How to Design complex characters using core beliefHow to Design complex characters using core belief8 years ago in Editorial More Like This
A character is basically formed by three things: Personality, Beliefs, History
After designing the character's story and personality, what will help them stay in character is designing the layers of their core beliefs.
The key thing is, these core beliefs are never, ever spoken by the character themselves. They just behave in this belief like it's normal and not even think it's there.
Of course you can still choose to have them say it, they will just be a simpler open book type character. Or say it partially hiding its true statement, you can also use a character's core belief statement to make it a story statement if you see fit.
A core belief system is the thing that will make the character see the world around them differently from one another; thus making their judgement and decisions differently as well.
Everyone (real people) operates this way. Core belief can be formed as early as babies. So watch out of the kids.
After the first layer of core belief is formed, the

"It wasn't my intention, to give birth to a mudblood A demon-child But he's not a demon. If anything, he's more human than beast. And I love him with all my heart ."
Those beautiful words resonated softly in Karlee's slightly-elven ears. His amber eyes though slightly misty were lively and alert, in a sense smiling at the memory.

His pasty skin was given a light golden hue as light filtered past the leaves and branches, giving him an almost angelic appearance.

You try to breathe, but you're barely breathing,
You can't think clearly; you can barely speak.
Your mind is filled with needless thoughts.
Your cheeks are red and feverish...
You know what you must do,
But you can't bring yourself to do it.
Instead you jump into a thousand distractions...
Mindlessly seeking the thrill of the 'anything',
You cringe at the progress of time on the clock.
And with lips gone dry from an internal hell-fire
You continue to evade what you cannot face...

UntitledOnce upon a timeUntitled4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
There was a girl
She had no friends
Just a family
Who didn't seem to care a bit
Not a single bit
She said not a word
Not a single phrase
She just spent her days
Drawing and drawing
As she grew older
She became more depressed
Since no one could see her
Not that it mattered
She cries to sleep at night
If she cries where no one is
Will someone ever hear?
If someone did
Would they stay
Or go away?
Like the rest who knew her
When she wanted to cry
She held it in
And waits for the rest
When no one's looking
Where no one shall hear her voice at all
She continues drawing
She's tired of crying
She's tired of lying
She's tired of wearing this mask
But she still does
So no one shall know
The pain she's hiding
Through her hardships
She's still her stoic and nostalgic self
She couldn't change who she was
She was like this from the start
People tried to paint her in their own way
She still remained the same

What is received is needed more
Eternal longing I can't ignore
Money and gold is what I need

Resilience to work hard labour

Corrupting love to ravish lust

How can I repay you, brother mine?
How can I expect you to forgive?
Clinging to the past, I shed our blood
And shattered your chance to live
Though I knew the laws, I paid no heed
How can I return your wasted breath?
What I didn't know has cost you dear;
For there is no cure for death
Beautiful mother, soft and sweet
Once you were gone we were not complete
Back through the years we reached for you
Alas, it was not to be
And how can I make amends
For all that I took from you?
I led you with hopeless dreams
My brother, I was a fool
Don't cry for the past now, brother mine
Neither you nor I are free of blame
Nothing can erase the things we did
For the path we took was the same
How could I expect to call you wrong?
How could you be blamed for what we've done?
Both of us were fools in our desires
As we flew too close to the sun
Beautiful mother, soft and sweet

Staring at nothing at all
Are you okay?
Is there something wrong with you?
You stay mute
And just stare
With your frown on your face
And your hands pressing against your ears
As if you don't want to hear a single sound
What did you have in your mind
What were you thinking?
What's this plot in your head?
You're just insane
And you're thinking nothing at all
As time continues
You continue to stare
You grow a smile across your face
And start to burst out with laughter
You're truly insane aren't you?
Your laughter dies down
As if you read my thoughts
You read my mind as if it was an open book
Stillness overcomes the room
Not a single sound from you was heard
All that was heard
Was the ticking of the clock
Oh, if time can only stop
And rewind itself back to what made you like this
Or were you like this from you

Made for her
She didn't want to be like this

Planted a seed
That made her believe
That she'll always be alone
That she'll never be loved
That she'll never find love
That she'll be like this

A girl who's misunderstood
By the unknown faces around her
She's a shattered mirror
She's a puzzle
With all her beliefs
With all her thoughts
She enclosed herself
She locked herself away
Since she thought she was truly a 'wolf'
But it was safer inside
But it wasn't
She's still surrounded
After the days
After the years
She became more intimidated
She had no courage
But it's not gone
There's still a light
There's still hope
But without support
She can never find it

I sat up and looked around my dark room, then glanced at the LED display of my alarm clock. It read 2:15am. I sighed and put my head in my hands, knowing it wouldn't be easy getting back to sleep.
So, I pulled off the covers, got up, and went of to the closet and picked out a random shirt to put on. After I had pulled it on, I went out into the small living room of my apartment. Walking across the the room to the kitchen, I noticed the door to the second room, the one I used as an office, was ajar.
This was strange, because I had made it a habit to shut the door every time I left the room. I walked over over, opened the door, and flipped on the lights, and looked everything over.
This room was my life. My computer, electronic devices, art supplies, CD and DVD collections, video game
