Select from this list of Principal Character Archetypes (below) to Jam a new character for your project.
Note: only registered members of this site can participate in a Character Jam. While you can Jam a character at any time, it's best if you have already selected a Story Message Jam in advance. This is because the Character you create should be used to help you sell your story message.
Your character jams are private. They will appear in the 'My Fruit' section of your Dashboard.
