Awesome stuff, Rose! *ponders deeply for a moment* I have the hero archetype in the form of a secondary character, Holly. She has all the struggles of a normal person, but she has the power to deal with it because of her strong morals and courage.
And I totally agree, heroes don’t have to be main characters at all! Secondary/minor characters are really fun to see the hero archetype in.
Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.
