Character Role Analysis


Not to sound dramatic, but the entire world functions as an antagonist here. All of our main characters are victims to things like violence, accidents, cruelty, poverty, racism – the list goes on. No one person is the source of conflict for our protagonist; no one person is keeping them from their happy ending. Nope, even better: the entire world is out to get them.
