Beautiful People

And now for the August Edition of Beautiful People (insert applause *here*). I will be doing Reniseb from the Pendant as her character has really developed in the last month (enthusiastic cheers *here*).
And now to cut the babbles and come to the point. The questions (more enthusiastic cheers *here*)!!

Beautiful People August Edition; Reniseb, Daughter Of Tchay: The Pendant
1) What does your character regret the most in their life? 

Hmm, I don't really know that one. Reniseb has been rather spoiled all her life, and she doesn't regret much. I mean there are little things, like the time she didn't feed her pet leopard because she was lazy, and he gave her sad faces the next day and look starved. I guess the thing she regrets most is the time she told her father she didn't want to go to a party because her friends Tseskos would be there, and she was mad at her. She and Tseskos very nearly didn't make up because Tseskos was so hurt that Reniseb didn't come.

2) What is your character's happiest memory? Most 
sorrowful memory? 

Oh gosh! I don't think even I know what my own happiest memory is. Does anyone? I really have no idea for Reniseb. Her most sorrowful memory, is the day she stood with her father and watched the priests seal the door to her mother's tomb.

3) What majorly gets on your character’s nerves? 

As I said, Reniseb was somewhat spoiled all her life, and she is not really capable of taking care of herself. But she absolutely hates being reminded of the fact that she is so helpless. And whenever she tries to prove that she can take care of herself, something goes wrong. It is a major sore point with her.

4) Do they act differently when they're around people as opposed to being alone? If so, how? 

Yes and no. Reniseb has a curious, shy personality that is with her even when she is alone. But she also feels grown up and capable alone, but when she is with other people, she realizes how young and helpless she is, and it changes her actions in a way that I can't really explain.

5) What are their beliefs and superstitions? (Examples: their religion or lack of one, conspiracy theories, throwing salt, fear of black cats.) 

Reniseb believes in the gods of Egypt and in the sun god, Ra who is supposed to be the king of gods. She is terrified of Khus, the ghosts of the dead who were not good enough in life to lie in peace until the afterlife. Some seek to do good in the world, that Ra may have pity on them, these are the Khefts, but most seek to ruin the lives of others and drag them down into the shadow lands of Set. 

6) What are their catchphrases, or things they say frequently?

Reniseb doesn't really have any particular things that she says, just the common exclamations of the times: gods! Ra! son of Set! But sometimes she will call herself Daughter of Set when she is very annoyed with herself, though in Egyptian mythology Set had no daughters.  

7) Would they be more prone to facing fears or running from them? 

It really depends on the fear. If Reniseb were to meet a Khu she would run, if she were to meet a wild animal or something like that, she would run. But her deeper fears, mostly the fear of being laughed at, she has no choice but to face. She bears that pretty well, outwardly. But when faced with the loss of someone she loves, she wants to run and tries to do so, but you can't really run away from something like that, and she spins out of control inwardly and outwardly. 

8) Do they have a good self image? 

Again, in private Reniseb feels good about herself, but I would say that she has very low self esteem, but she acts like she thinks more of herself. That doesn't really make sense. Hmm. For instance, if someone tells her she is helpless and silly, she thinks inwardly he/she is right, I am helpless and silly. But  she defends herself outside while ridiculing herself inside.

9) Do they turn to people when they're upset, or do they isolate themselves?

Being rather spoiled, and always having had a loving mother and father (until my story begins) Reniseb is in the habit of turning to her parents for everything that goes wrong. But with the death of her mother, and separation from her father, she is slowly learning that she is going to have to bear some things by herself. But in general, she wants to turn to people. And in the story, she chooses Ukani as the recipient of her helplessness, scattered thoughts, and confused understanding of herself. Though he seems mocking and unkind most of the time, he takes everything she throws at him in just the right way, and is the perfect person to bear it all. I would say that Reniseb is making Ukani carry a lot of her troubles by the end of the book, but again, he can take it.

10) If they were standing next to you would it make you laugh or cry?

This is a rather confusing question. If I was standing next to Reniseb, I don't think I would do either. But if I was her friend (say, Tseskos for instance) I would laugh and cry with her. On the whole, her life's story is a happy one at the beginning of the book but I don't think I would laugh. At the end, the ending is mostly happy and I don't think I would laugh or cry. At certain parts in her story, I laugh. And at others (yet to be written, but makes me cry if I think to much about it) I would cry. If you mean, in terms of physical appearance, I would laugh or cry. But I would probably smile. She is quite lovely, if she would only admit it to herself. She might have better self esteem.
