Hey guys I have been writing quite a bit on one of my stories and I have used germanic names. So I have come up with this world Called Òr. (This world is Based on Celtic/Anglo Saxxon Mythos) So I have eight characters, and many other minor characters. So my main eight Characters are the following: ( I have used German Naming Conventions) Count Balduin Stauffenberg - He is the Count of Stauffenberg (A Massive City to the north of the Capital of Talderia, the city is named after his family name), a general of many wars, more of a warrior than a general, often sent on menial tasks by his King, he has a family and is a prominent leader in society. He is a famed swordsmen and Hero. He is the Main the Protagonist of this story, he often has affairs with many other women, and often disobeys the kings direct orders. He often is known for punishing soldiers, his legion, Known as the Count's Legion is notorious for torturing its prisoners, the legion itself is currently involved with fighting the Druids of Taeld (Woodland area to the north of their kingdom). Balthasar Tomislav- A Royal Guard of the King, tasked with guarding Count Balduin on his journey. He has never been to a real battle, (unless if you count quelling uprisings). As like most royal guards, he is treated well and given many chances. But recently he has grown to hate his king as he has been mistreated heavily by his king as an errand boy. (Dueteragonist) Radigost Damir - A Royal Mage of the king, also tasked with guarding Count Balduin on his journey. He has been in battle before and has graduated as one of the top magi's. He is one of the few magi's that can use his hands to cast magical spells (you usually need a focusing iris such as a wand or a staff, he only uses his hands to cast magical spells). He is young and often well spoken. He is obsessive and knows he is powerful mage. (Triagonist) Giaus Antonian - A General of the King, tasked to guarding Count Balduin on his journey. He has been in battle several times. He is the eldest of the party. He is a known horsemen and often defeating his enemies. He has had his legion disbanded and his power taken from him by order of the King. He is now a shadow of his former self, constantly bickering with the many other generals. (Quagonist?) The King of Talderia - The King of talderia, he is a very rich man, and often abuses his citizens. He is a very powerful king and if he wishes you dead, the task will be carried out thoroughly. He hates Balduin and his legion, he often calls them savages and finds them intolerable but useful. He often has many affairs and runs a harlem. The Steward of Talderia- The Leader of the Talderian Military, he is a very powerful man. He is the one in real control of the Kingdom of Talderia, he dabbles in many different arts and is often accussed of leading a cult, all rumors have been put to rest. How does that look? Or should I flesh out the villains more? Are my characters stereotypes? Should I make my characters better? Should I focus more on them in the story? Should I build them up? I can't reveal my story yet and what I want to do with the characters. All I can say is it is the King vs the Count. But somethings don't turn out for both sides.
