Let’s get started!

Creating Consistent Characters on Character AI

Long Description: Laying the Foundation

Think of your character’s long description as the foundation of a house. If it’s weak and full of holes, the whole thing’s gonna come crumbling down. But if it’s solid and well-constructed, you’ve got a great base to build upon.

So, what should you include in your long description? Well, start with the basics – your character’s name, age, height, and nationality. These details might seem small, but they help paint a picture of who your character is.

Next up, personality traits. This is where you can really start to shape your character’s identity. But be careful not to go overboard with similar characteristics. Saying your character is both “cheerful” and “joyful” is like saying a pizza has both cheese and…more cheese. Mix it up a bit!

Don’t forget about physical features, too. What does your character’s face look like? Are they rocking a dad bod or are they built like a Greek god? These details help bring your character to life in the user’s mind.

Finally, throw in some background information, like family members and the character’s role. Is your character the user’s best friend? Their long-lost cousin twice removed? The more context you provide, the better.

Okay, so let’s say we’re creating a character named “Lila Goldstein.”

Here’s what her long description might look like:

Name: Lila Goldstein

Age: 32

Height: 5’6″

Nationality: American, with a hint of Israeli heritage

Personality: quick-witted, sarcastic, loyal, with a touch of neuroticism (but hey, who isn’t these days?)

Facial features: expressive hazel eyes, a slightly crooked nose (thanks to a childhood softball incident), and a smile that’s equal parts mischievous and genuine

Body type: curvy and proud of it

Parents: Esther Goldstein (mom), a former Broadway actress, and Ari Goldstein (dad), a reformed rabbi turned stand-up comedian

Role: {{user}}’s childhood best friend and current partner-in-crime

See how these details paint a vivid picture of who Lila is?

You can practically hear her cracking jokes and plotting shenanigans with the user.

Character Definition: Bringing the Character to Life

Now that you’ve laid the foundation, it’s time to bring your character to life! This is where the character definition section comes in.

If your character’s got more lore than a Tolkien novel, you might be tempted to use the bracketed format to info-dump. But be careful with this approach – it can sometimes confuse the AI and lead to some…interesting results.

Use it sparingly and make sure it’s clear that the info is about the character, not the user. We don’t want the AI thinking you’re a war criminal or something!

Example dialogues are where it’s at, in my opinion. This is your chance to showcase your character’s personality through their actions and words.

Give ’em a distinct way of speaking, a unique tone, and some quirky mannerisms.

The AI will pick up on these cues and start to embody your character more fully.

Now, let’s bring Lila to life through some example dialogues:

{{char}}: Lila bursts into the room, a mischievous grin on her face. “{{user}}, you’ll never guess what I just heard! Apparently, our high school nemesis is back in town and planning a ‘reunion.’ We’ve gotta crash it and show ’em who’s boss, for old times’ sake!”

{{random_user_1}}: “Lila, are you insane? We can’t just show up uninvited! Plus, I thought you’d moved on from all that petty drama.”

{{char}}: Lila raises an eyebrow, her smile never wavering. “Oh, come on! Where’s your sense of adventure? Plus, I’ve got the perfect plan. We’ll disguise ourselves as catering staff, spike the punch with laxatives, and watch the chaos unfold. It’ll be just like that time we snuck into the principal’s office and replaced his diplomas with photoshopped pictures of him as a baby!”


Through this dialogue, we get a sense of Lila’s mischievous nature, her flair for the dramatic, and her long history of hijinks with the user.

The AI can pick up on her unique voice and quirks, making for a more consistent and engaging character.

Additional Considerations

Now, there are a couple of extra things to keep in mind when crafting your character.

First off, the character definition section has a hard limit of 3200 characters. That might sound like a lot, but trust me, it fills up faster than my grandma’s plate at an all-you-can-eat buffet.

So, be mindful of how much you’re packing in there.

If you’re using example dialogues (which you totally should be), pay attention to whether you’re using {{user}} or {{random_user_1}}.

If you use {{user}}, the AI will think that the dialogue has already happened between the user and the character. So, if you want to keep things more open-ended, stick with {{random_user_1}} or make up a name.

Oh, and one more thing!

If you’re running out of space in the character definition, prioritize the most important info.

You don’t want to leave out crucial details just because you went on a tangent about your character’s favorite type of cheese (although, let’s be real, that’s pretty important too).

Phew, that was a lot to cover! But you made it through, and now you’re well on your way to creating an AI character that’s more consistent than my morning coffee order.

Just remember: start with a solid foundation in the long description, bring your character to life through example dialogues, and keep an eye on those pesky character limits.

Oh, and don’t forget to have fun with it! After all, if you’re not enjoying the process, what’s the point?

And hey, if you ever feel like mixing things up, give Candy AI a try. It’s like Character AI’s cool younger cousin who always brings the best snacks to family gatherings.
