Creating a character profile is a great way to map out a fictional character's life. It's where you define your character's backstory, appearance, traits, goals and flaws—everything you'll need to successfully place them in your story.

The perfect way to bring your characters to life

Round-out your characters by giving them a personality that stretches beyond the story itself. Some aspects of their personality won't make it into the story, but will help to inform the decisions that they make. Once you've imagined your characters, you can map the relationships between them to understand them from a different perspective.

Use this template alongside the Story Map and Story Outline templates to further refine the vision for your novel.
