I’ve seen this chain around a few times, but it never really grabbed me before. But this month, the theme was friends. And that’s the best possible thing I could do for my characters along this chain. So, here we go. Meet my characters, Jean and Cobalt.
Beautiful People: Friends Edition
- How long have they known each other, and how close are they?
A year or two at most. They haven’t known each other very long at all.
- What’s their earliest memory of being good friends?
Jean and Cobalt being friends was more of a gradual thing. Cobalt was open to being friends from the start, but Jean was wary about him for quite a while. They started being friends pretty much when Jean decided Cobalt wasn’t the most annoying person on earth.
- Do they fight? How long do they typically fight for?
Oh, yes. They fight. Mostly just about conflicting views or one just annoying the other; probably Cobalt annoying Jean. But Cobalt’s good at defusing situations like that with a joke or something, so it never lasts too long.
- Are their personalities similar or do they compliment each other?
Cobalt and Jean are almost complete opposites. He’s a jokester, clumsy, awkward, extreme optimist and almost never plans anything out. Jean is serious, coordinated, professional, more of a realist and likes to plan things out more. There’s also the extrovert-introvert difference as well, which is pretty obvious.
- Who is the leader of their friendship (if anyone)?
If I have to say one, it would be Jean. It kind of comes with the fact that she usually has a plan, whereas Cobalt doesn’t. He just likes to mess with Jean’s plans.
- Do have any secrets from each other?
Nothing big, really. Jean would be more likely to keep big secrets from Cobalt, but not spitefully. The only secret I could see Cobalt keeping would be if his feelings had been hurt. He’d mostly not bring it up because he doesn’t like dealing with it.
- How well do they know each other’s quirks and habits?
Extremely well. Cobalt’s are obvious and numerous and it doesn’t take much for Jean to pick up on them. Jean has a few, and Cobalt’s good at noticing that kind of stuff, so he of course takes the opportunity to tease.
- What kind of things do they like to do together?
They both like getting stuff done and figuring things out. Goal oriented things usually. Other than that, they’d go along with things the other person picked just to humor them and turn out having more fun than expected.
Maybe Jean would finally get Cobalt into a library, or Cobalt would start a prank war. Jean would try and teach Cobalt a code-cracking method and Cobalt would take Jean to a carnival. Something like that.
- Describe each character’s fashion style (use pictures if you’d like!)
How are their styles different/similar?
Well… Cobalt wears a robot suit and helmet pretty much all the time. So that’s his fashion style. Pretty simple.
Jean wears black a lot, mostly because *cough* she’s a spy, and that’s what spies wear. But she does like knee length skirts a lot and little pretty things. Like a bracelet or a necklace.
- How would their lives be different without each other?
They even each other out a lot. Jean helps Cobalt stay more grounded and serious and Cobalt helps Jean loosen up and laugh every once and a while. Without each other, they’d probably both be really sad, but express it different ways.

So, that’s Jean and Cobalt. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed!
