Character Profilingby Neoshaman and Rio
Creating a character is easy but creating a believable one who the player can empathize with and relate to is a bit more complicated. To resolve this, the most obvious answer is to create a character profile. Profiles come in handy, allowing you to lay the foundations of a character with depth that you can easily reference and guide your story. For example, the character of the person dictates how he or she will act in certain situations.
Anyways, here is a Text Document (1KB) and a Word document (23KB) where you can create your character in depth by listing their personality and other attrubutes in detail. If your character does not have an attribute in a certain category such as magical, just leave it blank, type "none", or erase it from the profile list. Remember: just because it's listed doesn't mean your character has to have it.
