A lot of authors talk about shaping their characters from bits and pieces of people they know or, sometimes, people they have never met. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was based on a real-life Alice, 10-year-old Alice Liddell, who had wanted Lewis Carroll (real name: Charles Dodgson) to entertain her and her sisters.

In The Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen, or at least, a part of Katniss's life, was inspired by author Suzanne Collins' childhood memories of seeing her father bring home food from the wild. Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo was also created after a girl author Stieg Larsson once knew.

In Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen probably based Catherine Morland's character on members of society as she was wont to do. Each of these characters have their own unique personalities that make them distinct from each other. If you were a literary character, which of them do you think you'd be most like?
