I'm worrking my way through this topic in Factopedia & have noticed that some of the characters included are actually historical figures not fictional characters. at least 9 since I started paying attention - Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Alice B Toklas, Karen Blixen are just a few of the really obvious ones.  I thought that rather than trawling through the rest of the 750 - plus entries, the 'Fictional' could be dropped from the subject title. Alternative question formats could then be something like :
Which character appears in a book/story by **authors name** ? followed by four character options. 
A book/story by which author includes **name of character**?  then four alternative authors.
If this is unacceptable, I can just post the list I have so far & keep plugging away. It may turn out to be not that many but - several hundred fact checks  O-O

I'll take a look later but sounds like a good plan, although maybe Characters in Fiction or Characters in Fictional Literature or similar might be better or real people in non-fiction.

'Real People in Non-Fiction' could be a stand alone then?

Maybe I could find a few more & it could be my first subject contribution?

Yay. I'll get on it. : )

Quick question, though. should the format include the historical figure plus author plus booktitle. Or historical figure plus author/ booktitle - one or the other?
Either one could be added as trivia.

Choose either author or book title to go in the fact then put the other into the extra info. I would suggest Book title with author in the extra info. 
And the the Subject could be Real People in Fictional Literature.
