First, select the book you want to work with from your Chapterly library. Click on the dropdown arrow next to the book you want to work on so to make the document tree for the book visible. Then select the “Characters” tab.

To create a new character, you can either click on the "+" sign next to the Character tab on the Chapterly dashboard. Or you can hover over the "New Character" icon at the top right-hand corner and then select, "New Character" when the menu drops down.

If you want to generate a new character, you can click on the "generate a character" link located in the Name field of the character. A window opens up with options for generating a character based on the book genre. Select one of the choices for the character generator and then follow the instructions on adding the generated character to your book.

If you want to generate your own character, simply update the fields of the new character by adding a new name, short description, bio, notes, and image. You can add attributes to the character by clicking on the "+" sign next to Attributes. Enter the desired attribute value and then hit enter.

If you want to delete a character you can either click on the delete button at the bottom of the character page or click the "x" next to the character that you want to delete.

Now you can build your character(s) aspects of your story in detail, or you add them to a storyboard to help you to visualize the role of the character in your book.
