By no means do you need to answer all of the questions.  This list serves to create a multi-faceted, complex character that feels real and relatable.  Although it caters more to table top gamers, my fellow fan-fic writers and other artists can easily adapt certain terms to fit their needs.  The most important thing is to have fun.  My Deviantart is ArqethStoneweaver.  This is the only thing there as of this creation.  Scythe Song is my usual gamer tag.  Enjoy.
