Side Characters

21 Apr

If you were introduced in a book, have you ever wondered what kind of character you would be?

If you weren’t the main protagonist, what would be your role? Would you be part of the protagonist’s squad, going with him/her/them to face the villain? Would you be one of the villain’s minions?

Or would you be a random side or background character? Perhaps you’d give the protagonist directions, teach him/her/them how to fight or how to navigate the land. Maybe you’d give some sage advice, or maybe you would just be the person yelling at them to get off your lawn.

Rachel and I did a similar post like this on our Double Jump blog, and I was curious as to how it would extend to book characters. Would your book-self be named? Would you show up in later chapters, or just have a one-time appearance and serve your purpose?

Obviously, everyone is the author to his/her/their own story… but have you ever thought about how much you help other people in their stories?

    Oh man. It’s weird because the way I see myself is not how other people see me.
    If i were looking at my role in other people’s lives, I would say I’m small in the back ground, like the cook or the maid, you see a one shot of as she delivers breakfast.

      But, hey, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I wonder how other people would describe you as a “side character.”
