To begin with, the character is all I have settled on for my story. He is the protagonist, and comes from a wealthy family. The family is one of the few bloodlines in the modern world still able to use magic. The family is influential and wealthy. The protagonist as a young child witnessed the death of a close friend, and as such decided to undertake magic in order to protect his friends and family in the style of a typical anime hero or superhero. However his talent is almost non existent, he can only manipulate the mana, but cannot conduct spells and such. His inability to gain any significant increase in strength, along with constant comparisons to a talented younger sister, begins to cause him to develop psychological problems and an inferiority complex. After a while it causes him to snap and attack at his somewhat unsupportive father, who retaliates and severely injures him with magic. This causes him to be hospitalised for around a year and a half. After leaving the hospital the protagonist's psyche and personality has become twisted, leaving him emotionally distant from everyone with a very cynical attitude and negative outlook on life. He also becomes introverted and due to the magic fight his body is severely weakened. I wanted to start the story off with the characters acceptance that his weakness and inability to achieve his goal constantly affects his mentality, as well as constant communication with his family affecting him as well. I decided o make a character like this after getting tired of the typical "get strong to protect everyone" trope used in a lot of anime. This made me think about what would happen if they didn't achieve that goal, and how I would affect them not just physically but mentally. As this will be my first story any feedback is appreciated.
