    Influences/Inspiration for the character

    Post  laylial on Sat May 05, 2012 2:04 pm

    Books
    Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkagaard-Laylial's inital philosophy in the game (especially "the warrior of faith" concept).
    Geneaology of Morals by Friedrich Nietzsche-No morals or virtues, just choices and consequences

    Series
    Le Chevalier D'Eon-Lia De Beaumont is the biggest inspiration for Laylial
    Borgias-a good show about the politics and intrigue of the early Renaissance catholic church

    Movies
    Shinobi no Mono (film series)-it's about scapegoating and moral hypocrisy and ninjas. It's about ninjas.
    Never Let Me Go (srsly)-It deals with themes similar Engel including accepting one's fate.
    Legend of the Guardians-an animated children's movie by the director of 300.

    Damn. I gotta watch the Borgias. Thanks for the reminder.

    Oh, I suppose I can add to this thread:


    Aurelia is Misato from Evangelion.

    Atiniel's insanity is patterned off Delirium from Sandman.

    Helel Emim is Oscar the Grouch.

    Loth is my reaction to reading Hume.


    Some of those are serious.

    You're not fooling anybody. Aurelia is your ME2 femship and Loth is a Randroid.

    Ehhh... Ok, so I don't have much of an inspiration for Cathetel, but if I drew influences from anywhere I guess that it would be from Yomiko Readman of Read Or Die, and yes, a little of Katniss from Hunger Games. Maybe also Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket... y'know, for the awkward adorableness.

    "The Paper?" I didn't see that at all. That's fantastic.

    Yes "The Paper"! Oblivious, mixed up priorities, and doesn't really want to fight, but will. Also, she's cute as hell! <3

    I'm so excited you know who she is Very Happy

    Ulquiorra from Bleach


    Movies/Books: Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter

    I honestly didn't have any basis or him other than that. That may be why I'm inconsistent with his attitudes, but I think I've done it enough to qualify him to be diagnosed as a schizophrenic.
