Better Game Characters

Another book I have taken out is “better game characters by design” written by Katherine Isbister after having a brief read of the book it describes the appearance of certain characters for example why are all good characters mostly attractive and evil characters are not. The book covers a wide range of topics such as culture, face, body ,voice and the psychological bond between the avatar and the player. On page 9 its written about how the avatars Jak and kira are attractive characters, this is down to purely being good characters and there face being perfectly symmetrical. This is interesting because it seems every good character is similar, has to be strong, good looking, and smart and is this down to something in our brains do we only get attached because of their looks ? I hope that I will find out more information in this book.
