Stolen from KakariGeikoGirl1. Your first OC ever?
The first character I created that I used consistently was Tiqule (Ti-COO-lay) from an ages-old story called "Tiqule the Unicorn".2. Do you have any personal favorites among your OCs?
Yes. (Bad artist/writer! I'm playing favorites!!)
One's Reka (RAY-kah) Norikawa, one of the protagonists from the "Eternal Rain" universe.
Naoyuki (NAoh-yoo-kee) Kondo ("So Distant") comes in a close second...
followed by Nikkou (NEEK-koh) ("Eternal Rain" universe)...
and Hikari ("Search for the Sky").3. Have you ever adopted a character or gotten a character from someone else?
I'm new to adopts, but I do have quite a few now.
(Left to right: Veli Loshaj, Aelwyn Klein, Chrona, Chase Faulkner, Shay Connelly, Noemie, Koray, Everett, Tristan Grey)4. A character you rarely talk about?
My older OCs don't get as much attention. Rem Walker ("Unraveled") is one of them.5. If you could make only one of your OCs popular/known, who would it be?
Oh, how I torture him with memes and interviews!
Reka: I dislike you. 6. Two OCs of yours that look alike despite not being related?
Nikkou and Takaya (Takaya was first; Nikkou was probably unconsciously modeled after him.)
Takaya ("True Friend")
When uncolored or un-shaded, Sharon and Toki look similar, and so do Reka and Takeshi.7. Are your OCs part of any story or stories?
Yes, the majority of my OCs are characters from my original stories. (Clips of some of them here!)
Eternal Rain PREVIEW - Book 1, Chapter 1CHAPTER 1
JUNE 794 A.E.
The air was thick with tension. Soldiers clad in red flooded out of the army base en masse, throwing the surrounding city’s residents into a panic. “We must bring that woman back at all costs!” The people shoved past passers-by and scrambled to clear a path as the soldiers thundered through the city street on their general’s command.
“What’s going on?” came the whispers. “Don’t you know? Something was stolen from the base last night – some top-secret weapon, I think!” The procession of soldiers vanished through a watery portal that would take them to the Water Gate.
Alarm bells rang through the air as the ugly clouds of billowing
Dreamer - Preview Clip 1Episode/Chapter 6
“What is Haru-san so afraid of?” Asha asks, finally breaking the silence. “Who are ‘they’?”
Hikaru finally looks Asha in the eyes for the first time since she walked in. His eyes are filled with fear and grief. “It’s because of something that happened a long time ago,” Hikaru answers. “Something so terrible, Haru has these horrible nightmares about it. I don’t know exactly what he went through,..but the people who did it to him are chasing him.”
“Why?” Asha asks. “What do they want with Haru-san?”
“I don’t know,” Hikaru replies. “Haru never told me. All I know is that they’ve been chasing him for years. He’s been running for who-knows-how-long. I just happened to come along for the ride when he came to my town a few months ago.”
“I don’t understand!” Asha cries. “Haru-san t
So Distant - PrologueThe school bell rings. All the elementary school children flood through the doors and join friends, or rush to their bus or their parents’ car. A homely little boy rushes through the crowds and down the sidewalk. He skids to a halt in front of five older boys, their arms crossed haughtily over their puffed chests. 8. Do you RP as any of your OCs? If you do, introduce one of your RP OCs here!
“Well, would you look who it is,” one of the boys sneers. “Our favorite little playmate. Ready for a game?”
“The first one to get him to talk wins!” a second boy shouts. He and the others reach out and grab at the little boy’s jacket, clamp their hands on his arms, pinch his exposed white wrists, yank his dark hair and tug at his ears, as he struggles to get free.
“Come on and end it!” the ringleader of the older boys goads the younger boy on. “All you have to do is say 'stop' and it’s all over!”
The younger boy wriggles to get free and yells and screams, but none of the gawking student
Yup! I'll go fandom on you for this one and introduce a Naruto fan character, Toshirou Amaya.
