A character is person in a novel, movie or play. There are a couple types of characters. The protagonist is the character that has a lot of drama and is one if the main characters. The antagonist is the person who is on the opposing side of the protagonist.

Major Characters:
  • Arther Dent: Arthur Dent is a protagonist in the book The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Arthur is a 30 year old male. page 1.
  • Ford Prefect: Ford Prefect is Arthers Friend on the earth for 15 years, Also a protagonist. pages 10-11
  • Vogon: The antagonist. Trying to destroy earth for a bypass page 41


Ethical Dilemma

I think that an ethical dilemma in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is when Arthur's house has bulldozers infront of it. This is an example of individual vs. community because Arthur doesn't want to take his house because they want to build a highway where his house is.
