Those invented to present problems of which customwars satisfies
These characters are invented so that we can present needs in the form of

There are many advantages of doing this. You can always refer to exactly the same customer and circumstances as your other team mates and know everything about those people. You can also come up with situations that you yourself may not find yourself in but the combination of these characters would.

User Stories
The problems of which customwars solves

These should be presented in the form of
USER wants to do TASK so that they can fulfill OUTCOME.
The advantage of these stories is that it levels the playing field of all parties and clarifies exactly what people want and why people want it. People want to eat food but they don't want to go shopping; thats just a consequence of the action! What we try to do is identify all of the end consequences people desire without worrying about the technicalities.
