Basic Stats to include:
Elements to include in your character bio:
-Where are you/your family from?
-What did you do during the War?
-What has brought you to New Orleans?
-What is a piece of unfinished business from your character’s past? (People don’t pick up and move with a clean slate. You may have spurned lovers, undefeated rivals, unpaid debts, family conflicts, outstanding warrants, wartime misdeeds, or any number of other baggage. These may be issues you are trying to escape, things you carelessly forgot, or things you actively want to resolve. Knowing these parts of your past helps with character motivation, and they could come back to haunt you later. You can have as many as you like, but everyone should have at least one.)
