Character Background Questionaire
These elements are just suggested springboards. You can answer some of them or all of them as well as continue with details beyond the ones I fish for. The more elements you flesh out the easier it will be to fall into a character without a forced RP time feeling.
I. Physical Traits
– Basic run down of your looks, please include height and weight.
– What race specific features do you have, and how are they unique to you?
– What non-race specific distinguishing features do you have? i.e scars, birthmarks, bubblegum pink dyed hair, etc.
II. Personality Traits
– A barkeep places a glass in front of you, is it half full? Half empty? Completely full, it is just full of two separate elements? Neither as it is only 48.9% full? * Chug * Doesn’t matter, it is empty now?
– What pet peeves does your character have? How do they general respond when confronted with them?
– What habits does you character have? Do they disrupt their everyday life? Are they socially acceptable?
