This is kinda funny... actually- but I really hate my main character... And I really need some advice or some help from you guys with it. (I don't want to put in too much words plot wise cuz I feel like I'd be selling out my story- but I just really want some help. xD) So my story revolves around a very one sided war between Angels and Demons (with the angels winning.) Both sides are trying to get a hold of "Earth". The only way for the demons to actually win is if they could find this "Secret Weapon" to beat angels. This secret weapon can only be used by humans. So... In the end, I am somewhat pushed to use a human character for a main story, right? Picking a Human for a main character in a story with lots different elements that one has to introduce is usually a good idea because readers would automatically be able to relate to that human. They don't have superpowers or whatever like Demons or Angels (in my story). I know a lot of stories do this like Agents of Shield- where Skye is your non-agent character who gets into Shield where everyone is are agents and she is just... a hacker who isn't trained at all. Or when Emma (Once Upon A Time) grew up as the non-fairy-tale character and goes into a town where everyone else are Fairy-tale characters. The problem right now i have is... My main character feels like a plot device. It's like... he's the main character because he's human and he's following what the plot needs him to do. The other characters have a purpose- to end the war and everything. Yeah- sure, the main guy wants to end the war as well. He lost "everything" because of the war- but I somehow am still not convinced. It just feels like he could be replaced with any other human being in the world willing to do the tasks and the story wouldn't change at all... Where as in contrast to my characters who are a bit more fleshed out, things would definitely change if they thought any different. That's all... and just a note in case you're curious why I'm on the demon's side- It only seems that way in the Summary- but there's a lot more about it but I don't want to put up cuz I'd feel like I'm selling out. :-x But if you guys need to know more about the premise, I'd be happy to share. Thanks for the reading!
