Character Sketch for Jamie Dakota

Watch For The Raven
I found Jamie's last name as I was doing her character sketch so she is now officially Jamie Dakota - here is her character sketch so far.

NOTE: This is a thought I had as I ran across her weakness for colds. JAMIE SEES Doctor he’s a holistic medical doctor; working at a clinic he is impatient with delay... Dr. interested in culture and lore of American Indians he is from the country of India.

My take on Jamie is she fits the character mold for a Plucky Lass 
Everyone loves her, she makes friends easily .
Loyal, but not in a plodding way. She’s adventurous and spirited with loads of talent and wit. She’s a hard worker, but not because she needs to win, she’s more interested in doing a great job just because she wants to. You won’t find her climbing the corporate ladder, more likely she’ll own that charming little gift shop on the corner or she’ll find an independent niche as a journalist or caterer. Whatever she does it will likely involve creativity and a lot of interaction with people because that’s what she does well. 

There we have a great start for Jamie but I will still do an interview with her. I will, however, do a character sketch for the antagonist before I do.  I will have a couple links for great places to find character charts on line for you later. 
Write like the wind.

Love how you've developed the main character. I also like how you used the horoscope to start the process and then round off what you need from her in this story as well as who you might need to round her off as secondary characters. Made me think a bit more on my secondary staff for my story as well.

Thanks Cynnara - it works for me and it does give you more ideas as to the other characters who could either help or trip up your protagonist. Thanks for your kind words.
