Who/What/Why Inspired your Current Character in DayZRP?

Recommended Posts

We all make Characters to play, whether they be who you wish you were, who you really are, or who you think would be fun to play we all draw inspiration from different sources to make the characters we currently RP as. 

I'd like to know, what or who or why helped to inspired the Character you play the most, or your current Character?

Did you watch The Walking Dead and thought, "Damn I wanna be like Neegan."? 
Did you play The Last of Us and think, "Whoa, Joel is so cool ... Gotta have a character like him."?
Did you friends say, "Please we need a Hero/Bad Guy can you play one for us?" 
Or did you simply say, "What if I played myself or someone I know...?" 

Maybe the better way to ask the question is why? Why are you playing the character you're playing now, and what led you to the idea to play them?

A real life friend inspired me to make my first mute character. She is mute and helped me create Nora, a character I played for 13 months. After the LW I didn't play for a month or two, I just lost interest. I then thought by myself when I had the best time on DayZRP and that was on my mute character since it is a whole different RP style. So I started working on a new mute character as I didn't want to bring the old one back to the current lore.

I then mixed my pre lorewipe mute character with my pre lorewipe deaf character (made that after someone told me I can't pull off a deaf character, was alot of fun) and now I got Ella, a hyperactive mute character that is alot of fun to play.

Had to make a new character. Last one got perma'd. This character would join Res Publica so he had to have gone to a university or studied under a certain professor. I'd like my characters to be unique just like everyone else. So instead of choosing a student or a teacher I made my character a janitor at a university. And as a attempt to really hit home on the janitor part, I made him a stereotypical mexican that likes to have siesta's.

My character was designed to be weak and submissive from the start, slowly becoming stronger and more compassionate as time goes on. So far I have left a lot of his actions and motives down to in game development, so far I think it has worked as intended, more or less. I was inspired mainly by the things I feared I would become, but learnt to get used to.

I had just finished watching through Better Call Saul and thought, 'hey, what if I did Saul Goodman but he turns into a badass later on.'

Daddy

I made Eamon because I wanted to play a different kind of character, a less intelligent style of char with strong principles, the opposite of characters I had previously played, like Max or Kasimir. Wasn't sure where I wanted to take him but I made some great friends IC and OOC as a result of playing him, which made him a successful character in my eyes.

My first character, John Kellman, was essentially me. I remember reading somewhere that you should just play yourself starting out, get your feet wet and stuff. As time went on, however, he slowly evolved into a character of his own.

After a few months, John's story came to a tragic end and I decided to try something different, a character drastically different from John. Which is where Ian came from.

I've mentioned this to others, but Ian Keith is what you get when you mix Littlefinger, Walter White, Gustavo Fring, Dexter, and Eugene from The Walking Dead: An unapologetic, matter-of-fact, drug-dealing, manipulative sociopath who is only out for himself.

And dear god has he been a blast to play.

Oh boy. I don't really know except for one, Dr. Hope Pisces.

When I found out my dad had cancer, that was the final straw for me. I wanted to help but I was restricted - so I made her an oncologist however due to being so far into the lore I made her have knowledge that could help more people. It was my way of coping. I couldn't help him so I virtually helped others. Eventually I made Hope turn from being pushed around to fuck this. Just like how I became. She was one of the reasons I became so obsessed with the United Nations. I made her from London and did a stereotypical stuck up my own ass accent - people were easy to judge saying I was stuck up my own ass but eventually found out I can be laid back. It was fun seeing the variety of personalities you became friends with ICly cause of it.

Oh... What inspired Casey Hall. Well, first we obviously have the character very close to it pre lore wipe, Casey Halls. 

I think originally, it was me gaining a massive interest into business around the time and starting to research a lot into schizophrenia after reading the book Schizo a couple of years prior. From that, I wanted to try and correctly play a schizophrenic character. 

Originally, the name was inspired from BostonDonut or BostonRP's old character with the name Casey. Something just stuck with the name and I really wanted my character to be using that name. Casey's last name had no correlation besides me liking the last name and thinks it looks nice. 

My current character which is an alternative version of Casey Halls (Now being Casey Hall (Or Mr. White)) was inspired by a few things. One, my love for Law currently and my plan to go into law school after Criminology. Two, a potential story that Western was creating and then everyone dropped out. Three, just wanting to create a calm individual who is fucked internally but seems so chill on the outside.

