Another fun, and rather quick way to create a character profile is to take a personality test where you answer the questions as your character. A method I like is the MBTI personality test, which you can take here, but any other test will do. This is a snippet that I took from the MBI personality quiz.

So, for example, let’s say I’m taking the test as my vampire character. My answer to this question would be to strongly disagree. Yeah, he’s one lonely, angsty guy ๐Ÿ™ Answer a set of questions like this, and by the end of the quiz, you’ll surely have a better idea of who your character is!
