I am a writer and I want to learn how to create a realistic characters for my books. I have learned The Big 5 Model, but I don't think that's enough to fully describe someone's character.

What models / classifications / methods can you recommend to easily but realisitcally create a character which encompasses:

  • His traits (The Big 5 or something else)
  • His dreams and how they relate to traits
  • His fears and how they relate to dreams and traits
  • They way they speak / react / act and how it relates to their trais, fears and dreams
