Name the main character game!

Pretty simple, I’m sure there are other games similar to this, but thought I would make me own. I used to play a version of this with my friends when I was younger.

Briefly fill out the answers to the following questionnaire and let the next poster name your character!

Appearance: Briefly describe complexion, hair style, distinctive features, clothing style etc.
Family: Briefly describle family situation. No need to include names unless you want to.
Personality: Briefly describe who they are. Popular? Outgoing? Shy? Evil? Whatdo they like to do?
Location: Could be country, but also could be a description like somewhere cold or on a spaceship
[name_f]Era[/name_f]/setting: Modern, futuristic, medieval, 70’s, 80’s, whatever suits.
Theme: If applicable. Modern, futuristic, adventure etc.

I’ll kick it off :slight_smile:

Appearance: [name_m]Messy[/name_m] red hair that usually down or in a long braid on the side of her head, eyes that change almost every day from sky blue to olive green to dark violet-blue.
