Character Development Meme: Kendrew, Shang, Eluned, Pania

52 19 Days To 52 Weeks

For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related every day.

Today: parts of a character development meme!

16.) Are there any blood relatives that your character is particularly close with, besides the immediate ones? Cousins, Uncles, Grandfathers, Aunts, et cetera. Are there any others that your character practically considers a blood relative?

Kendrew was raised by his father and his father’s partner, a man he considers to be a second father to him. He doesn’t know his mother at all, and frankly always assumed he was a sperm-donation surrogate pregnancy sort of thing (he wasn’t, but there was some Hugr and some Ambrus involved in his conception).

In addition to his fathers, he lived near his father’s parents, and was particularly close with his grandfather Joe, and with his father’s youngest sister Amelia. She acted as a mother figure to him when he was younger, and as a buddy and confidant as he got older.

His fathers have a younger daughter as well, Brynja, but the age difference is great enough that Kendrew finds her an annoyance, rather than a close relative.

He already has a son, but his fathers don’t know about that.

17.) What’s your character’s desk/workspace look like? Are they neat or messy?

Shang’s organizational style is “piles;” his piles are very tidy, but to an unaware observer, it looks like, well, piles of papers (and other things) all over his desk. His first week of Addergoole, he actually found the furniture storeroom to requisition a second desk, to give him more room to organize things. He has piles – often more than one – for each class.

His clothes, similarly, are sorted in hampers/milkcrates/coat trees.

18.) Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)

Luna knows three dishes when she comes to Addergoole – tuna-noodle casserole, rum cake, and chicken pot pie. She likes making these three quite a bit, though, and once she starts paying attention, as she’s encouraged to, she comes to realize that there’s building-out from all three of those recipes to be done, to more varied dishes.

19.) What’s your character’s preferred means of travel?

Adie likes trains. She really, really likes trains. On the other hand, she really, really, really hates airplanes, which explains why she’s a pale and nauseous mess when Wylie meets her at the airport.

She likes cars, too, enough to know the classics, but her real fascination is with trains. She collects accurate model trains but dreams of some day owning her own rail car, or maybe even her own rail line. She doesn’t know how to drive, yet, and really has no interest in learning.

These are all new characters to Ag Year 9; tonight, you can ask them anything.
