Things that people forget about your characters (game)


So, I thought this would be a fun idea. What you do is you say things that your readers or even you tend to forget about any/all of your characters. I’ve found this happens in pretty much every book and thought it would be interesting to see what your readers forget about your characters. This can be anything from appearance to personality to family members to their powers. It doesn’t matter if they characters are your protagnist, villain, anti-hero, MC, or anything, so long as it is your own character.

Only 1 relpy per character, please, so people do not get confused. You can reply as many times as you want. Remember to say what the character’s name is so everyone knows which one you are talking about. Absolutely no nasty comments and remember to have fun! :slight_smile:

Let’s start!

Amneris Topanga

  • Her real name is Anmerankh-Karareia
  • Over 5000 years old
  • Dark skinned
  • Has a tattoo going down the left side of her face and another on her back
  • Has an accent
  • Has an adoptive father
  • Was born blind

Okay, so this didn’t take off…

  • Mothers (or) plays the “Mother” role to her friends
  • Is only good and lawful because of her friends
  • Secretly had a very wild drug fueled pass
  • Is petrified of jail or friends going to jail
  • Hides behind her stoic, bold and straightforward personality to cover up for her many insecurities
  • Has heavily repressed memories/sexuality
  • Is slowly starting to open up more to her friends but in general has her walls up to anyone else

Can I break the ‘one-character-per-post’ rule too? I’ve got too many :wink:

(Also, I like the topic! I think it’s fun. Probably doesn’t get a lot of attention because not a lot of people have loyal readers to forget things about their characters…)
