Character Archetypes
Seasons
Archetypes are cookie cutter "patterns" or cliches that appear and reappear in all sorts of stories.
Patterns ("themes") develop in a way that the same type of events tend to happen in stories

Certain items (or symbols) tend to mean the same thing no matter what story they show up in.
The Father

The Mother

The Child

The Wise Fool

The Maiden

The Hero / Anti-Hero

The Deceiver
The father: Authority figure; stern; powerful.
The mother: Nurturing; comforting.
The Child: Longing for innocence; rebirth; salvation.
The Wise Fool: redefines "fool." Looks or acts funny, but proves how we often misjudge people.
Provides guidance; knowledge; wisdom.
The Hero: Champion; defender; rescuer.
Heroes are constantly changing, and they represent the values of their society.
The Maiden: Innocence; desire; purity.
The maiden is the damsel in distress -- the character that is always in need of rescue.
The Deceiver: liar; trouble-maker.
The deceiver is a "bad guy" incarnate. Personified (or symbolic) evil!
The Scapegoat

The Outcast

The Temptress

The Best Friend
The Scapegoat: Blamed for society's sins.
Victim, innocent, must be sacrificed.
The Outcast: wandering, restless, rebellious.
Can see the society with a more objective, "fresh set of eyes"
The Anti-Hero: Champion; defender; rescuer - but usually an outsider to the society.
We root for anti-heroes in spite of themselves.
They break the rules (or make their own), but they save the values of their society.
The Temptress: seductive, beautiful.
The temptress represents "original sin"and the fall of man.
The Best Friend: loyal, supportive, compassionate.
The best friend is always full of good advice and counsel.
Archetype
the original pattern or model from which all things of the same kind are copied or on which they are based
Archetypes
Are familiar on purpose. They are written into a text like anchors to help us understand it.
Warmup

Homework

Closure:
Write 1 paragraph explaining what you have learned in class today.
