I sketched and thought about some memorable characters to help me create my protagonist.
I also created a mood board specifically for thinking about how my female lead will look.
Selfless, Independent, Pure, Courageous.
Supernaturally powerful (anime/fantasy style) appears small, sweet and weak.
Buffy Summers- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2 sided: very average, relatable, pretty teenage girl vs secret identity: vampire slayer, ruthless killer of beasts, protector of human kind, she represents the good vs. evil.
Her appearance is deceptive
Her gifts make her isolated.
quick witted, innocent.
Protagonist i.e. the player.
Average human with extraordinary guts, she's fearless and never gives up.
Not physically powerful
Mysterious- the strong silent type
tackles her warped destiny head on
Mindy/Hit Girl- Kick Ass
2 sided: sweet harmless little girl vs secret identity: killing machine.
Represents good vs. evil
Naturally powerful (comic book style though)
I think Hit Girl is closest to what i'd like to base my female lead on.
