Original Character Challenge by Enthusiastic Fish
*Issued by K9Lasko*
The "Original Character" Challenge
Creating compelling characters is an important -- and often difficult -- aspect of writing. Your challenge is to bring an original character to life within an NFA story.
... must play a main role throughout the story, but does not need to be the only main character.
... can be either a protagonist or an antagonist, or a little bit of both.
... may be involved with canon NCIS characters in any way you choose (e.g. somebody's significant other, coworker, family member), or they may be distant from canon characters (e.g. witness, suspect, guy on the street).
Judging will primarily be based on the quality of your original character-- and supplemented by the quality of the surrounding story and character interactions.
