There Is No Dog

Antagonist

Character Role Analysis

Bob

Ever notice that there's no devil here? Who needs it when you've got Bob. Really, Bob is his own worst enemy. No one really stands in his way, but somehow he keeps tripping over his own two left feet and causing all kinds of problems. Plus he's a cad, he is killing people with his mood swing weather, and he's the reason why people die. We think that totally qualifies him for the antagonist role.
