Hi, Ruchama

I love the way the background provides a human basis for the flaws (centered around Pride). This would be a terrific model for working on the protagonist’s flaw because empathy and bad behaviors are both present here. If you can do this for your main character (which may be painful), that would be a major step toward a steep character arc and a powerful story. It’s not easy, but it looks like your imagination is engaged.
