Foil

Character Role Analysis

Miyax and Kapugen

A father-daughter foil pair is not exactly typical. But what makes Kapugen Miyax's foil is his relationship to civilization and the wilderness. Our girl Miyax learns to love the wilderness. She grows to dislike civilization. Kapugen, on the other hand, starts off keeping true to Eskimo traditions and then turns toward civilization. Their journeys are opposite, and voilà: foils.
