Your Non-typical Characters are the one that do not fit any one archetype or another. These are the most variable characters of your book.

None-typical Character Definiton

Your Non-typical Characters are the one that do not fit any one archetype or any other of these characters: Straight Acting man, Effeminate guy, Queen, Drama Queen, Flaming Queen, Drag Queen, Twink, Bear, Tranny, or you beautiful Boy Toy.These are the most variable characters of your book. These characters are the ones that you write about what they actually do and not what they look like, act like, or behave. Anyone can be these characters.

None-typical Stereotypes

As with the Top 10 Gay Male Character Archetypes, these characters are mostly straight men with wife and kids. They are typically hard to pin down. The media has not made stereotypes of these characters. This is good, because it makes your audience think about the straight man in their own lives.

Reality Check

You know these men. They are either your brother with the many girlfriends, your co-worker the lady-killer or if you are a woman, your husband. You walk among these characters and never know their sexual appetite.

Writing your None-typical characters

When you write your Non-typical Character Archetype, write with respect, and are careful with offending them. Even though they are not part of the LGBT community, they are not GAY by any means. They are your regular Straight Acting men in daily life.
• The Sugar Daddy is more discriminate.
• You know who is on the Down Low. However, you cannot say anything without risk of ruining their lives.
• My, all time favorite The Flirty Straights who get what they want by flirting.
