''The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes & Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes'' is primarily focused on RomanceNovel characters: the viewpoint character (heroine) and the desired mate (hero). While it's not the all-encompassing vision that efficiently collapses all possible heroic characters into sixteen easy-to-remember classes, it's well worth taking a look at, especially if you plan to write for the Romance genre.

The book goes into detail on strengths and weaknesses, as well as upbringing, and even discusses how the characters interact with each other (a Spunky Kid, for example, can be paired with a Lost Soul to become an automatic ManicPixieDreamGirl). Furthermore, google the book and you wind up on the homepage of one of the authors, where she goes into detail on the ''villainous'' versions of the heroes and heroines.

This page will serve as the index for at least two pages (one for the Heroes, one for the Heroines), and more if need be.

[[AC:Notes]]
* I'm summarizing to the best of my memory, with help from the website. When I get a chance to check out the book again, I'll check my facts, clarify the concepts, and remove this notice.
* Since several of the archetypes are pretty straightforward [[TheEnneagram Enneagram]] types as well, I've noted the Enneagram numbers when the ties are particularly clear.
* I'm still trying to understand the world of copyright infringement; I hope I haven't gone too far in my summary, but to do much less than this would make the summary of little use on a site like TV Tropes. I hope I'm within my rights to explain all the archetypes and relate them to the tropes on this site.
