Why don't I give you a rundown of characters that I've created. These are all protagonists. 1. A black kid who at age 12 was part of a gang, but now at age 19 has turned his life around and is involved in church ministry. He's been a welfare case his entire life. At age 12 his parents ran out on him, then one thing led to another and he got caught up in gang activity. This is the main character of the novel, I can't think of a name for him so I temporarily gave him my name, Preston Jacobi, so it's easier to finish the first draft. Preston is a rich kid name, so I know this is bad. 2. A white guy who has trained in martial arts his entire life. He's a high school junior who is nearing drop out status. His name is currently Ace Pemberton. Sounds like a romance character, so I need to change that. 3. A black Christian girl who is a college freshman. She is virgin until marriage, but has bipolar qualities that often cause her to act irrationally. Currently her name is Gabrielle Mercy 4. An Asian woman in early 20s who is always serious and authoritative, and acts as the voice of reason for the above characters. Currently her name is Athena Fujinaka. Perhaps that's too literal. Help! Thanks!