His name was originally Toshirou Noriyuki
but I realized that Noriyuki is a given name, not a surname
. Clicky the artwork to see his bio!
Toshirou: Heya! I'm Toshirou, nice to meet you! ^^9. Would you ever be willing to give any of your OCs to someone else?
Not my story ones, especially.10. Introduce an OC with a complicated design?
The most complicated my OCs get would be... probably Toki Shimeru's "Eternal Rain" design.11. Is there any OC of yours you could describe as a "sunshine"?
Nikkou ~ !
He's cute and sweet, and he's got a super-contagious smile when he's super-happy!12. Name an OC that isn't yours but who you like a lot.
These little cuties are Dewey and Iven! They belong to EllenorMererid
And this is Alex! She belongs to StefanPWinc
And these are --
--Wait...You only asked for one, didn't you? 13. Do you have any troublemaker OCs?
Yup, that'd be Atsuko Shimeru ("Eternal Rain" universe). She loves
getting on people's nerves -- especially her sister, Toki's.14. Introduce an OC with a tragic backstory.
I'd go with Hikari here (he's gotta have one of the worst backstories out of my OCs), but that'd be a bag of spoilers.
Naoyuki's parents disappeared on him one day, leaving him with such deep emotional scars that he develops an avoidant personality disorder and stops speaking. His problems only snowball from there as his other family members begin to shun him, and his schoolmates and teachers label him as "mentally challenged" or "mute".15. Do you like to talk about your OCs with other people?
With certain people (like other artists/writers and family members), yes.16. Which one of your OCs would be the best at biology (school subject)?
Haru Asahi ("Dreamer") would be a whiz at Biology if he could stay in one school for long enough.
He wants to be a doctor someday and already has the skills to treat minor injuries. 17. Any OC OTPs?
Romance is certainly not a dominant point in my writing, but these guys are some of my couples:Toki Shimeru & Reka Norikawa
Shiri Mikichi & Sora
Takeshi Nimahari & Yuki Takishima
Atsuko Shimeru & Toshirou Okino
...All these guys are from the "Eternal Rain" universe.18. Any OC crackships?
No.19. Introduce an OC that means a lot to you (and explain why).
Reka means a lot to me because I admire him a bit -- sure, he isn't perfect; but he owns up to his mistakes, and he stands up for his friends and his beliefs.20. Do any of your OCs sing? If they sing, care to share more details (headcanon voice, what kind of songs they like etc)?
Mara Ndali ("Eternal Rain" universe) likes to sing. (Ooh, good question, I'll add a voice later!) She likes upbeat songs and sings and dances to pop music.21. Your most artistic OC?
That'd be Naoyuki. He likes to draw and bead.22. Is there any OCs of yours people tend to mischaracterize? If yes, how?
Hm, no, not really.23. Introduce an OC that has changed from your first idea concerning what the character would be like?
This is Shuuichi Makino ("Eternal Rain" universe).
When I first created him, he was actually meant to fill the role of a very minor character that was the friend of one of the antagonists -- and that very minor character was actually killed off. I drew Shuuichi and got attached to him. So he became an informant to the Keyholder team in Eternal Rain's first arc. But then he developed beyond that role to become a main character on the Fire Gate side of the cast. He even got his own prequel, aside from having prominent roles in later installments of the series!24. If you could meet one OC of yours, who would it be and why?
I'd love to meet Naoyuki, so I can give him a hug.25. The OC that resembles you the most (same hobby, height, shared like/dislike for something etc?)
Toki, who deals with some of the issues I had in school (petty girls, being in the out-crowd, being athletically-challenged). 26. Have you ever had to change your OC's design or something else about them against your will?
Nope, not that I can think of.27. Any OCs that were inspired by a certain song?
Nope, I usually relate songs to them later.28. Your most dangerous OC?
