Personality Traits

There are several ways to build a character. These personality traits will make it easier to make the emotional life of a character more complete and complex. Some of these may repeat themselves. If there are letters missing, its due to the webfilters where I am working on this site.

1. Addict- Your character has an addictive personality making them prone to such things as alcoholism or being overly devoted to the wrong person. What ever the object of the addiction your character is almost obsessive

2. Aesthetic- A character with this trait will have a well developed sensitivity to beauty, especially art of any form.

3. Aggressive - An aggressive character may either have a great driving energy and initiative towards a goal, being aggressive in hunting or practicing magic for example; or he may be aggressive in the sense that he is bullying, and quick to fight. Some mixture of both is quite likely

4. Altruist - A character with this trait has an unselfish interest in the welfare of others. Beyond merely caring for other people this character would hold the welfare of others above his own interests as a principle.

5. Callous - Your character is rather hardened when it comes to emotions and even relationships. May not have much sympathy for other people.

6. Charismatic - A charismatic character will be able to influence people by sheer force of personality. Difficult to Role-play it takes a lot of effort to be charismatic. Leadership and the ability to engender enthusiasm in others is a must.

7. Charming - A charming character has a personality that is pleasing to others. Being charming entails being well mannered and pleasant to others, perhaps a bit chivalrous if a male or demure if a female, though not necessarily

8. Chaste - A chaste character is , modest and pure. Perhaps she led a sheltered life or a had a particular religious upbringing. It may even be a personal belief based on the manner in which she was raised. A chaste character might have very deeply ingrained

9. Chivalrous - A chivalrous character lives by a code of honor, is courteous, generous and honest. Most Paladins accept some sort of chivalrous code of honor to guide them through life, though you need not be a Paladin to believe or follow a chivalrous ideal.

10. Clumsy - A clumsy character may be described as prone. The character will trip over, bump into, and drop things

11. Composed - Your character is calm, cool and collected. Not even imminent danger of the worst kind can shake his reserve. He is not easily shaken or disturbed by the actions of others. The composed character rarely loses his self control or his temper.

12. Courteous - Your character is well mannered, respectful, civil and polite. Usually very aware of what is proper and what is not.

13. Crude - Your character lacks social grace, taste, and tact. A character with this trait is likely to do or say inappropriate things. She may find herself insulting or offending people without meaning to.

14. Curious - Having a compulsive desire to investigate and learn. The unknown must be known, the confusing understood. If this character hears a noise in the dark or out of sight, smells something, sees a flash of light in the woods, hears a legend or rumor, etc. they will have an urge to investigate. This is of course not always very healthy for the character.

15. Cynical - Your character sees the worst in other people. Most of their actions will be attributed to selfish motives. He is not likely to be very trusting.

16. Dishonest - Your character is untrustworthy and deceitful, perhaps even corrupt. He may not care much for other peoples feelings or just lies as an easy way out of blame and to make himself look good.

17. Disloyal - A character with this trait is not committed or faithful to a government, cause, ideal, or person. This character will follow the road that best suits their personal needs in total disregard for the effects it has on any allegiance he may have spoken or were dictated to him through terms of service. Not the trustworthy type though somehow they usually get others to believe they are.

18. Dolt - Your character just isn't all that bright, to say the least. Some concepts may be very difficult for her to grasp, but other simple things she may understand just find. This goes way beyond a mere lack of intelligence. The dolt is a very simple and childlike person. Perhaps you may wish to play this further as an idiot savant where your character excels at one particular, sometimes useless skill.

19. Fanatical - When your character hooks on to something he hooks on excessively. Your character has a tendency towards this sort of behavior in general and there is usually one thing in his life to which he has an intense uncritical devotion be it a god a belief or the hunt.

20. Flamboyant - Your character loves attention and is more than willing to play up to it by being showy and colorful in their dress, speech and behavior.

21. Flippant - A character with this trait treats serious situations, people or events that are due respect lightly and with disrespect. May dismiss what others have to say with little regard for the other person or the situation, particularly if it does not affect him.

22. Folksy - Your character is sociable and friendly. Very informal in manner. May have been raised in a smaller town or village where such familiarity is common.

23. Fortitude - A character with this trait can meet danger or bear pain with courage. Often ignoring either or both. Not likely to run into the empaths guild screaming for healing when he merely has a minor wound.

24. Genial - Cheerful and kindly, your character is most gracious to others and a very friendly sort

25. Genius - Extraordinary intellectual power. Your character is far above the average adventurer in mental abilities. Such a trait may have made her feel isolated and different from others. Or, if she was raised in an environment more suitable for the young genius, may very well look down on those she considers her mental inferiors.

