I guess most of you have thought about what clothing/music/etc style your OC's have, but have you ever thought about their view on religion or other social culturers? Like, what kinds of gods are there in your OC's World (if any) and do they believe in them, do you have OC's who belong to a cult of some kind, or do you even have an OC who's a god and if so what are their powers? I'd love to know!
My answer: My OC's live in a world with many different beliefs just like in our world, but it's definitively confirmed that there are spirits, demons and such with supernatural powers. Some of them are regarded as gods to certain groups of people and there's cults and sects just like in our world blah blah.
-Phiora is a demon, and the rest of her demon tribe regards themselves as gods or at least higher beings. Phiora however does not, and her way of living could be described as a branch of satanism, not that she worships Satan but that her life evolves around herself. She doesn't find her better or more important that others, but she sees no point in focusing on other's well-being either. She leaves people alone as long as they do the same to her, but if someone tries to physically hurt her, take her food or shelter (or other things of basic need), she'll go demon on their asses without mercy.
-Honesse isn't really religious, and just believes in the golden rule (treat others as you want to be treated yourself). The same goes with Riley. Give respect, get respect. Damn tree huggers
-Holly isn't downright ignorant, but she's probably the least religious of my characters. There's a lot of things she needs to pay more respect to, to be honest (not littering, buying eco food etc). She doesn't at all mean to be disrespectful, she's just really scatterbrained and a bit immature when it comes to things like that. Good thing Honesse's there to nag on her.
-Jocelyn is basically just really tired of some of the gods' and demons' shit. She can't stand misuse of power, or cults full of crazy people carrying out a lifestyle that's completely disconnected from reailty. It just makes her head hurt.
-Shazuna and Cazim's beliefs can be compared to vikings and their northern mythology. They're completely against the part of their cultures that still practices human sacrifices, tho. Shazuna also practices a bit of white nature magic (can be compared to Wicca, I guess?)
-Ema and Jesse isn't religious, worth mentioning is that Ema sometimes practices aspects of the Goa Culture (meditation and
uh psychedelic drugs) while Jesse is a punk rocker who believes anarchy is a stupid idea, lel.
-Vinh is inspired by a buddhism-like way of thinking because of his cultural background, but it's not like he's a hardcore practicer of the religion. Josh follows his example however, because it gives him peace and calm that he really needs.
Aaand lastly Zia is a kid so she believes in unicorns and the tooth fairy and Summer believes in alcohol and nice clothes. And Chase is just a psychopath.
