I have this one character, Wilton Thurlow, who I wanted to be the ‘old wise man,’ because I just felt like I just had to have one. But that may have been a bit cliché, so I added a funny characteristic to him: he likes strawberry jam.
But as I continued, I came up with another idea: for him to also be a spy.
That way, adding characteristics and stuff to characters to make them not so bland, can make them more unique and interesting.
