Hero or Heroine

Hero or Heroine

I’m so excited when I start a new story! Most writers believe that the single most important part is the characters. If readers fall in love with your characters—especially the main character—they will read to the end, feeling every emotion, taking part in the adventures. So as we work together toward building our story, please give a lot of thought to the conversation on this thread. Share your own best ideas, think about ideas others come up with, and discuss ways to make the character as interesting and memorable as possible.

Be original, and don’t be afraid to be surprising! What if the main character had a really unusual background or ability or fear? What if she were a girl who could only come out in the moonlight because a witch cast a spell on her great-grandmother? If you’re like me, you’ll find that the more questions you ask and answer about the main character, the more the story will begin to write itself in your head!

For example, if I wanted to introduce the girl who could only come out in the moonlight, I might write: “Quill pushed aside the velvet drape and peeked out through the window’s glass to where the moon glowed, huge and silver, behind the oak trees. It was their nightly ritual, Quill and the moon each peeping through curtains to see if the other were awake.”

I can’t wait to see your ideas! Here’s my list of traits for brainstorming the main character. After you have your ideas, you can write a Crowd Sorcery Sentence, or two or three, that might introduce your character in the story.

1. Name

2. Appearance

3. Background

4. Personality

5. How is he/she different from others?

6. What does he/she most desire or hope for?

7. How is he/she strong?

8. How is he/she weak or vulnerable?

9. What does he/she fear most?

10. Your Crowd Sorcery Sentence(s)


The voting for hero and heroine is now complete. Go here to see our main character and learn the schedule for creating and voting on a villain and sidekick.

You can still add to this Hero and Heroine thread for fun.

Jet black hair with a streak of purple on the right side of her head. She has dark brown eyes and pale skin. Is always wearing a black, leather suit with a bow n' arrow slung across her back and her hair is always in s ponytail.


When she was little, Abrielle's parents were killed by the enemy kingdom of Gerendale. The only survivor from the attack was Abrielle. A mother wolf found her, and took Abrielle in as her daughter. Abrielle grew up learning survival skills, how to hunt for food, and fend for herself. When Abrielle turned sixteen, the wolf left her to live her life, so Abrielle went to Gerendale to get revenge for her parent's death. Currently she is planning her stealthy attack on Gernedale.


Obviously, Abrielle loves revenge. She is very outgoing and would never back down from a challenge.

What does she most desire or hope for:

She most desires to attack Gerendale and get revenge for her parent's death.

Nothing, at least that is what she thinks.

Your Crowd Sorcery Sentence:

Abrielle clamped her hand over the guard's mouth to muffle his screaming. Sliding her dagger to his throat, Abrielle asked him, "Tell me how to get to the King's chamber, or die." "Never!" choked the guard. "Your life," growled Abrielle pressing the blade into his skin. As the guard saw blood trickling down his neck, he swallowed and replied, "You can sneak in through the kitchen, which is on the left wing of the castle. From there, walk up the stairs and through the hallway. The door at the end of the hallway is his room." "Thank you for your service," whispers Abrielle. "Now I am afraid that I must kill you so that no one knows that I am here. Good bye!" She slit his throat and stealthily moved to the castle's left wing. Looking back at the dead guard, guilt crashed down onto her shoulders. He was an innocent man. But no, his kingdom killed her parents. Everyone in Gernedale must die! Pushing back the guilt, Abrielle pressed on towards the castle.

Emma (short for Emerald) Sahn 



Bright emarald eyes, dark straight brown hair that falls a little past her shoulders. Usually held back with a brown headband.  Her skin is slightly on the darker side, a bit more brown than tan. She wears bright colored clothes and usually goes barefoot. 


Emma never knew her mom. She had been brought up by her Dad and lived with her three younger brothers in a tiny disorganized house. Her dad homeschooled Emma and her brothers, and they didn't connect with the outside world much. The homeschooling helped Emma to become intrigued in reading. Though Emma sometimes got overloaded by the pure annoyance that comes with younger brothers, she tried to be okay with her life. Sure, she wanted to see her mom, but she tried to not let that control her. There was a longing inside her for something more than this peaceful life, but she ignored it. She used to love to relax on the rotted-wood porch, and think. Except there never was much to think about, until Maggie jumped into her life... shoving her into another world beyond that of the shady cabin. 


