I think it's safe to assume that I'm not the only one who occasionally struggles with creating realistic, well-developed characters. ;) Well, I was thinking this morning about how it's easier to develop a character once you know more about them, even (sometimes especially!) little things like what they eat for breakfast or their favourite band.

So, I filled out a bunch of 'profiles' for some of my characters, in hopes of getting to know them better. Something like this ...

Name:
Gender:
Age:
Race/Ethnicity:
Height:
Weight:
Build:
Complexion:
Eyes:
Hair:
Example of clothing: (what they might be wearing on any given day)
Any siblings:
Hobbies:
Biggest character flaw:
Personality:
Talents/skills:
Weaknesses:
QUESTIONS:
1. Do they wear any makeup? If so, describe their usual routine.
2. What would they have in their pocket right now?
3. Any pets?
4. What is their relationship with their parents? (And siblings, if they have any.)
5. How do they see themselves?
6. Favourite foods?
7. What do they like and dislike about themselves?
8. Taste in music?
9. Their idea of a fun friday night?
10. How are they when it comes to relationships?

And so on & so forth. Feel free to add your own questions to the list! :)

Also, I'm not sure if this belongs in the writing activities forum, since people can reply with a filled-out profile for their character(s)?
everything i loved
became everything i lost.

From "Country Boy" - this is the main character, Jack. I may also do one for Adele, later, but for now I'll just do this. :)

Name: Jack Allen
Gender: male
Age: 36
Race/Ethnicity: white
Height: 5'11
Weight: about 200 pounds, but he doesn't generally step on a scale
Build: athletic
Complexion: clear skin, usually somewhat tanned because he's outdoors a lot
Eyes: grey
Hair: light ash brown, cut short but not a buzz-cut
Example of clothing: (what they might be wearing on any given day) jeans, t-shirt, work boots, white cowboy hat
Any siblings: one younger brother named Todd
Hobbies: Jack likes to fix up cars, the more broken-down, the better. He does work at a mechanic's now, but mostly it's just oil changes and stuff, which is just routine and kind of dull.
Biggest character flaw: Jack has a difficult time saying what's on his mind or what he's feeling, which means he often just doesn't say anything when he probably should
Personality: Reserved, reasonably laid-back if he's in familiar territory and comfortable but otherwise generally just quiet. Not particularly social, but does not dislike people or company - he just isn't outgoing, so if there's no one around that he knows, he'll sit by himself. Comfortable being by himself. Generally courteous, polite, and gentlemanly towards women, though with men he's just one of the guys - not rowdy or anything (except sometimes with his brother and nephews) but willing to talk sports, swear a bit, etc.
Talents/skills: Good with fixing cars, was a good bull-rider/calf-roper&wrestler in his days in rodeo. Good rider.

QUESTIONS:

1. Do they wear any makeup? If so, describe their usual routine.
No make-up. He's not goth, emo, scene, in theater or dance, on television, a clown, or...involved in any other scenarios in which I imagine guys would wear make-up.
2. What would they have in their pocket right now?
Keys to his Taurus and his wallet would usually be it.
3. Any pets?
He has a blue pointer named Zeus.
4. What is their relationship with their parents? (And siblings, if they have any.)
Tense. He and his dad do not get along, though they make attempts at polite conversation when other people are around. His mother is better but she tends to go along with his dad. His relationship with his brother is good.
5. How do they see themselves?
He wishes he was, well, braver - he wishes he could say the things he needs to say, and right now he's not entirely sure why he is where he is or how his life ended up the way it is right now.
6. Favourite foods?
Loves meatloaf and mashed potatoes and also, for some odd reason, crab Rangoon.
7. Taste in music?
Likes classic rock, light rock, and country.
8. Their idea of a fun Friday night?
He usually goes to the bar, sits and drinks. Other options are watching sports or taking a walk.
9. How are they when it comes to relationships?
He's had a few long-lasting relationships with women but nothing he's been particularly serious about. Mostly he just keeps dating around. If a woman asks him on a date he'll say yes (if he's single), and sometimes they actually end up dating for a while; he only asks women out if he really likes them. At the moment he's single, but he's interested in someone.

Usually she ignores the skirt rule and wears a pair of comfortable jeens (not that stuff we have that you can't move in). She loves her boots, so she usually has a pair them on, but she dresses for comfort and she doesn't have much money so they are usually cheep lether boots.

