Character Profile Template

Character Profile Template, within the Milanote app

The ideal template for writing fictional characters

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.

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. To learn more, check out our guide to creating compelling characters.
