How Many Background Characters Are 'Needed'? + Drop Characters You’ve Made! (LL)

I know this sounds like a stupid question- but how many background characters are needed? I feel like it’s such a stupid question but I honestly, I don’t wanna waste my time when a certain scene comes up and I have to make background characters…

If you wanna drop background characters you’ve made (In LL) then sure! I’d love to use them. Just list their features and a photo. :heart:


Ink or LL ?

But to answer your question, I have no idea either :laughing: I try to start off my story by creating at least 5 males and 5 females but I always end up adding at least 10 more just so the reader isn’t seeing the same ones over and over. If it’s a special position such as a reporter or a judge etc then I’ll create a specific character for that.

It really depends on the scene, like if your character is in a club you’ll need more background characters than if you’re in a school for example…
If you want, you can use my details as well :grin:
mm's ll details


@episode_mm @KylieJay

Yeah! I agree. I’m gonna make 10 females, 10 males & then occasionally change their clothes if it comes to a certain scene.

& thank you for your characters! I just finished making them. @EtherealWitch @KylieJay @ananya.episode @episode_mm can’t wait for more :crazy_face:

Heaven &’ Mercedes are foster sister. Also Heaven &’ Jacques are a couple been dating since 9th grade. And Naomi is the girls best friend. All 3 girls live together.

She isn’t afraid to speak what’s on her mind. She loves to have a good time, and she could also make some rebellious choices that won’t end up good. But if you get on her bad side, you will wish you never did. She always wears the latest fashion.

Doesn’t care much for drama, but will stand up if you mess with somebody he loves. He looks like a rude dude but once he speaks he’s a sweet heart. Show affection towards us girl whenever and wherever. Only has about 3 close friends.

She’s a bad a** female, always in some type of drama, doesn’t care what people think about her. She has a bad temper. The scar on her nose was a result of a very very bad child hood. Has a job nobody knows about… has a cold heart and doesn’t care about anybody, only Heaven, Naomi &’ Jacques. She is bisexual.

The mother of the friend group. She is body Positive and try’s to help others with their confidence. Doesn’t like drama and tries to solve the problem as fast as possible. Don’t like to party but once she has a few shots in she is a goofy and fun person to be around. Loves to take pictures. Always wearing a headscarf because of her curly hair.
