Relationships and history: Part 2(Day 11): You guessed it, I’m going to breeze through them today.
What were they like as a child? What was their favorite toy? Favorite game? Playmates?
What did they want to be when they grew up?:
Miserable. Dorian’s childhood was hell. He didn’t have toys, play games, have playmates, or anything to be happy about. All he had, was his sister, who he had to share those punishments with. Dorian’s only desire, as a child, was to survive and be free of his father. There was nothing else to want. And he got it when he was eight, but not until after he had to witness something truly painful.
Relationships and history: Part 2(Day 12):
Describe their best and worst memories from childhood.:
This is pretty obvious. There were no good memories at all, so to name a best one is impossible. His worst memories were the first eight years of his life. He lived in constant shifts between anger and fear. He wanted to save Raina, at the same time as save himself, and he grew angry not just at how they were treated, but at his inability to do anything about it.
Relationships and history: Part 2(Day 13):
Where (and when) did they grow up? How did they view it as a child, and did that change as they matured? How do they feel about the place now?:
Dorian lived the first eight years of his life in his father’s home, in a small village of Kadmos. It was hell on earth. He hated it. Now, the place does not exist. Dorian burned it to the ground. From eight even till now, Dorian has no home, and lives in whatever empty space he can freely occupy just to have shelter from the elements.
Relationships and history: Part 2(Day 14):
Do they, or have they in the past, had a mentor? What was their relationship with this person, and how has it changed since then?:
What sort of education have they had? Do they want more?:
Who was their idol growing up? Who was the first person they fantasized about?:
His sister. She was the only one who cared about him. He envisioned her as both a mother and the ideal woman. He never had romantic thoughts about her, but he loved her as both sister and mother, and wanted to protect her from all harm especially after what he had witnessed on the day they escaped their father.
Relationships and history: Part 2(Day 15):
Who is their closest friend, and why? What do they like to do with this person?:
Dorian has no friends. The Nightmist Clan is the closest to it, and even then, he does not know what to call them. He has had no experience otherwise with people who were not out to benefit themselves in everything they do. People who care for anyone other than themselves is limited, in his point of view, and so it is difficult to convince him you are among the exception to the rule. Kain Nightmist would be the closest thing to a friend, but Dorian views him merely as a business associate that is easy to get along with.
Do they have any rivals? Who and why?:
No. To have a rival one must be seeking a similar goal. Dorian has yet to find someone who is truly seeking something similar that he feels he must compete with. Dorian does not care about competition.
Have they ever been betrayed? By who, and how did it affect them?:
Dorian has never really trusted anyone other than his sister. I do not think he would consider his father’s actions a betrayal, because Dorian was too young to have trusted yet. He kept his distance all through his life, and so no one has given him a means to be betrayed. That does not make him any more trusting however. I suppose though, from a larger perspective, it could be considered a betrayal.
Be prepared for other group postings. I may actually get this finished before November because of that. The rest of the questions are in small numbers for each day, so depending on how much there is to answer, I may get this done in the next ten days. Of course, then I’ll have to post about other characters, like Li Shaoshen and perhaps Aleksander Zachery from my Repeating History stories.
