Aristotle said character is habitual action. When developing a character in a story being told imagine what habits that person has. What actions do they do every day that define them as individuals? What quirks of action do they go through in a simple act like pouring a cup of coffee? When they get dressed what actions make up their daily routine? Knowing who the character is, what they do and why provide the foundation for believable people to populate your next story.
