Characterization

How convincing are characters? To create believable characters, writers must make them . . .

Consistent — in behavior and motivations.
Cohesive — in overall psychological makeup.

Even characters who behave erratically, who seem inconsistent, should still be cohesive (whole). Their erratic behavior should be part of their overall psychological make-up.
