*Note: These are simply suggestions and pointers from how I played him. The RPer/Actor has their own interpretation or any and all characters in these "How To Play ___" posts.*
Suzaku Kururugi belongs to the anime "Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion" and "Code Geass: R2", and to the author.

Ahh, Suzu-kun. This is a somewhat difficult character to play, mostly because he has many "ifs" "ands" or "buts". Though on the one hand Suzaku is a high school student with the best manners (because of his lineage as the prime ministers' son), he is also a Knight of Seven, the Lancelot Pilot, and later, Zero and the Knight of Zero. He wears many masks, and he is also very passionate at times, not to mention being "cursed" with the "will to live" from the order Lelouch gave him, though one of the parts of knowing his character is being able to understand that it is seldom seen after Lelouch "dies". (In theory, he may not have.)
The way I played Suzaku was how a person should probably play any proper gentleman, but you must remember, Suzaku is a high school student and he is often flustered by certain things, but overall loves to have fun. Lelouch is the serious friend. Suzaku is almost the "Naruto" to Lelouch's "Sasuke". (Pardon the Naruto reference) When interacting with Lelouch, Suzaku is more friendly and less formal- at least, while no one else is around. Suzaku can be incredibly serious and somewhat scary, to the point where you forget that he is technically a "high school student". Keep that in mind.
In the end, I ended up giving Suzaku a "cute" sort of vibe when he was friendly, and it suited him just fine as long as I didn't make him TOO cute. DX However, keep in mind that when Suzaku is being "Gentlemanly" he doesn't use suffixes; he has accepted the Brittanian rule, so he uses "Miss ____" or "Mr ___" or "Sir" instead, especially when talking to higher ranked officers.
Remember that Suzaku also pilots a Knightmare, especially that Knightmare's name, Lancelot!

The lovable Pervy Sage, JIRAIYA FROM NARUTO! *claps*
For Jiraiya, I didn't actually PLAN to play him. It just...came up. XD AND IT WAS SO FUN.
*Note: This is simply how I played him and how I succeeded in interpreting certain areas of his personality myself. An RPer/Actor will interpret a character differently depending on what kind of person they are.*

Jiraiya of the Sannin is a PERVERT. He enjoyed peeping in the ladies' hot springs on occasion, even though he was also playing a dual "teacher" role. While in his "Teacher" mode, he wasn't the least bit perverted, but if he was, he always put his sensei-ship first. That's the deal with Jiraiya. Balance. While he has that "ero" in him, he's also a Sannin, a very skilled and intelligent shinobi and sensei, so he isn't just a perverted old man all of the time. The balance is usually the downfall for RPers when it comes to Jiraiya.
His speech is usually that of a mature person, but when it comes to the ladies or gathering research- sometimes, even with Tsunade- it switches from "No, I didn't think it was possible. I'll have to update you on my findings of Orochimaru later, Kakashi." to "BE QUIET! I'm gathering very important research. *nosebleed drips down his chin*" or even "OH HO HO, NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!
Another note: Jiraiya may be a pervert, but he's not a pedophile. He would never hit on young girls (and certainly not young boys, or any males in general). Also, there are times when he pushes aside his pervertness and becomes a man people can look up to. A hero. *small smile*that was a pun 8D
THERE IS A TRANSITION! XD

If anyone would like me to give advice on certain characters that I have played (just ask for Charries) just ask in the comment box! If I've never played them, I will try to find someone who has! *has a lot of RPer friends* XD
HOPE THIS HELPED!
Jiraiya: You know, that's not a bad picture of me up top, but...maybe you should've shown a little more...skin? You know, for the ladies? This old man's still got it, ya know. ;]
Hime: Go back into your cave, Hermit.
