what's the difference between a major character and a minor? Is a minor like every other character besides the major characters?

  • English -

    There are usually only two or three major characters in a story, possibly two or three more in a book.

    Major characters are also usually referred to as "round characters" -- http://fictionwriting.about.com/od/glossary/g/RoundCharacter.htm -- and the minor characters, as "flat characters."
