Christina Eliopolis’s Bucket List

 

That Bucket List Though (2 STARS): Create a bucket list for at least one character from your novel.

Pre-war, Christina Eliopolis was an FA-22 Raptor pilot, one of the most advance pieces of tech ever to tickle the clouds. And when fighting zombies, it amounted to little more than buyer’s remorse.  Eliopolis’s main mission went from winning wars to airborne resupply.  The Air Force with the help of Christina Elipoilis dropped in supplies, so they could keep on keeping on. Success meant dropping in anything from medicine, food, resources, machines, and sometimes even people.  While in the bathroom—portable chempot truth be told— she felt a jolt as if God’s boot just kicked the back of their plane off. The air pressure sucked Eliopolis out the back. She pulled her chute and noticed another chute made it out in time. She tried the radio but got nothing. That was the worst of it for her, just hanging in the air, helpless and useless. Thankfully, the Air Force had given her some training for this type of situation at the Willow Creek Escape and Evade program. Also, Eliopolis was more than use to occupying hostile territory. This was a little excerpt from the Book World War Z setting the scene for what was taking place.

  1. Find out what brought down the plane.
  2. Finding out if “Mets” was a figment of her imagination.
  3. If not an imagination, Christina Eliopolis wants to know where she can find “Mets” so she can thank her, for helping her get to safety.
  4. Find the reminents of her downed plane
  5. Become a skywatcher, to help others, like she was helped that day.

Carson Gordon: Character Resume

When trying to figure out my character I wanted someone who was tough  in the face of danger, and had a skill set that matched this toughness.  It took me awhile to try to figure out my characters skill set as I didn’t want my character to be unhelpful in the fight against the Zombies.  Prior to looking at the Spreadsheet of Archetypes I start creating my characters traits and then looked for the character from the spreadsheet that was closest to these traits. Carson Gordon’s character is close to that of the Veteran in that he his well versed in his experiences, successful, mild tempered when not dealing with zombies.

I decided to create Carson Gordon an all around bad-ass, not really but he has seen things you couldn’t even imagine.  Being a Veteran of the US Army he was deployed multiple times and has seen things that will keep a person up at night.  In regards to the zombies, he laughs (hahahahaha) in the face of these sole suckers.  He is not only proficient in weaponry but can save a life or two in the heat of the moment.   He is a danger seeker which may put himself or others in immediate danger unsuspectingly, this may be a trait that leads to his demise.  After his stint in the military he became a freelance contractor, building multiple structures with his small crew.

After reading Elaina Finklestein website about her character I decided to use Canva as well to create this resume, I couldn’t figure out how to save the picture without them trying to make me pay for it so I screenshot it with Skitch, shout out to Professor Burtis for turning me on to this application.
