Character Template: Physical

The world of your book is a very visual one so it is a good idea to know how your character looks and acts. Your characters appearance affects the assumptions made about him and how he is treated both by other characters and the reader.

This character template is designed for people – both human and nonhuman – but can be modified for cases when the character is a group with similar features (like a small village). Feel free to share in the Comments section any additions or modifications you make – your insights might be helpful to others!