Quiet, but not afraid of a little adventure. She loves nature and poetry, you can often find her balancing on an old tree stump reciting Shakespeare to herself. She loves to read, pretty much everything and especially poetry. She often seems to keep herself inside, as if she had a tiny box around her heart where she put all of her feelings. Maggie helped to change that.  

How is she different from others

Emma has always had a love for nature, and she put it into words; Emma was a poet. Not that anyone knew. She knew that other girls thought that she was strange, and started rumours about the disappearence of her mother. Some often said that her Dad had something to do with it. Though Emma wouldn't let herself believe it, she also worried. Her Dad knew more than he told her. 

What does she most desire or hope for

Sometimes she looked into the nearby grove of trees and thought of her Mom. She always thought that her Mom might be the one who she could open up her little box of hurt and questions to. Isn't that what girls do with their moms? It turned out that she ended up sharing with Maggie, whether or not she meant to.


How is she strong

She has always been strong through the beauty around her. When she's had an especially bad day, she climbs a tree, usually a willow, and tries to fade into the silence. Sometimes she even hugs the rough bark of the trunk and pores out her feelings. Leaving the bark soft and damp with tears. She always feels stronger after sharing with the willow and feels like she can continue with life.

How is she weak or vulnerable 

She's carried her box of hurt inside so long that nothing much seems to matter; not friendship or even love. Sometimes even her desire for her Mom seems hopeless. A single push could knock her world topsy-turvey and dampen her willow with more tears. She didn't have much to hold onto, and could bend and break easily making herself an easy target for bullies.

What does she fear most

That her Mom did'nt love her. That she'll never come back. Thoughts of her Mom are the only thing she has to hold onto, even though they are filled with sadness, questions, and tears. 


I tensed and slowly began inching across my limb. CRRAACK! The tree dropped from under me and I sailed through the air: straight into the arms of another girl! I immediately tensed up, as I did around other people.

" Hi," she said, " I'm Maggie, whats your name?"


Maggie is a girl with curly dirty blonde hair that befriends Emma. As described in my "Sentences" above, Emma had had a not-so-great day, and was trying to relax, and think in her willow tree. 

After a short time, Maggie and Emma become great friends. Maggie, without really trying, helps Emma to become herself agian. Maggie is bold, funny, a little clumsy, but graceful in her own way. 

But... Maggie has her own struggles too, and Emma owes Maggie a favor.

1. Name: Rohan 

2. Appearance: Dark brown hair, wears a long leather coat with elvish markings, underneath the coat he wears a stained, charcoal-brown shirt and long black-brown pants with patches on the knees. He also wears dirty brown knee-high boots with the tops turned down.

3. Background: His parents are in debtor's prison because someone stole all their tax money, and he lives on his own in the countryside in their old house, which is now occupied by many animals, inckluding a family of sheep in his parent's room, and a shepherd dog in the kitchen. However, none of the animals have gone near the attic because that is where the house-fairies have taken up their abode.There are some annoying gnomes in the garden, who make a sport of pelting the birds who live in the porch roof with stones. On nice nights, Rohan often sleeps in the porch to scare away the gnomes and get away from all the animals inside. Rohan's renheart is a blue fox.

4. Personality: Clever, good with animals, very kind, and is good with the small magics of fixing things and healing things.

5. How is he/she different from others? He can do amazing acrobatics in the air, which could signify some Fey blood, (the aforementioned small magics are human, not Fey, and most people have one or more that they are talented at) and although most people are wary of the Fey folk who populate the small places of England like pests, Rohan doesn't mind them so long as they don't hurt the animals.

6. What does he/she most desire or hope for? To free his parents from debtor's prison and become an animal healer, which is a prestigious role in that part of England.

7. How is he/she strong? He is kind, clever (especially with animals and fixing things), and when his renheart prompts him he can be very brave. (his renheart carries the courageous part of his spirit)

8. How is he/she weak or vulnerable? He isn't very brave without his renheart, and he is too kind, which makes him rather gullible.

9. What does he/she fear most? That he will be caught and put in prison for being a vagabond with no apparent parents, which would shatter his hope of saving his parents and becoming an animal healer, and the guards would probably kill his renheart and he would never get to help another animal.

