C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Views Displaying a List of Values

I did what I suppose to do, but I got an error. :(

Inside the <ul> tag I added the foreach loop. And inside the loop I inserted a <li> tag with the name of character. see the code below:

<div> <ul> @foreach(character in characters){ <li>@character</li>
} </ul> </div>

I don't see where is the problem.

Detail.cshtml
@{
    Layout = null;

    var title = "Super Mario 64";
    var description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
    var characters = new string[]
    {
        "Mario",
        "Princess Peach",
        "Bowser",
        "Toad",
        "Yoshi"
    };
}

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>Video Game Detail</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div>
        <h1>@title</h1>

        <h5>Description:</h5>
        <div>@description</div>

        <h5>Characters:</h5>
        <div>
            <ul>
                @foreach(character in characters){
                <li>@character</li>
              }
            </ul>
        </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Are you missing a "var " in front of character in the foreach loop?

 @foreach(var character in characters){
<li>@character</li>
}

I think this is it. I didn't declare it before. Thanks.
