For me:

Dark Light: Dark Light doesn't eat fast food often but if she does, she has a preference towards BBQ sauce.
Redshift: Ketchup. He cannot handle spicy condiments at all, so things like mustard or hot bbq sauce is out of the equation.
Ray Trace: Mustard. He's colored like it and he likes it.
Bluminescence: He doesn't have a specific taste as he'll eat anything, but ranch is his favorite.
Ultra Violet: BBQ sauce is his favorite. He does not like mustard all that much.
Kontrast: Also BBQ sauce. He likes his with a little bit more kick in it.

What is/hypothetically would be, your Original Character's bed time routine?
i.e. what they do before bed or to prepare themselves for bed.
Blitz: 1AM (bedtime), 10AM (wake up)
Viri: (Same as Blitz)
Agnes: 9PM (bedtime), 10AM (wake up)
Demior: 12AM (bedtime), 6AM (wake up)
Skye: 10PM (bedtime), 7AM (wake up)

This is hypothetical as my characters go through a lot of shenanigans.

I took a look at Zelen's tumblr post and I wanted to answer the question blocks presented in there. I can't answer with all six of my guys, so I'm just going to make Dark Light answer this.

Who makes up your family? How close are you to them?
I'm basically the only child in my family. I haven't really communicated with them since my departure to Mushroom City; when you're a Commander and a police officer, it's like managing a family of your own on top of a job, really. I do like to speak with them sometime, but I'm far too busy thinking about my own jobs, duties, and relationships to consider.

Who is your best friend? Tell us about them!
Undoubtedly Redshift. He's my boyfriend too on top of it. Before that, he was a reliable second-in-command, and I could count on him to lead the group if I'm busy at my job.

What is your favorite childhood memory?
I have extremely supportive parents. I don't know how I could survive without them; they were the ones who let me be whatever I wanted to be when I grew up and they were always aware of my unique condition among my peers.

What is your least favorite childhood memory?
I wasn't born with a typical female body, so life at school was difficult, and it was especially highlighted in my puberty years. I was subject to a lot of teasing and shaming.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Watching shows like Cops, talking nature walks (difficult to do in the urban sprawl that is Mushroom City), socialize with Redshift.

What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do?
Often times, the Protectors find themselves in a whole array of sticky scenarios. I can't think of any that particularly stick out in mind, but one of them was first setting up the base in Mushroom City and establishing connections with the general public. Moving out and in is always extremely difficult, and it is no different with moving into Mushroom City.

Who do you look up to?
Princess Peach. She's an effective ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom. Even if I do firmly believe she can do with far better security than she has.

What do you think had the biggest impact on you growing up?
As I said earlier, I was born with a unique condition that made me appear as a male to my peers, but I'm still classified as female by the stork. The impact that has had on me was lifelong, still currently facing social challenges as a result from it.

Are you a spiritual person? If yes, what do you practice?
I don't believe in that bunch of bunk.

Where were you born? Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?
I was born and grew up in Moonview City, in Mushroom Kingdom. Now I live in Mushroom City.

What is your favorite type of media (TV, movie, books, etc)? Name some specific favorites (which shows, movies, books, etc do you like)!
Television. I like Cops and Live PD. Those shows I watched growing up, and it helped me obtain an interest in law enforcement.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? (on vacation or permanently!)
On vacation? I'd like to visit the Boggly Woods again. Lovely place.

You’re given an unlimited budget to build anything you want! What do you build and where do you build it?
I'd just use the funds to build a better and more expansive Protector Base, really.

What are your favorite music genres?
Electronica, symphonic metal, though I'd listen to most music. Just as long as it's not that terrible amalgamation of """music""" you call rap.

Do you play any instruments? Which ones? How long have you been playing?
Do you count jamming on the piano when you were a child "playing instruments"? If no, then nope, I don't play them.

Describe your perfect day.
I love going out on dates with Redshift, because he seems to know what places I like and what places I don't, so no matter where he picks, I always have a really good time with him.

What makes you laugh?
Oh jeez, I'm not really the type of person who has a good sense of humor, but seeing some of the weird stuff in my job sometimes puts a little light edge on what is otherwise a stressful job? One of us had to tase a pig once, and we had to make THAT joke about it. The pig's fine too, don't worry about her.

And admittedly, Ray Trace DOES do funny quips once in a while....

What’s the best way to cheer you up?
Knowing I have a supportive group of Protectors who would obey me and are pretty loyal, don't have much issues with them, like, going to perform mutiny against me.

