I found this questionare from hereLet's start – what's your FC's name?
Stephen Hunter KingIs the name a play on words of any sort (eg; name meaning matches the character's personality)?
No, not really. But I named him after Stephen King, my favourite horror novelist. And Hunter I chose because it's a name I love. Although, it does also suit the fact that he's a werewolf, and loves being one.What universe did you drop them in?
Harry Potter.Does your FC have any attributes to match the universe they are in?
Yes, he's a half-blood wizard.Appearance?
Friendly face, intense eyes, big ears, and really cute smile with dimples. He's got black hair usually in a swishy/spikey style, his eyes have strong brown, greenish-gray, and clear blue when looked really closely but usually appear just brown/green. The blue takes completely over in his wolf form.
Around and after age 9, up until early 20s, he may easily be mistaken as two or three years younger than he really is. Because at age 10 he's the size of an average 7-year old and therefor also his voice sounds like one. And though his growth does pick up speed back to normal at age 10, the onset of puberty is delayed even outside the normal range. (Average onset of puberty is around age 12 and even the late bloomers usually onset at 13,5-14 years old - but Hunter's onset is at age 15.) As in, at age 15 he looks and his voice sounds like an average 12-year old, at age 16 like a 13-year old and so on. (This is because the monthly werewolf transformations impacted his growth rate for a few years, he grew only one year's cents in three years, pushing his rate to the lowest ranks of normal range. Out-of-normal delay of puberty is also because the werewolf years messed with his body since age 7. All that is my personal werewolf vision and individual choice for this character, as in is not canon to the universe.)
At fully grown, in early twenties, he'll finally look his age again - though he'll be short, only 168 cm...Had it not been for the wolf he would've grown to be tall like his dad.
The looks come from a certain celebrity whom I imagine him to look like, but their growth rates are of course different as my charactar's is made-up for my vision.Any special powers overall? Weapons?
Well...first I'd like to stress that all these powers mentioned in this paragraph are canon to the universe, as in standard or advanced skills of any witch or a wizard. But they can still be called special powers, as magical blood in that universe is rare.
So, yeah, he is a wizard, therefore he can cast spells and brew potions, and in late teens he learns to apparate/disapparate which is a magical form of teleportation - just faster. In time he'll also be able to "read" other people's thoughts, memories and emotions related to those memories and correctly interpret them, by intruding their minds - but this is actually a special form of a spell...And there's actually a whole lot more one could do with people's minds, such as to alter or erase/repress their memories...or even one's own. That is one of the creepiest aspects in the Harry Potter universe. The "mind-reading" (really can't be called that as it goes so much deeper than just thoughts)...is an ability better practiced by very powerful/skilled wizards and witches. But my character is such, although he's still not among the best in that mind-read skill. But he is remarkably skilled in closing his mind against this magical form of intruding.
He has no weapons if his wand isn't counted as such.
Hm, I guess I could also mention that he has heightened sense of smell, hearing and eye vision all year round. (Not canon but part of my personal werewolf vision.)What about weaknesses?
His love for werewolves is too passionate and blind for his own good. (Those whose minds may have just gone into the gutters, you can drag them back up. It's nothing like that and never will be.) It's a kill/death-risk/mental-health/emotional-capacity thing. But I love him deeply, so I'm giving him relatively bright future.
Also, the delayed puberty affects his originally high self-esteem remarkably during teenage years, but as it was originally high and he has soem good friends and supportive family, it probably won't be too terrible. But of course the matter of delayed puberty itself will make his teen life remarkably more complicated than it normally would be.What's their relationship to the main cast? Are they friends/relatives with any of them?
Not ralated to, not even almost. His godparents' last name is Potter but I usually point out that they're not related to Harry.
The decision I made right from the start is that even if I link my characters to a chracter from the books they will never be close enough for my characters to get much involved in the books' main plot. Some distant invlolvement may become unavoidable for several reasons but really nothing major. Because I prefer keeping my original characters walking their own paths, bringing alive other parts of the universe's story and leave the books' plot to the books' characters.
Hunter meets Harry Potter in the end of summer of '91 before they start Hogwarts and they do become friends. Hunter drops out of Hogwarts at the end of the first year for personal reasons, but the boys keep owl posting each other and visit each other and hang together on holidays.
Harry may even spend some weeks at my character's home instead of Ron's, as the books don't say that Harry'd been at the Weasley every single holiday.
