The story of the underdog has always been one of the most enjoyable themes in storytelling. I like how a character becomes an unlikely hero and overcomes immense odds. That is essentially what my fantasy trilogy will be about. My protagonist will start out having a normal life of comfort until he loses everything in one fell swoop. Afterwards, the protagonist is on the run in the wilderness with only a sword in his hand and the clothes on his back. Over time, the protagonist will gradually gain followers after a series of insane chance encounters and overcoming impossible odds. In fantasy, one could call an underdog story “from rags to riches”.
