(Another, Very) In-Depth Character Profile
This is a bit embarrassing. I only just realized that the character profile I've been using for the past 10 years is totally different from the one linked here at the Prep! *Blush* This one has just over 120 separate points on it so it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I wanted to share it just in case anyone might find it useful!

It's a bit more multi-purpose (no references to traditional school, movies, sports in school, vehicles), so I've found it especially useful for sci-fi/fantasy, historical writing, and other stuff that's not contemporary fiction.