26. Impetuous - Impulsive in nature. Your character may make rash and emotional decisions. Your the who sees the lever and pulls it while saying, "What's this do?"

27. Impudent - Contemptuous of others, y. Your character may be described as being insolent as well as impertinent. Not the most polite person in Elanthia.

28. Inconsiderate - Careless of the rights or feelings of others. Your character is thoughtless when it comes to others, though not necessarily purposefully they still don't spend much time considering how the people around them are affected by their actions

29. Indifferent - Your character has no particular interest, loyalties or liking of anything. It may simply be a cultivated impartiality to most things or as deep as apathy where your character has a general lack of emotion or concern for anything,

30. Lackadaisical - Lacking life, spirit, or zest. Your character is sluggish in character and action.

31. Mad - Insane, not mentally stable. There are many levels to madness. Your character maybe slightly odd, to full blown schizophrenic. Perhaps she appears to be normal but has an underlying mental illness such as a form of sociopathic behavior.

32. Maverick - Non conforming. Your character is an individual, almost to a fault, may find following his own path preferable to following the right path.

33. Mercurial - Your character tends to moodiness and unexpected changes in character and behavior. Usually there is an underlying cause to this, the changes are not random. Your character may be psychotically insane, manic/depressive or even trying very difficult to be something they are not and when their true character shows through others are surprised at the change.

34. Meticulous - Extremely careful in attending to details. Your character wants things done right and usually wants it done right the first time. Measure twice (or five times) and cut once is her motto.

35. Namby-Pamby - Your character is weak, indecisive, and cowardly, basically a Character that lacks character. She'll be ineffectual at reaching goals or sticking to any plans.

36. Narcissist - Beyond vain, your character is practically in love with himself. Nothing is too good for him, no one is more beautiful, attractive or charming. Your character is likely to be egotistical and self-centered as well.

37. Nefarious - Your character is fragrantly wicked. Most evil people aren't evil in their own minds but your character probably takes pleasure in being wicked and impious. A certain amount of style and charm usually hides the nefariousness of your character from the eyes of the common folk who happen upon him, but he plots and schemes with no regard for any but himself. Be sure other players are aware of your intentions before being too nefarious, of course.

38. Obsequious - Humbly or excessively attentive, fawning. Your character finds it much more agreeable to be in service to someone who will provide him with all his needs and is not against a bit of groveling to make sure he gets all that he feels he deserves. A bit weasly, but if he plays his cards right, a comfortable weasel.

39. Opportunist - Your character tends to exploit opportunities with little regard for the consequences of his actions. He may not take principles or even other people into consideration either.

40. Ornery - Your character is quite irritable and easily aggravated.

41. Panache - Not quite as flashy as the flamboyant character, your character nevertheless makes quite a stylish sight.

42. Paranoid - Mental disorder marked by delusions and irrational suspicion. Your character has a hard time trusting anyone and is willing to leap at the slightest indication that people are not trustworthy.

43. Passive - Submissive, patient, non-violent. Your character may not be all of these things its up to you to determine how passive he is.

44. Pensive - Musingly or dreamily thoughtful. Your character may constantly muse over sad and depressing things. A rather introverted type.

45. Pious - Your character is marked by an extreme reverence for religion and the Gods. Your character is determined to do what is right by the gods. Generally not applied to those who follow the more evil aspects of the gods, but of those who follow the light aspects.

46. Pompous - Your character is arrogant, pretentious and/ or ostentatious. He is of the privileged and makes no bones about showing it off. He is not likely to think well of those of a lesser class.

47. Quick Tempered- Easily angered, your character has a hot temper and is easily provoked

48. Rambunctious - Undisciplined, unruly and marked by mostly uncontrolled exuberance. Your character is somewhat like a puppy, lots of energy, little direction and basically good natured.

49. Rapscallion - Your character is a little rascal, a little rogue and a little ne'er-do-well. She's likely to be very charismatic and maybe even playful and mischievous. Still she might just sell her grandmother if the price was right.

50. Rover- Your character has a touch of the wanderlust. She never likes to stay too long in one place and is much happier out on the open road living where ever she happens to stop rather than settled down in a home of her own.

51. ic - Your character takes an abnormal delight in cruelty. He'll kick the smelly cat when no one is looking, push old beggars to their knees for the fun of it, and will feel no remorse while doing it. She cares only for her own pleasure and will lie and misrepresent their interest to hurt others both emotionally and physically. The overly ic character must be prepared to be d by other characters, be sure other players are aware of your motives if you choose this path so it never hurts the player as well.

