I'm writing on a new series' story outline, and I was hoping for a bit of feedback from my fellow comic writers.
So I have 5 main characters, but I was wondering, do you guys like the idea of each character having their own introductory chapter, where they have a bit of stand alone story that is sort of independent of the main plot, albeit effected by it, or should I find a way to incorporate their back stories without diverging from the main plot line, which focuses more on war?
Here's one of the concepts:
Growing up in a Bastari nursery, Chaeren did not have parents, but he was never lonely with all the other children. It is forbidden for Bastari half breeds to marry or have children, so as babies they are sent to live with others of their kind and sterilized before reaching adulthood. Despite his upbringing, Chaeren became a proficient member of the clan, proving himself a skillful hunter. However, when he contracts Crow’s kiss, a deadly illness common amongst Bastari clans, he resigns himself to his shortened life, and distances himself from his loved ones. When a mountain beast attacks his friends, he sacrifices himself to help them escape, but instead of dying, he becomes the chosen of guardian goddess, Nimilitzli.
