5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.

My love.

We are led by Tyrande Whisperwind, who also commands the Sentinels.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?

Fight well.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
I already have it.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
Some home-schooling and a short stint with the druids, but I'm mostly self-taught.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
...Intimidated?

Crowds.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
I just stab things. They can worship whoever they want.

My childhood friend, Lyra. She was my only friend, actually.

29. How athletic are you?
Extremely.

30. How methodical are you?

Taboos?

Oh. Uh...

- We'll come back to that.

32. How much traveling have you done?
Enough to say I've been around.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
My lack of social skills, my lack of smarts, my lack of humor and my lack of skill with guns.

47. How gullible are you?
..?

- I'll just put 'somewhat'.

48. How intelligent are you?
Not very.

49. Does the end justify the means?
That depends on too many things to answer outright.

50. How attractive are you physically?
Ask the nearest woman for an answer to that. How would I know?

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
A glorious death in battle (particularly against another warrior). Sacrifice for something you care for perhaps as well.

52. What do you worry about the most?

Jessica "Fauxpaw" Derrington

1. List four things you like very much.

> Wealth
> Security
> Loyalty
> Information

2. List four things you dislike very much.

> Ignorance, my own or others
> Lack of control
> Judgmental folk
> Anyone that harms children

3. Did you have a happy childhood?

For a spell, I suppose. It's about to seem very angsty momentarily, however..

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.

The kidnapping and ensuing murder of my younger sister. This event set my life on a path that could not be altered from that point forward. Being born a sociopath and having nothing of consequence happen, this clearly triggered something deep within my psyche that I've been unable to deter.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.

Catatonically depressed and weak; always sleeping or moping. She was barely a mother, as I had to raise my sister for her.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.

He left for other women, so I rarely met him. The last I saw him was after my sister -- I believe I creeped him out. Now that I think on it, what ever did he see in my mother?

7. What are you favorite pastimes?

Preparing for the future, checking my ledgers, observing and listening, investigating.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?

My mentor from the shadows, who shall remain unnamed.

9. How do you feel about sex?

It is both a useful tool to get something, and cathartic.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?

The Gilneans worship the light like most other humans.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?

I believe the Light functions as a less efficient form of magic that you access by really, really believing in it really hard, as opposed to just practising it. In short, it's not important to me at all.

12. How are your people organized and led?

Gilneans are proud to a fault. If you're not the alpha of the pack, as it were, you allow yourself to be trampled over.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?

Genn Greymane is a monster of a man who should be disposed of at everyone's earliest convenience. But apparently I'm the only one that remembers the terrible things he's done.

14. What is your philosophy of life?

Survive, by any means necessary.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?

Tsst. The Crown of Stormwind, I suppose, so Varian would stop being an incompetent fool?

16. Have you any physical difficulties?

All my life I've suffered from occasional nervous breakdowns or bouts of psychopathic tendencies. The former tends to happen when things go out of my control, the latter simply.. happens.

However, most prominently and due to recent events that resulted in an untreated wound, the nerves in my left leg have died to the point that it is mostly immobile and numb to function and feeling, except when it has the urge to throw me into unbearable pain.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?

I went to class like most children in Gilneas, taught by the schoolmarms.. when my sister disappeared, so did my official education. But I've always had a penchant for self-teaching, and have done so rigorously, regardless.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?

This generally falls into two camps. 1) Wariness. I like to exert an air of intimidation and bluntness that rubs folk the wrong way. This is so that people who aren't worth my time don't bother me. 2) Pity. Whether they see me hobble on my limp leg and cane, or they learn of my sociopathy, many folk take it upon themselves to let their pity for me known. I despise it and attempt to curb the notion as best I can.

19. What are you proudest of?

My donations to the orphanage of Stormwind and the collection of missing children's cases I've solved.

20. What are you most ashamed of?

My oversights.

21. What is your deepest fear?

Having my fate taken out of my control.

22. How do you feel about food?

Food is delicious, but I don't show my enjoyment of it to others. As a worgen, my ability to taste has been severely reduced.. so I do my finer dining as a human, which I refuse to show to anyone.

23. What makes you feel good?

A job well done, I suppose.

24. What do you dream about?

Little.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?

Dying would be a good option.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?

Those who go out of there way to alter my own destiny and attempt to make choices for me. I can generally contain it, but some times, someone special combines ignorance and stupidity with the former and really sets me off.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?

The plight of the Gilnean is pitiable. The curse is a tragic affair that can reduce a man or woman to a feral nature, leaving them bereft of civility. It is not a kind sight, and I have nothing but respect for my fellow worgen.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?

I mentioned this prior. I had met my mentor as a pup on the streets.

29. How athletic are you?

. . . . .

30. How methodical are you?

To a fault.

31. What are your chief taboos?

I make it a point that nothing is out of my purview, if it is necessary. My name is Fauxpaw, for crying out loud!

32. How much travelling have you done?

Gilneas, to Teldrassil, to Stormwind, and a few outlying areas. Not much compared to most.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.

I killed my sister's murderer after a plot that took more than a year to enact. Or is that simply vengeance?

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centred person?

Extremely so, but that is not a fault.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?

