Re: Character Development Questionnaire

Postby Myaka » March 26th, 2014, 7:30 pm

1. List four things you like very much.

Snow, Nothing better then the sight of a fresh snowfall. Meeting new people, can never have too many friends. Along that line knowing that new or old, friends are there when you need them. Finally, exploring new places.

2. List four things you dislike very much.

People who are too narrow minded to consider they might be wrong, or hurting someone, Snakes, snakes are true evil, people who are cruel to others and infirmaries.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?

I did, my childhood was very sheltered, looking back on it now. My family, for any faults they may or may not have had, tried their best to make sure I was happy.

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

While it was not in my childhood, the Culling of Stratholme was a very defining moment in my life. It is what ultimately led to my choice to follow the Warrior path.

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

My mother, Victoria Winterborne, was from a merchant family that mostly stayed around Lordaeron. When it became apparent I couldn't follow my father's path, she took up training me so I could eventually take over her store in Lordaeron so she would not need to continue to travel there from her home in Stratholme. I can not say now how well that would have worked, I know that I was not always the perfect little lady that she wanted me to be for that. But she was stubborn, and would keep at it with the hope I'd be the daughter she thought i'd be.

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

My father, Micah Winterborne, he was the one I was closer to out of my parents. Even though I wasn't able to use the Light like my father and brother did my father still tried to make sure I didn't feel second to my brother. I know everything he did he did to protect me, even though some may not agree with his methods.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?

While General Larmont may not agree with how often I do them for fun, I enjoy warfront skirmishes to hone my combat skill. If I think that it is ill advised to do true skirmishes on the warfronts, I will take a trip to Xuen's temple where a magical proving ground is available for use of those that want to hone combat skill without risk of injury. When even this is perhaps of the table, I enjoy weapon and armor crafting.

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

*the word General appears to be written, then crossed out* Kate is someone that has influenced me a great deal. I would not be who I am now if I did not have her as a sister by honor.

9. How do you feel about sex?

I believe I will pass on this one.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?

Most humans believe in the Light, though there are a good deal of other beliefs out there I don't know about.

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

I believe in the Light, seeing a paladin or priest smite someone with it makes it hard not too believe. However, I don't believe in the seeming black and white categorization that the church of the Light gives to things it may or may not like.

12. How are your people organized and led?

We have a King that leads the bulk of the Human forces in conjunction with the other Alliance leaders.

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

I feel that a leader is only as good as how they treat those they are leading. When your leader starts to see you as expendable, then you should be looking for a new leader.

14. What is your philosophy of life?

Be true to who you are, don't make choices depending on what you think another wants of you, make them for you.

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

*There is an indent on the paper, as if Mya was thinking about what she would write* Pass.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?

I do not, by the grace of the Light or fool luck depending I've avoided any serious injury since walking the warrior path.

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

As part of my training to take over my mother's store, I learned your basics that anyone would. Reading, writing, how to balance books so on and so forth. After the Culling happened and I joined those fighting in the Third War I had some very basic training in swordsmanship before thrown into the fighting and learned to fight as I went. Outside of that, I also served as an apprentice blacksmith to Marie Holdston, before I became a blacksmith in my own right.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
I think it depends on who it is, those of the Empire know me as a soldier always focused on guarding the Empire.Those in the Hearthstone know me as a quiet easily embarrassed patron.

19. What are you proudest of?

I am proud of who i've become, it has not been easy, and there are some that didn't agree with my thoughts and beliefs. But i'm proud that i've followed what is right for me in spite of them.

20. What are you most ashamed of?

To go with the last question, I am ashamed of how long it took me to be who I wanted in spite of those that did not like what I wanted to be or believe in.

That I will do something to lose the people I care about. To many others have left, I don't want to loose the ones I have now.

I don't react, unless they effect people I care for, or the Vision of the Empire.

My father, He was everything I wanted to be as a person when I was older. I'd like to think i've done a good job living up to his legacy.

29. How athletic are you?

Fairly so, running around in plate armor will keep you in good shape.

31. What are your chief taboos?

People touching me, especially without me knowing.

32. How much traveling have you done?

I've done a bit more since leaving Theramore, I don't think i've seen all there is to see though.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.

Leaving Theramore, even though there was someone who very much didn't want me leaving. I knew I needed to however so I left, even though I was very afraid of what the repercussions would be.

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

Not really

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?

Yes, I care very deeply about the people I love.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?

No, I am too timid on occasion to step out of my soldier role and be the social one.

