Your RP character's voice

This thread may have existed before (and maybe I may have started it, myself) but I don't see any in the recent history so here goes!

What is the "official" RP voice you use for your characters (not counting the class voices)?

For me, Tyria's voice as always been Azula from Avatar The Last Airbender. So delightfully evil.  :evil:

Now everyone else share!  :whee:

I can't find an exact match for Se'brik, but Leonardo DiCaprio is close enough.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QflekFEDv9Y


And Haalander is styled after the amazing Christopher Waltz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5s3Oj2cPgcEspecially the part where he says "That's a Bingo!"

I think it did somewhere...once..

And I think my answer stays the same - same as the Actress who plays Karmic.  Angelina Jolie - ala British Imperial accent.  Thinking Tomb Raider and before Jolie; not Post-kids Jolie.  She's too thin for Karmic now.

Seriously, the voice that does the in game Sith Female Pureblood Assassin voice overs works exactly as intended.  She sounds like that.

Forever caught in this deadly dance, no rest or end in sight. Carefully now as the tempo rises, can you keep up my dear?

James McAvoy doing his "American accent" 

He was the main actor in Wanted, X-Men first class he played young Prof X.Just has a kind everyday pleasant voice but he can shout and scream very emotionally when he wants to.

Reithan: Young David Boreanaz and his terrible Irish accent. This requires explaining!
Reason for this being he moved around a lot when he was younger, living in both Imperial and Republic space. Early childhood he was among Miraluka, whom I imagine whilst having an American accent, their dialect is not heavily accented and quite prim-and-proper. Going from that straight to Imperial space for a few years, then returning to Republic space at around age 11-12. It's hard to describe how I'd imagine his accent being - lightly American, but rolling the Rs and pronouncing vowels in a more Irish way. Thus, Boreanaz's two-bob Irish accent sort of suits because it's a mix of the two. Also add the soft breathy Angel angst in there.

Aolanni: Liv Tyler. Even when not speaking in LOTR she has this ethereal elegance to her voice that makes me think of her.

Lakesh: Jaime Murray, hands down. Always heard her as the voice of Lakesh, always will. Mainly thanks to her character Lila on Dexter.

Katzragi: Xena Lucy Lawless~ <3

All I can think of for now~
My drawing was not of a hat.
It was of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant.

I'll do my main four characters!

I've always pictured Thrax's voice as Keith Szarabajka. Sample clip: Joshua Graham - Fallout: New Vegas

Hazek, being a born Imperial, would have a Dromund Kaas accent where his father wouldn't: Example - Vinnie Jones

For my pirate Xaton: Jim Cummings (probably) doing this particular voice.

As for Akunadan, my Jedi, I think this voice, sans modulation: I'm not sure who it is.

Desole (Imperial with acccent) / Armeria (imagine without accent) = Claudia Black https://youtu.be/u94Oo8aR6MM


Nima'Kairn: When Nima'Kairn is Seeing, her voice becomes many, sometimes masculine or feminine, echoing with more than one. The closest I have come to finding a sample? Shodan: https://youtu.be/qXPmtf4udRE

Aideth: Fem Shep sarcastic biznich all the way: https://youtu.be/2sMEIdkLgnE

@Thrax: I think you chose the wrong Szarabajka performance:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dQWAYuWanU
Pehn Qardaak - Captain of the Rodomontade
Ran-del Qardaak - Big Time Space Hero
Lastagir - Hunter for hire, no plans to retire
Hyse Qardaak - Scholar and Warrior of Peace

Taelios either sounds like Wakko Warner ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLTzHRQRhd4 ), [Jess Harnell] probably when he is in a good mood-

or the Scout, maybe without the accent (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geNMz0J9TEQ ) [Nathan Vetterlein] when less in a good mood.

Oh thank goodness, that's exactly the voice I put in my head for him.


Julie Andrews is the voice I often think of for Sasmi.

Brintte would be Penelope Cruz, not just in image but in voice. Cause Spanish accent ruuuuuuleeeees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Lp4i4IzaIc

Ismeria was hard... but Naomi Watts does the trick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDMgj4lDQWY&list=PLDC9B9D6DA5550857&index=1

Fal was Tyra Banks. I listened to her and I couldn't avoid smiling cause she has a fun voice and her light accent is a nice touch. I also love the energy and the expressions she uses are just like Fal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aINaHOxZN_4&list=PLDC9B9D6DA5550857&index=12


Still looking for the voices of the others.

I always imagined Tae would be more like this.

Malagant uses my voice (since his appearance is based largely - pun somewhat intended - on my own), but alas, I don't have any examples of my voice to offer, heh heh...
