20 QUESTIONS

 

1. Where is your hero from?

South Boston, Massachusetts

 

2. How would your hero physically describe him/herself? Is this different from how others would?

Wiry, with a runners' lean physique and long legs. About the same. 


3. Does your hero have distinguishing speech characteristics or recurring mannerisms?

The Southie accent and slang is hard to miss, typically coming out in full force when he's stressed.


4. What is your hero's motivation?

At the moment, graduate from rookie so he doesn't have Doc Tomorrow babysitting him. Other than that, try and reconnect with his family and maybe make some friends in this era. 


5. What are your hero's greatest strengths and weaknesses?

Scrappy determination. He'll pick himself back up even when he should stay down. Contrariwise, his mouth gets him in trouble more often than not. 


6. What does your hero love? What does your hero hate?

Gnomon loves Boston, The Red Soxs, his family, and enjoying the little things in life. He hates the Yankees, dingbats who interfere with timeline, and bullies. 


7. How would you describe your character's mental and emotional state?

Good. He got a lot of hard lessons learned when he was stuck in the temporal loop that was meant for Zeitgeist. He learned a lot about himself for better or worse. 


8. What does your hero fear the most?

Waking up stuck in the loop again. He doesn't know how many iterations he went though. Doctor Tomorrow and the Time Keepers refuse to tell him and he has made his peace with not knowing. 


9. What is your character's greatest ambition?

He'd like to get his dad to stop being Scrounge, but he knows in his heart of hearts its a futile effort. He also wants to reform Techbane, but that's going to be a tall order. 


10. How does your hero feel about the state of the world and his/her place in it?

The world will keep spinning one way or another, for better or worse. He's seen the future and the past with his own eyes and he's more concerned about making sure that there is a tomorrow present than anything else. 


11. Does your hero have any prejudices? How does he/she get along with others?

He dislikes people who have second chances and blow them by not even trying. He is gregarious and enjoys carousing with others. 


12. Where do your heroes loyalties lie? In what order?

Ultimately, his loyalty is to the timeline. He might put family and friends in front, but from experience it's more often about keeping the train on the rails. 


13. Does your hero have a lover or partner? How do they feel about the hero now?

Yvonne Parker. Met her in juvie and they clicked. Just if he could get her to stop being a black hat hacker. 


14. Does your hero have a family? What is the relationship there like?

Yep. Older sister who is studying to be an actuary at FCU. His mom and stepdad are in Brooklyn. He's trying to repair his relationship with them. So far it's going well. His birth father is better known as the villain Scrounge, and that relationship is a lot of disappointed accepted from Gnomon towards his father. He has Grandparents in Boston, and step-grandparents he hasn't met yet in Maine. 


15. How would the people closest to your hero describe him or her?

He's a mouthy punk who is laid back and carries himself confidence and braggadocio. Lover of pop culture, living large, and possesses hair trigger snark. 


16. Is your hero a role model?

No, and he's okay with that. He knows that he'll be relegated to the footnotes of history, but being a Guardian is important. 


17. How spiritual is your hero? Does your hero follow a religious tradition?

When you work with literal beings from beyond time and space, you tend to get jaded and blase about religion. 


18. Is your hero part of a team, or would he/she like to be? Why?

He's one of a few Guardians of Time. He likes being able to call on the occasional backup, but would prefer a partner to watch his back rather than a team 

 

19. How does your hero feel about the place of metahumans and aliens on Earth?

They exist? Really, he doesn't care all that much. 


20. If you could give one piece of advice to your hero, what would it be?

Sometimes the best thing to do is to do nothing, even when you feel the need to do something.
