I am referring to him as the "Main Character" rather than the "Hero". When I started making notes for my plot, I realized that I wasn't really taking my MC's characteristics into mind, I gave him a wife in the early draft, but then I thought I might change this due to his personality. What I have had set on my character being was an idea I have had in my head since the beginning despite any plot changes. I only now that he is the opposite to many "perfect" attributes typically perceived, but perhaps a cause for concern that I need to get the balance right. So far in my mind he is; - Of short stature - Near-zero people skills (emphasis more on a lack of people skills, rather than raw 'anti-social' hostility, but perhaps uses slightly more cold gestures to mask it) - If you could imagine his 'spirit' or internal workings it would be like the "ying & yang" symbol, the black representing evil and the white, good. This would be the idea that under the hard-to-reach exterior of the character some can see glimpses of a good person trying to get out, but then again there is another, darker side waiting to get out also. This could manifest itself as the character eventually getting caught in a "limbo" of moments of good and bad deeds, but always conflicting with the bad and aiming to be good and in that sense, that is what makes him the "good" guy in the end. But what do you think of the idea (not this character in general) of a main character who isn't really a character of many words, or 'quality' interactions with people, but rather awkward ones and even rather introverted in his own right, but this giving more room to improve and develop on also.
