6 Important Questions to Ask About Your Characters
There are multiple layers that make up each character, and external forces can affect their dynamics. However, each character will always have an innate personality that they tend to go back to, especially in stressful situations. These questions (and others) can help establish that core personality.
1. Is he/she assertive?
2. Does he/she prefer solitude or to be with others?
3. When provoked, does he/she fight or flee?
4. Is there one person that he/she cares for more than anyone else? (It doesn’t have to be romantic.)
5. How does he/she react under pressure?
6. Is he/she resourceful?
