Additional Notes on This Character: 

Theme Song:
This has been getting a sudden rush of interest lately, so I went ahead and updated it. It is now a little easier to look at, I arranged the questions a bit better, and I also added a few. Happy profiling!

This isn't the biggest list of questions out there, but this is what I think that you should know about your character and, if there are things that you don't that still do apply to your worlds, that you should perhaps figure out. It'll go a long way to helping to develop them.

If you have any questions, let me know.

This is really great! Though some may not apply it's a really broad range of questions that I have never thought of. Thanks for posting it!

No problem! I figured that any that doesn't apply can just be taken out. Hope it's useful!

Hi, this template is really awesome. I was just wondering, under 'Basic Statistics', what do you mean by 'reason'? I'm really sorry if this is a stupid question.
Jadeookami Featured By Owner May 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's not a stupid question. When I first uploaded this it wouldn't really allow me to format it correctly, the 'Reason' tab is suppose to be indented. It goes under 'nickname', and you're suppose to list the reason they have the nickname you list, if there is any particular reason.

Oops! Never mind, I just figured it out.
