Let’s talk about main characters. When designing heroes and villains, one of your most powerful tools is archetypes. These are iconic representations of cultural entities such as the vengeful lone warrior or the wise old wizard. You certainly want to put your twist on it, but a strong archetype will take your character far. For this project, my protagonist is a young revolutionary leader. I used a strong historical figure (Che Guevara) as a main inspiration, and made him the ragtag underdog I was looking for.
