on The Antagonist

This is the character who works to Prevent the Protagonist from winning. Couple this motivation with a penchant for getting people to Reconsider and you have the workings of a classic Antagonist. Give them the Influence Character role and suddenly you have the makings of a classic Villain (think the Joker in The Dark Knight). And no, James Bond is NOT the Antagonist no matter what someone tells you, it just doesn't play out.

Rid yourself of writer's block. Forever.
