Well, for the past two Beautiful People posts I’ve done, I’ve focused on Lily, the main character of our novel, Lily. But I thought I’d give you all a break from that, since you probably know a whole lot about her by now. 😛 So meet William, Lily’s older brother.
How did you come up with this character?
Well…. It’s a kinda long story, but my friend and I wanted to write a book eons ago, and after we came up with Lily, we wanted her to have three siblings. William is one of them. (Although his name was Kyle for a while…. Lily has evolved quite considerably.)
Have they ever been starving? Why? And what did they eat to break the fast?
Yes. Quite often, in fact. William and the rest of his siblings are orphans living on the streets of New York, so they’re quite used to being hungry. To break the fast, they’ll eat pretty much anything.
Do they have a talent or skill that they’re proud of?
William is a class-A waster-of-time, juvenile delinquent, and irresponsible teenager. And THAT he is proud of, in a way. He’s quite accomplished at it, by the way. He’s one of those people who seems to always get away with everything.
List 3 things that would make them lose their temper.
Oh, that’s easy. William has a very short fuse. His siblings make him lose his temper all the time. Also, general stupidity. And thirdly, I’d say rich snobs. Or basically anyone who considers him/herself better than him.
What is their favorite type of weather? Least favorite?
Generally, he likes the classic “perfect day,” with 70-degree-ish sunny weather, with a pleasant breeze. Unfortunately for him, though, there aren’t a whole lot of days like that where he lives. His least favorite days are cold or rainy ones, since he has to suffer through them without any real shelter.
What is their Hogwarts house and/or MBTI personality?
William’s MBTI personality is kinda hard to pin down, but if I had to choose, I’d say he’s an ENTJ. As for a Hogwarts house, probably Gryffindor.
Are they more likely to worry about present problems, or freak out about the unknown future?
Probably present problems, but he definitely capable of planning ahead, too. One thing he rarely does is freak out, though.
What is their favorite thing to drink?
Probably root beer.
What is their favorite color? Least favorite?
When I think of William, I think of yellow (although that could be related to his hair color). I think his least favorite color would be brown or that rather nondescript yellowish/brown puke color…. Granted, most people probably don’t particularly care for that color, but sshhhh.
What is a book that changed their life?
William avoids reading like the plague. If we focus on a story and not a book, I’d say something action/adventure like The Lord of the Rings would inspire him considerably.
