Video description
After my video on Strong Female Characters, I got a couple requests to do one on male protagonists as a way to sort of "balance things out." Initially I wasn't too interested, but after taking a closer look, I started noticing some interesting patterns in what otherwise appeared to be a totally blank slate character archetype. So that's what I've got here for you today!
