The pathetic fallacy or anthropomorphic fallacy is the treatment of inanimate objects as if they had human feelings, thought, or sensations. The pathetic fallacy is a special case of the fallacy of reification. The word 'pathetic' in this use is related to 'empathy' (capability of feeling), and is not pejorative.
I guess I use that...although it's odd that you guys have it as a central theme.
What I really love to use, however, is hamartia, a.k.a tragic flaw. All of my main characters have one, and most of my secondary characters, at that.
