How do you react when you're reading a book and the main character is "chosen" to be something or accomplish a great task to save the world? Do you find it annoying and overused? I ask because I'm stuck. My main character has green eyes she took after her father. This color is extremely rare in the fantasy world of my novel. I wanted to connect it to the climax of my story. Her father abused her and left her on her own as a teen. She trained to become a Rebel, being a fighter against the dark creatures called the Nyro. No one is sure where these Nyro came from, but they are suspected to be created by someone. My mc, Rystal, then goes with a few others to find where the Nyro are coming from. She had found a book describing the creation process and how to destroy the Nyro along with the boss. In order to stop them from being created, Rystal has to make a decision. This decision involves her running toward the large Nyro boss, who possesses the power to destroy anything in its way. The book described that someone has to come in contact with the Nyro boss and give their lives up in order to save everyone else. After Rystal "sacrifices" herself, she is presumed to be dead. Her lover, Lew, is struck with grief and brokenness. (I won't get into any further information, since this will only be the first book. The second book will pick up three years later, in the perspective of Lew.) I don't exactly want to make Rystal the ONLY person able to defeat this "boss," but I want to make her eye color have some connection to her strength and ability to do so. I feel by making my mc the "chosen one" and the only one able to do this, I will lose potential readers. I also want her father to have some connection. Since she hasn't seen him for years, I was planning on my mc finding him on her adventure to find the creator of the Nyro. He will assist her in her search in some way, a mystery that he knows something of what is going on.
