Hello! I just joined and wanted to say I hope to learn a lot here and meet awesome people! So I've been mildly agonizing over what direction to take my main character's faults in. He's a natural peacemaker/diplomatic type and typically is very up-beat if a bit quirky. In the story he's going to have to bring different kinds of characters together, and each one has a personality as different as the next. You know there's going to be fighting and all kinds of disagreement. The thing is, he doesn't do well when he's entrenched in discord. He adopts a 'peace at any price' attitude when things get bad. But I've been wondering- how could he blow up? There's the doormat who lets everyone just walk over them, but that doesn't fit him really. So I was thinking of the opposite- the aggressive peacemaker. I could see him snap in the heat of a critical argument and kind of grab some shirt collars and tell them how things are. He's not one to get violent usually, only if things have become that dire. Or- possibly a manipulative peacemaker, using words to cleverly control others to get the results he wants. Anyone have any thoughts?