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

I don't care about being an influence on the world, but I hope to be an important influence on my loved ones.

38. What is the purpose of your race?

Who knows really, I think everyone is trying to figure that out.

39. How artistic are you?

I am somewhat artistic, I design my own weapons and armor, so I had to learn a little bit about art.

40. How do you feel about material things?

Material can be good, but don't focus so much on material wealth, that you forget everything else.

41. What are your plans for the future?

Right now? Helping to further the Vision of the Empire, that has always been my driving goal, and will more then likely continue to be so.

I like to believe people can do good, but now I try to be prepared if they don't.

I'm not dumb, though I have been known to miss references of a more adult nature.

49. Does the end justify the means?

Depends on what end you are trying to reach and what means you are using.

I don't think i'm ugly, but I don't know about much else.

Someone who my family and I are proud of.

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

This idea that just because you are an Orc you are evil or if you are a Kaldorei you are good.

which discouraged?

potentially dangerous?

We covered this on the last question.

Well enough I suppose. Ain't no one more stubborn than a Human 'cept maybe a Dwarf bein' denied his mead.

52. What do you worry about the most?
Recently? Figurin' out how the Fel I'm gonna fill in a gap one'a my contracts left when th' fella broke it off. Said th' copper I kept bringin' 'em was sh*t.

potentially dangerous?

Pass.

Hunger is abolished. Education is universal. And no one goes without. In that world, there are laws. To break even the slightest of these is to suffer immediate and terminal punishment.

Existence is a choice.

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

Physical exercises are not required. I am what I wish to be.

30. How methodical are you?
Sufficient enough to be efficient.

31. What are your chief taboos?

1. List four things you like very much.
- Chocolate
- Fine drink
- Family
- Control


2. List four things you dislike very much.
- Disrespect
- Disobedience
- Bourbon
- Lack of control


3. Did you have a happy childhood?
As a young girl, I was very happy. I was treated well, enjoyed life on the farm, and had high regard for life in general.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
When I was thirteen, my father sent me away to the Stranglethorn Vale with a missionary expedition seeking to spread the word of the Light to the native inhabitants. His intentions were for me to train in the ways of the priestess and follow his footsteps as a servant of the Light. I was sent home some months later with an expedition guard and a letter informing my father that I had not a drop of Holy magic in my blood and would never hold the ability to channel the Light. My father was livid.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
Althea is a kind-hearted woman who is brilliant with a needle and thread. I hold little fondness for her now, and have not spoken with her in many years.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
Jaxton, if he still lives, wished for nothing but to serve the Light and the King as a paladin. I have not spoken to him since he disowned me as his kin; since then, the years have curdled whatever remaining fondness I held for him. Recent discoveries of several children sired by him has served to supply me with the sisters I never had as a child while turning any erstwhile respect for our sire to scorn.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?
For several years now, I have enjoyed frequent meditation. Running, cliff-scaling, and aerial acrobatics have all held a place in my heart for a significant duration as well; as of late, however, such activities have been curtailed. I find I am enjoying Hearthstone for the time being.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?
My cousin, Ketani, has undoubtedly held the most sway over my life. She has always been a constant in my life and has provided advice, assistance, and refuge at more points in time than I can even recall.

9. How do you feel about sex?
In my early adulthood, sex was an escape, a means to an end. Now, sex is an act of intimacy with one dearly loved and trusted; I would not entertain the thought of engaging in the act with another.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?
My people’s religious beliefs are widespread and varied as the flora and fauna that inhabit Azeroth and beyond; however, most humans seem to bend the knee to the will of the Light.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?
I believe without a doubt that the Light exists in far more than a faith-based means, as I have witnessed its magics firsthand. However, I do not place my personal faiths within its grasp.

12. How are your people organized and led?
The humans are led by a King as part of the Alliance, and are managed by the various government establishments that he ultimately controls.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
There has been much and more on which I disagree with in regards to the King; there has also been a great deal for which I can respect him. Obviously, he is quite important; he heads the Kingdom with which I must assist the Empire in maintaining a rapport with.

