Character Expand all Is the Dramatica Theory Too Narrow? Why do the character elements change position in the different throughlines? How can I effectively illustrate the different character interactions? How do turncoats and character reveals work within Dramatica? How do the character elements work in each of the throughlines? Can there be more than one Influence Character? Do I have to show the Influence Character’s Resolve? Is a Success Outcome dependent on whether the Protagonist wins? If the Main Character is the Protagonist, should the Crucial Element be part of the Archetype? If the Antagonist changes, will that result in a Happy Ending? Can the Antagonist change? Can an Antagonist be redeemed? Does the Impact Character have to be a Driver character? Do you have to keep the Archetypal Motivations Dramatica assigns? Why are character interactions limited only to the Motivations set? Is the Emotion Archetype always the Love Interest/Influence Character in a story? Can one character replace another within the structure? What about stories with too many characters? What can I do about a story with two Main Characters? Why can’t the Main and Influence Characters both change? Can you clarify the difference between Equity and Inequity? Can a Main Character’s Goal change? What Dramatica term/s is analogous to “obstacles” the Main Character must overcome? How can I use Dramatica to help write a story with two Main Characters? Does Dramatica account for stories with multiple Main Characters? What relationship does the Influence Character have to the rest of the Objective Characters? In the Archetypal structure, does the Influence Character have to be among the Drivers? Is there an example where the Influence Character is a mere passenger in the Objective Story? If the Influence Character is a passenger in the Overall Story, will it weaken that story? Is an Objective Character the same as the Influence Character? Regarding the Plot Sequence Report, should I look at purposes in terms of motivations? Can a character portray any characteristic? How do I build my characters using the Storyguide? Do I need to explore ALL the character interactions Dramatica suggests? Why are the character examples from “Star Wars” limited to only the motivation set? How does Dramatica predict the order of character development? How do I interpret the objective character elements when forming complex characters? Are there any rules as to what objective elements the Main and Influence Character should have? Must you maintain the relative position of a character throughout the Build Characters window? Why can’t the Main and Influence Characters both grow and change? Can the Influence Character role be played by different characters? Does the Influence Character have to be a person? How can I identify the Influence Character? Does the Influence Character’s Problem-Solving Style matter? What term is more accurate, Obstacle Character or Impact Character? Protagonist or Antagonist? I can’t decide. Contagonist: Why? Can the Main Character decide both he and the Influence Character are wrong? How can I make sure the audience knows who the Influence Character is? The Influence Character’s Impact on a Steadfast Main Character Do Dramatica Archetypes Sync Up with the Enneagram? Where does the “You and I are alike” concept come from?
