Role Of Quistis Trepe Essay

752 words - 3 pages

I would like to throw my hat in the ring and apply for the canon character Quistis Trepe. I feel very strongly about my ability to portray Quistis in an accurate, thoughtful, and overall pleasant way. I understand Quistis so well that the first time I played through Final Fantasy VIII, I didn’t like her. Her flaws were so apparent to me that I completely tuned out whenever she spoke. It wasn’t until my second or third run-through that I realized how much I can understand her desperate doggedness, her need for control and order, and her tight-ship mentality. She is constantly striving to better herself, even when she has already achieved greatness. This aspect of her character has made her not only a fascinatingly three-dimensional character in my mind, but also a role model for me.

I have given a great deal of thought to her character, her upbringing, and the events that led to who she is – an overachiever instructing a body of her peers, the ultimate outcast. The conversation at the beginning of the game between Quistis and Squall, in which she delights in “finally understanding” her students, takes on a more poignant tone when you later discover that she has, in fact, never really understood her friends. She’s always been alone with her “bossiness.” Loneliness can be an excellent motivation for self-protection, and she protected herself by excelling in every other respect. Now, she stands at the pinnacle of her own goals, but finds herself wishing she were with her friends again. I believe I possess the capability to depict this precarious position, and to gently work Quistis through the choices she must make between her own ambition and the success of her personal relationships.

Below, please find my roleplay audition. While I have portrayed Quistis in a few different roleplays, none of them have taken place during the timeline of these boards. Therefore I chose not to use an existing selection, but to write a fresh piece that could be applied here at BGO. Thank you for your consideration.

Quistis awoke with a start, four minutes before her alarm sounded, unsurprisingly. It was, after all, the...
