Okay, so my main character's name is Charlie and he has come into possession of a mysterious golden mask the gives mystical powers. The only way to access the power of the mask is to have a direct blood lineage to the original owner of the mask. The problem I'm having is developing a back story for him and making him likeable. So far I've established him as a drunken college student, but I need ideas to make him more interesting to pull the reader in. He really needs a reason to take on the role of this golden mask character and become a hero, but I'm just drawing a blank because every hero back story seems like it's been used.
