Character designs?

I would like some ideas for character designs for my character (no names.)

Priorities:

  • Girl
  • 14-17

Yeah, I have low priorities.

We need more details. Her occupation? Personality?

Boris Koocluts is a 16 year old girl who is currently holding the world record for fattest teen in America. She weighs 683 pounds and does absolutely nothing productive. She sits on her ass all day and night watching porn (sometimes illegal porn if she's in the mood).

Despite her lack of productivity, she maintains a perfect sphere-like figure and even has her own gravitational pull. She is a complete asshole to absolutely everyone who was around her (before she ate them) and whenever someone tries to help her, she tells them to "F*ck off." Or to "Suck it."

Also if she gets in contact with sunlight from the window of her room, she will make a hissing noise and spontaneously combust into piles of burning dog poop.

tl;dr: This is why you shouldn't be vague about things like this.

Not exactly sure why you want other people to invent your own characters for you. If you're so bored of writing that you can't even be bothered to come up with your own characters, you're not going to be able to finish a story.

Why ask people when you can just generate hundreds of characters and throw them into an incoherent story?

I'm not sure if I have any ideas to give you, but you gave me a great idea. Thanks.

Asking others to design a character for you is a dangerous move, especially since you provide very little detail. Creating a character can be an intimate, difficult process - it's not as simple as jotting down a few facts about them before slapping a name and random background on them. They aren't a faceless object whose only purpose is to play their role: they are a unique person with strengths, flaws, worries, and quirks that set them apart from others. You're forming an entirely new being, which requires you to look closely at their different aspects. For instance, their past is extremely important, as it influences their traits and helps form the person they are today. Their appearance is also essential, as humans have unique appearances with different features that help them stand out. 

Because your character will also play a major role in your story, it's best to know them as well as possible so that you aren't constantly questioning what they'd do in different situations. Designing your own character will allow you to share a deep connection with them. Because you know them inside and out, you'll have an easier time writing about them than you would if it were someone else's character. They will fit better in your world and story. Furthermore, you are more familiar with your own plot than we are. You should be able to tell what types of people would be best fit in your world. If you truly value your work, you'll be willing to make time to create your own characters rather than asking other people to do so for you. You're more than welcome to ask for suggestions though. Best wishes.

I have a great idea: Rapist Pedophile. Female rapist pedophiles get so little coverage nowadays. 

Seriously, though, we have no idea what kind of concept you want. If you can't think of the a simple character design, maybe give up writing.
