    Location:
    occasionally Oz , mainly Canada
    I usually don't fill these out any more when I create characters but ... what the heck, I'm bored - :)
    Here's my MC
    First Name: Finlay Greenfield - otherwise known as Finlay Green ( stage name ) and Fey ( his TV character's name )
    Hair: dyed platinum with a serpentine burn patch after an incident with rubbing alcohol and a lighter
    Middle Name: Jude? Lewis? Hadn't really thought of it
    Height: He's short - 5'1
    Age: The book starts 2 weeks after his 14 birthday
    Body Type: ? He's got a nice body - like a swimmers.
    Location: Lives in a dumpy section of L.A. until he lands a part in a TV series and is relocated to Northern Ontario Canada. There he lives in a repurposed ski lodge on a very large lot with a lot of sets.
    Powers (if present): he's got the power to frequently piss off adults.
    Eyes: luminous brown and can simultaneously be full of leave-me-alone wrath and needy love
    Handwriting: ?
    Nose: he picks it frequently
    Music Taste: whatever LP he can scavenge out of a dumpster
    Eyebrows: they're great for broods and scowls.
    Outfit: His outfits are bizarre - vintage corduroy blazers, ladies ankle boots, tight jeans, not-a-purse bags, ladies junk jewelry, children's undershirts. Kavado his director says he often looks like he fell ass-backwards through a thrift store. His fellow actors describe him as like an alien visitor who is trying to blend but hasn't quite sorted out the gender or cultural situation.
    Mouth: an apologetic smile. Rather sexy.
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): fourteen freckles.
    General attitude: bratty, he battles frequently with his mother for control over his life. But he's desperately lonely and uses his creativity to lure a director into becoming a reluctant father figure.
    Biggest Fear: not being recognized creatively
    Blood Type: ? it's not important to the story.
    Skin Color: vampire pale - his zits show up like neon lights.
    Other Remarks: ( story goals & personal goals ) - Finlay lusts, longs, yearns for Sodapop girl a commercial actress who slides down a straw into an enormous vat of soda. He also wants his creativity which is frequently shunned by his teachers and his mother to be recognized. His inner goals - are to make peace with his mother, and fill the gap his absent father left by making his volatile burnt out director his stand-in father. Both of which get sabotaged by his anger and creative arrogance.

    First Name: Aubert
    Hair: Short, buzzed, and dark. Very thick and a very dark brown, almost black.
    Middle Name: Baptiste
    Last Name: Benoit
    Height: 5'10"
    Age: Mid to late 20s? Anywhere between 26-28, I'm not really sure yet.
    Body Type: Quite lean and toned, not particularly muscular though. Pretty much average but leaning towards the thinner side.
    Location: The swamps of Louisiana. He lives in a large, dilapidated house with a lot of other people out in the bayou by a tiny town that's about an hour's drive from Baton Rouge.
    Powers (if present): None
    Eyes: Large and dark, typically squinting or frowning intensely for no particular reason.
    Handwriting: Scrawled but strangely neat.
    Nose: Kind of a weird small nose. Like a rabbit's.
    Music Taste: Country, his father was a country musician who died of drug overdose when Aubert was in his early teens.
    Eyebrows: Dark and bushy, usually frowning a lot.
    Outfit: Nothing special. Worn-out t-shirt, faded jeans, sunhat (he's a doctor, he's very preoccupied with making sure he doesn't get skin cancer), and probably barefoot. If he's working or just got home from work, ratty scrubs that probably smell like medicine and doctor's office lollipops.
    Mouth: Small, fairly full-lipped, typically pursed in disapproval.
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): None.
    General attitude: Very serious, quiet. He's typically pensive and thoughtful, but has a very mischievous side to him which comes out when drunk or during some kind of celebration. He's a doctor and he's constantly reminding people to put on sunscreen, don't smoke, don't put your feet on the table and get germs on it, etc., to the point where people are almost scared of doing bad things in front of him for fear of being berated.
    Biggest Fear: His clinic being closed down (he works at a small, local clinic in the middle of nowhere that's just barely funded by the government and he's constantly struggling to find people with a medical degree who actually want to work at tiny clinic way out in the swamps.)
    Blood Type: Not important to the story.
    Skin Color: Naturally quite pale, but tanned from years spent in the sun of the bayou when he was little.
    Other Remarks: When he was younger, his biggest goal was to get a college degree and get out of his tiny town in Louisiana, but after some traumatic incidents in his early life, his goals changed to he just wanted to stay and help out the poverty-ridden people of the swamp he grew up in. He comes from French Cajun origins and he grew up in a lot of poverty and was raised by his grandparents due to his traveling musician father, who tried to visit Aubert as much as he could while growing up. Aubert's not a main character, just a side character, but an extremely important one in the story.

