Types of Characters

Types of Characters These are the common types of characters we see in literature. Round characters Flat characters Dynamic characters Static characters

Round characters have various characteristics or traits. A round character can change or grow. Readers see more than one side of a

round character. Readers see one side of a flat character. Flat characters are usually minor characters and reveal one or two traits. Flat characters may

be used as a contrast to a major character. Characters who develop and change are not only round characters, but often dynamic. Scrooge changes from a tightfisted, greedy unhappy man to one who was generous and loved life. Gru changes

from a villain set on destroying the world to a loving father. Static characters are one dimensionalreaders see only one side. Static characters stay the

same and do not develop. Readers learn little about this character. Static characters are flat characters. The Protagonist is central to the action of a story and moves against the antagonist. (The Main Character)

The antagonist is the villain or a force which opposes the the protagonist. Can you figure out what kind of character these are?
