In William Blake’s Auguries of Innocence, he wrote:
And when this we rightly know,
Through the world we safely go.
Interesting characters often portray seeming paradoxes revealing the complicated condition of human nature. Our favorite characters are rarely perfect. They often wrestle with demons and defy expectations. They may be sinister beyond comprehension or strangely upbeat despite a dark past.
Despite the fact we invite complicated and imperfect characters into our hearts, we rarely leave room for the idiosyncrasies that furnish our own identities. What facets of your personality would make you a remarkable protagonist? We often share the same quirks and imperfections as our favorite characters, yet we generally re-label these traits as flaws or defects. Furthermore, perfect characters are seldom remembered.
