Q.P. Reference Sheet

After weeks of stalling and dealing with online classes, I finally made an official reference sheet for Q.P.! It was hard trying to find the proper size, since I want it to be big yet tolerable enough for my computer could handle. Hopefully, the text and images show up well.

Name: Q.P.
Sex: Male
Age: 12
Birthday: February 2
Height: 144.375cm (4'9)
Weight: 41.4kg (91.2lb)
Hair Color: Pink
Eye Color: Cerise
Likes: flowers, speaking his mind, shades of pink, shades of cyan, wearing shorts, fairy food, his caretaker Atsushi, blue moon ice cream, compassion
Dislikes: flattery, relationships, idols, superficiality, being called cute, being called a femboy, being told to "grow up", conformity, sympathy, society in general
Hobby: Origami (he likes to make flowers the most)
Personality: Q.P.'s childlike presence hides the mind of a cynic who lost all faith and trust in the world. Once cheerful and confident, he now questions his own existence and believes that others would only acknowledge him if he constantly belittles himself or just disappeared. His sensitive nature and androgynous appearance cause disdain among other people, going as far as to refer to him as a worldwide atrocity. In spite of his negative reputation, Q.P. refuses to let others control him and never hesitates to stand his ground, even if it means throwing a brutally honest remark.
Backstory: Q.P. was born from a blue flower that grew during the Happy Child Incident. After wandering through the night alone, he was later found and taken in by Atsushi, a mysterious golden-haired youth. The two eventually formed a parent-child relationship and spent their years pondering over the little things in life. By the time Q.P. reached the age of five, Atsushi gave him the Prismflower, a rare flower species distinguished by its iridescent petals, as a symbol of their special bond. Unfortunately, those happy times were cut short when Q.P. witnessed a bunch of individuals clad in black and gold robes take Atsushi away. Not long afterwards, Q.P. got captured as well and started spending the rest of his life in a prison cell. There he endured many forms of torture and was kept in isolation for seven straight years, until his captors had enough and decided to execute him. Q.P. was drugged, tied up, and led to the gallows on the fateful day, until a young man named Roni jumped in and saved him. With the Prismflower as his only sign of hope, Q.P. now begins his search for Atsushi and the Prismflower petal bearers.

Bulletrose The flower in Q.P.'s hair is a blue poppy.
Bulletrose Q.P. doesn't like being called cute and femboy because both words make him feel more like an object than a person.
Bulletrose Q.P. actually looks terrible in dresses.
Bulletrose Q.P. used to enjoy singing, but due to past experiences, he has stopped.
Bulletrose As of recently, Q.P. resides in a nonphysical plane of existence and can only be seen by those who believe in him.
Bulletrose In spite of his cynicism, Q.P. finds those who despise love and peace disheartening.
Bulletrose Q.P.'s most prized possession is his Prismflower, which he can use as a weapon.
Bulletrose Q.P. currently lives in a little blue cottage that houses several roommates, including a quick change artist COCO and a robot named 2.P.
Bulletrose While he doesn't get along with anyone, Q.P. specifically has a bitter relationship with other androgynes and those who perceive themselves as unique.
Bulletrose When depressed, Q.P. encases himself in an invisible force field.
Bulletrose Q.P. has his own story called The One and Only Flower in the World.
Bulletrose Q.P. stands for "Quintessential Pueraeternus".
Bulletrose Q.P. is cleithrophobic.

So why doesn't he like sympathy or flattery? Also does this in anyway represent you in real life?

In anime terminology, Q.P. would be considered a trap (a convincingly feminine male character) and most characters like these are often perceived and/or portrayed as jokes (something I personally despise, regardless of intention). The reasons why he doesn't like flattery and sympathy is because he doesn't want to be perceived as a victim or someone desperately seeking for attention; plus, the morals and laws of his own universe forbid him from seeking help because doing so is considered a sign of weakness and he is naturally deemed an atrocity due to the fact that he doesn't fit his character type's ideal mold. Does that make any sense? Forgive me if it sounds confusing. If you're not sure what I mean, that's what The One and Only Flower in the World, a story that serves as Q.P.'s backstory, is for.


And yes, most of his traits he has are from my own personality while others came naturally as I was developing him. One thing's for sure, we're nothing alike in terms of physical appearance (e.g. he's a boy with pink hair and I'm a girl who doesn't).

I think that would scare him off more than encourage him. It'll be no different than forcing him to "man up", literally and metaphorically. ^^;

Okay, maybe not screaming, but what about just saying "I love you"? (platonically), or at least telling him that seeking help doesn't make him weak, in fact it makes you strong because you're not afraid to reach out to somebody.

He might get confused on what you mean by "I love you", since in his story's universe, the word "love" is mainly used for romantic reasons and he's not romantically interested (asexual, if you prefer). Q.P., however, does have a mantra that he follows: "Love yourself for who you are, not what others want out of you"; of course, the word "love" in this case is used in a platonic sense.

Well that's nice.

The mantra also reflects my personal bond with Q.P. He originally started out as a typical shy and sweet character who's determined to get rid of the stigma surrounding the word "shota" (yes, he was that kind of generic character), but when I first introduced to other people, he got so much hate either (because he was a shota, trap, or simply because he was a young boy and not a teenager or adult or a girl) and I started doubting whether I should change Q.P. to make him more "likeable" or just scrap him completely. Those experiences had an impact on Q.P. as well, reducing him to a cheery compassionate boy to a childlike cynic. This mindset became his personality for about a year or so, until some people started asking me more genuine questions about Q.P., in which I was more than happy to answer. I eventually began opening up more and more about my troubles surrounding the character, but instead of putting me down and bashing Q.P., those people were very understanding and even gave me some supporting feedback on him as well as myself. This newfound realization later helped me develop Q.P. into the character he is today, still cynical but with a more believable personality and goals that others and I can personally relate to. Simply put, even if the majority of people find Q.P. unappealing, it doesn't mean I should change him to suit their personal tastes. I'm Q.P.'s creator and therefore I know what's best for him. And personally, I love him just the way he is and wouldn't change him in any way (design, personality, etc.).


Sorry if I'm starting to sound too egocentric. I don't usually talk about Q.P. this much, since most people don't really ask. ^^;

That is the most depressing story I've ever read. And not being allowed to seek out help is just cruel! And what do you mean "his own universe"? Also I'd be aggressively trying to make him feel good, whether he wants it or not. Basically I'd be like "LET ME LOVE YOU!" Almost like yandere, but without the shrines and stuff.

MaryKosmosVer2's avatar

I meant the universe of The One and Only Flower in the World, which is the universe he resides in. There should be a link to the story in the description; its formatting is a bit funny, since it's originally a visual novel that I'm currently working on. If interested, you can check it out.

Okay, did you see the "LET ME LOVE YOU" comment? I kind of have a complex where I break down when I'm unable to help somebody else feel good. I think it stems from my persecution complex.

MaryKosmosVer2's avatar

I saw. And don't worry. I get that feeling sometimes as well. ^^;

pookiesaurus4's avatar

Yeah, I have a verbally abusive alcoholic dad.

MaryKosmosVer2's avatar

Yikes. I'm sorry to hear that. Hope things are well for you.

It sure does! Love all his different outfit as well!

Thanks. He's got a lot of outfits, but these are the ones I typically use. Though I sometimes get carried away when it comes to creating alternate outfits. ^^;

just recently, I have been told that Suiran's design was super adorable in the comic! :D
MaryKosmosVer2's avatar

Thanks. What I'm most concerned about is his info, since I want to make sure I have the essentials when it comes to biographical information.
