When You Create a character in the 41st Millenium There are a List of DOs and DO NOTs and here are a list of things that you should NOT do in the creation of a character in the 41st millenium.

  1. Don't have a Flawless Hero, Some people believe unless your protagonist looks like a child of Persephone, has a genius IQ and a heart of gold, your readers will immediately reject him. The hero must be perfect in every way, because no one wants to read about a character with actual flaws. Well that's Bullshit, only special fucking snowflakes have the flawless invincible card in their Deck. Everyone has flaws, especially chaos and the mortals of the 41st millennium. Especially the slaaneshi's who aspire to seeking perfection are the ones who will hit the slab the hardest.
  2. Don't think there is nothing wrong with a character being virtuous, flawed, . But if you make this virute the defining characteristic of your character, then it is effectively not a character: it is a mere one-dimensional puppet.
  3. Don’t say “He’s like Batman or Leman Russ, Etc” when describing Him or Her.
  4. Don’t Rip the character off of someone else and call it your own, plagiarism isn’t accepted.
  5. Don’t be Edgy, IE forcing yourself to exaggerate something that’s not you; such as just Eating puppies because it seems like it’s Khorn to do.
  6. Don’t come up with an over the top overly defining backstory that prevents growth in character development.
  7. Try not to come up with a sad and Super grimace background, because it comes off as a little cringeworthy especially if all your characters have the same background
  8. Don’t come up with something that makes no sense lore wise without proper justification
  9. Don’t pull a “Following in their Footsteps” Background unless if it’s something for an Imperial guard background that almost everyone has.
  10. Rigidity is DEATH in character creation, Don’t determine their Behavior and Demeanor before the roleplay.
  11. Don’t Write a Character Without Knowing the Fucking LORE OF THE AUGURS OF THE SERPENT & 40k !
  12. Now you know what not to do, So go & Try Hard to make great characters.