What makes you sad?
Sometimes, seeing people less privileged than me live on the streets. As a cop, I occasionally have to deal with them and inside, makes me pretty sad I can't really help them.

Describe your biggest pet peeve.
Litterbugs. All of them. They can go live in a landfill for all I care. Same with people who willingly pollute our living space around us. I'd say we should just jail them and let them live in their own filth and squalor.

Describe your ideal partner.
He's called Redshift.

What’s the easiest way to flirt with you?
I'm normally not the flirtatious type and I'll reject all flirts if I don't know you. It took a while for me and Redshift to take this relations to the level it is now...

Have you ever had a crush on someone? Do you have a crush now?
No. In fact, I think our relationship started because Redshift developed a crush on me.

What would you consider your main love language?
I'm asexual and demiromantic (I considered myself aromantic before I met Redshift). I don't have the slightest clue. A lot of this love stuff I learned from him.

Freebie! Come up with your own question for the character to answer!
People who anger me the most are the unsympathetic people. You know, that includes litterers, bigots, and criminals of all sorts. I despise selfish people and you should too.

most awesome importnat lore question: who do/would your ocs main in mario kart (https://www.mariowiki.com/Mario_Kart_(series)#Table_of_playable_characters)

lily: you would assume daisy, which would be fair, but she would rather actually play as petey (lets pretend hes not exclusively in mkdd...) because hes funny. sometimes rosalina
cilia: Funky Kong . or whoever she deems the most fashionable in a given mario kart title. sometimes plays pgp or something because she finds others reactions to this really funny

most awesome importnat lore question: who do/would your ocs main in mario kart (https://www.mariowiki.com/Mario_Kart_(series)#Table_of_playable_characters)
This is an awkward question: why not play as themselves?



What are your OC’s favorite movies?
I'm not really a huge movie watcher in general so I can't really answer this question.

How good is your ocs' memory?
Dark Light: She has very good memory. If you wrong her in a way, she WILL remember it and she WILL hold it against you.
Redshift: Also has a very good memory, being the reliable second-in-command he is. He prefers to write things down to remember it properly.
Ray Trace: Doesn't have a good short-term memory of course but he does have a good long-term one.
Bluminescence: A bit clumsy on the short term but better than Ray Trace's.
Ultra Violet: He can remember things I guess. Probably as good as Redshift and Dark Light.
Kontrast: He has the worst memory of the group, being forgetful is one of the premier negative traits he has. He can even forget what he's doing in the middle of a task.

Will answer the OC block later, but if you had to give your OCs theme songs, what would they be?

Dark Light - Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band - The Jazz Police (self-explanatory, Dark Light's a police officer, and I like jazz)
Redshift - Breed 77 - Quiero vivir (Big fan of Breed 77's style of mixing flamenco and metal. Lyrics don't totally suit him but there was a lot of choices to choose from)
Ray Trace - Хэй, Диджей! - Рви Меха (Dunno the lyrics, but the music's high energy and zany style, and in Russian, fits him so well)
Bluminescence - Charles Trenet - Douce France (Classic French song, and Charles Trenet makes very light-hearted, peaceful music, which I think suits him)
Ultra Violet - The Headstones - Cemetery (I mean, Hugh Dillon is the exact voice I use for Ultra Violet, so I immediately think Ultra Violet singing these songs -that's the main reason I made him a musician btw-...it absolutely has to be a Headstones song to fit him. The style also suits him too. Another strong candidate is Change My Ways.
Kontrast - Nachtmahr - Tanzdiktator (I think aggrotech fits Kontrast a lot and not to mention that it's German)

Oh to throw this in, this is the song that plays in my head when the Protectors are dawdling around the Protector base. It's soo fitting, the Protectors are totally Vibin', that's for sure!

Knowing that Ray Trace has a low IQ, what would he do in a battlefield?

The style also suits him too. Another strong candidate is Change My Ways.
Kontrast - Nachtmahr - Tanzdiktator (I think aggrotech fits Kontrast a lot and not to mention that it's German)

Oh to throw this in, this is the song that plays in my head when the Protectors are dawdling around the Protector base. It's soo fitting, the Protectors are totally Vibin', that's for sure!

Hmm, the only one I can think of is for Green Flash, Gomen Ni Liko Ja Irarenai. I think the flow and melody of the song suits her, and if you look at the translated lyrics, it sorta fits.
