The main character in my Warcraft Fanfiction work, To Hunt a Demon, has one motivation: vengeance. Sure, it sounds like a great motivation, something any writer could have a lot of fun with, but the problem comes up with character development. He's supposed to meet a certain woman who, slowly but surely, starts draining his drive for vengeance out of him. There are a few problems I am absolutely stuck on: 1) How can a drive for NOTHING but vengeance be believable? 2) How can I make it clear that his burning drive for revenge is being cooled by this woman without making it obvious that I'm making it clear? 3) How could I possibly write the final, deciding moment, where HE understands, and chooses his love for this woman over his drive for revenge? It's not a moment like, "if I get my revenge she dies", it's really a personal moment, a mental moment, and internal conflict moment - there isn't enough room in him for BOTH these strong, powerful emotions, and he needs to choose one. How can I write this moment properly? My first try was waaay too anti-climactic, but my second try was about 500% longer than it should have been. Any help? I turn to you, fellow writers.
