Theory of Character Evolution – Discussion
Character evolution is effectively the roughly equivalent to a character arc. It’s the central journey a character takes on over the progression of the story, with a substantial transformation or progression as the final outcome. Maybe the character has a moral to realize, past trauma to move past or a “fatal flaw” that holds him back. That’s where the story comes in. The story is your venture to aid the character in changing into who the character needs to be…for better or worse.
