Character Development Questionaire
This is LOOONG, but it's a lot of fun to do! It's an awesome tool for character development. (Ignore the use of "he", the author just used it as a default.) I've omitted and added here and there to have it fit the Warcraft universe a bit better.

EDIT: Shortened considerably! It's probably still too long.

Character name?


Describe his posture. Does he carry himself well? Is he crooked?

Is he in good shape or out of condition? Is he muscularly weak or strong?

How is his health? Any illnesses or conditions? Any physical disabilities?

Is he physically active or sedentary? A fast or slow mover?

Is he clumsy? Awkward? Graceful?

Is he physically tense or relaxed, nervous, controlled?


What are their favorite articles of clothing?

Are their clothes new or old? Homemade, hand-me-downs, expensive?

Do his clothes fit well?

Is he comfortable in what he wears or does he “fight” his clothes?

Does he have to dress a certain way because of his job or position? If so, do his usual clothes fit his real, basic character?


Does he speak in a high or low-pitched voice? When might he be higher than usual? When lower?

Is he a loud or soft-talker?

Is there a wide range in the voice in pitch, volume, and/or quality, or is the voice pretty consistent and even?

Is there an accent? Anything unusual in pronunciation, emphasis, phrasing?

Is the speech clear or muddy? Does he mumble, is he distinct?


Does he think quickly? Slowly? Is he quick-witted? Dull?

Is the character impulsive or deliberate in reaching conclusions? Is he logical, rational, or emotional?

Emotions and Personality

Is he an extrovert, an introvert?

Does he like people?

Does he have many friends? Any close friends?

Is he hot-blooded or cool-headed?

Does he have a narrow or wide range of emotions? Do they show?

Would you say he is basically sensitive or callused?

Is he suspicious, cautious, trusting, or naïve about new people or situations?

In a danger or emergency situation, would he go to it or run away from it?

Is the character basically nervous or calm?

Is he a practical joker? What is his opinion on tricks or jokes played on other people?

Under what conditions could he be harmful or cruel to another person?

Is he a loving person? Is he full of love and giving or rather bound and tight in this area?

Is he capable of relating to others in a loving way? Is a capable of relating to one person in a romantic way?

Wealth, Power, and Influence

Does this person have much money? Does it provide position or respect from others?

Is he generous or selfish with his money and possessions?

Does the character rate high on the pecking order with his household? Town? Area? Nation? World?

Can he command others to do his bidding, by word or manipulation?

To whom is he subservient? Is this submission willing or unavoidable?


What does this character do when he is bored?

What does he do when he's excited or nervous?

What things does he really like to do?

What things does he really hate to do?

What are his leisure activities? Pastimes? Recreations?

Does he play games? What kind?

Does he like to eat or drink? How important to him are food and drink?

Building materials: stone, wood, clay, tile, etc?

Fabrics: silk, wool, linen, etc?

Pieces of furniture?

I may just take these questions and actually make another post in my profiles answering them for my characters. :)
"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."
