This isn't about an actual book but rather one I'm working on. I'm trying to develop a character (I'll leave personal characeristcs out) that is somewhat of a superhero. Eventually I'll pitch this as a movie.
There are two types of action movies. Fantasy (Matrix, Blade, etc,) and then theres Realist (Braveheart, etc)
I want to bring these two worlds as close together as possible. In otherwords...even though this is Fantasy...it has to be Real.
So here is where you guys come in. I need to come up with a style for this guy. He needs to have quick hands, be evasive, and have powerful kicks and punches. He grapples, (quick throws) usually for throwing a guy into another's path. He uses a sword. (not all the time) He can also fly. However...he uses flight to fight on the ground and give him leverage. No flying airiel battles. (It's just better when theres a wall to throw someone through it.)
So...any ideas. He is definatly not a Ninja. So none of that. (he can be nijitsuish though)
