Beautiful People (1): Introducing Seraphiel

Beautiful People is a blog meme hosted by Cait @ Paper Fury & Sky @ Further Up and Further In. Every month they post ten questions to get to know the characters in your novels better.

About... 5 minutes ago? I saw this done by the lovely Cari @ My Addiction: Books and here I am writing my own post because even though I'm going out in half an hour and I already had a post planned (for once I scheduled ahead so of course it's not happening XD) I couldn't resist! Writing has taken over recently (Camp NaNo is also coming up), particularly the character I'm going to talk about today.

1) What first inspired this character? Is there a person/actor you based them off?
Seraphiel and the idea behind her story originated after watching the pilot of TV show 'Lucifer'. He is the devil and simply fascinating! Immediately this idea of a female devil popped up and Seraphiel aka Sera was born.

2) Describe their daily routine.
Interrogating souls in Hell, bossing around demons and spending time with her beloved brother Lucifer - the usual ;)

3) If they joined your local high school, what clique would they fit into?
I just wrote a scene in a school where Sera is the epitome of social outcast. She has no people skills, whatsoever. Thankfully she's not the only one... a certain someone is with her on the outside.

4) Write a list of things they merely tolerate. Ex: certain people, foods, circumstances in their lives...
People in general (particularly a certain boy she is forced to spent time with though that may change...), pop music (she's a heavy metal girl) and since she doesn't eat or drink, watching people eat and drink (particularly red velvet cake because it looks so delicious).

5) How do they react in awkward silences?
Continue the silence and make it more awkward by looking everyone in the eye OR swiftly move on from the situation by walking away. Basically avoid awkward silences when around her.

6) Can they swim? If so, how did they learn?
I think so. Logistically I haven't worked out everything angel-related, nor do I have a millennia worth of background history for Seraphiel but I'm so excited to delve into it! Maybe there's an interesting story there :D

7) What is one major event that helped shape who they are?
Falling from Heaven.

8) What things do they value most in life?
Loyalty. Ironic huh, considering ^^
9) Do they believe in giving other people second chances? Do they have any trust issues?
HAHAHAHAHA! No. Sera doesn't forgive and she doesn't forget. Some of this originates from the multitude of daddy issues and some from bad experiences with people who only wanted to get close for power. As you can imagine that went well for them...

10) Your character is having a rough day... what things do they do to make them happy again? Is there anyone they talk/interact with to get in a better mood?
Talking with her brother (about anything other than what has her down, mind you) doesn't fails to put a smile on her face. He has the personality to charm a doorknob and it comes from a place of love which is plentiful in their relationship. I promise you, she's not all bad!

So that is Seraphiel! I'm half  convinced I'm the only one who will like her (this is her first time out in the world O.o) but I do hope you've enjoyed this post.
Would you like to see more writing posts every once in a while?
