Characters are the often the center of a fantasy work so why do some seem to be typecast? Why do so many wizards seem to echo Gandalf and so few vampires step far from the mold of Dracula. Why do writers pick certain types for their heroes and villains and how does the story change when you go against type? What character tropes can fantasy writers retire and which ones must never be given up?
