With me and this is a bad thing, depending on how you look at it, but my minor character or so dull and lifeless in some way.
Like I really don’t care about my minor characters at all. Those characters are just there as background. Which makes sense, till I learn that minor characters can have their place in the story’s plot and be helpful towards the main protagonist and even the supporting characters.
So, they eventually become a supporting character when they prove their worth story/goal wise.
Those aren’t my main characters in the slightest. Though the old version of Red Reign may have changed that a tiny bit, but it is still not as great.
Anyway, my question to all is, are you kind towards your minor characters?
Do you have a minor character who ended up becoming a main supporting character who helps the MC, as they move along through the story?
Is there a minor character who is still somewhat important, even that character has a fairly small role?
Do readers and maybe some writers care about the minor characters these days? Is it more about the characters who help move the story along than those characters who are just there for no clear real reason?
Is there a minor character(s) that you actually find a bit more interesting that the MC and the SCs, whether in your own novel or famous person’s novel?
How would you define a minor character? In terms of role, story, and overall character?
Thoughts and feelings?
