Think you're good at characterisation? How about establishing a character in 200 words?
Think you're good at characterisation? How about establishing a rounded character in just 200 words? Not so easy, huh?
Try to put as much detail in a possible (appearance, how they feel, etc), while following the Golden Rule:
Show, Don't Tell
There are no other rules, really. Just don't go over 200 words. Nothing much need happen in your scene, just as long as you show who your character is, and why they feel the way they do.

I'll write one to start you off, but apart from that...
