Zach Knoxton

Post  Zach on Fri Dec 14, 2012 6:54 pm

Yearly updates for 2014 are in parentheses.
Name: Zach Knoxton

Age: 16 (Now 17)

God Parent: Apollo

Mortal Family: Michael and Susanne Blair

Years in Camp: 4(Now 5)

Brief History: As a young child, Zach's life was horrible. He grew up in St. Paul, MN.  He was not appreciated and was often sent to his room and would stay there for the majority of that day.  On his tenth birthday, Zach ran away.  Zach lived in a magical shelter Apollo guided him to in Detroit, MI for two years before being picked up by questing demigods from Camp Half-Blood and taken back to camp. (At Camp, he made friends and was injured in a battle that took place in the woods. He is now back at school [I think. Not sure what I had decided about him.])

Physical Appearance: Zach is five feet and eleven inches tall.  He has fair skin and a slim scar down the left side of his face.  He has a thick mass of light brown curls.  He has opal colored eyes behind slim glasses.  He is thick with muscle, about one hundred and eighty pounds.  He generally wears plaid shirts and jeans. His right knee is twisted from when he broke it when he was two, causing him to walk with a slight limp, but he is still very fast, it just hurts.
Personality: Zach is generally pretty serious although at times he can be pretty happy-go-lucky.  He would take a bullet for a friend, no questions asked.  He is seldom shaken or awkward. Zach speaks when he has something to say.  He is very philosophical and likes to think deeply.  He does not care about much in the world, so that when he loses it, it does not hurt.  He treats everone fairly and once someone gains his trust, he would gladly put his life in their hands but it is very hard to gain his trust. (In the last year, Zach has mellowed out and has become more positive and less prone to gloomy moods.)

Fatal Flaw: He puts too little faith in others.  He rarely trusts people and is often suspicious of kind gestures, as he has never received many.  Therefore he will generally not ask for help, no matter how deadly the situation.

Talents: He is smart and loves art, drawing and writing.

Weapons: Longbow and a Scottish claymore and dirk

Other: His glasses can switch to thermal, night, telescope, microscope, or video camera, vision. A gift from his dad.

You put a lot of effort into your appearance and personality, I'm genuinely impressed.
However, you kinda skirted around the Fatal flaw. You mencioned it in the personality, which is great, but didn't take it further.

The Fatal flaw is not only the shortcoming, but the potential consequences that will result. That's what makes the flaw "Fatal".

For example, for my character Jake, he's incredibly stubborn. Yah, that's a flaw. Many people are stubborn. But Jake, he won't back down from something easily after he put his mind to it. This means that if he's promised to protect someone, he's going to do it in any way even literally taking a bullet for them. To a moderately lesser extreme, he also compulsively works on his projects, going days without eating or sleeping... and to Wes's distaste- showering.

So, add a bit more meat to the Fatal flaw, but other than that I'd say you're good.
Have another admin put their two cents in.

Logic concern in bio... ran away for two years... as a minor. Parents would have been searching everywhere and there would have been notices everywhere. He would have been found unless he went through plastic surgery and changed appearance or was killed in that two years... that's just my logic
