Hero/HeroineThe character in the story working to advance the human (or alien) condition or trying to resolve the problem presented in the Plot. While heroes and heroines are generally associated with the side of 'Good’ or ‘Light’, if the story is presented from the point of view of a character associated with villainy, the Villain can become the hero. According to Joseph Campbell's ‘Hero of a Thousand Faces’, the hero has to overcome death, become superhuman and/or go through a sort of metamorphosis in order to reach full potential. In Babylon 5, all the major characters undergo variants of this hero test. See 'Main Character', 'Protagonist', 'Antagonist'.
