Welcome to “Inside the Character Studio” please give a warm welcome to our host; Oliver Clozeoff!
Ladies and gentlemen please, would yah bring yer attention to me. Welcome to the show, please come inside! Today we will continue our in-depth look into the life and mind of Zander Bearach, on: “Inside the Characters Studio”. I am your host Oliver Clozeoff, and let the fun begin!
So, Zander, yesterday was a tad…
I was going to say heavy but, aye, bleak works as well. So, we are gonna lighten the mood a little and keep the show simple. Sound good?
Sure. What did you have in mind?
Well, I know you like music.
I do, as long as it isn’t being sung by an obnoxious no talent bard.
If you had your own personal theme music, what do ya suppose it might be?
Like just walking down the street or what?
Let’s start with travel music and expand from there.
Okay, well, what kind of music are we talking about? Can I use modern or must I stick with music found in Tamriel?
No lad any music at all.
Hmmm, I guess for walking around I might use something like an acoustical version of “Bonny Portmore” but it would have to be traditional acoustics, bagpipes and such none of this synthesized stuff.
Good song lad. Okay, what about music for when you get attacked by something?
Well, I guess that depends on what is attacking.
Okay, fair enough, how about a regular bandit attack?
Oh…that’s super simple. “Bodies” by Drowning Pool
Ah, aye, another good song.
And say you were attacked by a Giant?
That is easy too. “Yakety Sax” by James Q. “Spider” Rich and Homer “Boots” Randolph III. Because that isn’t a fight, that is me running away as fast as possible.
*laughs* Than that is rather fitting. Okay, what about entrance music?
What do you mean like how pro wrestlers have?
Sure let’s go with that.
I would have to say “Bleed it out” by Linkin Park.
What song makes you happy when you are sad?
“Billionaire” by Travie McCoy, “99 Red Balloons” by Goldfinger, and “All the Small Things” by Blink 182, “19-2000 Soulchild Remix“ by The Gorillaz, and well anything by the Gorillaz actually.
All fine choices. What about when you are feeling contemplative?
Like if I just want to stare off into the void and just ponder life?
Hmmm. I like “Crash Into Me” by The Dave Mathews Band, “Wake Me Up Inside” By Evanescence, “It’s My Life” By Bon Jovi, “Photograph” By Nickleback and other such things.
Also a pretty good list. I know this is a sensitive but how about romance?
It’s Okay… Songs like “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane usually tugs on me a lot more than I would like, then there is “Lips of an Angel” by Hinder…and a number of depressing songs that remind me of such things.
Aye. Well, it seems you have a pretty eclectic taste in music.
I guess I do.
Well, we still have some time for a question or two from the audience. What do ya say, lad, ready?
Sure why not.
Okay, how about you. The pretty lass with the raven hair wearing the “Carry your own damn burdens” T-shirt? Do ya have a question for Zander?
Yes. I was just wondering. Do you see yourself as a forgiving person?
That seems like a decent question. What say ya Zander, are ya a forgiving person?
I suppose it would depend on the situation. There are certain things… I can never forgive not entirely at least.
Let’s get one more question. Ummm ….Okay, you, in the front row. *points*
Yes. I would like to know why Zander chose to flee to Skyrim as opposed to any of the other beautiful regions of Tamriel. Does it perhaps have anything to do with the current civil war??
Excellent question. Zander?
It actually had nothing to do with the Civil War and everything to do with the stories my uncle would tell me about his time in Skyrim. The way he described it, and how strongly he felt about it, I just figured I might be able to start a new life there. Who knew that Skyrim itself would be trying to kill me.
Well, I hope that answered yer questions. That seems to be all the time we have for today. I hope ya will join us again tomorrow when we carry on with our 28 Days of Character Development, where we will have another thought-provokingly good time with Zander, right here on “Inside the Characters Studio”. I am yer host Oliver Clozeoff saying, “Be good, if ya can’t be good, be naughty, but be good at it.” Good night everybody!
