Do you have an awesome character design, but no ideas for a backstory or abilities? Do you have an idea for a character, but not sure how to develop the idea into a complete character? Perhaps I can help, I've come up with a unique commission idea where I can apply my writing experience into helping you develop your characters from less of an idea or undeveloped designs into a character that feels more complete and appeals more to others. I have a lot of experience in creating fantasy or sci-fi based characters, but I'll also take a shot at creating more realistic characters as well. For this unique venture, I'll be asking $5 per character for characters you may have with an existing design or detailed description for me to help with their backstory and abilities, and $10 per character for complete characters based on ideas you present to me. I will be using this character template to help organize information about your new character and their traits:
Date of birth:
Place of birth:
Weapons: (If any)

Apple was raised by her father for much of her childhood, her mother having died when she was three. A few years after her mother died, her father took her into the mountains to get away from the corrupt neighborhood they’d lived in before. There in the mountains, he taught her everything he knew about machinery as well as skills useful for mountain living. She soon became interested in computers and as well, finding ways to use Viridite to combine magic and technology. The mountain they lived on wasn’t too far from a city at the base of the mountain, their home being a twenty-minute drive to get to either place. When Apple was fourteen, her father died from a hunting accident one winter. She was devastated, and for a long time, she withdrew from the world, not wanting to see anyone else or do anything. However, she finally dedicated herself to moving on and was able to make a living for herself, opening a workshop in the city. She lives alone, but hopes to meet someone to share her life with, even if it’s not exactly the way she expected it to be.
