Character Analysis – I have identified most of the important characters in each story and
listed them for you. You need to do a character analysis for each of these characters.
There are only three questions for each character, but below each of them I’ve given you
some examples of ways to answer them, such as types of characters, or ways of
describing them and the significance of their appearances or behavior.
1. Identify what type of character this is. A character could be two or three
different types.
Characters can be
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
protagonists, The main character around whom most of the work revolves. This
does not always mean the good guy.
antagonists, The person who the protagonist is against. This is often the villain,
but not always, and could even be a force of nature, set of circumstances, an
animal, etc.
major, These are the main characters. They dominate the story. Often there are
only one or two major characters.
minor, These are the characters who help tell the major character’s tale by letting
major characters interact and reveal their personalities, situations, stories. They
are usually static (unchanging).
dynamic (changing), See below under “Look at specific things.”
static (unchanging),
stereotypical (stock), This is the absent minded professor, the jolly fat person, the
clueless blonde.
foils, These are the people whose job is to contrast with the major character. This
can happen in two ways: One: The foil can be the opposite of the major character,
so the major’s virtues and strengths are that much “brighter” in reflection; Two:
The foil can be someone like the major character, with light versions of the
major’s virtues and strengths so that the major comes off as even stronger.
round (3 dimensional), This means the character has more than one facet to their
personality. They are not just a hardcore gamer, but they also play basketball on
the weekends.
flat (1 dimensional), This is the character who is only viewed through one side.
This is the hardcore gamer. That’s all there is to the character.
2. Describe the character – this means both physical (if it’s significant) and their
characteristics
•
•
•
Is their name significant? Look for both literal and symbolic meanings,
and consider if they reflect the character
What is the character like? Are they funny, intelligent, devious, etc.
What does the character do that defines their character? Do they save
people, manipulate them, threaten them, etc.
•
What does the character look like? This may not actually be important. It
depends on the character. So consider whether or not their appearance is
symbolic or representative of their character.
3.Discuss the conflict in the story and the character’s place in it
Often the characters are described in relation to the conflict within the story.

External
•
•
•
•
•
•

man vs. man: This is the protagonist versus the antagonist. Snow White versus
the Wicked Queen.
man vs. machine: This is when the machine is the enemy. Many robot-centric
novels have this issue. (This is sometimes considered a subset of man vs.
man.)
man vs. nature: Robinson Crusoe on the island. Hansel and Gretel lost in the
forest.
man vs. animal: Captain Ahab versus the white whale in Moby Dick. The wolf
in “The Three Little Pigs.” –Usually the animal is a predator and the man has
become prey for some reason. It could be humorous, though, the man is trying
to catch the dog, who runs away and has the main character chasing him all
over creation. (This is sometimes considered a subset of man vs. nature.)
man vs. fate or destiny: Sleeping Beauty can’t help pricking her finger. A man
who has been late several times (due to circumstances beyond his control) gets
in a traffic jam and is an hour late to work and gets fired. The fact that it has
happened several times and is not his fault is the crucial point.
man vs. society: This is when a character battles societal norms. Winston
Smith in 1984. Huck in The Adventures of Huckleberrry Finn.
Internal
•
man vs. himself: This is when the character has an ethical dilemma, stealing to
feed his family or watch them starve. Lie to the government and save the
people in the basement or tell the truth and have them taken away. This is the
cartoon equivalent of the devil and the angel on either shoulder.
•
man vs. his mind: This is the character with internal problems that are not
ethical, but mental. An example, as was pointed out in the comments, is the
character with schizophrenia or one who is bipolar. How does the character
deal with his/her limitations? What do they have to overcome? How do they
overcome it? Is it harder or easier to overcome something that is a part of the
character than it is to overcome something that is outside of the character?
A good character analysis might look something like this:
1. Luke Skywalker – protagonist, all of the action centers around him.
Dynamic, round – his personality changes from the beginning of the
movie (naïve, impulsive farm boy who doesn’t want to get involved, to
heroic pilot who saves the day and keeps calm in battle)
2. Young, late teens. Naïve and inexperienced. He has little experience
with the galaxy, having never been far from his home, let alone off his
planet. He’s impulsive and immature at first, but eventually gains a
little maturity and control. Although self-centered at first, he ends up
doing what is best for the galaxy, not himself.
? Physically, he’s a typical hero type – cute, blonde, and blueeyed.
? His name is significant – Luke – from Lucius – the
Lightbringer, as he embodies the Light Side of the Force. His
name is also derivative of George Lucas and he may represent
Lucas and his fight against the evil Empire of the large movie
studios. Skywalker – he walks the sky, this may embody his
destiny in the larger galaxy.
3. Conflict –
? External
? man vs man – Luke vs Vader and Tarkin
? man vs machine – Luke vs the Death Star and the TIEs
? man vs society – Luke vs the Empire
? Internal
? Man vs himself – Luke vs his impulsiveness, his
temper, etc
