As the tittle would suggest, just put down any mannerisms that your character displays on a regular basis. It could be a catchphrase, a sound they make, a movement or just about anything that they do or say often. For example, my character has the tendency to go "hmm" when in deep thought.

Tends to act overly nervous and dorky around those she considers her heroes.

Such as Feral Nova...who she has met only twice

Because his hands are metaphorically covered in blood, the Voice Unheard obsessively washes them. No matter how long or how hot the water however, they never become clean, enough.

Loves Karaoke but because of his vocal condition, will routinely sit in amongst the audience and lip-sync. Vicariously singing through them. Provided they meet his unwavering standards of excellence.

Aww, those are actually kinda said. The first one is almost like a desire for some sort of redemption [or he's just trying to hide the evidence! >_<], and the second one...well, he wants to sing but he can't and you just wanna hug him!

As much as possible, I've always tried to avoid saying that Abigail is nervous. But when she is [in social situations] she's constantly playing with her hair [most commonly twirling it and pulling on it].

Vincent use to chain smoke a horrid brand of cigarettes from Gothic in an attempt to help deadend his enhanced sense of smell. Since loosing his vision, he no longer smokes. But now he has a nervous tendency to pick at the handle of his cane, or roll a coin of some sort across his knuckles.

Has the compulsive need to cook when stressed. His mom use to teach him how to cook when he was a kid, so it calms him whenever he does it by himself.

Sarah and Lara are identical twin sisters that very few can tell who is who. They love to pretend to be one another to trick people, have a good laugh and see how long it takes anyone to spot them for who they really are.

Helena has a habit of trying to read through people, even those she deeply cares about. She could of inherited the habit from her mother and father, her childhood training, or even both.

A lot of anxious mannerisms (e.g. fidgeting, inability for the eyes to settle on one spot [i.e. always analysing for traps, escape routes, etc.], toying with objects in her hands) even in mundane situations, but in actual tense situations these vanish and she appears more calm. Not because she is any more calm or trusting than usual; but analysis becomes more focused, and she's committed to the act.

However, many of the personas she adopts are highly anxious personality types anyway.

She'll also - subtly or overtly - flirt with virtually anyone, man or woman, to gauge reactions for general purpose.

Is aggressively superficial. To the point of always being late do to her obsessive grooming rituals. In her mind money does not grant one power. Appearance is the only real power as far as she is concerned. Millionaires get murdered. Models seldom do.

He can talk telepathically but only with eye contact and a few other mind based moves. He's always giving a piercing stare.

  • Due to her speed, Zephyr has no patience for eating at restaurants where she has to sit and wait for her food. Fast food is the only way to go and she can barely tolerate that.
  • She also hates shopping since their seems to be long lines all the time.
  • Any activity that requires any kind of waiting or patience is incredibly boring for Zephyr.
  • When Zephyr goes through a boredom spell, she usually passes the time by playing a game in her head or thinking of any number of things, anything so she won't be bored.

Cares deeply for the Nihonto Khan's resident stray, but considers emotional attachments a weakness. So she is constantly at war with her self as she continuously suppresses her feelings. An exhausting existence to say the least.

Doctor Dominion has an inconsistent accent and pronunciation. He normally speaks with a low English accent, but rotates it with Spanish, German, French, Nigerian, Russian and several other accents. He also pronounces words according to the accent that he is using. He speaks with all of the accents flawlessly and does this so that no one can determine his true origin.

When operating in Africa on a mission, Skardas witnessed the slaughtering of various endangered animals by poachers. Since then, he's repulsed by the sight of meat and has become a vegetarian.

Skardas gets excited when he hears different languages he has yet to learn and finds other languages very calming to listen to.

Arthur had developed a serious phobia of being left alone due to a traumatic incident that he experienced as a child. For that reason, he keeps a series of A.I. around him at all times as a substitute for when organic life is not available. When he believes to be by himself, he suffers a temporary hallucinogenic state as well as the feeling of crippling anxiety.
