The solution has little to do with the programming language, it's more of a creative thing. You can either have a number of different sprite sets (much data) or devide each sprite into parts and use transparent blitts to combine them (e.g. head, hair, torso, legs, ...). This would save a lot of data but the templates are more difficult to create and to combine.
I'd try the simple version first (lots of different sprites). The user won't see the difference if you hide it behind a clever interface (structured selection of the sprite).

HTH,
Pat
