So do you ever reuse your characters from one story into a different one just with a different role and of course a different name? I actually find it fun to do. For example using the hero from one story into the villain in another. But for that we must use the same character idea but have something different happen to them that turns them the wrong way. So I think it can also help you understand the shades of gray with character personalities. I also find it fun to have a female version of a male character in different stories. Or vice verse of course. Because even though their personalities may not be that different, the genders may change the way "other" characters or even readers see them. Which can have an interesting result. So what do you think about that?
