My Character Stefan Meyer

Born August 14, 1966
Age 19
Border Guard
Light reddish blond hair, blue gray eyes

What is your happiest memory?
My happiest memory was the day I became a soldier.  I had be taught that this was one of the best jobs in the world.  I was proud to serve my country.  I felt really privileged to be among the elite and serve on the border.

What don’t you want anyone to find out about you?
I don’t want anyone to know how my views have changed.  What they taught us in school, and what I believed for so long is not completely true.  I have seen a lot  of things I can’t talk about.  It would put me and my family in danger.  I have to say that I am not real happy with my life right now.

What is the best part of your personality?
It is funny how people see you.  Because I am a border guard, some people see me as being cold hearted. I am the total opposite.  I am a caring, loving and really fun person to be around.  You just have to get to know me before I let people see the “fun” side of me.

How would your best friend describe how you look?
My best friend would describe me as being 5’11” tall.  I have red hair that is like a red tinted blond.  When I’m out in the sun a lot my hair gets lighter. My complexion is fair.  They would also tell you that I am the life of the party.  I know most people don’t see that side of me.  My friends know me as a practical joker.

What irritates you?
One thing that really irritates me is when people tell me what they “think” I want to hear instead of telling me the truth.  It seems like my world is filled with lies anymore.  There seems to be no trust.

Tell me about your family.
One of the reasons I became a border guard was because I had no family.  I’ve been on my own since I was seventeen.  Both of my parents were killed in an accident at a factory where they worked.  I was old enough to join the army and that is what I did.  They took care of my housing and everything else.  I am up for a promotion and I’ll be able to get a reclaimed state house.

What do you think of yourself when you look in the mirror?
When I look in the mirror I see someone with a lot of confidence.  I have confidence in my ability to become whatever I want to be.  I am the only thing that can stand in the way of becoming a success.

What’s the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
The most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me was a prank one of my friends played on me.  I had just been given my first weekend off.  My friends thought it would be very funny  to provide me with a cabin in the woods.  They said they had stocked it with some food.  When I got there I went in and put my things down.  I went to the refrigerator to get something to eat and there was a copy of orders for me to work that very weekend.  I threw all of my stuff back into my car and raced back to my post.  I rushed in to my commander’s office and apologized for the mix up.  I explained I was ready to fulfill my duty and accept whatever discipline was required.  I knew when I saw the way he was smirking that something was wrong.  He couldn’t hold it together.  He had been in on the prank.  My friends were always talking about how intense I was in my job and they thought it would be good to make me ease up a bit.  The orders were false.  I was so embarrassed that I had made such a big scene.  Everyone in the office was laughing at me.  They weren’t in on it but thought it was the funniest thing.  By the time I got back to the cabin I only had eighteen hours of leave left.  I learned to ease up a bit after that.

Do you have a crush on anyone?
I don’t have a girlfriend.  I am really focused on my career right now.  I figure one day I will find the right girl.  She’ll have to be pretty spunky and funny for me to fall for her.

What do you really, REALLY want more than anything else in the world?
I want to be the best person I can be.  I want to find out who that person is.  Right now I feel like I am just going through the motions.  After my parents died I just kind of lost myself.  I thought joining the army would tell me who I am.  After some of the things I’ve witnessed, I’m not really sure who I am.  I feel like I need to be a hero to someone but I don’t know who that someone is.

Is there anything you would die for?
I would die for my beliefs.  The problem is my belief system seems to be changing.  So, first I need to figure that out.

Is there anything you area really good at?
I am very good with planning, organizing, and working with my hands.  I love to build things on my days off.

This is how I envision Stefan.  Did I capture him?
Is there anything that you would like to know about him that
I may have left off?