10. Your Crowd Sorcery Sentence(s): Rohan had been in the nearby town many times for market day to buy food, but every time he was deathly afraid of being seen by guards. Suddenly Rohan heard the shout of soldiers, and he started running. Just the old routine, he thought and the mind-voice of his renheart, Luke, echoed through his head, continuing the sentence. Run and dodge, hide and wait for them to go past, and we'll be perfectly safe. Like always. You worry too much, Ro. Rohan ducked behind some barrels in the nearest alleyway, and smiled as he shook his head to clear his mind of his worries. But you know it takes only one time to be caught, and then where'll I be? Everything will be over and gone. I don't worry, I take the right precautions.

1. Name- Brynn Larkspur


2. Appearance- Long
auburn hair falls in waves down to her knees, sometimes covering her pale face,
though usually pulled back into a braid. Her sea green eyes are large and
attentive, and take in every detail of the world around her. Her face, though
simple, is attractive in its own way, except for the odd shaped scar slashed
across her cheek. She is slender and agile, yet also strong despite the fact
that she is small, which helps her do what she loves- dragon riding.


3. Background- Brynn
lives with her Uncle
Roi (who’s more like a father) and her stubborn palomino,
Chokecherry, in a cottage, facing the sea. She never knew her parents, because
they vanished before the girl was old enough to remember them. The only thing
she knows about her mother’s death, is that she got the scar the day her mother
died. Her uncle and she are very close, partly because she has no other
relations. He is the only one who knows that she’s a dragon whisperer.


4. Personality- Brynn
is-well, what can I say?! Quirky. At home, she is talkative and funny, but she
knows when to hold her tongue. Despite the fact that she talks a lot, she keeps
the most important things to herself.


5. How is he/she
different from others? The fact that she is a dragon whisperer makes her pretty
different, huh? Brynn just isn’t your normal 13 year old! She also knows very
little about her early years, her parents, and her scar, which makes her
different than others.


6. What does he/she most
desire or hope for? Brynn wants to, most of all, find out the mystery of her
childhood. What happened to her parents? Were they still alive, or were they
dead like she had been taught to believe?


7. How is he/she strong?
Growing up without parents has taught her how to work hard, cook, garden, and
do things on her own. But her strength isn’t just on the outside; Brynn is
independent and loyal to the few friends and family she has. She knows how to
ride, both dragons and horses, and is good with the crossbow.


8. How is he/she weak or
vulnerable? Brynn is afraid of what others may think of her because of her
scar. She is also shy, and sometimes a little wary of making friends.


9. What does he/she fear
most? Brynn is worried that she’ll never find out what happened to her parents,
and who she really is.


10. Your Crowd Sorcery
Sentence -- There were only two people who knew Brynn Zaria Larkspur’s secret.  And only one if you didn’t count Chokecherry,
her strong-willed pony, who never listened to her anyway. Uncle Roi (who wasn’t
really her uncle) was the other. Brynn’s secret was deeper than the forest that
grew behind the cottage they lived in. In fact, that’s where the secret most often
took place…..


“Oh, come on, Zouwrin!”
explained Brynn, exasperated. The dragon just grunted, and, if it’s possible
for a dragon to roll his eyes, that is precisely what he did. Brynn couldn’t
help but laughing.


        “All right, buddy, let’s
try this again,” she said, her green eyes staring into his golden eyes. She
spoke to him soothingly bringing the halter-the dragon’s plight -- slowly to his
muzzle. With an inward victory, she slipped on the halter. The dragon had
relented, at last. Her work was done for the day.

Phoenix Lee Brooks, 13



Short and skinny.  Golden hair.  Blue eyes and very long, golden eyelashes.



Not to be religious or anything, but in my
fantasy world (actually it’s this world but it’s a fantasy), everyone is
reincarnated when they die.  But there
are three Rememberers, spirits who never forget anything, including their past
lives.  Phoenix is one of them.  The first thing he remembers is a bright
flash of light, and there he was— one of the first microorganisms in the ocean
at the dawn of time.  He is not always male
or human.  He can be any living thing of
either gender, but always has the thinking capacity of a human.  Currently, he is male, and currently, he is
human, and currently, his name is Phoenix Lee Brooks, so that’s how I’ll refer
to him.  He has no idea who or where the
other two Rememberers are, and he wants desperately to find them so he won’t be
so lonely.  It 2020 is and Phoenix lives
in a small town in Pennsylvania.  His
parents have no idea who he really is.



