Bios can give characters depth and help bring them to life. These detailed documents cover many aspects of a character, including their physical characteristics, their backstory, their motivations and their evolving role within the game. It is quite possible that a good chunk of the information within a bio may not be used in the game, but that’s not the point. A comprehensive character bio gives all involved in a game’s design an insight into that character and their role in the game world.
Sample to follow soon.
