Character Role Analysis

The Misfit

The Misfit is definitely the bad guy: he's a murderer, after all. What's more, he's a criminal who seems to do bad things for the sake of doing bad things without remorse. He's the one who confronts, threatens, and kills the family of the protagonist, and ultimately the protagonist herself. There's an antagonist for you.
