-What is a original character? It's a fan-made character someone usually makes for a book, show, game, etc that is used as a means to "interact" with the main characters of a book, show, game, etc. Unfortunately, some people get this wrong and their character/self-insert may become a Mary/Gary Sue.
-What is a Mary/Gary Sue? Well....they have the following traits:
-The plot of the book, show, game, etc goes THEIR way (If this only briefly mentions a canon character and is more oc-centric, it's usually ok)
-They have NO weaknesses
-Any and all characters are attracted to them
-They have a TRAGIC past
-They are a long lost relative or are the long lost lover/girlfriend/boyfriend to a character or more
-They die a TRAGIC death
-Every good guy and bad guy likes or loves them
-Immortal, can bring people back from the dead
-Is a vampire/werewolf/fairy/princess/dragon/prince/god/goddess/zombie/unicorn, etc OR all the above!
-Often have a very over-used name
-The canon characters are ooc (out of character)
-This list is too painful to write more, but I'm sure you get the idea.
-Creating your character, Starting traits-
What is their name and/or nickname? If you name your character something like Sakura...go back to the name board! Also, do NOT match names with personalities!
Their age? Try not to make them YOUR age and birth date!
Height and Weight? If you don't describe these, often people will assume this is a self insert of YOU and may assume that you are VERY fat. So make this believable.
Species? Don't hybridize your favorite characters. Otherwise, they'll just end up a BLOB with eyes over here, a mouth over there, and twitching, useless limbs.
Hair color? PLEASE refrain from using a fake hair color (unnatural) or from making it the same hair color as your character's crush.
Eye color? Again, do NOT make it unnatural (like red)! ONLY make it unnatural if it's in a fantasy world. If it's oh...a world of cats, colors like yellow, gray, and (rarely) whitish are ok.
Clothing style? People won't take you seriously if you have them in ALL black or if they barely wear anything. If this is a animal (not a humanoid animal, but a ANIMAL animal), state if they're wearing something like a collar (avoid spiked/studded/chained collars).
Place they're living at? People won't take you seriously if you have your character in a place you want to live in. Like Japan.
Back story? Don't make it tragic unless it makes sense and doesn't go overboard. Also, if they have had any interaction with a canon character...Don't make them past lovers or some other junk like that!
Personality? Avoid matching this with names. Seriously.
Powers? Under NO circumstances should you make them immortal, have unmatched powers, ultimate healing skills, etc.. Make it a skill that they've been working with. Like uh....the ability to balance plates on a stick.
Weaknesses? This is very important!
Historic significants? If your character is something like a country representative or a solider, please do your research!
Remember, you should not make them look like a canon character! That's like dying Sonic green and calling it your OC!
OC examples- This will show you good and bad examples of OCs.

