What is a tradition your character(s) does during the holidays
« on: November 23, 2017, 06:14:44 PM »
Kind of inspired by both the new frozen short before Coco and Coco itself. Can you describe what your characters do during the holidays that makes them unique for their families.

For Merletta, she mostly puts up a small shrine in her office to wish her father a safe afterlife, as she has done every year after he died.

Liliana usually participates in lantern festivals honoring everyone

And Blair uses the holidays as a way to honor those who past in battle or in defense of the city, usually involving the burning of a small statue for everyone.

Liliana Blossom: The Maven of Song (Team REBL)
Lady Blair Valka of Felwinter "The Lady of the North

Nathan does sweet fuck all apart from receiving/rarely giving gifts.

Camelia goes back home for a few days to celebrate and cozy up with her family.

Anna more or less enjoys being cozy in bed while reading far too many books.

Brock helps out his father with the excessive traffic typical of the season.

Helena organizes some popular soup joints and other such charity things.

Rory is something of a mess around the winter holidays, truth be told -- the only "tradition" he really keeps to is getting depressed due to painful "family" memories while doing his best not to let it show.

Sean typically looks for a party to join, usually the sort where he can set off fireworks while downing copious alcohol and sweets.

Budonoki is a "silent night" sort of person. He'll exchange gifts with friends and coworkers -- usually some homemade fresh fruit preserves or jams -- and then make arrangements to fly out to what's left of his old family farm and meditate among the snowfallen trees.

Alec, generous soul that he is, bakes aggressively leading up to the holidays and donates the baked goods to charity, sometimes making delivery runs to outlying villages in an effort to bring some joy and cheer.

Cordell will usually take a few days' break during the winter holidays to spend time with her father back at the hideout. She also has this crazy idea in her head about air-dropping presents via small parachutes over a few less fortunate villages, but has yet to figure out where she'd steal sufficient goodies and wrapping paper from (tradition in the making?).

Micah finds somewhere safe and isolated to get drunk until he passes out -- he's not really the celebrating type.

Diddling themselves - it's not a tradition that's limited to only the holidays, but it's a tradition they do observe nonetheless
