Random Science Fiction Characters

Here's a page to generate random characters. You may wish to choose several: the protagonist, a secondary character (sidekick? significant other?), the antagonist, etc. If you want more than one, click the refresh button on your browser and a new character will appear below. You could also use the science fiction jobs or contemporary jobs to generate ideas for characters.

If you have ideas to add to the list, e-mail me at julia at
