Abstract : Believable agents will often need to engage in social behaviors with other agents and with a user. Believable social behaviors need to meet a number of requirements: they must be robust, they must reflect and affect the emotional state of the agent, they must take into account the interpersonal relationships with the other behavior participants, and, most importantly, they must show off the artistically defined personality of the agent. We will show how to create a negotiation behavior that supports believability for specific characters and address some methodological questions about how to build believable social behaviors in general.
