I’ve realized a lot of people have good characters. A repeat after repeat of the same kinds of personalities and sometimes even plots and backstories. Most people want heroes, don’t they? But why not villains? A complex-wise good villain is important to a story. Like Azula from ATLA. Every hero or villain needs strengths, weaknesses, fears, dislikes, likes, unique personality, etc. The traits that make them, themselves. The traits that define heroes and villains. Or you could keep the line blurry, too. People should put more time in creating villains, and a lot spend too much time on their heroes. That’s my daily piece of advice.
