It's the first of the month, and that means it's time for a new Character Spotlight! :party: :woot: Each month, HNZ site staff choose a character that we feel portrays some cool aspect that's worth noting to the rest of the site. It can be a fun or informative style for a bio, a particularly well developed development thread, a character that's been particularly active, and sometimes all of the above!

This month, we've chosen to spotlight Analei Louw! She's RPed by Donna :donna: , and we encourage you to take a look at her biography and her development. And definitely don't forget to check out her profile. Congratulations Donnakins!!

Below is a questionnaire that we ask all spotlighted roleplayers to fill out where they share their thoughts on being spotlighted, and as a new feature, you'll notice the character spotlight chat in shouty where we can all keep chatting with Donna throughout the month about her character, character development, and what she's looking forward to most on HNZ!


What was your initial thought when you were contacted about being spotlighted?

Even though I knew it was coming, I forgot it was coming! :lol: So very excited, and a wonderful birthday present :r

What was the inspiration for your character?

I can't quite remember where the idea sparked, but I remember knowing that I wanted an introvert who had problems dealing with their emotions. Someone who was almost scared to use magic in case it got out of control. She definitely has better control over it now, and actually loves using magic - it's amazing how characters change!

What is your favourite RP that your character has taken part in?

Every RP that I've had with Analei has been amazing and helped develop her so much. I obviously love all the ones with Arvel, and the drama with Diana and Edmund! Of Mandrakes and Archenemies was one of my favorites to be a part of though!

What is your favourite aspect of your character?

Her unwavering loyalty! But I love discovering deeper things about her personality, and how conflicting some of her emotions and traits can be. She literally still cannot understand why Simon Vanity doesn't love her.

Your least favourite aspect?

Her temper! And the fact that she cannot understand why Simon Vanity doesn't love her :lol:

She extends her loyalty and friendship to all, but if they show an inch of no loyalty back, she freaks out. She expects to get 110% back of what she gives.

If you could meet your character in real life would you want to? Why or why not?

Apart from a huge age gap, I don't see why not. Teenagers scare me :lol: But she does have a good heart and if I were on her good side then we could get along!

What do you feel your strength in developing characters is?

I think I've learnt to not pre-plan a lot of things for characters. I love plotting, but I also like to see where the character goes/takes it. Analei is far more chattier than I thought she'd be! I'm also huge on developments, I think it definitely helps make it easier for myself while I'm trying to RP.

Your weakness?

Not joining or doing lots of open RPs! Or just dropping RPs or characters. I can be very one-character focused and that often means my other ones fall to the side. They lose a lot of their life that way! Haha.

What would you recommend to those looking to further develop their characters?

Honestly, classes! You don't have to do every single one, but I learned A LOT about my characters when I started doing classes. But also, using the resources around! Developments, Biographies, and Pinterest are very helpful to me.

What are you most looking forward to on HNZ in the next several months?

HNZ's birthday!!! Sorting fun and plots!

What is your favourite part of HNZ?

Is it cliche to say the community? Obviously I love the creativity that happens on HNZ, and making characters, but if it weren't for the people, I don't know how long I would have stuck around. Everyone here is so supportive and understanding, and a whole lot of fun!

Congrats again, Donna!

The March Character Spotlight is up, and it's Hufflepuff's own Analei Louw this month! Congratulations Donna! If you have any questions for her about her character, feel free to post them here and they'll automagically appear in the topic as well (if I did it right :p )! And join us in congratulating Donna

Here's a first follow up question for you, Donna: is this some sort of Hufflepuff conspiracy?

I've got a question~ You've described Analei as both logical and hot-tempered. How often do those two traits conflict when she's making decisions, and do you ever see her leaning further into one trait over the other?

Yeah, it can be tricky having traits that conflict with each other! It definitely depends on the situation. If it were life and death, she can focus and definitely think logically, but if it's a situation that a person caused, or is causing her grief, she doesn't think as straight. Situation wise, she's definitely more logical, people-wise, it's her temper and emotions.

Yesss, Analei is amazing, one of my favourite characters!!! I love her so much :wub: congratulations Donna!!

Also I agree, plotting is soo much fun but sometimes just letting your characters do their thing and seeing what happens can be exciting and surprising, hehe

Question! Can you think of a moment where you were RPing Analei and her personality really clicked in your head for the first time?

Hmmm, I definitely think when I started doing classes with her I understood her so much more, but also one of her first RPs - her first Halloween. It was where she made her first friend, so I got to play with a different side of her that wasn't just moody and grumpy girl.
