Hey guys, The character in question is charming, cocky and not exactly overly confident, but not far off. The thing is, he knows he is up there with the best at what he does, or rather he has never lost or come up against many that can challenge him. So obviously we all know that type of personality, David Haye, Muhammad Ali and so on. They were the two easiest examples to think of; its not a novel about boxing. The novel would be in the same category as Lord of The Rings etc. Getting back to my question, this guy has to eventually do something that he doesn't want to do, but has to for the sake of his friends, kingdom and basically his own life. After he does it, he will not be the same as he was. In a way he will become more mature, but he will no longer be that cocky, charming young man he once was. I feel like it will be easier if I just tell you what he does. He has to kill the woman he is in love with because she is his, his companions and his kingdoms enemy. She is a commander for the enemies in this novel, and the character who will change meets her when he is on a mission for our 'good guys' so to speak. Now obviously having to kill the woman he is in love with is something that will change him a lot. My question is how much is too much (or too little) for him to change for the sake of firstly, himself and my readers connection with him, and for the sake of my novel. I really need to stop babbling on like that, but it all sounds different in my head than it does when it's being written down…I need a drink! Thanks in advance!
