Wikipedia defines ‘Character Flaw’ as such: “In the creation and criticism of fictional works, a character flaw is a limitation, imperfection, problem, phobia, or deficiency present in a character who may be otherwise very functional. The flaw can be a problem that directly affects the character’s actions and abilities, such as a violent temper.”  Sometimes, even character attributes that might seem good, can be seem flawed when taken to extremes.  For instance, in Dungeons & Dragons, a paladin follows a strict moral code while also serving the will of his deity.  This typically includes never lying…which can cause problems for a group of adventurers.  Write a little Flashy Fiction that shows other characters reacting to your protagonist’s character flaw.
