    You know how important it is for a character to have internal integrity – and how difficult that can sometimes be. Here’s a helpful system from classical myths.
    Warrior, Monk, Scientist, Magician, Lover – find and develop the best ArchePath for your characters, regardless of gender or age. The ArchePaths are Paths a person follows, a style of being, a type of approach to life. Any archetype can be on any of the Paths.
    • Learn the hopes, fears, strengths, weaknesses, symbols, and styles of each
    • Get the 3 Levels for each: beginner, adept, expert
    • Explore the 3 Approaches of each: mental, emotional, synthesized
    • Build conflict by pitting characters on the same Path against each other
    • Juxtapose characters on different Paths to the best effect
    • Use the possibilities for growth and change: that all-important character arc

    These 5 classic ArchePaths are valuable profiles for creating dynamic, believable characters and enriching your stories with these powerful mythic paradigms.
