The Garden of Forking Paths

The Garden of Forking Paths

Protagonist

Character Role Analysis

Yu Tsun

There's really only one character in this story that we get to know very well, and that's Yu Tsun. He's narrating his own story, so the fact that we're party to his most private thoughts makes us feel intimately connected to him. We want things to work out for the guy, even though he doesn't always portray himself in the most flattering light.
