You can track your characters with as much detail as you'd like using Hiveword's rich set of attributes. Creating, editing, sorting, and deleting characters works just like the other story components.

Adding Aliases

You can add any number of aliases to your character via the character information sidebar on the right. Hover over Aliases and click on the pencil icon. You'll get a popup where you can add or remove aliases. After saving, the aliases will appear in the sidebar.

Moving/Copying to Another Story

Whether you want to move or copy, the way to do it is to select "Move/copy to another story" from the Actions dropdown menu on the the screen for the character you want to move. You'll then be given the choice of where to move or copy it.

Generating Random Names

Thinking of interesting character names can be a challenge. Luckily, Hiveword has a random name generator. You can access it in two places: the character list view and any character detail screen. In each case, click on the Actions dropdown menu and select Name Generator. You'll be taken to a page with a random list of names. You can click the Generate Names button to generate more until you find one you like. You can also select male or female names.

If you see a name you like you can immediately create a new character with that name by clicking Add Character.
