The first lesson on Fantasy characters
There are many fantasy novels and writers outside; published and unpublished. For those who aren't published yet and are planning to write a fantasy; here are some thinks to watch out with.
1) Original characters.
You heard it before; but to make a character original: give them flaws. Though this doesn't mean you should give them a "tendency to push people away"; that has been done as much as other things. Unless you can put a twist to it; don't do it.
And of course; don't forget your most powerful source of originality: the villain. The villains who are evil "just because" don't belong to a novel. Try giving them good points; loyalties and stuff. A reader will like it much more if they understand the villain's motives. I’ll dig deeper into the villain later.
Watch out for part two: original plots!
