One of my MC's is going from a journey of being a violent asshole (as a youth) to an adult trying to redeem himself. He's living with a lot of guilt over his earlier actions. Most of which the reader gets to experience as the book progresses. I was thinking of having him ending up teaching at a school for orphans. Then it struck me as sounding a bit silly. I like the idea of having him ending up saving kids in some way, it plays well with the theme of the book but the whole orphan thing seems overdone. Any thoughts?
