Personality
The exact origins of Serbia are rather blurred, but there is no doubt that he’s been around for a very long time. As a child, he had a lot of optimism and energy even though things weren’t always easy. One of the first events in his life was being seized by the Byzantine Empire. While a notable influence, Serbia from the very beginning was someone who loved to be the boss over himself. He fought hard to then establish himself as the Serbian Kingdom in 1217. Back then, Serbia was also a devoted older brother figure to others, notably Kosovo. They were very close, and if anyone dared hurt her, Serbia would get back at them. Even though those early centuries were crazy and all over the place, Serbia was able to make good friends with most of those around him – and one of his biggest regrets was how history took many of those friendships and made turns for the worst.

It was around the years of the Ottoman Empire that changed a lot of Serbia’s outlook on life. The wars he lost were also the wars in which he saw himself and those who mattered the most to him suffer and it killed him so much inside to see that. Serbia has since become a lot more cynical than he was previously, and he became damn good at holding a grudge against certain people. He also began to train much, much harder, just so he and those precious to him won’t suffer again. It was wishful thinking, but during his time in the Ottoman Empire, it became his obsession whenever he was able to have time to himself.

To those that knew Serbia well before the Ottoman Empire arrived would have noticed the change. Unfortunately, this negative change took over Serbia for many years and he found it really hard to go back to his original self. It did return eventually, when he was able to fight and be free of the Ottomans and he began to recollect himself and the person he truly is.

And Serbia’s true self is someone who is extremely extroverted, chatty, fun and a fiercely loyal friend. He becomes miserable when he’s left alone by himself, only really comfortable if someone’s with him. Perhaps that’s why he treasures his friends and holds them dear. If you manage to befriend this guy, you’ll have to do a lot to really piss him off. Serbia is very attached to his closest friends and he loves to be at the centre of the social circle. He loves to tell jokes and good naturedly tease others and do all sorts of activities with his friends. Being the energetic and physical type of guy that he is, Serbia will often get his friends involved in something to do outdoors, or some kind of indoor sport. Friends and family are valued very strongly.

Sport is one of Serbia’s passion, which started from an early age. He hates to sit still and he gets a lot of satisfaction from it. Keeping healthy and fit is important to him, and he thinks it makes his body look damn good. His favourite sports are Waterpolo, Basketball and Tennis (especially if it’s doubles!) and because of this, he’s developed an athletic body, especially for swimming. His height helps him a lot in basketball too, and he was the likely driving force behind Yugoslavia in basketball competitions – and yes, they did very well! Serbia’s a natural competitor and when he has a goal in mind, he has to go for it or he knows he’ll regret it. Sometimes his ‘competitions’ are extremely petty, but it’s probably better he has something to do – he really hates being bored!

Despite being a very physical kind of guy, Serbia is actually pretty intelligent and in touch of with his emotions. He may not be intelligent in terms of science and maths and all that stuff, but he’s got a natural cunning streak that has seen him through many events in history and has helped win him battles and solve problems. If only others were more aware of his cunning. He hates it when people act as though they’re more intelligent than he is, even when he knows it’s true.

The truth is that his confidence levels aren’t as high as he makes them out to be. For many centuries he has hated a lot of things – what happened to him, what he could have done better, he himself as a person, etc. He’s an incredibly vulnerable and easily hurt person, but he’d rather shoot himself than let other know that. Very few have seen him at his absolute lowest and they may be the only ones who ever will. When upset, Serbia tends to make his temper flare in an attempt to sound stronger and harsher than what he’s actually feeling. He’s got a short temper to disguise his real emotional wounds that he gets from time to time. His other flaw when it comes to his emotions is the fact that he can be incredibly stubborn. It’s for this reason that Serbia can rub others the wrong way very easily, unless of course, you’re a friend of his. If you’re a friend of Serbia’s, he tries very, very hard to show the finer points of his personality.

While not many know this, Serbia actually enjoys cooking. It’s actually considered a good thing if all members of the family can cook well, so he learned rather quickly. His cuisine has a lot of various influences and he enjoys it, but sometimes he’s rather envious of the food other countries have. He’s aware that he’s not considered as ‘fancy’ as other countries in Europe when it comes to cuisine, the arts, etc. Someday he’d love to be let into the EU, but he hasn’t had the great succession with that. It is something he wishes to work towards though – he hates it when he wants to join in something and he’s not being allowed to. That’s his extrovert traits shining through.

