This section describes FAtiMA and how characters are authored in FAtiMA. It will explain part of FAtiMA’s functionality that is necessary to understand how the defined emotional reactions, action tendencies, and goals will generate the agent’s behaviour.

The entire configuration of the characters is strongly based on the concept of well-formed names, which are used to represent objects, relations, properties and thus it is necessary to provide its syntax and semantics.
