At the risk of sounding boring, Dylan’s a resounding 0. He has no interest in men.
((Side note: I don’t actually believe someone can be 100 percent straight or 100 percent gay, I think it’s a matter of having the right partner, but for the sake of the wording of this question Dylan is very much straight, with no variances.))
I’ve got a new disease in me. I’ve got a friend that’s losing sleep. I take it hard, it’s hard to take, I’m wide awake. One more confession, discretion’s not what I need to sell. I never needed a reason for keeping secrets from myself. And now that’s just how I tell I’m wide-awake. I’ll wreck this if I have to. Tell me what good would that do?
Everybody knows that in Hollywood, there are fewer interesting parts for women, and female characters are sexualized a lot. But what I didn’t know until I had a daughter and started watching G-rated movies with her was that we are showing kids a really almost ’50s version of society where there are far fewer female characters, and the ones that are there are highly stereotyped. They don’t get to do very much. They’re very much hypersexualized.
The first study we did on G-rated movies covered a 15-year span. We found that for every one female character, there are three male characters. In crowd scenes, there’s only 17% female characters, which is very strange.
We just completed a study on the occupations in G-rated movies and found that 80% of the jobs are held by male characters. And of the women who hold jobs, there are no scientists, medical professionals, lawyers, politicians, business executives.
Clearly, we’re transmitting a very disempowering and negative message about girls to kids.
I think people think he’d be a Ravenclaw because he’s a telepath, and they’re equating anything mental with wisdom. Charles is smart, certainly, but that’s not his defining factor.
His idealism is far more of a central trait. His belief that they have it in them to be the better men, and his loyalty, and how while he prefers peaceful resolution he won’t hesitate if someone he loves is in danger. He’s also a little naive, which I believe falls perfectly into Hufflepuff’s flaws.
4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?
Prior to leaving home and joining The Raiders, Dylan thought he was pretty attractive. It wasn’t really something he dwelled on, but he was a cocky teenage boy who had a couple girls after him. Once he joined up though, he starting comparing himself to the sleek agents and came up a bit short in his eyes. Guess Terra likes them a little scruffy…
