A little dry.
i tend to reuse characters in other stories, so a lot of characters turn out like this when i start working on them. but if they're not reused, then they have ties to another story that has or hasnt been made yet

I might be about to do this myself, with a character in my game.
My second most important character started off as a simple audience stand-in for the first arc. I planned to remove him once the reader was as familiar with the setting as my more experienced protagonist, but he was too fun to write and people liked him a lot, so he's here to stay. I also found a really good way of linking him in with the plot.
