Development of Novel Characters

Development of Novel characters - Not everyone is what they seem

Development of novel characters is central to any novel. Some have major parts, others minor, but every character should be there for a reason.

Some of the major characters in your story will be heroes, some villains, some good, some evil, some dim, some clever. Just like all the people you meet in real life, all your characters will have different characteristics, some you will like and others you will dislike. That presents authors with a problem. Like them or loath them, your characters have to be believable.
