We all have such seasons and our characters should be no different. After all, there have been times in life when we have been students and other times, say, when we've been employees. So what seasons in life do your characters go through?
If your setting is in fantasy or sci-fi, do your characters have education as we know it? What do their young people have to go through to be considered mature? How do your characters cope with expected changes in life (their society expects them to do this and then do that etc)? How do they handle the unexpected ones (the sudden loss of someone special etc)?
Does your created world have physical seasons as we understand them here? If so, what function does each season serve? I would expect there to be some sort of growing season (which logically must be followed by some kind of harvest).
How do your characters mature? Are there rituals they must follow and what happens to anyone who defies that?
Plenty of food for thought there I think.
