Honestly, most of the characters in my strip were drawn before they were created.  That is, I started with a circle for the head, worked around it and in it, and ended up with a random drawing of a random character- for example, a guy with red goggles and a top hat.  “Hm, who is this strange character,” I ask myself.  The answer ended up being Lord Werriam, who travels the world in a hot-air balloon.  That’s how my stories are created.  Then, sometimes I draw things and don’t know what to do with them.  This guy still doesn’t have a name or a story:


Perhaps I’ll think of something soon.
