Ok today I’m going to be talking about one of my characters or Oc if you will. I plan to do this for the rest of the month so be warned. I love my Oc’s and giving them stories. I don’t know how other people do it but when I create characters, they are usually based on concepts I’ve seen on tv or ideas I get from Pinterest (Like I have a whole pin board that’s just character ideas.)

So, to get into it lets jump in.

Name- Summer Pearl Harris

Age- Seventeen-year-old

Looks- She has almond skin with small freckles around her face, she has brown eyes with curly black hair she is about 5’5  


She is a seventeen-year-old African American. Who lives in a small town in Ohio. She lives by herself since her parents are usually never around and haven’t been around since she was like five years old. She spends most of her time with her older half-brother, James who is more like a parent to her. She was a junior at the high school in her town, but she dropped out when her younger half-sister, Olivia was born. Summer has a long-time boyfriend that she sees only in the summer and on some holidays. His name is Leonardo, but everyone just calls him Leo.

Next on my list of characters is Summer’s half-brother James.  


Name- James Camelo Harris   

Age- twenty-five-year-old 

Looks- He is 6’1 with a honey skin tone. He has brown eyes with short black hair.


James was born to Summer’s dad and his birth mom, a Latina woman who he met at a club. James lived with his mom till he was taken from his mom when he was ten years old. James lived with his dad and stepmom till he was eighteen when he moved out to live with his girlfriend.  They live on the outskirts of the town. James works at the Ice Cream parlor where he also sells information to people.

Howdy Hey! My name is Crislyn Lance, but you can call me Cris. I love reading fantasy books, and fanfics. I love creating characters and studying characters and why authors made certain characters the way they are and how that character moved the story along. I love writing fiction from stories with big dragons to stories about fairy/pixies. I love the feeling of joy I get when I write a fiction story because it allows me to express the ideas that go on in my head after a long day.

4 thoughts on “Characters”

  1. I think that it is important to get descriptions of your characters down on paper, or in this case on a document, so you can be better acquainted with them. And I think that your personal relationship with your characters is always apparent.

  2. I think its really cool that you create characters. Whenever I write a story, I don’t give may details about my characters appearances because I like to leave that up to the reader so they can imagine the character however they want. I do this because whenever I read a book and it talks about a character, I immediately imagine the character and then a little bit later into the story it gave details about what the character looks like and the book is like “blonde hair and blue eyes” while I imagined green eyes and black hair.
