 How to Create a Character Profile *Writers Write -- The IWJ*
The purpose of a character profile is twofold: to assist the writer in creating a character that is as lifelike as possible and to help with continuity issues in the story.
Character profiles are especially helpful for novels which involve several main characters and for stories which use multiple points of view.
For example, fantasy writers can use the character profiles to keep track of factors such as magical abilities, family lineage, spells the character is under, and limitations on the character's power to ensure continuity in the action.

Shakespeare, for example, is epitomized for popularizing many archetypal characters, not because he was the first that we know of to write them, but because he defined those roles amongst the backdrop of a complex, social literary landscape.
Thus, the characters stand out as original by contrast, even though many of his characters were based on previously-garnered archetypes (Shakespeare often borrowed from fables, myths and magic to construct and embellish his plays).
Narrative, fiction written as if it were related to the reader by a single participant or observer.

 Four Fat Chicks -- No One Lives Forever 2 Review
Cate was the first woman to be employed by UNITY in NOLF, and therein lay the crux of the storyline: she was untried, untrusted, and unwelcome in the vulgar boys' club of 1960s espionage activity.
In this iteration, the still not-wildly-competent H.A.R.M. is working with the Soviets on a complex and multitiered world domination program involving, among other things, a strategically insignificant island, a five-star communist hotel, and a clan of fierce female ninjas.
It is disappointing that the developers of NOLF2 chose to replace the voice talent of nearly every major character in the game, including Cate Archer, though I cannot fault them for this; actors are a fickle bunch and there's a possibility that the voice talent from the original was unable or unwilling to return.
