What are your character's views on sex and relationships? (do they think it's okay to sleep around or would they rather marry before losing their virginity that kind of thing.): Stormypants doesn't think about that sort of thing and has only been with someone as in sex with one person and he was a fighter and they had similar views
Is this unusual for their time? (If they're in a time and place where sex outside of marriage is suicide but they do it anyway): Not really
Does your character have any views on life after death?: If you die in combat then you go to a hell-like place but you get to curse at everyone and get drunk so that's okay. If you don't, then you go to heaven which is boring.

Or revenge?: Revenge counts, too.
Was it a one off, or do they kill a lot? (whether they're an assassin or not.): She does end up killing a lot of people. Sometimes they're not technically people (like the slave-race that no one cares about) but most of the time she's ordered to kill people

Has your character ever self harmed or tried to commit suicide?: Cut? No. Suicide? Yes. That's kind of sort of how she died.

Do other characters agree with this?: No one (except Erik) actually cares so they can't agree nor disagree.

.Erik wishes that he was Storm's lover. Or at least had a definite answer that he wasn't.
Are they or have they been married?: Storm? Marry?...It could've happened but it didn't because that would've been a really bad choice on my part.
How old was your character when they had their first crush?: Fighters aren't sure on emotions. Nathaniel was probably her first kind of sort of "I might have feelings for you but I'm not sure" person and she would've been around fourteen then
Did it end well?: God, no.
How older was your character when they had their first boyfriend/girlfriend?: Probably around seventeen when she got together with green squad leader.
How old was your character when they had their first kiss?: Fifteen with Nathaniel.

Does your character have any children?: God, no.
Does your character have any friends?: Storm has allies, enemies, and family and most people are all three at once. Erik considers himself to be her friend.
Do they have a best friend?: I suppose Erik would be her best friend. He's kind of her only friend and she won't even admit that they're friends.
At first sight what do most other characters think of your character?: "Fighter. Scary fighter
.Injured fighter? What?"
After getting to know them is your character what they first seem?: Pretty much. She doesn't really let people get to know her and she's a fighter all the way through.
Is your character 'popular'?: Not really.
Or is your character 'unpopular'?: Same goes for this.
Does your character dwell on and live up to this label of popular/unpopular?: She doesn't care
Is your character bullied or looked down upon by another character/certain group of characters?: Clarissa and some of the other strategists.
How does your character react to this person/group?: She reacted to Clarissa by sneaking into her room at night and shooting her and then getting her locked up. With the rest of them she just proves that fighters can strategize.
How does your character feel about people in general? (before getting to know someone do they automatically think people are evil): She sees everyone as a potential enemy and opponent in combat
Is your character right to feel this way? (they believe someone is evil and it turns out they were right.): Not at all
¬Is anyone protective of your character?: No one in their right mind would be protective of a fighter, but Erik is a bit
If so why?: Because Erik has a little more than a bit of a crush on her and thinks that she doesn't know that much about the world and might need a bit of protecting from situations in which she would need to be a normal person
Is your character protective of anyone?: Nope
Do they have any non-magical talents or abilities?: She can fight. And strategize
Does your character have any 'normal' talents? (drawing writing running etc):
Does your character have any magical talents or skill in combat?: Magic? No. Genetic? Oh yeah. She can beat a good number of people in combat though about half of the fighters are better than her.
Does your character have any unusual abilities?: She can strategize and most fighters really can't plan
Where was your character born?: Chicago, Illinois
Has your character ever been abused sexually or otherwise?: Nope
If none of these, were there any events in your character's past that has changed or traumatised them?: Most of training changed her into the hardened fighter that she is today
Did your character look up to anyone when they were a child?: As a child she didn't really have anyone to look up to besides those who survived training
Do they still look up to that person now?: No.
Has your character ever lost someone close to them?: Yeah
Did they die, or did they just stop being friends/lover or have a fight?: Both, really. Since she's a fighter, some number of her allies/enemies/family have died and she lost Erik for a few weeks/days/I don't know yet
Does your character have any regrets?: She regrets not dying in combat earlier and she does regret shooting Erik though she would never admit it to him
Give us a back-story, it can be as short or long as you like-Her parents foolishly decided that they wanted a fighter and decided to get a doctor the next time Candice got pregnant. She got into training and did pretty well. Stormypants never made squad leader and has a love/hate relationship with green squad leader because of this because he made squad leader even though she could beat him in a fight. If she wasn't injured. She gets shipped off with a bunch of other fighters to the station/ship, gets shot by acid, gets her leg chopped off, becomes a part of strategy, and gets Erik to kill her. That's less of a back story and more of an everything story but whatever.
Likes and Dislikes
Does your character like/drink alcohol?: She does on occasion drink
What is your character's favourite drink?: A concoction that's been passed down from the previous generation of fighters to the next that's almost undrinkable but makes you drunk really fast.
What is your character's least favourite drink?: If it doesn't get you drunk within three rounds it's not good.
Favourite color?: Dark red
Least favourite color?: Anything bright.
Favourite book?: Read? Storm? Ha!
Least favourite book?: The strategy stuff that Clarissa made her read
Favourite band/singer/song/genre of music?: She likes some of the traditional stuff they listened to in training
Least favourite band/singer/song/genre of music?: Slightly Damp In The Pouring Rain
Favourite computer/board game?: Most of the training simulations were good in her opinion
Least favourite computer/board game?: Anything that doesn't involve full-body movement and a few of the "scenarios" that the strategists decided to push on her she hated

