STATIC CHARACTER A character that DOES NOT CHANGE throughout the course of the story or literary work. Example:
DYNAMIC CHARACTER This character undergoes a significant physical or emotional change because of or related to the action in the plot. Their beliefs, attitude, lifestyle, and/or outlook are dramatically changed. Example:
FOIL CHARACTER A character who contrasts with another character (usually the protagonist) and so highlights/emphasizes various facets of the main characters personality. A foil usually has some important characteristic in common with the other character. The author may use the foil to throw the character of the protagonist into sharper relief. Example:
MAJOR CHARACTER A character who plays an important role in the progress of the story. They contribute heavily to the action/themes, conflicts, etc. and appear regularly throughout the story. Example: Michael Orer in The Blind Side
