Do you have a Quirky character in your story? Is he/she someone full of unusual characteristics, like a wandering eye or totally frizzy hair, or both? Or perhaps your character is prone to say outlandish things at the most inopportune times. This peculiarity of action or behavior might be the thing that elects your character to the unusual character hall of fame. Then again, it could outshine your protagonist and make your story a little lopsided.
It's important to remember, with quirky characters, that a little salt goes a long way to spice a dish. You want your quirky character to be remembered, but you don't want them to take over the show. Unless they are the whole show (the protagonist). In that case, let them shine! But make sure your antagonist, or villian (if there is one), is up to the task of tackling your unusual main character. A weak bad guy will outweigh the scales and tip the balance of the scales. Or, perhaps your quirky character is the villian. In that case, you'll need a super character to balance him out and save the day! In any case, let your character be zany, rich and exotic! Let him be quirky!
