Almost all the fantasy/scifi protagonists I read are about follow the rags-to-riches storyline, i.e. they suddenly discover they're the wizard destined to save the world or something. Have you read any stories that are on protagonists that already have histories? For instance, if Harry Potter was already a pretty good wizard when Hagrid came? What are your thoughts on these types of stories? Sorry if this is in the wrong section btw, I was about to put it in Character Development but I felt this question is more about the stories themselves.
