Describe yourself in three words:
Outrageous, fierce-tempered, proud.
What do you fear most?:
Not remaining the sort of person I wish to be-meaning, becoming obsequious, weak, regarded as not a force to be reckoned with. To be remembered as someone's puppet-to be remembered as someone who could be coerced. Being considered puny and ninny-ish.
Do you prefer to be stamped as a male or female character, or does it matter?:
It does not matter. The personality is what matters.

Patient or Impatient?: Impatient
Dutiful or Rebellious?: Rebellious
Forgiving or Vengeful?: Vengeful
Brash or Careful?: More brash. I am sometimes a mixture of both, though. I will not be as brash as to yell, for example, at a professor controlling my grades, and therefore my success, for no reason, but if they insult my family or myself, I would lose my temper.
Lustful or Innocent?: Lustful.
Reserved or Outspoken?: Outspoken.
Manipulative or Unassuming?: Neither. If I have to choose, manipulative, but I don't always have the patience.
Whimsical or Practical?: A mixture. More whimsical, perhaps.

Who is your favorite I, Claudius character and why?: Livia, I think. You have to admit, the woman had brains and balls of steel. ;) She manipulated everyone, she made certain her son inherited the throne...disregarding the fact it took her ages. I absolutely loved her speech when Augusts died, by his bedside. The way she disposed of everyone in her way was pretty darn brilliant, too. The only thing I disliked was when she was cruel towards her grandson, Claudius.
Who do you relate to the most?:
Well, Livia, again. I would do anything for my family, murder, lie, steal, cheat, etc. And she was sorry when she killed Augustus, despite what anyone might say!
Who is your least favorite I, Claudius character and why?:
Tiberius!!!! He is such a cretin. All right-if he doesn't want the power, he is supposed to say so, and choose in according to that. But nooo, that's not Tiberius. He goes and leaves the woman he loves-all right. I would understand that choice. I would understand if he kept her as a mistress, secretly. But he had to go an mope around, crying constantly over what he was doing and what his mother was forcing him to do. He wasn't man enough to endure the path he had chosen, just as he wasn't man enough to say no to his mother. Drusus was so much better(and handsomer ;) ).

How do you go about getting what you want in life?:
I believe I fight for it. It has to be important enough to me, however, because otherwise I am prone to getting fed up with the work it takes and, due to my laziness, giving up. The things that can keep me going are my pride(always), my temper, my greed.
Friends and family - what do they mean to you?:
Friends are relatively important to me, and I'd pick friends over other friends, and I try not to hurt the friends I care about. I'd always pick family over friends, though, without any dispute.
How far would you go to advance your own position or achieve your greatest desires?:
As far as I could without getting caught and losing. I would never murder those I love, that I believe I can say for certain. I would try to refrain from injustice towards those I care about, too. However, when faced with power and when faced with my own pride, I would ignore the well-being of anyone save for myself and those I love, like family, significant other, children. For my family and those I love, I would destroy worlds, even worlds consisting of my friends.
What would you consider to be one of the greatest injustices of all?:
If all I had was taken from me, if my rivals were to prosper above me/win conflicts with me, and, especially, if they were to overpower me and have me in their grasp. I would also consider it terribly unjust if I was remembered as a weakling.
Do you believe in fate and/or the influence of the stars (ie. astrology)?:
No. It is a fun passtime, reading it, but it has never proved quite true.
You learn of a deadly plot being hatched against someone you know. However, you also find out that the lead plotter knows that you know about it. What do you do? Do you tell and thus try to help the person in danger and risk your own life? Or, do you seek the side of the plotter to try and save yourself from harm?:

That depends. If the plot is being hatched against, say, an acquaintance I dislike, I will hardly cared and do nothing. If it's against my enemy, I will GLALDY help the plotter. If it is against someone I am indifferent towards...it would depend on the plotter's attitude.

If he dared to try coercing me, my pride would have me retorting right back, even if it would bring me into peril. I would also make certain he was disposed of. If he begged me, and had me see how I would profit from aiding him, I would help him-if I did not see any profit there, I would expose him/dispose of him(depends on what my position in the scenario is).

If it was someone that mattered to me the plot was being hatched against, the plotter would not live long enough to do aything-or he would be exposed by me, even if it meant my last, dying breath.

Anything else you think we should know?:
[Optional!] Feel free to give us a brief description of yourself or a picture (image or URL):

I can see lot of Livia in your answers, but for some reason, I don't think it would be the best choice. Despite everything, my first impression after reading all your strengths and weaknesses was Agrippina (the Elder) and also the rest of your replies are in accordance with the impression she left in me. Proud, outspoken, fierce-tempered, fighter, vengeful, your love for the family... hate for Tiberius. :D ;)
Also, your pictures are screaming Messalina to me... but the appearance is the topic of another application. Anyway, you are very pretty. :)

I agree with dearkiki's reasoning, I also see Agrippina the Elder. You have that same passion, intelligence and unabashed hatred for Tiberius.