Fandom: Dragon Ball Z
Name: Ikimono Hiro
Nickname/Aliases: Hiro (What most call her), Shorty, Brat, Icky (By Vegata sometimes) Stranger, Boy, Girl, Kid, Dumb brat, dumb kid, Burden.
Species: 1/2 Saiyan
Appearance: She usually has black short hair, but sometimes she'll go a while without cutting it and will braid it. Usually wearing a baggy, dark blue tank top with a black and red scarf. According to her, the scarf was once white, but after a freak accident, she got blood on it and decided to dye it black, but the red faded through. Usually wearing gray shorts or baggy gray pants. For shoes she usually wears none claiming: "I like the grass in between my toes... It makes me feel peaceful." But when she has to, she'll wear hiking boots.
Backstory: Her mother was a saiyan, but her father was human. Her father was a very smart scientist, but extremely selfish, keeping his findings to himself. He discovered planted Vegeta through an extremely high-tech and advanced beyond the age telescope that he had developed. He saw that they had a very similar build to humans, so he developed a spacecraft that would get him there, although most didn't know how he managed, and he left for planet Vegeta. On arrival 5 years after departure, he was surrounded by Saiyans, all shooting Ki blasts at him. He nearly died, but Colifa, Hiro's mother (soon to be) had backed in and defended him. She was a saiyan doctor and scientist. She defended him claiming "He's different. Spare him, I want to do research." And she did as said, but let him live. Eventually, they fell in love and had Hiro. On the day before Freiza was going to destroy planet Vegeta, Colifa had a bad feeling and sent Hiro's father to return to Earth. He did as told, though unwilling, bringing Hiro with him. When they got back to Earth, with Hiro's saiyan nature, she lost control and hit and severely injured her father, but he survived. Once more, when she was 8, she lost control, this time, injuring her father much worse than last time. Reluctantly, he knocked her out. He removed all of her memories, but wrote her a note. "Hiro, I am sorry... So so sorry I had to do this to you, but it was for your own good. You're a saiyan... A half saiyan... Your mother's name is Colifa, and my name is Ge-" Her father's body was nowhere to be found when she woke. But she still thinks her father is a selfish jerk who did it for his own good. She was still very smart, and managed on her own in a small fort in the woods. She meets Gohan and the others when Vegeta and Nappa came to Earth. She fights Nappa after Tien dies, getting extremely mad, due to her fear of death and blood. She fights and does some moderate damage, but to no avale, getting knocked out because of fear and hesitation.
Personality: She is selfish a bit, prideful, fearless (almost), and has no filter or sense of manners. She had no one to teach her, but no one's going to judge her to her face, they're to terrified. On multiple occasions she has beaten the legit crap-baskets out of people just because they said she was rude. She's not completely like that though. People said things behind her back, she heard, but usually let it slide. Because of that, her cold personality was what people saw and knew her as. She didn't show much sympathy until after Tien died by Nappa, that's when she lost control and attacked Nappa but then she had a memory of her father and froze and was knocked out. Piccolo and the others admired her for fighting for them, even though she didn't know them and that's when she became softer. When she woke up after Goku arrived and she was given a senzu bean, Goku asked "Your friends are waiting." He smiled, motioning to Gohan and Krillin. That's when she softened more. She had still never smiled at them, because she was more embarrassed then cold at that point. Eventually, during the Namek saga, on the ship to Namek, Krillin cracks a joke about Gohan's hair and she breaks out laughing (Unintentionally), revealing her true, bouncy nature. That's when she really opens up, though after that she put on a pout face and tried to act serious, though she once more broke out laughing with Gohan and Krillin. She usually keeps that personality, except in battle, when becoming more serious and focused, her cold personality once more returning. She's also a foodaholic and usually is found sitting in her room with music and a bunch of food if she's not training or off attempting to solve all the world's problems.
Fandom: American Dragon (technically not a fandom)
Full Name: Ashley Draca
Age: 14 (not my real age)
Species: Dragon (appears as a human and can transform into dragon form. That's basically what the dragons do in the show so it should make sense)
Height: (as human) 5'3 (as dragon) 7'1
Weight: 119 (as human) 250 (as dragon)
Full name: Rosslyin Annabelle Summers

Height: She has the ability to fluctuate but usually around 5'9
Weight: Also fluctuates depending on the form she takes, but about 150
Eyes: Amber (One's White because she's blind in it)
Clothing style: Just think of Trainer May's outfit, but purple and without the the thing on her head
Current residence: She is a traveler, but somewhere around Pinwheel forest
Backstory (Ugh, Here we go): She Grew up around Mahogany town, She had abusive parents who often locked her in the basement and beat on her. when she was old enough ( Plotholes because she met up with me Aka the MC, when we were both 16. and my Fic stems from Pokemon Heartgold, in which it was around 2012-2015 and....Bleh I need to fix it.) We were both looking for a place to live, and after warming her up a little we set off on an adventure together. She also Accidentally Transformed her baby Brother into a Ghastly because he pulled on one of her tails, which earned her a severe beating, and that's how she became blind in one eye along with a large scar on her forehead. Also I came up with the idea that she got a forced gender change.
Personality: Sweet, Intelligent, Bold, Competitive, (Also a little Shy), Protective, determined
Powers: She can manipulate fire, Pick up and throw things with psychic powers , She can run fast enough to climb up walls, abnormal strength, She can (If mad enough and transformed) evaporate all water around her, she is able to communicate with the dead (In a full meditative state.) she is able to alter her appearance, and finally she is able to sense malicious intent in peoples hearts and detect lies 5 times better than any human or machine.
Weakness is: Obviously , her eye limits field of view and depth perception so aiming is a big issue, Is her scar is touched it makes her just tense right up and puts her in shock, when she transforms she becomes completely anamalistic, essentially throwing her logic and reason out the window, she hates to kill so in last resort situations she tends to hesitate. Also, She likes to run off a,lot.
Historical significance: N/a
Yeah I think the thing that hurts her is the plotholes in her backstory, and as soon as a Bad past was supposedly a bad thing.....yeah XC but it helped kickstart events so is that okay? Also Ross is Immortal but not really. she can die if her main tail is cut off, but otherwise she can't die. ( I kinda drew inspiration from the mythos too.)

