Damaged Protagonists

Banes at 12:00AM, Jan. 18, 2018




A well written protagonist will generally have some flaws, starting out as an underdog of some kind, with lessons to learn and improvements to make over the course of the story.

Character Profile: JUGHEAD.

Banes at 12:00AM, Aug. 6, 2015



I'm not sure who the first fictional character was that I became attached to. The Cat in the Hat? Superman? Jason Voorhees, maybe?
