Kit wakes up around 10 AM, but he has to deal with clients all day. Since he’s kind of used and sold as an escort (of all kinds) he goes to deal with those appointments. He usually gets home around 2 or 3 in the morning. But this is his routine before the book starts so….
Q: If they joined your local high school, what clique would they fit into?
Victoria would probably fit in with the robotics kids at my high school for pretty obvious reasons.
Kit I think would probably be either a jock in cross country or something. That or he’d just be popular for nothing except for his charisma lol.
Q: Write a list of things they merely tolerate.
Ack this is going to be a little difficult.
Victoria: Coffee and heat
Kit: Sweets and Victoria
Q: How do they react to awkward silences?
Victoria would most likely not mind it at all. She’s usually doing a ton of things at once, so if there’s silence she’s probably relaxing or she’s thinking of something else entirely haha.
Kit would get annoyed. He’d probably start getting jittery or restless.
Q: Can they swim? If so where did they learn?
Q: What’s one major even that’s shaped who they are?
Victoria had a huge influence from her father. He was one of the greatest mechanics and robotic engineers when she was growing up. When he was at the top, robotics and cyborg engineering was a new thing that was just happening and Victoria was immediately influenced by it and fascinated by it. She tried to be like her father. When hard times fell on her family, she took up the reins and now she’s living on her own running almost a non profit mechanic shop for people who can’t afford a proper mechanics care. Victoria had a pretty good family life but it all changed when her father’s company kind of screwed them over and they were forced to live in the urban streets–but both her father and mother were incredibly supportive of each other.
Kit was sold into a human trafficking ring when he was younger and that kind of molded his personality. He’s incredibly charming and charismatic because he had to appeal to his potential customers, so when he escapes, he can’t really help but continue on and the fact that Victoria is more or less nonchalant about his charm annoys him because he’s worked really hard on it! But at the same time, he’s glad because he starts to find out who he really is.
Q: What things do they value most in life?
Victoria: Honesty, loyalty, support, and courage
Q: Do they believe in giving people second chances? Do they have trust issues?
Victoria: Yes and no. It’s really dependent on the situation. Since she lives in the urban neighborhoods of Genesis, she sees how people can change and restart their life. But there are times where she doesn’t believe someone deserves a second chance. There are some things to her that are unforgivable. For the most part Victoria doesn’t have any trust issues. She’s not gullible, but she likes to pride herself in her good judge of character.
Kit: No. Kit’s kind of brought up in a pretty hard dog eat dog world, so he rarely thinks people should get second chances. He doesn’t see how he can live with the idea of his traffickers having a second chance at a good life or some kind of redemption. And because of this Kit also has a myriad of trust issues.
Q: Your character is having a bad day…what things do they do to make things better again? Is there someone they talk to?
Victoria kind of goes back to her routine. She just fixes mechanical things and robotic things because it’s a soothing action for her. After a while she cools off and she can look back at what made her so upset in retrospect.
Kit kind of runs off and does whatever to distract him. Sometimes that’s walking around town. Sometimes that’s flirting with a lot of people. It always kind of changes depending on his mood, but he definitely falls under the whole distract yourself vibe unlike Victoria.
Thanks for dropping by! What do you think of Kit and Victoria? What characters are you writing? If I were to put the writing up somewhere would you like to read it? I’m curious!
