RP Character Challenge

Welcome to the RP Character Challenge!

We all like to see new characters that are different from what we normally see, but it can be difficult to push ourselves to make characters that are different from what we normally make and think outside the box. That’s where the character challenge comes in.


How the challenge works:
A new challenge will be announced once every two weeks on a Saturday. When the challenge is announced there will be instructions on the current theme’s requirements. The challenge may require you to create a character of a certain age, nationality, or with a certain trait for example.

You are encouraged to take the character in a unique direction, make them your own and different from the others, but the criteria of the challenge must be met. The character must also be a new creation for the challenge, not a pre-existing character for another RP.

10 Days after the challenge is posted, a poll will be created to determine a winner. The winner will have their character on the forums insta!

All characters submitted for the challenge must be submitted in the format below.

If you want to try your hand at creating characters for previously completed challenges and you want to post them here, go ahead, just labeling which challenge they were created for. They will just not be eligible to win that category.

I look forward to seeing everyone’s characters! Good luck!

Elisabeth

Name:
Elisabeth Charlis
Gender:
Female
Age:
6
Background:
Elisabeth is the youngest daughter of the wealthy Charlis family. She has one older brother, Gabriel, and one older sister, Adeline, who are twins. Elisabeth is 8 years younger than her twin siblings and they don’t share the same mother. Due to weak health, Elisabeth has been raised behind closed doors. she’s been forced to stay inside and is homeschooled. because of this, Elisabeth has developed a natural curiosity for the outside world and often sneaks out of the house to explore her surrounding. Her favourite place is the old stables inside the forest behind her house where her best friend is a little kitten which she takes care off and even sometimes naps with

Personality:
Elisabeth is curious, especially when it comes to the outside world. She isn’t really interested in her parents or siblings and rather plays outside. Though she tries to be a good girl, her curiosity often gets the best of her and sneaking into the woods is no longer something she feels guilty about. Though she loves her family and wants to follow their rules, she also wants to learn more and often tries to learn about the plants and animals that live around her house. When meeting others she’s shy but polite as to how she was raised but when it some to kids her age, she is quiet and won’t talk much. She also loves to sing as she always hears her mother sing and sometimes learns songs from the old maiden in the house who she sees as a grandmother figure.

Additional Information:
Favorite color is pink, hates carrots and fish but saves it for her kitty friend. loves to sing and play.
She is surprisingly agile and fast for her age because she runs around the forest a lot and often jumps and runs over roots.

Jammas

Name: Jammas Sayed
Gender: Male
Age: 5 and a half

Background: Jammas Sayed is an Afghan, living in Afghanistan. His mother was killed three years ago, but he’s lucky enough to still live with his father, maternal grandparents, and paternal grandmother. When Jammas was just a little over 2-years-old, he and his family were mostly lucky to escape their home in Farah Province after the Taliban seized control. Although they lost one family member (his mother) in the bombing. For a year, they lived a melancholic life of poverty in the next province over. Even Jammas had to “work”; being used for sympathy, he was placed alone on the street with only a basket to coin-collect. Upon returning to Farah Province, it was not easy for the family to rebuild their life. Slowly, enough money came in again, and with the Afghan laws changing, Jammas has even been able to attend school this year. He’s loving it, despite it still being dangerous with schools being the prime target for the occasional Taliban bomb.

Personality:
Jammas Sayed is a 5-year-old child who enjoys laughing, throwing a ball around, and reading. He’s generous and smart, but can also be very independent and a bit sneaky. One of the smallest kids for his age, that tends to help Jammas sneak around. Especially at home or school when he just wants to be alone, which makes his family worry like crazy. However, Jammas doesn’t seem to get in trouble, as he uses his size and adorableness to worm his way out of any punishment. As for what Jammas makes of the world around him, he’s most unphased, enjoying school and playing football (though they don’t play properly, being so young) with friends or kicking a ball around himself. He just acts like a normal young kid who knows no different.
