Notes/Extra.. Any information about char you want to state:

Grah! This thing is huge! 7 pages in word-- at least when it was filled out.
Basically, this should help out any would-be author flesh out their characters. (and hopefully end crappy Mary Sues)
Little things can be added to make it more interesting, but it's not neccessary.
I hope this helps!
By the way:
Thansk to everyone faving this. I'm far too lazy to say thanks to everyone one-by-one... I'd be here for days.

Something that stands out about them, like a huge scar on their face. Basically, it's what draws a person's eye to that character- something you notice on first glance.

Considering my most detailed one was... 11 pages. T-Tu

If you don't like it, you don't have to use it, simple as that.
I appreciate constructive criticism, not 'oh, mine is better than yours'. Thanks.

Just saying that you shouldn't hyperbole a title when there are clearly more thoughtout ones. I don't get how you thought I was saying "mine is better than yours" though, since it's not mine.

I'm not saying your's is bad at all, just that you shouldn't say it's the "ultimate" one. However, if you want constructive criticism, I'll gladly do so if you want me to. =)

Actually it's a little thing called sarcasm. It is not something to be taken literally. Now let me ask you a question; If I made a sarcastic comment on a piece of your work that you put hard work into and then linked it to a piece of shit ripped out of a book, which is copyrighted material that you're not allowed to post on this site anyway, and then claiming to want to give criticism when you can't even accept the fact that there are people who call things they may not be.
And didn't your mother ever teach you the lesson that if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all? Same thing applies online, deary.

This conversation is a month old and your statement of stolen work has no proof. It doesn't matter though, I've been done talking here for quite a while.

It's the way you phrased it. It sounded a tad snooty. I'm going through a rough patch and I'm sick at the moment, so I'm very snappish.
You can't get too detailed-- that'd be a little weird anyway. (I seriously don't want to know a character's underwear size!)
I think I'll leave it off there.

Names with purpose upset me sometimes. That's kind of a mistake many writers do, leading to marysueism. Giving a character with a perposeful name is very dangerous if a characters personality and traits are already laying on the Marysue floor.

But other than that, this is very nice
Reply
:iconarmageddonsaxis:
armageddonsAxis Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010  Student General Artist
Okay, yes, but sometimes names have meanings without meaning to have one. For instance, my name is Krystal, and it has come to have meaning that I am pretty easy to "see through"; or I'm easily read. A name can be a metaphor. Though not all names have purpose.
In the profile- it can either mean the name's meaning or why the author picked the name. Sometimes you like to pick names randomly.
Reply
:icondarngoodbacon:
Darngoodbacon Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010
Yeah! All names have meaning, it just bothers me when the name is obvious. Like... Remus Lupin is a werewolf (I love the character though)...Mary Sues tend to have horribly pointy names like Savior Angel or something XD

But I see what you meant now! Sorry :3

:iconarmageddonsaxis:
armageddonsAxis Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2010  Student General Artist
Yeah, Remus Lupin is a very lame name, when you think about it... Obvious names suck. Maybe I should post examples of my character's names... Yeah, they do...

It's alright, it happens. But then again, I am an AP Lit geek. o-O

I agree wholeheartedly to that... Damn Rowling and her retarded name skills. o_o For pete's sake! Give him some kind of badass name meaning moon or something-- don't make it obvious. XD

It was like she was sleepy or something, named him, and couldn't bare to remain him after growing attached to that name. That happens, I just wish she's own up to it, 'cause Rowling Lupin...Remus...Really...I'll forgive her for Sirius 'cause they're all named after star groups, the Blacks are. So the dog things woulda been more like cooool dude and less like "Well, duh"
