How do you create human beings from nothing? This guide helps writers fully understand their characters by giving a series of questions in four specific sections: background, mind, body, and soul. Questions range from simple ways to understand the physical aspects of your characters to fully understanding their motivations and desires.

For a more detailed look at sections:

Background: includes basic and biographical questions such as, "What languages do they know" or "How old will they when they die?"

The Mind: includes questions surrounding personality traits and guiding motivations such as, "How good is your character at cooperating?" or "Is politics important for your character?"

The Body: includes primary visuals, physical attributes, and personality and style questions such as "Are their eyes closer together or wider apart?" or "Would they be prone to wearing hats?"

Finally, the soul is a series of prompts that will get you thinking outside of the box!
