One of the things I've always tried to do with Megan is to keep her as true to the real me as possible. Or at least as true as a five foot tall anthropomorphic rabbit can be, anyway. However, she is, to state the obvious, a rabbit, and so her dietary choices can't really be said to mirror my own in every respect. The main difference is that I do eat meat, while Megan does not. By the rules I've established for the rabbits of my little world, she cannot or she'll get sick. She can, however, eat just about anything else she pleases. (Don't ask me how that works, though!) Also, she eats flowers, while I normally don't. Neither she nor I are fond of carrots, though I don't have quite such a strong aversion to them as Megan does.
So why am I boring you guys with this? Because I'm curious: Does your character's dietary choices mirror your own? Or are there things they will not, or cannot, eat that you do? Did the dietary habits of your character's species in the real world (or in generally accepted canon, for those of you whose characters are of a fictional species) influence your choosing that species at all?