Not even in the slightest. Everything is a contract to me, relationships included; trust is borderline impossible for me to achieve, as it requires far too much personal risk.. unless I'm getting something from you, and vice versa, we will likely not reach beyond acquaintances.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?

I maintain many contacts and relationships with multiple people. In that sense, yes, I am popular.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?

No. On Stormwind, maybe.

38. What is the purpose of your race?

To exist and survive, like all others.

39. How artistic are you?

That depends on how you define 'art'. Drawing pictures and writing? I am not very creative. But I am an artist when it comes to developing traps and lock-triggers.

40. How do you feel about material things?

Everything has its use, most important of all being currency.

41. What are your plans for the future?

Increase my wealth, cast my net of contacts, and protect myself and my partners.

On the side, I will continue investigating unsolved missing children's cases.

42. How idealistic are you?

My primary goal in life is to safe and survive as long as I possibly can. This is unattainable in the end -- everyone dies --so in essence that makes me the most idealistic person out there, technically speaking.

43. How realistic are you?

Cynically so. I see the worst in everyone, at all times, because it is safer to assume as much.

44. How successful are you?

Many small victories over the course of my life. Very successful, but my failures are massive.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.

Ignorance. Brash behaviour. Malicious intent simply to be malicious. Unnecessary suffering.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.

My crippled leg. My lack of fighting capabilities. The overwhelming feeling of everything is going to crumble.

47. How gullible are you?

I like to think I am hard to trick, but it has happened before.

48. How intelligent are you?

I will let you be the judge of this.

49. Does the end justify the means?

Nine times out of ten they do.

50. How attractive are you physically?

My ferocious, unwavering attitude is reportedly attractive to those with weaker wills.. I am constantly baffled at men's attempts to woo me. Physically, I'm ungainly and wounded, damaged goods as it were, but this doesn't seem to matter. But I suppose men will go after anything with a pair of tits. Or people have a fetish for the disabled..

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?

Nothing is worth dying for. We have one life, and I'm going to spend mine wisely.

52. What do you worry about the most?

That I've forgotten something obvious or small that will lead to my failure. Also, dying.

53. What makes life worth living for you?

Simply being alive is enough. But I do get satisfaction from fine dining, counting my coin, and reaffirming a solid contract.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?

That good is more marketable.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?

Richer than the person I was yesterday.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?

That authority is incorruptible and never makes bad choices.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which discouraged?


I suppose peace between the nations of the Horde and Alliance would be in our best interest, and foster a rich economy. So lets go with that.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?


That all warlocks are inherently evil and never to be trust under any circumstances, since their motives are unclear. Their motives have always felt clear to me, and I view them as people who take on risk to gain power and knowledge. Very clear cut and dry.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?

When someone stands to gain power, someone else is surely losing it.

60. How do you feel about violence?

I am unwed and barren.

Re: Character Development Questionnaire

Postby Tideraiser » June 16th, 2014, 4:52 am

1. List four things you like very much.
- Ah!—The gift of nature has always been a fascination of mine, of course—from the smallest rabbit to the largest tree. Errr… books are also interesting…. Perhaps one last thing that I like very much is moonberry juice. Nothing is as delectable. The last… is rather private.

2. List four things you dislike very much.
- I do not like cruelty. It is an act of utter malevolence. The same can be said for dishonesty—not to mention organizations such as the Warsong Clan and Twilight's Hammer, that act solely to fulfill their own selfish and ill-meaning plans.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?
- My childhood was a quiet and lonesome one. Ennui is common amongst the people of small, seaside port towns—even when you live in such a place for over a hundred years. Of course, there were always those that enjoyed partaking in the silly tittle-tattle of the neighborhood, or causing uproars at the inns. It was a safe and stable city, at the very least.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
- I do not always like to admit that my brash curiosity took the best of me as a child. Books were funny little things that frequently placed me in troubling situations with my sept—my thirst for knowledge occasionally sent me prowling away from my bedroom and into libraries, where I could peer into fascinating titles and scrolls. Books... some were lists of facts, and others were lines of narrative—each so very unique and captivating… which is more than can be said for the crates of fish that awaited my father’s furnace each moonfall at the tavern.

Sometimes he would find me reading from volumes of knowledge at wisplight, during ungodly hours when everyone else was sound asleep. Though the other elven adults were often kind enough to lend me their simple books and novels (each insightful and unique in their own way), it was those that were forbidden that so often attracted my deviant attention! Needless to say that my actions were sufficiently reprimanded—not only for my disrespect, but also because of the stigma surrounding magic and other taboo topics within night elven societies.

Even then, I continued to attain knowledge of the arcane at whatever opportunity I found, and with what little resources there were available to me at the time. Soon enough, I began to practice what was transcribed within these tomes, in spite of the fact that I had previously avoided doing so in fear of being discovered. I was but thirty years of age at the time—and no, my age does not excuse my foolishness… but alas, it holds some weight.

The many words of power that I learned were wondrous—not easy to master, but wondrous all the same—and I happily persevered, in thirst of knowledge and ability. Yet, in spite of my efforts, many of my tries at magic failed—few spells were simple to master, and only with a lot of effort did I ever accomplish anything that I could have truly deemed impressive.

Finally, after a triennium of quiet self-instruction, my elation for the arcane arts quickly blew up in my face—in the most literal sense. An attempt at a complicated spell went wrong, and I was immediately flung backwards by it with a loud bang that rented the atmosphere.

