For the record, as an autistic who is sensitive to loud, piercing sounds, that’s a concept that is terrifying.
The obsessive buzzkill.
yeah. That is 100% accurate.
1.) Describe your character’s relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?
This part should be pretty easy. Syl has never met her biological parents. Her mother is a really nasty piece of work, a pretty cut and dry villain. And a succubus. Her father was also a nasty villain, worse than her mother, because humans always have the potential to be terrible. In fact, the circumstances of her parents meeting and conceiving her are super upsetting, and her adopted parents have not told her about it. With her biological father dead, and the mother banished to another world, it seems easiest to just tell her that her parents are gone.
She was adopted at birth by Scrae (who is actually her grandfather on her mother’s side) and Val (who is actually her half brother on her father’s side. Shit gets complicated with this family). She adores her dads completely, and they adore her. They can’t really help it, since she has an aura that makes people love her, and they were both around her constantly for the first nine years of her life. Even now that she’s away at college, Scrae is happy to give her whatever she wants and believes she can never do wrong (though, he has a tendency to think that about all children, and she’s perpetually his little girl). Val may try to set boundaries, but Syl knows him well enough to get around them.
So, yes, she was spoiled completely by Scrae. But she is so naturally sweet-natured, that it turned out OK. She’s not used to people saying “no” to her, but she is constantly concerned with other people being happy, so she never asks for anything that might hurt them.
Val provided enough structure in her life to give her the tools she needs to get along in the world. It’s because of him that she does well at school. After the divorce, Scrae would let her get away with not doing homework or even missing school, but when she was with Val he made her actually do her work, and she eventually realized the value of not goofing off too much.
Though her parents have been divorced now for years, and rarely see each other, she still assumes they’ll get back together someday. She likes to spend breaks from college with one or the other of them, though she has been making her own friends and sometimes goes on trips with them instead.
Hey nerdycanuck: I have some thoughts about Syl.
For everyone else: Syl is Scrae’s granddaughter, but he and his husband (at the time) adopted her as their own child. We haven’t RPed her in a long time, but I’ve been thinking about Scrae, so it got me thinking about his kids. NC and I decided to age her up and do the 30 day characterization challenge for her.
A couple of notes on what we had previously decided about her, but that could potentially change:
I was going to start the 30 day challenge thing in the same post, but now this is long, so I’ll start a new one. But hoping this gets your thought juices flowing, my canadian!
