Meet the Side Character: Patrick Thursday

As some of you might recall, a week or so ago I did something called 'Meet the Side Character.' I was going to do one last week, but to be painfully honest, I hadn't been able to develop my other side characters enough in time to do it last week. I've got beta reading for Morgan @ Back to the Drawing Board, working on my own manuscript, a sci-fi rewrite of Beowulf for school, and a chapter in a Supernatural comedy that I'm co-writing with Natalie @ Scriven Madness and Karissa @ The Senseless and the Sparkly (you should check them out by the way. They talk about childhood stories as well as writing and they're really entertaining).

Anyway, point is that I haven't had a lot of time to work on characters, but I finally got some time in to do this!

Thursday is an ESFP. He's a bit of a wild child, but if someone needs him, he's there. 

His big old handsome face
Full Name: Patrick Rohan Thursday
Age: 21
Hobbies: Computer coding, watching action movies
Role in the story: He's Ulysses' hacker and social media consultant. He monitors how much publicity Ulysses is getting and deletes any incriminating information.
What he would do with $1,000,000: Probably buy a really fantastic TV and sound system, then save the rest. Or spend it on things he needed. Or parties. Probably parties.
Hey there! I'm Patrick. Or Thursday. Or Thurpat. Or whatever you want. I respond to basically anything that isn't exceedingly rude. My life is pretty sweet, working with Ulysses on stuff, though I wouldn't wanna be him. He has to deal with all the crap we put Chicago through 'cause he's the leader and all that. Oh well. I ain't complainin'.

How do you all develop your characters? Would you like to see more of these in the future? Would you like either Stocker or Thursday to come back?
