30 Day Character Development: Day 30
Is the character religious? What are their views, and why or why not?
How would they like to die?
Choose a person, historical or fictional, and write about a meeting between them and your character.
• No, he is an atheist. He goes by the old argument that there can be no God after such atrocities that he has seen — seeing people pray for Him before being tortured and returned to the state of hopeless hope.
• Cleanly, quietly and respectfully, preferably keeping his body intact. Also, ideally, remembered, so that people can both learn from his mistakes but also build on his successes.
• Not in detail! But I can do a summary:
Cadaver meets Desmond.
Mild fanboy moment over Desmond.
Cadaver learns Desmond is a bit of an ass.
Both think of excellent excuses each to leave, and do so.
A letter pinned to Cadaver’s tent door
Dear “The Kings”,
Please stop leaving pieces of maize and boxes of Pre-War food in front of my tent. I came back this morning to find an entire crop almost growing in front of my door.
Love from Dr Cadaver Strayer.
P.S. Give them to Arcade instead.
30 Day Character Development: Day 29
Would they be more likely to act for the good of one or the good of many?
Are they manipulative?
Choose a holiday and come up with a potential scenario involving your character and that holiday.
• The good of many, after living 200 years of brutal, utilitarian necessity. As much as he would love to be more compassionate, he realises it’s often just a luxury, but sometimes it gets the better of him and a lot is sometimes wasted, in vain, on a single person.
• Not at all. He’s more likely to -be- manipulated.
• Christmas. A really, really sappy nostalgic Christmas in the Mormon Fort. Cadaver makes several speeches and everyone gets tipsy and falls asleep on each other. Cadaver also loses a shoe when he wakes up and finds it in the Atomic Wrangler.

30 Day Character Development: Day 28
Do they value faith over reason or vice versa?
Do they believe in an afterlife?
Do they have any habits that reflect their beliefs? (Ex. regular prayer, vegetarianism, etc.)
Do they respect the beliefs of others?
•Reason. He, bitterly, has no room for faith. As a result he refuses to believe in an afterlife.
•He has to restrain himself severely when it comes to speaking to a heavily religious person — he sees them as ignorant idiots.
•Mostly, unless that actually refuse to see beyond their own faith.
