The following serves a few functions: Character development, if needed, or just a fun activity to pursue involving your OC. Some guidelines to follow:

1. Answer the following questions from your character's point of view. As such, the answers should be written in a first-person ("I") format.

2. Feel free to throw in your own answer, if you feel that the answer is incomplete. Yes, you, behind the fourth wall.

3. Since this is supposed to be fun, I'd prefer it if you and your character could minimize the bad language, so that everyone can enjoy these.

4. Have fun. Otherwise, there's really no point. Get into your character's head and have at it!

5. Anyone can use this template. But, please, make sure to reference the source. If you don't...

6. Begin.

Character's Name: [Insert Name Here]


Part I: Let's Start at the Beginning...

1. What's your name?

2. Give me your full name...

3. Do you have a nickname? If yes, what is it and how did you come to have it?

4. What species are you? (Human, werewolf, etc? Or are you an alien?)

5. Where/when were you born?

6. I see. And that would make your age...?

7. Okay, now...are you a good guy, or a bad guy?


Part II: Tell Us More About Yourself...

8. How would you describe your personality?

9. Would you say you're someone who can handle pressure?

10. Do you like to read?

11. Favorite color?

12. Do you get along with others?

13. Do you have any enemies?

14. How about friends?

15. Are you patient?


Part III: Hypothetically...

16. Suppose that you could become any creature you know of. What would you pick, and why?

17. One of your enemies in question 13 just complimented you. Response?

18. One of your friends in Question 14 just insulted you. Response?

19. If you could change anything about yourself...

20. About your home...


Part IV: Now We Get Personal

21. What're your parents like?

22. Do you have any siblings?

23. What's your occupation?

24. I see, that's a good job to have. Do you like it?

25. Are you seeing/dating anyone?

26. Thinking about getting engaged, married, other?

27. Tell us your biggest secret.

28. Your worst fear? You don't have to answer this one if you don't want to.

29. Favorite food?

30. Favorite drink?

31. Tell us one thing you're the most proud of.

32. Something embarrassing? You don't have to answer this one, either.

33. If you didn't answer Questions 28 and/or 32, tell me why.

34. Is that a good reason?


Part V: Breaking the Fourth Wall
For these next few questions, I'll briefly remove the fourth wall between your world and your creator's. Try to remain calm.

35. Before I remove the fourth wall, tell me: would you be willing to accept the fact that you're actually a character?

36. Now the fourth wall's gone. Response?

37. This is your creator's world. What's the first thing you notice?

38. You just met your creator! First impression of him/her?

39. Okay, let's put the fourth wall back. See, that wasn't so bad, was it?


Part VI: Closing

40. Are you satisfied with your life?

41. Anything you feel like you have to do? It can be something long-term, like a bucket list, or something you need to do right now.

42. Any hobbies?

43. Quick, you get one wish! What did you just wish for? It's alright, you can tell me...

44. How would you describe that wish? Good? Bad? Selfish? Selfless? Other?

45. Have you been honest with these questions?

46. Your personal quote?

47. Do you like change?

48. What's your most valued possession?

49. Anything else you feel like sharing?

50. Last question!...yup, that's it! How do you feel?
This was inspired by a character interview by :iconthe-bone-snatcher:. Be sure to check out his version, as it was fun to do that, too.

Anyway, just an OC quiz I made. Should be fun for some, maybe it'll catch on. I hope. Anyway, to anyone using it, thanks a lot. :D

Oh, and in case somebody doesn't know, what I mean about the fourth wall is that normally characters aren't aware of the creator and/or that creator's world. By "breaking the fourth wall," a character becomes aware of those things.

Enjoy.
