What am I missing here - Razor list question

I have done the exercise just like the example in the video but I dont see what it is not passing. It said I did not close out my <li> element but I did. Not sure what to do at this point

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 (var character in characters) 
          {
           <li>@characters</li>  
          }
         </ul>         
      </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

You're trying to print the collection instead of the individual strings.

You created a character variable in your loop, but in each list item you have @characters (plural), which represents the entire collection.
