I just designed a new character. She was meant to do nothing more than show up and direct someone else to a meeting, and before they got there she had a detailed description and the beginnings of an at least partially fledged backstory.
The first time this happened in a Symphony story, it was Rina Dragonaar in The Courtship of Princess Dessler. And that ended pretty well, so I'm rather pleased.
Actually, come to think of it, that's happened two or three times so far in the development of this movement, albeit not with quite the full Rina "OK, I'm here, now where's my trailer?" intensity in the other cases. :)
