Haha oh man I can't tell if you're bring sarcastic or not...

Hmm ok, so what if he talks in an extremely proper way, doesn't have friends his own age and takes his job seriously as if its a lifelong career. Eventually he might run the business himself if the boss leaves, and he's often the most sceptical about new or illogical ideas and trying new things. He barely appears to have any emotional investment in people, but is fully focused on doing the best at his job.
OuO?

I'm no good at character profiles like this, but how about
"Blondie" Matthews. Nice generic/common last name, we never, never have to say his first name. He's either called Blondie or Matthews, depending on the person and situation.

He'll stand taller than the boss (because boys are always taller than girls, no matter what), but not as tall as the stooped Charlie. I'm imagining him basically as Nat from MCL, maybe with blue eyes, maybe with some muscle definition, maybe not visible, because his regular attire is a long sleeved, white, button-down, collared shirt. And slacks. Nothing too fancy, but not your regular high-school attire either.
I want to put him at 19 or 20, recently out of highschool, maybe starting university, maybe not, but about that age. Actually, not. Not starting uni.
Passtimes include martial arts, which accounts for his musculature.

And at this time, I will point out that previously I had imagined "Charlie" as the glasses character, a little older, having a "discrete" relationship with the Boss. Pokes fun at other people, is never really serious and sort of lazy, but can serious the fuck up if need be. Compare: Kyoya.

Blondie is more-serious in the first place, but is kind of goofy and silly and sweet, where Charlie is more sarcastic.

These are my headcanons. I'd like to salvage as much 'em as I can. Help me reconcile?

I like it!

I can see Charlie and the boss having a really discrete thing going on, and sarcastic characters always make me happy. Blondie not actually having a name after all this time seems exceedingly appropriate, and it makes sense that he's a little more goofy in general, even if he's serious about the job, because until protagonist joined, he might have been the youngest one in the company. Its important to have a sweet.character around, so I like that c:

The way we are going to express all of this Is through dialogue anyway, so as long as we have a general direction and boundaries making one character different from another, they might end up developing on their own

prolly more like they only have fingers when it's convenient.

...Hm... Maybe I'll go wiki the xXxHolic characters to try to figure out what you mean, then?

From Wiki:
"Yūko Ichihara

Yūko Ichihara (壱原 侑子 Ichihara Yūko?) is a woman who runs a shop that deals in granting wishes in exchange for something of equal value to the wish; sometimes this is referred to as a soul. She can take anything from a precious object to abstract concepts, such as love and luck in exchange. She usually displays an immature and free-spirited attitude, drinking saké at all hours of the day and forcing difficult tasks upon Watanuki. While dealing with customers or giving Watanuki advice, she is much more stern and offers cryptic messages to warn him and others of impending danger. She constantly speaks of inevitability and how nothing is a coincidence."

Well then. Uh. So she's kinda a hooligan and gives everyone difficult tasks or cryptic annoying messages but beneath her carefree exterior she actually has a solid and serious understanding of the world?

Yes.

I went to wikipedia last night, and only saw the first part... otherwise I would have copied it into the thread here.

I don't know, apparently my reading comprehension has gone to shit.

Heheh, too many late nights ~
Well, that sounds like an amusing character concept, and would definitely excuse the random hiring of strangers and missions to concerts or theme parks. The dynamic between her and.Charlie will be interesting, too. He would respect her, but her methods would probably get on his nerves. Seems like a symbiotic couple.

I wouldn't want her to be a copy though.
Perhaps trade being cryptic with being obsessed with 'all the beautiful blossoms of romance, each one precious and full of potential ~"
Mind you, that sort of airy fairy talk could have underlying meaning and be.cryptic as well =w=

May cut extraneous characters.

Do you want me to put up an RPing subforum or something?

Is that enthusiasm 'eh' or curiousity 'eh' or just one big long sigh 'eh' that means I've hurt your headcanon? I can't tell your tone xD

And hm...no, we probably don't need roleplaying here. I'll just end up getting distracted...

It was an, "Ehhh..." as in I don't really want to speak my mind on them, also you're hurting my headcanon.

That guy is way too well-dressed for Your Charlie.
The Boss (has green hair wut) is dressed like a kid (I'm thinking more businesswoman, that suit thing with the straight skirt?).
Blondie is made of dumbs. My poor Blondie! TT^TT

Blondie is like....pure dumbs, I swear. I crack up laughing every time I see that picture.
He's obviously not going to look like that, I just couldn't help myself xD

*shrug* you never specified how the boss dresses or any of her physical characteristics, so I made them up. What colour hair/skin/eyes SHOULD she have?
You're right about the Charlie thing, I tried to merge your idea about the pencil pusher with awkward lanky guy but it turned out all wrong. Once again I blame the princess maker!

I know it might seem like fussing over details, but when we do find an artist, they're going to need to know what we do (and dont) want

Hey, remember all the bitching I've done about "wah, we need less-nuanced characters!" and "wah, they should be more flat and stereotypical!"
I just figured out why:
We need to present them strongly at first, much in the same way as the Ghosts, because we don't know which characters will become Main characters-- or, we don't know which story path the reader will take.
Characters who aren't in the main story path can stay strong, fairly one-dimensional in personality, and characters who are in the main story of the chosen path, can be detailed and examined and polished and everything else.

Basically, the characters who aren't the focus of a current arc won't show up as much in that arc, so need to leave a strong impression with the reader.

Also, I sketched out some things last night-- of course, only now do I realize that they really don't look like anything. Neutral

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/93787058/2013-07-10-004631.jpg

But... they may help me explain my concept of the characters a little bit better: The Boss wears a nondescript, grey business suit, and likely-as-not, pearls. Probably also understated earrings, and high heels. Her specs shouldn't make her look old, only bookish. She's not particularly fat or overweight, but she has wide-set hips. She's in her mid-to-late 30's.

Charlie, conversely, may even only be twenty years old, but he doesn't wear it so well. He's a horrible, chronic slouch. When I think of this guy, I think of him wearing a beige/mustard/tan sweater over a button-down shirt, probably black slacks, and trainers. The shirt collar and bottom peek out of the sweater. His hair may or may not be as long (or longer) than what I pencil-vomitted onto him there.

Also what may be of use:
Boss: Wise, Charismatic, Knowing
Charlie: Intelligent, Sarcastic, Clever
Blondie: Courageous, Spirited, "Heart-thinking"
