Character Sketch #2

So, I figured that since my current project has so many characters, I’ll continue with my character sketches while I get a better sense of them


SHIN (No Last Name)

Gender: Male
Age: 23

Shin is an ambitious genius serving the Blackwood Family as a strategist. He has shaggy black hair and brown eyes.

Originally he was the student of the master tactician Tristan Ivo, who took him under his wing from a young age. Reporting no family name, he is often considered clan-less, despite serving one. When his master vanished, Shin was to take over as the head strategist, but was denied the position due to age and experience. He would go on to win several battles with minimal losses and still not receive recognition. Presently being in charge of strategy in a smaller camp has left him taking on, and winning, riskier battles in order to get the recognition he feels he deserves.

Hopes & Dreams: Recognition for his talents

Fears: Being used and discarded

Hobbies/Habits: Rodan (Kind of like a chess game), losing Rodan pieces (he uses them in his strategy planning), Worrying Rin

Loves: Sweets, Showing up superiors

Hates: Disrespect, Incompetent leaders, People who don’t listen

Other Features: None in particular


Shin was actually the first character to get a role in my story. While he isn’t as solidified as Rin in my mind, I feel he’s a lot of fun to write about. This story has 9 characters. I can’t promise that they will all survive either. Since that means I have 7 left, I’m probably going to keep running this series.

Commentators can pick from one of these ones for my next sketch if they’d like:

  • Locke Blackcourt (Head of the Blackcourt Clan)
  • Alexander Graves (Devoted servant to Locke Blackcourt/Earth Enactor)
  • Roric (Knight of the Grand Edict/Metal Enactor)

Keep Writing!

    Shin sounds a bit like me — sweets, always losing stuff, fearing being discarded, enjoying showing up superiors, etc…
    I have a character called Tristan, too, named after the title hero in the Tristan & Isolde legends. He would probaby be affronted by Shin just because they share some of the same qualities. You know how people are when they meet someone just like them. 😉
