All right, since I'm now trying to avoid a prologue, can anyone give me a nudge as in to which of two possible main characters I should focus on more? MC #1: A young woman (Kyra) around 23 who starts off wealthy and runs her own successful company (she was actually born into a wealthy family)...one of her closest coworkers (who's mad at her for having all this wealth and perfection in life) convinces her to join the military, where she gets to experience true humiliation and starvation for the first time...a complete reversal lifestyle for her. Though she's a bit arrogant and stubborn at the beginning of her military career, the guys (and a few gals) around her help her become a truly different person. MC #2: A mechanic dude (Sam) around 23 who starts off as middle-class...his best friend is in the military and his bonding with this friend is so special that he winds up going to the military himself...he eventually runs into Kyra, who treats him like dirt until they begin to understand one another. He'd come to the point of becoming Kyra's so-called 'agent' or 'field mouse' on the military, since she's higher-ranked. Between the two, Kyra is more likely to die in the end. Would it upset readers that I may kill off my main character? Or would it be better off that my main character (Sam) observes Kyra's death as she's trying to defend him...kind of like a tragedy? Which character would be more compelling to write about? Or would I be better off switching it up? I cannot decide what to do!
