Character development - Diego Soto
1.) Describe your character’s relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?
Diego has a good relationship with both but they did not support his dream of going into martial arts when he was a kid. They are very protective over him. After being revived, though his parents are still alive he cannot bring himself to meet them while he is in his skeletal state. They currently still think he is dead.
2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?
Well he’s boney with a small crack atop his cranium.

That crack on his head came from when he first battles Nidhogg.
4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?
Back then pretty average, he never thought himself unattractive but he never let it cloud his thoughts nor pay much attention to it. Currently with having no skin, he too much rather not see his self as much as possible or let others see him.

27.) Pick two songs that describe your character at two different points of their life, and explain why you chose them.
Skin to bone - Linkin Park
During his sacrifice as the death tree entangles them turning their skin to bone and the sword steel to rust.
Aur Kurs - Oomph!
I feel this song is perfect for when he gets captured by Dubrashka and left in dungeon chained up as she saps his spiritual powers away from him.
28.) If your character’s life was a genre, what would it be?
Horror Fantasy XD

30.) And finally: Write a letter to your character, from yourself.
I know you don’t want to worry them but I really think you should at least let your parents know you have returned. And also, I know they are morons but please give give Jase and Jen a chance XD
