This is the bio sheet that I use for all of my characters. It was written back in 2005 for a RPG, I've changed a lot of things since then and while I was doing so, I thought "why not share this with everyone?" - so here it is.

:bulletred: Try to avoid one word answers wherever possible, elaborate on what you've written.

:bulletred: When uploading your bio, it might be nice to use a preview image of the character