After the rumors of the incident had spread across Auberdine, other kaldorei within the town grew distrustful of me. I was but a seedling then; yet, they feared that I would grow to become much like the Highborne magi that have virulently torn their way across our people’s history. This, my neighbors needed not express in words—their paranoia was evident. Other elven youngsters were known to have experimented before I, and so it was that there were indeed many that had aged to become what their younger selves had once heralded: wielders of an art that has been misused, and therefore, mistrusted. I was very unsettled by the attitudes that my own kindred adopted towards me from then on, and even now, I would never dare try such a risky spell again if the circumstances did not call for it.

It was not long before the neighbors marched into my home and forced both my progenitors and myself out of town, weapons in hand. They did not harm us, but even in peace, we were not allowed to stay. My mother and father lost their positions at the inn (do I have to discuss their attitudes towards me from then on?); we shifted to the nearby Ashenvale.

In spite of my grievances, I consider the experience nothing short of a blessing. The others at Auberdine grew less weary of me once they had heard that I had begun training under the priestesses of the moon. They even allowed an’da to continue his work at the inn alongside my mother.

Away from home, I learnt to balance passion with caution. The growing silver upon my scalp was a testament to the transition that was in order. It is true that I was left forever changed by that event.

Now, perhaps, I have become too cautious, given the years that have passed and the events that have transpired. Nonetheless, I always strive to maintain an emotional equilibrium in everything it is that I do, and that is the lesson that I was fortunate enough to be graced with.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
- My mother was a pyrite node in the rough. Stone-faced and distant, easily angered, yet undeniably warm when she sensed someone was in need of her compassion. Allyndia was her name; she was pink and her eyes were like those of a nightsaber’s. She did not follow a structured path to greatness; instead, she spent most of her life alongside my father, who cared much for the Auberdine inn he worked at. Once, she longed to be a Sentinel, but cast away that dream in fear of failure and the unknown.

Nevertheless, my mother possessed many skills. She was a well-versed armorer and jewelcrafter, her sets rivaling those of even Grondal Moonbreeze. Not to mention her aptitude for herbalism that greatly augmented her cooking! Oh, those windplum salads were a favorite of mine.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
- My father, Taldan, was much like my mother. His tender insides were encased in a forbidding shell. Yes, he was kind and soft-spoken—but this was not always. It was common for him to lash out at my mother and I at the end of a workday. Not physically, but verbally.

Mother, like so many other kaldorei women, was fiery and brazen. She did not stand for his behavior. Their arguments were numerous. Still, they remained in matrimony. They truly loved one another, regardless of their ways.

My father was a paradoxical man that cared deeply for his family. He was heavily eroded by the dreary and monotonous routine of his job, but never wished to tell me why he had not pursued another occupation instead….

…Ah, and he was doe-faced, with blue skin and blue hair.

<She fidgets.>

Perhaps we should change the subject, now.

7. What are your favorite pastimes?
- I enjoy exploration and sight-seeing. Reading is another pastime.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?
- It is hard to say. Ryoka is a strong candidate.

9. How do you feel about sex?
- Speaking of w—that question seems hardly appropriate!

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?
- The kaldorei venerate Elune, our Moon Goddess. She guides us through the night, and grants us strength when the cause is just.

There are others, as well: Malorne, Cenarius… I shall spare you any excess details and say that Malorne is known to be the lover of our Mother Moon, caring for Azeroth’s forests under her light; and Cenarius is their child, the prime warden of nature, which we night elves strive to protect at all costs.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?
- I do my best to uphold the beliefs of the Priesthood of Elune. I cherish all life on Azeroth, and would fight to protect it if I had to.

Still, there are many that jump at the opportunity to slay an orc or behead a goblin. I have found that such actions only contradict our oath to loving and caring for life. Not every “green-skin” seeks to taint our thickets. Not all goblins live solely to feed their own greed. It is only those beings that permanently threaten Azeroth’s blood that I seek to rid the world of. We must protect these lands we live on—its people, its flora, its fauna. This is of utmost importance!

12. How are your people organized and led?
- Ah—our people fall under the banner of the Sisterhood of Elune, an ancient order. Tyrande Whisperwind, a woman that many kaldorei like myself idolize, is one of the earliest members of the Sisterhood. This organization serves as the backbone to our government, providing both leaders and followers to our causes. Tyrande is poised and very much adamant about keeping not only the night elves safe, but the Alliance, as well.

Archdruid Malfurion Stormrage is Tyrande’s beloved, serving his people by her side. He was taught many years ago by the ways of Cenarius, the forest lord I mentioned before. Malfurion slept many centuries at a time, anchoring his consciousness within the realm of the Emerald Dream to guard the place from any that might disrupt its peace.

Both Malfurion and Tyrande led an offensive against the Burning Legion and their hosts nine thousand years ago, before the Sundering of the world. Though they were unable to avert the catastrophic fragmentation that followed, they successfully drove away the forces that so hungrily threatened Azeroth, and later rebuilt the society that we night elves have come to cherish and appreciate. Without these two kaldorei, who knows how different our world would be to this day?

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
- As expressed, I am very much grateful for our leaders.

