I have a test that I use to see whether characters are under-developed: I try to describe them without referring to either their physical appearance or their job title. If I can’t think of anything, it’s a pretty sure sign that something is missing. That’s what happened with the characters in ‘Light’ – I can’t think of any words to describe their personalities at all. I’d be interested to see if anyone picked up on any character traits that might have gone over my head, though.
