Random Character Creation Generator:
By ~Dreamnorn

Looking to create an awesome character? Are you thinking of a story, but need another player in the mix? Or are you just bored? Either way, welcome to Dreamnorn’s Create-A-Character Guide! In here, you get to randomly roll a character which you can use for a story, comic, roleplay, or whatever you truly want.

Firstly, we need supplies…
a) A coin
b) A d4
c) A d10 and a percentage die
d) Pencil and paper to mark the traits

Got all that? Good. If you don’t have the necessary dice you need, click the link in the description for number generation.

NOTE: You can use this to help you create a character if you want. If you already know certain things, like what species it will be or what gender it is, feel free to skip the questions.

Now let’s get cracking!


This one is easy enough. Flip a coin to determine whether your character is male or female. Heads for a boy, tails for a girl.


For this one, roll a d4 or set the number generatorto a minimum of 1 and maximum of 4.

1 – Human
2 – Animal (you can determine which)
3 – Mythical Creature (dragon, alien, chimera, etc.)
4 – Mythical Human Creature (vampire, cyborg, elf, etc.)

The Epic List of Traits:

For this one, roll a percentage die and a d10 or set the number generator to a minimum of 1 and maximum of 100. This will determine some of the defining personality traits of your character. Repeat 3-7 times, for many possibilities! Of course, once you are given the basic traits you can expand upon them to flesh out your character as much as you like.

NOTE: If you get conflicting ones (for example, “selfish” and “charitable”), then you can reroll for the second one you got. That means that if you rolled “selfish” first, the trait won’t go away. Also, if you roll one trait twice, just reroll.

Now roll. Your character is now…

1 – Loyal
2 – Impulsive
3 – Intelligent
4 – Cheerful

My Little Challenge:

Finished rolling your character? Excellent, excellent! Now that you’re all situated, you’re ready to develop him/her more for whichever story, roleplay, or comic you want.

But, before you go, I have a little challenge for you…

Now that you’ve randomly rolled a character, I humbly request you test him/her out. Write a little story centering around them, draw a comic or picture, or record a roleplay you had with them and post it on DeviantART. I would love to see what you come up with for this character which probably (literally) came out of the blue!
I don't know if this is the most original idea in the universe or if anyone's done this before, but enjoy. XD

Eventually I think I'll post up an example as part of the deviation itself and (maybe) make a visual meme for this. If there are any redundancies (like total synonyms) or other traits you suggest I add, please let me know!

I created a character appearance generator.  I linked back to you (I hope.  It was one of my first links ever) to give anybody who views my thing a character personality thing. :)
It was easier than I thought it would be. :) happy happy happy

This is really helpful! I'm glad you made it! It helped make the basis of my character. I'll link a picutre of her later so you can see what I came up with. Thanks again! :meow:

I got a dangerous, shallow, silly, ruthless male cat. I guess I've found the villain for my next Warriors fanfic. Now I just need to find a suitably villainous name that hasn't already been used in Warriors canon.

I got a female, human character who is bold, energetic, playful, rude, and has a disability/disorder (I decided to make her Bi-Polar, I believe it fits in a way. :) )

I don't usually use these types of things, but I'm writing a story for Creative Writing class, and I'm absolutely stumped as of what to write about. :/ This really helped with some ideas! Thank you, and I'll be sure to post the story once it's done. :D

I've got a girl shapeshifter on my hands who is Unlucky, Treacherous, Persistent, Forgetful, Well-Behaved, Intelligent, Depressed, Mischeivous. LOL. She'll be fun to work with. :) Thanks for coming up with this!
Dreamnorn Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I'm happy you like your character! ^^ I was giggling as I read that list of traits; it sounds like your shapeshifter is going to be quite a handful. I wonder how you could play with someone who's both well-behaved and mischievous... the possibilities are limitless!

If/When you do anything with her, I'd love to see it. Thanks for using my generator!

I got a female Wolf who is Secretive, Relaxed, Charming, Lucky, Dainty, Mysterious. ; u ; I love her already. Im going to do a picture and maybe a story >w<
Dreamnorn Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
(Sorry for the late reply, I've been in school.)

Woaaaah, she sounds interesting, like the kind of feminine character with a hidden past who can always get what she wants. Or, at least, that was what I first thought when I read that list of traits. ^^ Have you come up with a name for her?

If/When you do a picture and/or a story for her, I'd love to see it. c: I'm glad you liked my generator!
MurderousMusic Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Student General Artist
I have a picture done for her. I still neeed to finish the story :3

Her name is Vermage. [ Ver-mah-gee]

(Sorry for the late reply, I've been in school.)

I'm glad you've been enjoying my character generator. ^^ You make cat characters -- I'm automatically interested. It sounds like Relataz is a pretty interesting sort of guy: a great protagonist with a deep and driven character.

If you ever draw or write something for the plot you have with him, I'd love to see it! ^^

Could a furry character count in the animal species?
Dreamnorn Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
That's a tough call, considering furries are a mix of human and animal characteristics. I would count them under "mythical humanoids", but do whatever suits you. :)

Oh my god I love this. After work today I'm totally doing this.

I love generators. Though I often make female characters. I tryed it now and I got a 1 on the random number gen. But decided again and got a 2 so I making ANOTHER female character ^^ And She's got the energetic trait.
Dreamnorn Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Well, if female characters are more your speed, you can skip the gender-determining step altogether and move on to the interesting parts. :3

Ooh, energetic females! Out of curiosity, what other traits did you roll for her?
piyoh99 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Didn't decide yet.
But I just got Inventive. must be pretty lucky! ^^ I may upload her. When I draw her. I'll tell ya when.

You know, that one that's sort of.... sick?
Dreamnorn Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
...OH THAT ONE. The one with the psychotic creator who asks you to beat him to death with a golf club?

Yeah, it's pretty sick. But... strangely fun. And, actually, it had a lot WORSE language before I edited the nasty words out. :XD: So be thankful you have the censored version, dude.

I'll be looking out for your next journal. :D

Yusss, it IS strangely fun!


Thanku :D

Urr... where's the uncensored version? I just want to take a peek :XD:

Whoa, check out you and your awesome ideas! I'm all over this, Dream. I got my little bro interested too, but he's doing summer homework. (What's that he's reading? The Song of Roland? I had to read the Scottish Chiefs before sophomore year...)

Dawwwh, thanks. xD I'm glad you like the idea. Hope you have fun with it!