14. What is your philosophy of life?
- I believe we should make the best of our lives, upholding a just cause and fighting for those that also seek to protect it.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
- My parents, in life as they once were.

I might come across as selfish for desiring this. In truth, I regret that any of Xaxas’ victims ever came to harm—that I was unable to steal them from their fates. But it is my family that I wish to see again the most.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?
- I often fall prey to headaches.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
- My education was offered to me by the moon priestesses throughout northern Kalimdor. Besides learning to wield the mystic might of our goddess, I was trained to hold my own in physical combat, and both skills have been immensely helpful.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
- I cannot say for sure.

19. What are you proudest of?
- That I have helped people at times when they saw no hope.

20. What are you most ashamed of?
- I was not a very amiable elf during my childhood.

21. What is your deepest fear?
- Being rendered useless.

22. How do you feel about food?
- A necessity; though, other beings should not have to suffer at the hands of your own hunger.

23. What makes you feel good?
- That is too broad a question, I think. There are many pleasures in life.

24. What do you dream about?
- Crows.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?
- At the primal level, death seems to be the answer to this question.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?
- Witnessing the suffering of others is something that is both saddening and infuriating all at once. I tend to keep my wits about me during times of rage, but when I simply cannot any longer, “admirable” is not a word that can be used to describe my subsequent behavior.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
- Lest I find someone harming or interfering with the wellness of another person or thing, I try to leave others be.

28. What one person had the greatest effect on you as a child?
- Certainly, my father.

29. How athletic are you?
- My current job position entails quite a fair amount of physical activity. Nonetheless, I enjoy the occasional sprint or swim.

30. How methodical are you?
- Quite! Another trait a medic must put to use.

31. What are your chief taboos?
- Most have been covered at this point.

32. How much traveling have you done?
- Not nearly as much as the bulk of my kin.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.
- Ah... so there I was, trotting alongside a lake, when an infant murloc approaches me. Fish bones in hand, he points to my staff, pleading. In shock of the murloc’s friendliness, and aware of the trade he was commencing, I hand him my staff. Glee in his face, and his stature belying his strength, the murloc skips away with the staff and the fish bones. I was endeared by his cunning trickery, but this did not last long. A bear emerged from the woods and began to chase the amphibian.

In fear of getting mauled, I set for the woods. But something stopped me in my tracks. I could not leave that murloc to his bloody doom. Whirling around, I seized my scaly friend and ran as fast as my legs could urge me. The bear pursued us with all of the fervor of a hungry youth when I made a sharp turn in the thicket. Finally out of sight, the murloc and I arrived at a hillside where a small twig pile was buzzing with the sounds of some high-pitched gargling.

There, I witnessed that the murloc had intended to use my staff to construct a home for his younger siblings, who were still far too young to fend for themselves. He stripped the staff and drove the foundations into the soil as I added straw to the makeshift roof.

Unfortunately, it was later made clear that the bear I thought outmatched had indeed found us. A roar burst forth from the edge of the forest, and that was when I was forced to turn my blade against it, in spite of my fear. Though I resulted with wounds, and regret for having to put down the beast, I will always look upon that day with pride and joy.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?
- Ah. For years—decades, in fact—I thought myself too important to associate with others. I did not give my love or character to those that sought to know and understand me well. For a long while, my family was the select few that I allowed into my own realm of thought; even then, their habitual aloofness made me weary, driving me into my own silent solitude. I was, in all frankness, a self-centered person—I cared little about those around me, preferring the world of seclusion that I wrought.

Of course, there tends to come a time during a person’s existence when she realizes that she is but one small dot out of millions on a map, that her world is one of many. This recognition did not come swiftly to me, but it suffices to say that when it did, I was humbled.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?
- I do.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?
- I reckon the little “incident” with my use of the arcane might have fabled me as a notorious mage throughout Auberdine. I was eschewed for ten years. That I turned to the Temple of Elune surprised many.

<She smiles longingly.>

There are few left from Auberdine who would remember me.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?
- I can only pray for that to be so. A positive influence, of course.

38. What is the purpose of your race?
- I cannot say for sure what was the intent of our makers. I can only say that many of my people seek to carry out the wishes of our beloved Elune.

39. How artistic are you?
- Ah, I am afraid that I am at a disadvantage when it comes to art.

40. How do you feel about material things?
- They are certainly not very important, lest it be essentials like food or shelter (I have never been very selective in regards to the latter).

41. What are your plans for the future?
- To continue serving the world whichever way I can.

42. How idealistic are you?
- Perhaps to a fault. I have to clear my head from the mists of the clouds, at times.

43. How realistic are you?
- I try to be true to myself and to the world around me.

44. How successful are you?
- Many of the goals I have set for myself have been accomplished, but my work is never done.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.
- Unkindness, dishonesty, vulgarity, and obstinacy.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
- My idleness, melancholy, and sometimes-inappropriate frankness are all things I object to in myself when they arise. I cannot say I enjoy being this tall, either. Long legs are a burden, I tell you.

47. How gullible are you?
- If I have given you my faith, I would say I am quite easy to fool.

48. How intelligent are you?
- I do not know how to answer that.

49. Does the end justify the means?
- I cannot adopt that notion.

50. How attractive are you physically?
- <She scoffs, slightly blushing.>

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
- A trite remark, indeed, but love is always worth dying for, and it seems my whole life has been leading up to that.

