Tell me about your OCs James and Charlie. What kind of stuff do they like? What's their favorite color? Favorite food? Biggest regret?
Charlie grew up in a quite poor family, due to his father's gambling addiction and as a last resort he turned to stealing at about 16 years old, to get some money to be able to get away from his family and start a new, better life. His dream would've been to go to some type of art school, since art is his biggest passion but realistically he knew that the chances of making money on that wouldn't be very high so he was intending to do something else. Only he ended up being swept up in the criminal side of things, working with a small group of people. It was there he learned how to use his skills in art to forge documents or paintings and such, and how to lie and trick people and many similar things. At this point he didn't feel the need to pursue a higher education, this was fun and provided him with all the money he could want and need. Now he could actually afford nice, even fancy things. After a few years he left the group and spent quite some time in Europe, namely in Italy and France. Eventually he was caught back in the states, which was when he was approached by an agency, who offered him a deal. They could use someone with his skill set, someone who was good at getting in and out of places unnoticed, could easily dissapear and blend in, and so on. They offered Charlie a chance to work for them as a spy/secret agent instead of going to prison, and he was going to stay under their supervision for as long as his prison sentence would be. Not wanting to go to prison, Charlie took the deal. It was incredibly hard work, but eventually he settled in and actually liked the job. For the first time in many years, Charlie felt like he had found a place where he belonged, with people he could genuinely trust.
As for things he likes, art is the biggest one. Some of his favorite painters are from the Renaissance. He also quite like fancy things in general, he couldn't afford such things growing up, but now when he can afford it he buys it.
Favorite color I'm not sure, but as for food probably something Italian or French. Risotto is probably high up on his list.
Biggest regret is a tricky one, but I think it would have something to do with leaving certain people behind. There's been a person or two that he's genuinely loved but ultimately left. Partly because of lack of trust (he's got major trust issues) and because he felt like he couldn't stick around, because being in one place for too long would be very risky and could lead to him being caught. Probably left without much of an explanation too.
James is a very nice and kind person. He's very easy to get along with and if you need help he will be there for you. He's a very non violent person, would even call himself a pacifist.
He had a rather normal upbringing, with a really nice and supportive family. Even from an early age, he knew that he wanted to have a job to help people so he decided quite early on that he wanted to be a doctor, and worked really hard for that. Some time in his teens he came out as gay to his family and they were very supportive. They really were a good family and did a lot of fun things together, one of the favorite things they did together was camping and/or hiking which gave James a genuine interest in being outdoors and in nature.
Another interest of his, which might just be the biggest one is playing the piano. He grew up learning it and still plays regularly. You could probably say it's a passion of his.
Favorite color could be blue, at least that's the color I associate him with 😆
I haven't really thought about a favorite food to be honest, but James is not picky. If he cooks, he'll probably pair the meal with a nice salad, of it fits of course. If he orders takeout, Thai and Chinese food are probably high up on his favorite list.
Biggest regret is a tough one, I'm not really sure what that would be, sorry!
But it was really fun to get an ask, and feel free to hit me up with more questions, I love to gush about my OC's. :)
