I'm a bit of an altaholic (every class toat least 80 so far) and I can say with confidence that every one of my chars has their own story and personality. It's not anything that I've say down and developed, per se, it's something that's grown organically from hours and hours played.For instance, my main is a grumpy undead priest, annoyed at people who carelessly stand in bad stuff (it would be so much easier if you mind control them out, but then they get angry) and at being denied the quiet embrace of death. My goblin shaman, on the other hand, loves swinging her hammers at enemies, mostly because she'd rather be back in her workshop making some new toy that will fail spectacularly as soon as she tries to use it. She also annoys her trainers by constantly asking if it would be possible to use her fire elemental to power a steam engine she's dreaming up. And so on, and so on...

This so much ^^. I also cycle through 10+ alts on any given day. Each one has part of me in them and each one has their own quirks. I guess I have a lot of quirks to go around. I am not a RPer in the literal sence, but I RP certain things in my head and sometimes it leaks into the game. Yesterday my Paladin was in Goldshire and there was a dead body on the ground. So I asked the guard, "Guard, who killed this man?' As soon as I noticed it was a Goblin, I dismissed it and went on my way. So I both refer to my toons in the first and third person, which might be weird. I dunno. There is definitely lots of me in each one of my toons :p I guess each one is how I would be if I were them, if that makes sense.

A lot of mine have done that. Several began as meta-roleplay with my sister and I playing characters from other things stuck in WoW. Several times, they have grown to be someone else entirely. My favorite little girly mage with a phobia of water started that way, started as someone else entirely.