Their least favourite place?: Med ward
Does your character have any hobbies?: Planning
What are your character's strengths?: Fighting, planning, getting into people's rooms, not being read
What are your character's weaknesses?: Dealing with people, being diplomatic, reading other people, reading at all
Does your character have any fears?: Dying in any situation that doesn't involve combat
Does your character smoke or have they ever smoked?: Nope.
Does your character take drugs, or have they ever taken drugs?: Nope. Storm's not going to do anything that could impede her as a fighter.
Is your character addicted to anything?: Fighting
What makes your character happy?: Being in combat
What makes your character sad?: She doesn't exactly get sad, but not her being allowed to fight got close enough.
What makes your character angry?: Most things
Can your character cook?: God, no
Does your character sleep a lot?: Storm ends up sleeping a lot more than she'd like because of her med schedule but naturally she sleeps about six hours a night
Or are they an insomniac?: No. She falls asleep, sleeps for six hours, and gets up ready to fight
Do they stutter?: Nope
Do they have any nervous twitches?: She reaches for where her laser pistol should be when she's annoyed/feeling anything and standing up. Eventually she just kind of moves into a fighting stance.
Are they clumsy?: Nope
Is there anything they do characteristically? (Play with their necklace/ fiddle with their hair all the time etc): Not really. Most of her movements are very controlled.
Do they swear at all?: Oh yeah.
Do they swear a lot?: More than the average person.
Present and future
Does your character work either full time or part time?: Eventually she kind of gets a full time job
What is your character's job if they have one?: She works in strategy
Does your character enjoy their job?: Not as much as she liked fighting but it's the next best thing
Is your character different now than when your first created them?: Kind of sort of
If so in what way?: From the first page of my NaNoWriMo to the ending she begins to learn how to talk to people. And I think that by the time I hit the middle I actually figured out what she was like so there was some amount of character flux between the beginning and that point.
Do you like your character?: As a character I like writing her because she's hilarious but she's a horrible person.
Do you think you would get along with your character if they were real?: No
Is your character based on a real person?: God, no.
Is your character based on another character, your own or otherwise?: Yeah. I had an Over The Edge character whose name was Wren that was kind of a berserker and based loosely off of River Tam and Wren later became Wynne who later became a series of other characters which steadily lost and gained personality traits and eventually I got Storm
What would your character's soundtrack be and why?(list as many songs as you like
): Reavers Chase Serenity because it's a very
fighter. It's methodical and kind of scary and awesome and it's also kind of mechanical which fits with the whole them being genetically engineered thing. Requiem for a Dream (which I know isn't the actual name but it's what I'm calling it) also works because it's again an in your face combat thing. I continuously write combat scenes that work to that piece. Self Esteem Fund because I think that when she just kind of goes blank that's what she's like.
