand on shoulder gesture. The only one who really can touch him is Isaak, who does it most of the time. Can be very OCD and hates mess and disorder.
Briefly describe the character’s history. What’s happened in (s)he’s life?
Dominik had a very simple, easy childhood. His family were middle class, but he wasn’t popular in school. He was generally unnoticed, and despite having his head in books a lot, was never really bullied because of Isaak. His family are all very close, and he and his brother would always go to his grandmas house after school for dinner until their parents were home. Even after they were old enough to stay home by themselves, they would still go to round to their grandmas.
Anything the character can’t shake off? Any important personal promises? Anything (s)he is obsessed with?
Obsessed with cleaning. Every sunday will clean the small flat from top to bottom until it’s sparkling.
Comments/Notes:
Very, very close to his brother. Doesn’t mind what his brother does to him as he’s always felt they are a whole that was split. Would go through anything to be with his brother.
