I ran across Chris Winkle’s article “The Eight Character Archetypes of the Hero’s Journey” on the Mythcreants website a month or so ago and wanted to share it with our readers. Winkle covers the different roles characters take on in the myth structure or the hero’s journey. Complete with pictures and examples of these roles from popular media, Winkle’s article does a great job giving an overview of the roles and what their impact on the story is.
So whether you’re writing a hero’s journey or simply want to understand character archetypes better, check out this article.
Now… go write something!
