Personality Traits

Uhm, hi. I know this might sound bad to some of you, but I've always had a problem with naming traits with canon characters, mostly because they're not my characters. I just don't have that connection with them to really understand their personalities and thought process, so I was wondering if y'all could help me with, well, naming their traits.

NO. Not asking you to tell me how to write them, just asking you to tell me your thoughts on... who you think the characters are...

OTL, this is not coming out right, but please, it would be a relief just to get a few words to work off of.

I know, I know. I should be able to figure these things out myself. Bad writer, bad! But it's embarrassing asking un-anon and I'm too shy to go find a beta (or ask what a beta really does besides fixing typos(?)) as un-anon and tell them my predicament. Kind of a beginner, here. /awkwardturtle

If, uhm, you'd people like to help out a fellow peep, replying is most appreciated and questions are okay. If you think I need to GTFO, please tell me and I'll be on my way.

And if this doesn't belong in the discussion post, uhm... I don't know where it should belong? It doesn't seem to really fit with the "asking a mod" thing. Erm. School me?

what the juice. talking to people should be easier on the internet.

idk, often characters change from fic to fic, from TV to books and to comics... So, I'll shoot.

Dresden: had a difficult past so he intends to 1) help others, like new mags 2) add humor as much as possible. Disorganized. Courageous and decisive, a.i. he does staff as soon as he decides on it. He lacks connection to others, partly that's why he has Mister, but he's ok with it and copes well.
Murphy: well, as in books. Strong but with undercurrent vulnerability. Wants to prove herself, carrier oriented. Judges fast, white and black.
Bianca: idk, vampire psych and all... I like her in TV series, where she can be nice on a whim and not actualy evil.
Marcone: logical, consistent in his goals, energetic. Nice sense of humor, not enough chances to exercise it. Smug. Loyal.
Michael Carpenter: nice, traditional kind of guy, family oriented.
Thomas Raith: conflicted, lightheaded, artsy. Romantic.

Thank you for replying! I understand that people have different perspectives and writing styles, so I was little wary about asking.

Much love to you~!

You're very welcome! Though I'm afraid I wasn't of much help.
It would be interesting to know how you see DF characters. =D
