Character Analaysis Thread

Post by Paozi on Wed May 21, 2014 11:04 am

What is your character's theme-song?
What is your character's alignment?
What actor would play your character in a movie?
What color of Magic: The Gathering would your character's deck be?
How does your character score in the Jungian Myers-Briggs Personality Test?
What Harry Potter house would your character be in?
Etc.

Every role-playing forum has lots of these kinds of threads. I decided to just make one to harbor all.

I'll kick us off with Paozi.

Theme-song

I have always found it tricky to find a proper theme for Paozi, since he's a rather multi-faceted character. After much experimentation, I will almost always inevitably flock back to Cyan's theme from Final Fantasy VII. It is, of course, very sterotypically Asian-sounding, which is always a plus for Pandaren. But more importantly it expresses a certain martial haughtiness; oriental nobility.



Hogwarts House

There's no doubt about it: Paozi belongs with Slytherin. He has always had a highly deceptive personality and has never shied away from using unsavory means to achieve his goals. Paozi could easily be the villain in somebody else's story, or the token evil (or at least morally ambiguous) teammate.

Alignment

Paozi is a classic example of a True Neutral character. This line from the TVtropes article in particular examplifies his status in the D&D personality axis: "A True Neutral character [...] can be introduced as a Wild Card, neither aligned with the Hero nor the Big Bad. On the other hand, they may well be on one side or the other, at least nominally. Perhaps they care little for the conflict and have their own goals, which are neither particularly good or evil." He generally doesn't take any moral stance in anything; he doesn't even prefer the Alliance over the Horde and only nominally sides with them because the Band of the Brave does.

---

Feel free to describe your characters trough any of the methods I used employed and shared, or add your own! There's so many ways to describe and expand your characters that there is really no sense in limiting yourself to what I used. Heck, I might return to this thread with more and different ways to analyze Paozi!

Alright Paozi, I'll play your game. Starting off with..

Theme-song

At first I didn't know where to start, considering Ariel is a bit strange on the personality I could never pinpoint exactly what kind of music that would fit her the best. Then I remembered Tipper - Illabye. I listen on it everytime I start roleplaying to get In character and it sets the perfect mood.

Tipper - Illabye:


Hogwarts House.

Ariel would be closer to Slytherin then the other classes, all thought she can be seen showing kindness now and then it will mostly be for her own reasons. She never does anything without a reason and a reward, she also has great ambitions and always hungry for more power and wisdom in the arts of Shadow.



Alligment

I like to imagine being either Neutral -Evil or Neutral. I'm unsure which one of these Ariel actually is. [...] Ariel would be a Sorcery - Shadow card, her being a Shadowmancer and all that I think it would be fairly obviously.

---

Yes, I totally ripped of Paozi's version.

Theme Song

Seriously, what else would it be?

SAVIOR OF THE UNIVERSE!



Harry Potter House

Classic gryffindor if I ever saw one. Passionate and righteous.

Allignment

Lawful Good. For the Light! For the Alliance!

Magic The Gathering Color

White.

Hearthstone Class

Paladin.



...Am I painting a clear picture yet? Theadore is so incredibly good and Light-hearted that she's almost a parody of the Lawful Good character. Protect the innocent, smite the wicked, and trusting in the goodness of people to a fault.

Theme Song



From tender to bombastic, Lomonde leans towards a melodramatic and ludicrous approach to all things. The overture reflects all these elements along with his semi-patriotic, light-hearted (if deluded) view of the Alliance culture he’s embraced.
(That said, this would be an OOC theme,as he already possesses his own IC theme song Wink)  


Alignment?  Chaotic Neutral: A kleptomaniac and compulsively outrageous liar, he follows where his whims take him – usually into trouble. If he does do the right thing, more often than not it’s for the wrong reasons. He walks the line between dashing rogue and scumbag mercenary.

Preferred Actor?: Doug Jones. Oh my gosh yes.
Spoiler:



Jungian Myers-Briggs Rating: Extroverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving, aka: The Entertainer! (Plenty of reading done for this one)
Spontaneous, enthusiastic and optimistic, all the world is a stage and so they constantly put on a show. More practical than studious, ESFP’s prefer to “go with the flow” and while they display an avid interest in other people, they can also be rather  materialistic.


Hogwarts House:

It flips from Ravenclaw to Slytherin. While quick witted with a broad imagination, he’s far more pragmatic and street-smart than he lets on. I place him in the former as a result of his limited ambition and lack of drive to see long-term goals through to their end.

First off: Kudos for the awesome topic idea and questionnaire.

Alignment:
Lawful Neutral/Shadow. He likes to think he walks with the Light in his mind on a path that includes darkness.

Now, the theme song... well, it may be kind of cheesy, but it would definitely be Honor for All



Actor?
James Purefoy. Pondered Orlando Bloom for a moment, but definitely Purefoy. Here's a link for whoever hasn't heard of him. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm893954048/nm0700856?ref_=nmmi_mi_all_sf_37

What color in Magic the Gathering?
Blue. No questions asked. Both me and Khalas are far too fond of the act of trickery than the result of it /as opposed to black/.

Now, the test results... Those came as a bit of a shock.

ESTJ
Extravert(1%) Sensing(12%) Thinking(1%) Judging(1%)

You have marginal or no preference of Extraversion over Introversion (1%)
You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (12%)
You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)
You have marginal or no preference of Judging over Perceiving (1%)
Received this as well:
Because you appear to have marginal or no (1%) preference of Extraversion over Introversion, marginal or no (1%) preference of Thinking over Feeling, marginal or no (1%) preference of Judging over Perceiving, characteristics of more than one personality type may apply to you:
ESTJ, ESFJ, ISTJ, ISFJ, ESTP, ESFP, ISTP and ISFP.

