I am in the beginning stages of drafting an idea for a new story. What I have at the moment are two female main characters, one character who will appear in the story as an early antagonist, and another character who is linked to the first antagonist, but is more of a menacing presence than a directly involved force (at least as it stands for the moment). My problem is that they are all female. While I am not going to change any of them to male, the story certainly needs more characters in it to flesh out the world and in general. I have always had trouble coming up with ideas for male characters, as I find them harder to create and not seem stereotypical, so all of my male characters are usually the products of a random inspiration spark. They have all turned out very well, in my opinion, but at the moment, I am completely lost on what to do. The universe the story takes place in contains magic, and *may* have a Victorian era - Steampunk setting. The story verse is a baby at the moment because I have been writing in the same setting for the past five years and just now decided to start over in a new setting. I'd like the story to have much greater gender diversity, so I would appreciate anyone who can provide any ideas. Thank you!
