Selecting professions for your characters and deciding how they would act under a given set of circumstances is one of the most important decisions a fiction writer can make. Will they respond in a way normally expected of someone trained to do what they do? Will they go “over-the-top” or perform in a scared or devious manner? Each reaction is the basis for an entirely different story. Whether it is positive or negative, once the theme choice is made, the character still operates under the umbrella of their profession.
