Hurricane Irma really put some worry in the past few days, and it also gave me time to contemplate where I’m going at with my idea. I thought a lot about the genre (science-fiction) and how this impacted the world I created. I thought of some antagonists for the hero outside of his family and friends.
As always, I want to keep them down to two sentences, and haven’t named them. I’m keeping them to four at the moment, as it will be easy to manage in my head, and on paper. for abbreviation they are A 1- 4
A #1 is a spiritual leader who is looking to get Mom in her flock and, thus have influence over Mom and second son. Cannot strike the ideal balance between controlling ways and spiritual guidance.
A #2: Is a businessman who loves to win, dominate, and destroy any competition that dares reveal itself to him. Cannot rest while Second Son holds more power, respect, and influence than him and he has no way to unseat the Second Son.
A #3 is a politician who has a city that is suffering in resources, and has made the decision to do whatever it takes to have what his city needs to survive.
A #4: Is a resourceful journalist who wants to know everything for her stories on powerful people. She’s know for her unflinching focus on the truth, decisive and candid questions, and her tenacity.
My goal is to see how these characters play out in the series. I hope to have more thoughts on them, as I flesh them out over time. Also I realize them being antagonists doesn’t mean they are 100% evil. They have conflict with the MC.
Happy creative endeavors.