    Although I never liked vampires, what you're writing sounds fun, and your character sounds just ideal. Good Luck!

    This is my main character for my fantasy novel - bear in mind there are essentially 15 main character but this one is the main POV

    First Name: Jorin
    Middle Name: None
    Last Name: Baeil
    Height: 5'8"
    Age: 42
    Hair: Short light brown
    Location: An inn in the poor quarter
    Body Type: Slight build but wiry
    Powers (if present): None
    Eyes: Dark
    Handwriting: Has the ability to copy any handwriting he sees
    Nose: Small
    Music Taste: Doesn't apply
    Eyebrows: Short and neat
    Outfit: Black shirt, black studded leather vest, black tunic with two baldrics criss-crossed, one holding a bastard sword the other holding a light crossbow both across his back and holding a number of daggers across the front, black belted trousers with 2 kukri and a hand crossbow attached, soft black leather boots, black cloak
    Mouth: Small
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present):
    General attitude: Cynical
    Biggest Fear: Being dependant on someone else or having someone dependant on him
    Blood Type: Unknown
    Skin Color: White
    Other Remarks: He works as a freelance bounty hunter but used to be a member of a government spy network. Having been ordered to infiltrate a cult of assassins became conflicted by his duty and his developing sympathies. Ultimately chose to do the "right thing" and destroy the cult he was then discarded by the government when he was no longer useful. Having destroyed his relationships as a result of his commitment firstly by "joining" the cult and then again by destroying it he now hires himself out to the highest bidder regardless of political or moral sympathies. He lives by his own moral compass and has an aversion to personal relationships as he feels that everyone eventually turns on him.

    Oh my gosh I couldn't deal with that! I thought I was being ambitious with two (not POV though, just one POV)
    He sounds interesting though, as does the story with fifteen mcs and the details you've let slip in the character description.

    I feel ya, I took on three. And that has proven to be a challenge all it's own. 15 just seems way to hard to keep track of. :)

    Well 12/13 of them are a group together and share the majority of the action. The other two are "baddies" who each have their own story arc. The concept is that these are all middle aged guys who used to adventure together when they were young but went their separate ways. Now they have to come back together again and try to get over the distance between them and the various bitterness they feel toward each other from past arguments and what has happened to them since. The story starts with Jorin and the others are added over a number of chapters.

    I actually have them quite well developed and they are very familiar to me. They have been all in my head for the last couple of years almost like a gang of friends (I do have real friends though just in case anyone was worried :p). So I know how they all react to different situations and what their general stories are and who loves who and who hates who.

    Location: Moved to Virginia after he got out of prison, haven't decided where he grew up
    Eyes:
    Nose:
    Eyebrows:
    Mouth:
    General attitude: friendly and outgoing. Willing to shoot you in the face if one of his friends tells him to do it, but he will try to be "polite" about it. Unless you hurt his/their feelings, then he will hold a grudge like a python peddling homemade diamonds (he also loves wordplay. I'm going to find a way to work that line in FYI ;) ).
    Blood Type:

    Height: average

    Powers (if present) : starts out as a muggle in the first book, will (very slowly) develop Air/Fire/Water powers over the course of the series

    Music Taste: all over the place (Pop, Rock, Metal, Rap...), but his favorite songs are "When You're Evil" and "People Like Us"
    Outfit:
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present) :
    Biggest Fear: letting his friends down
    Skin Color: white

    Other Remarks: is both such a ruthless up-and-coming gangster and such a hopeless scifi/fantasy nerd that he takes great pride in describing himself as being Lawful Evil.

