So to make sure that people like your characters. You have to give them unlikable qualities. Moody, uncooperative, stubborn to the point of being stupid. I'm not saying to make them unbearable, just human.This applies to the physical aspect as well. Don't be afraid to give your heroes scars, crooked teeth, and other physical imperfections that you can actually see. I never liked the cliched heroes so be creative.
|Scars and a ferret= awesome|
|Pointed ears and hairy feet, not the usual trademarks of a hero.|
|Not sure if he counts as a hero|
|Gold teeth and way too much eye makeup still the best.|
