Three hours pass, and you've finished mapping your newest character. You've written an outline for three chapters told from his point of view, in which the readers will come to know him, admire him, and if you're lucky, even make a few memes out of him to pass around on Twitter. In short, this character is fantastic.

Obviously, you'll need to kill him.

He slips while walking over a bridge and dies.

He's poisoned by a character you'll introduce a page ahead of time, then never reference again.
