I don't usually struggle with a character's personality, they're usually my favourite part of the character creating process, but it's been months and my protagonist is still just... nothing. He's got nothing going for him. I have a larger cast of characters than I typically wright, 16 characters, and I'm extremely proud and happy with the rest of them, it's just my MC that I'm struggling with. To give some info on him, his name's Oren and he's basically a reincarnation of the god of order. Everyone has some magical power except the Toska people and Oren was born from Toska parents, thus he had no idea he had magic. Lo and behold evil is afoot his village and his mother were killed in a fire set by a god, and the other "gods" need his help to defeat the big bad. Que training montage of magic learning (plus, you know, a hell of a lot more) and that's basically it. I do mean basically, because it's actually a lot more complicated than that, but unless you want eight pages of expo dump I'll leave it at that. I kind of feel like all of my other characters have a sort of gimmick at their core, whether it be in tandem with their powers (the god of chaos is as unpredictable as he sounds) or adverse to it (god of darkness is the mother of the group.) Oren doesn't have anything like that except OCD, because he's the reincarnation of Order. I feel bad like I should have this figured out but I'm stuck. I wish I could go into more details about the dynamic relationships of the characters but it really would take eight pages of explaining a hard magic system that I don't think people want to read. But any and all help is very much appreciated!
