Character Concept Questions from the Book.
Is your character a member of a faction?
The government? The military? What
does he do in that organization? How
does he serve? In what capacity? Is he
experienced? A veteran? A neophyte?
If your character is not a member of any
of the elements you brought into the world
via world burning, what the hell is doing
here? If he’s an outsider, what ties him
to this conflict? Who are his family? His
friends? How are they entangled in the
fate of this world?
What does your character want in this
struggle? What does he hope to gain?
What is he willing to sacrifice? How far
will he go to get what he wants?

students, mentors and allies. Who are

Build your character into the conflict. Embrace it.

that’s part of the thrill.
