Yes, this exactly! That's what I do with my characters. I don't make up their personality. I just take something really basic, like the way they look, and wait for the rest of their lives to come to me.
I periodically do kind of like what Giratina does: place my character in a scenario and see how zie acts, how zie talks and to whom, how zie treats other people. It's kind of like that game people play when they look at someone in a public place and make a story about them. You glance at someone, judge them by what they say/do/act towards others, and think of a motivation as to why they do the things they do.
Now nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody speaks my name
