Say you have your Heroine. In most settings she has at least one Female Enemy. It doesn't matter what your genre or setting is. In High School it's that one girl that always picks on the Heroine. In Fantasy is might be a petty Princess. This female enemy HATES your Heroine and goes well out of her way to ruin your Heroine's day. She is not the Villain of the story, but rather a side character that reappears causing grief. The problem in most TV series, movies, and even in roleplays, this female enemy of your heroine is portrayed as shallow and a bitch - FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN TO CAUSE CONFLICT FOR THE HEROINE. The kind of characters are often called Scary Sues, because they lack depth and purpose. They are just there to make the Heroine look better or like a victim. This is terrible story telling! Even your side characters and enemies should have more than one dimension. WHY does this girl hate your heroine so much? Why is it worth her time and energy to seek out and make your character miserable? What is this girl like when she's not being a pain in the Heroine's ass? In this challenge, you are going to design an enemy for your Heroine that is MORE than just "the shallow dumb bitch". Give her personality and purpose. SOME THINGS TO AVOID Hating the Heroine because she is "too nice". Hating the Heroine because she is jealous of her beauty. Hating that all the boys love the Heroine. Hating the Heroine because she has so many friends. Hating the Heroine because she is the "outcast" or "loner". Hating the Heroine because she is the "new girl". SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT How does this girl interact with people who are NOT the Heroine? Is there a difference? What is this girl's inner personality? The parts she doesn't show to the public? What reasons would she have to hate your heroine? Are they legitimate reasons or misunderstandings? Were they once friends and then had a falling out? Are they complete strangers and things like fear or bad first impressions came in to play? Are social opinions or standards affecting this girl's behavior? What are some things your Heroine and this girl have IN COMMON? What are some things that could bridge the relationship between these two girls? Can it ever be bridged?
