Thank you. That helped me realize Caleb’s bland because I don’t have his personality in my head yet; what his strong and weak chakras are, for example. Nor have I done enough world-building to know how race would impact his worldview, in part because I haven’t chosen how far in the future this should be set.
Answering those questions should help me hone his personality a bit. I might try writing scenes with him relaxing at home or arguing with Dawn or a crew member about something minor just to get a better feel for him….
