Persona is a character development app that will help you to know each of the characters of your story. Instead of allowing them to evolve as you write, with Persona you can purposefully develop the characters of your story using psychological principles that influence the different motivations of a personality. Persona presents you with 32 archetypes along with a description of their personality traits, virtues, and flaws, and how they interact with other personalities.
With Persona you can:
•Explore the relationships and interactions between
each of your characters.

and 64 styles.
•Create Smart Groups of characters based on attributes

eyes to their hobbies or occupation.
Whether your character is a brainiac talking fish or an outcast orphanage owner, Persona helps you explore how each one’s unique psychology and background influences their dealings and dialogue.
