Creating a character can be an intimidating task. Feel free to use a character you have already created if you’re not ready to make a brand new one. You’re not locked in to using this character forever, you will be able to modify your character or submit new characters later on.
Think about your favorite tropes. What kinds of characters do you enjoy reading about or watching on TV? Is there a way you can mix and match traits from your favorite media characters to create something entirely new to fall in love with? Please do not use any recognizable characters or symbolism from other media when creating your character’s design and backstory. Borrow, don’t steal!
Consider trying something new! What kind of character would challenge your drawing skills? What kind of character would react interestingly to being thrown into a world they’ve never encountered before?
When you go to create your character for the PaperDemon ARPG, you will be asked the following questions. You will also be asked for a portrait of your character! Please only use art that you yourself have created, or that someone else has given you written permission to use.

Ela grew up in the border town of Ashvale. Her family were all hunters, and she learned at a young age how to step silently through the woods to track even the most evasive prey. Her skill with a bow is unmatched.
Just after her 17th birthday, Ela saved her brother from a boar attack. In the process, he lost his leg. He would never be able to hunt again. Her brother’s bitter anger over the incident drove Ela to leave town. Since then, she has traveled across the land-- a renowned tracker with a reputation for never losing a target.