52. What do you worry about the most?
- I worry that I am not fulfilling my duty to the world.

53. What makes life worth living for you?
- The world is a fascinating place. Not one thing can sum up the answer to that.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?
- I believe that evil people are characterized by their immovable tendencies to (willingly) wreak havoc and destruction. Good people seek to do quite the contrary…. But those are just my considerations on the matter.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?
- Decisiveness would do me well during times of doubt, and a sense of peace would not hurt when I am feeling unhinged. A person of action and humility—I try to be so.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?
- Cruelty. Murder. Needless dishonesty. These are more actions than they are ideas, but I think it can be said that ideas become actions, in the long run.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged, which discouraged?
- The Vale of Eternal Blossoms: a place that was, up until a short time ago, sealed away from the rest of Azeroth (and rightly so). It once nourished everything around it so that all would thrive in its boughs, never to fall prey to corruption.

What was once a beacon of hope and harmony is now a shattered wasteland, any life that remains fastened onto the slightest thread so that it may yet survive. Its fertile waters have been twisted by an unknown malignancy. It is said that Garrosh Hellscream has unleashed an ancient horror unto the land that once was so pure and in bloom.

What I have seen during my recent work at Pandaria has been monstrous. Only arrogance and brutality could account for the atrocities wrought upon that magnificent place. These are the actions and ideals that I cannot condone. Peace is long overdue. It is the ideal that we should all strive for!

I can only hope that we shall succeed in restoring the Vale back to the glorious precinct it once was.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider potentially dangerous?
- The heedless manner in which many races currently practice their magics is a worrisome sign, indeed. Arrogance, as I have previously mentioned, is another.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?
- There is a common human dictum that states, “Ignorance is bliss.” I would argue the contrary.

60. How do you feel about violence?
- I think that my opinion regarding violence has been made more than clear at this point. Can we talk about something else?

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.
- No, I do not have any children; it is not very often that my people choose to have children, given our lifespans.

((Thanks for this quiz! It was fun, and actually gave me some more insight on Tide.))

1. List four things you like very much.

Flames, howling till my skull buzzes, the throat ripping howls of others joining with mine, dancing around flames.


2. List four things you dislike very much.

Rules. Threats. Clothes. Boredom.


3. Did you have a happy childhood?

Yes. At first. Then after that foolish expedition to the Broken Isles, not so much. No.


4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.

All the grownups suddenly acting weak and stupid and giving up. Do not ingest demon fluids. I am serious about this.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.

She was Shadowmoon Clan originally. Beautiful and elegant. That is what she passed on to me, too.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.

He was Shadowmoon Clan also. Brilliant, powerful and full of fun. I come by it honestly you know.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?

Moonlight strolls through ruins. Setting things on fire. Eating. Casual sex. Not necessarily in that order. No need to be dull.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?

NO ONE INFLUENCES ME!

9. How do you feel about sex?

Pretty good. Not enough of that going around. At least quality, you know? No one gems for stamina anymore.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?

Any gronnshit from any loud, big mouthed Orc who isn't bleeding out yet. The deeper the gronnshit, the more profound the belief. Mostly it is about how some loud primitive with an axe or some hedge magic will lead the others to great power or virtue, but they usually don't lead. They don't lead at all. They drive. Ever notice that? "I'll stay here and help the wounded." Yeah. Gronnshit. Don't trust them. Set them on fire while they sleep. Teach them to dance. Change their song.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?

... Do you really need me to scriven that out for you?

12. How are your people organized and led?

Whatever. They'll believe anything from anyone. Fools.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?

You really don't pay attention, do you?

14. What is your philosophy of life?

Have fun today. Tomorrow have fun again. As long as you are having fun, you are winning. When people hate you for it, you are doing it right. Make sure your laughter is the last thing they hear.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?

*cups hand* To hold everything in my grip, just like that.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?

I hunger. It never stops. There is never enough. Always I hunger.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?

You have to educate yourself, you know. It never stops. I don't worry about the formalities, or keeping it clean or neat. "I don't see your degree." "HERE ARE ABOUT 451 DEGREES, just for you, BITCH! Now, BURN!" That shuts them up every time. Every damn time. Well, they make a lot of noise about it at first, but that tapers off.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?

I really don't care a turd.

19. What are you proudest of?

I really can't say. There is so damn much to choose from that it really is hard to choose.


20. What are you most ashamed of?

Shame is for peons and minions. I am neither. I do not do shame.

21. What is your deepest fear?

Knowledge is power. I'm not handing over something like that. Go to hell.

22. How do you feel about food?

Hot, greasy and smoky is best. Like a barbeque sandwich. Some pulled pork between two thick slices of brisket!

23. What makes you feel good?

Good food, laughing. Warm, joyful times.

24. What do you dream about?

Flames.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?

Efforts by others to control me.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?

Efforts to control me or impede me make me angry. Things tend to go up in smoke when that happens.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?

I just shake my head and try to stay out of it. Nudge things my way from the outside if I care, which I usually don't.


28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?

I suppose that idiot Gul'dan and his idiot adventure to those idiot islands.


29. How athletic are you?

Sweating is for peons and minions. I don't sweat. Here, wanna smell?

