I'm of the opinion that Moonwatcher herself is fine.... in Moon Rising. It's down the line she turned into a plot device rather than a character in her own right. And you're not wrong on the NightWings concept being super overused. xD
What I don't like about the late 2nd arc books, is that they try to make out that An Animus dragon is something you should just want to be. Like they make out Qibli as a power-hungry dude who wants to be an Animus. Though I do like Darkstalker, he's the only reason the whole series ties together after the DoD.
I'm low-key fine with Qibli being a power-hungry dude. My problem is, it doesn't go anywhere, narratively speaking. He just has an episode of wanting power and poof! He's still a nice guy. No one thinks less of him for wanting power or being hungrier for it or has a moment of understanding with him. It's just... there to force a parallel with Darkstalker.
And I'm not that hot on Darkstalker. He makes for a decent enough villain, but Peacemaker and how much this fandom washes away the many wrongs he's commited for love/vengeance makes me roll my eyes.
Hmmm, I would say maybe Senna Sandtongue or Odora so far. Senna's such a crabby, bitter, sharp-tongued dragon who still wants to do the right thing because it's right while having a density of flaws and Odora's just the gentlest, kindest OC I have while having the face and body of a scarred beast.
To me, a foil is defined by the differences between them and a character. Those differences in the foil then highlight a certain quality of your character through contrast. Say, if you have a character who's lazy and smart, then their foil would be someone who is hard-working and dumb.
A mirror character, however, is more defined by the similarities between them and a character. Those similarities in the mirror character then highlight and complement a certain quality of your character through shared traits. So, if you have the same lazy and smart character, then their mirror would be someone who's also lazy and smart.
I'm starting on the personality part right now and I am thinking of going with foil. They can be opposites like he enjoys being social and gets along well with others in groups and his singing partner which is a SeaWing loves being in control and have difficulty relaxing. She even has difficulty taking breaks to socialize and takes a much needed nap! 😅
Always ask questions out of your characters, Eowyn. It makes them more fleshed out, more real and human when they can answer you back, when they can answer with every inch of their character. Don't overdo it, but make sure you can ask your characters questions that they can answer back. :D
Okay. I'm still half way with the personality and I'm thinking of restarting it so I can ask questions and make him better. I just wrote whatever, lol. It's like I don't want to improve if I just write whatever.😅
