I think it’s an interesting thought, to recognise and even inflict situations on our characters that make them act completely out of character. We strive really hard to ensure consistency with all our characters, I fret over it constantly, trying to ensure their features, attire, and behaviours are consistently consistent! But doesn’t it make for really believable characters when they act completely out of character because ‘of something’ ? I think it makes them more rounded. The hard part is working out what would make them react like that!
I would love to know what makes some of your main characters act out of character, if you have a moment, please leave a comment below as this particularly fascinates me. 🙂
