The Character Tree is a writing tool that can help you in a variety of ways– building a character, cracking a scene, coming up with ideas, getting unstuck. There are many different variations of character trees! Use the one that best helps you.
You don't have to make a character tree for every character you want to write. It's just another tool in your screenwriting toolbox to help make the story happen.
