Character Descriptions - cross posted to rpg_creatives

I've written a few games for conventions or one-shot games in the past and I keep trying to better the 'character background sheet' that goes with the character. From the character you can easily see that the character has +5 to his sense motive score, or can shoot a gun at 25%. However, there are more important things from a role-playing point of view...

Currently the template for these characters or even non-player characters is:

Name:
Code Name:
Nickname:
Occupation:
Age:
Description:
Recent Background:
Primary Motivation:
What brings out the best in you:
What brings out the worst in you:
What are you afraid of:
Obsession:
Darkest Secret:
Greatest Treasure:
Relation to other characters:
What did you have for breakfast:

I wondered if anyone else had experience of such things or comments in general?
