Keep your sketchbook handy and draw any ideas that come to mind. 1. Where is your character from? Did your character grow up somewhere else or did they always live in the same place? Did they grow up in the city or in a log cabin on a mountain? Are they from this planet or another? Are they from a wealthy family or a poor one? Were they educated as a child? Are they an only child? Do they have siblings? 2. Where does your character live? What country, city, or planet does this character call home?
