Inferno

Inferno

by Dante Alighieri

Antagonist

Character Role Analysis

None

Since there are only two main characters – Dante and Virgil – and they don't fight each other and they don't really fight anyone else, much less defeat anyone (Hell takes care of that for them), there is no true antagonist.
