Wiki says...
An archetype (/ˈɑrkɪtaɪp/) is a universally understood symbol or term[1] or pattern of behavior, a prototype upon which others are copied, patterned, or emulated. Archetypes are often used in myths and storytelling across different cultures.

This new topic is all about archetypes. archetypes (as defined above) are basically that “type” of character that you can commonly identify in film, literature, and story telling in general. So the challenge is to pick a archetype from bellow, and build a character around it. Story can be of your choosing, as long as the character embodies that archetype.

(There are several different archetypes, bellow are just a few examples for the purpose of this challenge!)

*The Tyrant King/ Mad Scientist

*The Young Hero/ The Rebel/ The Loose Canon

*The mentor/ Wise Old Man

*The Trickster

*The Femme Fatal/ Love Interest/

*The Sidekick

Now... run!
