Being a Boy
I created my first male character that I actually felt comfortable playing this weekend. I’d wanted to try druid, as they have such versatility as a hybrid class, and I was bored with the night elf starting area, so I created my tauren druid. Honestly, there’s not a huge amount of physical difference between male and female tauren, not like the humanoid races in Warcraft…I can’t handle the grotesquely huge chest and arms, and the pissed-off and/or constipated faces that most of the male characters have. Plus, I relate to characters very personally, so I always play females. This guy was different…from the start, he had a personality and a bit of a story to tell.
He’s a shy type, very sweet despite his looks; he can usually be seen sitting under a tree with his nose in a book. His family don’t understand him, and his father won’t speak to him because the boy has a serious lack of testosterone. He’s a daydreamer. He can fight, but he will go out of his way to avoid fights…he’s a flower picker and a bookworm and a bit of an artist. I like him.