So, that's the story how I made Casey Hall

Brady Barns was made based off @Refactures crazy RP, and @Greenies  funny loving stupid self. I wanted a character that would be feared among everyone, someone that you knew the name of to not fuck with, but also to bring comedic relief to every situation whether it be good or bad. Although this was more based on pre lore wipe, I tried remaking him into a new character for this lore wipe. Sadly my lack of a computer to play on restricts me from playing as of now, but in a few weeks he will be back(And the hunt for Lo begins again @Brayces)

I would say Lorenzo was based off of Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid...well, his voice more or less. His personality is a mix of mine and some other characters from other games, such as Final Fantasy and Resident Evil. Weird eh? ha

My last character Grieves was inspired by a combination of Dr. Robert Neville from I am Legend and Wernher Von Braun. Vasily, my current character was inspired by some of the interesting stories I found when I was doing some research on the real Solntsevskaya Bratva back when we first made this group.

I've noticed my last 2 or 3 characters are carbon copies/.0s of a person I aspire to be one day: A super jacked DILF with an ego as big my biceps :D

I just wanted to make a CDF character

The two characters I have right now were inspired by a few different things.

Tivian was inspire by myself and my love for brutally honest people who are not afraid to speak their mind, as well as my personal want to become a EMT.   Granted I am no where near as hot headed as Tiv is. xD

My other character "Dolly" is one that I have not played yet because I have been waiting for the right time to use him.  He was more or less inspired by my cringy love for creepypastas and my old GTA Online character from back when i played on my PS3.

Weeeell, I've got a perverted sense of humour, so Alex is that only extremely heightened. And the bitchiness isn't necessarily inspired by anyone. It's mostly just a manifestation of my frustrations from working in customer service and dealing with people all day. Feels cathartic to be a bitch when I'm forced to be pleasant at work all day, hahaha.

First character was a combination of the philosophy from The picture of Dorian Grey meets Buffalo Bill from Silence of the lambs - cept for guys. Make someone pretty forever.

Second and current - a hunter who has to be quiet in order to catch prey is anything but that inside his head.

Marlon was inspired by the main guy from Purge 2 . Mainly from that one , in a sense where he has lost everything , so he doesn't really give a shit.

Lavia was inspired by Mother-Russia from Kick ass 2 , but a male version. His background was completely made up though. 

Winston was inspired by Glen from the walking dead , before he met Maggie. He then later turned into crazy Morgan.

Raymond is inspired by Baby from Baby driver. I just love music and great soundtracks being introduced into scenes.

Winter was inspired by Wade Wilson from Deadpool.

Ethan Quinn was a character that I played last patch briefly, insipred by my brother and some of my friends IRL (I know I can't believe I actually have those).

Arno Orlov was made specifically for the CDF. Nothing really sparked him, just a want to change groups and hang out with the CDF lads.

Ignac Stana... All I gotta say is @Major

Well, my current character is Jack Castle. My dad being an ex 11A in the Iranian Military and me wanting to join the military,  pretty much inspired me to do it. I got a lot of information off of ex RDIC members including my dad and with that, I kind of made a character based on SFOD-D, and yeah he's an 18A. And well I love my gear porn and you only get proper gear porn as an SF member. For the ones who don't know what gear porn is, well, check the picture out.

Short explanation:

RDIC: Royal Dutch Infantry Commandos

SFOD-D : Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta ( Delta Force )

18A: Special Forces officer ( most of the time with a commanding role )

11A: Infantry Officer ( most of the time with a commanding role )

SF: Special Forces

Annabelle was actually suppose to be a lot younger then 18. I initially had her at 16 and she was a mix of me when I was that age. Shy, bookworm, keeps to herself. I wanted to make a character that without help would have little chance of survival and build her up from there. So I got inspiration from different characters (of the same personality) from different shows. She was more of an experiment for me to see if I could actually use IG interactions to have this girl grow up and become something completely different. So I came up with flaws that would hinder her survival and a personality that would get her killed if she trusted the wrong people. I purposely put this character at such a disadvantage I didn't think she was going to last that long but I was wrong lol
