If I were to give a character traits, whether it be a villain or a protagonist, I can't make the villain like EVERYTHING I HATE and make the protagonist like nothing that I hate. Wouldn't it seem to one-sided and contrived if I were to do that? Plus, it's basically saying that the main character or any good character is "me." It sounds Hitlerian. But having a protagonist like things that I despise is too hard to fathom and may take unnecessary effort. So would you recommend that I delve deep into a character's interests, even interests that don't affect his attitude or motivations? Would emphasizing a character's favorite TV show, favorite type of music to listen to, and favorite sports teams be a waste of time or is it something I should think about? There'll be a variety of answers, so give them to me.
