This isn't exactly along the same lines but I found it to be a useful exercise in developing caharcters. Write a letter from the point of view of your protagnist asking another character for something they need and explaining why. Then write a response refusing the request with detailed explanation of why it can't be fufilled. I know this is an old exercise but it has often helped me to clarify why a character needs sometimes and sometimes weven why the other characters refuse to help.
