Day- Day is one of the Republic's most wanted guys. He is a fifteen year old who grew up in the poor parts of the Republic. He was supposedly executed but June helped him escape. He has bright blue eyes and long white, blonde hair. He also has a limp in one of his legs.
Tess- Tess was abandoned by her parents when she was ten. She was taken in by Day and lived with him on the streets. She is now thirteen and part of the Patriots. She is extremely jealous of June because Day likes June and not her.
Anden Stravropoulos- Anden is the new Elector of the Republic. He isn't taken as seriously as his father was and has many different views than he did. It is believed that he may have a love interest in June.
As the plan unfolds and June goes to speak with Elector and lead him to his assassination, she learns that he is nothing like his father. She must make the decision to let the Patriots carry through with their plans to kill him, or risk her own life and stop the assassination plot.
During the rising action, which is the second part in the order of plot, we see how June and Day push their way up into the Patriot's ranks and you see them make their way towards the climax of the book which is the task of killing the new Elector.
The third element of plot is the climax. This is the main part of the story where June convinces Day to not kill the elector and they have to struggle to get away from the people who put them up to the task of killing him.
After the climax, you have falling action where Day and June get back to the Republic and they are saved because of siding with the Elector and keeping the patriots from killing him.
Finally, the last element of plot is the revolution. In Prodigy, the resolution is more tragic than good. As Day gets back to be with Eden and can finally be with June, he finds out that he is dying. He then cuts off contact with June to spare his feelings and hers.