    I don't generally create these for my characters as i'm more of a pantser , but here's my MC from my current WIP based on how hes developed so far

    First Name: Ben
    Middle Name: "the blade" more of a by name than an actual middle name
    Surname: Gibbon
    Hair: Shaved
    Height: 6'1"
    Age: early thirties
    Body Type: Lean but muscular
    Location: the land east of the wall
    Eyes: blue
    Nose: Broken (several times)
    Outfit: Combats and boots
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): Knife scar to left cheek
    General attitude: Cynical (particularly with regard to orders from above), insanely brave to the point of recklessness
    Biggest Fear: Cowardice
    Blood Type: O
    Skin Color: white
    Other Remarks: The conflict on attitude vs fear shows the internal conflict that drives the character, he's an incredibly brave man but he's been doing this (recon team leader) too long and hes basically broken inside by the constant danger and the people he's lost, so much so that his reputation for reckless bravery is actually motivated by fear of being thought a coward.

    This character and his story are still in the early development stages. Some of these questions I hadn't thought about yet - like clothing. It prompted me to do a bit of research and see what would be most practical for his community. So I found this useful :bigtongue:

    First Name: Istaqaqoda ("Taqa")
    Hair: Dark brown
    Middle Name: None
    Height: 5'9"
    Age: 19
    Body Type: Athletic, large chest and strong arms - built like a swimmer.
    Location: The canyon river where he and his kind live.
    Powers (if present): None.
    Eyes: Hazel
    Handwriting: Doesn't read or write.
    Nose: It's there?
    Music Taste: The only music he knows is his people's music, something like tribal music.
    Eyebrows: Thick, brown.
    Outift: A fitted breechcloth, wrapped and tucked twice so that no bit of fabric hangs down (too much dripping when wet.) Nothing else.
    Mouth: Friendly, easy smile.
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): None
    General attitude: Pleasant, friendly, quietly determined, prone to self-doubt and envy.
    Biggest Fear: That he will never be known as anything more than "the retarded man's son."
    Blood Type: Not relevant.
    Skin Color: Red-brown
    Other Remarks: Taqa doesn't aspire to leadership, but he does wish to do something remarkable with his life. He wants to prove to himself that he is capable of bringing honor to his family, that he isn't simple-minded like his father, and to prove to the village that their care for him was not in vain. He has a complicated relationship with his father, who he deeply loves but also, in a small way he would never dare utter aloud, he resents for being different from all the other fathers. Taqa isn't the chosen one, Basa is, but he feels that he must make a name for himself within the shadow of the chosen one's destiny to prove his own worth.

    Music Taste: Alternative rock
    Eyebrows: Glamorous natural
    Outift: T-shirts, dark slim jeans or knee-length shorts.
    Mouth: How do I describe this?
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): Dimples.
    General attitude: Positive
    Biggest Fear: They're pretty brave. Maybe their biggest fear is being afraid.
    Blood Type: B+
    Skin Color: I don't know. They're mostly Serbian, so just look at Serbian people.
    Other Remarks: Zenzi is one of the two nonbinary characters in my story, along with Enla. Their mother died after they were born, so they were raised by their father. In 2010, their father married Tori's mother, making them stepsiblings. Like my other characters, they live in suburban Gojian (the capital of Famenta), in Macoma County, Maynard, and go to school at Exeter Tertiary in Gojian. They're my bravest character, and the most protective of their friends.

