In this section we hone in on the all-important protagonist of the story. We look at the protagonist's desire, will power, empathy, protagonist archetypes and the vital concept of character arc. We also look at designing a supporting cast around the protagonist and the importance of an antagonist to create contrast in the protagonist.
