Character Interviews: The Ultimate Sheet

Hello, readers! Over the past few months, I've been trying to find a way to fill in a few character question sheets that weren't absolutely obnoxious. Today, I've put together the best of the best - a few from other lists (will be linked), a few from my own personal preference, and a few from my peers' preferences. I'm going to fill this in with my answers, just so I can get a feel for it myself. Enjoy! (Uh, if I leave any blank, it's because I'm sort of lazy today... :P )
