Week three of character development for Amilee has arrived! I’ve filled out more of the questionnaire and shared it with you here. I don’t have a story for you all this time, dear readers, due to some bigger things in the works for my character here. Check back next week for said bigger things!
Are they a daredevil or cautious? Cautious.
Do they act the same alone as when with someone? Definitely different. Alone, she is clearly more comfortable in her own skin. With someone, she subtly tries to adjust her mannerisms to match the person she’s with.
Habits: she paints her nails so she can pick it off, otherwise she picks at her nails.
Drinks: Tea, or sometimes coffee with Bailey’s
How much: Once in a blue moon.
Greatest Strength: Perception
Greatest Weakness: Insecurity
Soft spot: People who act/are broken.
Is their soft spot obvious, why/why not: She puts up with a lot from people she thinks she can help/fix.
If not, how do they hide it: She doesn’t really hide it, but she doesn’t really admit to it, either.
Biggest Vulnerability: She doesn’t trust easily, but she does put herself on the line for people she hardly knows and it does come back to bite her from time to time.
Hometown: Smalltown, MA
Type of childhood: Relatively normal and boring (in her opinion).
First Memory: Bouncing on her uncle’s knee at some kind of ball game.
Most important child hood event that still effects him/her: A brutal bully in elementary school explained to her in detail how worthless she was.
Why? She took those words to heart. She was 13.
Education: BA in Medical Technology
Religion: Vaguely Christian. Not very religious.
Finances: Still paying off student loans.
Mother: Victoria Leroux
Relationship with her: Good. Mother can be a bit overbearing. Constantly asking when she’s going to get married and make grandbabies.
Father: Anthony Leroux
Relationship with him: Better. Father always believed in her and is actually pushing her to go back to school for something she loves – journalism.
Siblings, How many, relationship with each: She’s an only child.
Children of siblings: N/A
Other extended family: Grandma, unmarried uncle on her father’s side.
Close? Why or why not: Not close, but not distant, either. They exchange birthday and holiday cards and see each other at family gatherings.
