Ok, I want to write a character of a woman for another story I have. Strangely enough this one is forming in my head and not looking Sci-Fi at all. I know thats strange. My problem is that I know I can write a strong damsel in distress. My problem is trying to write a woman who has special forces training. Another problem is male and female fights. Not being a pig but i want it to be somewhat realistic. In sci-fi I understand how one man or woman can fight 10. I can not see however how one woman can fight to males. I have seen girls be the mess out of guys one on one. I personally have fought two men and won. I am not trying to write Michelle Yeoh into my story just trying to see if everyone else thinks a woman could fight two men solo and win. The woman will not be small, I plan her to be about 6' 3". I have met a woman who could leg press 600 lbs so I will do that physically as well. How much should her bench be as a frame of reference. Also what would be considered strong as far as mental and spiritual? I want her to have a flaw like drinkning and maybe getting high. But I also want her to be promiscuous without being slutty. How do i do this, is it possible. She was raised by her father who never remarried and always wanted a son. He is former military special forces and after her mom died her dad never remarried just had "friends". That is how i explain her behavior in a nutshell. She was raised by her father and she acts like him. I want to know if this is cliche. Am I writting a strong character or a lousy woman. I would also love to know what a woman considers to be strength of character. Ok that is enough get at me.
