An interesting idea came to me a while back.
In general there’s alot of different types of characters but my question is focused on Main characters.
In fact, what is the perspective on using an MC with a disability of sorts? Like a physical or mental illness.
I for one think it humanizes a character and it also seems to add a bit of creative flare its not out of a cruelty but rather creating sympathy and opportunity to overcome adversity. Although some disablitities would prove a challenge to write especially if the MC is the one ‘with’ said handi-caps.
Feel free to speak your opinion on the matter I’d really love to hear your thoughts readers and writers alike.
My opinion on the matter is that I really enjoy creating flawed characters even in MC’s and it provides a very fun challenge in and of itself.
Would you enjoy playing as a character that had such a challenge to overcome?
In my case I’ve been working on three projects but ‘two’ of them feature and MC with a disability or illness.
The one that brought up this line of thought was where the MC is a ‘mute’. How would you feel about playing a character that doesn’t speak?
