Okay, so he's not really going to be a saint or anything close to, but it is about an assassin. The title was just to get someone to read this. Made ya look! I'm just now starting to develop a new character. This one cannot be flat, but I don't want to make him a stereotype. I can't make him boring, but he's serving as an antagonist at first and then later a romantic interest for the main character. So far he's levelheaded, charming, handsome, smart, and quiet, but he's also arrogant, indifferent to others' feelings, and disloyal when it comes to friendships. He's a hit man who works with the police, so he thinks he's a hero distributing justice (hence the arrogance), but at the same time, he wonders if his methods may be a bit overboard. Throughout the story, the main character shares her values and wisdom, unintentionally helping him with his internal struggles. Though he's not particularly religious, he fears that his soul may be damned because of all of the people he's killed, so he always prays for each of his victims' souls, as well as his own. Later on, he realizes what it means to be hurt, thus realizing what an ass he is to other people. Also, he accidentally bonds with the main character's best friend, and when he is forced to choose sides between the main character and her allies or the people who hired him for his current job, he sees the importance of loyalty (but not through some epiphany, just gradually). In the end, he's still a little arrogant, but everyone has at least one flaw. Does this character seem like he could be hated at first but liked in the end? Does he seem like a fathomable character, or is he too typical in stories? All help/advice/suggestions are greatly appreciated!
