1. Which OC would accidentally get married?
Accidentally? I don't think really any one would accidentally get married. But I suppose if it is anyone, then Sam would because she is normally always following her heart and if her heart led her to Vegas with Brandon then that would be just fine.

2. Which OC is a picky eater?
Would you believe Jason? Granted he isn't the best and cooking, but he prefers to stick to things he knows he likes rather than trying something new. Unless Serena made it, then he might....MIGHT...try it.

3. Which OC would get stuck up in a tree?
Probably Matt, but as a joke. Say he was all scared and then have Nate come up and get him down and be all heroic.

4. Which OC has same-sex parents?
None of my characters do. Although I wouldn't have been surprised had I made Matt and Darren's parents same sex.

5. Which OC uses a lot of emojis when they text?
Sam and Jasmine. Granted they are in two different universes, but both of them are typical girly girls.

6. Which OC fears big dogs?
Jasmine. She doesn't care for large dogs like a Great Dane. But she would take a little mini poodle.

7. Which OC would collect seashells from the beach?
Sam. Because she loves the beach even if she doesn't live near one.

8. Which OC had braces in high school?
Xavier. Yeah, gang boss millionaire had braces as a young teen.

9. Which OC says they're not scared of horror movies, but jumps at every jump scare?
Sam and Jasmine. Course if they both have their own mans next to them, then perhaps they will play it up just a little bit.

10. Which OC isn't scared of jump scares?
Xavier, Matt, Gavin, and Jason. They have all seen a lot of stuff that makes it so they don't jump easily.

11. Which OC would trip over themselves trying to walk in heels?
Gavin, Xavier, Matt, and Jason. Three of them might be into guys, but they certainly can't wear heals. Gavin even tried to one Halloween and failed miserably.

12. Which OC would eat pineapple on pizza?
Xavier would try it. He wouldn't be opposed to it.

13. Which OC tries to stay out of trouble, but trouble always seems to find them?
Probably Matt and Gavin. Cause both of them seem to attract those ambushes and end up getting shot.

14. Which OC can run in heels?
Jasmine and Sam. While both girls don't always wear high heels (especially Sam), both of them can run in them if they need to.

15. Which OC would attract random animals?
Xavier. Says the man with three cats and a puppy right now. XD

    • 1. Which OC would accidentally get married?
      Either Riley or Vanessa. Both of them aren't strangers to alcohol or getting wasted and making such an agreement while heavily intoxicated shouldn't be put behind them. Riley cares little about what people think of her and Vanessa has enough power and money to easily get rid of such a predicament and move on with her life quickly and without making a scene.

      2. Which OC is a picky eater?
      Definitely Luisa. She cares too much about her image and will often turn down many types of food to keep her illness at bay.

      3. Which OC would get stuck up in a tree?
      It may be Connor; even though he is built to be fairly athletic, the youth is quite clumsy and would probably climb too high in order to clear his mind before realising that he couldn't get back down without any help. Not that he would ask for it.

      4. Which OC has same-sex parents?
      No one. All of them were born and raised by families, which had both a father and a mother.

      5. Which OC uses a lot of emojis when they text?
      Riley. She is an expressive girl and likes making sure that people know about her good mood. She will also create various unknown words in order to reveal her excitement about something; most of her text messages are filled with more emojis than letters whenever she's really happy. Some of them are almost impossible to understand.

      6. Which OC fears big dogs?
      Again, Connor. He doesn't like big animals and prefers to keep those, which couldn't be very dangerous to adult humans.

      7. Which OC would collect seashells from the beach?
      Luisa and Torsten. She likes having fragile things in her possession and taking good care of them; it makes her feel whole again. As for the Viking, he often uses them to create jewellery for someone he respects or simply brings them back for the children to play with. Torsten has a good eye for aesthetics, even if it does seem unusual for a man like him.

      8. Which OC had braces in high school?
      No one. Two of them were born when braces weren't invented and the others didn't need them.

      9. Which OC says they're not scared of horror movies, but jumps at every jump scare?
      Luisa. She likes pretending to be brave, but will often reveal that it's the other way around, especially when she's watching older movies with less blood and more psychological horror. Though, a quick cuddle usually makes her feel better.

      10. Which OC isn't scared of jump scares?
      Ray, Vanessa and Torsten. They have seen too much unfairness and death in their life to be moved by something unreal and impossible. If anything, the trio appears like the people, who would give many others nightmares for a couple of lifetimes.

      11. Which OC would trip over themselves trying to walk in heels?
      Torsten. He was born in a time where high-heels weren't a thing and would find the shoes incredibly uncomfortable.

      12. Which OC would eat pineapple on pizza?
      Connor and Riley. They don't care much for what they eat and actually like having a lot of pineapple on a Hawaiian pizza.

      13. Which OC tries to stay out of trouble, but trouble always seems to find them?
      Ray and Vanessa. They aren't necessarily aggressive people unless something provokes them. While Ray tries to stray from open conflict, Vanessa initiates it whenever it's needed. Still, even the woman wants to have a day of peace and quiet every now and then, but it often happens the other way around. There's rarely a serene day in their lives.

      14. Which OC can run in heels?
      Luisa, Ray, Riley and Vanessa. The three women wear heels quite often and don't mind rushing while doing that. Ray is an assassin trained from a very young age to move around using whatever he can, thus walking or running in a pair of high-heels wouldn't come as a big obstacle for someone like him. Though, it would prove to be fairly uncomfortable.

