I've been working on the characters for my latest book and ran into an amusing situation.

I was going to make the paladin dark skinned but then this thought crossed my mind immediately…

"Oh wait he's the one that dies first".

So now if I do make him dark skinned, it'll end up being the black guy dies first trope.

He's the only human on the team.

The main character is technically dark skinned, but she's more along the lines of being grayish purple. There is a gnome and a dwarf too, so they're humanish. Could tinker with them a bit.

Other character is vaguely wolf-like, so not much skin to show save for the face, neck, and hands.

See, in my mind that happens because he's a paladin.

They tend to bite it because fighting for the forces of light exclusively is stupid requires sacrifice. What could be more noble?

Maybe I'm just misreading, but part of me feels I should take that as an insult.




@Thanotos Omega

I favor writing non-humans merely out of creative drive. Why fill your story with humans when you have the infinite creative potential of the fantasy genre.

I didn't expect you to, for what it's worth.

And i should probably clarify that i meant characters and their ideas.

Spurred on by thinking about how silly A.I. rebellion stories are to me.

A bugbear of mine.

I'm hardly Einstein myself, but I still cringe every time we get the designated "smart" or "nerd" character and half their dialogue begins with "By my calculations…"

That's why they normally have to add a human flaw. Because in reality, a perfect AI would kick our organic asses without the slightest difficulty.


@Dustcan

One of my characters is "nerdy" in that he has a pet obsession with beasts and monsters, knows a lot about the creatures of his world, and geeks out to the group when he sees one.

Like a proper nerd when exposed to their pet interests.

@Zincy
How to subvert the trope: have him dark-skinned but not black.
Ppl who are ambiguously brown ain't necessarily black.

Also an organic can kick a perfect AI's butt provided they have the same weight class.
Reason being: the perfect AI is ironically, have human flaws and its own exploitable idiosyncracies. The perfect AI perfectly imitates human intelligence and consequently its stupidity as well.

Not to mention a perfect self aware android with a working cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, digestive, lymphatic, reproductive system etc would just be an organic anyway.

Watching the last episodes to Camp Cretaceous S3.

Why is it that like half of Jurassic Park/World protags are worse than the "villains"?

The entire protagonist cast in Jurassic Park 2, for starters. They all eco-terrorists. And the villains from the movie…just wanted to make that tourist attraction that was the reason the dinosaurs were made in the first place?

Clone girl Whats-Her-Name from Jurassic World 2. Does untold damage and death by releasing the dinosaurs for stupid reasons. And the villains were just auctioneers? Not even necessarily trying to weaponize the dinosaurs this time.

And now all the kids from Camp Cretaceous. Gets a bunch of people killed and jeopardizes their escape off the island…for no real reason. They say it's to prevent more hybrid dinosaurs from being made, but that's really dumb to begin with and as we know by the movies ultimately pointless. And the villains in this season…just wanted data that belong to them, and would've given them a ride off the island despite not knowing they were there to begin with?
