Character, trait etc suggestions for this year

Just because I always find this a fun topic. Name, Trait - prop, line of dialogue, technical

Jan Michaelson, Philanthropist - A pair of undies, "You said you would", underwater shot

Ali Jones, eccentric - a flat battery, "That's why I'm not doing that", reflected image

Danny/Dani Phillips, idealist - broken glass, "Is this yours?", star wipe (that's right, a star wipe!)

Billy Danson, passive agressive - screwdriver, "You said you'd do it", snorricam shot

Andy Brown, domineering - slippers, "Can you not do that please", POV

Cal Newton, argumentative - rubbish bin, "Yeah nah", dolly shot

Del Logan, crude - earphones, "Please stop touching that", ECU

Just a few to get things started :) Who else has some ideas?
