There’s a great blog post about Lesser Known Archetypes over at http://writershelpingwriters.net/2017/05/three-more-lesser-known-archetypes/.
I examed my Fractions of Existence book to see how I used these.
The Penitent –
“that character who’s seeking cleansing, forgiveness, and redemption from a dark past”
In Fractions of Existence, that archetype is represented by Xavier.
The trouble is, Xavier doesn’t recall what he’s done. He’s just convinced that he’s done something. After all, why else would his mate be gone?
The Curmudgeon –
Fractions of Existence still has one, but it’s no longer obvious. This character is the narrator, who introduced himself in the one-paragraph prologue. But I’ve since cut that prologue, so now readers* will have no idea that there is a narrator until they meet him directly later in the series. (A bit of a breaking of the fourth wall.)
*Except for readers of this blog. Congratulations on finding out this insider information!
The Sycophant –
Meet Tred’s children and then tell me if they fit this. I believe they do.