Well... That was kind of a RL surprise as well... Seems like I am more closer to Khalas than I imagined, too. All about flexibility.

The house in Harry Potter?
Slythering, close second Ravenclaw. Intellect dominates, but not having it for the sake of having it, but of getting the best possible use for it.

You have slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (12%)

Themesong


Kinda corny. A pirates song, and then the most blatant asian one at that. But I’m not good at selecting songs. So this one!

Hogwarts House
Gryffindor. Rinoi values bravery, daring and chivalry. She also shares some traits with the Hufflepuffers though.

Alignment
Lawful Good. Although Rinoi leans towards the lawful side, and the good side of things, she isn’t afraid to occasionally ignore or bypass laws to get things the way she likes it. So things are a bit more grey than that.

Actress

Ming-Na Wen. A bit too old to play Rin really. But she is pretty kick-ass! You might know her as Melinda May in the Agents of Shield series. Or the voice of Mulan!

"Tanarisian" isn't a thing, humans only arrived on Kalimdor relatively recently. Skin color in world of warcraft doesn't appear to be canonically tied to region.

But eeh, yeah, I get what you mean. I'll keep it in mind.

Theme song



Allignment

Magic Deck

Green/Red. He's one with nature, but enjoys shooting at it too.

Actor

It's gotta be Drogo.

Cheers and seems also as my first post on the forums. Yea Tiyanador, stop cheering happily now, and clapping...
Damn Draenai cannot stop her affection for you guys.
OKAY!
So she goes First!

Tiyandor: (yes she says i need to tell ya that is the lovely draenai inkeeper who hopes to one day grow up in rank of Braveheart. Until than she is happy tagging along adventures and even more happy to nibble Delidah's cookies and serve your character their favourite drink.)

What is your character's theme-song?

x3
What is your character's alignment?
You know those people who care too much about friends? Thats she.
What actor would play your character in a movie?
Daaamn okay hard one... Tiya? She doesnt knows either. We will just have to return to this one later. *Pats Tiya*  
How does your character score in the Jungian Myers-Briggs Personality Test?
She is just solving this while I am typing this stuff up and for Alruic. He tho refuses to go solve it. He says he believes only in one personality and that is Ale.
Okay newsflash: Tiyanador solved this with:
ESFJ - "Seller". Most sociable of all types. Nurturer of harmony. Outstanding host or hostesses. 12.3% of total population.
What Harry Potter house would your character be in?
Hufflepuff.

And now for Alruic Forgehammer, the stout paladin dwarf.

What is your character's theme-song?
I swear i had to throughly think for this one...

What is your character's alignment?
Neutral Good i think. He promotes the Light and blessings of his home which was based around ancient almost shamanistical Runes of Homeflame. This part of the Bronzebeard line in thirtysecond knee is almsot forgotten, and all from this family make expert master craftsmans when it comes from enchanting or blacksmithing weapons within the forge's heart.
Still tho even if it sounds classically locked into himself he is rather open and doesnt push others into what they might not believe. He rather proves the quality of his steel.
What actor would play your character in a movie?
Tyrion Lanister? xD Just kidding aaaam...
Hard to think of one who i would come with by, but I would go with Ken Stott (Balin in The Hobbit)

Theme song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqI-6xag8Mg

Alignment - Neutrally Chaotic. He's Morally Grey, does what he thinks is needed (not always what's right).

Actor who would play Terrance - Jason Statham, because Jason Statham.

harry potter house - Slytherin.

Hearthstone deck - Warrior, for the simple fact, the hunter decks in HS are mainly Beast synergy, and he doesn't rely on beasts as much as his weapons.

Lets go:
Theme song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM1Jz8CICxE

Alignment - Charlies alignment changes constantly depending on his mood etcetera, he only have specific things he will never do. Harming or killing defenseless women and children being two of them.

Actor: Johnny Depp because I have a feel he would play out the character brilliantly.

House - Ravenclaw or Slytherin?

Personality test results for Charlie:
ENFP
Extravert(33%)  iNtuitive(12%)  Feeling(50%)  Perceiving(44%)
You have moderate preference of Extraversion over Introversion (33%)
You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%)
You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (50%)
You have moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (44%

Hearthstone deck: Rogue, due to the fast paced gameplay and the amount of spells you can use each turn. If we go specific it would be Miracle Rogue that fits this character best but freeze mage also to an extent.

Theme song - I can't decide here its eighter
Theme song 1:
or
Theme song 2:
I can't really decide but i find both to fit him when i think of him and these are music i can listen to while roleplaying him just to get in to the mood

Alignment - I would say Neutral Good is closest to him but it's somewhere in between Neutral Good and True Neutral.

Actor - No clue really... I'm horrible at watching movies and tv shows and of those I knew of no one fits... if i find one il update

House - Ravenclaw, He's a smart dude... he just don't show it that often

Magic the gathering magic color - White/blue mostly white but still a hint of blue

Personality test for Haatim
INTJ
Introvert(78%)  iNtuitive(38%)  Thinking(25%)  Judging(22%)
You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (78%)
You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (38%)
You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (25%)
You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (22%)

Seychelle Gabriel:

Probably a combination of red and green. Akyta is quite impulsive and allows her emotions to guide her, and values harmony and balance.

Can only think of these for Calamity, soooo.

What is your character's theme-song?



What is your character's alignment?

Chaotic Neutral

What actor would play your character in a movie?

Hayden Panettiere would be a decent choice. She's almost short enough at 5'0, has a crazy enough personality, is blonde (that's an important requirement), and possibly most importantly she can sing! With the right makeup and hair, she could be the perfect Calamity.



What color of Magic: The Gathering would your character's deck be?

Red, absolutely.

What Harry Potter house would your character be in?

The one the bad guys are in, I dunno, I never liked Harry Potter
