Ok... So: I'm working on making a new manga and actually I'm on an official character skins step. I would like to show the skins before manga starts.

And here is my question: what kind of infos should I place under them to not spoil the story but to describe the characters?

I know that such thingies like age, height or hair and eyes color are needed and won't spoil anything... but in some cases I don't thing that race or such would be okay... since at least 3 main characters appear to be 'something else' than in the beginning of the story they seem to be.

I decided to check if you guys have any ideas about that?

So .... can you please help me ^^ ?

PS: Describing weapons and mayor personal things (see: One Piece - Luffy and straw hat) is a good idea?

ooh man, shoot how about.. a tattoo on the neck, or arms full of scars "it's a classic" but what they resemble will keep people guessing... scars, or anything on the body always keep viewers thinking..

That's not what I really mean ... well, for example:

Main female in Netherlay (which will became fantasy manga) called Ayame is:

Sex: Female
Age: 16
Height: 168 cm tall
Sizes: 74,60,84 (another bit complexed one... near few other charas XD)
Weight: 54 kilograms
Blood type: 0+

What more?

(Sorry for not posting art but:
1.: CR lately don't won't to upload my scans
2.: I didn't made a design of this chara with which I would be 100%... or at least 80% confident.... as a good one)

First face art which went 100% well in my sight (I mean she looks like I wanted):

Sex: Female
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Emerald green
Age: 16
Height: 168 cm tall
Sizes: 74,60,84
Weight: 54 kilograms
Blood type: 0+
Personality: Overenergetic type. Have quite incredible knowledge about fables and legends. Sometimes she's spaced out in like her friend Sigelie call it: "her own world". She have that level of braveness which is considered sometimes as stupidness. From time to time becomes very shy but acts then nervous or even agressive.
Weapon: Quite in the beginning - shield and sword
Fighting style: She trained fencing quite long with the friend called Sigelie whose father was captain of town guard. She never won against her one year older friend in fact. Later it'll appear she posses talent in quite different kind of fighting.
Basic history: Her mother passed away giving her birth and father never came back from the war, so in fact she never knew her parents. Raised by grandparents in small village called Hull. From very childhood she's overwhelmed by the stories and legends about adventures and heroes participating in them. On 16th birthday she decides to form an adventurers team and reach the forgotten city Netherlay... but this day happens something she didn't suspect.
Motives: Dream about being world famous adventurer.

What do you think about that??

They're common because....... they're......... good for main character ^^' ?? I dunno but that chara for few reasons seem important to me.

Just wait for Seiran XD. It may be second rank character in this story but it's "common" some way too.... and some other way uncommon ^^'.

About Sigelie I've mentioned. She's also one of main like Ayame and story sometimes would even more focused on her.

Nice ^^. And in fact this character have many secrets (aqnd is not aware of them). In fact I didn't write even half about Ayame.... and nothing about Sigelie XD. Oh about Seiraqn I have her in her common clothes (she'll try to wear clothes more suited for aplace... all is about that she's from far away... you'll see XD.


Sex: Female
Hair: Dark brown
Eyes: Deep brown
Age: 25
Height: 174 cm tall
Sizes: 90,60,90
Weight: 60 kilograms (62 after eating... sometimes ^^)
Blood type: AB-
Personality: Likes to act cool and be picky. Sometimes she ignores not only everyone but in fact everything around. Lightheaded, never thinks about the future... or rather it seems so. She extremely skilled swordsman and her sight itself is enough to scare almost everyone.
Weapon: Byakkuken her katana with 95cm long blade. She's easily able to cut thruu the stone or plate armors with it. Also in good ones group Only Dandare and Sigelie are able to see her strikes at the beginning... but only Dandare is able to block them (later it changes). She's also wearing a weird wakizashi with "seal" sign on sheet and never use it.
Fighting style: Seiran is a great master of 4 Kendo styles and as such at the beginning she's far better even than her student.... Dandare. She's rather never seen using anything more than her sword and bare hands... even soo she's more than enough to beat up whole band of evil guys.
Basic history: She's from far east. We know only that she's some kind of wandering hero and she spend last one-and-half year with Dandare as his Sensei (3rd one and worst one as he say later on). She'll be the one who will twist Dandare in whole affair with Ayame and her journey to Netherlay.
Motives: Rather unknown. She's content if have some good alcochol from time to time and some free time. Rather not interesting things for someone like her.
