Never sympathize with your characters. You loose control when your characters actions and feelings, their problems and emotions manipulate you. You do have to Empathize with them, to know and understand why they did what they did.

;; Heros are only as great as the obsticle they have to overcome. Don't feel sorry for these people, feel gracious, because if they had not faught, they would be subject to a trite and meaningless existance, insted of becoming someone's hero.

If you choose to aknowledge them in your writing, then they depend on you to paint them, create them, remember them and push others to do the same. Only accept this task if you are willing to sacrifice yourself in the process. Fiction is fiction, but when you inject nonfiction, especially historical nonfiction, you may loose your self. Many authors never had the chance to recover from this, and that is why the genre is so bleak.
