✨ First Impressions

♚ VISUAL: So, on a good day, Strange looks like what people would expect a magician to look like: tall, pale, skinny and striking, like hella Byronesque. He has dark hair with flecks of gray throughout.
♚ FASHION: Layers upon layers upon layers. Of course he's going to wear a shirt and then a vest and then a waistcoat and then an actual coat plus a cravat, why wouldn't he? Now that he's in modern world, he's likely to change up his wardrobe a bit, but he'll tend towards clothes that are pseudo1800s as well as in neutral tones: lots of greens, browns, and blacks.
- generally carries himself with a respectable air
- he is a gentleman!
- nosy and inquisitive and hey let's bother this, I want to bother this
There's also sort of a weighty sadness around him because coping with your wife's death is for losers.
♚ AURAL: British and sort of upper crust. Strange's voice isn't too deep and isn't too high pitched. He is DEFINITELY prone to showing his emotions, voice jumping all over the emotional spectrum with his moods.
♚ OLFACTORY: That's a good question. Likely, Strange smells faintly like smoke (he keeps using candles in his spells) and more strongly like whatever nasty thing he's currently using in a spell.
♚ MENTAL INFORMATION: Any sort of creepy telepathing would be able to pick up that he doesn't take loss well in the slightest and is far too impulsive for his own good. There's also potential for some crazy shit going on. Thankfully, Strange is at a canonpoint pre-madness but he's at least had the idea to deliberately drive himself mad in order to better see a fairy.
♚ MAGICAL INFORMATION: just look at his app, the man is WAY TOO FRICKEN OP and definitely reads as "magician!" and "has magic!" and "he's very human but also very magical."


♚ BACKTAGGING: I'll backtag until the cows come home. however, I'll prioritize plot important threads in my backtagging.
♚ FOURTHWALLING: blanket nope! Because really, how many people would know about the series to begin with.
♚ PHYSICAL AFFECTION: ???? Kissing???? What do? Some physical affection would be alright, but Strange isn't going to progress beyond gently placing a hand on someone/those sort of calm, platonic sort of gestures. He's massively hung up about his wife.
♚ PHYSICAL VIOLENCE: He is a gentleman and gentlemen do not fight or kill people or anything like that! Needless to say, this is all a very dignified way of saying it is way too easy to punch Jonathan Strange's face in, because he won't be expecting physical violence in the slightest.
♚ RELATIONSHIPS: he's married and still hung up over his wife (her name is Arabella and she's so pretty and he loves her soooooo much) so yeah, relationships ain't gonna happen unless your name is Arabella and you're so smart and beautiful and amazing and totally not a tree.

♚ SUMMONING: Part of Strange's magic lets him summon a fairy. Ideally back home he'd summon a fairy to make a bargain with it, but new world, new rules, the sort of magician/fairy bargain ain't gonna take!
♚ SCRYING: Strange can see where people are via scrying! Can he do this with your character?
♚ TRAVELING: Can he just show up randomly where you are via teleportation? He usually travels via mirrors, which limits where he can go, though he can travel via puddles if need be.
♚ PERCEPTION: Strange can slightly perceive magical spells and when other people are using magic. He's not as good at this as some other magicians, so it's entirely possible he just doesn't feel when someone's using a spell or as the plot demands.
♚ OTHER MAGICAL NONSENSE: He's got a whole host of other magical nonsense (making weather, making sand into sand horses, teleporting via puddles & mirrors, so on and so forth). If your character's got any sort of thing that means they'd rather not deal with said magical nonsense, please tell me! Likewise, if there's something you don't want your character to see (like, don't use fire magic around Frankenstein's monster) then this is the place to say so! Really, this question is mostly because Strange is ridiculous and I know I can't cover all my bases, so this is the bases covering question.
