I had an idea however I'm not so sure if I can really execute it in the way I wanted to anymore. I've just been a little confused on whether or not it would even have the effect I want. It may be a little too early to do this as well. I was planning on killing off a character who I'm not sure if I've established as much as I should have. The MC's adopted sibling is expected to be 'killed' in Chapter 3 with the description of what dying may feel like to try and pass it off. However, I'd have left some small details in the writing to support otherwise when the truth comes out that before he died he'd be saved by two other people just barely. The reason why I wanted to do this fake killing was so that I could implement an antagonist being closely involved with the main cast. A shapeshifting man, he believes that he kills this character and soon adopts his form so as to gain the trust of and work with the main protagonist. It was all to help the story with this idea in mind while also allowing the brother himself to actually come back at a certain point after making a recovery. I don't know if I should explain more or if this idea is good or not, but I was thinking that the brother himself could continue being established through the idea that said shapeshifter has his memories as a way to make sure he still gets some sort of characterization without actually being him.
