Ever had a character in your head that you thought was really interesting, only to end up writing them out and finding they were horrible/not what you expected? I remember way back when I first starting writing at the age of 13, I had a character who was supposed to be this cool, calm, and all around cool guy as a side character. He was supposed to be the guy my MC admired and looked up to. But after actually putting him in the story, he just ended up coming off as cold and uncaring with no personality. I also had another story where in my head, the MC was a somewhat confident girl who could get by on her own, but she ended up being sorta whiny and bratty (To be fair, she was thrown into a situation she didn't want to be in right at the beginning of the book) How about you guys? Any characters that took a 180 once you began writing them?
