I show two examples of the “hapless hero” archetype. Most main characters need to show emotional growth, but not so with the hapless hero. You can give this type character a change in character, if you plan to never use him again. What good is a bumbling fool, if he no longer bumbles?

I use this type character and I realized a parody of baptism scene can work but not a baptism due to a new path in life. John Kennedy Toole uses Fortuna in his novel, Confederacy of Dunces, as do I. All fools dance to Fortuna’s tune. Don Quixote depicts an era I’m interested in and Miguel de Cervantes satires much the same things I do.
