Maleko Hale – Main Character

Goal—To keep his family’s Kona coffee farm afloat and successful

Motive—To carry out the family legacy his father entrusted him with

Flaw—Inability to trust anyone, including himself, in part due to having the love of his life exit without a word and return ten years later with his daughter

Stakes—Losing coffee farm and losing chance to have his family

Maleko Hale needs to keep his family’s Kona coffee farm afloat because his father entrusted him to carry out the family legacy, but his inability to trust others and his own decision making gets in his way. After ten years, the love of his life, Becca Stowers, returns to the island with his nine year old daughter in tow. If Maleko cannot overcome his inability to trust, he may not only risk losing his family’s coffee farm, but he may also lose the family he’s always dreamed of and the chance to raise his children there.

Becca Stowers – Main Character #2

Goal—To return to the life she misses on the Big Island

Motive—To give her daughter a relationship with the father she’s never met

Flaw—Guilt of leaving Maleko and never telling him of Malorie’s existence, as well as, devotion to her father who forced her to leave Hawaii

Stakes—Lose the love of her life and her daughter

Becca Stowers wants to return to her life on the Big Island after ten years because she wants her daughter, Mallorie, to have a relationship with the father she’s never met, but Becca’s guilt and devotion to her own father gets in her way. If she cannot over the guilt and devotion, she may not only her second chance at love but also her daughter.

 

Though I always outline my characters in detail with history/personality/goal, doing this in this format really made me think hard about these two characters.
