Character Question  Post [1] Ľ


I thought I'd post this here as I may not be the only one wondering about this.

I know that your own characters can't be related but can two different members have people that are?

Thanks

Of course! We've had siblings, half-siblings, a father and son...that's it...LOL. You can have characters be related to other characters as long as they are done by two different RPers. In fact you personally can actually have two related characters if you really want. J actually RPed both the father and son I mentioned. Just (obviously) you can't have a scene between them so in the end it makes more sense to have someone else RP it.

Natalia,

In a word? Yes. Itís exceptionally tricky to organize, but it is possible to make your character related to another personís character. It involves intense collaboration and itís not something you can do without your writing partnerís permission, but I can think of several instances in which characters have shared back-story and/or genetics. Prime examples include:

- Rafael Lamaroux and Simone Perry were half brother and sister.
- Rozaliya Donkova and Julianna DiPallo were twin sisters.
- Matthieu Dumas and Andre Dumas were brothers.
- Ashton Greene and Lucian Michaud are daughter-in-law and father-in-law
- Lily Grace Hamilton and Fredrick Worthington are sister and brother.
- Jean Sauveur and Luc Danier are brothers.

If I were you, Iíd ask any of the RPers who have written characters who are related to one another how they collaborated and if they have any pointers on creating shared histories. Also, be sure to explicitly discuss how you and your RP partner intend to work together. Personally, if I have shared history with another personís character, I like to double (and triple) check whenever the situation allows. Iíve seen characters with shared histories work beautifullyóbut Iíve also seen it crumble and leave one member awkwardly hanging or bad blood between both RPers. Figure out each otherís styles and plans before you do anything drastic, and I guarantee you, itíll be smooth sailing.

Good luck!

Well at the moment I wouldn't be doing anything. I was wondering first since Bella is looking for her father that something may come of that (If anyone would like to have a go with me)

Otherwise I was thinking about a future character.

Thanks again.
