Flawed protagonists.

Do your protagonists have real flaws that could bother a reader?

It’s a good, valid question. As (hopefully) my most well rounded character, let’s talk about Ayah.  For a woman who literally can do anything, speak every language and has more money than most countries, she’s a bit intimidating.  What is her biggest flaw?  Well, she’s a snob.  To those who don’t know her, she’s condescending and aloof.  While she’s not one dimensional, she is only concentrated on a single goal.  Her interests do not lie elsewhere.  Her obsession and lack of ambition towards anything else doesn’t bother Ayah in the slightest, but does lead to some friction down the road with some of the other characters she interacts with.

Does this make her interesting?  I certainly hope so!

Do you have any Grey Poupon? But of course!

What is your character’s biggest flaw?
