About stock characters 😐

You’ve literally seen evidence of some people who didn’t know randomiser existed. That could be the same case for other authors. I literally only ever stumbled on randomiser by accident. Besides that, some people like using stock characters and prefer using them over the randomiser. There is absolutely no point in feeling frustrated over BACKGROUND CHARACTERS (apart from the group of authors who use stock characters as mains).

Maybe they are just really committed to their preferred clothing store. :joy:

To prove how easy it is to - not even using a generator - just click random stuff and move on with your life. I closed my eyes and picked different features at random. Ngl it turned out pretty well, might do it more often.


So what are we naming him guys? You guys should try too

I tried that a couple of times as well and got pretty nice characters :ok_hand::two_hearts:

Also, his name should be Jason :woman_shrugging:

Does anyone feel sad for the stock characters tho?
They just exist and get transformed into other people, they don’t have stories of their own
I might just start writing a story about all of them (a parody)

I don’t mind stock characters in the background, personally, but I think they do run the risk of calling attention to themselves. A background character probably shouldn’t be all that distracting, so if you are using “Rose” in your background and keeping her outfit stock as well, you run the risk of some people’s eyes being drawn to her in a way that probably isn’t positive.

It bothers me when they are major, named characters. If the main character’s friends and love interests are stock characters in stock clothing, that is odd to me. I have yet to see an MC that was stock, but I also didn’t think I’d ever see a stock love interest… until I did.

That sounds awesome. “You are a digital ghost who only exists on an app for the purpose of being transformed into someone else. What happens when you find yourself able to break character for the first time?” :sweat_smile:

Oh… I didn’t know they were called stock characters. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever used a default character as a background character in any of my stories, but some authors do. I don’t really know why authors choose to use the default characters, but they probably have their reasons. It could be laziness :woman_shrugging:t4:

Yes, that is pretty weird because they are supposed to be fully customized in my opinion.

I don’t really like it either. Besides, making characters and outfits are fun! Why would they just leave them in default? :thinking:
