Is Your Original Character A "Mary Sue"? Quiz
I'm not a famous author, but I've read a lot of fiction and have a good grasp on what makes a great character. The Mary Sue is the cardinal sin of female characters, to be avoided at any cost. You'll note that a lot of her characteristics have been seen in well-known and beloved literary characters. The key is, she has to be balanced to capture hearts and minds. Answer these 20 questions about your OC and see if she might need editing, or is awesome as-is.

Takes criticism well
Honors deals and promises
Dislikes communicating feelings
Anyway, his main de-sueifier (maybe re-sueifier) is that he’s mute, so he doesn’t say anything. He’s also in a world that’s not as advanced as modern-day, so they don’t have any way for him to communicate with others. (They’ve managed to invent one because of him.)

NICKNAME: Py, or Py-Pie, but only by her significant other.
APPEARANCE: Pyro has bright blue hair tied in a ponytail that hasn't been redone in 10 years. She has a scrawny, but fit build, and she has several scars, a couple stab scars in the stomach area, one from where she was shot and one from a dragon attack, and another scar on her chest, where a flying rock punctured her lung.

NICKNAME: Jackie (she despises this), baixinha (“shorty” in Brazilian Portuguese)
AGE: 8-22 (progresses over the course of the story)
APPEARANCE: 5ft 2in (adult), beige skin tone, dark brown eyes, and buzzed cinnamon-brown hair. Lifestyle has resulted in a compact, athletic build with a few scars (most prominently on her calf and lip). She tends to dress as practically as possible, avoiding anything that hinders movement, presents a fire/chemical hazard, or might get caught on tools/shrubbery. In combat, she wears a fireproof suit and, sometimes, a full-face respirator. Underneath, she wears a bone pendant, carved into a circle containing a flame.
LIKES: Science, her friends, rationality, metallurgy, violin music, sweets, observing animals, campfires, reading, efficiency in work, gardens
DISLIKES: Failure, irrationality, willful ignorance, loss, most people, storms, sex, lying, being seen as incapable/immature, having long hair, being surprised
SKILLS: Advanced chem/biochem knowledge, rudimentary metallurgy, low-tech medicine, tracking, gardening, martial arts
PERSONALITY: Jacqueline is subject to frequent and dramatic changes over the course of the story. However, at her core, exists intense curiosity and loyalty. Possessed of intelligence, passion, and discipline, she respects and aspires to the acquisition and prudent application of knowledge. She is also practical and resilient, able to maintain composure under pressure. Yet a life of frequent loss and contradiction have cultivated a sense of paranoia, moral ambiguity, and social/emotional instability. Once, she was trusting and eager for connection. Subsequent experience proved embittering. After a period of downright belligerence and misanthropy, she settled into a milder detachment and distrust regarding all but a handful of people. Gradually, she has opened and warmed somewhat. However, she still takes little for granted and is fiercely protective of her inner circle. Perhaps her greatest strength and greatest challenge is the ability/pressure to adapt to new, radically different situations. The qualities that empowered her in one scenario often proved useless, even destructive, in another. Furthermore, a combination of upward comparisons, high stakes, and unanticipated (and unwanted) positions of responsibility have left her terrified of failure. She can also hold long grudges and is often the one to make the difficult, painful decisions that others are afraid to make. Instances of peace in the company of close friends elicit the reemergence of that tenderness and humor preserved from childhood.
STRENGTHS: Ingenuity, specific knowledge, decisiveness, exposure to many perspectives, determination, vigilance
WEAKNESSES: Social awkwardness, tendency towards unhealthy obsession, disadvantageous distrust/skepticism, small size (in combat), frequently outnumbered and/or isolated (her own fault, at times)
Note- this character and her world are incredibly bloody neither are intended to glorify violence- quite the opposite, in fact. The portrayal of violence is an exploration and condemnation.

her parents sent her to the human world to keep her safe she grew up believing she was human
she is blonde with blue eyes and light skin
persinality: overprotective and calm but if you mess with her friends and family she will hate you she is nice to those she cares about
