Traiterous heroic (kind of like "Hideous Kinky")

Compelled as I was by seeing kradical do it, I took the Which Fantasy Archetype Are You? quiz. To my great cry of "Whuh?," I first got

What Fantasy Archetype Are you?

The Traitor
You are the traitor! You remind me of Smeagol (Lord Of The Rings), Lancelot (Arthurian Legend), Darth Vader (Star Wars), Mr. Tumnus (Narnia), Hunter (Neverwhere), Wormtail (Harry Potter) and Michael Cypher (Wizard's First Rule). You are often an average or okay guy, but for whatever reason you end up betraying the forces of light on their quest. Don't let the glory of the Unlikely Hero or maybe a crush on the Pillar-of-Strength Love Interest tempt you to evil! Sometimes you make a turnaround and fix your mistakes, which is good, because you invariably feel bad about what you've done. Take things a little easier, it'll help.

I didn't like that result. So I tried again and, happily, got

What Fantasy Archetype Are you?


The Unlikely Hero
You are the Unlikely Hero! Others like you are Frodo (Lord of The Rings), Young Arthur (Arthurian Legend), Luke Skywalker (Star Wars), Peter/Susan/Edmund/Lucy (Narnia), Richard Mayhew (Neverwhere), Harry Potter (Harry Potter) and Richard Cypher (Wizard's First Rule). You were happy to just live out your life as a peaceful schoolboy/farmer/wood's guide. But alas, greatness was thrust upon you. Don't let the hordes of The Totally Wicked Villain get you down, you have your Seasoned Veteran Friend to protect you and you almost always end up with the Pillar-of-Strength Love interest. Heed you Mentor well and keep your chin up, hero! You are simple, humble and kind but possess great potential for truly inspirational heroism, bravery and strength in dark times.

...and that I can get behind. Especially the "end[ing] up with the Pillar-of-Strength Love Interest" part!

...except that the pining-for-the-Pillar-of-Strength Love Interest is just the sort of temptation that can lead to the Traitor stuff. Oh dear. I'm screwed.
