I get a lot of complaints that my other Character Profile Form is too long, but thorough. So for you lightweights (lol), I shortened the profile to key essential things every good character designer should know about their characters. This form is also good for side characters, or minor characters in your story.
If you find this helpful, and use it, please link back to the original.
A big thanks to kevintheradioguy for recovering this old damaged file.

Okay what the heck @_@ >,< stupid DA. They're always updating things and ruining stuff...
It won't let me make it downloadable now, nor will it let me view my own original file! So. I guess it's just friggin gone?? >,< Sorry, I'll edit it and notify my watchers when I can get it up and running again. Sorry for the inconvenience. You can follow the link to the longer version of the form for now, and just edit out what you don't need.

I never knew giving a full background of the character could be so draining, and pleasantly so.
Thanks for the fun exercise! It made me realize that maybe my character would look good as a comic. I swear, I'm seeing DC and Marvel here somewhere.

Poor man ;c first time he fell in love the girl was killed by an assassin sent to target him before they got in a real relationship (medival setting).
Since then he's scared and lonely. But he's got his apprentice Collin now who is like his son! ^^

I didn't even know virgins applied to men too. Thought there was another word.

Thanks! I think this if better for me, as my planned stories are more... short, funny(or at least trying to be) one-offs and comics, not long stories. Plus, most of them doesn't really have any "interesting" backstories other than growing up in a more-or-less-regular family...
