....ethnicities? And yes, by ethnicities I mean like Russian, French, African, Asian, and etc. I don't affiliate those with race or whatever because I see race as species-wise.
When it comes to giving characters ethnicities I think not only does it make them more interesting, but it builds more character for them as well.
Personally I love giving my characters different ethnicities because it gives me a chance to read about and appreciate other cultures. What can I say I like learning new things. eue Thanks to Kee and Sacha I've learned more about the Russian and Barbadian cultures~
Oh yeah, and I love to give my characters accents too. Accents are so sexy~
