Character Ask

Jacob: 5, 35; Bowman: 1, 13; Elias: 3, 9; Eral: 15, 25

( From this post )

So many!  ❤  My lesser known bbys get a chance to shine, too.


5. List 3 fears; one “surface level” fear, one “repressed” fear, and one “deep dark” fear.

Surface Level Fear: He fears being clumsy around the sprites

Repressed Fear: He used to have a fear of getting so lost no one would ever find him. This has worn down somewhat, but he does make sure to bring a compass when he goes hiking.

Deep Dark Fear:  He’s afraid of forgetting what his dad was like. As the years go by, it’s harder and harder to remember, and this bothers him at the back of his mind.

35. If they could change one thing about themselves, what would it be?

Jacob is very secure in his sense of self after a lot of self meditation and such, but he knows he can always improve. He would probably try to aim for knowing what to say in somber situations, because he really doesn’t know what to say; they’re like his weak point and he might just go for an awkward pat on the back or a somewhat lame condolence.


1. What is one word to shut them up?

If that’s even possible with Bowman, haha. In all seriousness, it’s not a word but a threat against his wings will definitely give him pause. Not a very long pause, mind.

13. Which of the 7 Deadly Sins best describes them?

Pride, for sure. Bowman is super proud of his wings and his skills. The other sins don’t really fit him much at all, either. Wrath is a solid maybe, but he’s really just all bluster.


3. What is the worst pain they’ve ever experienced?

Elias has been in a lot of fights, and some of them were pretty bad. He would say that the worst pain was a gut wound, one that nearly wiped him out completely. However, the actual worst pain he’s dealt with was more metaphysical. In Imperfect Storm, he had a good deal of his divinity ripped out of him. It hurt deeply, even if he didn’t recognize it right away.

9. What is their greatest physical weakness?

This is a tough question for a character who’s already so strong as a baseline. But, as a mortal, Elias has plenty of weaknesses. However, in his canon, there is a material called Korvasin Grey Metal that would cause many of his demigod magics to flee for a time, and that would leave him really vulnerable.


15. Who do they hate the most?

He hasn’t encountered them again since he met them, but he hates the poachers who came into his forest and killed pretty much every other arbor pixie with a misfired magical trap. It wasn’t meant for them, but that doesn’t stop him from resenting these people, and the fact that they took him away after that doesn’t help either.

25. Have they ever been betrayed by someone they thought they could trust?

He used to travel with a group of adventurers before he met Elias. One of them actually sold him to a black market at one point, and he almost didn’t manage to escape. When he did, there was some hell to pay.
