45 Master Characters: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters
45 Master Characters: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters by Victoria Lynn Schmidt offers heroic and villainous sub-types of eight female and eight male archetypes, along with 4 Friend archetypes, 6 Rival archetypes, and 3 Symbol archetypes. The author connects each of the main archetypes to a figure from Greek or Egyptian myth, and describes in depth the characteristics of that archetype: what they care about, what they fear, what motivates them, and how other characters see them. She then shows how to tweak the character, take it a bit too far, and craft a villainous version.
