Additional Notes on This Character: 


Theme Song:
This has been getting a sudden rush of interest lately, so I went ahead and updated it. It is now a little easier to look at, I arranged the questions a bit better, and I also added a few. Happy profiling!

This isn't the biggest list of questions out there, but this is what I think that you should know about your character and, if there are things that you don't that still do apply to your worlds, that you should perhaps figure out. It'll go a long way to helping to develop them.

If you have any questions, let me know.

What does hand-to-hand capability mean? 
Reply
:iconjadeookami:
Jadeookami Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Such as Martial Arts ability, or street fighting. Basically, how good are they at fighting with their hands, without weapons?

melmal3 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015
Not the author, but I would say that the hand-to-hand is probably implying combat.  How well do they fight without using long-range weapons like guns?

Usually people think of hand-to-hand like a fistfight, or martial arts, or a knife fight.

Hi, this template is really awesome. I was just wondering, under 'Basic Statistics', what do you mean by 'reason'? I'm really sorry if this is a stupid question.
Reply
:iconjadeookami:
Jadeookami Featured By Owner May 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's not a stupid question. When I first uploaded this it wouldn't really allow me to format it correctly, the 'Reason' tab is suppose to be indented. It goes under 'nickname', and you're suppose to list the reason they have the nickname you list, if there is any particular reason.

When you say "Element" under abilities, can you state exactly what you mean?
Reply
:iconjadeookami:
Jadeookami Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
For this you can take or add things your character specifically needs. Some people have a fantasy element to their character and the most popular thing is giving them some kind of actual element (fire, water, wind, air, ect). So if it applies you can add that their, which if they have special abilities with it, ties in with the special abilities part.

Or if it's a completely normal character, you can say which one they remind you of the most (Or if you like the zodiac, their zodiac element). Or you can take it offt he list entirely.

Completely up to you.