Eye color: [Faux: Green] [Natural: Black] (all Freaques and Supers and black eyes)
Clothing style: For casual, usually invests in cardigans or jackets. Skinny jeans are her friend. Boots and converse are also her go-to. For SCOUTING, it's usually combat/steel toed boots with either yoga pants or leggings. She needs something to move around in, ya know? Scout members of Freaques are required to wear masks on their hunting expeditions unless they are undercover. She has this jacket her friends/team mates made for her that's like army green, and on it's back it has a badass explosion that her oldest friend painted on for her. That's basically her uniform.
Current Residence: Condo in NYC. Scouting Hunters live in an apartment complex separated from the res of their race due to their dangerous career choice.
Back Story: Not much is known about her parents. Though she is positive they are alive, she could really care less if they died tragically. They most likely lived in poverty when she was born, because they sold her to the Researchers lab to the race of Freaques. Since she was born a human, there were plenty of tests and fluids injected into her system. Apparently, someone injected a little too much for an infant to handle, but after a flu, she got over the illness quickly and he Researchers shooed her off into the race of Freaques, sending her to primary school until she was eleven years old. Since other schooling was optional, her and her friend Marcus went to join the military, and they were enrolled in the trainees regiment for two years. After her aptitude test near graduation, it scored her to be best fit to be placed in the Scouting Hunters. (They kill a SHIT ton of monsters, Supers, and humans!) She graduated at fourth in her class, and was able to choose and make up her own squad for combat. Usually, a team consists of 9 members, but she only picked 3. Marcus Krushnik, Dmitri Eland, and Christopher Orav. Now at age 15, she is an imperative part of the Special Operations Squad of the Scouting Hunters. Although her team has the least amount of members, they have the second largest amount of kills in the whole legion.
Personality: She is pretty laid back and really down to earth, but she requires everyone to do their best and strives to get a job done correctly. Sarcastic, and has a humor darker than hell itself. Incredibly sadistic, since Scouts have to kill on an almost daily basis. Has an incredibly sharp wit, and is super clever.
Powers: Nesis (telekinesis), Porting (Teleportation [are you catching on yet?]), Metal Manipulation. NORMAL POWERS: Martial arts/street fighting skills. Weaponry expertise. Painting and drawing. Baking.
Weaknesses: Unable to use more than one power at a time. Heights (kinda) Has a habit of going too far with her victims. Sometimes doubts a little too much. Trust issues. Way too feisty at some points. Incredibly cunning. Sarcastic, and sadistic. UBER IMPATIENT. A super good liar. SO a liar. (LMAO)
Historical significants: becomes superior at one point. might be important. (IT IS OMG)
PLS someone tell me what their opinions are! I'm dying to know about her!

(Their age - Human age: 652-1)

hair style, and sometimes uses a barrete to pin a strand of hair out of her face. She also has a backpack usually filled
with hygenic items.
Place they'e living at: She lived with a human couple she encountered while she first landed on
Back Story: She was just a simple Kutonian with a job of finding out what Earth was like, she
went to Earth, and unlike most of the clumsy aliens, she DIDN'T CRASH LAND. Her ship is a
one seater that can transform into a motercycle when needed. (I wanted to do a bike, but... How would that
work? The engine and stuff needs a place to go!) She first met a couple of a thin blonde woman named Margret,
and a thick tan man named Gregory. At first, the couple didn't trust her one big, and were actually planning to
turn her into the goverment, but after she proved that she wasn't there to take over, or anything crazy that most
aliens seem to do, they decided to take her in. After a month of living there she got a job at a coffee shop (NOT STARBUCKS. Haha.)
and now enjoys painting, sculpting, and other craft projects. (Expect for wood work and melding. She's terrible at that!)
She doesn't really do anything special, or have a crazy back story. She's just an adverage joe.
Personality: She's usually sweet, but can get moody sometimes. She can get carried away with talking about plants, such as flowers or vegetables,
but doesn't talk much since she can't speak Enlgish well, but she's studied it and her grammer is as good as an educated 9TH graders. (She's only been on
Earth for about 8-9 years. She's kind of a quick learner.) Usually when she's upset, she doesn't show it, and she's VERY protective of Margret and Greogory.
Powers: She can mimic the look of other creatures, but barely uses it. She also heals twice as quickly as a human, but gets infected if it's not washed daily.
Weakenesses: Babies (a fear of them since they're germy little demons), she greatly dislikes dust and dirty things (like a dirty covered floor, dusty tv screen) and
pickled or steamed foods (she gets extremely sick).

He doesn't care at all of hurting people's feelings; 3. He's not really good with expressing his feelings (*ahem* when and if he has any); 4.

Aurora (my character) is the daughter of Glacia, the head of their clan, and Glacia wants Aurora to accept immortality when she reaches master status (a rare thing to happen) and becomes the prophesied Dragon Guardian (the name is still changing). But Aurora doesn't want to be immortal because she has a fear of leaving her friends behind. Story goes on and in order to save the world/land, she has to become the thing she doesn't want, immortal. She does so but has to stay in the temple (as a spirit) to protect the land, and as she watches the world change she watch over her friends until the day she is needed again.
You see, my definition of immortality is becoming a spirit (or something like that) and I want to know if that feature is counted as mary-sue-ish? If you don't mind answering.

