The "Get to Know your Character" game is something I came up with when I started writing fanfictions. I was always worried about characterization, especially when I was using Canon characters, so I decided to list their personalities, quirks, fears, etc. The more defined the character was the easier it was to write them. Eventually the game became a lot of fun, and I've found it's just as useful when RPing.
The game is easy. All you do is fill out the chart below, and then post. Sometimes you even learn things about your character you didn't know, and it helps others gain a better understanding of your characters as well. And if your trying to develop a personality for a new character, this is definitely helpful.
Sheet (just copy and paste) -
- Family (if any):
- Backstory (if any):
- Illness (if any):
- Mate/Love interest (if any):
- Closest to:
- Biggest fear:
- What inspired his/her name:
- If he/she was in a movie/cartoon/TV show, what character would they be:
- Do you consider him/her a villain, hero, or somewhere in between:
- What would be his/her theme song?
*Also, I am aware that this typically belongs in the 'answers' category, but I posted it here so that whenever we create new character, we are not limited to only one post. Have fun!
