Transferring a character to another player

Hey all,

So I am a player in a game currently, we have a new player joining soon and as they are newer I was going to make their character.
How do I as a player make and then transfer the character to them?
I have seen how to do it as a GM, but is it the same as a player?

As a player, you will have to have the GM unassign your existing character so that you can import the new character. The GM can then assign the new character to the new player, before assigning your old character back to you.
