NaNo Blog Party: Day the Second

Today we are going to introduce book characters, And we get to do it with a tag! Lalalalalala!

1.) Who is your main character? 

My Main character is Alex Gregory.

2.) What is your character's age and what is his point in the story?

Alex is sixteen years old. He is the hero of the story and he is meant to stop the Tempest and save the world from a second world war. 

3.) What does your character look like? 

He is kind of shorter, but not excessively so. He has light, sandy-blond hair and a nice smile and he has dark eyes. He's athletic and charming and just an all-around good looking kid. He's the type of boy who would be dubbed as a heart breaker when he gets older. 

Alex J. Gregory.

He is a little more blond than that picture, but it is very close

4.) What are some of your characters best qualities?

Alex is a very good friend. He will always be there for you, no matter what. He's brave and clever and and the nicest kind of nerd. He's funny and he tries to break the ice in any situation, no matter how bad it is. He likes to tease, and a little bit of that comes from him being a big brother. He especially likes making people laugh, which is another reason for the teasing.

5.) What are some of your characters worse qualities?

He doesn't like admitting he isn't okay and it generally takes a good deal of poking to make him talk about something that is really bothering him. Usually if he's under a lot of emotional strain or stress he tends to just get loud and angry and difficult to be around. He wants to protect those he loves which isn't a bad thing, but sometimes that means he pushes them out and that isn't the greatest thing in the world. He keeps a lot of problems bottled up in side of him and tends to get snappy when he has to face them. He doesn't like facing his problems. 

6.) What is one thing you don't like about your character? 

He's stubborn and idiotic. Okay?

7.) What is one thing about your character that you especially admire? 

He doesn't let people push him around and he stands up against what's evil. He has a very high idea of what is right and wrong, and he makes hard decisions and I'm proud of him for it. He doesn't get scared very often, and even if he does when it comes down to it, he will stand up to his fears. 

8.) Who is/are your side characters? (this can include the villains - antagonists- whatever)

I have two MAIN side characters. One is Sean. Sean is Alex's best friend and he is basically the second main character. he even gets chapters told from his view point and everything. The other main character is... well Death. Yes, Death is a side character. But he is more of a third-character type. He isn't really a villain. He is an antagonist. And to be honest, I kind of like him.

Sean Patrick Kellerman

I have no picture for Death. My Apologies. I looked around but I couldn't find anyone that would fit him. All I know is that he's not this guy:

Death likes milkshakes. don't judge

9.) What is your side character(s) age and what is/are his point in the story?

Sean is sixteen and he is older by Alex by exactly 36 minutes. (It's true. Sean was born at 11:25 on Saturday night and Alex was born 12:01 on Sunday morning.) He is Alex's main anchor in the story and becomes a great part in how the war is stopped and the Tempests destroyed.

10.) What does your side character(s) look like? 

Sean is pretty short, He's shorter than Alex which he finds beastly unfair since he is older than him. He is kind of scrawny and small. He has brown hair that sticks up in strange place and light brown eyes that sometimes look green if he looks up just right. He has an odd face (some would call it ugly, but it really isn't) but when he smiles everything about him changes so he's just adorable. He gets cuter the longer you know him. 

Death can take many shapes but in my story he is most seen as a young boy with dark black hair. He is dressed all in black. 

11.) What are some of your character's best qualities?

Sean is a sweetheart. He is never going through something so bad that he doesn't have time to take care of other people. He worries about everyone and is always trying to help with anything he can. He's soft spoken and quiet but if you get him with someone he really knows he opens up a little more.

Death is Death. He is kind of cynical shares bitter humor with the world.

12.) What are some of your character's worse qualities?

Sean is usually pretty solid and he tends to take things head-on. He goes with the flow and tries not to make trouble. Sometimes though, he can be reckless and if he is pushed to hard he has a terrible temper and it's harder for him to get back once he loses control. He is always trying to see the best in everyone and sometimes he is almost too kind. He'll take a lot of beatings from a lot of people before he fights back.

The fact that Death keeps popping up and won't leave Alex alone, THAT is really annoying.

13.) What is one thing you don't like about your character(s)? 

He's... I guess... he doesn't think very well of himself and that makes me sad. 


14.) What is one thing about your character(s) that you especially admire? 

Sean is very, very sweet and very quiet. Some people are silly and mistake his quiet for cowardice, but that isn't the case at all. Sean is very brave. He is a lot braver than most people would give him credit for, and he is strong in ways that Alex couldn't be. He has more of a inner strength. That isn't to say Alex doesn't - he does. But Sean has it in a different way.

Death knows how to be a good loser. and he isn't really evil. He's just death. He has a job to do and he wants to get it done. 

15.) What are your characters relationships to each other? 

Death is after Alex. Alex was supposed to die and it is Death's job to make sure his check comes do. He has to track down Alex and take him, not because he wants to or because he is evil but just because he this is what he does and he has to make sure the rules of the world our obeyed. Alex being alive causes all sorts of problems and he has to be taken care of.

Sean is determined not to let Alex die on his watch. 

This is a problem for Death. 

Death isn't a huge, big character. He does come in and out of the story but he is certainly more on the outskirts of the story.

As for Sean and Alex... Well, they have been best friends for as long as they can remember. They grew up three houses apart and for a long time they were the only two families on the entire street. So of course they bonded. Alex is the only person who has stuck with Sean all this time and Sean is very grateful to him for it. They're incredibly close and quite inseparable.
