What music do you think defines your character?

Came up with this idea today. If you could pick any kind of music, and it doesn't have to just be one song, it can be anywhere from one to three or even a fourth one thrown in there if you're feeling creative :cool: , that you feel defines your character (lyrical, orchestral or whatever) what would it/they be?

For example, here are mine:

(I feel this would be Zal's main theme. The drums really give off a feeling of adrenaline to me, I can picture this playing as my character is chasing down a bounty through a crowded area or across some rooftops.)

(This would be the type of music to play were Zal to go up against a particularly big enemy one on one. Think a berserker or something of that nature.)

Character
Pretty much everything by the Eagles (not The Eagles). Why? Because despite the shift from more country-rock to regular rock, they still managed to keep enough of a country edge with their harmonies to appeal to a huge fanbase. But on top of that, their songs charter the disillusionment and confusion of the 1970's, a decade without the massive social upheaval of the later 1960's.

I think that disillusionment is perfect for Sarge, but despite that there's usually an air of hope to their songs, especially once they release Long Road out of Eden. It's that mixture of doubt and hope that I feel encapsulates Sarge, but there's also such easy-going songs as Take It Easy which define more of a public persona.
 
For Tracyn, it'd have to be the piano. It's odd to think of a piano for an aggressive and damaged character like Tracyn, but the piano is one of the few instruments that has such a broad range of emotions to choose from. Runner by O'Halloran is one of the pieces that I could say properly displays the tragedy, rage, and all that with Tracyn.

As for Preliat, I would say something along the lines of a cello. Something darker, something less refined, more primal in it's tone.

Helmut's is always classical music, but Chupa's is a single song:

On the bow of a vessel hovering just above the rolling tides of the sea, cloaked in fine scaly armor that shimmers like the very sea of which it mirrors in it's surface, does so bring forth a young Mon Calamarian poised ready in mind, body and faith to reclaim his home world. As the warrior born in the stars sails through another abyss forged of water, salt and blood, a deep breath is inhaled. Webbed fingers grip the railing that holds him in place and once its grip is tighten to it's most extreme does it so only break by the breath of the warrior, now serene and at one with the Ocean. Before him the skies darken with no clouds, but of metal and sin, destroyers of stars descend upon the blue world. A sword of light emits from a hand held hilt and is brought down, angled and unwavering to the presence of the iron made invaders. Silent and still as the quite storms, the Mon Calamrian maintains his pose, but from behind him does he inspire the roars of a legion of ships and soldiers following under his name, honor and banner.

What's the sound of a violin bow coated in peanut butter and broken glass being dragged across the exposed ribcage of a vivsected bunny? That, plus a ragtime piano.
