Hi people! This is my first thread here, so if I break some sort of secret rule, please have mercy. So, I'm writing a story with 13 main characters (yes, thirteen), and I've got a firm grip on every character except one. I want him to be different from the others, but everything that I come up with seems stale and overused. Here are the other twelve characters (highly generalized): 1. The Leader (guy) 2. The Clutz (girl) 3. The Playboy (guy) 4. The Shy Girl (girl) 5. The Nerd (guy) 6. The Mother (metaphorically. She's the same age as everyone else) (girl) 7. The Whore (girl) 8. The Poet (guy) 9. The Philosopher (guy) 10. The Fighter (girl) 11. The Dumb Blond (girl) 12. The Farm Boy (guy) So, I think I want this last character to be self-centered, because later in the story, he loses a leg and injures his other one and that ends up making him a better person. Also, he is good looking, and the brother of the dumb blond. He ends up marrying the fighter girl. So, hit me with your best shot! Thanks.
