From here, you need to select an available save slot. If this is your first character, all three will be available. It doesn't matter which save slot you choose here.

You will now be able to customize the gender and body type of your character.

1 Gender: Female, Body Type: Child
2 Gender: Female, Body Type: Adult
3 Gender: Male, Body Type: Adult

3 Hairstyle Type
4 Hairstyle Color
5 Face Type
6 Eye Type
7 Eye Color
8 Name
9 Confirm

All of the options above should be self-explanatory, but for your name, you may want to enter something coherent that makes sense to other Japanese players. You can use a site like this to convert an English name to Japanese, which you can then enter when on the option 8 (Name) screen. Names do not have to be unique, so don't worry about names that could be taken.

Confirm your character. You will now need to create a sibling for your character. The above options are exactly the same here. Go through the character creation process to create your sibling's look and name.

At the end, you will confirm that you want to create your character. Select the first option ("Yes") to proceed.
