It's pretty much the whole reason why people write and read books. If you create completely rounded character that people can relate to and in some way see themselves in ( or at least who they want to be ), then people will read your books. They will fall in love with your characters. And that's what  keeps them coming back. At least it's what keeps me coming back to writers and their new books, more-so than the plots of new books. If I've read a book by an author, and I've fallen in love with the characters and fell into the plot, odds are pretty high that i will return to read their other works. I'm even more inclined to read something out of my comfort zone if they've had awesome books before.

So here's what I know about my two main characters:
Naida -
17 years old
Born in Nashville, Tennessee
Parents [Mikel and Whitney] were killed when she was young (10)
Sent to live with her uncle at 9.
She tends to her uncle's "girls", getting anything they need and basically taking care of them.

Samuel -
25 years old
Born in the *Outskirts [ Kairi nation ]
Parents are both dead, his father very recently.
Alpha by blood-- and by fight. The 5th alpha of his name.

And here's what I need to know:
Relationship with -
     The Twins [
     His pack - He's trusted and obeyed without hesitation because it's just the nature of the relationship of Alpha and pack. It's a lot of weight on his shoulders.
     The Elders [the remaining pack that used to he headed by his father]
     Naida - On principle he doesn't like humans. He never has. It's not that he's blindly judgmental but he's actually spent time across the border he just can't fathom why
     His brothers [Benjamin, Joshua, Andrew, Elijah, Micah]
       Benjamin [after his sister's suicide] Constantly challenged by Ben. He's always having to put him in his place, much more frequently than he would like. Ben hates him because of his sister, but is forced to respect and obey him.
       Joshua [after his mating to Cala] he feels separated from his second, like he can't talk to him about anything anymore because of his affiliation with Cala.
       Andrew - The oldest of his wolves, a remainder from his father's Brothers. He is critical of the way that Sam does things, since they're different than his father's way.
       Elijah - He really just runs under the radar. Barely ever noticed. He always seems to be doing what needs to be done without anyone having to ask him. He's dependable. 
       Micah - The newest, and youngest. He needs the most direction.
     Cala - (his ex) He doesn't like her, never really has. But it's worse now because she still pursues him though she is mated to his best friend.

Relationship with -
     The "girls" (Aleksander's prostitutes) [Isla, Cruz, Kiona]
       Isla - The girly girl. She loves makeup and pretty clothes and is always urging Naida to 'try' a little harder. 
       Cruz - Is the Protector. She's always there to stand up for someone else. She see's Naida as her little sister and fiercely protects her. She's been hurt and doesn't want to see it happen to anyone else. 
       Kiona - pretty indifferent  They don't really have very much of a relationship. mostly Kiona just keeps to herself but doesn't let anyone bother Naida. 
     Sasha [Naida's Uncle Aleksander] - He loves her. Deeply. Sometimes she thinks that she is the only thing that he loves or respects. He's always protected her and made sure that though the harsh reality of their lives are inescapable, that she never has to 'get dirty'. She basically sees him as her father, as she really hardly remembers her parents.
     Sam - At first sight she's afraid of him. From what everyone says about the wolves they're savage and just a bit more civilized than animals. She's almost disgusted by him.
     The Brothers - Pretty much the same as she feels about Sam, but she can see the need for them.
     The Kairi as a whole - They see her as every human that's ever wronged them. They don't like her and they make it clear. She is given a wide birth, no one wants to associate with her.
     Viktor - [the guy Sasha owes money to.] She likes him. She's had a crush on him for a very long time, until she finds out that Sasha owes him a lot of money. He's always been pleasant, if not openly friendly toward her.

And a list of all supporting characters:
Benjamin, Joshua, Andrew, Elijah, Micah, Cala
Isla, Cruz, Kiona, Sasha(Aleksander), Viktor
