Character Development

PRIMARY CHARACTER DEVELPMENT
There are several areas to concider when building a character, physical, mental, and spiritual.

You can use several methods of character development but I found that doing all 4 listed below created a more in depth character.

1. Use a D and D chart

2. Write a biography

3. Write a psych evaluation

4. Use a chart you developed yourself.

I have sheets I developed from the various sources I could find . Visit my WHITE PAGES to get to them Below is a link to names lists on another page.

Please see my White Pages for sheets you can use.


SECONDARY CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
There are a few things you have to concider when making a background character. You don't have to be as indepth, but having some information can help the situation along.

Things to concider:

1. Appearance
2. Personality
3. Relationship to your characters
4. Place in the story
5. Importance
6. Usefulness
7. Allegience
8. Family Connections.

You can do the same charts for a non essential character as you can for a main character. Its your choice.


TERINTARY CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
