Guess That Character Blogfest Part Deux

It’s time for the great reveal!  Yesterday you all tried to guess what my character Sage Reynolds looks like based on an excerpt of his voice alone.  Can I just say so many of you came close it was almost creepy?  Without further ado, I give you:

Sage Reynolds


So many of you had the right details, but if I have to choose a winner I guess it would be the very first commenter yesterday:

Okay, so here's what I'm seeing: Not tall, but taller than Kelly, tanned skin. Brown hair, curling slightly, maybe, highlighted by the sun, with that kind of unusual beauty you get when a tomboy kid learns how to look pretty and enjoy it. Eyes with color that contrasts with her face - like a really deep brown…

Almost everyone got the brown wavy hair- how did you know??  Tanned skin and muscles.  It just strikes me as so weird how you all got such a close image from just the voice in the piece.  Ya'll are a bunch of psychics! lol.   Great job you guys!  Thanks Jen for such an awesome blogfest thanks so much to all of you for playing!

Other commenters who were on target:

Ooh - I like this guy! I'm going to say he has wavy, longish brown hair and brown eyes. He's pretty tall, with a slender but not wimpy build. And he's really hot. :)

A somewhat skinny build that he's attempting to grow into. With a slight slouch because of the weight on his shoulders. Brown wavy hair that doesn't fall into his eyes, an attempt to make people respect him again. And muscles that look misplaced because of his skinny-ness.

I'd say he's slightly taller than average, solidly built, but not intimidating. He's got a strong sense of right and wrong which makes up for what he lacks size-wise. Brown hair, and light brown eyes. Hair is a little longer, bangs falling in face.
Hmmm...jeans and tennis shoes kinda guy

Damyanti Says:
I keep thinking this guy has some serious abs...definitely a looker, brown hair, dreamy, dark eyes.


Brown hair, streaked blond from the sun. Tallish, tanned, muscular but not large. Hazel eyes. A gentle heart in spite of his quick temper. Protective of his girlfriend.

Good show!

Great scene :)

Tall (she had to reach up on her toes), tough, athletic yet lanky build.
Dark hair, eyes. Scruffy hair :)

I see a tall, dark-haired boy with a slim/muscular physique and a shaggy or messy hairstyle. I don't know his eye color, but I want it to be light and striking to contrast with his hair!

Diane J. Says:
I see a teen of about 17, he is built like a wide receiver, but doesn't play football. He has dark brown hair that is a smidge (just a smidge) too long. Brown eyes and a killer smile. Maybe even a small divet on one corner of his chin when he flashes a big smile. Very toned and very tan.

Okay, I'm totally thinking Dallas from the Outsiders--medium build but ripped, devil-may-care attitude, brown eyes,and messy hair in a good way. Very romantic with a sensitive side, though. Love him!


Great excerpt! Fantastic! Umm, okay I see a guy who tends to mold into what other people see him as. So maybe slightly distressed jeans, devil may care hair that tends to do what it wants, I'm thinking darker brown with some lighter bits. I see his eyes as dark brown with some kind of untold secret within their depths. I could also see him like playing a guitar which sounds soooo random to me right now, but whatever I guess. I am definitely checking out what he looks like tomorrow!

I see a real sweet young man, always well-meaning but clumsy, still not quite past the gawky teenage phase. He is cute in his awkwardness, though: messy, curly mop of dark brown hair, decent build, could be even better with a bit of tone. Medium height, say 5'8-5'9", brown puppy eyes.







Christine Danek Says:


I love this! Great voice.
Brwon, messy hair. Hazel eyes with hint of green. Medium build. Sneaky/sexy smile.

Can't wait to meet him!

WOO HOO! I was close. It was a really fun experiment because there was no way we could have KNOWN without a description. We need an FBI profiler to come through and do this see if he/she could do better.

Francine said...

Hi,

Hee hee, it's such fun seeing how the writer imagines their character to be!

Wow sexy... I like!!!! So like I was telling Jess, I'm a terrible guesser so now I'm sitting at 0-2.

Thanks again for joining on the fun! This blog fest turned out more than I could have ever imagined!!!

J.C. Martin @ Fighter Writer said...

Woo hoo! My first correct guess! :) Thanks for the entry, I enjoyed it!

Brenda Drake said...

Totally love Sage (kind of feeling cougarish at the moment). He makes me wish I were a teen. LOL :D

LTM said...

excellent! And so close--I still like the hazel eyes approach... yum! ;p

Rose Cooper said...

HAHA, I was like THE one person who was off on my description! Oh well, it was so much fun and your snippet was great!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Yum, yum! LOL -- Great look for your character; he's a perfect fit!

Bon week-end!

Diane J. said...

Awesome! Who is that guy, he has a similar picture mouth that my teen son does. He also has the same brown eyes of my son and at the right angle my son has the same sharp jawline. Only difference? My son has sandy blond hair, same length, but no curl or wave.

I just loved this blog fest!

Diane J. said...

Hmmm, my teen son doesn't see the resemblence I tried explaining it was more the look he's making, but he says I'm wrong. And he thinks I'm nuts. Teens!

Steph Sinkhorn said...

Aw, I guessed blond, lol. But he definitely has that sexy surfer look going on about him, which is perfect.

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Yay, I guessed correctly! Except I typed 'her' in the comments... odd... I've messed up he/she before, but him/her... Yesterday my mind was on vacation, I guess. :D Great pic, and I loved the snippet!
(p.s. it's pronounced like keidi, you're right. :D)

Jemi Fraser said...

Wow - it's amazing how many people had correct elements - you painted a vivid scene :)

I didn't read other guesses until I skimmed them today - it's fun to see what other folks think! :)

Clara said...

Hes waaaaayyyy yummier then I thought, thanks for creating him! Woho =)

Amanda Sablan said...

Woo, I think I got 'em pegged! Great show, Creepy Query Girl!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Ooh, I know I was way off but he looks much nicer than I imagined. Great job. :)

Talei said...

Oh my, he's quite dishy. And definitely the perfect Sage - what a great name btw. And its amazing how many guessed right - well done you! ;))

The Alliterative Allomorph said...
