Alright Cedar, let’s start with your name.
….Right then, do have any nicknames?
“You may call me ‘Cedar the Great,’ ‘Cedar the Magnificent,’ ‘Cedar-the-faerie-who-is-better-than-me-in-every-way,’ or just ‘Cedar’ for short. Call me an insect though, or anything suggesting I am small, and I shall take a needle to your foot.”
What does your real name mean?
“It’s a kind of tree that’s pretty tall. Y’hear that? Tall.”
How do you pronounce it again?
When were you born?
“I can’t really remember. I think I was born somewhere ‘round late summer, maybe…?”
You can’t even remember your own birthday…? I mean, uh, okay then. So are you male or female, Cedar?
“I. AM. MALE. DO YOU HAVE TO ASK? REALLY?”
Yes, actually, I did. Now, how old are you?
“I think I’m somewheres ‘round 64 maybe? Maybe I’m 200? 31? Or maybe it was 64…”
I’ll just go with 64, then. And you are a part of what race?
“Well that should be obvious. Imma Faerie.
Yet you lack wings?
"Is there a problem with that?"
No, not at all. What alignment are you a part of?
“I don't care.” (Neutral)
Alright, so what do you do for a living?
“I’m a treasure hunter, of course!”
“What was that?”
N-nothing. Anyway, haven’t you stolen stuff before? Wouldn’t that make you thief as well?
“NO. Yes. MAYBE. No. Maybe…… Yes.” *shifty eyes*
Moving on now. Where do you live?
“Nowhere for long! Too busy treasure huntin'!”
Aaaaw, it’s homeless.
A-anyway, let’s have a physical description, shall we?! Stand up tall… *cough* And I’ll describe how you look.
*eyeroll* Oh brother…
Author's notes on appearance:
He stands at about five inches tall and barely weighs little more than a pound. For faerie standards, he’s actually pretty muscular. On his back are two long, jagged scars which are assumingly where his wings once were. They appear to have been torn out. He also has bite marks on him, “scars from previous battles with cats, birds, and insects,” he tells me.
His hair is a rich brown in color, but otherwise fairly plain. It’s a bit on the curly side and is actually pretty soft to touch. (But I don’t recommend you pet his head because he just jabbed me with that blasted needle again.) It’s also fairly wispy and messy in appearance. He doesn’t keep it very long compared to most faeries.
Cedar’s eyes are a bright, golden yellow in color, like the center of a daisy. They have a sort of sparkle in them, as though you can see his adventurous spirit behind them. They’re large and expressive and peep out from behind his fringe in a cute sort of way, I’ll admit. They’re also almond shaped and angled upward.
Like a typical faerie, Cedar has a pretty, feminine looking face with tan skin. It’s oval in shape, with a softly pointed chin and a lean jawline. He’s got a bit of a big mouth. That combined with his large eyes makes his face very expressive and easy to read.
Upon sniffing him, he smells like dirt. He really needs a bath.
“Getchur sniffer away from me!”
Alright, all finished. Now on to your personality. So, what are the things you like?
“Sparkly things and food and buttermilk and Cornelia and when people acknowledge how great I am and adventure and treasure…”*continues to list off things*
An hour later…
*pokes* "Hey, you sleepin'?"
*wakes up* O-oh… n-next question? *yawns* Alright, lets see here… What do you hate?
“I hate them giants and predatory birds, and cats are really annoying…Oh, and I hate eggplants. They’re nasty. But above all, stairs…. I hate stairs…”
So what are you good at?
“I’m fast, I’m strong, I’m great at hidin’ and findin’ stuff, I’m smart, did I mention I’m strong? And also…" *continues to list off things*
Well, that may be a bit stretching things there. But I’ll admit you have quite the tenacity. You’re also pretty stealthy and you seem to know how to survive on your own. You’re stubborn and brave, and you seem to know a lot about wildlife and plants.
“Yes, yes, that too.” *nods*
So, do you have any weaknesses?
“Whatchoo talkin’ about?”
Well, you do seem to have a severe case of little-man syndrome, anger-management issues, and you’re a bit… out there in the head sometimes. You’re also missing your wings as well. And it can’t be easy to get around when you’re so small, right?
I will use this. *points needle at threateningly*
So do you have any goals in life?
“I’m gonna be the best treasure hunter out there, of course!”
What about fears? Be honest, now…
“I don’ fear nuthin!”
Really? Because you seem to get nervous around cages. And with how small you are, you’ve gotta fear being squished, right? And also being eaten- OW!
“You were warned.”
*sucks on finger* You sure follow through. So do you have any magic?
“I gots an itty bit of Nature Magic, Earth Magic, Light Magic, and Shadowmancy in me, but I haven’t practiced with them much so far.”
(2mp Nature, 1mp Earth Magic, 1mp Light Magic, 1mp Shadowmancy)
I see. Interesting combination.
Author's analysis on personality:
Cedar shows a case of blatant, little-man syndrome. He simply hates humanoid races that are bigger than him, and hates being manhandled as well. It is best not to show him disrespect or mention his size unless you like dealing with annoying pricks. Whether you mean to be rude or not, he'll take the size-mentioning very offensively.
He acts very cocky, as though he were a million and then some times his actual size, but he really doesn't appear all that imposing. He also has a very curious way of thinking and viewing things, and I'm having trouble figuring out if he's just misunderstood or really totally bonkers. Probably the latter.
He does have his good points though. He's headstrong and tenacious and never gives up, and he's good at picking up on how things work very quickly. He does pretty well as a survivor, at least. He's pretty honest in his opinions but also thinks very highly of himself and refuses to admit to having any weakness.
He's got a fiery, passionate spirit though. And a good bit of spunk, too. He craves excitement and adventure and can be crazy adrenaline addict. And deep down, he's probably a nice guy.
But he's also really blunt, pesky, and quick with that bloody needle.
“Hey, what's all that writing you're doing?”
*puts quill down* What writing? Let’s talk about your history now.
“My what now?”
You know, your past. How did you become the person you are today?
“I don’t remember much about those days…”
Oh? Are we being shy? Well. that's pretty unexpected.
“I don’t want to talk about it, y’hear?!”
Okay okay, sheesh. So how much money do you have?
“Coins are too heavy for Corn. So I don’t carry any.”
Do you have any weapons?
“I have a sharp fae knife, and my magic could work too if I practiced more. And of course, you’ve already met my trusty needle.”
Yes, yes I have… What about magic items?
“Nope. Ain’t got any of that stuff that goes sparkly.”
Are you alone all the time or…?
“Cornelia! She’s my pet chicken. I call her Corn for short.”
…I suppose that counts.
So… would you say you’re good at making friends or no?
“Well, I’m plenty nice, methinks. But for some reason, other faeries don’t stick around me for long. And I don’t like most other folks because they like to look down on me. They treat me like a pest all the time.”
I wonder why… *cough* I mean, ah, how ‘bout romance, huh? Are you a heartbreaker or the heart that is broken?
“Nunna your beeswax.” *pulls out needle*
W-well, can you at least tell me if you’re single or not?
“No, of course not. I have Cornelia, stupid.”
“You heard me.”
….Nevermind. I don’t need to know.
"So anyway, why were you askin' me all these questions again? Hey, wait a minute! Get back here, you! HEY!!!” *runs after*
And so concluded this interview.
