So, I'm about to join an RP group and I saw my friend and fellow RP member TheShadowMiester filling out this questionnaire for her characters she is playing, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to get to know my own character better.
1. What is your name?
Armand Baptiste, duc d'Bois.
2. Do you know why you were named that?
I am the last scion of the house Baptiste, peasant.
3. Are you single or taken?
I am single, though I most never lack for pleasurable company.
4. Have any abilities or powers?
I possess a formidable demon form, the power to fly into deadly blood rages, as well as my own dashing good looks and fashionable mode of dress.
5. Stop being a Mary-sue!
Merde…Whatever is this tiresome term? I am not a woman, if that's what you mean. Stop wasting my time, peasant!
6. What's your eye color?
7. How about hair color?
I have brown hair, but I shave it to go under my beautiful white wig with streaks of crimson; it sets off my eyes and contrasts well with my handsome, meticulously-powdered face. It also looks good with spattered blood if I am particularly fierce in my killing… (goes on for several hours about how good-looking he is)
8. Have you any family-members?
That is none of your business!
9. Oh? How about pets?
I had a menagerie back at the estate, but it had long since fallen into disrepair after that damned revolution. I was forced to eat the animals in order to survive when my supply of unfortunate servants ran out.
10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
This barbaric age in which I find myself! There is no order, no status, no sense of honor among anyone! The superior are staggering under the tyranny of the undesirables and the fashion is particularly rank! And the music, the music! It sounds like death, suffering, and the torments of hell being exacted on the musicians. Merde…If I could only go back to the ancien regime one last time and take a good draught of the sensibility of my own age, when people knew their places! To hell with this democracy and vulgarity which plagues the culture of today, stripping it down to the savage bleatings of idiot children…(goes on for hours)
11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
I am quite fond of attending the opera, engaging in murder and mayhem, raising some good old-fashioned hell, reading, tasting blood, courting and seducing fair maidens (or as the vulgar apes of today call it, "picking up chicks").
12. Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?
Bahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahaha! Of course, you simpleton! I simply relish it! Every pain I inflict upon my enemies is the most exquisite taste in my mouth… (creepily monologues about the joys of torture)
13. Ever... killed anyone before?
Ah…the only thing better than torture on this earth…
14. What kind of animal are you (what the hell?):
I am a bloodwritten, if that is what you mean by your senseless query…
15. Name your worst trait(s)?
My worst trait would be consenting to this tiresome interview when I could be doing something so much better.
16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
I always did admire my good friend and mentor the Marquis de Sade. We were nigh inseparable back in the glory days; ah, the hell we raised, the many salons in which we created sins which had never before existed. Ah, those were the days…
17. Are you Gay, Straight, or Bisexual?
And herein we find another problem with this barbaric age, this needless complication of life and the compulsion to define oneself by his bedfellows. We had no such problem in my day. If you wanted to bed another man, you did it. If you wanted to bed a woman, you could do that as well. There was none of this incessant affixation of labels based on ones' actions. If one were sly enough, he could have whomever he wanted.
18. Do you go to school?
I studied at the University of Paris in my youth, until, of course, I was expelled and nearly prosecuted for organizing an orgy and black mass in the cellar. Needless to say, I stayed well away from Paris for many years afterward.
19. Ever wanna marry and have kids one day?
And why would one so foolishly shackle themselves to a singular woman when all the joys of Venus lie about, ripe for the picking, like an orchard. Children are also an unnecessary burden on a man, though I do see the importance when it comes to inheritance, though we bloodwritten are so long-lived we have plenty of time to see to that.
20. Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
Yes, back at my chateau, I had several young girls and boys who would fan me on hot days.
21. What are you most afraid of?
Nothing; not God in Heaven, nor the devil in hell. I am Armand, duc d'Bois; nigh invincible heir of the mighty d'Bois. Nothing can assail me for long. I did not survive the pitiful wars of two centuries to simply expire at the hands of the vulgar enemies I now face.
22. What do you usually wear?
I prefer the colors red and black, as well as much golden embellishment. We cannot have people think I am merely a common peasant, now can we?
23. What's one food that tempts you?
Human flesh and blood.
24. Am I annoying you?
Of course you are, you insignificant peasant! Any longer and I will have to acquaint you with my knives.
25. Well, it's still not over!
(Takes out a knife and begins to play with it, eyeing the interviewer hungrily)
26. What class are you? (low class, middle class, high class)?
Can you not tell by my noble bearing and finery that I am, in fact, an aristocrat, you simpleton?!
27. How many friends do you have?
I had many in court and my own circle of most intimate associates who were my co-conspirators in much delicious debauchery. Sadly, I have none who share my unique tastes in this forlorn age.
28. What are your thoughts on pie?
Quite tasty, especially when paired with blood.
30. Favorite drink?
Blood. There is simply nothing like fine blood from a particularly aesthetically pleasing victim.
31. What's your favorite place?
My beautiful estate.
32. Are you interested in anyone~?
There are many fine women I currently have eyes for; some would even make good candidates for a bite or two or a sip of the blood…
33. That was a stupid question. I killed it.
Good for you, peasant; now would you leave me alone?
34. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
I would rather bathe in a lake since the ocean is full of course salt and sand, which do murder to my skin.
35. What's your type?
My type of what?
36. Any fetishes?
More than I could list here, infinitely more…
37. Seme or uke?
Hmm…what a strange set of words. After learning the meanings, I am most definitely a seme.
38. Camping or indoors?
The indoors, of course! Camping is something no dignified nobleman would be caught dead doing.
