Archetypes

A post on Rick's journal about character archetypes has had me pondering. Certainly I have a set of archetypes that I usually play, but now I'm wondering how each of my characters fits into them, and if I'm falling into a roleplaying rut.

Then I started to try to list all of my characters and got bogged down. Good grief but I have a lot of characters. Perchance someone needs to get a life!

Active home games:
Rick Jones's Adventure! Game: Mira Codera, daughter of the pulp hero "Wild Bill" Codero and a Tibetan princess. She inherited both his mental and physical disciplines, making her a powerful martial artist and mentalist. Archetype Mira fits one of my strongest archetypes -- the expert outsider. She's very good at what she does, but was raised in a cloistered/limited environment and is awkward when dealing with the modern world and social situations.

Daggerford (Adam Norman): Eren Willowburr, halfling Mage. Eren is very young, obsessed with magic and a little nuts -- comes with having grown up next to a wild magic zone! She's bouncy, enthusiastic and passionate about everything. Of course, she has the attention span of a goldfish if she's not intensely focused on something. Archetype Child growing to adult. The fun in playing Eren is watching her develop.