30. How methodical are you?

Method is boring. I like to surprise myself.

31. What are your chief taboos?

I don't have them.


32. How much traveling have you done?

I try to avoid it. Too much like work. If the Horde were truly civilized I'd travel by palanquin as I deserve that, but no, we are still chafing our asses and thighs on the backs of smelly animals, and getting wet when it rains.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.

If I do it right, it should not require courage. Leave no tracks unless you want to. Courage is a tool for stupid people to try to get a halfassed rush job pushed through in some desperate, cack handed way. Don't be brave. Be smart. Hit them when and where they don't expect it. Set it up so it is as easy as picking a cactus apple. Then you don't need bravery, and you've got the damned apple.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?

Not at all. I am simply a realist and take care of my greatest asset: me. If you were me, you would too.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?

There are things I love, sure. That makes me loving, I guess.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?

I seem to be. It sort of surprises me as I don't really try. Whatever.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?

Depends on what I want, and who or what gets in my way.

38. What is the purpose of your race?

Apparently to provide cheap labor and meatshields for every random ally or passing warchief. Stupid. Oh, gods, don't get sulky. I mean they are stupid for doing that. Not you. Although you do seem a bit obtuse.

39. How artistic are you?

I consider myself a kind of jazz artist. My instruments are flames and choral howling in various impromtu, unrehearsed performances. No repeats either. Can't get exactly the same thing together afterwards. Pay attention or you miss it.


40. How do you feel about material things?

I like them. Did you bring me anything?

41. What are your plans for the future?

How should I know? Sort of like your question about being methodical. I like to surprise myself.

42. How idealistic are you?

Not. I am blessedly free of that nonsense!

43. How realistic are you?

Totally.

44. How successful are you?

I take what I want when I want it. Sounds pretty successful to me.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.

Rules, weakness, demands, trying to claim authority.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.

You are beginning to annoy me.

47. How gullible are you?

I'm not.

48. How intelligent are you?

I'm brilliant.

49. Does the end justify the means?

Do you wear leather, eat meat, let others carry your things or risk their lives for you? Of course. People enjoy omelets every morning, but have you ever attended a funeral for the egg shells? No, because no one cares about breaking the eggs. Not really. The world is a big toy box. Play with it how you want. Don't shed crocodile tears along the way just because a toy or two gets broken. The important thing is that you had fun, not that the toys broke.


50. How attractive are you physically?

*preens* Totally.

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?

No.

52. What do you worry about the most?

I don't worry about anything.

53. What makes life worth living for you?

The next meal, the next bonfire. Singing and dancing. Anything that dispels boredom.


54. What is the difference between good and evil?

Maybe a hair.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?

Me.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?

Submitting to demons. No. THEIR job is to submit to ME. Clear?

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which discouraged?

I walk to and fro across the earth, to see what I can see. I'll be honest. I truly enjoy the general breakdown of order, loyalties, beliefs and sense of place that you see everywhere. This makes things quite fluid and presents a lot of opportunities. Listening to these lunatics who think they are in charge - that is pretty stupid. People are frightened. Exhausted. They are desperate to find a safe haven. That makes them gullible and malleable! Shape them. Strike while the iron is hot. These are the good times!


58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?

Ooh, we should all work together now! Ooh, everything is quiet now! Ooh, we have such good leaders now! *cackles* Fools!


59. What do you think is worth knowing?

Anything which makes me happier and stronger.

60. How do you feel about violence?

I adore violence! It is the artist in me. That, and my wry sense of humor.

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.

No time. No interest. They eat too much and I am not carrying anyone around inside of me for months at a time. Not gonna happen. There are herbs for that.

Jacob "Jake" Wakefield
Gilnean Harvest Witch (Worgen Druid)

1. List four things you like very much.
Trees. I've always liked trees. Oh, and animals too. People. I like them as well. And talking to all of them - those four things make me very happy. I like campfires as well. Sitting around, visiting, enjoying nature's bounty... Oh. Only four? Sorry.

2. List four things you dislike very much.
Rude behaviour. Especially when I'm trying to talk to them. Orcs are especially rude. I try and talk to them, they swing an ax at me! ::Head shake:: Rude. Ah, yes. Four things.... Forsaken. I dislike them very much. Kings. Not a fan of them, either. They try and force others to do what they want. War. I dislike that, too. Waste of life

