I'm writing a story that has to do with world domination, and in doing so I want to take it from the conqueror or in this case king's perspective as the protagonist. He's a relatively strong ruler at first, though lacking confidence, partly due to the fact he was chosen to be the king by his father and he's not sure he can rule the world. I want to develop him so that he becomes stronger, and the proper and just king in this new world order over the course of the story. Though I don't know if this is enough for the character's motivation. As well as this, I feel as though him being the king of the new world order would be a turn-off for many readers (but then again, I suppose most characters can be developed to be likable.) On the other hand, there is the 'villain'. I put it in quotes because everyone I've shown a partial draft of my story so far likes his character and motivation more than the king. The 'villain' is a general in an underground organization that wants to correct the world's wrongs as well, though more democratically instead of centralized power structure. More than this, he wants to keep the modern way of life in tact--the way we live day to day, values of family, friendship, and just being able to live the way we do. When the aforementioned king rises to power, he fears that this will crush the normalcy of things as they are now. Wanting things to continue as they are, he rallies his forces and fights back. How can I better develop my prot.'s motivation so that it is as strong as my villain's (if it is strong at all) in order that the reader may better connect with them? Note: I'm a newbie: should I include more details about the characters or is this sufficient (i.e., quotes, excerpts from the story)?
