'''45 Master Characters: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters''' offers heroic and villainous sub-types of 8 female and 8 male archetypes, along with 4 Friend archetypes, 6 Rival archetypes, and 3 Symbol archetypes. The author connects each of the main archetypes to a figure from Greek or Egyptian myth, and describes in depth the characteristics of that archetype: what they care about, what they fear, what motivates them, and how other characters see them. She then shows how to tweak the character, take it a bit too far, and craft a villainous version.

[[AC:Notes]]
*I have the book here, but I don't understand it as much as I would like to understand it; therefore, my summary is a little suspect, but I don't think I'll stray too far from the basic idea. Once I understand it better, I'll check these pages, clarify the concepts, and remove this notice.
*Since these characters overlap to some degree with [[TheEnneagram Enneagram]] types and the HeroesAndHeroines archetypes, I'll note whenever these ties are particularly clear.
*As I said on the HeroesAndHeroines page, 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'm pretty sure I'm within my rights to explain all the archetypes and relate them to the tropes on this site.