Her parents did the best they could by them all (4 other siblings) and tried to get them an education and a good house, but they became criminals for doing that and ended up dying. It feel to Beth to take care of her siblings in the lower city when she was 12 and so she became mom. So very tence but loving.

You guys have some very interesting characters in the works here! Here is one of mine from my current fantasy series.


Name: Biddy Brennan
Gender: Female
Age: starts out at 16
Race/Ethnicity: Human: British, Scottish, French Non-human: Anjevin ethnic group of the Damadii-Heizet.
Height: 5'1"
Weight: 115ish lb.
Build: Small and thin build. Slight in every feature.
Complexion: Very pale. Would a tan kill her?
Eyes: Green-grey, small and round. Could probably tweeze her eyebrows.
Hair: Medium auburn, thick and wavy. Always keeps it in a braid that is poorly made. Messy bangs that sweep to the side.
Example of clothing: (what they might be wearing on any given day) Usually wears long sleeves and jeans; hardly ever shows arms or legs. Lots of flannel/plaid shirts and skinny jeans. Also has a nice collection of Bob Dylan and Indie Rock band clothing. Wears her father's locket- a cameo style with crimson fenghuang on it.
Any siblings: Older brother who's studying in Britain. Hasn't visited in two years.
Hobbies: Reading. Lots of reading, whether histories, myths, novels, etc. Always researching who knows what. When she's not in the library she's nowhere to be found.
Biggest character flaw: Vengeful. Burn her once and she is unlikely to forget it. She can also pass judgments too quickly on others based on their seeming viewpoints or intelligence.
Personality: Despite the above-mentioned, she is quite nice and usually soft-spoken. Can be socially awkward at times, mostly because she talks like she came straight out of an Austen or Bronte novel. Overly polite. Despite this, she can be sarcastic and funny around those she knows well. Loyal friend. Good student. However, if you insult those she cares about or her values, her voice won't be so soft and she will tell you exactly what she thinks.
Talents/skills: High pragmatic and well-read. In physical combat (as the Damadii-Heizet learn in school) she is fairly developed for her age, usually practicing past classtime. Very dedicated and motivated in her cause.
Weaknesses: Once again, she's vengeful. She passes judgments too quickly on some. She has the tendency to distance herself from her friends if under stress and tends to prize getting work done over sleeping.

QUESTIONS:
1. Do they wear any makeup? If so, describe their usual routine. nope, although it would do her some good to put on mascara or eyeliner every once in a while.
2. What would they have in their pocket right now? hmm. Packets of instant coffee ready to be brewed. No cell phone because cell phones tend not to work where she lives. A peculiar-looking wood object used for communication. A mini-notebook. Never know when you may come across a curious piece of knowledge!
3. Any pets? Yes, like all the students in her school, she possesses a animal like a mix between a cat and squirrel with webbed arms for gliding and swimming. Hers is black, cream, brown and red, and a bit chubby. It's loud and obnoxious.
4. What is their relationship with their parents? (And siblings, if they have any.) Only has mother who she visits during winter and summer breaks from school. Not very close to her; mother is emotionally distant and suffers from chronic depression and agoraphobia. Relationship with brother is also strained, as he has been equally distant and hardly ever returns home.
5. How do they see themselves? Biddy knows that she is a bit socially awkward, and is concious of the criticisms people have of her. She is amicable to everyone nonetheless, for what good did incivility ever do anyone? She accepts herself for who she is, and will not let the word of others tempt her away from this certainty.
6. Favourite foods? Coffee coffee coffee. She also has a bit of an Eastern palate. Taiwanese seawood soup, steamed rice, sushi, etc.
7. What do they like and dislike about themselves? She dislikes that she is socially awkward when uncomfortable. She also dislikes her hair- it's too bushy; and dislikes her mouth because it is just too small. What does she like about herself? Well, she's smart right? And she's very dedicated to whatever she takes on.
8. Taste in music? Human indie rock, Bob Dylan. There's also a curious flavor of indie and alternative that's come up in the American Damadii-Heizit state.
9. Their idea of a fun friday night? Mmmm. Coffee or another hot beverage and a good book, documentary, or movie. She also likes hanging out with her two good friends or her tutoring student at the center of her Damadii-Heizet city.
10. How are they when it comes to relationships? If she already knows the person well, she is very open and amicable, a good listener. If not, she can be awkward when nervous. If she's stressed, she also tends to isolate herself from others. Love relationships? Hasn't had one as of yet, but she dreams of some sweet intellectual sweeping her off her feet. Okay, not off her feet, but joining her in a balanced, equivocal relationship. 8P