    Main protagonist for my current work, I guess? This actually made me think - in my head, I know who she is, but I haven't really written down her traits.
    First Name: Celeste
    Hair: Long, flowing pink hair, bangs to the right side
    Height: Short to average? Actual values are irrelevant, but the ideas of 'short' and 'tall' are relative, so I'd much prefer for a reader to view everyone through relative lenses.
    Age: Technically 2, but physically 18. Yes, this will be explained a few lines down.
    Body Type: Thin to average?
    Location: I assume this is referring to where the character is located? If yes, then Eden, city of the Angelus. But she travels a fair amount, so...
    Powers (if present): Enhanced senses and physical ability, ability to 'soulshift', or manipulate soulforce, a quantum phenomena that exists in every living being in my world. Basically, the ability to control and shift certain amounts of soulforce between matter and energy states.
    Eyes: Amber.
    Handwriting: Elegant cursive when trying, very messy when not.
    Nose: Not relevant.
    Music Taste: Eden doesn't have much music, but classical from the few pieces it does have.
    Eyebrows: Attack eyebro-kidding, not relevant.
    Outift: Sleeveless white shirt with cut-out back (for wings), simple knee-length skirt with a sash around her waist, and that's about all that is needed to be described.
    Mouth: Normal? Again not relevant.
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): Not genetic but as part of her physique, Celeste has four white feathered wings on her back, and a much smaller pair on her head, just above her ears.
    General attitude: Naive, innocent, unwilling to hurt others. Respects life greatly and tries to avoid conflict when possible. Backfires horribly and she grows out of being overly-idealistic eventually.
    Biggest Fear: Losing the people close to her and being shunned for being 'abnormal' compared to other Angelus.
    Blood Type: Doesn't have blood like normal people, explained below.
    Skin Color: Paler than normal.
    Other Remarks: So Celeste is actually a Seraph, an artificial soldier created to be 'perfect', except she came out wrong. Instead of being emotionless, she is very empathetic and did not enjoy violence at all. She also emerged in a childlike state, which is why she is so naive about the world. As a Seraph, her body is made of altered soulforce, which is why her 'blood' isn't really 'blood'. Consequently, she cannot age, cannot get sick, and can morph her appearance with enough focus and experience (she never does). But as a side effect, she is sterile and cannot have children, and will outlive everyone she loves. Yeah.

    I have 7 MCs and a 5 page Character bio sheet *chuckles* This is light by my books :)

    Here's an abridged version of my favorite. :)

    Nose: Nothing altogether significant

    Eyebrows: Not thin, Not bushy. Mainly frowning

    Mouth: Spews like a sailor if provoked. otherwise completely unremarkable, expressionless.

    General attitude: friendly and approachable toward others. Will gravitate toward military personnel. Has a protective mentality and attitude toward non-uniformed service personnel.(i.e. Civilians) Has put his life on the line more times for his planet than he cares to think about, and will continue to do it, simply because its the right thing to do. Values honor and integrity, over test scores and personality profiles.

    Blood Type: O

    Hair: Brown, styled in standard 20th century US Marine Corps regulation.

    Height: 6'3"

    Body Type: Athletically Muscular (pre-genetics)

    Powers (if present) : Extensive training and Rank are the only "Powers" he wields.

    Handwriting: Simplified, variations of short hand

    Music Taste: 20th century "Classical"

    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present) :None

    Biggest Fear: Losing men pointlessly.

    Location:
    Torquay, UK
    First Name: Zachary (Zach to most, Zachy to his mother)
    Hair: Shoulder length, black
    Middle Name: Elijah (His mother was into the bible theme)
    Last Name: Preston
    Height: 5'7"
    Age: Mid to late 20s? Anywhere between 26-28, I'm not really sure yet.
    Body Type: Leaning towards underweight. He fills out and becomes athletic.
    Powers (if present): Zach has the ability to control and manipulate living cells. This "control" (as I'm currently thinking of it) firsts manifests itself as rapid self-healing, done subconsciously. He later develops his ability, discovering that he can heal others, then that he can manipulate his cells to perform better, or change entirely. He uses it to be able to run indefinitely without tiring, stops feeling pain, and realises he can change the shape, size and condition of his body. Things really come to a head when he realises that he can use this ability on others through skin contact.
    Eyes: Dark brown, narrow, sad-looking. His irises turn white when he uses his ability, leaving just a black speck of a pupil in a sea of white. His eyes widen too, as he feels heat and pressure behind them.
    Handwriting: Appalling.
    Nose: His nose is tall, I suppose, but not long.
    Music Taste: Grunge, Alternative Rock, Indie, Stoner Rock, Punk, some Metal. He was into emo but grew out of it.
    Eyebrows: Black and thick.
    Outfit: Band tshirts, jeans or combats, trainers. Unbranded stuff, old, worn-out, faded.
    Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): A very light scar on his forehead, like a small dent from being hit with a hammer when he was a child (not a mutation, I know but it seemed to fit here). Zach also has two unusual glands in his collarbone area, which seem to be actively doing something...and get hot and itchy when he's using his ability.
    General attitude: Withdrawn, private and mistrustful, but not entirely unapproachable. Zach is very enthusiastic, almost obsessive about the things he does like. He has a bit of a chip on his shoulder after suffering with bullying and racial abuse for much of his life, he now sees it everywhere, even when its not there.
    Biggest Fear: Coming home to find that his mother has overdosed.
    Blood Type: Odd.
    Skin Color: Brown. Most assume that he is Middle-Eastern, though he could just as easily be of Hispanic, Greek, even Maori descent. His white mother genuinely has no idea who his father was.
    Other Remarks: Three personalities inhabit Zach Preston's body, due to an acquired brain injury caused by the hammer assault when he was a child. The dominant personality is his own, sullen and sad. The second is the personality I'm currently calling "The Heartstopper", cold and emotion-free, but with a zealous moral code. The third is "Little Zachy", the little boy who truly died when he was assaulted.

