Not sure if this thread will actually take off but it might be fun.  This is for ideas and things about your characters that you've thought of but have yet to somehow bring it into play.


Well, since I'm starting this thread I start off with a few things about Hawke that's not known yet:


Evelyn is allergic to bee stings.  She's been stung once when she was seven which caused a re-action and so she is deeply afraid of bees.


In regards to Evelyn's parents.  Her father is a Pharmacist and her mother is a Librarian.


Evelyn, being a wild child growing up, once stole her sister's boyfriend from her.  Of course, as it's probably known, her sister did the same to her as well.


Evelyn originally didn't want to be a Law Enforcement Officer.  She originally wanted to be a Prosecutor but she changed her mind sometime in July of 2003 for reasons.


Her previous car, before she got her Chevy SS, was a 1977 Camaro that was handed down to her by her parents.  She used to call it her 'rust bucket of a Camaro' before it died on her in 2014.

Most of this is probably known but it was revealed before the switch to Shiloh County so I guess this is for any newcomers:


1) Sjostrom was a cheerleader in high school.

2) Sjostrom's first car was her mother's 92 Honda Civic Si.

3) Sjostrom started smoking cigarette when she was in the Army.  She quit after she left the Army but that didn't last long.

4) During her time in the Army, Sjostrom has:

 -- Seen a Blackhawk get shot down and as the helicopter's blades tore off one of them flew into the soldier she was working on saving; she was unable to save him and he was her first loss.

 -- Shot an insurgent who was about to shoot her.

5) Sjostrom's father, after he left the Marines, worked for the ATF and her mother is a nurse.

6) Sjostrom would love the chance to go back to Hawaii since she hasn't been back there since her family moved to Washington D.C.

7) Sjostrom isn't really a morning person and on her first day of basic training she accidentally told her Drill Instructor to 'eff off' when she was being woken up; needless to say that didn't end well.

Some new ones for Hawke:


1) Evelyn named her dog Savo after Savo Island for the Naval Battles that occurred there during Guadalcanal.

2) In relation to the above, one of Evelyn's grandfathers served on one of the warships that fought there and it was almost all he talked about during his later years in life.

3) Evelyn used to hunt deer but stopped after she moved to Shiloh County because she doesn't want to buy a truck to haul away a deer carcass.

4) Thanks to her ex-fiance she got into SCUBA diving.  She holds an Advanced Open Waters Certification and wants to get a Rescue Diver's Cert.

5) Evelyn has a fear of heights but won't admit it.

6) Hawke likes kids and wants them but they honestly scare the crap out of her or more accurately it's the parents that get her nervous.

7) Though she hasn't completely given up on dating she is very reluctant to go out on dates thanks to her bad luck with men.

8) During Evelyn's time on leave from the Sheriff's Dept, when she was healing from her GSW, she had a tendency to fall asleep in odd places thanks to the medication she was on.

9) Though she loves hockey, Evelyn hates the NHL and only watches college or international hockey

10) Following up on a previous post, yes, Evelyn has given her niece pointers on playing hockey and her niece is a pretty good player already (see post #6 in her home life if interested)

Turkey, that is his number one favorite meat in the entire planet.
Strawberries are his favorite food in the world.
When he hears the shower start he will do anything to get into the bathroom. Locking him out of the bathroom while showering is dangerous to his health.
When CJ is sleeping he is curled at her feet, usually under the covers with his head on her heels.
He loves being around dogs, birds, lizards, he will even lay in a cage with a snake, but you can’t get this little furry critter anywhere near a cat.
He was the runt of his litter and when CJ bought him in Needles, CA the pet shop owner told her he was going to die. A year and a half later he is alive and well giving all his love to CJ.
Though he doesn’t look like it he is a vicious monster that when told will hurt you.
His fur coloration is actually classified as a Sable silver with a black mask, with four white paws.
He doesn’t actually need his harness, he normally will not go farther than two feet away from CJ.

Most of this is going to be redundant from my bio, but I’ll try to get some unique stuff.

  1. Hailey suffered an ectopic pregnancy immediately after returning from her honeymoon.  It is unknown if she can have children.

  2. Hailey’s younger brother, Jim, is a firefighter in Kentucky.

  3. Ironically, when she joined the NJROTC, she did not want to join the military.  She joined the military as part of her “back up plan.”

  4. Hailey was medically discharged from the Navy after getting shot while on a counter-narcotics mission.

  5. In High School, Hailey loved Law Enforcement, but when she returned from the Navy, she resented it, resulting in her quitting with the Lexington Police.

  6. Hailey did not complete her college degree in psychology until after she returned from the Navy and until after she was married.

  7. Hailey is an avid outdoorsman, and she was the driving force behind opening the Great Outdoors shop.  However, the four people who invested in it no longer work in the business.

  8. Hailey was initially hated by her now stepson, Kyle, but the two have grown quite close.

  9. Hailey is an avid gun enthusiast.  In addition to her police service weapon, Hailey owns a Remington .270 hunting rifle as well as a Remington 887 Nitro Mag 12 gage shotgun.