What do you think can be improved?
the 2nd was.................stuff
im more of a fantasy person so only some don't count 4 me >w<
(wuts a canon???)
So some examples would be: -In My Little Pony, it's canon that Twilight is Princess Celestia's student.
- In Dragon Ball Z, it's canon that Goku and Chichi are married, and Vegeta and Bulma are married.
- In the book series (about cats) Warriors, it's canon that Rusty is accepted into Thunderclan.
What wouldn't be canon: -Pinkie pie is instead Celestia's student.
-Goku and Vegeta ditch their wives and children to be together.
-Rusty gets accepted into Shadowclan instead.
Well, it's a work in progress, so yeah...
It's also from an anime, so if something sounds weird, it's probably following the plot of the story.
Name: Di (Short for Diana, but Di sounds cool)
Height: 5'7 (Is that too tall?
Weight: (I'm not sure what the average height for a girl that's 5'7 is...)
Hair color: White (It's normal, because my OC is from this anime where there's this place where white hair is natural, so it's not too weird. I hope.)
Eye color: CHANGES COLORS!!!11 (Jk, blue xD)
Personality: Serious but not like too serious, friendly, a bit introverted, sometimes greedy, especially when there is something that evolves money.
Weaknesses: She has a lot of pride, and that gets to her head. She is also deadly afraid of fire, death in general, and loosing her friends.
Powers: Pssh. She doesn't have any.
Clothing Style: The typical outfits that they wear in the shows. So yeah, the normal stuff.
Backstory: (I tried to tone down the Mary Sue-ness for this. Also, like I said earlier, this is my oc for an anime, so if something sounds weird, sorry) Di was born as a servant for royalty. She became friends with a servant there, leading her to meet the heir to the throne as a child. Then, many years later, to escape from the evil queen, the three of them escape via aircrafts to meet the main characters and a bunch of stuff happens.
....So, how bad is it? It's my first oc and all, so....
I know what you mean.
This is what I have so far-

Name: Ian Stewart
Height/Weight: 5'8" / 147 lbs
Hair color/Eye color: Light Brown, Brown
Clothing Style: Very casual except when at work, then always in uniform.
Current residence: Outskirts of Washington D.C.
Back story: Born to Evan and Natalie Stewart, both working for the government. Growing up in the shadow of the nation's capital with his parents both being government employees, Ian tried his best to strive for something great. Although he always worked hard to achieve something he deemed as great, he didn't have as much raw talent as many of his peers, and in his own opinion could never match up to them. Quickly loosing his drive, Ian decided to join the military, where he trained extensively as a pilot. His parents, unable to bear the thought of their only son being deployed to a warzone, pulled strings to get him a job with the P.A.I.D. (Psychic Anomaly Investigation Department). He now works as a field pilot, flying his team to and from mission areas investigating dangerous individuals with psychic abilities (This is where his nickname comes from, as he acts as their "mailman", delivering them to missions). What he did not realize was that he actually had to join the team on missions as well.
Personality: Hasty to make decisions, and often doesn't think things through. Is very kind and quite quick-witted, but can come off as passive-aggressive. He will put in extra effort in trying to be nice to those who are nice to him, but is quick to be harsh on himself.
Powers: Is an above-average pilot, knows a multitude of random (and for the most part) useless movie facts, competent in ranged and hand-to-hand combat, has political connections through parents, makes a mean schnitzel.
Weaknesses: Is in the 80% of world population that does not possess psychic powers. Often lacks focus and concentration, and is his own worst enemy. Sucks at board and card games. Very susceptible to allergies in the fall months. The very mention of marshmallows make him green.
Interests: Watches movies at any and all available opportunities, Collects old VHS tapes and original film reels, occasionally watching them when he gets the chance.
Historical significants: Found an old film reel from a film previously thought lost whilst digging around at a garage sale for $100. He then turned around and sold it to a museum for a couple thousand dollars, where the reel was restored and the film archived.
This is a very good character~ I don't really see anything that needs correcting.
Try to make the person not like you but something that ISN'T you, like how in Steven Universe they are all diffrent, the characters aren't all like the creator. Try to make the character strange and exciting but fits into the show obviously, try to give the character an interesting (but not sob story stuff) back story. Try to make them original and use a name that's very fitting for the show. Even if the character is someone who you long to be, I don't mean just in looks but in personality then go for it! Hey that's a start! Then with that starting character you can start to develop them.
