Revision: How to Write a Character Analysis

A strong character analysis will:

1. Identify the type of character it is dealing with

2. Describe the character

There are different kinds of characters. Characters can be:

  1. Protagonist (heroes), The main character around whom most of the work revolves.
  2. Antagonists: The person who the protagonist is against. This is often the villain, but could be a force of nature, set of circumstances, an animal, etc.
  3. Major characters: these are the main characters. They dominate the story. Often there are only one or two major characters.
  4. Minor characters: These are the characters that help tell the major character’s tale by helping major characters interact and reveal their personalities, situations, stories. They usually do not change throughout the plot (unchanging).
  5. Stereotypical characters: Examples of these can be the typical good guy, the rich man who is cruel, the poor lady who is a victim, the clown, the studious Asian kid, the clueless blonde.

Describing a Character
