Joe Chameleon: a character I could never forget.
Joe Chameleon was a character that I created way back in high school. He was only ever supposed to be a supporting character, possibly even a side-kick. Despite that, I fell in love with him. He was an awesome character and it seemed like he was happy to be on the side-lines of all the stories I ever dreamed up.
(Note: I never actually got around to writing any of those stories.)
But Joe Chameleon deserves more than just being a fond memory. He deserves to be forever remembered. So I figured I would make a journal entry with Joe being the main subject. And from here on out, this is just his profile so that, if I ever decide to finally sit sown and write a story and it's missing a side-kick, Joe's stats will be right here.
Joe Chameleon: age unknown
There is a lot of speculation as to what Joe Chameleon actually is. He could be Fae born. He could be a demi-god. He could even be a mutant. Whatever the case is, no one that knows Joe actually knows what he is nor do they know how old he actually is. Joe Chameleon, as far as anyone knows, is immortal. By immortal, I mean, he does not age and because he does not age, he cannot die of natural causes. Joe can, in fact, be killed.
There is a lot of mystery surrounding Joe Chameleon and, in all honesty, he seems to be terribly amused by it all. If he knows what he is, Joe is not telling. Frankly, Joe Chameleon sounds more like an alias than an actual name and that may be the case entirely. But, as I've explained before, Joe is not going to let us in on that secret.
Joe Chameleon is what you would call a trickster. I mean that in more ways than one. Personality wise, it describes him perfectly. Joe Chameleon always tries to bring laughter in any situation and sometimes it borders on cruel. Deep down, though, he has a heart of gold.
Joe Chameleon might actually be a true trickster, like in the stories, a shape-shifting god. Now, as far as anyone knows, Joe can only manipulate his features. He can make his hair any color or grow it long in an instant. He can sharpen his eyes to make them look more fierce. Joe Chameleon can basically become any person he pleases.
As you can see, he can be a tricky person to describe because there is so little information about him.
Still, he is one of my favorite characters and I would love to use him in a story some day.
