Character Background Questionaire
« on: March 24, 2011, 06:27:05 PM EDT »

This is by no means required, but is being posted as a tool for you to utilize and help flesh out your character.  Please feel no obligation to use it if you have other plans.  Topic is locked.  We do not need to know all your characters deepest darkest secrets.  This document is for you alone to help flesh the character out in your mind and RP it to the best of your ability.

Character Background Questionnaire
By Doug Stratton
Format taken from Tim Emrick

The following questionnaire is being provided to help players develop and organize background information for their characters. You do not need to answer all of these questions, but the more of them that you can, the more clear the character will be in your mind, and the more in depth role play you will be able to experience in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Appearance

1.   What does your character look like? Race? Gender? Age? Size? Coloration? Attractiveness? Scent? Dress? Do you try to emphasize or hide any of these features?

2.   What other details would someone notice on a closer look? Does your character have any distinguishing marks (birthmarks, scars, etc.)?

3.   Does your character have a distinctive way of speaking, mannerisms or other memorable behavior?

Birth & Family

1.   Where and when was your character born? Do you know your character

An Alternate Character Background ((Submitted by GoFenris))
« Reply #1 on: April 05, 2011, 05:29:20 PM EDT »

This is based off of the Fate RPG System (which is a free download btw), with a little bit of Central Casting: Heroes for Tomorrow thrown in:

1.) What early events shaped your life? Was it happy, sad, tragic? Did you grow up in a city, country or...? Briefly explain your earliest memories?

2.) Who was your first mentor? Did you even realize it at the time? Was he/she honest and hard working or a thief and crooked? Maybe a little of both? How important was he/she to you and what did you do together?

3.) What kind of friends did you have? Were you a group of street toughs? Misunderstood bunch trying to stay outta trouble or always looking for it? Just a bunch of country kids looking for laughs? What were some of your adventures?

4.) When did you feel the pull of going into space? Did you always have it or did someone inspire you? Was it just a job or a sense of wanderlust? Maybe you couldn't wait to get off planet? Explain what your first trip into space was like and why you took it?

5.) What kind of teenage years did you have? Driven to be the best or simply procrastinating the onset of adulthood? Who did you pal with? What experiences did you have? Explain a major event that happened in your teenage years or, explain how they drifted by like a dream of friends, family and/or lovers?

6.) What happened to make you do what you do? Was it forced upon you? Did you need a job? Simply bored or driven by a higher calling? How did you end up in this mess? Explain what kind of person you are?

7.) If you have answered all questions with some depth you should have at least to aspects or facets of your character that stand out for each part. Example (Answering Question 2 about a mentor):

My grandfather died tragically when I was very young. But before he died, he worked long days as a civil engineer in one of Corellia
