This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is “Redemption Arcs“. Someone in the group explained that it meant “a character who’s previously been an antagonist or even a villainous character gets a story arc which redeems them.”
2. Killian Jones (Once Upon A Time) — Hook became a pirate after his brother died. Then he fell in love and lost her. Next century or two the only thing he wanted was revenge but through the series he changed into a hero.
4.Xcor (Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R Ward) — He tried to kill Wrath II (the king) for a few times but after being healed by Layla (the fallen Chosen) he was struck with the Vampire’s mating instinct. Xcor wanted to become a king but gave it up for Layla.
5. Rhysand (ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas) — Rhys did some questionable things while he pretended to be a bad guy but it was later all explained why he did, what he did.
