A common theme of mine in my books is Moral Ambiguity. Here I always try to make each character as three dimensional as possible, including and most especially the "villains", wherein they have rational, far-sighted reasons for their actions and just understand the world better than most. I've always enjoyed the Machiavellian sort of villains because it really puts the typical concept of an evil-intentioned villain in turmoil.
Something I most often aim for my characters is Harmony in Diversity. Everyone represents a take on the different archetypes, and though there is sometimes friction between them, they always somehow get along. You will see that my straight-backed, stiff-necked, and moody protagonists are always offset by a cheerful, optimistic, and carefree character. An example of this, taking from the only novel I posted on Wattpad, Song of Crimson, Crimson and Azure. Maybe I just like seeing people heckle each other.
I grew up reading the books of Dumas, Poe, Sir Conan Doyle, Robert Stevenson, Stoker, Stephen Crane, and am currently following Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files as well as Alison Sinclair's Lightborn and Darkborn books.