3. Did you have a happy childhood?
Oh yes! My parents were members of the Order of the Harvest, and would take me with them wherever they went. They were herbalists, and known for the quality of their herbs. Most times, we would gather with other Members of the Order just outside of a village in Gilneas; usually in fields next to where a harvest was being performed, or a planting was taking place. Was always a fun time. People singing, dancing, drumming, being free and open with one another. Such an amazing community. Peacebloom smoke wafting over the camp, spirit journeys... ::sigh:: Those were the days.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
Oh, being invited into the Order as a youth. In addition to the gatherings of the Order. But they kind of go hand in hand, ya know? One flowed into another like streams into a lake.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
My mother... She was an amazing woman. Made her own clothes, too! She taught me the skills, which I still use to this day. Even after... ::frowns, but then smiles:: Well, my mother was a magician with wool. Our tent was hand-made, too. We never really had a house, like the people of the villages. We moved from place to place, always roaming the fields and farms helping. She sang, too. Wow did she have a voice. People would gather from all around while she sang songs of peace, welcome and love.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
My father was one with my mother. A true couple, like two hearts of the same soul. He was an herbalist and sheep herder, and taught me those skills as well. I was blessed as a child, to be honest. I couldn't have asked for better parents. My Da was welcome in every village, and no matter the farm, we always had a field to call home for the night. He traded his herbs for food, his wool for other sundries me might need. But interestingly enough, people gave us what we needed, as we gave them what they needed. What's it called? A symbiotic relationship with rural Gilneas.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?
Conversation. Talking is how you learn about others. Listening, of course. But most people, I find, need to be coerced into talking. Exploring as well. I find it very difficult to stay in one place too long. One never knows what's over the next hill. Maybe hidden treasure, or a lost civilization. Or a lonely soul in need of company.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?
The Order. That would make that plural. Persons. The Order of the Harvest, and the Old Ways. Which, really, should be the new and current ways. If everyone treated one another like we did within the Order, the world would be a MUCH happier and loving place. I mean, really? Who doesn't like dancing, singing and enjoying life to it's fullest?

9. How do you feel about sex?
Ah! My parents called it a Symbiotic Energy Exchange. The Order valued it, and preached free, open and often with any and all. Like I said, I had a GREAT childhood. One should not be ashamed of sex, or their bodies. Embrace it, enjoy it. Life's lovely gift of complete sharing.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?
Gilnean's follow the Holy Light, for the most part. The Order steps beyond, into the Old Ways where Life itself is to be worshiped.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?
Life itself is to be worshiped. That's my belief. Others within the Cenarion Circle look to spiritual beings, such as Elune, for guidance. For me, it's universal life that is to be worshiped. As a Harvest Witch, I will stand by those convictions. Life gives us the gifts, to use how we choose. It creates balance. Good and bad is a choice, a matter of perspective. The game of black and white proves it. You have to know one, in order to know the other. There is no good or bad. Things just are.

12. How are your people organized and led?
Ah, my people are the ones I associate with, currently. If you mean Gilneans? ::Shrug:: I guess they follow the Alliance. It seems they only want war, though. Which I find quite disturbing.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
War is never right, though it has to be sometimes. The leadership seems constantly bent on war, so I distant myself from it. People need help, sure. But they don't need more war. Life is too precious for that.

14. What is your philosophy of life?
Ha! I seem to be answering the next question before you ask it! As I said above, life is precious. It's all there is. It's the Great Gift and should be celebrated. Ask a tree. It'll tell you. IF you dare to listen

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
Huh. Tangible thing... let me think a moment. Thing? ::nod:: the ability to fly! I've seen other Druids soaring the skies, so I know it's possible. If I could do that, I would never come down. Soaring through the clouds on my own wings would be the greatest thing ever.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?
Nope. Everything seems to work, though getting older one begins to wonder at times. Maybe my mind wanders a bit. but I don't think that's physical. Oh! HA. Lynnie would say I suffer from falling off of cliffs and towers.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
As I said above, my education came from the Order of the Harvest. Seeing life as it unfolded, sharing in it's bounty from an early age. Being with, and experiencing people throughout my youth led me to being the person I am today. I was taught all sorts of useful skills, tailoring, herbology sheep herding, being a Harvest Witch. It was the best education a kid could have.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
I think people like me. Percy gets annoyed with me more these days, but I think he hit his head or something. Maybe it's the warlock in him that makes him that way. Other than that... oh some might be surprised at my ability to talk to anything. But not in a negative way.

19. What are you proudest of?
Escaping Gilneas after it fell to the Forsaken. And surviving in a world I did not know, making friends with people I escaped with. And making Finch a blue hood. It's a fine piece of work, and he likes it. That makes me proud, when I make something for someone and they use it.

20. What are you most ashamed of?
Ashamed? huh. Not much, if anything. I was taught not to feel shame. Things happen. Shame is for those who see bad when they try to do good. You can choose shame or not. I choose not. I might feel sad about something, but never shame.

21. What is your deepest fear?
Deepest fear.... ::Takes a deep breath:: Being turned into a Forsaken, and forced to walk the lands as a rotting corpse. They do that, you know. Take normal people's dead bodies and turn them into living corpses. How horrid. I do not hate, but that 'race' comes closest on that scale. You should have seen what they did to the bears in Hillsbrad! They put spiders on their backs and used the bears as breeding nests. The spiders sucked the life from the poor bears, draining them of their blood to feed their broods. Horrid! Disgusting race of beings.

22. How do you feel about food?
I like it, though not as much as my friend Lynnie. She can eat anything and everything. For me, I prefer vegetables and fruits over meats, but I can eat that as well.

23. What makes you feel good?
Conversation. And peacebloom. That makes everyone feel good. Oh, and the little white and gold mushrooms on my Cenarion staff that percy took away from me and left in the Blue Recluse. Those will make you feel REAL good. Journey into the spirit world, too.

24. What do you dream about?
A happier, more peaceful world. And my youth in the Gatherings of the Order. I've been told I will have to enter something called the Emerald Dream at some point. That sounds interesting and exciting.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?
War. And the Forsaken. I don't want to become a deader

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?
I don't get angry often. Rare, in fact. The Forsaken make me angry, and just thinking of them heats my blood just a bit. what they did to my homeland, the place of my childhood. Yea. that makes me angry. Can we move on?

