Character Development Oversights
aldero posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionDo you enjoy Bionicle? Great. Do you enjoy it's storyline and lore? Great. Do you like it's diverse cast of characters with the exception of Toa Matau, Kiina and Berix? Fantastic. Do you think that some of these characters could have been written better and developed more? Splendid! Now we're on the same page. It's no secret that I have a deep affinity for this franchise, even if I've been inactive for a good few months now. Keeping that in mind, I would love it just that little bit more if some of the characters were given more attention and written more tightly. While the vast majority of these characters are well-written, flesh-out and characteristically unique, some are regrettably bland at best, and unlikeable for the wrong reasons at worst. I'm talking about characters such as Turaga Dume, Axonn and Makuta Miserix, just to name a few. Characters like Artahka and Karzahni are supposed to be mysterious and enigmatic, I get that, but characters like those that I just previously mentioned are begging for more development. The main storyline of the franchise is fortunately more focused and intimate as a result of that, but all that these characters need is a serial to flesh them out, similar to how Lesovikk was developed as an emotionally-broken nomad who had retired their Air Sword long ago due to personal guilt that ended up haunting him for the rest of his days. That's some splendid stuff right there. Now, would you mind doing for some more characters? That's where you, the magnificent reader who decided to waste their valuable procrastination time on my insignificant article, come in. I'm sure that I'm not the only person who regrets that Makuta Miserix did not get the focus he deserves... right? I'm also assured of the fact that the vast majority of the other people on this forum have a longer list of characters that they want to see developed. With that said, what characters would you like to see developed more, and how would you go about it?
