How to create a character the easy way

Pardon me if I've done this before.  I actually started making a whole new blog on writing a character, and I was going to link back to a character generation chart I stole from a role playing game written by J. Michael Straczynski.

Then I discovered that I didn't actually have the darned thing.  Oh well.

If you ever wanted to know how I created my characters, well, this is the short version.  After a while, they just sorta start taking on a life of their own.

I'm going to expand the list tomorrow, and go into much more detail.
