The Character Dating Profile

I was tagged by Fadwa at Word Wonders. Thanks so much for the tag Fadwa, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much. There was only ever going to be one choice as to which character I’d be featuring; Kell from the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab. However I don’t actually see Kell taking the time to do this, so instead Rhy has filled in the profile for him. After all he entered Kell in the Essen Tasch, why not this as well?

The Character Dating Profile


I imagine this being written in between A Darker Shade of Magic and A Gathering of Shadows.


Written by Prince Rhy Maresh on behalf of Kell Maresh

and edited by Kell.

I am capable of completing this without you looking over my shoulder.

…Why did I agree to this again?


Kell Maresh.

It’s just Kell.



Interested In:


I’m an Antari, it’s my job to be “interested” in magic.


Not that I’ve seen anything of the world outside of Arnes.

—and illegally smuggling magical artifacts between the worlds.

…Not anymore.


The Character Dating Profile - Rhy & Kell

Considering this profile is supposed to be for me wouldn’t it be better to actually include a photo of me, rather than just one of me standing right behind you?

…Good point.

The Character Dating Profile - Kell


I guess.

Religious Views:

The only religion my brother has is magic.

Greatest Ambition:

…What is your greatest ambition Kell?

My job is to protect you Rhy, to keep you safe.

Especially after what happened.

His greatest ambition is to one day travel outside of Red London, and see the rest of the world.

Favourite Hobbies:

He collects memorabilia from all the different Londons, other than that…any hobbies Kell?

If a hobby is something you find yourself doing a lot then keeping you out of trouble is one of them.

…Moving on.

Three Best Skills:

His protectiveness, his strong will, and his ability to always find himself in the centre of the trouble about to happen.

I feel that has more to do with the people I find myself in the company of than anything else.

You still have a talent for it.

Ideal Partner:

Someone who is cunning, daring and quick-witted. Someone who craves adventure and isn’t afraid to court death chasing after it—

This description is starting to seem familiar.

—A capable thief who is talented enough to pick pocket the Prince of Red London—

Very familiar…Rhy…

—and who is currently sailed around Arnes, discovering what the world has to offer.

Perfect Date:

Based on what they’ve done so far Lila would enjoy fighting the monarchy in White London and wrecking havoc in Red London.

You didn’t see her with the stone in Grey London, things could have turned out a lot worse.

My brother would be close behind, chasing after her.

My tags:

And if there’s anyone else out there who wants to take part, consider yourself tagged. Just send me a link to your post in the comments so I can see what your answers are.

    1. Thanks so much Marie. 🙂 ❤️ I had so much fun taking part in this tag, and it made me want to write more as well. 😀 I’m also really glad you and other people commenting think I got the characters voices right too. I was very conscious of that while writing and again while posting this.
      That’s all right, I can’t wait to see what character you pick for this one. 🙂 ❤️

  3. OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS POST AJL;DFKAJSL;FKDASD. So creative, and you wrote it with such a great voice too, Beth! Exactly like I’d imagine Rhy and Kell to be like. (I can’t wait to read a bit of your writing if this profiling thing is similar to that! And even if it wasn’t, I’d still want to read it ahaha.) Yess Kell’s ideal partner is OBVIOUSLY Lila Bard. And yes, Kell definitely has the amazing attributes of protectiveness and a strong will!! Love this post, Beth. ❤

    1. Thanks so much May. 🙂 ❤️ This was such a fun tag to take part in, and yeah it gave me a chance to try out writing again in a small way. I’m really glad you think I got their characters right (I was nervous about that when writing this) and I think this profile is similar to my general writing style as well. 🙂
      There’s no one else but Lila for Kell is there?
      Thanks so much May! 🙂 ❤️

  4. WOW! What a fun tag… what a FUN rendition of it! I haven’t read A Darker Shade of Magic YET 😭 but I’m planning to by the end of the year… You REALLY make me anxious to read it as soon as I can with this cute byplay between them, Beth! ♥️ AND GAH! Thank so much for tagging me, Beth! This is going to be a hard decision to make… but it’ll be a super fun hard!

    1. It was so much fun. Definitely in my top five when it comes to tags I’ve taken part in. 😀
      Oh in that case I really hope you love the Shades of Magic series Dani. It’s one of my all-time favourites so I recommend it to pretty much everyone, and I loved Kell and Rhy’s relationship throughout the trilogy.
      That’s all right. 🙂 ❤️ I took a while before settling on Kell for this tag, so I get what you mean about needing to think about this one more. 😀

  5. Love the dynamics between Kell and Rhy! Kell’s remarks are hilarious and I think you got his personality down to a tee :’)

    This sounds like such a fun tag Beth! And thanks for tagging me! I’ll have to think long and hard about which character I want to make a dating profile for 🙂