52. Short-sighted- Your character doesn't see the far reaching affects of his actions and decisions. May have a very narrow view of situations as well since they can't seem to discern any consequences in most things.

53. Steadfast - Firm in belief, determination, or adherence. Your character is very loyal. When he makes an oath he keeps it no matter what the cost to himself. Can be a tragic figure if he has married an unfaithful and coldhearted woman, or be the basis for great heroics and commitment to a worthwhile cause.

54. Stoic - Your character may appear very cold to the outside world. He rarely shows feeling or passion in response to events especially in regard to pain and distress. He may just be indifferent or perhaps very self-controlled. Either way he can put up with far more than the ordinary person.

55. Subservient - Willing to serve in subordinate capacity. The subservient character balks at being placed in positions of leadership and power. He does not want that kind of responsibility. He may be ly shy or just a follower by nature.

56. Valorous - Your character is a hero waiting to be. When courage and heroics are needed your character will step forward with no thought to consequence, only to what is right and noble.

57. Wayward - Your character is rather capricious. Impulsive and unpredictable in his actions. Follows his inclinations with no concerns as to what is right and wrong.

58. Wily - Your character is full of guile and cunning. If a bit of trickery is called for your character will not only think up a good one but carry it through to the end. He may have a touch of roguishness or could just be an astute and shrewd business man
Quirks of Personality

1. Accent- Your character has an accent. Decide whether it is a regional accent or if your character originally spoke another language. Determing how heavy you want to play it.

2. Allergies- Your character is allergic to one or more things. Decide what things and what the reaction is. Magic? Cats? Do they make you itch? Sneeze? Sniffle?

3. Animal Lover- Your character loves animals. Determine how far this love extends. Will your character refuse to hunt animal like creatures? Will your character pounce lovingly on familiars and companions paying little heed to their affects on the poor creatures?

4. Bald- Obviously, if you choose this and your character is not already bald you may want to visit the hair shop in Leth. Play it as if your character is going bald by selecting Thinning at first if you want to make a big deal of your character going bald.

5. Blind- Your character cannot see at all. This is difficult to play with any consistency. Try squelching all the room descriptions at first to learn how to ignore game descriptions when you first

6. Clownish- Much like the class clown, your character is always looking for a way to make people laugh. Though, she may cross the line at times when it comes to appropriateness.

7.Deaf- Not able to hear a sound, your character wouldn't hear other players words or any sounds from the environment as well. Maybe he would be able to read lips to a certain degree, but you would have to be careful to remain consistent with this one.

8. Drunkard- Drinking to excess is something your character is well practiced in. Always carries a handy flask or bottle to indulge his taste for the drink at a moments notice. Your character might be a happy drunk or a melancholy one depending on his character. Note also that some people are exactly opposite in personality when they have been drinking.

9. Egotistical- Your character thinks very, very highly of herself, to the point that she probably dismisses other peoples beliefs or ideas if she doesn't happen to agree with them. She may be a bit opinionated as well

10. Item- Similar to a rembrance item, but your character also attaches some magical qualities to it. A good luck charm or a warder of evil influences. The item probably holds some significance to the character beyond the magical qualities as well.

11. Food - There is one particular food item your character can just not pass up. Be it chocolate, tarts or even spicy sausages. He might take silly risks or go miles out of his way to procure a fresh backed tart. Your character probably tends toward other addictive behaviors as well.

12. Facial Tick- An annoying little spasm that can cause some embarrassment. Maybe brought on by stress or nervousness. Perhaps its in one cheek or the forehead its up to you to decide why, where and also how noticeable it is.

13. Gaudy- When it comes to over done your character corners the market. Garish colors, too much jewelry and accessories as well. Your character may not be aware of how gaudy she is, or perhaps she is well aware and uses it to suit her purposes as a gypsy might swirl her skirts and flaunt her colorful beads to distract an unwary traveler while she dips into his purse.

14. Glutton- Your character loves to eat, and he'll eat to the point of excess. Too much is never enough if your character likes something. Perhaps it stems from a childhood where food was scarce and now that he has it he eats as if it will be taken away again.

15. Habitual Liar- If one lie will suffice ten are even better. Sometimes your character may lie just for the sake of lying. This does not necessarily mean that your character is a cruel to others. The lying may be limited to the "tall tale" type of lie. Telling a young adventurer still wet behind the ears that Trolls are good place to start off hunting is a liar with a will to hurt and not your run of the mill habitual liar.

16. Hobby-Alchemy- Almost everyone has a hobby you enjoy, your character loves alchemy. The mixing of potions and drying of herbs makes him beam with delight.

