I'm creating characters at the moment and I'm quite jealous of all these threads talking about 'their character said this, wanted that' etc. The closest I've ever come to making my characters real was using one to practice writing dialogue and by the time I finished I realised that my intended Hero/ Hero's love interest character likes being an evil bizznatch instead. (she's accusing and bullying a servant girl for stealing her favourite silver medallion when the defiant servant slaps her. So she orders her hand maiden to hold the girl while she retrieves a large pair of shearers and cuts off four of the servants fingers. My character then orders the hand maiden to take the girl away and places the bloody objects into a collection of fingers housed in a small box in her dresser. Which turns out is sitting next to a rather suspicious looking silver medallion.) but as I said I was only practicing dialogue. Apart from that I want my characters to hang out with me and cant get the bond happening. So my question is, What are your bonding rituals for your characters? Assuming you were asked to create a brand new character right now.