However, it’s because of the way he is that he does have a strong sense of leadership and rallying people onto his side. He does enjoy bossing others around, but it’s this traits that show he’s someone who can get things done. Serbia’s a very pro-active guy who takes a lot of initiative. He’s a fast thinker and recognising what there is for him to work with. While he may not always like the person, he is able to recognise the good and bad points in another person, be it their personality traits, what they are good or bad at, what they can bring to the table, etc. Perhaps he is the one who ought to be turned to when a zombie apocalypse breaks out?

Overall, Serbia is an extroverted guy who is able to get himself noticed and stick in people’s minds. To some he seems stubborn, quick-tempered and not the ideal guy to be with, but to others, he is one of the best friends they could ever have. He can be pretty cynical and snarky with others, but he can also be full of fun and energy.


Foreign Relations (WIP)
(yes there is a shitload of relations. I thought it would be better to have all of them for now and gradually delete the ones that seem less significant. It is true however, that Serbia is probably one of the main social butterflies of the Balkans, omfg. This dude gets around?)

Mergawsh your OCs are all so beautiful~! Gah I wish mine can reach your OCs level of coolness! > v < I like Serbia best methinks~! o w o

Also, would it be okay if my Vojvodina OC shared the same last name with your Serbia OC? If not that's fine, just thought I'd ask before I did anything! > w <

awww thanks so much dearie ;u; tbh serbia is trying to reach main status ahaha

ngl it would be interesting if they had the same surname. You see, my Kosovo OC prior to her independence, she had the same surname as my Serbia as well, so in a way that would allow your Vojvodina OC to slot in with my baes rather nicely and the headcanons I have surrounding 'em. sob i've always wanted a vojvodina oc to play around with ngl??

You are very welcome~! u w u I hope he becomes your main because he is freakin' gorgeous. And hella perfect.

Ahhh okie~! :3 I am glad that I can do that yay~! > v < I was going to use a different surname, but then I remembered your Serbia OC and I was like: "I wonder if they could have the same surname?" Ooo yay, he can fit in with your lovely little OCs~! Omg I would be so excited I would die if he was included in their little group. Well I am finishing up the info now and hope to have the WIP of his character design done by tonight at least, at most his full character up. > v < If you ever want to use him for anything lemme know, I would be flattered if you did. u w u

thanks, though my other aph muses aren't quite so flattered, rofl. srsly let this year old comic explain why good going you guys

Well, you could pick any surname that could fit, it's not like my Serbia's the canon for everyone to go by, he's only my personal canon to go by, y'know? tbh the real reason i want a good vojvodina is if i ever go ahead and do a historical doujinshi based on the balkans, i was thinking of making either serbia or kosovo the central character for it, either way they'd be at the centre and thus vojvodina is incredibly important as well. o3o I'm not finalising which OCs I'd use other than my own obviously, but it's a thought I don't mind putting out there.

Omg I love that comic! xD It is too perfect. I could see Serbia doing that tbh. xD 

Yes I understood as much, I just thought it might be cool y'know so I thought I'd summon up the courage and ask. ^^ I hope to hell my Vojvodina OC is accurate for the amount of research I am doing he better be! And gah I still wish you could do that! I'd be so on board with that project, I would be cheering ya on the whole way because I am sure you could make it hella awesome~! > w <

AND THE PROBLEM IS SERBIA CONTINUING TO DO THAT TO MY MUSES IF HE BECOMES THE NEW MAIN atm philippines has always kinda been my first and foremost and she is the most researched of them all, i'd feel guilty pushing her aside, welp

No worries, ask me whatever you like tbh? BUT YES BALKANS NEED MORE HISTORY STORIES TOLD ABOUT THEM, THEY'RE THE OFTEN IGNORED PART OF EUROPE AND IT MAKES MEL SAD UFGSIUJGHFLDKJJ i have a lot of balkans feelings

Ahahah! xD Bad Serbia, stop annoying Melonstyle's muses! Yes, I know those feeling sometimes. Usually, I'll create a character I've put lots of effort into first, then create a character I like more second! xD I don't know why that happens....well either way I think Philippines is rather pretty and her design is lovely too. o w o 

Ah okay! I have one more question then: for Vojvodina's international relations, would it be better if I made them the same as Serbia's as he is part of Serbia after all? YES THEY DO! I WILL AGREE WITH YOU THERE! Ahaha you don't have rage, you just have Balkan feelings. xD
