I'm bored so I'm going to have a go at making up a character/character building!

Name: Patrick (Paddy for short) McCallat

Age: 15

Interests/Hobbies: Baking (but doesn’t like to admit it), music (mostly classic rock), Reading, Football/AFL (barracks for Bulldogs), watching movies.

Attracted to Girls.

Description: brown wavy hair, Ted (if you don’t know what this is google “teds UK”) style haircut but messy like he doesn’t really care. Brown eyes. white skin (but not pale). Tall, 6’2, well proportioned, not particularly muscly, but not skinny. usually wears nice clothes but not to nice, like a nice pair of jeans, Band T-shirt and flanny, or like nice pants and a shirt. Shy but has a good group of friends so doesn’t appear so, gets confused easily and hates maths. When he talks he’s very quiet and mumbles a lot but tries not to because he finds it annoying (like a bad habit). More on the masculine side of things. Doesn’t swear much but when he does he means it.

Favourite things: food (he loves Asian takeaway, especially Thai), rainy days, a good cake, When hid team wins the footy, Disney (especially the older films), The bands Nirvana and The Rolling Stones, ‘The Hunger Games’ book series. His pet cat ‘Queenie’ (she’s white and fluffy and loves cuddles). his favourite colour is yellow, but like warm yellow like the colour of honey. Smiling.

Things he doesn’t like: annoying people (like the ones who always are in your business), when a recipe doesn’t work, bland foods, violence (he’s a lover not a fighter), overuse of emojis, bad song covers. Crowded places and strangers.

It's a bit one dimensional right now. Elaborate on behaviour, personality and connections

That makes it a bit tricky then! But keep building those characters. You're really good at it!
