I love the cycle of strife and redemption. A “good” character can go too far in the pursuit of “good” and lose their way, but the intervention of a pure-hearted individual or the love of something beyond themself can bring them back to who they meant to be.

That’s a major theme for my current character, and it’s an interesting part of my group. What is a ‘hero’ is a great thing to explore in Exalted.
