Transcript of Character

Character dynamic stock foil flat round static foil characters stock characters round characters static characters flat characters DYNAMIC characters A dynamic character undergoes an important inner change, as in a change in personality or attitude literary stereotypes
e.g. the crazy neighbor, the English butler, a figure who grants wishes (like a genie or fairy godmother) the perfect man, etc. A foil character is complementary character whose situation or actions parallel those of a major character, and thus by contrast sets off or illuminates the major character.
