    I just realised I was spelling Characters wrong, please forgive me...
    Here is a site that has multiple resources for building characters.

    The reason I put all these character sites on new posts is to promote feedback on the good & bad of each.

    This one has so many sites linked in it's not practical to list each separately. Suffice it to say there are many resources.

    There is name generators, persona generators and even story generators as well as articles on character building.

    You might want to give this page a look-see. It may help you out of a dilema.:banghead:
