Developing a Character's Personality

Post by Admin Jules on Sat Nov 26, 2016 11:01 am

Personality is huge in developing a character as it effects how the character will act or react in a situation. That being said characters are like people in the story so they all have their unique way of responding to events. No person is the same so no character should be the same. To achieve this one first of how they want their character to be seen as. Is he or she the big tough guy or a shy and quiet book worm who would prefer to stick to themself?

Next you need to figure out how their background effected them. Keep in mind that everyone will react differently in different situations. For example a character who has been abandoned by their parents or someone close to them will act differently to losing a close friend then someone who has not been abandoned.

Does your character have a mask? How does your character act when he is by his self and is it different then with others. If so how is it different? An example of this maybe a bully may act like a good student in front of a teacher. Or a character may act like he doesn't care what others think when they really do care what others think of them.

What are your character's flaws? Lets face it no human is perfect so therefore no character should be perfect. Flaws may seem bad though they really help with making a character unique and prove that they are not perfect.

Below are a couple links for helping develop your character's personality more indepth.
