After Today Large towers were built in order to sustain the population that was starting to explode on the surface world. When people started to move to start a new life in the towers, some jobs had to be remade in order to better serve the now vertical houses that people now live in. The first six floors of the seven towers across the world are the main Housing Districts; with marketplaces lining the main walkways from the elevator to the other side of each of the six tiers to the seven floors of each apartment complex within each tower. With the new way of living, one of the main concerns was how people were going to get their mail. Letters and packages weren’t going to fly into people’s mailboxes. With time, people noticed that the buildings were close enough to climb in between them.

1) A personality.
2) A physical appearance the reader can imagine.
The first is created through characterization, and the second is said to be done through physical description. While both statements are true, what I’d like to discuss is how physical description needs to do more than just craft appearance, and more than anything, it's characterization that contributes to vividly imagined characters.

I recently had to change both lenses of my glasses frame because of two reasons. First, because my left eye got worse so they had to replace that. Second, because there was a new line of Transitions and the one I was currently using had a lighter tint than the new ones. So, if I didn't, it'd look funny.|
So, in my head, I'd look like a pirate.
