Cerulean

Recommended Posts

20Q

1. Where is your hero from?

Boston, Mass.


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

She’d say tall, curvy, and cute.   Blonde, blue-eyed, kinda casual.  Others might use terms like ‘chunky’ or even ‘fat’, but she’s nowhere near obese.

 

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

 

Does she ever!  If you say something that happens to be a song lyric, she will sing the next line of the song.  If you say something that happens to be a line from a movie, she’ll continue the scene.  If nobody happens to say something relevant to a situation, odds are good she’ll figure out something appropriate to quote anyhow.


4. What is your hero's motivation?

 

A combination of responsibility of power, youthful enthusiasm, and a subconscious urge that she’s supposed to be out, doing things.


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

 

Cerulean is almost invariably upbeat – she doesn’t know how to let something get her down.  She’s highly mobile, and to her eyes her light strips away all concealment, disguise, and illusion – it’s very difficult to sneak past her.  On the flip side, however, she can be impulsive, and is very likely to run at the mouth when it isn’t appropriate.  She’s inexperienced, and her fear of heights significantly limits the utility of her flight capabilities.


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

 

Food is, really, even better than most people give it credit for.  Yum.  Quite a bit of a geek, she loves pop culture references (and the chance to bust out ‘I understood that reference!’).  She hates people who lord something they have that she doesn’t over her, and bullies, of course.  Everybody hates bullies.


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

A little overwhelmed – she’s still getting used to all of this.  That typically translates into overexuberance and hyperactivity, but she can sometimes get snappish under stressful situations.  It’s all very exciting, though, and she’s definitely having more highs than lows.

 

8. What does your hero fear the most?
 

In terms of visceral fears, heights are high on her list (no pun intended), although having to deal with water that’s more than chest deep also gives her the willies.  More abstract, although she doesn’t even really admit it to herself, she fears doing something that will result in harm coming down on her family.

 

9. What is your character's greatest ambition?

 

Oh, gosh.  At the moment, she’d love to be some big, famous, world-saving hero, but she hasn’t had the shiny worn off her new powers as of yet.  That might be an ambition that she could come to regret having.


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

The world is an amazing ball of chaos that needs constant attention to keep it from being sent off the rails.  Her world has just changed and put her into a position to be one of those doing the nudging, and she thinks that’s hella awesome!

 

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

 

Eileen doesn’t think she has any prejudices, but that’s often the sort of thing that needs to be pointed out to a person before they realize it.  She is, almost invariably, a good-natured, cheerful person, and tends to get along with most people until/unless they demonstrate to her why they’re not worth her time.


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

 

Eileen’s priorities are, firstly, to herself – ‘to thine own self be true’, and all that.  That doesn’t mean she’s selfish, necessarily, but she’s going to think twice before selling herself out.  She’ll think more than twice about selling out her family; in fact, it’s one of the few conditions under which she might compromise herself, in order to protect them.  Apart from that, she hasn’t really had much opportunity to form any relevant loyalties – that will come.


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

 

New to town, still in her teens – nope!


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

Eileen does, indeed, have family – family she is close to, since she lost her father years ago.  Both her mother and her older sister know about her new powers, and were both onhand to drop her off at Claremont for training and schooling.  They don’t live nearby, so they won’t be coming to visit all that often – but at Cerullean’s flight speed, even staying low because flying high is scary, they’re at most only half an hour away.

 

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

 

Goofy.  Silly.  Friendly.  Cheerful.  Full of useless information.  A bit of a spaz sometimes.  Outspoken.  Loves food.


16. Is your hero a role model?

 

Uhhh, not yet?  Maybe possibly in the future?  Scary thought!  But...if it means little girls aren’t starving themselves to look like magazine models, then sure!


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

Eileen isn’t really spiritual at all.  Religion isn’t a part of her life.

 

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

 

Not part of a team yet, but that would be totally awesome!  The backup, the banter, the bases – what’s not to love!  That’s what it is to make it big as a super hero, getting invited onto a recognized team.  Right?


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

 

They’re pretty much like any other celebrities, with the exception that they’re usually acting to aid people, rather than entertain them.  So, kinda a step above?  It’s definitely something to strive for.


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

 

Don’t get so caught up in the ‘wow’ of being a hero that you forget the whole point of being one.
