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 generator  to 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…

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

Maybe a wyvern? This actually seems to describe friendly dragons in general.

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
