Annoyingly all-knowing, charming, logical, understanding, humble, incredibly powerful, easy going, likes to tease, handsome, old-school
Is your character bold or shy? Bold, he doesn't have the luxury of being shy
Talkative or Taciturn? Somewhere in between, he talks when necessary and listens when necessary
What most irritates, embarrasses, or bores your character? Younger vampires pushing their limits beyond what they can handle, anyone messing with his people, unnecessary cruelty, incorrect historical teachings, predictable romance novels
How would your character complete the sentence “My life is full of idiots whom I wouldn't trade the world for.”
Other things I thought of while filling out this form:
Jaycob was forced into opening Pandora's box by a combined effort of his 3 brothers in order to release Hope from her captivity. They felt it was the only way to stop humans before they destroyed the planet. He did not agree with his brother's views and fought the mind control, ultimately releasing pain and suffering onto humanity, as well as the bane of the Shadows and the Vampiric curse, both of which were unforeseen consequences of Pandora's box not being opened when it was intended.