      15. Which OC would attract random animals?
      Ray and Torsten. The pair of men respect the nature around them and don't want to hurt it if there's another way to reach their goals. They often choose to tame the animals, which approach them, and later use the critters for their own gains while taking good care of them. Sometime later, of course, the feral beasts are released to the wilderness once more.

          • You're a dragon who enjoys living a peaceful life away from humans when one day, a princess shows up asking you to "kidnap" her so she doesn't have to get married.
            -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
            Peeking inside of the eerie cavern made her shiver. Dressed in thick green robes, she felt the chill biting at her skin; it wasn't entirely because of the cold autumn weather. The cave brought a wave of uneasiness to the girl; there was no decent source of light anywhere, which made her feel even more anxious about entering. Rolling her shoulders in a poor attempt to feel in control of her emotions once again, the brunette stepped forward with a thoughtful, uneasy look on her face. It had been a stupid decision to visit the forbidden cavern and disobey her mother's wishes, but something had to be done about this.

            "Dragon?" Her voice sounded meek as the woman called into the darkness, silently hoping for the beast to notice the plead in her words. She had no one else to go to with her problems. "Answer me, I beg of you! Only you can help me."

            For a moment, everything was still. She couldn't hear anything else from her quiet breathing, which soon quickened as the girl waited for the creature to emerge from its den. Finally, a grunt echoed from the inside of the cavern and the ground shook under her feet. It took a couple of moments until the dragon's large head became visible and the creature looked at her quizzically, baring its teeth as a sign of dominance and power. The youth didn't move an inch from her position, but another violent shiver ran up her back, causing the brunette to wince at the stupidity of her plan. Her mother had been right.

            "And to whom do I owe this pleasure?" The beast spoke, its words laced with sarcasm. "The princess herself has come to visit us. After leaving my master and his comrades to die in the battlefield and exiling us from the capital, she dares to even think of approaching my lair. I should burn you for this display of ignorance, Sybil Godfrey. Explain yourself."

            "Kyran," she didn't try to mask the amusement and shock in her voice. "I have not come here to argue with you today."

            The black-scaled wyvern narrowed its bright orange eyes, snorting quietly as he moved to the side, allowing a slender and pale man to emerge from the depths of the cavern and stare at the brunette. She could have remembered him from anywhere; the familiar black hair and bluish-green eyes were embedded into her memory for what seemed like an eternity. The man known as Ray Hawthorne had once been her closest friend and protector. But now, they were strangers. Letting her blue gaze slide over his appearance, the youth couldn't withhold a quiet gasp as she noticed that his right arm was missing. The sleeve of his armour was empty, stitched to the top of his shoulder instead of loosely hanging by Ray's side. It was her fault.

            "You should not be here, Princess," the two hadn't called each other's name for a while. "It is dangerous for a woman of your position to wander alone. Many dangers lurk inside of these forests; it would be a shame if you got hurt by someone."

            "I'm capable of looking after myself, assassin," she replied quietly, averting her eyes from Ray. "However, this doesn't concern you. I've come to speak with your dragon and see if he wishes to make a deal. You may leave us alone."

            A cruel, teasing smirk found its way on the cripple's pale lips as he leaned against the dragon's side, glancing up at the large beast and then sighing; the Princess hadn't changed much since the time they had spent apart from each other. She was still a stubborn person, who yearned to make things go according to her wishes. That hadn't changed even after her coronation and the sudden attack of the barbarians. He knew that it was also because of the guilt Sybil felt because of her actions and how they affected the guild's existence, but that was no excuse for the decisions she had made. Her wish to keep things at least somewhat peaceful between them and the Empire had left Ray crippled and the assassins lost any respect and trust that the public still offered. They were chased out of the town's walls and she did nothing to stop it from happening. How petty.

            "It seems that you have forgotten about Kyran's obedience to my words," his words were calm and quiet, but the man's eyes were full of anger. "He listens to me, Princess. If you want our help, you will speak with me directly or leave this place."

            "Very well," she hissed quietly, narrowing her blue eyes at the man's pleased smirk. "My mother wishes to create another marriage; and while her choices are respected, I don't want to settle down just yet. I've come here to ask for a simple favour of your dragon; let him pretend to kidnap me and hide from the capital's watchful eyes until my mother realises that I'm not just a tool to be disposed of. Do this and I will do what I can to bring back your honour."

            "Are you daft?" Ray's words had quite a bit of a bite to them. "We have lost everything because you did not agree to aid us in our wish to keep France safe. Our people were branded as criminals and forced to run from the city. If I let Kyran do this, we will be hunted for months. You have made questionable choices in your life, Princess, but this has to be the most stupid of them all. I will not endanger my companion and family to aid your wish of escaping your duties. You wanted this, no?"

            The young Princess stood there, watching as the black-haired man climbed on his dragon's back, ordering Kyran to leap into the air and leave her alone. In a way, she understood his reasoning for not bowing down to her wishes and accepting the offer of coming back inside of the capital's walls. However, Ray had been the one to tell her to always seize the opportunity and do what she could in order to achieve her goals. Now, he was going against his own advice. It hurt, but it was fair of him.
