Things you should know about your characters

These are what I would consider the most basic, bare-bones questions of your character creation.


  • what would completely break your character?

  • what was the best thing in your character’s life?

  • what was the worst thing in your character’s life?

  • what is your character afraid of?

  • what seemingly insignificant memories tuck with your character?

  • does your character work so that they can support their hobbies or use their hobbies as a way of filling up the time they aren’t working?

  • what is your character reluctant to tell people?

  • how many friends does your character have?

  • how many friends does your character want/what do they value about friendship?

  • is your character lonely? what does he do to not be?

  • what would your character make a scene in public about?

  • what would your character give their life for?

  • what are your character’s major flaws?

  • what does your character pretend or try to care about?

  • how does the image of your character they try to project differ from the image they actually project?
