I've made another question which is an attempt to make all the characters be chameleons. What chameleons are?, in case you dont know, chameleons are characters that the main character / reader is not 100% sure of their intentions, thoughts and motivations. You don't know if he is the good guy or the bad one. Of course, a character may not be a chameleon all the time, but there could be moments we doubt of his/her intentions.
(If you want more about what a chameleon character is, I suggest you search for it on Vogler's writings about the Hero's Journey.)
So what I'm trying to do? In short:
- A third-person oniscient narrator which is also an entity that cannot read what is inside the characters mind.
There are multiple MC's, not only one.
The characters may share his thoughts with him but they may also lie (which I think it is not a very good idea)
But I dont have enough reading baggage with this kind of narrator in order to make the characters be chameleons. In fact, I've never heard of a story with similar idea before. I'm not an experienced writer as well and I'm afraid this is too much for me. But the idea looks to good to be thrown away.
Is there another way I can make all the characters be chameleons?
Yes, the question looks too broad and it maybe does not even have an answer. I want to know if this kind of thing is possible, and if it is possible, how could it be done?
