Willful: Led by “I want,” desires, habit, convention, appetite, influenced, drifting, impulsive, passion, weakens will
Governed by Will: Choosing, deciding, conscious, definite, self-directed, “Premier of Mansoul,” aims beyond self, constant, strengthens character
Note: Obviously some characters change as the books progress. I’m not sure how I will handle that. For Frankenstein’s creature I added a footnote. I’m trying to decide now, concerning “Till We Have Faces”. And some characters are just hard to place, such as most of the ones in “The Iliad”.

Footnotes (MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!)
- Frankenstein’s creature is governed by will (other than, perhaps, the killing of William). At first he seeks good ends, but when he loses hope of acceptance he turns to evil.
- I counted Jekyll & Hyde as the same person, because I believe they were one mind, not two, as Jekyll claimed.
