Answer the question, “Whose story is this?” Usually a story has one, but a novel can have several protagonist characters. Antagonist: The antagonist character fights against the hero, the protagonist, of a story or novel. The antagonist can be destructive, bad or evil. The antagonist can be a character, an animal, an inanimate object, or nature. An example of this is the whale in Moby Dick. Round characters: They can recognize, change, develop, and adjust to situations. They are complex, have many sides, and touch lives at many points. They usually change in the story because they profit from experiences. Flat characters: They do not change, develop, or grow in the story. They are the opposite of round characters. They usually have one or two traits and can be summed up easily. Example, Gollum in Lord of the Rings is a flat character because he is obsessed with one thing, the recovery of the ring. Some stories can have all flat characters, for example, Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Dynamic characters: Characters that change and grow in a work of literature. They are round characters. Static characters: Characters that remain the same throughout the story or novel. They are flat characters. Process
