I came up with this personality generator to help my players when roleplaying their characters. There are two lists - one with positive character traits and the other with an equal number of negative traits. You will receive one of each. Ignore results that you feel are contradictory. Write them down on your character sheet. Pick one to be the dominant trait and mark it as such (with an asterisk - no asterisks indicate traits with equal weight). Then refer to your traits during play if you get stuck for what your character would do.

If you want a slightly more complex personality chose another trait from either list as your "Mask" trait. This is the trait you try to show other people most of the time. Your Mask could also be a social or professional role (e.g. prince, samurai, cop, cowboy, etc.). Your Positive trait will override your Mask when they conflict. But when you are under heavy stress, instead of acting according to your mask or Positive trait, you act according to your Negative Personality trait. Optionally, you can add more than one of each trait though I recommend using the least number possible for your character concept.

Synistar's Random Personality Generator

5 Random Personalities
<sgdisplay iterations="5">[main]</sgdisplay>

I came up with this personality generator to help my players when roleplaying their characters. There are two lists - one with positive character traits and the other with an equal number of negative traits. You will receive one of each. Ignore results that you feel are contradictory. Write them down on your character sheet. Pick one to be the dominant trait and mark it as such (with an asterisk - no asterisks indicate traits with equal weight). Then refer to your traits during play if you get stuck for what your character would do.

If you want a slightly more complex personality, choose another trait from either list as your "Mask" trait. This is the trait you try to show other people most of the time. Your Mask could also be a social or professional role (e.g. prince, samurai, cop, cowboy, etc.). Your Positive trait will override your Mask when they conflict. But when you are under heavy stress, instead of acting according to your mask or Positive trait, you act according to your Negative Personality trait. Optionally, you can add more than one of each trait, though I recommend using the least number possible for your character concept.

Here are a couple examples:

Kaylee:

  • Positive: Optimist*
  • Negative: Dependent
  • Mask: none

Han Solo:

  • Positive: Brave
  • Negative: Selfish*
  • Mask: Rogue
