Character theme songs.

Varies from person to person. I try to go between the lyrics and general tone of the song itself going between either the character's view and their past. An example from what Xara put forth for Naheal:

Dream - Imagine Dragons

That's a lyric video, but here's the lyrics for reference:

In the dark

And I’m right on the middle mark

I’m just in the tier of everything that rides below the surface

And I watch from a distance seventeen

And I’m short of the others dreams of being golden and on top

It’s not what you painted in my head

There’s so much there instead of all the colors that I saw

We all are living in a dream,

But life ain’t what it seems

Oh everything’s a mess

And all these sorrows I have seen

They lead me to believe

That everything’s a mess

But I wanna dream

I wanna dream

Leave me to dream

In the eyes

Of a teenage crystallized

Oh the prettiest of lights that hang the hallways of the home

And the cries from the strangers out at night

They don’t keep us up at night

We have the curtains drawn and closed

We all are living in a dream,

But life ain’t what it seems

Oh everything’s a mess

And all these sorrows I have seen

They lead me to believe

That everything’s a mess

But I wanna dream

I wanna dream

Leave me to dream

I know all your reasons

To keep me from seeing

Everything is actually a mess

But now I am leaving

All of us were only dreaming

Everything is actually a mess

We all are living in a dream

But life ain’t what it seems

Oh everything’s a mess

And all these sorrows I have seen

They lead me to believe

That everything’s a mess

But I wanna dream

I wanna dream

Leave me to dream

I wanna dream

I wanna dream

Leave me to dream

Those lyrics combined with the pleading tone from the music itself makes for a good way to show off the tone of said character.

For me, I search through a genre that seems to fit the character well, then I look around until I find a song whose lyrics reflect the soul of the character really well. It can take a long time, but sometimes I get lucky and run across something inspiring very quickly.

For Cerryan, in his current arc:

I like this! I listened to it while writing up the last part of Bad Dreams!

I like this for Cerryan right now, mostly because of the amusing parallels between the music video and what he was dealing with during that time:

Narya:

And all the kids cried out "Please stop you're scaring me"

I can't help this awful energy

Goddamn right you should be scared of me

Who is in control?

"...I'm not Azeroth's sweetheart!"~ I have had fun imagining Sky running around the house with drink in hand, dancing, and belting out this tune in movie montage fashion. Song suits her fairly well I think as well. Hehe
