Characters table for fiction
Whether you're a novelist, author, short novel, script, TV show, game, web show, web show or blog-based fun, your character should come to life for your readers or audiences. Use the very detail table below to help authors create fictitious figures that are credible, engaging, and inimitable.
You can print this page to fill in the following forms for each character you have created. IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that all boxes are mandatory and should only be used as a guideline. Drawing diagrams should encourage you to think about your character in a new way instead of restricting your use. Enjoy getting to know your character!