But as said they won't become so close that Hunter or his family would have any part in the big events of the war or anything like that...I'm not even sure if Harry will ever learn about Hunter's werewolfness. Also, the plan is that Harry's family will never be told that the King family are magical folk, although the Dursleys may think less of them simply because they like Harry.
And because my character and his family live a very muggle-like life style and think of Harry as just a boy who for some mysterious reason survived something no one else ever has...I believe their friendship may offer grounds for exploring Harry in a different light.
He also befriends Remus Lupin, who's also a werewolf. They have such a huge age difference and they're not all that much alike so they likely won't become close, but the plan is that they'll become nonetheless true friends and important persons in each others' lives. Hunter might be the one to pull Remus out of his depression and lonely ways and to introduce him to the ways of the current society. Hunter is only a little boy when they first meet, and Remus is his first and for a long time only werewolf friend and as Remus is nice and loveable personality, his eventual death will hurt Hunter deeply. How about with the bad guys? Is your FC working against the good guys with the villains?
No. Basically and for the most parts, he's "Switcherland". He isn't interested in fighting the war on either side particularly, but mainly worries for his own family's and friends' safety and tries to contribute to its benefit. But, if it came down to participating in the war on more than personal life level, it'd be on the good guys' side. He may go through his dark times as his werewolf love tempts him, but he is his father's son at heart. (His dad is a very proficient police officer/former detective, and it's not just a job it's a calling. Not to Hunter though, but he's very proud of his dad.) So yeah, at the end of the day, Hunter's relationship with the bad guys is: an enemy. Any love interests or crushes going on?
Not yet. I'm currently focusing on his childhood, and his first love won't come along until his teens. And it certainly won't be anyone from the books, I prefer creating original love interestes for my own characters.Does your FC have any hobbies? How do they spend their free time when they're not getting on with the plot?
He's a hopeless (and good) prankster, loves movies (especially horror), reads books (horror, fantasy, adventure, and detective novels), plays football and baseball with friends, generally just spends time at active play.
And he sings. He may take random chances to perform but mostly he does so in events held by family or friends or his school. He's also in the Hogwarts Choir during his only year at the school between the ages 11 and 12. In my vision the Hogwarts Choir is not just polyphonic but partially homophonic, so I could add my character in it as his singing voice texture is homophonic. Actually he's not really the choir boy type, but it was an interesting chance to sing (even in Latin!) so he wanted to try it and he did well. After all his voice is powerful and special enough to stand its ground in a choir. Here
is a sample of it.
But he won't join any choirs after Hogwarts, as it wasn't as fun as he'd thought it might be but will continue single performances at events by family and friends and so on. He was taught voice control and helped keep his voice strong, by his school music teachers and his godmother.What's their biggest fear?
It naturally changes as life situations do and maturity develops. This character is still in his baby shoes when it comes to his development, therefore I haven't decided his bigGEST fears yet.Is your FC a good samaritan or the neighbourhood douchebag?
Neither. I think he's one of those children you''d come to like or love if you got to know them better, because at his best behaviour he can be very sweet and polite, respectful and clever, and he has a rich imagination...to mention a few things...But you probably still wouldn't envy his parents because he's also very spirited, hard-headed and complicated, and in addition all the issues the wolf brings.
Such as how by age 12 he has developed empathy/compassion issues towards strangers...(which is not canon to the universe, just part of his personal development)...
He could never be called a douche but he certainly isn't that other end case either.Someone is most likely going to find your FC humming to:
-Their most overused word/catchphrase?
-Every character has a theme song/tune! Pick one for your FC!Here
- (from him to his father)
Should that link ever stop working, it's Nickelback's "Savin' Me".Uh oh, the main cast has to fight your FC for whatever reason. Pick a kickass boss theme for your FC too!
Well, I couldn't find anything with lyrics that would fit well enough, so here
.Is your FC helping save the world with the cast, or are they hanging around doing something unrelated in their own time?
The last mentioned, as refered to in the answer to some earlier questions. He's focusing on his own life and demons as much as he can seeing to that it is
a war going on duting a few years of his mid-teens, and especially when his muggle-born mother must leave the country for the family's safety.The world is saved, with or without their help! What's in store for your FC now?
That's too far for me too see at this point. ^^
+ He filled out a Childhood questionare
when he was 12.
And his dad filled out a Family and Parenthood questionare
that same year.
