Antagonist

Character Role Analysis

The Banker

We're gonna call it. Despite the fact that both of these dudes aren't exactly the Old Spice guy, the banker definitely does seem worse than the lawyer, at least in terms of the doing-harm-to-others category that antagonists tend to dominate. After all, whatever happens to the lawyer, at least he is doing it to himself and doesn't seem to be affecting others in the process. On the other hand, the banker is ready to actually kill the lawyer in order to hang on to his money. Murderer? Antagonist.
