Character Motivation

So the other night I had a scene come to me for Topaas.

It’s been a while since I’ve had that story in mind so it got me on the pathway of thinking about my villain’s motivation.

In the scene that came to me, his accomplice/lover is the one who is trying to push him to do a heinous act of violence to achieve their goal but his motivation isn’t as strong as hers is.


Now I need to figure out what his full motivation is. What would keep him going if he didn’t have his accomplice? What could lead him to do whatever it took to achieve his goals?

That’s my project for the week.

I’ll mull over it while I go to Salt Lake Comic Con tomorrow and Saturday.

Have a great weekend!
