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.
Here is Carson Gordon’s Resume below:
