Character Advice -- Are these well rounded?

I just finished writing out character profiles.

Are these characters well-rounded? Do you relate to them? Anything to add?

I’d love any advice you guys have to offer as I want to make my characters realistic in a high school setting. These characters are written after mine and my friends’ experience in high school to avoid excessive, commonplace clichΓ©s.

Audrey was definitely not considered sexy or β€œhot”, but she was undoubtedly pretty. With olive skin, big doe-eyes, and the face shape to pull of short hair, nobody ever dared mutter the words β€œugly” around her.

She’s one of the least-scary looking people you’ll meet. Even her scowling looks sarcastic and her β€œRBF” is non-existent.

Deals with clinical depression and anxiety that’s hereditary in the family. Because of the commonplace of mental illness in her household, the severity of hers is often overlooked.

She’s very naturally friendly regardless of personal perceptions. This, however, gets her in difficult situations as she wants to be the one help people with problems and be a shoulder to cry on. Doing this creates a massive burden for her to carry.
Pretty talented at most things of an artistic nature. Isn’t as impressive of a range as Emma, but has a very unique, story-telling voice that wins crowds over just as much as Emma’s.

Extremely empathetic and often absorbs people’s emotions. Knows she’s extremely emotional, but often hides this part of her to avoid being viewed as a β€œbleeding heart”.

Even with anxiety in certain social situations, she’s completely unaffected by stage-fright.

Emma Hatten stuck out like a sore thumb. Nearly everyone she’d walked by had caught a glance of her. It was hard not to, especially when she dragged around a group of her red-headed brothers in public.

She was certainly pretty, just often overlooked. She was a younger senior with bright red hair. Considered a diva and an over-achiever (due to her placement on the cheer team, top choir, every musical, etc.), most guys don’t even bat an eye at Emma.

Often feeling naturally looking with excessively curly hair and defined freckles, Emma spent most of her junior high fixing herself up to be seen and to fit social quos.

Jason is a very good-looking guy. Emma, his close friend, often compares him to Antonio Brown as they share very similar facial shape and charismatic smile. Even with the big frames obscuring his face from others, his style and look is very fresh and clean.

Jason’s often surrounded by people as he is extraordinarily charming and funny. He’s one to laugh at a joke, keep a joke going, and cheer on the class clowns.

Ethnicity: African-American

Food: hamburger :hamburger:

Fashion Preferences

  • Ripped jeans
  • Zip-ups
  • Backward hats
  • Earrings

  • May even pull out the occasional bow tie


Jason is the friendliest guy. He’s the one that knows just about everyone, talks to every guy on the sports teams, and is usually the class clowns sidekick.

Regardless of the social attention, Jay would never sacrifice his personal standards or morals for β€œclout”. If his group is disrespecting someone he loves (like his sister Jacki or friend Miles) he’s more than okay picking up his stuff and leaving.

Miles is a decent looking guy with deep grey eyes. He’s the living proof that appearance isn’t everything. With an attractive face and a flippant personality, he’s the kid that sits in the back of the classroom and receives zero attention.

He typically doesn’t care too much for school and shows it, often scaring away girls. He sleeps continuously in his classes, ignores his peers, and only talks to his band-mates, Jason and Eric.

Ethnicity: Polish, German


Strengths: observant, blunt, realistic, smart, sympathetic, good-intentioned
Weaknesses: judgmental, insensitive at times, mysterious/suspicious, inflexible


Parents: Brian Lynch & Rowan Lynch (deceased)

Fashion Preferences

  • Flannels
  • Hoodies to pull over head
  • Joggers
  • Throw in a key chain or something to make it look β€œnice”


Has a huge surgery scar on his chest after the car crash. The car hit them head on, swerving in the wrong lane, killing his mother on impact. The seat slammed into him as he was sitting behind her, and fractured his ribs. He had to get a rib-plating surgery to set titanium plates in and left a scar across his chest.

Struggles with the loss of his mother even if six years ago. He wishes he could blame himself as he knows there was nothing he could’ve done to change the outcome – and that hurts more. His mother got the car crash only seconds after a red light turned green, looking back at Miles and squeezing his knee. Having her grey eyes, he often revisits the car crash scene by merely looking in the mirror.

His dad loved Rowan (Miles’ mom) more than anything. They fell in love in college, married at 21, handled a miscarriage, and then had Miles. Miles wouldn’t mind if his dad moved on – it’s inevitable – but his dad doesn’t feel the same.

Despises alcohol because of a drunk driver that killed his mom.

I think they’re very thought out. I myself relate and have most things in common with Audrey. kinda weird how similar we are actually.
