FedCon 28 | Workshop | Figuren für SF-Romane

There shall be three of you:

  • The asteroid scout, the attractive prospector and the smuggler.
  • The two comrades and the brutal officer.
  • The kidnapper, the victim and the liberator.

But why is the Three the magic number for the main protagonists of a novel or a film? Can the villain also be courageous, honest and intelligent? What qualities does a heroine need for a reader to identify with her? What characterizes the characters? Why does the audience measure the main and secondary characters differently? Skywalker or Kleinschmidt – what should our literary children be called?

In this workshop by and with Robert Corvus at FedCon, the participants develop figures for different stories, take them apart, vary them and reassemble them.

Anyone who brings writing materials and a good mood can take part. The participation fee is included in the FedCon entrance fee.

With Robert Corvus we welcome one of the most successful fantasy authors of Germany at FedCon. Currently, The Imago Project is the sequel to his science fiction novel Fire of Void. He also writes for the biggest science fiction series in the world: Perry Rhodan. Together with Bernhard Hennen adapts Robert one of the roleplaying basic adventure campaigns The Black Eye, Die Phileasson-Saga, as a twelve-part novel series. Both the fourth and fifth volumes were on the Spiegel bestseller list. Independent fantasy titles such as Die Schwertfeuer-Saga and Berg der Macht were published by Piper Verlag.

Robert has been a full-time writer since 2013. Before that, writing was a hobby and sideline for 25 years. During this time, novels were published under his pseudonym Bernard Craw in the universes of BattleTech and The Black Eye.

Robert Corvus was a soldier, management consultant and project manager in international corporations. He travelled around the world with his backpack, made a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela and taught karate. After working in Münster and Sindelfingen, he now lives in Cologne.
