How to Create Heros?

Lately I was struggling through my latest script trying to make the hero more likable. Looking through my class notes I gathered the following:
  • Determine the key strength and weakness of the protagonist. Weakness can be a flaw or fear.
  • The protagonist should have a good motive (for his/her actions) too.
  • Remember no one is interested in just reading/seeing someone become rich etc - if however you make the protagonist struggle through for someone's cause (like a loved one, or the ailing grandma or the friend who lost his limbs etc) then it makes it interesting.

I found these links good: Hero's qualities and Create likable heroes

Make heroes believable, likable (give good qualities), larger than life (must do great things that many never accomplish) and desirable (give some special charm).
