An exclusive look at: Ramy

I was bored and thought it would be a good opportunity to try and figure out exactly who Ramy is....maybe then I'll be able to write him better. I also put him through the Mary Sue litmus test and got a 27: which ain't bad, IMHO.

1. [[What's your character's name?]]
Ramy.

2. [[How old is he/she?]]
Older than he looks. He's around 50 and looks 27.

3. [[Is your OC a boy or girl?]]
He's a MAN!

4. [[What's his/her race?]]
"A native of the Denlands." Basically means he's part of a particularly long-lived human race, for reasons not explored yet. Gosh, I can't explain EVERYTHING!

APPEARANCE

1. [[If this character were to suddenly become part of the 3D world, and ended up in a heavily-populated area, how many stares would he/she get?]]
Not many. Maybe some from silly girls.

2. [[Is your character considered normal in his/her own world?]]
Yes.

3. [[What would be his/her most recognizable feature(s)?]]
His amazing sense of fashion. "Let's, let's face it."

4. [[Would you consider your OC as attractive?]]
Yes.

PERSONALITY
1. [[Temper?]]
He's a lot calmer than he used to be, but he still gets righteously indignant rather often.

2. [[Does your character ever get depressed?]]
Sometimes, but not in general.

3. [[Leader or Follower?]]
Neither. I'm pretty sure he's incapable of leading anyone, and even more incapable of following anyone.

4. [[What is the main aspect of his/her personality?]]
His apparent shallowness.

HISTORY
1. [[Did your OC have a family of any sort? If so, are they still alive?]]
No family for him! I think they're all dead, or he didn't really know them in the first place.

2. [[Is your character out on his/her own? If so, why?]]
Yes. See, there's this thing where he's been convicted of several murders.....

3. [[Has he/she encountered any traumatizing events?]]
Again, the murder thing.

4. [[What was probably the best time in his/her life so far?]]
Back in the day when he worked for the travel agency.

ROMANCE
1. [[Single?]]
Yes. Like I said, he's kinda incapable of being with people.

2. [[Had your OC developed any romantic relationships?]]
Nope. He tried. Once.

3. [[Virgin?]]
I'm pretty sure....well...I dunno. LOL! Ramy, you little rascal!

4. [[Does your character like flirting?]]
Only for a purpose, ie, perpetuating his shallowness, getting into somewhere he shouldn't be.....

SYMBOLISM
1. [[What animal would you associate your OC with? (Sorry, no creatures of myth and legend allowed!)]]
A DRAGON! Oh, dang, no mythical creatures...lol jk he's no dragon. Hmm.....a cat? Probably, yeah. Only without all the tongue-cleaning business.

2. [[Musical Instrument?]]
This is a weird quiz.....hmmm....probably something like a clarinet.

3. [[Element?]]
I always get confused with elements, so I'm going to assume we're going with earth, fire, water, and air. Out of those, Ramy would be fire, or maybe earth.

4. [[Planet?]]
Like symbolically, or home? This category is symbolism, right? Right. So......well....hm....this is kinda hard. Probably Pluto, alone and cold, but totally awesome. Oh wait, Pluto isn't a planet anymore! Dang it.

MISC.
1. [[Do you draw your character?]]
I did once.

2. [[Do you write about him/her?]]
LOL well yes, yes I do.

3. [[Do you use him/her in any rpgs?]]
No. I didn't really think about it. Oh good grief, who has time, anyway???

4. [[What other ways have you appreciated your OC?]]
I....made him...a wallpaper? :P

RANDOMIZE!
1. [[Is your character wanted for anything?]]
Yeah, remember the murder thing? :P He's wanted for at least one murder, soon to be two more, along with a few manslaughter charges.

2. [[What are three weaknesses in him/her?]]
1) quick to distrust people and make rash decisions regarding them
2) As I said above, he doesn't normally get angry easily but when he does bad things happen.
3) He doesn't have a problem with black-market goods. Is that a weakness? I can't really think of another one.

3. [[Strengths?]]
1) One of the most hardcore Travelers alive.
2) Very intelligent: has great skills with technology
3) The few people he's gotten close to in his life he is VERY loyal to, even if he's not on good terms with them, he wouldn't hurt them.

4. [[Does your OC drink or smoke (etc.)?]]
I think he drinks. I'm pretty sure. I haven't seen him do it, but I'm pretty sure.

5. [[What's one quirk about him/her?]]
He loves oranges.

6. [[Does your character have any phobias?]]
Traveler-phobia: he avoids other Travelers. Cop-phobia?

7. [[What could you do to get him/her into a blind rage?]]
Tell him you were one of the dudes on the phone. He'll get it.

8. [[Does your OC like chickens?]]
Everyone likes chicken. Wait, do we mean to eat, or just in general? He's not an animal person, so no.

THE FINAL QUESTION
.Q. - What would you consider your relationship with your character to be like?
Uh. Is this like a personal life question, or like what parts of me are like him? We're pretty close, you know, *cough* we're like this &. Hahahaha yeah okay not funny. He's VERY fun to write. I'm not really like him, except for maybe that he doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve unless very very provoked.

Wow. have I mentioned how much I love Ramy? I do. It's true. "Is your OC a boy or girl? He's a MAN!" I love you too. hey, where can I find this Mary Sue test? because I'm pretty sure I fail. I fail, my characters fail, and my plots fail. Yeah. But I still want to KNOW that we fail.