    Where cushions are comfy, and straps hold firm.
    First Name:My friend (and all others) call me Haley, but I am actually Z-25976.84 Cortex. But I like Haley better. Hair: N/A
    Middle Name: I am sorry, what is a middle name? Height: 853.1 Microns
    Age: 100 cycles Body Type: I suppose to your human intellect that would be non-newtonian
    Location: At the present in a Harpy 3, rather cumbersome wheeled vehicle. Though I was on a Hive Brood Science/Research vessel. Powers (if present): Ha, ha...
    Eyes: Well for the time being the sensor arrays in the Harpy. Handwriting: I don't know. Perhaps if I get a body at some point I will get back to you on this one. ;)
    Nose: Huh?! Music Taste: Well all types of music that can be picked up on Human radio. Though the more dance-able the better. :)
    Eyebrows: I am offended since I lack brows per-se... Outift: Again, this will only be answerable after I get a host body of some sort.
    Mouth: See the other comments about a body. Sheesh your starting to be irritating. Genetic mutations (i.e. freckles, red hair, dimples. If present): I can connect directly to biologic and machines with bio-tech interface. Though it would be painful for a biologic as it involves physically tapping into the nervous system and neural networks, there is a mutual benefit for the host body in this instance.
    General attitude: Sassy, and A little giddy for blood. But Typically within standard operating parameters. Biggest Fear: Oddly enough the inability to forget. Though I really can not, no matter how I have tried to delete certain memories from my expanse of memory banks.
    Blood Type: Sure blood...I am only functional because of the micro-fusion cell built into my external membrane tissues. Skin Color: How would I know, no one bothered to tell me.
    Other Remarks: Despite the only being I have known as friend. That of course being on John C. Merrick. I have not known much else since my inception on the Hive Brood Science/Research ship. Our Relationship is one that I will never forget. Though he was an engineered Human/Brood hybrid. He managed to break down my more logical side and barriers, and showed me how to 'feel'. I liked him, and found that Merrick was a most interesting subject of study for myself. Though I do not know you well enough to offer any personal data stored within my memory banks. In the 9 cycles I have known Merrick, he was a good bio-creature at heart. I know every facet of his life, he shared the best and worst moments with me, in long conversations. Though I found him most tedious and of singular thought at times, I have come to understand his odd persona. I was insulted to a certain extent that he would not allow me interface, but I honored his wishes on the matter as he would have erased me from what I am today. I miss him, as he finally found his mate that he went on and on about at length. Though from a prisoner that was sentenced to be recycled, Merrick had found and died with his mate. Though he sent this condemned to me, to find his stolen larva, Sherry. That was when they were first taken by the Brood and transformed by the Brood Genetic Technicians. Now with my friend terminated as a result of not getting the vital injection he needed to keep him alive, I must roam with this condemned to be recycled in the Harpy 3. To be fair I am starting to understand Merrick's wish that I find his long lost Sherry. With him gone, I have taken a liking to using the vehicles heavy plasma cannon against the Brood on Earth. Seems I am experiencing what Merrick called 'revenge'. Though I have not felt much more than what my synthetic synapse can register, I am in the process of taking that action. I figure I owe him that much, seeing as he was a good bio-creature to me. We shared an exchange of personal data, that I will not soon forget. He terminated with his love mate Patricia, and left me to find his 'daughter' that he called Sherry. Though she had been torn from the birth canal by the Brood, and now I am tasked with finding her, in honor of his inability to do so. So I roam with the branded, all across the mega cities and waste lands in search of her genetic signature. To drive the perilous journey in command of the Harpy 3, and take to the road with the might roar of the fusion reactor engine propelling the tank of an old war machine in hopes of finding Sherry.
