Han Shot First: Creating Anti-Hero Characters

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Brain and Ray will discuss the fascination and creation of anti-hero characters in fantasy and SciFi media that reject the 'MarySue' banality of the 'scallywag' in favor of character with flaws that are actually detrimental, rather than a means to highlight how dashing, unique, or special he or she is. Referencing the differences between characters like Han Solo and Jane Cobb, Fafhrd and Thomas Covenant, Drizzt and Elric of Melibone, and Major Girth and...(you seriously didn’t think we WEREN’T going to self promote did you??) Thomas and Witte discuss their own motivations to create “horrible-yet-occasionally-loveable” anti-heros and the trials and pitfalls involved.