17. Hobby-Origami- Another hobby one might pursue. Folding bits of paper into little shapes is a pastime your character loves to indulge in. He may find it a relaxing change from the hectic days on the battle field. Or perhaps it is a way for him to express his artistic side.

18. Illiterate- Unable to read. Perhaps the Common tongue is your characters second language and he never learned to read it, or maybe your character was never educated at all. What ever the reason, most catalogs, road signs, scrolls, etc are beyond the understanding of your character.

19. Insomniac- Your character has trouble sleeping. Difficult to play up in DR, but still possible. Your character may appear to be haggard and worn out much of the time.

20. Limp- Your character walks with a limp. What ever the cause, an old wound a birth defect it will affect your characters behaviour and perhaps a good deal of his background.

21. Musically Inclined- Your character has a love of music and at least some ability to back it up. Though, it may require training in the skill to get there. She may prefer singing to an instrument.

22. Nervous Habit- Your character is afflicted with some form of nervous habit be it biting her nails or playing with a strand of hair. Decide what the habit it is and work it into your characters daily activities. She would probably not be all that conscious of doing it.

23. Opinionated- Arguing with your character is like arguing with a brick wall. Your character is set in his ways and will happily try to convince everyone of the veracity of his point of view. You probably enjoy arguing and may not realize how frustrated others are with you.

24. Phobia- Some kind of irrational fear lurks within your character. Is it spiders? Deep water? Strangers? Determine how overpowering it is and stick it to it. Its not always fun to back out of an activity, but if your character knows of the wolf spiders beneath Therein Keep he sure isn't going to be up for a trip down there with his friends. Unless of course he's putting up a facade of nonchalance, but he should break into a cold sweat at the appropriate times nonetheless.

25. Picky Eater- There are just some things that will never cross the lips of your character. In fact, there are a lot of these things. Your character may make bones about how he feels either. He'll turn his nose up at anything if it doesn't suit him, and may not care who's feelings get hurt in the process.

26. Remembrance Item- A special item that your character treasures and always has near him, or perhaps keeps it under lock and key in his home or vault. Its a reminder of some past event that left a mark on your characters life. It might be the personal possession of a friend or parent; some token from a lost love; perhaps a flower from the garden of the women you loved who married another when you chose a life of adventure.

27. Refuses to Wear Glasses- Perhaps its vanity perhaps its just refusing to admit age or weakness, either way your character doesn't see well, and won't wear glasses to correct the problem. You need to decide if your character is near-sighted or far-sighted and how bad his vision is.

28. Restless- Your character can't sit still for too long before he starts fidgeting and looking for something else to do. She wouldn't be the type to listen to long classes without annoying her instructor to . Wandering maybe just the sort of life style this character is born to.

29. Sickly- Your character suffers from some kind of illness or disease, or just has an overall lack of good health. There may be overt symptoms or perhaps your character just tires easily. Perhaps he has periods where he gets better and then once again descends into illness.

30. Sloppy Appearance- Your character may be a plain old slob, or maybe just an absent-minded sage type. Messy hair, worn and stained clothing are the norm. The shop in Shard will surely be the best place for you to pick up a wardrobe.

31. Smokes Cigars/Pipe- Nothing like lounging around with a good smoke. Does your character prefer a particular type of tobacco or cigar? Does he just smoke or does he like to blow rings and such?

32. Squeamish- Your character cannot stand the sight of or gore. Hanging out with the empaths is probably their least favorite past time. Hunting for a living isn't going to be their first choice, or probably their second, either.

33. Superstitious- There are many superstitions you can choose from, or even make one up. In fact, come up with a lot of them. A superstitious person doesn't usually stop with one strange belief. What might your character think is good luck? Bad luck? Any Omens, portents or signs they may believe in?

34. Tone Deaf- When you start to singing the dogs start to howling. You can't sing, though you probably don't recognize the fact that your painfully off-key.

35. Unlucky- When bad things happen, they happen to you. You lose things, drop things, fall down, miss the ferry etc. Though some of this really is bad luck, you can play up the many misfortunes of your characters and make up some of your own.

36. Vain- If there is a mirror around guess who is standing in front of it? You're character may tend toward a lot of primping and may look down on other characters they don't feel are as attractive as themselves. Your character does necessarily have to be attractive themselves though.

37. Vegetarian- Your character does not eat meat, or perhaps only eats fish. Is there a moral reason why she won't eat meat? Cultural? Health?

38. Wear's Glasses- Is your character far-sighted or near-sighted? Your character may not be able to afford glasses right away so play it accordingly. Losing your glasses on occasion can be fun as well.
