STEP FOUR: MEETING WITH THE MENTOR
You all know them. Merlin in Arthurian legend, Dumbledore in Harry Potter, Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars. Even if there is no actual character in this role, your hero must always make contact with some source of wisdom; something that gifts them knowledge and/or confidence to continue on their journey.
- Is your Mentor a character? If so who are they? Were they once the hero of their own story?
- What gifts does your hero receive from the mentor? Knowledge? Confidence? Tools? Weapons?
- Other characters can wear the mask of the mentor as they teach your hero things. Do any of your other characters wear the mask of the mentor at times? What purpose to they serve by doing so?
