(This text was written specificaly for D&D, and may thus need alterations.)
Chaotic neutral characters follow their own whims. They'll do whatever the heck they want, and damn the consequences (unless they're too noble or hurtful, watch out for that part!). They're prone to fits of "What were you thinking?" "I wasn't!" type situations. They are an individualists first and last, and value their own liberty (but will not strive to protect the freedom of others), preserving only thier own happiness, and, by default extension, the happiness of thier closest friends or thier lovers. They avoid authority, resent restrictions, and challenge traditions. However, they would not intentionally disrupt organizations as part of a campaign of anarchy. This is because to do so, they would have to be motivated either by good (a desire to liberate others) or evil (a desire to make those different from himself suffer).
Sometimes Chaotic Neutral characters end up being Combat Pragmatists, Tricksters, or just Rebellious Spirits.
Chaotic neutral characters may be unpredictable, but their behavior is not totally random - they are not as likely to jump off a bridge as to cross it. However, they do act on momentary whims, and are known to be unreliable. As some would say, "the only reliable thing about them is that they cannot be relied upon!"
