though there are a LOT of interesting articles on the site of tv tropes, this one caught my attention. - tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…
it's a list of character archetypes from a book called 45 Master Classes: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters. i also thought it was amusing that Sonic is classified under Hermes: The Fool.
now, reading the sub-articles linked for male, female, and support classifications, what most fits a character of yours? (note: you don't have to pick just one archetype for a single character)
let's see now...some of my characters.
Gold - Hades: The Recluse (his slight introversion) and Poseidon: The Artist (his interest in robotics engineering)
Silver - (not my character but i'll list him due to Gold being his brother) Ares: The Protector (my fanon of him being a "Chronos Guard" aka time knight) and Hermes: The Fool (his naivety and friendly disposition)
Cog - Poseidon: The Artist (he's a well known engineer) the Magi (as an adoptive father to the brothers, and a teacher to Gold)
Mephiles - (again, not my character, but still important) a loss of sanity turns him from Hades: The Recluse (he's my fanon universe's version of a grim reaper / death god) to Osiris: The Punisher (sadistic demon)
Tina - Artemis: The Amazon (she's a good fighter) and Best Friend / Investigator (to Silver, as she works with him)
Tikal - (last time, not mine, but important) Hestia: The Mystic (kind and generally creative, another student of Cog's) and Lover (i ship Silvikal so hard)
Primrose - Aphrodite: The Seductive Muse (she's somewhat of like Rouge i suppose, but older), Athena: The Father's Daughter (this pretty lady is pretty powerful), and Lover (to Cog, as they're longtime friends)
