The 6-Prompt Character Challenge


I got tagged in this challenge by Melissa@Quill Pen Writer (thanks, Melissa!). It's a challenge to know your characters better by asking them the same six questions. I took me a while to figure out which story to do it with, since I'm working on a few. In the end, I decided to go with Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog, a fantasy I'm currently editing. So, here we go.

Kay Hollander
 
Not exactly what he looks like, of course, but close

Contradiction: He wants to be a leader, but he has no self-confidence. 

Meyers-Briggs Personality Type: ENFP (I'm not sure if this is exactly right, as I always thought of Kay as an introvert myself.)

Favorite Color(s): Red, because it's bold

How would he slay a dragon? He'd draw it out somewhere he'd have the advantage. Then he'd probably jump on him from behind.

His darkest secret: He almost died when he was born. He doesn't tell people because he doesn't want their sympathy.

Where does he see himself in ten years? Making a career as a dancer, maybe in movies. He'd also have a wife and a kid or two.

Sleeno



Contradiction: She's the daughter of a lord, but she knows how to fight better than some boys.

Meyers-Briggs Personality Type: ESFJ

Favorite Color(s): Purple and green.

How would she slay a dragon? She would charm it with her personality, then slay it when it least expected it.

Her darkest secret: Spoilers.

Excuse my geekdom. Actually, don't

Where does she see herself in ten years? Probably married and roaming the country when she's not teaching her children (mostly how to fight).

Tuaslee
 
I started writing this before the Hobbit films came out, but when they did,
Thranduil turned out almost exactly like I thought my elf would look like, just less old.



Contradiction: He's a warrior, but he also like to carve things.

Meyers-Briggs Personality Type: ESTJ

Favorite Color(s): Blue

How would he slay a dragon? He would track it down and wait for it to come out of its lair. Then he would shoot it.

His darkest secret: He killed an entire village of humans to get revenge. (But he's not that bad, I promise.)

Where does he see himself in ten years? Living peacefully in Silvae or perhaps traveling to Geric to explore the land.

I hope you enjoyed learning about my characters. I'll have to do a post soon on my writing, so you can learn more about what I'm working on. As for tagging, I'm just going to say that whoever wants to join, can.

What do you think of my characters? Would you like to know more about Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog? (Because then I'll have to do a post about my writing.) Let me know in the comments.

  2. Ooh the title is very intriguing. I would be very interested in learning more about your story and these characters. That's super cool that Kay is interested in dance. (I've been known to dance a bit myself...) ;)
