Just a place for me to dump outlines of characters I particularly liked. Names are subject to change, as are other minor descrepancies. These are just generic outlines of personalities, and as a result, most of these will be somewhat vague with the descriptions.
Full Name: (Self-Explanatory)
Appearance: (Includes clothing if I feel like it)
Nationality: (Country of origin and ethnicity)
Personality: (What they like, are, and how they act)
Skills: (What they are and aren't good at)
General Bio: (A brief synopsis of what their bio usually entails)
Notes: (Other things)
Full Name: Alan Gemcity. (Referencing NCIS and Alan Wake in the same post deserves me a medal.)
Age: Middle-aged, around 42 usually.
He is about 165 pounds with an average build at approx. 5'11" height.
Personality: While people say age brings wisdom and maturity, that doesn't make it mutually exclusive with Alan's rather brash attitude. He's smart and logical, but a lot of his actions are more arrogant and brash, and he tends to be rather blunt in conversation. Not that he acts entirely like this, though. He still is mature. That just doesn't stop him from being an arrogant prick a lot of the time. He's also surprisingly suave and a bit of a womanizer when he wants to be. So, he does tend to act a bit younger than his age, but some say that's just his charm.
Skills: He's good at lecturing people and yelling at people, but so is anyone as old and arrogant as Alan. More seriously, he's a good writer, and actually very persuasive. Also, he has a lot of experience in the world, so he knows a bit of everything when it comes to carpentry or first aid. Obviously, he isn't about to build a log cabin or perform open heart surgery, but he can build a bookshelf or staunch a wound, among other things. He can also sew, which he defends as being a very masculine skill. He's not good at much involving combat, however, as he has a bad back.
General Bio: Born rich and arrogant, he stayed that way through much of school. He's had a rather successful social life, and he became a prolific writer when he was about 21 and wrote his first book. He wrote a sequel years later, and it became a bestseller. Since then, he's been racking his brains for inspiration, but hasn't found any. Also, he did have a wife, but they were together for a tumultuous 7 years before divorcing at 28 for him. He's had a bit of luck with the ladies since then, but has been unable to settle down.
Notes: Has a bad back, so don't expect him to do much heavy liftin'.
Full Name: Catherine Rola. Shortened to Cat or Cathy on occasion.
Age: Young woman. Anywhere from 18-22
Appearance: Average height, average weight. (eg. 5'11" and 127 lbs.) Mostly lithe build, but with some muscle. Hair is a pure red to match her firey personality, and is usually short and scraggly or in a ponytail. Never longer than shoulder-length, though. Also, slightly crooked nose due to fights.
Nationality: Almost entirely Caucasian, but has some Spanish somewhere down the line, hence the last name being Rola.
Personality: By default, she's somewhat friendly, yet cynical, and makes sarcastic remarks quite a bit. She enjoys a good joke and a laugh. However, she is well-known for having a very short fuse and very explosive temper. Minor comments can cause her to lash out verbally at times, anything more can cause her to do it physically.
She is, however, a nice person at heart once you get past the rage, which, luckily, doesn't last long.
Skills: She's great in a fist fight from quite a bit of experience, and can use melee weapons as well. Also, while she is somewhat nice, she can also be underhanded, and is pretty good at sneaking around and even lockpicking to an extent. She is also a decent cook, surprisingly.
General bio: She was born as a second child to a mother that was happy for her and a dad who wasn't. She doesn't get on good terms with her dad, who favors the older son/daughter more, and he also drinks quite a bit, causing him to verbally lash out. She eventually fights back, and the two stop talking, almost completely ignoring each other's presence even if in the same room. Also, Catherine has a history of violence and other petty charges, growing up the way she does.
Notes: Probably one of my favorite characters, as she's a blast to write with. (Combat scenes are fun!) Also, she is bipolar, hence the quick to anger, quick to calm attitude.
Full Name: Mary Hopshades.
Age: Young woman. 20-25 or so.
Appearance: Slightly skinny build, not much muscle. Shoulder length curly dark brown hair, and green eyes. Basically:
Nationality: Vaguely Irish, though is quite the European mutt.
Personality: Normally happy and cheery, but is extremely naive and quite childish. Also prone to go into a weird, overly logical and unemotional state if under extreme emotional or mental duress, as her way of coping. She is also quite stubborn normally, but avoids physical confrontation at almost any cost.
Skills: She is a great runner, able to go for extremely long distances, and is decent at parkour. She is also very intelligent despite her naivety. However, she is very prone to peer pressure.
General bio: To explain her childish and naive behavior, she lived a very sheltered and censored home. Her family was rich, but also very conservative religious individuals. If a modern RP, she is very good with computers and went to college for them, and joined track in school when pressured to by her family.
Notes: Nothing especially noteworthy.
Full Name: Elizabeth "Izzy" Lesko
Age: (again) Young woman: 20-25
Appearance: Long, blonde, curly hair and a round, cute, younger-looking face that portrays her somewhat eccentric and childish attitude, and she almost always is smiling. She is also a bit short at 5'7" and quite thin at 115 lbs. She wears a black to dark-gray fur coat on top of a red wool sweater, giving her quite a contrast, along with slightly baggy jeans and a pair of combat boots. In steampunk RPs, she wears goggles, and in warmer environments she ditches the coat and sweater for a white tanktop.
Nationality: Generically Caucasian, and mildly Irish.
Personality: Izzy's a bit eccentric, and very blithe. Very nearly nothing dampens her mood, which can get grating on others sometimes. Oddly, though, she isn't the type to talk too much and in fact is a bit of a minimalist in that department, as she's fine being happy on the sidelines most of the time. Occasionally, she can get angry, which, while rare, is legendarily frightening as she has a fierce temper, when she does get angry.
Skills: In a steampunk environment she's a decent sharpshooter and a great pilot for whatever form of transportation is prevalent there, whether it be air- or water-ships. Otherwise, she's a mechanic. In any RP, she's quite intelligent and a fast learner, but has a small frame making her quite weak.
General Bio: She's basically a tomboy that grew up in a rich family. She hung around the guys a lot, and while she was rich she was never really a spoiled brat. (sorry if this one's short, but Izzy's a bit more open-ended than my other characters and can be fit into any RP with a bit of tweeking)
Notes: None really.