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
Each to their own. Their choice to force war upon others saddens me. It nearly wiped out that lovely land of Pandaria. A beautiful place, now soured by attempted conquest. Of all the races I have met, the Pandarens come closest to what we had in Gilneas and the Order.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?
You asked this question earlier, if I recall. The Order of the Harvest.

29. How athletic are you?
Haha. Athletic? I can turn into a massive cat, or a stag. I can even change into a bear and a seal. Who needs athleticism when one can do that? I can change into a tree, too, but that annoys my friends a bit too much.

30. How methodical are you?

Go with the flow. If the peacebloom flows that way, go for it. If it feels right, do it. Maybe that is a sort of methodology, but I call it creative decision making. The heart knows what's best for your soul.

31. What are your chief taboos?
Haha Taboos? I can't recall having any. I certainly wasn't raised with any sort of taboo. Everything was within bounds. Maybe killing another against their will. I find that very difficult.

32. How much traveling have you done?
Based upon my youth, quite extensively. I can't stay still long, and certainly not in a n underground heated cavern like Ironforge. That place reeks! Nothing living, besides people, reside in that place. I'm shocked the Forsaken haven't taken it over. Seems their sort of place.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.
I think anytime one stands up for what they believe in, that is courageous. Our group always does this, so we are always courageous.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?
Not in the least. Share the love with others. Even Orcs deserve a chance, and I would welcome them as well if they were willing to spare my head an axe.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?
Absolutely. Love and life is all there is. Share it often, with everyone (except the forsaken)

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?
Popular? Not sure what that means, but I think people like me. I like them, that's for certain.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?
We can only be ourselves. If that's deemed important by others, so be it. I do not set out to 'influence' anyone. I help others, share my life with them and simply BE me. If that adds something to the world, so be it. Actually, our very existence in this world adds something to it, so we are ALL influencers to some extent. If I must, I want it to be positive and loving.

38. What is the purpose of your race?
To exist. To be, to live and love. That should be the purpose of all races.

39. How artistic are you?
I make clothes and imbue them with magic. If that's artistic, then I guess I am.

40. How do you feel about material things?
Only useful if they are helpful. The immaterial is more important.

41. What are your plans for the future?
To explore the world with my friends. Maybe find a few pieces of treasure. I do enjoy doing that. Relics from the distant past tell stories. I love hearing them, experiencing what the ground gives up from the past.

42. How idealistic are you?
Idealistic? Judge for yourself based upon what I've said.

43. How realistic are you?
I dream of a better tomorrow, and peace for all the world. Some might say that is NOT realistic at all. I beg to differ. It can happen, so long as all people choose it.

44. How successful are you?
A very generic question, with no point of reference. I am successful at falling asleep at night. Of waking up, of talking to my friends. Initiating a conversation. Making blue hoods for Finch... ::Shrug::

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.
Rude, unfriendly, being hateful, Forsaken

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
I like myself, wholly and completely.

47. How gullible are you?
I don't know. I follow my heart. Does that lead me to places that are... questionable sometimes? Sure. But it sure is fun!

48. How intelligent are you?
I'll leave that to others to answer.

49. Does the end justify the means?
No, the method of attaining one's goals are MUCH more important that the goal itself. The methods speak to self, define us and show us (and others) who we are. However, if the means DO define you, and you are okay with that, then it works. The means must match the self in order for them to justify the end goal. Like I've said, there is no good and bad - just perspective.

50. How attractive are you physically?
Doesn't matter. All life is beautiful, so to me, the question is not relevant

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
Living life is worth dying for. Protecting life, and the way of love is worth dying for. Friends are worth dying for.

52. What do you worry about the most?
Not much. IN-joy. there is no time for worry when you are inside of joy

53. What makes life worth living for you?
Life and all it has to offer. Experiencing life to it's fullest, even if it means falling off a tower to look at one's own toes.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?
The perspective one takes when determining the difference. Our personal definitions define the two. To the mouse, the cat is the epitome of evil. To us, a cat might seem lovable and affectionate, while the mouse is a rodent to be destroyed. Simply a matter of perspective.

I know, I know. This runs counter to my dislike of the Forsaken. However, until my perspective is shifted, it stands as it is. Horrid and vile monsters.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?
The one I am. Why would I want to be someone else?

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?

War solves problems. It only leads to more. If people would spare their axes for a moment and step into their enemy's shoes, look at things from their perspective, they will see that they fight for the same things! We are all the same. We want to raise families, love and live in peace. Governments, Kings, Clan Leaders - they are the ones who call for war; get the people focused on destruction of the enemy.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which discouraged?

Peace should be encouraged. Love should be encouraged. Cooperation among the races should be encouraged.
Discourage separation, lack and poverty. Share everything and all of this goes away.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?

None that I know of. Other than keeping me away from ledges.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?
Everything.

60. How do you feel about violence?

A waste of energy, both in reality and discussion

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.
Nope. Never had the opportunity. Well, at least none that I know of. Children were raised within the Order, either by their own parents or their grandparents. We were all one, for the most part.
