100 Evocative Character Titles (Part I)

'Beggar with Dog' by Jacques Callot

This is a resource for sparking character ideas. Descriptive titles have always done a lot for me when imagining characters: they imply history, presence, and persona with a single word. I scoured many an obscure source to find the most evocative and flavourful adjectives, only choosing words that I find easily actionable at the table and that bring a character readily to mind. Some of these entries require a bit more creativity to interpret, and some are deliberately ambiguous. For instance, 'The Green' could be someone very young and inexperienced, or someone in green garb.

I use these in conjunction with my roleplay challenges and details of wonder to quickly flesh out NPCs.

Happy rolling.
