Main Character Throughline
the personal point-of-view in regards to conflict
In order to properly address our mind's understanding of conflict, a complete story must account for four distinct perspectives. The Main Character Throughline offers the first-person subjective "I" point-of-view. Note that, as with all Throughlines, this perspective does not define what the Main Character "sees" or believes to be the problem—rather, this is the Author's understanding of conflict in the story from that intimate point-of-view.
The Main Character is not a real person—he is a placeholder for perspective, a means by which the Audience can appreciate the mind of the story.
