Characters Wanted

I'm developing a game for your amusement (and my own), but it'll work better, I think, with a larger variety of characters than I feel like cooking up by myself.

Soooo...if you're interested in participating, answer the following questions from your character's perspective.  If you're feeling creative, you can enter as many as you like.

Gender: (hey! I may not know based on the name)
Marital Status:
Weight (optional)
Eye color:
Hair color/style:
Education level:

If you care to elaborate further, like what he/she drives, favorite drink, pets, or pet peeves, go right ahead but the above should give me what I need for the game.

And if you'd like to be notified if/when your character is chosen, make sure you leave your email if it's not linked to your profile. Otherwise I will post a note on the blog a few days before the game begins.


June Freaking Cleaver said...

Name: Sarah Malnofsky
Gender: Female, last time I checked for cobwebs
Age: 64
Marital Status: Widow
Job: Retired, formerly a waitress/barmaid at White's Tavern
Hobbies: Baking, gardening, gossiping (heheheh)
Height: 5'2" (down from 5'4", gettin' old ain't for sissies)
Weight: On a need to know basis, and frankly, YOU don't need to know
Eye color: Green
Hair color/style: Gray, permed, and styled every Saturday afternoon by Phyllis down at the Golden Shears
Education level: Quit school in the 11th grade (had to take care of sick mother)

I no longer drive. My daughter Catherine took my keys after I backed over the Evans' German shepherd in the driveway.

I usually drink black coffee, perked on the stove (not in a Mr. Coffee) - but I do have a thirst for a Bud on a hot summer day.

I have a canary named Birdie. I like to talk to her while I work in the kitchen.

I hate it when the Evans' grandkids run all over my lawn, or throw their ball against the house...I don't know why they can't stay in their own damned yard.

I also hate the perfumed cards that come in my Woman's Day and Family Circle magazines. The perfumes smell so strong, I'd like to throw up. When women wear that much perfume, it makes me wonder what other smell they're trying to cover up!

Kaleen said...

Name: Katelyn (but call me Kate. Only this freaky, century-old ghost calls me Katelyn)
Gender: Female (and darn proud of it)
Age: 23
Marital Status: Why does this matter? Just because I don't have a husband does not mean I'm less of a person. SINGLE!
Job: Cafe owner
Hobbies: Mountian biking. And having my soul pulled out in my sleep to wander with the freaky ghost, apparently, but I have no memory of it when I wake up.
Height: 5'1" and 3/4 inches.
Weight: Don't know- haven't bothered to check for a while. Proboably around 120 lbs.
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: Brown. Style: ponytail.
Education level: University.

Kaleen said...

Name: Michael (Not Mike! Don't ever call me that. My bank-robbing gang members used to call me that, and I'm trying to forget my life.)
Gender: Male
Age: I was 25 when I died, and that was a hundred years ago or so.
Marital Status: Single, but would like to change that. Death does not hold me back.
Hobbies: Appearing as a solid, alive-looking apparition. Poltergeisting. Pulling Katelyn's soul out of her sleep to try and convince her to die and stay as a ghost with me forever. Trying to kill Katelyn's annoying bible-thumping boyfriend.
Height: 5'11"
Weight: Weightless
Eye color: transparent or light blue. Depends on who I'm appearing to. Katelyn doesn't mind my transparent form.
Hair color: transparent or black. Again, this depends.
Education level: (Sighs) Fine. I'm trying to forget my painful life, but I'll answer. I grew up working on the farm, but my Pa taught me how to read, write, and anything else he knew. If my rich grandparents hadn't forsaken him when he married my mother, He probably could've hired a farm hand so I could've gone to school.

I drive a black 1970 Olds 442 with a hood scoop. Nothing beats a cold Bud (or 10 or 12) on a hot afternoon. I hit the lake with my buddies every weekend, while the wife stays home with the kids. We've been married five years now, ever since she graduated. If I'd a known back then that marryin' her wouldn't stop the gossip, I wouldn't have bothered. A guy needs his freedom.
