My book is Ender in Exile. There are 8 types of characters to a book. Main/Major, Minor, Static/Flat, Dynamic/Round, Protagonist, Antagonist, Nemesis, and Sidekick. The definition of a main character is the character of the story that is central to the story. Everything revolves around them. The main/major character in my book is Ender. A minor character is almost a major character, but the minor character isn’t focused on as much by the story. They may develop their own back story and show up a lot, but they are not the main character. A Minor character in my book is Valentine.
A static character is a character that stays the same throughout the entire book. They don’t change ever. A Dynamic character that changes throughout the book. This can be any character in the book. A protagonist is basically just a main character who needs to do something in the book, but the antagonist is the one who gets in the protagonist’s way.
A nemesis is different from an antagonist, because and antagonist is defeatable, but the a nemesis is undefeatable. however, a nemesis doesn’t always have to be a person or character. a nemesis can be failure, a disease, anything that is a block in the protagonist’s progression and is undefeatable. Sidekicks are usually a static character and help out the main character. They are usually also dependable to be loyal.
