Original characters - leaving aside the Mary-Sue question, why do some people love to read and write about original characters, while others can't bear them? What are the benefits of including original characters in one's stories? What makes a character original, anyhow? If Tolkien just barely mentions the name, and an author develops the background and character, does that qualify said character as original or not? What makes an original character good/interesting/readable?
