Lenard Cox-- Age 22.

Time once again for Beautiful People! I will be focussing on Lenard Cox from my Beauty and the Beast retelling. Oh, by the way, how does the title: The Scars of War sound to you? I would like to give this story a definite title, and I would like to know your opinion.

1) What does your character regret the most in their life? 
Not buying a super yo-yo when he was sixteen. His next-door-neighbor, Jesse, got one, and lorded it over Lenard all through the rest of high school. It was very trying.

2) What is your character's happiest memory? Most sorrowful memory? 
The time he won an egg sandwich eating contest when he was eight. He ate eleven and three-quarters. The most sorrowful memory? After the contest, when he threw-up.

3) What majorly gets on your character’s nerves? 
Brushing his teeth.

4) Do they act differently when they're around people as opposed to being alone? If so, how? 
When he's alone, Lenard likes to juggle. He can actually do five balls at once. But in public, he gets too bumbled and jumpy to do it right. So basically, he's more coordinated when alone then with people.

5) What are their beliefs and superstitions? (Examples: their religion or lack of one, conspiracy theories, throwing salt, fear of black cats.) 
 Lenard doesn't have any superstitions, but he has a fear of cats, because once his aunt was bit by one. She didn't die, but Lenard is too afraid of just plain getting bit to go near felines.

6) What are their catchphrases, or things they say frequently? 
Maybe "oh" or "um?" Though maybe he doesn't say those too, too much.

7) Would they be more prone to facing fears or running from them? 

8) Do they have a good self image? 
Sort of. When he's by himself, yes, When he's with Stewart, no.

9) Do they turn to people when they're upset, or do they isolate themselves? 
Lenard lives alone, so he doesn't really have anyone to turn to. Besides, he has a good habit of bouncing out of upsetment, which is good because Stewart can be really mean to him. So, I guess kind of neither.

10) If they were standing next to you would it make you laugh or cry? 
At least smile, maybe laugh.

Aw, he sounds funny and sweet. I like how he's better at juggling when he's alone, and that you've linked that to how he feels when he's around people.

I'm curious when you say it's a Beauty and the Beast retelling as to which character he is. He doesn't sound much like the "beast," but I don't want to assume. I was thinking more along the lines of one of the characters in the castle (but that's my Disney-fied view of the story so.) :D

Jaguar Hero: This story is based after the Disney version, though things are changed. Lenard is based on the character Lefou, Gaston's sidekick.

Oh! Lefou. That's perfect. I definitely see it now with the answers and that picture. :)

thank you for letting me know!