Satoshi Tetsuyama ("Eternal Rain" universe), a Llanian Guard with a serious mean streak. He can be downright diabolical when he's following his evil father's orders or trying to get the better of his rivals.
(Satoshi is the redhead in the center)29. Which one of your OCs would go investigate an abandoned house at night without telling anyone they're going?
Kita Mikichi ("Eternal Rain" universe) would totally do that, just 'cause she loves to dive headlong into things like tests of courage. 30. Which one of your OCs would most likely have a secret stuffed animal collection?
Kaori Norikawa ("Eternal Rain" universe), who secretly adores cute things, even though she's a tomboy and acts like a brat. Actually the same could be said of Kita, minus the brat part.
(Kaori: Nikkou, you're so cute!!)31. Pick one OC of yours and explain what their tumblr blog would be like (what they reblog, layout, anything really).
Taki Soejima ("So Distant") would have a page covered in sports motifs. She would definitely keep track of upcoming games and events, reblog about wins and losses and things of that sort. 32. Which one of your OCs would be the most suitable horror game protagonist and why?
Hmm, Jun-ai Shen ("Eternal Rain" universe) or Kita, because they're both pretty daring. (Toki or Haru -- or any of the little kids, for that matter, would freak out and run home.
) 33. Your shyest OC?
By far, that'd be Naoyuki.34. Do you have any twin characters?
Nope! But I do have look-alikes in the "Eternal Rain" universe, where they hop between dimensions.35. Any sibling characters?
Toki & Atsuko
Kita & Shiri
Sora & Hoshi ("Eternal Rain" universe)
Joel & Michi ("Search for the Sky") 36. Do you have OC pairs where the other part belongs to someone else (siblings, lovers, friends etc)?
Naoyuki and Dewey are friends 37. Introduce an OC who is not quite human.
This is Veli.
He has a cat ears and a cat tail that he tries to hide, since people make fun of them. But, overall, he's a happy person and likes to make friends.38. Which one of your OCs would be the best dancer?
Asha Hiromitsu ("Dreamer"), who is an avid fan of figure-skating.39. Introduce any character you want.
Meet Takumi, a newbie on Eternal Storm's Keyholder team!
He's socially inept and emotionally awkward --
Takumi: Excuse me?!
Ahem. Sorry. He's impersonal due to his strict, business-like personality. But deep down, he does care.40. Any fond memories linked to your characters? Feel free to share!
So much fun RPing with the guys on theOtaku in my first ever RP group! 41. Has anyone drawn fanart of your OCs? If yes, maybe show a picture or two here (remember sources & permissions!)42. Which one of your OCs would be the most interested in Greek gods?
Takeshi would like stuff like that. He's a bookworm, and he's interested in legends and myths.43. Do you have any certain type when you create your OCs? Do you tend to favour some certain traits or looks? It's time to confess.
YOUNG. I have a hard time drawing
peoples between the ages of 20 and 40...!44. Something you like about your OCs in general:
I think most of my characters are very down-to-earth and relatable -- no matter what crazy powers they have or what wild adventures they go on, they're still very much human. 45. A character you no longer use?
The ones from my older stories, including Rem and Takaya.46. Has anyone ever told you that you treat your OCs badly?
I'm sorreh I abuse my poor characters as the story demands it!!! 47. Has anyone ever (friendly) claimed any of your OCs as their child?
No -- wait, actually, in an RP, someone's character
said Naoyuki was like her child. That kinda counts, right?48. OC who is a perfect cinnamon roll, too good for this world, too pure:
Sora (who is a protective big-brother type) or Nikkou (who won't even say the words "shut up" in a sentence together, unless someone makes him very mad, which rarely happens).49. Which one of your OCs would most likely enjoy memes?
Kita would hop all over these!
Kita: You bet I would! Bring 'em on!! 50. Give me the good ol' OC talk here. Talk about anything you want.
After filling out this meme (and a few others), I realize... I have way too many OCs.
