I apologise for the vague title, but this is my first attempt at getting feedback on any character, for my stories. I've been working on a post apocalyptic universe for the better part of 3 years and I feel like I'm almost ready to write my first book. This book, is part of a larger series, based within this universe. The first character I want to talk about is named Sheldon. I'll give the cliff notes in the form of a timeline: •He was born to a couple, enslaved within a labor camp. If you were not part of the breeding camp, you were executed, if caught. They would be caught and saved Sheldon, at the expense of their own lives. He is found by an old woman and taken in. •sheldon grows up with his new family (an old woman and a girl much older than him, whom he considers his sister), never knowing his past. When he's around 7 years old, he and his family are attacked by a group of random slavers. Sheldon is shot in the throat but was saved by his sister and is hidden away from safety. She hides him, but she is captured trying to run. Sheldon is now alone, for the first time. •Being mute from his injury, he had to learn sign language to communicate with people. Though some attempts landed him with dangerous people. •Eventually, he would go on to find a group of people, living within a broken down subway station. He would go on to live in peace for several years, until he was 11. Something caught fire and set the entire station ablaze. A lot of people got out. But there were still many that were trapped within. Sheldon was one of them. In the midst of the chaos, a passing traveler spotted the people running out of the subway. Finding out from one of them that people were still trapped down there, he ran directly into it. Most of the rail cars were engulfed in the bright flames, but he dashed into one regardless. He managed to make out at arm sticking out from some debris and pulled the person out. It was Sheldon. He was alive but horrifically burned. Roughly 80% was burned. But the man got him to safety and nursed him to health. Neither of them had anyone to call a friend, so they grew like brothers. The man goes by Brick. •Over the next several years, Brick would teach Sheldon how to shoot. Sheldon would go on to surpass brick within that time and showed potential of being a prodigy. I have much more to add, but I figured that this post may me getting a little long; so I'd like your honest opinions on Sheldon, thus far. If it is well received or requested, I will continue putting down what I have developed for him. I have many plans for this character. I hope you can come to appreciate the survivalist within him.
