Main CharacterA generic term for the primary actor in a story. The Main Character differs from the Hero/Heroine in that he or she is the person followed throughout the story, but is not necessarily the character attempting to resolve the plot. For example, a Babylon 5 story may have Vir Cotto as the main character, but he may merely be the onlooker through whom the reader observes the activities of the Heroes and Villains. See 'Antagonist', 'Protagonist', 'Supporting Character', 'Point of View'.
