Inside the Characters Studio (Day 3)



Welcome to “Inside the Character Studio” please give a warm welcome to our host; Mr. Jim Brisk!


Thank you… thank you. Today we continue to delve into the life of Zander Bearach. Yesterday (Earlier today actually) we were taken on a voyage through Zanders’ childhood, and left with a cliff hanger due to a, let’s just say, minor loophole that some peon, who is now unemployed, over looked.

Thanks unemployed peon!

Thanks indeed…Yesterday, you told us a heart breaking story of your childhood, some would say it was depressing.

I’m sorry my childhood wasn’t all sunshine and lollipops.

That’s okay, it’s not your fault.

I know…it was yours.

Now, Zander you were able to get away with not telling us everything yesterday…

I was…

Don’t get too cocky because I have been assured that there is absolutely no way you can weasel your way out of today’s topic.

Joy…let’s get this over with.

No, but you are close.


Today folks we are going to jump right into Zanders’ love life!

My whosit whatsit now?

Your love life, to be more specific , we want to know your thoughts on marriage and children.

Oh lord, ain’t no body got time for that!

You had better make time, because inquiring minds want to know, what do you think of Marriage?

I think it’s fine.

You think its fine… Come now Zander certainly you can elaborate on that.

Okay…it’s swell? I don’t know what you want from me here. My views on Straight versus Gay marriage? What?

N-no…nothing like that…Come on, you must have some opinion on marriage.

An opinion?

Yes, how do you feel about marriage.

How do I feel about marriage….

Yes, how do you feel.

I feel like kicking you in the junk.

About marriage, how do you feel about marriage? What are your thoughts, and feelings on marriage?!?

Okay, Sheesh. Try not to blow a gasket.

Just…answer the questions already wouldja…

Okay, okay, calm down.

How do I feel about marriage. Well, I guess it is can be a wonderful expression of emotions for two people who love one another. I think it all depends on the couple being married whether it is good or not. If the couple truly cares for one another and love each other than being married would be great I think. On the other hand if they are not truly in love, than being married would probably seem like spending the rest of your life in jail. When I was younger I thought about getting married but … things….didn’t work out.

That is a good way of looking at things, but what did you mean by things didn’t work out?

Huh? Oh, nothing. What was your other question? Children right?

Yes, but don’t try to skirt the…

I think having children would be a blessing if you wanted them and were ready for that kind of commitment. But then again who is ever really ready for children? I imagine having a child and raising it would probably be the scariest thing ever, but probably the most rewarding too.

I… was not expecting that kind of an answer. I don’t know what to say.

Yeah, I have layers.

You certainly do, but you are trying to evade the question again.

Well, we have just enough time to take one or two questions from the audience, don’t we?

Hey! You can’t segue into the audience Q&A.

I just did.

But that is my job!

Quit yer bitchin. You ….no not you sit down. *points*You in the “Talos > Thalmor” shirt.


Yes you, do you have a question for me?

I do. What is your favorite color, and why?

W-What kind of question is that???

Shut up! That is a very thought provoking question. Why can’t you ask nice questions like this?

Because…I…I got nothing…

That’s what I thought. To answer the first part of your question, my favorite color is green. As to why it is my favorite color I would have to say I am not completely sure really. Maybe I like it because it reminds me of trees during the summers in Cyrodiil. Or maybe it is because green is a color that most people over look or don’t really like. I hope that answered your question. And I think that is all the time we have today…

No it’s not!


We have time for one more question, so lets get back to my previous…

Fine, one more question. How about from you sir.

Hey wait a minute…


Don’t what me, I was going to ask you a question.

Too late.

What do you mean too late?

Well, I already acknowledged that guy.


Well, it would be rude to ignore him and his question. Now wouldn’t it? Yes it would, so we are going to take that mans question.


So, you sir. *points* The fellow with the “Built Orc Tough” shirt.


Yeah, you. What was your question for me?

Yes, I was just wondering. How do you handle the fact that you know Pyrelle wrote you into existence?


YES! Now that is a question! How do you handle that Zander?

Shut up you…

To answer your question, I drink…. a lot.

No you don’t! stop lying.

Fine. All kidding aside we actually have a good relationship. He is like my best friend. Sure we kid around a lot and say hurtful things to each other but at the end of the day I know he has my back. The fact that he has to write himself an imaginary friend and then torture said friend should speak volumes about his psychological stability. Not to mention his god complex. But put all that aside and you have a pretty decent guy.

Awe, that was swee…Hey I didn’t write that last part for you!…I mean….damn it!

*snickers* Can I go now?

Why you son of a…

Is that a yes? I am taking that as a yes.

Just… be back here tomorrow!



I said see you tomorrow!

Okay folks that is all the time we have for today’s show. Be sure to tune in tomorrow when we continue our 28 Days of Character Development, and have another enlightening look at our friend, Zander, right here on Inside the Characters Studio! I am you host Jim Brisk saying, “Keep your friends close and don’t pick their nose.”. Good night every body!

Woo! I managed to get one in on time. It helped that I didn’t give a rats ass about the Super Bowl and had minimal distractions. I hope everyone enjoys Day 3 of the challenge. I would also like to say I am not skipping over anyone’s questions that have been asked. I will continue to use them, so please remember to send in your questions either by using the form below or posting your question in the comments section. I look forward to all the questions but I still need more. Thank you. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with the challenge now and won’t fall behind.

  1. I laughed SO HARD at the descriptions of the tee shirts. This was a very, very funny post. I also really liked the commentary about how Pyrelle writes him into existence. And when he asked why Jim Brisk couldn’t ask “nice” questions.

    Overall, I was so glad to read something lighter after yesterday/earlier today’s PAINFUL AND TRAUAMATIC childhood post.

    I really like that you are taking the conversational format. I feel like I can really hear Zander’s voice.

    1. I am glad you are enjoying it. I am equally glad you and everyone else is getting to know Zander a lot better. I felt a conversational Q&A type approach would fit me better and give me the room I needed to not only inform but also entertain as well as pull on emotional strings if it was needed. Glad you approve.

  2. “Built Orc Tough.” hahaha. I like it. Very creative way of getting to that question too.

    Also, Zander’s an onion! I like that we get to see Zander be serious in between the funny. It’s nice seeing little glimpses at what makes him tick.

    1. Thank you. I am really enjoying doing this. And whether or not he will admit it, so is Zander. I am glad you got the onion reference. I will have to design a tee shirt for Grawnk with built orc tough on the front and bard life on the back.

      1. …cry? That’s the safe answer, so I’ll go with that. Does he sprout little white hairs if you leave him in the sun too long?
