|Awesome 80s mullet hair.|
1.) Must drive, own or steal a motorcycle.
2.) Have unkept, a little too long hair that covers their eyes - to make them look a little more, well, secretive.
3.) Have possession of a blade in the form a dagger, switchblade, seraph blade, sword and know how to use it VERY well.
4.) Have a pet name for the heroine, for instance FancyFace (Bo's name for Hope), Sweetness (Patch's name for Kayla), Little Girl (Jace calls Clary this for half of COB), Sweetheart (Han's name for Leia - but we'll get to Han later).
5.) Sarcastic remarks are all they can think of when in a tight situation - usually the intense romantic kind.
5.) Have been or currently are a soldier, warrior, (shadow)hunter, or mercenary.
6.) The heroine calls them dangerous like it's a good thing.
7.) The hero has a jaded past that most likely includes killing things, ie demons, spies, imperials.
If you have any to add...leave a comment!
Now, this thought led to my next one. As I was thinking on my new character Orion, I realized that he wasn't the typical bad boy. He had been a knight, anointed by Arthur, but after centuries in captivity in the mythical realm of Avalon, he's more jaded, more cocky, and outright selfish. I started thinking of characters that had these characteristics....But I'll get to the anti-hero and why he may be even badder than the bad boy in part 2 next time......
