Are you a hero or a villain?

Every good story needs a hero and a villain. The hero is nothing without his dreaded foe. The villain has little purpose if not to attempt - and most likely fail - to defeat the hero. Heroes and villains. Good and evil. Ying and Yang. But as time went on, it got a bit more complicated than that. Sometimes, the hero would take a wrong turn, or develop a flaw- or make a potpourri of bad decisions along with a gallery of negative traits- and shall become a anti-hero. On the other hand, a villain may feel guilt for his/her actions, not be aware that his cause is wrong or even be held to do evil against his will. And thus, we have the anti-villain.

Also along for the ride are the turncoats; characters who like to take a walk on the side of sainthood and sin, often switching alliances and changing sides. You may even have a true neutral; a character who doesn't seem to be compelled to fight for either cause, but still manages to be significant to the story. Which are you in a work of fiction? Would you be the protagonist of your own story? Or the Lucifer of someone else's? Or any manner of things in between? Take this test and find out. Enjoy!
