Traits of a Fantasy Hero/Heroine I like:
- They’re brave. Think any of the members of the Company of the Ring here.
- They’re loyal. Think of Samwise’s committment to Frodo.
- They don’t give up. Even when the odds are against them, think of Faramir and his refusal to let the Hobbits be taken by the Orcs.
Some Fantasy books I love: ANYTHING by J.R.R. Tolkien, Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising, C.S. Lewis’ Narnia, just to name a few.
