The idea is to create a number of SIMPLE characters, similar to my mercury character, based still off of the periodic table. These characters would solely be based around metaphors of what they are. For example:
#1 - Ice
* What is ice most commonly seen as? Examples:
- Ice Cube
- Ice Lolly
* Look at their shapes, what they are made up of.
- Ice Cube = Water + Ice
- Ice Lolly = Ice - Flavouring
* Try are make a character based around these principles
Use this method to create characters from various elements on the table
*Note- To keep the characters bound relative to eachother, they must all have some distinct similarity i.e maybe having the same/very similar body structures.

"Each sticker card features a Garbage Pail Kid character having some comical abnormality and/or suffering a terrible fate, with a humorous, word play-rich character name such as Glandular Angela or Half-Nelson" Wikipedia

Lego characters are simple characters made from Lego, which can then be disassembled, mixed and matched to create new personalised characters.
I now plan to follow these examples in the creation of my own set of characters, based off of the periodic table.
