I've been working on a story that is generally a sci-fi, but my biggest block is the race for the protagonist.
I was making a human protagonist, but I realized it was overdone many times. I wanted to make an alien protagonist, but it's kinda a challenge to make it believable.

So, all I'm asking is vote my poll and choose which race is recommended for the protagonist of my story and why you chose the vote.

Going to go with alien. It will be harder, but in the end your story will be better appreciated. And you said you were up to the challenge.

It would help if we knew what aliens you're planning on using. :ermm:

I have planned for almost like three alien races, though I only have one alien race named called Trovax.
I'll give you details in the PM.

I'm leaning toward alien, mostly because, as you said, humans are overused as protagonists in sci-fi stories.
But, I have to agree with H. I would need information on the alien races you have to make a fair decision.
