The 12 Common Archetypes By Carl Golden

I’ve come across a list of cliche archetypes. And while you can base your characters off these, make them seem a little more relatable by merging things together. Carl Golden describes each particular archetype, their Motto, Core Desires, Main Goal, Greatest Fear, Their Strategy for doing things, Their weaknesses, Talents, and what they can also be known as. This isn’t exactly the best main character generator of sorts but if you’re having issues defining who your characters are these can help you to create a more in-depth person to write about.
