I have done some great thought about the companions of the main character in my third fantasy book. I am thinking of making these characters a mix between the Top Gear boys, Boromir, Legolas, and Gimli from The Lord of the Rings, and Prince Noctis’s companions in Final Fantasy XV. They will be like the Top Gear boys in the sense that they will have their quirky personalities and often bicker with each other. They will be like Boromir, Legolas, and Gimli in the sense that they each are good fighters and wield their own specialized weapons. They will be like Prince Noctis’s companions in the sense that they are fiercely loyal to the main character and maintain an informal friendship. These characters will be princes from three of the southern kingdoms of Gradaia. They come into the main character’s life to improve relations between their kingdoms and the new Imperial Dynasty. Even though these three princes come into the emperor’s life for political reasons, they eventually become his genuine friends.
