    Default V: Soup or Salad?

    V's complexity and simmering temper clearly makes him a soup. Soup is the more intelligent choice and that's what V is all about. His thoughts practically boil over, again a very soupish trait. I thought it would be important to get this settled.

    Obviously he's a salad.

    • He recently exhibited tactical reasoning resembling stale croutons (old, bland, and easily crushed).
    • He has shown grace under pressure resembling iceberg lettuce (thin, flaky, and easily torn).
    • He is regarded by many as resembling spinach (using V is good for them, but it leaves a bad taste in their mouths).
    • His spells resemble cherry tomatoes (bright, flashy spells that are eaten in one bite) rather than a good soup (long-lasting spells that are savored).
    • His vocabulary resembles feta cheese (huge mouthfuls scattered all over at every opportunity).
    • His hair resembles purple onions topping a salad.
    • He has a Soul Splice vinaigrette poured all over him and oozing into every fiber of his being--you can try to scrape it off your salad, but it's still soaked in pretty well.


    All in all, definitely a salad.

    Intelligent choices ... really? Are we reading the same comic?

    If soup is the intelligent choice, then V is salad.

    Obviously V is the applesauce you can ask for instead.

    Unusual tasting and difficult to identify what kind of apple it is.

    I'm starting to think that there are fewer things that we do know about V than things we don't. Gender? Alignment? Reasons for adopting children? Soup/salad? etc. Maybe V is a thin vegetable soup with many large chunks or a salad with so much dressing, it's served in a bowl.

    We've probably gotten more information about the MiTD than about V. Or it's at least a tie.

    Elves in general, yes. V would use whatever's most efficient.

    Nurture. Both V's parents are/were rangers, and it was Aarinadrius' influence that led V to being an antisocial nerd geek wizard.


    Which is more important to V: family or friends?

    Friends, clearly. His friends are interested in leveling up, and his family is not.

    It really comes down to, he's an elf, so obviously he's a salad. I suppose he's lucky the fiends didn't make him steamed vegetables.

    I'm assuming you meant great taste or more filling, in which case the answer is obviously great taste. For instance, V would be a Filet Mignon while Roy would be a large porterhouse.

    Definitly fire. Hes hot-headed, impulsive and once he burned all his spells, hes pretty much useless.
