D = Destiny. Do your characters believe in destiny and, if so, how does that belief shape them? How does it affect their behaviour? Are they fitting in with the majority on their world or not? Can destiny be cheated? (I personally think not but there could be some good stories here of people trying and failing to cheat destiny!).
E = Effort. How much effort do your characters put in to achieving their goal? Do they fight for every victory or are they unable to withstand pressure and crumble when things become "tight"? Do your characters receive rewards for their efforts and, if so, what form do these take? Do any of your characters stand out from the rest for special effort?
