The field of agents is presented, taking in mind what means to be a rational entity, how it operates, can be specified, and formally described. After giving a glimpse of the current state of the field, we use the BDI model, supported by folk psychology, to discuss new challenges concerning the mentality and the behaviour of an agent. This is done with the help of our own research around new mental states and properties of the agency. Defining the character and personality of an entity can be rather interesting to attack real applications where complexity is a stong ingredient.
