Character Role Analysis

Teddy McArdle

Generally speaking, the "Guide" role refers to a character who guides or mentors the protagonist. In this story, however, the protagonist needs no guidance – rather, he is the guide himself. Teddy acts as a spiritual mentor for Nicholson, and perhaps for the reader as well.