14. What is your philosophy of life?
Live it in accordance with what is most important to you, and Fel forbid things of import are also of a conflicting nature.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
Should there be anything tangible in nature which I desired, I would merely need to expend the resources to get it.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?
None on a regular basis. Injuries and illnesses do occur, of course.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
I learned primary basics while residing in Westfall as a child. My father fancied himself someone of import and sought to provide me with additional schooling fit for someone of “our class” in order to keep up appearances. My grandfather taught me to skin many manners of beast, my aunt to tend bar and harvest plant matter. Many people have taught me much and more, and all of it has been useful in some way.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
It truly does depend upon the role I fulfill for that person, and as do many I fill a great number of differing roles. My lover, my immediate family, and my friends react to me as though I am simply me: Kate, as seen by a partner, a mother, or a companion. My newly-found sisters, perhaps with part exasperation and part affection as we all have our differences and our places. My sister by honor, Myaka, perhaps the same (though she listens far better than most others). My soldiers, as though I am their superior officer and therefore with part respect, anger, and camaraderie; and yet, there are soldiers like Tarashan who hold little to no sense of professionalism and take the camaraderie to an entirely new level by propositioning me for a threesome - in front of our Empress, no less.

19. What are you proudest of?
I am an undeniably prideful woman, and so two things rival for the top position: my work with the Empire while rising from Plebeian to General, and my work as a mother to the son I did not birth.

20. What are you most ashamed of?
There are a great many things I have lived to regret, and yet they all carry the same theme: the naivety of youth.

21. What is your deepest fear?
That I will fail those who depend upon me in any fashion.

22. How do you feel about food?
Food is food; a simple meal and a top-notch one can be equally satisfying, but it is important to temper what goes into the body. Poor sustenance makes for poor fuel.

23. What makes you feel good?
Laughter, companionship, success, and control.


24. What do you dream about?
I dream of a great many things, though I seldom recall the details.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?
Failure and losing control.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?
The above, in addition to disrespect and disobedience and several other things, comprise the bulk of what angers me. Reactions to such vary with the situation.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
There is no specific reaction. Humans exist for better or for worse in conjunction with the other races.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?
It is truly a tie between my cousin and my father.

29. How athletic are you?
Extremely.

30. How methodical are you?
Extremely.

31. What are your chief taboos?
I am at a point in my life where, regrettably, I have taken to avoiding alcohol and other similar substances.

32. How much traveling have you done?
A great deal.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.
There has been very little I deem as “courage,” but a great deal more of “adaptation” and “providing.”

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?
At many times, yes.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?
Without a doubt.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?
I am not as popular as some, but I am well-known.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?
I command the military branch of a politically-charged organization that seeks peace between the factions in a war-thirsty world. Some act of mine at some point in some way will have an influence.

38. What is the purpose of your race?
To exist, I would imagine.

39. How artistic are you?
I am no great painter or writer, but I do enjoy carving wood.

40. How do you feel about material things?
Many material things are necessary to perform to the best of one’s ability. While I enjoy luxurious items, they ultimately pale in comparison to the immaterial.

41. What are your plans for the future?
I see myself with a continued position of authority within the Twilight Empire, one day married to Zakarnas and with a child that shares my blood.

42. How idealistic are you?
I have dedicated my remaining days to the furthering of a Vision of peace between the factions. If nothing else, that in and of itself is extremely “idealistic.”

43. How realistic are you?
Despite the aforementioned, I am extremely realistic as well.

44. How successful are you?
The definition of success is different for every individual. I have secured a powerful position within a strong organization, I am well-off in the financial sense through my own means, and I have a wonderful (and large) family and network of friends. In many senses, I consider myself successful.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.
- Disrespect for others
- Arrogance
- Narrow-mindedness
- Betrayal


46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
- Pride
- The need for control
- Loose temper
- Dependence


47. How gullible are you?
I lean far closer towards suspicion than acceptance in many cases, but I have been taken for a fool.

48. How intelligent are you?
I am very intelligent, but that is not to say I am well-versed in every single realm of knowledge.

49. Does the end justify the means?
Such depends upon the end and the means in question.

50. How attractive are you physically?
There are those with far greater beauty than myself, but I am far from sore on the eyes.

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
My family and my Empire with its Vision; life in general has taught me such.

52. What do you worry about the most?
Failing those I command, those I serve, and/or those who depend upon me in some form.

53. What makes life worth living for you?
My family, my friends, and my Empire with its Vision.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?
The eye of the beholder.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?
Someone who is strong, that can be relied upon, that can lend comfort with one breath and command with the next.

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

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

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?
Many of my circle are affiliated in some form with dangerous walks of life; therefore, most everything that can be labeled as a “popular idea” would be potentially dangerous.

