Character Role Analysis

Buck

Oh, we’re going to choose…Buck. After some not-so-lengthy deliberation. Buck’s character arc is the focus of the story. We watch him evolve from a happy four-year-old basking in the California sun to a tough competitor, a faithful companion, and finally to the leader of a wolf pack in the wild. Buck is noble, admirable, and certainly has us on his side – all very protagonist-like qualities.
