01. What would your character die for?
02. What would they refuse to do under any circumstances?
03. What do they dream about?
04. What single object would they be most hard pressed to part with? Why?
05. What is their fondest memory?
06. What is their worst memory?
07. What or who was were their most significant influence?
08. What would be their biggest nightmare?
09. What makes them laugh?

11. Is your character a virgin? If not, who was their first?
12. Ask whatever question you want!

I've given my characters a healthy dose of Veritaserum and now they have to tell the truth. None of them are likely to be terribly happy about this, at all. They all guard their secrets closely. What does this mean for you? Ask my characters questions about anything and everything and they will truthfully answer it. So, go ahead and ask what you want. They can't beat around the bush with half-truths.

This applies to any and all of my characters:

Any others you can think of that are no longer active, as well... Replies will be slow.

This strikes me as a terribly dangerous undertaking, particularly when I was in the middle of working on Nexus 100 prompts. Here, then, is The Shadow as I play him. I apologize in advance for any conflicts with other people's perceptions of the character, but with the limited insight Gibson gave to his motivations and personal psychology, there seems some room for interpretation.

There's a certain theme in the department of yellow tape, and not enough coffee, but that's my life all over.

This batch from Crumrin:

Guns are a tool, and a useful one. I try to make myself familiar with a number of weapons. I've trained in several forms of hand to hand fighting, I can make use of a knife, and I'm good with a rapier. Nothing seems to quite beat a gun for versatility though. I carry at least two M1911 automatic pistols, which take .45 rounds, although I've been thinking of upgrading. The aim isn't too bad for a handgun, and they're heavy enough to use as a club in close combat. If I'm expecting a lot of heavy gunfire I carry four, to save reloading time. I'm comfortable with a wide array of guns, but smaller caliber weapons aren't reliable if you need to shoot open a lock or use it as a bludgeoning instrument, and a longer barreled gun would be more accurate but too bulky to carry.

Blue is my favorite color, don't let the scarf fool you. I keep a blue light in the Sanctum. It's very calming, but blue light also has a recorded psychological effect of keeping you alert when you're tired.
That my eyes are blue is coincidence.

Being tall is a liability. It's good for intimidation, but bad for disguise. I would be glad to be a little shorter.

My laugh is a psychological intimidation tool, a form of meditative focus and release, and a useful trademark that leaves no incriminating evidence to be traced back to me. I know it's theatrical, along with the costume, but that seems to work well on the criminal mind. I also often combine the laugh with voice projection in order to misdirect people, because it's to my advantage when they waste bullets shooting an empty corner.

The mind is the seat of all human power. It can, with training and focus, overcome many of the limitations of the body. There are no limits to its growth, no restrictions if you do not choose to accept them. I may be biased because I am of well above average intelligence, but no level of knowledge is a set matter, and people of any intelligence are capable of continuing to learn and grow and push themselves throughout their lives. Of all tools in detecting and fighting crime, my mind is the most important among them.

Edit: Another five from Reldon.
Silver is the metal for my rings, more or less the color of my guns, a colder darker night-associated sort of metal. I'm not quite sure why you picked this one. I do like silver over gold.

Lead(the element) is dull, heavy, dark, dangerous in large quantities. The first two don't apply to me, but the latter two might. It's what bullets are generally made from, of course, so it's something I deal with in high quantities, at a rapid pace.

What about my hat? It's a little more distinctive than the usual fedora, but I have to warn you both types of haberdashery will go out of style. It's more distinctive in my time, because many men go bare-headed now. And when they don't, what they do wear on their heads is a little cringe-inspiring, but I may be getting old-fashioned.

I love flight. You've probably noticed. The autogiro's been updated from whatever you know but I have one still, and a small airplane that's considered out of date. You're going to be very impressed with the innovations in aviation to come, they just keep building them bigger and faster, especially faster. Airplanes will eventually become so common they lose their glamour for most people, which is a shame, but there's still a lot to be said for the joy of flying, of being in control alone up in the sky.
I don't fly as much as I used to, because it's usually something done out of necessity on the job, but when I was retired for a few years I did a lot of it just for fun. That just may have been the only part of retirement I enjoyed.

I'm no stranger to escape, from both sides. I don't like it when criminals escape me, but it happens. The tables are always turning and I've made plenty of escapes of my own. I don't mean to sound masochistic but there is something thrilling about the challenge of it, the necessity of focusing on a puzzle when finding a way out of it is the key to your own survival. I'll admit I like the adrenaline. There are times I can't get out without injury, and then I pay for it later, but still. I'm not pleased when people escape me, but it's inevitable and I'm used to it, and as long as I catch them in the end it's all part of another day's work.

Strange meme from Green:

Red scarves. I have a few, red looks close enough to black in the darkness, but shows up dramatically in the light. I'll admit there's a theatrical aspect to what I wear, because it's important to make a lasting impression in the criminal mind. Red is also a color for luck across much of Asia, where I studied extensively. I used to use a cloak with a red lining and just turn the collar up, rather than a scarf.

Crime is something I hope I'm associated with defeating, not causing, although I realize some of my methods are legally questionable. There are different kinds of crime, and some acts are morally criminal even if no one has thought to make laws against them. I try to address those, and other crimes the legal forces can't unearth or simply won't deal with, for whatever reason.

Law is useful, and necessary, but limited. I do work with the law whenever possible, and I'm not opposed to turning things over to the police when they have the means and inclination to deal with something properly. Sometimes they just need assistance gathering the right clues to put together. I don't have any agents in law enforcement, but I try to keep my eye on the detectives who seem sharper than average, and give them what they need to do their work. Cardona comes to mind, but there have been others.

Darkness is extremely useful, although having excellent night vision is a stroke of luck rather than skill. I've heard some fascinating rumours about my ability to keep hidden in darkness, but it's mostly a matter of dark clothing and moving carefully. Darkness has many psychological and mythological implications, and that's useful in my line of work as well.

Fighting is an outlet as well as a necessary skill. I try to be a little more careful now, because I seem to take longer to heal, but I still enjoy the battle.

I believe people are supposed to ask me for five things I associate with them, but I may be erratic in response, I'm working on a complex case with Reldon right now.
