A. Anthem- Protagonist
Anthem is the protagonist or the "good guy" in the story. "It is good to be=20
your child, Earthmaker," this statement tells us that Anthem is a Singerian=20
(a Christian). "The power of EarthMaker will be yours, to bear the Singer an=
his Song before the kings of Terra. I believe he is a static character=20
because he stayed essentially the same through out the entire story. And=20
Anthem answered, "Admit your emptiness, and open to the Wind. Receive the=20
Stigmon of the Singer," this was at the beginning of the story where Anthem=20
was witnessing. This was closer to the end and Anthem was still witnessing=20
"Both Earthmaker and his Singer are here. And you may be unchained if you cr=
out your guilt." He is a metaphorical character of an amalgamation of variou=
different characters from the Bible. What I gathered was he was all of the=20
disciples. And mainly Paul, because Paul's name was Saul and God changed it.=
Anthem's name was Madman but God changed it to Anthem. He sung (witnessed)=20
the Ancient Star-Song to the people of Terra (earth). His character is=20
revialed through direct exposition because it is told exactly what he is,=20
"From now on you will be Anthem, for you will be the Herald of Anointing,"=20
B. Sarkon- Antagonist.
He was the opposing character, rival, or "bad guy". "As the wail rose in the=
streets, Sarkon, The World Hater, at a triump which he knew would be short=20
lived." I believe he was a static character because he stayed the same=20
through the whole story. "He (Sarkon) hated Terra as he always had." I=20
believe he was revealed through direct exposition, "Sarkon, the World Hater=
He is a metaphorical character to Satan. He was an evil character and you=20
quickly detest him. "Meanwhile he (Sarkon) enjoyed seeing Terra at the point=
C. Invader- Protagonist
He was another good guy in the story. He was a static character. He was=20
revealed through indirect revelation because you had to draw your own=20
conclusions through what the author wrote. "A fiery brilliant radiance=20
proclaimed his mighty name- Invader." "Earthmaker, Singer, and Invader be th=
substance of infinity."=20
