Original fan characters (often abbreviated OFC, FC, or OC) are fan-created characters not present in the source material. They enjoy popular use in fanfiction, their importance ranging from merely residing in the background to being the focus of the plot, but with the rise of text-based role play and serial fanart such as comics it is not uncommon to find their stories expressed through different means.
Often a distinction is made between fan characters and original characters, since fan characters are generally based in a universe not of the fan's creation, while original characters frequently come with their own universe (and would be the basis of an OFC).
