Types of characters
By: Ivonne Chavarria
A static character is someone who does not change over time; his or her personality does not transform or evolve.
A dynamic character is a person who changes over time, usually as a result of resolving a central conflict or facing a major crisis. Most dynamic characters tend to be central rather than peripheral characters, because resolving the conflict is the major role of central characters.
A flat character is the opposite of a round character. This literary personality is notable for one kind of personality trait or characteristic.
A rounded character is anyone who has a complex personality; he or she is often portrayed as a conflicted and contradictory person.
