Who inspired this character?Luci, or Princess Alucinora of Iror, was obviously inspired by the titular character of Sleeping Beauty. The original didn't have much personality, so I had lots of room for invention.
What is their weapon of choice?
Have they ever been physically violent with someone else? What instigated it?
Are they more of a rule-follower or a rebel?
What kind of child were they? Curious? Wild? Quiet? Devious?
Where would they go to relax and think?
Do they have a temper?
Would they be more likely to face their fears or run from them?
Hadrian will think it over quickly, make a decision, and simply muster up the courage to face his fears, even if they haunt him deeply.
When they are upset, do they turn to other people or isolate themselves?
Luci shuts everyone out and hides in the castle's library, back hallways, or her chambers. Only Aleida has a chance to get through to her when she's upset.
Hadrian would turn to other people if he had them, but true friends are few and far between in his life.
Say 3 things about where your character lives (as broad or specific as you like).
Luci: She lives in the upper Branch, a steep mountain range in the kingdom of Iror. Her castle is old and majestic, a blend of her father's unshakeable personality and her mother's worn beauty. Her country is struggling financially due to the outlawing of spindles.
Hadrian: He resides in the heart of Bauglind, a kingdom of rainstorms and humidity. His palace has been decadently renovated by his ogress stepmother, at the expense of the people. His country's wealth is severely unbalanced, due in part to the rich/poor divide, and to the support Bauglind lent to Iror in recent times.
