Beautiful People - Joulrai

I saw this on a friend's blog, and I though I'd take a break from studying to try it out. I figure that it's a fun way to flesh out some characters that I have floating around in my head. I'd like to introduce everyone to my character Joulrai of Legendary Fame (because obviously if a person becomes legendary a lot of people will name their children after him, and a few more famous people will inevitably share his name). Joulrai becomes the second king of a united Kelmair (the mythical world that I have created. I'll probably post some on that at a later date) and is famous for the adventures that he went on with the first great king - Alekshua - during his five year exile. I don't really have a picture of him, because he's mostly not human. I could draw one I suppose, but not right now. To the questions then!

1. What is their favorite type of shoe?
Joul is incredibly vain. He, of course, being a man, wants his shoes to be practical, but they also better look better than everyone else's. He likes gold filigree designs and boots that go higher on the leg. They protect his legs from harm and they look fantastic.
2. Do they journal?
He doesn't need to, he has other people writing down everything he's ever done. It's one of the perks of being a king. He's not big in to feelings, though. He would certainly never write down his feelings. That's not manly at all!
3. What's their favorite animal?
I haven't really created animals yet. I'm sure that Joul has some kind of red panda/lemur looking thing that sits on his shoulder and does funny things.
4. What does their average day look like?
There is no average day in the life of a king, but mostly they involve paperwork, meetings, and traveling to different parts of the kingdom. Also no adventure. Thrilling :<
5. Night owl, or morning person? (Optional: What time do they normally wake up, and go to bed?)
Night Owl. If he had his way he would wake up in the late afternoon and go to sleep in the early morning. Since he does not have his way he is forced to wake up at abominable hours and is not allowed to sleep until late.
6. Do they have a sweet tooth?
Not really, at all.
7. What colors are their bedroom?
The walls don't really have any color (paint doesn't really exist to be put on people's walls), but it is filled with incredibly ornate tapestries and bed hangings. Blue is everywhere and silver and gold.
8. Can they cook?
Surprisingly, yes. Spending fives years on the road in exile will teach one an incredible range of skills. He cannot cook very well, however, and is mostly limited to skinning and roasting small game on a spit, unseasoned. Whatever works.
9. What is their favorite household chore?
Chores? What are those? We have people for those. (It may be said that he does groom his own horse, but that's not a chore. his horse is his friend).
10. Favorite kind of tea?
Tea doesn't exist here, but booze still does. He enjoys hard liquor when he can get it. People in court care way too much about their monarch's image, but he happens to believe that he in incredibly charming when intoxicated.
