[OB] Describe a Character in One Word

36 posts in this topic

Like it says in the title. Describe a character in one word, whether it relates to their personality, story, clothing, or just how or what you feel about/for them.

  • Szeth -- Pitiable
    • His past is just so sad and I really feel for him
  • Vasher -- Complicated
    • Who knows what's going on with this dude, there's so much we don't know about him, and even the stuff we do know is very complicated and mysterious
  • Dalinar -- Good-Dude
    • Spoiler

       

      • The hyphen totally makes that one word :ph34r:
      • He's done some bad stuff, but he realizes what he's done, and takes responsibility for it, which I really respect and admire
      • And on top of all of it, he lives up to his reputation and he keeps his word
      • Maybe the word should've been Respectable

I get what you mean, Moash is something else, although I still like him in a strange way, because sometimes I just want to throttle him.

I did check and yeah swearing isn’t allowed.  It says anything above “crap” isn’t allowed.  

I could be wrong about this, but I think you can use the curse words from the books, so we could call Moash, the storming traitor.  Hope this helps.

EDIT: Also I love the Storm-depressed.  Haha it’s so great.

I thought this was a Kingkiller Chronicles reference and didn't understand the relation. TIL Devi means goddess...which I guess I still don't understand the relation...

Anything more strenuous than "crap" gets auto-corrected to cosmere words, e.g.: storm, rust, damnation, WTF.  

EDIT: I thought there was a replacement for "WTF", my bad.

Just some fun linguistics on this one; For people who don't know, the Acheron is one of the rivers in Greek mythology over which souls are ferried in Hades (along with Styx, Phlegethon, Lethe, and Cocytus). The name Acheron comes from the Greek word Akherousai which means "Marsh-like water"...
