Making Characters

The decision to use GURPS to keep the characters straight in my embryonic novel is paying off, if for no other reason that there's a name at the top of the sheet and what unit I've lumped them into.

Lt William Fowler, I troop, 16th Cavalry, 77th Expeditionary Group.

Lt Col Waller, commander of the Expeditionary Group.

Sgt. Harrington, mage assigned to I-troop.

Major Beasley, Commander I-Troop.  He's got a flaming saber!

I've a few more that don't have names yet.

I need more enlisted characters.

I'm still trying to decide how I want the point of view to behave.

I'm inclined to first person, but third person seems more flexible.
