Hi! So, I've been trying to work out some main characters for a story, but currently I'm not sure if they are sufficiently fleshed out – if they are as interesting and relatable as they need to be. To this end, I'm going to post some character descriptions below and update them with as many details as come to mind. Please feel free to make suggestions as general or specific as you want! (I will even accept suggestion for favorite food, color, etc. –anything that might help fill in the little holes in their personalities.) A little background on the world they live in: In this world, humans are the only mammal, but all humans have the ears of a mammal from our world instead of human ears. All spaces in the ecosystem occupied by mammals in our world are filled by insects, birds, reptiles, or other non-mammals, which all have distinct names – the names for the animals from our world refer to people with that type of ear. For instance, a "pig" is a person with pig ears, but a "chan-chan" is a medium-large reptile roughly equivalent to our pigs. Discrimination by skin color it nonexistant, as is discrimination based on sexual orientation, but ear-based stereotypes and discrimination are as prevalent as racism is to us. CHARACTERS: Stella is a 23-year-old blonde golden retriever with brown eyes who has just joined the police force at the beginning of the story. Enthusiastic, energetic, and positive, she's fairly sheltered and naive, having been on the receiving end of mostly positive stereotypes her whole life. She lives in a small apartment with her girlfriend Nicole and enjoys jogging. Nicole is a 22-year-old brunette black lab with brown eyes who is training to be a nurse. She's kind and caring and loves running on the beach and stargazing, or sometimes even stargazing on the beach. Nicole cares very deeply about Stella and would be heartbroken if Stella betrayed her. Katrina is a 22-year-old black housecat with black hair yellow-green eyes. She's very mysterious and will not reveal what she does for a living, but she does seem to know an awful lot about when break-ins and gang riots are going to happen... She has no criminal record, though. She lives in a one-room apartment in the ghetto, though she doesn't appear to spend much time there. She will not wear tight pants and always wears gloves. She likes watching the rain, hates being out in the rain, and her favorite food is chashu bao. (Chashu is to chan-chan as pork is to pig, bao is a Chinese-style steamed bun – one peculiarity of this world is that when a food originates from a culture they don't tend to translate the name.) I hope my characters are interesting to you! Throw any scenarios at me, and I'll update this post with character reactions so you can get a better sense of them in action.
