I have an idea about a story of a band of travelers. I want to write an outline for the characters first and I have an idea for the template, but I think I can refine it more. I'm writing this stuff in my journal. Each character outline will take up two pages. Here is my template Name: Gender: Race: (The use of this term will vary from story to story. Sometimes it means different species like elf, human, dwarf etc. Or it can mean African, European, Asian etc. In my story the characters will be human but have fictional races.) Personality traits: Appearance: Role: (The main characters will be apart of a band of travelers and all of them have assigned combat and management roles.) Origin: (Their country, tribe, kingdom, and/or organization that they come from as well as the geographical region.) Complimenting characters: (Characters they get along with best) Opposing characters: (Characters they don't get along with) Biography: (1 page long background story of the character) If anyone has an idea of what to add to my template, feel free to give your input.
