This chapter defines what should be done in “building” a character, not only literally setting the scene, but also establishing their appearance and attitude in a certain plot. It gives a few scenarios on how characters are made, and what introductions should be given in order for a certain reader to imagine at that very instant what an author is trying to point out.
