Characters: physical characteristics

In the realm of storytelling, a character's physical quirks and features are not just mere descriptions; they are the silent narrators of their life's story. These details can hint at a character's past struggles, their emotional resilience, or even their societal status. A limp could tell of a battle survived, a scar might be the mark of a past tragedy, and even the way a character's eyes squint can reveal their disposition towards the world. Physical particularities, therefore, are not just to embellish a character but to deepen their essence, making them resonate with readers on a more intimate level.
