A nervous talker in slower social moments, often dissociates in those moments of quiet anxiety, to the point there's a virtual autopilot running on her mind and mouth, though she's not nearly so aloof once the situation has been assessed and her mind has had time to catch up.

Altair always fears that he has something in his teeth, and he usually tries to check his teeth with his tongue every so often.

Will talk to himself in a mirror as he adjusts his posture. Over analyze every angle of his face to make sure he looks right.

Zoe tends to bounce/shake her leg when nervous/anxious

She says "uhh" and "ummm" a lot

She won't eat things with sprinkles on it. Sprinkles are just not her thing.

These days, takes painstaking efforts to cover her chest almost all the time, even when alone. As a whole, become much more modest, including phasing out certain methods of accomplishing jobs.

Whereas before she wouldn't sleep unless she was handcuffed to some kind of post, now she'll carry a pair and lock herself into place even if she's just sitting idle for a notable period of time.

Given the nature of AI neural implant, unless his AI(Leonie) is patched into an intercom or projecting a hologram, Johan can only hear her in his head. So there are times when it seems to those who are unaware, he's talking with thin air.

Alex would use his super speed to block out the real world, going his speed meant that to him the world was completely silent, and still. It would really calm him.

Katie gets heavy into food prep when she's anxious, ruminating, or depressed. She's also a nervous/depressive eater.

If Venilia doesn't know someone's name, she'll give them a nickname based on their appearance or powers, instead of just asking for their name. An example of this is when she called Shawn Savage "Justin Timberlake" during his NSYNC days.

Crimson Spider Quirks

  • Cracks bad jokes, puns and clever one liners. The closer she is to death, the more she does it.
  • Tends to get very nervous and stutter when women flirt with her. To date, only one woman has actually done so (I'm looking at you, Ezra/Oraculi. :P)

  • Has a habit to appear a lot more laid back then he actually is. In reality he's a very paranoid person who doesn't like oddities
  • The clocktower that houses Thomas is a representation of Thomas' nature.

Juno tends to quickly purse her lips when she finds something amusing around anyone who aren't her close friends, as a method to maintain her stern and somber expression.

Arthur will at times randomly begin talking to himself out loud, be it by himself or mid-conversation with someone else. Often in public settings.

  • Galatea blushes red when ever she feels some sort of attraction to someone, an example being seeing @august_hearst with out his shirt.
  • Galatea is a bad liar, she stutters or mumbles while having an obvious guilty look when she tries to lie.
  • Does her best to be polite even in uncomfortable/awkward situations simply out of habit now
  • Insists on treating people with food first or at-least paying for meals.

  • When nervous, stressed, or uncomfortable Alex will tap his fingers or feet at superspeed at a rhythm similar to the Flash theme song
  • Tends to get uncomfortable when placed in touch situations, or when people don't like him; he usually blushes a very golden color
  • Refuses to let others do tasks when in his home, he loves to be kind and share his hospitality.

  • Save for a few, Achilles is largely unfamiliar with most of the people who enjoy global renown on Earth.
  • As a result, he is often either flippant or oblivious to the sociopolitical status of others.

"Misappropriation of phrases." Not specifically unique to Valentina because I've done it with other characters in the past when there was a language/cultural barrier, but Valentina's been the one lately.

I like to play with small things as a nice touch. Although she speaks nearly perfect English and a Madripoor accent rarely peeks through (except when severely distressed or certain other moments like with Ashley), when adapting certain phrases of second languages (like English) Valentina may mispronounce words and phrases. Something here and there which, no big deal on its own, is like a tiny little sprinkle of nuance that may identify her as an "outsider."

  • "Heard through the great vine" = Heard through the grapevine.
  • Going in all "guns amazing" = Guns ablazing

And so on.

Or otherwise speak in nonstandard ways that may or may not be technically incorrect, but which you probably wouldn't hear from anyone who actually grew up in a standard English-speaking country with it as their main language used. Substitute one word for another here and there, rearrange syntax.

  • For instance the fact that adjectives in English go in a specific order. Someone may wish to ask Valentina about that little orange gem in her bracelet, but she wasn't paying attention because she was focused on the black big dog sitting in the corner.

Those ones, however, I'm careful to try not to overdo, because it could easily go from "a subtle little thing that someone paying attention might register" to undermining the fact that she does, for the most part, have a solid grasp on multiple languages.

@mister_surreal: Thank you. ^_^ Sprinkling small details to enrich is one of the few things I'm usually sure do really well, given my proclivities.

Which is funny in a way because it's also, given my nature, the kinda thing that makes me nervous; I find myself going "...Is the reader picking up on this or does it just look like I don't know what I'm doing here?"

@rosso: You’re welcome :] And I wouldn’t worry about such things, I think that most people have learned to pay closer attention to your posts. And at the end of the day, your work is being enhanced regardless of the reader’s perspective. Not to mention that it’s what makes you the queen of verisimilitude :p

@mister_surreal: Well, that's what I like to think, but I'm also self-aware enough to know that we as people are naturally self-centered so while I might be thinking "it's a no-brainer, I'm well-established enough that at least most would know I don't make mistakes that egregious unless it's on purpose (or I'm in certain altered states of mind)," I know that this may not necessarily be the case. Depending on the reader, or even just what the reader is like at any given moment.