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

60. How do you feel about violence?
It is necessary, and I have embraced it as such.

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.
I have two children by “adoption.” The oldest, Valeatrah, is an ex-priestess with an attitude, an authority problem, and an unlimited capacity for compassion. I have heard from her very rarely since she undertook a journey to find her adopted father. My youngest, Marzano, was found by Zakarnas some years ago wandering a beach, orphaned by the Destroyer; he is the most studious little boy I have ever known, and while he can be shy never fails to offer kindness to someone.

(( Since I'm quarantined atm (don't ask) and after eight games, four books, a four-season TV series and countless movies, I now have nothing better to do. So I figure I'll add Grathier to this list. ))

1. List four things you like very much.
Drinking, smoking, sex and operating various weaponry.

2. List four things you dislike very much.
Dealing with people who care only for themselves, liars, thieves and drug users (those three count as one), complaining about first-world problems or hearing people complain about them, junk food.

Yes, though it was a short one.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
The Culling of Stratholme and my first encounter with an undead there.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
Elizabeth Grathier was a caring and dutiful wife and mother - though a bit too yielding sometimes. She changed when dad died - I never got used to the new her. After she remarried we drifted apart some and the rift was never healed.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
Eric Grathier was my dad - I cannot really phrase that better. He taught me everything I needed to know about life and did his best never to shelter me too much. He was an irreplaceable man.

Drinking, gambling, chatting up women and fixing things.

Don't give me a problem, give me a solution.

1. List four things you like very much.
Flying. Doesn’t matter if it’s a hippogryph or a wind rider or my turbocopter. I just like to fly. The smell of leather. Runner’s high. My bond-beasts. (Doesn’t that count as more than four?) Hey, I can’t pick and choose!

2. List four things you dislike very much.
The Alliance. The Horde. Mites. The Bitch Queen of Undercity.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?
Eh…no. A mediocre one, would be the best way to put it. Rhesa raised me for the most part, because our mother was out with the Farstriders most of the time.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
The Amani launched a huge attack against Farstriders’ Retreat when I was there – I must have been maybe ten, eleven years old. Brought home you defend what’s yours, you don’t give up until you’re dead, no matter how dire things are. *pauses* And some foes aren’t worth honorable treatment.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
Jachin? Rhesa has her coloring – red hair, green eyes. She was a Farstrider, one of their best scouts. So I didn’t see her much. To tell truth, she didn’t have much maternal instinct, either. Sometimes I’d bring her flowers and she’d drop them after a few minutes. Sometimes I hated her, for not being like other mothers. Always wanted her to be proud of me, though.

Rhesa was more of a mother when I was very little. That changed as I grew older.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
I have no idea who he is. I don’t think Jachin knows for sure, either. I use Jachin’s surname – Hawkflight – as my sisters do. When I’m feeling maudlin, I sometimes fantasize about how things would have been if he’d been, you, there.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?
Working out: weights, running, whatever. Exploring. Oh – gotten into this archaeology stuff.

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

9. How do you feel about sex?
Eh, take it or leave. Mostly leave it, these days. I used to be involved in a heavy, party-party crowd with extreme tastes. I’m talking people needing healers and a couple times resurrections. I should know – I was one of the latter.

(Is that what got you out of that crowd?)

No, believe it or not. Eventually I decided I was tired of being a party favor.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?
The Light, and though it’s not official, the Sun fits in there, too.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?
Mm. I respect the Light, but I could never be a devotee, either as a priest of a worship. The Sun… I don’t know.

12. How are your people organized and led?
Lor’them Theron is the Regent-Lord. He leads the Convocation – the ruling nobles. In theory he speaks on our behalf to the Warchief.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
I’m jaded. Extremely. In theory, all the allied races in the Horde are nice and equal. In practice? Hellscream used us as cannon fodder and the rest of the Horde didn’t give a shit. At least Theron recognized this. Too late, in my eyes, but I’ll give the cuffshooter that much.

14. What is your philosophy of life?
Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.

(Chim, that’s Malcom X…)

Your point? Butter on a biscuit, fine! Don’t start fights, finish them.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
Hmm. Toughie. Something really sleek to dance in.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?
Not unless you count being shorter than most sin’dorei.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
I had more ‘book-learning’ than a lot of commoners, thanks to Jachin’s interest in history. Farstrider training’s been the most obviously useful, but I can’t discount what I picked up from reading. I’m an engineer, specialized in gnomish. Because gnomes are the closest to dwarve. How I felt about it…? Sometimes it was enjoyable, sometimes it was a pain in the ass, sometimes it was just there.

I picked up some Common along the way, and I know a few dwarfish phrases. And I learned to make my own bow and feathers.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
(laughs) Not very well, to be honest.

