[Cabochon's Scrapbook] For Little Things

Mostly starting this for certain things like whatever, I guess. It's nice to have stuff like this on site. It's so much easier to manage.

Current boxcode borrowed from the general character sheet. Hopefully, I'll get something new so it can be more personal. Maybe. Who knows?

[Cabochon's Scrapbook] For Little Things

Cabochon's Questionnaire

General Information :
1. What is your Name? Cabochon
2. Do you go by a nickname or pet name? Cabo, Gem (yet to be used)
3. How old are you? Five Seasons (or, 7 months ((?))
4. What is your height? 1'3"
5. What is your weight? 19 lbs.

Aesthetics :
1. Describe yourself as you see yourself. Honest, open, determined, straightforward. I can also be blunt, irritable and impatient.
2. Describe yourself as others typically see you. (NOT to be a smart-ass, but please refer to the signature)
3. What is your favorite body feature? My fossilized gemstone, of course!
4. How physically fit are you? Not.
5. How do you typically dress and what is your style? Considering I am a Pycon, I do not believe that clothing suits my daily needs. However, I am highly attracted to clashing colors, probably because they bother my eyes.

Family :
1. Who are your parents and what are they like? My father was definitely the air bubble in the cracked clay. My mother? Solid beast! She took down countless foes with bare hands while my father studied their mangled corpses. Their adventures, from what I know, are... Interesting...
2. Do you have any brothers or sisters? None that I would know of. I was the first, but my parents were always nomadic at heart. I've yet to know or hear of more.
3. What is your extended family like? I have an uncle who deals with Reimancy. Awkward talker, terrible conversationalist. My mother always let me avoid him whenever possible. He's the only one I know of, unfortunately.
4. Do you consider close friends as important or more/less important than family? I consider both equally important. Family is the foundation of which you choose your friends.
5. Do you treat animals like family? I've yet to come in contact with one that has shown prolonged interest in me. So, honestly, I wouldn't know for sure.

Location :
1. Where were you born? Somewhere in this Confusing City, Alvadas.
2. Where do you live now? Alvadas.
3. If you could live anywhere in Mizahar where would that be? I must admit that I am highly fascinated by Avanthal. I've never experienced cold, and they have some very peculiar practices that I find myself intrigued by.
4. Do you have a favorite place to vacation or spend leisure time? Considering that I am making my way in the world currently, I wouldn't know. There was a pool a series of women and I hung out at once, but it was more uncomfortable for me than they realized. I don't hold it against them.
5. Where do you fear to be? Anywhere that could seriously affect my body's composure. Bay cities and desert heats for sure, but as long as I have some relief, I could manage, I guess.

Traits :
1. Do you have any physical weaknesses (disease, scars, and missing limbs?) I am still currently growing out my right arm and my left leg. That doesn't allow me to have much leverage in anything.
2. Are you right handed or left handed? Considering my left hand is used for travel, my right hand takes precedence in other things.
3. What languages do you speak? What do you sound like? Do you have an accent? I only speak Common at the moment. Many who have heard my voice claim I have a high pitched, wailing voice, but not scratchy or throaty. I believe my vocals are very base, maybe with a little bit of higher tunes on soft vowels and strong consonants.
4. Do you have any odd mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? I have a fossilized gem that protrudes out of the center of my chest. It was given to me as an heirloom by my father on his journeys, and I ever since have held it dear.
5. Do you have (or want to get) any tattoos or piercing? Why do you have them (or will get them) ? I don't know if they would benefit me at any point in time. Tattoos may rub off with time, and piercings seem like they'd rip out too easily, should they be pulled. Therefore, I abstain.

Occupations :
1. What is your occupation? I eventually hope to become a clerk at More than Metal.
2. Do you like/dislike your work? Why? Can't say yet.
3. If you could be anything you wanted to, what would you be? Personally, I've always wanted to be that aiding companion; the friend who always has something another needs.
4. What occupation do you admire the most? Why? I highly admire blacksmiths. Their variation and durability in Mizahar is irreplaceable, and their craft is highly demanded of many other occupations besides their own.
5. What occupation do you lest like? Why? It seems, only to me now, that the fashion industry has no place among this world. It seems so out-of-place for such a brutal and unforgiving land. Also, fashion emulates status, and I don't find that fair.

Childhood :
1. What sort of child were you? Manageable, I think. I didn't ask for much. I acted as any young Pycon would: adventurous, curious, dare-devilish. As with all Pycon, however, we mature quickly and readily.
2. What is your favorite memory from childhood? Ah, oh yes, alright. I remember the day my mother shifted her form right before my eyes (a personal magic called "Flux", I believe). From her original beauty to a thing of beast-like proportion, yes, that was most fascinating. She entirely inspired my passion to learn the ability; however, she only knew so much and she wasn't very good at teaching, so she told me to pursue it for myself. She said I would appreciate it more if I did so.
3. What is your worst memory from childhood? I think it was the day my father came home from a terrible accident. Nearly a good chunk of his body was gone. My mother was petrified, as she was the one always there to protect him. He said he was dealing with some "irrational" customers. He never told me what truly happened.
4. What sort of relationship did you have with your parents? I had a pleasant one. I was more attached than most Pycon, I'll admit. But once they had left and continued their adventures, I had to grow up nearly instantly. Currently, I am experiencing those woes of adulthood.
5. Who was your most influential rolemodel? I have yet to meet one besides mine own parents. I don't think parents should count. When I find them, though, I'll let you know accordingly.

Education :
1. What sort of education do you have? Everything I have been taught has come from my parents. I can't read or write, but they highly prioritized my socialization skills over anything. I will admit that I'm not good at much.
2. Do you like/dislike learning? I enjoy learning, particularly because that's what my whole life is about. If I'm going to take my entire lifetime learning about who I'm supposed to be, how can I be adverse to the other.
3. Where or how did you learn most of your skills/abilities? Considering I'm still fairly young, my parents are at the forefront of that. But I am taking new things on.
4. How do you learn best? Through trial and error. If I fail, it only means I haven't found the best way of performing the action.
5. What are your educational goals for the future? I don't have many yet. I've found no significant need for reading, writing or anything of the like. Maybe when I become more settled into Alvadas, I'll pursue it.

Relationships :
1. Do you form close bonds with people? Why? Why not? If my parents weren't so keen on leaving for adventuring, I may have answered differently. Therefore, in their haste to dispatch and return to their old lifestyle, bonding is something that is still very foreign and unnerving to me. I want it, but I'm completely oblivious on how to obtain it.
2. Do you trust people easily? If not, why not? I would like to think I do, but I don't believe so. Sure, I can hold conversation, but after having my backpack stolen on the 8th of Summer, it has made it increasingly more difficult.
3. Do you consider yourself straight, gay, bi, or something else? I don't know. I haven't experienced that sort of relationship before.
4. Have you ever been kissed? If so, describe the first time. In the way of which you're implying no. In general, yes. I've been lovingly kissed on the forehead many times by my mother and father.
5. Have you ever had sex? If so, describe the first time. Goodness, this escalated quickly. No.

Drugs and Alcohol :
1. Have you ever been drunk? If so, describe your first time. I have had no reason to go to an Alvad bar. Therefore, I can honestly say no.
2. Do you like to drink on a regular basis? As aforementioned, no.
3. What sort of alcohol do you prefer? None yet. I don't think Pycon have a need for alcohol. Does it even really affect them?
4. Have you ever tried drugs (mood altering substances)? If so, which kinds and what did you think of them? I have had no contact with such things. My parents believed it was cheap and unruly.
5. What do you think of drugs and alcohol? Be specific.

Likes and Dislikes :
