I have no idea what the character Xirin is for, but I see elves and think forests, so maybe replace the bland beige wall with a nice forest, then you can theme the info scene a little more (an opaque background for the text, etc..)

Even some green noise blurred would work!

For the larger graphic, have you played with some different layouts and styles?

If I was going to lay this out with the elements you've got here, I would bump the photo over to the left a bit, and add a little more space to the right of the content block. Then, I would go ahead and remove "Name-" and just have the stylized Character title. "Bio-" looks ok, but I would switch the red and the black, I think that would make the text a little easier on the eyes. Also, I'd reduce the line spacing and bump the font up one size. I'd also equall out the spacing at the top and bottom of the text block relative to the edges of the overall graphic.

So from left to right it would go space-character photo-space-text-space, and all the spaces would be a little more equal.

I'm kind of rambling here so I'll just shut the heck up now.

I hope that's the kind of feed back you were looking for.
