Character sheet- Jamie

Filed under: Character Sheets — Joana @ 11:52 pm

Since I have the most important characters done, I decided to work boy-girl-boy-girl etc.  Next will be Misty, and then Devin and then… whoever else I might think to throw in here.

Part 1: The Basics

What is your full name?

Jamie Allen Bishop

Where and when were you born?

James Allen Memorial Hospital, November 1’st, fifteen years ago. Apparently my parents didn’t gender-test me and were hoping for a girl, so they didn’t have a boy name prepared.

Who are/were your parents?  (Know their names, occupations, etc)

My mother Wendy is a housewife and my father, Elliot, is a businessman.

Do you have any siblings?  What are/were they like?

Nope, I’m an only child.

Where do you live now, and with whom?  Describe the place and the person/people.

I go to Clearbell now. My parents somehow managed to get me into a dorm room with my best friend Devin, so I guess live with him? I’m home for most longer vacations.

What is your occupation?


Write a full physical description of yourself.  You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks.

Uh, my hair’s black and my eyes are blue. I’m like, five-seven maybe and Devin likes to say I’m ‘skinny as hell’. I die my hair red sometimes, but not usually all of it. Like, my bangs, which my parents used to freak out about but now I guess they don’t care.

To which social class do you belong?


Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses?


Are you right- or left-handed?


What does your voice sound like?

I’ve never thought about it

What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?

Nothing I can think of

What do you have in your pockets?

A couple broken colored pencils

Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?

Well. I’m hypersexual despite the fact that I have never had sex. Does that count?

Part 2: Growing Up

How would you describe your childhood in general?

Weird? I came out as gay in seventh grade and my parents apparently decided that shipping me off to art school was better than having to deal with me.

What is your earliest memory?

I honestly can’t say.

How much schooling have you had?

I’m currently a freshman in high school.

Did you enjoy school?

I like Clearbell, but before that, not so much.

Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities?

School I guess

While growing up, did you have any role models?  If so, describe them.

I really loved watching the Ellen DeGeneres show. I think I wanted to be just like her.

While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family?

I was a spoiled only child. Although sometimes I wonder just how much of it was love and how much of it was ‘give the kid a cookie to shut him up’.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Ellen DeGeneres, apparently. Though I never had much of an interest in girls, so that’s a bit of a problem.

As a child, what were your favorite activities?

I loved drawing. My mom used to put them up on the fridge when I was really little. I’m sure she would’ve continued but my drawings got a lot less appropriate.

As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display?

I climbed trees a lot. You may see where I’m going with this.

As a child, were you popular?  Who were your friends, and what were they like?

Eh, I had Devin. I don’t need a lot of friends.

When and with whom was your first kiss?

Sixth grade. I told this kid in my class that I was gay (I looked it up on the internet cause I was a smart little bugger) and he wanted to know what ‘gay’ was.

Are you a virgin?  If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity?

Yes, I am. Not without protest of course.

Part 3: Past Influences

What do you consider the most important event of your life so far?

I dunno. A lot of stuff has happened in my life.

Who has had the most influence on you?

Probably Devin. He was the one who suggested to my parents I go to Clearbell when he saw I was having so much trouble at our school, for instance.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Living this long, with how much trouble I get myself into.

What is your greatest regret?

I’m kind of still living it…

Do you have a criminal record of any kind?

Hah, no, thank God.

When was the time you were the most frightened?

Oh, God. Those first few days at Clearbell. Fucking terrified. I’m not used to art kids.

What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you?

I don’t get embarrassed.

If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why?

I’m not sure.

Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic?

A little of both, probably.

What is your greatest fear?

Rejection, from… someone.

What are your religious views?

I wasn’t raised religious, so I guess I’m indifferent.

What are your political views?

It’s a big mess is what it is.

What are your views on sex?

Can I have some?

Are you able to kill?


Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love?

I don’t know. Give me time to find one and I’ll tell you.

What do you believe makes a successful life?

Having no regrets

How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings (i.e. do you hide your true self from others, and in what way)?

I like to think I’m pretty open.

Do you have any biases or prejudices?

People-specific, yes. General no.

Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances?  Why do you refuse to do it?

Telling me to act straight will not work. I have no idea how, mostly.

Part 5: Relationships With Others

In general, how do you treat others (politely, rudely, by keeping them at a distance, etc.)?  Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how?

I can get along with pretty much anyone.

Who is the most important person in your life?


Who is the person you respect the most, and why?

Honestly? I don’t know.

Who are your friends?  Do you have a best friend?  Describe these people.

Well, I think I’ve mentioned Devin enough for you to get the idea. Yeah, he’s my friend. There’s that junior guy in visual arts that I guess is trying to be nice to me, but I dunno.

Do you have a spouse or significant other?


Have you ever been in love?  If so, describe what happened.

Let me get back to you on that.

What do you look for in a potential lover?

Smart, funny, preferably blond.

How close are you to your family?

It varies

Have you started your own family?  If so, describe them.  If not, do you want to?  Why or why not?

No, and I really doubt I ever will.

Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help?

I think you can guess the answer by now.

If you died or went missing, who would miss you?

My family would. Despite the rather questionable upbringing, I know Mom and Dad care for me.

Who is the person you despise the most?

Most of the kids from my old school.

Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict?

Conflict finds me anyway.

Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations?

Not really

Do you like interacting with large groups of people?  Why or why not?

Sometimes. Depends on my mood.

Do you care what others think of you?

I care what some people think of me. Not so much others.

Part 6: Likes And Dislikes

What is/are your favorite hobbies and pastimes?

Drawing, painting, stuff like that. Also I have to say I love a good bubblebath.

What is your favorite color?


What is your favorite food?

Spaghetti with meat sauce

What, if anything, do you like to read?

I don’t read a lot

What is your idea of good entertainment (consider music, movies, art, etc.)?

I watch a lot of movies

Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs?  If so, why?  Do you want to quit?

I don’t do any of those

How do you spend a typical Saturday night?

Just goofing off or getting work done for a class

What makes you laugh?

A good joke

What, if anything, shocks or offends you?

Nothing really fazes me anymore.

What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to amuse yourself?

Probably make sure Devin stayed up, too.

How do you deal with stress?

Screaming is good.

Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan?

Surprisingly, I usually do have a plan. They just don’t always work.

  1. Your names strike me immediately – my husband’s cousin, to whom he is the closest, is named Misty and her son’s name is Devon. I love coincidences like that!
