Hello my name is Mika and I’m the one that’s running things on this here blog. This is a roleplaying blog for the state of Pennsylvania. He is a personification of the state that’s also a charatcer in my webcomic Stars and Stripes Forever!. Role playing can be found on this blog along with actual blogging about the state. I just don’t want to alarm anyone, because most in the past made the mistake of thinking PA was an actual person. So that’s just a splurg about what’s up with this blog.
Name: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
Human Name: Alexander M. Franklin, M.D.
Occupation: Clinical Psychologist
Appearance: 38 years old
Personality: Pennsylvania tends to be the most placid out of the Mid-Atlantic states. Calm, respectful and dependable; he’s usually the shoulder to lean on and the one to lend a non-judgemental ear. Naturally optimistic (to the point that its disgusting) and easy going, Pennsylvania is usually the type to get along with most, and have his head in the clouds. While on the other hand, he finds it rather difficult to tolerate the much more rowdy, egotistical states. They’re usually the one’s to try old Penn’s patience. He usually says what needs to be said, and isn’t very fond of giving details of the most intimate aspects of his life. Yes he’s very old fashion and values his privacy. He holds tight to the notion of, what’s said behind closed doors, stays there. However, Pennsylvania often times lacks the brain to mouth filter. Which means he will spew things that he is thinking at the moment, without much thought behind it. This leads to him saying things, that he never meant to say in the first place. Then when nervous, it leads him to nonsensical ramblings. Which is quite entertaining if you find amusement in such a thing.
Not much of a religious man, Pennsylvania still hold onto some remnants of his Quaker religion (simplicity and pacifism), but most certainly he identifies best with Deism.
Pennsylvania is kind, yes, but often times his kindness is mistaken for weakness. His ability to give others his full trust, usually has a way of biting him in the ass. Pennsylvania doesn’t anger easily, but when he’s pushed to his brink, all his pent up anger and frustrations are released. He has had bouts where he’s gone into a blind rage of sorts, and barely remembers what has happened. This stems from his terrible habit of letting his negative feelings be and just bury them deep within. He never vents to others, for he doesn’t want to burden others with his troubles, that is the last thing he wants to do is worry the people that he loves. But sadly he does it anyway. His selflessness is typically a double edge sword of sorts.
Despite the negatives, the keystone state is relentlessly strong; pushing through the bad times with high hopes for what’s to come. Leave it to him to break the ice with his witty, yet unorthodox sense of humor and keen intellectual anecdotes.
