When it comes to character building, how do you bring your character to life?

Well, I have a very hard time coming up with names, so I usually choose a 'placeholder name' to begin with, and then the magic happens in the History section.
Personality and Appearance are completely based off of History, and if I haven't got a specific appearance in mind, it really is irrelevant in my mind.

The funny part, however, is that by the time I'm done with a SU, I tend to get attached to the placeholder name, which sort of turns into "the character's name already" in my mind, so I rarely ever end up changing it in the end.

But yeah, it's all in having a clear and defined history, imo.
