Okay, so I was scrapping through some notebooks from about a year ago and found a character profile for a character that I've actually written a little bit for. Just for comparison, I'm gonna do a before and after just to show how much revising my characters get:


Before
________________

Name: Aurelia
Residence: Platform 6,4023
Height: Average, 5'6"
Hair: Curly, just past shoulders, dark brown
Build: Thin, athletic
Eyes: mocha with bright blue flecks around the irises
Voice: airy, not high or low
Favorite food: vaguely remembers liking pizza, bur enjoys anything she is given to eat
Friends: Captain Black, Zachary (passed)
Family: Family was probably killed, thinks her father may still be alive. Remembers having and older brother and older sister, and two younger brothers
Enemy: The drones
Occupation: maitenance of docks 3,4, and seven on platform 6


After:
________________

Name: Gracen
Residence: Starts out at Work Building A94 in Scraper City, goes on to live in the secret Sky Port (Port X) and then on the Arabella, an airship.
Height: Average, 5'6"
Hair: Golden blonde and straight, when down goes about to her chest but she keeps it up in a ponytail with lots of stray hairs including thin sidebangs
Build: medium structure and athletic build
Eyes: Murky green
Voice: Has an American accent, uncommon for someone of her status and age. Her voice is medium range.
Favorite food: Simply doesn't have one. She only eats when she has to.
Friends: Doesn't really have any. She's friendly towards almost everyone she meets, but doesn't consider very many people her friends. If she did, they would be Penny, Jensen, and Elias.
Family: In the beginning, since she can't remember anything before working at an assembly line in Scraper City, she doesn't really have a family. However, she did have a mother, who died when Gracen was very young, a father, who went off to fight in The Great War, and an older brother who's identity is secret for the time being.
Enemy: Gracen's only enemy is are the drones and enforcers, and basically anybody else who gets in her way of transporting humans out of New Earth.
Occupation: Starts out as an assembly line worker with no past and goes on to become a first mate with no past and then to a captain with a past and an enforcer with a past

So, as you can tell, not only is the "after" one way different, but she's better described and more developed.

Is it bad I wrote 5,000 words just on a character's background history?

I love my main character Carol, she's just so lovely. Totally did not base her appearance off Taylor Swift though. No. Definitely not...
And Martin is super cute and based off of my favorite guy at our school because they're both cute idiots with football and saxophone obsessions and are basically my bae.
And yeah, I love them. And Percy. Don't even get me started on Percy. He's just everybody's favorite character, no matter what.

Okay so I made a new character named Keane and I actually made her a lot like myself, as far as perspective on the world goes (but she's considerably more badass). But I love her so much because she's so different from my other characters, and it's kind of a breath of fresh air for me to think about her and her story, which is awesome, btw. It combines Soul Eater and Avatar and a little bit of Psycho Pass into a story about young adults with elemental powers who go to an academy to get partnered with someone else and fight crime and it sounds really cheesy and cliche but I promise it's not. There's a lot more to it, for instance each pair can be put together based on a number of different aspects of their lives. For instance, Keane and her partner, Jaysen (who's also a work of art) both have rough pasts and went to the academy because it was either that or juvenile hall. It's just. I'm just. AGH SO EXCITED.

Default TTT stuff

When Natural Forces Characters First Got to VC (Minor Spoilers)
Sanna: (well, you see hers in the story so)
Isaac: grew up there and asked five billion questions as a kid
Atreus: powers?? people?? ice yes that's cool but people no.
Brogan: omggggg what's happening this is really cool powers and other people w/ powers
Kailani: ?? What. *later* I'm basically done w/ all of you. *later* powers. training is important

"This person really wants to be my friend, they just don't know it yet. So I'll let them know it."
-- Brogan when he first met Atreus