Phoenix is serious and scholarly.  He likes to take part in spelling bees and
such, due to his talent for remembering things. 
Phoenix is always polite, but he isn’t very good at talking to people,
so he’s a loner.  Phoenix has a very
strong sense of right and wrong.


How is he/she different from others?

Phoenix is a Rememberer.  Duh! 
Also, he doesn’t goof around like the other boys at his school.


What does he/she most desire or hope for?

Phoenix wants to find the other two Rememberers.


How is he/she strong?

Phoenix never forgets anything, and is very
book-smart.  He tries to do the right
thing at all times.  Also, he’s not
afraid of dying.


How is he/she weak or vulnerable?

Phoenix is terrible at working with other
people, and he is not at all athletic.


What does he/she fear most?

Never finding the other Rememberers, and
being lonely forever.


Your Crowd Sorcery Sentence(s)

All the passengers on the plane were screaming,
except for Karen Rodriguez.  She was just
thinking about how she hadn’t died in 33 years. 
Karen couldn’t help wondering who she would be next time.

There was a crash.

Then pain.

Then a flash of light.

Then Phoenix Lee Brooks was born.

I have read every one of these entries suggesting heroes and heroines, and WOW! I am truly amazed at the fascinating characters and original details that you have come up with. The selection will not be easy at all! As I've said before, any one of these could be the main character of a story. I've counted 76 different characters here (77, if we include one that is inseparable from the main character the writer created). You can all see for yourselves how fantastic these are. So if your character doesn't get chosen as a finalist, you should NOT feel bad at all. It doesn't mean that your work wasn't great. It's just that, somehow, we have to select finalists and eventually one hero/heroine to appear in the story. I can say with admiration that your character IS great. It applies to every one of you! Thank you all for putting so much thought, care, and enthusiasm into this thread!

1. Name: Evelyn Robin

2. Appearance: She is a tall and pretty 14-year-old girl. Her hair sweeps down to her waist but is usually tied back in a braid with a small, satin red bow. Her eyes are a soft blue and she wears a pastel colored dress every day. Her skin is pale.

3. Background: She comes from a rich family and has always been an only child... or so she thinks. When she was 5 she was in a bad car crash and injured her leg badly. Now, she has a slight limp. She is very smart and could read chapter books when she was 5. Her parents don't pay much attention to her, mostly due to the fact that they are always away on business trips to different countries. Luckily, she has a housekeeper, Mary Johnson (40 years old, also pretty) who is her best friend.

4. Personality: She is a very timid and shy character. She isn't very good at making friends, so therefore doesn't have any. However, she is quite nice. She loves to paint and play violin and piano.

5. How she is different from others: She comes from a rich background, for one, and is abnormally smart. Also, when she plays the violin or piano, the song is so sweet that a songbird will come to her window and sing along with her. This helps her in moments of anger or depression. It calms her nerves. This songbird is her only other friend. No none else knows about the songbird.

6. What she most desires/hopes: She hopes that one day her parents will actually notice her and be kind to her and at least spend some time with her. She also hopes that she will find a friend of her own age.

7. How she is strong: She is kind-hearted (usually) and will help others, even though she isn't good at making friends.

8. How she is weak or vulnerable: She is timid and shy. People bully her because of this.

9. What she fears most: She fears cars, because of the car crash, and will never go near one.

10. Crowd Sorcery sentences:

Evelyn stomped home in a rage. When she got through the door, she hurled her bag onto the nearest chair and sat down next to it, head in hands. Mary, the housekeeper, came through the kitchen door.

"What happened?" she asked.

"I was bullied by this boy in school. He called me snake-hair, because of my braid," Evelyn mumbled.

"Why don't you go upstairs and play your violin? It sounds ever so beautiful when you play, and it does calm your nerves," Mary suggested.

"Alright," Evelyn replied, less furious. She got up slowly and walked upstairs to her music studio, where she proceeded to tune her violin. When finished, she got up slowly and opened the window. Then she picked up the violin and started to play.

Immediately the room filled with heavenly notes. Evelyn played airliy and with ease. Soon, a voice filled the room, singing in harmony. Not human.

It was her songbird.
