    Sometimes this might happen due to a crash or an interruption when the game is trying overwrite save files. Thankfully characters are usually recoverable. There is a thread here that walks you through how to recover lost characters: http://community.playstarbound.com/threads/corrupted-lost-character-and-how-to-recover.104376/

    If you have issues recovering your universe as well, check out the thread I made here: http://community.playstarbound.com/threads/universe-fail-files-and-lost-progress.119985/

    The best thing you can do going forward to prevent this in the future is to do manual backups after each session (save at least 3 backwards just in case). I wish starbound staff would address this particular problem because I've seen a lot of people needing to do this, when they really shouldn't. :(
