What is an Odd Lawyer? 049

(NOTE: THIS CHARACTER DOESEN'T HAVE TO BE A LAWYER)

How is this guy trusted with anything?

Some characters have pervasive or extremely noticeable personality quirks, but somehow remain faithfully employed because they are just that good at what they do. Coworkers, superiors, and friends are willing to overlook certain informalities because of this (e.g., a hypothetical highly successful lawyer who happens to wear fuzzy pink bunny ears during all his cases) so long as they get the job done and cause a minimal amount of intentional problems. This is a cost/benefit ordeal: if they weren't so good at their job or their quirks were too obstructive an employer would consider them a necessary sacrifice for sanity.

Much like a Ditzy Genius it is a strange mixture of brilliant and bizarre, the unexpected quirks only tend to bother new characters who don't know them well. Their quirks don't seem to be harmful to his success. The Insufferable Genius might insist everyone address him as "sir" or "Dr. Smith". The Bunny-Ears Lawyer might not answer unless addressed as "Grand Duchess Abigail Chester Wilson Snapdragon Lemmywinks Brian Brain McFisticuffs the Negative 10th." There are lots of Odd Lawyers out there, as the length of this page can atest, mainly because having the character be an expert allows the writers to plausibly put them in any situation they want while the quirks are to make the characters interesting and unique, and there is some Real Life people who actually behave like this. Authorities in educational or professional environments will sometimes ignore quirks, especially if they don't have any relevance to the degree or job at hand. While you're unlikely to see something as extreme as a bunny ears-wearing lawyer, you will find plenty of examples of people who remain employed despite their quirks.

I LOVE the QUIRKY. I agree with your arguement if one is extremely useful or talented many of one quirks are ignored or even embrassed

Great article
