#01 Writing Character Background: The Birth of a Hacker

Production Diary #01: Writing the background for the protagonist.

When I began to work on the development of the main character for Hacker Girl, I just had a name and something about her past: Maria was a camgirl.

This was the starting point to write a character that in time, became more complex and compelling.

Main Character Background:

“Burdened with debts, and with an alcoholic and sexist stepfather, Maria was forced to become a camgirl in order to survive.”

Following steps:

  1. Character background.
  2. Naming the character.
  3. Character demography.
  4. Character design.
