About This Quiz

It seems that you are intent on causing yourself discomfort and sadness, so we won't delay your suffering any longer. While being matched up with Count Olaf or one of the Baudelaire children may prove to be helpful in understanding yourself better, we're sure that there are other, less sadistic ways that you might uncover these mysteries.

If you insist on continuing, perhaps you are the kind of person who always seems to come up with a creative solution to the problems you face. If so, you might just be a good fit for Violet, especially if you also tend to do something with your hair when you're thinking very deeply.

On the other hand, perhaps you're the kind of person who enjoys cooking and speaks in a way that only a few people can understand. If you're also known for your physical strength and your youthful optimism, it seems that Sunny Baudelaire could be your match.

Maybe you love to read books, and you wear glasses. If you've learned to be a bit pessimistic in your view of things, but you're open to the possibility that love might actually find its way to you, Klaus might be just right.

It's not out of the question that you could be paired with Count Olaf, but we hope you'll be spared that disturbing revelation.