19. What are you proudest of?
Getting into the Farstriders. Jachin didn’t have much to do with that, despite being one herself.

20. What are you most ashamed of?
How I got kicked out of the Farstriders. Stupid to take sides in something that political, but… they were my friends.

21. What is your deepest fear?
Telling Draxonicar to shove it up his ass. No, no. Hmm. Being abandoned, alone.

22. How do you feel about food?
When I’m in the field or on the trail, whatever’s handy will do. I can hunter, naturally, but I prefer to live off trail rations; these days it’s mostly just me out there, and I don’t like to waste a kill. When I get back to civilization, though, I want gourmet cooking done by someone else, with lots of courses and, oh, at least three completely decadent desserts.

23. What makes you feel good?
An engineering project coming together. Dancing to something with a good, heavy drumbeat. A long soak in the tub. Getting off a true, solid spear shot.

24. What do you dream about?
Every day stuff, all mixed up.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?
Undercity. Forsaken in general. Telling Draxonicar to shove it up his ass. Getting involved in noble political games.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?
Lots of things, too many to list. Little things, like when I can’t get the screws tightened on a project, or the feathers aligned on arrows. Big things, like everyone pretending they weren’t scared shitless of Garrosh and were really going to do something about him, honest! How do I react? For the little stuff, I cuss a blue streak and stalk off, wait a few minutes, try again. For the big stuff, I cuss a blue streak and argue my point. If I can. I’m not always articulate under pressure.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
Roll with it as best I can.

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

29. How athletic are you?
Extremely.

30. How methodical are you?
Not as much as I would like to be. I’ve grown more methodical since I took up engineering, but I’m still a lazy-broom when it comes to housework.

31. What are your chief taboos?
Killing civilians. Associating with my old crowd, if possible.

32. How much traveling have you done?
More in the last ten years than I have in the previous three hundred and thirty. Outland, Northrend, Pandaria.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.
Saving my sisters after Artie and his Scourge pals attacked Silvermoon. That’s all I’m going to say.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?
More than I like to admit.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?
I think so. Selectively.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?
Nah.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?
(laughs) No.

38. What is the purpose of your race?
To live.

39. How artistic are you?
Not much. I like other people’s art, though.

40. How do you feel about material things?
They’re fun, but they don’t last long. I like shiny, brightly colored stuff. Sometimes I get attached to one or two things out of sentimentality.

41. What are your plans for the future?
Play it by ear.

42. How idealistic are you?
Not very. Sometimes it pokes up a sprout, no matter how hard I rip it up by the roots.

43. How realistic are you?
Very.

44. How successful are you?
Not much.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.
Intellectual" snobs who think they know everything and look down their noses at people who aren't as "cultured" as they are... long, boring talkers... pompousity. Cowardice.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
I don't think before talking, sometimes I think I'm stupid, I get frustrated easily, and I'm SHORT.

47. How gullible are you?
Eh. I’ve fallen for stupid things before. And seen through others. So.. (shrugs).

48. How intelligent are you?
I’m not the brightest star in the sky, but I can see through a brick wall given time. I don’t know. I’d like to say “above average” but EVERYONE thinks they’re “above average.”

49. Does the end justify the means?
There are situations where, no, the means does not justify the ends, and anyone who says “Yes” to this question will backpedal like mad if you bring them up. So, what means and what ends?

50. How attractive are you physically?
Ugh. For a blood elf I’m short, baby-faced and buxom. And my eyes still show a hint of gold through the fel green glow. So, by local standards, not really.

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
I’d die to protect my family, if I had to. I’d prefer to stay alive and protect them, then and in the future.

52. What do you worry about the most?
The big things – what’s going to happen with the Horde and Alliance, when will the Bitch Queen decide to drop her “I’m loyal to the Horde” act and attack.

53. What makes life worth living for you?
The little, day-to-day good stuff that happens when I’m not losing sleep over the shit I worry about.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?
How badly and how much your actions affect other people.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?
A more hopeful one.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?
I don’t think you can forget ideas without them popping up in your future…mm. That whole “The Banshee Queen is still Sylvanas!” crap. No, she’s not.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which discouraged?
I’d like a longer stretch of peace in the world. Maybe orcs can live and die happy spilling shit and guts over corpses day-in day-out, but I can’t. Constant fighting gets old (snorts) Orcs are too short-lived to realize that.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?
Extreme racial pride. Seen it from some trolls, some orcs still.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?
How to defend yourself and your loved ones.

60. How do you feel about violence?
Necessary, never glamorous.

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