What makes a good flaw for a character. I know what I want in a character to explain why and how they ended up that way, but some of the time, with certain characters I think I end up going to far. For my sci fi piece, the character Hayabusa is the sole survivor of an ambush by a pirate gang. He was run out of the army for 'psyche' reasons, basically he has seriously bad dreams, often reliving that ambush, or seeing former team mates taunting him about surviving. Is that going to far? With another story, Balance as you know it, Leon and Sheree depend on each other too much, they end up feeling lost without the other around. Is that enough of a flaw for them, or is it too little? I guess what I am saying, is how do to make all of the little details I know make them human beings visible to the reader, without being like a certain washed out 80's rapper/MC (Must stop the hammer time).
